Shame is Good morning, Bob. Happy Friday. Yes, sir. Let's start with the news about the city approving the sale of Ah, more than century old vacant firehouse in Jefferson Park. What's gonna happen here? That's right. We've been following this for four years. Now. It's been actually five years since Lake Effect Brewing Company made plans to to buy into the old firehouse at 48 41 North Lips Avenue, which is kind of tucked away along near the junction in Jefferson Park. It's part of the bigger plan. They're gonna be apartments above the brewery. It finally went through it. Like I said, it took five years. There were lawsuits there. Work. There were public meetings. But just this week, the City Council agreed to sell it to the developer who partnered with Lake effect Brewing, which is if you've never tried before. It's a great too great local craft beer place that I've been wanting to open up a tap room for for years. They grew nearby, but they're going to move the whole operation over there. Whenever this project is completed there hoping to they've got to clear a bunch of old lead paint out of Building and then they're going to start building, so it's a cool project. I don't know if I would want to live directly above the breweries, but they're gonna build brand new apartments up there night of them, and the renderings are pretty cool. This this player house it was built in 1906. It's been It's been vacant for a long time in the city is just looking for some way to redevelop it, Get it off their hands and reactivated from the neighborhood. So congrats to Ambrosio homes and and make effect brewing. I'm finally getting this over the finish line. Some people would like to live above a brewery, especially these days. I think from the Northwest side, let's move south to Ukrainian village and what's going on there? This is well my favorite story of the day. Uh, gentleman by the name of Robert Majette. He's the owner of to Korea Cocina Ukrainian village and he started just last week. A really great initiative. He said he was out early one morning last week and saw a tamale vendor who was layered in about five layers of clothes was about 15 degrees out. And it occurred to him. You know what If I just bought all over tamales, she could go home and go back to bed. Get out of the cold. So he pulled over but 10 dozen tamales from her, give her a huge tip, and she was so thrilled. She immediately left And then he went and distributed all these tamales to homeless encampments in some other places, and and it went so You know it went so well that he went and did it the next morning, and you've done it every morning. Since then, he's been posting it on Facebook. There's a Facebook page called West Town Steeds. Which is a larger initiative to for folks to donate money for projects not necessarily like this one. But some of the money being donated. There is helping to buy these tamales. So just a just a great guy for doing this, he post the stories about the photos of the people and they all have just really well. You can only imagine their expressions are all wearing masks. But you could see it in their eyes how happy they are that he comes and plops down, usually about 300. 50 bucks each time leaves him about a $50 tip. And then he's been partnering with the homeless shelters and sometimes just going straight to the encampments under viaducts in places and passing out the hot tamale. So you know just one guy in his family and is getting some more volunteers to do it now, just a great initiative, and it's one of those stories. Chicago and helping Chicago wins get through whatever we need to get through. How great is that? His places on northwestern, right? Right. It's a 10 22 Northwestern Avenue. When I've seen a lot of social media chatter about all I've seen that place. I gotta you know, after hearing this, I gotta I gotta go and support him now as well. Yeah, it's coming full circle, and he's just said if you need Any help if you need food. There's some information on our website phone numbers to call email addresses, and he says, You don't need to tell me why you need it. There's no qualifications and you feel like you need it Reach out. We got you. So that's the kind of story we like to see in here for sure. And absolutely we don't get it enough and helps on the way on the near West side. For some folks in Pilsen, who could really use some help? Right? Yeah, absolutely, You know, similar story. This is a food pantry that's been open in Pilsen for awhile. Um, it's called the, uh, it's called the Pilsen Food pantry. It's operated by the Figaro, Wu Family Foundation, and they to do a great job all around the Pilsen area, but They've They did a study and they realized that there's a big chunk of folks in the ward that they're trying to serve that are a little bit too far away to reach this by foot there little isolated by by by fire trucks, blocking them across the across the highway, So they're partnering with a couple different groups, including Reggie's Rock Club in the South Loop. Reggie's is loaning the food pantry. It's It's big red bus that they used used in the Ask for the road trips and for taking people the Bears games. They're loaning it to this food country on Mondays and Thursdays, and it's going to just drive around This'll neighborhood on the near West side making scheduled stops. People can get on it for free. We'll take you to the food pantry. It'll be around for you to get back there. Just trying to really open it up to about the 1000 families. They figured I'm the near West side that live in low income units around Roosevelt. Team to Loomis and Morgan. And there is trying to get to those people because they recognize that their their services are extremely useful. But if people can't get to him, they're they're leaving people isolated. So another another good story of Chicago and helping folks. It's called the Pilsen Food Pantry, 18 50 South South Troop Street. Good news from Black Club Chicago. Shameless to me. Have a good weekend. Thank you. You two about. Thanks. And I forget my chart dot.

