Noticeably missing was a wallet or any form of identification, but the address book listed "Elaine Trapp" of 1853 N. Sawyer Ave. as its owner. Nordstrom is hoping to reunite the lost purse with the owner's family.

    Congress Theater Yields More Treasures, Including Depression-Era Purse
    LOGAN SQUARE - Urban archaeologist Eric Nordstrom took yet another trip inside Congress Theater's air circulation chamber (called a plenum) and found more treasures, including a rusted-shut purse full of personal items. After managing to pry open the purse, Nordstrom found a rosary, a pen, two tubes of lipstick, an address book, liquid foundation, Anacid (modern-day Advil) and a Kelvyn Park pin inside.

For the past few nights a band has been practicing, fully amped outside in the back parking area. It's just after midnight and they are still at it. I haven't slept in several nights. Can anyone shed some light on this?

    Labor contracts only last for an agreed up period of time - and are then open for negotiation again.

    The CTU may have agreed to increased pension in lieu of a raise for one contract period but that doesn't last forever. The labor contract between the CTU and the CPS includes what is agreed to for that contract and that contract period only. No more and no less.

    Like any negotiations, reach and agreement or suffer the consequences.

  • So other than the accurate info on cakepops, if you are going to argue about why my property taxes are soaring now I would recommend you not forget about the other huge broke pensions in our beloved city.
    And I am not a teacher or firefighter, just so you know there,
