    The controversy just about 10 years ago was that there were some variances as far as how many people each ward has. And also they didn’t take the deadline that seriously back then either. Some vague rules perhaps or just a lax adherence to said rules or deadlies?


  2. - Cheryl44 - Friday, Dec 3, 21 @ 8:54 am:

    I know what kind of boundaries I’d like to set…

    It’s quite a beautiful day here in DuPage County. Sunny and 45 degrees. Couldn’t ask for more.

    “unnecessarily drives hysteria”

    Manufactured drama is the grist of our 24/7 media mill.
    Without it, there wouldn’t be near enough content.

    Weird Al is coming to the SANGAMON AUDITORIUM on MAY 22

    Hoping for a solid old timers committee vote for Minnie Minoso and Billy Pierce. Go Sox

    The reign of the white alderman is going on in earnest.
    Good for the constituents to want representative government.

    Not sure what this statement is supposed to mean. I believe the big disputes are between the latino caucus and the african american caucus.

    Al, we do tax Jet Fuel. 21.9 a gallon and regular aviation fuel at 19.4 a gallon. That is where the federal money comes from this in part, local entities also tax aviation fuel. At every airport with fuel storage besides O’Hare and Midway, those facilities also pay into the state fuel storage fund (that helps pay for environmental reclamation on sites that have had leaking tanks).

    The landing fees and the local fuel taxes help cover the “local” portion of these projects and a local contribution is required for these projects.

    Hannibal: exactly…


  11. - Tinydancer(FKASue) - Friday, Dec 3, 21 @ 9:53 am:

    Found a detailed link to the People’s map, but it’s too cumbersome to use.
    Cannot find detailed links to either the Latino Caucus or Black Caucus city ward maps….but then, I guess, that’s the whole point. The voters are on a need-to-know basis - and evidently they feel we don’t need to know.

    Is the Sun Times High School football player of the year Jack Lausch of Brother Rice the son of the USAttny who played football at Harvard? kid going to the Dome.


  13. - NonAFSCMEStateEmployeeFromChatham - Friday, Dec 3, 21 @ 10:05 am:

    I wonder how Secretary White recently being awarded a Customer Convenience Award for drivers’ services will affect Alexi’s talking points about the “need for better customer service and technology” at SOS:

    Happy Birthday Illinois.

    =the big disputes are between the latino caucus and the african american caucus.=

    The establishment white alderman have the other caucuses fighting each other.

    ==Cannot find detailed links to either the Latino Caucus or Black Caucus city ward maps==

    See Calabrese twitter for digital LC Map. BC map = rules map; see Kapos twitter for screenshot.


  17. - Amalia - Friday, Dec 3, 21 @ 11:17 am:

    re the reign of the white aldermen, even the so called independent map preserves the one Republican in the Council—guy always on Fox News– because they keep the NW corner of the city with his most likely voters.


  18. - Amalia - Friday, Dec 3, 21 @ 11:30 am:

    whoa, Michigan prosecutor just charged the parents in the recent school shooting case. this should make other prosecutors take a close look at the availability of guns and responsibility.


  19. - H-W - Friday, Dec 3, 21 @ 11:41 am:

    Northern, Southern, Eastern, and Western Illinois Universities “Compass Challenge” at Western Illinois University this weekend. Women’s Basketball at its finest in the State of Illinois.


  20. - West Side the Best Side - Friday, Dec 3, 21 @ 11:53 am:

    It often seems that deadlines, arbitrary or otherwise, are the only things that gets pols to do their jobs.


  21. - ZC - Friday, Dec 3, 21 @ 12:58 pm:

    Go Blue Demons. Beat the Ramblers.
