New Aldi and Costco gas station at Melvina and Touhy

An Aldi is being built along with the Costco gas station at Melvina and Touhy. This will exponentially cause a greater Niles’ generated traffic impact on North Edgebrook/Wildwood as outlined in the letters below and cause a greater impact on North Edgebrook/Wildwood streets that are still needing repair from last winter. History is repeating itself as this is exactly what happened 20 years ago when Target first went in, North Edgebrook residents where kept in the dark by Niles. It is time for Chicago to stop being Niles’ fool.

Good, affordable mowing service?

Any recommendations on a good, affordable lawn-cutting service? Locally-based would be great but not required. Many thanks.

    Hi. I don't know your idea of "affordable," but a lot of people in the Edgebrook-Sauganash area use Williams Landscaping. I have used them for 10 years, without any issues. They show up same day, same time every week to cut the grass. I also have had them do several yard projects, and they did a good job each time. The business is based near Peterson and Pulaski. The website is williamslandscaping.com. Phone: 773-725-4798. Craig Williams is the owner.

    An exhibition of veterans' artwork that explores the relationship between Surrealism and the experience of war.

    SURREALISM & WAR

    Opening: Memorial Day, May 26, 2014 | 10AM - 5PM
    11AM Color Guard
    2PM Artist Talk

    Exhibition Run: May 26, 2014 - November 1, 2014
    Artists: William Dugan, Stan Gillett, Michael Helbing, David Keefe, Jim Leedy, Robynn Murray, Giuseppe Pellicano, Ehren Tool, Richard Yohnka, and many more.

    Surrealism is an attempt to revolt against the inherent contradictions of a society ruled by rational thought while dominated by war and oppression. Surrealism seeks expression of thought in the absence of all control exercised by reason and free of aesthetic and moral preoccupation. It is this same absence of control exercised by reason that many combat veterans seek to explore and express after their experiences in war. SURREALISM & WAR features the artwork of nine veteran artists that intentionally and unintentionally use and explore Surrealist processes and concepts.

    Of note, SURREALISM & WAR includes the seminal work, The Earth Lies Screaming, by Jim Leedy, a Korean War veteran who was one of only two Americans invited to participate in the largest Surrealist exhibition ever assembled at the Retretti Art Center, Finland, an exhibition that began with Miro, Dali, and DuChamp, and culminated with several works by Mr. Leedy.
