Article from Taste of Park Ridge - 200 teens gather and attack a man

I know this is Park Ridge, but it seems to be the norm for any fest in the area. Every year during Edison Park Fest, teens gather at Olympia Park in such great numbers it's unbelievable. Last year, a few kids threw beer cans at us while we were sitting in our front yard. and later damaged our fence. They also overturned the large dumpster by the Park District building. I hope it's controlled this year. This article is disturbing - http://www.myfoxchicago.com/story/26034602/teens-charged-with-attacking-man-near-taste-of-park-ridge

    I think this is the reason why Norwood Park has NOTHING as far as neighborhood fest. Because not only most of the residents don't want to have anything but the idiots that ruin events like this.

    Someone just told me they heard the Fest organizers will be requesting a $5 donation to assist with security. Hope these requested funds assist in avoiding damages, trash in the neighborhood etc and not just patrols on the Fest grounds and repaving parking lots for the valets to park cars...

Dumpster on Oliphant and NW Hwy

Is this for the former Larsen Drug/Ruby D and Me?

    The unofficial rumor I've heard from a waitress at the curragh is that they are remodeling the space to move their breakfast café Lexi Lou to.

    I have also asked the construction guys working and they said they're working on a breakfast place.

    Once again these are just rumors that I've heard.

Wanted: TV Antenna Installer

I have decided to ditch my $100 cable bill and just get an antenna instead - nothing beats free HD TV. I'm looking to get a TV antenna installed on our roof - or possibly in our attic. I want someone who is experienced and knows what they are doing. I don't want any leaks in our new roof, I don't want the antenna blowing off or bending in the wind, and I want the antenna cable properly grounded.

Any recommendations?

    Based on my research, there is no such thing as an HD specific antenna. Antennas are still exactly the same as they always were - they will pick up whatever signal is being broadcast. What really changed is that TVs need to have a tuner to interpret the new digital data that are now in that signal. All modern TVs can do this. 'HD' is just something antenna marketers put on the box to sell their antennas. With my "HD" antenna, I get about 30 channels, too. (Some are in HD, some aren't, but all are digital.) The major stations have several sub-channels with different content, which is really great. They are listed on my TV for example as 2.1, 2.2 etc.

    The problem with CBS is that it is being broadcast on VHF. All the other Chicago channels are broadcast on UHF. Most indoor antennas that you can buy at places like Best Buy will only pick up UHF channels. Or maybe they will get the VHF, too, but not very well. That is the case with that Terk antenna I bought from Best Buy. The Terk cost about $50 several years ago. The new Flatwave antenna I bought at Home Depot was only $30-35. The Flatwave gets CBS pretty well. (CBS signal strength on Terk = 30% vs. Flatwave = 70%). But reception of WTTW got a little worse. (WTTW on Terk = 90% vs. Flatwave = 70%). I have this antenna plugged straight into the TV and just hung on the wall next the window. It is about as thick as a piece of card stock. It is possible that if it was on the second floor (instead of the first) that reception would be even better.

    Sometimes in cities, particularly in high-rise areas, the signal will get bounced around between the buildings so much it causes interference. So even though you may have a strong signal it is garbled. This is why a signal booster may not help you in a city.

    An outdoor antenna will always get better reception.

    I would try the Flatwave - it is cheap and easily returnable if it doesn't work out for you!

  • Here are a couple of links - one for the Winegard Flatwave, and another link for a virtually identical antenna that also gets great reviews, the Mohu Leaf.

Antique Watch & Clock World - HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE

Located at: 7222 W Touhy Ave, Chicago, IL 60631

I want to warn you of the HORRIBLE experience I had here.
Charles the person who held himself out as owner and master clockmaster apparently has no idea what he is doing, and on top of that he is rude and aggressive. I was scared for my safety!

I want to warn you of the HORRIBLE experience I had here.
Charles the person who held himself out as owner and master clockmaster apparently has no idea what he is doing, and on top of that he is rude and aggressive. I was scared for my safety!

I brought my clock in for repair because my regular repairman was out of town. Charles charged me nearly $500, said he knew what he was doing, promised me he was very experienced, and yet I had to go back several times and he still could not get it to work. Furthermore, he damaged the exterior! Charles also told me if I paid cash he would waive the tax - I now find out he couldn't charge tax on service. He's a total deceiver!!

I've now had the clock checked by my regular guy who confirms Charles does NOT know what he is doing. Charles apparently washed the mechanics of the clock, which destroyed them, and then bent pieces!! The regular repairman can replace the mechanics for less than half what Charles charged for his butchering job!!

After this experience, I read several other accounts similar to mine online. I hope this account prevents you from going here and having the same horrible experience!!

  • Sure - the clock repair guy I have used and who has now looked at this clock and determined the damage Antique Watch & Clock World did is: Mr. Horst Heck (630) 562-4189. He is great.

    Great review - you should really put that on yelp and report to the bbb so more consumers see it when looking for a service. Also Angie's list if you happen to be a member
