Montrose closure?

Does anyone have any details on the closing of westbound Montrose at Cicero on May 4th? This info is from the flashing sign on northbound Cicero, just south of Montrose.

Carry and conseal holder is a hero

Authorities say no charges will be filed against an Uber driver who shot and wounded a gunman who opened fire on a crowd of people in Logan Square over the weekend.

The driver had a concealed-carry permit and acted in the defense of himself and others, Assistant State's Attorney Barry Quinn said in court Sunday.

A group of people had been walking in front of the driver around 11:50 p.m. in the 2900 block of North Milwaukee Avenue when Everardo Custodio, 22, began firing into the crowd, Quinn said.

Peoples Gas Disaster

I know it's been mentioned before about the problems associated with the meter installations with Peoples Gas, but they are reaching new lows. They have all the sidewalks on Melvina ripped up with school starting back on Monday. I think a personal injury attorney or two may get some nice business next week when a child gets injured.

Block Club?

If anyone who lives near Belmont & Austin/Narraganett would be interested in starting a block club, please let me know. With the recent shootings in and around the area, I think it would be best to come together as a community and get to know each other better. I saw a post a while back that had info to help others start their own block club. I will have to find it and take it from there. This is still a decent area, good neighbors and I would like to keep it that way! Thanks!

  • Laymaneers Constant Vigilance

    For anyone who wants to start their own block club I wrote down the process we went thru a few weeks back. I think our block club is the only actual registered club on the NW Side. We've been established for going on our third year.

    Here's the link to my post and the info is in the comments.


    Kelly set up the facebook group as way for block clubs (literally one block) in our area to keep in communication with each other. I think the hope is that we get a ton of block clubs established this spring and we can hopefully organize some larger community events soon, with the help of the page she made.

    If anyone wants more clarity on what I wrote please let me know!


    Kelly lets have a block party that would be cool!!!!!

Man shows up at OLR Shot ! 1:17 am Saturday hapend by Chicago by nite !

  • The insurance is free but no pension. That's ok though cuz you'll still get a full ride section 8 if u happen to live that long. If you get shot up and they unfortunately save you and your paralyzed, your also covered. Free disabled ride. No worries!!!!

  • LD

    If getting shoot or arrested the section 8 should be canceled when gang crime is involved.Gang crime which involve drugs or robbery . I guess this BS is always going to go on and the people who cause it will always be doing the crazy actions. It seems we all can do is keep score and record. Keep safe and on guard folks and call in on the crime people . With out the police we all are on our own . Happy Easter if you all are believer .

Male white in his 20s, baby blue hoodie, Bears hat , Robbed CVS Pharmacy and stuck employee with a herion needle , happend at 4-1-2015 7:30 pm suspect fled west bound on Addision

  • I have an android, I seem to have found one that's working though. Wish I would have found it sooner, I'm always hearing sirens by me and I'm always wondering what's going on.

  • A&K

    Well, it's good to know crime is going down. That must explain why Portage parks safety rating was dropped. Business as usual though. It looks like Rahm may get a second term so that means it will just get worse. Hold on tight. It's going to be a bumpy ride.

    First off there are no speed cameras at Newport and Menard. So I'm confused by comments. You can put up all the cameras and bs you want. Stupid people are just that, Stupid. I've never understood why anyone would think stop signs or red lights or cameras are going to prevent idiots from being idiots. Did you ever see gang bangers fly down a street with speed bumps, I did, they never slowed down, just flew right over them. None of this stuff prevents bad stuff from happening. All we can do is be watchful, and if were really disgusted by it, Move, to the country. But then they'd complain about the animals. I know it's not right, but all we can do, if we live here is learn how to deal with it and be careful. Cause no matter what you do, outside of having a cop on every block, always, There's nothing we can do about it. Also, think of this, maybe the girl had a medical crisis, seizure. Or, accelerator stuck. But then again we all know you never did anything stupid when you were young. Guessing she was young by earlier comments.

  • I was being sarcastic since I think the speed cameras are money-grabbing bull.
