Thanks to generous support from readers and advertisers, we are now in the home stretch of our campaign to revive this website. The Streetsblog Resurrection Fund now contains $47,040, which means we’ve only got $2,960 to raise in order to win the $25K challenge grant from the Chicago Community Trust that will allow us to resume publication. However, we now have only five days to come up with that money before out April 8 reboot deadline, so it’s crunch time. If you value Streetsblog Chicago’s hard-hitting transportation reporting and haven’t already donated to the resurrection fund, please do so today.

Thanks again for your support!

    I like Jeff Danna’s ideas for Beverly and hope that we can get a community dialogue going to work for change, because what we’ve got now isn’t healthy and isn’t really working for the community.

    On a scale of 1 to “I could write one word-for-word before looking”, how predictable were the comments to the Main Street Beverly article?

    Ha! You’d have to use kid numbers to rate it on that scale. A billion kajillion.
