Potholes are slowing traffic

Good job City of Chicago. Haven't seen potholes repaired yet. It's been keeping the speeders under control! Just drive down most O streets north if Touhy and you'll see what I mean. In the meantime keep the Harley in the garage. You'll risk being swallowed up in a pothole!

  • We live in Edison Park and our potholes were filled yesterday

Best Friday Fish Fry?

Where can one find the best Friday Fish Fry?

  • Bob

    We like the Mecca. Closest to a good old fashioned Wisconsin fish fry. Only thing missing is the ball of cheese on the table & potato pancakes. Food is very good.

  • Squeaky Fromm It's Cocktail O'Clock

Olympia Park - Dog Question

Is there a leash law? I just asked a person to please put her dog on the leash after I saw her dog approach two other dogs aggressively run after two dogs within a minute. Her dog pee'd on one of the dogs. I asked nicely, but my request was not received well by her.

  • If it's a serious threat or attack, quietly follow the person home . When you have their address, call the police.

  • I contacted the alderman's office last year when an unleashed dog in Olympia Park approached me and my dog (leashed) and jumped on me with its dirty paws all over my work clothes. I ended up having to change clothes and missed my train. The owner was on the other...

    I contacted the alderman's office last year when an unleashed dog in Olympia Park approached me and my dog (leashed) and jumped on me with its dirty paws all over my work clothes. I ended up having to change clothes and missed my train. The owner was on the other side of the park and had no idea what was going on. The alderman's office told me I needed to go to a CAPS meeting and complain to the police. The same dog is always off leash with run of the park and relieves itself without an owner around to pick it up (which I also believe is at least a city ordinance?) Not a huge priority for the police but I assume they have to catch in the act to enforce?

Air Plane Noise

Yesterday day was a nice day to enjoy expect for the constant air planes flying over Edison Park. Anyone else had enough?

  • CGR neighborhood watching :)

    You can always move to the south side where you'll hear nothing but gunshots all the time.

    ...so we continue to let the city dictate our way of life? Our quality of life by having jets fly over your house at all times of the day or night?? Because of the noise we are inside. What happens when the weather gets warmer?....Do we stay inside, because of the jet noise? Smartie...re:of moving to the southside....question: has the FedEx plane come over your house at 3:30am and shake you awake??! Probably not....By the way...Park Ridge is a lot closer to the airport! I mean, the last time I looked at a map.....I don't live near the airport and many of us don't either. There are some of us who want to have some quiet in their city lives and not have city officials twist the taxpayers arm for their coffers. MHO....
