After School homework help needed

I am looking for after school homework help for my 2 sons, aged 10 & 11. I am very flexible on which days and on the number of days, a couple of days a week would be great. This is a great opportunity for a high school student looking to make a little cash!

  • The Chicago libraries offer homework help. Just give them a call! It might be a new thing this year. I got an email from them about it

  • My son is interested in tutoring. He is a high honors sophomore at Northside Prep and has had experience volunteering as a teacher's aid to kids in grades K-3rd this past summer. His best times available would be Tues and Thurs after school, but some weeks may be different than others due to his schedule. If we can work this out, that would be great. Please let us know how to reach you via phone or e-mail.

  • you can email me at nboggisme@gmail.com. Thanks!

I-90 East entrances blocked

Why are they blocking the entrances in I-90? First one was blocked after Cumberland and now Harlem entrance is blocked by another police car. Just saw a black SUV and police cars whizzing by, is the president in town??

  • joanie Resident of Jefferson Park

    Newspapers reported that Vice President Joe Biden was in town yesterday.

  • O ya. One of those politicians who says he is touch with all of us. If he wants to be in touch' he should sit in traffic like all of us. No special "get out of the way, I'm here' you PEOPLE can wait, I don't care if your late"

  • joanie Resident of Jefferson Park

    I C You, I'm assuming that you were born after 1980 or you would see the need to protect the vice president. During my lifetime President John F. Kennedy and his brother Senator Robert F. Kennedy were assassinated. President Gerald R. Ford was shot at twice and President Ronald Reagan...

    I C You, I'm assuming that you were born after 1980 or you would see the need to protect the vice president. During my lifetime President John F. Kennedy and his brother Senator Robert F. Kennedy were assassinated. President Gerald R. Ford was shot at twice and President Ronald Reagan was shot and wounded.

    The vice president is likely a high value target for terrorists and other misfits seeking 15 minutes of fame. He's entitled to secret service and special protection given his duly elected second in command executive branch position.

Airplane Noise

Why would you move in proximity to one of the nation's busiest airports and then complain about airplane noise? I constantly hear and read these complaints. How about just moving out to the country?

  • cbuzz lifelong resident

    I've been here sense 1958, this is the worst it's ever been.

  • smartypants LifeLongCityGirl

    @everyone. I have also lived in this city for more years than I care to name and, yes, there has always been airplane noise but there has been a huge increase since this last summer. I only started asking neighbors if they've noticed anything because I was thinking that maybe...

    @everyone. I have also lived in this city for more years than I care to name and, yes, there has always been airplane noise but there has been a huge increase since this last summer. I only started asking neighbors if they've noticed anything because I was thinking that maybe with old age I was just becoming more annoyed...But, no, there is an organization called FAiR (fairchicago.org) that talks specifically about the increase in plane traffic, lower approaches, longer hours, etc. Check it out.
    Now when we sit outside to watch our kids play we cannot hear one another speak when the planes fly over...and last night we counted 1 very low flying jumbo jet every 2 minutes for the hour that we tried to sit out. We can only as of the last few months hear the planes so loudly (with our house rumbling) from inside with all of our windows closed. We have good windows. Also this is my first experience having friends over who have asked, "Geeze, are there always this many planes so low and loud over your house?" No, the last 8 years no one ever asked this. Also, this constant helicopter traffic is new, as well.

Gutter cleaners

Hello,

I live in Oriole park. Any suggestions on a reasonable gutter cleaner.

  • Claudia Cosa Linda 21 yr Edison Park resident

    Nick's All American Landscaping
    Phone: 630 893 5296 - not sure if they are reasonable (for gutter cleaning) but they are reliable- they've cut our lawn for years.

  • We used this company a couple of months ago and were really happy with them. We had never heard of them before but they were professional, prompt, efficient and affordable. We also contacted Gutter Monkeys, but we ended up choosing Bubbles. Good luck : ) http://www.bubbleswindowcleaning.com/

  • I've used Celtic Gutter Cleaning for years, they are reasonable and do a great job. Its owned by a fireman who lives in the area and does all the work himself I think. 8473613062 is the number I have.

OP area crime

Appears to be an up tick in area crime above and beyond the typical garage break in or minor property damage.
We need to be on the watch and report suspicious activity not only to police, but also this site so everyone can be informed as to what to watch for and what areas are having occurrences. Warmer weather is here, so street activity will be on the rise.
Comments and additional info on EB posted crimes is also helpful, being that info posted by EB is vague.

  • cbuzz lifelong resident

    The alderman and her office are useless

  • I agree. Good to post all incidents here. It's the only place we get this kind of news. The police "CLEAR PATH" site is rather useless. We have to alert each other here. People on this site are concerned and interested. It is surprising how many neighbors are clueless and don't care if it's not in literally in their back yard.

Overreacting?

I live on the 5600 block of oketo and the other night about 11:30 pm we heard knocking on our basement window followed by our doorbell ringing. When we asked who it was, a girl said it was a friend and that her name was Samantha. She wouldn't say who she was looking for and when we told her we don't know anyone by that name she finally left. The next night on the news we saw a report of home burglaries that happened this way off of the 290 highway in Elmhurst.

  • I immediately thought of the movie, "The Strangers" with Liv Tyler. A girl knocking on a door asking if Samantha was home. I trust no one these days. Call 911, or grab your firearm.

  • good for you NPRN

Low flying jets

A ridiculously loud jet flew just flew over my house today at 2:15 pm. I'm right off the Norwood Circle which isn't the usual path for planes. It was probably flying too low based on how much my windows shook. Did my part by reporting it online at http://www.flychicago.com/OHare/EN/AboutUs/NoiseManagement/NoiseComplaints/Pages/Noise-Complaints.aspx.
