Marina City, the city within a city best known for its iconic corncob-shaped towers. The residential towers were completed in 1963 and since have been featured in high-profile roles, including in the 1980 Steve McQueen movie "The Hunter" — in which a car plunges from the tower into the river during a chase — on the cover of a album and more recently as the backdrop to Nik Wallenda's 2014 daredevil tightrope walk across the Chicago River. photo

People pick up children after two girls were wounded by gunfire near Warren Elementary School in Chicago on Friday, June 16, 2017. Children had been celebrating the end of the school year with water balloon fights, hot dogs and volleyball when some of the children saw a black car circling the school before a dozen shots were fired. “We didn't stand a chance,” one shooting victim told her dad. A 7-year-old and a 13-year-old were both taken in serious condition to Comer Children's Hospital. Terrence Antonio James/Chicago Tribune

This two-pound coyote pup, nicknamed “Peace,” is the only one of six pups that survived battery and drowning at Penny Road Pond in Barrington, Illinois. Peace, held by animal rehabber Dawn Keller on Wednesday, is being cared for at Flint Creek Wildlife Rehabilitation. The Illinois Department of Natural Resources is offering an $8000 reward for the arrest and conviction of the person or people responsible. "It was a heinous wildlife crime," said Sgt. Jed Whitchurch, IDNR's supervisor for this region, referring to how a fisherman found a burlap bag in Penny Pond, and when he fished it out of the water, there were seven one-pound coyote pups just a few weeks old that all looked dead. photo

Scroll for story > Eddie Bolden pulled his car into the driveway of his aunt’s house, unlocked the front door and went inside, punching in the code to turn off the security alarm before removing his jacket. For Bolden, who spent 22 years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit, an unlocked door means everything. It was a year after he was exonerated by the state of Illinois of his conviction in the 1994 fatal shooting of two men on the South Side. Bolden, now 47, sat at the kitchen table in his aunt Brenda Lee’s west suburban home and talked about readjusting to life out of prison, including what it was like to see his grown children. “That was the first time I got to hug them as men outside of the prison wall. It wasn’t the same dry greeting that I got in prison, but they were actually happy. Actually happy,” he said. Tribune photographer Erin Hooley followed Eddie for over a year to see how he’s adjusting to life outside. LINK to full story in profile.

Saul Arellano supervises a group of children during lunch at The Barreto Boys and Girls Club around the corner from his apartment in Humboldt Park, where he works after school. Saul gets a boost every time a stranger recognizes him on the street, pinches his cheeks and calls him "Saulito." It reminds him of the Chicago community that raised him. A decade ago, Saul's mother, Elvira Arellano, became a lightning rod in the nation's immigration debate when she sought sanctuary in a Humboldt Park church while fighting her second deportation back to Mexico. Her son, born in the U.S., has joined her as an immigration advocate.. On Friday, Saul is set to fulfill his mother's dream of seeing her son graduate from high school. He hopes to attend Northeastern Illinois University in the fall where he plans to pursue a career fighting for justice. "People actually believe in what we're doing," said Saul, now 18. "That's all I need, just one person who believes that I'm doing something right." Photo by Abel Uribe/Chicago Tribune

Since experiencing record low marks in January 2013, Lake Michigan has gained a remarkable 4 feet. Forecasters predicted a slight decline in lake levels this summer compared to last year, but the resurgent waters have exceeded expectation thanks to rainy April, in which Chicago saw twice as much precipitation than normal. The lake new high-water mark has swallowed up gobs of beach recreational beaches along Illinois’ shoreline and created an opportunity for taller, stronger waves to accelerate shoreline erosion. With forecasts suggesting Lake Michigan waters could remain high through the next six months, lakefront communities and residents will likely be on guard for powerful autumn storms that could cause damage to the lakefront.

Che “Rhymefest” Smith performs at the Chicago Blues Festival in Millennium Park on June 9, 2017. A Chicagoan himself, Smith won both a Grammy and an Oscar for co-writing "Glory" on the "Selma" soundtrack, as well as a Grammy for Kanye West's 2005 hit "Jesus Walks." "I could make more money (if I moved)," Smith said in an interview with Tribune’s William Lee. "Why would I go to a place of wealth that already has it? Why would I build up a city that's already built? My home is in need of people like me ... people better than me....I don't think there was anybody who was born and raised in a town that didn't think about leaving, didn't get close to leaving, or didn't leave. The important thing is: What have you given back to the place that has created you?” Photo by Chris Sweda/Chicago Tribune BluesFestival ian

They suffered the horrors of the Holocaust and the destruction of their families — and lived to tell the story. Sam Harris, Estelle Glaser Laughlin and Mitchell Winthrop have gone through personal anguish to put their experiences to paper, each writing a haunting memoir. Each author is a member of the Speakers’ Bureau of the Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center, and they’ll talk about the process of writing their memoirs at the 33rd annual Printers Row Lit Fest at 3:30 p.m. Sunday at Jones College Prep, 700 S. State St., Room 4038. Sam Harris, 82. Excerpt from: “Sammy: Child Survivor of the Holocaust,’ by Samuel R. Harris (Szlamek Rzeznik) with Cheryl Gorder “Suddenly from nowhere a soldier yelled, grabbed me by the arm and held his revolver right in front of my eyes. I was shaking frantically, filled with fear. Looking into his eyes, I saw the most cold, reptilian look I had ever seen in a human being.” Mitchell Winthrop, 90. Excerpt from: “The Arrival: I Sought God in Hell,” by Mietek Weintraub (Mitchell Winthrop’s original name) “In the anteroom, they inform us that we are in the shower barrack and must disrobe and leave all our belongings and clothes on the floor, right where we stand, keeping nothing but our belts and shoes. … I suddenly realize that my knapsack with the diary I kept in the ghetto, my treasured stamp collection, and my favorite family pictures may be lost forever. I must save the photos to preserve the memories just in case we’ll never see each other again.” Estelle Glaser Laughlin, 87. Excerpt from: “Transcending Darkness: A Girl’s Journey Out of the Holocaust,” by Estelle Glaser Laughlin. “I raised my eyes to the sky in hope of finding an inspiration, a way out. The sky hung there in the indescribable glory of a myriad stars, just blinking the fact that ‘the universe just is.’” photos
