The new chief looks a lot like the old chief, as William McManus announced he would be coming back as SAPD Chief, a mere 9 months after retiring and taking a job with CPS Energy.

We take the community's pulse on their new chief.

Also on the program we talk about the University Interscholastic League hearing surrounding John Jay High School, which proved to be a bit of a snoozefest. 

While media and officials hoped it would start to settle the controversy of the "Hit Heard Round The Country," but none of the involved parties were present. The UIL did ban now former John Jay Assistant Coach, Mack Breed, who had an attorney present. Referee Robert Watts sent an attorney in his place.

Finally, the City Manager Sheryl Sculley has been emailing police higher ups about ensuring homeless people are cleared from the area surrounding her downtown residence. It has generated a lot of buzz, but with police contract negotiations continuing everything should be viewed through a political lens.
