Does anyone know what they are builing at 39th & Rockwell

  • Justin K. McKinley Parker since 2008, south sider since 1998

    They're building a 1:1 scale replica of the Old Bus Barn to honor CTA busing.

    Actually, I hear that a Planet Fitness and maybe some other retail is planned to move in there ...

Eddie Daniel will make one hell of a good Alderman

Eddie Daniels has my vote, I have worked with him and he does listen and has always been there when a problem needed fixing. He knows how to work with people, he listens and does what he can to help – I have personally seen him come out and shove snow when city said their was no one available, came to CAP meeting to hear what residents needed and then worked to solve the problem with a smile on he's face, he is a true go-getter, he truly know the problems of the ward and has fought to improve them more then anyone knows. He has my endorsement and my vote without a doubt.

metal illness

I was watching Fox News last night...
they say that 33%, 1/3rd , of the people being held in cook county jail are mentally ill and need treatment, as opposed to just being locked up.
I also read a few weeks ago that rahm has closed around one half of the mental health facilities citywide, AND he has left alderman George Cardenas in charge of figuring out what the city should do. I would like to know if these numbers are correct. our new governor says it could save millions of dollars, (not to mention peoples lives) by getting these people proper care. does anyone know how the alderman stands on this? and what is he doing ?

  • John W. More equal wealth based on more equal work

    OK, Manny, do you have any data that shows how many patients were denied service with the concentration of mental health clinics?

    I admit that I do not have such data. But I assume that if there were fewer appointments available now than before the closings of some locations, the media would have reported it.

    If you can provide a link to any story or FOIA answer about the number who have been turned away, or proof that some could not get to the remaining locations, please share.

    There is a connection between the increased homeless population in Chicago and Rahm Emanuel’s 2012 decision to consolidate, close, six of the twelve mental health facilities in the city.

    Having to travel across town for mental health services is an unnecessary challenge to an already tenuous relationship. This is to say nothing about the difficulty in having to re-establish the clinical trust needed to help them succeed.

    The mental health clinic that was in the back of the yards, was the only clinic with full time Spanish speaking staff. it was very specific to a community and now its gone.

Good Things Come to Those Who Wait

When I came home from picking my granddaughter up from school I was totally overjoyed to see that the corner where I park was completely plowed out. I have been so over-whelmed by just trying to make sure I can get out with the car in the morning to get her to Holden School and then worrying that I can get a spot when I come home in the early evening. Thanks you Mr. Alderman and the big strong man that drove the bull dozer that got the snow out of the way at 38th and Campbell.

graffiti

I recently moved to an apartment and believe me when I say it was the worst decision I made gang graffiti is a constant target for the building I moved into it scares the heck out of me and my 3yr old I have called 311 so many times...and i have only lived here 2months I feel so uncomfortable living here any advice on what i can do since i cant break my 1 year lease.?????

  • Ric

    Use the city website, but attach a picture. When there's a pic attached it gets taken care of faster. I've done it that way and the blasters are out within 24 hours removing it.

  • good luck calling caps. they are hardly ever available, i dont think they get enough funding, and are stretched very thin, which is a shame, because they seem to be about the only thing functional in our city government. be prepared to call them 15 times before you are able to reach them.

Street plowing

Does it seem like over the last few years the city has severely cut back on salting the streets? Seems to me they have a great deal. Even the expressways!! Also it seems when they do plow, They don't scrape down to the street as well. Daley at least did a better job of it!

  • Rahm sucks, sorry, I said it, I can't help it, that's how I feel . . .

  • Daley made sure the streets were plowed and alleys. Rahm could care less.

i was at the mckinley park rink the other day, and overheard one of the kids, a sophomore, who works there. he wants to drop out of his uno charter school because it is such a bad and abusive environment. not sure which school he attends, but it sounds like a real nightmare. the principle clearly doesn't care about the kids getting an education, and refuses to discipline the roving packs of bullies that go around hitting, kicking, and beating up the other kids. its such a shame that the youth of today don't have access to a decent education. If that poor young man drops out, what does his future hold? listening to him will haunt me for quite some time.

  • connie69 just want to know whats going on

    And what sucks is he will be treated even worse now because you posted where he works so people at the school will be checking out the rink..this post will be seen by hundreds including thugs also someone from his school will see it and go to the rink to see who is the cry baby and then go back to school and spread the news...you have no right putting where he works or what school he attends you could have easily sent a private message to uno.i understand your trying to help but you need to think about the issues he may now face because you said where he goes to school and where he works

  • I'm glad you put this up, people need to see that these schools who are all agaist bullying are the ones who have the most bullies!!! Same thing happens at Namaste Charter School, they are horrible when it comes to disciplining the bullies.. And chances are there is more than one kid who works at the park..

  • Many of the schools, charter or otherwise, do little to protect students or teachers.They do not report assaults and or threats, as colleges too often hide rapes and othe serious crime. Police are not the only ones who kill crime to create the illusion of public safety.

    Parents of this kid ought to file a police report and have the offenders arrested and prosecuted The teachers are bound by law to report incidents, however, they likely do not want knowledge because they will suffer at the hands of the administrators and possibly face retribution if the incident involves gangmembers.

    The kids are being pursuaded that snow is black.

  • John W. More equal wealth based on more equal work

    I just hope that this interest being shown is not simply current owners of property trying to ascertain what they might be able to sell their places for.

  • Guadalupe Garcia LongTime Brighton Park Neighbor

    Good point. Not sure what criteria was used to conclude the interest. Makes me happy to read about something other than violence.

    Fellow Resident: Not sure what the alternates are as I only go (from the south) to 47th Place. I do not think it is as bad as when they had it closed down to the viaduct repairs which had a longer detour. My guess is from the south swing on one of the (west) side streets that run from 48th to 47th and then jump on Archer back to Kedzie and from the north just reverse it, jump on Archer to 47th and then take a side street (like St Louis) to 47th place or 48th and back on to Kedzie. Heck, perhaps you could even exit and enter through a store parking lot?
