    Rogers Park is a great neighborhood full of interesting people and friendly faces. One person who makes Rogers Park great is Arlene (a.k.a Lisa) Barry, our local Streetwise vendor who has stood in front of Morse Market for 4.5 years now selling magazines and offering a warm smile to passersby.

    Maggie, I just saw your new message on the GoFundMe page. I'm not willing to comment there because the site requires people to give access to their Facebook friends in order to post a comment. That's intrusive. This is shared on the Rogers Park Neighborhood News Facebook page. One of the comments there is "Cabrini Green Legal Aid may be able to assist with expungement or sealing of criminal record."

Hello -
We recently adopted a young 2 year old tabby cat to make friends for our older resident cat after his pal had to be put down to sleep last year due to aggressive stage cancer. We did proper introduction but the age difference may seem too much.
Our younger kitty keeps attacking our resident male cat so he is afraid constantly.
We are trying again separation for a week and will see how it goes again but just wanted to see if anyone might be interested in taking in young spayed very friendly female cat.
We live in Rogers Park just off Pratt.

Would need to know you know how to take care of cats and ideally it seems that little Bella is very territorial and would be preferred to be a single cat or in company of similarly aged cat. Not sure how she handles dogs as we never had them.

Please pm me with more questions.

    I lived in Evanston for a couple years while my son was in middle school (Nichols). I went to one public meeting about schools, it was obnoxious to say the least, nothing serious just a lot of bickering over curriculum.

    I cant even remember who the mayor was.

Divvys are great!

Divvy bikes a very welcome addition to the neighborhood by reducing the impact that cars have for short trips, help us get to and from the El and Metra faster, and save $ by avoiding the need for short trips on the CTA.

But also, they have fantastic customer service. Thank you for your help this weekend Divvy!

    I have even gone to Wrigley Field on a Divvy. One of the few city government programs that are self-funding.

    Divvy's stations are well planned in the 49th... practically ever resident is within 4 blocks of a divvy station. Not sure about Edgewater.

Does anyone in the vicinity of the Morse Red Line need boxes? Let me know and I'll put them in the alley instead of breaking them down for recycling. I have five "small" book boxes and a couple of larger boxes, including one that held a microwave. Might have more by 5 pm. Thanks for reading

Coercive Government?

Newly elected Cook County State's Attorney "Foxx said she plans to use the office in different ways, beyond things like defending county ordinances or representing county officeholders and agencies in litigation.

Newly elected Cook County State's Attorney "Foxx said she plans to use the office in different ways, beyond things like defending county ordinances or representing county officeholders and agencies in litigation.

“We’re going to be looking at innovative ideas and thoughts on how we can use our bureau to actively go after those who are harming the county, or where we’ve been aggrieved and seek remuneration for that. That’s one of the things we have to be proactive about,” Foxx said, noting the office’s fiduciary duty to the county."

Has the ugly arm of progressivism reached further into Cook County politics? At the state level, Lisa Madigan long ago stopped primarily enforcing Illinois laws and started using her office as a tool for her political agenda. Is Kimberly Foxx following in Madigan's footsteps? It may be too early to tell, but once we do know, it will be too late. Another politician using the full weight of the government to coerce citizens into going along with her progressive agenda.

One way traffic east bound on Albion

Twice in the past 7 days, when driving East on (one way st.) Albion, and approaching Sheridan Rd, I have encountered 2 cars on separate occasions, erroneously turning west into Albion by the hotel. There is barely room for one car and additionally there is a bike lane. Clearly a traffic hazard.

    EB is a public forum but it is privately owned and managed by COMCAST NBCUNIVERSAL and they establish the terms of use. That is why EveryBlock Moderator from EB's Philadelphia office warned at least three posters in the Rogers Park section of EB to reserve their postings for matters that are relevant to the Rogers Park community and to keep EveryBlock Rogers Park focused on neighborhood issues. Although "KK" can't reserve EB for anything, EB's owner can and has. KK understands that and abides by it unlike the three posters who received clearly stated warnings this morning.

    No one was warned. Posters were encouraged to keep conversation topics local in nature.
