Son finds parents stabbed to death inside North Austin home.

abc7 Chicago. Sunday 18 June 2017.

A son discovered his two parents stabbed to death inside a home on Chicago's North Austin neighborhood, police said.

He found his 67-year-old father and 69-year-old mother fatally stabbed in the 1400-block of North Leclaire Avenue and contacted police at about 1 a.m., police said. They have been identified to the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office as Johnnie and Shirley Ervin.

"Mrs. Ervin, she was a good woman, a Jehovah's Witness, God-fearing woman and Mr. Ervin was an upright man, took care of his family and everything," said Kevin Newson, who knew the victims.

      It could be the biggest news for Chicago since the Cubs won the World Series: Elon Musk's Boring Company won a bid to build an express train to O'Hare Intl. Airport. 
      But this is not your average train:
      You'll board a pod-like electric vehicle (called a "skate"). These cars will carry 8-16 passengers, leave every 30 seconds, and travel up to 150 mph in underground tunnels. Here's what a station might look like:
      This contract is a game changer
      For Chicago...
      As any Chicagoan will tell you, getting to da airport from da downtown "Loop" is a nightmare, whether yer taking the L train (~40 minutes) or sitting in traffic. The plan here is to whisk you out to O'Hare in just 12 minutes. And for Musk...
      Winning this bid adds legitimacy to a company that he started as a hobby just a year and a half ago.  Now go reward yourself with a Bean selfie, Elon. But there's still a long way to go until this thing actually gets built.

      Anyone who regularly takes the el or subway has seen them.
      They stand quietly smiling with carts of religious publications, out on the sidewalk when it's nice out, and in the "unpaid" area of the station near the Ventra machines or turnstiles when the weather is inclement. The women are dressed modestly but sharply, and the men look natty as well, often wearing sport jackets and fedoras.
      They are volunteers from the Jehovah's Witnesses, a Christian denomination that claims 8.4 million members in 240 countries.
      Though I'm not interested in converting, I sometimes stop and say hello and pick up a copy of The Watchtower or Awake! out of courtesy, since I find their cheerful vibe oddly comforting. They're certainly more agreeable than the Old Navy Street Preacher, who hangs out at Randolph and State railing against fornicators and cigarette smokers.
      But not everyone appreciates the Jehovah's Witnesses' presence at transit stations. Kevin Havener, an Edgewater resident who often commutes via the Red Line, contacted me to share a message he sent to the transit authority, to which he says he never got a response. He claimed that the Witnesses' practice of offering literature inside el stations violated a guideline in the agency's Rules of Conduct warning against the distribution of written materials on CTA property.
      "I find this inexplicable permission deeply, personally offensive," Havener's message read. "Would the CTA allow other religious proselytizing [by groups] such as [Orthodox Jews], or Buddhists, or Hare Krishnas? OF COURSE NOT."
      Havener eventually revealed to me that he has a horse in this race. About a decade ago he and other members of the Buddhist Peace Fellowship, an activist group, wanted to hand out leaflets inside the Fullerton el stop in Lincoln Park. When they asked the CTA customer assistant for permission, they were told they needed to be out on the public sidewalk far away enough not to block any station doors. "That made perfect sense, and that's what we did," he said.

      Founded in 2013, Farmer’s FridgeÂ’s fresh salad machines, with salads starting at $7, are now in place across Milwaukee and Chicago–and the company is looking to expand.
      In one of his first jobs after college, Luke Saunders happened to take a sales job that required driving 1,000 miles a week through Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, and Kentucky. Dinner, most of the time, meant fast food. Lunch might be a bag of chips or a soggy burrito from a convenience store. Saunders realized there needed to be a better way to access healthy food anywhere.
      In 2013, he launched the first prototype of a solution: a vending machine that would serve fresh salads, restocked daily, with kale, spinach, quinoa, and other vegetables, grains, and fruit layered neatly in glass jars. The first location, next to Dunkin Donuts and McDonald’s in a food court in downtown Chicago, was soon getting five-star reviews on Yelp.

