Gotta love the part, "Must have a Chicago RAP sheet to receive assistance"

Adios Maureen.

  • A good alderman supports everyone in the community, not just those you (Joe) deem as worthy. Not everyone has access to the same rights and privileges you may have been afforded. People make mistakes and should be granted another chance. Life isn't black and white. It's full of grey areas. The world would be a much more peaceful place if people came from a place of compassion vs judgment.

  • All Joe is saying that people that receive public assistance and/or have been convicted of a crime are not worthy of representation....
    Lord, please give Joe deleo a walk signal whilst giving me a green light, so that I might relieve him of the burden of life on earth.
    Thanks,

What happened to the Bridgeport Vet?

I have been calling the bridgeport vet (Wayne, now that he is alone since Larry passed away) for over a week and there is a message that says the clinic is temporarily closed. Does anyone know why? And also does anyone know if Wayne is going to open again soon? I haven't been there in awhile since my dog and then one of my cats passed on. So I am out of the loop

  • Mar

    I heard that Wayne was sick. I hope he does open again soon.

Decent Gyms in the Area?

Hi neighbors. My husband and I are looking for an affordable and clean gym to join in the Pilsen - South Loop - Chinatown - Bridgeport area (we live at Archer and Canal). I have not heard the best reviews for the place at Canal and Roosevelt, nor for the one west of us at Cermak and Rockwell. This past month, we signed up for a month's membership at the gym in the Chinatown park district building. We're not that impressed though and were wondering if there were other good options in the area. We'd appreciate any suggestions you might have!

  • Miki love the South Loop!

    We love Snap Fitness @ S. Michigan and Roosevelt -- learn more at the website http://www.snapfitness.com/gyms/chicago-il-60605/5595
    reasonable fees (free trial period, so definitely check it out to see if you like it), 24 hour access, which it sounds like you are looking for, owners are terrific people!

  • West loop realist Teacher political operative

    Avoid FFC. I joined a few years ago and it was a macho arrogant steroid poser place. Couldn't even get a place at the pool with all the staff letting their drunk friends in for free. Avoid this place.

Ten Thousand Ripples Art & Peace Workshop

The Chicago Park District and Changing Worlds will present Symbols of Culture, Symbols of Peace, an Art and Peace Workshop, Saturday, October 25th, 10:00 a.m.-12:00 noon, at McGuane Park, 2901 S. Poplar. Join neighbors and friends for a morning of art and peace making activities. Learn about the Ten Thousand Ripples Buddha sculptures in Palmisano Park and work with award-winning artist, Indira Johnson, to create your own symbol of peace. This event is free and open to residents of all ages. The Ten Thousand Ripples exhibit was installed at Palmisano Park in August where it will remain until next summer.

  • rene One of Morty's people

    It just occurred to me... those sculptures will either stop the sledding this winter or make it more dangerous. This is very interesting. I am conflicted about the sledding at Palmisano. It looks so dangerous, what with the bottom of the hill leading to a wall. On the other hand, as a kid I loved sledding so much, and would hate to deprive any child of that experience.

  • R.

    I've sled down it many times and let me say that the fun far outweighs the danger. I haven't seen anyone get injured in the times I've been there, though the sledder has to mind any pedestrians passing by. Sad news if the sculptures interfere this winter, but I suspect folks will just spend more time sledding down the other side.

  • rene One of Morty's people

    I grew up in west Michigan where we had dunes and some of the dunes even had rope lifts. So my idea of sledding is possibly a little safer in some ways, and much more dangerous in others!

Falcon

Saw a falcon catch a sparrow on our deck today. Hadn't seen one so close before.

  • robin in WRP misanthrope

    We have nesting cardinals and mourning doves in our yard. We occasionally see red-tailed hawks. Mr. Woodpecker (red comb, and all) shows up for a few weeks every spring.

  • jim m bridgeport resident 14 years

    We have a thistle feeder. Fewer goldfinches have showed up this year than last. Mourning doves eat what falls to the ground. Haven't seen the falcons (I think what we saw were actually kestrels) in the tree across the alley since spring.

Maureen Sullivan's Palmisano Park Council Wins Award

Congratulations to Maureen, Rob and Dan on winning the annual "Volunteers in the Parks" award from Friends of the Parks.

http://www.dnainfo.com/chicago/20141013/bridgeport/palmisano-park-advisory-council-wins-city-award

I don't serve on the park advisory council but have had the privilege of volunteering for the Bridgeport Clean and Green and Bridgeport Air and Water Show over the last few years. These events have given me the opportunity to work closely with Maureen Sullivan and learn from her the true meaning of community spirit. Her resourcefulness and ability to bring businesses, community groups and individuals together for a common purpose is exactly why I want her to be our next alderman.

Rob and Dan are both pretty great, too :) Congratulations to all!

  • Thanks Rene!
    The PAC has great ideas for the park. And, while I know that Rob & I are proud to be recognized by Friends of The Park, Maureen is the real driving force of the council. She has put in a lot of her very-limited free time to make events at Palmisano great. She doesn't give up. Having worked with her on numerous projects over the last few years I think Maureen will make a good Alderman.

Open House Chicago

The Chicago Architecture Foundation is sponsoring this free event which features 150 buildings that will be open to the public Saturday & Sunday. Several of them are right here in Bridgeport or our adjacent neighborhoods. Some buildings aren't usually open to the public. Seems like a great chance to get out and explore!

Check their website for full information: http://www.openhousechicago.org/

  • R.

    I highly recommend visiting Decorators Supply Corp at 36th & Morgan. I went during last year's OHC and thought it was such a cool work space, not to mention fascinating company history.

    Please allow me to thank all the comments I do appreciate them so first off yes it would seem vary dangerous to meet someone u don't know that's why I left my E-mail so that if I did get any instest in my services then we would meet in A public place like A gym or the park. And how I wish that I could go to school to get certified but unfortunately I cant afford to go right now I'm in over my head in dept. I was given advice by A friend who is A certified trainer about how he started to lean how to start as A trainer that he would go around the gyms that he would attend and just ask around for clants and it work for him but unfortunately for me I'm A little more shy then him to do that so I tried to see if this Would work and since I am uncerfied that's why I would be much cheap then those high priced cerfied trainers as an alternative for those who can't afford one!

    It's National Coming Out Day Today and I am proud to say I am gay and knew it all of my life. I was in the Bi sexual phase in my late teens to early 20's till I said ok I like guys plain and simple. I did loose my only family I had left because I am gay it was my aunt and uncle which I do miss very much. But I know my Mom and Dad are watching over me from Heaven and very proud of the man I became today. R.I.P. That is why I created the group called Lgbt Neighbors In Bridgeport Chicago I like to help others with their issues in life
