Halloween in Edgewater Glen?

So I keep reading about how Edgewater Glen does a great Trick or Treat event every year,but can't find street names-anyone know what streets they are?

Also is it safe? It's dark out there so debating if I should take my daughter out around here.

    Sorry for my prior rant: I’m stressing out over having nobody to spell me handing out candy this year--neither my husband and son can be home tomorrow night. Due to the high volume of trick-or-treaters, it’s practically nonstop well into the evening, which even in prior years required tag-teaming to be able to even take bathroom breaks. Because it’s not a school night, it’ll be a longer haul as well--from the end of the school day till the crowd winds down could be as long as seven hours. Nonetheless, I stocked up today more than ever before, because I felt so guilty having to turn off the porch light and lock the door when my supply ran out at 8 pm last year. I do hope the kids don’t freeze: gale force winds, rain and possibly even snow are in the forecast (and I remember what a bummer it was having to wear a coat trick-or-treating). My porch-duty costume? Probably Nanook of the North (Side).

A Man in Dire "Need" Depends on the Kindness of "Neighbors"

A friend noted that he did this to him during the summer near Amundsen High School. Yesterday, he was at Bryn Mawr and Ravenswood. On 10/29, a middle-aged, African-American man showed me an inhaler needed for his daughter's asthma. She needed help right away. He displayed $7 in cash, but he needs $10. He has three daughters and lives a block away. Anyway you can help? Please give. And God bless you.

  • America breeds and supports total half-wits. When you give a bum money- you are going against natural selection and in reality- rather then helping you are enabling disturbed people to thrive, breed, spread diseases and eat up your tax money. Put your money towards something worthwhile. Better yet- if you want to donate... Donate your TIME.

    THESE BUMS MAKE MORE MONEY THAN PEOPLE WITH JOBS!!

  • What this post proves is that America breeds some of the most kind and giving people.

    Ms Strickland for someone who works for the YMCA of Metropolitan Chicago your words are pretty harsh.

Troubles With FedEx Packages, Anyone Else?

Hey Neighbors,

The first one was delivered, but left outside my building - not even in the foyer and our buzzer was not pressed. The next was not delivered. According to tracking, it was delivered and signed for, although no attempt was made to contact my husband or I upon its arrival. I left a note for my neighbors to...

Hey Neighbors,

I live at the corner of Lakewood and Elmwood, and last week was supposed to receive two packages from FedEx. The first one was delivered, but left outside my building - not even in the foyer and our buzzer was not pressed. The next was not delivered. According to tracking, it was delivered and signed for, although no attempt was made to contact my husband or I upon its arrival. I left a note for my neighbors to ask if anyone signed for it to please come forward (the name FedEx says was on the signature did not match any of our residents) and a neighbor came forward to say the same thing happened to her. Same day, same time delivery, also no contact made and package was not received. We called FedEx who says they can't find the driver of that route and that we're basically on our own. Anyone else having trouble getting their packages from them recently?

Much thanks!

    It happened to us as well about two months ago. My son works from home and was waiting for a package that never appeared. He called UPS and they claim they delivered it but had to "talk to the driver first". He waited (2) weeks for the call back that never came. Called again and got the run around. We don't know if the package was stolen by the driver or if he left it outside and someone came along and picked it up or is just lost in the UPS system. He got a replacement but drove to the UPS distribution center to pick it up rather than take the chance on the driver.

    Mis-deliveries happen, too. I spent 20 minutes last week on the phone with UPS because the driver had left a package in our foyer that had the right street number on it but should have been delivered to that address on Winona, not on Argyle, which is where it was left. I told them I would just walk it over but I wasn't sure if I would be able to get it inside that person's entryway. I also wanted UPS to know it had happened. They insisted on having the driver come back for it--which was just as inconvenient for me as walking it over would have been but at least correct recipient probably eventually got her delivery from Piper Lime.

    I work for a company that sends hundreds of UPS packages out every week, mostly without incident, but sometimes they do screw up. Fed Ex is actually quite a bit worse when it comes to errors and sloppiness, like not bothering to make second delivery attempts, etc.

    Only if you're a CDL driver do you have to get it actually replaced, otherwise you just have to notify them of the new address; the Chicago police themselves often don't know this, though. I've been told twice by two different cops my license was invalid. The beat cop in 24 (a real d'khead) gave me a ticket for something unrelated, because I challenged him on this fact, in fact. And it turns out, he's wrong. His ticket was also bogus and thrown out.

    'How do I get my license and registration corrected if my name or address changes?
    Within 10 days of changing your name or address, you must notify the Secretary of State by visiting a Driver Services facility or by writing to the Driver Services Department, Central Services, 2701 S. Dirksen Parkway, Springfield, Illinois 62723. If you wish to have a new driver's license reflecting the change, you must visit a driver facility and pay a $5 fee. To change your address, you can use the online Address Change Notification to transmit notification of address changes to the Driver Services Department. Please be sure to include your Driver's License or Identification Card number and registration number. A change of name for driver's license or ID card must be completed at a Driver Services facility. A CDL holder must obtain a corrected driver's license within 30 days of any such change.'

