Scam Alert

Three scams are currently back on in a big way. I wrote and posted these but for some very odd reason Every Block deleted them- So I am re-posting again

1. a man (or a group of two) will come by your car-examine it for dents and claim to be able to repair it on the spot

2. A "roofer' stops by-claiming he noticed damage on your roof that can cause immediate problems and offers to repair it right then-for...

1. a man (or a group of two) will come by your car-examine it for dents and claim to be able to repair it on the spot

2. A "roofer' stops by-claiming he noticed damage on your roof that can cause immediate problems and offers to repair it right then-for a reasonable cost.

3. a duo (usually) rings your bee-and wants to show you how you are being ripped off by Com Ed and Peoples Gas. They show you copies of Com Ed and Peoples Gas "bills" and how they can beat the prices you currently pay by signing on with their third party provider.

    I meant "ring your bell"---sorry.

  • Thank you for the heads up!

    Beyond the cremonial unveiling of a statue of Paul Laurence Dunbar,what is going on with the future educational curriculum of the underserved, disadvantaged predominantly AFRICAN-AMERICAN students who attend this revitalized urban high school campus in the historic Bronzeville community?

  • Bronzeville Curmudgeon Bronzeville Conservator

    Certainly there must be some innovative writers workshops featuring the literary contributions of writers like Paul Lawrence Dunbar and other literary giants of the Black Cultural Renaissance that took place in Bronzeville! :-)

West Loop needs bodega

We need a bodega in the west loop, west of Racine and south of Washington. Currently residents in the area have precious few if any options to purchase basic foodstuffs without trekking several blocks. Walkability is key to this neighborhood's success.

    The Ashland, Ogden, Monroe area is sooo under served. I just don't understand it. Why Walgreens on Western and zilch on Ashland or Damen...grrr

  • A CVS store would be ideal. Right now you need to take public transportation or drive to get to these CVS locations:

    1. Western and Chicago Avenue
    2. Roosevelt and Racine
    3. Madison and Kedzie
    4. Odgen and Chicago Avenue
    5. Western and Division (by the Chicago Fire Department)

    I am surprise CVS did not bid/least the Madison and Ashland lot (former Kentucky Fried Chicken location).

News stand needed in west end of West Loop

The West Loop is a virtual newspaper/bookstore desert, especially when compared to other well-to-do Chicago neighborhoods. There's still a sizable population for printed newspapers from across the nation and throughout the world. We need a good news stand, west of Racine.

    Can not even buy a Tribune on the street corner or at BlueLine west of Halsted. So annoying
