New Aldi and Costco gas station at Melvina and Touhy

An Aldi is being built along with the Costco gas station at Melvina and Touhy. This will exponentially cause a greater Niles’ generated traffic impact on North Edgebrook/Wildwood as outlined in the letters below and cause a greater impact on North Edgebrook/Wildwood streets that are still needing repair from last winter. History is repeating itself as this is exactly what happened 20 years ago when Target first went in, North Edgebrook residents where kept in the dark by Niles. It is time for Chicago to stop being Niles’ fool.

Pop Up Table Space Available - Now you can rent a table for just one month

Attention local craft and food artisans! We have cleared out our center aisle to make room for our latest addition - pop up market space!! Now you can rent a table for a month, setup your goods, and we will sell them for you!

Table space is approximately 4' x 2' and there are three tables total. The table fee is $100 for the month. There is a sales commission fee of 10% + 3% to cover credit card transactions. The first open slot is August but you can move in as early as July 18th. At this time, we aren't accepting any jewelry.

This option is open to anyone currently selling on consignment or for any new artisans. The idea is to change the center aisle every month and give different artisans a chance to showcase their work.

In addition to the new table space, we also have one booth available for rent - this is for long term rental (versus the tables which are short term).

Please contact us for more info: market@localgoodschicago.com.

Expectant parents in Jefferson Park?

I'm interested in meeting new or expecting parents in the Jefferson Park area. My husband and I are expecting our first at the end of February and would love to connect with nearby neighbors. We'd also be interested in future playdates, sharing day care responsibilities, or starting a babysitting co-op.

  • Ugh! Little Bloom Daycare and Irma was the worst experience ever. I am glad to have taken my 8 month old out of there (after a tortorous 8 weeks there) and isnt it interesting that I cant find her anywhere when I search on google! Id like to leave a review on that home "daycare".

  • My daughter is older now, but when she was small, Mamapedia (a free blog) was a lifesaver. There is advice from millions of moms, like birthday party ideas, parenting ideas, recommendations on a local doctor, etc. The local parents group is a great idea, and I wish I had time for it back then. Anyway, you might find this to be a helpful addition to your group. http://www.mamapedia.com/

45th Ward Committeeman Elections March 20, 2012

Who's running, who are you voting for and why?

  • Kenji in the 186 posts didn't see one crude remark about female body parts, or a remark which included stalkish details.

  • How quickly can Jake/Blanche be pinked out of existence?

Have a Question for Your Alderman, John Arena? Ask it here!

What local issues matter to you? This Wednesday, December 5, Ald. John Arena (45th Ward) will be answering your questions live starting at 7 p.m. on cable channel 21 and online at http://www.cantv.org/live. Do you have a question for Ald. Arena? Leave a comment on this post or watch and call in live. Any questions are really appreciated! Learn more about CAN TV's Political Forum at http://www.cantv.org/politicalforum.htm.

  • I followed up with an email to Alderman Arena regarding my two unanswered question and he promptly replied to indicate that the blue recycling carts would be coming our way in 2013 and he is pushing for us to get our sooner rather than later. He also has an ordinance in the works to make Elston Ave. a no parking zone along the Marion's stretch and 20 feet beyond both driveways. He also indicated that another traffic congestion study will be done. This is all good news.

  • Federal mandates the local police municipality to govern airports which CPD covers. at O'Hare and Midway. So why are taxpayers on the hook for unarmed Aviation Police to qualify in police gun qualifications? It is an enormous waste of the taxpayers money and a waste of resources and time since they are not armed and will not be in the foreseeable future.

    An exhibition of veterans' artwork that explores the relationship between Surrealism and the experience of war.

    SURREALISM & WAR

    Opening: Memorial Day, May 26, 2014 | 10AM - 5PM
    11AM Color Guard
    2PM Artist Talk

    Exhibition Run: May 26, 2014 - November 1, 2014
    Artists: William Dugan, Stan Gillett, Michael Helbing, David Keefe, Jim Leedy, Robynn Murray, Giuseppe Pellicano, Ehren Tool, Richard Yohnka, and many more.

    Surrealism is an attempt to revolt against the inherent contradictions of a society ruled by rational thought while dominated by war and oppression. Surrealism seeks expression of thought in the absence of all control exercised by reason and free of aesthetic and moral preoccupation. It is this same absence of control exercised by reason that many combat veterans seek to explore and express after their experiences in war. SURREALISM & WAR features the artwork of nine veteran artists that intentionally and unintentionally use and explore Surrealist processes and concepts.

    Of note, SURREALISM & WAR includes the seminal work, The Earth Lies Screaming, by Jim Leedy, a Korean War veteran who was one of only two Americans invited to participate in the largest Surrealist exhibition ever assembled at the Retretti Art Center, Finland, an exhibition that began with Miro, Dali, and DuChamp, and culminated with several works by Mr. Leedy.

  • I disagree Frank. I have a friend who is licensed out of state for lower insurance as well as a free ride in IL. A few hundred dollars matter to some people. Insurance is less in rural Indiana than CHicago.

  • "people wouldn't choose to be outlaws." Scratching my head.
