    @Pedro Garciano - I will agree with your premise if you agree that elements of the conservative GOP have been engaging in a concerted effort to make it more difficult for some US citizens to vote through voter ID laws, illegitimate challenges to registered voters and changing poll hours and locations.

    So, would you agree with those claims?

    That's so nice of you! These donorschoose posts are automatically generated, so unless this teacher is personally active of Everyblock, he won't see your offer. I don't think there is a way to message teachers on the donorschoose website either. I think your best bet to contact the teacher would be to call Field and leave a message for him. (773) 534-2030

Who Opposes Affordable Housing?

Additional affordable housing has been proposed for Rogers Park but the local Chamber of Commerce opposes it. The Chamber's secretary, an alternative priest who preaches in in an Elmhurst Masonic Lodge and has a postal address near Gary, Indiana, speaks against affordable Rogers Park housing and calls the Alderman a "concubine of big box interests." https://www.facebook.com/bishop.wilkowski Why is the local chamber being supported by outside religious interests and opposing affordable housing in Rogers Park? Shouldn't the chamber support commerce and not oppose it? Has the local chamber gone roque?

  • Helen NoH North of Howard for 55 + years

    Why would those who need affordable housing have to be brought to the ward? We have more than enough individuals and families here now who may be forced to leave if more affordable housing is not provided.

Spanish classes in/near Rogers Park?

I am interested in learning Spanish, and am wondering if anyone knows of any local Spanish classes or teachers in the area.

Thanks!

  • Would you like to meet at the Royal cafe late Monday afternoon? It's
    in Rogers Park, at the corner of Pratt and Sheridan. We could talk about
    what you'd like to do. Would 4:30 pm be okay? I can also meet later than
    that if it's more convenient for you.

  • Thanks for offering. Would Wednesday work for you? Later in the evening works best for me, if it does for you. 7PM? Otherwise, I could meet earlier on the weekends.

Were the popcycle girls from Rogers-park?

The third judge, Jaye P. Morgan, would award them a 10, quipping, "Do you know? That's how I started." (She was rewarded with a popsicle from one of the girls before they left the stage.)

Need some tax advice

My husband passed away in late 2014 and he had a couple of credit cards and at that thime those companies told me at the time I was NOT responsible for repaying because I was not a co-signer. Now i have received 1099's showing those written-off balances as income. Because we were married, do I have to claim those write-offs as income? Really need a tax professional or lawyer to weigh in on this. Thanks!

    Are YOU really so unaware of the world around you that you have no notion of less fortunate people than you? The last time I remember reading about it, only half of Americans aged 55-64 had retirement accounts. dj said the estate had 0 assets, and that these credit cards were kept secret from her. Are you suggesting she wash dishes to pay her cheating husband's bad debts?

  • dj long time RP home owner

    My lawyer said I am not responsible for my late husband's debts, even the credit card companies told me so when I cancelled them. They were not joint accounts, My lawyer told me to ignore those 1099s addressed to that late husband. End of story.

    Waaaay back before there was EB or even Facebook Joe Lake was the major thorn in the side of a "developer-friendly" Ald. Matlak, the predecessor to Ald. Waguespack in Bucktown.

    I've been accused of being a thorn in the side of a developer-friendly Alderman, in a weird and limited way I am like the younger Joe Lake before he became an over-posting creepy dude with a LOT of time on his hands serving up online condescension by the bucket-full.

    I hope he is happier nowadays.
