Glenwood Sunday Market - This Weekend!

Glenwood Sunday Market - This Weekend! The last Winter Market of the season gave us a taste of what is to come this summer! Freshly picked asparagus from Hardin Family Farms in Michigan, watercress from Oriana's Orchard, eggs from the best fed chickens in Illinois from Midnight Sun (Nick says he is going to start feeding the chickens flax seed), and amazing mushrooms from River Valley. And that is just a sampling of what was available. For vegatable gardeners, there were beautiful starter heirloom tomato and herb plants, fertile compost and more. And let's not forget about the TREATs from Katherine Anne Confections and amazing baked goods from Bennisons Bakery among others.

Rogers Park Business and Artist Network Ten Year Anniversary Wed, May 11th

Rogers Park Business and Artist Network Ten Year Anniversary Wed, May 11th Think back to May, 2001. The nation had a new President who many feel stole the election. The federal government was enjoying a surplus. A facebook was something we might show to our children while putting them to bed. The price of gas was (inflation adjusted) $1.61. Osama Bin Laden? Few people knew who he was, but he was alive. Ten years later - how much has changed! One morning back in May, 2001 a group of local business people and artists* thought that Rogers Park needed a networking organization uniquely suited to this neighborhood. They spoke with Heartland Cafe owner Michael James who agreed to host the meeting and serve breakfast. Around 15 - 20 locals showed up with the goal being to get to know each other, what each other does professionally, and to learn about other community endeavors others were involved in. People exchanged business cards. New friendships and business relationships were established. Read Mike's full article here>>>

Power-plant emissions bill dead, but not for long

Power-plant emissions bill dead, but not for long A proposal for Chicago to regulate exhaust from coal-fired power plants may be dying. But the bill’s sponsor, Ald. Joe Moore, 49th Ward, says it will come back to life soon. Moore’s legislation is stuck in a joint City Council committee chaired by Ald. Virginia Rugai, 19th, and James Balcer, 11th — close allies of Mayor Richard M. Daley, who oppose the bill. But Moore says he will introduce a similar version after Mayor-elect Rahm Emanuel takes office next month and a new City Council convenes. Get the whole story>>

Rescuer: ‘You could hear the dogs crying and the ice cracking’ Chicago Breaking News: Shannon Nickerson worried as she watched two dogs playing on the ice along the Howard Beach shoreline.

In case you haven’t heard, Chicago was hit hard with snow this week

In case you haven’t heard, Chicago was hit hard with snow this week By Bob Spoerl #Snomg. #Snowpocalypse. #SnowtoriousBIG. These are some of the most popular Twitter hash tags people used in reference to the massive blizzard of 2011. Twitter users posted, in 140 characters or less, updates about their interaction with the storm. Some tweets were funny, some were depressing, others quirky. In the studios of WTTW 11, on the nightly news show “Chicago Tonight,” where I work during the day as an intern, we dubbed the coming storm “Snowmageddon 2011” in our Tuesday broadcast. Due to the weather, we did not have a Wednesday show.
