ALL THAT AND MORE NEXT ON “CHICAGO TONIGHT.” [♪♪♪]>>THANK YOU FOR JOINING US I’M PARIS SCHUTZ. RENT CONTROL HAS BEEN BARRED IN ILLINOIS SINCE 1997 BUT IS ONCE AGAIN UNDER CONSIDERATION HERE. THE ILLINOIS LEGISLATURE IS WEIGHING WHETHER TO REPEAL THE BAN ON THE RENT CONTROL AND CALIFORNIA BECAME THE THIRD STATE TO PASS A RENT CONTROL LAW SO IS RENT CONTROL THE ANSWER TO CHICAGO’S AFFORDABLE HOUSING CRISIS? JOINING US WITH ANSWERS ARE JAWANZA MALONE OF THE LIFT THE BAN COALITION. AND MICHAEL MINI THE EXECUTIVE VICE-PRESIDENT OF CHICAGOLAND APARTMENT ASSOCIATION AND A FOUNDING MEMBER OF THE SUPPORTING HOUSING AFFORDABILITY PROGRESS AND EQUALITY OR SHAPE ILLINOIS COALITION. GENTLEMEN WELCOME TO “CHICAGO TONIGHT.”>>JAWANZA MALONE QUICK DEFINITION WHAT IS RENT CONTROL?>>RENT CONTROL MEANS THAT RENT IS REGULATED. THE INCREASES FOR RENT IS REGULATED FROM ONE YEAR TO THE NEXT.>>AND MICHAEL MINI, IS THIS SOMETHING THAT IS POSITIVE FOR THE RENTER?>>NO, IT’S NOT. RENT CONTROL IS COUNTERPRODUCTIVE, ECONOMISTS FROM ACROSS THE SPECTRUM HAVE AGREED THAT RENT CONTROL IS A COUNTERPRODUCTIVE POLICY. IT ACTUALLY RESULTS IN HIGHER RENTS. AND FEWER HOUSING OPTIONS. AND SO WE ARE VERY MUCH OPPOSED TO RENT CONTROL. WE THINK THERE ARE A LOT OF OTHER WAYS TO ADDRESS THE AFFORDABLE HOUSING CHALLENGE IN CHICAGO AND THE STATE OF ILLINOIS.>>JAWANZA MALONE YOUR GROUP IS IN FAVOR OF RENT CONTROL WHY DO YOU BELIEVE RENT CONTROL IS THE ANSWER TO AFFORDABLE HOUSING?>>IN 50 YEARS OF HAVING RENT CONTROL IN STATES ACROSS THE COUNTRY WE HAVE NOT SEEN ANY OF THE CATASTROPHES THAT THE ECONOMISTS THAT SAID THEY WILL HAPPEN. IF YOU LOOK AT THE ARGUMENTS FROM THE REALTY LOBBY NONE HAVE COME TRUE. THEY SIT AROUND AND CAMP FIRE AT NIGHT AND TELL SCARY STORIES WHAT RENT CONTROL WILL DO AND NEVER HAS COME TRUE.>>REMIND US WHY IN ILLINOIS SINCE 1997 RENT CONTROL IS PROHIBITED?>>THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY PASSED THE ACT WHICH BARRED LOCAL UNIT OF GOVERNMENT FROM ENACTING RENT CONTROL AND THAT HAS BEEN THE LAW SINCE THEN. THE LEADERS AT THAT TIME FELT THAT AND RECOGNIZED THAT RENT CONTROL WAS NOT A GOOD POLICY. AND ENACTED THAT. AND WE THINK THAT THE CURRENT GENERAL ASSEMBLY SHOULD KEEP THAT IN PLACE.>>AND THERE HAVE BEEN EFFORTS TO REPEAL THAT BAN ON RENT CONTROL. JAWANZA MALONE, YOU ARE SAYING THEY ARE SCARY STORIES PERPETRATED BY THE REAL ESTATE INDUSTRY MOST ECONOMISTS DO SAY THAT THE EFFECT COULD BE FEWER APARTMENTS BEING BUILT, MORE DEVELOPERS DECIDING TO TURN APARTMENTS INTO CONDOS BECAUSE OF THE CON TRANTS OF RENT CONTROL. WHAT IS YOUR REACTION?>>FIRST, I HAVE TO SAY THAT WHEN ILLINOIS PASSED THE BAN IN 1997, IT WAS PART OF A WAVE OF LEGISLATION PROMOTED BY THE AMERICAN LEGISLATIVE EXCHANGE COUNCIL IT WAS NOT ABOUT RENT CONTROL BEING BAD POLICY.>>A CONSERVATIVE LOBBYING GROUP.>>EXACTLY. THE SAME GROUP THAT PROMOTED STAND YOUR GROUND LAW. SO WHAT WE HAVE FOUND IS THAT AGAIN WHEN YOU LOOK AT HOW RENT CONTROL IS IMPLEMENTED IN PARTS OF NEW YORK, PARTS OF CALIFORNIA, WASHINGTON D.C., IT ALLOWS PEOPLE TO STAY IN THEIR HOMES. ONE OF THE MOST RECENT STUDIES OUT OF STANFORD UNIVERSITY AUTHORED IT, FOUND THAT RENT CONTROL ON AVERAGE ALLOWED PEOPLE TO STAY IN THEIR HOMES FOR 20 YEARS OR MORE. THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT WE NEED.>>MICHAEL MINI THERE ARE PLACES IN THE COUNTRY, CALIFORNIA, AND NEW YORK CITY HAS HAD IT FOR A WHILE. WHAT HAS BEEN THE EFFECT IN THE PLACES THAT HAVE HAD IT?>>NEW YORK CITY AND SAN FRANCISCO THE TWO MOST HIGH PROFILE LOCATIONS THAT HAVE RENT CONTROL ALSO ARE NOT HAVE THE HIGHEST RENTS IN THE COUNTRY. SO YOU LOOK BACK AT HISTORY AND MAKE THE CONCLUSION THAT RENT CONTROL HAS NOT WORKED IN THOSE MARKETS. IN SAN FRANCISCO IN PARTICULAR, THE STUDY CAME OUT IN 2017 THAT SHOWED THAT AGAIN AS WE MENTIONED BEFORE, IT ACTUALLY INCREASED RENTS FOR THOSE UNITS THAT WERE NOT RENT CONTROLLED 5% OVER AND ABOVE THE ACTUAL MARKET RATE.>>WHY DO YOU THINK CALIFORNIA PASSED THIS LAW STATE-WIDE?>>THAT IS A GOOD QUESTION. LAST NOVEMBER, THE VOTERS OF CALIFORNIA IN A STATE-WIDE REFERENDUM OVERWHELMINGLY CHOSE TO DEFEAT AN EXPANSION OF RENT CONTROL 60% TO 40%. WHY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY NOW HAS COME BACK AND ENACTED THE LEGISLATION, I THINK IT — THERE ARE POLITICS INVOLVED. CALIFORNIA IS A MUCH DIFFERENT STATE THAN ILLINOIS. IT HAS THE HIGHEST HOUSING PRICES IN THE NATION AND HAS FOR A LONGTIME AND AS A RESULT THEY ARE SHORT-SIGHTED ZONING POLICIES THAT HAVE GONE BACK A NUMBER OF YEARS. VERY, VERY POLICIES THAT DISCUMBERLAND COUNTY DENSITY AND OVER TIME — DENSITY AND IT’S LED TO A SHORTER HOUSING.>>MICHAEL IS NOT SAYING WHILE HE IS TALKING ABOUT THE THINGS THAT DON’T EXIST IS THE FACT THAT THE REALTY LOBBY HAS PUT A TON OF MONEY INTO POLITICS. AND WHAT WE’RE SEEING IS THE REALTY LOBBY HAS HAD A SIMILAR EFFECT AS THE GUN LOBBY BY THWARTING LEGISLATION THAT IS NEEDED FROM BEING ABLE TO MOVE FORWARD.>>THERE IS ALSO THE ARGUMENT, THOUGH, THAT RENT CONTROL COULD CAUSE OWNERS TO NEGLECT THEIR APARTMENTS BECAUSE OF THE FINANCIAL COULD BE FER CONSTRAINTS THEY WILL NOT MAKE THE NECESSARY UPGRADES AND THE CONDITIONS WILL NOT BE GREAT FOR THE TENANTS. WHAT ABOUT THAT?>>ANOTHER MYTH. WHEN WE LOOK AT THE HOUSING STOCK IN NEW YORK, SAN FRANCISCO, YOU WILL FIND THAT THE UNITS THAT ARE RENT CONTROLLED ARE ACTUALLY THE BEST MAINTAINED UNITS IN THE LOCALS. THE REASON WHY WE HAVE SUCH HIGH RENTS IN NEW YORK AND SAN FRANCISCO IS AGAIN AN EFFECT OF THE REALTY LOBBY BEING ABLE TO PUSHBACK AND LIMIT HOW MUCH — HOW MANY UNITS ARE REGULATED. IT IS THE DEREGULATED UNITS THAT HAVE THIS RENT GOUGING TAKING PLACE.