Lightfoot blinks — sort of — on vaccine mandate

Chicago Sun-Times Morning Edition
Good morning, Chicago —
Here’s the latest news from around the area this morning.
The police union’s warning that Chicago will be forced to get by this weekend with only half its police force dissipated yesterday when Mayor Lori Lightfoot blinked — sort of. The mayor said she still plans to enforce the mandate, but no one will be sent home immediately as the city determines compliance.
Chicago City Clerk Anna Valencia, now running for Illinois Secretary of State, took two campaign contributions this year from a Bridgeport trucking executive with ties to a government mole involved in a federal investigation. Robert Herguth and Tim Novak have more, including comments from Valencia, who denies any personal connection to the man, William Pacella.
And why not start your Friday with a reminder about the power of love? Decades ago in school, Jeanne Gustavson, now 68, fell hard for Stephen Watts, 71. But her family didn’t approve because she’s white and he’s Black. They couldn’t make it work. Now, having come through marriages, divorces, retirement and serious health problems, they’re back together once more.
Get even more news below, and thanks for reading.
