    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.
    http://chicago.suntimes.com

  • The lead in water is minimal; the real threat is lead paint. Even at CPS only about 3% of the fixtures tested had lead issues.

  • Mike Conover '90's HP block orginizing,CAPS- resident since '07

    The lead gets into Chicago water after it leaves the city supplies. there is some lead pieing within building, and most of the water supplies from main to building (which are for the most part not the water department's responsibility, but the building owners) build before the 70's are lead. Chicago takes significant efforts to mitigate those privately owned lead pipes. In this instance (where some drinking fountains test high and others do not) there is likely some old lead internal piping. Another problem for an already over-beleaguered CPS.

  • Bruce_ do you think this might have been a science project for the kids at Helen C. Peirce Elementary like the one you proposed for Gale Academy?

  • Wazzup not available

    healthy looking plants -I can never get my plants to grow as well - he must have a "green thumb"

    looks like enough for personal consumption - not worth the resources to support a law which is outdated.

  • Another Dunkin Donuts store is not progress. Their factory-made donuts are pathetically flavorless. Does anyone remember Mister Donut? Now there was a chain with integrity. Each location baked all its own products and you could watch the baker through a big plate glass window inside the store. Last one I knew of was on the west side of Clark between Granville and Devon. It was bought out 15 or so years ago by Dunkin. Personally, I will never darken a Dunkin door.

    Bertha, d3 I hear your pain. Dunkin Donuts lack sincerity, a sense of purpose and heritage. Without being forced to specify where the ingredients come from and who actually plants and harvests things like the wheat and sugar cane, we could be eating Franken-donuts with foreign child labor involved at some point in the supply chain. It's impossible to find a source of certified moral doughnuts made with love and patriotism because donuts are nothing but little profit centers for mega-corporations. Who knows the national origin or political affiliation of all the shareholders and important things like whether some of the wheat is surplus grain from Russia grown on soil still contaminated with fallout from Chernobyl and then passed through intermediate shell corporations before being shipped to our West Coast by Indonesian freight companies using American sounding names. Mister Donut (ミスタードーナツ, Misutā Dōnatsu), headquartered in Japan, still has integrity because you know that they all are handmade in Taiwan, South Korea, Mainland China, Philippines, Thailand, and El Salvador. Unfortunately the only American outlet is in Godfrey, Illinois and the donuts are stale by the time the get to Rogers Park.

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.
    https://www.dnainfo.com

  • 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....