>>THE WAY THE HOUSING MARKET WORKS, IF YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO MAINTAIN YOUR PROPERTY IN A SUCCESSFUL WAY, IT’S GOING TO CAUSE DEFERRED MAINTENANCE AND MANY OWNERS WILL HAVE TO WALK AWAY FROM THE PROPERTY OR AGAIN, AS YOU MENTIONED CONVERT THE USE.>>THAT IS NOT A RESULT OF RENT CONTROL WE HAVE PROPERTIES IN CHICAGO RIGHT NOW THAT WOULD BE CONSIDERED SLUMS AND THERE IS NO RENT CONTROL. IT’S BECAUSE OF PEOPLE TRYING TO EXTRACT AS MUCH WEALTH FROM THE PROPERTIES AND NOT REINVEST BUT THE LEGISLATION CALLS FOR MAINTENANCE AND UPKEEP.>>AND YOUR POSITIONS ARE CLEAR. SO IF YOU DON’T THINK RENT CONTROL IS A GOOD IDEA WHAT IS A BETTER POLICY APPROACH TO THE AFFORDABLE HOUSING CRUNCH?>>WE VIEW IT AS SUPPLY AND DEMAND. WE NEED TO BUILD MORE HOUSING LIKE THEY NEED TO IN CALIFORNIA AND OTHER MARKETS. AND WE ARE SUPPORTING LEGISLATION INTRODUCED IN SPRINGFIELD LAST YEAR. WE’RE HOPING WE CAN WORK ON THAT AND MOVE IT FORWARD THAT WOULD PROVIDE PROPERTY TAX INCENTIVES FOR DEVELOPERS TO BUILD NEW HOUSING AND FOR EXISTING OWNERS TO INVEST IN THEIR UNITS IF IF THEY AGREE TO OFFER THEM AT A AN AFFORDABLE RENT LEVEL THEY CAN ACHIEVE SOME PROPERTY TAX BENEFIT. AND IT IS IT WILL NOT CAUSE A SLIFT SHIFT LIKE — SHIFT WERE IT NOT FOR THIS LEGISLATION THOSE IMPROVEMENTS AND THE NEW DEVELOPMENT WOULD NOT OCCUR.>>WHAT ELSE IS BEING CONSIDERED IN SPRINGFIELD?>>WE HAVE THE TWO BILLS THE REPEAL AND THE STATE-WIDE IMPLEMENTATION. BUT I HAVE TO SAY, PARIS THERE IS NO WAY WE ARE GOING TO BUILD OUR WAY OUT OF THE PROBLEM. IF YOU LOOK AT THE DEFICIT IN AFFORDABLE HOUSING IT’S 180,000 UNITS IN CHICAGO. STATE-WIDE THAT NUMBER MULTIPLIES BY A FACTOR OF 20. THOSE NUMBER OF UNITS ARE NOT GOING TO BE BUILT. RENT CONTROL HAS BEEN FOUND THROUGH STUDIES OVER THREE YEARS TO BE THE MOST COST-EFFECTIVE AND IMMEDIATE WAY TO ADDRESS THIS CRISIS.>>WHAT WOULD THE STRUCTURE OF RENT CONTROL BE? WHO WOULD DECIDE WHAT THE LIMITS ARE EVERY YEAR?>>SURE. THE LEGISLATION CALLS FOR REPRESENTATIVE INCREASES TO BE TIED TO INFLATION. SO THE CONSUMER PRICE INDEX AS IN THEORY WAGES GO UP, THE RENTS SHOULD BE ABLE TO GO UP. THERE WOULD BE RENT CONTROL BOARDS TO PROVIDE OVERSIGHT TO MAKE SURE THAT THE AMOUNT THAT IS SET MAKES SURE THAT PEOPLE ARE NOT BEING DISPLACED AND ALLOWS FOR DEVELOPMENT. THEY WOULD HAVE AN EYE TO WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THE MARKET AND THIS WOULD BE OVER SIX REGIONS.>>THE LEGISLATION THAT JAWANZA MALONE IS REFERRING TO WE ARE MUCH OPPOSED TO THAT. AND IT WOULD CREATE ANOTHER LEVEL OF BUREAUCRACY. YOU WOULD HAVE AN ELECTED BOARD THAT IS THAT WOULD SET THE RENTS. YOU WOULD HAVE TO GO TO THAT ELECTED BOARD FOR APPROVAL TO MAKE IMPROVEMENTS ON YOUR PROPERTY. THERE IS A WHOLE.>>THAT IS NOT TRUE.>>THERE IS A LOT MORE TO WADE INTO AND I KNOW IT’S NOT GOING AWAY. JAWANZA MALONE AND MICHAEL MINI THANK YOU FOR YOUR VIEWS.>>AND THERE IS A RENT CONTROL TOWN HALL MEETING HOSTED THE BY THE LIFT THE BAN COALITION SUNDAY. YOU CAN GET THE INFORMATION ON OUR WEBSITE.>>HE HAS BEEN OUT OF PRISON FOR TWO YEARS BUT FORMER U.S. HOUSE SPEAKER DENNIS HASTERT IS WALKING BACK ON HIS ADMISSION OF ABUSING STUDENT ATHLETES YEARS AGO.>>BRANDIS FRIEDMAN HAS THAT.>>COURT RECORDS SAY HE TRIED TO RETRACT KEY ADMISSIONS HE MADE SEVERAL YEARS AGO. THE DOCUMENTS FILED BY ATTORNEYS FOR HASTERT’S ACCUSER IN A CIVIL CASE SAY IN A 2018 DEPOSITION HASTERT SAID HE DID NOT AGREE WITH HIS LEGAL TEAM WHEN THEY CRAFTED A STATEMENT ADMITTING HE MOLESTED A TEENAGER. HE TOLD ATTORNEYS HE WANTED TO STRUCTURE A PLEA AGREEMENT AND GET IT OVER WITH. THE NEWS REPORTED YESTERDAY IT WAS FOUND WHAT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A SEALED COURT FILING WHERE THE ACCUSER IS SUING FOR $2 MILLION IN HUSH MONEY THAT 77-YEAR-OLD HASTERT STILL OWES HIM.>>AND CHICAGO PUBLIC SCHOOLS IS FACING SCRUTINY FROM THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT OVER ITS HANDLING OF SEXUAL VIOLENCE CASES IN THE SCHOOLS. TODAY THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION DELIVERED A SCATHING REPORT REVEALING VIOLATIONS AND A SYSTEM IN A QUOTE STATE OF DISARRAY. CHICAGO PUBLIC SCHOOLS ENTERED A RESOLUTION AGREEMENT REQUIRING IT TO MAKE SIGNIFICANT CHANGES INCLUDING A SECOND INDEPENDENT REVIEW OF COMPLAINTS AND CHANGING OVERHAULING THE DISTRICT’S TITLE IX PROCEDURES. TITLE IX IS THE LAW TO PROTECT STUDENTS FROM ABUSE, HARASSMENT AND GENDER BASED DISCRIMINATION. JANICE JACKSON SAYS THE DISTRICT’S AGREEMENT BUILDS ON THE PLAN IT IMPLEMENTED LAST SUMMER. QUOTE… WE HAVE MORE ON OUR WEBSITE.>>AND THOUGH HE IS NO LONGER IN THE WHITE HOUSE, FORMER PRESS SECRETARY SEAN SPICER IS CAUSING CONTROVERSY RIGHT HERE ON THE CAP PUSS OF NORTHEASTERN ILLINOIS UNIVERSITY. HE WITH DEMOCRATIC POLITICAL STRATEGIC BRAZIL ARE DISCUSSING THE 2020 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION ON CAMPUS AS PART OF AN ONGOING LECTURE SERIES WHICH IN DISCLOSURE IS MODERATED BY PHIL PONCE TONIGHT. A GROUP OF STUDENTS, FACULTY, STAFF AND ALUMNI ARE PROTESTING OUTSIDE THE EVENT RIGHT NOW SAYING AS PRESIDENT TRUMP’S PRESS SECRETARY, SPICER PROMOTED POLICIES LIKE THE BORDER WALL AND IMMIGRATION BAN ON PEOPLE FROM MUSLIM COUNTRIES AND BANNING TRANSPEOPLE FROM SERVING IN THE MILITARY ALL POLICIES THAT TERRORIZED STUDENTS AND FAMILIES. AS FOR THE WEATHER SHOWERS AND STORMS LIKELY LATE TONIGHT. CLOUDY WITH A LOW AROUND 70. AND MORE CHANCE OF SHOWERS TOMORROW MORNING BUT CLOUDY SKIES ARE EXPECTED TO CLEAR UP THROUGHOUT THE DAY AND A HIGH NEAR 77. NOW, PARIS, BACK TO YOU.>>THANK YOU.