  • Last night a car crashed on the side of our house into a tree on 77th Street. Saw a plain clothes detective chasing someone down the street, then a massive amount of squad cars and street blockings and a helicopter for about an hour. Later all I heard down 77th Street were ambulances, sirens, the helicopter was hovering by then and the squad cars began to gradually disperse. Anybody know why all this occurred Saturday night?

  • Warm weather brings out the urban predators.

    Dear Dr. Byrd Bennett,
    The Sutherland community would very much appreciate your help in clearing up some confusion over our official test scores. Incumbent Bulldog LSC members claim that the official test scores Sutherland received from CPS, which show a bump in student achievement that helped our school's ranking increase from level 2 to level 1 in the past year, are unreliable and should be disregarded.
    They claim that instead we should look at State scores, which they say show a drop in performance. This supposed decline in our students' performance is one of the reasons they cite to support their decision to not renew principal Gannon's contract.
    When I look at our official school data from the link below, I see that our children's performance is strong and improving. There has been much confusion and debate over how to read these scores, especially since incumbent candidates are citing our school's decline in performance as a campaign issue.
    Could you please look at this data and help to clear up confusion? Does Sutherland's official state data show that the performance of Sutherland students is in decline, or is our students' performance strong and improving?
    We would appreciate a prompt response to this question as the LSC election is Monday.
    Thank you very much for your help,

    I both loved your video and was greatly saddened by your video. I grew up and played in a lot of those areas that you photographed. I attended Vanderpoel grammer school on 95th st., I attended Morgan Park High School and I roamed those areas around Ashland ave between 95th to 111th. The only thing I can state is Times Change, Areas Change and our world has changed.
    As for the empty store fronts, lets look at the big box stores to blame. We all know that the smaller stores can not compete pricewise with Target, Walmart etc. and even if you love your community, most shopping trips will be to wear you can save some money.
    Beverly is still a beautiful community, but it's had to Change with the times.

  • Scott, thank you for watching and your comments. I agree. Times change and we must change with them, hopefully for the better. Lincoln Park is a perfect example of a neighborhood changing for the better and bringing an influx of money. Believe or not we have the same income per...

    Scott, thank you for watching and your comments. I agree. Times change and we must change with them, hopefully for the better. Lincoln Park is a perfect example of a neighborhood changing for the better and bringing an influx of money. Believe or not we have the same income per capita as them. I have had my own business for my entire life and own a mom and pop store. I had to change with the times as well. Unfortunately, because of typical Chicago politics the TIF money that should be dispersed for "seeding" to numerous businesses in the community has gone to "Good Buddy Deals" instead. What you are seeing is the result of corruption over numerous years and still continues under the current local leadership. Very Sad for the Community.

Nutrition

I do nutrition and lifestyle counseling in the surrounding area of Beverly, I generally meet clients in their home. Do to an increase in clientele I was looking for "Desk time" or office space to rent on a daily basis, maybe once or twice a week at this point. Does anyone have any ideas? I've check Craigslist and Desk time directories and cannot find much.

  • Momofoku

    Real Estate companies, lawyers and insurance companies many times have an extra desk in their offices they might rent out.

  • Momofoku

    Tax preparation places too.

  • McVicker's View Gladstone Park

    Perhaps one of the churches in the area would have a space suitable for your needs. You might also consider renting a commercial space you could share with another entrepeneur.
