The Weekend Desk Report

"Three people were trapped in a Gold Coast elevator before being rescued by firefighters," the Sun-Times reports.

Their names were Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer, who were being held up by the third, a chap named Billy Beane.

Quinn Sin Bin
"A federal grand jury has issued a subpoena for e-mails of key players in Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn's troubled $54.5 million anti-violence program, including the former head of the program and two former ranking members of Quinn's administration," the Tribune reports.

Quinnochio said he welcomed the probe.

Payton Prep
"A 20,000-square-foot Lincoln Park mansion officially came on the market on Monday at $18.75 million, making it the city's highest-priced single-family home listing," the Tribune reports.

Bruce Rauner said he no longer needed the home now that his daughter was out of high school.

Chicken Ranch
"An 11,000-square-foot historic mansion in Lake Forest sold for $5.75 million, the highest sale price on record in seven years in the upper-crust town," Crain's reports.

Bruce Rauner said he no longer needed the home now that his daughter was out of high school.

Waterworld
"Gov. Pat Quinn approved several laws aimed at increasing boater safety Saturday during a holiday weekend when many Illinois residents are out on lakes and rivers," AP reports.

The biggest change: Boats belonging to Bruce Rauner are no longer allowed on Illinois lakes and rivers, which will decongest the waterways considerably.
