Feedback on a home improvement / construction company: People's Choice

Probably like several buildings post this brutal winter, our Condo Association is faced with many needed expensive and expansive roof repairs. We have vetted 2 of our bidders with personal referrals, but we were hoping to get feedback on our 3rd one, "People's Choice Home Improvement Company". Anybody have any feedback, experience with this group? Thanks!

Spark Energy Deception

FYI there are people from Spark Energy canvassing the neighborhood. Spark Energy seems to be a legitimate company albeit with some very bad reviews online, but these reps are very deceptive. They told us that they were the "real' energy supplier and you have to just register with them to get the discounts.

Please file a complaint with the ICC if you encounter these practices http://ukvillagewatch.wordpress.com/2013/09/26/deceptive-practices-with-door-to-door-energy-salesman/

    "Another interesting feature being considered is a gateway at Halsted Street and Fulton Market to establish a focal point for the entrance to the district. The gateway could conceivably mirror some visual elements for which the Fulton-Randolph Market District is known. A few preliminary designs were shown. One was a cantilevered piece of wood (which looked something like an elongated banana). Another was a steel arch that took its inspiration from innovation industries, like the crew from Google that will soon inhabit the 1K Fulton development. A third possible gateway design was a food-inspired theme. Again, it was a bit primitive on the screen, and looked like a neon slab of beef."

    Exciting changes are afoot!

German Shepard running loose

During my workday lunch walk on Tuesday 4/1 around 1:20pm I spotted a German Shepard running loose southbound on Western Avenue. It then went west on Erie toward the park, but I didn't see where it went from there.

I'm not on facebook, so I can't post to the popular lost pet group there, so thought this might be a good place to start. I didn't get remotely close enough to notice any collar, tags, sex, etc.
