The pill Hobart is wanting the city to take would be easier to swallow, if they were bringing American Family, AT&T, Motorola, or something like it to fill up this building with 300-400 Jobs.

The TIF district does not include a Property Tax abatement. Those are features of the Enterprise Zone which this site is not a part of. Would like to know how we are going to force that one through against our rules.....not that I doubt they will do it. Take a look at the eligible TIF expenses and tell me where they are going to lie to us to classify 1.8 million of a 4 million project as TIF eligible.…

Could be or it could be for a burnout. which could be defined as unsafe because you lack complete traction. Or it could be for accelerating too fast but not buring the tires and without going over the speed limit. or she could have exited a private drive like the bowling alley without properly yielding.

Just remember that getting taxable property there doesn't bring in any extra $$ for the city. What it does is lower property taxes for the rest of us. Obviously more $$ back for more expensive properties (i.e. same % saved across the board).

I share many of the experiences described here by others – for me though the crossroad was when the church changed the definition of a “mortal sin”. With a stroke of the pen all of a sudden it became OK to eat meat on Friday and attending mass on Sat night fulfilled one’s obligation for Sunday. This still doesn’t make sense to me. A MORTAL SIN isn’t something that is open to a definition change – not…

Bears retire Mike Ditka's number

9 months, 3 weeks ago Associated Press

No. 89 was honored during a halftime ceremony at Monday's game

From Associated Press:

It was Mike Ditka's day in Illinois - and his night at Soldier Field.

Gov. Pat Quinn's office said Monday that he's declared it "Mike Ditka Day" in honor of the former Chicago Bears player and Super Bowl-winning coach whose jersey was retired.

The Hall of Fame tight end's No. 89 was retired during a halftime ceremony Monday night when the Bears hosted the Dallas Cowboys.

The Bears showed highlights of his playing and coaching career and rolled out the red carpet at midfield before he walked out to a thunderous ovation.

There were more video tributes from players, and chairman George McCaskey told the crowd the honor was "a long time coming."

With the 1963 championship and Lombardi trophies along with a Hall of Fame bust alongside him, Ditka said he's "been living a dream for 74 years."

Ditka was the 14th Bear to have his number retired by the team.

"You don't play the game or coach this game with this in mind," Ditka told reporters afterward. "It's the icing on the cake, the final candle, whatever you want to call it. It's been a hell of a run."

At an event earlier in the day, chairman George McCaskey called Ditka "the most iconic Bear alive."

"He's the Coach," McCaskey said. "Great career as a player, and while this doesn't go directly to retiring a jersey, you can't ignore the fact that he was the coach of the Super Bowl Bears."

The 1985 team is widely considered one of the greatest in NFL history.
