Officers found a man, thought to be in his 50s, unresponsive on the sidewalk with a gunshot wound to the head in the 1500 block of West 72nd Street about 12:45 a.m., according to police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.

William Lewis, 28, was standing on the street in the 1300 block of West Devon Avenue about 3:20 p.m. when someone walked up, pulled out a weapon and shot him in the back, police said.

About 1:15 a.m., a 47-year-old man got into an argument with a mother and son in the 6200 block of South Rockwell Street, left the apartment, then returned with a gun and shot both people in the chest, police said.

The shooting happened in the 5200 block of West Quincy Street, police said.

Two 16-year-old boys were standing on the sidewalk in the 2400 block of West 63rd Street when a white van drove past and someone inside fired shots, police said. Both teens were shot in the leg and taken in “stable” condition to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.

Am I going insane? Airplane noise is constant!

So, I moved to Ravenswood almost a year ago, near Lawrence and Hermitage. And once EveryBlock was available again, I got right back on and noticed a LOT of complaints about the noise pollution caused by overhead airplanes. For a long time, I thought everyone complaining was being a little dramatic; the noise was not that loud, and we live in a large city somewhat near one of the nation's busiest airports. Plus, planes have to land somewhere!
BUT -...

So, I moved to Ravenswood almost a year ago, near Lawrence and Hermitage. And once EveryBlock was available again, I got right back on and noticed a LOT of complaints about the noise pollution caused by overhead airplanes. For a long time, I thought everyone complaining was being a little dramatic; the noise was not that loud, and we live in a large city somewhat near one of the nation's busiest airports. Plus, planes have to land somewhere!
BUT - in the past few weeks or so, I have started to side with the complainers! But am I going crazy? I SWEAR this noise is so much louder now, and pretty much constant. I have been woken up repeatedly by it. Are the planes flying lower? Did they decide to route even more landings this way?! I know this is a common topic on here, so I really do apologize if I am clogging your feed. Basically I want to know what I can do. I know I can contact Pawar but is there anything further?? Meetings to attend? I feel like I am losing my mind with this noise - it is insanely loud! Thanks, and sorry again if this is too redundant!

  • Two articles about the decision to install more noise monitors over city areas:

    It seems unlikely that any of the monitors will be slated to go in in the 46th or 47th wards directly under the E-W flight paths, though...

    It seems unlikely that any of the monitors will be slated to go in in the 46th or 47th wards directly under the E-W flight paths, though it appears that the 40th ward will have some say.

    It's also surprising that no one has raised the issue of noise impact on the Montrose Bird Sanctuary, which is directly under the flight path for the new runway. It's one of only a very few Illinois Natural Area Inventory sites in the whole region and is an important migratory bird sanctuary.

    You are not crazy, the noise is louder and more constant. I'm already planning to petition for lower property taxes. This definitely impacts property values in the area. Maybe they will pay attention if all the communities band together and fight to pay lower taxes. That would be a significant amount of money the city and county would lose.
