Fioretti did you think you'd win?

Fioretti, Don't you know when to drop out. Rahm 46% of vote so far. Fioretti 7%. 46 plus 7 equals 53% could have been to Rahm. Now more months to waste on campaign adds. Rahm your English negative campaign on Chuy let Non English speaking people see Chuys face all over the place and didn't have a clue if it was good or bad and Chuy learn how to say the word afford. Both F's should be heard.

  • @Merc- Fioretti's voters despise Emanuel. They would vote for Garcia, Wilson, or Walls before they'd cast a ballot for Emanuel.

    If you think the majority of Chuy's voters don't speak English you are as clueless as your buddy Emanuel.

This site is worthless. There aren't any community alerts, community classes, nor any information PERIOD!
Compare to back of the yards SSA#10 (www.bync.org)
They offer youth, adult and senior classes, notary services for the residents, ESL classes, computer lab.
TIME TO VOTE LONA LANE OUT!

What's happening with can openers?

Electric and handheld can openers are not opening cans without flip tops. Neither my husband or I are having much success. Anybody else having this problem, explain your situation. If you're having no problems with this, let me know what you are using to open cans and perhaps include the brand name. What gives???? I'm baffled!

  • I'm disabled and that's just a little thing in life that annoys me. My other problems can't be fixed here.

  • I purchased the Kuhn Rikon via QVC and just used it. I was hardly turning and I didn't even hear a puncture, I didn't think it was working because there was nothing to it. I decided to check it and it worked. I barely grabbed the edge with the little lifter and the lid came right off. Thank you everybody for your ideas and I'm so glad I asked. I'm no longer frustrated when opening cans.

18TH WARD; Lane and Curtis DO NOT deserve your Vote!

Lona and her #2 Derrick should not get your vote for 18th Ward Alderman. Our neighbors in Chicago Lawn explain a good reason why! Please review the link below.

http://www.myfoxchicago.com/story/28029248/neighbors-angry-over-illegal-dump-site-in-chicago-lawn

  • **@tee80 We need to rally together and elect a new Alderman. I highly recommend you research Michael A. Davis and punch #53 on your voting day. He is a proud product of our 18th Ward. Also follow my posts/events there is a Final Debate if you care to attend.

  • Ms. KAK Concerned Citizen

    Early voting has started. Remember Lane seems to be in Rahm pocket. She wanted a charter school rather than help the schools already in the ward. Please go vote...don't let the weather stop you. Car pool. Bring a senior or a friend. Your vote counts in this election.

Shooting 84th Kedzie

Why was this story pulled from tv, papers, social media??
Does anyone know what the motive of the shooting was - gangs, domestic?
This is the same area of the murder in May 2014 of a 17yr old.

This area is getting worse.

Please state your position on this and why?

Isn't it time for new representation?

I hope everyone plans to vote for an 18th ward aldermanic candidate. We have a lot of stores closing, businesses leaving. We are going to need someone with the means and staff to pull in some business. Property values will suffer if it continues.

  • I haven't even seen Lona campaigning. I she that arrogant that she feels she's the going to be the next winner. Term Limits, people, term limits

  • Right on Doc, I suggest you support Mike Davis for our 18th Ward.
