A this particular Board wants to hire a superintendent a Buckingham said. Homerding has gone on record As opposing the hiring of a superintendent for an estimated $60,000 salary for financial and other reasons. A i done to believe in deficit spending a Homerding said. The Park District is not Large enough to require a superintendent Homerding said. The two current administrative positions recreation director and maintenance Foreman serve the District More than adequately he submitted for the superintendent position have been whittled Down to four Buckingham said. The four applications will be sifted further and a superintendent May be named at the Park boards May 16 meeting Buckingham said. Dowaliby verdict continued from Page Al Der Jaclyn a said Midlothian police chief William Fischer. Fischer expressed Relief both on behalf of investigators who devoted Long hours on the Case and Community residents who feared that an outsider was in the Community lying in wait to snatch yet another youngster from a bedroom. The Dowaliby had maintained since Jaclyn a disappearance in september 1988 that an intruder broke into their Midlothian Home and abducted their daughter As they slept. I think the Community is relieved that a child murderer is not running around the streets of Midlothian. It puts it to rest a Fischer said. A i think Justice has been Thomas Murawski Village president echoed Fischer a remarks. A a in a sure people still find it difficult to accept the fact that a person could do a thing like that to his own child a Murawski said. A but if we believe in the judicial system then yes we do feel there is a closure in the Case and that there a nobody out there stalking. A the decision brought a closure to the Case. Unfortunately it did no to bring Jaclyn like prosecutors Fischer contends that Cynthia Dowaliby shared a role in her daughters murder even though evidence against her was scant. A i think that in my own heart she a culpable and responsible but the judge did what he had to do by Law a Fischer said of judge Richard Nev Illets decision to acquit Cynthia before sending the Case to the jury. Neville is granted such discretion by Law if he deems that the prosecution has not presented enough evidence against a defendant. In the Dowa Libys Case the jury did not learn that Cynthia was acquitted until after they had convicted David. When jurors returned immediately following the acquittal Neville told them Only that they would no longer be deciding Cynthia Scase. Some jurors told reporters later that they would have convicted Cynthia As Well. Other attorneys have speculated recently that Cynthia a acquittal May have increased the likelihood of David a conviction. Ralph Meczyk David a attorney has pledged to Appeal the Case. Meczyk and Daniel Franks who defended David together in the trial could not be reached for comment. Ron Allen a Law professor at Northwestern University said the Dowaliby Appeal will hinge either on the sufficiency of evidence presented by prosecutors or on the directions Given by judge Neville to jurors. In this particular Case it is More Likely the Quality of evidence will be challenged considering that Cynthia was acquitted of the same charges Allen said. However Allen said that it is not All that unusual for a judge to acquit one defendant and a jury to convict the other in a double trial. A a it a not typical but ifs not outlandishly unusual a he said. Based on statements made by jurors to reporters the Dowa Libys Appeal could eventually attract the attention of the Illinois supreme court Allen said. The defense had claimed that an intruder broke a basement window in the family a Home and entered As the Dowaliby slept. Jurors said they tested that claim during their deliberations by trying to crawl through a Model window provided by prosecutors to recreate the scenario. In doing so the jurors May have shifted the Burden of proof onto the Dowa Libys attorneys in effect reversing the Legal requirement that the prosecution prove the couples guilt. A it would be interesting to see the Illinois supreme courts reaction a Allen said. In another Legal matter that remains unanswered Cook county juvenile court officials said Friday that the Fate of the Dowa Libys 5-year-old son David jr., and 10-month-old daughter Carly remains in the hands of Cook county states attorneys. The children will be returned to Cynthia a custody unless prosecutors present evidence of child abuse against her. A from our Point of View the children should Back to Cynthia at this Point a said Patrick Murphy Cook county Public guardian. A so far the eanes continued from Page Al the local gop fractured Over a Challenge mounted by township trustee Bruce Barnes for Schumann a committeeman Post. Schumann handily Defeated Barnes with nearly 63 percent of the vote. But the Jeaness appointment was considered imperilled because of his perceived support of Barnes in the state has presented no evidence that she a done anything to the David or. Is currently in the custody of his fathers twin sister Rose Medema and her husband John of Midlothian. The Malias retain custody of Carly. A a Cynthia visits liberally so she almost has custody now a Murphy said. After the Dowaliby were charged with murder in late 1988, prosecutors also accused them of abusing David their Only other child. Carly was born in july of 1989. Although they Are accused the couple has not been formally charged with child abuse said Warren Watkins administrative assistant to the presiding juvenile court judge. A in order for this division to take any action a petition was filed alleging abuse neglect or dependency a Watkins said of the accusations. A that does not mean they have been criminally a charge of child abuse could have been filed to protect David jr., while his parents were imprisoned. A it could mean simply that the child a environment is injurious and that environment May not be fault of the parents a Watkins said. A in this Case it is quite possible that in Light of the outcome of the criminal matter there would be no need to go to criminal findings of child also contributing to this Story was Karin Meyer election. Palos fire Protection District trustees Are compensated $1,000 annually and Are responsible for overseeing the districts estimated $900,000 annual budget. The District which has nine full time firefighters serves portions of Palos Park Palos Heights Orland Park and the unincorporated areas of Palos continued from Page Al a i was convinced in my mind exactly what happened at that House a he said. Fischer agrees the Case Wasny to an easy one to figure out. A i think the jury had a very difficult time but they were not convinced of a during the trial the defense tried to implicate Perry Hernandez a Blue Island Man who faces charges of abducting a girl from her Home. The jury was faced with looking at Many aspects of the Case As admittedly the evidence against the Dowaliby was mostly circumstantial. A there was not one major thing that made the Case it was everything put together a Fischer agreed. The Dowa Libys decision to Stop cooperating with police at one Point in the investigation was interpreted differently a either they were Badgere Griffin continued from Page Al open and impartial investigation which will lift the Cloud from the presidents speaking out against the undocumented expense account Griffin said he planned to vote for proposed written College policies prohibiting undocumented College expense accounts and political contributions. A i be More against it undocumented expense accounts a he said. Although Griffin wondered what the College could do about the past political contributions from Gaskins undocumented account he said the a new polices could make a Good Public statement. A my biggest reason for running for the College Board a Griffin claimed a was the de politicization of the College. Anytime you can make a Public statement de politicizing the College its a healthy by authorities or they had something to hide. Still Fischer claims a there were so Many things that we did no to get cooperation on questions that we wanted answers to. It Wasny to Normal for grieving in the lengthy investigation police exhausted Many leads the chief contends. Some 20 unsolicited letters from psychics flooded the police office All Good intentioned and from individuals interested in helping out any Way possible he said. Fischer said he is proud of the investigation and the team Effort involved a police investigators volunteers and residents alike. A everybody jelled. We were one organization a no ranks involved or different identities a he said.
