We Won -- in two categories

Readers may recall my post earlier this month, Vote for Rogers Park, the Reader poll in which our neighborhood was in the running as best in three categories. We didn't win for overall neighborhood but did for diversity and affordability.

    Any thoughts?

    You are attempting to initiate a discussion based on a fallacious premise. What you have laid out is a form of a false choice. Your question is, basically, does A = B or does B = A and doing that ignores choices C, D, E, etc.

    But good luck with that! I am off to dinner! Cheers!

    There are many things that I like about Rogers Park. The property taxes are not one of them.

The next Sizzling Summer Book Sale is scheduled on June 24, 2017 from 10 AM to 4 PM. at the Rogers Park Library at 6907 N. Clark St. Our book sales raise funds to supplement the book budget of the Rogers Park Library, and this year we are helping to make the Summer Learning Challenge our biggest yet. During last year’s Learning Challenge, our Rogers Park Library hosted over 2000 students.

Our book sales depend solely on the help of volunteers. One person is currently sorting the donated books from our neighbors. He triages donated books and recycles the older and worn books.

Other volunteers display the near mint-condition books on tables, and they grouped the books together as non-fiction, fiction or children’s books.

On the day of the sale, volunteers serve as cashiers, and re-sort the books that may be shuffled by customers. At 4 PM, we close the sale, and pack most of the unsold books to the Better World Books and some books are saved for the next book sale.

We deposit the money from these book sales into a fund that our librarians use to buy new books when the regular book budget is depleted. They buy mainly children’s books, and books that help those starting on their careers or GED books. These books enhance our library’s collection, and make our collection valuable to learners of all ages. Also additional materials are being bought for this year's Summer Learning Challenge.

We hope that you will volunteer to help at our next book sale or buy an armload of books. Sign up to volunteer at the reference desk and help on June 23 or 24.

Kitchen & Bathroom remodel

Looking for any referrals for remodeling our kitchen and bathroom. Mid-range. Kitchen is 200SF, Bathroom 50SF - in a 1910 single family. Updating but trying to fit with the house's craftsman-ish character. Already have kitchen and cabinet layout, bathroom is just replacing fixtures and finishes.

Always seems to be an abundance of knowledge and opinions on EB.

Thanks in advance!

  • Tony with Tripp Builders (773) 870-2652 recently remodeled our 1930s kitchen in our 1917 single family home and he did an unbelievably great job. He's also remodeled 2 of our bathrooms over the years. Very honest and good to work with. Does most of work himself so may take a little longer, but well worth it for the finished product. Can figure things out with old homes. Highly recommend.

    Christ Church of Chicago, started in 1946 by Japanese-Americans who were released from Relocation Camps after WW2, worshipped at many different locations in Chicago until they bought their first church in 1954 down on Buckingham Place in Lakeview. Then, after years of declining membership that forced them to sell the old church, they worshipped at many different places before purchasing their current home in 2000 at 6047 N. Rockwell in West Ridge, the former St. Mark’s Lutheran Church. Is that the church claimed to have been in Rogers Park? If so, the real fact is that the church is in West Ridge. It's west of Western down near Peterson. It's a story of struggle, perseverance and success.

    No the church was in Rogers Park. There was an English service and a Japanese service. Many of the congregation have moved beyond the veil.
    The 442 never sought fame, they simply led exceptional lives and why my message of gratitude was so simple.

nail salon with good sanitation practices and good manicures?

I'm looking for a nail salon where they have good sanitation/hygiene with all the tools, etc, where I can get a good manicure.

  • JVG

    I've tried them all and Pure Salon on Morse outshines them all.

  • Cool. I currently have tips and gel because I bite my nails and they are always thin, so for now I'll try Gingerslam, but Pure looks great too.

The Birds Have Returned to Howard

In 2015, six whimsical paintings of birds appeared on the Hello Howard Garden fence. The works by John Airo have delighted passersby. Apparently they migrate south for the winter, but they are back again this year. One of the birds perhaps found a mate elsewhere and has not returned. Come take a look if you haven't seen them.

I feel as if I owe everyone here a thank you because I've been a continual lurker here since I decided to move back to Chicago (born there and lived there until my teens). I made the decision a year ago to move back in June, 2017, and finally put down a deposit on a place last week. I am so excited, and reading all of the posts here was such a huge help in my decision-making process. I stayed at Airbnbs in Rogers Park several times this summer, first attracted to the area by cheaper rents, and from the first weekend I spent in your community, I was captivated. And seeing the civic pride displayed on Rogers Park's Everyblock has made me feel so happy and honored to be part of it soon. So I just wanted to say thank you and hello!

  • Anna , I moved here 26 years ago and I love Rogers Park too! There is a true neighborhood friendliness, and over the years I have seen our development ..and also care for beautification too... This is the BEST neighborhood :)

A lot of sirens

Hey Neighbors,
Does anyone know what all the sirens were about this morning? It woke me up around 5:30ish. It sounded like it was in the vicinity of Clark and Devon.

Sad

To the woman who's beloved dog passed at greenview and farwell im deeply sorry. I was looking for parking and each time i passed you i was saddened. If anyone knows her give her a hug.

  • Sarahdonis Nearly 30 years in Edgewater; love RP & A'ville

    soooo sad

  • I am so sorry to hear about this. I have three cats and a dog in my family and they all bring joy each and every day. I am at a loss for words but know that in your heart that your dog was loved and loved you unconditionally. Time heals and take that love and open your heart to another dog who will provide you with much happiness! Take care of yourself!