"Regarding the Briana Taylor case, Attorney at County Law, Karen County Good morning care, and Let's start with some new facts that have come to light. What's the latest on what we know at this hour? Well, you know, I think What I'd like to do is just kind of go through happened here because again. It may not be a popular thing to say at this point, but you have to look at it from the policeman standpoint of what they were doing. They were given a no knock warrant, but they didn't use it. They not OK. They did it at midnight, which is not a good time to knock on anybody the door And in this day and age, with people having guns, you know, I don't know that that was a good decision, but they did it. And when they did that they were shot at and they shot back. Um, so the jury the grand jury obviously thought the policemen board in their rights to fire back and they were shot upon. The problem was, there was one police officer who was charged who shot through a window and the window is covered with a curtain and that was against police protocol because you don't shoot into apartment building but other people. People there without knowing where your target is. And that was against police rules, and he was charged with Theo endangerment. So if you look at the facts, just without passion, and without you know, without any emotion, it makes sense that what happened here now what was the tragedy? Of course it wass should they have got even got in there the way they did. Maybe that's the problem rather than what the police did. What about identifying themselves yelling? Police! The training is I think you have to yell so loud, Everybody Can hear you s Oh, people in that building should've heard right? Yeah. And others There were varying accounts. From what I understand that several of the neighbors said they heard nothing in one neighborhood. Hear them call police. We don't know that. And remember this was a no knock warrant, so they they didn't say that they Announced themselves, but they didn't have to. Because the warrant told them that they didn't have to do that would help to have body Cam video. But they don't they don't wear the body cams there, do they? No, no, that would have helped quite a bit T to at least have people understand what the facts are? Because I understand the outrage. I understand. Ah, life is gone. But, you know, we have to look at where the problem was. And it may have been in extending in police officers at midnight when they probably didn't have to. Why couldn't they have just knocked on the door in the morning and said, I have a warrant to search your place, and then it would have gone smoothly. I ended. The problem. Seems like the police also got some bad information. Rounding who was in that apartment, didn't they? Yeah. I mean, I don't know how they would have known the boyfriend was there or not, there was there was a gun there. I don't know. I don't know all the facts and we don't know all the facts and we probably will, at some point. Ah, in Illinois. No knock warrants are legal and they're issued at the discretion of a judge. Correct, right? Right. And you have to show probable cause and you have to show that this is necessary to protect evidence and you know, and you have to show certain things and you know the scrutinize them. They definitely scrutinized them because they are dangerous. What about the attorney general in Louisville, who was part of the Republican convention? Was that something he should have avoided knowing this case that he was involved with would be politically charged. If you had that job. What would you have done? Yeah, You know, The problem is that state's attorneys and attorneys general, our political animal they run for office. They run under the Democrat or Republican banner, so, but they do and this is how they get elected. So you know, I don't know if that was a good political move or not. I think it brings him up to scrutiny because I think you know Democrats are going to stay well. He's just a Republican, and he doesn't understand these racial issues and, of course, You know, he probably was just doing his job too. It's Ah, Well, what? What's next? Now? Here here, Karen. What? What? What do we expect to hear going forward? Um, my guest is that this police officer who was charged or plead guilty to something, whether it's at charge that he was that was leveled against him or some lesser charge. He'll probably served a little bit of time and and they'll still be investigation then, and maybe even more inquiry. It looks like the FBI is also looking at this from a federal standpoint. Um, to see if there was anything that was missed. And the case the case won't go away. I'm sure appreciate the legal counsel on all this. Attorney County luck here in county. Have a good day. Okay. Thankyou to 7 26. Right now we'll get our extremely local news report from Black Club Chicago. Coming up after our 7 30 news and this morning.
