Peoples gas bill is beyond high!

Anyone have a huge bill from peoples gas these last couple months? We have a two bedroom and my goodness for one month it's 220 bucks!

  • It's a fluke to the extent that the bills will not continue to be at that level.

  • I just got done paying my bill. $130 this month. That's the lowest it's been. I used much. much less heat than last March (same average temps) yet still paid $30 more. Price has gone up. It's disgusting how much it cost me this winter. I was close to $300...

    I just got done paying my bill. $130 this month. That's the lowest it's been. I used much. much less heat than last March (same average temps) yet still paid $30 more. Price has gone up. It's disgusting how much it cost me this winter. I was close to $300 in January. I know it was cold, but my place isn't that big. Highway robbery. Last year the highest bill I believe was around $120 in the coldest month. And I routinely kept my place much warmer than I have this winter.

Slowest Chipotle Ever Built

Is it just me or can a Chipotle be whittled out of balsa wood faster than the one on Irving is getting done?

  • Randy Stroller

    We are something else and proud that you recognize that. Guys out there busting forms today. Glad I am too old to participate in such activities. I did rake up four bags of leaves and empty the trash in the Parklet though.

    You're not too old. You just need to exercise differently.

    I know a 67 year old ironworker.

Keep on eye on your cars...

Last night (Wednesday April 16th) at 7pm, I parked my car near the corner of Grace and Kenneth. This morning at 8 am, I got out to my car, started it, and found out that someone stole the catalytic converter from my car overnight. In order to do so, the thieves had to jack my car up (a 95 Pontiac Grand Am), crawl under it,and cut out the part. If you saw anything or have any information, please message me.

With the construction on Milwaukee, and all the cars that have to find alternate parking, please be keep an eye on your cars and your neighbors cars. Thanks.

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but they will likely target you again. I was at the police station filing police reports for our multiple car break ins over the winter (Kilbourn & Grace) and the police told me they come back because they know you had to replace the item and the new converter is what they are actually going after. Thank you for the heads up and sorry to hear your news.

  • Sue Portage Park-er

    I saw this happening one morning about 3-4 months ago. There were 2 vehicles involved, one likely the lookout. The guy doing the work was hispanic and drove off in an older silver minivan, maybe a Chevy Lumina, the pointy front one. The lookout was in a larger burgundy SUV with the Dove specialty license plate. Unfortunately it was too dark to get plate #s and when I called 911 the operator took the info but didn't really make me feel confident anything would happen with it.

  • Luther North College Prep reviewed by a parent

    My son's learning and social experience at Luther North has been spectacular. The teachers know every student and their families. As a parent, i know that I can call at any time and have my questions answered quickly and effectively. The principal cares about his students and encourages them to strive toward excellence. The teachers are there for the students and it shows in their dedication. The counselors work directly with each student. They guide the students toward the a variety of post high school venues, giving a multitude of college options to fit each student's situation. I cannot think of a better learning environment for my child and I am thankful each day that he attends such a student-driven high school.
