Old Chicago is still happening. It is not the building right on the corner though. Old Chicago will be a bit farther north of that building, is my understanding. I'm working on getting an update on everything that is going into the other building. Thanks.

Good memory. I was reading an old article as part of this, and I think it said it is was where Taco Bell is today, or maybe Taco John's. Don't remember which one.

As a point of clarification, Douglas County is unable to send any inmates to the Johnson County Jail. JOCO built a big jail several years ago, and then didn't fill it up like expected. However, they don't accept inmates from Douglas County. We wrote about that here: http://www2.ljworld.com/news/2018/feb...
Also, the numbers in our story are for all inmates in the custody of Douglas County, whether they are housed in the Douglas County Jail or housed via contract at another jail.
Thanks, Chad

As a point of clarification, we don't have more people going to jail. Arrests are down since 2010. The amount of time people are staying in jail is up, which has contributed to the overcrowding issue. We wrote about this issue a few months ago. http://www2.ljworld.com/news/2017/may...

Yes. You are correct. I forgot about Jazz.
Thanks.

Yes. It is net job growth, so it factors in jobs that are lost too. Thanks.

My understanding is the gas pumps at the Lawrence Avenue store would continue to be owned by Dillons, but all the Kwik Shop stores would be part of the sale. Thanks, Chad Lawhorn, Editor.

Just to be clear, this is the statement that ICE has now withdrawn. The new statement does not mention the "misdemeanor criminal charges." That's explained in the article. Thanks, Chad Lawhorn, Editor.

Steve: As proposed, the sales tax does not sunset. Thanks, Chad
