CHICAGO MIDWAY AIRPORT HISTORY AND AREA
Note This is a standing article about the history and the benefits of using Midway Airport for news, views,and politics of the area please scroll past feature article

Chicago's Mayor Richard M Daley announced on 3/4/06 that the city is considering privatizing its 2nd airport, Midway, which is a major hub used by thousands of midwesterners because of its convenience to the city and public access including public transport.

For example by using Chicago's famous "el" system a quick trip using the Blue subway line at the O'Hare Airport terminal transfering at the Illinois Thompson building in the "Loop" walking up to the L platform and taking the Orange line your only 20 minutes away zipping past all sorts of traffic delays and in Midways terminal building. Unfortunately at this time the Orange line shuts down at 12am and reopens at 5am.

To support its expansion surrounding businesses participate in a TIF (tax incremental financing district). Most of the benficiaries lie along Cicero Avenue with a very much smaller benefit to the east or west of that artery.

It is that forgotten area within Midway's "propwash" we wish to serve. Promoting Midways use providing transit and other where to go where to get it information to the traveler who wish to use Midway as well as essential information to those who live in that area.

If one wonders why the Chicago mayor announced his consideration of "privatizing" Midway Airport we submit cost of expansion and improvement is the result of the following episode the reason..
ACCORDING TO A BILL INTRODUCED by Sen Frank J Lautenberg D NJ SIGNED DEC 05 -280 AIRPORTS INCLUDING MIDWAY MUST COMPLY WITH FAA REQUIREMNTS 1000' SAFETY EXTENSION BY 2015

On December 8th 2005 a Southwest 737 airliner unable to reverse its thrusters and stop while landing, overshot the end of snow covered runway 31 at Chicago's Midway Airport. It crashed through a sonic (designed to muffle jet engine noise ) fence then onto the adjacent street (55th- Garfield) carreening into street traffic where wide eyed terrified motorists watched helplessly as the huge craft slid slowly sideways towards them. 11 were injured and one of the vehicles carrying a 9 year old boy was crushed by the crafts under carriage and later died

For the 2nd time that location, 55th & Central has had an incomming aircraft accident with loss of life. 40 or so years ago an incomming prop driven United aircraft clipped a gas station sign and crashed in airport confines with a large loss of life.

In the Southwest 737 airliners case the plane was comming in from the opposite direction and according to early testimony the pilot had difficulty engaging its reverse thrusters in time to stop on the snow covered runway.

Later reports indicated possible pilot error with the plane touching down beyond the prescribed runway touchdown point where brakes are applied and its reverse thrusters deployed. FAA officals said that the investigation of the accidents cause will take about a year.

Users of that airline should bear in mind the plane landed safely no passengers injured. Despite not meeting the 1000 foot FAA buffer (runway extension) requirements Midway has had a remarkable safety record. That 1000 foot required buffer according to NBC consultant *Jim Tillman former Chicago Ch 5 weatherman and airline pilot is composed of crushed concrete and not a paved surface To install it would require not only demolition of recently built homes but rerouting of railroad tracks and two or more major arterial streets.

Bounded by Cicero Avenue on the east, Central Avenue on the west, 63rd street on the south, and 55th street on the north. Midway Airport was once upon a time a golf course.

The square mile Chicago Municipal Airport was built in the 1920's,and the adjacent finger of land approximently 4 miles by 3 miles area bounded by Harlem Avenue on the west, Cicero avenue on the east, 51st street on the north, and 65th street on the south, was incorporated into the city.

That included the communities of Clearing and Garfield Ridge. Garfield Ridge begins at 51st st and divides at 59th street by railroad tracks from the village of Clearing, which ends at 65th st .

Clearing was established as a Village and named after a proposed stockyards which never happend. Garfield Ridge was called that because it lay on a ridge where 55th street (Garfield Boulevard) began wending its way east to Chicago and Lake Michigan. Both were areas of small tracts actually truck farms where produce from its fertile soil was sold to local stores and settled mainly by Dutch immigrants. Prior to and during WWII those small tracts played an important role in supplying the city with fresh produce.

After WWII Ridge and adjacent Clearing began to develop with by todays standards modest 5 and 6 room expandable bungalows set mostly on 30 X 150 foot lots.

