Why are the 21st Ward Interested Parties for Alderman Scared to Address the 87th Street Situation

It's apparent to me that the interested parties for 21st Ward Alderman are going to ignore the new 21st ward constituents coming from Chatham. Although Chatham residents have loudly stated their displeasure with the cadre of vendors, phony fundraising, buckets boys, etc.it appears that if those who are announced intentions to run will turn a deaf ear to their concerns. Again, there is an ordinance that prohibits solicitation of any kind that runs from 87th Ryan to Western on the...

It's apparent to me that the interested parties for 21st Ward Alderman are going to ignore the new 21st ward constituents coming from Chatham. Although Chatham residents have loudly stated their displeasure with the cadre of vendors, phony fundraising, buckets boys, etc.it appears that if those who are announced intentions to run will turn a deaf ear to their concerns. Again, there is an ordinance that prohibits solicitation of any kind that runs from 87th Ryan to Western on the west and another one that runs from the Ryan to Cottage Grove on the East.. So I guess the 21st ward doesn't start until Halsted and runs West for election purposes because these same individuals were silent on the Concepts Charter- Clay Evans debacle.

Do any of you have some courage to refute me?

Why not in the 21st Ward

Why can't we have the Obama School in the 21st Ward. There are plenty of open spaces available for the school. Doris Lewis Brooks, candidate for Alderman of the 21st Ward says," If CPS can close almost 50 schools, but work diligently to secure a location for the $60 million proposed selective enrollment high school named after President Obama, then the school should be located in the 21st ward. To bring a school of this caliber to the ward would instill a sense of pride and honor to the citizens of Chicago in general and to the African-American community in particular"'

  • Knowing the city, theyll build it from scratch. They'll say the other buildings are old &outdated. See a lot of potential spots in my ward(21) that could be put to use. Hirsch is a pretty cool school to be renamed but again, I doubt they'll do that. @Casey, I thought the newsletter was informative. Brookins shouldn't open his mouth considering he hasn't put one out since last election. Guess we were supposed to be impressed because it was in color!

  • Jeff Janulis CAPS Rep

    Knowing the city, they will build it from scratch for white neighborshoods/students (North Side Prep, Walter Payton, Jones).
    In black communities they rehab old worn out buildings (Lindblom, Mendel/Brooks).
    To build new in black communities, it is for vocatonal schools (Simeon). Tells you what their plans are for us - to always work for them.

  • Barnard Elementary Comp Math & Science Center reviewed by a parent

    A change has come this past year! I think Barnard is a great school in much transition (in a positive direction). They have a very hands-on principle and assistant principle who work with students and parents to help children reach their potential goals. As with any schools in transition, I believe that once they have managed some of their challenges and receive more parental support, the school will be very competitive with other academically excelling schools in the Beverly Area. I am very concerned about the low parental involvement because this directly impacts the success of students. However, the administration is working to have great workshops for parents, great before and after school programs for the students and if we want the school to be the best it can be, parents, please get involved and support your kids by finding out how you can help in the school. They have parental groups during the day and even evenining hours with rich information that can help the kids excel. The principle and assistant principle are very committed to being available for these programs as well and work around the clock. We need to give them the same support they give to OUR kids.

Concepts Charter Indiana Offices Raided by FBI

There is work going on at 8522 S Lafayette (Old Soft Sheen Plant) in anticipation of Concepts Charter School. Horizion Science and Math Academy opening. This Charter school was supported by Alderman Howard Brookins and the Rev Charles Jenkins of Fellowship MBC which owns the property. Per reports out of Indiana one of the schools in run by this organization is under investigation by the FBI

  • CMWP Ward21 Citizen, Librarian, & PBS TV Host

    What got me was the pic with Ragm. And one can only imagine what will be Jenkin's sermon this Sunday. And Democratic Machineman Brokins...no need to waste words but he'll do what he does best: possum.

    Aren't you sick and tired of being sick and tired of folks taking the intent of charters to make massive amounts of money?

Staples Leaving West Chatham

Staples Leaving West Chatham
Received an email today from Staples corporate that effective 7/19/14 that Staples at 87th Dan Ryan will be closing for good. The 75th Stony Island store is already closed. What would you like to see in this space? What businesses does Alderman Howard B Brookins Jr plan to pursue?

  • I would like to see a Micro Center type store that carries and services electronics and sells some office supplies.

  • That would be nice, but again, they would not be able to compete with the wal-mart price monster.
