"All enslaved people be free and it was the time when the end of chattel slavery was done away with in this country now. Also passing with bipartisan backing in extension of a law passed during the pandemic that allows establishments to serve cocktails to go this time though. Wine also is allowed to be taken to go in the plan. Also let's bars through part of the summer. Anyway give patrons a free drink if they show proof of a covid vaccination. Now you're going to see in exchange between representative kice wheeler who's actually on camera with the measure sponsor representative mike celeski. Who you can't see on cam is a shot for a shot is that we're looking at like a shot for shot shot and a beer. It's got many permutations but it's designed to help people get vaccinated this case. I say let's give it a shot. Thanks thank you sir. You hear those groans of good natured. Groaning of humor there but backers say that this is actually something that could make a serious impact. I think this is a great initiative to really do two things that are important in our communities right now. One is to support the food and beverage industry. These restaurants bars that were so dramatically impacted over the course of the last year and are now starting to reopen their doors to invite people back in to your to your local watering hole. See friends and family and neighbors. I get together once again. This is a great way to do that. And it's also at the same time as promoting an important public health initiative of running vaccination that is just a sip of flavor. If you will of the measures that passed also passing a bill that we've reported on that aims to ban schools from restricting students hairstyles. So think afros and briggs an and then you have other pieces of legislation that are still held up like an elected school board for cps negotiations ongoing there and then a plan his stalled to require mandatory fingerprinting in background checks. Whenever someone applies for a state gun licence a void or firearm owners identification card illinois is already very behind on issuing these avoid cards to the point that the state is facing numerous lawsuits over it but backer that this measure is about violence prevention. They call it the block. Legal ownership for bio. Bill can look at your newspaper. You can turn on the news. You can ask your neighbors. You can ex- children your community. Why do we need to pass the bio bill because we need to do our one job and saved the lives of our children in our community members so some of those stalled measures. There is still time for them to quickly pass with session carrying through monday. One to watch out for. There is an effort to repeal an illinois law that requires parental notification for anyone under the age of eighteen can have an abortion by the way just before we went on air. We've been talking a lot. This week about redistricting democrats unveiled new maps for the illinois house. And the senate they say. They've taken into account feedback that they received yesterday in tuesday had the chance to look them over yet to see if that will do anything to a slash a lot of the complaints from the gop and from a lot of community organizations also on the dock of this weekend. As i noted earlier that major energy package and we will be back later in the program with deputy governor christian mitchell to learn more about it so for now back to you with those mass like we talked about last night that i pass was kind of a strategy to then come back with a another version saying hey we listened to everybody anyway.

"Bicycle sales skyrocketed in twenty twenty as the pandemic forced more people to exercise and commute outdoors but the surge in demand plus supply chain issues led the lingering shortages still being felt in chicago cycling community chicago. Tonight's quinn myers checked in with local bike shops in cycling groups last month about the tumultuous past year and what to expect this season. Here's another look bike shops across chicago. Say they've never experienced anything like twenty twenty. It was absolutely insane. I've been in this business for twenty five years. I've been a bike retailer. That long and i have never seen anything like it. Justina frank is the co owner of cosmic bikes in jefferson park which sells and fixes a wide range of styles. At first frank says last year bike. Boom was really great until they ran out of stuff to sell from her. We were still chugging along. And then i don't remember exactly when but at some point there was nothing more we could get. There was a point in the summer where we couldn't get basic inner tube sizes some really basic components to do repairs on people's existing bikes bike. Sales jumped sixty five percent in twenty twenty over the previous year. According to data from market research firm and pd group that came on top of a host of pandemic related supply chain issues for bike manufacturers in chicago that translated into long waits for maintenance last summer and an almost total scarcity of new bucks last year. People were like. Oh yeah this must be really great for you. Well yeah the demand is great but the demand has to be coupled with dependable. Supply have demand and there's no supply and you're spending a lot of time explaining to people why you don't have what you don't have bike shop owners in chicago. Say they've been able to at least partially restock and catch their breath. After last year's by boom but because of uncertainty in the markets there may be another shortage this year. We can't order anymore vice for twenty twenty one Whatever we're getting in Now is what we're getting And they've all they've actually started looking at twenty twenty two.

