    Big Star Dropped Its Cash-Only Policy, But Many City Spots Are Holding Out
    CHICAGO - Big Star might have ditched its cash-only policy, but the city still has a lot of holdouts. The restaurant made the big switch and started accepting credit cards because guests wanted the change, technology has advanced and Big Star needed to move forward with the neighborhood, said Kim Lyons, a spokeswoman for Big Star.

    Nowadays a lot of the ATM's are owned or leased by the location. Over the years I have managed 6 locations that had ATM's. There was only one restaurant that didn't own or lease the machine, and they took 50% of the fee. If a store isn't getting paid by having an on premise ATM then they are getting ripped off.

  • Uptown Arts Council Director-Artist: Jeffrey Littleton

    Friends don't let friends use those private little ATMs...they are a magnet for credit-skimming schemes that don't fly on the more sophisticated bank-owned machines.

    CPS to test for lead in water at 28 elementary schools
    Chicago Public Schools announced Thursday the list of 28 elementary schools being tested for lead, a measure CEO Forrest Claypool insisted was being taken "out of an abundance of caution."
    http://chicago.suntimes.com

  • CJL ...

    "Wonder What really happened that raised a red flag to conduct testing for lead"

    Assuming this is a serious question:

    1. Flint.
    2. Chicago Tribune investigation that Chicago was using BS testing methodology in selecting locations for water quality testing.
    3. It's kids, who are most susceptible to bad effects of lead.

    I'd bet a dollar that *most* of the older south and west side schools will show elevated lead levels in the water. Probably not truly high, but elevated.

  • CJL

    This is a serious question

    I did not realize the entire importance of this testing lead

    Thanks for the info. Hopefully, there isn't any found
