"Com really sunny might drive in from the Western burbs. And now the clouds have taken over, but they were lifting. We've got a beautiful weekend ahead of us. Good morning. I'm Lisa Dent in for John Williams. He'll be back tomorrow, which I said to his producer. Well, that's kind of odd. He should have taken tomorrow off, and then he could have had a series of days off. But you know, I'm a fan, so I'll be glad to hear him tomorrow. I came in today and sun was shining. They were power washing the sidewalks at Maggie Daley Park. And then I was pulling into the parking garage at 303 East Wacker. There was a lot of commotion so much so that I didn't think I was going to get into the garage. So there were police vehicles their were vans. There were garbage trucks and you know, usually when they have garbage trucks in Chicago, it means they're trying to prevent anybody from stopping something. The garbage trucks were actually in use. And Dave in its in the studio. Dave, do you come in that parking garage and lower Wacker down there? I do. Well, I come by it. I don't park in there. Okay, so homeless people, or should I say people without a home have been continually Camping there. I mean, there's tents, and there's some elaborate setups. Is that fairly new or has that been going on? Because I was here in May and I didn't really notice too much on the Randolph side or the whackers side. It's the Randolph side. Yeah, I, um Yeah, they they've been there, right? No, no. You've been there for a while. Okay, well, today, they're all getting evicted. So that's what was going on. You know, I was in great spirits, and I'll just be honest. I've got a soft heart and so Having read a lot about people without homes, you know that mental health is a big factor. And they say that 22 to 48% of people without a home in Chicago have suffered a traumatic brain injury close to 50% of women without a home have cited domestic violence, says the reason why they're homeless. But mental health is definitely a factor. So they woke these people up. I was watching as they were kind of shaking tents and they were taking their stuff and Putting it in the garbage truck. Now, I'm sure there are mental health experts down there. I would hope Chicago PD was put in charge of this task, which I'm like. You don't want to have to come to work. Put your uniform Monaco shake some homeless people awake and say you've got to move today, so I'm not sure how much time they were giving them or where they're telling them to go. But It's obvious they are cleaning them out of that area. Yeah, yeah, And so it's kind of intriguing. It's like okay, what's going on? Maybe Fourth of July weekend. Lots of tourists. I remember when we put a bid in for the Olympics years back. Remember how they cleaned up every homeless encampment in Chicago. I mean, overnight they were bringing in the You know the bigwigs to try and woo them to give us the Olympics, and they just They cleaned everybody out, and then they put up big fencing so they couldn't come back. So it'll be interesting. When I leave today as to what I see. They're not the only people being evicted. Of course evictions have resumed in Illinois, and that is for tenants who have been protected. You know, because of Covid. But you know, on the other side, the moratorium on evictions has impacted landlords who depend on rent his income. I mean, if you have 11 place that you rent out in Chicago, and you can't get anyone to pay rent. You're in a tough spot to. In fact, there's a woman Rose are via. She owns one property, and, she said, We're paying two mortgages, borrowing money from family Using money we save for our kid's college fund. We basically used all of our savings that we've worked all of our lives to get. And they have one condo in the West Loop and their tenant has not paid since 2019. And an eviction order was was, you know, issued just as a pandemic began, and then they put a moratorium on evictions, but that is being lifted. So a lot of action and movement in the city today and Walter Jacobson is with us. He's going to offer his perspective this morning. Coming up on W G. N Double.

So the E network is doing these marathons of of Kardashian shows Bob and Dean. There's an old saying they're laughing all the way to the bank. And how Yeah, Let's see. I love hearing, Excelsior said with emphasis every day. I look forward to hearing it. It's a positive way to go on with your day. Well, I look forward to that, too, because that's right at the end of the broadcast. Head of our broadcast day here in the morning. Let's see here. Mm. That's this, Um Now we I mentioned that, right?

