The milestone has received a great deal of media coverage, a documentary on PBS - hosted by Michael Keaton, who actually worked on the show, a theatrical documentary that came out in June and Tom...

About 11:20 a.m. Tuesday, officers showed up at his electronic monitoring site — an apartment in the 2300 block of South Michigan Avenue — to relocate him because the leaseholder no longer wanted him there, the release said.

Bronzeville Dog Park Article in South Side Weekly

If you haven't seen it, the South Side Weekly did a nice write-up about efforts in Bronzeville to bring more dog parks to the South Side.

http://southsideweekly.com/barcing-up-the-right-tree/

    BARCing up the Right Tree
    Dogs on the South Side shouldn't need to drive all over the city to get out more and exercise." When Benjamin Gerhold tells me this in an email, it makes for a funny image-a poodle in a coupe, perhaps-but it strikes upon an issue that has long gone unaddressed.

On a related note; if anyone has any old toys their pup has lost interest in, consider giving them a second life by donating them to one of the dog parks... also any grocery bags for the bag dispensers would also be greatly appreciated.

Chicago's Gun Control Laws - Not Enforced

Lots of Chicago and National Lib Dems have been virtue signaling over the issue of gun control after yet another terrible schools shooting, mass killing. Former Chicago Public School director and Secretary of Education Arnie Duncan (never went to a public school, taught in a public school, sends his children to expensive private school) has called for a national mass walkout of students until strict gun control laws are passed.

Lots of Chicago and National Lib Dems have been virtue signaling over the issue of gun control after yet another terrible schools shooting, mass killing. Former Chicago Public School director and Secretary of Education Arnie Duncan (never went to a public school, taught in a public school, sends his children to expensive private school) has called for a national mass walkout of students until strict gun control laws are passed.

But the reality here in our Chicago is that existing gun control laws are often just not enforced.

Take the case of Daryl Williams who was caught with a stolen hand gun that he bought on the street (he admitted that) he was firing off the gun in our street, caught by the cops. But Chicago judge Stephanie Miller - champion of our county's "affordable bail" movement let Williams go free on recognizance bond (not even electric monitoring) and sure enough Williams proceeds to get another illegal hand gun and..... murder someone! This terrible, representable Chicago murder case was not covered by the mainstream media but was covered by the excellent Boys down crime blog CWBChicago

    Prosecutors: Gun Offender Was Free On Recognizance Bond When He Got Another Gun And Killed A Man
    When Daryl Williams stepped in front of Cook County Judge Stephanie Miller on Wednesday, it wasn't the first time the two had seen each other. Back in November, Miller-a champion of the county's "affordable bail" movement-let Williams go free on a recognizance bond after he was charged with possessing a stolen handgun on the South Side.

    With all the complaints about how lenient on criminals...Remember Preckwinkle got to run again on your vote...and you know darn will Foxx will stay..

    She and Kim Foxx think too many black and brown "thug criminals" are in jail. I guess it makes them both feel like they being picked on. BOO HOO! It's the Lawbiding citizens who are being picked on and off. In the era (60-70's) I grew up in, these punks were given 2 choices...JAIL or the ARMY ! Color was not an option.. Judges then, didn't pussyfoot around. But then too, Chicago wasn't out of control either. Old man Daley didn't put up with it PERIOD!..CPD knows there are gang issues... I remember when CPD sat down with these leaders and hashed it out. Seems every punk walking our streets has a gun..

    Preckwinkle and Foxx need to wake up.... And wake up fast. CPD seems to be doing their job at catching these thugs as Preckwinkle and Foxx play their games with releasing them back onto our streets only to commit more crimes...While they both say they are tough on crime.. which is laughable....

  • Why do liberal, left, progressive types, who tout "gun safety", bemoan the cost of incarceration? For the sake of public safety, those are tax dollars well spent. Besides the emotional cost endured, what is the physical cost of funeral related expenses? I'm thinking that the personal loss of a loved one from a repeat offender would change the mindset of those who whine about the cost of putting a criminal behind bars.

Baderbrau Brewing for sale, no longer making beer, as craft beer industry tightens

The Baderbrau taproom and kitchen, which are attached to the brewery at 2515 S. Wabash Ave., remain open and cans of Baderbrau beer are still in the market. As those cans are sold, they are unlikely to reappear.

    Baderbrau Brewing for sale, no longer making beer, as craft beer industry tightens
    Baderbrau Brewing, which resurrected a long-dormant Chicago craft beer brand three years ago amid a wave of brewery openings, has stopped making beer and has put its South Loop operation up for sale, according to multiple sources. However, the brand and its pub may endure depending on the outcome of various discussions, sources said.

The neon-lit bar at Lawrence and Broadway, now a legendary jazz club, has been around for 107 years—and has more stories than any tavern in town. Here are a few from the past three decades.

    The weekend's best blues beyond the fest
    This year Chicago seems to be hosting fewer extracurricular blues events during Blues Festival week than it has in the past. It's too soon to decide that audiences have gotten complacent, though-and you can still find plenty of worthwhile shows. The city's blues clubs kick into overdrive during the fest, of course (see the Reader's listings for more on them).
