Rove finally gets chance to speak today at Loyola

Posted by Jessica Reynolds on March 22, 2011

Karl Rove

By Jessica Reynolds

After months of controversy, Karl Rove will get his chance to speak today at Loyola University Chicago.

Rove, senior advisor and deputy chief of staff to former President George W. Bush, and now a FOX News regular, will speak at the university at 7 p.m. today.

The event will begin at 7 p.m. in Mundelein Auditorium and students are free with the show of their ID.  Students will also have the opportunity to pose their own questions to Rove by writing them down on note cards that will be quietly collected during the speech to better facilitate the event.

Rove was originally scheduled to speak at Loyola during the fall 2010 semester, but the event was cancelled due to Loyola’s concern that sponsoring a political speaker so close to the November midterm election could jeopardize the university’s non-profit tax status.

The cancellation caused an outcry from the College Republicans, the student organization who had planned to host Rove. Group members were persistent in their efforts to reschedule the event.

“I made a promise to carry out the College Republican’s mission,” said Matthew Noto, a sophomore political science student and president of Loyola College Republicans. “We said we would have Rove on campus, we didn’t let any obstacles stop us. We brushed ourselves off, went back to the drawing board and as promised Karl Rove will be on campus in March.”

Here’s the university’s press release on the event:

“Loyola’s College Republicans are hosting Karl Rove on campus this March and we welcome him. As a Jesuit and Catholic university, Loyola is a community of knowledge and learning open to the free exchange of ideas. We encourage open and debate as we believe such discussion is integral to educating students and our Jesuit Catholic values.

“Ground in our Catholic intellectual faith tradition, Loyola University Chicago believes that demonstrating our openness to explore complex issues are marks of our strength and vitality, and we relish the opportunity to engage in debate and discussion over differing points of view.”

The event is open to the Loyola community.

“No matter what your political affiliation is, all are welcome,” Noto said.

Rogers Park bar bouncer accused of shooting patron

Posted by emn2011 on March 22, 2011

A doorman at Gallaghers bar in Rogers Park allegedly shot a patron in a dispute over an unpaid bar bill.

Gallaghers, 1770 W. Greenleaf Ave., is located about one mile from Loyola University Chicago’s Lake Shore Campus.

The Chicago Sun-Times has the rest of the details:

A doorman at a Rogers Park bar faces felony aggravated battery charges after he shot a patron in a dispute over an unpaid bar tab, prosecutors alleged.

Danielito Valentin, 31, also faces charges of impersonating a police officer after he admitted carrying a Chicago Police badge so he could pose as an off-duty cop, it’s alleged.

Valentin was working the door at Gallaghers bar, 1770 W. Greenleaf, Friday night when he got in a dispute with a group of men who had been kicked out of the bar for failing to settle a tab three weeks earlier, Assistant Cook County State’s Attorney Dan Pinowarczyk said.

He shot one of the men in the leg, before ditching his gun, which was recovered, authorities said.

Police found the badge in Valentin’s possession when he was arrested in the 1900 block of West Touhy, Pinowarczyk said. Valentin alleged the victim pulled a gun first.

Loyola Chick-fil-A will not open until students leave for summer

Posted by loyolastudentdispatch on March 22, 2011

LATEST UPDATE: Chick-fil-A caught in anti-gay controversy

Loyola University Chicago students drooling for the opening of the new Chick-fil-A will be gone for summer by the time it opens.

Chick-fil-A was originally planning an April 28 opening day for its new location at Loyola University Chicago’s Water Tower Campus.

But a recent glimpse inside the site at 30 E. Chicago Ave. suggests the restaurant has a long way to go before opening.

Meanwhile Crain’s Chicago Business is reporting that the site will now open in May.

Chick-fil-A fans have been following the Facebook page:  Chick-fil-A Loyola Water Tower . The chain also has a Chick-fil-A Loyola Water Tower Twitter site.

Loyola Student Dispatch was the first to report that the Atlanta-based chicken signed a lease with Loyola when the chain posted the sign inside a first-floor space at 30 E. Chicago Ave., in retail space that is part of the Corboy Law Center.

The Chick-fil-A Facebook page states that lifelong Chicago resident Lauren Silich will own and operate the restaurant.

When opened, the site will be the sixth site Chick-fil-A has picked in the Chicago area since the company began looking for locations here.

But the 5,225-square-foot storefront would be mark a shift in Chick-fil-A’s recent real estate strategy, which has typically focused on suburban locations with drive-through windows, according to an earlier story from Crain’s Chicago Business. The company prefers a one-acre land parcels for its locations, according to the Web site of Mid-America Real Estate Corp., which represents Chick-fil-A in its Chicago expansion.

Yet the Chicago Avenue location will be surrounded by plenty of potential customers. About 11,000 students attend classes on Loyola’s Water Tower campus, according to a marketing brochure from Mid-America, which also represents Loyola. And the site isn’t far from North Michigan Avenue, where Chick-fil-A may hope hungry shoppers will make a detour for one of its chicken sandwiches, Crain’s reports.
