Of the 18 counts of corruption that sent former Governor Rod Blagojevich to prison, 5 of them were dropped in July. But that still leaves 13 counts against him. Blagojevich and his family were elated, but that changed when they learned that his sentence of 14 years would most likely not be reduced. No doubt, he will be let out earlier than that, though... probably for being such a model prisoner.
Good Foods Group relocated to Pleasant Prairie from Illinois a couple of years ago. In July, Good Foods completed their expansion, with Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch joining in the celebration. Kurt Penn, CEO and founder of Good Foods thanked Wisconsin and only had good things to say about their relationship. Just another good company that Illinois let go.
