Youth Rally Blocks The 606 To Keep Anti-Gentrification Ordinance On Track

The march started on the steps of Humboldt Park Methodist Church, 2120 N. Mozart St., where youth leaders like Ashley Galvan Ramos, 18, gave impassioned speeches about how Logan Square "doesn't feel like home anymore" now that gentrification has taken hold.

...parents each worked multiple jobs for years to be able to afford their home at Central Park and Wabansia avenues about 27 years ago. After finally paying off their mortgage, Ramirez's parents are...

    Youth Rally Blocks The 606 To Keep Anti-Gentrification Ordinance On Track
    LOGAN SQUARE - A group of youth leaders who helped shape The 606 affordable housing ordinance and their supporters marched to the elevated trail Wednesday evening and then formed a wall to block joggers and cyclists from passing - all in an effort to keep momentum for the legislation going.

    So i wrote to Mina Bloom about what Howdy said (i didnt claim those comments to be true or false) and asked if they were true wouldnt that make the article more informative and accurate? She said she would never include someones biography in a piece like that as it wasnt about her but instead about the action...I was a little surprised to hear that as i would think if you claim to be a journalist that you would want to examine the subjects you are quoting in your article. If the 606 blockers had been KKK members or in gangs, whatever, wouldnt that be relevant to the piece? If indeed what Howdy said was true, that this group had ulterior motives ($$$) and is part of a corrupt conspiracy, then i think it would be relevant. I realize that DNA info is not the NYtimes but in this era of fake news, we need to demand accuracy and fairness in all media.

    Delia Ramirez background, including Board of Director VICE PRESIDENT of LUCHA, is exactly as stated in earlier comment. Ramirez is 2nd board of director listed:
    http://lucha.org/board-of-directors LUCHA / Latin United Community Housing Association and LSNA (Ramirez is former LSNA Board President) would control Maldonado/Moreno/Rosa HOUSING SLUSH $$$FUND. Never question facts from NBC's forgotten childrens TV show star:) Ms. Ramirez helped organize this "youth rally". It's her paid job and advocacy agenda. Awareness of both is absolutely relevant. Inept DNAinfo reporting... Just a few years ago LSNA claimed credit at meetings and their own annual congress publication that Bloomingdale Trail resulted from their youth leaders advocacy to city. Now they're blaming it for gentrification. Forked tongue, like scheming politicians MM&R

FOUND DOG

Due to popular demand...I am posting updated pictures (including a picture of what she looked like the day she was found) of our Penelope. As you can see...she has settled in quite nicely in our home...even with the cats!

To refresh....this is the pup that my boyfriend found running across Pulaski, near Pulaski and Armitage on July 7th. We've posted...with no luck finding the owners, or the owners finding us.

    'Havana Madrid' at Goodman recalls deeply personal tales of Chicago's Latino immigrants
    In hindsight, the announcement that preceded a recent performance of Teatro Vista's "La Havana Madrid" was unnecessary. "Laughing, applauding and dancing are encouraged," the disembodied voice told the audience at a Goodman Theatre preview of actress/writer Sandra Delgado's play-with-music.

    Our Picks For The 15 Best Bike Shops In Chicago
    It wasn't all that long ago that our friends at Bicycling magazine declared Chicago the most bike-friendly city in the country. Part of what makes our town such a great cycling spot is the plethora of shops around town that can get you rolling, and keep you rolling.

    There is a universal constant that whenever anything about bicycles is mentioned, someone has to knee jerk complain about "bikers running red lights and stop signs".

    Pretty much the first comment on this one.

    Blue City Bikes is great though.

606 Bathrooms Finally Underway As Part of $9.4 Million YMCA Expansion

At a Tuesday groundbreaking ceremony, Steve Koch, deputy mayor, thanked the YMCA for adding the two unisex bathroom stalls, to be located just off the western trailhead and on the YMCA property at 1834 N. Lawndale Ave. in Humboldt Park.

    606 Bathrooms Finally Underway As Part of $9.4 Million YMCA Expansion
    HUMBOLDT PARK - The McCormick YMCA at the western end of The 606 has kicked off a $9.4 million expansion that will add amenities for its members such as two indoor swimming pools - and for users of the park system's elevated Bloomingdale trail, long-desired public bathrooms. The bathrooms are expected to open next spring in conjunction with the expansion, officials said.

  • PSA: if you get off by the new Aldi at Milwaukee and Leavitt, you can always use their bathrooms!

  • I don't think Aldi wants non customers coming in to use their bathrooms.

  • I mean, you can always buy a water bottle or something for like 50 cents. I personally shop at Aldi a lot so I never feel bad popping in to use their restrooms if I need to.

Property Tax Attorney

Has anyone used an attorney to fight their property tax bill? If so what has been your experience? Is it worth it? What is the usual percentage they take? If good experience who do you recommend.

  • Just the 50% of the 1st years saving; no admin/filling fee.

  • KL

    I work at a property tax firm and our fee is 33% of the first years savings. And no fee if no reduction. I think KittyHop uses Richard Shapiro - 50% and $50 is really high.
