Surprising Stuff

Chicago Title.
“This little piggy went to market…” It’s about time that this little quietly run Chicago operation located on Center Street got some attention. This title company made it through the Chicago Fire, and that is one of their biggest claims to fame. What would be shocking would be information that Chicago Title made good on any of the title problems that arose from that disaster. Having gotten hold of one of Chicago Title’s title insurance policies, Geneva Shore Report X-Files investigators are poring over it to see how it reads and the preliminary results are coming in. It would appear, at first glance, that a title police written by Chicago Title is worth about what you can get for the paper that the title policy is written on. So much for blushing first appearances. Instead of simply reading the document and giving out opinions about it, however, next week the GSR is going to be coming back in print with the results of one claimant and the directly quoted provisions of his title policy that cost him thousands. Readers can come to their own conclusion when the actual wording of the title policy is presented. It’s not going to be rocket science, but the effect might well be the same as standing under the nozzle of rocket exhaust when the thing is ignited.

Luis Pizza.
The new name for Louie’s Pizza, located out on the south side of Lake Geneva (Intersection of South Shore Road and Willow Road), is going to reopen in early May. Luis and his wife Laura are going to offer pizza and other foods. The menu remains unset as of this writing, but the entire GSR staff hopes that the menu will be slanted toward genuine Mexican food.
