He wrote that it is no longer unusual for robins to remain throughout the winter. If kindly individuals put out the area food supply, a certain number of robins will remain rather than fly south. Depending on how much bird feed is put out, sometimes as many as half of the robins in a given area will remain. Homeland Security's Na- politano told Congress the U.S. faces a terror threat.

By Mike Lakin Starting in January, some tickets issued by the Mt.-Pulaski City Police Department have been on city ordinance viola- tions instead of state violations.

The ticket fine is 100% income to the city. If written as a state violation, a big portion of the fine money goes to the state. Writing a city ordinance violation gives an advantage to the person receiving the ticket. The ticket recipient does not have the offense reported to the Illinois Secretary of State. It does not go on the recipient's state driving record. Also, the ticket is paid at City Hall... no trip to the County Court- house. But. If the ticket isn't paid, it's off to court.
