Article on Public Housing Reunions

Hello! I write for the South Side Weekly, a newsmagazine that covers arts, politics, and culture on the South Side. I'm working on a piece about people who used to live in Chicago public housing projects and still attend reunions with their former neighbors. If you attend such reunions and would be willing to do a brief interview in the next few days about your reunions and why they're important to you, please let me know!

Dangers of allowing your cat outdoors

Besides FIV(Feline Aids) FeLV is a killer feline leukemia retro virus.
FeLV is spread through saliva, sex, food, blood contact cat to cat.
NO DANGER TO HUMANS.

Fleas are another issue.

Every cat I have trapped and taken to PAWS Lurie for free s/n that had

The best way to avoid your cat getting fleas and bringing them into
your house is do not allow your cat outdoors.
The myth that a cat needs outdoor time is just that a myth and a dangerous myth.
Cars, bad people approaching your friendly cat
and torturing that cat, injuries, infection and the danger of being boarded up in an X house.
A Cat will be curious and enter an abandoned house, hear loud workmans voices enter , hide and then be boarded up and die of starvation.
Cats also seek refuge in garages and often get locked in.
3 felony cat torture incidents in one month last summer in 60621..

Englewood Votes! is a non partisan voter registration and political awareness campaign designed to increase voter turnout and educate voters in Greater Englewood.

Englewood Votes! aims to make all residents understand that voting gives our community a collective voice that will demand and work for positive changes in the neighborhood.

We have come to understand that some elected officials and political leaders pay more attention to and funnel more resources to those neighborhoods and wards with high voter turnout. We have been advised that some state lawmakers subscribe to the notion that people in Englewood don’t deserve anything because they say we don’t contribute anything to society. The campaign seeks to debunk that notion in the community, statewide and nationwide.

Englewood Votes ! always welcomes supporters, donors and neighbors to join this particular effort to educate and organize residents to create a safer and more livable environment.
