Internet Service Providers Logan Square

What service provider do you recommend in Logan Square? I know some are not available at my specific address like RCN. All I want is a basic internet connection. Preferrably less than 50 dollars a month. Thanks!

  • robin in WRP misanthrope

    When you get hit with a rate increase, call and ask what specials you are eligible for; if they don't have any, then you switch to someone else.

  • Yep, I call every time my promo rate goes away, be polite and say you want to cancel, the nicer the easier is it.. :)

THE PAC ATTACK

I have heard aldermanic candidates bashed in this forum for accepting PAC monies. Here's the truth, candidates scrape together money to run their campaign, especially when they are not an incumbent. Many times, PACs will go to the website, click the link and donate. Boom-a Pac has supported a candidate. Is this wag the dog behavior?

I have heard aldermanic candidates bashed in this forum for accepting PAC monies. Here's the truth, candidates scrape together money to run their campaign, especially when they are not an incumbent. Many times, PACs will go to the website, click the link and donate. Boom-a Pac has supported a candidate. Is this wag the dog behavior? Does this mean that that candidate is tethered to the PAC and will do their bidding if elected? Of course not! Anyone can donate to a fund. Let's look at the alternative-a new candidate has received a PAC contribution. This PAC is controversial. Should they spend time, energy and resources processing refunds of much needing funding to run the campaign?,... or just hope that common sense will prevail when people are perusing through the campaign contributors. UMMMM-common sense maybe? And seriously if this is the only negative thing you hear about a candidate it's probably because there is nothing else bad to say about them.

When a liquor establishment contributes to a fund does it mean the candidates an alcoholic? This is tantamount to assuming that a candidate who takes money from Walgreens is seeking prescription drugs illegally. Crazy right?!

I encourage you skeptics to go to the state board of elections candidate contributions. Look at who is accepting money from whom, and then imagine you are a conspiracy theorist and want to write bad things about the candidate based on contributors. Voila! You have lots of ammo. You could fabricate stories like crazy because, chances are, there are contributors that are not perfect,... or that have enemies, ...or that do not conform to certain ideals Don't let these forums and this bashing dictate your vote. Educate yourself and make your own decisions!! ...and if you read this-thanks for the few minutes of your time have a great day!

  • Emily, wow, I wish what you say could be so, but the sad state of reality in IL is that the incumbents protect their status completely and absolutely. The whole system is designed to keep them in power and create very high barriers for challengers.

    This is where there are no differences between Democrats or Republicans - they all want to keep themselves in office and have a never-ending list why we should ever have Campaign Limits.

  • You can take the high road or the low road where PAC donations are concerned ... problem is many incumbents have lost their way just following the Mayor's road, some of them for decades.

Sidewalk Repair

When asked if I "needed anything" by one of Ald. Mell's campaign workers a couple of weeks ago, I showed him the crumbling sidewalk on George between Kedzie and Troy. He said he'd get right on it.

When asked if I "needed anything" by one of Ald. Mell's campaign workers a couple of weeks ago, I showed him the crumbling sidewalk on George between Kedzie and Troy. He said he'd get right on it. I called Mell's office today and was told by Gina they have no record of a request from anyone. She said they'll need to contact the owner of the apt. building facing the sidewalk to pay 50% of the cost of repair, per some 50/50 city program. I hadn't heard of that program until today. It's strange to require a property owner to pay above and beyond property taxes, etc. to repair city property. I know the owner, and there's no way he'll be able to afford to pay that, nor should he have to. Notwithstanding the principle of maintaining city property, a PI/negligence lawsuit may cost the city @ $25k to settle vs. repairing the sidewalk at < $5k. That makes no sense. What are my neighbors' thoughts?

  • Ouch. Thanks for sharing.

  • Colin Bird Resident of Hermosa

    Yeah, very true, lol. They'll chop 50% off the cost if you're 65 years+ or disabled. The approximate cost to a homeowner of an average mid-block property will range from $600 to $1,200 and the city will pay the other half. The waiting list for this program fills up fast, it could take years if you go this route. Most developers who are in a rush simply pay for new sidewalks entirely out of their own pockets.

Gas or Sewer smell?

There has been construction going on around Kimball and Palmer for the past week and a half. Today we noticed a strong sent of what could be gas in our apartment. The upstairs neighbors have the smell as well. It seems to be coming from the drain in the basement. Our landlord received a message from Peoples stating that other people around the area have had similar complaints and that the smell is not gas but a combination of paint thinner and ammonia in the sewers. The fire department also came out and checked out the situation and said the same thing. Has anyone else had any issues with this smell?

