Twisted Tapas Still Going Strong!

I started going to twisted Tapas a year ago February and cannot tell you how many times my husband and friends and I have been there since but I went again just last night! Food is still as excellent as it was a year ago and the staff is just as friendly and fun! It is SO great to see this place continue to do so well. If you haven't been there in a while make sure to get out into what is sure to be the last of winter and have a nice dinner! I think we are all getting cabin fever and tired of going out in the cold! Thanks Twisted!!

  • The only sassy thing I've encountered there is the gnocchi. Love that place and looking forward to an excuse to walk over there now that spring is theoretically a few weeks away.

RP Election Ennui

Yesterday's election numbers are interesting. Terrible turn-out overall throughout the City. The cold probably had something to do with it, but I think it was also a sense that people just aren't very supportive of the candidates who are/were running. I do believe that if "none of the above" was an option in the mayoral race, that would have garnered more than 50%!!

Anyhow, in our Ward, here are the numbers:

Yesterday's election numbers are interesting. Terrible turn-out overall throughout the City. The cold probably had something to do with it, but I think it was also a sense that people just aren't very supportive of the candidates who are/were running. I do believe that if "none of the above" was an option in the mayoral race, that would have garnered more than 50%!!

Anyhow, in our Ward, here are the numbers:

1) We have 25,105 registered voters.
2) 8,380 voted yesterday (33.38%).
3) 5,566 voted for Joe (giving him 66.42% of the vote), but only 22.17% of registered voters bothered to vote for him.
4) 2,814 voted for Don (giving him 33.58% of the vote), but only 11.21% of registered voters bothered voting for him.

So, what does RP want in an alderman? Let's describe the experience and qualities we seek in an alderman in this Ward. (Let's try REALLY hard NOT to use this as a chance to bash Joe and/or Don, but instead, design our ideal candidate!)

I'll start the list with the following:
1) Someone willing to lead by talking about the seriousness of the fiscal problems facing the City and that none of the ways to address them will be pleasant (think chemo).
2) Someone who prioritizes education based on what is good for the kids and not what is good for the adults.

Let's keep the list going!!

  • Bill in Rogers Park Rogers Parker - co-founder of Glenwood Neighbors

    One option to help close the state budget deficit is to tax the pensions just like all income earners of the state are taxed. Would be interesting to see how much revenue that would bring in.

  • Bill - what you are suggesting is that you want too tax the income of retirees - who have limited income? Nothing like increasing their tax bill to keep them at home - cold and hungry. Your Grandmother would be proud of you. I suspect this would not be a popular political move for any politician to propose.

  • Bernie2, why are you awesome on this thread and being so...uh....the opposite on other threads?

    The south side desperately needs a Level I trauma center. I didn't know people were objecting for that reason, but anything that draws publicity to the lack of trauma care (for adults--UofC Children's has an ER) on the south side is a good thing.

  • ptgrp E. of Sheridan, Not FGFM's sockpuppet

    @_Becky, the argument against the adult Trauma Center goes, "but where would we put it? We're hemmed in by Washington Park/Cottage Grove." And the South end of Washington Park, while being "underdeveloped" from an infrastructure point of view, is really full of natural beauty.

Making whine with sour grapes

After a defeat, Most politicians try and send a message to their supporters that they should try to work with their opponent for the betterment of all. And then there is Don Gordon's message -

"The residents of Rogers Park who put Alderman Moore back in the council for another 4 years simply don't get it or prefer stick their collective heads in the sand..."
https://www.facebook.com/groups/Gordon2015/permalink/780917585317984/

Well, at least he isn't trying to disenfranchise half of the ward this time... he's just insulting 66% of them.

Way to move the neighborhood forward Don!

Anyone see the person who hit my car?

Hi all, I really hate posting negative things, but this morning we went out to our car parked on Lunt near one of the fire hydrants (legally) and next to an alley to find that someone had slammed into our front driver side bumper and cracked it significantly. They must have it it pretty hard to crack it (a piece was missing), and of course no note was left. We use our car for our catering jobs and having it damaged like that does not look good. If anyone has any information, or saw anything (or if you are the one who hit us...no questions asked, just please come forward), I would really appreciate it!

