Twisted Tapas Still Going Strong!

I started going to twisted Tapas a year ago February and cannot tell you how many times my husband and friends and I have been there since but I went again just last night! Food is still as excellent as it was a year ago and the staff is just as friendly and fun! It is SO great to see this place continue to do so well. If you haven't been there in a while make sure to get out into what is sure to be the last of winter and have a nice dinner! I think we are all getting cabin fever and tired of going out in the cold! Thanks Twisted!!

Appeal Process

Has anyone filed any forms to appeal the value of their condo? I have the 2015 real estate assessed valuation appeal form but I just came across another form on the cook county website listing a very long list of documents to submit, along with pics of your building. I'm trying to figure out what's actually needed to appeal.

    You can pretty much make the Bible say anything thing you want. Go back a few books and, Whoa, there's Jesus saying how near impossible it is for venture capitalists to make it into the kingdom of heaven and how we should care for poor folks who vote Democrat. Go back a couple of dozen more books, and Yikes! there's a prophet saying that Yahweh will abort the children of pregnant women. Zoom all the way to the end, and Zaasz! there's a map of the end times absolutely tailor-made for right-wing geopolitics in the Middle East including specific instructions on invading Iraq. Hold the book at a 90 degree angle to the left and, behold! Jesus morphs into Marx. If you hold your face over the open Bible in the sunshine, you will tan quicker. If you hold it over your head, you will tan slower.

Due to an unavoidable schedule conflict of a key Chicago Department of Transportation official, the community meeting regarding proposed modifications to the Touhy/Rogers/Ridge intersection, originally scheduled for Thursday, March 5th at 7:00 p.m., is POSTPONED until Thursday, March 19th, at 7:00 p.m. The meeting will still be held at the Pottawattomie Park Fieldhouse, 7340 N. Rogers.

I apologize for the inconvenience.

Below is a reprint of the earlier notice I posted describing the proposal and its history:

Funding for design improvements was approved by the voters in the 2011 Participatory Budgeting election, but the City delayed implementation of the plan until Peoples Gas finished with its gas main installation work in the area. The gas main work is now completed.

The plan proposed by the City of Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT) is illustrated in the photo below.

The plan extends the curb at the southwest corner of the intersection to reduce the angle between Touhy and Rogers and shortening the crosswalk at that location from 100 feet to 40 feet.

  • Doesn't sound like CDOT needs or wants community input. Is this just their presentation of what is planned for eventual work?

bulls win without rose, butler

The bulls playoff hopes seemed dim with news of rose' s newest injury. But the surgery went well and we expect him back in a few weeks. Then just as fans breathed a sigh of relief, butler suffers an injury and is sidelined. But the team worked hard last night and pulled out a victory anyway. I'm impressed with our depth and the players stepping up and making the most of an opportunity. Still, this has been a weird year for the bulls and the league overall: young guns, injuries aplenty and odd slumps.

How will the bulls fare down the stretch, as the season winds down and the playoffs begin?

Help!! State Budget Cuts

I just learned the word is out from Springfield that massive budget cuts proposed by IL's new guv will severely impact social services (always conservatives' favorite target). This worries me from a general standpoint as an IL resident, but also from a personal one because my young adult son is disabled and he's housed in a special facility in the suburbs to provide a long-term supportive living environment for the disabled. If these budget cuts are approved, we've learned the program that funds our son's living and work facilities will lose over $800K from its operating budget.

We are pretty freaked. These programs and others like them around the State are absolutely essential to the population they serve, and yet they have suffered continual, deep budget cuts throughout the years. They are struggling to meet the many expenses of providing their services as it is. If they lose this money, we have no idea how they can stay open. If they close, where will its fragile and vulnerable population go? There must be a better way to balance IL's budget than robbing disadvantaged people.

The only chance is to put enough pressure on the State reps to veto Mr. Rauner's proposal. Anyone who could write letters of protest to their elected officials, we would be so grateful. Also, can anyone tell me to whom shall we address our letters? Who are the ones that serve our community? Thanks!

