Gotta love the part, "Must have a Chicago RAP sheet to receive assistance"

Adios Maureen.

  • Yeah! We should just let people who need legal help stay confused and hopeless! Everyone knows the American Justice System is best when those with the means (read: $$$) to defend themselves works best!

  • Joseph, I don't really understand your criticism. Ms. Sullivan is just doing a good civic deed by pointing out (to those who can't afford legal representation) a way to take advantage of a program already being offered.

    Joseph, I don't really understand your criticism. Ms. Sullivan is just doing a good civic deed by pointing out (to those who can't afford legal representation) a way to take advantage of a program already being offered. She is neither promoting welfare nor is she helping criminals; in fact it clearly states that there will be no help for criminal cases. By making the public aware of a program like this it just shows her commitment to help people all along the economic spectrum and not just to those willing to cut a campaign check. I certainly haven't seen any efforts like this from any of the other candidates. Helping constituents take advantage of existing resources is a good quality in a candidate and something I would hope any Alderman would do.

What happened to the Bridgeport Vet?

I have been calling the bridgeport vet (Wayne, now that he is alone since Larry passed away) for over a week and there is a message that says the clinic is temporarily closed. Does anyone know why? And also does anyone know if Wayne is going to open again soon? I haven't been there in awhile since my dog and then one of my cats passed on. So I am out of the loop

Ten Thousand Ripples Art & Peace Workshop

The Chicago Park District and Changing Worlds will present Symbols of Culture, Symbols of Peace, an Art and Peace Workshop, Saturday, October 25th, 10:00 a.m.-12:00 noon, at McGuane Park, 2901 S. Poplar. Join neighbors and friends for a morning of art and peace making activities. Learn about the Ten Thousand Ripples Buddha sculptures in Palmisano Park and work with award-winning artist, Indira Johnson, to create your own symbol of peace. This event is free and open to residents of all ages. The Ten Thousand Ripples exhibit was installed at Palmisano Park in August where it will remain until next summer.

  • rene One of Morty's people

    It just occurred to me... those sculptures will either stop the sledding this winter or make it more dangerous. This is very interesting. I am conflicted about the sledding at Palmisano. It looks so dangerous, what with the bottom of the hill leading to a wall. On the other hand, as a kid I loved sledding so much, and would hate to deprive any child of that experience.

  • R.

    I've sled down it many times and let me say that the fun far outweighs the danger. I haven't seen anyone get injured in the times I've been there, though the sledder has to mind any pedestrians passing by. Sad news if the sculptures interfere this winter, but I suspect folks will just spend more time sledding down the other side.

  • rene One of Morty's people

    I grew up in west Michigan where we had dunes and some of the dunes even had rope lifts. So my idea of sledding is possibly a little safer in some ways, and much more dangerous in others!

Falcon

Saw a falcon catch a sparrow on our deck today. Hadn't seen one so close before.

  • robin in WRP misanthrope

    We have nesting cardinals and mourning doves in our yard. We occasionally see red-tailed hawks. Mr. Woodpecker (red comb, and all) shows up for a few weeks every spring.

  • jim m bridgeport resident 14 years

    We have a thistle feeder. Fewer goldfinches have showed up this year than last. Mourning doves eat what falls to the ground. Haven't seen the falcons (I think what we saw were actually kestrels) in the tree across the alley since spring.

Maureen Sullivan's Palmisano Park Council Wins Award

Congratulations to Maureen, Rob and Dan on winning the annual "Volunteers in the Parks" award from Friends of the Parks.

http://www.dnainfo.com/chicago/20141013/bridgeport/palmisano-park-advisory-council-wins-city-award

I don't serve on the park advisory council but have had the privilege of volunteering for the Bridgeport Clean and Green and Bridgeport Air and Water Show over the last few years. These events have given me the opportunity to work closely with Maureen Sullivan and learn from her the true meaning of community spirit. Her resourcefulness and ability to bring businesses, community groups and individuals together for a common purpose is exactly why I want her to be our next alderman.

Rob and Dan are both pretty great, too :) Congratulations to all!

  • Thanks Rene!
    The PAC has great ideas for the park. And, while I know that Rob & I are proud to be recognized by Friends of The Park, Maureen is the real driving force of the council. She has put in a lot of her very-limited free time to make events at Palmisano great. She doesn't give up. Having worked with her on numerous projects over the last few years I think Maureen will make a good Alderman.
