...and tonight I think it took TV reports to embarass the City to shut down part of the icy Drive for a little while and spread some salt out there...

I am awake. I had planned to go. Ironically, there's black ice out there and the weather guys are saying don't drive unless you HAVE to.

I wish Haymaker had had that choice a year ago. R.I.P.

Sad that a year later, nothing ever happened with unsafe cars (they're still being driven) no one lost so much as a days pay in S&S, and Mrs. Haymaker is still a Widow.

I think of the Sgt. whenever I go by that part of town. That tree should always have a blue ribbon on it.

It was a great turn out for memorial, thanks to our police family, our brothers and sisters of the CFD, the Bagpipes and Drums of the Emerald Society, Al's family, and all the others who braved the weather to come out at such an early hour. R.I.P sarge, it was a pleasure working for you..

At 4100 N. Marine Drive, at 0500 hrs., an impressive turnout given the time and weather stood in the rain/sleet to honor Sgt. Alan Haymaker. Members of the Chicago Police and Fire stood among the gathering of family and friends as the Pipes and Drums of the Chicago Police Dept. played their musical tributes. Fr. Tom and Rabbi Moshe, as usual, said all the right things on behalf of our departed brother, Alan Haymaker.
