    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.

    Richard I built coalitions across the city, neighborhood by neighborhood
    Richard II kept those coalitions largely together, and created an Hispanic organization (in specific communities) that gave him a solid voting majority.
    In Chicago- public policy has always been people policy. The reality has little to do with theoretical Goo-Go policies and best practices; however someone might dislike that.

    Again Richard 1 did not build coalitions except when it came to getting out the vote!
    Tax paying Chicagoans fled the city in record numbers under Daley1!
    Power was never shared with a disparity that makes today's Chicago look like Norway!
    Daley 2 only agreed to help build Hispanic voting blocks because Hispanics had become a real voting block.His father could have cared less when Hispanics had no voting power.
    Not because he thought it was more inclusive.
    Theoretical public policy / political science is called reality. It's outcome based rather than good press releases.
    Record numbers of poor leaving the city while record numbers of college educated coming back today.
    How terrible that we have a major who thinks investing in the people who actually pay the bills might be a good idea.
    Chicago pays the freight for a poverty population almost twice the national average.
    Chicago got almost 50 million visitors last year which generated over 1 billion dollars in added tax revenue. Not to mention the jobs this created.
    Sorry but no one flies into Chicago to hang out on the west or south sides.
    High income earners are not moving into Englewood!
    Fortune 500 companies are not drawn to Chicago because we have our share of GED grads.
    Sorry that Daley left us with a few less 500 billion dollar assets to sell in order to pay for what you call good politics.

  • Thanks for the offer mroper but I'm happy with DD as it is and not interested in a middle ground and slso am happy that you can enjoy whatever it is that you like to eat without people like me imposing our tastes and moral choices on you. Your taste in DD donut alternatives sounds very socially responsible and extremely healthy. No, I don't think DD will ever notice that you don't eat their food because they are too busy baking donuts and pouring coffee for the rest of us.

    Which is why I said that I don't advocate forcing anyone to give up their donuts and I said that there is always room for donuts, chocolate cake and cookies. Just as there is nothing morally wrong about DD, there is nothing wrong with other choices. There are plenty of morning customers for Dunkin Donuts and Taste of Heaven, Kopi, La Colombe, M Henry, Svea, Bongo Room, Coffee Studio, True North, Kanela Breakfast Club, and First Slice. They all have their fans and it is great that we have so many options.

    Really? Have you also asked for professional assistance on a volunteer basis for grantwriting, accounting and legal assistance too? Honestly. If you are envisioning a $609 million dollar project to bring a bout an equitable world and begin by asking free services from professional artists there is something something wrong with your vision.

People who rent out their condos.

Question. When you put your condo up for renting, do you include the assessments you pay in the price as well? I've never rented out property before so was hoping to get some answers from people that are doing this. Thanks!

  • Read all the fine print. Our condo board has "Amendment two" which states that the unit can only be leased due to hardship, i.e. You move to a nursing home not just that you need the money. For that reason, we are selling our unit and hoping to find one that allows a sublease with no hassles.

  • HarleyGrrl Why YES! People actually DO live on Clark St!

    A.S. that's what they are trying to tell you - there is a lot more to renting your condo than meets the eye. You have to know what the condo association allows. I have friends that may rent to only "relatives" and others that live in places that allow no rentals and others where the number of condo units rented is capped.

Hey, Hillary's Not From Park Ridge: Clinton Was Born In Edgewater

Clinton, who will speak Wednesday night as the Democratic nominee for president, was born on October 26, 1947, at the now-shuttered Edgewater Hospital on the city's Far North Side at 5700 N. Ashland Ave. The hospital closed in the late 1990s.

At the time, her parents, Dorothy and Hugh, were living in an eight-unit apartment building at 5722 N. Winthrop Ave. It was appropriately named "The Rodham," according to the Edgewater Historical Society.

    Hey, Hillary's Not From Park Ridge: Clinton Was Born In Edgewater
    EDGEWATER - National media describe Hillary Clinton as being from suburban Park Ridge. Well, kinda. Clinton, who will speak Wednesday night as the Democratic nominee for president, was born on October 26, 1947, at the now-shuttered Edgewater Hospital on the city's Far North Side at 5700 N. Ashland Ave.

  • Well, from toddler age onward, through school, she did grow up in Park Ridge. So, to many, she's "from" Park Ridge. I lived in 6 states by the time that I was 6 years-old, one a year (yes, my father was in regional sales positions). Does that mean that I'm "from" my birth state? Or states 2-5? Nope....
