At various times Monday and today, Ald. Danny Solis, the police and demolition crews have shown up at the Whittier School Fieldhouse, which is currently being occupied by parents trying to keep the building standing to serve as the school's desperately needed library. Anne Elizabeth Moore has been reporting from the scene on Twitter and telling the story on her blog.