For a time after the name change to Midway Airport (so named after a decisive WWII Pacific Ocean sea -air battle) Midway Airport was called "the worlds businest airport and it was with planes taking off and landing every three minutes.

By the 70's however with the advent of jet travel the airport fell into rapid decline almost misuse and was begining to look "seedy" .

It was then neighborhood groups got together and began to question authorities what would be done and the impact any proposed development would have on the homeowner. Those proposals ran from using the area for an educational facility (it was then owned by the Chicago Board of Education) to a large housing development, etc etc etc.

What residents of that 4 X 3 mile southwest finger of Chicago don't know is that there has always been plans to extend that airport to Mason Ave four blocks futhur west of its present location, Central Avenue. As editor of one of the publications in that area, Village View, this writer reported on much of the work fighting its expansion .

This fight was carried by two neighborhood (Clearing and Garfield Ridge) civic leagues led chiefly by Marius (Scotty) Gallagher president of the Garfield Ridge Civic League.

Gallagher a retired electrician from the Chicago Park district began to research the problems associated with the requirement of jet planes and as president of the Garfield Ridge civic league early on warned based on the type of aircraft offered to commercial carriers the airport was unsafe for the jets used at the time.

What changed was the type of aircraft now being used and techniques in driving them. Until now most of the discussion between authorities and the civic groups was about sound proofing with the larger O'Hare (Orchard Field) getting preferential treatment.

Now that an accident has happened it is inevitable something will be done if nothing else simply to protect the heavy investment, hundreds of millions, the city has made into its operation.

The question is what and how much of these neighborhoods will be destroyed.

When that happens much of what the residents knew as "Old Clearing" will be gone as well as sizable chunks of Garfield Ridge (more to follow).

WHY THE FED CASE AGAIST "BLAGO" MAY WIND UP WITH A NOT GUILTY VEDICT AND WHY WE THE GET THE BEST AND WORST POLITICIANS MONEY CAN BUY
If it weren't so entertainingly sad Because the Illinois House failed to pass a special election which the Illinois governor claims he supported for the senate seat left open with the Obama victory .It was not unexpected that the embattled Illinois governor would pick a successor to Obamas senate space a week after Obama declared his involved non involvement barely covered by MSM. "Blago"announced his selection of Roland Burris an ex Illinois Attorney General .

For on the same day (Dec 23rd) Obama denied non involvement in selecting a successor "Blago" was serenading Congressman Danny Davis who turned the offer down and in an interview conducted on AM WLS (Don Wade and Roma am show) by a guest host.

Davis first cited his refusal was based on satisfaction with his congressional seat, but when pressed hard by the host suggesting he was out of step with the ruling oligarchs indicated he might consider entering such a race later.

. Very likely Obama knew of it and so did the renouned prosecutor. One can only muse about their "bleeping" exchanges of information between their respective souces of information.

Too many of the uninitiated to politics believe that when candidates are "picked" they are "selected on Merit" by some blue ribbon panel to run for a political office. Where the similarity with realities begin is the first letter of the last word of that conjecture. The letter "M". Then followed by the letters o-n-e-y which according to spell check reads out as MONEY. Then get "endorsed" .

This does not mean there are other considerations. Some of which will be brought up during the Blagojevich impeachment proceedings in his defence and prosecution. Highlights of which will both be carried on Don Wade & Roma Blog and WIND AM560.

These are the political considerations required from a selected candidate.Beside the all important electability.
    Most funding goes to the party organization (or is suppose to and not in the pocket of a politician, usually a committeeman) used to run for that office including, organizational donations, precinct moneys, organizational expences which run the gamut from circulating petitions and campaign material to the renting of offices.
   Then there are the political committments and these can range from securing offices to supporters, or supporting a position held by supporters. It is in these areas which become grey and where politicians run into trouble.

In a criminal trial the prosecuter must demonstrate not only intent but committment. Impeachment is a political process, not a criminal trial, and sometimes political enemys emerge in quarters once thought "safe". Two Presidents, Johnson and Clinton, went through the process and both remained in office. The Illinois state constitution follows the US constitution when it comes to impeachment. After the house of representatives holds its proceedings the matter is then brought to the senate which conducts a trial but its not approached by the concept of innocent until proven.

