He has had over 20 years to figure out what needs to be done and now he needs to extend it 90 days? Stalling tactics.

Nothing is as simple as it seems on the surface but I concur 20 years is a good lang time to "plan". Now any "plan" has to go through the Democratic intelligencia to see where it all fits in the Rita-Madigan-Quinn-Obama Democratic Socialist Party scheme of things ...

Don't expect any of the "plans" to benefit the reisdents of Blue Island or to improve our city's image ...

The new administration has failed to implement any plans to revitalize Blue Island. They are cemented in the past because they are part and partners in the failure.

That's like blaming Dcon for having roaches in their motels. You get rid of the filth that currently inhabits BI and the city will rise like a Phoenix. Have you stuck your head in the sand so far that you can't see there is a common denominator to all the destruction on the south side. It's the African race. Open your eyes! They are a blight on society.

A framed copy of Rosa Parks' police booking photo hangs on a wall in Michael Nerheim's office. The image of the late civil rights icon and activist, who was arrested in 1955 after refusing to give up her seat on a Montgomery, Alabama bus, reminds the new Lake County State's Attorney of his mission.

"It actually was the inspiration of my 8-year-old son, who chose Rosa Parks for a school project," Nerheim said. "When I look at that picture, I see justice and courage."

Magicians call it misdirection.

When the audience is distracted looking one way, the "magic" happens. The BIIP administration, is no different. We should all be watching.

Raise everything from city stickers to building permits for those who purchase them. Those that never do, hats off your the smart ones nobody enforces them anyway contractors are working weekends knowing full well that inspectors work Monday - Friday only . The new building dept head should rotate inspectors so one is roaming weekends.If you call the P.D. and ask to cite a vehicle on your block that has no sticker since you shelled out money for your own cars parked in your garage and nothing gets done.

Habitat restoration project puts 30,000 catfish in Chicago, Little Calumet rivers

BY MELISSA ESPANA Staff Reporter June 10, 2014 7:16PM

Updated: June 10, 2014 8:33PM

People looking down at the Chicago River from Wacker Drive on Tuesday may have caught a glimpse of the 10,000 catfish that had been dumped into the water.

In all, Friends of the Chicago River and the Illinois Department of Natural Resources released 30,000 channel catfish at two locations on Tuesday. Downtown, they were put into the water at Lower Wacker and Franklin Street. The other 20,000 were released into the Little Calumet River near Blue Island.

Releasing the catfish is the first step in a $300,000 habitat restoration project that includes installing nesting areas where the fish can reproduce.

“Today is just a sign of the comeback of the Chicago waterway,” said Debra Shore, commissioner of the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago.“Now many fish can thrive here, where many years ago, none could.”

John Quail, director of watershed planning for Friends of the Chicago River, said the catfish are a sign of how the river is much less polluted than it was 20 to 30 years ago.

The catfish released Tuesday were about a year old and a few inches long. They will be ready to reproduce in two or three years; Quail said it is hoped the fish will eventually repopulate the river system.

Catfish were released because most people are familiar with the species and it’s a fisherman’s favorite, Quail said. Unfortunately for those who like to fish — and those who like a good catfish dinner — the fish aren’t big enough to eat. And it’s not even known if they will be safe to eat, either.

Major portions of all spending thus far have gone in appointments and no-bid contracts to cronies and/or political campaign contributors of the municipal officials running Blue Island.
