The Obama Foundation announced the four finalists today; The Universities of Chicago, Illinois (UIC) and Hawaii, along with Columbia University in New York. For anyone who does not know, WE approached UIC to have a university component. We formed a partnership, now we are finalists!

Here is part of the Obama Foundation's statement:

“We were amazed by the quality of responses to our Request for Qualifications and we are grateful to every institution that expressed interest in carrying President Obama’s legacy forward,” said Board Chair Martin Nesbitt. “These four potential partners have come the farthest in meeting our criteria and have each demonstrated a strong vision for the future Obama Presidential Library. We look forward to working with each institution to further refine their proposals over the coming months, and to presenting our recommendations to the President and First Lady early next year.”

Let the Gangs win

I think this is a message worth noting. This past weekend, our 14th Annual Block Party was abruptly cancelled due to a shooting that occurred the previous night. The incident involved three "reputable" gang members; in other words, they were the intended targets. The fact that these gang members are proud to make that admission is enough to prosecute them for organized crime and terrorism.

I think this is a message worth noting. This past weekend, our 14th Annual Block Party was abruptly cancelled due to a shooting that occurred the previous night. The incident involved three "reputable" gang members; in other words, they were the intended targets. The fact that these gang members are proud to make that admission is enough to prosecute them for organized crime and terrorism. I have lived in this neighborhood for over 25 years and have never seen a block party cancelled over similar incidents. There are shootings across the city every night. However, my issue is the mentality of our police who ask the peace makers to hide inside because they will arrive after a crime is committed. As far as I can see, the police are enabling the gang activity by allowing them to intimidate us and disregard our right to peace. Has anyone else experienced a similar occurrence?

    I live just on the other end of the block from you, Neighborino23. (In fact, I live in the same building where the gangbanger funeral/wake was held last Thursday).

    I'm new to the neighborhood and to Chicago in general. I'm working on getting my landlord to understand what a problem the residents in 2700 are, and hopefully he will not renew their lease when it expires. Any details you can provide would be helpful. Thanks!

    I can tell you that these individuals openly sell drugs and use minors to prevent long prison sentences. Just last week, I was walking back from Walmart with my kids and saw the same group relaxing on their stoop opening smoking weed at 6 pm. We are always hearing them yelling gang slurs at cars passing. There are several children under the age of ten that they expose to this type of behavior which in my opinion is child neglect/abuse.

    If your landlord is unaware that criminal activity is taking place in his building, he should know that the cops are there almost daily now. His tenants are causing his property value to decrease regardless of how much he has to pay the city in taxes. The building was spray painted along the side by his own tenants showing their "territory" which initiated the violence that occurred that weekend the 16 year old was killed. That 16 year old was known by the police to be a proud gang member living in his building.
