Temps Rising in Traffic Hell?

As in many parts of Chicago, it seems more money, time, and attention has been invested into red-light cameras than has gone into synchronizing our traffic lights. Lincoln Park is no exception. And with the "New City" Project well underway, I'm curious to know what improvement plans are in place to accommodate the impending flow of daily traffic into and out of the

Closing founding site in Lincoln Park and expanding in Belmont Cragin

Chicago, IL – September 26, 2014
After more than 100 years in Lincoln Park, non-profit, Christopher House is moving out of its founding location at 2507 N Greenview Avenue. A little over a year ago, Christopher House opened a brand new family resource center and their first elementary school as they have expanded into Belmont Cragin on the city's far West side. They have also increased their presence in Uptown and Logan Square in response to the needs of Chicago's working poor.
“Christopher House is continuously working to provide a continuum of education to children and families in need. Christopher House has evolved over its 100 year history and this is one more milestone. It’s bittersweet. We are eager to be located in the high need communities on Chicago’s West and North sides and to bring our family of schools to the children and families in these neighborhoods, but I am also sad to leave the neighborhood that has supported us all these years” says Christopher House Chief Executive Officer, Lori Ann Baas.
Christopher House will continue to serve nearly 5,000 low-income children and families annually. The classrooms in Lincoln Park aren’t closing, just relocating to Belmont Cragin. The official close date of Christopher House’s Greenview location is September 30th. Christopher House however still encourages all those in Lincoln Park - and elsewhere - to continue to keep up to date with all of their news and events. Such as the Holiday Program, helping 600 Chicago families get through the holiday season. Find more information on the program, and all of Christopher House services, at christopherhouse.org.

Man pees in Jonquil Park

My husband was at Jonquil Park today around 3pm with our 10 month old son. A black male in his mid 40's entered the gated area and in front of my husband and son peed. He was wearing black pants, a black jacket, a bright orange hat and carrying two backpacks one of them camouflage. My husband just scooped up our son and got him out of there. The guy was gone then and he did not call the police. I told him he should have. Makes me sick. My son loves to crawl around the park :(

  • Bill Gordon Professional librarian, proud cat owner, iPad user

    Take a video of the guy using your phone or tablet. Email the vid to your local police station and demand action. If enough people did that sort of thing it just might help.

  • I can appreciate your suggestion, Bill Gorden.

    I would, however, propose that this is a suggestion a little less frightening to a man than a woman.

Electric Supplier Choice Confirmation (Notice from ComEd)

Received a letter from ComEd stating:" We have received notice that your electric supplier of choice is being changed to Integrys Energy Services, Inc......Your electric supplier may have been changed as part of a governmental aggregation program managed by your municipality, county or township."

Did anyone else get this?

We definitely didn't proactively opt in or opt out of anything, so I'm guessing we were switched automatically. Not sure of the ramifications of this. Thoughts?

  • Interesting. Integrys didn't even show up as an option when I went to that site and typed in my zip code. Hopefully, the differences between all the companies are nominal.

  • Be careful what you read on the internet. There's a lot of discussion of the rates for Integrys that were set last March. Back then there were only two monthly fees: $22.36 or $9.06. In July. the city renegotiated the deal with Integrys and there are now 10 different fee...

    Be careful what you read on the internet. There's a lot of discussion of the rates for Integrys that were set last March. Back then there were only two monthly fees: $22.36 or $9.06. In July. the city renegotiated the deal with Integrys and there are now 10 different fee tiers.

    I am also sure that someone will point you to this calculator:
    http://www.chicagopowercalculator.com/
    which uses the old outdated rates and will not give you an accurate answer for the new rates.

    The Illinois Commerce Commission has a long list of available alternative suppliers here
    http://www.pluginillinois.org/offers.aspx?said=1
    But note that the list does not include municipal aggregation deals like the one with Integrys.

    There is a discussion of the new rates and what to do here:
    https://chicago.everyblock.com/announcements/jul23-integrys-yes-no-6274153/
    I hope you will read through that thread and if you still have any questions ask over there.
