WGN: Chicagoans start to dig out following massive snowfall


[VIDEO] As we defrost from the heavy snow that fell over a week ago, I wanted to share this video with you all. And to share an idea with any community leaders or business people that perhaps could be expanded to our part of the city at least.

The gist of this story is Jahmal Cole - and if you don't know he's filed to run against Bobby Rush for Congress - organized volunteers to help shovel out this property in Englewood which contains a "free market" implemented by the Resident Association of Greater Englewood or R.A.G.E. The property was formerly a Church's Chicken at one point is a place people to get food, toiletries, etc whatever anyone is willing to donate that is necessary in these difficult unprecedented times.

It's great to see people from all over the city come around and volunteer to help other parts of the city dig out from heavy snow.

My how the streetscape of 95th & State Street has changed #tbt

[VIDEO] It wasn't that long ago that this was the scene from the 95th Red Line Terminal. And the reconstruction is largely done now in 2021. It seems that we're getting ready to see in a new phase in the redevelopment.

Earlier this year the gas station, Ed's Livery building, a currency exchange building, another gas station, and them a Cosmo store have all been demolished. Even the old Jim's Polish stand closed since 2014 were all demolished last month.

So the scene you see here was from back in 2016 and who's have thought all the structures you saw back then would be nothing more than a memory?

CTA Red Line extension meeting regarding the station at 130th street

 I'm sorry I haven't be able to adequately advertise these virtual townhalls regarding the CTA Red Line extension.

There will be two other meetings on the 103rd Street and Michigan Avenue stops later this month.
