Post Office On Northwest HWY

Do I live on the Northside? Yes, Yes I do, so why when I drive past the Post Office it looks like a vacant building? The grass/weeds are almost 3 feet in some places. Do they NOT own a lawn mower? Can our Alderman go and have a chat with the owner or the building? I keep my lawn looking nice.

    I've been thinking this for a long time. It is not surprising however, as they conduct the delivery of the mail the same as the upkeep of the property. And don't tell me that the landscaping is not in the budget.... so what if it isn't .... have a little pride and get the staff out there and it would be cleaned up in a couple of hours. A little work, a little pride, a little commitment to the community. It looks terrible and the manager of that station should be ashamed of the condition inside and outside.

  • I just called the alderman's office. If we all keep calling, something will be done eventually I hope

I feel that the people who send there pets there need to know that they are putting the dogs in danger because no matter what the weather they are outside with no shelter from heat sun rain cold and soon to be snow.
I get so mad everytime i walk past. Ive tried to look in and you cant see anything. This only proves they are trying to hide somet hide something. Why is the sign missing?
It makes me sick. I emailed ald.Napolotono hopefully he will do something soon
I do know she had a place someplace else had to close and thats why shes here. The old place was A dogs world.

Guitar lessons

I'm interested in taking beginner guitar lessons. Anyone recommendations?

  • gotts1 Block Party Planner

  • Jillian Kegley Northwest side parent, interested in local life.

    We are looking for someone to provide in home guitar lessons on the weekend if anyone knows of someone. My 13 yr old son had lessons at Old School, but it would be good to have someone come to our house as my husband may want instruction as well. Any freelancers out there?

  • Michael Mroz, the music teacher at St. Juliana, just emailed that he will teach advanced drums, guitar, and bass guitar; as well as beginner to intermediate piano. Should you have any questions about in-home, weekly, summer music lessons for your child (1st through 8th grade), or are already interested in giving it a go, don't hesitate to reach out: Mroz.michael1@gmail.com. He would probably welcome adult students, too!

  • Bob in Edison Park Retired Firefighter

    Values in Edison Park are similar to Harlem and Addison area. Not to knock that area, but Edison Park has a lot more to offer that there or even Oriole Park area. It`s my opinion I`m not trying to offend anyone else`s neighborhood. When a ranch here goes for 300K something is wrong.

  • Bob
    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

Rebuilding Home Addition

In search of a contractor or company that does additions onto homes. We have a Georgian style home that has a addition already, but in need of updating or possibly a tear down and rebuild. Does anyone have any recommendations of anyone in the area that is reputable for doing this kind of work?

  • Stand Up Desks will Improve Learning for our Active Students

    Mrs. Naumowicz is asking for $703.95:
    My students need 2 stand-up desks to have the choice of standing or sitting when completing assignments. If given the opportunity to use a stand-up desk, I know those children who require movement and walks would be able to focus more during a lesson. They would be moving their legs and body while standing at their stand-up desk.

    Edna Thomas, left tribal land for new life in Chicago, dies at 89
    Edna Thomas was one of many Native Americans who migrated to Chicago when factories were humming and hiring after World War II. It was an era when old-timers would say: "If you can't get a job in Chicago, you're not trying."
