The [Friday] Papers

"It's an equation any math teacher should be able to solve: 1 check for $3,000 + X recipient = 1 successful charitable donation," the Tribune reports.

"But after both the Park District and public library in Morton Grove declined to accept the $3,000 he raised, high school math teacher and atheist blogger Hemant Mehta is hoping he and fellow atheists can find a home for their contribution with a local food pantry.

"I can't believe how hard it is to get rid of $3,000," he said in a YouTube video, announcing plans to give the money to the Niles Township Food Pantry.

Here's that video:

"A man wanted in connection with a $1 million jewelry heist earlier this year in Pine Township was arrested early Friday in Chicago, according to police," WPXI in Pennsylvania reports.

"Authorities said 30-year-old Oscar Rodriguez was stopped by police after officers said he was standing in the middle of South Kedzie Avenue just before 3 a.m."

Getaway City
"Investigators on the hunt for a cold-blooded cop killer expanded their dragnet Friday to Chicago - five days after the suspect opened fire while making a getaway from a Mississippi bank," the New York Daily News reports.

Cluster Suck
"DeMet's Candy Company, the creator of Flipz chocolate pretzels and Turtles covered nut clusters that was founded in Chicago in 1898, is being sold to the Turkish owner of Godiva Chocolates for $221 million," Reuters reports, citing a Wall Street Journal report.

"DeMet's Candy Company was originally started in 1898 as a Chicago candy store business and soda shop by George DeMet. The DeMet family grew the business in the Chicago area over the next 50 years before it sold the company to a Canadian chocolate maker."

Crime Wave
"The positive news is that Archer-Daniels-Midland is doing the right thing and remaining in Illinois despite getting no 'bribe' to do so, but a negative variation is the state's wrong-headed attempt - along with more than 20 other states - to woo Boeing's proposed plant by giving into economic extortion," Bill Knight writes for the Pekin Daily Times.

"It's past time for consumers and government, together and separately, to stand up and stop corporate blackmail."
