    Installing an overhead sewer is definitely an essential basement flood control measure to take to preserve one's property and peace of mind, but other measures may often also be required.

    Older houses in the Chicago area typically lack adequate flood control systems. Twenty years of experience with our pre-WWII house have convinced me that there is no single surefire way to prevent water from getting into a basement (except by buying a house that doesn't have one:)

    Over the years, in our quest for a dry basement, we have installed an overhead sewer system, ejector pump, backup sump pump, standby generator, and an interior French drain system, painted the basement walls with a water sealant, rebuilt a chimney, disconnected downspouts from the sewer line and poured concrete to block up a drain in the basement floor.

    We believe all the measures that we have taken have helped to keep our basement reasonably dry, but I wouldn't be willing to bet there will never be any more water on the basement floor. If too much of it falls from the sky in too short a period of time, it will somehow find a way in.

Gas Main Problems in East Beverly

Isn't it time to find out why the water dept/sub contractors are hitting gas mains? There is enough paint all over marking clearly where the line are. There have been several gas leaks that neighbors have called on and they come right out to fix it. It seems as if no one is paying attention to the fact that this is NOT People Gas that is creating the problem but rather the water department or its subs contractors. I wonder now how many leaks were the fault of the gas company or has it been the sub contractors all along.

  • When looking at this site, at the bottom it has digger members and each utility is listed so I am assuming that if something is being checked it is each agency that is doing it. I do believe when they were marking our street, the Gas Company marked the sites...

    When looking at this site, at the bottom it has digger members and each utility is listed so I am assuming that if something is being checked it is each agency that is doing it. I do believe when they were marking our street, the Gas Company marked the sites of the gas. We were out there for a while with them and they seemed to be very careful(by communicating with each other and the measuring and going down the sewer covers in the street). I have heard the water department is contracted out and they were the ones that hit the line.

CN100 Game of the Week preview: Catholic League Championship - Brother Rice vs. Loyola Academy

CHICAGO – The one advantage enjoyed by teams in the Chicago Catholic League and the Chicago Public League is that if their season in the IHSA playoffs ends, it doesn’t necessarily spell the end of their seasons.
With the Prep Bowl, a Chicago tradition for decades looming around Thanksgiving, seasons are extended for the lucky few. Brother Rice and Loyola find themselves in that position Friday at 7 p.m. in the Chicago Catholic League Championship. The game will be broadcast by CN100 at Noon and 4 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 22, and 7 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 24. You can also find the game throughout Chicagoland with Xfinity On Demand.
The winner will face either Curie or Hubbard in the Prep Bowl next week.
Brother Rice (7-4) recovered from a 24-21 loss to defending Class 8A state champion Naperville Central in the first round of the IHSA playoffs with a 41-0 win over DePaul Prep to advance to this game. The Crusaders beat Loyola 16-13 in the first meeting.
Senior QB Alex Alarcon is a two-way threat offensively, passing for 2,294 yards, 18 TDs and 10 INTs. He’s also rushed for 651 yards and nine scores. His top target in the pass game is sophomore Ricky Smalling (64 catches, 880 yards, 9 TD).
Loyola (9-3) also drew a tough IHSA playoff route, falling to the state’s top team, Stevenson 24-21 in the second round. A second win over St. Rita 31-3 put the Ramblers in the Catholic League title game.
Passing duties have been split three ways, but senior DJ Melsheimer is expected to start Friday. He’ll be looking for seniors Owen Buscaglia (56 catches, 789 yards, 11 TD) and Spencer Cecola (37 catches, 469 yards, 6 TD).
The backbone of the Ramblers’ offense comes on the ground. Junior Dara Laja leads the way with 923 yards and 5 TDs.

I am curious...what's happening?...new business ventures!

I haven't read anything in the Beverly Review or on EveryBlock about the construction/renovation going on at the old Munro Landscaping location on the northeast corner of 101st and Western.

Also do you know what businesses are going into the new building being constructed in the Evergreen Marketplace Mall at 91st & Western?

When are the leases up for Panera, Chipotle, Chase, and the other businesses located in the strip mall on 95th between Claremont & Bell.

When are the leases up for Panera, Chipotle, Chase, and the other businesses located in the strip mall on 95th between Claremont & Bell.

One more question....I heard two brothers from Beverly own the new pub, Porter & Cullens at 3541 W 99th, (formally A & J Meats in Evergreen Park, 99th & Clifton Pk).
I recall Evergreen Park being opposed to and then suing the RSM regarding the building of a residence for retired religious on 99th St., two of the issues were 1.the building was not being used for education and 2. it would bring traffic congestion to a quiet residental area. Is this the same village that issued a liquor license to a location down the block from three schools?....and is allowing the EP grammar school to agree that their parking lot can be used by the patrons of the pub. Is any or all of this true?

  • Cindy Many year resident of Mt. Greenwood

    Too bad about another pay day loan business. Zandra thanks for your intention to contact the alderman about notifications of new business proposals. Surely, a corner location on Western Avenue would be great for many small businesses. The Beverly and Mt. Greenwood neighborhoods need to educate people about how to get financing and how to plan for a new business. With all of the really successful people in these neighborhoods, couldn't the BPA get a group together?

You can also find the game throughout Chicagoland with Xfinity On Demand.
“We played one of the toughest schedules in the state, most likely in the Midwest,” Brother Rice coach Brian Badke said.
Brother Rice (6-3) was co-champion in the rugged Chicago Catholic Blue, with losses to Providence in Week 8 and to two teams outside of Illinois.
“Their players will be battle tested from the tough schedule they play,” Central coach Mike Stine said.
Central's seven-game win streak was snapped by a desperate Wheaton Warrenville South team last week.
Central rode senior running back Kevin Clifford, who had 1,243 yards and nine touchdowns rushing. Junior quarterback Conor Joyce passed for 879 yards and two touchdowns, adding four rushing touchdowns.
Brother Rice boasts the Catholic Blue co-Offensive Player of the Year, senior Marcus Jones. He ran for 752 yards and 13 touchdowns, while adding 26 catches for 464 yards and four TDs.
Senior quarterback Alex Alarcon registered a dynamic season, throwing for 1,961 yards and 16 touchdowns. He added 529 yards and seven scores rushing. His top target is sophomore receiver Ricky Smalling (56 catches, 830 yards, nine touchdowns). He also spreads the ball to junior Julian Blain and senior Zach Hayes on the outside.
“I would say they will be the best team we have faced this season,” Stine said.
Junior DB Jordan Boyd leads the team with 65 tackles and three interceptions. Senior defensive lineman has 47 tackles, 12 tackles for loss and three sacks. Senior linebacker Jim Opoka contributed 54 tackles.
“They are physical up front and they have great athletes in the secondary,” Stine said.
