Hortense Ave. is in such poor shape and all they do is patch it. All these streets around us get paved yet we are completely overlooked. I have contacted the alderman's office and the city about it's terrible condition yet nothing is done about it. Alderman O'Connor, do something! I know your street just got paved.

Our internet AT&T service is horrible, cutting out once every 5 minutes or so. I was even warned this by the AT&T installer, that Edison Park was a "spotty zone" (but dumb me went ahead with it anyway). I know from some neighbors that this seems to be a common issue with AT&T around Edison Park (at least in some parts)--is anyone using another service provider they can recommend? I keep getting marketing mail from Clear, but I've also heard that their service is spotty, depending on your location. Any suggestions?

I've had one person stop by asking for a signature to get on the ballot for Alderman. It's a tough decision to sign or not. We, myself included, need to do research before signing. Our neighborhood deserves someone honest and reputable, and someone we know before signing just to get them on the ballot.

Anybody seeing "landscapers" knocking on doors during the day? They knock on doors, don't leave pamphlets, then leave. They seem like they are just casing houses. We've gotten them a few days in a row.

Does anyone know why all of those beautiful big old trees at Olympia Park were cut down?? There are now a ton of "stumps" there where these giant old trees have been standing since my childhood. I called the park and was told something about "disease" but I am incredulous. Also, one of the "stumps" now has some kind of painted mural applied to it. This is WAY ugly and now the park is starting to look more like an "inner city" park instead of the nice green haven it always has been. Anybody know what really happened and why these trees were removed??

Does anyone know what is going on with the old Duke's? I know that there is supposed to be another grocery store.Then last week there was a notice from the city that the work order was stopped because things were being done without the proper permits. Now that the sign is gone, I don't see any activity. It would be nice if someone would get it together for a change.

I just got a text saying there was a police chase and the suspects car crashed around NW Hwy and Overhill. Suspects ran North on Overhill. All I know right now. Lock your doors, alert your neighbors. I believe this to be true, but is coming to me in pieces.

Dish Dine and Drink 6169 northwest hwy in Norwood park seeking part time cook and cleaner. Call ask for mike ASAP. Or stop in. If he's not there ask to have him called in!
Was walking by this intersection last night and just noticed it. The stop sign for traffic going southeast on Avondale is partially blocked by tree limbs. There are no lines painted on pavement to indicate there is a stop sign. Saw several cars go through without stopping. I'll give them the benefit of doubt that they did not notice the sign. Slow your roll over there!!

My wife and I are looking for a person who runs a child care program out of their house. We are looking for service starting after the 1st of the year as our daughter will be 10 months. This would be Monday-Friday with holidays off.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

The area by the Alderwoman's Restaurant....Devon and Avondale in Edison Park is a real hazard for pedestrians as well as automobiles. We need a stop light there. It is a legal liability and an accident waiting to happen. Too many cars trying to criss cross and as a pedestrian it is quite a danger to cross the street there. I am not talking about this being a danger because of that construction on the corner. I am talking about ALL THE TIME. Please take care of this alderwoman if you read this. Thank you.

An ordinance was passed by the City Council yesterday which further restricts the power of the City Council's Inspector General to investigate alleged wrong doing on the part of alderman. In this day and age with the City Council's history of sordid corruption, if anything the Inspector General's powers need to be expanded not diminished. For reasons unknown, our own 41st Ward Alderman Mary O'Connor voted for this ordinance. As our public representative I think Alderman O'Connor needs to explain to the people who elected her as to why she voted for this ordinance which will only serve to protect alderman accused of wrong doing.