PROLOG OF THOSE "PRINCE" PRACTICIONERS

Accused Illinois Governor Ron Blagojevich has decided to deflate the hopes of those in the inner circle of oligarchs by not obliging them with a resignation and silently steal away . Instead Blagojevich noisily announced he would not silently steal away and but fight, bleep, fight, bleep, fight those federal charges of corruption which may have an inconclusive case.

In a brief but breathless announcement made during a media dead zone late Friday afternoon on 12/18/08 Blagojevich breathlessly announced his innocence leaving no wind left to answer any questions.

In doing so "Blago" has graciously demonstrated his Democratic party loyalty by allowing president elect Obama the better media dead zone time slot, Christmas eve, to announce his involved non involvement in selecting a sucessor to his (Obama) vacant US senate seat. Because the Obama scheduled press conference would interfere with a scheduled $500,000 caviar and champaign party at the 40 $M estate where his family and members of "The Office of President Elect" are staying Obama had decided to move the involved non involvement statement earlier during Christmas week.

The Illinois governor was accused of besides shaking down institutions owed approved state funding by witholding those payments until campaign contributions were kicked back or other political considerations benefitting the governor were met and selling a major political office to the highest bidder.

The examples cited were; an approved funding owed Childrens Hospital where the Illinois governor was charged with witholding the payment until he received a sizable contribution to his campaign chest.

Another was a subsequent revelation by Bruce DuMont after "Blagos" arrest over DuMonts national Beyond The Beltway broadcast. DuMont, whos family played a key role in the early development of radio and television and at one time had their own TV network, spearheaded the establishment of The Chicago Museum of Television and Radio History

DuMont cited several conversations over years with "Blago" promising state financial assistance towards building conversion funding for Chicagos Radio and Television Broadcast Museum housed in the magnificent Chicago old main public library.

After years of stringing DuMont along,"Blago" backed down for political reasons . DuMont was told it was turned down because an underwriter for a low interest loan covering the buildings modifications until the state funds would kick in was a Republican political opponent. Causing its board now to consider selling the building and locating elsewhere.

The most noted accusation reported by the media is the charge the Illinois governor decided to sell the Senate seat vacancy created by the Barack Husein Obama victory to the top bidder. The scheme in which the top dollar donor rummored to be either Congressman, and Obama s campaign co-chair , *Jesse Jackson Jr, or Il Senate President Emil Jones were set to "vig" a reported $1 M going to "Blago" along with other considerations for his wife and himself. . An announcement was expected to be made in a matter of hours the next day.

It was then that Northern Illinois District US Prosecuter Patrick Fitzgerald made an early morning arrest holding a press conference in which Fitzgerald read from transcripts of wire taps the government secured.

Instead of waiting for money to change hands Fitzgeralds decision to arrest the Illinois governor may have been triggered by two developments. One was the announcement by the Chicago Tribune that Blagojevich was being investigated and "Blagos" subsequent announcement that if anyone wire taps him they would find nothing. Suggesting perhaps "Blago" was tipped off.

Beside enumerating suspects approached to pay off the governor for the senate seat appointment one through six. Fitzgerald skewered his rescitation with redacts of obscenities which the respected US Prosecuter refered to ss "bleeping".

This development has created a furror with Illinois Democrats calling for a special election led by Sr US Senator Dick Durbin who besides wanting to prevent the reform minded maverick Lt Governor, Patrick Quinn, who succeeds "Blago" as governor from naming any successor which may not be approved by the Democratic power circle. The separate election move is also supported by pro-choice quasi conservative Republican Il senate minority leader Christine Radogno in which Lake county Il US Congressman Mark Kirk intends to run.

Blago solved all this speculation by following his constituional powers legally appointing 71 year old former state comptroller and attorney gweneral Roland Burris to fill this position.

But his decision is being contested by party insiders close to the incomming Obama administration Including Sr.US Senator Dick Durban and Illinois Secretary Of State Jesse White who by the way was not included in the "black list". White has continued to refuse to "certify" the Burris selection despite the Illinois Supreme Court decision his "certification" by White is not an impediment to be "present in the US senate" space once held by Obama.

ITS GROUND HOG DAY ALL OVER AGAIN IN ILLINOIS

In the last half of the 20th century ( 1950s) the following governors of Illinois have been convicted of malfeasance; Democrats ,William Stratton, Otto Kerner, Daniel Walker,and Republican, George Ryan.

