Please don't ride your bike on the sidewalk

It is illegal to do so if you are over the age of 12, unless it's marked that you're allowed to. You can endanger those who are walking, even if you say "beep beep" or "Excuse me".

  • I just saw two teenage girls who looked about 14 years old, get divvy bikes and walk them down the block and onto the street where they got on them like adults.

  • carrie 40-year Palmer Square resident

    Okay, Ryan, I am not moving for you cause you can't be bothered to ride in the street. Grow up.

For Our Fellow Herbivores: 5 Vegan Favorites in Logan Square

More than a hookah bar and late-night dance floor, Masada (2206 N. California Ave.) offers a delightful vegan and vegetarian menu. In fact, itemizing my favorite dishes on this short list is making my mouth water.

    William ~ I'm disturbed that this child was even taken to the home of KNOWN gang members the night she was shot. Her Mom isn't stupid, she knows who her sister was living with (and fighting with - often). I've talked to plenty of people in the know about what was going on there. She ended up being readmitted after two days of discharge. I would think (there I go again) that social services is all over this situation and doing what's best for her. She needs rest and tranquility. She deserves that much but so much more. OK, I am close to ranting . . .

    Hi Neighbors. The 014th District is hosting a Positive Loitering event this evening at 2108 N Bingham @ 6:30PM. It would be great if you could stop by and give support to the residents of this block, (they sure could use it). Thanks!
