I Didn't Know Nuthin

The above title is one of the mayor's favorite phrases. For a notorious micromanager, the phrase is as laughable as it is ridiculous. Trib columnist John Kass dubbed it "fedheimer's disease" as it always seemed to be at it's most intense when questions were asked about FBI investigations that surfaced throughout the past few years.

Seems the mayor's lawyer is catching it, too:
  • On Wednesday, aldermen were buzzing about Georges' claim she didn't know City Hall's worst-kept secret: that the IGA was involved in hiring -- even for jobs supposed to be protected by the Shakman ban.

    The see-no-evil claim was not new for Georges.

  • Also Wednesday, city Corporation Counsel Mara Georges finished testimony but revised a critical element under defense questioning.

    On Tuesday, Georges said she was unaware of allegations of irregularities in city hiring until the FBI raided IGA offices last year. But she grudgingly acknowledged she was aware of possible irregularities in the 2004 hiring of the 19-year-old son of a top union official for a city building inspector job.

    "Perhaps I was aware there was an allegation, yes," she said.

"Perhaps [she] was aware"? Perhaps? Perhaps she realizes the Feds might have her on tape admitting she knew a whole lot more than she's letting on? Sigh - the Revolution can't come fast enough. And for the cop/lawyer that keeps complaining about how he/she dislikes all the hate directed at lawyers? This is exactly why we hate them so. When the Revolution comes, we'll give you a ten minute head start and a fast horse just because you once wore blue - but only if we can find a horse.

Why immunity for Sheriff Sheahans kid to testify in theCity Hall corruption probe?

He should be one of the 1st pieces of shit to go to jail too!

He worked in personnel in the aviation department (a job for which he was uniquely qualified (sarcasim) I'll bet)making hiring decisions.

Can someone please explain how the TIF districts work? I thought that they are created within certain geographical areas to come up with money for improvements within that area. The theory behind it that with all the improvements that had been created will draw in additonal sources of revenue to pay off the project. I.E a TIF created dowtown for Billenuem park with the garage and additionally created revenue paying off the cost.

If this is true then how is the Chicago Public Schools coming up with a bit majority of their new school funding from TIF's when the schools the will build are in the ghetto? How are these areas going to create to taxes to pay off the cost of the building?

How do Greeks hold so many key jobs in various city departments, including exempt spots on the police department, relative to their small percentage of the population in the city? Only in a meritocracy would this occur.

Funeral Service is tonight



When you called Chester J. Jaskolka on the phone, you'd be treated to his usual greeting, "God speaking."

If he saw you walking down the street, he'd whistle so loud small children would instinctively clamp their hands over their ears.

If he greeted you as "meathead," you knew you were in good with the man everyone knew as just plain old Chester, lovingly referred to as the most wonderful, generous and loudest person you could ever meet.

Mr. Jaskolka, a retired Chicago Police lieutenant, succumbed to a nearly two-year battle with leukemia Monday morning at the University of Chicago Hospitals, leaving behind thousands of people he touched through his generosity and humor. He was 75.

Known for his imposing figure, huge hands, and raucous personality, Mr. Jaskolka was born on April 11, 1931, in a home for unwed mothers and eventually made his home at Visitation Parish, where he became an honorary Irishman under the guidance of Monsignor Dan Byrne and Father Stephen O'Donnell.

After he recuperated from getting kicked out of Quigley Seminary for -- putting it diplomatically -- borrowing some French exam questions, he graduated from St. Rita High School. He then spent four years in the Air Force, four years in the Chicago Forestry Department, and started his 39 years of service to the Chicago Police Department in 1957.

There he rose to rank of lieutenant, spending 18 years as the commanding officer of the Area 2 Youth Division, and earned the Police Superintendent's Award for Valor when he foiled a robbery attempt at a local eatery in December 1970.

Would outshine the pope



As the story goes, Mr. Jaskolka stopped by, along with partner Gerald McGarry, for a bite to eat when a masked man with a sawed-off shotgun burst in demanding money from the barkeep, sending everyone diving to the floor with a shot. Mr. Jaskolka and McGarry put seven bullets into the guy and further bolstered the "Chet Mystique."

"Everybody knew him. If he was standing next to the pope, people would say, 'Who's that with Chester?' " said longtime friend Jim Kilmartin. "He was a wonderful person. Oh, when you met him you'd probably hate him at first, but after about 20 minutes, you'd love him."

It was that way for the many students at Mount Carmel High School on the South Side who came to know him as a volunteer security guard.

During a recent ceremony to recognize Mr. Jaskolka as an honorary Mount Carmel alumnus -- the first in the school's history to receive the honor twice; the first time was in 1970 -- graduate Dan Healy recalled his second week as a freshman. Healy was sitting in the cafeteria when the biggest hand he ever saw reached over his shoulder and took half his sandwich. He asked a fellow student, "Who the hell is this guy?" The response was, "We're not sure, he's just here."

By just being there, Mr. Jaskolka mentored, harassed and generally kept in line countless Mount Carmel students who turned to him for "a handshake, a nod, words of encouragement or a few bucks," Healy said.

