Christmas Surprise

Unloading groceries, my wife and I, we heard a loud siren and it was nearby. We ran through the yard and threw open the gate. We had to hurry so we wouldn't be late. What to our wondering eyes did appear, but a giant red truck with SANTA on the rear. The engine was covered with lights front to rear and Carols were blaring, all the neighbors could hear. It brought us all outside on this cold winter night to say Merry Christmas to all and to all a goodnight. Thanks so much to our Chicago Fire Department for this wonderful holiday surprise !!

Alderman Michael Zalewski's intimidation begins

Source: Anna Goral - Facebook

The same day I have placed my political sign on the lawn next to my building it was taken down and I got ticketed by Chicago Department of Streets and Sanitation.
(photo 1 and 2)

I just wonder if Alderman Zalewski got his ticket since his signs have been on city property (57th & Central) since last Monday, and they are still there today.
(photo 2 and 4)

The office of Chicago Department of Street and Sanitations is only 2 blocks away from where Zalewski’s signs are, so they must have seen them…

    Anyone know where I could get a gram of kush? Then we can head over to my HQ and spark up so you all can stop crying like little babies.

Snow Shovelers ???

Is there anyone within the St. Turibius neighborhood interested in clearing snow during the heavy snowfall?

There may be a couple of neighbors interested.

  • Are you looking for adults or kids to remove snow? Sidewalks or garage/alley removal? Removing with shovels or plows?

  • Open to anyone who has a shovel or snowblower and is reliable. One homeowner lives on a corner with a driveway.

    They had experience from two individuals who gave up shoveling.

    Needs snow removed during heavy snow falls.
