The [Monday] Papers

By Steve Rhodes

1. "In many cases promised 'legacy' facilities seem designed not to meet actual needs of current park users but to accommodate the requirements of Olympic planners," Curtis Black writes at Newstips. "In many cases they involve taking away existing resources while promising residual benefits sometime in the future. In some cases they involve taking away facilities that have been only recently built."

2. "[M]uch of the federal money intended for schools 'is still sitting in state coffers - despite long lists of unmet needs in many school districts'," NPR reports. (Via This Week in Education)

3. "For the unemployed it is often difficult to keep that 'clean cut' look for interviews," a post on Edgewater Developments notes. "If you have no job and no income, it is often difficult to maintain a clean professional look at the interview. Charles, from Salon 64, recognizes this and would like to help honest individuals struggling with applications and interviews. He lays out his following service:

Salon 64: Free Hair Services for the Unemployed
1064 W. Bryn Mawr
Chicago, IL 60660

"Receive a free haircut, shampoo, blow dry with documented proof of unemployment and job search. Please bring unemployment documents and employment agency documents to 1064 W Bryn Mawr, ask for Charles."

4. "At Town Hall, Currie and Raoul Tiptoe Around Democratic Dysfunction."

5. "Two years ago, the City of Waukegan was on fire," Esther J. Cepeda writes in her return to the pages of the Sun-Times. "Today, the city's mayor, a Latina community activist and the police work hand-in-hand."

The column is not, sadly, now available online.

6. From our very own Natasha Julius:

"I know the Hossa deal looks set to screw the Hawks' salary cap for the next couple of years, but seriously? I had no idea the top-line talent was literally fighting for every last cent.

7. Lolla in Review: Video reports from Greg Kot and Jim DeRogatis, as well as performance video of Dan Deacon and a woman being arrested for traipsing in Buckingham Fountain.

8. The White Sox Report: "The Small Bears placed Carlos Zambrano on the 15-day disabled list for recurring back spasms. Upon closer inspection, team doctors found his problems to stem from Z's diaper, somehow gone unchanged since February 9. The staff expects a full recovery, and for Carlos to return up to 22 pounds lighter."

9. The Cub Factor: What's really gotten into Derrek Lee.

10. 24 Hours With Penthouse TV: It's even worse than you think.
