The [Tuesday] Papers

1. Chicago Employers Among Those Rushing To Hire Temporary Immigrant Workers.

"Intense demand for seasonal foreign workers has crashed a federal government website, leaving many employers across the country wondering if they'll be able to hire those workers. Some Chicago businesses rely on temporary seasonal workers, including landscapers and other service workers," WBEZ reports.

"H-2B visas are for low-skilled seasonal foreign workers in nonagricultural jobs. There are only 33,000 such visas available nationwide. Employers submitted three times as many applications for eligible workers with those visas in one day, crashing the website through which employers submit their applications."

2. Chicago Organizations That Support Survivors And Work To Prevent Sexual Violence.

"The recent airing of Lifetime's Surviving R. Kelly documentary series fueled this list of Chicago organizations making that third one a reality for tens of thousands of survivors every year," the Reader writes.

"These nonprofits and agencies offer free or low-cost services such as medical and legal advocacy, emergency and transitional housing, and individual, group, and family counseling for survivors of all ages and their loved ones. They also provide education, training, and prevention programs to stop rape culture once and for all."

3. 23 Years After Drunken Crash That Killed His Friend, McHenry County Man Sent To Prison For DUI.

"Nearly 25 years ago, Dennis Zidek crashed his car in McHenry after a night of drinking beer, killing his friend and passenger Peterson Doud," the Tribune reports.

Just 18 at the time, Zidek was given probation and spent a few months in jail on work release.

But on Monday, Zidek, now 41, was ordered to prison after he was convicted recently of driving under the influence - charges that were heightened because of his involvement in the long-ago crash.

As family quietly looked on, Zidek was cuffed and led away by a McHenry County sheriff's deputy after he was sentenced to two years in prison on the aggravated DUI guilty plea, which stemmed from Zidek being found intoxicated and nonresponsive in a parked but running car in Richmond in 2016, authorities said.

Zidek, of Wonder Lake, must serve at least half of his sentence and then will be placed on supervised release for a year. He could have faced up to 10 years in prison had he been convicted at trial. An additional charge of driving on a suspended license was dropped in exchange for his plea.

4. Landlord Mark Fishman Kicked Me Out Of My Ward Office, Ald. Carlos Ramirez-Rosa Says.

"A long-standing feud between Ald. Carlos Ramirez-Rosa (35th) and controversial landlord Mark Fishman boiled over this month when Fishman evicted Ramirez-Rosa and State Rep. Will Guzzardi out of their shared office on Sawyer Avenue," Block Club Chicago reports.

"Fishman alleges Ramirez-Rosa and Guzzardi (D-Chicago) owed more than $42,000 in back rent - a dispute stretching back to December 2015 when Fishman bought the building at 2708-2710 N. Sawyer Ave.

"But Ramirez-Rosa contends Fishman manufactured the dispute in an effort to have power over him, to 'bully and buy him,' as he describes it."

5. Man Whose Twin Brother Is Serving Time For Murder Also Headed To Prison For Fatal Shooting.

"A man who was sentenced in the fatal shooting of an Evanston resident will join his twin brother in the Illinois prison population," the Tribune reports.

"Dominic Connerly, 27, apologized to the family of the shooting victim before he was sentenced last week to 15 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections . . . Connerly's twin brother, Darien Connerly, is currently serving a 35-year sentence for the murder of cabdriver Leodis Blackburn in Evanston in 2011."
