Just about anything they do to #3 and #4 greens will be an improvement. #4 is much to sloped for the size of the green. While #3 is larger there aren't enough locations for good pin placements. There isn't a flat spot on the entire green. Also both greens are plenty large left to right but too small front to back. #3 fairway needs larger flat spot areas in the fairway also. I will look…

One can only hope the grand jury does the right thing based on the evidence they review. I fully believe that at some point Brown may have raised his hands...and then charged the officer. So if you marry all the accounts together including the injuries sustained you get a pretty clear picture of what happened that matches the witness accounts. They have quite a few now who say they saw the confrontation…

This is Trayvon Martin redux ... Obama needs to incite his base to riot, with an election approaching, and the world on fire. Crump and Sharpton show up to make false/racist allegations, and turn a local situation into a national media circus. They COULD demand justice for INNOCENT black kids that get shot, but those are killed by blacks, mostly gang members. 91% of blacks are killed by other…

Where are the pictures of these injuries? The video of Michael Brown in the store shoplifiting cigars was released. Why not pictures of the officers injuries? This situation could be put to rest if he was as badly injured as this article claims.

When the Fed "investigation" wraps up these injuries may be attributed to the officer slipping on a bar of soap.

Lagunitas beer founder opens second brewery in Chicago

1 month, 4 weeks ago suntimes.com

Rejects city incentives in return for fast and efficient process

From suntimes.com:

Tony Magee wanted the labels of his famed Lagunitas IPA to one day say “brewed and bottled in Chicago.”

So more than two years ago while driving to work, when he decided to open a second brewery, he knew he’d be coming home.

“From the very beginning we have been a Chicago brewery in northern California,” Magee, an Arlington Heights native, told the Chicago Sun-Times editorial board Thursday.

He found the perfect location — part of a West Side warehouse complex that once housed the Ryerson steel plant.

And then he met with city officials.

At City Hall, officials there started to talk about financial incentives that would be available.

“I was like, I don’t want any of it,” Magee said.

Instead, he asked for help making sure the process to open the brewery was fast and efficient.

“I need an expedited process because I have to add this capacity because the brewery in California is growing so fast,” Magee said he told the officials.

He said he didn’t want taxpayers’ dollars.

“You start realizing you make the world around you by the decisions you make as you move through it and if I don’t feel like the government should be looted [or] whored out for businesses ... we don’t need it ... so why ask for it?” Magee said. “I’d rather they have more midnight basketball and fill potholes. Don’t give it to me.”

Now just over two years later, the ribbon to the Chicago brewery has been cut.

Deputy Mayor Steve Koch said the city didn’t cut any corners, but didn’t want to be a barrier to a new 300,000-square-foot business that employs more than 125 people.

“If somebody wants to come and make that kind of investment in Chicago, we are going to do our best to be ahead of them,” Koch said. “We don’t want the city to be an obstacle.”

And why did Magee choose Chicago?

“It’s Chi-f******-cago,” said the plain-spoken, laid-back musician, who makes no secret of his affinity for smoking weed.

But there’s also a practical side to having a brewery here.

Chicago is a shipping hub; in California, the company was spending about $150,000 a month on freight costs.

That kind of money is better spent on a facility, Magee said,

And there’s the cachet of Chicago, as opposed to a neighboring suburb.

“If I’m going to sell beer from this brewery in Sweden and the UK as we do right now ... they all know where Chicago is,” he said. “I don’t think they know where Bedford Park is.”
