Happy Happy Joy Joy !!

Thanks to hard work from the Archer Heights Civic Association, Ald Mike Zalewski and community residents on 5000 and 5100 blocks of Kostner Kenneth and Kolin the auto repair shop Monroy's Muffler is no longer in business at Archer and Kostner

    vanmer79, you 'took the words right out of my mouth', as I've been thinking about this
    the last month or more, since, you're absolutely right...except for the 'Moran; sign being removed, nothing seems to have changed at that corner of Archer and Kostner,
    with this auto business:
    1) still a load of cars parked in their lot; and more in the bays
    2) still a load of guys hanging out their (one recent weekend, a very large group
    were just 'hanging' in their lot-- most not seemingly engage in work, but just standing
    around

    Given the Mr. Kostner ("Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy!!") started this topic, perhaps he and/or SWOldTimr could/would explain (enlighten us) WHY apparently nothing much
    has changed... Or does anyone ELSE know what the deal is (it doesn't make much sense to me to just close down one supposedly 'problematic' enterprise, to have another take over that is conducting 'business as usual).

SW-side Continues to Bury Head in Sand as Gov Quinn Gives $50,000,000 for Trails

As a former resident of Archer Heights and a former board member of the Archer Heights Civic Association, .... I told you so!

http://www.dot.il.gov/press/1%2030%2013%20ITEP%20-%20RELEASE.pdf

When will the leaders of the Sw-side wake up? When will the people of the SW-side (Archer Heights, Garfield Ridge, Clearing) wake up? There was a reason why I championed for a bicycle and nature path for many years. There was a reason why I repeatedly sought to meet with Ald.Burke, Ald. Zalewski, Cong. Lipinski. There...

As a former resident of Archer Heights and a former board member of the Archer Heights Civic Association, .... I told you so!

http://www.dot.il.gov/press/1%2030%2013%20ITEP%20-%20RELEASE.pdf

When will the leaders of the Sw-side wake up? When will the people of the SW-side (Archer Heights, Garfield Ridge, Clearing) wake up? There was a reason why I championed for a bicycle and nature path for many years. There was a reason why I repeatedly sought to meet with Ald.Burke, Ald. Zalewski, Cong. Lipinski. There was a reason why I repeatedly tried to get the 'leaders' of the AHCA to support a bicycle path. If only for the reason to give energetic youth someplace to blow off steam rather than by breaking into garages and other 'crime'. But then the local papers wouldn't have much to write about.

Everyone knows (or they find out the hard way after years of trying) that to get anything done in Archer Heights one needs to have the 'leaders' figuratively present the idea on a platter of promissory votes to who ever is the alderman at the time (pick one from the above). The more pomposity the better. Yes?

One prostitute, two prostitute, three prostitute, four. Apparently there isn't enough time between counting prostitutes on 47th & Cicero or trying to get a 'senior discount' from the local politicians to champion any other cause.

The SW-side, Archer Heights specifically is the land where politicians go to retire before they retire. It's a community where one with just a HS education is comfortable. Check out the last census. Wasn't Gov Quinn a guest at the AHCA meeting earlier this year?

A bicycle path people. It's easy. Have the conversation, interest and preliminary design on the shelf ready to go for moments like this!

  • Chet 606 Rogers Park, NOHavana, CE

    Wow! The SW side, specifically the 23rd ward, came out of a tough aldermanic election. Now finally we could move forward with the rebirth of the SW-side. OK Alderman Zalewski, show us your true colors.

    Everyone, please take this survey!

  • Chet, I believe Zalewski ALREADY has shown us his 'true colors'....

    btw, I took your survey...

City Shelter Dogs/Cast to be Killed Even Faster-- Thanks to City Council!

Just read this Ed's column (Paw Print's) in the local City Newshound:

http://www.citynewshound.today/a-petition-on-behalf-of-chicagos-pets/

The article reveals the resolution/ordinance that the City Council approved,
which will shorten the days dogs and cats are allowed to live before they are
killed (for dogs, from 5 down to 3; cats given 0 days, unbelievably)!

