Don't fear the Opossums

They fear humans , they will not attack your pet or childen and they are 99% IMMUNE to Rabies. The only mammal that is such. Better than rats and they eat all that Pilsen garbage in the alleys,.
"Opossums benefit humans in many ways, helping control a number of unwanted pests. Although opossums are nonaggressive, nocturnal creatures that generally aren't dangerous, they are often nuisances that dig in the garbage, take up residence under a porch, raid a well-tended garden or wreak havoc in the chicken house.":http://homeguides.sfgate.com/possums-eat-dangerous-81806.html

Aldermen - Lazy & Coasting?

Not being from Chicago, I had never heard of an Aldermanic system before. From what I have been able to gather, it seems like a crooked, well paid figurehead position, more than an active position, especially for some who have been in office for many many years. Am I way off?

The one thing I reached out to Alderman Danny Solis's office about (safety at Throop Park after 6 stitches in my sons head) I got completely blown off about.

Any opinions?

  • Blue Line L Douglas Park B train

    Jorge, you wouldn't accept corp. contributions or you just haven't yet received them? Also, the Dunkin Donuts and Subway in the neighborhood are franchisees, local owners who chose an established model to do business. and the DD on Paulina had already been in the neighborhood for several years (they moved from the L station) and hires local residents.

  • Blue Line, The Dunkin Donuts (2) in Pilsen are family owned, & managed by Pilsen residents. They bring employment, stability to the community, and a well named Brand (& tasty donut) to the community. Subway is now the largest franchised business in the country now, passing McDonalds, this is a plus for any community they open in. You would think that someone running for Alderman would be aware of the diversity, investment, & community involvement of many businesses in the 25th Ward.

Candidate foot soldiers!?!?

I'm curious does anyone know if the ppl that go door to door asking for signatures for specific candidates are even screened or interviewed by their respective candidates?????

I had a young woman come to my home twice asking me if I were registered and if I would vote for her candidate. I don't even remember who she was representing... But WOW was she dumb as a bag of rocks! I wish I would've recorded the whole ordeal because it was super funny. She was just lost entirely lost...

  • While everyone has strong opinions and is passionate about the candidate they support, there is no need for disrespect from any parties. Mr. Johnson is a volunteer, not employed byTeam Sigcho and his views and opinions expressed are are solely his and in no way reflective of Byron Sigcho or...

    While everyone has strong opinions and is passionate about the candidate they support, there is no need for disrespect from any parties. Mr. Johnson is a volunteer, not employed byTeam Sigcho and his views and opinions expressed are are solely his and in no way reflective of Byron Sigcho or Team Sigcho.

    Once on the ballot, we welcome vigorous, open debate between any and all candidates, but let's focus on getting on the ballot first. Again, we are not each other's enemy. Let's save our energy for the real battle at hand. Thank you.

  • 25th Little Italy

    I don't know Nellie...Mr. Hernandez has outlined some pretty legitimate concerns about Mr. Sigcho and offered resources that seem to give those concerns some credibility. Mr. Sigcho in turn has chosen not to answer any of the concerns but instead someone in his employ has both threatened a lawsuit against Mr. Hernandez and then threatened to run a smear campaign against him. At this point, I think I have a pretty clear picture of what Mr. Sigcho is about.

Celebrate National Spicy Guacamole Day With These Guac Picks

DeColores Galeria y Sabores: This Pilsen gem, 1626 S. Halsted St., is known for its super fresh food and strong drinks, and their guacamole is a customer favorite. Wanna keep things spicy? Order the chili mango margarita.

This article has 8 other Chicago locations (Show)

Burrito House: You might cruise past the Burrito House, 3547 N. Lincoln Ave., thinking it's just another taqueria. You'd be wrong. DNAinfo's Mark Konkol swears by their guac, and Yelpers agree — praising the food and low prices.

El Gordo: Our Northwest Side reporter Heather Cherone says El Gordo, 5746 W. Belmont Ave., is "the bomb." One Yelper bemoaned that lack of review choices on the site, saying they would give this Portage Park spot "a million stars."

Bullhead Cantina: Rogers Park reporter Ben Woodard swears by the guac at the North Side Bullhead Cantina outpost, 1406 W. Morse Ave. Not to worry, West Siders — Yelpers say the guac at Bullhead's Humboldt Park location is "cheap and delicious" as well.

Taco Joint: If the standard guac doesn’t get you excited enough, Taco Joint, 1969 N. Halsted St., offers a variety of guacamoles including the Tradicional (avocado, tomato, red onion cilantro serrano pepper...

Big Star: We know Big Star, 1531 N. Damen Ave., gets a lot of praise. But sometimes a place deserves the hype. Big Star's guac features serrano peppers that make it a perfect Spicy Guacamole Day pick — and the option to chase it with a strong margarita with fresh lime juice doesn't hurt, either.

Pancho Pistolas: South Siders dig the guac at Pancho Pistolas, 700 W. 31st St. in Bridgeport. While some restaurants charge an arm and a leg for a tiny portion of the green stuff, Pancho piles it on. You might need extra chips.

Takito Grill: Takito Grill, 601 W. 43rd St., in Canaryville is another South Side favorite. Bonus — it's super affordable.

Harvest Time: Unlike the resy of this list, Harvest Time, 2632 W. Lawrence Ave., is a grocery store. But the fresh guacamole they whip up is worth the lack of margaritas. While you're at it, grab their house-made salsa. And an extra bag of chips. You'll need 'em.

  • sch

    YEAH GUACAMOLE FIGHT!

  • A large guacamole was only $2.50....so I paid for the chips~ Good trade off. Its a carry out joint with seating.