High atop next our radio city where the banks of the Chicago River meets the lakefront. Is three whole three East Wacker Drive three or three East Wacker Drive, Chicago six or 601, I think, Okay, that's it. It's 10 minutes. Before eight o'clock, So this is a bad time Andy for the Milwaukee Brewers to be hot, They've won five minute roll, right? Yeah, they were playing Colorado and they were playing Arizona. So I mean, there's some reasoning behind it, and the schedule for the Cubs is June has been brutal with some of the pitching that they've seen. But yeah, they ran into the buzzsaw last night with Clayton Kershaw. Shutting them down, basically, and now they're three games behind the Brewers heading into this three game series in Milwaukee. So you really can't afford to get too much further behind here. I mean, I know it's a long season. Still, we're only talking about July, but you you want to get some momentum back. Bad time for Rizzo to have a bad back, huh? Yeah, he came out of the game. And you wonder if it was the back or just the fact that you know David Ross was kind of Giving some of the regulars a little bit of arrest yesterday because at one point it was six. Nothing. It felt like 100. Nothing because it was just mowing everybody down. Um so hopefully he'll be okay. Well, we'll find out later today if he's in the lineup tonight, but, uh, yeah. You really can't afford to lose anybody to be honest with you. And how long is a braille going to be out? Do we know yet? No, no, no indication yet, But you know, it had to be a rather painful situation for a guy like Jose ready to leave a game. You have to fight him, and he's a big dude to try to get him out of a lineup, and it certainly didn't look good from where it hit him. But he was able to walk off with a little help and Hopefully, it's a they say day today, you know, that's the kind of a cliche that we, you know, we all go by, uh, but we'll see if he's in the lineup player today when they take on the twins. Yeah, he was hitting the knee by a pitch and I don't want to see that replay anymore. So it hurts to look at. Yeah, that's that's enough. And I have a question about this business of, uh, examining pictures for sticky stuff. Yes. Are they supposed to do that after the first inning? You know, there's a lot of, uh, There's a lot of great between this In this new memo. It looks as though it seems to be the first the third of the fifth. Has won. These guys are getting checked. Now again. A manager can ask for someone to be checked during the game in the middle of an inning. We saw that with Joe Girardi and Max Scherzer the other night in Philadelphia. Now the Santiago situation happened in the middle of an inning. That's because he was being replaced out of pitching change, and when he came off, that's when they examined the glove and determined that there was a A sticky substance that have developed on the inside of his glove where he puts his palm and he says, it's rosin combined with the sweat of the day. It was a very human day, but apparently you're not allowed. I didn't even know this rule. You know, there's a rosin bag at the back of the mound for everybody. So it's not like that's an illegal substance. But you're not allowed to put it on your glove hand, apparently because he was he was batting on the back of his palm or the back of his hand on both sides. And when he put his hand in the glove, he said that the sweat And the rosin combination form that sticky substance. But I guess you're not allowed to have the substance a math glove hand, which makes no sense to me. I heard this Sunday night baseball guys talking about this last night in this. This will be interesting going forward, especially as you get towards the trading deadline. Is this going to really affect pitchers and how? How good they are. And are you going to start seeing More high scoring games. Yeah, it's a possibility. You know they they interviewed Trevor Bauer during the game last night. It was really interesting to hear his point of view on this whole thing, because, he said that you know, basically with the with the sticky stuff will allow some pictures to do is to be able to Hold the ball a little bit longer, and you're actually being able to put more torque on it because you're on top of it, and you're in your momentum. Mistake you get down creates a little more movement. So he's saying that you know the stuff some of the stuff they need to use because they need to be able to grip the ball. I mean, that's that's part of what we were talking about earlier. But there are some guys that use it to the extreme where certain substances will allow you to hold the ball a little bit better and got to hold it as tight and that way you're not, you know, shorting your pitches or bury him in the in the dirt. It's an ugly thing right now for baseball because it's happening in the middle of a season a season. Everybody's excited about because it's getting back to somewhat normal. It's 100 and 62 games. You see fans in the stands and and now this Which, of course, was talked about in spring training. But didn't didn't get enforced until a week ago. It was the whole idea here, Uh, the the games were being dominated by pitchers. Pitchers. Yeah, I mean, that was with that. It's somebody was sitting in a dark room in New York and Major League baseball's front offices and said, Hey, you know what? We're having too many to one games. So let's take Let's try to give the advantage back to the hitters. You know what I have turned into my father who loved watching these pictures. Do all this as we used to call him one and nothing 2 to 1. And you know, as kids, you just want to see a good 15 to 14 home run battle, but the close games with strategy I mean, you know you can't beat that. Really. If you're a student of the game like we are, of course, so right now it's it's as Trevor Bauer said last night. It's It's one of the three true outcomes. Now it's either Strikeout, walk her home run. And, you know, Okay if you like the it's like the home run, Great, but I'd rather see a game that didn't have all those walks. Yeah. Are we going to get back to, uh, bunting and stealing bases that I don't? I doubt there's so many people out there that have such an issue with bunting. It drives me it's It's absolutely hilarious to watch this on Twitter. If somebody bunts Oh, my goodness Gracious. The world has come to an end. You know it's a bunch big deal. You know the solution is there. Andy, Stop, stop our media and a shame on me. We'll get all the news for you here at eight o'clock from the northwestern medicine newsroom and we'll.

