Two weeks ago, Kathleen Alforque, 34, was walking to a Lakeview bus stop when she spotted a group of people outside a shuttle. One of them asked her which way she was headed. Alforque said she was on her way to the Loop. She got on the shuttle instead of her normal CTA bus. Alforque said it took her only 15 minutes to get to the Aon Center, which was about five to seven minutes faster than her typical trip on the No. 135 Clarendon/LaSalle Express from Belmont and Sheridan. "The ride was really comfortable.

One local Irish group doesn't have the luck of Irish. Chicago Department of Transportation approved a permit last week that will allow a local Irish brotherhood group to hold a St. Patrick's sidewalk march on March 10 in Wrigleyville. But event organizer Michael Cino envisioned a grander affair. Cino said he wanted to shut down part of Clark Street for his event, which he wanted to wind around Wrigley Field. Instead, an event has been approved to take place only on the Clark Street sidewalk between Roscoe Street and Waveland Avenue.

Andy Thayer, co-founder of Gay Liberation Network, said that even though parts of the Defense of Marriage Act were ruled unconstitutional, the court's refusal to rule on the substance of California's Proposition 8 case shows that the fight for LGBT equal rights...

Depending on whom you ask, crime in Lakeview is on the decline, a longtime problem, or poised to climb dramatically. Earlier this summer the local police commander, Elias Voulgaris, announced that one of Lakeview's beats, dense with bars and bordered by foot-traffic heavy Belmont Avenue and Halsted Street, is leading the city in robberies.

In 2012, Grace Sweeney did the impossible. She found a studio in Lincoln Park for $745 a month -- just within the budget she kept as an unpaid intern out of college. It was steps from Fullerton Avenue and Clark Street, had a walk-in closet and utilities included ... but no kitchen. "It had a full-sized fridge, which was nice, and a microwave, and I bought myself a toaster oven. I did my dishes in the [bathroom] sink," Sweeney said. "It was definitely a crazy trade-off, but the price was great.

The CTA and Mayor Emanuel's office announced a detailed proposal last week to create express bus service on Ashland Avenue, but don't expect residents, riders or business owners to sign on too quickly. The project would dedicate one center travel lane in each direction along Ashland Avenue between 95th Street and Irving Park Road for bus rapid transit, express bus service that typically relies on green-light priority and dedicated lanes for buses. The move is expected to improve bus speeds up to 83 percent along Ashland Avenue.
