    75 CPS schools now have tested positive for lead
    Chicago Public Schools has 75 elementary schools with amounts of lead in their drinking water that have tested above federally acceptable standards. That's about 18 percent so far of the 422 grade schools run by the city's school system. CPS released the updated numbers after 8 p.m.

    Water supply mains beneath Chicago streets contain no lead. But the service lines which connect a building to the large water supply main beneath the street generally contain lead. Corrosion inside lead pipes will release lead into a building's water. But Chicago water treatment plants add corrosion inhibitors to the water supply to build up a coating inside pipes which prevents the release of lead. Unless the service line to a home has been damaged or disturbed in some way, damaging the protective coating, there should be no lead getting into a home's tap water. Flint, Michigan's water supply used to be lead free because they routinely added corrosion inhibitors. Because of escalating costs Flint switched their water supply from more expensive Lake Huron water to less expensive Flint River water. What they didn't test for and find out was that Flint River water was more than eight times more corrosive. On top of that, Flint stopped using corrosion inhibitors when they switched from Lake Huron to the Flint River. Corrosion started throughout the city and lead began escaping into the water supply. That's what created their problem and health scare - incompetent water treatment and false cost savings.

    Illegal immigration is illegal. So is heroin trafficking, doing drive by shootings that kill innocent bystanders.

    Illegal immigration is illegal. So is heroin trafficking, doing drive by shootings that kill innocent bystanders.

    I long since tired of Chicago criminal anarchy all in the name of some trendy cause.

    Chicago can not be a "sanctuary city" that doesn't enforce laws against illegal immigration - this leads directly to Islamic terrorists gate crashing our city and setting up cells here as has been done in France, Germany and Belgium.

    Sorry, this guy has had 2 decades to get his papers in order, if he can't get it done, he needs to go home.

    Mexico isn't a poor country. Mexico has more $ billionaires than any Spanish speaking country. The richest man in the world Carlos Slim is Mexican.

    It's long since time to simply enforce our laws and protect our own people.

  • Finally, someone is hearing us...may it happen and happen quickly.

  • Hairston has ignored us for years regarding permit parking in East Hyde Park.

    As a result whenever we have street cleaning the out-of-state licensed vehicles never move and it should be noted that many of them have been parking in the neighborhood for years.
