    People in Sleepy Hollow need to swamp Ald Munoz with calls about both the hookers and food cart vendors. All of you are paying his salary, so get your money's worth.

    The next 8th District CAPS meeting will be on Wednesday, December 3 rd in the St. Joseph Room of St. Bruno parish - entry off 49th & Harding. The police officers that patrol Beat 815 that takes in all of Slwppy Hollow will be present along with the CAPS Sergeant.. People from Sleepy Hollow need to attend and voice their complaints directly to the police that patrol your area.

Anyone Else Woke Up on Nov. 5th, Wondering About Election Results?

I don't consider what happens around the nation as being incompatible as to what happens in our neighborhoods-- some my choose to 'disconnect', but what happens in
the world, affects the nation, the states, the cities, the communities, the neighborhoods, the families, the individuals....YOU and ME. Thus I address this topic up for consideration:

I can't say I was depressed, but I was seriously disappointed, and disheartened, not only to learn Rauner ($40 million-and-counting-a-year, Rauner) won the IL governorship, but...

I don't consider what happens around the nation as being incompatible as to what happens in our neighborhoods-- some my choose to 'disconnect', but what happens in
the world, affects the nation, the states, the cities, the communities, the neighborhoods, the families, the individuals....YOU and ME. Thus I address this topic up for consideration:

I can't say I was depressed, but I was seriously disappointed, and disheartened, not only to learn Rauner ($40 million-and-counting-a-year, Rauner) won the IL governorship, but that the DEM party was turned topsy-turvy on its head, and that the REPS virtually 'hijacked' our government as a democratic republic!

Definitely, I was suspicious of Rauner's win being rammed through so fast (I truly am not a fan of either party, but prefer Dems any day, to what Reps offer, esp. THIS MAN who is going to be our state nightmare-- starting with his promise to push through that Keystone Pipeline, along with all his Rep cronies now in office.

But, how to wade through all the information and disinformation, all the months of campaigning, etc. to trace where it all took this disastrous turn? Well, fortunately, another person has looked into it, and here, I post a link to an article a friend sent me just yesterday, I couldn't have researched and stated things better by this fellow, so here is a link to his full article (and well worth reading):

Tagging at Edwards

I work at Richard Edwards Elementary. We are having an issue with tagging at our school. In particular, an individual keeps writing "Sonic" along with gang symbols on our building at 4815 S. Karlov. We are calling graffiti-busters ASAP and painting or cleaning off what we can immediately. I thought Everyblock might just be another way to reach out to the community for ideas on how to help prevent this or catch the offenders. You are welcome to PM me if you like. I really enjoy working in this community and the people seem to really care about their neighborhood's appearance. We would like to stop this from happening at our school.

Thanks!

  • I have been reporting graffiti/gang tagging for years and then observing when it is covered over.

    I have been reporting graffiti/gang tagging for years and then observing when it is covered over. Except for a few longer delays (when Rahm the Bomb made the stupid decision to rework---read...slow down-- city graffiti removal), MOST of the tagging I reported got tended to rather quickly and most of the time was re-covered again and again. So, now that you're aware of what to do AH Teacher, keep on it, and thanks
    for caring and helping to clean up this neighborhood....

    Now, that we have the AHCA attention in this topic, are you aware that the 'art' that
    is painted on the wall behind the mechanic's shop on 51st street (between Keeler and Tripp) attracts gang-bangers that often hang out and watch the 'Artiste" paint that junk
    on the wall?

    I've personally witnessed 'gangsters' drive up (you can't miss 'em) in decked out cars
    to talk to this guy. And so much of the junk he paints on this wall-- if studied closely--
    appears to be racial, gangstuh jargon, images and gang names subltly woven into
    the 'art'.

    If the AHCA is SO concerned about gangs, tagging, neighborhood crime, etc., then THEY need to monitor this wall (the best thing would be to get the owner to stop having this wall 'tagged' like this). We don't need such junk-- passing as 'art'-- that'll be the day-- it's ridiculous and attracts more criminal elements into Archer Heights.

  • IMHO ... Tagging is a symptom of the problem. Can't cure diseases with Tylenol. Report gang activity to 911. Attend CAPS meetings. Organize your neighbors.
