Our park needs more residents to step up and get involved. This past year four residents stepped up to get new play ground equipment, roof repairs, plant a garden, conduct a user survey and host a game party for children. Imagine what we can do more with more volunteers. You do not need to stand for election. You can help with a specific project. It will not take a lot of time but it will pay forward. Plan to attend and bring your ideas. The meeting will be held at McGuane's field house.

Comcast Outage

So we're going on 2 days without Comcast service. We're new to Bridgeport and previously only had very short and rare outages. Is this typical for Comcast here? Comcast also told me that the whole neighborhood is out, which is weird since I'm able to jump on some business' xfinity share right now. Does anyone know what the issue is and why it's taking so long? (Naturally, Comcast has no information except that they're working on it.)

  • Our house is in the 3200 block of Lituanica. Here, the Comcast signal is intermittent in wet weather. Line workers and techs have been to the house 6 times in the past three years. Reason for the trouble is always something new or yet another "failing" Comcast router. The phone calls, service calls and follow up calls from the line workers once they have checked the main line are becoming tedious. When a comparable or better option comes along we will make the switch.

Looking to rent a hall in Bridgeport/Canaryville/Pilsen area

Looking for a hall to rent for a baby shower near Canaryville/Bridgeport or Pilsen area. Preferably where we can bring our own food. Any suggestions.

  • Sue Chad Sussie Q.

    In Canaryville, there is Union Ave. Church Hall. In Bridgeport the VFW Hall at 32nd & May and St. Jerome's School hall at 28th & Princeton. I heard also the newly built park Taylor-Lauridsen rents out space too in Canaryville. All of these you bring your own food.

    @ denise....

    LOL......that's because most guys in a classroom setting are too busy trying to convince themselves and the instructor what they already know.

    Typically, women are simply better listeners, and have better control of ego.

    Wanted to correct a little technical error in nomenclature. "22mm and 38mm"

    That should be ".22" and ".38" (or .380) those particular calibers are expressed in inches and are not metric, say like "9mm" which is a caliber expressed in its metric dimension.

    The reason your instructor suggested .22 is probably obvious to you now that you've taken the class, and that is low-recoil. .22 is easy to shoot because of this, and folks usually have a better time with accuracy and shot placement especially during the marksmanship qualification component of the class.

    It can be easily argued that while .22 is easy to shoot, it is (in my humble opinion) an extremely poor choice for self-defense. I hope this was covered in your class.

    .38 and .380 have much higher lethality rates ("stopping power") and are often suggested for shooters with less arm/wrist strength.

    The fact that you demonstrated proficiency in this caliber during your qualification is EXCELLENT!

    good for you, Denise!

    practice often, remember those gun safety rules always and stay safe!

    You've been tagged as unable to think beyond you and your own people. That makes you pretty much a Daley. Or Kozlar, that's a german cheese right? Not all that ripe yet. Whether or not she can balance her checkbook, at least Sullivan would be the first 11th Ward Irish not grabbing everything for her people while leaving the rest of us shullubs to wallow in trashy streets. But wait! Balcer, now there is a man of the people. Let's all make him the write-in candidate.

Missing Cat

We just got home from a day and a half away and our kitty is missing. He's black and white with a green collar with his name (Jude) and our phone number on it. We live in 34th and Morgan. If you've seen him or have him please let us know, we miss him dearly.

  • You might want to try www.FindToto.com. It is a service that calls people within a certain area to alert of a missing dog/cat.

    I might have seen him in the alley between Morgan and Carpenter yesterday. I'll keep an eye out!

Alderman Cardenas: A rubber-stamp for Rahm

Interesting new site that grades how independent or not your alderman is by tracking whether they have an independent perspective and prioritize their constituency, or just act as another of Mayor One Percent's meat puppets for impoverishing Chicago for the benefit of the wealthy and big corporations. See http://takebackchicago.org/find-your-alderman/alderman-george-cardenas

Cardenas gets a big thumbs-down here: He never votes against his master, and many of the things he has supported has caused harm in our community.

  • John W. More equal wealth based on more equal work

    Interestingly, that Website lists Fioretti as a Champion. And what happened to Fioretti's ward when there was redistricting? 100% of his former constituents were moved to other wards. And the 2nd ward was moved from the near South side to the near North side.

  • Justin K. McKinley Parker since 2008, south sider since 1998

    Supposedly, now that Karen Lewis has bowed out of the race, Rahm is using his mayoral war chest to punish aldermen who vote independently. It's easy to see how the corrupt Democratic machine in Chicago (and Illinois) really works against the interests of its constituency. (I think Republicans are much worse -- blatantly corrupt and malevolent, in fact -- but the Democrats still have some work to do.)

    John, I would be surprised if this would not have been done as part of the planning for the new intersection, no? Is this not part of contemporary traffic management and construction practices? I have hopes that Pershing and Ashland turns out to be 1) a more efficient intersection, and 2) less of an eyesore.
