Morning Shift - June 25, 2015

Chicago's West Side was thrust into the spotlight four decades ago when "Cooley High" was released. Film and TV show maker Eric Monte created the American classic based on his life and times living in Cabrini-Green and attending Cooley Vocational High School. The film's 40th anniversary is this week. Cooley High stars Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs and Chicago-born Robert Townsend discuss the iconic film and its impact. Also, a taste of Ireland with music from Sean Cleland. And, a look at CPS' financial strategy. (Flickr/Hannes Engelbrecht)
