Andersonville's Beloved Water Tower To Benefit From 'Estate Sale'

The Swedish American Museum, 5211 N. Clark St., has raised more than $120,000 to restore the iconic tower, which was taken down after a brutal winter in 2014. But the effort still needs an "extra push," said Joelle Scillia, director of marketing for the chamber.

The drop-off location will be in the Trumbull School parking lot, 5200 N. Ashland Ave., from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Scillia said.

    Hey Autum. At BrynMawr/ Kenmore. Lived here 5 years. Previously at Foster and Sheridan, 7 years. Ive seen a few things good and bad. Be aware of your surroundings Go online and get yourself a pair of cut resistant gloves like chefs use, a bright led aluminum flashligh that will fit in your hand and won't slip with a lanyard to fit over your wrist. The citizens of Bryn Mawr and Edgewater are great, but the bad people that come off the Redline are prowling for weak and easy targets. Also the local thugs of which are many. If youre walking at night don't be nervous and show fear. If you think someone is following you, cross the street. If they cross, cross again. Watch for cars. If you see a police car dont hesitate to wave furiously at them and yell POLICE LOUDLY. . A very bright led light will temporarily blind someone at night long enough to get out of a jam. The gloves are self explanatory. Defensive wounds from a knife slash are deadly. A good hit across the head on someone holding you down from a aluminum flash light really can make a difference. Take some basic self defense courses, It improves confidence as well. Bad guys don't attack confident people unless the gains outweigh the risks. Some may think I'm overly paranoid, but paranoia is a survival skill. Better to survive then not. Now the good news, the beaches are awesome, the restaurants are great, the community theatres are fun. As someone mentioned, go to CAPS meetings, if possible, get involved in the community, if feasible, but more importantly, get to know the beat cops, by first name. They are friendly and they do help. 99% of the people in Edgewater are fine, upstanding hard working citizens, It's the 1% you have to be extremely cautious about. Don't get bummed, be prepared for what may never happen. My special needs son, my wife and I love Edgewater. It's the bad guys that we loathe. Hope this helps, Peace.
