Police response time

It's sad that I'm resolving to the fact that calls to 911, for incidents at Olympia Park, seem unimportant. I wish we had the coverage we deserve.

  • What are the incidents?

  • CWCEdisonPark Olympia Park

    Fireworks aimed at houses, dragging the park garbage containers from their car at 2am, misc items stacked in the middle of the park that appear to be stollen lawn ornaments. If it's just kids being kids, no problem. If it's destruction I call. Now, I don't.

Airplane noise meeting

Anyone have any information on the O'Hare noise meeting that happened this afternoon? all I saw was pictures from Ald. Napolitano's Facebook. No summary or anything, just looking for more information than the DNA article I read.

  • It's because Napolitano did not have any influence on the meeting. I would look to a representative from FAiR or Senator Mulroe for answers.

South Shore Residents Protest Police Violence After Man Shot Dead by Police

A weapon was recovered on the scene, and no other injuries were reported, police said.Though morgue officials listed his home address in West Pullman, neighbors on the 7000 block of South Merrill Street said he lived near where he was shot. 

  • The whole story would be nice, of course. I am sure that there are many more details to this story. Was there violence before the "shooting", did the man run from police, did he threaten police or others... so many questions unanswered....

  • So many racists to raise questions about police murder.

Old Carson Ribs

Does anyone know what is going to be built where the old Carson Ribs was on Harlem Ave.? It's been vacant for a long time and now there looks like some activity going on there.

  • Ralph Johnson Retired

    Thanks Monte! One billion!? Wow. My wife asked why didn't the owner give the business to the three kids. I met one of them during a supplier business transaction. What a J.O.!
    A b\illion! Wow. A store at the old Carson's would not be good for everyone's waist line :)

  • He said neither of his kids had any interest in it....however, from experience, I have seen many a great businesses fall because the next generation didn't or never worked to keep it fresh. Just took the money. Another words, soaked the business and didn't care for the employees, It was...

    He said neither of his kids had any interest in it....however, from experience, I have seen many a great businesses fall because the next generation didn't or never worked to keep it fresh. Just took the money. Another words, soaked the business and didn't care for the employees, It was all about them. Typically its the third generations that starts it off. Maybe because they grew up with a silver spoon up their you know what....me? If my father had a business that I was interested in, I would of ran with it and do better than he.....it would have become a challenge to me in order to succeed as well as he did providing for his family.

Edison Park

By far the best neighborhood in this great city.

  • I had a neighbor build a three car garage property line to property line and the front to property line of the alley. The Alderman and city were of zero help. This thing is hideous!

    Bet they still park in the street!

Starting new post as last one went viral....

Please contribute to this post by informing neighbors of the situation who were unable to attend the EP community council meeting where FACTS were discussed by the business owner and residents.

Business owner and residents discussed that there are excessive barking with 50 dogs at a time on the premise. Business owner called it FUN swimming in a pool, etc a portion was seen on ABC footage. Someone at the meeting passed around a videotape with the LOUD barking noise. This barking primarily occurs from 7am-3pm on Monday-Friday so please take note on timing. However, owner provided no SOLUTIONs on LOUD barking. As a business owner, you need to address concerns/issues on how your business negatives impacts the community.

NOISE is not the only issue with this business. In addition, the owner needs to address waste removal both frequency of garbage pick up and washed onto Avondale. Another health concern for the neighborhood especially across from a park/residential area where kids are playing and other dogs are walking.

Could someone post a video of the excessive barking for those who haven't heard it?

  • CWCEdisonPark Olympia Park

    Thanks Grammar

  • The situation is still odd. No one can say where she's getting all these dogs from and none (?) are neighborhood dogs. I didn't see anyone from EP coming forth to say they use her service.
    Not that it matters much, but do the owners know this is where/how the dogs ate being kept?
    Still too many strange things there.

Medical Marijuana Clinic Does Not Belong Near Superdawg, Residents Say

Many in the standing-room-only crowd at Olympia Park, 6566 N. Avondale Ave., said the dispensary would make the already congested intersection of Nagle, Devon and Milwaukee avenues worse, attract criminals to the area and lower the value of their homes.

This article has 4 other Chicago locations (Show)

Union Group of Illinois wants to open a dispensary in a vacant storefront at 6428-30 N. Milwaukee Ave. The firm was one of two groups to win a state license to operate a medical marijuana dispensary in Jefferson Township, which includes most of the Far Northwest Side.

Many in the standing-room-only crowd at Olympia Park, 6566 N. Avondale Ave., said the dispensary would make the already congested intersection of Nagle, Devon and Milwaukee avenues worse, attract criminals to the area and lower the value of their homes.

The proposed dispensary would be 2.6 miles from the other medical marijuana dispensary on the Far Northwest Side near Lawrence and Milwaukee avenues. Curative Health has the approval of both the state of city to open a dispensary at 4758 N. Milwaukee Ave., but has yet to open.

Another community meeting about the Norwood Park medical marijuana dispensary is set for 6:30 p.m. July 23 at Oriole Park, 5430 N. Olcott Ave.

  • Weed and a Superdawg sound like a great pairing.

Question

I'm really trying to reach out to the community more and get folks to come enjoy a show more. I know with BlackHawk's games, etc we're a bit of a tough draw! :)

I'm newer to the neighborhood and just bought a place in Park Ridge nearby.

Any suggestions I'd really appreciate it. Suggestions on where to advertise more, anything really!

Thank you,
Tim Whitzell, Partner, WIP Theater

  • One more thing..so I'm going to sound really old though I'm not that old

There's another one coming up that will start at 9pm which I'm really going to try and see. But for the most part that's late. If my husbands working the next day (on CFD) he won't either. So are the comedians always on that late?

  • The WIP Theater Your Local Theater!

    yeah comedy shows are always at 10pm. On occasion we have a one-off show on a Thursday that would be earlier, but the 8pm slots on the weekends are set for our playhouse events. Plays, musicals, etc.
