Skating rink to re-open in Galesburg

GALESBURG, ILL. — The Skate Palace is expected to re-open in mid-October, according to its co-owner Dee Hurd. The skating rink, which is located at 1855 E. Knox St., closed about two years ago after having been intermittently closed prior to that. Hurd’s father Dan Reynolds bought the rink with his wife in 1979. The building’s zoning request was unanimously approved by the Planning and Zoning Commision on Tuesday night. The Skate Palace has three months to start operations. (Source: The Register-Mail)

Hackers acquire 5.6 million fingerprints

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Hackers took fingerprints from 5.6 million federal employees, the Office of Personnel Management announced Wednesday. The Office of Personnel Management is the main custodian of the government’s most important personal records. American intelligence agents have attributed the attack to China. It is unclear which organization is behind the attack. One of the biggest concerns about the breach is that the hackers have the potential to identify intelligence agents, defense personnel or government contractors. Other data on the forms could be potentially used for blackmail. (Source: The New York Times)
