Chicago ChronicleChicago Chronicle | Current Chicago News & Illinois State Headlines
The Chicago Chronicle was first published as a newspaper on May 28 1895 serving the Chicago and surrounding areas. It was the only morning newspaper at the time and supported the Democratic party, although this changed in subsequent years. The Chicago Chronicle closed after publishing its final issue on May 31 1907, after a history of 12 years almost to the day. This new version of the Chicago Chronicle, which began publishing on September 11 2002 is essentially a local Chicago online newspaper, but with a national and international perspective, designed to provide readers with a one-stop shop for Chicago, national US, regional, and world news coverage, weather and sports information, with live updates on breaking business stories, and what's happening in the financial markets.
The biggest advantage we have is that we are an online newspaper, which means we are constantly refreshing our stories as more and more information comes to hand. Often when a story breaks the initial details are sketchy.
We and our sources around the world work hard to gather more information, verify facts, and provide a perspective of the major stories. Expert opinion often accompanies our articles to better inform readers, and provide a more complete understanding
of the news we deliver.
Financial markets and business reports are regular features as we pin down what's happening, and constantly refresh stock market indice readings, dollar currency rates, and breaking business news reports. Our world sports coverage is a priority, as is our regional news.
We like to think if you're looking for breaking news out of Chicago, Illinois, the United States, or the world, you'll look for it first at the Chicago Chronicle.
A man from Chicago rode Ferris Wheel for more than two days - 384 times, up and around - to break the existing world record.
Clinton Shepherd, a park operations manager of Chicago's Navy Pier, who spent 48 hours, 8 minutes and 25 seconds riding Navy Pier's Ferris wheel over the weekend, said that he thought that Chicago - birthplace of the ride - should have the title, People magazine reported.
Shepherd was allowed by Guinness World Records to have one five-minute break every hour.
He played video games and watched James Bond and Batman flicks to stay awake during the ride.
Shepherd's gondola on the ferris wheel was outfitted with a big-screen TV, cushions and curtains.
The previous record of riding a ferris wheel was 30 hours and 35 seconds. (ANI)