Notre Dame fanatic



In addition to being a Chicago fixture, Mr. Jaskolka was a world traveler. But despite his desire to see faraway lands, his favorite place to visit was South Bend, Ind., home of the University of Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

He didn't attend the school, but was an honorary member of the Notre Dame Monogram and Trunk Club and the Notre Dame 100 Club.

"He loved it, he would go to every game," said longtime friend Megan Cook. "He was absolutely crazy about it."

Many people were absolutely crazy about Mr. Jaskolka, who never married.

"He was just unbelievable," said Kilmartin. "For an orphan who had no family, the whole world was his family."

Visitation will be held today from noon until 9 p.m. at Thompson & Kuenster Funeral Home, 5570 W. 95th St. in Oak Lawn. A funeral mass will be held at 10 a.m. Thursday at Visitation Church, 843 W. Garfield Blvd.

She didn't know "Nuthin" my ass! That's why her brother went from being Patrol officer Georges to Lieutenant Georges in less than 12 years. I worked in the same unit as he did. He wasn't the smartest guy then or now. But he is the commanding officer of the Marine Unit. But hey he will get another promotion by the end of the year. Maybe Commander of the Legal Afairs Division. Ha, ha, ha.......

Described by the old timers I knew as:

1.) the old area 2 youth commander;
2.) a fanatic Notre Dame fan; and
3.) the original orphan, and somehow related by the adoption to the Burke family (Ed, Anne).

RIP Chester, you were a good neighbor.

Hey 6/15/2006 02:09:41 PM

Your thoughts would be funny, if they weren't so sad. No doubt you've been around for awhile. Did you start out like this? If not, when did it happen? Why did YOU let it happen? Oh no, that's right, THE JOB did it to you. If you are honestly that miserable, do yourself a favor and take a leave, maybe 6 months. Or better yet why don't you quit, cash out whatever you have in the pension and move to a little shack somewhere in Wyoming or Montana. Live off the land, get back to nature. You will live a lot longer. I couldn't imagine spending 8 hours in beat car with you, okay maybe 8 hours, but only once, I'll drive AND do the paper, but you're buying lunch.

And yes, I do love Chicago. I wouldn't want to live anywhere else. And (oh no...is he actually going to say it) I love being a Chicago Copper, 20 years and counting, wouldn't want to be on ANY other department.

Chicago officer cleared of drunken driving during visit
By Daphne Duret
Palm Beach Post Staff Writer
Wednesday, June 14, 2006
STUART — Jurors on Tuesday exonerated a Chicago police officer accused of drunken driving while visiting family last year after he said deputies arrested him unfairly.
Martin County sheriff's deputies arrested Albert Medina, 42, an 18-year veteran of the Chicago Police Department, near Indian Street and Willoughby Boulevard early Nov. 8. At issue during the trial was whether deputies gave Medina a chance to take a field sobriety test before they placed him under arrest.

Deputy George Primm said he thought Medina looked impaired and had warned him not to drive when he saw him in a parking lot near Charlie's Bar & Grill, where Medina and a cousin had spent the evening. Primm told jurors he pulled Medina over when he saw him driving erratically a few minutes later and that Medina refused to take a field sobriety test and clenched his muscles when he tried to place him in handcuffs.
"He was in a position where he looked like he was going to start a fight," Primm told jurors.
Defense attorney Gerald Roden argued that Primm never gave Medina adequate opportunity to perform the test, and Medina himself testified that he tensed his muscles to avoid being slammed onto a squad car.
"If I didn't tense up, my face would have probably landed on the hood," Medina said.
Roden pointed to a videotape showing Medina's refusal to submit to a breath test after he was arrested as a sign that he was not intoxicated or belligerent with deputies.

They don't even spell it the same way, Georgas and Georges;

Spiro is liked in TRU, his brother was loved, Lt. K is also well liked and is good to the p.os. LT. K just got married so your rumors are bullshit, jealous fucks

The tribute to Chester Jaskolka was beautiful: 10:56 could be the next Joseph Wambaugh. I am sorry I didn't know this guy, but I did know a few old time bosses like him, John Martin, Tom Faraguoi and a couple of others.

Are there any bosses like that these days. We need more of them.

The feds better hurry up and get Daley soon.

If a democrat gets elected president, this investigation will vanish.

I wouldn't worry about the Democrats. If you listen to the media the Democrats will rule the world soon. It's the same old shit they've been selling for the last 20 years. Once the Carl Rove machine starts up it's all over for them. If the dems try to have anyone killed it will be Carl Rove. They don't stand a chance as long as he is calling the shots for the Republicans (not that they arn't their own worst enemy).
The Dems are taking a big hit with the Hired Truck Scandal. The dems depended on these people to deliver the vote. Not just in Chicago, but Cook county, Illinois, Wisconson, Indiana. They would put these worms on buses and have them campaign in other states. It was campaigning paid for with everyones tax dollar. It was a beatiful system. It's being torn down as we speak.

Just so you know Spiro did not train in 010 he trained in 015 and yesI was there, so it's not a rumor. He's was not a bad guy while in 015 but I can't speak for now. And I was wondering the same thing about the spelling of the last names are they related or is it just more b.s. on this blog?
