Here are Trump's mentions of Chicago with...
  2. Another convicted Chicago alderman is headed to prison.

  4. Javier Baez didn’t just hit a game-winning three-run home run in the eighth inning against the Mets at Wrigley Field on Sunday, he hit a raw nerve.

    The reporter,...

  8. The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to weigh in on whether the federal government was wrong to stop making certain payments to Land of Lincoln health insurance – which collapsed in 2016, leaving nearly 50,000 Illinois residents scrambling for coverage.

  10. While interviewing to become Oklahoma State’s basketball coach in 2016, Brad Underwood was presented with this scenario: You’re 250 yards from the pin. It’s all carry with water short of the green. Are you laying up or going for it?

    Going for it, Underwood replied.

    “Good,” responded Mike Holder,...

  11. Chicago police are asking for help identifying a man or boy who they say broke into a woman’s Irving Park home and tried to sexually assault her hours after she saw him at a grocery store.

  16. When marijuana dispensaries open their doors to recreational customers on Jan. 1, there won’t be jars of buds lined up on shelves or rolled joints under glass countertops.

    Instead, shopping at a dispensary likely will be a cross between a trip to the pharmacy and shopping at an Apple store. Some...

  17. The bizarre Jussie Smollett case takes yet another strange twist

    The prosecution of Jussie Smollett — a small-time felony case that has grown only more bizarre seemingly with each passing week — may have taken its strangest twist yet on Friday. In a blistering and somewhat unexpected ruling, a...

    And then Javy happened.

Three years later, fans still yearn for the...

  20. The last child welfare investigator who made contact with Andrew “AJ” Freund before the young Crystal Lake boy was allegedly killed by his parents is a local elected official with a history of workplace complaints and a recent suspension, according to documents reviewed by the Tribune.

  21. Chicago has long been characterized as the last line of defense in the war to prevent bighead and silver carp from reaching the Great Lakes. But as efforts ramp up, another little-discussed species of Asian carp is already spawning in the region and could become the first to be established.

    Illinois...

  22. A 21-year-old woman was sexually assaulted by a male she thought was her rideshare driver Saturday morning in the Lincoln Park community on the North Side.

  25. Javier Baez flailed at Jacob deGrom’s 1-2 slider, his second whiff of the game, and screamed at himself as he descended the steps to the Cubs dugout.

    He vented to teammate Pedro Strop about how deGrom had switched from throwing almost all fastballs to breaking balls.
