- As the CTA moves along with its Doomsday Scenario, Mayor Daley raised the possibility of dedicated bus lanes on Lake Shore Drive.

- Dick Devine's current term as Cook County State's Attorney will be his last.

- The city is placing the search for a new Police Superintendent in the hands of a highly respected D.C. think-tank.

- Good news and bad news on the historic preservation front.

- Four men are charged with robbing Miami Heat forward Antoine Walker last month.

- A federal bankruptcy judge extended an order of protection to Hollinger Inc., protecting its interest in Sun-Times Media Group from creditors.

- A land developer is claiming city attorneys are playing hardball with him regarding a Bridgeport land deal.

- The parents of two students who were refused requests for a bathroom break have filed a lawsuit against the Chicago Public School system and the teacher who refused the request.

- After suffering injuries from being placed in a headlock and having his camcorder taken away from him by some meathead sound tech named "Jimbo," 49-year-old Jim Volpe got to meet his hero: Ted Nugent.

- Stay classy, CBS 2: the Tiffany network-owned station posted a 31 percent decrease in viewership for its 10 p.m. newscast since last year. How bad is that? Fox 32's "The Ten" beats CBS 2 in the 18-49 viewer demographic. They didn't help themselves with the double whammy of demoting their most likable anchor from the newscast and its salacious editing and airing of the Amy Jacobson tape.
