(Heather Cherone) Thirteen city employees have been disciplined for their role in a scheme that blocked off a street near the United Center so their friends and relatives could park for free during Bulls and Blackhawks games, Inspector General Joseph Ferguson said.

Inspectors working for the city’s watchdog staked out 16 games at the United Center from April 2015 to February 2016 — including nine Blackhawks playoff games — and witnessed employees of the Office of Emergency Management allowing 62 cars to park for free on the west side of Wood Street between Madison Street and Warren Boulevard, Ferguson said in his quarterly report released Monday.

Report: South Florida Officials to Make Drivers ‘Suffer’:

(Jeff Tavss) If getting stuck in South Florida traffic doesn’t make your blood boil, learning that public officials are behind it all will do the trick.

The Sun-Sentinel reports that officials are hoping that traffic becomes so bad that commuters will eventually ditch their cars to walk, ride a bus or take a train to wherever they need to go.

And the report says the officials are completely aware of driver frustration.

“Until you make it so painful that people want to come out of their cars, they’re not going to come out of their cars,” the newspaper says Anne Castro, chair of the Broward County Planning Council, said during a meeting last year. “We’re going to make them suffer first, and then we’re going to figure out ways to move them after that because they’re going to scream at us to help them move.”

(Thomas Zambito) The pulverized remains of bodies from the World Trade Center disaster site were used by city workers to fill ruts and potholes, a city contractor says in a sworn affidavit filed yesterday in Manhattan Federal Court.

Eric Beck says debris powders – known as fines – were put in a pothole-fill mixture by crews at the Fresh Kills landfill on Staten Island, where more than 1.65 million tons of World Trade Center debris were deposited after the Sept. 11 attacks.

“I observed the New York City Department of Sanitation taking these fines from the conveyor belts of our machines, loading it onto tractors and using it to pave roads and fill in potholes, dips and ruts,” Eric Beck said.