Here also, is the petition's direct link:

Please sign it and demand that the
city council rescind this resolution (that was supposed to be vetted before
us-- city constituents-- but never was)....

Let's let them know NOW, they made a huge mistake in ignoring us!

Please consider this everyone--
Is it O.K. for city shelter dogs and cats to be killed even faster (than the measly few days they previously have been allotted)? Is it fine to force them now to lose a couple more days of life-- AND the hope that they could find a home, or that their owners would have a couple extra days to find them before they are put to death?!

If you too, find this abhorrent,, please do sign the aforementioned petition, and please do contact--at least--your alderman and mayo, if not all of the alderman-- to let them know--personally-- how you feel about this devastating action against innocent animals:

Lnk to all 50 city alderman's emails):

  • Do they check for microchips???

  • Midway Kay--I hope you signed the protest petition and then I hope you will contact City Hall and tell them your view, directly. Thanks...animals need our help...and voices.

    Stanley Jones-- Don't know....but they would be pretty insane...and heartless... if they didn't give them even THIS 'last chance'.

Our cable TV is too expensive.

Our cable TV is too expensive for what we use, and it just went up. We need good Internet for work and school, but we only watch a few channels these days. I was researching options. My buddy told me about a site that finds service with TV channels you watch:www.10channels.com. It found a TV/Internet combo that would saves us $40 with a switch to Direct. There's also a good option for ATT.

I want to call the number and make the change. Just wondering if any of you have Directv or ATT Internet? Any advice is helpful.

Lowering my cable TV Bill.

We finally finished renovations to our house and just moved back in. I'd like your advice. We bought a new connected TV and would like to simplify our tv package with some streaming services. I learned from: www.10channels.com that all the channels we watch are in a basic TV package. We would like to downgrade our package or switch to Comcast bundle w/ high speed internet. It also mentioned SlingTV as a good option for us. Who has the best internet in our area and what are some good streaming providers? All ideas are welcome.

  • Hey Doug, i have Direct TV and AT&T and they both work great! With my Business I offer essential services such as Com-Ed, Peoples Gas, Direct TV, Dish, AT&T, Sprint, Verizon and much more at discounted rates.Let me know if you are interested and i can give you more details. Have a great Day!

  • Hi Doug. thank you for sharing. I clearly am in the same boat as you because I pay so much for tv services and don't watch that much. I use comcast and could switch to a lower package and still get everything I want. Thanks for sharing. good luck.

Attn: Animal Advocates!

Love animals of all stripes, and would like to help them weekly
(beyond watching out for local lost/stray animals in your neighborhood, adopting pets, donating $ to animal causes, volunteering at shelters)?

Then, I invite you to check out-- and join (it's free) this very rewarding website I discovered and joined last year, called ANIMAL PETITIONS (Humans Defending Animals from Other Humans):

http://animalpetitions.org/

You might not think 'signing' petitions helps anything, but that
is simply not true....This site gives feedback on success stories
due to petition-signing; it thanks other animal activists and
legislators and others who can help intercede for animals; it helps
push through laws to protect them, beyond highlighting
important current issues and causes needing our attention, it helps the future welfare of animals.

When you sign up (free), you get at most 2 weekly emails of
the various petitions (some overlap). It takes minutes to sign
through the list (I just use a short nickname and last initial, then
cut and paste my address on the 2nd line-- its fast).

I can attest, that signing up and signing these petitions will leave you with a sense of accomplishment on behalf of helping animals everywhere (not only dogs, cats, but wildlife, nationally and world-wide, while informing you of the world-wide state of animal welfare, plus stopping crimes and hold animal abuse criminals accountable.

And, though the various stories are sometimes shocking and heart-
wrenching, you CAN and DO help animals by 'signing for them' and giving
them your voice on their benefit.

I hope you will join me in this great way to volunteer a few minutes per week for the love of animals....
