    The “New Track in Lake Forest” is a Metra story, not CTA.

    Another crash on Ridge Ave in Evanston. Everyone has their own idea of how to “fix” Ridge. For anyone walking east or west through Evanston, Ridge is the hardest street to cross. Proposals to widen the street will only make crossing it even harder.

    The other candidates (as of now, Bridget Gainer isn’t a candidate for mayor) also have a lot of tickets. Do regular folks get dozens of tickets, too? The state should start issuing different license plates to drivers who get too many tickets. That way everyone will know they are dangerous.

    Gainer also doesn’t pay her property taxes on time.

    It takes some dedication to rack up that many tickets / fines / camera alerts. I guess we should appreciate them helping balance the city’s books.
