    75 CPS schools now have tested positive for lead
    Chicago Public Schools has 75 elementary schools with amounts of lead in their drinking water that have tested above federally acceptable standards. That's about 18 percent so far of the 422 grade schools run by the city's school system. CPS released the updated numbers after 8 p.m.

    Water supply mains beneath Chicago streets contain no lead. But the service lines which connect a building to the large water supply main beneath the street generally contain lead. Corrosion inside lead pipes will release lead into a building's water. But Chicago water treatment plants add corrosion inhibitors to the water supply to build up a coating inside pipes which prevents the release of lead. Unless the service line to a home has been damaged or disturbed in some way, damaging the protective coating, there should be no lead getting into a home's tap water. Flint, Michigan's water supply used to be lead free because they routinely added corrosion inhibitors. Because of escalating costs Flint switched their water supply from more expensive Lake Huron water to less expensive Flint River water. What they didn't test for and find out was that Flint River water was more than eight times more corrosive. On top of that, Flint stopped using corrosion inhibitors when they switched from Lake Huron to the Flint River. Corrosion started throughout the city and lead began escaping into the water supply. That's what created their problem and health scare - incompetent water treatment and false cost savings.

Flyers taped to garages

anybody have flyers taped to their garages on Monday? our whole alley had them. i didn't see the person/people doing it, but if you do i suggest you call the cops. there is no reason for them to walk down the alley doing that and taping stuff to our garages.

the ulterior motive is that these people are walking down the alleys and looking at garages/houses.

they have this problem in Garfield Ridge on the Southside

so...just a heads up and if you see people doing this, just call so the cops can get rid of them

STOLEN ITEMS

Hi Neighbors,

Yesterday (7-10-16) our trailer was burglarized. We are located on Northwest Hwy nearest to Oliphant. We own a local landscaping business and some of our equipment was taken. They took backpack blowers, toolboxes filled with power equipment. The backpack blowers were orange and black (echo brand) with a tie dye sticker on the bottom. The toolboxes were black and yellow with a very large metal handle. These were filled with all DeWalt power tools. If you have any leads, or saw anyone suspicious with these type of items please contact the 16th District or our business directly at 773-712-2628 or facebook.com/abenepropertypreservationspecialists. Thanks for your assistance!

    How do these buildings get approved when the neighborhood is not notified....the Community meeting which meet every 2nd Wednesday of the month at EPI's isn't posted publicly..why is everything hushed. Items such as these should be on the Alderman's web at the very least. Our past mayor sold the soul of the city with his parking meter solutions, among other things, our current mayor has helped to sell the tranquility of our town with airport expansion, and now the heart of Edison Park is to be broken by allowing these new developments,some which are being represent by past zoning alderman's relatives, to push the ugliness that can only come from over development, onto Edison Park's residents. The City of Chicago has taken the middle-class, the working people, and made it only a faded memory. This city has used us as the doormats to help line the pockets of not only their own, but that of their friends, and still beat you down with another way to make you pay. I believe after growing up and raising a second generation, it is time to say good bye to something that use to be so unique, a neighborhood. You can not fight City Hall. No indeed, for they will probably tax you for this service..forgive me they do already...

I wanted to post I have had great luck finding some workman for my home projects on this site. First it was Mario for the drywall, great job, then it was Louis for the ceramic tile (250 sq. ft) another great job. He showed up on time every day and did an excellent job. I`ll be hiring him again for my bathroom. Mario #773-865-7884 Louis #872-301-2247
