Yes, meet Yes! A year after Rock Hall of Fame induction, two bands embark on Yes 50th anniversary tours

“It was a happy summer vacation to play with old friends for three months and then be paid enough to feed most of Bosnia,” Bruford said in a 1995 Union-Tribune interview.

Speaking of food, in a 2004 Union-Tribune interview, Wakeman recalled the 1973 “Topographic Oceans” tour of England. During a long, keyboard-free segment at one show, he ate an Indian dinner at his keyboards — mid-concert — while the rest of the band performed.

    Yes, meet Yes! A year after Rock Hall of Fame induction, two bands embark on Yes 50th anniversary tours
    Will the real Yes please stand up? Is it the Yes whose current concert trek is billed as "#YES50: Celebrating 50 Years of Yes?" That tour stops Sunday, June 24, at Pechanga Resort & Casino and includes two other Southern California dates by the pioneering English progressive-rock band.

  • Jane Addams High School reviewed by a student

    Before coming to Jane Addams, I was very skeptical. I thought that Jane Addams was like every other school. After coming here, I changed my mind because it s definitely not like any other school. Coming to Jane Addams was probably the best thing I could have ever done. Being at JAHS, I have learned so much about myself. I hated English until I came to JAHS and Mrs. Winter made me start loving it! She gave me a positive attitude towards learning difficult concepts. What I enjoy about Jane Addams High School is how the staff and teachers encourage me to be responsible because no one else will cover for me. We are taught to problem-solve using our critical thinking skills. We analyze problems objectively before acting on it and deciding which approach would be best. I like Jane Addams because the rules apply to everyone. No one gets special treatment. I will apply what I ve learned at JAHS to the outside world by limiting my expectations. By this I mean not to expect everything to be handed to me and that I would get no special treatment when I am going into the world. JAHS taught me I have to work hard for anything I want. This school has made my high school life an entirely new and pleasant experience. Since coming to Jane Addams, I have gained so much knowledge and understanding of how tough of a world we live in, how to deal with authorities and the importance of punctuality regarding everything. They have given me the skills to respect authority and handle a situation in a most well mannered and professional way. I appreciate how many impressions JAHS has made on me. It has taught me how to stay patient, committed, and motivated toward my goals, behaviors, and ambition. Jane Addams High School may be tough on me, but they are training me for the greater future that is ahead.

    What made me successful at JAHS are the teachers. They are always on you about your grades and always make sure you have all your work in. If you work is not turned in you start to fail that class. What I like about this school is that the teachers keep you on point. What I have learn from Jane Addams high school is that you always have to be on point with everything. When I say you have to be on point with everything, I mean that you have to be prepared for everything. When you are in JAHS building you have to look like a scholar and represent the school the right way. Giving up is not a choice at JAHS because there are no excuses. The teachers and other office staff alike encourage the students to attend school every day and be prepared for class.

  • Jane Addams High School reviewed by a parent

    High school hasn t been easy for me as I have been in and out of schools. When I decided to transfer to Jane Addams everything changed for me. At Jane Addams, every single teacher helped me which made me happy I transferred to Jane Addams. In my opinion, if I had stayed at my other school I wouldn t be graduating. While I ve been at Jane Addams, I ve learned quite a lot, especially a lot of new vocabulary. I have also learned a lot of math and social studies which are two of my favorite subjects. I have learned how to pull out context clues to find the definition of a vocabulary word. After I graduate high school, I know all of my new knowledge is going to apply out of school because I m going to head to college and I know there s going to be some familiar work that I have done in the past. I m extremely grateful for all the teachers that helped me get to where I am today.

    I ve been to four different high schools, throughout my high school career. I never saw myself graduating high school because I never liked school and I was always looked down upon by my relatives. Being surrounded by doubt made me doubt myself. I accepted what people said about me and so I agreed with it. My brother attended JAHS, and my aunt thought I should enroll as well. This is my second year at JAHS. JAHS is like a family. I have learned that sometimes you must concede instead of arguing. My teachers have given me the confidence to succeed, while at the same time making me feel like I am part of a family. What made me successful at JAHS was just simply following the little rules they enforce and changing my attitude. Throughout the years, I started to realize that JAHS isn t really as bad as I was making it. What I like about JAHS the most is the support and motivation from the staff.

