Blackhawks Donate Hockey Rink To NW Side, But Neighbors Blindsided By It

Michelle Molise, who lives in the 7100 block of North Odell Avenue, said moving forward with the project without waiting for the sewer project to finish could put her home at "imminent flood risk."

    Ald. Faces Heat Over Donated Blackhawks Hockey Rink; Flooding Feared
    EDISON PARK - On May 8, neighbors near Brooks Park, 7100 N. Harlem Ave., were gobsmacked to learn they'd be getting a state-of-the-art roller hockey rink at no cost to taxpayers, courtesy of a fully baked arrangement between Ald. Anthony Napolitano (41st) and the Chicago Blackhawks.

Honking in alley

The alley behind my house has a "no through traffic" sign. Every day (especially between 6:30-9:00am, and from 5:00-11:00pm) cars drive 15-20mph through the alley and honk because they dont want to stop at the intersection in the middle of the alley. 1st) if drivers don't live on that street, why do they think they can ignore the "no through traffic" sign? 2nd) why do people think it is ok to wake up people sleeping 15 feet from their horn? people have infants taking naps. is there a way to get police to observe this alley and pass out tickets for using the alley illegally?

  • Valerie Joy Norwood Park East

    I honk and stop at the end of my alley. It's saved me from at least a couple accidents. I was always taught to drive slow, stop at the end of an alley and honk before proceeding.

  • If you ask anyone from any other city in the US, they all stop at the end of alleys, look both ways, and slowly proceed. This is enough to never get in an accident your whole life.
    The problem in chicago is people abuse the horn. They drive 20 mph...

    The problem in chicago is people abuse the horn. They drive 20 mph through alleys, slow down to maybe 5 mph and honk because they dont want to wait. The horn becomes a tool for speed. Chicagoans don't care about their neighbors sleeping, and jusify their selfishness with "i dont want to hit some stuped driver who isn't paying attention"... why not just fully stop, look both eays, slowly proceed??? Why be so rude to wake everyone up? Cops/nurses/docs work overnight, and sleep during the day too.

    The other problem is people use alleys for shortcuts (even if signs say "no through traffic").

    Illinois Senate Passes 'Sanctuary State' Proposal
    CHICAGO, IL - The Illinois Senate passed a bill aimed at encouraging cooperation between undocumented immigrants and state law enforcement agencies while discouraging unwarranted cooperation between federal immigration. The Trust Act, sponsored by Senate President John Cullerton (D-Chicago), passed 31-21 Thursday and will be taken up by the House this week.

    Being a sanctuary city or state helps law enforcement. It ONLY means that the local police will not ask about legal status when they talk to victims and witnesses. If legal status is being checked then victims will not report crimes and/or witnesses will not come forward even if they have legal status but family or friends do not out of fear. These policies increase community participation with law enforcement.

  • If I have info/evidence regarding a crime, I will get slapped with obstruction of justice charges if I withhold info or testimony. People who ignore our rules and laws to get here are being ggiven more privilege and liberty.
    What the heck is wrong with this picture???

Filming on Northwest Highway

Does anyone know what the Essanay Studios truck is filming on Northwest Highway. It is parked across from the new Starbucks, just east of Harlem.

  • Brushman4 Serving the best since "53"

    Maybe they're making a Starbucks movie, or doing a documentary on they're extremely outrageous prices.

    Oh wow, I did not realize this. Harlem and Addison has beautiful homes as well.
    But I agree with you EP has a lot more to offer. Parks, schools, restaurants and seems to be close net community. Many Officers and fireman families.
    I've been on the look out on an MLS, but haven't really seen anything that we wouldn't have to completely remodel.

    Have you seen those gorgeous , condos on NWY? A few years old I believe
