    Amen!!! they're so much needs in our community. However we need to start with ourselves we need parenting skills, we need to stop making babies that we are not willing to be fully responsible for for life, we need jobs not Link, we need to be educated, we need a vision the does not rest on the backs of other people, and a plan to implement that vision. And that's just a glimpse of what we need internally. Then there's the problem of CPS, drugs and the CPD as well as poor representation by our politicians that we repeatedly elect. Thank you for the conversation unfortunately I have to go now have an amazing day and let us be the change that we want to see.

    Thanks to all for your wonderful 411 and stimulating conversation including Todd. Everyone has an opinion. One day all must meet GOD. We will meet HIM as one of HIS own by being in Christ or one who will be in torment for eternity. Now is the time to settle it. When death greets you, it's too late. Blessings.

    All together they claim that god made everything for his purpose and pleasure. When you consider everything, you have to also consider that god is one sadistic prick.

Water Main Breakage

There's a broken water main in the area. The water has been shut off since 3:00 a.m. The affected area is from Stony Island to Constance from 71st to 74th Street. The Water Department does not know how long before water service will be restored.

Winners and losers in Mayor Rahm's TIF game

This article was written in the Reader on 11/22/2013

This article was written in the Reader on 11/22/2013

It's sad to say, but many of Mayor Rahm's most loyal aldermanic supporters come from wards that get the least in the great TIF scam.
Some reformers I know are a little down in the dumps after Mayor Emanuel trounced them in last week's TIF showdown.
That is, when they tried to get the City Council to force the mayor to spend some of the millions he's got stashed in his TIF slush funds on our dirt-broke public schools, most of the aldermen buckled under pressure from the boss.
Still, I don't see last Wednesday's vote as a total loss. Think of it this way—Aldermen Scott Waguespack, Robert Fioretti, Rick Munoz, Toni Foulkes, and their progressive colleagues smoked out the mayor's loyalists, forcing them to concede that they'd rather let Emanuel squander millions than adequately fund the public schools.

So at least we know where everyone stands—the boss is first, the kids come last.

He not only strong-armed the aldermen into abandoning whatever principles they might have, but also commanded them to read from the talking points his aides conveniently distributed. Other aldermen defended the TIF program. I can understand why Alderman Burnett's so effusive about tax increment financing. One of the program's central flaws is that it favors gentrifying wards, like his, over poor ones.
Thus, the program that's intended to help the poorest of the poor neighborhoods largely benefits richer ones, like the near-west- and near-north-side communities Alderman Burnett represents. Through 2010, the city spent about $197 million in TIF dollars on various projects in the 27th Ward.

In contrast, the city spent about $7.9 million in Alderman Anthony Beale's far poorer south-side 9th Ward.

Those who got, get more. And those who don't got, get the shaft.
It's pretty sad that the mayor's most dependable TIF supporters represent the wards that fare the worst in this ongoing scam.

5th Ward Residents, Just a Reminder of the upcoming Mayoral and Aldermanic race

I don't know about anybody else, but I'm tired of the desert in South Shore.
We never got a grocery store. Walgreens after 4:00 pm, is very dangerous. Not to mention, all those empty stores along 71st. from Jeffrey to Exchange. I recall when I moved here, I thought this was such a beautiful neighborhood, What Happened?
We lost the bank, grocery and hardware stores, and several clothing stores. Well, South Shore Community, next business to leave will be Radio...

We lost the bank, grocery and hardware stores, and several clothing stores. Well, South Shore Community, next business to leave will be Radio Shack. How long will South Shore remain a food desert. Please come out and vote neighbors!! Tip for today: if you continue to do the same thing, you will get the same results every time. If what you are doing is not working or giving you the outcome you desire, change your approach. I love Hyde Park, and South Shore. It's time for some major improvements. In all honesty, Walgreens should not be allowed to continue to sell alcohol.
Tomorrow is the last day for early voting. Take a look at the old Hamilton theater. How many of you remember the Hamilton?
Have a safe and happy weekend.

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.