>>THERE WAS AN IMPORTANT ELECTION BUT DON’T WORRY YOU DID NOT MISS A CHANCE TO VOTE. THE VOTERS WERE COOK COUNTY JUDGES THEY ELECTED A CHIEF JUDGE OF THE COOK COUNTY CIRCUIT COURT. AND AMANDA VINICKY WAS AT THE COURTHOUSE TO FIND OUT THE RESULTS. WHAT HAPPENED? THE TWO CANDIDATES WERE LONG TIME CHIEF JUDGE TIM AVERAGE OF EVANS HE HAS HELD THE POSITION SINCE 2001 AND LORENA POPES A FORMER TRIAL LAWYER AND HAS BEEN ON THE BENCH. 250 CIRCUIT COURT JUDGES SPENT THE AFTERNOON IN A PRIVATE MEETING. WE CANNOT HEAR WHAT WENT ON THERE. THEY HEARD FROM EACH OF THE CANDIDATES BEFORE THE JUMPS CAST SECRET BALLOTS. HERE IS WHAT EVANS SAID THIS AFTERNOON ABOUT HIS WIN.>>I LOOK FORWARD TO WORKING WITH OUR COLLEAGUES FOR ANOTHER THREE YEARS TO TRY TO IMPLEMENT SOME OF THE PLANS THAT WE HAVE FOR RESTORATIVE JUSTICE AND FOR MAKING CERTAIN THAT OUR SYSTEMS EMBRACE HEALING MORE THAN PUNISHMENT. THAT WE CAN MAKE EVEN THOSE WHO WERE SUPPORTING MY OPPONENT FEEL INCLUDED. PUT ASIDE ANY DIFFERENCES THAT MAY HAVE ARISEN DURING THE COURSE OF THE CAMPAIGN AND WE PULL TOGETHER AS A TEAM. TRYING OUR BEST TO RESOLVE CASES, FAIRLY EXPY JUDICIALLY AND TO MAKE THE PUBLIC KNOW WE WOULD RATHER HAVE THEM BRING THEIR DISPUTES TO THE COURT AND NOT ON THE STREET.>>EVANS DID WIN AND THE BREAKDOWN WAS 143-102. REPORTERS WERE OUTSIDE THIS PRIVATE MEETING. WE HEARD CLAPPING BUT DON’T KNOW WHAT WENT ON THAT LED TO THAT APPLAUSE. NOW, EVANS HAD BEEN AN ALLY OF FORMER MAYOR HAROLD WASHINGTON HIMSELF A FORMER ALDERMAN UNSEATED BY TONI PRECKWINKLE. WELL, THIS MAY HAVE BEEN TODAY THE FIRST TIME THAT ALL CIRCUIT COURT JUDGES WERE GATHERED TOGETHER BOTH EVANS AND APPROPRIATES PROPS HAD BEEN CAMPAIGNING UP TO IT. SHE VISITED JUDGES IN THEIR CHAMBERS AND LAYING OUT HER PLATFORM ON YouTube. WHAT IS WHAT SHE HAD TO SAY AND ONE OF THE VIDEOS. AND HER REACTION TO THE RESULTS.>>NOW IS THE TIME TO BREAK WITH THE PAST AND HAVE THE COURAGE TO SHAPE OUR OWN FUTURE. NOW, THERE IS BOLDNESS IN THIS PROPOSAL. INDEED IN OUR WHOLE CAMPAIGN. BUT WE HAVE MUCH AT STAKE AND WE NEED CHANGE NOW.>>I’M FOR CHANGE. JUDGE EVANS IS FOR THE SAME. AND HE’S BEEN DOING THINGS THE SAME WAY THEY HAVE BEEN DONE FOR 40 YEARS AND I’M FOR MAKING CHANGES. BUT WE HAVE A GREAT SYSTEM HERE. WE HAVE 250 JUDGES THAT HEARD EVERYTHING. I PUT OUT A NUMBER OF VIDEOS AND STATEMENTS AND POLICY STATEMENTS. AND THEY SAW IT AND THEY READ IT AND EVERYONE I THINK WORKED HARD TO MAKE A DECISION. AND THEY MADE A DECISION.>>WHAT WERE THE CAMPAIGN PROMISES SHE IS TALKING ABOUT?>>SHE HAD A LOT OF THEM. AND SHE WAS GOING TO BE SURE TO FOLLOW THROUGH ON THEM. AND SAID THAT THE JUDICIARY HAS COME UNDER SOME UNFAIR OUTSIDE SCRUTINY FROM WHAT SHE TERMS SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS, MEDIA INCLUDED IN CERTAIN WAYS SHE DID NOT IDENTIFY WHAT OUTLETS SHE WAS SPEAKING ABOUT. SHE SAID THEY WERE TRYING TO INFLUENCE FOR FINANCIAL AND POLITICAL REASONS THE OUTCOMES. ONE OF HER PLATFORMS WAS PROTECTING THE JUDICIARY OVERALL AND PARTICULARLY COMING UP IN 2020, THE JUDGES THAT WILL BE UP ON THE BALLOT FOR RETENTION. AND IN A POINTED CRITICISM OF EVANS, WANTED TO IMPLEMENT TERM LIMITS SAYING THAT 18 YEARS IS LONG ENOUGH FOR SOMEBODY TO BE THE CHIEF JUDGE. SHE WANTED THERE TO BE A LIMIT OF TWO TERMS THAT WOULD BE SIX YEARS. AND SAID PART OF THE PROBLEMS SHE BELIEVES THE COOK COUNTY COURT SYSTEM ARE EXPERIENCING ARE BECAUSE THERE IS BUREAUCRATIC RED TAPE. THERE HAS BEEN A COMPLACENCY IN THE CHIEF JUDGE’S OFFICE, CALLS ARE NOT BEING RETURNED, POLICIES NOT BROUGHT TO FRUITION. AND FURTHER, SHE TALKED ABOUT MEETING A PROFESSIONAL ADMINISTRATOR TO RUN THE COURTROOM THAT IS THE CASE IN MANY COURTROOMS DUPAGE COUNTY SAID THAT SHOULD BE THE GOAL HERE IN CUMBERLAND COUNTY AS WELL. NOW, AS WE HEARD, EVANS DOES SAY THAT HE HEARD PROPS AND THAT HE PLANS TO MEET WITH HER TO IMPLEMENT SOME OF THE CHANGES. NOW, ALSO COOK COUNTY JUDGES HAVE BEEN IN THE CROSSHAIRS IN THE ONGOING DEBATE OVER HOW CHICAGO CAN STEM GUN VIOLENCE. THE POLICE CHIEF AND MAYOR LORI LIGHTFOOT POINTED THEIR FINGERS SOME AT JUDGES WHO THEY HAVE SAID HAVE IN CASES BEEN TOO QUICK TO RELEASE OFFENDERS ACCUSED OF GUN CRIMES PUTTING THEM BACK ON THE STREET TOO QUICKLY. AND JUDGES MOVED WAY FROM REQUIRING DEFENDANTS TO POST CASH BOND. EVANS SAID THAT HE DID MEET WITH MAYOR LORI LIGHTFOOT AND REASSERTED HIS DECISION THAT PEOPLE RELEASED FROM JAIL ARE NOT CAUSING PROBLEMS ON THE STREET.>>AND I REALIZED THAT MAYBE WE’VE REACHED A POINT WHERE SHE IS WILLING TO LOOK AT MY STATISTICS AND I TOLD HER I WOULD BE HAPPY TO SEE WHAT INFORMATION THEY HAVE. OUR STATISTICS SHOW THAT ONLY 99% OF THE PEOPLE WE RELEASE ARE STILL DOING WELL. 99%. THAT IS MAGNIFICENT.>>AND THE GUN DEBATE STILL ONGOING BUT LIGHTFOOT SAID HER MEETING WITH JUDGE EVANS WAS PRODUCTIVE. AND SHE HAS KNOWN HIM A LONGTIME AND SAYS SHE IS CONFIDENT THAT THEY CAN BRIDGE THE DIVIDE.>>THE MAYOR AND COUNTY BOARD PRESIDENT TONI PRECKWINKLE DECIDED TO MEET, TOO.>>MEETING OF THE MINDS. THANK YOU.>>AND THERE IS MORE “CHICAGO TONIGHT” JUST AHEAD. SO PLEASE STAY WITH US.>>STILL TO COME ON CHICAGO CAN THE BEARS’ OFFENSE TURN THINGS AROUND? THEY HEAD TO DENVER WHERE THEY WILL BE GREETED BY A FAMILIAR FACE.>>10 CHICAGO HIGH SCHOOL BANDS ARE COMPETING AT THE CHICAGO FOOTBALL CLASSIC. WE INTRODUCE YOU TO TWO OF THE SCHOOLS COMPETING.>>AND MEET THE NEXT MUSIC DIRECTOR AT LYRIC OPERA OF CHICAGO.>>AND WE SIT DOWN WITH ONE OF THE STARS OF A COMEDY SERIES SET IN CHICAGO. AND A VISIT TO A MASTERPIECE OF MODERN ARCHITECTURE THE FARNSWORTH HOUSE OUTSIDE OF CHICAGO. FIRST TOMORROW OF TODAY’S TOP BUSINESS HEADLINES FROM CRAIN’S.