Cicero Life

Cicero Life is an online magazine dedicated to the past and present residents of Cicero. Those of us who’ve called Cicero, “home” at any point in our lives know that the mention of our town in the media or world at large often comes with stereotypical flaws and a failing to capture who we really are. This is our place to tell our side of the story, instead of the story that’s told about us.

Our goal in developing this online community is to bring together residents, both current and former, to share stories and experiences. More than anything, we want to capture the truth of being “from a neighborhood”, because there’s such a great story there – the good, the bad, the weird fits of black humor, and sometimes the noble in unexpected places. Our story isn’t so different from any other “neighborhood” across the country. It just has its own brash sense of humor and an unforgettable accent.

"Our Aunt Soinsuch from Cicero has been passing down her advice to us for years and she has graciously agreed to do the same for the readers of cicerolife.com. She delivers no bullshit wisdom without pulling any punches, though she’s broken a few wooden spoons and can hit a moving target with a shoe from around the corner." [...]
