Cermak Market?

Anyone got the scoop on the old Dominicks on Ridge? Looks like they're doing a bunch of work there and I heard it was gonna be a grocery called Cermak produce or something like that. Thanks.

    I think it's a good sign that they didn't reopen the store too quickly without working on improving it and making it their own. I have no idea exactly what kind of store they plan to open at the site, but this article about a Cermark Fresh store that opened in Milwaukee has me hopeful. Cermak seems to have identified the "ethnic" market as its niche, which makes sense for the Ridge location, given the mixture of Indian, Pakistani and Latino consumers in the area, among others. But they seem to define "ethnic" quite broadly, including Polish, German, Italian and Greek.

    "If you were to walk into the (West Milwaukee) store, whether you're Hispanic, whether you're German, whether you're Polish, whether you're Italian, you'd think that store was for you."
    http://www.jsonline.com/business/cermak-is-a-fresh-face-on-the-area-food-scene-0360khu-161668825.html

  • Looking forward to their opening and I am hoping for a great store nearby to me. From the outside it looks like it will be soon.

Why We Have Rats

I took these photos this morning. The tenants in this building (the northwest corner of Devon & Fairfield) don't care how they dispose of their garbage. Some of it is tossed out of the second and third floor windows above the dumpsters. I once saw a bag in mid-flight but couldn't tell which floor it came from. Much of it comes from tenants who toss their bags on top, behind, or next to the dumpster. The maintenance man is always...

I took these photos this morning. The tenants in this building (the northwest corner of Devon & Fairfield) don't care how they dispose of their garbage. Some of it is tossed out of the second and third floor windows above the dumpsters. I once saw a bag in mid-flight but couldn't tell which floor it came from. Much of it comes from tenants who toss their bags on top, behind, or next to the dumpster. The maintenance man is always cleaning up the alley, but he wasn't there today. And, as of half an hour ago, there's even more garbage on the ground, more bags tossed into the alley. Recently someone has begun to leave newspaper with torn bread and what appears to be cheese on top the dumpster several times a week. This may be poison (note the dead rat between the bags) and would explain the two dead squirrels and dead pigeon I've found in the last week. Squirrels are always on these dumpsters because there's always food here. The city has repeatedly cited this building but the tenants continue to dump their garbage like this. (I picked up the rat and the bread and cheese after I took the pictures.) I heard on tonight's news that Orkin has named Chicago the city with the nation's worse rat problem (based on the number of citizen complaints). The tenants here are one reason that's probably true.

This is a public service announcement in hopes of preventing crime.

District 24 recommends all trick or treating to be done between 2pm and 8pm and with adult supervision if possible.

1.Keep kids away from registered sex offenders possibly living in the area by checking the Illinois State Police Sex Offender website at http://www.isp.state.il.us/sor/sor.cfm. Enter your zip code on the left hand side and a full listing will pop up!

2.Do not allow your kids to have candy or treats that appear to have been tampered with.

3.Know the route your kids will be take and do not deviate. Have them check in every hour, by phone or stop back at home.

4.Trick or treat in groups with an adult! If you can't take them yourself, see if another parent or two can.

5.Pick a safe costume, fire proof or treated with fire retardant. If wearing a mask of any kind, make sure that the eye holes are large enough for good peripheral vision. Take into consideration the weather and layer up if needed.

6.Know exactly other activities they are attending (parties, school or mall functions). If at a home, meet the parents in advance and get a phone number.

7.Set a time they must be home by! No excuses!

8.Kids will be kids so use your best judgment to explain the dangers of vandalism like throwing eggs. If this happens to you then here are some clean up tips; a) Cool water with detergent OR cool salty water should help. Hot water might bake it on b) A scrub brush might be needed for screens c) Water and ammonia on windows works well

9.Stay visible in lighted areas and carry a flashlight that is ON!

10.Serve your kids a filling meal before trick or treating and they won't be as tempted to eat any candy before they bring it home for you to check.

Every dog bite is unique

One morning my dog and I stepped outside, said hi to two neighbors, walked three or four houses down the street, said hi to a passer-by, and my dog bit her. Freaked us both out. She came back to my house, cleaned up the puncture (some how he managed not to tear her pants) and we exchanged information.

One morning my dog and I stepped outside, said hi to two neighbors, walked three or four houses down the street, said hi to a passer-by, and my dog bit her. Freaked us both out. She came back to my house, cleaned up the puncture (some how he managed not to tear her pants) and we exchanged information. I encouraged her to go to the ER or her doctor and said I would pay for everything. I gave her my vet's name and phone number. She ended up giving me a hug because I was so shaken. I even sent her pictures of my dog cuddling with one of his best friends, a nine month old baby. No police were involved, no suing or litigation. I guess the moral of this story is nothing is guaranteed, you can only do the best with what happens.

The reality is that dog bites can happen at any time, under any circumstances. Thank goodness you were right there to witness & control the situation.

    As far as calling 311 & reporting the incident, usually that's up to the person affected. As long as your dog is up-to-date on Rabies & you exchanged contact information, I wouldn't worry. It sounds like you did the right thing.

    If the person who has been injured does not find the need to call police, then it means she did not feel the dog was dangerous and the owner was extremely responsible and cared a great deal. Even suggested doctor visit and gave all information for vet. Offered to pay for all and she even brought her to her home and took care of the wound. I am sure if the injured party felt negatively towards any part of the incident she would have called the police. I agree totally with Sue, why call the police and have her dog unnecessarily involved with the police.

Mugging at 7300 N Ridge

Saturday evening someone was mugged at 7300 N Ridge. Weapon implied but not shown. Two male offenders, male blacks around 16 years old. One wearing black hoodie, the other wearing a green hoodie with an orange zipper. Fled eastbound on Chase. Taken was a phone and wallet.

