landlord refused to make repairs!

Six outlets went out in my kitchen where I rent me and the landlord checked fuses they are all okay. There is also no power going thru the outlets as I went ahead and tested them also. I asked the landlord what is he gonna do about it,and he told me that the outlets worked before I moved in so I should be responsible for fixing the outlets! Everything else is good with him until this.I like living there don't no how to go about this? Has anyone gone thru anything like this? Thank's neighbors...

Dear every-block members I would like to a moment to introduce myself as a candidate for the 36th ward.I have lived in the 36th ward over 20 years its where I am now raising my family and its the ward I call home.
I am a 12 year member of the Chicago Fire Department where my current position is in support services as a liaison between the fire department's property management section and the City of Chicago. My role encompasses coordinating logistics and the deployment of resources needed in the repair and/or construction projects associated with the upkeep and maintenance of city fire houses. Through my daily responsibilities I interact, as well as have a great working relations with all city agencies.
Prior to my call to service with the fire department I worked as a Regional District Manager for Atlas Anchoring. As Regional Director I was in charge of managing multiple commercial projects and overseeing them to completion. In conjunction with my office responsibilities I also conducted periodic site inspections to assure our quality of work as well as city code compliance.

Before that I worked for Catholic Charities as a compliance auditor for all social service programs with the state. I also worked at West Side Futures where I assisted in the application, navigation process and/or dealing with any issues relating to social programs such as W.I.C and health care. I was also a translator for Spanish speaking families that didn't speak English.
I do understand that there are many people vying for this position and I hope I will be able to earn your support in the next few months.
If I am not your candidate of choice all I ask is that you participate in the process and hold your choices accountable. I am looking forward to meeting in the future and holding informative and professional debates with the other candidates. i do apologize for the long post.

Search, Arrest and Seize

Last night, Sept 4, 2014, at 10:30pm Chicago Police Officers searched and seized a Silver Dodge Caravan on the 1800 Block of Oak Park Ave. The officers also apprehended whoever was in the vehicle. I am unsure of the details, I just wanted to inform my neighbors of what I saw.

  • Please be vigilant when coming out of First Merit bank and Walgreens at North and Harlem. Seems like unsavory panhandlers appear out of nowhere at first of month ( pension days for seniors). These folks are rather aggressive in asking older folks for money and hovering in that parking lot. No security at all in that area.

  • Finian 38 years in Galewood

    There was a pedestrian hit at North and Austin around that time, could be hit and run driver

  • KC -monte clare KC , Monte clare

    i have also been confronted by pan handlers at walgreens. Next time i will alert the police. some are down right scary!

Good new on North Avenue

The Village of Oak Park finally owns the long-abandoned eyesore at 6641 W. North. If they can't sell it, they'll probably tear it down.

PNC Bank will soon be moving into the long-vacant building at 6621 W. North Ave. in Oak Park. I saw a lot of work on the building last week.
