  • Gee, Mr. Positive, I'm truly sorry that genuine concerns about things like corrupt leadership and violent crime in our community don't meet with your approval.

  • There was a CRIME!!!!!

    Crime is down but any crime is bad and it's all the alderman's fault! Boom!!

    Repeat.

    Endlessly.

Updated Photo for Kitty Lost at Wayne & Pratt

Hi, I was able to get a photo of the foster kitty who is lost - accordingly, I have been hanging up new posters.

The one good thing (in a way) is that I believe the kitty broke through my old, weak window screen. When I had thought someone had cut the screen, that was disturbing.

Thank you in advance for keeping your eyes and ears open.

Please repost flyer where you can!

If you do see her, she's not socialized (just skittish and wary of humans), and so don't try to catch her. She's probably hungry, though, so feel free to leave out some food.

    For those of you trying to help by discouraging the people on this site from offering to give this kitten a good home, thank you for your concern, but you are misguided. The kitten should absolutely be scanned to make sure it is not just lost, but sending it to a no kill shelter is not improving the situation. I worked in no-kill shelters for over 15 years. We encourage people to try to find the pet a good home before taking them to a shelter. Shelters are crowded and burdened and even if the kitten would likely find a home quickly, there is still the expense of processing and treating it. One more kitten that can find a good home without the shelter leaves room and resources for the shelter to treat one more kitten that can't immediately find a good home. Also, kittens are very frequently adopted out from shelters alone; there is no guarantee that she will be adopted out as a pair.
    Kelly, thank you for being a good adopter!

Horned Beetle - Morse Red Line

Morning! I'm kicking myself because I didn't stop to take an actual pic but I saw a pretty big beetle (slightly smaller than my hand) outside the Morse Redline stop this morning (morse across from 626 and hanging out on the overpass). Here is an image of what it looked like. Curious- I've lived in and around Chicago my whole life and never seen a bug this big in the "wild". Are these beetles like this (realize it's hard to say since I didn't get an actual pic) native to this area?

  • First Graders Launching into Reading!

    Ms. Rivera is asking for $437.95:
    My students need more leveled text in Spanish for independent /partner reading time and to take home.
    Jordan Community School
  • With the teachers going on strike now and asking for even more money it looks like I should set up direct deposit straight to the city council and the teachers.

  • Michael Archangel He averaged one lie every 195 secs - Politico

    @JJ and redoocs - My daughter-in-law teaches 8th grade science in the Cambridge, MA school system. Despite it being a public school system, Cambridge does not have the same financial challenges as the CPS. But even teachers in the Cambridge system purchase supplies for which they are not reimbursed.

    You can voice your ideologically based complaints all you want...it is your right...but your complaints help no one. I choose to do rather than complain and my actions have just given some students some reading materials. A win for those kids!

Help Save Eugene Field Elementary: please sign!

Petition in this URL:

Rogers Park Everyblock friends: if you don’t already know this, the alderman and CPS propose closing Eugene Field school to move Decatur Classical into Field’s campus. Decatur, while a great and deserving school, is purely selective enrollment and has aggressively lobbied CPS and elected officials for space to expand beyond 6th grade to become K-8.

Rogers Park Everyblock friends: if you don’t already know this, the alderman and CPS propose closing Eugene Field school to move Decatur Classical into Field’s campus. Decatur, while a great and deserving school, is purely selective enrollment and has aggressively lobbied CPS and elected officials for space to expand beyond 6th grade to become K-8. Our neighborhood school, New Field – the feeder school to Eugene Field – is a top rated, CPS 1+ pre-K—4 school with an active and diverse parent community who supports keeping Eugene Field a neighborhood school and bringing it under the proven leadership of the New Field administration to support a great pre-K—8 school in Rogers Park.

The alderman’s proposal completely disrupts three RP neighborhood schools: Eugene Field, New Field, and Kilmer (where Field kids will relocate), with no net gain in resources or investment, and completely dismisses the efforts and preferences of New Field and Eugene Field kids and families. If you support neighborhood schools, please consider signing to help us make our voices louder. Thanks!

    The facts are CPS is broke and many buildings are under utilized. Expanding access to a Decatur education in a larger school and consolidating smaller schools is a win win for most people. Yes, some parents who have worked hard in their children's previous school will be disappointed but certainly they can transfer their skills to the new school, difficult as it may be initially.

    Whatever way you want to spin this deal, the reality is that Field is a significant asset and it's being handed over to one community at real cost to another.
    There are a couple of references in this thread to the "realities" of CPS budgets but those "realities" are more real for some than others.

    But let's focus on what's important here:
    Remaining civil.
    Acknowledging the diversity and inclusivity of the Decatur community.

  • I guess this is not close enough to the train station for people in this neighborhood to realize something is wrong

  • Oh, alas , we know something is wrong there and it has nothing to do with proximity to the El stations but with the people who live/hang out there. And no, not all of them obviously, but enough of them to ruin it for others.

Winchester and Howard - Thoughts?

Hey friends,

Helping a friend shop for condos in Rogers Park area. What can you tell me about Winchester and Howard? The good, the bad, the best, the worst.

Is it quiet? Family friendly? Pet friendly? Crime? Noise? Pollution? Social? Tight community? Etc?

Anything else you would mention to someone shopping in this area?

Convenience store on Jarvis Ave.

Does anyone know what happened at the convenience store right next to the Jarvis red line station? I went by there this afternoon. The store was closed, had a cop outside the front door, and a police forensic van was parked right outside.

  • Thats exactly what we do!
    Yes, she's so nice.
    the food is a great value too!

    Excellent Indian food. We try to support her restaurant on a regular basis, hopefully the community will support her now more than ever. She is not only an excellent chef, she is a really sweet woman.

    It's true there is crime along the lake. As I thought about Jericho58's comment, what I realized is that when I say "lake", what I really mean is Sheridan Road. It is very brightly lit, so it is easier to see further down the street in front of you and behind you so that you have more advance warning of people coming towards you, and crossing over to the other side of Sheridan Road is an option that puts a lot of distance between you and people you are trying to avoid. Crime still happens on Sheridan (especially around certain buildings), but it is harder to get mugged if you deliberately work to avoid letting people come within 30 feet of you when it is dark out and/or there are not as many people around. Due to my work hours I am often coming and going while it is dark out. Also there is a bus that travels on Sheridan, which helps. I prefer living very close to Sheridan Road (within a half block or less) for these reasons; that has worked for me personally as I find it harder to see further ahead and behind on the side streets. What works for me may not work for other people.

    Gail, I've been a Rogers Park resident since 2005, and also lived here back in the mid 1980's. I've never had a problem or felt unsafe in my surroundings, but I do stay alert as I do in any part of the city. When I first moved from Rogers Park, I went to Lincoln Park and within a week, my truck was broken into. This happened four times more while I lived in the "safer" Lincoln Park area. One recommendation would be to avoid areas that have large apartment/condo complexes. Parking can be tough in these areas. Good luck in your hunt for a new home.