>>PARIS, BOEING 787 DREAMLINERS ONCE PRAISED AS BEAUTIFUL BY PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP COULD BECOME A CASUALTY OF HIS TRADE WAR WITH CHINA. THE SPARRING BETWEEN THE TWO ECONOMIC SUPERPOWERS INJECTED NEW UNCERTAINTY INTO BOEING’S WIDE BODY PRODUCTION AND DELIVERIES. PARTICULARLY FOR JETS LIKE THE 787 DREAMLINER AND THE LARGER 777, THAT ARE POPULAR WITH CHINESE AIRLINES. SO SAYS BOEING’S C.E.O., WHO WARNS ANALYSTS A LACK OF A TRADE DEAL WITH CHINA ADDS RISK TO THE LONG-TERM PLANS TO MARKET THE WIDE BODIED JETS OVERSEAS. ARE GROUPON AND YELP LOOKING AT A DEAL IN THE “WALL STREET JOURNAL” HINTS IN A NEW REPORT. HOWEVER THE IDEA OF A MARRIAGE TURNED UP BEFORE. HERE IS THE BACK STORY. SHARES OF CHICAGO-BASED GROUPON CLIMBED 21% SINCE AN ACTIVE INVESTOR ROBERT CHAPMAN DISCLOSED IN AUGUST THAT HE BOUGHT A 1.5% STAKE IN THE COMPANY AND WANTED TO SEE A STOCK BUYBACK OR AN OUT RIGHT SALE OF GROUPON WHOSE STOCK HAS SAGGED. NOW CHAPMAN IS SIGNALING HE IS EXISTING HIS POSITION AND PEOPLE FAMILIAR WITH THE SITUATION SEE A LINK UP WITH YELP COULD BE IN PLAY.>>>AND FINALLY, STUDENT ENROLLMENT ACROSS THE THREE CAMPUS UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS SYSTEM SET A SEVENTH CONSECUTIVE RECORD THIS FALL. NOW DATA SHOWS THE UNIVERSITY WITH ALMOST 89,000 STUDENTS IN URBANA, CHAMPAGNE AND CHICAGO AND SPRINGFIELD AN INCREASE OF 3.8%. AND BASED ON THE MOST RECENT FIGURES, THE SYSTEM AS A WHOLE EXPECTS TO STAY ON PACE TO MEET THE FIVE-YEAR GOAL OF 93600 STUDENTS BY THE FALL OF 2021. FOR CRAIN’S CHICAGO BUSINESS AND CHICAGO BUSINESS.COM I’M ANN DWYER.>>IT’S JUST ONE GAME THAT IS WHAT THE BEARS HAVE BEEN TELLING FANS AFTER LAST WEEK’S OPENING NIGHT LOSS TO THE PACKERS. THIS WEEK IT’S THE DENVER BRONCOS AND THEY DO NOT IMPRESS TOO MANY THERE IS CONCERN THAT THEIR HEAD COACH VIC FANGIO MAY HAVE QUARTERBACK MITCH TRUBISKY’S NUMBER. JOINING US WITH A PREVIEW IS FORMER BEARS OFFENSIVE LINEMAN JAMES “BIG CAT” WILLIAMS. JAMES WELCOME BACK.>>THANK YOU.>>THE BEARS FACE THEIR DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR VIC FANGIO IS THERE ANYTHING TO THE NOTION THAT HE IS GOING TO KNOW THINGS ABOUT MITCH TRUBISKY AND NAGY THAT OTHERS WON’T BECAUSE HE SPENT SO MUCH TIME COACHING WITH THEM.>>HE IS GOING TO KNOW THINGS ABOUT EACH OF THEM. HE IS GOING TO KNOW A LITTLE BIT ABOUT MITCH TRUBISKY HE IS GOING TO KNOW ABOUT EACH OFFENSIVE PLAYER ON THE FIELD THAT WAS THERE LAST YEAR.>>AND DOES THAT GIVE HIM A MAJOR ADVANTAGE? AVMENT.>>IT GIVES HIM A LITTLE BIT OF AN ADVANTAGE BECAUSE HE MAY TELL VON MILLER HOW TO ATTACK MASSIE AND LENO, JR.>>THE OFFENSIVE LINEMAN.>>BUT HE IS GOING TO BE ABLE TO TELL THEM LITTLE THINGS GIVE THEM LITTLE HINTS AND THINGS THAT THEY CAN PICK UP ON TO HELP THEM IN THEIR GAME.>>HERE IS HOW MATT NAGY THE HEAD COACH OF THE BEARS ADDRESSED IT TODAY.>>EVERY PLAY IS GOING TO BE BRAND NEW. THAT IS WE’VE NEVER — WHEN YOU SEE THIS WEEKEND THERE IS NOT ONE PLAY THAT WE HAVE EVER DONE. GOING AGAINST VICK IS GOING TO BE THE SAME AS GOING AGAINST EVERY OTHER COORDINATOR. ONCE YOU GET INTO THE HEAT OF THE MOMENT AND YOU ARE GOING IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH VIC FANGIO AND US VERSUS VIC FANGIO.>>HE IS JOKING HE IS GOING TO PULL OUT PLAYS THAT VIC FANGIO HAS NEVER SEEN. WHAT DO YOU THINK THE OFFENSE HAS TO DO?>>YOU HAVE TO RUN THE BALL. AND THE ONE DRIVE THEY SCORED THEY WERE ABLE TO KICK THE FIELD GOAL THEY HAD GOOD RUNS. RUNS DON’T HAVE TO BE 15, 20-YARD RUNS. JUST THE CONSISTENCY OF BEING ABLE TO RUN THE BALL IS SOMETHING THAT THEY NEED. IF YOU CAN BREAK OFF FIVE, SIX YARDS OCCASIONALLY A POP, GET THAT OFFENSIVE LINE IN A MODE OF RUNNING THE BALL, STICKING TO THEIR BLOCKS THAT WILL HELP THEM OUT A LOT. IT WILL GIVE MITCH AN OPPORTUNITY TO SEE WHAT THE DEFENSE IS DOING.>>AND THE HEAD COACH NAGY AND MITCH TRUBISKY SEEM TO DROP BACK AND THROW THE BALL MORE THAN THEY RAN THE BALL. WHY?>>WELL, I THINK THAT IS NAGY’S STYLE. HE WANTS TO THROW THE BALL. HE WANTS TO GET IT OUT OF MITCH’S HANDS QUICK AND THEY HAVE A LOT OF PLAYMAKERS. YOU KNOW, IF YOU CAN GET THE BALL INTO HIS HANDS AND SPACE ANYTHING IS LIABLE TO HAPPEN. THEY WANT TO BE ABLE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE PLAYMAKERS THAT THEY HAVE AT THE SPECIALTY POSITIONS.>>AND IT WAS CLEAR I WAS AT THE GAME FANS WERE DISMAYED AT THE PERFORMANCE OF MITCH TRUBISKY. DO YOU SEE HIS PROBLEMS AS CORRECTABLE FROM ONE WEEK TO THE NEXT?>>YES, I THINK THEY HAVE THE ABLE IT I TO GET BETTER. AND IT WAS NOT ONLY MITCH THAT HAD A BAD GAME. THE OFFENSIVE LINE DID NOT PLAY WELL. THE RECEIVERS DROPPED TOO MANY PASSES. BACKS COMING OUT OF THE BACKFIELD DROPPING PASSES. YOU CANNOT HAVE THAT. THAT MAKES THE EASTBOUND TIRE TEAM — THE ENTIRE TEAM LOOK BAD. AND THE QUARTERBACK GETS THE BLAME HE GETS THE CREDIT WHEN THEY WIN AND HE GETS THE BLAME WHEN THEY LOSE.>>AND THE BRONCOS THEY HAVE SUPERSTAR DEFENSE VON MILLER WHO YOU ELUDED TO. HOW DO THE BEARS COUNTERACT HIM?>>IT’S NOT ONLY THE PLAYERS ON THE FIELD. WHAT COACHES DO AND HOW NAGY CALLS PLAYS IS HE ABLE TO CALL THREE-STEP DROPS TO ALLOW THOSE TACKLES TO GET ON THE OUTSIDE LINEBACKERS QUICK, TO GET THEIR HANDS DOWN AND GIVE THEM DIFFERENT PASS SETS. IF YOU ARE JUST CALLING FIVE AND SEVEN-STEP DROPS IT MAKES IT SO MUCH EASIER FOR THOSE GUYS TO TEE OFF ON THE TACKLES. AND THE SNAP COUNT IS GOING TO BE SOMETHING THAT IS GOING TO BE VERY KEY, TOO. BECAUSE ONCE THEY GET A RHYTHM FOR WHAT THE SNAP COUNT IS. IT’S OVER.>>HOPE THE COACH IS LISTENING. RUN THE BALL, GET THE BALL OUT OF THE QUARTERBACK’S HANDS. ON THE OTHER END, THE DEFENSE SEEMED TO PICK UP WHERE THEY LEFT OFF. DO YOU EXPECT THAT HIGH LEVEL PERFORMANCE TO CONTINUE?