    Where to Watch the Blackhawks' Playoff Games in Chicago

    @Omar - You are absolutely correct about the trash littering both sides of the fenced in Union Pacific right of way. UP does little to no ongoing maintenance. The last time I saw UP crews was last Spring when they cut down some of the taller weed-like trees along the embankment.

    If neighbors want to take the initiate and clean up along the embankment, they risk a charge of criminal trespass not to mention tetanus and animal bites.

    Helen NoH - Yes, you are correct. There is sort of a strange contradiction with the evolution of gangs. The hierarchy of "The Mob" used to be the model. It provided control and accountability. There were rules and there were consequences for breaking the rules. But the existence of that sort of hierarchical structure also made it easier for prosecutors to establish the first step in a RICO case - proving the existence of an organization.

    So, many gangs abandoned that "top down" structure to make it more difficult to establish the baseline RICO requirement. The problem is, less structure, less control, more "free agents" and less accountability.

    An Illinois Street Gang RICO Act was signed into law by Gov. Pat Quinn in 2013. Forty one members of the Black Souls, a West side street gang, were arrested in 2014 and 23 were charged under the new Illinois RICO Act but I can't find any follow up information about convictions. Earlier this year a federal jury convicted six members of the Hobos, a Chicago street gang, under RICO charges. Sentencing hearings, which can bring as much as life in prison, begin on June 23rd. This will bring the total number of Hobos convicted under the federal RICO statute up to ten. https://www.justice.gov/usao-ndil/pr/six-members-violent-chicago-street-gang-convicted-federal-racketeering-conspiracy And farther north, up in Waukegan, as many as 21 gang members have been convicted under the Illinois RICO Act. http://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/lake-county-news-sun/crime/ct-lns-rico-racketeering-plea-st-0121-20170120-story.html

Rogers Park Welcomes First Avocado Store

Ever since he was a young boy, growing up in Nigeria, Augustine Emuwa enjoyed a daily treat: eating avocados. Now, years later, Mr. Emuwa is bringing his life’s joy to Rogers Park – by opening the first ever store dedicated exclusively to his favorite food. Insert photo. Located on the corner of Touhy and Clark, in a former law office serving mostly a Latino clientle, Mr. Emuwa’s store features a full array of items, all made from his favorite fruit. Fruit? Mr. Emuwa eagerly explains: “You might be inclined to call it a vegetable, thanks to its green hue and savory taste, but the avocado is technically a fruit, and even more specifically, a single-seeded berry.” Emuwa continues. “People don’t realize the variety of things one can do with avocados. Avocado chips. Avocado fries. Bacon, lettuce and avocado sandwiches. Come in for breakfast and try our delicious avocado omelets!” Pointing at his new pizza oven, Emuwa face brightens with his newest offerings: “And people are going to love our avocado pizzas! They’ll never want tomato based pizzas again!” In cooperation with Gale Math & Science Academy (1631 W. Jonquil), Emuwa is using the school’s renowned 3rd floor garden and green space as a research lab, with impressive results. At Gale’s green space, two of Emuwa’s sales clerks, Tonia Andreina and Shapree Mallory, both of whom are also biologists experienced in genetic modification, are changing the culinary world with their latest discovery: orange avocados. “We think orange avocados will help stimulate sales” says Ms. Andreina. “Many kids simply aren’t drawn to foods that are green.” [where: ]

    @Gabriel - the current product of public schools is why parents sacrifice to pay for private or charter schools - they want to offer their child an better opportunity to graduate with the knowledge and language skills needed to land at least a middle income job and begin a career - good parents want more for their children then they experienced. As a person who interviewed and hired many individuals I was amazed at the lack of communication skills of public school children - often i couldn't understand their English. The good news is they helped me to scale down the candidates.
