Follow The Groundhog’s Example: Stay Indoors

Every year, in February, we wait to see if Punxsutawney Phil, the world’s most famous groundhog, will predict six more weeks of winter. Huge crowds have waited for Phil’s prediction each year since 1886. For Phil, seeing his shadow predicts six more weeks of winter-like weather. More often than not, he sees his shadow and goes back inside.

Homeless Center on Southside of Chicago

Hello everyone. My name is DeLancy. I would like to know everyone thoughts on having a Homeless Center on Southside of Chicago? I would like the community input on this issue.

  • Jeff Janulis CAPS Rep

    Because it is better to invest the limited resources available in our youth, instead of people that have frittered their lives away. I agree with Ms. Yolanda.

    And what a prick to pick on a typo mr. grammar-check....

  • No, I was (and am) being quite sincere in erring on the side of caution to make sure that I was understanding Yolando O's post. Hence my heartfelt apology in advance, if I got it wrong.

    Sometimes you're sure you're right about something and it turns out not to be the case. I was fairly certain it was just a typo (and we all make 'em!!) but just in case I was wrong (which has happened on occasion), I wanted to avoid offending her.
    I hope that she realizes that, if not in my last post, then by what I have added here.
