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?

  • Merc, it seems as if you have divulged more info than you should have. In this day and age you should know better.

  • For Comcast users a simple way to block unwanted calls is to dial *60 and follow the options. It is easier and faster than going to the web site.

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.

New charter school for at risk youths

I recently learned that Emmanuel Christian Church has entered into an agreement w/ CPS to open an alternative high school at 83 rd & Damen. No community engagement efforts just trying to slip in without notice. Smh!

  • 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...

    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.

    Wow! This is very concerning. I will do just that. Thank you.

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

A-M-A-Z-I-N-G Donuts - D&D Tastee Freez - 8324 S. Kedzie Ave. Chicago, IL

OK, the other day I noticed that the Tastee Freez had re-opened. We loved the Tastee Freez before it closed about 4 years ago. So, of course my son and nephew HAD to get ice cream. We stopped by with a mission - get some cool ice cream treats and head home. What I didn't expect was to get HOOKED on their donuts.

OK, the other day I noticed that the Tastee Freez had re-opened. We loved the Tastee Freez before it closed about 4 years ago. So, of course my son and nephew HAD to get ice cream. We stopped by with a mission - get some cool ice cream treats and head home. What I didn't expect was to get HOOKED on their donuts. They were beautiful and I complimented the owner on how delicious the donuts looked. I had told her I will have to try them sometime because when we want to get good donuts we travel all the way to Old Fashioned at 11112 and Michigan.
She explained that her husband trained under the owner of Old Fashioned for several years. The owner of O.F. had giving her husband his blessing to go out and open his own business.
Beautiful story, mouth watering donuts and a new local business to definitely check out and support!

  • I would hope the best for the owners, but, it isn't the owners that will ruin this nice little family stop off. It is the peoples who hang around and start trouble from one side of the streets to the other. Have you ever notice how eerie it feels to walk into the gas station on 82nd Kedzie.

  • My husband & I love the Apple Fritters! I like watching them make the fresh Doughnuts. GOOD LUCK!

    You are all over the place with statements unsupported by a shred of facts.

    "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...

    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.
