U.S. STEEL LAND DEVELOPEMENT...

...deal off. Irish developers, Emerald Living and Spanish developer, Barcelona Housing systems, has walked away from their proposed development of the lake front site. The group cited land contamination as the reason. This despite the fact that the land was remediated years ago and EPA had given the okay to build housing. Enuf said about that. The real reason this land hasn't been developed is because this site and the neighboring communities has been long treated as the city's step children. Why? I don't know. Some say crime around U.S. Steel is deterring development. It didn't deter development up and down the CHA corridor of State street and Cabrini Green or the on going gentrification of Humboldt and Wicker Park. The real reason, as I see it, is that City has never put its' real thrust and resource toward developing this land and community. So what's up? It's not the location, beautiful lakefront property. It's not the land, EPA deemed site ready to go. Not crime, the State street corridor, Cabrini Green, Wicker and Humboldt Park attest that areas with crime can be developed and crime can be mitigated if not totally eliminated. Could it be leadership? How about it Aldermen, can you supply some answers?

Against All Odds: A Fight for the Black Middle Class

Screening and Community Discussion

When it comes to daily headlines, the black middle class is nearly invisible. The news tends to focus on dysfunction in poor black neighborhoods, confrontations with police, disappointing achievements in urban schools. There's a lot missing from that narrative. To find out more, we talk with journalist Bob Herbert, who wrote and produced the documentary “Against All Odds: The Fight for a Black Middle Class.” He brings decades of reporting and analysis together to explain what African-American families have confronted in pursuing the American Dream.

Choppers in South Shore

Helicopters are in South Shore inspecting power lines!

  • Shepisces Caring Resident

    Omgooodnesss.. That's such a terrible thing... So sad.

  • Shay New & Enthusiastic South Shore Resident!

    My husband and I hear helicopters every night. I think sometimes they're checking out traffic conditions on the Skyway (we live maybe half a mile from the off ramp), but then we also hear them every night when it's dark and not rush hour anymore. I've been so curious...they can't be looking for criminals every single night. Anybody know?

Loose Squares

Officer, no harm, no foul. “Not here my man, got to keep the corner clear.” I got two kids and a felony. Trying to provide. "Hey, love you, got a job to do. Be off this corner when I get back.” Can’t breathe.

U.S. Steel: Here We Go Again

Plans to develop the U.S. Steel site is on hold. The European conglomerate, Barcelona Housing System, put a skid on the project by voicing some concerns about soil contamination. This sound disingenuous considering that the EPA ( Environmental Protection Agency ) oversaw a massive remediation of the site when the McCaffery Group was suppose to develop the land. EPA deemed the site ready to go. Whether or not Barcelona is trying to use this as a ploy to reduce the cost of the land or to back out the deal all together is anyone's guess. The closing is postpone into sometime in May of 2018. Stay tuned...dats, dats, dats all folks.
