    This is really the best place to go with pothole/graffiti/etc info as it is put into the system and you can receive texts on your phone when the report is completed "closed". I reported graffiti this week, and the alert came the next day that the graffiti was removed already (and it was....I checked:)

Rocky + Luella

Hey everyone,
Just wanted to let the neighbors know that my good friend and I are opening a clothing store in the neighborhood very soon. We're planning to open our doors mid-September. The store is called Rocky and Luella and we'll have men's and women's apparel as well as some accessories, bags, etc. We're really excited about bringing some retail to Logan and hopefully everyone in the area enjoys it.

For the past month we've been collecting some additional contributions for the store opening. We're just a two-person operation so we don't have any huge investors behind us and every little donation helps.

There's about 48 hours left to donate if anyone is interested in supporting us :)

One of the perks is an invite to the opening party, which should be a lot of fun!

    I don't know anything about this particular day care but I do have some knowledge about how difficult it is to open a commercial daycare.

    this city can make you wait forever for inspections. I know of at least two groups in the city that have attempted to open commercial daycares into different neighborhoods and actually after 6 months of paying all the bills and signing on clients with promises and never being able to open due to delays with the city even though they had passed all state licensing required ended up completely broke and having to refund and disappoint all of their prospective clients.

    my primary point here is that just because a commercial daycare takes some time to open don't necessarily take that as a bad sign. If you're interested in the place or like the location it would still be worth your time to interview

    I'm the Director at Willow Tree Child Care and I would love to answer your question. :)

    Childish Pursuit you are correct. That's awesome you have so much knowledge about the day care business. Child care is a very difficult business to open because we deal with children. We needed to remodel the place so everything was up to date with all the new technology and equipment that the City and State asked for. Day Care Iicense is a very slow and delicate process in order to make the facility a safe environment for children, families, and teachers to attend. The City and State tried their best to move the process along but they had to deal with the staff shortage on both their end. Other than the waiting game, there was nothing that was wrong with the facility or our paperwork. I think that is a very good question and I'm glad you asked.

    Thank you so much for your interest with Willow Tree Child Care and you can call the center at (773) 360-7816 for any further questions.

Construction at the Corner of Talman & Medill?

Anyone know what's happening here? It's been vacant so long, I'm surprised to see it all torn up now. A contractor once told me that the soil was contaminated from the factory on the same block and that's why it wasn't developed. For reference, this is across the street from Goethe School. My curiosity is piqued... Thanks in advance for any info!

I asked to photocopy some of his company's information, so I could look at it more carefully. He said it was the private property of his company, and wouldn't allow me to copy any of it. I asked if he had any material to give me that I could look over, and he said he did not.

A few years ago I was slammed by someone coming to my door about energy companies, etc. As a result, I am leery, so I told this man that I would contact Citizens' Utility Board first, and then look into his company based on their opinion.

I emailed CUB about Direct Energy, and am awaiting a response. I will post the answer from CUB as soon as I hear what they have to say.

Thanks.

    we're going to have to agree to disagree, kate.

    eons ago i was a fanatically social and fiscal liberal who truly believed the disadvantaged could be raised up with a helping hand and that crime could be eradicated if we had mercy on criminals and led them to rehabilitation. i read the works of marx and lenin ... and alinsky, looking for hope but eventually saw through their empty, manipulative, failed philosophies.

    i have seen 40-50 years of the failure of the liberal approach, the failure of protocols to treat, not punish, the criminal, to give away money to those who will not work.

    i quit believing in that BS a long, long time ago. i grew up.

    i no longer view crime, welfare, the economy, social policy, domestic and national policy, national defense, or much of anything else through the liberal kaleidoscope.

    prison IS a deterrent ... for as long as the incarceration lasts. they come out, re-crime, return to prison. more deterrence. criminals come out, re-crime, die in the attempt. oh well, more deterrence.

    i am an attorney and licensed private investigator. i am certified to, and do, train people to accurately shoot a firearm until an imminent threat on their life is stopped.

    i believe that Themis holds the scales of justice in her left hand and the sword in her right for a reason. what is that reason? she is right-handed.

    prostitutes fund pimps who fund groups that buy and sell drugs on a scale you cannot imagine, engage in sex trafficking, kill to protect their area and sales and secrets, buy sell and use illegal weapons. the whole money chain is toxic and corrupt - from the street to the kingpin.

    someone very close to me was once saved from death by a coven of hookers, taken in by them while dying. the person survived and went to prison - rightly so. i, in turn, owe my life to that person.

    so i do not hate prostitutes. my position is not ad hominem. my stance is pro law, pro safety.

    so yes, absolutely. ENFORCE THE LAW. ZERO TOLERANCE FOR CRIME.

