Bronzeville Residents Slam CHA For Giving Public Housing Land To Mariano’s

  • Happy making better choices

    Renters have authority just not as much. That is a benefit of owning. There is nothing out of order or unreasonable about that. That is one of many reasons ppl seek ownership. The strongest authority is when renters and owners come together to unite towards common goals. A grocery store built on an empty lot with plenty of space remaining shouldn't be an issue but high 5 towards addressing the need for more fresh food options.

  • In regards to JRW,
    I was as proud of those kids as anyone and I still am. However, if rules were violated by parents and coaches to stack their team with players from outside the district, there should be consequences! I don't see it as a racial issue. If the kids from Vegas would have won and were guilty of similar, they would have been sanctioned in a similar fashion I hope?! It is a shame but the managers and parents associated with JRW should have known better!
