    I'm soooo excited for Napolitano. I heard hes going to walk across water on his way to standing in the millde of the run ways to stop the air plane noise! Hes also going to show up at every police and fire call in 41 to help the situation since he is a vet for both! Hes even going to personally fill in pot holes since the city is so behind. I'm pushing for Norwood to be a gated community to minimize crime and feel safe again. Mary said they wont do it. But Napolitano has my vote if he will help!

Was our mail in cold storage?

Today (February 24) I received a greeting card posted first class on Feb. 2 and several other important pieces of mail posted at the beginning of the month. My question is, who's in charge over there on Northwest Highway and how can they lose mail for three weeks? I guess I should consider myself lucky though as I did receive the multitude of mayoral and aldermanic election materials.

  • PattyM Concerned Citizen

    We have the same problem over and over. Charge bills that never come, news
    magazines that are out of date, no mail for three days in a row and then a huge pile.
    ANd our mail generally comes between 6 and 7PM if at all.....

  • We have the same problem with mail in Norwood Park. Some days we get no mail at all. Magazines and other mail comes late.

Alderman O'Connor

Now that the aldermanic election is 2 days away, It is hard to believe that the anti Alderman O'Connor dialogue that was so prevalent a few months ago on Every Block has literally dwindled to nothing when ideally it should be building to a fever pitch heading into Tuesday's election. In her four years in office, our surly, do nothing alderman has been nothing but a go along puppet for Mayor Emanuel. Her office staff has been non-responsive and argumentative...

Now that the aldermanic election is 2 days away, It is hard to believe that the anti Alderman O'Connor dialogue that was so prevalent a few months ago on Every Block has literally dwindled to nothing when ideally it should be building to a fever pitch heading into Tuesday's election. In her four years in office, our surly, do nothing alderman has been nothing but a go along puppet for Mayor Emanuel. Her office staff has been non-responsive and argumentative when requesting their assistance. She has no accomplishments to show for her $100,000+ part time job performance as alderman, and she she has been ineffectual in the airport noise debate. Days before the election then, it is not surprising to find crammed in our mailboxes, 5 -10 glossy photographed filled fliers of her promoting her do nothing self. Some even paid for no doubt by Emanuel, her puppet master. You can tell how utterly clueless and out of touch of our representative she has been by the fact that she includes photographs of herself with Emanuel in her mailings. Like that is going to draw her more votes!? Obviously, I would like to see either of the other viable candidates, Lomanto or Napolitano win the election. But you really have to wonder how realistic that will be with the proliferation of O'Connor yard signs and like I have said the absence of any current anti O'Connor dialogue.

Mail delivery on Sunday?

Since when is mail delivered on Sunday? I received 3 days worth of mail this past Sunday 2/8

  • cbuzz lifelong resident

    WHAT???????????????????? How about they do their jobs? If any of us did our jobs the way the USPS did their jobs, we'd be fired!

  • Eric Blair Never again!

    Cbuzz. We can't even fire our elected thieves?

    Greed flourishes where accountability is impotent.

    Good work should promote teaching which improves the breed?

    Shall we?
