James ‘Jim’ Roetheli was a State Street Santa for 35 Christmases

After decades living in Edgewater, he and his wife Lennora, married since 1984, moved several years ago to the Zelda Ormes apartments, 116 W. Elm, McCarty said, where Mr. Roetheli sometimes had hallway “sword fights” with other cane-wielding residents. His wife died last year.

“I think that’s a first,” said funeral director Tim Harrington of Barr Funeral Home, 6222 N. Broadway, where the service was held Monday.

    James 'Jim' Roetheli was a State Street Santa for 35 Christmases
    You could say Jim Roetheli's memorial service was the last "Ho, ho, ho!" At the center of the parlor rested his walker, decorated with a North Pole sign. The mourners - some wearing red and green - spontaneously burst into "Santa Claus is Coming to Town."

    click to enlarge The whopping success of Jordan Peele's has demonstrated that general audiences can appreciate horror movies for their subtext. 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.

    Man Bites Dog: Downtown Water Tank To Be Saved
    We've lamented before about how advances in modern plumbing and fire suppression technology are stripping so many of Chicago's buildings of their rooftop water tanks. Many of the remaining tanks we see adorning the roofs of the city's brick-and-timber buildings are a hundred years old or more. Repairs are expensive.

    I adore water tanks! They are historical and rare. Glad that this one was saved.
