Mayor Rahm Emanuel pledges police reforms, even if Donald Trump’s DOJ doesn’t see it as a priority. Gov. Bruce Rauner says he’s skipping the inauguration. Lawmakers head back to Springfield next week with a faint glimmer of hope for a budget. Retail giants struggle. And the Bears look to the future but don’t offer fans many details.
