    "Do you think Rahm's contractors' people are out there beating the bushes for him in these last few days?"

    We've gotten about a dozen calls from Rahm's side. Nothing from Chuy.

    Tho Chuy did make an appearance outside my kids school shortly before the first election--there are few parents in the hood who are very pro-Chuy, and presumably orchestrated it. Believe that that is mostly about the school board--which cannot be a bona fide elected body w/o action from Springfield.

    John: I agree that debates are probably the best way to get a sense of the candidates. As far as Harold Washington goes, we would be lucky to get someone like Harold again. Never was the Mayor's office as open to community groups as it was during the Washington administration. He knew that he had to get white and Hispanic votes as well as black votes to get reelected, so he spent his time in neighborhoods all around the city. I knew people in his economic development office and they all were very dedicated to bringing resources into the neighborhoods. Garcia just does not have the same voter base as Washington did, nor does he have the same sheer charisma. That is not to say that Garcia isn't very dedicated to making neighborhoods a top priority. He is, and that's his strongest suit. But I got to see Washington close up, working a crowd, and he drew energy from being with people like no politician I have seen since. He loved people of all colors.

    P.S. As a side comment to people running for office; All things being equal I will vote for the person who does not call the other candidate names. The "At least I'm not as bad as xxxxx" is a red flag. Kind of like the ISIS slogan; "Hey, at least we are not Comcast"

Community control is destroying American cities

http://newyorkyimby.com/2015/03/community-control-is-destroying-americas-cities.html

The article linked gives a good overview of the problems with giving zoning control at the local level and the definition of community. I think we can clearly see the result of this in Irving Park , Jefferson Park and Logan Square. Micro control is negatively impacting the city as a whole. It's adding costs to development, driving up housing costs and reducing the walkability of our city.

So its that time to pick up the neighbor's leaves for them

Piles of dead leaves remain on the sidewalk since Fall.. I guess I'm the only person that realizes this looks ridiculous.

I opened a ticket with SeeClickFix, it was closed - nothing happened. Opened another ticket, nothing.

So I will just go buy a rake and clean up all these leaves myself. Have a nice weekend everybody and if you see somebody raking and bagging leaves and trash, that is me. Say hello! :-)

Windy City Playhouse

FYI we have a new playhouse in the hood at 3014 W Irving Park Rd. This is a not-for-profit theater, so this is not an ad. We had a great experience so I thought I would pass this on in case others were not aware that it is there. We purchased the less expensive seats ($25) which were very comfortable and in the back (4th) row. The $45 seats were individual lounge type seats with snack tables between every two....

FYI we have a new playhouse in the hood at 3014 W Irving Park Rd. This is a not-for-profit theater, so this is not an ad. We had a great experience so I thought I would pass this on in case others were not aware that it is there. We purchased the less expensive seats ($25) which were very comfortable and in the back (4th) row. The $45 seats were individual lounge type seats with snack tables between every two. Because the theater is small all of the seats seemed good. Drinks and snacks were available.

The first play is End Days. Probably not suitable for children but very funny at times and poignant at others and the acting was very impressive. We thoroughly enjoyed it and it seemed the rest of the audience agreed.

  • Thanks for the review Katie. We have tix in April, so I'm glad too hear the venue/performance are living up to the hype.

  • kvee California and irving park resident

    They are also offering tickets on sale at Groupon for the April 2nd show.

  • For a non profit, they sure poured a lot of money into the place, btw, that new restaurant on Kedzie by Belle Plaine, Howard Quintero is providing all the food except for the candy and nuts type stuff.

Traffic study at Elston and Kimball?

Is there any way to get a traffic study done to figure out a way to improve the traffic flow for Kimball at the Elston intersection. It sometimes takes 5-7 minutes to get from Irving Park through Elston - this is roughly a 1/3 of a mile, so yes one could easily outwalk a car.

I feel the root of the problem is the length of the green light for Kimball traffic. It is very short - half the length...

I feel the root of the problem is the length of the green light for Kimball traffic. It is very short - half the length actually (I believe) of the Elston green light. I feel like there could be a change in timing on the weekends at a minimum to up the green light time (as there's less Elston traffic on the weekend vs. a weekday, and MUCH more Kimball traffic).

Thoughts? Ideas? Anyone agree?

  • If that stop sign wasn't there, you would never get through Kimball on Grace going west. I take it all of the time to avoid Addison to get to 90/94, the only reason you can get through it because of it.

  • Yeah, basically you need a stop sign because otherwise people would just block the intersection—which half the time they do anyways because literally no one understands that being a selfish jerk on the road is what actually causes 96% of traffic jams.

Teens Rape Woman at Gunpoint: Cops

The woman was walking home from the gym around 11 p.m. when the teenage boys approached her along the 3900 block of Richmond Avenue, not far from Castor Avenue, and one pulled out a gun, investigators said.

One suspect was found on the 3700 block of Richmond Street, the other on the 2300 block of East Butler Street, Small said. Both were positively identified and had cash and other items belonging to the woman, he said.

  • LisaMV friendly Lincoln Square neighbor

    This is awful anywhere, but did this happen in Philly?

  • Preeti Superstar, animal lover, just me

    Yes, in Philly. EB has gone haywire again mixing up Richmond street in Chicago with the one in Philly

  • Wendy Small-town living in the big city

    Apparently it was on Channel 5 here, so that's probably why they picked it up. Odd, regardless.
