    75 CPS schools now have tested positive for lead
    Chicago Public Schools has 75 elementary schools with amounts of lead in their drinking water that have tested above federally acceptable standards. That's about 18 percent so far of the 422 grade schools run by the city's school system. CPS released the updated numbers after 8 p.m.
    http://chicago.suntimes.com

  • I forgot to mention we drank water out of taps that had lead pipes, lead solder in our old house built in the early 1900's because we didn't have filters and bottled water back then. Hmmm.....

  • ddn

    If it does turn out that the levels are unsustainably high, then the suit I mentioned earlier would be fully warranted along with press conferences and coverage on the same scale as those for Flint, Mich. involving our own mayor and our governor. I am imagining that CUB and other entities would arrange and present the suit.

Howdy, Neighbor! Two Construction Crews on Adjacent Plots

The people at 810 North Clark Street aren’t complaining about the construction noise at 816 North Clark Street, or vice versa. That’s because both plots are devoid of residents, and populated only by construction crews.

    The people at 810 North Clark Street aren't complaining about the construction noise at 816 North Clark Street, or vice versa.

  • Sherian Lazy right now!

    Just where and who are all these rich people coming from to live in ALL the new construction going on in this city? I have never seen so many cranes in the skyline before. Does any thing think that Chicago is filled to the brim with wealthy/rich people that these condos and apts going up at these prices that they will be filled with tenants before they are done building? Talk about greed, Chicago is all about greed and violence any more.
