  • That's a surprise.
    He is obviously what the 28th Ward wanted, which is evident by the crabs in a barrel mentality, apathy and self centered short sighted mindset demonstrated in the past political morass.

    I am happily out of the ward, and when return when the stakeholders are ready, dedicated and engaged to take the fight back to reclaim their community.

Shots on Gladys and Hamlin

Hey, did anyone hear shots ringing out on Tuesday evening around 8 or 9 on Gladys and Hamlin?

  • Barney Seth Barnhart Thirteen year Garfield Park resident

    I used the time to talk to them about money. I give them credit they want to make a lot of money. The best was when I ran short of cash and paid a couple with change. The five year old who is so smart said, "You don't have any paper money, I'll come back tomorrow when you do." Kids!

    All I did was start cleaning up, the kids came on their own.

Public Trash Cans

Hi. Does anyone know how we can get some trash cans placed around EGP and North Lawndale, or any West Side neighborhoods really? Other neighborhoods have trash cans on the corners of busy intersections. Some are nice and neighborhood centric some are just the plain old can. Those are perfectly serviceable. The amount of trash that just gets thrown around is truly disgusting. It is too much for the few folks that care to go around cleaning everyone else's messes,...

Hi. Does anyone know how we can get some trash cans placed around EGP and North Lawndale, or any West Side neighborhoods really? Other neighborhoods have trash cans on the corners of busy intersections. Some are nice and neighborhood centric some are just the plain old can. Those are perfectly serviceable. The amount of trash that just gets thrown around is truly disgusting. It is too much for the few folks that care to go around cleaning everyone else's messes, not that we don't try. I don't understand the mentality of people that litter. Are they not disgusted by how trashy the neighborhood looks? I figure at least if there are places to put trash then something might start to change.

So I'm going to put in a request with my alderman this week, but that's not always the best solution. Does anyone know of any other ways to reach out, and make this happen?

Also, don't turn this thread into a whine fest about the alderman, government, lazy neighbors, etc. Problems and hurdles can be overcome.

Right to thrive zone!! Great Idea

Emanuel,is touting a right to thrive zone. He intends to develop the underserved neighborhoods in Chicago and bring back jobs. It will help businesses return to these blighted areas by giving special tax breaks or credits. It's' about time the Democrats make some serious efforts to save Chicago neighborhood that are wastelands.

There have been lots of promises in the past. Let's hope this is the real deal.

Nice and Clean

So nice to see everyone out cleaning up on my block. Our block looks great>

    If your alley is a mess, send kyle.smith@cityofchicago.org an email and ask that the regular garbage guys rake the entire alley. Ask that the regular crew lift the lids of blue carts and empty them if they have regular garbage in them,
    instead of waiting for the blue crews to tag with a yellow sticker...and wair for the next wk (or) never pick up of the blue cart full of regular garbage.

    A reminder email early the day of garbage pickup or the day before will let him know the job is not complete.

    He can get your alley cleaner...so you don't do the job for the guy who is paid to do.the job. U can plant some stuff, have a bbq w/ neighbors...and enjoy your block.

    The Thanks to neighbors is a nice jesture. Sounds like things have improved on your block Seth. You are a good leader/catalist for positive channge.

    Keep holding city workers accountable here until they do as good a job as Depaul and Lincoln Park get!

  • Barney Seth Barnhart Thirteen year Garfield Park resident

    This has nothing to do with an alley. Or, getting city services. It is about my block and my appreciation for neighbors cleaning up.

  • SIR SEL OF NORTH LAWNDALE AND BEYOND I'm a community filth and fear fighter

    Brother Barney, this is about an alley (all alleys) and city services, as it relates to the way your block looking. I speaks to the truth that some people really care about their environment and the quality of life they enjoy.
    Your block is the example that my mission and purpose of cleaning up represents. Thanks for sharing your picture and any other photos that you are comfortable sending.

Rahm being bankrolled by Republican millionaires

Conservative Republican Ken Griffin donated $1 million to Rahm Emmanuel's campaign. This is who he is beholden too, not the residents of East Garfield Park, unless you donated the same amount.

  • Bger East Village neighbor

    He also gets donations from Democrats. There are Republicans in this city and they know the Democrats always win. Who the heck are they going to support? They'll choose the one they think best represents their views. Republicans are generally--with the exception of George Bush ;-) -- fiscal conservatives. Between Garcia and Emanuel the choice for a fiscal conservative is obvious. I'm sure Republicans gave to the Daley's and Jane Byrne and on and on.