"I am? Right? Evil can evil If anyone could descend from a ladder out of a helicopter, it would be Robin. That's for sure. No, I so with the with the snow, you know we're here. You know, now with 303 East Wacker, right? Had a perfect view of Wacker Drive a perfect view of the Lake Shore drive, and it's still coming down pretty hard. And how long will that continue? Do you think today This will go into early tonight? Dean along the lake, And as I say, we'll probably pick up another 2 to 5 inches. That's Maddie in the background bark is, she says, I don't approve of this. That's our little doggie. Uh, boy, there's a trip taking your dog out in the snow. They either love it or they hate it. Matty stops and says, You think I'm going out in this? You're crazy. You do it first, and then I'll do it. Yeah, exactly. Yeah. How would you like to be asked to go out through this? What? Effectively, Matty says to us. So Dean handle snow, and we got 20 to 30 mile per hour winds coming in off the lake, And it's a fascinating scene. I'm a pure, uh, in the eggs, Water neighborhood just three blocks north of the end of lecture Dr. Looking down at the water. The lake is filled with pancake guys. You probably have a great view of it from the studio there, Dean and the way Sure coming through it. So it's fun. It's interesting to watch how these big waves driven by all this wind are coming in against this ice shrouded, ice covered, you know Lake of the up against the shoreline here. It's quite a scene. So we are expecting if you know, I've been reading your updates properly. In addition to What we're getting today. When it'll finally ends. It's gonna be a pretty cold week coming up. It looks like yeah, it will be denied. We've got a windy storm coming in later in the week on that's supposed to put us in suddenly winds that should warm us up some Uh, say Thursday and then a pretty good chunk of cold air coming down. You know, it's happened, Dean. It's been fascinating to watch what we went through the first two thirds of this winter way above normal and temperature and was well acting, you know, lacking any snow, but this is a lot of senior year and those those winners in La Ninas that's a cooling of the equatorial Pacific water. It has an impact on North American weather. What it does to us is tend to produce above normal winters, precipitation, rain and snow. But also it's very volatile, and we're seeing that now the cold air in resided on the other side of the hemisphere over and Russia, Siberia, Asia, Even Europe was getting so good snows. Now it's crossed the polls come into this side of the hemisphere in the last week, and look what's happened that strengthens the jet stream. You get these storms to start rolling in off the Pacific. Woman write me from Sacramento. This storm when it crossed California produced 15 inches of rain and the low elevations collapsed. The Pacific highway that runs along the California coast. And produced 7 Ft. Of Snow in the California Sierra was shut down movement. This woman wrote me on Social media, said this island in Sacramento, she said, and I've never seen a storm like this. So this is the system that's jumped across the mountains. It's sitting and southern Indiana right now, with a web of isobars indicating a lot of wind around it. And of course, we're on the north side, so we get a northeast wind. Coming in from Lake Michigan and boy that wind can really slice through the area because there's nothing out there to stop it. Winds tend to drag along land surfaces and slow down through frictional drag. That were coming off. The lake has no little personal drag. And so it really blows into the city. Yeah, Yeah, Imagine you're gonna have some pretty spectacular weather pictures to show on your Your weather show's over the next couple of days, right? Yeah. You know somebody Joe Club Toschi from the Tinley Park sent me this picture. I just put up on Facebook. Look, he drew a face and from the snow accumulation on his car, you know, with a big smile on the hood. And the eyes on the windshield, and it's It's quite a shot. But, gosh, I've been sent pictures of little doggies being taken out running for the snow and having fun. And God's patio tables bearing 10 to 12 inches of snow, and it's really interesting and rulers. Uh, I've got a lot of people people in on our text line. People are sending me the ruler shots. They Yeah. Go outside with the yardstick to show what they've got. I've got several bird houses that are completely engulfed in snow. I've got the patio tables that were out there. Somebody. Somebody was just encouraging me the other day that because I love to do the cooking on TV Now that I should actually do cooking outside on the grill in the cold weather and wonderful idea, and I love that. I'm sure you would love it too. Nothing like boiling a steak and a 30 mile per hour Wind family falling snow As I was leaving the house this morning I was trying to find my barbecue girl to see if I could even see it it had been. It's completely drifted over with snow on while my dad so that there will definitely not be any, uh, Uncle Dean took cooking outdoor cooking segments for a while. But okay, so we have.

