    Man Pistol-Whipped During Armed Robbery In Wrigleyville
    CHICAGO (STMW) - A man was pistol-whipped during an armed robbery late Monday in the Wrigleyville neighborhood on the North Side. About 10 p.m., the 19-year-old approached two men in the 1000 block of West Newport and asked for directions, according to Chicago Police.

  • Mike, what is your solution to the awful amount of crime in Chicago? Please elaborate.

  • The Mayor, thanks for asking. This is off the top of my head, but here's where I would start:

    The Mayor, thanks for asking. This is off the top of my head, but here's where I would start:

    1. Improve our schools, so people can get a good job when they graduate from high school. This requires reducing the power of teachers' unions, and paying teachers based on their on-the-job skills, not a flat rate based on seniority and degree, and being able to fire bad teachers easily. (Tuition-free college, maybe.)

    2. Eliminate most guns nationally, sharply control the rest (insurance, inspections, licensing, mandatory training, etc.). State and local gun laws are useless without a customs border to control the flow.

    3. Turn prisons into rehabilitation centers, not people warehouses where criminals build their network.

    4. Legalize most drugs, and stop locking people up for non-violent crimes.

Addison & Clark Demolition Date Set For June 15 Across From Wrigley Field

Alos displaced was a Starbucks on Addison, which closed in December and reopened nearby at 3551 N. Sheffield Ave., a large storefront that formerly housed Harry Caray's Tavern, Hi-Tops and Benchwarmers.

This article has 3 other Chicago locations (Show)

Neighbors have even mourned the loss of the 7-Eleven at Addison and Sheffield, which closed at the end of March. The convenience store was just that — an incredibly convenient place to grab basic groceries, several said.

Construction on Addison & Clark is expected to take two years, aligning it with the continuing Wrigley Field renovations and work on a hotel where McDonald's once stood. While the hotel is tied to the Cubs owners, Addison & Clark is the brain child of M&R Development and Bucksbaum Retail Properties.

At its peak, Addison & Clark will stand 93 feet tall. Three floors of retail will be topped by two parking garage levels and four floors of apartments. Renderings of the project show 14 retail spaces from Addison and Sheffield to 3545 N. Clark St.

    Addison & Clark Demolition Date Set For June 15 Across From Wrigley Field
    WRIGLEYVILLE - It's bulldozing time. It took nine years, two names and a foreclosure lawsuit for a mixed-use development across from Wrigley Field to take hold. But developers plan to finally kick-off demolition around June 15, giving notice to neighbors who are part of the Triangle Neighbors group on Wednesday.
