Potholes are slowing traffic

Good job City of Chicago. Haven't seen potholes repaired yet. It's been keeping the speeders under control! Just drive down most O streets north if Touhy and you'll see what I mean. In the meantime keep the Harley in the garage. You'll risk being swallowed up in a pothole!

  • We live in Edison Park and our potholes were filled yesterday

Best Friday Fish Fry?

Where can one find the best Friday Fish Fry?

  • Bob

    We like the Mecca. Closest to a good old fashioned Wisconsin fish fry. Only thing missing is the ball of cheese on the table & potato pancakes. Food is very good.

Olympia Park - Dog Question

Is there a leash law? I just asked a person to please put her dog on the leash after I saw her dog approach two other dogs aggressively run after two dogs within a minute. Her dog pee'd on one of the dogs. I asked nicely, but my request was not received well by her.

  • If it's a serious threat or attack, quietly follow the person home . When you have their address, call the police.

  • I contacted the alderman's office last year when an unleashed dog in Olympia Park approached me and my dog (leashed) and jumped on me with its dirty paws all over my work clothes. I ended up having to change clothes and missed my train. The owner was on the other...

    I contacted the alderman's office last year when an unleashed dog in Olympia Park approached me and my dog (leashed) and jumped on me with its dirty paws all over my work clothes. I ended up having to change clothes and missed my train. The owner was on the other side of the park and had no idea what was going on. The alderman's office told me I needed to go to a CAPS meeting and complain to the police. The same dog is always off leash with run of the park and relieves itself without an owner around to pick it up (which I also believe is at least a city ordinance?) Not a huge priority for the police but I assume they have to catch in the act to enforce?

Air Plane Noise

Yesterday day was a nice day to enjoy expect for the constant air planes flying over Edison Park. Anyone else had enough?

  • CGR neighborhood watching :)

    You can always move to the south side where you'll hear nothing but gunshots all the time.

What happens when the weather gets warmer?....Do we stay inside, because of the jet noise? Smartie...re:of moving to the southside....question: has the FedEx plane come over your house at 3:30am and shake you awake??! Probably not....By the way...Park Ridge is a lot closer to the airport! I mean, the last time I looked at a map.....I don't live near the airport and many of us don't either. There are some of us who want to have some quiet in their city lives and not have city officials twist the taxpayers arm for their coffers. MHO....

Potholes Everywhere

Anybody know when/if the city plans to repave streets in Norwood Park??? Some of them resemble a war zone!!!

  • Replacing is probably just a dream. You can try contacting Mary O'conner. I'd be happy if I could at least get some potholes filled.i don't see that happening either, even though I've reported many.

  • avb

    Good luck trying to get potholes filled! Some streets in Edison Park are littered with them as well. It has gotten so bad that I can't drive down my own street because of the damage it will due to my car. Hopefully car dealerships start selling tanks and humvees so I can drive down my own street again.

Loud Boom Heard

My neighbour mentioned hearing a loud boom the other night, Friday night to be exact. I did not hear anything but just now, Sunday March 30th I heard an extremely loud boom that woke me up. It was a little after 3am and was followed by a smaller explosion sound. Obviously my first assumption is fireworks but I just wondered if anyone else heard this or has a better guess. Thanks-

  • It was much louder than what a crash would have made. I heard it as well. Sounded almost like an M80 going off but more powerful. Woke me from a dead sleep. I only heard it Friday night though.

  • my sister who lives closer to the kennedy heard this BOOM also. Said she has heard it about 3X in the last 6 months. Someone mentioned possible "bombs" coming from Ohare to scare the geese away??? Anyone hear this theory??

Just Energy - Natural Gas

Aggressive salespeople going door to door on both sides of Palatine west of Harlem on Wednesday March 19th. Research indicates there have been many complaints in the past regarding their tactics. Attorneys General in IL and NY both brought legal action against the firm in recent years. Be aware.

  • jack oriole park oriole park homeowner

    I had the same experience two weeks back with either a gas or elec switch over. I had to say some unsavory words for the guy to listen to me. Don't waste your time, don't open the door.

  • Do not open the door for anybody. Burglaries & Home Invasions have been occuring more frequently in the past year. They are also impersonating Utility workers. I post these crimes on my Twitter, so everyone knows what's happening. If it happens here, it can happen in Indiana, California, Ohio,etc. Be careful.

  • Do not open the door for anyone you do not personally know. Chances are very very good that you do not want or need to talk to them. Keep your doors locked. Unfortunately things have gotten that way.

    Not looking too good for them, I am from that area, I lived 3 blocks away my whole life, and many of my friends that still live there will not even give it a chance. I liked Sandy's, but I like to try new things, granted I only went a few times and each time I did, we were the only people in the place, except for the table of owners/family that are always in the back. I never had a comfortable feeling in there. If they put in a full bar with seats and had beer/drink specials they MIGHT get some regulars to give it a chance. But without that I don't see anything good happening here.

  • OParker Native Chicagoan

    Ok bar, big place, not crowded, at 7:30 a band was beginning to load in.
    Burgers aren't very tasty. The patty reminded me of the Salisbury stake from a TV dinner and was over priced, but a large portion and could possibly feed two.
    Hopefully it appeals to some and the place makes it. I won't be going back.

Olympia Park - Tennis courts used as dog run

If you are using the tennis courts as a dog run please make sure to pickup after your dog. A resident here cleaned up the courts yesterday so he could play tennis. It was absolutely disgusting how much he cleaned up. This goes along with people not picking up after their dogs in the park. Amazing..
