CHICAGO NEIGHBORHOOD NEWS – PORTAGE PARK, LAKEVIEW, SOUTH LOOP, GOLD COAST, EVANSTON
Cathy Mallers PhotoPORTAGE PARK

This Friday don't miss the opening night of the Chicago Filipino American Film Festival at Portage Park Theater.  You can join the opening reception at 7pm, watch Manila Skies at 8pm and enjoy an after party at Dolce at 10:30pm.  If your schedule is busy, then be sure to take in one of the several films being viewed on Saturday or Sunday.

LAKEVIEW

The Center on Halsted has launched two semester-long culinary training and job readiness programs, one for youth and one for adults, this fall. What's Cookin' is for youth ages 15-22.  The Silver Fork Program will prepare adults for careers in the food service industry. Both programs are designed to provide participants with marketable skills and increased nutritional knowledge.

SOUTH LOOP

Asian Carp has been an ecological issue since its possible invasion of the Great Lakes became known.  Last week a new report was released by the Natural Resources Defense Council on potential ideas on how to control this destructive fish.  The main concern is balancing environmental concerns with commercial barges.  The debate is still in its infancy and is proving to be one that will continue to be on the minds of many.

GOLD COAST

For all you bikers, new bike lanes are being installed on Grand and Illinois Avenues which are the first east/west connectors between downtown Chicago and the Lakefront Trail.  Alderman Reilly has used his discretionary "menu fund" to pay for the bike lanes while working with the Chicago Department of Transportation.

EVANSTON

This Saturday, don't miss an opportunity to hear Bill Kurtis as he presents the keynote speech for Oakton Community College's "We Are Oakton: 40 Years of Inspired Teaching."  Utilizing his personal experience as a cattle rancher, the topic will be "Eating for the Earth."  In addition, the day will showcase eight of the college's full-time faculty who bring to the table a lot more than they teach at the college.
