A “Get Gephardt” investigation that aired on KUTV earlier this week alleges that Jason Poirier took money from at least three people seeking contracting services, and then never finished the job. Two homeowners interviewed in the KUTV segment paid Poirier $6,000 to finish their basement, they said, while another traded a hand...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

In certain neighborhoods in Chicago, it means something very different. For the second year running, Chicago saw a spate of violence over the long holiday weekend that would generate headlines if it happened in Kabul. “It’s Groundhog Day here in Chicago” is how Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy put it.
