    I'm from the west side. All I saw growing up in the 80s and 90s was the Helene Curtis plant and vacant lots up and down Madison thanks to MLK's murder.

    I am enjoying the trip down memory lane from you two guys. ☺

What A Relief !

Have you noticed that since the liquor store at 73rd & Exchange has been closed, there's a whole different atmosphere in that area, no public drinking, hanging out, open drug sales,loose squares, public urination and fights, all within 75 feet of two daycare's. I Love It!!! Now all it needs is a couple of speed bumps on 73rd st, heading west, between Coles and Exchange, to slow traffic down as it nears the daycare's. THANK YOU whoever is responsible for this.

  • @ bunnieface, a new store has opened on 79th and SS, initially, they advertised food, now it shows liquor. Haven't seen loitering yet ninja's don't hang out in the cold. Prayerfully, the summer months will not produce the same results as the previous establishment.

  • I sure hope it doesn't produce too much loitering.

Come out and Interview the Candidates of the 7th Wards Individually

Strong local leadership on the Southeast Side of Chicago will be crucial the next four years. Come out and meet the candidates individually, with an organization you can trust. Get to know each one of them better one-by-one, ask the tough questions without distractions among the candidates such as the usual ugly debates, hostile exchange, etc. Just the community and the candidate in the room. Are you looking for the best speaker or the best Alderman? Our format will give you that. http://eepurl.com/bb7Unf

    They are all democrats. No thanks.

  • Happy making better choices

    thanks for posting

  • 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.

South Shore will not get the Obama Library.

It's official the South Shore Cultural Center is officially off the table for possible Obama Presidential Library sites. What do you think?

  • I think it is ok. Having the South Shore Cultural Center free of crowd is wonderful. I found that place a great solace from the busy city and preserving that is a great idea.
    The U of C area is fine. It is close enough to South Shore that whatever...

    The U of C area is fine. It is close enough to South Shore that whatever progress it brings to Hyde Park will radiate outwards in the neighboring areas. South Shore is mainly residential, I'm happy to keep it that way. Revitalizing it means more people who contribute to community, good schools, more jobs. My bet is if that Lakeside Project can be developed and hopefully not fall through, the South side would really be a place we can feel we belong. But as of yet, let's keep doing the good that we do and build our community and each other.

  • Gwen Barnes Robinson South Shore resident, Real Estate Broker

    Thank you all for your comments. Frankly, I thought if we couldn't get a grocery store we'd be a long shot for the library. At this point, I just want it somewhere on the South Side.
