Housing Needed

As you may know, Chicago Urban Art Retreat Cente has a Women's Residence on our 2nd floor. We offer safe comfortable furnished housing for individual women. We are full and now need to find alternatives for women who inquire.
Does anyone know of a rental opportunity for a single woman who needs to leave her husband's house? just got laid off from the bakery. Works for a Temp agency with lots of experience in bakery work. She is hopeful she can get another situation soon.
If you have a small inexpensive rental or know of one for this mature woman, please contact Urban Art Retreat and we will let this woman know about the possibility. Thanks a lot. Dianna@urbanartretreat.com

'A' for Obama, 'F' for Emanuel: North Lawndale residents

By JERAMIE BIZZLE and TERRY DEAN
Contributing Reporter

NORTH LAWNDALE - A small sample of residents in North Lawndale give high grades to President Barack Obama for his job performance, while giving Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel an "F" for his time in office, according to a survey conducted by Lawndale Alliance, a community organization.

Lawndale residents were asked to grade their elected officials at the national, state, city, ward and county levels. The Alliance sent out emails to 2,700 residents but only 26 replied to the online survey, which launched in April of 2013 and remains open. The results were compiled in February.

    Why not? We learned a lot in the process, and engaged in some pretty interesting conversations. We even engaged you to the point where you calculated a somewhat precise response rate and asked why we would bother. You never know what kind of response rate you're going to get when you start.We promised people who participated that we would respond within a certain timeframe, and we did. When we do this again, we know what adjustments to make.

    In 2008 I voted for O.B Couldn't get enough. Listen to everything he said I tough he was going to be
    the best president ever.(Another JFK) And now I don't be leave any thing he says. Look all politicians lie to get reelected and try not to get caught. But in his case he goes on TV and says one thing then says another thing to cover up for the first thing he said. Like the time he said you can keep your doctor and the health insurance plan that you have PERIOD that turned out to be lie. And this leading from behind could get us in another war. He never should have stop the missile defiance system that the US was going to put in Poland that may have stop the Russians from what there doing now. Remember what he said when he tough the micro phone was turn off and it wasn't to the Russian diplomat.And now he wants to cut are military with everything that's going on in the world.
