Moving? I've got boxes!!

Hi RPers

I just moved and I have a lot of boxes of various sizes to give away. They are sturdy, and many of them have tops, since they are printer paper boxes.

I'll recycle them if I get no responses here, but I'd rather they get some more use and I know it's a big season for moving right now.

So, if you want them, feel free to reply here and we can work out details.

Thanks,

J.

What happens to PB funds when the project is put on hold or cancelled?

Seems several PB approved items have been placed on hold or cancelled. Seemingly 750 k in on hold/ cancelled items over 6 PB elections.

105k for 15 bike racks.
Bike lanes on Clark from Howard to Albion unknown $$.
Coblestone replacement cancelled due to cost.
Sheridan road pedestrian safety study was cancelled.

Looking at the PB site it is not clear what happens to allocated funds that are not used for the Democratically voted funds.

Howard "L" Station Cleaning

I was wondering if anyone else noticed how nasty the Howard station is lately? I know it's NEVER spotless and many "L" stations never are but I feel like it's been in rare form. Everything is filthy and smells of urine among other things.

Does anyone know if the cleaning has been halted or lessened due to the budget issues? Is there anything that we can do to address this? It's terrible that people have to travel through this day in and day out.

  • I've seen the occasional mess on CTA trains, but they're usually pretty clean. Howard station isn't bad, either. Every time someone complains how dirty it is, the next time I walk through it I wonder what they're talking about.

  • I agree, Omar. The Howard station isn't bad compared with say, the Red Line Jackson station. And the homeless situation isn't as bad as it is on the Blue Line O'Hare route. I am not in favor of persecuting the homeless. But the overall condition of the CTA trains and stations is as I described it. And opening toilets to the public would only create a new unsanitary condition. This is the city. There are public toilets everywhere, including steps away from the Howard station.

screaming man near pratt beach

hi all, anyone else notice the episodic screaming going on around pratt beach over the last 3-4 days? there's a man (50s-60s, grey hair, black coat) walking around from park bench to park bench, clearly with some kind of mental disorder. he'll start shaking faster and faster before screaming at the top of his lungs. super loud. he's out there yelling from 10 am well into 2-3 a.m. i feel awful for him, is there some sort of mental health service hotline/clinic i can call? i don't know what can be done really, and i don't want to call the police if he's not harming anything other than my sleep.

Drones in my neighborhood?

I need an outsiders perspective here. Would you support consumer Drones flying over your neighborhood in Rogers Park capturing footage of illegalities going on in areas known for crime? Seriously, I'm considering a consumer Drone with the capacity to fly a few miles and capture ultra high resolution video of illegalities in 'hotspot" areas. I'm leaning towards the DF-X6 model (see attached). All this would be in an effort to turn around the South Side community I live in so that the quality of life is improved. What say you? Is this a crazy Buck Rogers ambition here or is it something you would support?

  • I don't blame her a bit. EB has become nothing more than a forum for brats to hone their skills at being rude and insulting with the written word. They are probably OK in person.

It's hooker season again

They seemed to disappear as winter arrived. Just noticed they are drifting back into my neighborhood again. Two of them were actually sitting on the back steps (leading to the basement) of my building just before noon on July 4. I came back a couple hours later and there was a wet nap and an unused condom in a wrapper lying on the steps. Nice. Saw another one ambling down my street with a couple of male friends the next morning just before 6:00 a.m.

My question is, what's the most effective way of getting these, ahem, ladies out? Police? (311? 911?) Alderman? Any other suggestions?
