    Why Mr. Rogers Got It and Fox News Never Will!
    By now I'm sure you're aware that 2018 is the 50th anniversary of "Mister Rogers Neighborhood," broadcast nationally by PBS.

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!

WXRT - a bit of history you might never hear

SIDETRIP THEATRE (circa late 1972 (prep)/early 73-broadcast) - the very first rock program on WXRT - which was then a foreign language station the rest of the broadcast day. SIDETRIP was hosted by Don Bridges and ran from 12M to 3AM - I know - I was the board op. Others followed like John Platt, Mitch Michaels Salchow, Seth Mason etc....but somehow Don's contribution to change the WXRT landscape from foreign language to underground rock - always gets left untold. Arnie Granat and Jerry Michelson of JAM PRODUCTIONS were also instrumental because initially they were the very first sponsors.

  • I think I heard Brian Auger’s Oblivion Express on this show. Unfortunately the “Mavericks” of back then have morphed into only a couple of hours on Monday night worth of listening on Xrt.
    Thanks for the post.
    Cheers

While it’s pretty safe to assume that Related is planning something tall for the prominent 2.2-acre site at 400 N. Lake Shore Drive, details such as the number of towers, building height, and programming are still a mystery.

    New plan for stalled Chicago Spire to debut next week
    After years of rumors and speculation, the official redevelopment plan for the failed Chicago Spire site will finally get its long-awaited public debut. Developer Related Midwest will present its proposal on Tuesday, May 15 at 6:00 p.m. in the ballroom of Streeterville's Sheraton Grand hotel, according to an email notice sent from the office of 42nd Ward Alderman Brendan Reilly on Friday.

I was pleased to hear that my blog, "Go Do Good," has for the third time in the last 12 months been recognized as one of the top 20 (in a specific month) by the Chicago Tribune. Let me share you with you another blog (one of the 20 recognized also for outstanding composition) that might be of help to someone you know in PAIN seeking an alternative method other than using opioids like NARCO. The blog is by Chicagoan Judy Marcus. Having helped a senior relative secure a medical marijuana card, I'm familiar with the process but Judy's blog spells it all out plus provides an opportunity to learn more. Please share with those who might want to consider an alternate to opiod Rx. http://www.chicagonow.com/opinionated-woman/2018/04/everything-you-need-to-know-to-buy-medical-marijuana-legally-in-illinois/

    Everything you need to know to buy medical marijuana legally in Illinois
    I've experienced debilitating back pain off and on for over a decade. When the pain gets bad enough, I alternate between taking Aleve and Norco, an opioid which was prescribed for me by an orthopedic surgeon. Norco makes me feel like I'm floating on a lovely white cloud.
