Town hall meeting at Copernicus Center?

Did anyone attend? I wasn't able to go. I'm curious about what was discussed and about the overall vibe of the event. I'd love a first-hand account of how it went. Thanks.

Does anyone know churches in the area that do trunk or treating for Halloween?

  • And I recall another householder who'd carefully open candy wrappers and replace the candy with a bit of rounded wood. Sanded to a good shape. Never figured it out despite being victimized a couple of years.

  • I volunteer at st.pascals haunted house and yes we have a fall family fun fest oct.17 there will be a car show starting at 9:00am and the fest starts at 11:00 until 3:00 there be games, bounce house, petting zoo, candy, and much more check out web site catacombshh.com. Kids can wear costumes, great event for the entire family. Adult haunted house will start at 7:00pm on same day

FREE car wash

The music boosters from Smyser elementary are sponsoring a car wash fundraiser on Saturday 9/26 from 11-2. The wash is totally free, but donations of any size will be gladly accepted.

Our school is proud to offer students performance opportunities in band, choir, string orchestra, and dance. We're raising funds to sustain and improve our program.

All proceeds go directly to our music program. Come support your local musicians!

  • Thanks, neighbors. We had a great day and raised almost $800!!! Wonderful community spirit.

  • I am so glad. Unfortunately I had to work and couldn't participate. I hope they have another one soon when I don't have to work.

Rahm's property tax increase

The proposed property tax increase including a so-called homestead exemption will do nothing for the homeowners in the Dunning community.
Between Cook County Assessor Joseph Berrios (D) current effort to reassess all of the property in Chicago, after the real estate market started to rebound, and Mayor Emmanuel's (D) property tax increase the taxpayers from the northwest side will be hit with a double whammy of real estate tax increases next year.
Tell your state representative and state senator to be aware before falling lockstep with Emmanuel, Madigan and Cullerton!

  • Chart in Thursday's Sun Times shows that Emmanuel's proposed homestead exemption will do absolutely nothing for homeowners on the northwest side.

  • 600 million in increased real estate taxes for the City plus 45 million for the school system.
    1% increase in sales tax for the County.
    Madigan and Cullerton have yet to tell us the 3 billion in taxes they need to find to cover the State spending they desire.
    Pity the workingman in this City!

Nice in the alley and backyard

I live on the 2900 blk of Neva. Since the bowling alley has been torn down, I've noticed a lot of mice in the alley and in our yard. If anyone else is having the same problem please call 311 or file a city service request online. I've also noticed that our yard has been invaded by large spiders. They make a cone web. They are pretty cool but after counting over 20 of them, I will be spraying my yard.

  • Remember, these spiders (harmless to humans) will consume a lot of unwanted insects, including mosquitos.

  • What do you want the city to do ? The city does not do any extermination for insects. The do do rodent baiting but unless you want your yard baited they will not cobtact you. Check the telephone poles for notification of the last baiting