>>I DO. I DO. I THINK THE DEFENSE IS THEY ARE GOING TO CARRY THIS TEAM UNTIL THE OFFENSE GETS ITSELF TOGETHER UNTIL THEY FIND THEIR GROOVE. THIS DEFENSE IS AS ADVERTISED. THEIR FRONT SEVEN IS UNBELIEVABLE AND WITH THEIR ABILITY TO PUT PRESSURE ON A QUARTERBACK IT MAKES THE JOB FOR THE GUYS IN THE SECONDARY, IT MAKES THEIR JOB EASIER.>>DOES IT DEMORALIZE A DEFENSE WHEN YOU HAVE A AWESOME GAME BUT THE OFFENSE SCORES THREE POINTS?>>OVERTIME IT COULD BE SOMETHING THAT AFFECTS THAT LOCKER ROOM. YOU HEAR COACHES TALK ABOUT HIGH CHARACTER PLAYERS THAT THEY TRY AND BRING INTO THE LOCKER ROOMS. THESE ARE THE REASONS WHY. BECAUSE YOU DON’T WANT THAT ANIMOSITY. YOU DON’T WANT THAT SEPARATION BETWEEN OFFENSE AND DEFENSE. BUT SOMETIMES YOU HAVE A DEFENSE THAT HAS TO CARRY AN OFFENSE. AND IT’S UP TO THOSE GUYS TO STICK TOGETHER AND FIGURE OUT WAYS TO PRODUCE WINS.>>AND I REMEMBER IN 1995 YOUR BEARS TEAM IT WAS 9-7 IT WAS A GREAT OFFENSE AND NOT A GOOD DEFENSE AND IT WAS THE OTHER WAY AROUND.>>IT HAPPENS ONCE IN A WHILE EVEN HERE IN CHICAGO.>>THERE WERE A LOT OF PENALTIES IN THE FIRST GAME ARE YOU GOING TO JUMP ONBOARD WITH THE CRITICS THAT SAY THIS WAS A RESULT OF NOT HAVING STARTERS PLAY IN THE PRESEASON?>>NO. THIS IS PLAYERS HAVE TO POLICE THEMSELVES. ALL THE PENALTIES CALLED ARE CORRECTABLE. HOLDING CALLS, HANDS TO THE FACE, YOU KNOW, MITCH NOT GETTING A PLAY, THE DELAY OF GAME. A PASS INTERFERENCE BY A WIDE RECEIVER. THESE ARE THINGS THAT PLAYERS JUST HAVE TO DO YOUR JOB. YOU HAVE TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR RESPONSIBILITY AND ONCE THEY START DOING THAT SOME OF THESE THINGS WILL BE CLEANED UP.>>AND WE SAW THE RULE WHERE YOU CAN CHALLENGE AND DO A REPLAY ON A PASS INTERFERENCE CALL, HOW DID THAT GO?>>WELL, IT COMES FROM THE SAINTS-RAMS PLAYOFF GAME WHERE THE BIG CALL WAS MISSED AND THE LEAGUE HAD TO DO SOMETHING TO GIVE TEAMS THE OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE AMENDS FOR SOMETHING THAT WAS MISSED BY THE REFEREES. SO WE’LL SEE IF IT WORKS OR NOT. I DON’T KNOW IF IT’S GOING TO WORK. THEY’VE HAD IT IN PLAY THE ENTIRE PRESEASON. YOU SAW ABOUT 39 CALLS MADE AND ONLY SEVEN WERE OVERTURNED AND TURNED INTO PENALTIES. SO I MEAN IT’S SOMETHING THAT COACHES ARE GOING TO FEEL GOOD HAVING IT IN THEIR BACK POCKET.>>WHAT IS YOUR PREDICTION FOR THE WEEK?>>I AM GOING TO GO 17-10 BEARS.>>IS THAT UNDER THE SPREAD?>>I DON’T KNOW WHAT THE SPREAD IS.>>17-10 BEARS. BIG CAT THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU.>>AND JAMES WILL JOIN US NEXT WEEK.>>THE HOWARD BISSONS WILL TAKE ON THE HAMPTON PIRATES IN THE CHICAGO FOOTBALL CLASSIC AT SOLDIER FIELD SATURDAY. FOOTBALL GAME THAT HAPPENS EVERY FALL BETWEEN TWO HISTORICALLY BLACK COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES. BUT MOST FANS SAY THE REAL CONTEST IS NOT THE ONE BETWEEN THE FOOTBALL TEAMS IT’S ALL ABOUT THE BATTLE OF THE BANDS. ANGEL IDOWU HAS THAT STORY.>>CHICAGO FOOTBALL CLASSIC BRINGS HISTORICALLY BLACK COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES TO SOLDIER FIELD FOR WHAT STARTED AS A FOOTBALL GAME BUT AS GROWN INTO MUCH MORE.>>WE STARTED THIS FOOTBALL GAME 22 YEARS AGO. AND REALLY IT WAS JUST ABOUT THREE GUYS, WANTED TO BRING A FOOTBALL GAME TO THE CITY OF CHICAGO. AFTER THAT THIRD YEAR IT’S MORE THAN JUST ABOUT A FOOTBALL GAME AND MAKING SURE THAT OUR KIDS UNDERSTOOD THE POSHES OF SEEKING HIGHER EDUCATION AND THAT IS WHY WE STARTED THE COLLEGE FAIR.>>THE FOOTBALL CLASSIC OFFERS STUDENTS NOT JUST A COLLEGE AND CAREER FAIR BUT A BATTLE OF THE BANDS.>>IT’S ALL ABOUT THE HALFTIME. PERIOD. IT’S ALL ABOUT THE HALFTIME. THEY WANT TO SEE THE HALFTIME SHOW. IT IS A BIG DEAL. SO IT IS A BIG DEAL FOR THE KIDS TO COMPETE. AND BIG DEAL FOR THEM TO COME AND SEE THE COLLEGES BATTLE. IT’S HUGE.>>HOWARD AND HAMPTON’S MARCHING BANDS WILL COMPETE DURING HALFTIME AND BEFORE THAT 10 CHICAGO AREA HIGH SCHOOLS WILL COMPETE FOR CASH PRIZES OUTSIDE OF THE STADIUM. IT IS AN ALL DAY EVENT FOR HIGH SCHOOLS COMPETING IN THE CLASSIC’S BAND COMPETITION. NOW THOUSANDS OF STUDENTS WILL MARCH THROUGH SOLDIER FIELD AND THEN LINEUP HERE’S WHAT’S HAPPENING IN CHICAGO TONIGHT FOR THE COMPETITION.>>THEY TURN THIS FIELD INTO A FOOTBALL FIELD. THEY PUT THE LINES DOWN AND THE HASH MARKS DOWN.>>KICK COLLEGE — KING COLLEGE PREP… AND LAST YEAR’S CHAMPS PROVISO WEST.>>IT IS OUR PRESENCE ON THE FIELD OUR SOUND AND YOU CAN TELL HARD WORK YOU CAN FEEL IT AND I THINK THAT IS WHY WE WON THIS YEAR. WE PARTICIPATED IN THIS EVENT MAYBE THE LAST 10 YEARS. AND THIS WAS THE FIRST TIME WE WON. AND YOU KNOW, I THINK CAN JUST CLICKED.>>NOW, KING’S BAND PLACED IN PREVIOUS YEARS BUT THEIR DIRECTOR BEN WASHINGTON SAYS FOR HIS TEAM THE PRIZE IS THE EXPERIENCE.>>SEEING THE STUDENTS THAT WE HAVE SENT AWAY TO COLLEGE THIS YEAR, HOWARD UNIVERSITY IS GOING TO BE HERE AND ONE OF OUR TUBE BA PLAYERS IS PLAYING WITH HOWARD NOW THEY ARE EXCITED BECAUSE THEY KNOW HIM. SEEING THAT IT MAKES IT MORE ATTAINABLE TO SAY I CAN BE HERE NEXT YEAR.>>THAT HAS NOT STOPPED THE TWO DIRECTORS FROM HEALTHY COMPETITION.>>WHEN I ASKED ABOUT THEIR SET LIST THE FRIENDLY RIVAL SHARED THEIR SECRET TO THE WIN.>>WELL, THE MUSIC IS A SECRET. WE ARE DOING SOME SONGS I DON’T WANT TO SAY YOU KNOW. I DID ARRANGE THE MUSIC FOR THE BAND. WE HAVE SOME SURPRISE GUESTS.>>ARE WE GOING TO WIN?>>YES.>>ONCE WE START GUESSING OURSELVES THEN IT WON’T HAPPEN THAT ALWAYS HAS TO BE THE AT 250UD AND I HOPE IT’S THE ATTITUDE FOR THE COMPETING BANDS AS WELL.>>FOR “CHICAGO TONIGHT” I’M ANGEL IDOWU.