Learn how to appeal your property tax assessment and possibly lower your tax bill at a special workshop sponsored by County Commissioner Larry Suffredin, County Assessor Joe Berrios and my office. The workshop will be held on Wednesday, March 4th, 6:30 p.m., at the Loyola Park Fieldhouse, 1230 W. Greenleaf (at the Lake).

The assessed value of your property is one of the factors that determine the amount of property taxes you pay. This assessed value is determined by the Cook County Assessor. If you believe your property assessment is improper, you have a right to appeal that assessment.

Because of the improving economy, the average assessed valuation for property in Rogers Park has increased 12.75%. If your 2015 assessment increased more than 12.75% over your 2014 assessment, you should seriously consider appealing your assessment.

If you own property in Rogers Park Township (Devon to the Evanston border, Kedzie to the Lake), you have until Friday, March 20th, to submit an appeal to the Cook County Assessor.

At the workshop, you will learn how the assessment process works, how to file an appeal with the County Assessor's office and how an appeal is granted. Please bring your property tax bill in order to more efficiently file an appeal. Staff from the Assessor's office will be available to answer questions and help complete appeal forms.

If you are unable to attend the workshop, the Cook County Assessor's website provides an overview of the property tax appeal process, including step-by-step instructions on how to appeal your assessment. For information on the appeals process and to file an appeal online, visit:

http://www.cookcountyassessor.com/frequentlyaskedquestions.aspx

Make sure you file your appeal before the March 20th deadline.

For assistance in filing your appeal, contact my staff assistant Michael Land at mike.land@cityofchicago.org or 773-338-5796.

I wanted to share that I've had really positive experiences going to the pharmacy at Jewel in the Gateway Center on Howard and recommend them. I previously had our family's prescriptions at Walgreen's, where it was frequently crowded and the pharmacists and techs often seem super busy. Ever since switching over, I've found that the pharmacists at Jewel really do have time to answer questions, look up your meds, etc. One time when I had asked to add flavoring to my son's medicine (which Walgreens had previously done), the pharmacist actually came and found me in the shopping aisles to ask a question and tell me about how the flavoring could effect the medicine if it wasn't stored properly, and that this medicine was already very sweet and might not really need flavoring. Wow, that was really great to know they were being so vigilant. Just wanted to pass it on and give some compliments to the Jewel pharmacists. :)

    Politely decline them, maybe snap a discreet photo, close the door and call 911 with a description and tell them people are trespassing in your building. Which they are.
    Enough of these boneheads get hauled off maybe they'll cease this sort of garbage.

    The woman explained that my electric bill will remain exactly the same, with the fix rates for energy(not including delivery and taxes)

My wife, 3 month old baby, and I are currently looking at apartments all over Rogers Park to move at the end of this month. Recently we looked at an apartment that is stunningly beautiful and perfect for our family. However, we noticed that right around the corner there is a blue light police camera box. (Flashing very annoyingly bright at night). We are new to this city and do not know this area very well.

Does anyone have any insight into what sort of walk safety/crime rates are like around Seeley & Fargo? My wife likes to go running and we like to be outdoors a lot. Peckish Pig is right there on Howard and we love that place!

This apartment is amazing but that police camera box really freaked us out!
We are seasoned city livers.. We don't get freaked out by everything.. Its just I never lived near one of those cameras. I usually only see those in only pretty darn bad neighborhoods (when I lived in Philly.)

    POLICE CAMERAS -- Peg, the second police camera does NOT imply anything about the area. Remember those 3 sting operations I mentioned? That is why the camera is at Birchwood & Hoyne. We supported police in those sting operations. It remained because of issues at Howard & Hoyne, which have substantially declined after we, residents, "dragged" the convenience store owner before hearings at Chicago Business Affairs office (and they threatened revocation of his license). Residents requesting the removal of camera is as onerous of a process as is residents requesting a camera. We have other priorities at the moment (park improvement, neighborhood block events, etc.) that take priority.

