For all those wondering when the Mexican restaurant on Irving and Central was going to open. Wonder no more, they are open!!!

  • I meant had anyone tried Cabana on Irving, not Tarascas.

    CPS to test for lead in water at 28 elementary schools
    Chicago Public Schools announced Thursday the list of 28 elementary schools being tested for lead, a measure CEO Forrest Claypool insisted was being taken "out of an abundance of caution."

  • CJL ...

    "Wonder What really happened that raised a red flag to conduct testing for lead"

    Assuming this is a serious question:

    1. Flint.
    2. Chicago Tribune investigation that Chicago was using BS testing methodology in selecting locations for water quality testing.
    3. It's kids, who are most susceptible to bad effects of lead.

    I'd bet a dollar that *most* of the older south and west side schools will show elevated lead levels in the water. Probably not truly high, but elevated.

  • CJL

    This is a serious question

    I did not realize the entire importance of this testing lead

    Thanks for the info. Hopefully, there isn't any found

Oak Park and Grace crossing

How many more accidents and near misses of parents with their students are there going to be at the intersection of Oak Park and Grace?
Ever try to drive onto Oak Park from Grace street? How about crossing as a pedestrian, with your children? Apparently drivers think Oak Park Ave., both South and North bound think its a race to get to the next traffic signal. I live off the corner and have seen accidents from vehicles trying to turn...

How many more accidents and near misses of parents with their students are there going to be at the intersection of Oak Park and Grace?
Ever try to drive onto Oak Park from Grace street? How about crossing as a pedestrian, with your children? Apparently drivers think Oak Park Ave., both South and North bound think its a race to get to the next traffic signal. I live off the corner and have seen accidents from vehicles trying to turn north or south. Vehicles can not see oncoming traffic due to the parked trucks or cars on Oak Park. The cars turning from Grace are forced to ease out to see, sometimes its to late " BAM!" Speed Racer just took out your front end. By the grace of God I have seen near misses of pedestrians, thankfully no one was hit yet.

  • MAJOR problem from Harlem to oak park on Grace. Have seen more people NOT stop than stop at ALL stop signs along Grace. With bridge school on Grace you would think something could be done. They block right by school with barricades but many children walk Grace for blocks. Does...

    MAJOR problem from Harlem to oak park on Grace. Have seen more people NOT stop than stop at ALL stop signs along Grace. With bridge school on Grace you would think something could be done. They block right by school with barricades but many children walk Grace for blocks. Does a child have to be hit for something to be done? Very sad. Already spoke to aldermans office regarding this and it seems they show no commitment to actually looking into it to see if SOMETHING could be done. I realize this post started with Oak Park & Grace issue but thought since I was addressing Grace also that our post was fitting.

  • At Oak Park and Grace for school hours, a crossing guard. There has always been one at New England and Addison and Sayre and Addison. I do not know if the Bryon and Harlem one is still there.

    As I stated before, random enforcement with severe penalties will make most...

    At Oak Park and Grace for school hours, a crossing guard. There has always been one at New England and Addison and Sayre and Addison. I do not know if the Bryon and Harlem one is still there.

    As I stated before, random enforcement with severe penalties will make most abusers more cautious. I must say we grew up in this neighborhood with very few stop signs and survived. We were raised to be extremely careful crossing streets. After learning how to cross side streets the next level taught by our parents was how to cross the "busy" streets. Parents/Teachers . . .
