Chicago Tribune: Your source for Chicago breaking news, sports, business, entertainment, weather and traffic
  1. For decades, the Democratic Party has been haunted by a specter: the specter of John F. Kennedy and Robert F. Kennedy. Liberals have yearned for a young, handsome, eloquent and charismatic man to move them, enchant them and return them to Camelot.

    They’ve never quite found him, though Gary Hart...

  2. Attorneys who represent victims of sexual abuse by priests have released what they say is the most comprehensive list yet of Catholic clergy with ties to Illinois who have been accused of misconduct against children.

    The list includes about 400 priests and lay people who at one time served in parishes...

  3. A Vernon Hills man faces charges related to distributing marijuana while his brother has been charged with neglecting dogs following a recent home raid, police said.

    Prompted by an ongoing narcotics investigation by Mundelein police, a task force also involving Vernon Hills police and the Northern...

  4. Eloy Jimenez is finalizing a long-term contract with the White Sox, according to multiple reports.

    ESPN’s Jeff Passan reports that the six-year deal is for $43 million, setting a record for players already in a major-league organization with no service time.

    Passan also reports that Jimenez will...

  5. Weeks after a reconciliation with his wife appeared possible, Ald. Ricardo Munoz has again been barred from his family home by a Cook County judge who scheduled a trial for May on a domestic battery charge.

    The sudden turnabout came after the same judge had lifted restrictions last month on Munoz...

  6. C2E2 isn’t the only cosplay-bursting, multi-day pop culture-con in Chicago this year. Far from it. (In fact, in a few weeks, McCormick Place hosts the semi-regular, Lucasfilm-organized Star Wars Celebration, which will be way bigger.) C2E2, however, now in its 10th iteration, lands points for variety....

  7. If you’re old enough, you’ll remember the feel of an outing to the drive-in movie theater. The crunch of gravel as your car wheeled up to the speaker post. The heft of that speaker as you hung it on the door, the staticky audio that filled the car with the clarity of a CB radio transmission. People...

  8. A look at the new concession items that will be available at Guanateed Rate Field for White Sox games.

  9. Representatives of a large company have met with village engineers as part of a due diligence process leading to the possible purchase of the McDonald’s campus property in Oak Brook, Village President Gopal Lalmalani said Tuesday.

    Lalmalani stopped short of identifying the company interested in...

  10. Miller Lite is invading Bud Light’s “Dilly Dilly” medieval kingdom with two attack ads set to air during March Madness broadcasts.

    The latest salvo in the escalating Corn Syrup War is a mock behind-the scenes look at the Bud Light Super Bowl ads, where the costumed knights and crew crack open cans...

  11. Since Donald Trump became president, so many amazing things have happened, according to Donald Trump.

    But the thing I most appreciate is how he has, at long last, restored dignity to the office of the presidency.

    Why, just Wednesday morning, he responded to criticism from the husband of one of...

  12. R&B singer R. Kelly wants a Cook County judge’s permission to travel to Dubai next month to perform in concerts, arguing it would be “a hardship” on his children if he can’t make the trip because he needs the money to pay off child support, among other expenses.

    Kelly is barred from leaving Illinois...

  13. An 11-story office building proposed for a city parking lot in downtown Evanston will not move forward after the development on Monday did not garner the seven votes it needed from aldermen to break ground.

    Aldermen voted 5-4 on the plan, with those in support of the project saying it would bring...

  14. Congratulations to MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred, who has succeeded in his goal to speed up baseball beyond anyone’s wildest expectations.

    It’s not that the Mariners and A’s opened the season Wednesday night yet wrapped up a little after breakfast Wednesday here in Chicago.

    Everyone knows that’s...

  15. While Naperville City Council members Tuesday unanimously approved plans for the four-story Central Park Place development on Washington Street, Mayor Steve Chirico’s recusal from voting on the matter prompted discussion on what should be considered a conflict of interest.

    Chirico on Friday said...

    Check back often for updates.

    Third-string quarterback Tyler Bray re-signed on a one-year deal, the team announced.

    What it means: Bray did not...

  17. When Anthony Rizzo was mired in one of the most prolonged slumps of his otherwise successful career, the Cubs slugger admittedly was frustrated but wasn’t about to overall his swing.

    The trust Rizzo has in his swing — learning that panicking doesn’t help and a season doesn’t consist of only one...

  18. Nearly two weeks after a McHenry County sheriff’s deputy was fatally shot, a 39-year-old man charged in the death pleaded not guilty Wednesday to federal charges in U.S. District Court in Rockford.

    When U.S. District Judge Iain Johnston asked Floyd Brown, of Springfield, if he understood the charges...

  19. It happens every year, and it is one of the reasons the NCAA tournament is so great: Some obscure player from a team you perhaps have never heard of carries his team on his back into the upper reaches of the bracket, becoming a nationally known name for at least a couple of weeks.

    Here are a few...

  20. Metra on Wednesday announced plans to buy at least 200 new rail cars, which could help cut delays on the system.

    The commuter railroad is putting out a request for proposals for 200 to 400 cars that are compatible with its diesel locomotives. Currently, Metra has 848 diesel railcars, with an average...

  21. Authorities arrested two men on Tuesday on warrants — one who allegedly failed to register as a sex offender and was found in a home with a 9-year-old, and the other who was wanted for failing to appear on a charge of drug-induced homicide after cutting off his ankle bracelet.

    Daniel P. Pemrick,...

  22. Two Elgin residents died Wednesday morning when a vehicle struck theirs near Summit Street and Dundee Avenue, authorities said.

    At about 1:40 a.m. Wednesday, a 2018 Nissan Altima waited to exit a business located at Summit and Dundee. According to an Elgin police news release, a 2012 Honda sedan...

  23. In early February, I reported on Chicago’s boom of omakase-style restaurants (set-price, chef-created menu), visiting three, naming one (Kyoten) as clearly superior and mentioning, in passing, the long-awaited Mako, by chef B.K. Park.

    Wait no longer. Mako (731 W. Lake St.) opened quietly Friday.

    ...
  24. The funniest tweets of the past week presented in a click-poll for readers.
  25. When Amy Schumer asks her husband whether a dress looks bad on her, he tells her the truth — and she wouldn’t have it any other way.