>>AND THE CHICAGO FOOTBALL CLASSIC KICKS OFF SATURDAY AT SOLDIER FIELD. THE BATTLE OF THE BANDS IS NOON. YOU CAN FIND MORE INFORMATION ON OUR WEBSITE.>>AND WE MEET THE NEXT MUSIC DIRECTOR OF LYRIC OPERA OF CHICAGO RIGHT AFTER THIS. [♪♪♪]>>A CHANGING OF THE GUARD IS ON TAP AT THE LYRIC OPERA OF CHICAGO. THEY ANNOUNCED THE NEXT MUSIC DIRECTOR WILL BE ENRIQUE MAZZOLA SEEN HER CONDUCTING THE FRENCH ORCHESTRA. THE SPANISH BORN ITALIAN CONDUCTOR WILL TRANSITION TO BECOME THE NEXT MUSIC DIRECTOR. AND WE ARE PLEASED TO WELCOME MAESTRO ENRIQUE MAZZOLA AND THE GENERAL DIRECTOR AND PRESIDENT OF THE LYRIC OPERA, ANTHONY FLOYD. WELCOME BOTH OF YOU.>>CONGRATULATIONS ON A HUGE DAY. MAESTRO MAZZOLA YOU HAVE CONDUCTED ALL OVER THE WORLD WHY DID YOU WANT THIS JOB?>>BECAUSE IT IS CHICAGO AND CHICAGO IS A FANTASTIC CITY AND LYRIC IS ONE OF THE MAIN OPERA HOUSES IN THE WORLD. I’M THRILLED AND EXCITED TO BE HERE AND TO SHARE A REAL CHICAGOAN LIFE IN THIS MAGNIFICENT OPERA HOUSE.>>AND YOU ARE MOVING HERE FULL-TIME AND YOU WILL LIVE.>>I LOVE CHICAGO. I LOVE BEING HERE. IT’S FANTASTIC CITY. AND I AM IN THE LYRIC IS A UNIQUE OPERA HOUSE IN THE WORLD.>>AND ANTHONY TELL ME ABOUT THE PROCESS THAT BROUGHT YOU TO MAESTRO MAZZOLA.>>DAVIS WAS COURTEOUS ENOUGH TO TELL ME A YEAR-AND-A-HALF AGO OF HIS INTENTION TO STAND DOWN AS OUR MUSIC DIRECTOR FOR THE END OF THE 2021 SEASON. THIS HAS BEEN A THOROUGH AND QUIET AND LONG PROCESS. IN WHICH WE THOUGHT VERY CAREFULLY. AND SIR ANDREW WAS PART OF THIS PROCESS WITH ME AS WERE OUR CHORUS AND ORCHESTRA AND OUR MUSIC STAFF OUR YOUNG ARTISTS. TO REALLY UNDERSTAND WHAT WE NEEDED IN OUR IDEAL MUSIC DIRECTOR. AND WE ACTUALLY CONSTRUCTED A LIST OF 22 QUALITIES. INCLUDING BEING A WORLD CLASS CONDUCTOR, INCLUDING BEING A METICULOUS REHEARSER AND BUILDER OF CHORUS AND ORCHESTRA INCLUDING A COMMITMENT TO CHICAGO. AND I MUST SAY VERY QUICKLY ENRIQUE MAZZOLA WHO HAS BEEN A GUEST CONDUCTOR HERE AT LYRIC OPERA OF CHICAGO TWICE NOW IN BOTH 2016 AND 2018, EMERGED AS TRULY THE IDEAL CANDIDATE. HE AND I HAVE BEEN IN DISCUSSION ABOUT THIS FOR PROBABLY SIX, SEVEN MONTHS. AND I HAVE TO SAY FOLLOWING EVERY CONVERSATION, IT JUST FELT LIKE THE MOST PERFECT FIT.>>AND MAESTRO YOU WILL BE GUEST CONDUCTING A PIECE THIS YEAR. ARE YOU RENOWNED FOR YOUR BELL KONTO IS THAT GIVE US A GLIMPSE AS TO WHAT YOU INTEND TO BRING TO THE LYRIC?>>WELL, LISA MILLER IS BEAUTIFUL, IMPORTANT OPERA PRODUCTION. IT IS A LITTLE BIT LESS FAMOUS THAN THE OTHERS. BUT IT IS A REALLY A KEY OPERA T VERDE IS BUILDING IN HIS COMPOSER LIFE. THERE ARE VERY BEAUTIFUL MOMENTS OF BELL KONTO. BELL KONTO IS AN ITALIAN WORD MEANS BEAUTIFUL SINGING. SO IT GIVES IMMEDIATELY THE IMAGE OF WHAT BELL KONTO IS. BEAUTIFUL MELODIES AND ACCOMPANIED BY A SOFT AND DREAMY ORCHESTRA. INTO A BIG DRAMA. TRAGEDY. LIKE THE STORY OF LISA MILLER.>>AND SHOULD THE AUDIENCE EXPECT AN EMPHASIS ON THIS REPERTOIRE?>>YES. LISA MILLER STARTS A SERIES OF EARLY VERDE OPERAS THAT WITH THE LYRIC I WILL DEVELOP IN THE NEXT SEASON.>>WE’RE PLANNING A WIDE RANGE OF REPERTOIRE FOR ENRIQUE MAZZOLA TO CONDUCT INCLUDING GERMAN, AND FRENCH REPERTOIRE AND CONTEMPORARY REPERTOIRE.>>WHAT GOES INTO THE DECISIONS WANTING TO HAVE THE WIDEST REPERTOIRE AND TO ATTRACT THE WIDEST AUDIENCE?>>IT IS A FINE JUGGLING ACT THAT WE TAKE A GREAT DEAL OF PLEASURE REALLY EXPLORING. AND WE SPENT MANY HOURS TOGETHER DURING THE SUMMER JUST TO SIR ANDREW AND I SPENT HOURS TOGETHER THINKING ABOUT WHAT ARE THE PRIORITIES ARTISTICLY FOR THE COMPANY AND WHAT ARE THE PRIORITIES THAT WILL REALLY TAKE THE CHORUS AND ORCHESTRA AND OUR YOUNG ARTISTS ON A JOURNEY AND WHAT IS IT THAT WILL THRILL OUR AUDIENCES. AND WE HAVE TO COME UP WITH A REALLY BALANCED, EXCITING, WIDE RANGING PROGRAM. WHICH I THINK WE HAVE.>>MAESTRO CAN YOU GIVE US A GLIMPSE INTO WHAT THE JOB OF MUSIC DIRECTOR IS BEYOND CONDUCTING. WHAT ELSE ARE YOU GOING TO DO?>>I WILL WORK WITH BIG TEAM OF THE LYRIC TO IMAGINE THE NEXT SEASON. AT THE SAME TIME, I THINK THAT A MUSIC DIRECTOR IS ALSO AN ARTIST CONNECTED WITH THE CITY. SO MY DREAM IT’S SOMETHING THAT I REALLY WANT TO DO FROM TODAY, IS TO EXPLORE CHICAGO TO KNOW CHICAGO, TO FEEL CHICAGO, ALSO TO IMAGINE THAT, OF COURSE, THE LYRIC IS A BUILDING AND WE DO OPERA AT THE LYRIC. BUT I ALSO IMAGINE THAT OPERA IS FOR EVERYBODY. AND IN SOME WAY, I WOULD LIKE TO GO EVERYWHERE IN CHICAGO TO SPEAK AND TO SPEAK ABOUT OPERA. AND MAYBE WHY NOT ALSO TO MAKE OPERAS.>>AND ANTHONY HOW CAN THE LYRIC BRING ITS PROGRAMMING TO AREAS OF THE CITY THAT AREN’T TYPICALLY ACCUSTOMED TO WITNESSING OPERA?>>WE HAVE DIVERSIFIED WHAT WE DO OVER THE LAST FIVE OR SIX YEARS BOTH IN THE HOUSE AND AROUND THE CITY. WE HAVE OUR MUSICAL THAT ATTRACTS TENS OF THOUSANDS OF NEWCOMERS TO THE OPERA HOUSE EVERY YEAR. WE ARE ABOUT TO HAVE A GREAT PARTNERSHIP WITH THE JOFFREY BALLET. THE JOFFREY ARE BECOMING THE RESIDENT BALLET COMPANY OF THE LYRIC OPERA HOUSE. TENS OF THOUSANDS OF NEW PEOPLE. EDUCATION INITIATIVE WHICH IS SEVEN YEARS OLD WHICH IN A RANGE OF WAYS HAS ESTABLISHED WONDERFUL COLLABORATIVE, CREATIVE PROGRAMS WITH CHICAGO URBAN LEAGUE, WITH THE NATIONAL MUSEUM OF MEXICAN ART IN PILSEN AND IT HAS RANGED FROM COMMUNITY CREATEDDED PERFORMANCES OF WORKS THAT COMMUNITY MEMBERS CREATE THEMSELVES ALL THE WAY THROUGH TO THE WORLD’S FIRST TWO MARIACHI OPERAS. THERE ARE COUNTLESS WAYS WE ARE ABLE TO REDEFINE WHAT OPERA IS AND WHAT IT TAKES TO BE A GREAT 21ST CENTURY OPERA COMPANY.>>AND MAESTRO, WE MENTIONED YOU WERE BORN IN SPAIN GREW UP IN ITALY. YOU CURRENTLY HAVE BEEN LIVING IN PARIS. WHAT ARE THE TOP IMPRESSIONS YOU HAVE OF CHICAGO AS A CITY?