News of events of the Chicago-area diaspora seem to have a hard time
making their way east of the shores of Lake Michigan or west of the Cook
County line.  Rumors have swirled regarding fissures in Chicago area
diaspora organizations, specifically the Illinois chapter of UCCA and also
the causes of what looked to be a disappointing Chicago Diasporan
reception for Ukraine President Yushchenko's April 2005 visit.

An article by Orest Baranyk and Maria Shcherbyuk in the June 12th 2005
issue of the Weekly (available in the print edition only) titled "Illinois
UCCA holds annual meeting, hopes to heal rift within community" tried to
deal with the noise and the rumors regarding the Illinois UCCA chapter
(perhaps creating more noise of its own).  Clarification and an indication
by Bohdan Bodnar of how dire the Illinois UCCA situation is was published
as a Letter to the Editor in the July 10, 2005 edition of the Weekly. 
Bohdan Bodnar's letter is now available online in its unabridged form.
