So, this is the story. The Dept of Water changed the name on my account billing to my son's name without my permission or request. My name had been on the bill for about 20 years. My son's name is on the check that I use to pay this bill; and, I am guessing that this is how the Water Dept. managed to make their error.

So, this is the story. The Dept of Water changed the name on my account billing to my son's name without my permission or request. My name had been on the bill for about 20 years. My son's name is on the check that I use to pay this bill; and, I am guessing that this is how the Water Dept. managed to make their error. To get this discount, my name as owner (which I am and always have been) needs to be on the bill. So, I called the DOW and the "Canadian woman" who answered talked over me and when I asked her to stop and listen to me as I am the customer and citizen that pays her salary, she HUNG UP on me after I waited 20 minutes on hold to speak to one of the "customer" service reps. I then called Alderman Napolitano's office and I have to do the work to change the name back to mine by paperwork and proof of ownership (I have always been the owner). The Alderman couldn't call the DOW and get this done for me? So, because some less than qualified or lazy posterior's DOW EE's error, I have to prove my side of the story. PLEASE... I am sure that he can but did not. I am so disgusted right now that I could do several things that I would be arrested for, I am sure. Who else can I call/write/petition about this? I have paid property taxes for 33 years now and when it is FINALLY time to get a meager benefit (which is hard to do as white person in this city) due me, it is taking an act of congress and much of my time.

Be advised: A little birdie told me that there have been several break-ins in and around Edison and Norwood Park neighborhoods. They get in and get out quickly! Please be sue to lock your doors, whether your home or not. In the event you see anything out of the ordinary, call police. Don't hesitate, just call them. I would believe the police don't mind, because there are many who live in this neighborhood of ours and they want it safe for them and their fellow officers. We....we all must be vigilant for ourselves. The police can't do it on their own. Yes, they need our help, so lets help them and ourselves at the same time.

Last night, sometime between 8pm and 6am, someone tried to break into my detached garage in the 7000 block of West Berwyn. When I tried to enter the garage to leave for work, I found the side door lock damaged. They were unable to get in, but the lock is broken. I filed a police report but wanted to let the neighborhood know to watch out!
My niece and her family are in need of help, he is currently unemployed, they have 7 children, 4 go to Garvy, 2 in High School and 1 at home, struggling to put food on the table. He is a good painter, all around handyman. She is a great mother. If anyone is in need of painting a room, odd small jobs around the house, babysitting. They could use your help. They live in the Union Ridge area right by Garvy grade school.