>>WELL, CHICAGO, IT’S A VERY INTERESTING CITY, VERY FRIENDLY CITY. THIS IS ONE — AND THE REASON OF LIFE. SO IT’S BUSY CITY BUT AT THE SAME TIME I NOTICED CHICAGO YABS HAVE TIME TO LIVE LIFE. I MEAN TO ENJOY THE GOOD FOOD. I AM ITALIAN AND GOOD FOOD IS IMPORTANT PART OF THE DAY. AND TRYING TO ENJOY A DRINK A COCKTAIL. IT IS A WAY SOMEHOW EUROPEAN A LITTLE BIT MORE RELAXED. AND AT THE SAME TIME IT’S POSSIBLE TO DO EVERYTHING IN CHICAGO.>>ALL RIGHT WELL, ANTHONY FLOYD AND MAESTRO ENRIQUE MAZZOLA WELCOME TO CHICAGO AND THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE.>>AND NOW TO BRANDIS FRIEDMAN AND A NEW COMEDY SERIES SET ON CHICAGO’S SOUTH SIDE.>>THANK YOU.>>A NEW SCRIPTED COMEDY SERIES SET IN AND AROUND CHICAGO’S ENGLEWOOD NEIGHBORHOOD IS LIGHTING UP THE SMALL SCREEN. THE SHOW SOUTH SIDE AIMS TO GIVE AN IMPRESSION WHAT LIFE ON THE SOUTH SIDE IS ABOUT. THE CAST FEATURES CHICAGO FACES AND IS BROUGHT TO LIFE BY NATIVES BEHIND THE SCREEN AS WELL.>>YES, I WENT TO KENWOOD, YES I KNOW EDDIE CURRY WE USED TO GO TOGETHER.>>GET ME AN EQUATION TO MAKE YOUR BROTHER FASTER.>>AND JOINING US TONIGHT IS ONE OF THE CAST MEMBERS AND CHICAGO NATIVE LEROY HAWKINS WHO IS A MUSICIAN AND STAND UP COMIC. HAWKINS STARS IN NBC’S CHICAGO PD AND WELCOME TO “CHICAGO TONIGHT”.>>IT IS A PLEASURE TO BE HERE. THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME.>>YOU HAVE A RECURRING ROLE ON THE COMEDY SHOW BASED IN CHICAGO AND YOUR CHARACTER IS MICHAEL SHAW OWENS. WHO IS THAT?>>HE IS A VICE LORD FROM THE BLOCK AND I REMEMBER WHEN I WAS GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO AUDITION HE WAS A VEGAN OR A VICE LORD WHEN I GOT HIM BUT I FIGURED IN THE COMEDY IT WOULD BE DOPE TO GIVE HIM A TYPE OF DISCIPLINE. SOMETHING THAT WOULD PRESERVE HIM FROM ACTUALLY HAVING TO KILL ANYBODY. BUT IF HE IS GOING TO BE THE THREAT OF VIOLENCE THEY HAVE A DISCIPLINE TO HOLD HIS BACK. SO VEGANISM THAT UNIFIES THE VIBE AND KEEPS THEM PEACEFUL WHERE THEY MIGHT NOT BE AND SOMETHING THAT I THOUGHT WOULD BE INTERESTING TO PLAY WITH.>>A GANG MEMBER WITH MORALS.>>YES.>>WHAT DID YOU MODEL THIS CHARACTER ON?>>TO BE HONEST WITH YOU, I THOUGHT A LOT ABOUT MY OLDER BROTHER. I HAVE A BIG BRO, SHANE. AND EVERYBODY CALLS HIM BIG BRO. AND YOU KNOW, NATURALLY WE GOT HUMBLE BEGINNINGS AND I LIKE THE WAY THAT MY BIG BROTHER HE IS LIKE A REAL HARD SOUL BUT YOU CAN SEE HIM LIKE PUTTING GARBAGE CANS ON THE BLOCKS AND MAKES SURE THAT EVERYBODY WITHIN HIS ECOSYSTEM PLAYS THEIR ROLE AND DOES THEIR BEST TO MAKE SURE THAT THE HOOD IS RAN THE RIGHT WAY.>>ON THE SHOW YOUR CHARACTER IS SCARY. WE HAVE A CLIP OF OTHER CHARACTERS DESCRIBING HIM.>>OK, I GOT A GREAT IDEA. WHAT IF WE HAD HIM GET THAT XBOX FROM MICHAEL SHAW OWENS. THAT IS RIGHT. YOU SEE THAT PICTURE THERE?>>APOLOGIZE.>>HE IS GOING CRAZY. WOW.>>I WANT YOU TO GET IT BACK FROM HIM WITHOUT ANY PROTECTION.>>SHAW’S TOO DANGEROUS. HE MAY GRAB IT QUICK AND HE IS A MARINE.>>FUN TO PLAY THAT CHARACTER?>>ABSOLUTELY. I LOVE IT. AND I HAVE TO WEAR SLEEVES WHICH IS DOPE.>>THAT IS CONVENIENT.>>AS A CHICAGO NATIVE CHICAGOANS ARE PROUD OF THE STORIES THEY TELL YOU HAVE TO BE AUTHENTIC. HOW SUCCESSFUL DO YOU THINK THE SHOW IS IN PORTRAYING THE VOICE OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND CHICAGO?>>MAN, I THINK THEY DO A PRETTY GOOD JOB. AND I’M GLAD YOU USED THAT SUCCESSFUL WORD BECAUSE I LIKE TO BALANCE OFF OF THAT IS SIGNIFICANT. I THINK THAT THAT IS WITH THE SOUTH SIDE IS GOING TO DO, PLANT A SIGNIFICANT SEED IN THE CITY. NOT TOO MANY SHOWS THAT DEPICT THE CITY THE WAY THAT SOUTH SIDE DOES I’M ON CHICAGO PD EVERY WEDNESDAY NIGHT AT 9:00 P.M. TRUST ME, SHOWS LIKE THE SHY WHICH ARE GREAT SHOWS BUT DEPICTS A DIFFERENT PART OF THE CITY. HISTORICALLY SHOWS LIKE BOSS. SHOWS US THE TEXTURES THAT SOUTH SIDE ISN’T GOING TO GIVE YOU. WE ARE GOING TO KEEP IT LIGHT AND HUMOROUS AND HUMAN. WHICH IS A STYLE THAT I THINK IS UNKNOWN COMING FROM THIS CITY WHICH IS DOPE.>>WHAT WOULD YOU SAY THE EXPERIENCE IS THAT YOU ARE TRYING TO CONVEY?>>WE ARE TRYING TO CONVEY THOSE EXPERIENCES OF THE EVERYDAY GUY RIGHT, WHO HAS HOPES AND ASPIRATIONS. BUT LIFE HAPPENS. BUT IT DOESN’T MEAN THAT YOU KNOW, THAT LIFE HAS TO GET THAT DARK. I THINK THAT SOUTH SIDE IS A GREAT EXAMPLE OF HOW JOY CAN SUSTAIN YOUR HAPPINESS OR YOUR SADNESS. YOU WILL SEE THE CHARACTERS THAT ARE FILLED WITH JOY. AND EVEN THOUGH THINGS HAPPEN TO THEM WITHIN THE PLOT THAT MIGHT MAKE THEIR DAY GO SOUTH, THEY ARE STILL VERY MUCH SUSTAINED BY HAPPINESS AND THE LIGHTNESS THAT KEEPS EVERYTHING MOVING FORWARD.>>DO YOU THINK NON-CHICAGOANS CAN APPRECIATE IT?>>ABSOLUTELY. ABSOLUTELY. AND I THINK IT’S GOING TO MAKE THEM WANT TO COME TO CHICAGO MORE. I KNOW PEOPLE WHO ARE FANS OF THE CHICAGO PD WHO ARE SCARED TO COME TO CHICAGO A LITTLE BIT BECAUSE WE SHOW THAT PART AND WE TELL THOSE STORIES. BUT I THINK THE STORIES WE TELL ON THE SOUTH SIDE ARE INTERESTING AND COME THROUGH.>>WELL, ON THAT NOTE THERE IS A LOT OF REFERENCES TO SPECIFIC LOCATIONS IN CHICAGO. LIKE A CHARACTER I GREW UP ON 51ST AND I WENT TO THE HEARST HIGH SCHOOL.>>IT’S IMPORTANT TO INCLUDE THOSE BECAUSE MORE OFTEN THAN NOT WE WANT OUR AUDIENCE TO RECOGNIZE THEMSELVES. AND TO HEAR THEMSELVES IN THE STORIES WE’RE TELL BECAUSE THEY ARE AUTHENTIC. AND SIMILAR TO CHICAGO PD OUR GREATEST COMPLIMENT COMES FROM THE CHICAGO POLICE OFFICERS WHO TELL US THAT I WILL TAKE YOU OUT WITH ME ON A RIDE ALONG ANY DAY. AND WHEN YOU SEE PEOPLE FROM THE SOUTH SIDE OR PEOPLE WHO REPRESENT THAT CULTURE, WELCOME THEY SAY IT’S THE BEST SHOW ON TV BECAUSE THE STORIES YOU TELL AND HOW TRUE WE’RE STAYING WITH CHICAGO LIKE SPADES, STEPPING, YOU KNOW, OUR FAVORITE CHICAGO RESTAURANTS. OUR JARGON ALL OF THAT IS CARRIED AWAY.