    56-year-old Cynthia Tatman was fatally struck early Tuesday morning while jogging in the Norwood Park neighborhood on a four-lane stretch of Devon Avenue where high-speed driving is common. At around 7:05 a.m., Tatman was running east in the westbound lanes on the 6300 block of West Devon Avenue, police said.

  • Unavoidable? It was VERY AVOIDABLE. There is a nice trail adjacent to where she was putting her life in peril. I'm sorry for her family's loss but this could have been avoided if proper precautions were taken.

  • On that same day I nearly hit a man on a bike in the road. He was riding north in the southbound lane of Central by the golf course and was not visible around the curve. We were just a few seconds from also being in the news that day.

Accident on Devon.

I got flagged down by a woman while traveling east on Devon away from the Nagle/Mikwawkee intersection. A woman she had struck was lying motionless in a ditch. An fireman was on the scene assisting, but I called 911 just in case. The ambulance arrived shortly. I was wondering if anyone has any more information on what happened.

  • miesterburger just a regular guy

    I saw this runner every day coming home, working 3rd shift. Head down, dark clothes, on shoulder of caldwell.

  • EBKitty Stalking around EB

    I have walked on that shoulder many times but I keep my head up.

    There are some really great movies that were shown this summer, of the ones I know -- American classics such as The Wizard of Oz. I'm glad Wall-E was shown, and Inside Out seemed very good to me. It's interesting (briefly) to adopt a moralistic perspective on these films, and how things have changed (or not) since Hollywood's golden age (under the old Hayes Codes). Cool Hand Luke is a martyr-the-individualist film, with one notable salacious scene and some vivid physical torture. The Sting of course glorifies con men (even if it's in the course of taking down another criminal). Some Like It Hot, one of my personal all time favorites, is about as perverse as a popular entertainment could be when it was released in 1959, and though played for laughs the sexual hijinks, impostures and reversals remain the heart of the film. The public voted for The Dark Knight -- so be it. But maybe in this case curation would help introduce something onscreen less familiar but more heartening for our citizenry.

  • @Jazzmandel: If you are into classic movies, be sure to catch the Coen Bros :Hail, Caesar". Hilarious parody of the studios set in 1950. Probably not appearing in movies in the parks for quite a few years, though.
