    Water Main Project Is Our Killing Business, Says Portage Grounds Cafe Owner
    PORTAGE PARK - A months-long construction project to replace water mains underneath Irving Park Road has snarled traffic and made it impossible to park near Portage Grounds in Portage Park - grinding the cafe's profits to dust, its owner said.

    What would the forman do besides nothing

    And how much did your business and property taxes go up? We need more government workers! Many municipality's have a small workforce and outsource most of the larger jobs. Less city employees means less payroll and less pensions.

  • Ebinger Elementary School reviewed by a parent

    Our overall experience with this school is beyond great. This community school is a gem. The entire school creates a greater community in and out of the school building. The students enjoy coming to school, even the upper grade students. The teaching staff is supportive and attentive to the needs of their students. The administration is top-notch. Ms. Peterson-Klosa is an extremely intelligent leader who supports students, staff, parents, and community members. There is a reason why the enrollment has grown to almost double since she began as principal. Hopefully CPS will build an addition to the school soon. As Ms. Peterson-Klosa continues to lead this school to excellence, more families will be drawn to the neighborhood.

    Ebinger represents everything that is excellent about a school and why it's so successful..The Principal is everywhere; directing traffic, monitoring the playground, attending every meeting etc. She has an open-door policy and is extremely energetic, warm, and engaging. The teachers are dedicated, welcoming to the children, the parents, the community and to each other. The real beauty of this school is the sense of "community" between the neighborhood and the school. Teachers hold fundraisers, attend fundraisers, and donate countless hours of their time towards the school's programs. Everyone in Edison Park is invested in this remarkable school. The Men's club, the P.T.A., the Ebinger Woman's Club, the Ebinger Foundation, everyone is always working together to make this jewel of a neighborhood school the best that it can be. Instead of complaining about what isn't, everyone comes together and asks what he or she can do to make things better and help. The enrollment and test scores have skyrocketed over the past 6 years because of this remarkable relationship that is rooted in trust and respect. The obvious benefit to all of this, is that the children thrive. Illinois will eventually pass a budget and the teachers will eventually get a contract. However, no matter how long that takes, you cannot put a price tag on the dedication, and loyalty of this thriving school and this heartwarming, close-knit community.

    Street Named For Vietnam War Vet-Thanks To 12-Year-Olds Who Never Knew Him
    CHICAGO - For most of their lives, 12-year-old best friends Alec Jankowski and Rudy Altenbach have strolled past a memorial to PFC Gregory Kasper, who died in the Vietnam War, in their Edison Park neighborhood. For nearly 50 years, Gail Kasper has kept her brother's memory alive by maintaining his memorial.

    The principal is amazing! She communicates clearly and consistently. Weekly updates with all the pertinent information needed. She also has an open door policy - I have emailed her and gotten a response immediately. I love her "all access"as she allows any question during her "coffee talks" and alternates them b/w mornings and evenings so all parents have the option to attend. The teachers are engaged and invested in the school and students. The community of parents is also highly invested in the success of the school. Lots of attendance at school events and family nights (literacy, math, science fair, etc.). The experiences that are open to students is extraordinary! Starting in 4th grade they have experience educational trips to White Pines, NYC, Springfield, WDC, Milwaukee. There are student run plays, choir and band. There are after school clubs (some of them are tuition based and provided by and outside vendor: Girls on the Run, chess, violin/piano just to name a few). This school is also on track to receive full IB status! Great and rigorous instruction level. Yes classes are large here but the level of instruction is still very high and the students continue to amaze, grow and increase their knowledge and commitment. I am so lucky this is our neighborhood school!

    This is a great CPS neighborhood school. School administration and staff are very caring toward my child. The principal is always visible. I constantly see her talking with students and parents. As a new parent, I feel welcomed and encouraged to be part of the school community. My child is performing well and is being challenged. He enjoys going to school every day.
