CAPS Meeting Beat 2012

Wed, Aug 13, 2014 7pm

Hi neighbors. Please consider coming out. John Myles' murder at 1700 block of W Rosehill on April 9th is still under investigation and no one is in custody.

  • Oh my gosh! My heart just aches for the family and friends of John Myles. I so hope that who ever murdered this man is brought to justice and spends the rest of their natural lives never seeing the light of day again. What a waste of such a sweet human being. Who ever did this - you can run but you cannot hide. And you'll meet your maker one day and have to answer to a higher power but don't worry, it's a ry heat.

  • Bellaisteps Native north sider

    I called St. Gregory's central office today to confirm that the CAPS meeting location. St. Gregory confirmed they are hosting the CAPS meeting tonight. If you would like to call CPD to confirm the venue: 312-742-8714 but maybe wait until later today as the officer answering is getting a little cranky with the phone calls from other neighbors ;) No one at the 20th District had any knowledge of the meeting or the venue. Someone from CAPS is supposed to be at 20th later today.

The event will be held at the Chicago Northside Church of the Nazarene at 1900 W. Leland Avenue. Sgt. Jason Clark from the 19th District CAPS team will be on-hand for what should be an informative meeting as well as an opportunity to discuss any local crime issues and concerns that you might have.

In addition to providing helpful tips and reminders regarding public safety awareness, one of the main goals of the meeting is to discuss ways in which residents can become more involved in keeping our neighborhood a safe place in which to live. The agenda for the meeting is as follows:

Neighborhood crime updates (specifically Beat 1912 and nearby areas)
Public safety reminders, including:
How to avoid being a victim
Reporting crime and issues (911 versus 311, etc.)
Graffiti and gang activity
Community involvement tips and strategies, including:
CAPS and CAPS meetings - why they are important!
Court Advocacy program
Neighborhood watches
West Ravenswood Neighbors public safety committee

If you would like more information and/or to be added to our mailing list, please email westravenswoodneighbors@gmail.com.

  • J, do you think this would be a meeting to bring up increased airplane noise as well? Although this is not safety related, I have seen several people posting about it and was wondering if this would be the time or place to address this. Thanks!

  • J Lifelong Chicagoan and a Ravenswood Resident

    Hi JulL, since the focus of this meeting is on crime and general public safety, I'd recommend raising the airplane noise issue at one of the Wednesday-night Ward nights (http://chicago47.org/the-ward/ward-night/). Looks like there's one coming up this Wednesday, actually. You're certainly welcome to bring this up at our Thursday public safety event, but I'd be worried that we won't have the right person or people there to address it.

I'm home all day if anyone wants to come pick these items up--I'd take them to Goodwill, but don't have a car and Salvation Army only comes during the week while I'm at the office.

I have photos and can email them if anyone's interested.

  • The frame is two pieces. They are easily carried, just long and awkward.

There will be break for refreshments and fellowship

What is it?

Sacred Harp singing is a tradition of sacred choral music that took root in the Southern region of the United States. It is part of the larger tradition of shape note music. Sacred Harp music is performed a cappella (voice only, without instruments) and originated as Protestant Christian music. The songs sung are primarily from the book "The Sacred Harp."

The music is sung from "The Sacred Harp" songbook and a number of loaner music books will be available for this event.

The cost is free, though there will be "passing of the hat" for a freewill donation. The refreshments are pot luck, so if you are planning to come and can bring something, it would be appreciated.

More information can be found here:

Let's make this happen! :)
--------------------

Over six albums and two decades of recording, Jill Sobule has mused on topics such as the death penalty, anorexia, shoplifting, reproduction, the French resistance movement, adolescence and the Christian right. Early hit songs include "I Kissed a Girl" and "Supermodel."

Jill inducted Neil Diamond into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame. She has performed with Neil Young, Billy Bragg, the late Warren Zevon, and has been a political troubadour for NPR stations across America. She is an American original.

"Jill Sobule can claim her place among the stellar New York singer-songwriters of the last decade. Topical, funny and more than a little poignant ... grown-up music for an adolescent age." — The New York Times

    Dear House Concert Hosts,

    Dear House Concert Hosts,

    How about also supporting gifted local and regional performing songwriters who have seen our pool of available Chicago-area venues dwindle (most recently, Stained Glass Coffeehouse; over the years we’ve lost the Earl of Old Town, Somebody Else’s Troubles. the Barbarossa, the Spot, Amazingrace, Changes, the Quiet Knight, Grounds For Appeal, Single File, His & Hers, the Artful Dodger, Holstein’s, Orphan’s, Ratso’s, and No Exit--which now hosts music only intermittently). Not to mention those who no longer have live music.

    Sobule is nationally-known; but most national touring artists do not set anywhere near that high a fee, if they even demand one at all? And that the usual suggested donation for house concert guests is $15-20 at most (plus some potluck goodies to share)?

    Moreover, if a house concert is advertised in social media, it might be a target of the PROs (performing rights organizations) such as ASCAP, BMI, and SESAC. PROs employ collectionists who do nothing but troll the Web and local newspapers in search of venues to hit up for license fees. (They even harass restaurants and retail stores that play music over their sound systems to benefit customers)! Currently, only house concert series that are members of Folk Alliance International are exempt from purchasing PRO licenses. There’s also the question of liability insurance and local ordinances and permits.

    House concerts were originally devised as an alternative to vanishing venues for working performers to make ends meet while giving audiences exposure to a wide variety of artists (some of whom would charge far more in a theater or arena) and meet and mingle with them. When major artists take over the house concert circuit, and charge as much as or more than clubs like Park West, not only do the lesser-known but still talented artists suffer but so do other available venues.

It examines homelessness through the lens of Mark Horvath, whose passion, InvisiblePeople.tv, shows social media's potential to democratize and empower those less fortunate by giving voice to those who are rarely heard.

@home follows Mark on a whirlwind road trip across the country, as he interviews people who are newly and chronically homeless in tent cities, under bridges, and in by-the-week motels. From Las Vegas to Arkansas, we explore the toll that homelessness has had on Mark himself, too, sharing with the camera and his thousands of followers on Twitter and Facebook his fight to rebuild his life while devoting himself to helping others. Challenging stereotypes, @home gets to know the people in your community who are struggling to stay in their homes and asks us all to question how invisible we’ve allowed them to become.

Ride for AIDS Chicago is a two-day, 200-mile; bicycling event produced by Test Positive Aware Network (TPAN) and designed to raise needed monies for TPAN and people living with HIV and AIDS in the Chicago-land area. The ride leaves on Saturday morning July 12th from Evanston, IL and on into Wisconsin. Riders return to Chicago on Sunday July 13th followed by closing ceremonies. Unlike other rides of this kind, Ride for AIDS Chicago is committed to returning 100% of its pledges to the beneficiaries. This is a a grassroots event, committed to keeping costs as low as possible.

What we'll be doing
One Brick volunteers will be assisting during the Closing Ceremonies in EVANSTON (Civic Center - 2100 Ridge Ave.) by ushering, cheering on riders and handing out info. We will also need "all hands on deck" for the wrap where we will be striking the tents and stage, packing up supplies. We will then travel to TPAN's offices in the city and unload the truck (5050 N. Broadway, Chicago, IL).
