    Thank YOU Christopher of Estes...For making my point.

    You do not know who "aims to murder" and who does not. And making sweeping assumptions about a group and acting upon those assumptions based on nothing more than paranoid speculation is like reading a portion of a manifesto by Joseph Stalin.
    Fortunately, your opinion is shared by a minority in this country.

    Why thank you. Can we all agree that certain gangs operate with the intent to do harm to others, and that having guns on public ways should be illegal. Especially if they are unregistered. The definition of a gang, according to the dictionary is - any gathering of 2 or more people. This can mean a church group, classroom, or gathering of congress. When the gangs commit felonies or other crimes, that is indeed the crime. To assault and disrupt the way of life for honest, hardworking citizens, is illegal. I do not always agree with certain laws, or the actions of some politicians as long as it follows the constitutional rights of all citizens, and those visiting from abroad.

    I do think the involvement of a police state, or big brother society can make things worse of course. I saw Robocop and Nonstop and do acknowledge the inherent sin that breach of technology incurs. I know enough about computers to know that anyone can make up a fake identity to do harm to others. Unfortunately with the recession many are doing this to prey on the hopes and dreams of those looking to make a better life for themselves. I rarely do business with any place before doing a thorough check on how they handle disputes, because money does not grow on trees.

    I think that police agencies should ditch the marked and unmarked squad cars for used Nissans or Chevys and go truly undercover. I think the concealed carry law was a big mistake, as it was not fully defined before it became a law. Unless we all either decide to quit our day jobs to become police officers, or police ourselves we need to go over each law and see how it can potentially harm someone.

Shooting on Greenview?

I just happened to be walking home from the Morse red line when I saw CPD had like 20 squad cars on Farewell & Greenview with the whole block and intersection cordoned off. It looks as if someone just got shot. Am I correct in that assumption? If so, anyone have any info?

  • Ingvald Doing my part to do no harm

    2 young male's were shot. Earlier today in the alley that runs parallel to Morse and from Farwell to Morse shots were also fired.

  • Okay. Because this shooting looks as if it happened recently. Like around 10:30. They had Pratt to Farewell blocked off on Greenview. No police in the alleys. And there was what seemed to be a body in the street on Farewell. So possibly a separate shooting?

  • D Hype yes there was 2nd shooting on Farwell and Greenview recently 2 people where wounded.

Blue on Blonde, Part 1: Most Likely You Build Your Way (and I’ll Build Mine)

1631 W. Farwell, Rogers Park – opened in 1964. This site follows a familiar historical arc for the time period – in April 1963, a doctor living at this address passed away. In August, the “old house” and its lot went up for sale for $26,000. Thirteen months later, the new building was ready. 

 1534-1536 W. Farwell  Avenue, Rogers Park – Chicago; opened by 1968. Builder: Louis Bender.

1322 W. Chase Avenue, Rogers Park – Chicago. Opened 1965, by Birger Construction Co., replacing a converted house previously on the site. Birger also did  an apartment building at 7621 N. Sheridan that uses the same corner-pier vocabulary, but in reddish-orange brick. 

1322 W. Chase Avenue, Rogers Park – Chicago. Opened 1965, by Birger Construction Co., replacing a converted house previously on the site. Birger also did  an apartment building at 7621 N. Sheridan that uses the same corner-pier vocabulary, but in reddish-orange brick.

1615-17 W. Touhy, Rogers Park – Chicago. Doesn’t appear in the classifieds until 1971, which would make it rather a latecomer, but would also perhaps explain the unusual gabled roof.

7418 N. Oakley Avenue, Rogers Park -Inside, 6 apartments: three 1-bedrooms and three 2-bedrooms. No word on the builder, but in 1963 it was owned by the First National Bank of Skokie.

2700-2704 W. Pratt Avenue, West Ridge – Chicago. A 15-apartment building opened by 1967; builder David Schultz, who also built the blue-toned one across the street.  Familiar elements include the piers, the grid of rectangles, and the open rectangles over the entries.

Kenmore Place, at 6012 N. Kenmore – a 4-Plus-1 near Loyola University. Appears to have opened 1958, which if correct would make it the oldest building in this set.

Suit: City weed ordinance should be deemed unconstitutional

The Wards, who own a residence in the 1700 block of West Morse Avenue, argue that definition of a weed is unclear and leaves property owners open to the possibility of “personal predilections” of city inspectors.

  • Bruce Mayberry, Roger Parkansas

    They are correct this is a revenue gathering tool and has nothing do with aesthetics, health or safety, but rather is being used as a tool to collect revenue.
