Expect more barricades, security checks at Lollapalooza: city
Security will be top of mind when Lollapalooza gates open 11 a.m. Thursday, just weeks after a truck rampage through a Bastille Day celebration in Nice, France, and a club shooting in Orlando that left 49 people dead. City officials say they will intensify checks of festivalgoers and install more blockades this year.

The National Transportation Safety Board report said the plane — a 1964 model Piper PA 30 Twin Comanche — hit the ground at a nearly vertical angle when it crashed.
A plane that crashed in Joliet last week, killing the pilot and setting a house on fire, nosedived into the ground after leaving a trail of debris for about a mile, according to a preliminary federal report.

Blagojevich to appear at resentencing via closed-circuit TV from prison
Former Gov. Rod Blagojevich will appear in a Chicago courtroom via a closed-circuit television feed when he is resentenced in two weeks, instead of being brought from federal prison in suburban Denver, where he's been serving a 14-year sentence.

By +Jason Meisner 
It's been six years since former Gov. Rod Blagojevich had his bizarre turn on Donald Trump's show "Celebrity Apprentice" while awaiting trial on sweeping corruption charges. Now, Blagojevich is about to be on TV once again — albeit under much different circumstances.

Did Bill Clinton take a sly dig at Cubs fans during DNC speech?
“And for the people from Illinois here, they (Hillary’s family) even told me what ‘waiting for next year’ meant. Could be next year, guys,” Bill Clinton said.

Did he mean this year could be that long-awaited “next” year for the Cubs, or was he saying that 2016 would prove to be just another in a long line of fruitless seasons?

By +Joe Knowles 
Ever the clever orator and crowd-pleaser, Bill Clinton gave several states a shout-out during his speech Tuesday night at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. Naturally, Illinois – being the birthplace of his wife, presidential nominee Hillary Clinton – got a few mentions.