  • Really great of you and your neighbors to get in the game like that, Bernard. No question that blue light cameras are reason for potential new residents to be concerned. But if I understand correctly that you are taking steps to have a camera removed because the area has calmed, that's completely awesome.

If you are able to help or can recommend an option for Lucy we would be so grateful.

Reminder: Weds March 5 meeting re: Touhy/Rogers intersection redesign

The meeting is at 7pm at Pottawattomie Park. This is an article describing the redesign:
http://www.dnainfo.com/chicago/20150226/rogers-park/public-meeting-set-for-hazardous-touhy-ridge-intersection-alderman-says

Not certain I have any ideas in lieu of the planned design; it's a tough intersection, no matter what direction you're heading in a vehicle. That the eastbound Touhy traffic approaches from the crest of a hill makes visibility for the Touhy-to-Rogers left turn is an added challenge. I'll be interested in the discussion.

  • LET'S TRY THURSDAY MARCH 5: sorry for the egregious error!

  • Joe Moore Alderman, 49th Ward

    Due to an unavoidable schedule conflict of a key Department of Transportation Official, the meeting has been RESCHEDULED to Thursday, March 19th at 7:00 p.m. The location of the meeting remains the same.

    I apologize for the inconvenience.

Slick move by Pritzker and Moore on Rogers Park Plaza

I knew it was coming any day. The plans were there but the rich and powerful were waiting until the election was over. That's how the 1% and the politicians they have in their pocket work.

RP Election Ennui

Yesterday's election numbers are interesting. Terrible turn-out overall throughout the City. The cold probably had something to do with it, but I think it was also a sense that people just aren't very supportive of the candidates who are/were running. I do believe that if "none of the above" was an option in the mayoral race, that would have garnered more than 50%!!

Anyhow, in our Ward, here are the numbers:

1) We have 25,105 registered voters.

Yesterday's election numbers are interesting. Terrible turn-out overall throughout the City. The cold probably had something to do with it, but I think it was also a sense that people just aren't very supportive of the candidates who are/were running. I do believe that if "none of the above" was an option in the mayoral race, that would have garnered more than 50%!!

Anyhow, in our Ward, here are the numbers:

1) We have 25,105 registered voters.
2) 8,380 voted yesterday (33.38%).
3) 5,566 voted for Joe (giving him 66.42% of the vote), but only 22.17% of registered voters bothered to vote for him.
4) 2,814 voted for Don (giving him 33.58% of the vote), but only 11.21% of registered voters bothered voting for him.

So, what does RP want in an alderman? Let's describe the experience and qualities we seek in an alderman in this Ward. (Let's try REALLY hard NOT to use this as a chance to bash Joe and/or Don, but instead, design our ideal candidate!)

I'll start the list with the following:
1) Someone willing to lead by talking about the seriousness of the fiscal problems facing the City and that none of the ways to address them will be pleasant (think chemo).
2) Someone who prioritizes education based on what is good for the kids and not what is good for the adults.

Let's keep the list going!!

Plumber needed

Hello, Can any of you recommend a good plumber in the Rogers Park neighborhood? The kitchen sink in my condo unit has been backing up and making gurgling noises. My management company isn't take care of it as quickly or thoroughly as I'd like so I want to take matters into my own hands.

  • urban handyman 773-262-4422 urbanhandyman.com

  • rlynn ackerman NE Rogers Park resident since 1956

    Please try Jay (HERRICK PLUMBING) 773-447-4417. He is wonderfully honest and has done excellent work for me for more than five years. Personal experiences for our residents have been so good that our building hired him for a very big job last year.

    The local Chamber of Comix printed full color reproductions on the same kind of paper and sold them for a discount price of $11. Each ticket only cost them seven cents to make. So far they sold more than 100 and raked in almost twelve hundred dollars. Most of the money will be donated to the widow's and orphan's fund at the local shelter for lost herps. Winter is very dangerous for them so they need shelter and warm cloths.
