The [Monday] Papers

For completists, there was no column on Friday, nor a Weekend Desk Report.

"A federal agency's proposal to build an extension of a national veterans cemetery in Chicago's northwest suburbs is drawing concerns from one local official about periodic rifle volleys expected at the site," AP reports.

"The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs hopes to acquire 15 acres in South Barrington for an extension of the Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery, the Daily Herald reported."

From the Daily Herald:

South Barrington would become home to an extension of Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery for military veterans under a federal agency's proposal that's drawn concern from the village's mayor about periodic rifle volleys expected at the site.

Under what's called an urban initiative, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs wants to acquire 15 acres near Mundhank and Freeman roads for the columbarium cemetery. Documents show federal officials are developing a master plan to start with 5,000 niches for cremated remains to be placed in a series of walls, growing to 50,000 over 100 years . . .

Ceremonies would occur at the proposed South Barrington cemetery, including rifle volleys honoring the veterans before they are laid to rest. The rifle fire is expected three to five times per weekday when there are burials . . .

But South Barrington Mayor Paula McCombie, who stressed she supports veterans, said the "misguided" proposal would not fit in an area that includes the Barrington Homestead Estates and The Preserve of South Barrington residential subdivisions. Cook County's Paul Douglas Forest Preserve is just west of the VA's proposed project.

"We would love to have them in South Barrington, but at that location, considering they're going to be firing guns off three to five times a day in a residential district and disturbing the peace of the residents that back up to the facility, we have to wait to hear from our residents to see what their opinion is of this," McCombie said.