    Y'all are presuming a lot about folks you don't even know. I've known sex workers in this city, and while some of their stories were tragic and some of them were empowering, none of them were kidnapped or coerced into doing it. That's not to say that there *aren't* sex workers out there who are in that situation; this is only to say that none of us know sh*t about their backgrounds or choices, so let's not fly off the handle talking about cutting off the drug-addled dragon's tails or whatever other sort of lame analogies for crime that we can come up with.

    Gil, you haven't seen 40-50 years of a liberal failure. You've seen 40-50 years of a bipartisan failure to actually cooperate and work towards long-term and sustainable government solutions. But hey, I probably shouldn't expect too much from anyone who speaks of viewing the world merely through a "liberal" or "conservative" lens.

    I thought that there was a code among graffiti artists to not deface major graffiti art that goes beyond just tagging. I think that this outdoor murals could be classified as graffiti art because of the materials and style of the work crosses over into graffiti art. Even if it isn't the greatest mural that anyone has ever seen, it was done with the help of the community and children. What was done to it was so disrespectful and selfish. I have a real problem with taggers. I don't consider them artists. They are just marking territory, thinking this makes them important, but instead it just makes them idiots, not artists. They are wannabes that will never be. It takes talent to be a graffiti artist. Taggers have no talent, and think too highly of themselves. They disrespect property and real artists. They think only of themselves.

    The CTA advertised a mural project and held an open call with voting for a wide list of stations in the past, but not this one. Is Logan Square not deserving of such regard from a neighborhood bursting at the seams with artists?

    You're right, I am envious and I would have loved to have pitched a proposal, but I didn't know it was an option nor did I (and still don't) know how to go about it. Some research will have to be done because it seems a lot of people find the mural an eyesore. You should see the comment thread on the original article. I think its only fair to open the floodgates to proposals and collaborations for when this 2 year tenure is complete.

    The blue and yellow mural was iconic - "a person or thing regarded as a representative symbol of something" - and well known. It was simplistic and stereotypical, but at least it had a history and story that involved Logan Square. Even Chicago Picasso was met with disgust and controversy, but now has become an icon of the city. It would be impossible to move to another location, as it created for that space. The same with Calder's Flamingo. But this isn't about sculptures from famous artists; this is a discussion on a wall painted for advertisement. Everyone has a right to their opinion and definition of art, and a right to voice it when forced to stare at it daily.

    I agree with Keith - anyone who creates a public mural should expect graffiti. The artist and gallery took precautions and sealed the mural, thus not letting it get "destroyed" as the article suggested. That's what sparked all of this. The mural is fine.

This is why i firmly believe politics and private business needs to remain separate. I have been following this situation closely. As a longtime resident I wasn't overly thrilled a bar was replacing provenance. We need locally sourced retail in our neighborhood, as this helps grow the core of what we are all about. I have shopped and supported provenance for over 6 years and was very upset they were leaving their space. I attended a community meeting a few weeks back and was completely surprised by what I heard. Most importantly, these were 3 local residents I.e. small business owners. They planned to keep a retail component w/ their business model, adding produce also & plans to expand to a full on wine/packaged goods & retail component in the building. This wasn't just a bar as what I read on here and provenances FB page. I was very disappointed to find out though that provenance, who started this campaign to stay in the spot via reaching out to the alderman, is now playing dirty pool.

The owners of provenance have quietly spread the word they may be staying. It appears they are threatening to remain in the space unless they are compensated by the building owner in an effort to block the new owners from buying the building. Was this the advice of the alderman interactions? To play the role of poor me then threaten to squat to block a sell of the building? Did the building owner or new owner do something illegal here by giving them 60 days notice to vacate after not agreeing to extend their lease per Provenances FB page? If this is true, Shame on you Provenance for rallying support of our neighborhood, then trying to extort payment because apparently it's only your right to do business in the space.

Signed,
a very disappointed FORMER customer.

Police are searching for a woman who went missing Thursday from the Logan Square neighborhood on the Northwest Side.

Guadulupe Millin, 59, was upset when she left her home in the 3600 block of West Diversey, and has not contacted her family since, according to a missing person alert from Chicago Police.

Millin is described as a 5-foot-3, 160-pound Hispanic woman with brown eyes, brown and gray hair, and a fair complexion. She was last seen wearing a dark brown blouse, blue jeans and sandals, police said.

