The Cubs and local Ald. Tom Tunney (44th) are at odds, yet again, and the home opener at Wrigley Field is still more than three weeks away.
This time, the point of contention is the “tent and curtain” over a parking lot – located at 1102 W. Waveland near the local firehouse – used by Cubs players, their wives and family members.
In each of the last three seasons, Tunney signed off on the tent permit, allowing the Cubs to provide a higher level of security for their millionaire players.
That allowed super-stars Anthony Rizzo, Kris Bryant, Jon Lester and their teammates and family members to arrive and depart the stadium without being hounded by autograph seekers, hecklers or pick-pockets.
