Nearly two months after the Chicago Current ceased publication, the launch of Early and Often, a subscription-based political news service covering Chicago's 2011 mayoral and aldermanic elections, was announced by the Chicago News Cooperative, AlderTrack and Mike Fourcher. It'll cost you $150 to read their stories when it launches Oct. 4.
