The number of plastic bags customers use is down 42 percent just since the new ordinance was introduced in February. Only 49% of customers are using plastic bags, down from 82% before. And the number of customers who bring their own re-usable bags to stores has tripled. Big success.

Hi all, looking to get some mechanical work on a subaru outback. Any recommendations for places that have a loaner car available? I use my car to get to and from work every day!
Something pretty big happened to be the catalyst for a massive police, fire, and ambulance response somewhere north of Morse in the Sheridan area. Anybody know what the cause was?

I just moved to the area this past weekend and have no idea what to really expect in terms of crime and parking in the area. I live about a 10 minute walk to the Howard L stop and right around the corner from the local Food Mart and Lundry mat. Can anyone shed some light and advice about the area? I will committing via car out of the city for work, can't afford to live outside of the city as my girlfriend will be working most likely in the loop. Thanks everyone! Happy Easter!

Armed immigration agents broke into a northwest-side home just before 6:30am on Monday morning and then shot the wrong man who, allegedly, was unarmed. The family has lived in the house for at least 30 years and all members are documented. This is too close to home here in Rogers Park. Attend community meetings and learn your rights.

Additional affordable housing has been proposed for Rogers Park but the local Chamber of Commerce opposes it. The Chamber's secretary, an alternative priest who preaches in in an Elmhurst Masonic Lodge and has a postal address near Gary, Indiana, speaks against affordable Rogers Park housing and calls the Alderman a "concubine of big box interests." https://www.facebook.com/bishop.wilkowski Why is the local chamber being supported by outside religious interests and opposing affordable housing in Rogers Park? Shouldn't the chamber support commerce and not oppose it? Has the local chamber gone roque?

My husband passed away in late 2014 and he had a couple of credit cards and at that thime those companies told me at the time I was NOT responsible for repaying because I was not a co-signer. Now i have received 1099's showing those written-off balances as income. Because we were married, do I have to claim those write-offs as income? Really need a tax professional or lawyer to weigh in on this. Thanks!

3:30 pm 5.3.14 and driving at touhy and western a 1997 brown GMC yukon with tinted window was blaring his aftermarket woofer at the stop sign that my car is shaking and can't hear my own stereo inside the car. After that short stop, I feel like I'm underwater or at high elevation and have loss my hearing. It's 9:17 pm now and my ear is still aching. Police should stop these people. That guy should pay for medical checkup that I may need. Can you stop people with loud annoying bass from driving?
