Chicago

Anyone recommend a reliable cab service from Edision/Norwood park to O'Hare. Most cabbies don't like this short route.

  • Flash Cab is good never let me down. I can't believe people are recommending Park Ridge?? First they charge more. Second the cars are old and filthy. Third the drivers are sketchy. I'll walk before I use then again

  • maybe you are talking about chicago cabs? you must live close if walking is an option. me...................i'd rather call park ridge. (maybe you just had a bad day with park ridge)

Edison Park Elementary 5K

I thought that the neighborhood had to be petitioned to be able to have events that closes down our streets and inconveniencing the people who live in the direct areas they are holding this event. If we have to have a majority petition of neighbors to have a block party, the school should have to do the same with ALL homes and streets involved.

I thought that the neighborhood had to be petitioned to be able to have events that closes down our streets and inconveniencing the people who live in the direct areas they are holding this event. If we have to have a majority petition of neighbors to have a block party, the school should have to do the same with ALL homes and streets involved. I'm fed up with the Edison Park Elementary students, faculty, and parents and the Res High School students using my yard as if they owned it and no respect for the ACCUAL owners. And when they are asked to use the sidewalk, all I get is foul mouthed adults and students with rude comments and their trash all over my yard.

  • I agree with wally obrochta, maybe this isn't the neighborhood for you. Good schools equal good neighborhoods. I'd love to hear about your involment/experience in the LSC. You can definitely make a change if you wanted to.

    I think your all missing the point, this is the house his mother and father built so he wants to be there. I live right across from Taft and we have permit parking and the parents start parking in front of my house any where from an hour before they get out to an hour after. I hate it I can't leave my house at all because I won't even get parking in front of my own house with permit parking! Im sorry you could not even get out to take your mother to the ER that is just wrong! They really should respect your property! Good luck at that meeting!

Mail delivery issues

Is anyone having issues with their mail delivery? I am getting pieces of other peoples mail delivered along with mine, and now I know that my mail is not being delivered properly as I received a past due notice from ComEd for a bill I never received. I always take the wrongly delivered mail to the correct house if close by, or to the mailbox for proper delivery. I have complained to the post office and would encourage others to do the same if they are having issues as their errors are going to cost the community in late fees and declining credit scores.

  • radiochck Trying to escape

    I've been missing things for awhile now. I'm thinking that the staff at the post office have been taking things. I have mentioned it to them and have received nothing but nastiness and attitude from them.

  • I read this post last week and thought to myself "Thank god this hasn't happened to me". Well, this weekend one of my neighbors handed me one of my credit card statements that was delivered to her house by mistake. : (

Train crossing gates and signals

Does anyone know why the crossing gates were down and the signals going continuously for over 30 minutes in Edison Park yesterday around 4pm?
I drove around forever until I finally ended up driving down to Cumberland and Touhy to get around the mess.

  • This is the answer I got from the email that i sent to the 41st ward office:
    According to Union Pacific, Wednesday evening important railroad equipment was tampered with somewhere between the Edison Park area and Park Ridge. This action caused the gates at each crossing to malfunction, thus creating a headache for many motorists in the area. Union Pacific, the ICC and the local authorities are all investigating this matter.

  • Holly Holly

    They have been trying to repair those gates for weeks! I'm in the condo building right there and have to listen to the trains blowing their horns during all this!

O'Connor claims Victory?

Alderman O'Connor is bragging she was key in American Airlines eliminating the noisy MD-80 aircraft. I have news for for you, American started reducing the fleet of MD-80's in 2012. In 2013 they got rid of 39 in favor of 737-800's. Nice try.

  • Cliff in Edison Park Edison Park resident

    I was done with O'Connor when she held the town hall meetings about the flooding and had all these officials there to tell all of us flood victims that it was OUR fault that our homes flooded. She proved she had no idea what so ever on what to do or how to deal with people.

  • Question: Do we REALLY need 50 aldercreatures? Really? They are here to represent our neighborhood, but yet only a few actually get off their dead....and ring a doorbell or two to hear...I'm sorry, listen to what we have to say. To listen to our concerns, however, I have lived in...

