Gov. Quinn has scheduled an announcement with IDNR director Marc Miller at 10:30 Thursday morning in Springfield on “the state’s renewed focus on its natural resources and recreational opportunities for its citizens.”
That will likely translate, as promised earlier by Quinn and first reported here on Dec. 12, into reopening of the state parks closed by former Gov. Blagojevich.
The interesting part in this will be how they will manage to open the parks without rehiring staff in thses tough times.
So far the people I’ve talked with don’t have an answer on that.
But from the bottom of my heart I hope signs like this go back to being seasonal.
