Please take 30 seconds to vote for a project RAGE is working on with Urban Prep Englewood Campus students Pride of Solidarity 2017 - Trick'd Out Open Spaces! We need your votes to make this idea a reality!

The Englewood neighborhood in Chicago needs to be beautified and Urban Prep Englewood Campus class of 2017 wants to take on that charge. The students has been working closely with RAGE and they want a communal space with shipping containers on a vacant lot by the school in Englewood.

Most vacant lots here are seen as an eyesore that is typically where garbage is dumped. There are more than 6 vacant lots next to the school and if we are able to convert one of these to be a garden and serve as safe space with the use of shipping containers this will beautify the area. We have over 2000 vacant lots that are depressing to our youth, elders and the community at large.

This youth led effort from the class of 2017 "Solidarity Pride" wants to bring something to Englewood that has never been done here before. This new & innovative design will be open to the public & serve as a safe space with activities for all ages. There are not enough activities but there is a vast majority of vacant land and we want to repurpose this to spark fun, conversation and hope. We will use the funds to clean and inspect the soil of the vacant lot and to repurpose the donated shipping containers from nearby railway companies in the area. We will need cleaning supplies and designers to help us beautify the lot and tricked out the shipping container in order for it to be a hub for the youth and adults.

Here is the link: http://promo.sociallev.com/7cdpb2/vote/for/2221806

Thank you in advance for the support!

Home repairs

Looking for someone who KNOWS about construction , plumbing, and electrical.
Must be reputable and reliable. I have a plumbing leak in the inside wall in my
kitchen. Been leaking for a while, I don't have a basement, but a crawl space.
Don't know what's in the crawl space as far as any water accumulation. The main
shut off for the house is in the crawl space, or they would need a 'buffalo box
key' to shut the water off...

Looking for someone who KNOWS about construction , plumbing, and electrical.
Must be reputable and reliable. I have a plumbing leak in the inside wall in my
kitchen. Been leaking for a while, I don't have a basement, but a crawl space.
Don't know what's in the crawl space as far as any water accumulation. The main
shut off for the house is in the crawl space, or they would need a 'buffalo box
key' to shut the water off in the front yard. Looked in the crawl in November,
before closing it up, did not see any water. Does anyone know anyone who could
help. Sure the insurance company is not going to help, need estimates. I am a
senior citizen, with very limited income. </P>
<P>Thank you.</P>

    Thanks citizen on 57th! I'll give them a call when I get home from work tomorrow evening! They seem to be in my area also! I'll keep you posted on the outcome! (I love everyblock!)

  • jan in little village long time resident

    Decided to go with 'me & my boys'. They started the work today. So far, I am completely happy! Very professional, polite, and talkative. Very reasonably priced. Thanks again!

Sox vs Cubs

It's time for a real competition! Are Cubs fans cleaner than Sox fans? Tell us if you're a Cubs or Sox fan and if the maintenance of your property listed below is done. Who has the garbage picked up in front of your house, in the alley, on the corners, out in the street gutters. Who has put down preen and green to prevent the spring weeds. Are your leaves raked up from last year and are those newspapers off...

It's time for a real competition! Are Cubs fans cleaner than Sox fans? Tell us if you're a Cubs or Sox fan and if the maintenance of your property listed below is done. Who has the garbage picked up in front of your house, in the alley, on the corners, out in the street gutters. Who has put down preen and green to prevent the spring weeds. Are your leaves raked up from last year and are those newspapers off your lawn, parkway, and under your bushes gone. Is there a neighbor that you can help or needs help accomplishing these things.Tell us Sox or Cubs and if all that is done. Or tell us it's not done. Let's see the difference between a Cubs or Sox fan with cleanliness of their property!!!!

  • Well I didn't fool anyone! My goal as always is to pick up the garbage in front and back of your house, even your neighbors house. But I got no response! Ok

    Hi Merc, I got out there today. What a great day to do some cleaning :) btw I'm a sox fan, great day for opening day too
