Auburn Park

Hello, I'm a reporter for the South Side Weekly, a news magazine that covers arts, culture, and politics on the South Side. I'm currently writing a story about the history of Auburn Park and I'm wondering if anyone has any stories, memories, or experiences about the park. If you spent time there as a child or still swear by it, please get in touch with me before 2/1!

  • Would you consider interest in an upcoming blue ribbon initiative similar to that of Mount Greenwood-Chicago, but here in our area to write about?

    I grew up in Auburn Park. It was a great friendly neighborhood.
    Moved to Mt. Greenwood in 1965.

What Is Going On In The 17Th Ward? Part 1 B continued

Now that the catholic church has admonished Pfleger, Glenda is saying that she works for her failed non-profit, What About The Children (W.A.T.C.H.) who was kicked out of the S.O.S. Children’s Village for failing to provide the proper services required by the grant. Can you say CORRUPTION!

Now that the catholic church has admonished Pfleger, Glenda is saying that she works for her failed non-profit, What About The Children (W.A.T.C.H.) who was kicked out of the S.O.S. Children’s Village for failing to provide the proper services required by the grant. Can you say CORRUPTION! Glenda was using the money to pay herself, her cousins and brothers to provide educational and mentoring services to our youth, but no one had the appropriate training to provide the services that were required by the grant. When the families and village officials began inquiring and asking Glenda to produce the documents, she immediately got the W.A.T.C.H “outta” there.

The question I was told to ask: who is paying Glenda’s salary while she is running? My fly on the wall couldn’t truly say but they think it’s either the individual businesses or combination of Rahm’s cronies, Larry Huggins, Everett Rand, Elzie Higgenbottom and Leon Finney.

Stay Focused! Wait until I share what I am hearing about what the Glenda camp, and Rahms Super-Pac is about to unleash on David Moore. It will be hurtful, but it won’t stop the 17th ward residents from electing one of their very own. It’s mostly lies and half truths tangled together to mislead the voters, and use fear tactics targeting women and seniors not to vote for David. Many worse people with personal problems have been elected and have not served the community in the manner in which David has served.

    This is really sad all the negativity,I am still voting .Dr.King would be sick whom ever is running if it's just for money and fame and not for the good of the people step down.We don't need no more lies yes lies not promises.The young people don't vote the middle age are sick of the mess Black leaders do just to get elected and the seniors vote because they really know the struggle.If you are a thief and money is tempting to you this job is not for you,if you pretend to care about the community just to get a salary,we have had enough of those,I don't have to name names.I am sick of encouraging my children to vote and scandals are all we see.Our communities are in distress because when we elect those we trust,they slap us in the face and go to jail and come back then want us to give them another chance.If you believe that there is a God step down before you walk into the office just to further your private agendas,money for your family,side hustles whatever you planning on doing that has nothing to do with taking care of a community that has seen enough negativity,dirty politicians,drugs,crime,too many liquor stores,abandoned houses,ENOUGH SCANDALS IN CHICAGO.You are worse than those who have never voted but love Dr.King and what he stood for ,because you use big words and take up a pet project to look good and when it's over you're gone.When the cameras leave and if you are sincere then help the elected alderman if your heart is really for the people.Don't be a Santa Claus we need all the positive help we can get in Englewood the politicians are worst than the gangs ,the only difference some of you all went to College and that mean nothing because God gave us all common sense.Tired of CROOKED LIEITITIANS .

    One poster talks about scandals on one hand, but supports a candidate that is crazy and morally depraved, while at the same time not providing any evidence that the current alderman has done anything corrupt and is anything other than an upstanding family person and educated far beyond what the current candidates have to offer.
    The post that is sock-puppeted by David/Jazmine ("Janelle"), is ridiculous . David must be off of his medication.

What Is Going On In The 17Th Ward - Part 1 A

What is going on in the 17Th Ward Race?

It is great to have friends in high places. I get to be that fly on the wall that have I always wanted to be.

Word has it that Rahm Emanuel admires David Moore and has great respect for how he has single handedly toppled the 17th Ward Leadership. This includes neutralizing the Great White Hope, Father Pfleger who has been privately admonished by the Archdiocese of Chicago for getting directly...

What is going on in the 17Th Ward Race?

It is great to have friends in high places. I get to be that fly on the wall that have I always wanted to be.

Word has it that Rahm Emanuel admires David Moore and has great respect for how he has single handedly toppled the 17th Ward Leadership. This includes neutralizing the Great White Hope, Father Pfleger who has been privately admonished by the Archdiocese of Chicago for getting directly involved in the 17th ward race, while using their resources and grant money to help finance Glenda Franklin’s campaign office among other countless things.

Miss Glenda, who is directly tied to the failures of the Alderman’s office, has had to change courses about the work that she does. When Glenda abruptly left that Alderman’s office last spring to begin her run for office, Father Pfleger gave her a high paying job at the taxpayer funded resource center so that she could continue to have an income while campaigning on the centers time instead of doing any work. We used to call that Ghost Pay-rolling back in the day.

    Ghost payrolling ? Isn't that what you are doing on the payroll of Larry Rogers while campaigning ?

    Ghost payrolling ? Isn't that what you are doing on the payroll of Larry Rogers while campaigning ?

    Upon further reading of this disjointed, rambling, psychotic drivel, it sounds more like something David has written himself, hiding behind the name of a made up woman. Or it could be the trampy Jazmine Mc. C - who was also fired, like David, and now has an axe to grind.

    One can tell from the ignorant catch phrases used throughout the post, and the others, that David will say when he thinks he is among friends (because his org HAS been infiltrated). Words like "back in the day", "stool-pigeion", "great white hope", and other key words that unmask him trying to write and cover his tracks.

    Very transparent "Lil' Bit" - and still have a problem with women it seems.Except the loose woman who allows you to sleep over from time to time over on West 80th street by the train tracks.
    Or the chumps at the Chicago Crusader rag that print whatever you or Del Marie sends them.

    Once the REAL David Moore is exposed, he will go back into hiding in his home, which is not in the ward, by the way, and people will have to bring food to house like what was done during his many bouts of mental instability "back in the day".

4. During David’s job loss and his single bout with depression, and as he has tried to take care of his ailing mother and sisters with children, David’s childhood home went into foreclosure. The Glenda and Rahm team will use his misfortunes to say that he cannot be fiscally responsible in turning our community around. That is some B.S.

4. During David’s job loss and his single bout with depression, and as he has tried to take care of his ailing mother and sisters with children, David’s childhood home went into foreclosure. The Glenda and Rahm team will use his misfortunes to say that he cannot be fiscally responsible in turning our community around. That is some B.S. David has gone through some things that many of us in our community are going through and he is still standing.

That’s the type of person I want to see as my leader, not some weak puppet who has not overcome any challenges on his or her own. I personally know, that after Glenda left the responsibility of raising her children after a failed marriage, and came back to Chicago only to use the relationship of her mother who worked in the 17Th Ward Democratic Organization to get a secretarial Job at CHA; before being moved to work in Latasha Thomas’s office to keep Terry Peterson abreast of what was going on in the office because he felt Latasha was a poor alderman, as Glenda was taking prescription Prozac on a daily basis. Nevertheless, what does these personal shortcomings that we all have has to do with anything. I personally know a lot more about Glenda Franklin and if they continue to personally attack David Moore, I will be more than happy to share them. All I can say is, that some of the Pastors in the ward better talk to their girl and her camp because I will name names.

  • So Davids mother was a tramp, he had no father, he has illegitimate children and nieces/npephews, as well as being illegitimate himself. A family with no morality. Yes, that is exactly what the ward needs.
