Mayoral Election

What has Chuy done for our neighborhood?

  • Ever since the wards were merged Lana Lane hasn't done much for us either as our alderman. We're at the end of south Chicago were the last to get any type of city services the current mayor hasn't done much for us either. What's the difference. For instance Durgin Parks...

    Ever since the wards were merged Lana Lane hasn't done much for us either as our alderman. We're at the end of south Chicago were the last to get any type of city services the current mayor hasn't done much for us either. What's the difference. For instance Durgin Parks new played Lot looks awful I've seen better swing sets in the clearing branch then in ours. In the 28 years I've lived in this neighborhood even the Scottsdale park trees protruding over the swing set just got cut, the branches used to hang so low for so many years. Murphy and Especially Olivo were great Alderman, representives. That why voting is important, a change of CHOICE. Same goes for the alderman position. Remember to VOTE

Residential Parking

What is the point of Residential Parking if the schools do not respect it? Yes, I understand that people have to pick up their kids BUT the school worker that was directing the cars informed me that they are NOT to park they are supposed to follow his direction. Obviously they do not and yes people park early and wait. It is not an in and out thing, either way they are not supposed to do that. Some "parents" even get attitudes when asked to move. Why continue to pay for a residential parking pass if no one follows it?

  • It seems that some of the parents who post these comments should actually be required to sit in class with their child or childrens.

  • Ms. Kak I wish I could say it was because of the snow, ice or cold but sadly it is not.

Homeless Center on Southside of Chicago

Hello everyone. My name is DeLancy. I would like to know everyone thoughts on having a Homeless Center on Southside of Chicago? I would like the community input on this issue.

  • Jeff Janulis CAPS Rep

    Because it is better to invest the limited resources available in our youth, instead of people that have frittered their lives away. I agree with Ms. Yolanda.

    And what a prick to pick on a typo mr. grammar-check....

  • No, I was (and am) being quite sincere in erring on the side of caution to make sure that I was understanding Yolando O's post. Hence my heartfelt apology in advance, if I got it wrong.

    Sometimes you're sure you're right about something and it turns out not to be the case. I was fairly certain it was just a typo (and we all make 'em!!) but just in case I was wrong (which has happened on occasion), I wanted to avoid offending her.
    I hope that she realizes that, if not in my last post, then by what I have added here.

IT'S TIME FOR A CHANGE. HEALING BEGINS WITH US.

When i first discovered EveryBlock.com this summer, I was so excited to have a day to day community news resource at my finger tip. However as I monitored the posts. I found that someone was attacking and saying negative things, when someone posted to this sight. I have found this to be the case also with the 18th ward connection. In my search for media/information source for The 18th Ward, I requested to place an advertisement in The Neighbor ( a monthly newspaper that is suppose to be unbiased and for every resident of our neighborhood) I was told that I could not run my ad in my paper. ( fyi - I am a candidate for alderman and so is the publisher of this paper)

I think EveryBlock as well as The 18th Ward Connection, can be a great resource tool for everyone. Our constitutional Amendment - FREEDOM OF PRESS - does not mean for we as humans, should post negative comments and attack each other. It is time for our community to come together and heal. I am calling for every resident to respect one another. And it starts with those who desire to be in leadership. It is ok to have different choices, ideas, preferences. It is not o.k. to be a part of hurting others. Let's make everyone feel welcome to EveryBlock and see this media source grow.

    Sounds like you are attacking the Chuks campaign with subtle verbiage. Have you placed an advertisement in the Neighbor newspaper before you decided to run for alderman ?? Or did you decide to do it NOW during election time only??

    Sounds like you are attacking the Chuks campaign with subtle verbiage. Have you placed an advertisement in the Neighbor newspaper before you decided to run for alderman ?? Or did you decide to do it NOW during election time only??
    There is this thing called 'conflict of interest'. I'm sure you would not run an ad in your paper; blog; social media of an opponent during campaigning.
    So let's call this what it is : you posted that it's time for change yet your post is an attack. I applaud your subtlety and choice of words but it doesn't change what you meant between the lines.
    This is what's wrong with society. You don't have to help anyone but don't hurt them either.

    Ads Vs Articles!
    We at the Neighbor value our community and fellow neighbors. we offer a community newspaper monthly and for free to our fellow neighbors. The paper is free, but the ad space does cost, like most other newspapers. The paper is primarily paid for from our publisher's pocket, and paid ad space, there is no guarantee or right to free commercial ad space. As long as an ad fits our criteria (not offensive or attacking) and paid for, we have not and will not deny anyone! Ads range from business card size to full page color, to 12 page inserts. All requests for ad should be sent to paper, which is forwarded to the advertising director. Our Publisher running for alderman has no barring on our mission and procedures. Actually, the main difference has been less direct involvement.
    Separate from ads, we allow open article submissions. Priority is given to our neighbors and those that service our neighbors in our community. if you have a genuine story that is not offensive or overly commercial in nature and you want it published, SEND THEM! www.TheNeighbor60652.com