  • Yes...dry water traps..pour water down it..worked for me...on;y I used buckets...

  • i had this same problem a few days ago and a few buckets of water with some concentrated odor eliminator worked for me. another trick i learned from a friend is to put boric acid around the drains to stave off oriental roaches (waterbugs).

Alderman Defends Choice of Ex-Offender to Lead Political Group

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/10/02/us/alderman-defends-choice-of-ex-offender-to-lead-political-group.html

When Alderman Joe Moreno feuded recently with the Democratic committeeman in his First Ward constituency, he decided to form what he called an “independent Democratic political organization.”
To lead the reform-themed group, called 1st Ward First, Mr. Moreno tapped someone from a category of Chicagoans who he says need support: ex-offenders.

That someone, Juan Elias, pleaded guilty to the state charge of mutilation of election materials in 1997, after a failed run for Democratic committeeman of the 26th Ward. In 1986, he was convicted on a drug charge after the police caught him with more than three pounds of marijuana.

    If they're seven and ten years old, both PAWS and Treehouse would be hesitant to spay/neuter them without getting bloodwork done first, and neither place will chip them without being fixed.

    I second the suggestion with ANY lost animal to meet the owner at a vet office so they can have it chipped on site (though not all of them will be able to afford it plus the registration fees) a good alternative may be to offer to buy them an inexpensive nylon collar and write their phone number on it with a permanent pen.

    Chicago Animal Care and Control will allow you to post flyers there for both lost and found animals, however you have to actually go down there to post them.

    Please don't judge animal control - they probably accept far more animals than you think and also euthanize far, far fewer than you think.

    Michael Moyer was looking a about a two year project and that everything in the building would open at the same time. I also heard that the lobby would be open most of the time and that to the right of the lobby would be a entrance to the Inn on the Milwaukee Ave side.

  • I do hope it's LIVE entertainment and not the stuff that brings too much noise and BASS. Did Mr Moyers discuss the sound issue? Since the Congress Theater was originally designed as a movie theater, it was never properly equipped for optimal acoustics inside and out. The interior is going to need sound proofing. I'm wondering how that will that affect the restoration process?

Kids stealing packages

Around 3:35 I saw a group of kids running north on the 2400 block of Spaulding Ave (about halfway between Fullerton and Altgeld). They ran up the stairs of a porch across the street from me, grabbed some packages that were on the stoop, and ran away down an alley. I couldn't tell if they had taken anything from more than one house.

I called 311, but was told I couldn't report it because I wasn't the victim. I'll let my neighbors know, but I just wanted to let people in the area know to be on the lookout and watch out for their packages. The kids were male and probably early to mid teens .

    aaron, saw same thing in Julia de Burgos the park just before christmas. A bunch of boxes were rummaged through, and a few boxes that had books in them were just left open to the elements. I was able to return a few boxes on the 1700 block but most items were stolen… On Friday we had a package turn up missing on Troy. The kicker is that we were home and looking for the delivery. I think that someone must have been following the delivery driver as we were both looking for the package...

    . . If I had the time I would bait this kids but sadly it really would be wasted time. I doubt I could prove anything if they did not have any items on them. It would be hilarious to hit them with a little bear spray though...

You need a plastic tub with lid that has 1/4 inch holes punched in top for air and then we tear up newspaper, throw in a little garden dirt, wet so it is like a 'rung out sponge', and put in the worms. They eat 'left over' lettuce, coffee grounds, etc (except onions, peppers, citrus). Easy VERY EASY to care for in basement or garage (some people keep them under the sink..no smell)
This is the best 'soil' you will find and excellent for seedlings. You separate the worms from the 'soil' (I can tell you how) and use the soil in your garden, house plants, etc. YOU MUST NOT put the worms in composters or soil outside as they are not native and they eat constantly and will eat all the surface plants.
If you are interested, please let me know and it will be another reason for spring to come quickly!@

spark energy update?

The other day, caught off guard, I allowed myself to switch to Spark Energy due to the persistence of two door to door salesmen. Looking at past threads on this topic, it seems lots of folks have had bad experiences, and some folks have seen reduced savings and feel it is a legit company with bad solicitation tactics.

Was I scammed? I feel like a goof for ignoring my gut. Thanks!

  • Joe

    I have saved with first energy for electricity and direct energy on gas (except Dec, Peoples would have been cheaper) Peoples gas charge changes every month. Lots of threads on this.

  • Like kittyhop says, read the receipt they gave you - you have maybe a week from the signing date during which you can cancel. Not sure of the exact time limit; it IS short. But if you do some quick research you can decide whether Spark is worth it for a year.
