    This was not vandalism! This was forceable entry/burglary! Vandalism is graffiti. The only reason nothing was missing is because I do not keep valuables in my car. My garage door was split in two the deadbolt bent. I found my car door, glove box, and trunk open.

    One of the things that is interesting in my being the dumbest guy in the room while watching people work on the Chicago Justice Project and the 26th and California project is how initial charges are made then they change as prosecuters from the city, county and state begin to do their work. Then of course the plea bargain process kicks in as well. In short though initial charges and final charges in reports like this are most often the one considered most important in dollars. That is our system so if a person is raped and beaten then their cell phone is stolen the theft would be the lead on the report.

Hopefully the candidates will start, you know, saying stuff. For that many candidates, this has been a pretty dull race so far.

Also an EB note: If you try to post to a particular ward, EB is still using the OLD ward maps. Someone might want to change that!

Educational Camps in Our Neighborhood?

As Christmas nears, some summer camp registrations open up, like Chicago Botanic Garden and Camp Invention, as per links below. Some camps provide an incentive for signing up earlier like the opportunity to break up the payment into installments or getting some upfront discount. However, many quality camps are far away from home and we often wonder why?

As Christmas nears, some summer camp registrations open up, like Chicago Botanic Garden and Camp Invention, as per links below. Some camps provide an incentive for signing up earlier like the opportunity to break up the payment into installments or getting some upfront discount. However, many quality camps are far away from home and we often wonder why?

Some high schools have realized that offering their space for summer camps is a win-win for all the parties involved. Resurrection H.S. offers a hugely attended Camp Invention. DePaul College Prep, previously known as Gordon Tech, offers Green Apple Campus. Whether these schools charge for summer freed-up space or not, the camps can act as their marketing tool and buildup their good neighbor image. The program providers get both transactional and relational rewards. And, the local families benefit in a number of ways, like the nearby location, hopefully the neighborhood-adjusted-cost and get acquainted with the local educational providers.

During my recent conversation with Intrinsic Schools, based on my own experience with the CPS programming and from reading about ACT testing and beyond, I realized that our children are greatly in need of writing workshops, not just a stronger STEAM focus, which rightfully gets lots of attention due to its own merits. Since writing is not being tested on standardized tests, I found that it is not the focal point of the school experience.

I hope that our community leaders will find ways to fill this writing void with companies like 826CHI and will address other well-known educational needs by leveraging their relationships and other resources.
