Extra, Extra

It wasn't your imagination. There really were extra problems on Lake Shore Drive this morning, with 20 vehicles damaged and 3 people injured. Stupid potholes.

Now it's even more convenient for the City to take your money! New robot kiosks now accept payments for your parking tickets, water bills and red-light tickets.

An update to this morning's story about the 4-year-old who was shot and killed: her brother has been charged, as a juvenile, with involuntary manslaughter.

Congratulations, new local landmarks. We will write more about you tomorrow.

Who doesn't want to see large-scale paintings of a nude Bobby Orr? No, he didn't pose. It's the artist's imagination. And now ours, too.

Two men were arrested for a string of violent crimes around UIC. Lawrence Baggett, 26, has been charged with one count of aggravated criminal sexual assault with a firearm and one count of armed robbery with a firearm; Damien Scott, 25, has been charged with two counts of armed robbery with a firearm, two counts of kidnapping while armed with a firearm and possession of a firearm with a defaced serial number. Police are still looking for two additional accomplices.
