Tudor house and need a storm door contractor recommendation

Hello fellow neighbors. I need a storm door on our Tudor home on newland. Does anyone have any companies that they can recommend to install a custom storm door?

  • They have a web site so you can see the different styles they have .
    Hope they can help you.

Teenagers knocking on doors in Elmwood Park - from Roberto Clemente High School

It's 6:20 on 10/17. Our doorbell rang here in Elmwood Park and there was a sweet young gal who held up a backwards id around her neck, told me she was from Roberto Clemente high school, that she was a 'star' and was selling a subscription to the Chicago Tribune. I initially said "Roberto Clemente! That's so far away for you to be selling in this neighborhood...I lived up the street from there for six years." She looked at me...

It's 6:20 on 10/17. Our doorbell rang here in Elmwood Park and there was a sweet young gal who held up a backwards id around her neck, told me she was from Roberto Clemente high school, that she was a 'star' and was selling a subscription to the Chicago Tribune. I initially said "Roberto Clemente! That's so far away for you to be selling in this neighborhood...I lived up the street from there for six years." She looked at me blankly, and continued with her spiel. I thanked her but said I didn't read the Tribune and additionally had a high school student of my own to support. She asked me to donate to her anyway because she needed scholarship money. I said I was so sorry, but as I mentioned, I had a high school student of my own who was required to raise money for her school and I donated there, etc...so I unfortunately wasn't going to be able to help. Her sweet smile faded to a glare as she explained one more time that she needed me to give her money. I explained one last time that I wasn't going to be able to help her but wished her luck and shut the door. I stood in the window and watched her leave (while my own high schooler chided me for being a weirdo) because something about the way our interaction ended left me feeling uncomfortable. I'm unsure if it's because she rang our doorbell and then I felt like she became demanding during our interaction, or if it's because she just rang our doorbell in general and not that many people do anymore, unannounced. I'm putting it on here because I have to admit that I do think it's a bit strange that students from Roberto Clemente are selling newspapers in Elmwood Park, I would expect students from Elmwood Park or Proviso to ring our doorbell...but Roberto Clemente? That seems odd to me...I didn't look at her credentials to check their validity, I knew from the moment she began speaking I wasn't giving her money.

  • If you look at the charter school website I believe I saw the charter school on Natchez near Grace is called Roberto Clemente charter school

  • If you where not expecting anyone than why even answer the door at all. Next time do not even open the door.

Shots fired/Drine-by

There was a drive-by shooting at George and Sayre 18OCT16 around 9PM. A white car shot 6-8 (.45 cal) times at the house on the north/west corner. It also sounded like someone returned fire at the car. CPD is collecting the shell casings and doing a report.

  • Craig Born and raised in the city.

    @ neighborhood granny, They are gangs originally from the Humboldt Park area. Imperial Gangster use pink and black. Maniac Latin Disciple use black and baby blue as colors.

  • I knew the guys hanging out at that house all summer were trouble. Just didn't realize how MUCH trouble they would bring to this neighborhood.

Anyway..
3 weeks later my landlord called me saying that elmwood park told him im.not allowed to have bird feeder at al because it will bring disease .
I went to school for zoonotic diseases and i been dealing with animals my whole life.
So my landlord thought he is talking to someone that has no education.
Anyway i want to continue feeding the birds ..specially now that the winter is coming.
So if anybody knows the ordinance of this stupid village plese let me know.
Thank u

  • HoneyBadger resident

    Pigeons do make a mess and if I was renting to you, the last thing I'd want to deal with is pigeon poop. I applaud, however, your wanting to feed birds in general over the winter when their food sources become scarce. I'd suggest you contact the Village Hall or PD who can cite the ordinance as well as the reason for it.

  • Yes u are right they do make a mess.
    I don't mind cleaning after them..
    I was scaring them away from roosting last couple of days and the finally arent sleeping on my door steps.
    I love pigeons and all other birds .
    They can come and eat any time they want but they can't sleep on my door steps.
    If I was renting my property I would mind pigeons roosting on it because my tenant is feeding them ..despite my love for them..
