Students may have noticed the hustle and bustle around Loyola University Chicago’s Dumbach Hall this afternoon as a TV film crew set up outside to shoot a few scenes of the hit CW TV show Supernatural’s spin off pilot episode.

The pilot episode of “Supernatural: Bloodlines” will be a backdoor pilot. This means that it will air in “Supernatural” as a regular episode (Season 9 episode 20).

The spin off  “Supernatural: Bloodlines” has been filming in Vancouver. The show is in Chicago to film exterior scenes to be used in the episode.

The protagonists of the show are Ennis Roth (Lucien Laviscount) and David Hayden (Nathaniel Buzolic). Roth, the son of a cop, becomes a monster hunter after his fiancee gets killed. Hayden is a shapeshifter who gave up the monster life until the death of his brother pulls him back in.

Signs warning students that filming was in progress were posted around Dumbach Hall as were photo release signs. Students were allowed to watch the filming process from a short distance away. Background actors were positioned all around Dumbach Hall’s exterior.

When filming wrapped at around 1:40 p.m. students asked and were allowed to take photos with actor Nathaniel Buzolic.

“Bloodlines” would begin filming its first season in July if it gets the green light.

Moore: Rogers Park Jewel could open in 60 days

Posted by loyolastudentdispatch on March 7, 2014

Rogers Park Ald. Joe Moore said a new Jewel Food Store could open in his neighborhood within 60 days.

Moore, the 49th Ward alderman, is revealing more details about Jewel Food Store’s plans to occupy a shuttered Dominick’s Finer Food store in Rogers Park.

Jewel’s parent company, New Albertson’s Inc., announced  Thursday that it is acquiring five Chicago area Dominick’s stores, including the one at 1763 W. Howard St. in the Gateway Centre shopping plaza in Rogers Park.

Dominick’s announced in December that it was closing all 72 of its stores, selling off many to Jewel, Mariano’s and Whole Foods.

Loyola University Chicago students, who frequented the three Dominick’s near the schools Roger’s Park campus, now have several choices: the Jewel in Rogers Park, and two stores in Edgewater which were separately purchased by Mariano’s and Whole Foods.

Moore, the 49th Ward alderman, released this letter to constituents outlining more details of Jewel’s plan:

Dear Neighbor,

I am pleased to report that Jewel-Osco will open in the grocery store space formerly occupied by Dominick’s at Gateway Center. Though a formal opening date has yet to be announced, I am told the new Jewel could be up and running within the next 60 days.
.
This is the best possible news for our neighborhood. The Jewel-Osco chain is a well-established full service grocery store and serves people of all economic means, which makes it a perfect fit for our very diverse neighborhood. I couldn’t be more thrilled.
I’ve been a member of the Mayor Emanuel’s Grocery Store Task Force, a 20-member committee consisting of industry experts and representatives of City departments, agencies and organized labor to identify potential new grocers for the City’s shuttered Dominick’s stores. The task force made the Gateway Dominick’s one of its three top priorities.
.
Deputy Mayor Steve Koch, who chaired the Committee, played a pivotal role in convincing Jewel to consider the Gateway site. He and the other task force members knew it was important to my community and me that we secure a grocery store of Jewel’s caliber and broad appeal. As a result of the Task Force’s efforts, Jewel commenced negotiations with Safeway. The negotiations reached a speedy conclusion and resulted in a signed agreement last Friday.
.
I will let you know of the Grand Opening date as soon as I find out. In the meantime, let’s celebrate the good news!
.
Sincerely,
Joe Moore

Loyola meets Bradley at Arch Madness

Posted by loyolastudentdispatch on March 6, 2014

Loyola University Chicago’s Men’s Basketball team makes its inaugural  appearance tonight at Arch Madness, the Missouri Valley Tournament, which will help determine which teams will be eligible for the NCCA Tournament.

Tenth-seeded Loyola plays against seventh-seeded Bradley at 8:35 p.m. in St. Louis.

.

Bradley took both games from Loyola during the regular season, pulling away late for a 63-54 win in Chicago on Feb. 6 before breaking open a two-point game at halftime in an eventual 55-38 victory on  Feb. 22 in Peoria.

Loyola would have to win the Arch Madness tourney outright to make the NCAA Tournament.

Undefeated Wichita State is the Arch Madness favorite, and even if the Shockers were to be upset, the team will still receive an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament.

Coverage of the Loyola-Bradley game will be available at Comcast Sports Net Plus and on audio through the Ramblers Athletics website.

Loyola marks Ash Wednesday with tweet retreat

Loyola University Chicago is marking Ash Wednesday by inviting people to a tweet retreat.

Here are the details from a university news release:

Loyola’s Institute of Pastoral Studies is launching a new Twitter campaign this Lenten season. The Institute’s Twitter account will share a note of reflection or prayer each day from March 5 (Ash Wednesday) through April 20 (Easter Sunday).

 
The campaign will provide followers with a mini retreat each day of Lent. The content will include simple ways to give back, challenges to abstain from something for the day, and ideas on how to quiet our daily lives and reflect. The goal is to inspire followers to make Lent a more personal, daily reflective journey.
 
“The hope is that our followers will use these tweets as an access point for Lenten reflection,” said Brian Schmisek, PhD, director and associate professor of Loyola’s Institute of Pastoral Studies. “There are many opportunities to reflect during Lent, but we are providing a unique and easy way for our Twitter community to take a step back in today’s fast-paced environment.”
 
In addition to the Twitter campaign, the Loyola community will be joining Jesuits around the US for “Moved to Greater Love,” a nine-week, online series of Lenten/Easter daily reflections, focusing on four specific graces: Gratitude, Spiritual Freedom, Vision, and Joy. To learn more about “Moved to Greater Love,” visit LUC.edu/mission.
 
To receive the Lenten tweets, please follow @LoyolaIPSon Twitter, or follow the #IPSTweetRetreat hashtag. For more information about Loyola’s Institute of Pastoral Studies, visit LUC.edu/ips
