Cable options in 60631?

Good afternoon ... my wife and I are moving to Norwood Park and I was disappointed to learn we won't be able to bring our RCN Cable and Internet service with us. A friend nearby in Park Ridge recommended WOW but they also don't serve 60631. Is Comcast the ONLY non-dish provider in the area? If not, I'd love others' recommendations. Thank you!!

  • Thanks for the advice, new neighbors!

    My only concern with cutting cable completely is the only thing we consistently watch live is sports and I'm not convinced we'd get everything we're looking for from an over-the-air HD signal. Again, I appreciate the feedback.

  • We have direct tv for over 12 years and I would never get Comcast, we love it.

Sears won't survive past 2016?

Here is an excerpt from yesterday's article in Crain's Chicago

Fitch Ratings today downgraded Sears Holdings Corp.'s credit rating to CC from CCC, a move driven by the retailer's continuing decline in profitability and the rate at which it's burning through cash. The agency warned that Sears may not have enough funding to support operations beyond 2016.

If Sears goes down, what will happen to Six Corners? I don't love the big ugly building and rarely shop at Sears, but it'll be exponentially worse if the store closes.

Petsmart 6 corners

Would like to know 1. Is there a estimated opening and completion date for the petsmart next to jewel? 2. If petsmart already has the property why the for lease sign is still in the window? Reason I ask 2 is when I called a few weeks ago they said property was still available.

6 corners Petsmart?

For some time they have been talking and from what I understand planning for a Petsmart next to jewel by 6 corners. My question is two part. 1. When is the estimated completion/opening dates? 2. If Petsmart already has the spot why is there still a for lease sign in the window?

  • I'm also very curious as to a timeline for opening.

  • pattymelt is mostly in charge

    The universe was put on hold while the Chipotle was being built. Now that it is open, I am sure this will move forward.

Animals going through the garbage cans

Does anyone have a solution to stop the animals,mostly raccoons, from going through the garbage cans? They tear threw the bags to get the food scraps. I've tried bungee cords and bricks but the garbage men throw them away. The alderman's office is useless because they suggest the same things I've been doing. When I tell the office that the garbage men throw my cords and bricks away they don't answer.

  • robin in WRP misanthrope

    Human urine helps...

  • PRW EP since 1990

    Try peppermint oil; the odor is extremely offensive to their senses which are sharper than ours or remove your cords and bricks the morning of garbage day, replace at days end once they’ve emptied.
    It really stinks, to put it mildly, that you take the proper measures with bungee cords and heavy bricks only to have others disregard your care. You were/are doing the right thing.

Concrete person

Hi Neighbors, Does anyone know of a reasonably priced concrete person who can do my sidewalks? Also, I have no flooding but a small amount of seepage so we need a bit of waterproofing.

  • Please let me know too. I have had 2 estimates at $7000

  • I know a great company for waterproofing, they have done 2 jobs for us at a very reasonable price.(basement crack where water was leaking in when it rained and a crack on outside of house) Very reliable, friendly, work done on time and as promised. Highly recommend

Timelife Warner books - in need of a good home

I have a box full of Timelife Warner books from the early 1970s that need a good home. There are about 25 or 30 of these books....the subjects of these books are mostly national parks with lots of pictures and text about the parks...the Cascades(Washington), Atlantic Beaches...and many more...these are free to a good home...email me or post here if you are interested...

  • I would like to see them for a few months and then give to Norwood Home or donate to Beaubien School, they appreciated my National Geographics very much.

  • Frank Lifer

    I teach at Hammond School located at 21st and California. These would be a great addition to my classroom.

  • Bing Owens Crazy about conservation and good soil

    These books have found a good home...thanks for asking....
