    Wonderful news. A new "special" business coming to R.P. The partnership with Heartland is a perfect match.

    By-the-way, I've gone to Heartland for dinner 3-4 times now over the past 18 months. A much better menu and better service. I am proud that Heartland has been able to correct some of the problems they have had. I say proud because Heartland conjures up emotional connections. Heartland is a true Chicago gem and has a feeling that cannot simply be fabricated. It only happens over time. Very difficult to duplicate.

    If you have not been to Heartland recently -- try them again. Tom the new owner and his crew are changing for the good.

The gang member, 19, was with two other males walking south on the 6900 block of N. Clark St. shortly after 10 p.m., police said. As officers approached in their patrol vehicle they heard him shout, “Latin Kings! Woo! Woo!” at two people as their groups passed each other on the sidewalk.

Officers took the 20-year-old into custody shortly after noon on the 2000 block of W. Norwood St. 

Armed gunmen wearing masks robbed the Andersonville T-Mobile store at 5353 N. Clark St. 

A witness told police that while she was driving she saw a man sit down on the curb as if in distress and stopped to help him. When officers arrived the 23-year-old said he’d been on the 5800 block of N. Sheridan Rd. about 5 p.m. when he heard a gunshot.
