Feedback on a home improvement / construction company: People's Choice

Probably like several buildings post this brutal winter, our Condo Association is faced with many needed expensive and expansive roof repairs. We have vetted 2 of our bidders with personal referrals, but we were hoping to get feedback on our 3rd one, "People's Choice Home Improvement Company". Anybody have any feedback, experience with this group? Thanks!

Spark Energy Deception

FYI there are people from Spark Energy canvassing the neighborhood. Spark Energy seems to be a legitimate company albeit with some very bad reviews online, but these reps are very deceptive. They told us that they were the "real' energy supplier and you have to just register with them to get the discounts.

Please file a complaint with the ICC if you encounter these practices http://ukvillagewatch.wordpress.com/2013/09/26/deceptive-practices-with-door-to-door-energy-salesman/

    "Another interesting feature being considered is a gateway at Halsted Street and Fulton Market to establish a focal point for the entrance to the district. The gateway could conceivably mirror some visual elements for which the Fulton-Randolph Market District is known. A few preliminary designs were shown. One was a cantilevered piece of wood (which looked something like an elongated banana). Another was a steel arch that took its inspiration from innovation industries, like the crew from Google that will soon inhabit the 1K Fulton development. A third possible gateway design was a food-inspired theme. Again, it was a bit primitive on the screen, and looked like a neon slab of beef."

    Exciting changes are afoot!

German Shepard running loose

During my workday lunch walk on Tuesday 4/1 around 1:20pm I spotted a German Shepard running loose southbound on Western Avenue. It then went west on Erie toward the park, but I didn't see where it went from there.

I'm not on facebook, so I can't post to the popular lost pet group there, so thought this might be a good place to start. I didn't get remotely close enough to notice any collar, tags, sex, etc.

Check you blind spots

It's that time of the year people. Check your blind spots and mirrors when turning or dodging potholes. There may just be a bicyclist there. And when riding, make sure you are just as aware too! Let's keep everyone safe and enjoy these rising temps.

A Speed Camera Riddle

Four cars are traveling along Ashland Ave at a speed of 26 mph.
The posted spreed limit is 30 mph.
A second sign says the speed limit is 20 mph on school days when children are present.
They pass a school.
It is 12:00pm on a weekday.
There are no children present.

A camera flashes and at least one car owner gets a warning for speeding in the mail.

How does the camera know whether children are present?

How does the camera know whether children are present?

Below is copied and pasted off of http://www.cityofchicago.org/city/en/depts/cdot/supp_info/children_s_safetyzoneporgramautomaticspeedenforcement.html

The enforcement hours will be limited from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. in safety zones around schools on school days (Monday through Friday)

-- 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.: 20 miles per hour (mph) speed limit when children are present; and the posted speed limit when no children are present

-- 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.: 30 mph speed limit

Huh??

Also, does anyone know whether "school days" are considered every Monday-Friday all year long since some Chicago schools operate on different school years?

  • As with red light cameras, I imagine the speed cameras need to be reviewed by a human. This is a legal requirement I believe (I could be entirely wrong), because you must be able to "confront your accuser." Regardless, I would not be surprised if they had a camera pointed at the sidewalk as well as at the traffic.

  • I always assumed that I needed to go by the lower speed limit in school zones M-F 7a-4p year round since some kids are in summer session as well. But I also don't drive here in Chicago.

Anyone know anything about the Ohio Ogden Market?

I walk by this everyday and it is such an eyesore. If they put the right type of business there, I'm sure that it would get some traffic. Anyone know the plans for this building? I would love to see something go into the space.

  • Wombat..I loved N&G also! They were such nice people.

  • I talked to him way back in 03, with intentions of tearing it down and building residential units he wanted $2 million for it back then he was crazy.
