    75 CPS schools now have tested positive for lead
    Chicago Public Schools has 75 elementary schools with amounts of lead in their drinking water that have tested above federally acceptable standards. That's about 18 percent so far of the 422 grade schools run by the city's school system. CPS released the updated numbers after 8 p.m.

  • The lead in water is minimal; the real threat is lead paint. Even at CPS only about 3% of the fixtures tested had lead issues.

  • Mike Conover '90's HP block orginizing,CAPS- resident since '07

    The lead gets into Chicago water after it leaves the city supplies. there is some lead pieing within building, and most of the water supplies from main to building (which are for the most part not the water department's responsibility, but the building owners) build before the 70's are lead. Chicago takes significant efforts to mitigate those privately owned lead pipes. In this instance (where some drinking fountains test high and others do not) there is likely some old lead internal piping. Another problem for an already over-beleaguered CPS.

    It goes without saying that between the world-renowned art and highly-anticipated programming in Millennium Park, the majestic Bloomingdale Trail and Lincoln Park's array of city institutions and lush natural features, Chicago's collective lawn groweth over with outstanding public green spaces. But beyond the tourist-laden headliners, the city's neighborhoods are dotted with prime, if underrated, parkland as well.

    Save The CTA's #11 Lincoln Bus By Drinking A Lot Of Beer
    Photo via shutterstock. One of the most depressing CTA cuts for North Side residents over the past few years was the demise of the #11 bus which ran down Lincoln Avenue. Since its disappearance, community groups, aldermen and business owners have been calling for its return, and the CTA finally listened.

  • People are going to have to do a lot of daytime drinking during the week. The bus doesn't run on weekends or after 7pm!

    A play about Frederick Douglass and William Lloyd Garrison dulls two great Americans
    In the era of Trump and Cruz and the rest of them it's difficult to call anybody a great American with a straight face. That's what Frederick Douglass was, though. And so was William Lloyd Garrison.
