Clean up Damen

anyone interested in getting together early one morning next weekend and picking up some of the trash along Damen between Chicago and Augusta? I'd love to try and make my neighborhood look at least a little better!

  • Carlos Munoz CostaRicaCarlos

    I'm still up for it. Let's pick a date. Saturday morning the 15th?

  • Vanessa, West Town Resident interested in improving the community.

    I cannot make that date as I will be out of town, but I am so pleased to see there are residence interested in cleaning up the trash blowing around our streets. (I pick up at least a bag everyday outside my condo) I will certainly be interested in not only helping when I get back, but also finding a way to encourage residence to use their bins responsibly so that the trash doesn't even make it onto the street. How about that?

Chicago Bears offensive lineman Jordan Mills kicked off the "Get Schooled, Get Connected Challenge" at Clemente High School last month when he personally challenged 300-plus students in attendance to the semester-long contest. The challenge uses a technology-based platform of games, pop culture, localized information, recognition and rewards to engage and motivate 13- to 19-year-old students to prepare for college.

Through the first month of the challenge, Alcott High School holds a slim lead over Washington High School. Adler Planetarium, Chicago Commons and CICS Chicago Quest round out the top 5. You can visit the full leaderboard by visiting https://getschooled.com/challenges/getconnected-chicago/.

The top finishers will share $75,000 in available grant money.

Students are able to access the “Get Schooled, Get Connected Challenge” via the portal located at www.chicagocityoflearning.org/. Once students are on the portal, they will:

*Click the Get Schooled Challenge box and gain access to educational tools, resources and games.

*Students earn points for each quest they complete and make progress toward earning one of the college-ready badges.

*The students with the most points and badges at the end of the challenge will be invited to a celebration with an “A-list” celebrity in January 2015.

“This is a great challenge that will help motivate students to use technology to work on college entrance exams, college applications and financial aid,” said Kayla Triche, team captain of the Clemente girls volleyball team. “This really will be a motivator to get students to apply and attend college."

For additional information, make sure you check out the local news coverage of the kickoff event on Comcast News Makers at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5yxAqKNWReg/.

Hit and run accident Damen and Augusta Oct 22, 745 AM

Hi everybody,
My girlfriend and I were involved in a three car accident Wednesday morning where the driver at fault left the scene in which injuries were sustained. The offender was a white woman in her forties, overweight, with short hair, driving an early 2000's Lincoln continental or similar vehicle. Her vehicle has extensive damage to the front and should need repair. Any help tracking her down would be greatly rewarded. Thanks!!!

  • Check the auto-repair shops in whichever part of the city and surrounding it happened in. Tell whoever you speak to you'll give them a $100 reward (and then do it). Find the lady and make her pay. Dire consequences for hit and run.

  • Vehicle color?