>>YOU ARE WORKING WITH OTHER NATIVE CHICAGOANS AND THE COCREATORS. WHAT IS IT LIKE GETTING TO WORK WITH FELLOW CHICAGOANS AND SHOOTING BOTH SHOWS IN CHICAGO? WHAT IS THAT LIKE?>>IT IS A DREAM COME TRUE. I HIT THE LORD’S LOTTERY TWICE. I DON’T KNOW HOW THAT HAPPENED. IT’S GREAT EXPERIENCE TO COOK WITH CHICAGO CREATIVES. IT GIVES US SOMETHING TO BE PROUD OF. I SEE OTHER COMEDIANS AND THE PRODUCERS ARE GREAT AND I THINK THEY ARE THE SMARTEST PEOPLE IN THE GAME RIGHT NOW FOR TRULY ALLOWING THE AUTHENTICITY OF THE CITY TO TELL THE STORY. RIGHT? SO EVERYBODY THAT WE CAST YOU KNOW, FROM BIG ROLES TO SMALL ROLES ARE VERY MUCH CHICAGO VERY MUCH SOUTH SIDE SPECIFIC WHEN YOU LET THE STORIES TELL THEMSELVES, YOU USUALLY GET A GOOD PRODUCT.>>A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOU AND YOUR BACKGROUND. YOU WEAR A LOT OF ENTERTAINMENT HATS. HOW DID YOU GET INTO THE ARTS?>>WELL, YOU KNOW, I THINK STAND UP WAS MY FIRST LOVE. INTRODUCED ME TO EVERYTHING. ACTING FELL ON THE BACK END OF POETRY AND MUSIC HAPPENED IN-BETWEEN. I CONSIDER MYSELF A WARRIOR. WHEN THERE IS A VOID I CAN FILL IT WITH A VIBE AND I’M GRATEFUL TO ADD VALUE THAT WAY. YOU KNOW, I ONLY REALLY SEPARATE THEM IN MY HEAD THEY COME FROM THE SAME SOURCE. AND I’M GRATEFUL TO BE A VESSEL ON THIS LEVEL.>>YOUR INSTAGRAM SAYS YOU ARE A KID FROM JAVY BUT YOU GIVE BACK TO THE KIDS. HOW DO YOU DO THAT?>>RIGHT NOW I’M WORKING WITH THE SALVATION ARMY THE SECOND YEAR I AM THE REGIONAL FACE OF THEIR CHRISTMAS CAMPAIGN. AND I WILL DIG DEEP AND GO TO MY CHURCH AND I THINK MY CHURCH IS WHERE WE ARE GOING TO START TO TELL OUR STORY ABOUT HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO SECURE HOME AND YOUR HEADQUARTERS THROUGH EVERYDAY BATTLE OF THIS WAR GOING ON ESPECIALLY DURING THE CHRISTMAS SEASON. I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO THAT. THANK YOU FOR JOINING US.>>THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME.>>SOUTH SIDE AIRS ON COMEDY CENTRAL WEDNESDAY NIGHTS WITH A TWO-EPISODE FINALE ON SEPTEMBER 18TH AND YOU CAN CATCH HIM IN THE SEVENTH SEASON OF CHICAGO PD. PARIS BACK TO YOU.>>THANK YOU.>>AND THE CHICAGO ARCHITECTURE BIENNIAL BEGINS NEXT WEEK AND A PHOTOGRAPHY SHOW IS A PRELUDE TO THE BIENNIAL. AT THE FARNSWORTH HOUSE, PHOTOGRAPHS FOCUS ON THAT FAMOUS MAKER OF MODERNIST ARCHITECTURE MIES VANDER ROHE.>>INSECTS ARE IN THE AIR AND THE TOURISTS ARE ON THE GROUND AND THE FARNSWORTH HOUSE SEEMS TO LEVITATE ABOVE IT ALL IN THE ISOLATED SITE ON THE FOX RIVER IN PLANO, ILLINOIS. MADE OF STEEL AND GLASS AND CONCRETE THE HOUSE IS ONE OF THE MOST SIGNIFICANT WORKS BY THE ARCHITECT MIES VAN ROW AND WAS OCCUPIED BY EDITH FARNSWORTH.>>Dr. FARNSWORTH FOUND HER NEW HOUSE PROBLEMATIC BUT…>>AS MUCH AS SHE COMPLAINED ABOUT THE HOUSE BEING IMPRACTICAL, SHE ENJOYED IT. SHE WAS OUT HERE EVERY WEEKEND AND SHE ENJOYED THE HOUSE FOR 20 YEARS.>>MIES VANDER ROW WAS THE LAST DIRECTOR OF THE INFLUENTIAL SCHOOL OF MODERN ARCHITECTURE AND EMIGRATED FROM JEREMY AND BECAME HEAD OF THE ARCHITECTURE DEPARTMENT AT IIT WHERE HE DESIGNED CROWN HALL. PREVIOUS TO CROWN HALL HE DESIGNED THE TWIN GLASS AND STEEL APARTMENT TOWERS AT 86880 NORTHLAKE SHORE DRIVE. BUT THE FIRST BIG AMERICAN COMMISSION WAS IN PLANO, ILLINOIS THAT HE ADVANCED HIS MINIMALIST APPROACH.>>THIS WAS A DESIGN BUILD PROJECT FOR MIES. HE WORKED OUT ON THE DETAILS THAT HE USED AT CROWN HALL AND 86880. HE HAD DONE A COUPLE OF BRICK BOXES ON THE IIT CAMPUS BUT HAD NOT BUILT ANYTHING UNTIL THE FARNSWORTH HOURS HOUSE. AND THIS IS SEMINOLE FOR THE AMERICAN CAREER AND THE INTERNATIONAL STYLE.>>ELSEWHERE ON THE 60-ACRE PROPERTY AN ARTIST PREPARES A SHOW OF PHOTOGRAPHS OF MIES BUILDINGS FROM CHICAGO AND AROUND THE WORLD. WE SPOKE WITH THE BERLIN-BASED PHOTOGRAPHER WHO TOOK THE PICTURES FOR WHAT SHE CALLS THE MIES PROJECT.>>WHEN I FEEL OPEN GOOD CREATIVE I CANNOT IMAGINE A BETTER PLACE THAN A MIES PLACE. TO ME IT IS A SPECIAL FEELING EXPERIENCE OF PLACE AND SPACE BEING THERE. AND WHAT WAS SO INTERESTING CONCERNING THE MIES PROJECT IS THAT I GOT THE SEEM FEELING BEING IN DIFFERENT CITIES AND DIFFERENT FRAMED AND IT WAS ALWAYS SIMILAR FEELING. I FOUND AN INVITATION FOR BEING INSIDE AND OUTSIDE AT THE SAME TIME.>>HER PHOTOGRAPHS TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE REFLECTIVE SURFACES OF MIES BUILDINGS.>>IT WAS A COMBINATION OF THAT FEELING OF SPACE AND THE REFLECTIONS IN THE GLASS WHICH MADE THE PROJECT. I DON’T CHANGE ANYTHING IN THE IMAGES I DO NOT MINUTE THEM LATER. SO I HAVE TO TAKE WHAT I GET.>>DEVELOPMENT ON THE FOX RIVER WATERSHED MADE FLOODING A THREAT. THE FARNSWORTH HOUSE HAS FLOODED SEVEN TIMES IN 70 YEARS. THE WORST BEING IN 1996. RECENT STUDIES SUGGEST DIFFERENT WAYS TO MITIGATE THE FLOODING INCLUDING INSTALLING A HAUGH DRALLIC LIFT THAT WOULD RAISE THE BUILDING AND MOVING THE ENTIRE STRUCTURE TO HIGHER GROUND. A MORE IN-DEPTH ANALYSIS HAS BEEN REQUESTED. THE HOUSE REMAINS A DESTINATION FOR INTERNATIONAL FANS OF MODERN ARCHITECTURE.>>IT IS A PILGRIMAGE SITE WE HAVE 10,000 VISITORS A YEAR. A THIRD FROM OUTSIDE OF THE UNITED STATES.>>MIES WORKED WITH INSIDE OUTSIDE. HE DEALS WITH CULTURE AND NATURE. AND THIS BUILDING IS SO MUCH ABOUT NATURE BEING IN NATURE.>>FOR “CHICAGO TONIGHT” THIS IS JAY SHEFSKY.>>FULTHE NATIONAL TRUST FOR HISTORIC PRESERVATION AND LANDMARKS ILLINOIS ACQUIRED THE FARNSWORTH HOUSE AT AUCTION AND OPENED TO THE PUBLIC THE FOLLOWING YEAR AND YOU CAN VISIT OUR WEBSITE FOR INFORMATIONISM AND THAT IS OUR SHOW FOR THIS THURSDAY NIGHT.