    I have lived in Avondale/Logan square area for more than a decade, and although the homeless camp is unsightly and sometimes smelly I pass through that underpass on a daily basis and have never had a problem with the homeless people who stay there. On at least three separate occasions I have had conversations with some of them. I now realize they don't want to be there any more than we want them there. I was present last week when the city came and removed their belongings once again, It was heart wrenching to see the one female who stays there literally crying because she lost the last of everything she owned once again. It is very sad. I tried to put myself in her shoes. It is hard for me to understand how or why people live this way, or why some people CHOOSE to live this way. I honestly don't believe that this underpass will ever be free of the homeless. Maybe if we help them, hire them or just try to come to some kind of understanding with them we can all live with the situation, after all they have to sleep somewhere

Can anyone give me a referral for quality and affordable home cleaning service? Recently moved here. I've tried a couple of larger companies (manic maids and merry maids) and not only they are overpriced but cleaning quality is subpar. Suggestions are much appreciated!

  • AMG

    Try doing a search on this site. It's been asked many times and our neighbors have given some great suggestions.

    good luck!

  • Grace Housekeeper

    I have many years of experience and many long time clients who would gladly provide referrals. I can provide you with a free estimate at your preferred date and time. Please feel free to call me at 773-858-0926

    We use this group for our 2 bed 2 bath and 3 shedding dogs. Always get 2 ladies and we always have had excellent communication with the owner. He has come by a few times to check on their work. Very nice. Average price. Far above average cleaning.

Sawyer/wrightwood street lights out STILL??

Okay maybe someone posted about this already. It's been I feel a couple weeks now that the street lights have been out on Sawyer between Atlgeld and Wrightwood. Now I don't come home late at night often but when I do I certainly don't feel safe not being able to have a well lit safe street to park and walk on. I already called the aldermans about this. Anyone hear anything????

  • C. M. D. Avondale Triangle resident

    Call your alderman. With I'd usual stunning foresight, the city did not hook 311 directly into Streets and Sanitation (the people who change streeights, fill potholes, paint over graffiti...) and it takes quite a while for 311 to get their paperwork over to S&S. Your alderman, however, can dispatch a S&S crew immediately to handle the issue.

  • I put in a 311 request but when I go to check the status it says the ticket doesn't exist. =\

    They are out beyond Altgeld-Wrightwood as well, at least 2400-2600 and possibly further south, I didn't wander around in the dark to check.

Anyone tried out Logan Square Fitness yet?

Just wondered what the overall vibe is, if it gets packed at certain hours, etc. Has anyone joined - what do you think?

  • I agree with everyone else, its never very crowded and the guy at the front desk is always really nice. The classes are free too, I've taken the yoga and x-fit class' and both are great, and the instructors are nice too. I only live two blocks away so I've never used the locker rooms, but I don't have any complaints, and its going to get bigger. They're going to open a much larger class area as well.

  • I have been a member for a couple of months and really like the convenience of the location. They offer month-to-month memberships at $39 per month (which is what I'm doing), but you can also sign up for a year at $29 per month OR 3 and 6 month memberships,...

    I have been a member for a couple of months and really like the convenience of the location. They offer month-to-month memberships at $39 per month (which is what I'm doing), but you can also sign up for a year at $29 per month OR 3 and 6 month memberships, which they are offering until the end of October (not sure how the price works out for those). I like the month to month option, especially since I had no idea if I would like it/want to stay when I first signed up. I have done a bunch of the regularly scheduled yoga classes, which are good. I have also gone to some early-morning (6:30am) pop-up yoga classes, which were great but only had 2 or 3 people. I hope they add regular morning yoga classes, but I have been told by the guy at the front desk that they are planning to push back evening classes and add additional class times as well (they said Sept. 23rd is the planned date for this, but they are notoriously bad about keeping their promises in terms of dates--see: Grand Opening).

    TL;DR Definitely worth it to join, especially if you live very close.

Physician

Anyone know of a good physician that treats anxiety. My physician left to another state and my therapist is booked until December.

  • robin in WRP misanthrope

    Your primary care doctor should be able to refer you to a specialist

  • Tom G Living in Avondale since 1994

    Any physician can prescribe anti-anxiety meds for you for the short term and will probably refer you to a psychiatrist, which is the kind of physician that treats anxiety. If you just want a compassionate physician who has dealt with people with anxiety, I will recommend Dr. Paul Abbo. Look him up online. He might even refer you to a therapist who can fill in until yours returns. In any case, keep looking and don't give up. My prayers are with you.

  • MakeChicagoSafe Please keep our Chicago Safe

    Thanks so much Tom G I'll look him up...

Craig Woods?

If anyone knows someone named Craig Woods, please PM me. I live near Logan and California and for a week now have had two packages sitting at the entrance to my apartment building addressed to Craig Woods. There are only five units in this building and no one by that name has lived here in the six years I have been at this address. (Let's also take a moment to reflect on the fact that there have been two packages sitting outside our door for over a week and they haven't been stolen...WHAT?!?!)

  • I got my packages! They were misplaced BABY SHOWER REGISTRY gifts sent up the street. Thanks all!

  • thanks for the update - glad you got your packages.
