The Extension and Removal of Ogden Avenue | Forgotten Chicago
is an arterial highway in Chicago, running southwest from the near west side. The street was closed to traffic between North Avenue to Armitage Avenue in 1967. Another block was closed in 1983, south from North Avenue to Blackhawk Street. Finally by 1993, the viaduct carrying it over Goose Island was demolished, effectively cutting the route back to Chicago Avenue. The street did not need to be closed, but was done so as a result of poor planning and deferred maintenance. The map at left from 1938 shows the Ogden extension north of Chicago Avenue at its greatest length. The 2008 map at right indicates the location of the former ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Public school employees statewide were offered an opportunity to increase their retirement dollars by retiring early. The incentive was provided to state employees, as well. Kite said his greatest achievement was a bond issue voters passed in 1996 that brought $46 million into the district. He called it a grass-roots campaign to make the community aware of the need to pass the bond. “We ran it just like an election, and if people didn’t vote by a certain time, we called them,” ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

In the 1888 poem "Casey at the Bat," the famed slugger made the final out, whiffing as he swung for the fences with two men on and his team trailing by two runs. • Renaissance in Dayton could be a model for Gary Cleaning up the city: What is being done and why it isn't succeeding.

A Lakeview bar shows how to fight the recession
Schuba's in Lakeview advertises its nightly concerts, featuring artists ranging from local bands to indie-rock favorites.  Schuba's Tavern opened in 1989 in a Schlitz Brewing Co. building from the early 20th century.  Its restaurant, Harmony Grill, opened in 1997. Bars across the country are doing more to lure in drinkers on a budget: live music, comfort food, drink specials and online ads, but Schuba’s Tavern, a 20-year-old bar in Lakeview, tapped into these offerings long ago and continues to reap the rewards despite the tight economy. Schuba’s is more than a bar. Its back room is a wooden-floored concert hall, where ...
