  • One specific death-trap is the intersection of Elm & LaSalle. We have cars trying to turn left onto LaSalle with obstructed views plus a large number of pedestrians trying to use the crosswalk against oncoming traffic in both directions. The traffic light at Maple & LaSalle would be better-placed at Elm & LaSalle. I know that would just one block away from the next light at Division, but something needs to be done there before it becomes the next fatality headline.

    Where You Can Buy A Christmas Tree In Chicago (MAP)
    CHICAGO - The holidays are here. Here's a map and list of lots where you can buy Christmas trees, wreaths and other festive foliage for the season. Most of these locations, alphabetized by neighborhood, will be open for the year by Nov. 25, the day after Thanksgiving.

  • PLSS Bowmanville

    I would love to support local but my Home Depot trees are around $35 for a 6'-7' blue spruce and live forever. I recently heard that the Christmas tree Miracle-Gro additive is amazing, I plan to pick some up this year.

  • Helen R Portage Park resident since 1983

    I was very pleased with my tree from Meinke's. I've also had some luck at Menard's and Home Depot, but that's hit or miss. Why not make a day of it and go out to cut your own?

    Chicago Public Schools officials said Thursday three schools that already have been emptied out will be permanently closed at the end of the school year. Marshall Middle School, 3900 N. Lawndale, and two contract schools recently put under CPS jurisdiction - Career Academy, 8 W. Root, and Early College High School, 1310 S.

  • Merger?! Many Classrooms are already at capacity. Most have between 30-40 students. These kids cannot learn in this type of setting. It's just not fair, and this is just setting them up
    for failure. And how can the teachers even keep up. Frustrating

  • Val

    Don't sheer demographics play a role in school mergers? The baby boom generation required lots of schools. Cohorts since have been smaller.

  • Val.

    According to some school districts. I just don't understand how the decision makers chose not to put Childrens education/futures a priority

  • Bart, you are right Red Hot Ranch on Western does NOT have burgers. Small Burger on 18th west of Damen is pretty awesome

  • For a cheap and fast Burger I go to the Grill on Halsted and Belmont. Nothing fancy but it's good.