"How does that Affect getting the vaccine out as quickly as you say as needed. So i think in most of the public health responses that was part of the chicago department of public health large national efforts were best when they were coordinated at the federal state and local levels. We know that state and local governments are really playing critical roles but it also requires federal oversight to provide that kind of coordination to make sure that the states and moguls of need more vaccine. Get the vaccine. Those who are who need help and other ways technical assistance or manpower that they get those resources while so it's this federal state and local coordination. That's really essential. But i'm seeing play out with. The current administration is that there is more of that coordination. that's happening. Federal government is stepping in to provide a digital resources to pharmacies. They're also providing additional services to community health centers so this coordination is starting to happen. And i think we'll see improved distribution of vaccine as a result in dr. Maria got about thirty seconds left. But what do you say to the idea that it shouldn't matter who is getting the vaccine. So long as people are getting the vaccine. Doesn't that mean more. People are getting vaccinated and starting to lower our rates. I don't think it's an either or we can definitely administer vaccines quickly do it. Equitably and now that resources are flowing from the federal government it can actually happen quickly as well as equitably. That's what's really important. Dr julia morita. Thank you for joining us. It was good to see you again. All the best picture back with more chicago tonight. Latino voices right after this. Television is brighter and more lifelike than ever today. So it's easy to forget that those screens used to be tiny grey grainy and an absolute marvel of technology for their time a little known chicago.

Launching humboldt park is focused on developing neighborhoods economy while retaining. Its puerto rican culture chicago tonight. Producer quinn myers joins us now with more on the makoto del pueblo quinn. That's right brandon. So chicago's puerto rican community has long been centered in humboldt park but in recent years as high rents and luxury developments have encroached on the neighborhood's borders fears of gentrification and displacement have grown and in some cases become reality so now as a new public market in the community opens. They are hoping to help change. That is taken in here. Squashed for the last few years. Luis colosio has been handcrafting. He burrito presses these wooden contraptions designed to flatten plantations for he burritos a puerto rican sandwich invented here in chicago. Nobody really had something to make a wish. We all had to go out or they break a bunch of plates. China may go but you blocks or something. Eventually my wife asked me to make maker something koya. So is now one of more than a dozen small businesses operating out of a new space called mercado del pueblo on peseos equa- or division street in humble park.

"I wanted to show everybody that you know, the level of competition thing can be answered and have fun. You get tired of people saying that you're tired of people with the level of competition stuff. You get tired of people that you try to come after you with that one. Because I mean, now you now you've done it. But, you know, before the Senior Bowl weekend, guys like, Well, I mean, yes, guys tossing guys around, but that that guy's tossing around there's gonna be a dentist. And you know, in three weeks is did you get tired of doing that? And now that you've got the senior bowl tape, can you just kind of throw that out there and say, Well, you know, I've acquitted myself. It felt so good after that first practice to be lto. You know, really check that box. But in my opinion, it's never good enough. And I understand that. So that's why one got the next couple of practices and just keep solidifying that question that people have held against me. Yes, it definitely did get, you know a little bit redundant to constantly hear that, But I understood that, you know, it's a valid thing to say. So it was often the billable too. No answer that question. Who's the toughest guy you went up against? Out there? Out to the compass. The toughest defensive lineman was definitely the U. S. U C L, A defensive tackle. I liked your matchups with Levi owes a rake A out of Washington on day one. He only got the one day of practice. But you guys had some one on ones there and that that looked like a pretty fierce match. If you remember those Yeah. A lot of those defensive tackles. You challenge me very quickly, You know, at center. And that was something I learned quick. I learned, you know, through playing the position to the first couple snaps to really anticipates that Count Morse that way I can use The knowledge of the staff down to my to my advantage that we are able to reach them. Because that center when I'm trying to reach a shade pretty. They're almost kind of at a disadvantage of being able to take event of the snap count was a huge, huge part of being able to win those blocks. Last one here for you, Quinn really appreciate the time And obviously we had a lot of fun watching you practice this last week out there and mobile.

Like I like I said, originally control what you can control and right now what I can control is how hard I work out every single day so that In a common theme, so that's the easiest part for me. You know, it comes like pro days and stuff like that. I know because of how special the year it is. My agent will be, you know.

"At around the holiday they got up to about fifty percent so people are finding their way back But it's been tough. Most of the stores on state street remain open and museums are expected to follow suit in the coming weeks but the loop ecosystem where one industry success or failure feeds right into another is still struggling. Nobody thinks the loop can fail right. It's so big. It's filled with big corporations with lots of people. Lots of money for what really makes downtown. Go in many ways is the storefront economy and so the store standing behind you you know is suffering because there's not a lot of people down here so our job is to bring more people down like pretty much. Everyone during the pandemic businesses in the loop have had to reimagine how they operate especially as foot traffic once the main selling points of being downtown has slowed to a crawl that includes the goodman theatre which has pivoted to virtual offerings during the pandemic like a recent production of the christmas carol but those activities are divorced from the downtown economy. The goodman is or was a part of we produce christmas carol online. I mentioned how successful that was. That doesn't generate any revenue for petterino's next door. You know when we come back. That's the type of collaborative approach. I think we're gonna have to find if we're going to be able to come back. Successfully managing director john collins is also the chair of the league of chicago theaters and says while it's too soon to put a hard date on reopening he's optimistic.

