FOX Chicago News launches a new focus on Chicago neighborhoods & suburban communities

FOX Chicago News launches a new segment called "Road to Recovery" that focuses every Thursday on a different Chicago neighborhood or suburban community. The segment is broadcast at 9 PM.

Tonight's focus is on Beverly in Chicago, with reporter Darlene Hill. She appears on my radio show this morning at 8:30 am (WJJG 1530 AM Radio, or listen online at ... you can also join the Facebook Group on the weekly segment by clicking here.

I remember running in the Beverly-Ridge 10K Run with the late Mayor Mike Bilandic in 1978. It was my first full year on staff at the old and great Southtown Economist Newspaper and the race was big news in the Chicago Tribune that Bilandic was going to run in it. That was considered big news when Bilandic was mayor, until Jane Byrne, whom he fired, ran for mayor and beat him and the Chicago Machine -- before flip-flopping and embracing the Cabal of Evil Men she ran against.

Darlene Hill talks to people in Beverly and gives us some insight into what is happening out there in today's economy. Check it out!
