The Weekend Desk Report

"The National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory for Saturday when temperatures are expected to be in the middle 90s but it will feel like 105 to 110 degrees," the Tribune reports.

If you want to cool down, go stand next to Rahm. His heart is forecast to remain below freezing and will feel even colder.

Market Report
Have Corn Prices Peaked?

Yes.

Portfolio District
"When Synesi Associates applied for Chicago Public Schools business working with struggling city high schools, it gave a seemingly impeccable reference, Barbara Byrd-Bennett, CPS' chief executive officer, documents obtained by the Chicago Sun-Times show.

"Synesi, which had never gotten any business from the Chicago schools before, got the job. But things didn't work out the way that Synesi's owners or Byrd-Bennett - a former employee of the north suburban educational consulting firm - hoped.

"The plan was for the company to do work at eight Chicago high schools - and get paid $1.9 million for that, the newly obtained records show. But state education officials overseeing the grant program Synesi was hired under called a halt to its involvement, questioning its qualifications."

Look, a cabal of Byrd-Bennett acolytes took over CPS right under Rahm Emanuel's nose and tried to squeeze it dry.

Meanwhile, Rahm's banker bud got a little too cute and now kids are paying the price.

It's that simple.

Ear To The Ground
"The White Sox haven't made any determinations on which direction they'll take as the trade deadline nears, GM Rick Hahn told reporters, including the Chicago Tribune's Colleen Kane," MLBTradeRumors.com notes.

"[T]he South Siders closed out the first half on a 9-3 run, giving the club a bit more optimism about its chances. 'Certainly if I did it from an emotional or fan standpoint, we want to be aggressive, we want to add,' said Hahn."

I don't think that's what fans are saying, Rick.
