The [Tuesday] Papers

"Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Tuesday announced the members of a grocery store task force that will work to find new owners for stores left vacant after Safeway closes all Dominick's stores in the Chicago-area Dec. 28," the Tribune reports.

Proposition: Buy this empty grocery store and we'll throw in an empty school for free!

Safe Passage
"Schools of small fish are capable of crossing an electrical barrier designed to keep Asian carp from using the Chicago ship canal to enter the Great Lakes, according to a new research report from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers," AP reports.

Did They Check The Internet?
"In a bizarre case, Chicago authorities can't account for 1,216 cats," Catster reports.

Actually, not funny.

"In September, the city received a complaint about Purrs From The Heart, alleging that the cats it 'rescued' were living in inhumane conditions. Now, a week or so into the investigation, the state's Department of Agriculture says it can't account for 1,216 cats Purrs From The Heart pulled between April and September . . .

"When state officials went to a South Side apartment where as many as 150 cats in Purrs From The Heart's care had once lived, there no cats were there. The organization also said it sent a bunch of cats to a rural barn; investigators didn't find any cats there, either. Oh, and oops - neither the apartment nor the rural barn were authorized foster providers."

Infrastructure Bust
"The Chicago Infrastructure Trust has delayed to January from December the timeline for bringing its inaugural deal to the City Council for approval," Bond Buyer reports.

I don't have a subscription so I can't tell you more.

The trust is featured in the December issue of Governing. I haven't read it yet but let's hope it's a bit of a reality check. Perhaps if it wasn't rushed through the city council at Rahm's behest, it could have been better thought-out.

Beatbox This!
"And you thought daily beatboxing practice with high-octane percussive sounds would ruin your kid's voice?" IANS reports.

"Not really. If we believe H. Steven Sims of University of Illinois in Chicago, beatboxing may actually be gentler on vocal cords - even softer than singing itself!"