      Event to draw thousands, generate an estmated $750,000 in spending
      ROCKFORD — The City Council this week agreed to forgo nearly $50,000 in parking revenue to lure the Convention of Jehovah’s Witnesses back to town after an 11-year absence.
      Rockford Area Convention & Visitors Bureau President and CEO John Groh said his office went “out on a ledge” and months ago promised free parking for convention attendees to help seal the deal. Had the City Council not approved the measure Monday, the RACVB may have had to go back to event organizers, eaten the cost of parking, or gone to corporate partners to ask for help paying it.
      Groh said the City Council showed that Rockford values the group’s business. And he said the risk was worthwhile because of the potential economic return for the city. It is expected to draw 15,000 attendees over three weekends, generating an estimated $750,000 in spending at hotels, restaurants and venues.
      “Rockford has more hotel rooms and Rockford is family friendly,” Groh said. “It has museums, parks and restaurants close to the hotels. And the progress and momentum in downtown Rockford is a much different picture in terms of restaurants, shops and general vitality than it was 10 years ago.”
      Attendees are expected to visit from Milwaukee, Madison, Kenosha and Racine, Wisconsin, and Dubuque and Davenport, Iowa, as well as the Rockford and Chicago areas. Daily sessions of the convention — called “Don’t give up!” — are free and open to the public beginning each day at 9:20 a.m. July 28-30, Aug. 4-6 and Aug. 11-13 at the BMO Harris Bank Center, 300 Elm St.
      The group last met in Rockford in 2006. The event left for DeKalb — where a Spanish-language convention is still planned — when the BMO Harris Bank Center underwent renovations a decade ago.
      The City Council’s vote to subsidize parking shows that Rockford values the Jehovah’s Witnesses convention, said Peter Arthurs, a volunteer spokesman.
      The convention will feature talks, interviews, short videos and a three-part feature film, all focused on biblical advice and guidance for how those feeling discouraged can “enjoy life and gain confidence in a better future,” Arthurs said.
      Alderwoman Venita Hervey, D-5, was the lone “no” vote on waiving the $5 a day event parking fee that would total an estimated $48,750 for all three weekends. Hervey said the fees are there to defray the burden placed on property taxpayers for the cost of parking.

El encontró a su padre de 67 años de edad ya su madre de 69 años de edad, apuñalados fatalmente en la cuadra de 1400 de la avenida North Leclaire y se puso en contacto con la policía a las 1 de la madrugada, dijo la policía.

Una presencia policial masiva descendió en la escena y los oficiales acordonaron el área con la cinta roja del crimen. Miembros de la familia llegaron tratando de consolarse mutuamente tras la tragedia. Los vecinos describieron a la pareja como miembros amados de la comunidad. "La señora Ervin, era una buena mujer, una testigo de Jehová, una mujer que temía a Dios y el señor Ervin era un hombre recto, cuidaba de su familia y de todo", dijo Kevin Newson, que conocía a las víctimas. Las circunstancias y el motivo detrás de las puñaladas no se conocen. La policía de Chicago está investigando y nadie está bajo custodia.

      Tonight it's very clear
      'Cause we're both lying here
      There's so many things I wanna say
      I will always love you
      I would never leave you alone

      Sometimes I just forget
      Say things I might regret
      It breaks my heart to see you crying
      I don't wanna lose you
      I could never make it alone

      I am a man who will fight for your honor
      I'll be the hero you're dreaming of
      We'll live forever 
      Knowing together
      That we did it all for the glory of love

      You keep me standing tall
      You help me through it all
      I'm always strong when you're beside me
      I have always needed you
      I could never make it alone

      I am the man who will fight for your honor
      I'll be the hero 
      You've been dreaming of
      We'll live forever 
      Knowing together that we did it all
      For the glory of love 

      It's like a knight in shining armor
      From a long time ago
      Just in time I will save the day
      Take you to my castle far away

      I am the man who will fight for your honor
      I'll be the hero that your dreaming of
      We're gonna live for ever
      Knowing together
      That we did it all for the glory of love

      We'll live forever
      Knowing together
      That we did it all for the glory of love
      We did it all for love
