More than 100 Chicago Park District drinking fountains across the city have been running nonstop for months because tests showed these fountains deliver dangerously high lead-levels when they are returned to manual push-button operation. Six more fountains continued to deliver exceedingly high levels of lead even under continuous flow conditions and have been shut off. Fountains run continuously at Juneway Beach and Loyola Park (3 fountains). This results in a loss of about 2,300 gallons of drinking water each day. Touhy Park has at least one fountain completely shut down.

I posted this in the existing thread, but it's not sending me an email notification that a new comment was posted, so just in case it's not notifying anyone else - I'm posting it here.
I guess Judy's so happy and relieved - she hasn't been back here to update, so I hope she won't mind if I report that Little Boy is back home - and in pretty good condition! I know (like me) many of you take a very personal interest when pets are missing. This poor guy who was recovering from surgery was gone for two weeks, so this is an especially happy (and lucky) ending.
Welcome home, LB!

Does anyone know why the Grill Inn closed? It never seemed that busy, but I assumed they had enough take out and delivery business to make it. I'm happy that Empirical Brew Pub has opened, and even Dunkin' Donuts, but we seem to have lost more businesses than we've gained on Morse over the last few years. It's looking pretty dismal. I'd love to know what efforts are being made to make the area more attractive for new business.

Anyone else wondering why there is no glass in the parking garage and the new apartments on Morse Ave have not been started, especially since they had ground breaking 3 months ago?

Hi. I'm trying to learn what the current median cost per buildable square foot of land is in Rogers Park. My particular interest is in land utilized for single-family or two-flat residential use. My online searching seems to produce information pertaining primarily to the Chicago Loop. Does anybody have that information, or perhaps any ideas of where I might be able to find it? (A relative has inherited a property in need of substantial work, and is trying to decide what to do with it.)
Thanks in advance for any guidance.

I haven't heard anything about the prosecution of these two criminals in some time. I genuinely believe that a fair disposition of their case would be to serve a mandatory 20 years in the USMC or a mandatory term of 20 years in prison. If they would choose for the military, they would be on felony probation for that entire 20 year term, and should they withdraw from the service or be less than honorably discharged the balance of that time would be subject to be seven in incarceration. There is absolutely no excuse for their actions
