Back Gates Open

Just a heads up. When my husband left for work early this morning, mostly everyone's back gate on the 5600-5700 block of Pensacola were pushed open. Ours even has a lock on it from the inside. There was also a pitbull with a collar walking down the alley by itself. Please be aware and look out for eachother...

    @doyleportage,

    my neighbor 2 houses down had a short gate and I was always after him to lock it, he had issues with people running through the yard in the middle of the night and sometimes during the afternoon, he then started to lock it with a chain and lock and it cut down on the instances a lot. any deterrent helps, and if you don't feel that having a short locked gate is sufficient, you may consider investing in a more considerable gate soon, instead of taking the chance of something happening and buying a new gate after something happens.

    like the example of when I was putting 3 locks on my garage door, my neighbor asked me. do you think that is a little overkill? I told them I would rather put 3 locks on before someone breaks into my garage instead of putting 3 locks on my garage after someone breaks in.

    maybe if more gates were locked, it would reduce property crimes in the area, or at least slow bad guys down.

went for a walk and ran into this cat, who appeared to belong to one of the houses on the corner of Eddy and Linder. Any idea who his humans are? Had to get back to work, but if he's still out there in an hour or so and I don't get any leads, I'll try to grab him for the night. thanks.

I've always wanted to try the place since they opened. Been by City News (great coffee) and tried the Perk. next to the Patio theater (good coffee). But, jeez went in Portage Grounds just now, got two cup's of coffee to go. Paid $6.01 for medium size cups, they wouldn't let us slide on the penny. The poor girl had to dip into her personal monies to give us 99 cents change for a dollar? And after all that, the coffee is "Horrible"! It tastes like a cross between Chase and Sanborn and VIA brewd over old coffee grounds. Terrible after taste. I don't think they know how too brew. Save your money!!

  • Sorry for the confusion. Lets keep it simple, one mans opinion, their coffee sucks!

  • Why mention this to Portage Grounds owner so they can figure out a solution (change brands)? Since you're a regular coffee drinker, others may feel the same but not want to speak up.

Organic Gardening

If you currently have an organic garden, or you would like to have an organic garden, I would like to offer my assistance. I can help you in creating an organic vegetable and/or herb garden or I can help you tend to a garden you already have. My name is Jose Bautista and my plan is to work in many gardens over the summer. No matter the type of urban farming you have/want: container plants, raised beds, or in-ground, I want to work in it all. If you might be interested please contact me and we can discuss this further. Have a good one.

Chicago Tabernacle...Remember them.

They were the one who wanted to convert the Portage Theater into a church. Well they started construction on the old BelPark Theater at Cicero and Belmont for their new home. Was the Golden Tiara Bingo Hall is its most recent tenant.

Some awesome pics of what was discovered when they removed the dropped ceilings from the Bingo Hall.

A promotional video from the church about their new home.

I am glad they never bought the Portage Theater, though many question the new ownership/management. The Portage Theater needs to be an entertainment venue.

    No Portage Porker, I missed Fergie. But I did stand in line in front of Colonial Bank when it was by School St. and Central Ave to meet Ron Santo and receive a genuine Ron Santo bat from him along with an autographed picture. I still have the bat.Not sure if I have the picture anymore.

    Here's a link to the latest 2 videos of the Bel-Park/Golden Tiara conversion to the Chicago Tabernacle Church:

On top of that, we gained a multitude of new customers which more than made up for the lost ones. Together, both groups ensured that we would see this day.
I honestly didn't think I would see it.
We've had some bumps along the way, but we persevered and our customers kept us encouraged with their continued support. I stand behind my past statement of...
"WE DID NOT BUILD THIS SHOP, OUR CUSTOMERS DID".
The Six Corners Association and the alderman's office were also pivotal in this shops continued growth. They welcomed us and put the word out, telling the neighborhood that we are here.
All this has been such roller coaster... ups and downs, bad weeks and good weeks... They all add up to this. We learned so much about running a business and even more about what makes our customers happy. It's a never ending process and we still have many changes to make and many more things to learn. But with our customers and our communities continued support, we will continue to flourish and be here to serve you for many more years.
From the bottom of our hearts...

