  • Love in the Form of Plastic Folders!

    Ms. B. is asking for $284.39:
    My students need these folders for their texts that we read in classical literature. Having a solid folder will keep all their papers together so they can learn to the MAX!

The shooting occurred at about 4:15 p.m. in the 1100-block of West 95th Street. His nonprofit is nearby on 95th Street near the Dan Ryan Expressway.

The victim's nonprofit is much close to 100 W 95th (near the Dan Ryan).

    UPDATE 10:55 AM - Had to make some updates and tweaks to this post for better readability. It's generally a policy for this blog not to copy and paste whole articles. However I've left this article up in light of JP Paulus' points.

    Capitol Fax: Austin is no longer the city's largest neighborhood
    I'm sharing a direct tweet to an article about Austin losing its designation as Chicago's most populous neighborhood - though remaining the largest community area geographically. According to the Tribune article shared over at the Capitol Fax it loses this designation to the north side Lakeview neighborhood: Home to nearly 118,000 people in 2000, Austin has seen its population drop to 97,600, according to an average of census data collected between 2011 and 2015.

    Found this article over at Instapundit. They're talking about a local business that offers gun training classes. Javondlynn Dunagan, came up with the idea of gun training classes geared toward women, and for the "Ladies of Steel" gun club -- after successful training, the women gather twice a month to practice their skills.

HUFFPOST: Wake Up, Black Community

Boombox Chicago is coming to 79th & Rhodes

    HUFFPOST: Wake Up, Black Community
    There are two Chicagos, one Black and one White. There are two districts in the city - the White one north and the Black one combining the South and West Sides. By the time Mayor Rahm Emanuel's term is up in 2019, the city will be revamped, the redesign of Chicago will be complete, and the divide will be greater than ever through economic maneuvers.

WBEZ: Is Notoriously Segregated Chicago Becoming More Integrated?

Boombox Chicago is coming to 79th & Rhodes

    WBEZ: Is Notoriously Segregated Chicago Becoming More Integrated?
    To really look at the point of this article, let's look at the Ashburn community of the south side. How truly integrated is this part of the city But while the data suggests there are six more integrated communities in Chicago today than there were in the 1990s, the maps and the numbers don't tell us if residents actually feel integrated.
