Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review: 1/10

 

On this edition of Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review with Joel Weisman, a polar vortex comes to town. How did Chicagoans cope with the double punch of snow and bitter cold? And how did city and suburban officials handle plowing, salting and other vital services? Did school officials make the right call? Republican gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner sends mixed messages on the minimum wage. Chicago’s gun shop ban is ruled unconstitutional, while the Illinois State Police is flooded with applications for concealed carry permits. The Cardinal releases abuse records. And in sports, Frank Thomas and Greg Maddox are voted into Baseball’s Hall of Fame.

Guests:
- Mary Ann Ahern, NBC-5 News
- John McCarron, Chicago Tribune
- Charles Thomas, ABC-7 News
- Jim Litke, Associated Press
