Ms. Sheree Bynum

Sheree’s All Over The Place: Hello beautiful people! How do you win with losses? How do you win when you have been defeated so many times? How do you thrive when you are stuck? How do you catch a break when every time you look up your children are not behaving the way you raised them, your account is already overdrawn when another automatic payment hits (insert tears), and your gas hand is on empty again (insert expletive)? With so many “L’s” stacked against you, it’s hard to believe a “W” is in the cards. Well, let me reassure you…it is!

The way you win with loses is – you don’t quit. If you quit, then you are sure to maintain a losing record. However, if you keep going and don’t give up you will win. It’s a numbers game. You never know how close you are to succeed. It could be today. The next call, text, or email you receive could be the one you’ve been waiting on. Remember your “WHY.” Write it down: Call it petty, but if you need the motivation to keep going, just look at the successful people that you believe are less talented, creative, and smart as you are – they didn’t quit…and neither should you! – Sheree Bynum, Managing Editor

COVER STORY

Barack Obama Congratulates Chicago Sky

Managing Correspondent: Sheree Bynum

Former President Barack Obama tweeted “it is especially sweet being from Chicago” when the Chicago Sky basketball team advanced to the WNBA Finals on Wednesday night. Led by Naperville native Candace Parker, they defeated the No. 1 seeded team, Connecticut Sun 79-69 in game 4 of the semifinals.

This is the second time the Chicago franchise has made it to the finals. The first was in 2014. The team left it all on the floor with Courtney Vandersloot scoring 19 points, Kahleah Copper putting up 18 points, and Parker adding a total of 17 points, nine rebounds, seven assists, two blocks, and two steals.

“WNBA All-Star” and “WNBA Champion” Candace Parker was the veteran vocal leader of this young team

Obama isn’t the only public figure giving props to Parker and the Chicago Sky. The contest garnered a lot of fanfare and support from Chance the Rapper, the team, and staff members from the Chicago Blackhawks, Chicago Bulls, Chicago Red Stars, and Chicago Bulls icon Scottie Pippen. They were all in attendance at Wintrust Arena cheering on the women’s basketball team coached by James Wade.

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot has also chimed in about Sky’s victory. She believes overall the media coverage for the Sky is not comparable to men’s basketball teams. Lightfoot said it is an example of gender bias and called it frustrating – especially, with the Sky headed to the finals. Seems like Chicago Sky is commanding everyone’s attention. Hats off to them as they continue to dominate and stay healthy heading into the finals – way to go!

They also led in steals (100) and finished second in the league in free throws made (181), rebounds (424), and blocks (49).

The Chicago Sky secured a general manager and head coach by rewarding Coach Wade with a multi-year deal through the 2025 season on Thursday. “I feel like I found a home,” Wade said in a press release. “I am excited to lead this franchise to what we hope will be many successful seasons to come.” Wade was also named the 2019 WNBA Coach of the Year. Chicago plays against the Phoenix Mercury today, October 10, in Game #1 of the 2021 WNBA Finals at 2:00 p.m. (3:00 p.m.) on ABC. – The TRUTH

BOOK OF THE WEEK

48 LAWS OF POWER By Robert Greene

Amoral, cunning, ruthless, and instructive, this multi-million-copy New York Times Bestseller is the definitive manual for anyone interested in gaining, observing, or defending against ultimate control – from the author of The Laws of Human Nature. In the book that People magazine proclaimed “beguiling” and “fascinating,” Robert Greene and Joost Elffers have distilled three thousand years of the history of power into 48 essential laws.

The 48 Laws of Power draws from the philosophies of Machiavelli, Sun Tzu, and Carl Von Clausewitz and also from the lives of figures ranging from Henry Kissinger to P.T. Barnum. Some laws teach the need for prudence (“Law 1: Never Outshine the Master”), others teach the value of confidence (“Law 28: Enter Action with Boldness”), and many recommend absolute self-preservation (“Law 15: Crush Your Enemy Totally”). Every law, though, has one thing in common: an interest in total domination. In a bold and arresting two-color package, The 48 Laws of Power is ideal whether your aim is conquest, self-defense, or simply to understand the rules of the game. – The TRUTH

Kanye & Drake Bury Beef to Free Hoover

Chicago native Kanye West and Canadian rapper Drake have joined forces to get Larry Hoover, 70, out of prison. He is known as the co-founder of the 1970s Chicago Gangster Disciples.

Hoover was about 22 years old when he was sentenced to 150-200 years in prison for a murder conviction in 1973. In 1997, Hoover was found guilty of additional charges of money laundering, extortion, conspiracy, and operating a criminal enterprise from behind bars. He is serving six life sentences.

LARRY HOOVER

Hoover claims to have renounced his criminal past and is now an advocate for peace in Chicago. He attempted to rebrand GD to mean “growth and development.” Hoover is housed at the United States Penitentiary Administrative Maximum Facility in Florence, Colorado.

This year a federal judge denied the former gang leader a break in his sentence. West was unable to convince former President Trump to pardon Hoover in 2018. Apparently, that has not deterred the controversial artist from continuing to fight for Hoover’s release. – The TRUTH

HEADLINE

Chicago Fire Exhibit Curator

The Chicago History Museum’s “City on Fire: Chicago 1871,” which opened Friday, offers the wide-angle images of a blaze that destroyed some 18,000 buildings, but it also encourages a closer, more personal look on the 150th anniversary. “Imagine losing your home or your business; It’s gone but you still have the key. What would you do?” said Julius L. Jones, the exhibit’s curator.

chicago fire

The exhibit seeks to kill off for good some of the myths surrounding the fire, including that Mrs. O’Leary’s cow started it and that the city wasn’t prepared for it. “Chicago was prepared for the fire. All the preparations failed. That’s a somewhat different thing than being unprepared,” Jones said. The city had one of the most “elaborate alarm systems, the latest technology in the world,” Jones said. One of the elegant 1871 alarms is part of the display.

“They had a professional fire department, a steam engine pumper … but the fatigue and destruction of equipment that comes from fighting multiple fires every day in Chicago really led to the conditions that caused the fire to have the time to grow and have a life of its own,” Jones said. The museum is planning for the exhibit to remain open at least through August 2025. – The TRUTH
