Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review: 9/6

On this edition of Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review with Eddie Arruza, it was a roller coaster week for Mayor Rahm Emanuel as he made peace with his Inspector General Joe Ferguson, announced upscale grocer Whole Foods is coming to Englewood, and faced more fallout from ex-comptroller Amer Ahmad’s indictment on a kickback scheme. Safe Passage experiences high turnover, raising concerns about whether students are adequately protected walking to and from school. Gubernatorial candidates begin choosing running mates, while critics blast costly renovations to the Illinois Capitol in Springfield. And in sports, the NFL season kicks off with the Bears hosting the Bengals on Sunday at Soldier Field.
