Chicago marks deadliest day by gunfire in more than a decade

It has been a deadly start to September in Chicago, with at least 13 people fatally shot over 36 hours across the city this week.

Nine of those killings occurred on Wednesday, including the apparent accidental shooting death of an 11-year-old boy. That appears to be the deadliest day in Chicago since July 5, 2003, when there were 10 homicides, according to a Tribune analysis of records kept by the Chicago Police Department.

Great America announces 4D 'dark coaster' as new ride

Great America officials ended weeks of social-media speculation about a major addition for next season with a predawn Thursday announcement about the ride, touting it as providing "the next generation of interactive thrills."
The Southwest Amphitheatre at Six Flags Great America , which opened in 1993 as the venue for a Batman-themed stunt show, has been reduced to rubble in recent days to clear space in 2016 for a modern-day twist on its DC Comics roots — an indoor, 4D "dark coaster" ride dubbed "Justice League: Battle for Metropolis."

The search by about 85 officers and three helicopters near Volo was called off after five hours and the woman, Kristin Kiefer, 30, was charged with disorderly conduct and falsifying a police report, according to the Lake County sheriff's office.

Saucey gives Chicago another alcohol-delivery service

Another alcohol-delivery service? Yup, because Chicago's "done really well with delivery-based services."
For those nights you just can’t peel yourself off the couch to grab a six-pack of A Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’, there’s a Jonas Brothers-approved alcohol delivery service in town.
