Board of Ed President David Vitale makes money off pushing public dollars to charters

See http://gapersblock.com/mechanics/2014/08/19/board-of-education-president-to-benefit-from-proposed-south-side-charter-school/

Isn't this guy supposed to act in the interests of the public school students of Chicago? Looks like he's another corrupt, profiteering bureaucrat working in lockstep with Rahm and Arnie Duncan to rip apart public schools and sell of the scraps to profit-making, child-harming, criminal enterprises (under federal investigation no less) like Concept Charter schools. It's waaaaay past time for an elected school board!

Bike Rules of the Road

When walking or riding your bicycle on a sidewalk or on or along a crosswalk,
you must yield the right-of-way to pedestrians and give an audible signal before
overtaking and passing them. You must operate as a pedestrian. Watch for signs
that prohibit riding bicycles on sidewalks and crosswalks.

Archer Avenue sidewalks are a constant bike path. There are NO road signs on the sidewalk which are an obstacle for both the bike rider and the pedestrian. There are NO SIGNS which indicate restrictions of bike riding on the side walk; however, they are badly needed.

  • Rosario Wife,Mother, Friend!!!

    I agree! And bike rules of the road need to be handed out with bikes sold! This man riding on the sidewalk up Campbell yelled at me and my kids who were walking on the sidewalk! That "I needed to keep my kids under control when I see bike riding by" we were just walking! My boys were running a bit!" But he was so rude and entitled about it!

  • That's BS...it seems to me now a days BIKES RULE STREETS & SIDEWALKS!!!

  • I'm so tired of bike riders, specially now with the bike lanes. They take up more than their own bike lanes

A Room with a View

I have prayers in my heart for him. What is his story? This morning he was at the corner by the laundromat slouching on the Red Box with his carts half on the sidewalk, half in the street. He has moved with all of his possessions. Obviously he doesn't want to hide under the railroad tracks like a troll. He can barely move.

  • Is this the same man who lives between the laundry mat and the gas station near Archer and Rockwell? He's been there for years and years.

    When it's extremely cold in the winter, the city will scoop him up, but he returns again with his shopping carts. People put blankets out for him, coffee from Dunkin Donuts and some food.

    You cannot force an individual to accept assistance. He seems dedicated to the lifestyle he's presently living.

    It's a very difficult life.

Neighborhood Watch

Question: Was reading Mr. Easy Money's older posts. Is there a neighborhood watch group in Brighton Park? See Something - Say Something

  • Easy Money "Ask not what your country can do for you; ..."

    Hey! Maybe ... Committeeman Ricardo Garcia for BETTER 12th Ward can answer the question for us if he is not too busy promoting Uber?!

  • We were trying to start one up here, but we did not have very many volunteers besides my better half . We do however have a pretty good phone tree

Things are GREAT!

Hodeho,

Have you seen the recent crime reports for Brighton Park? or

Are you busy preparing Garry McCarthy's "things are just great" in the City of Chicago murder reports?

  • Easy Money "Ask not what your country can do for you; ..."

    Hopefully, the Losers of Brighton Park DO NOT spill over into Garfield Ridge or Clearing (W).

  • hodeho Twelve-year Brighton Park resident

    Yes, I keep an eye on the crime reports here in Brighton Park. Your comment about Garry McCarthy makes no sense. Was that a clumsy attempt at sarcasm? I'm not familiar with the Loser family...or are you not familiar with how to use capital letters?

Gardning?

I have plenty of blossoms on my veggies, but very few fruits, veggies! Only seen 1 bee all summer so far. Why is everyone so afraid of them that they kill them off?
Is there a professional beekeeper available to hire?

  • Erik H Loyola & UofC alumnus, Chicago Loot Drop charity

    I've seen some honey bees this spring/summer by me over by St. Mary of Perpetual Help. Just one or two each day, though we don't grow any flowers and I don't spend too much time outside at home to know if I'm seeing as many as are actually coming by.

    Seeing more yellow jackets over the past week or two instead, though.

  • They just go about their life's not bothering anyone unless provoked.