    This school doesn t make you feel like a little kid getting held by the hand all the time. Jane Addams reminds me to be responsible and to get it together even if it s a tough day. This school reminds me to strive and continue to push myself. This school really made me feel like I was bound to be this grown person and that I should get my education so I can move onto a different responsibility. Everything I have been learning and taking from Jane Addams has been something I will always remember. I like the disciplinary standards they enforce here It gives me and my peers a taste of what the outside world will be like. At JAHS we are pushed to become professional and think about our future. I honestly feel that Jane Addams encourages me and pushes me to become a better me.

    Before I came to JAHS, my head was all over the place. I wasn't focused on school; I was more focused on fitting in. I spent a lot of time thinking about dressing the best, getting all the best shoes, etc. I went to Crane Medical Prep and I was at Morton East .They were decent but I feel like it was all about popularity. I knew I could have done way better academically. JAHS showed me that. At JAHS, I can reach out for help at any time by simply coming before or after school to meet with someone. At JAHS I learned a deadline is a deadline-- no matter what. More importantly, I learned that I must have a plan. Yes, I had a plan for college, but when I transferred here, I saw how serious and important it was. I really appreciate these skills because I think they are going to be very important when I get to college. I like everything about JAHS.

    Before Jane Addams I went to Ombudsman. To me, Ombudsman was the lamest school ever. Everyone was surprised to find out I was going to Ombudsman and I was embarrassed about it. Eventually I told my mom about Jane Addams and we enrolled there a week later. When I enrolled I had a meeting with Mr. Aki and Ms. Comparini. When they told me all the rules, I cried in the office. This school was making me choose between my needs and my wants. Something I was not used to, but I gave in. As it turned out, Jane Addams was like a breath of fresh air. I hadn t been in a regular high school setting in a whole year! I was so excited to finally feel like I belonged somewhere. Since being at JAHS, I ve learned that it is okay to ask for help. JAHS has helps me succeed in ways that my old schools couldn't even dream of doing. I am confident that with the education that JAHS has given me, I will succeed in anything I put my mind to.

    A friend recommended Jane Addams and had nothing but good things to say about school. I came to enroll and I haven t been happier. Jane Addams is the high school I dreamed of, a chill type day but you re learning and getting so much done.

    Jane Addams has made a really a huge difference to my education. Jane Addams has helped me learn that I really enjoy writing, it just feels natural to me. When it comes down to it what I like about Jane Addams High School are the teachers, the effort, the appreciation, and the compassion that every student receives. I ve witnessed each of these personally with all the teachers and staff members that I ve encountered at Jane Addams. That feeling is great, knowing someone is going to give you their time and not devalue you for struggling, but will not let you fall through the cracks and be left behind. All my life, I have heard people talk about No Child Left Behind and similar things, JAHS is the place where I have felt like people believe it.

Back up, city's main sewer need to be clean up

There is backing up in my place for 4 weeks already. I had two plumbers proved that there is no water flooding in the city's main sewer, which means it is clogged. I have called the city and they confirmed that the city needs to rod the main sewer. But 4 weeks passed already, they haven't done anything, just keep telling me to wait. The situation is getting worse. can you imagine how do we live in a building that has very strong smell from the backing up under such hot weather? Any good advices?

  • Wow! What a horrible situation. I am sorry that you are going through this. Have you contacted your alderman’s office? I would go in person to the office with the pictures because you’ll be less likely to get the run around. Check also with neighbors to see if anyone else has had the problem. There is strength in numbers.

    Good luck!

    I had to leave my first high school because I was not safe there. I was threatened so severely that I needed to leave. Two people told me JAHS was the best choice for a new school so I took a day and came JAHS to check it out, and decided this was the best school for me. At JAHS there are fewer students in each class. I am able to ask for help when I need it and I actually receive it. JAHS is a peaceful school. Teachers take time to explain concepts and help their students which is a big help to me.

    At JAHS, I have learned to focus on my studies and to finish my work on time. I have become a critical thinker thanks to the lessons taught in our classes and the assessments that are given regularly. I have learned to be responsible for my actions and how to deal with the obstacles that may come my way in the future.
