The community is invited to enjoy a live ballet performance by students of the Boitsov Classical Ballet School, set for 1 to 2:30 p.m. Saturday, July 23 at the Clearing Branch Library, 6423 W. 63rd Place.
En route to my debut driving a school bus, I got psyched up listening to “Magic Bus” by The Who.
“I don’t want to cause no fuss,” Roger Daltrey sang, “but can I buy your magic bus?”
I didn’t have $100,000 to buy a new yellow school bus.
But it does feel magical driving a 38-foot, 18,400-pound rig.
Alas, I was not allowed to drive the bus on local streets. Something about needing a permit.
But I did drive around the bus lot at First Student, 8600 W. 67th St. Hodgkins.
Editor's note: The crime news reported by the Southwest Chicago Post---taken directly from Chicago Police Department incident reports---is not by any means an exhaustive catalogue of all crime reported in the Chicago Lawn (8th) District. For example, it typically does not include news of crimes committed in the eastern sectors of the district---because the Southwest Chicago Post's coverage area is primarily the neighborhoods that border Midway Airport and secondarily because including the relatively large volume of crime news from elsewhere in the district would be a logistical challenge. We make this note to offer a little helpful perspective and remind everyone that while crime is definitely a concern in all parts of the district (as it always has been), crime remains relatively low overall in the western section of the district. May all of us work together diligently to keep it that way. May all of us also remember that a person charged with a crime is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
