Quinn Eyes Alderman Joe Moore for Cabinet Spot

Quinn Eyes Alderman Joe Moore for Cabinet Spot It seems like the new Chicago City Council was just sworn into office, but one of its members may be preparing to move on quite soon. City and state insiders are buzzing with talk that Alderman Joe Moore (49th), a reformer who represents the Rogers Park area, is on Gov. Pat Quinn's short list to head the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency.

A Neighborhood Success Story Beat 2431 CAPS

A Neighborhood Success Story Beat 2431 CAPS Loyola Park, a twenty acre gem in the Chicago Park District, is one of the 49th Ward’s many treasures. As with many treasures, there is often a dark side. Along with its excellent beach, large park area and recreational facilities, Loyola Park was becoming dangerous. It was plagued by group drinking, drug dealing, petty theft, prostitution and assaults. From May to November overnight camps, of people too drunk or unwilling to find their way back to their apartments, were set up behind bushes, under trees and out on the beach. A community park was becoming lost to the community. Read the rest here>>
