    Right-turn-on-red was established at a time of high gas prices, to save gas from burning at an idle car.

    That time has past. The right-turn-on-red light permission law should be abolished. A life is worth more than gasoline.

  • Steven Vance Urban planner

    It was a negligible gas saver (in cities) at best, and a cause of increased injuries and fatalities (in cities) at worst. And bicyclists and pedestrians are disproportionately impacted by RTOR crashes.

    The 10 Best Neighborhood Parks In Chicago

    Safe parks are result of actions by neighbors. Parks are like condos--they are owned in common by all us with our tax dollars. A safe park has people who call 311 for graffiti removal and repairs, pick up trash and show by action that the park is important to them. When graffiti and trash are removed regularly gangs do not feel safe and leave. Some of the safest parks, like the ones listed, have an advisory council which any neighborhood can start with as little as 3 people. Some park advisory councils work with the police and report issues to them, park supervisors and park security. Councils use their park for meeting, events and clean ups and represent their park at commission and budget hearings. Like schools, parks increase the value of surrounding homes and good safe parks add even more value. Kudos to the councils of these parks and thank you.

BROWN: State rep, adopted, ‘always wanted a sister,’ now has 3

The mother raised her family a mile from Feigenholtz’s own childhood home near Peterson and Kimball before getting divorced and moving back East.

    BROWN: State rep, adopted, 'always wanted a sister,' now has 3
    PHILADELPHIA - State Rep. Sara Feigenholtz arrived at the Democratic National Convention last week with one of her three sisters by her side, which in and of itself isn't so unusual. Many delegates bring guests. What made it most extraordinary was that until three weeks ago, the 59-year-old North Sider had never met her sisters.