"Is that Struggling to survive, and that is something that most people don't realize about The hotel industry is it's not the big brain that own and operate these properties. It's not them that are struggling. It's local Illinois. What percentage of your hotel of our hotels? The hotels in the state are currently opened, you know? Most. I will say that we're getting more and more reports, particularly in the city of Chicago, especially downtown hotels that are shutting back down for the winter and suspending their operations like I held earlier today was about 25 properties that have thrown in the towel on the winter Congress increasing every day. That's downtown Chicago. Correct s O, You know, I've said this a few times, but the studios here are three or three. East Wacker, So I'm just across the river from the Sheraton Hotel, and I don't think it's ever reopened. I mean, it's you know, they're doing like window designs of gingerbread man now, just to sort of draw a little attention and lift people's spirits. But there's no one staying there. And I don't think they've ever re opened from the summer. Have they That's correct there. One of the several, especially you look at that property and several others downtown. Some of our largest ones. They're so relying on conventions and meetings that until those resumes, they're not going to reopen. On D. I mean, at a minimum, it's gonna be a year into that Those larger hotels have remained closed, and that's their fighting for survival. There. They're at risk of losing their properties, either because of back taxes, property taxes to the tune of 10 $11 million a year that they owe, But also the loans on the properties themselves that are are coming. Do so. Our downtown hotels at Reliant Meetings are the ones that are hurting the most. The occupancy rates two weeks ago in downtown Chicago was 12%. You can't survive at 12%. No, the Hilton Hilton hotels out with a statement. Last evening, the Hilton caught Chicago, Northbrook hosted a family wedding with about 150 people in attendance while it was booked before the latest mitigation efforts. We sincerely regret allowing the gathering to proceed. And our family apologizes to our guests, Employees and the community. It will take time. But we hope to rebuild trust. It will take time to rebuild a lot of things around here, Michael, But I mean, will there be a dramatically Where are we going to see behemoths like the Sheraton Hotel or others in downtown Chicago just never reopened. I think it's a little too early to figure that out. I think the thing about some of the big hotels downtown is that there's few opportunities for them convert into a different use because of the unique build of a hotel. So, um will they maybe change ownership or before close? We've seen foreclosures downtown already, I think absolutely Do I think we will lose some for good? Absolutely. I think it's just too early to tell exactly how many into you talk about foreclosures. What's the future? The Palmer House? It's going through the foreclosure process right now. Hopefully they'll find another owner for it here soon, And once we I mean we as an industry. We are anxiously awaiting that vaccine more than anybody else, because again with that, especially in the Chicago market without meeting convention, that is our lifeblood, and we need that vaccine. So once we are able to resume that that business with a greater capacity that I think you will see some of the larger properties like the Palmer House re open their doors. Sin from the Illinois Hotel and lodging Association, Michael We'll talk again in happier times. That might not be the next time, but eventually, when we talk, it'll be happier times. I'm looking forward to that day. Thanks for helping us out today. I appreciate it. The news coming up from the WGN news room, but first Then just make software for better customer service.

