Family of 4, looking for housing under $900.

I know it is uncommon for this price range, but currently we are looking for a home closer to the High school (Schurz). We are a family of 4, plus a pet bunny. budget it 900 or less/month. It also doesn't have to be immediately near to Schurz, but within a 20 or so minute walking distance would be nice.

  • Should mention heating and electricity in our current home are included in the current $800 bill. 2 rooms would be fine. Near train or bus stops would be preferable.

Movie Crew by Schurz

Anybody know what's being filmed
on Milwaukee/Addison? Lots of trailers, set up people, etc

  • It's Chicago PD, filming at the mini mart on Milwaukee and Kildare

  • They were filming scenes for Netflix's new series Sense 8. They had signs all up and down Addison, by Milwaukee, reserving space for their trailers. My husband, who was a fan of Lost, walked by Naveen Andrews on his way home but was too shy to stop and ask him for an autograph.

  • Irving Bark Deb Step!

    What scene were they filming? How to get stuck in traffic because a-hole punk kids can't use a crosswalk after school? Nice...

Good Afternoon Partners,

In an effort to ensure that all of our youth are college and career ready, CPS has launched an initiative to help out-of-school high school students re-enroll in school. To that end, we opened 3 Student Outreach And Re-Engagement Centers (SOAR Centers). The SOAR Centers are located in Roseland, Little Village and Garfield Park.

We will be holding an open house to provide more detail regarding the new SOAR Centers on Thursday July 24, 2014 at the JLM Center at 2622 W. Jackson, Chicago, IL 60612 at 9 a.m.

You can make a referral to the SOAR Center by simply sending us an email at SOAR@CPS.EDU. We will reach out to the student as soon as possible and offer the following services:

· Develop a re-enrollment plan and a graduation plan for each student.
· Assist the student with selecting and enrolling in a school that best fits his or her needs.
· Assist students with developing strategies to overcome issues that have kept them from succeeding in school.
· Develop an individual success plan that maps out academic, behavior and attendance goals for each student.
· Provide online credit recovery for students for whom we are unable to provide immediate school placement.
· Provide opportunities for students to earn service learning hours.

Please join us on Thursday July 24, 2014 for more information. If you are able to attend, please RSVP to ssmith114@cps.edu. If you have any questions regarding the SOAR Centers or would like to receive SOAR marketing materials, please call Sean Smith the SOAR Manager at (773)710-7329.

Jose's Frozen Yogurt!

New frozen yogurt store on 4032 N. Milwaukee just north of Irving Park. I stumbled on it and was surprised at the new stores opening on Milwaukee. A nice spa called Luxe Blue and this frozen yogurt store where you pay by the weight and add-ons. I'm glad to see more stores like these in 6 corners! Support our local businesses - can't wait for the Chipotle to open.

    It's actually called Josi's Frozen Yogurt. Thank you so much for letting us know! It's difficult to find frozen yogurt around here.

Just came across some interesting tax info, which sheds the light on the recent news about companies leaving/planning to leave our state.

"Illinois has been shown to be in the bottom half of the rankings in some of
the most prominent studies that rank states according to their business tax
climate. Although, some question whether the entire enterprise of
measuring an overall business tax climate for a state can be valid or useful,
below are some of Illinois’ rankings based on the most popular methods of
comparison:

1. State Business Tax Climate Index – 31st
2. Small Business Policy Index – 35th
3. State Competitiveness Report – 38th
4. Economic Outlook – 48th

 Illinois rankings in the area of business tax climate have fallen over the last
several years. Much of this falloff can be tied to increase in the personal
income tax rates (from 3% to 5%) and corporate income tax rates (from
4.8% to 7%), which became effective for tax year 2011."
