… that Woodstock Willie and Punxsutawney Phil saw their shadows on Feb. 2, signaling to those who believe that humans would have six more weeks of winter. The lake and the lakefront, though, still could have some rough days ahead. As readers may know, it’s not clear if or when the dog beach will resurface. The Dempster Beach office renovations are approaching the $300,000 budget ceiling, with a new change order of about $5,000. The change order for engineering services for the reconstruction of the south pier at Church Street increases the contract with SmithGroup JJR of Chicago by $8,000 to $98,500 – not a large change – but it extends the time by 455 days, until March 31, 2019. The entire project is expected to cost $625,000.

Northwestern’s new 415,000-square-foot glass building, the Kellogg Global Hub, provides an interior space where students, faculty, and researchers from the Kellogg School of Management and the Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences economics program can meet and collaborate. This is a great educational building; one can feel the energy immediately upon entering.

Hooked on Fishing: Equipment Dreams And Icy Dangers
The best way I know of to beat the winter blahs is the Schaumburg Fishing Show each January, and this year the show was terrific. I spent the entire day – six hours – wandering the aisles of the Convention Center.
