Smart Meters

Recently I have had an installation of a Smart meter and while I was waiting to do a cost comparison I figured I would reach out to my neighbors to see if they had done some of this analysis on their electric bills already? I also wanted to see if there were any concerns related or incidents as early installation of these meters were known to cause fires, fines were threatened if refused, and billing issues had been shown to appear in other states.

Loud Block Party past midnight

Are block parties permitted to have live amplified outdoor bands playing past midnight in residential neighborhoods?

I'm wide awake because of the extremely loud block party going on well past midnight in Little Village right now, near Cermak and Albany. My neighborhood has had other block parties with live music. I've never heard it so loud before, and all other parties have wrapped up around 11 at the latest. I called 911 but don't expect anything to happen.

Here is part of the Obama Foundation's statement:

“We were amazed by the quality of responses to our Request for Qualifications and we are grateful to every institution that expressed interest in carrying President Obama’s legacy forward,” said Board Chair Martin Nesbitt. “These four potential partners have come the farthest in meeting our criteria and have each demonstrated a strong vision for the future Obama Presidential Library. We look forward to working with each institution to further refine their proposals over the coming months, and to presenting our recommendations to the President and First Lady early next year.”

Presidential Library

On June 16th, the Barack Obama Foundation received 13 responses to its Request for Qualifications. Since then, it appears that the various bidders have chosen to silently wait for the Foundation’s decision, due sometime this month. Unfortunately, we fell into that mindset. Apologies.
From the beginning, developing a sense of pride in this and similar communities across the country was what our efforts were all about.

On June 16th, the Barack Obama Foundation received 13 responses to its Request for Qualifications. Since then, it appears that the various bidders have chosen to silently wait for the Foundation’s decision, due sometime this month. Unfortunately, we fell into that mindset. Apologies.
From the beginning, developing a sense of pride in this and similar communities across the country was what our efforts were all about.
There is no doubt that physically, geographically and demographically, North Lawndale has the superior site and has a probable chance of winning the Library bid.
A grand Library campus built in a poor community will bring new investments and people, but what about the people here now? Without a sense of accomplishment, where is the sense of ownership? Where is the sense of pride?
North Lawndale’s site was not chosen from outside of the community. Our site submission was developed by the community. The University of Illinois did not approach us; we approached them with our fully researched site. This is the result of a community’s efforts.
When we win the Library (and we will), North Lawndale needs to know that it can say, “We did that!”
