    Police: Woman lures kids with candy; man stalks girl walking home from school
    Chicago police sent out two child safety-alerts overnight. Both incidents occurred near parks and schools on the North Side - and the details are disturbing. Around 6:30 p.m. on April 20, two children were fetching a dodgeball that landed between two fences in the 6700-block of North Whipple Street.

    Montreal Could Be First City To Let Street Artists Paint Bike Paths
    Montreal Could Be First City To Let Street Artists Paint Bike Paths · April 26, 2016 For More Stories Like These In Montreal we often make fun of city workers. Like why it takes 5 of them to plant a tree, or that they have no idea how to fill potholes properly.

And how does that relate to the revenue generating potential of growing weed on a public school campus? When will Frisbee® become an Olympic event during the summer games?

Old Chicago Glimpse

I was riding my bike down Sheffield avenue and I found some of the asphalt covering the street had worn off and there it was! Old Chicago staring me straight in the face. I did not know that actual metal from streetcar tracks was still in the ground.

It would be amazing to travel back in time and see how it really looked like. The closest I can come is to visit the Chicago History Museum.

  • Uptown Arts Council Director-Artist: Jeffrey Littleton

    Clark st......Broadway and many others still have the brick n rail bed.

  • AMP Rogers Park since 1988

    If you go to the Illinois Railway Museum you can ride one that traveled Clark street

    Streetcars had ceased operating before I moved into Chicago, but the rails were still visible in Clark Street.

49th ward Participatory Budgeting

Just got the notice of winning projects along with those that were voted on but didn't have enough votes - am a bit confused about this posting --"Curb Cuts at Howard CTA Terminal $ 40,000" ----821 votes --explanation was " Install a free-standing storage structure for 50-80 kayaks at Leone Beach Park."

This office has a staffing efficiency problem???? Certainly the supervisor is not proof reading the office public announcements. In my business world we would have been embarrassed and made sure that didn't happen again - like in "you're fired" We didn't need that type of adverse notoriety.

  • Is this posting from the part time, unpaid Social Media Specialist from the Edgewater Development Corporation or is is from a Bored Director?

  • At least the Illinois Comptroller is making the legislators wait in line for their paychecks like everybody else. It's too bad Rauner isn't taking a salary as he needs to feel pain as well.

  • And while many of you are misdirecting your anger at Gov Bruce Rauner read about the fate of Puerto Rico which also spent, spent, spent into oblivion and the plight of its people. http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Politics/2016/0501/As-deadlines-come-and-go-Puerto-Rico-s-debt-crisis-grows. And then there is Detroit. Chicago, Cook County and the state of Illinois are not far behind. Remember, eventually you run out of other people's money. We reached that point many years ago; now the most vulnerable are paying the highest price but everyone is suffering.

Great start but needs additional lane markings

Kudos to whoever got this done, I have one additional request.

Drivers caught off guard by the presence of bike's in the new bike lane when autos are making the east bound turn off of Lakewood. Albion has been a one way Eastbound for all traffic for a very long time. Now with the counter flow bike lane it has caused some near misses as the bikes are directed West on Albion and North on Lakewood. Drivers are suprised by the sudden presence of bikes and you can see the panic in the cyclist eyes as they are nearly hit by the drivers. Some addional paint and maye a sigh or two would help.

  • Bruce_ Born somewhere else aged to perfection Chiraq Park

    From the photo above you can see there was no stop sign on Friday.

    As of yesterday evening there was a stop sign facing the counter flow lane on Albion at the Lakewood intersection.
    That is a huge improvement to safety for the cyclist. The new stop sign alerts cyclist that there is an intersection and to expect cars coming from the blind side.

    It would be helpful to put signage and bike lanes on Lakewood

  • Bruce_ Born somewhere else aged to perfection Chiraq Park

    Still needs some lane markings. Maybe some artist could propose a solution.

So-called Loyola Dept. of Community Relations mural

I have emailed this message to the Loyola University Department of Community Relations, in response to a mural which they imposed just days ago on our block on adjacent CTA property:

I have emailed this message to the Loyola University Department of Community Relations, in response to a mural which they imposed just days ago on our block on adjacent CTA property:

"To whom it may concern:

Your department (Community Relations) appears to have had a pivotal role (please correct me if I am wrong) in the new mural on the CTA El train concrete structure at the northeast corner of Albion and Lakewood. All indications, and so far the unanimous observation of neighbors I've canvassed on the question, are that you showed not the least interest in obtaining the pre-installation input of people, including myself (five buildings away), who actually live less than a block from that mural. You call yourselves a department of community relations, but this seems to me to be a mighty odd way of relating to the community which does, after all, live here 365 days a year. Any "assumptions" you make about what people in the vicinity of the mural will think of it are merely self-indulgent fantasies, without the input of the real community, meaning those of us who live here.

I still hope to see Loyola start to treat its neighbors as if they, too, belong here.

Sincerely,

  • It's a mural, not a personal affront. Get over it. Loyola doesn't have to answer to anyone about anything except how well they teach your children. By the way, buying a condo only gives you rights 'inside' the property, not dominion over the neighborhood. Try to see artistic expression as one of our freedoms, which should be nurtured. Maybe you could view it as a good thing. Life isn't a rock . Don't take it so hard.

Package theft from building

My building seems to have a problem with package theft from the lobby. For the third time in as many months, a package I've had sent to my address was stolen before I could get to it. Apparently this is a somewhat common problem, as others have posted notes in the lobby asking that their packages be returned. My most recent stolen package was worth several hundred dollars. Would this warrant a police report? The landlord knows about the problem but doesn't seem to care.

  • The UPS access points are great if you can get there when they are open and the package is not too heavy. It somewhat defeats the point of getting it delivered if I have to pick it up

  • I agree 60660Gal. If I have to go far to pick something up, that completely defeats the purpose. Luckily for me, Sonny's is right next door. Sonny's is not a UPS access point, you just have to have packages sent directly there instead.

    How is alderman Joe Moore responding to this? He should be the one organizing safety campaigns in the community. He's elected and paid to make Rogers Park a good place to live, he should be a lightning rod to organize the community and should be holding the police accountable for any increase in crime.

  • One might think so, but "reality" is a very different animal with this alderman.

    He doesn't really seem able to do much of anything, poor boy.

Phone Message from Joe Moore: Get out and vote TODAY!!!

It is Thursday, April 28, 2016. Election day???

Joe just called at 02:03 TODAY to urge me to get out and vote for Kim Foxx and Hillary Clinton TODAY. According to Joe, there are only a few hours left to vote. Polls will be closing at 7:00 P.M.

Did anyone else get this "urgent" message"? Pretty funny.

  • Oh yea, I've definitely come unglued.

  • Unglued? Try some Krazy Glue. It's not just for krazy things. It works on almost anything that is cracked, damaged or coming apart at the seams.

Shooting on Morse Saturday Night

We were just walking our dog up Greenview, crossed Morse when two gun shots rang out behind us and we saw someone running away towards us.

Now Morse is shut down with lots of police vehicles and we saw an ambulance drive away quickly with lights on.

Anyone know what's up? Or where we could look for more info?
