    Sandy - I'm (obviously) not running the show, but in the "old days" (when the market was previously in the Armory parking lot), they disallowed all "public" parking -except- for people involved with the market, to make room for staff and vendors. They posted a sign late in the week and even towed remaining cars very early Saturday morning. Yes, it was inconsiderate for the Chamber to not notify the entertainment, but they're probably running around like headless chickens without Paula. Call them to make sure you're on the list to not be towed.

    Thanks. Ally will look into the situation on Monday and get back to me. Perhaps there will be some sort of vendor permit I can display on my car--if not, it’s gonna be a problem. In my younger days, I could easily busk standing outdoors in the sun with just my guitar for a couple of hours, sans amplification. Back then, though, I had no CDs to sell and keep track of. But at 64, I need a little help being heard outdoors over all the noise (and the L so close); and I have to pay closer attention to sun protection (not a problem at festivals, since stages are shaded). I also play a lot more mt. dulcimer now, which requires I either have a stand on which to lay it flat or a chair so I can play it on my lap. It was perfect having the market around the corner from me (w. of B’way, effectively a block further from the L) with Patio’s lot for parking, a tree for shade, and an AC outlet three feet away. I could also safely lock my purse in my car, out of sight.

    I didn't call you right-winh, your statement is completely vague and nebulous.

    Why don't you explain what a "so called" community is because it sounds...dumb.

About 10:55 p.m. Thursday, the off-duty officer was at a red light in his personal vehicle in the 2600 block of West Division when an SUV approached on the passenger side and people inside yelled gang slogans at him, police said.

  • I heard the shooters were from the Soap-on-a-Rope gang.

  • RAKARWOWSKI RETIRED CITY WORKER, CLEANING UP HUMBOLDT PARK

    What is it what that block that attracts bangers from all other the city to come there to shoot at people? Will Division street from Western to California always be a no mans land for bangers to kill each other? Time to tell the gangs that this is no longer their shooting gallery and like these two, only jail or worst awaits them here!

  • Michmine EHP

    These two must be crazy stupid to shoot at someone after he identifies himself as a cop. That's a no pass, go directly to jail situation. Gangbangers these days aren't exactly criminal masterminds, are they?
