    @PACky
    Whom are you trying to fool?
    White racists don't sadden you.
    You LOVE white racists.
    They justify your unresolved anger at yourself and provide a convenient outside target for your inner rage; clearly this allows you to ignore your self-hate and at the same time feel you are serving a higher cause. Reflect on your anger. It is blocking your growth.
    Pathetic.

  • Chump,

    Structural racism is endemic in this country. Racists like yourself hurt all citizens with your constructs like "...I feel no need to ingratiate myself with black people by pretending I am something less than I am"

    Consider psychological projection in your case, too. Read up on it:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychological_projection

    You seem be quite knowledgeable about unresolved anger. Chump, are you prone to violence?

Types of Bank Accounts with Decent Interest Rates

I apologize in advance if this is too off-topic for EveryBlock. I'm hoping it still fits, since I'm open to local banks, and not just the mega banks. Please feel free to PM me if you have advice you'd like to share.

I'm looking for savings or checking accounts that are interest bearing or money market accounts that do the same. Like most people, I don't want to pay maintenance fees. I'll also consider a short-term CD, two years max....

I'm a complete novice when it comes to investing, and there's so many banks out there (and online) I don't know if I'd be able to find and compare them all.

I figure city bonds are no good, since I keep reading that they've reached junk status.

If anyone knows of free places to get guidance, I'd appreciate it. I've looked into the library's Money Smarts series, but they don't cover the topic I'm asking about here.

Youth Arrested For Biking on Sidewalk a 'Clear-Cut Case of Racism': Witness

Shevale Evison, 34, said he "knew there was a whole legal matter going on" when he spotted a handcuffed young man standing over his bike in the 1500 block of West Morse Avenue on Aug. 13, so he decided to intervene. (Scroll down for video of the exchange)

The incident happened in front of Howard Area Community Center's youth services building, 1527 W. Morse, a day after a 22-year-old man was shot on the same block.

    Youth Arrested For Biking on Sidewalk a 'Clear-Cut Case of Racism': Witness
    ROGERS PARK - A man who witnessed a boy's arrest for riding his bike on the sidewalk - after allegedly rapping N.W.A.'s "F--- the Police" - says he stopped to confront the officers because the arrest was "a clear-cut case of racism."

  • Chip Bagg - ->-<- -

    I do believe that the diminutive Shevale Evison, 34, has set himself up for an eventual "tune up" by the Chicago Po-Po. I watched the video and it is quite clear that he is daring them to deliver a severe a$$-whooping. Those white policemenz were acting all indifferent and non-threatening but you know they were taking mental notes. I will not be surprised if that little black fella has a serious accident at some time in the future.

Shots at Marshfield/Jonquil

Just heard about 6 shots at Marshfield/Jonquil at 8:30pm while walking a dog I'm dog sitting. Called 911 but haven't seen/heard anything to the 911 nature. Disturbing and very close to where I was.

  • Thanks Bigchi

  • I really want to stay where we are at--I do--I love the sense of community (for the most part), we have 2 gardening plots, I love Sol Cafe. But if I cannot walk a dog safely at 8:30pm, I really question things. I just want to feel safe, that's it.

Is the Rogers Park Chamber of Commerce legit?

In lieu of recent corruption and scam allegations such as the most recent donation drive for an un-researched motor boat for the Park District, does anyone know if all of the businesses the founder of the Chamber proclaims he is the owner of have current good standing with the Illinois Secretary of State? I like to donate to good causes, but recent allegations make me question this. I'm not sure how to go about this research myself.

Used Car Dealers?

Can anyone recommend a used car dealer? Or suggest ones to avoid?

  • Susan Szews Rogers Park Resident for 17 years

    They don't advertise it on their website, but they always have a few cars for sale, probably a van? I've bought a car from them for a friend and it's lasted her over five years now - I only paid 3K for it, and she's put very minor work into it since then. They're on a bus route and then just a short walk when the bus turns off to continue on to Old Orchard mall.

Indecent Exposure on the Porch (Greenview and Birchwood)

So, my wife and I were enjoying our evening outside our back porch, cooking and talking when I briefly went inside to set the table for dinner. In the time it took for me to return outside, to our horror, my wife witnessed a man masturbating on the porch next door, only one building away from ours. I reported this to the authorities and hope that this kind of behavior isn't just ignored. It takes a neighborhood to urban decline.

Always report this stuff. You never know when that person might be a threat and it could mean the difference between whether that person ends up behind bars or out on the streets again.

  • @Helen.

    Because they WANT to.

    This is a chat site, not a dinner party. People don't have to "keep up".
    People are allowed to comment whenever they want and in any manner they want.
    There isn't a time limit for such things and it could very well be some of the commenters didn't see this so called original post.

    A little levity, patience, and understanding can add years.

    Ultra Local Geography: Former Rogers Park National Bank, Clark and Lunt
    The building at the southeast corner of Lunt and Clark is a 1917 Classical Revival bank with an Art Moderne facade along Clark Street. Your first thought should probably be "What the heck?" But why this happened is interesting.

    I loved that bank building. The building on SE corner across the street at Clark and Lunt echoes the Clasical Revival columns of the bank. Was shocked when they tore it down and put up an ugly strip mall. The building would have been cool to have repurposed. Similar bank in village in NYC is now a Trader Joes. Too bad the knee jerk reaction of many is to tear down and build cheap krap. in its place. One day I hope we wake up and stop that stupidity.

Is CHA the problem in Rogers Park ?

I am in need of factual information.

Please do not interject your psychological opinions to my questions.

..........Just verified facts.

