The upcoming Bronzeville Association for Recreation with Canines planning meeting is next Saturday (11th) at 1:15pm at the Mandrake Park Field House.

The agenda includes:
- Adoption of our Bylaws and updated Articles of Incorporation for how we operate as an organization
- Select a Board of Directors
- Select Officers for BARC
- Discuss proposed locations
- Any other topics people want to discuss

At the meeting we can discuss adjusting the Bylaws for things like the number of Directors (need at least 3) and the officers (Chair, Vice Chair, Treasurer and Secretary are current placeholders). Otherwise there are items in the Bylaws that are fairly standard and/or needed for 501c3 qualification. We've worked with a lawyer (pro bono) to get these drafts in a good place, but are open to suggestions to improve them.

Someone who sits on the Board can also be an Officer. The Board is more general oversight of BARC, while officers are more hands on making things happen.

If you would like to learn more or simply stay closer in the loop of what's happening with the Bronzeville Dog Park, then send an email to bronzevillerecreationcanines@gmail.com to get on the email list or like us on Facebook (link - https://www.tinyurl.com/bronzevilledogpark)

British Press Says Chicago is Murder and Mayhem

Very good to see our police chief doing some solid, take downs of violent gang bangers, ex cons this weekend. Well done.

It's still reality that parts of Chicago very near to Hyde Park, Kenwood and Bronzeville are suffering historic near early 1990s levels of murder and mayhem.

This is embarrassing my neighbors. Let's work with the police, work with the Trump administration, work with the Attorney General Jeff Sessions, work with the FBI to do what is necessary to cut our shootings and murder rate by ~ 85% as was done in LA and New York City. Yes, we must work to protect Bill of Rights civil liberties. But, let's just do the basics.

This is embarrassing our British/English cousins across the pond are noticing how *$*#@ things are here in Chicago.

    Chicago homicides outpace 2016 records
    There have been 99 homicides in Chicago as of Wednesday - figures that were not recorded in 2016 until two days later, according to the Chicago Tribune 2016 marked the deadliest year for Chicago in two decades with 762 homicides The total number of people who were shot in 2017 - 495 as of Wednesday evening - has also surpassed last year's figures by more than 60 people President Donald Trump tweeted on Thursday night: 'What is going on there - totally out of control.

A Very Strong Slate of 4th Ward Candidates

Amidst all of the leaflets/flyers, candidate’s forums, door knocking, journalist reporting and self promotion efforts emerged such a strong slate of candidates for 4th Ward Alderman that I wish that we could take the best of each and roll them into one for the benefit our neighborhoods.

Running for office is not for everyone. These individuals placed themselves and their families at center stage, wide open to harsh criticism from the media, neighbors, peers and even family and friends. They’ve...

Amidst all of the leaflets/flyers, candidate’s forums, door knocking, journalist reporting and self promotion efforts emerged such a strong slate of candidates for 4th Ward Alderman that I wish that we could take the best of each and roll them into one for the benefit our neighborhoods.

Running for office is not for everyone. These individuals placed themselves and their families at center stage, wide open to harsh criticism from the media, neighbors, peers and even family and friends. They’ve spent countless hours in the spotlight and on the hot seat. No public place has been sacred ground where charterer and motives were not questioned.

As we enter the last days of this race, please VOTE if you have not already and let’s take time to celebrate all five of these candidates that will remain our 4th Ward neighbors, friends and leaders long after the race has passed.

Thank you, Sophia, Ebony, Gregory, Gerald, and Marcellus. You are truly the 4th Ward’s fantastic five!