Car Towed

It may seem like common sense but I parked in the new Bank of America lot and went to Chipotle. When I came out my car was gone. $219 later I had it back but not before having to drive to lakeview. Lesson learned but for the rest of you keep in mind they are scouting the lots.

I talked to Chipotle and they said you are allowed to park in the lot directly across from them. No other though.

"After receiving feedback from the community around Schurz High School, we have decided to remove the complete closure of Waveland Avenue from consideration for the Schurz field improvement plan. While we're disappointed that the plan is now on hold, we're proud that we've followed this open and democratic process, and that we're acting in accordance with the wishes of the community.

"The community is united in the goal of improving Schurz field and the school in general, and while the complete closure of Waveland has proven contentious, we are certain that together we can make the improvements necessary to move Schurz in the right direction both for students and the community."

Please join your neighbors for a community discussion of a proposed redevelopment of 4901 W. Irving Park. The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, March 11, at 6:30 pm, in the Las Tablas banquet space at 4920 W. Irving Park.

The owners of the site are offering a plan to renovate the existing 50,000-square-foot building to accommodate several new businesses, and the theater on the second floor would be renovated for community and non-profit use.

So far, owners have a signed lease for a Retro Fitness at the site. Additionally, owners have letters of intent from and are working on finalized leases with Starbucks and Aldi's. There are also discussions with a Culvers franchisee.

The renovated building will also have 14,000 square feet of additional retail space and 12,000 square feet of office space which is being marketed for medical and non-profit uses.

In order to preserve the theater for community and non-profit use, the owners are requesting $2.5 million in TIF assistance. Additionally, the owners need a zoning change from RS-3 to B1-1 for the parking lot behind the building.

This proposed project falls into the mission of the Six Corners Master Plan. The plan is driven by input from residents, businesses, and land owners, and was adopted by the Chicago Plan Commission in August 2013.

To learn more, ask questions, and join the discussion, please come to the community meeting. If you have any other questions, give my office a call at (773) 286-4545.

They specialize in airy fiction, rife with Shakespearean insult. who can forget when King Lear's Earl of Kent said to the lowly Garrido: ""Thou art a base, proud, shallow, beggarly, three-suited, hundred-pound, filthy worsted-stocking knave; a lily-liver'd, action-taking, whoreson, glass-gazing, superserviceable, finical rogue; one-trunk-inheriting slave; one that wouldst be a bawd in way".

North side

Not saying there wouldn't also be representatives in a city council but I think this type of setup could serve us better in terms of someone taking into account the big picture of each borough.

South side
Far South side
Southwest side

Not saying there wouldn't also be representatives in a city council but I think this type of setup could serve us better in terms of someone taking into account the big picture of each borough.

For example, I am thinking about the issue of the change in O'Hare flight paths and the impact it has had on the Northwest side wards. The aldermen in the affected wards represent smaller constituencies, a borough president who represented more people could have advocated more forcefully for the decisionmakers to consider that this change would make a large swath of the Northwest side housing stock less desirable and would affect housing values and quality of life. Just an example, I don't want this to be a discussion of that issue.

From Wikipedia:

"A borough president (informally BP, or beep in slang) is an elective office in each of the five boroughs of New York City. Borough Presidents currently have little real power within the New York City government. Instead they generally serve as ceremonial leaders who advocate for their boroughs on key issues.

Borough Presidents advise the Mayor, comment on all land-use items in their borough, advocate borough needs in the annual municipal budget process, appoint Community Boards, chair the Borough Boards, and serve as ex officio members of various boards and committees. They generally act as advocates of their boroughs at the mayoral agencies, the city council, the New York State government, public corporations and private businesses."

A good toilet

We are updating our bathroom and need suggestions of a good toilet to buy. Landloard won't do it but giving us a $200 budget to do it ourselves. So basically looking for one that works well and also not too expensive. I don't want to buy one that clogs all the time or needs to be flushed twice. Got one like that now!! Have any of you bought a new one that works well. Please let me know what it is. Thanks!
