Oriole Question

Can anyone enlighten me as to what kind of construction they are doing on Oriole by Edison Park School? Also, why is it taking months to finish (besides the fact that they chose the worst time of year to do it)?

  • PattyM Concerned Citizen

    Our daughter lives near there. The city started sewer repair and found the original pipes from the 20s so they decided to do a more extensive job.

  • our church has flooded ever since they did a "more extensive job" Good Luck

US Post Office Delivery Stinks

Our mail on isham street arrives after six most nights and some nights is not delivered. I understand its a difficult job but us mail get more people to do the job so we can get our mail in a timely manner

  • CWCEdisonPark Olympia Park

    Great suggestion for those not receiving bills in the mail. Pay on-line or at least receive your bill notification on-line and pay by check. Save a few trees in the meantime. It works well for me.

  • We don't care what time we get our mail as I mentioned in the above comment. I'm a senior that doesn't sit in my window and wait for the mail, but if I wasn't getting my bills ( I pay most on line) I guess I would. With that said, I am truly grateful for our mailman and I do let him know verbally and with a little, "token" at Xmas.

Good Bye Edison /Norwood Park

A three year resident of Edison park I recently packed up and moved . I took a 50k hit on my house and moved due to the horrible airplane noise. This was a result of the new runway that went in service in late October 2013. Next year it going to get worse with the opening of a new south runway. The final build out is schedule for 2020 will put an estimated 1.1-1.5 million flights over the Northwest side...

A three year resident of Edison park I recently packed up and moved . I took a 50k hit on my house and moved due to the horrible airplane noise. This was a result of the new runway that went in service in late October 2013. Next year it going to get worse with the opening of a new south runway. The final build out is schedule for 2020 will put an estimated 1.1-1.5 million flights over the Northwest side per year. No one is getting sound insulation except for Ebinger School. The Alderman and Mayor could care less about the quality of life for the people living on the NW side. Nothing will beat the money O'hare makes for the City. Edison/ Norwood Park is a great area filled with great people. Thank for a wonderful three years .

  • Teresa Groat Resident of Old Norwood

    My major complaint centered on the classroom size when my sons were attending Norwood Park. Old news since they've long graduated and are in community college, but I was wondering whether the average class size still approaches 40?

  • The noise doesn't bother me much. In fact you could consider me a contributor as I fly out if Ohare at least 30 flights a year. I've lived in EP for decades as have a lot of my friends and no one really complains about aircraft noise. The newer aircraft...

    The noise doesn't bother me much. In fact you could consider me a contributor as I fly out if Ohare at least 30 flights a year. I've lived in EP for decades as have a lot of my friends and no one really complains about aircraft noise. The newer aircraft have quieter more fuel efficient engines which lowers polluting emissions.
    What bugs me most about EP is the lousy Snow plowing, speeding motorists cutting thru the hood, inattentive Alderwoman (just as useless as the former Alderman) and the ridiculously expensive parking on Northwest Hwy.

Orthodontist Recommendations

Looking for a good, yet reasonable ortho.

  • robin in WRP misanthrope

    It's a bit of a haul for you, but we love Dr. Andrianopoulos!! When my daughter's former orthodontist became ill half-way through braces, we switched to her based on numerous recommendations (including a neighbor who is a dentist); her price to finish the work was very reasonable. We also like her office staff. My daughter's braces have been off for four years, and people often tell her how beautiful and straight her teeth are (this always seems odd to me, but her teeth are beautiful!) http://www.yelp.com/biz/andrianopoulos-efi-dds-chicago

  • Dr. Steven Marshall, he's on Avondale (corner of Harlem, in the same bldg as Peryam and Kroll). He was great and significantly less expensive than most in the area. You see the orthodontist on every visit - as opposed to many practices where you see only the dental assistant. He spends ton of time with each patient and you can usually get appointments outside of school hours. Loved him.
