    Congratulations. It's unfortunate that the Chicago Park District does not publicize good news like this. It's not even listed in the News section of the Park District's home page on the web. They have not even publicized Governor Rauner's freezing of State grants that will affect a total of 27 Chicago projects at 25 parks across Chicago which stand to lose $28 million for scheduled improvements. “The Governor talks about a shared sacrifice, but his budget and decisions to freeze previously awarded grants ask the children and families of Chicago to do all of the sacrificing,” said Mayor Emanuel.

Excitement in the 43rd

Congratulations to Caroline Vickrey, a West Ridge native, on her work to bring Michele Smith to a runoff! Throughout the city change is desperately needed and Lincoln Park is no exception. The hard work didn't stop on Tuesday though and I have faith that the 43rd Ward will get the alderman they deserve!

Weeks Later...Alley Blocked With Snow

There is a disaster waiting to happen in the alley behind O’Reilly Auto Parts/Eng’s Restaurant. I went down the alley last evening and was blocked by a full snow bank. I had to back out and turn. I believe this alley is the fire lane for all of the businesses there in Robin Realty’s plaza and the homes on Sherwin, and perhaps the townhomes on Campbell. This is also where the multiple garbage and delivery trucks go in and out....

There is a disaster waiting to happen in the alley behind O’Reilly Auto Parts/Eng’s Restaurant. I went down the alley last evening and was blocked by a full snow bank. I had to back out and turn. I believe this alley is the fire lane for all of the businesses there in Robin Realty’s plaza and the homes on Sherwin, and perhaps the townhomes on Campbell. This is also where the multiple garbage and delivery trucks go in and out. This plaza houses a restaurant, liquor store, laundry facility, supermarket (that cooks food), etc.

I considered calling this into the City of Chicago but it has been my experience that they are not responsible for alleys/parking areas. I have a feeling that the responsibility lies with Robin Realty. I haven’t had much luck with them in the past on other issues.

Another West Rogers Park fire

6400 block N. Seeley, what is happening around here that there are so many fires? Be safe firefighters!

  • Michael Archangel Just trying to balance out the "haters"

    This really cold weather brings out those space heaters. Radiant heaters, in particular, can ignite objects placed in close proximity. Certainly understandable that people want to stay warm but extra caution has to be exercised.

  • Such a good reminder, thank you

Low flying Osprey

Anybody see that low flying Osprey flanked by two military choppers traveling east this morning at about 10:30am? If you didn't see it I'm sure you would have heard it. Pretty darn cool!

  • Just flew over East Ravenswood a few minutes ago. The helicopter wasn't the same type as Marine One and its escorts, which I've seen a few times.

    Boy, the cold air sure makes loud aircraft even louder!
