  • JRMD, it never fails to amaze me that people who will argue with the drugstore clerk for 20 minutes over a 50-cent coupon will stay completely silent about issues affecting where they live, to the point where they won't call 911, won't text, nothing. When it comes to calling 911 and contacting aldermen and park superintendents, it's almost always one or two people on a block who do all the heavy lifting. Everyone else? As the Little Richard song says, "All their lips were tight".

  • After 9 years in South Shore I get it. All of it. To those of you leaving, I am sorry to see you go. To those of us staying, let's do what we can. I call 911 every single time there is an incident. I am now attending block clubs...

    After 9 years in South Shore I get it. All of it. To those of you leaving, I am sorry to see you go. To those of us staying, let's do what we can. I call 911 every single time there is an incident. I am now attending block clubs and CAPS meetings. Get to know your neighbors and get a phone tree going. I would also recommend letting CAPS know about problem buildings where criminals stay. Then, let's actually elect Aldermen who care about the community. It is true that Sandi Jackson was frequently in DC when she was supposed to be working for us. However, after a recent spike in crime @ 79th and South Shore, Rahm- appointee Natasha Holmes declined to get involved and called it a "police matter." Are you joking, Alderman?
