The 2nd annual is coming up.
The art fair will coincide with the Sheridan Park wide yard sale so bring a granny cart and cash.
We will have about 20 vendors this year. There is room for more, if interesting in showcasing that talent if yours please contact the email at the bottom if the flyer.
Cheers and have a nice weekend,

What are the rules re cars making a right turn when there are bike lanes between car lane and corner
The markings on the street are a bit confusing to me as a car driver. If I want to make a right turn and there is a bike lane I need to cross, I imagine I need to yield to bike riders going straight. Is that the way it works? I don't want to smoosh anyone.

In case you didn't see this in the Alderman's weekly e-mail, we're getting new Divvy stations. They might take a while because the bike supplier just wrapped up bankruptcy proceedings.
New 47th Ward Divvy Stations
I am pleased to announce that Divvy will be expanding their network farther north and west. This includes the addition of 5 new stations in the 47th Ward. These new stations bring our total number to 27. A list of the new locations can be found below.

Senseless violence. The Alderman's tweet's are the usual. Of course every alderman, in every ward where there has been a shooting will discuss retaliation prevention. Will that discussion prevent retaliation? There were eight shootings tonight 05/24/2014. A young man was gunned down in Uptown and officials are still having "discussions"? There has been two shootings in the past month in Uptown and it is just May. There is heavy police presence in Uptown. Residents are attending Positive Loiterings but every...
Senseless violence. The Alderman's tweet's are the usual. Of course every alderman, in every ward where there has been a shooting will discuss retaliation prevention. Will that discussion prevent retaliation? There were eight shootings tonight 05/24/2014. A young man was gunned down in Uptown and officials are still having "discussions"? There has been two shootings in the past month in Uptown and it is just May. There is heavy police presence in Uptown. Residents are attending Positive Loiterings but every year we are having "discussions" about shootings in Uptown and across the city. The police can only arrest where there is a crime or they have a suspect. Tonight we have no suspect???? We must have more strategy to combat crime more than "Positive Loitering" It's not working! I apologize. It is not working. The solution is right before our elected officials. I wonder do they not know or are they turning their heads. To spend $110,000 on "Two Men and a Van" is absurd knowing there is a bigger fish to fry. Maybe they have turned their heads to focus on simpler issues. Oh well you can not come up with a effective strategy, if you do not know where to start. My prayers go out to the family of this young man. I hope we refocus our "Violence-Prevention" efforts sooner than later.
Pretty good Sun-Times piece on the broader plan.
See for yourself...it is shine-y and new.
