Michael Rose

Michael, please. Not Mike.

I was born and raised in Chicago. Even though I have not lived in the “Big City” since 1992, I still consider myself a Chicagoan (Go Bears!).

Other than listening to music, I love to cook. Most weekends you can find me in my kitchen creating something. Nothing fancy, just something out of the ordinary. If you check out my blogs I will occasionally post a recipe I have created. Of course, I had to wire speakers in to my kitchen so I can have music playing while I create. Preferably some Jazz selections – Stanley Turrentine, Charlie Haden, Vince Guaraldi, and the like.

When I am not cooking, you can either find me curled up on the couch watching a movie (Blues Brothers, Mr. Holland’s Opus, Goodfellas, Casino), or in my car just driving around.

Schedule

M-F 6:00 am - 10:00 am

Illinois License Plate Renewal – No More Mailed Notices

Everywhere I have lived, I would receive a notice in the mail reminding me that my license plate sticker is about to expire. It's not like your drivers license, where the expiration date is typically your birthday. So getting these friendly reminders in the mail is a good thing.

There were numerous crews working on Maine Street that day, consisting of members of the Chamber plus student volunteers. Each of them did a wonderful job of bringing Maine Street back to normal.
