Where's the Money?
- The feds want the Chicago Public Schools to repay at least $16.8 million in federal money earmarked for poor schools because CPS failed to fully staff those schools.
- State education officials have appealed, asking to pay just $1.6 million. They say CPS tried to find applicants but there were few takers.
The other incident involves the continued shenanigans of former aldercreature Troutman:
The alderman who took over indicted former Ald. Arenda Troutman's landmarks committee accused her Wednesday of mysteriously draining the panel's budget before she left office in May.
Ald. Anthony Beale (9th) said he was amazed when he became chairman of the Committee on Historical Landmark Preservation to learn only $30,000 was left in the committee's $110,000 budget for 2007
