The forecast for Lathrop

11/21/2012

When storms like Sandy and the Nor’easter come through, they destroy homes and communities, scattering many residents and leaving others behind to fight to be heard and hope to rebuild.

Don’t close Kenmore

10/17/2012

If they go forward in face of continued community opposition, Alderman Waguespack should have an easy decision to not support the closing of Kenmore between Fullerton and Belden. Read more...

Pay attention to South Loop schools

Letter to the editor

07/11/2012

It happens about once or twice a week: someone in my South Loop neighborhood is helping a stranger with directions to the Soldier Field bridge, parking tips for Grant Park activities or delicious eats south of Roosevelt. We do this without question. We love the South Loop. What may appear as large concrete slabs to the passersby, we know there are crevices of communities and parks that would make anyone’s mouth water.

This Fourth, remember your freedoms

Letter to the editor

07/03/2012

The Fourth of July reminds me of the significance of the “Four Freedoms” that President Franklin D. Roosevelt proposed in his January 6, 1941, State of the Union address and to which he suggested that everyone is entitled.

Letter to the editor

05/30/2012

More than 7,500 proud members of the Chicago Teachers Union held a rally at the historic Auditorium Theater and marched downtown on Wednesday, May 23.

Lincoln Park counts

Letter to the editor

01/04/2012

Lincoln Park is a valuable part of our city and residents here pay significant property taxes to support the City of Chicago.

New Ward boundaries could tear apart the fabric of well-established neighborhoods, all a result of old-style political jockeying.

Lincoln Park remap looks like chewed-up gum

Letter to the editor

01/04/2012

I am concerned that the two proposed remaps will divide the Lincoln Park community into three or five wards for the first time in history and do not respect our community's long time heritage.

Don't carve up Lincoln Park

Letter to the editor

01/04/2012

I am completely opposed to the proposed remap of the 43rd Ward. It is a cynical attempt to scramble the cohesion of a community that has chosen to elect an independent alderman and would break us up into four separate wards, making community planning a chaos.