==================================================

01.) When Cabrini-Green & Robert Taylor were vacated, did each resident
......get a " Section 8 " voucher ?

02.) Are these vouchers permitted at any CHA approved private rental property ?

03.) Are there limits to the rental cost that may be billed to CHA ?

04.) What are the responsibilities of the landlord accepting CHA vouchers ?...

05.) Who monitors the rental property / landlord ?

06.) Who enforces the terms of the rental lease ?

07.) How does a landlord lose CHA approval ?

08.) What does the " Section 8 " program cost the taxpayer ?

09.) Is the " Section 8 " program a " CASH COW " for bad landlords ?

10.) Is there a list of addresses where " Section 8 " vouchers are being used ?

11) Is there a limit to how many vouchers can be valid in a geographic area ?

=========================================================

On paper, the Section 8 program is a positive attempt to improve
housing conditions for residents.

However, in my OPINION , the program needs a major overhaul.

.....* Bad landlords need to lose their CHA approved status.

.....* Bad tenants need to lose their CHA Section 8 voucher.

.....* CHA need to do a better job of enforcing " community standards ".

....* The CHA should help improve a block, not destroy it.

What to do about downstairs neighbors smoking pot?

I have nothing against pot but I'm sensitive to the stuff, I have really bad allergies so any sort of smoke makes me cough. So when I come hope and have to open the windows to air out my unit just so I don't have a coughing fit it's a bit ridiculous. Not to mention I've had to wash some clothes in my closet that I wear for work so my work doesn't suspect anything. This is the third time...

I have nothing against pot but I'm sensitive to the stuff, I have really bad allergies so any sort of smoke makes me cough. So when I come hope and have to open the windows to air out my unit just so I don't have a coughing fit it's a bit ridiculous. Not to mention I've had to wash some clothes in my closet that I wear for work so my work doesn't suspect anything. This is the third time it's been this bad in less than two months.

My landlord says they'll send notices to downstairs neighbors warning them and if it continues they'll take further action.

I know there isn't much a landlord can do since the duct system in the building links everyone, but I feel I should be able to not smell my neighbors when I come home. I don't want to be 'that neighbor' but this has to end.

Anyone have some input as to how I could handle this?

Thanks in advance!

    Maybe, then you wouldn't be so GD crazy!

Lost Wallet!

Hello! I think my wallet fell out of my pocket last night either in Andersonville or Rogers Park, on the Jarvis block. It is small, red plaid, and has cards for Sarah Wilson inside. No cash. I am moving in several days to Detroit so I am *desperate* to find this ASAP. Makes moving even more terrible! Thank you for your time.

"Amber" Street Lights

I was driving north on Clark St. tonight, and I was struck, once again, by the depressing yellow street lighting. From Uptown all the way back to Rogers park, the street lights emit this glow they call "amber," but which is better described as urine. No other city I know of sprays this sickly pall on its nocturnal landscapes. The urine glow washes out all color and detail from even the most beautiful street detail, casting a veil of sickliness...

I was driving north on Clark St. tonight, and I was struck, once again, by the depressing yellow street lighting. From Uptown all the way back to Rogers park, the street lights emit this glow they call "amber," but which is better described as urine. No other city I know of sprays this sickly pall on its nocturnal landscapes. The urine glow washes out all color and detail from even the most beautiful street detail, casting a veil of sickliness over the living and the dead. Several years ago it was announced that Chicago would be replacing its "amber" street lights with halogen lights, but the far north side seems to have been left out of the initiative. Does anyone know if there have been discussions in the northern wards about replacing the amber street lights and giving us back the beauty of night? I would venture to claim that our yellow nights are partially responsible for Chicago's crime rate, because when you walk around after dark, the street lights truly cast a criminal despair on your soul...

    We have butter lighting than Evanston. You can't see anything in that town. Also it is supposed to help prevont grime.

  • In the evening if I drive up sheridan north of the cemetery onto south street into evanston I have to stop a second to re-adjust my glasses. I alway think it's me but the charming streetlamps don't give off enough light. In the summer they are hidden between branches making it even worse. The funny thing is, they use major wattage in the alleys and gangways.

Poor Dynø wanted to claim Farwell Pier for himself with a can of black spray paint but didn't realize that the neighborhood already owned it and had their own bucket of paint. His claim didn't last long at all. From the upside-down-pitchfork symbol (disrespect to the Gangster Disciples) Dynø must be one of our local Latin Kings. Sorry Dynø, the pier is OURS.

Where can I drop off free food?

I'm moving back in with my parents, but over the past year I have accumulated food that just won't fit in our cabinets! It's not much, but It's enough for me to reach out and ask where I can drop this food off!

    We at A Just Harvest do offer out donated dry goods and fresh produce to community residents as well as anyone else the passes through our doors. However, we are also connected to other organizations such as Care for Real by providing food items to their programs, I believe twice a month. We also support the St. Jeromes lunch program as well as the Howard Area Community Center's youth lunch program. Along with supporting the various programs A Just Harvest serves nutritious dinners year 'round to aprox. 197 patrons every evening of the year.
    Whether or not you donate the food items to our kitchen or any of the suggested programs; each is a good choice.

Joe Moore helps block elected school board question

Ok, folks, here's something to legitimately question your alderman about: he just played an instrumental role in preventing City Council from putting school board elections on the ballot. According to the Tribune report, Moore denies that there were any political motivations in what he did at Tuesday's council meeting, but it's fairly obvious what his motivations were, and he blocked the same question from the ballot back in 2012 by arguing that a petition was presented 3 minutes too late. Chicago voters should be able to elect the school board, and we deserve better political representation on this issue.
