    Live again all of that is great but it also doesn't change the fact that there are quite likely qualified teachers that could work at CMSA but for one reason or another they've chosen to skirt the law and do a 'catch me if you can' moral argument... It started with this program in technology fields and the question becomes when does it stop? If you feel that the results are what matters and nothing else, why have immigration laws at all, just let anyone who wants come work in the US at whatever the market will bear.

    What fascinates me is the "dialect" many of our students speak - then they wonder why employers won't hire them into the workplace. We need to encourage "correct" English so they have a chance at jobs. This is why some students elect to go to private or charter schools -

Eric Vaughn Still Awaiting Trial 3 Years After Wil Lewis Murder

Appearantly crossing the "T's" and dotting the "I's" is a lengthy process. Gang affiliated, violent habitual criminal Eric Vaughn still has not gone to trial for the Murder of Wil Lewis for which he was responsible. Let's hope that our criminal justice system is merely p being prudent in its prosecution rather than dropping the ball in procrastination and that this filth will never breath air as a free man again in his lifetime.

Were the popcycle girls from Rogers-park?

The third judge, Jaye P. Morgan, would award them a 10, quipping, "Do you know? That's how I started." (She was rewarded with a popsicle from one of the girls before they left the stage.)

A thinly veiled commentary on American race relations, Get Out uses the horror genre to dramatize fears about the persecution of African-Americans and the suppression of black identity.

Need some tax advice

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!

  • dj long time RP home owner

    An update. One fact I inadvertently omitted was that those 1099's were addressed to my late husband (he died 2 1/2 yrs ago). There was no estate, no assets to distribute. I consulted my lawyer and he said that since they were addressed to my late husband to ignore them, but to hold on to them.

  • Wazzup not available

    you got the advantages of those purchases - the least you can do is pay the income taxes. the vendor gets stiffed - but the taxpayers shouldn't have to pay for your enjoyment of your husbands purchases. He was your partner and you agreed to "for better or worse". You filed jointly -so you pay jointly.

Gunshots in Rogers Park.

Anyone else hear gunshots around 1:35am this morning near Jonquil or Juneway? There were 4-5 shots in a row.

  • I heard that too, around 2:05am. I lived on Sheridan but my room is facing east lake terr and Rogers. I thought the shots came from East lake Terr. Anyone knows where that happened?

  • Yeah, same alley as above. Maybe this is weird, but it almost sounded like someone was bored and decided to unload a clip, because there were two slow shots, a pause, and then six more shots in succession. I didn't hear any voices or anything afterward.