Is this typical now?

I was walking on Bryn Mawr/Winthrop near the 7-11 and there was a Chicago police officer standing up against the building near the door with an assault rifle. There was no obvious criminal activity occurring and there was no armored truck picking up cash from a business there. Is this normal now for the police to stand on the street with assault rifles? I like the police presence, but unless it's a SWAT raid, why in the hell do they need assault rifles? Maybe it's silly to be more concerned about an assault rifle than a standard police revolver, but I found it very unsettling.

  • DK, it doesn't really matter the situation or how fast the officer thinks. 5.56 is a powerful, high velocity round, its going to keep going after it hits someone and will likely still have enough force to go through a wall. Stray rounds are going to be a nightmare. Any...

    DK, it doesn't really matter the situation or how fast the officer thinks. 5.56 is a powerful, high velocity round, its going to keep going after it hits someone and will likely still have enough force to go through a wall. Stray rounds are going to be a nightmare. Any of the standard handguns CPD carries are going to have 15+ rounds in the magazine and aren't going to be nearly as likely to injure bystanders in a busy, densely populated urban area. No cop has any business carrying a rifle unless he's going into a situation where he knows a suspect is going to have body armor, its just irresponsible.

    Lets hope this idiot doesn't run into a situation where he needs to "think fast" because someone is going to get hurt and then the city is going to lose a lawsuit.

  • William,
    You make a lot of assumptions. You don't know his/her training, skill, experience, load and caliber, etc. in light of attacks on military and police, their job is even more dangerous. Plus, to call them idiots make you sound idiotic.

Food Littering

What is it about this neighborhood that people feel like it's ok to throw their half eaten food in the grass? Its not pretty, and it's not a good time to pry my dogs mouth open to pull a chicken bone, a pastry, or bread out. If you must feed the birds and rabbits, please do it in the enclosed areas. Also, I'm pretty sure they don't eat chicken.

  • Call people politely. "F.... slob" is something I wouldn't say to anyone who doesn't realize that littering is bad. These are the same people that don't realize that stabbing, punching or shooting you for disrespecting them is bad.

    Emily I think you're misinterpreting me explaining the lack of trashcans as tolerating it. I'm not. But, if people didn't "need" trashcans on the street corners, there wouldn't be any, anywhere. There are many neighborhoods in this city where streetscape trash cans are prevalent, you don't have to walk for 15 minutes to find a trash can. The city wouldn't spend $4500/each on Big Belly trash compactors, etc., if they weren't needed. They wouldn't spend $1000 on the regular ones if they weren't needed. Clearly there is a need in other areas of the city, and magically not in Edgewater and Rogers Park? No, doubt it.

    Again I'd ask who funds the streetscape trash cans typically... Does anyone actually know this?

Police on 5600 N Kenmore

I was leaving for the vet and there were 4 cops parked up and down the street. Anyone have a clue what that was about?

Wood Floor Repair

Hey there... Does anybody have the name of a carpenter or floor guy that could take a look at my kitchen wood floor. There is a soft spot in a certain area that I'm not sure what the cause is and I want to have somebody give me an idea and maybe a quote. Thanks!

  • jdowling Buena Park

    Throw in a couple wood screws in the soft spot and tack the flooring back down.

    a guy named Edwardo who didn't speak English, I txted him back and forth and his son would transpose... do you know any real estate agents? They're good for "floor people" -- I would never use an online search to find this type of work in Chicago. He did an amazing job, I'll see if I can find his #. It was the only part of my reno I GCed myself and my own GC wanted to hire him for other jobs. That was somewhere around 160-175 SF and the demo work was done and I did the sub-floor. The "clear grade" (no knots in wood, and possibly longer boards themselves) was $1-2 more /SF than standard grade that most use these days.

    Though I guess that's 8.ish SF so maybe it's not terrible given you have demo work and sub-floors. It just sounds like a lot. You're sure your joists themselves are OK too?

Stop Signs & SUV's

You know who you are. I stop for stop signs. What can I say. Some streets have a Stop Sign every block, some every other block. These are not very long blocks, so you really can't get much speed up So I am going maybe 20 mph. It was a Cube on Friday that actually passed me up . This a.m. it was a Lincoln Navigator that passed me up. Where are the cops when you need them. Needless to say, both vehicles did not get far. They both caught the lights at the next major street. In fact the Lincoln nearly t-boned a car that turned left in front of them.

    It's not just suvs... lots of people blow thru stop signs. Must be because they (scoffers) are so awesome, they don't need to be courteous. :<

  • James B. Best neighbor evah

    I used to think, the more expensive the car, the more obnoxious the driver. However, I've been cut off by enough low end drivers, I have no map left. Just like anything else, driving karma adds up! I won't be passing you, and I won't honk when you come to a full stop at a sign.

I figure I'll post this now because it just needs to be said. If I'd have said it sooner maybe we wouldn't have to live in fear of summoned meteors and what not. Be kind to your neighbors! It's gonna be a long winter. Who wants some comics?
