Frigid Weather Causing Extra Headaches For Firefighters

Before dawn Thursday, a building at 119th and Peoria caught fire. Numerous firefighters found their gear glazed in a thin coating of ice as they worked in temperatures near zero.

    Frigid Weather Causing Extra Headaches For Firefighters
    CHICAGO (CBS) - The recent arctic blast has made the already demanding job of fighting fires even more dangerous, and the last few days have been especially bad, as temperatures lingered in the single digits from Monday night until Thursday morning. An inferno greeted firefighters at a house near Mason and Madison late Wednesday night.

Can We Agree For A West Pullman "Security & Shade" Community?!

Spiritually the west is associated with security & shade!
There are major security & SHADY issues dominating our neighborhoods;along with gloom,as if a vail of doubtful honesty!
That can be CHANGED,by The Right Spirit,to a distinguishing retreat & shield
of protection(=Psalm 91!)!
Being armed with the LIGHT of this awarness in such knowledge can fuel the change!
If only a few with the same spirit-mind of FAITH & vision will build such a hedge TOGETHER,
Security & Shade will make our WEST better!
Contact me for our connecting consistantly!

Red light cameras tag thousands for undeserved tickets

Oumou Wague had driven her Chrysler minivan through the intersection at Halsted and 119th streets thousands of times since the city first installed a red light camera in 2004, and never once received a ticket there.

This article has 6 other Chicago locations (Show)

The camera at Lincoln Avenue and McCormick Road prompted 563 tickets during a 12-day period beginning Dec. 30, 2011 — more than all the tickets issued from that camera in the previous two years. The rate of tickets shot from less than one a day to 47 a day.

The camera at Western and Peterson avenues prompted 410 tickets during a 21-day stretch beginning Sept. 20, 2012, an average of 19.5 tickets per day, up from the typical 2.2 per day the previous two years.

On the Near West Side, the corner of North Ashland Avenue and West Madison Street generated 949 tickets in a 17-day period beginning June 23, 2013. That is a rate of about 56 tickets per day. In the previous two years, that camera on Ashland averaged 1.3 tickets per day.

All four spikes were accompanied by a period when the cameras went dark — two days before the surge at Halsted; immediately after the surge at Ashland; and both before and after the surges at Lincoln and Peterson.

But the yellow light interval during one of the most severe spikes fluctuated wildly, according to information extracted from a review of every ticket generated by the camera at 6200 N. Lincoln Ave. for more than a year.

    Red light cameras tag thousands for undeserved tickets
    Thousands of Chicago drivers have been tagged with $100 red light fines they did not deserve, targeted by robotic cameras during a series of sudden spikes in tickets that city officials say they cannot explain, a Tribune investigation has found.
