    As a student living on Chicago’s south side in the early 1990s, I understood that the beginning of spring brought not only warmer days, but the sound of gunfire at night.

  • Don’t make a big stink — think pink

    During the first couple months of this year’s legislative session, I supported a bill on which the opponents didn’t feel at all constrained by either the truth or any kind of ethical behavior.

  • A hot issue, a cooler long-term fix

    Six years ago two members of the Evergreen Fire Protection District board were recalled in an election that divided the community and left bad feelings all around. Their opponents charged that they were unresponsive to the community.
    Today, four members of the EFPD board face a recall election April 23, engineered by opponents of the district’s intention to construct a training building at Station 2 in Bergen Park. The board members’ detractors charge that they have been unresponsive to the community.
