The fight is not over, It has just begun.

The was a rally protesting the closing of Simeon's Auto and electrical shops. This can not take place. The buck stops at the mayors' feet and Ald. Brookins is again asleep at the switch. If we lose these shops the mayor and alderman will pay at the polls.

    When are you folks going to connect the murder and mayhem directly to decades of political corruption and patronage politics, where the black community was treated as second class citizens and systematically disenfranchised?

    I don't much care for these T Coates articles in the Atlantic about Chicago,or race relations.

    Coates simply writes off Chicago as a complete failure, can't find a single positive thing to say about our city. Yes, we have many very rough neighborhoods and lots of heartbreak,but it's a big city and our city is doing better than many other cities.

Greencorps Youth Receive Introduction to Yoga

Greencorps Youth at Team Englewood learned that yoga is not only good for your body, it's great for your mind!  Deep breathing techniques were stressed during Thursday's yoga session with Tameka Lawson from iGrow Chicago.  Students learned that while one cannot control the body's immediate physical reaction to stressful situations, focusing on deep breathing can help control the emotional response.  The session, while brief, was very informative and the response was overwhelmingly positive.   Thanks, Tameka!!

New charter school for at risk youths

    You and your neighbors need to DEMAND CPS send out the head of alternative schools and explain what is happening. Alternative schools are not all the same and you need to know what kind of school is coming. We had Richard Milburn for 1.5 years and had trouble as it is a school for youth who are expelled from CPS and CPS approved alternative schools. It is a school that had to have armed security guards. Once we got on CPS and the archdiocese of Chicago they moved, Many of the churches that once had schools are looking for ways to generate revenue from the spaces since the school closed.

Protests to keep Simeon Career Academy auto and electrical shops open

There will be a rally Monday 6:00pm at Simeon Career Academy to protest the closings of the auto and electrical shops. I will also have petitions there to have signed and delivered to Ald. Brookins to demand that he prevent the closings. With the state of black young unemployment in this city we can not let this happen

The Amazing Race

Friday, July 11 proved to be a day of fun and friendship for students in the Greencorps Youth program.  The morning session, led by mentors Charles and Bettie, went on a scavenger hunt in and around the school.  Faced with tasks such as getting a staff member to do the "D Low Shuffle" (and filming it!), recreating a scene from the movie "Titanic" and taking a selfie in front of the Eiffel Tower, some early hesitation quickly made way for excitement and an urgency to get the race going.  Six teams of two took off for an hour with strict instructions to complete all ten tasks on school grounds.  Jonnas and Mary were the winners, ten minutes ahead of the next group.  After reconvening, students shared their videos and pictures.  With the goal of creating unity, teamwork and making new friends, as well as thinking creatively and generally "outside the box", the activity was a clear success and will be repeated before the program ends on August 8.

    "Close the boarders and stop paying for those that are not citizens. No other country in the world does that." MANY countries do that !!
    Then u say
    "I also think neighborhoods need to be mixed. No majority of one over the other so people are forced to get along..." HOW do you enforce that ??
    Then you say
    "But most of all everyone needs to stop blaming one over the other and forget about the past and fix the future. Even in your own personal relationship you have to realize bringing up the past just angers some and hurts others..." So dont bring up peoples past ? Dont dissect, understand and avoid repeating the past ? Because you might make someone upset ????

    I'm done, this is ridiculous

    Good I am glad you are done because you just want to blame everyone else for your problems so continue on, it seems to be working really great for you. I know you can't enforce any of that I was saying it would be a nice thing if that could happen. You choose to make a fight so go on fight with everyone, I am sure that will solve all of your problems. I know you learn from history so I try in my own life not to repeat any of the wrongs I have done and to do it better each and every time. Hate is what you seem to want to hang on to, not forgiveness. I am NOT saying forget, I am saying FORGIVE and move on and make life better for everyone around you. That is my goal figure out what is yours.

love not war

Can we all get alone im tired of the police riding my Hood, we need protection we don't need cops looking for more teens to kill.

  • You must be joking. You are a complete idiot if you are blaming the police for the lack of parenting that goes on in your community. We need more police in your awful neighborhood because you cannot control your own people. The Governor agrees and now the Illinois State Police will be patrolling the streets. Before you blame the police, get your head out of your a** and wake up stupid.

    I don't know what "can we all get alone" wants, or needs. Protection? How? So, not plainclothes police - you just don't want police at all??? And they are the ones killing teens? OK, lets ignore the gangbangers & mentally disturbed & social misfits cause we know how well they all get along. There are a lot more things I'm tired of in my hood and yours, but the police aren't near the top of the list. These problem children start off in someone's home for better or worse & they wind up on the street where they can't think straight and don't shoot straight.

  • Candace Collins Secretary, Park Manor Neighbors Community Council

    Thank you I love Doran Patrick comment. Police are not lkilling your kids, kids are killing each other. It's the uneducated adults that complaining, parents need to raise their kids!!!! Stop blaming the police! You ought to be glad police are patrolling your neigjborhoiod! We all know why some neighborhoods are bad.!!! Instead of complaining about your neighborhood, YOU need to do something! GET INVOLVE!!!!
