The [Wednesday] Papers

"Demolition of the University of Chicago-owned American Taxi Service building at 5608 S. Stony Island Ave. is expected to begin this week and will continue until the end of November," the Chicago Maroon reports.

"The American Taxi Service building, built in 1928, was formerly used by Facilities Services and later converted into a rehearsal space for Court Theatre. However, Court Theatre moved out of the space in 2013. It has been vacant since then."

The Internet has no love for the American Taxi Service building, besides this Flickr photo, but it looks pretty cool and historic to me. 😢

Abortion Access
"Planned Parenthood has quietly been building a new abortion clinic in Illinois, just across the Mississippi River from St. Louis, as Missouri women concerned about the uncertain future of a St. Louis clinic flock across the state line," AP reports.

"Planned Parenthood officials said Wednesday that the 18,000-square-foot (1,700-square-meter) clinic in Fairview Heights, 12 miles east of St. Louis, will provide abortion care as well as family planning. It opens later this month."

Boo Beetlejuice
"Chicago's throwback pop culture pop-up bar bubble shows no signs of bursting anytime soon," Eater Chicago notes.

"The Bassline at 2239 S. Michigan Avenue will host the latest, based on Tim Burton's classic 1988 movie Beetlejuice, which starred Michael Keaton as the crude and comedic spirit."

I'm only including this item as an opportunity to tell y'all that I did not care for that movie.

Nike's Doping Coach
'On Monday night, more than four years after the agency launched its investigation of medical misconduct and rules violations within AlbertoSalazar's prestigious Nike Oregon Project, an arbitration panel delivered perhaps the most resounding blow in track: It ruled that the world's most famous track coach had violated anti-doping rules and will be banned from the sport for four years.

"The news came as Salazar's athletes are dominating running's premier events. Two have set world records this year; others have already won gold at this week's World Championships or are set to race Tuesday night or later in the week; still others will vie for the win in the Chicago Marathon in two weeks. Effective immediately, Salazar can no longer coach those athletes - or any pro runners - and cannot serve on their support teams at events."
