You morons speeding down my street

Yep, today was street cleaning day which empties 1 side of Overhill ave between Touhy and N/W Hwy. Take away the obstacle of cars parked on one side of the street and the morons will do 40+mph. Slow down fools!!!

  • I spoke with the alderman and she said everybody shot down the idea of tree planters in the intersection, we need speed bumps at the least, overhill is the super highway from touhy to northwest hyw, this is not safe!

    You're right lets correct you

    Let's get a couple of laws straight:

    Bicyclists are permitted to ride two abreast down the road in one lane.. WRONG

    9-52-050 – Bicyclists must ride single file, exceptions; bicyclists may ride two abreast when riding two abreast does NOT impede the normal and reasonable movement of traffic.

    Bicyclists are entitled to the full use of a lane. And again WRONG

    9-52-040(c) Except as otherwise provided in subsection (e) of this section and bicyclist upon the roadway at less then the normal speed of traffic at the time and place shall ride as near as the practicable and safe to the right hand side of the roadway

    Four years later, court rules city right to issue man $100 red-light ticket.

    More than four years of legal back-and-forth over a $100 traffic ticket came to an end Tuesday when a state appeals court found the City of Chicago was correct in citing a man who ran a red light in Lincoln Park in September 2010.

    Bohdan Gernaga ran a red light at the intersection of North and Halsted on Sept. 21, 2010. Two months later, he was issued another red light ticket at the same intersection, according to a state appellate court opinion.

Mary O'Connor and her dirty tactics.....

Today I received a post card from signed by the wife of a friend of mine encouraging me to vote for her. When you start asking people to go through their rolodex and send out HAND WRITTEN postcards begging for votes, that puts strain upon friendships. On top of everything else, the postcard CLAIMS she has made major investments in local schools, parks, and infrastructure. First of all, she has added a HUGE gymnasium to Edison School, which it did...

Today I received a post card from signed by the wife of a friend of mine encouraging me to vote for her. When you start asking people to go through their rolodex and send out HAND WRITTEN postcards begging for votes, that puts strain upon friendships. On top of everything else, the postcard CLAIMS she has made major investments in local schools, parks, and infrastructure. First of all, she has added a HUGE gymnasium to Edison School, which it did not need. Secondly, the beautification of parks was something the current mayor put into effect the first year of his administration, which O'Connor had NOTHING to do with. That was the mayor's doing, not her's. And thirdly, my street has YET to be paved....it is a virtual NIGHTMARE to drive down. Infrastructure my butt. The postcard also states "she's been given the strength to lead and deliver for our community". She neither leads, nor, delivers. She is just a Rahm brown nose. So to Laurie Nowack, save the postage, we support the right MAN for the job. O'Connor has no clue how to handle the largest ward in the city of Chicago. She is way over her head.

  • I will say this again...having a business in the ward you represent is wrought with opportunity for corruption, cronyism and special favors granted...Ms. O'Connor can't leave fast enough!!!

  • And her campaign workers go around stealing Napolitano's yard signs.

Edison Park single family home unit sales up 40%, median price up 12%

The lowest priced home to sell is 7755 W Columbia, Chicago IL 60631 for $220,000.  The foreclosed raised ranch may have had a "squatter" situation creating risk and downward pressure on the price of the home.  It still sold fast.

The highest sold homes by far this quarter is 6850 N Olcott, Chicago IL 60631 for $895,000. This was also the highest priced home sold in the first quarter (year to year) over the past 5 years. The custom built new construction home sits on a 50' double lot.
