Topping our news...

A new name for the "Going for the Games" blog. Chicago's Olympic loss means a new focus for this space: Welcomes to "Notes from the Newsroom."  This is where you'll find the behind-the-scenes tidbits and story-behind-the-story morsels that don't always make it on the air.

Today I'm working on what's next for the proposed Olympic Village site at Michael Reese Hospital.  Faster than you can "it's Rio," Mayor Daley killed two aldermen's proposal to plant a casino on the site.   

I'm just back from City Hall where it's not looking likely the 36-acres will become purely a mixed income housing neighborhood as originally planned.  Instead, the Alderman from that Ward suggests an expansion of McCormick Place - or at the very least entertainment and other options that would appeal to convention-goers.  More tonight on ABC 7 News @ 6p.
