Lightfoot pitches bigger, better Soldier Field to keep Bears in city

Chicago Sun-Times Morning Edition
Good morning, Chicago!
Here’s the latest news ahead of what should be a cloudy and potentially rainy Tuesday.
Mayor Lori Lightfoot, during a Zoom meeting with our Editorial Board focused on her 2022 budget, made it clear she’s taking seriously the Bears’ threat to leave the city. It’s a different tune from several months ago when Lightfoot cavalierly dismissed the team’s threat to move to Arlington Heights.
Meanwhile in the west suburbs, students and alumni of a Catholic school are calling on the administration to reinstate a girls’ lacrosse coach whose job offer was allegedly rescinded after officials learned she was married to another woman.
And at Dirksen Federal Courthouse, the lengthy racketeering trial of reputed street gang leader Labar “Bro Man” Spann began in earnest with prosecutors warning jurors they’ll soon learn about “the world of murder, extortion and drug dealing” on Chicago’s West Side.
Get all that news and more below.
