In case you haven't seen this article, 7 grocers have decided against moving into the now closed Dominick's location at 71st & Jeffrey. I think it's a real shame that no one is willing to move here, but I'm sure that the unchecked rise in crime in South Shore over the past several years is the primary reason. Until we (residents, police, government) clean up the problem areas, no major business will open in the neighborhood.

Over the past month I've read about all the crime that has been happening in South Shore. Let's spend sometime posting the good in our community. Play Streets had kids outdoors playing every week for the past 5 weeks, Small Business Seminar took place on July 19th it had a huge turnout, jobs for Safe Passage, FREE Health Fair at South Shore Chamber 8/15...these are just a few things that should be flooding this site.

Mr. Willard Davis, Jr and his Asst. Tim Carr are two of worst black men better known as uncle tom. Mr. Davis has not responded to date and people gas sends out this butt kicking Tim Carr to do their dirty work. This is why the black community is going down the drain because of black butt kissers like these two who let their company come into our community and destroy and damage that which we have worked hard to upkeep. I am taking this issue to the state senate representative with an attorney who is representing me.

Well they closed another store. I guess it was because someone got shot at the 81st and exchange store. It wasn't the store's fault someone got shot. Now the same people that were shooting at each other have only 2 stores they can go to close by. Hmmm, I wonder if this will lead to them shooting at the next store.

does anyone have any ideas what's going on in South Shore about 20 police cars blew down 79th Street. It started about 11 30 or so now there are helicopters and emergency vehicles. I just wanted to know if anyone had any idea what went on down there .I am feeling really concerned for my neighborhood and it's police officers.
She even had enough nerve to as to use my drive way cause they have tickets no decent bones in their bodies. its maddening really. if they are high end people why disturb neibors and not rent a hall or something call police they never show up so you can file complaint or make them quiet it down