    Question: Do we REALLY need 50 aldercreatures? Really? They are here to represent our neighborhood, but yet only a few actually get off their dead....and ring a doorbell or two to hear...I'm sorry, listen to what we have to say. To listen to our concerns, however, I have lived in Norwood Park for over 15 years and I NEVER....yes, never had my aldercreature ring my doorbell. Mary said Harlem was going to be paved to perfection. HA! The truck and cars still use it as a highway. Some speeding by at 60mph! The trucks bounce around because the sewers caps are not even with the new pavement. Our alley has pot holes in it and flood every time....yes, every time it rains. I have an example of how the city works....had a sewer in front of the house that kept flooding the street. I reported every time it did..FOR THREE YEARS! Then they Streets and San) came out and said everything was fine. No blockage. Then it literally rained the next day only to flood again! Another twelve months of calling and again S&S came out. This time I had the guy go into the sewer to find that it was blocked. Now...so far it hasn't flooded the street. My point is no one in the city that works listens to us taxpayers! NO ONE....and the airport noise??....HA! heard the FAA said they were not going to do another study because the first and only one was sufficient....and Rahm said he wasn't gonna change anything anyhow....so again...WHO IS ON OUR SIDE??.....let me take a guess.....

Water Bill

I'm not metered and received a water bill over $400. Anyone know why? Usually it's around $160, twice a year. Did I miss a notice? Appreciate any input. I'll call the city tomorrow, but I'm not looking forward to it. A bit frustrated with how 'things,' for lack of a better word, are being run around here lately. Maybe I'll just double up my concern about the plane noise and the water bill and see if the Alderman/woman answers.

  • Cliff in Edison Park Edison Park resident

    have two neighbors who do that as well as park their cars over the sidewalk so you have no choice but to walk in the street. I've called the police on both situations and they do nothing.

  • if the police come and nothing happens, call again and tell the operator that police came and left, no citation was written and the problem still exists. The second call usually gets a ticket.

At 8:00 as many as can fit will go upstairs for the meeting. If they try to limit attendance, we will pack the room anyway. (As Jac says, they need to play in our sandbox, not the other way around.) In addition, we have questions that we want to put forward and we will be demanding time to read them.

The paving of Hortense Ave.

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.

Olympia Park

Hi, Just wanted to say that whoever came up with the idea of those containers for doggy bags is a genius!!!!! Now, if we can only remind the dogs owners to pick up after their pooches!!!!!!!

  • PRW EP since 1990

    Yes, Thank you to that person! Once in a great while I find I've needed an emergency extra!

  • Cliff in Edison Park Edison Park resident

    the man walks an older yellow lab named Sandy. He's usually dressed in camo. He stocks them himself as do we. Whenever we have an over abundance of bags, we take handfuls down with us when we walk our dog. We don't feel the stocking should fall onto one person. In fact, we should ALL save our bags and stock them whenever we can.

  • PRW EP since 1990

    I agree, I hope that whomever takes a bag at one time or another thinks of restocking a few themselves so we always have an emergency supply and never takes for granted there are bags readily available in the park for their use.

internet Service Providers OTHER than AT&T??

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 been in Norwood Park for a few months now but have had spotty Comcast. About 5-6 outages lasting from 20min to a couple hours.

    Anyone else have good luck with Clear?

  • PRW EP since 1990

    We cancelled our cable service almost two years ago and couldn't be happier with the variety and amount of channels still available, but we kept AT&T for Internet at a deal rate. Surprisingly, we received a letter shortly after stating they recognize our area's service is lacking and would lowered our rate; yes, for one month, only to raise it back up a little the next - what a racket!

Alderman Election

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.

  • You can ask questions about what the candidate's platform is before signing. Those asking for signatures should know that answer. Or maybe you'll get lucky and it will be the candidate going door to door. Or ask where the campaign headquarters is and go there to sign and ask your questions directly to the candidate.

  • PRW EP since 1990

    I would rather not sign someone on the ballot I've never heard of or know, but never considered as a candidate. I say let the petitioners do their work and circle back around to some who may want to check out a potential candidate; how long and in what condition...

    I would rather not sign someone on the ballot I've never heard of or know, but never considered as a candidate. I say let the petitioners do their work and circle back around to some who may want to check out a potential candidate; how long and in what condition have they lived in their community, setting what examples, see if people are willing to tell both likes and dislikes. See how you feel about what you hear and decide for yourself based on your own concerns.
    It may do some good as early as the petition stage, so we can hope to end up with some really viable candidates running to decide upon. I've often been too dismayed over politics, but when I'm aware of issues I feel strongly about, like many people, it ignites my passion to "yea or nay". I hope we have some great choices and well-rounded candidates this election.

suspicious landscapers

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.

  • Also watch others, such as any one knocking on a neighbors door, making deliveries,cable installers, delivering flyers, etc.

  • as IC You said, get the info and call the cops that you see suspicious people around. call on anything you see and these outsiders will think twice about hanging around in the neighborhood.
