Undecided voters...what would get you to vote for either Mayoral candidate?

On the fence? Any one thing that would sway your opinion?

I don't know that I'm voting for Chui or Rahm. For me, I'd reconsider Rahm if he immediately implemented a Mayoral 2-term limit; and if he convinced the aldermen to implement a 3-term-limit on Aldermen (grandfathering existing Aldermen, oh, of course), I think he'd run away with the race. So much of the trouble we're in now could've been avoided if we didn't have a life-time Mayor sitting on fixing the major issues whilst hoping for good luck to occasionally sweep them away.

  • Mayer Elementary School reviewed by a parent

    My son was on the wait list and after not hearing back from the school this past fall we figured that he probably didn't get in. Late Jan/early Feb we received a call that there was room and that he would be able to start in about two weeks if we still wanted to accept the offer. Mayer was our first choice so we decided to go for it. He has only been at the school for a little over a month now and I couldn't be more pleased. He LOVES this school and begs that he go to school even on weekends ! Mayer is not for everyone, it really all depends on your child and how they learn. Mayer is geared towards a more independent/hands on approach. It allows the child to get creative and find different solutions to questions other than the standard ABC approach. This school is also VERY organized when it comes to drop off/pick up of your child. There are many parents involved in may aspects of the school. Though the school asks for donations, they are strictly OPTIONAL , no one will treat you or your child different if you decide not to donate. The only reason I am giving this school a 4 is because my child has only been here for a little over a month.

Parking Lot Dent Repair Scam Alert

Earlier this afternoon, a couple guys appeared to be scamming an older Asian gentleman with a Lexus in the Walgreen's parking lot at Fullerton / Greenview.

Apparently, this type of scam is very common. Two individuals approach another individual and offer to repair a car dent for less than what it would cost in a bodyshop. Often times, the individual scammed goes to an ATM to withdraw cash to pay for the body work and the work done is shoddy...

Earlier this afternoon, a couple guys appeared to be scamming an older Asian gentleman with a Lexus in the Walgreen's parking lot at Fullerton / Greenview.

Apparently, this type of scam is very common. Two individuals approach another individual and offer to repair a car dent for less than what it would cost in a bodyshop. Often times, the individual scammed goes to an ATM to withdraw cash to pay for the body work and the work done is shoddy and, often times, more money is requested to pay for the job.

I called 911 to report the possible incident; however, the Asian man and the scammers seemed to have parted ways before the police arrived.

The scammers appeared to be in a silver Chevy with a license plate that looked like R1460149 (from a distance). One scammer appeared to be of Latino descent with a goatee (I cannot remember that with 100% certainty). The other gentleman was a taller, skinnier fellow who was wearing a snow hat.

  • Saw these guys in the Costco parking lot (Clybourn & Damen) on Wednesday and reported it. This time it was a green minivan.