  • Too much stuff happening around that small area just in the past few months. I believe it can all be traced back to one or two badly run rental buildings. I suggest the neighbors keep tabs, noting buildings that have a lot of problems with young thugs hanging out in front of them, a lot of noise, a lot of turnover of apartments. Complain on the 311 website. Enough complaints, and you can get the owners/managers into housing court.

Helicopters Over Rogers Park (The Park)

Does anyone know the reason for helicopters over Rogers Park (The Park) and southwest, maybe to Touhy and California (from my vantage point in the park), between 4 and 4:30 this afternoon.

  • Darius-- I'm in the park several times a day. It is great.
    Robin-- Our sense of privacy and safety is based on two dimensions. We normally only have to watch our backs. Our front and left and right take care of themselves. Surveillance from above violates that norm, which is precisely why cops and the media use helicopters.

  • robin in WRP misanthrope

    Charter schools also take the active parents away from the public schools, and leave behind all of the students with special needs (who are more expensive to educate)

  • Robin, that's exactly right. Activist parents hold schools--and politicians--accountable. Parental involvement is essential--for the kids, for the teachers, for the school. It's so hard to keep the culture wars from intruding on schools. I'm always amazed that so many people have difficulty accepting that kids need the basics--reading, writing, math--before they can begin to be educated in the true sense of the word.

Chicago's most dangerous intersections for pedestrians--Touhy and McCormick is near the top!

Chicago's most dangerous intersections for pedestrians--Touhy and McCormick is near the top!

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/ct-most-dangerous-intersections-met-20141014-story.html

In the suburbs, the most dangerous intersections were McCormick Boulevard and Touhy Avenue in Skokie; Cicero Avenue and Cermak Road in Cicero; and U.S. Route 12 and Cermak Road in Westchester.

  • I can see Touhy and McCormick. The speed limit on McCormick is 40mph but most people drive through there way faster and don't really yield to anyone. Then there is all that business traffic which will only grow will all the new things they are building up.

    And Cicero and Cermak is a MESS! That is one of the most frustrating intersections in the suburbs.

Street Cleaning - Cars Parked, No Tickets

Our street was cleaned yesterday and this morning. Not surprisingly, we had cars parked both days. No tickets were issued either day (and, as usual, there's a car right in front of my building). Motorists don't care if they park on a street cleaning day and if they don't get ticketed they're likely to do it again. At least it won't be a problem again until spring.

Message from campaign:

On behalf of Karen Lewis, freedom fighter and nationally recognized education advocate—the people’s champ—I want to first and foremost thank you for all that you have done. From collecting petitions to raising money to hosting house parties and listening sessions, your support rang out from every corner of this city, demanding new leadership at the highest level of city government.

Karen Lewis has decided to not pursue a mayoral bid. Yet she charges us to continue fighting for strong schools, safe neighborhoods, and good jobs in every community.

The tens of thousands of signatures collected for Karen confirm what the polls have already said: Chicagoans from Beverly to Uptown want to feel safe in their neighborhoods; they want an elected representative school board; and they want political leadership at every level that is responsive and responsible.

Our work is not about one leader, one race, or one election. Our work is about building progressive power to restore participatory democracy to Chicago. The groundswell of grassroots support is a testament to the strength of our movement and to the depth of dissatisfaction that hardworking Chicagoans have with the top-down, out-of-touch leadership in City Hall.

Together, we are changing the political landscape. We must hold our public officials—on every level—accountable for their track records on school closings, unemployment, violence, and nickel-and-diming working families.

So, in true Karen Lewis fashion, we will keep organizing and keep fighting to get our allies on ballot for alderman and ensure that every single voter in Chicago can vote YES for an Elected Representative School Board! Visit the page below to learn more about upcoming ERSB canvasses near you.

Sincerely,
Jhatayn “Jay” Travis

    I also tried to figure out what happened and it could have been the car was coming from Devon and turned into Lehigh, because Lehigh and Caldwell had been stopped for a while due to a train (Metra, I think) passing by. The car was travelling fast because I distinctly remember loud screeching of tires before the smash. The tires caused me to look up and then I saw the car hitting the pole and flipping over.

    I called 911 and saw people talking to someone in the car. Not sure if they were talking to the driver or to a passenger.

    Karen, I can't attend so I hope you or Peter will post some info about the discussions, ie., the kinds of issues that are important to attendees, Peter's responses, etc. He seems to be the only candidate who is actually campaigning. His statements so far indicate an awareness of local problems, a thoughtful, results-oriented approach that's based in reality, and a willingness to listen. Except for his statement to DNA Info that he wants to attract young people by holding yet another festival on Devon, I like his thinking, especially with regard to transparency in conducting ward business and working with nearby aldermen. We share a police district with a neighborhood (Rogers Park) that currently has a serious gang violence/murder problem, ad I wonder how that impacts police services in our community.

    As far as another festival goes, I wish that local leaders recognized that our community is much more than just Devon Avenue. The last thing we need is another noise-fest that (a) ties up traffic, disrupts bus routes, overwhelms residential streets with transient parking (nobody wants to pay the meters or the private parking lots), and keeps residents from attending to their own business; (b) brings in hordes of partiers who create mountains of trash that residents have to clean up because nobody else bothers, including the party-givers, the merchants, and the city; and (c) are of dubious economic benefit. I've never seen any reports that put a dollar figure on income and expenses from these street fests, only estimates that always claim great success. Should a city that can't fund a fully-staffed police force be spending millions on neighborhood festivals?
