    I don't even have enough time in the day to sift through all of these comments.

    Do in have children of my own? No. Do I VOLUNTEER for a school function that raises money so the tuition rates don't have to go through the roof? Yes.

    I don't even have enough time in the day to sift through all of these comments.

    Do in have children of my own? No. Do I VOLUNTEER for a school function that raises money so the tuition rates don't have to go through the roof? Yes.

    You can't blame Fr. Paul because tuition rates go up or because the "carnival sucks". Tuition has gone up at every Catholic school, including high schools that don't have a parish attached to them. Tuition rates go up because more and more parents don't care about the education their children receive.

    I'm not here to attack anyone personally - but if you'd like to have a face-to-face with me, I'm not hard to find when October rolls around.

    As for the people who are against this - thank you for reminding me why we live in America, where we have every right to voice our opinion. I'm glad you actually care about your children, but keep this in mind - these women care about their children as well, so much so that they made the decision NOT to abort, even with deadbeat fathers around.

    I say fight it all you want - that's your right. But your right doesn't mean you're right.

    It doesn't mean I'm right either.

  • Brian Ward The haunted house guy

    Oh, and a final thought: in my 25+ years at Pascal's, I've been in the Convent twice. What in the world would the children even do in there? The courtyard is great and all, but the parking lot is way better for recess. You can't use chalk on grass.

    What kind of recess doesn't have hopscotch?!

Rooming houses

Just curious if anyone else has neighbors who have rehabbed their single family bungalow and turned it into a boarding house? We have two on our block. It's becoming increasingly difficult to park anywhere near my house. One "tenant" has a car and two work vans. There are at least 10 extra cars on the block from the 2nd house. I could park in my garage, but I'm afraid of the rats attracted by my neighbor who leaves food out for the pigeons. :(

  • We have this problem with one of the houses that is constantly for rent. Last year, an entire soccer team from Ireland rented the house for the summer. Now there are multiple families in there for a few months at a time and the garage is rented out to a mechanic who blocks the alley everyday.

  • A&K

    Do one better, take a few pictures quietly and also maybe a video using your phone. Proof is in the pudding. Then file a complaint with your evidence.

Let's Take Our State Back!

It is time to change the leadership of Illinois. Instead of growing poverty and crime, let's grow self sufficiency and pride. Let's empower our people with quality education, jobs and hope for the prosperous future, especially for our children.

    @Minerva, that all sounds great. Professionals with multiple degrees should receive a fair salary or wage for their job/time, and have excellent benefits. Thanks for all of the information. You'll have to do a lot more to convince me teachers don't deserve the benefits they receive and have bargained for.

Irving Park Rd (Bet. Harlem & Cumberland)

Since last fall, I became outwardly concerned with the state of Irving Park Rd near my home. Our Illinois Route 19 acts much like highway, between Harlem Ave. and Cumberland Ave. There are two cemeteries on each side of it, which are Acacia Park Cemetery and Irving Park Cemetery. Cars ZOOM BY with little concern for the pedestrians and bikers. Anyone who would pull a traffic report would note that deadly accidents and bumper to bumper accidents are not a stranger here! Two of my neighbors were KILLED over the past two years, one on a bike and one in the car. This year, someone just DROVE THROUGH the rusted-out fence into Irving Park Cemetery. Often KIDS on bikes, MOTHERS with strollers and ELDERLY with their shopping carts either struggle through the gravel and mud filled paths, where used to be once concrete sidewalks on "both" sides of the road, or they maneuver their equipment into the street. These both northern and southern sidewalks used to be functional until they were abandoned in the late 1960's or so. If anyone would talk to the CROSSING guard by N. Pioneer Ave, ours is Kristen, would learn of the frequent dangers of crossing the street. She will be back in the fall when the school restarts and would appreciate having traffic lights installed, too. The requests to fix these sidewalks have bounced around various public offices with mixed results. I PLEA with all concerned citizens to assist me with getting this overdue safety issue resolved by contacting all politicians overseeing or soon-to-be overseeing this area. Hearing from the community-at-large vs. one neighborhood mother is far more impactful I am told. Thank you!!!

Please e-mail your support for the sidewalks to:

Senator Mulroe at senatorjohnmulroe@att.net;
Representative Martwick at repmartwick@gmail.com;
Alderman Sposato at info@aldermansposato.com; and
Alderman Cullerton at Timothy.Cullerton@cityofchicago.org.

Box tops?

So teenage kids knocking at doors looking for box tops for a fundraiser. Is that legit? Maybe I'm just being paranoid, but they only knocked at our house and then left the block.
