Senior Citizen Issues:

We have a large number of seniors (including yours truly) in the area around Pasteur Park. But we don't have a decent park field house. Seniors need a place to exercise, especially in the winter months. A decent running track around the park would also be great for the aging limbs.

FBI and police with guns on Karlov and 58th

Does anyone know what happened? I was driving to westlawn grocery store, and saw police speeding through the little streets, then up and down the alley. They were looking in people's yards and then a bunch got off and walked up and down the block carrying machine guns...

  • This is likely what you witnessed on Aug.7th, WestLawn Girl (I saw this newsstory a day or so later, in the Chicago Sun-times: and here is an online link to the program, wherein the Chicago Police, the FBI, and County police are teaming up to patrol the streets in some of the most high-crime areas of our city. Apparently, WestLawn counts as that!

  • 58th and Karlov is not part of West Lawn, it is West Elsdon.

    The area between 55th and 59th from Pulaski to Cicero is still a nice place to live. West Elsdon is from Central Park (east) to Cicero (west), 59th (north) to 52nd/51st Street (south).

    If something was going on at 58th a Karlov, it probably was a violation of a court appearance. If you check out crimes statistics, West Elsdon's highest issues are robbery and Burglary.

change in ward 13

Who else think that we need a change from the status quo. sound off here and let your voice be heard.

  • Do you have specifics Carlos or are you just looking for change for change sake?

  • You need change to progress. If there is no change things become stagnant. Plus its time that we take our community back and away from the politician own special interest.

  • So in other words change just for change sake.

Alderman for the 13th ward in the upcoming election

I've worked for the City of Chicago for 15 years, as a watchman, laborer, and the last 5 years as a ward coordinator under the Department of Street and Sanitation.  As a ward coordinator I was on the frontlines and had a chance to work closely with the Ward's Alderman. I had an Opportunity to be at the Alderman's side and assist in the day to day operation of a Chicago City Ward. I've been active in politics for the last 30 years from the grassroots up and am no stranger to Chicago politics.

I'm currently seeking to run for the seat of Alderman of the 13 Ward. I've lived there with my wife Kathy and 4 sons for 13 years. I'm currently a volunteer patient advocate at the University of Illinois Medical Campus. My goals for the 13th ward includes preventing violence in our community, providing vital services, and cleaning up our neighborhood, to bring a real change to the City of Chicago, and by offering my experience to better serve our community.

    Morally corrupt! come on. In 2011, one of the candidates against Quinn didn't file the correct paper work, so he was removed from the ballot by the Election board and the other candidate didn't have enough signatures to get on the ballot. Also, I believe they signed the same petition as the Alderman's and perjured oneself. And was removed by the Chicago Board of Elections which is independent of Mike Madigan and anyone you think is conspiring to not have somebody on the ballot.

    Lifelong, I think you need to take a course in politics. Politics 101.

    If you decide to run for office you have to follow the rules. Plain and simple.

    Your pathetic and a cry baby.

Madigan - Quinn Service Office doing great!

The Madigan - Quinn Service Office should be commended for the great work they do for our community!

  • I see the Madigoons attacking residents again.laughable how they are trying to make a rubberstamper look good.

    I'm just looking for facts, not just " they are the best" and he "knows his people".
    Still don't know what that's supposed to mean. But I'm sure you have more than enough police at 67 & Kolin, there are no illegal rental conversion units there, your taxes are the...

    I'm just looking for facts, not just " they are the best" and he "knows his people".
    Still don't know what that's supposed to mean. But I'm sure you have more than enough police at 67 & Kolin, there are no illegal rental conversion units there, your taxes are the lowest in the city - it all just couldn't be better. So go ahead and promote your guy.
    Again, if the service office responds to your requests, isn't that what they are supposed to do?
    I think we are both expressing ourselves, don't get offended if I just do not agree with you.

Computer Fraud

I've been receiving calls from 953-267-6390 pretending to be from Windows Operating System. They are very hard to understand but the caller wants me to go to my computer and they will show me what is wrong with me computer. They call constantly and a couple years ago they claimed to be with Microsoft. Has anybody else received this call?

  • Duke, what warrants "to much information"?

  • PBB Homeowner

    Reminding us all. NEVER Important numbers. SSI, Credit Cards, Bank card, passwords or permission to take over your computer. If they can't WAIT for you to get a second opinion...you don't want them.

    I don't think you gave out too much information. Giving out information is like opening or locking your front door. If someone wants in. They are going to get in.
    Mostly you lock the door to keep the casual goofs from messing with your world.
    Of course those goofs can do a lot of damage if they use a sledgehammer on your door.....or on your Visa card.

    I would not tell them that I have a 1,500.00 Apple computer instead of a regular 500.00 computer but....they don't care what kind of computer we have....they want our Visa number....then they can buy many computers. Thanks neighbors! Pat B.

Former Aldermanic Candidate for Chicago’s 23rd Ward, Anna Corral, endorses and joins Martin Arteaga’s for 23rd Ward Alderman campaign.

Corral, a health professional and community activists in the south west side of Chicago, had previously launched her campaign for Alderman in the 23rd ward. After several conversations and meetings with the Arteaga Campaign, Corral decided to “join forces” and work together to bring the much needed change in the 23rd ward.
“I found myself asking people to support my campaign or Martins. It was clear Martin had an organized campaign team and support from all over Chicago. Joining forces to work together for the 23rd ward and bring the change we need from the current administration made sense.” Said Corral.

Corral will join the Arteaga campaign as Community Outreach Director. “Having Anna’s endorsement and join our team is an honor. She cares a lot about the people in the 23rd Ward and like my self is a concerned parent and citizen who is tired of seeing the communities of the 23rd Ward being neglected.”

The 23rd Ward includes Midway International Airport and parts of Garfield Ridge, Clearing, Archer Heights and West Elsdon. But in the 2015 election, the ward also will spread south and east to take in parts of West Lawn, Chicago Lawn and other neighborhoods. The reconfigured 23rd Ward will see its Hispanic population jump from about 47 percent to around 67 percent.

  • I agree and thank you for posting. Look forward to meeting you and everyone else someday.

    I am known at the 13th Ward Office, 813-833 Beat Meetings, Archer Heights and West Elsdon Civic Association, and I am acquainted with the 13th Ward Alderman.

    Before you ask, yes I have met with Martin Arteaga in person. I did see him at the National Night Out at West Lawn Park last Tuesday, along with everyone else, mentioned above. I did a quick mingle, because I was a member of the crew volunteering.

    That's what I expect of a politician, to get out there to be seen, known and assist.

    No, I'm not running for office, my marketing and research skills keep me busy enough.