As expected all of this "Blago" removal talk could become moot. For the processes to remove Ron Blagojevich from office the state attorney general Lisa Madigan initiated the charge with the state Supreme Court rule removal because of incompetentcy. As expected the state Supreme Court turned this away without comment.

Blagojevich while arrested for corruption still has not been indicted and his federal criminal proceedings have been rescheduled to April.

The Illinois house impeachment proceedings have concluded with the verdict of guilty as expected. But this still does not remove him from office.

The state senate trial begins on January 28th, 8 days after Obama gets sworn in on the 20th. It is expected the Illinois governor will mount a defence in the state senate trial while he did not appear at Illinois house empeachment proceedings. Very likely he will be found guilty but the reason Blagojevich is fighting this is he is looking at his criminal trial which he feels he can beat.For only a criminal trial and conviction would justify those Illinois house and senate actions.

Previously the Illinois Democratic Speaker of the House Michael Madigan had been dragging his feet moving the impeachment process forward reportedly because he favors his daughter Lisa Madigan, (also mentioned as a possible selection for Obamas space) the Illinois Attorney General to become governor, reluctant to allow the Lt Governor, Pat Quinn, to take over.

But if the muddied Blagojevich decides to declare himself as Obama s successor to the vacated US senate seat which he could do. It would fit in well in a mentally unbalanced plea which critics claim he is and leave the US Senate to their bleeping devices. But instead wisely picked Burris.

*Jesse Jackson Jr has been identified by ABC as candidate #5 and subsequently issued a denial of wrongdoing is to be questioned by Fitzgerald. While the Chicago Tribune reports Jackson's brother attended a a "Blago" $1M fund raiser sponsored by a real estate promoter friendly with "Blago and Jackson.

QUINN THE MAN THE MEDIA IGNORES

Patrick Quinn burst on the Illinois Democratic party scene initially as a reform advocate.(detractors refer to him as "populist") Promoting a state legislature reform organizing a petition effort which stopped the practice allowing state respresentatives of collecting their two year salary in advance. But in another effort pushed a "reform" which is still being questioned that had the unintended consequence of destroying the Republican party.

Illinois like most states has a House and Senate bi-cameral legislature. Where Illinois differed was that each Illinois House legislative district had three state representatives. Two from the majority party and one from the minority party.

These were elected through a process known as cumulative voting begun in 1870 .

In 1980 Quinn, citing the economic benefits of eliminating this unique experiment in democracy initiated the petition drive which was successful. With it the "weighted vote" in which a candidate in a political party could be assigned a proportional vote corresponding to the field of candidates representing a political party received the most votes in either category of two, majority, and minority, represented that district. With that change one party control was firmly established and local political opposition eliminated.

There has been a continuous effort to have this reinstated for while sounding expensive and cumbersome the benefits outweigh the resulting corruption from one party control.

When the subject of Quinn comes up within Republican circles that effort is remembered. Whether Republican members of the house and senate will be willing to work with him remains to be seen but ideologically they are closer to him than their opposite number in the legislature .

Likewise within the "entrenched Democrat politicians " he is mistrusted while rank and file democratic party members have complete faith in him.

Which is why Durbins call for a special election which would cost an estimated 35 million$ has been interpreted to by-pass any Quinn appointment which Quinn has ignored maintaining that authority remain within the governors perview. On December 3rd 2008 a special phone conversation reported as "taped" was to have taken place. . On one end was US senate majority leader Democrat Harry Reid on the other end was Illinois governor Democrat Rod Blagojevich. The publication reporting it during the Xmas-New Years holiday week was the Chicago Sun Times.

The topic of conversation ? The right kind of Democrat which would present the best image of the party to plop into the space in the US senate once taken up by Barrack Hussein Obama the junior US Senator from Illinois who won the 2008 US presidential election

It is not clear if the decisions for the selections came solely as an initiative from the Democratic party majority leader or that he was paying deferential respect relating those choices from on high. For it was a very peculiar selection. Because every black suitable candidate was eliminated but instead went to two females neither of which were black.

The date which this reported (weeks after the Blagojevich arrest) "taped" conversation took place is of interest because The Chicago Sun Times attributed their source as Blagojevich. Interestingly a scant week later The Chicago Tribune reported the federal charges of corruption-arrest of the Illinois governor arrived at specifically through information generated by federal wire taps of the governors campaign phone lines .

