Need Tuckpointer Suggestions

Can anyone recommend a tuckpointer?

  • Our building has successfully used Arrow Masonry.

  • We've used James Mangan of masonryworks.net about two years ago to tuckpoint a two-flat building and replace some lentels. The building looks great today. He was a one-man operation at the time we hired him. Took him longer, but he was priced much more reasonably.

GANG TAGS Alley between Rockwell and Tallman, 4700 block

Saw this today. Thought this was LK turf. Hope this doesn't presage some stupid fight.

  • Karen in Irv Pk hood Lived in neighborhood 12+ years

    Thanks everyone - we all need to continue to be diligent with reporting all tagging to all the places listed above, 311, city, your alderwo/man. Getting it cleaned asap sends a clear message to the gangs that we are paying attention to their stupidity and they are not welcome to stay!

  • Agreed Karen!!!

Disturbance at 2800 Lawrence and Unmarked Squad Car Response

I was biking south down California ave last night around 8 o clock and when turning east on Lawrence noticed several people in the middle of the street. It appeared as if a couple in their 30s or 40s was following an enraged teenager/young adult. The teenager was screaming profanities and when a car slowed down to pass by him he began punching the driver through the open window.

I was being honked at from behind to keep moving and I didn't want to get assaulted so I proceeded east on Lawrence when several blue unmarked SUVs with blue lights started screaming westbound. There were at least three of them.

I've never noticed this police vehicle type before, is this new? Were they staking out the area due to previous disturbances (like the stabbing)? Did anybody else witness this or know what caused it or the aftermath?

  • Bill Near Rockwell L

    No, that's what the officer told me. Not 4-wheel or all-wheel, just plain 2 wheel drive.

  • Ravens Yes.I can fix that.

    What IDIOT approved that purchase.
