Q & A: Charles Ford Myra Ford

by City Pulse
I think for the most part it’s because the plan that was presented to us we all felt was very concise and very comprehensive. As our current interim superintendent indicated, it wasn’t cherry picking; it wasn’t we’re going to do this over here and this over here and do it in different years. It is a comprehensive plan, and it’s a plan that deals with academic success as opposed to just closing buildings. It’s geared towards the research that shows certain configurations of schools are more successful and are where we need to focus our time and our money.

Smoking debate

by City Pulse
In the United States there are 19 states that have casinos included in their statewide smoke-free laws. That only applies to those state-owned and operated: tribal casinos obviously are sovereign. In the state of Illinois, which has a state-wide smoke-free law that includes casinos, one of their top-grossing casinos is state-owned. I think what folks may be forgetting is that nearly 80 percent of the U.S. population does not smoke. So when you go smoke-free, you’re opening your casino doors to more potential patrons.

Where there's smoke

by City Pulse
What are the objections of the people in the 4th Ward? We heard a lot about both the pros and cons from everybody. But the kinds of things that ultimately led me to the vote I made were people in the 4th Ward saying, “Of course we want jobs, of course we want to see more children have college paid for — but this isn’t the way we want to do it.”

Top of the Town Awards: Staff Picks

by City Pulse
I went there last week and it was gone. I wish I'euro;'d patronized that stump more often. Top of the Town is more than a contest. Our goal is to whip up appreciation for the finer things in our world, the same way a carnival man whips up cotton candy, and this year we piled up a lot of it.

St. Patrick’s Day Events

by City Pulse
What’s better than a day dedicated to drinking? Not having to take a day off work to enjoy a day dedicated to drinking. This year, St. Patrick’s Day falls on a Saturday; the next time it happens—2018—we’ll probably be able to teleport to a bar on the moon for last call. Which will be great for all those future college seniors who are only just starting high school this year, but as for 2012 we´ll have to keep our feet on the ground and stick to local establishments. So this year, take solace in the knowledge that if you want to spend an entire day drinking (and spilling) green beer, you don’t have to lie to your boss this year to get away with it.
