RESTORATION OF LAWNS (torn apart resultant from gas line/pipe project)

Alderwoman Hairston nor the contracting companies offer any answers regarding the restoration of lawns which were torn apart (down to the soil) as a result of the overly intrusive, ridiculously slothful, unsightly project. Might anyone have any information about if or when the lawns will be restored to, again, help beautify South Shore...and to maintain our land values (making us , at least, as whole as we were prior to the gas line/pipe intrusion).

    Call People's Gas. They added sod to the homes on my block, including my own, last summer.

  • Happy making better choices

    I just wondered the same thing

7th Ward Aldermanic Candidates Debate

Meet the candidates for alderman in the 7th ward: http://ow.ly/HrYAC

  • Gigi Calumet Heights

    I really wish that Calumet Heights was not in the same ward with South Shore and Jeffrey Manor. We don't share a lot of same the issues that those areas have and because of that, we get very little attention. I went to the appointed alderman about an issue that was going on in Calumet Heights and her answer was "I thought it was nice around there" and I got no action from her.

  • I have not commented in awhile but I felt compelled to after observing the aldermanic debate. The one encounter that I had with Ms. Holmes she seemed to be a tad bit rude and standoffish. This was during time when she was replacing sandy Jackson. This encounter showed me that she clearly did not want my vote and I will keep that inmind during this election.

Missing 7-year-old girl found safe in South Shore

...reunited with her family Friday morning. Officers found Kendra Broughton safe in an apartment near 73rd Street and South Shore Drive, about two blocks from her school. Police said the second grader apparently went there to...

  • Dr. Magic Stuck In South Shore Since 2011

    I'm glad she's been found safe.

    However I am willing to bet she's gonna get a whooping for this.

  • The other child's parent(s) need a whooping. How could they allow her to spend the night at their house without first getting permission from her mother?

  • Dr. Magic Stuck In South Shore Since 2011

    I agree completely they were totally out of line for that.

South Shore Tracks Garbage

Now that all the snow is gone, the garbage on the South Shore tracks is visible again. No doubt this is garbage I made a comment about last year plus new garbage. Stop by your Alderman's Office and let them know all the garbage makes our neighborhood look bad. They should have the City clean it up or hold Metra accountable for cleaning it up.
