The Morning Drive Podcast: Friday

Good morning!

Welcome to this edition of the Morning Drive Podcast; in today’s episode, guess what’s back…pensions! And we’ve got your weekend all planned out for you. But first, some news:

Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle is pushing long-overdue changes in bond court. Officials say the changes would make the system more just and save the county money.

An attorney for Chicago terrorist suspect Shaker Masri told a federal judge on Thursday Masri plans to accept a plea agreement instead of going to trial.

It’s Friday, and that means the Weekender podcast! Today, we’ve got two words for you: food fight!

Blogs we’re reading this morning:

The rise and fall of Humbolt Park by WBEZ blogger John Schmidt

►WBEZ sports blogger Cheryl Raye Stout talks to White Sox All-Star pitcher John Sale about the first half of the season

And your WEATHER for today: Mostly sunny, early in the morning then becoming partly cloudy later on. 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, highs around 90. Light winds throughout the day, then partly cloudy with a 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms into the evening. Tonight, lows in the upper 60s by the lake, mid 70s downtown though. So if you’re heading to Pitchfork, bring some water and maybe an umbrella.
