Aldi construction?

Does anyone know what the plan is for Aldi? And wouldn't it be nice if they re-opened as a Trader Joes? Aldi is the parent company.

Police on Irving Park

Does anyone know why about 12 police cars are speeding down Irving Park Rd-- past Damen? Most were unmarked.

    Oh good

    Haji - I'm guessing that Kevin S was making a reference to The Fugitive TV series and movie. Or maybe he was serious!

    CPS to test for lead in water at 28 elementary schools
    Chicago Public Schools announced Thursday the list of 28 elementary schools being tested for lead, a measure CEO Forrest Claypool insisted was being taken "out of an abundance of caution."

  • CJL ...

    "Wonder What really happened that raised a red flag to conduct testing for lead"

    Assuming this is a serious question:

    1. Flint.
    2. Chicago Tribune investigation that Chicago was using BS testing methodology in selecting locations for water quality testing.
    3. It's kids, who are most susceptible to bad effects of lead.

    I'd bet a dollar that *most* of the older south and west side schools will show elevated lead levels in the water. Probably not truly high, but elevated.

  • CJL

    This is a serious question

    I did not realize the entire importance of this testing lead

    Thanks for the info. Hopefully, there isn't any found
