The Tribune has this bizarre service where you can receive email notification of obituaries. It's free, so go ahead and list that 7th grade teacher who called you fat. Might come in useful for registering votes too (this is Chicago after all). More useful and less morbid might be allowing subscriptions to the town's police blotter or engagement announcements.