One of those black candidates Roland Burris was not mentioned in the initial conversation which included; Congressmen, Danny Davis, and Jesse Jackson Jr., and former IL Senate Pro Tem Emil Jones. But in a subsequent conversation Mr Burris was included in the suggested deletions.

Its been reported that those senators wishing to investigate orign charges of racism Senator Cornyn may find that tape elswhere.

As expected Burris (1/15/09) was installed and the bruhaha about the selection of a candidate other than another "brother" goes neatly buried.

KEEPING UP APPEARANCES

As expected Burris (1/15/09) was installed and the bruhaha about the selection of a candidate other than another "brother" goes neatly buried.

Before they were called RINOS Col McCormack the very conservative publisher of the Chicago Tribune during the Rosevelt era would rail against liberal Republican candidates for office offering slight variances in political policy than their Democrat opponent "Me Too Republicans" which wound up being number two election time.

For instead of raising the issue the local Republican "Me Two-ers" in the state are following up the issue brought up the Democratic Oligarchs by beating up on Burris instead of pointing out Burris or any of the "Brothers" were not favored to take that seat if the OBs had their way. The question is did Danny Davis tell his constituents of this when he loaded up those 10 busses to wittness Obama's coronation.

The question is, there is a black conservative commuinity which the Illinois Me Two-s refuse to admit exists. Conservatives all share the same values. If they (Me Toos) are really conservative ?

While the MSM and the political forces may treat this as designed by the powers that be is in their political (and financial interest). Because its it in their interest to do so. Is not it about time we stop separatimg ourselves. Perhaps we should join to together and say-- Hey !--When we apply for a passport it does not describe any thing but one word... American Citizen.. We can think for ourselves. Its for you and I to raise our flag because that is what it stands for....All of US.

The agency used to issue Illinois drivers licenses,profit and non profit incorporation and in charge of many state buildings is once again in the headlines for corruption with Fed charges which may implicate Jesse White Illinois Secretary of State. Apparently White had a publicist paid by ISS $72,000 a year to write his biography and an employee gets a 300% from $36,000 to $120,000 pay raise, (reportedly his daughter) .

In an exclusive article in Consumer htm the US Mat tells of a Wisconsin resident erroneously entered as an Illinois resident in a Wisconsin DUI case in 1987 and the problems encountered trying to get but unable to get a drivers license because it was stuck in the reciprocity matrix.

During the White administration after sending several letters to the ISS LaSalle street hearing office in Chicago explaining the person was a legal Wisconsin resident and not a Illinois resident which went ignored. A registered receipt required letter was sent explaining the situation only to have someone at that ISS office refuse the letter and returned, which The US Mat has .

The article also details the problems out of state lawyers have with dealing with the Illinois Secretary of State in clearing reciprocal DUI cases with ISS insisting the out of state alcohol programs do not meet ISS standards.

One reason why the ISS does this the article suggests is that those "classes" are administered by political contributers to the Illinois Secretary of State. Wether or not this is the case in any event "specialists" are required to deal with the reciprocal problems when dealing with ISS.

Anybody Remember the Cook County
Board President Race of 1990
   And the flap between between Judge Eugene Pincham,Angelo DeAngelis, and Mr.Phelan? Here is the way staff political cartoonist Moses saw it



Angelo DeAngelis was a respected Republican state senator from the south suburbs of Chicago making a serious attempt at being the first Republican president of the Cook County board since Richard Ogilvie 30 years before.He soon found that drawing democratic party blood between two party stalwarts Mr Phelan, running for the office and Judge Eugene Pincham, who had a great following in the black community doesn't happen.Whether Pincham ever collected his "marker"(ie political IOU)(another Chicago political myth)is not clear.For the Chicago river is filled with "political markers"especially the south fork known as "Bubbly Creek"  Pincham is arising from a "magic lamp"(an obvious play on his first name)  which is not shown which was rubbed the wrong way.

Using Shaw's own words taken from his TV cast. Wade demonstrated how Shaw, who did not bring up Hyde's past record or future plans, instead used the ocassion to attack Republicans for impeaching ex President Clinton suggesting it was a without merit political vendeta. Clinton was found guilty of obstruction of justice, and lying under oath. Included in his playback of Shaw's TV interview with Hyde, were factually fabricated statements by Shaw which were debunked by Wade.