  • Helen NoH North of Howard for 50 + years

    In the new parking garage, I bet, Steve. The one certain members of the community didn't want built.

    Sorry to hear about that, Nancy.

  • Nancy B. Co-Owner Gold'N Pear Catering

    Thanks to all for your comments and sympathy. I am hoping we can replace the front bumper without too much cost and without the involvement of my insurance. But just for the record, I for one was also against that monstrosity of a parking garage. Sorry, Helen. And by the way, the garage only helps those who live pretty darn close to it. I am not willing to walk 5 blocks to park my car.

Help!! State Budget Cuts

I just learned the word is out from Springfield that massive budget cuts proposed by IL's new guv will severely impact social services (always conservatives' favorite target). This worries me from a general standpoint as an IL resident, but also from a personal one because my young adult son is disabled and he's housed in a special facility in the suburbs to provide a long-term supportive living environment for the disabled.

I just learned the word is out from Springfield that massive budget cuts proposed by IL's new guv will severely impact social services (always conservatives' favorite target). This worries me from a general standpoint as an IL resident, but also from a personal one because my young adult son is disabled and he's housed in a special facility in the suburbs to provide a long-term supportive living environment for the disabled. If these budget cuts are approved, we've learned the program that funds our son's living and work facilities will lose over $800K from its operating budget.

We are pretty freaked. These programs and others like them around the State are absolutely essential to the population they serve, and yet they have suffered continual, deep budget cuts throughout the years. They are struggling to meet the many expenses of providing their services as it is. If they lose this money, we have no idea how they can stay open. If they close, where will its fragile and vulnerable population go? There must be a better way to balance IL's budget than robbing disadvantaged people.

The only chance is to put enough pressure on the State reps to veto Mr. Rauner's proposal. Anyone who could write letters of protest to their elected officials, we would be so grateful. Also, can anyone tell me to whom shall we address our letters? Who are the ones that serve our community? Thanks!

    An applicant for placement must get qualified for Medicaid. That's the funding source. After I completed the application and dropped it off, a month went by. I received a letter telling me to send them all my son's medical records no later than...3 days from then. It would take a week just to copy all of it! The letter said if I needed an extension call the caseworker. Except, when I called his direct number, I got a recording saying the party's voicemail box is full. Try again later! The thing is, I got the same message every one of the 600x I tried the number. I tried calling the main office number. That was either busy or rang with no answer, no matter when or how often I called. I FAXd a letter. It wasn't acknowledged. Within a week, I rec'd a letter saying we hadn't complied and the case is now closed. I ended up calling Heather Steans office for help. A few days later, the caseworker called me to reopen my son's case. Victory! But he was so steamed over me "beating" him, he said something very rude and hung up. Offensive, but I accomplished what I needed. But brother!

  • Helen NoH North of Howard for 50 + years

    You shouldn't have needed to get Sen. Steans to intervene but we are so lucky to be represented by her and Kelly Cassidy--people who actually care about their constituents' welfare.

    I've seen photos of FebGirl's son at his new home. It really is a home, not a warehouse for the disabled.

Good-bye, MorWay

All but one business in the strip mall at Morse and Wayne has closed shop for good. Word on the street is Jennifer Pritzker bought it. The lone holdout is Vic's Pharmacy, who has allegedly gone to court - and was granted to stay until May 2015.

One can only speculate as to how big of a parking garage will be built in it's place?

One can also speculate as to how long it will be before Ms. Pritzker buy's out JB's Pizza?

Five Stages of Loss and Grief

It would seem that one of our Rogers Park neighbors is dealing with the first of the typical five stages of loss and grief. It is well accepted that these five stages are:

1. Denial
2. Anger
3. Bargaining
4. Depression
5. Acceptance

It is quite normal to be locked into denial for a while and I suppose this accounts for some recent posts. Let us see how long it takes to get to acceptance!
