Blue Star Memorial at Harlem and Avondale

To whomever restored the Blue Star plaque it looks great. I took the flag down because it was a disgrace.

60631 post Office

This post office is getting worse and worse. I went to mail a letter Monday. Even though it was simply Presidents Day all three mail boxes were overflowing as they do during the Cristmas Season. Nothing is going on that this should of happened. It appears that they didn;t pick up on Saturday. THIS IS NOT SAFE!!! People are mailing bills, sending out important information, I complain and complain. No one as of this point has listened. To add insult...

This post office is getting worse and worse. I went to mail a letter Monday. Even though it was simply Presidents Day all three mail boxes were overflowing as they do during the Cristmas Season. Nothing is going on that this should of happened. It appears that they didn;t pick up on Saturday. THIS IS NOT SAFE!!! People are mailing bills, sending out important information, I complain and complain. No one as of this point has listened. To add insult to injury today when my mail was delivered, once again, they missed the box for some of it. So now when I get my mail I not only have to check the mail box but I need to check the ground and front yard area. It is not uncommon to receive others mail tha I am at least good enough to return to the post office or proper owner. I wonder how much of my mail is in others mail boxes and not forwarded to me. I have been waiting for a $50.00 refund check for four months now that I was assured it was mailed. Have no idea where it's at. Please support our area for better postal service by filing complaints with the postal service, alderwoman, and congressman. This is really getting bad.

Potholes Everywhere

Anybody know when/if the city plans to repave streets in Norwood Park??? Some of them resemble a war zone!!!

  • Replacing is probably just a dream. You can try contacting Mary O'conner. I'd be happy if I could at least get some potholes filled.i don't see that happening either, even though I've reported many.

  • avb

    Good luck trying to get potholes filled! Some streets in Edison Park are littered with them as well. It has gotten so bad that I can't drive down my own street because of the damage it will due to my car. Hopefully car dealerships start selling tanks and humvees so I can drive down my own street again.