"Shamefully. They need our help. This is a one billion dollar tax increase. Everybody needs to wake up. This is a tax increase on small businesses but governor and other backers of this that they have to be some tough choices made right now in this point. Illuminate cannot afford to give additional tax breaks to business when we're talking about taxing businesses out of existence that's a bit of an overage h me and i'll take to the bill The bill this is a this is a deficit increase if we don't pass bets decisions in the hundred second general assembly are not going to be easy. This makes balancing the budget much more palatable circumstance for our constituents but it was not just republicans who were not on board. Democrats have more than enough members to be able to pass any bill without even legal. Gop vote and that decoupling plan. Well it did not have enough support to pass. It was among many measures. That didn't get their way to governor. Gb printers either for lack of support or for lack of time and now includes for example in elected school board for chicago public schools anything to do with essex and also something that would have allowed the general assembly to not have to go for such a long stretch without needing again.

This park for abolitionist frederick. Douglass the village leadership academy students afro futurist because right before the pandemic we went to hearing For them to talk about it and there was like no they they weren't receptive to it at all and they have been there a number of times but seeing everything that happened after the death of george floyd and the response in the cities all over the country and then to see the change it would like it was really emotional for me to to watch that last hearing now that last hearing referring tubes in july when the chicago park district board unanimously. Agreed to change. The park's name after that year's long effort led by students and the community power says because the signs reflecting the parks name-change were just.

When it comes to mid West Beer. Brewing Chicago tends to get overshadowed by neighbors like Saint Louis and the walkie, but the production, and of course consumption of beer has always been a vital part of the city's economic and social life, and now the revival of popular Chicago beer aims to prove that Chicago tonight producer Quinn Myers has more on the old and now new Conrad Sipe Brewing Company. For more than a decade, the former Michael Reese Hospital site and nearby truck lot have sat in limbo, waiting for possible revival as a mixed use, development, or maybe the future Chicago Casino, but before all of that the Brownsville plot was home to the Conrad's Sipe Brewing Company at one time, the largest brewer in the United States in the eighteen seventies believe it was the end of the eighteen seventies. He was the number one beer producer in America. And I think the numbers have been shown to be upwards of two hundred and fifty thousand barrels of beer. Per Year by the end of the nineteenth century, which for anyone who Bruce Beer? That's a lot of beer. Lauren Mack is the great great great. That's three grades. Granddaughter of Conrad Sipe Himself a German immigrant who came to Chicago in the eighteen fifties over the next few decades he would turn out German style beers for thirsty chicagoans and people across the country growing his business exponentially. Max says safe success. In the late nineteenth century came from a combination of hard work, ingenuity, and some good luck sipe was one of the few breweries that did not burn down. During the great fire of eighteen seventy one, it was outside of the fire line so certainly not good luck for the city that the so much of the city burned, but from the point of view of ruin capacity. He was able to keep brewing during a time when the city really needed beer to feed its workers and to keep the city. Quenched as they rebuilt, the brewery would eventually close in the early nineteen thirties, but a few years ago, Max started toying with an idea. What if she brought back? The Conrad Site Brewing Company? She had heard so much about it growing up, but had never been able to taste her family's beer. Through a connection at the Chicago bruisers. Mac linked up metropolitan brewing a northside craft brewery together. They've spent the past year. Reviving sites extra Pale pills ner one of the brand's top sellers now almost eight century since the brewery closed, chicagoans once again be able to SIP SIPE Speier. Metropolitan Owners Tracy and Doug hearst safer them working on these sites project made perfect sense for one thing they specialize in making German style lagers, and they were also attracted to local history. What I thought was really exciting about the project is Conrad sites descendant female descendant. Lauren Mack was heading up the project. Craft beer like a lot of industries in our culture. Doesn't really feature enough women so the fact that she was up. This project made it really exciting for me. There wasn't an exact recipe for the extra pale available, so they relied on hints from old notes and records bullied by Doug's extensive knowledge of broiling German lagers. There was not a lot of information about the recipes and so forth. So then I had to go back and look at pre pro so-called pre prohibition lager pills, nurse and we think about Miller and Budweiser today the beer that they making in many other breweries like them before prohibition was a little bit different, it was stronger. In flavor it had more hops in it but it's still used a corn or rice like they use today and eighty seven years after the original sites was shuttered, and after hearing about the beer for her whole life Mac finally was able to try to be able to taste something that he would have tasted to be able to bring back something from history that he created. It was just a very poignant moment for me. I feel very lucky that that I get to hold that memory and I.
