Military Planes?

Anyone know what's going on? Sounds like loud military planes are flying overhead.

Please don't say it has something to do with Trump.

  • Pedro G. Hillary lost, hoorah!

    Rob, how is he a "Nazi sympathizer"? Show your work.

    Funny that you don't seem to know what democratically elected means.

Power Outage

Anyone else have power outage last around 10:30PM?

Last night i noticed our whole block was without power. (Block 1700 W Greenleaf)
Our power went out briefly around 9:40pm only to fully go out at 10:30pm. Power was restored around 1AM i believe.

Who knew Rogers Park had so many LED flashlight users. lol

Buzzing / Humming / Droning Noise at Fargo & Sheridan?

Does anyone else notice a pretty pervasive buzzing / humming / droning noise at the corner of Fargo and Sheridan?

This seems to go on at all hours of the day and night, and although it gets drowned out a bit when traffic is heavy, it's especially disturbing later in the evening when the rest of the neighborhood is quiet.

Just wanted to see if anyone else has experienced this and if there are any recommendations as to what can be done. And if anyone has any ideas as to where exactly it might be coming from.

Thanks!

Albion at Glenwood closed illegally?

Albion at Glenwood closed by what appears to be an unauthorized block party. Street closed by blocking it with a car an some cones. There were not any no parking signs posted before the closure. Anyone know about this?

    Seems like a timely statement.

Glenwood Avenue Joins Facebook

Glenwood Avenue in Rogers Park joined Facebook and can be reached on email at info@rogerspark.cc courtesy of the local chamber. Brett of La Crosse, Wisconsin gives Glenwood Avenue a 5-star review at https://www.facebook.com/pg/Glenwood-Avenue-309108332585033/reviews/?ref=page_internal . Glenwood Avenue showcases local celebrities who oppose local business development, promotes GoFundMe events for struggling organizations, shares information about protesting additional CHA affordable housing for seniors and provides political commentary.

  • Reid Hyams X-Art Entertainment • Century 21 Universal

    Well it's about time Glenwood had a chamber certified Facebook page, In the meantime, when are the alleys going to get their own Facebook Pages?

  • Maybe alleys will get chamber certified Facebook pages if enough GoFundMe money rolls in to bail out the sinking chamber and its attempts to block new affordable housing for seniors. But right now potluck BBQs, blocking affordable housing for seniors and opposing new business on Sheridan Road seem to be higher chamber priorities than creating new Facebook pages for Rogers Park alleys. First things first.

  • How do moving costs for a one room office equal $6000? Lots of antiques or something?

  • It's probably the "or something" that will gobble up all the GoFundMe donations much the same as all the cash raised to buy a motorboat for the lifeguards a couple years ago. What happened to all that money for the motorboat? Rumor is that the chamber might rent unused floor space at the Midnight Mac and Cheesery.

Does Your Street Tweet?

No more than the President could live without his Twitter account, your street also should be able to tweet. Make sure that your street is enrolled in the free Streets of Rogers Park program in which it can have its very own Facebook page and Twitter account. Check out this free community service at http://rp1000.blogspot.com/2015/04/the-streets-of-rogers-park.html

    I've taken a brief look at who's who and what's what on "the street-tweet Facebook pages of the chamber and it appears: the content on each of these pages is always the same and generated by the RPCC; and the members of each page are the same people, although all of them cannot live on every RPCC Facebook street page...

    But don't believe me, go see for yourself.

    It appears the RPCC has overlooked Haskins Ave, but not to worry Helen - now that you brought it up, they'll populate that page immediately.

    If one were to follow the methodology and the same paradigm that the RPCC has taken, they could create a Facebook page for every garbage can in Rogers Park... and that would be far more exciting, than just only claiming the 'Stweets' of RP.

    Q. So if the RPCC does this, will they count all the private & city owned garbage cans as their own? After all, it would be a major coup for the RPCC to be able to claim all the Facebook garbage cans in RP. And will the bishop bless each one of those sacred cans? I would hope so.

    In which case the RPCC is missing a great revenue source "Private Tours of the Garbage Cans of Rogers Park"

    Unfortunately, GETBeaches is not planning any "costume play events, after dark dj spin parties, marshmallow bonfires and puppy costume parades" & I just don't know how we failed to get any of these on our agenda?

    Was it not the chambers support of the "after dark dj spin parties" at the Hard Water Cafe that caused the demise of that crime ridden 4 am restaurant / pub turned criminal night club - with gang violence, shootings and showdowns.

    A perfect example of the RPCC's unwavering support of the chamber's clienteles abuse + safety of our neighborhood and residents in the name of "commerce." Was it not the RPCC that went to their defense when the entire community demanded change or shutdown... https://www.dnainfo.com/chicago/20160518/rogers-park/hard-water-bar-grill-facing-city-hall-after-unacceptable-complaints (DNAinfo / May 18, 2016)

    From May 18, 2016 DNAinfo article: "Police in the Rogers Park District said they were "aware of numerous complaints and calls for service" and had issued the business several tickets in the past. Like Stambaugh, police said they were continuing to keep an eye on the business.

    But some disagree with the notion the bar is a problem.

    Bill Morton, president of the Rogers Park Chamber of Commerce, said he dines at Hard Water at least twice a week and his organization regularly hold events at the space. He didn't think of the bar as being unsafe, he said.

    As for complaints, Morton said he guessed it was only one resident who lived nearby that was responsible for the majority.

    Hard Water, which includes a restaurant and eating space, is open until 4 a.m. Sunday-Friday and 5 a.m. on Saturdays.

    "You should know what you're getting into when you live above a bar and a grill," Morton said. "This place has been a bar and grill for many incarnations ... and it's only one person, he's making a big stink out of it."

    Hard Water replaced Rolland's at its Chicago-Evanston border spot in 2014. Morton said though the business is a bar, it's also got a great menu.

    Morton described owner Amit Diamond and Devon Kelly, an events planner by trade who manages the bar, as a "power team" who provide a safe space for neighborhood kids to "eat pizza and drink sodas" on Thursday nights.

    Neither could be reached for comment"

    Speaks for itself.

Loud crash west of Farwell

Did anyone hear a large crash or explosion west of Farwell 10 minutes ago?

  • L

    If you read the original post, Omar, you would see that I did not post it nor did I specifically refer to west of Farwell in my post. I simply confirmed that I heard a noise without mentioning direction at any point.

    L, you responded to a post that makes no sense.
