Viaduct Safety! Tribune article via Sunday Edition.

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/ct-viaduct-demario-bailey-murder-met-20141219-story.html#page=1

Please take a moment to read about the young man, Demario Bailey, shot during a robbery in a South Side Viaduct. I am also providing a link to his memorial fund to help with funeral and other expenses.

http://www.youcaring.com/memorial-fundraiser/demario-bailey-memorial-fund/277971

Share the link for the Viaduct Petition. Lots of discussions happening and it takes an entire city of concerned citizens to make change happen. www.chicagoviaduct.com

  • Juarez Community Academy High School reviewed by a teacher

    I have substituted for many years, at about 40 high schools. There are some very good things at Juarez, and some bad ones. The staff and security spoil the kids, cut them too much slack. The kids are babyish compared to most schools, and definitely the swearing is awful, worst in the city. But it is still a good place to sub, students will usually respect you, will calm down if you keep on them. I see a sub who reported on here last month said security didn't come when she called them. I know a sub who had the same problem last week at Juarez. In 2011 and 2012 when I called security, they came and removed the troublemakers.

Lost my SD memory card on the bus

I lost my 16gb SD memory car on the 9 Ashland bus Monday, the 15th of December. It is blue and if you found it, it was probably on the back half of the bus. The card isn't even that important to me. What I really need is the footage that I recorded to it that day.