"Jon Hansen in for Bob's throughout on this Friday morning, 7 40 on 7 20. Thank you so much for listening. We certainly appreciate it. The sun is up hidden behind some clouds Look out to east from the 18th floor here. And a three or three East Wacker. Thank you so much for spending part of your day with us. I hope you had a great Thanksgiving whether it was done virtually or small group gathering. It seems like the reports were. Most people are no matter how you celebrate. It seems like there was plenty of food to be had and plenty of leftovers. I still can't get over the fact that Steve's wife, who we've now learned is her nickname is saucy rings a bell or ring a bell for Steve to wake him up and let him know that Thanksgiving meal was prepared. On, by the way, Steve Rogers. I don't know if you're think he's working on something else right now, but I don't know He's been covering the story of the Utah monolith. The giant piece of well I don't know what it is, but it looks like this silver reflective. Giant structure that was discovered by people checking up on sheep in Utah from a helicopter. They went down and discovered. I don't know if you've seen this story, but it's pretty incredible people thinking that maybe it's aliens planted that they're not exactly sure, maybe a piece of artwork But the Internet sleuth seemed to have figured out exactly what it is so again. This came from Smithsonian magazine in the Utah Desert. This giant metal it's about 15 ft. Tall, just this silver's reflective structure set up and it looks like that the Internet speculation has led to believe that it's actually left over. Pieces of work from film crews that are in the area. So read it dove into it, and they looked at old Google Earth images, satellite images going years and years back, and they found out this big monolith was put there sometime in the year. 2015 or 2016, And apparently, this area is ah, well done, and a lot of the movies that they do a lot of the films they film there. And Westworld was filmed right nearby this monolith over the past couple years and they think that it's a leftover piece of a set, but no one can seem filed to find in West world where it is. I don't know if you've been following this monolith story, Jordan the big structure in the Utah desert that people think aliens left. I have not whole story. But I wonder if one of these dolls might be talking. You're gonna pivot goes back to something. Steven, you've been covering this thing. No, this is crazy Smile reading about it. Yeah, some people. It almost looks like the top. Someone had a mim on online that it looks like the top of a globe like that's where the point up is where it rotates around that, um Cause it is just a kind of looks like what's in this 2001 space? Yeah, that's what I was going to say. But are you gonna tell people what they think It is a piece of set from Westworld left over which it kind of looks like it. But although I've seen I've seen all the episodes of Westworld, do we have a comparison to some pieces said that about that, too. I don't remember anything like that in West world right and the focus of the Utah Um Canyonlands National Park officials say they don't think it's a movie set leftover piece of what would it be? Because apparently, several other movies were shot in the area to Yeah, they filmed Indiana Jones and the last crusade Now, that would be 1989. So I doubt they left it over for that long. Thelma and Louise 127 hours, those all film there, but I can't picture a monolith in any of those films. It's really bizarre aliens. Yeah, let's just go with aliens. Okay? I mean, it's 2020. So that's a lot more exciting. It is. Yeah, although the doll theories also pretty good. Could be like stranger things too. You know, maybe that's where the upside down is located. Oh, I see what you're saying. There is this like It is. The crevice of the canyon is is right in line with the monolith. So some people thought maybe it was an artwork installation that would do it. I mean, who's dragging a giant monolith? Like I mean, artists I know like to have their work scene, right and and appreciated. I don't think you're dragging a monolith through the Utah desert to set up a czar work. No one's gonna see that hard work And I mean, this is very remote. Yes, they said, if you go to look at it, you may never come back. Yeah, I bet. Well, now everyone's going and they're posting photos because they found out where the coordinates were. But it's got to be an arduous journey. It's a little bit like Stonehenge, right? Exactly. Dragon. They have no idea how they transported all that rock there. It was a giant spaceship 200 million years ago. Dropping a marker Earth. Yeah. Are you in aliens, guys? TV, but you believe in it. Have done a little reading. I don't know if I believe it or not. Okay. All right. I've done a little reading. There's always a scary place to start with conspiracy theories, especially bits on the Internet. Let's get some hard news, though. The weather today we'll see the sun eventually, right, we will, but it's boy. It's taken awhile if At least where we are downtown is pretty bleak..
