While the sound of leaves crunching underneath may soon fill the air, one of September’s big activities has been number crunching. Chicago’s Inspector General issued a report suggesting ways the City could boost revenues and trim the fat, and Mayor Emanuel’s budget is expected in a couple of weeks. Meanwhile, the Sox and Cubs wrapped up their seasons and the Bears made a rather rocky start to theirs. And - as school got underway - some students found they were in for a bit of a longer day.
So there was plenty to talk about in September's installment of Month in Review. Joining host Alison Cuddy to review the headlines were David Schaper, a Chicago Bureau Reporter for NPR News; Frank Sennett, Editor-in-Chief of Time Out Chicago; and Laura Washington, a columnist for the Chicago SunTimes.
