A Garden Grows in Bronzeville, and Now Restaurants, Too

“This has been like a Rubik’s Cube, and we have been waiting for the pieces to click into place,” a senior U. S. administration official who was involved in the Iran negotiations told reporters on Tuesday. In recent days, President Barack Obama had stayed in touch with his negotiating team, which included Secretary of State John Kerry, Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs Wendy Sherman, and Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz, via secure video... On Monday, Obama received word from White House staff that Iran, the United States, and its negotiating partners had reached a final agreement. The president and Kerry spoke by phone, and Obama congratulated the team, some of whose members have been in Austria working on the deal for weeks, pausing only to sleep (and not that much), officials said. Monday evening, Obama called congressional leaders to inform them that the deal would be formally announced Tuesday morning, Washington time, and in the coming days, the president and his staff will be discussing the agreement with lawmakers in... Another senior administration official who was involved in the negotiations said that Iran must adhere to United Nations.
After five years of sponsoring the Bronzeville Community Garden at 51st Street and Calumet Avenue, Loyd is now almost ready to launch the Bronzeville Cookin' venture of restaurants and food stores across the street and on the other side of the CTA... "There's lots of food in this community, but mostly it's junk," Loyd said. So providing good, healthy food has been the aim of the community garden, to the point where a sign on a wall along a vacant lot on the Bronzeville-Washington Park border asks: "Do you want a community center without walls. Latrice Williams, who has served as manager of the garden since its inception five years ago, said there are about 50 "garden regulars" who meet to tend the plants or just play chess or dominoes on an almost daily basis. "I've seen members of the garden community out here 300 days a year," Loyd said. The garden was originally intended to provide an intersection point for a community Loyd describes as "highly segmented economically. " From the corner of 51st and Prairie Avenue, just down the street, he pointed to a relatively new condo, an older rental six-flat, an equally old high-rise offering low-income housing and a senior center just down the street. According to Loyd, those disparate segments of the community rarely have occasion to interact, especially in a rough neighborhood he said is a "challenge" sometimes to police.
Since declaring her candidacy for president, Hillary Clinton has “cleared a couple of important hurdles,” Ben LaBolt, President Obama’s 2012 campaign press secretary, tells USA Today. What the press still fails to appreciate about Hillary Clinton is that she’s not running for president, she’s running as president, and all the usual rules about when and how she should speak don’t apply to her.
