Midnight Circus was great

Took my grandson to the Midnight Circus at Grand Crossing Park on Sunday. It was great! He loved it. He sat right by the ring and now he wants to be a clown/juggler/dancer/singer. They are going to Ogden Park next. Worth the trip

Update: Jackson Park Dog Park

Added to the agility training course:
construction horse
suspended tire
cones

Many thanks to the anonymous benefactor of the bucket of fetching balls. I moved it all to the car, as balls go missing, i'll distribute them among the three Wooflawn dog parks. https://www.facebook.com/wooflawn Speaking of which, if anyone has any old toys your pup has lost interest in, please consider donating them to the dog park to give them a second life.

Driving Directions: LSD to Science Drive, go south on Columbia Drive beyond MSI's southern parking lot where you'll find the bridge to the tennis courts. Parking by the courts is free. The 'dog park' is located in the NE court enclosure. See bird's eye view => http://chicago.everyblock.com/pets/apr17-jackson-park-dog-park-6094931/photos/

Keeping a Close Eye on CPD's Glenn Evans

I'm not going to bore anyone with the details but I have (as well as many others in the 3rd District) witnessed first hand the abuses of power Commander Evans has delivered over his brief reign in Woodlawn. Now with a new commander at the helm, I'm relieved but only in part. With all the lawsuits and complaints against him, i'm afraid the CPD is going back to their old playbook, tossing him from district to district like a hot...

I'm not going to bore anyone with the details but I have (as well as many others in the 3rd District) witnessed first hand the abuses of power Commander Evans has delivered over his brief reign in Woodlawn. Now with a new commander at the helm, I'm relieved but only in part. With all the lawsuits and complaints against him, i'm afraid the CPD is going back to their old playbook, tossing him from district to district like a hot potato. If anyone knows his current tour-of-duty please let me know. I want to insure that his past follows him and catches up with him sooner then later.. As of yet, to the best of my research, he has been named a defendant in six different lawsuits over the course of his career.

Lost Cat

Our cat Roca, a grey neutered male ran out of our house this morning. We just moved to the neighbourhood, and he must be disoriented. Our house is on Harper and 56th Street. He is wearing a stripped collar with a fish shaped buckle. He is very friendly and likes to roll on the floor. If you see him, please e-mail me at holea39@gmail.com

  • Hello Valerie! I am very sorry to hear what happened to you and I thank God that you survived your ordeal. I understand that you are frightened after that experience. There are power in numbers and unless we come out as a large army,the gangs will continue to defeat us....

    Hello Valerie! I am very sorry to hear what happened to you and I thank God that you survived your ordeal. I understand that you are frightened after that experience. There are power in numbers and unless we come out as a large army,the gangs will continue to defeat us. There are ways that many of us can do to combat violence: positive loitering,( gangbangers and drug dealers stray away from blocks that have roaming eyes) attend Beat meetings to voice our complaints (I am disappointed when I see only 15 attendees at every meeting,most of whom are elderly.),call the police constantly to complain of illegal activity. Continue to reach out to the police concerning your incident so that they may take it seriously. Find out the name of the detective assigned to your case.

Reclaim Chicago! (reclaimchicago.org)

Hello everybody,

Are you tired of putting up with aldermen who don't actually do anything for their wards? Are you tired of elected officials who are "machine Democrats" and care more about pleasing Rahm Emanuel and the interests of the wealthy than the people who they were elected to represent?

The People's Lobby, a grassroots organizing network in Chicago, is doing just that. We are finding progressive candidates to run in several wards and campaigning for them to make sure...

Hello everybody,

Are you tired of putting up with aldermen who don't actually do anything for their wards? Are you tired of elected officials who are "machine Democrats" and care more about pleasing Rahm Emanuel and the interests of the wealthy than the people who they were elected to represent?

The People's Lobby, a grassroots organizing network in Chicago, is doing just that. We are finding progressive candidates to run in several wards and campaigning for them to make sure that they get elected.

In order to give citizens throughout the city an input on what issues are most important to them and what they would like to see changed in Chicago, we have created a website where you can say why you want to reclaim Chicago. All you need to do is go to reclaimchicago.org and submit some personal information and a sentence describing what you want to see changed. This only takes a few minutes, and it would be great to get some representation from Woodlawn!

Also, if you're interested in learning more about the People's Lobby and our potential candidates, or getting involved, let me know!
