Scooter Shop?

Looking to buy a scooter! Where should I go? I would like to see a variety (stella, honda,yamaha, sym). Is that possible or do I have to go to specific dealers for each brand? I know one shop I went to years ago had a bunch of Stellas and Buddies but that was it (on the NW side). Also not looking to scammed or anything. This will be my first scooter purchase so I would love to buy from helpful/nice people!!

  • belkis muldoon homeowner on 1500 block of Jackson Blvd

    Motorworks on Western is a great shop. Been around for a while. No scamming.

  • Curtis Kuhn Edgewater born and raised

    Scooter Works on Damen north of Foster has a showroom full of new and used scooters. They're friendly and reliable.

    How they'd have to pay for it is to outsource janitorial services etc. Or they'd pay $15 and lay off people so there'd be fewer janitors etc. Either way in the instance of the schools, people would lose jobs. I'm not saying this would apply to the private sector. With the schools' huge debt and no way to raise more funds to pay salaries the schools would have no choice but to layoff people.

  • Skinner Elementary School reviewed by a parent

    We like Skinner, but my daughter's second grade classroom (neighborhood) now has 37 (yes, that's right, 37) students! Kudos to Ms. Katie Schwartz for her ability to keep her students focused and challenged, all the while maintaining order and calm.

  • Skinner Elementary School reviewed by a parent

    We have been very happy with our experience at Skinner West Elementary School. Our daughter is in the classical program there. Before attending Skinner West she was bored and had started to dislike school. This has completely changed since attending Skinner West. She absolutely loves school! While we have a bit of a commute to school, it is well worth the drive. In my opinion, I believe that Skinner West has two main factors working for it: First, I am very impressed with the teachers. They appropriately challenge students and work with students to develop studying skills that are necessary to achieve success academically. Second, the students in her class are all high achievers. Finally, it is 'Cool' to be good at school. These two factors synergistically work together to create a culture that promotes intellectual growth and a health amount of academic competition. Another benefit of Skinner West is the after school star program. They organize a myriad of activities after school while still providing quiet study hall time so that students will finish HW before heading home. Over all - at least for our family - Skinner West is a complete gem!

Found dog

I found a dog at roughly Elizabeth and Ohio while I was walking my dog. It was loose and just followed us home. I took it to the vet to see if it's microchipped, no luck. Spread the word if you want.

Please contact me if this is your dog or you know whose it is
