While one of city's LGBT weeklies, Chicago Free Press, crumbles under unpaid wages and an exodus of senior staff, Gay Chicago magazine (more of an entertainment guide) has picked up Free Press writer, Amy Wooten and editor, Gary Barlow to head their hard news feature, "Gay Chicago Newswatch," as elections loom. Meanwhile, Chicago Free Press has no intention of ceasing publication.
