In local news news, some updates that don't have to do with local institutions cutting or dying:

* The Trib is kicking off a local blog network, ChicagoNow, in the near future; Da Bears Blog explains their relationship with it. Here's a good Twitter feed to follow for updates.

* A local financier is putting together a bid for the Sun-Times Media Group.

* Four local TV stations will be pooling footage (technically, this counts as cutbacks, I guess).

Maybe it's the weather?
