Potholes are slowing traffic

Good job City of Chicago. Haven't seen potholes repaired yet. It's been keeping the speeders under control! Just drive down most O streets north if Touhy and you'll see what I mean. In the meantime keep the Harley in the garage. You'll risk being swallowed up in a pothole!

  • We live in Edison Park and our potholes were filled yesterday

Best Friday Fish Fry?

Where can one find the best Friday Fish Fry?

  • Bob

    We like the Mecca. Closest to a good old fashioned Wisconsin fish fry. Only thing missing is the ball of cheese on the table & potato pancakes. Food is very good.

Olympia Park - Dog Question

Is there a leash law? I just asked a person to please put her dog on the leash after I saw her dog approach two other dogs aggressively run after two dogs within a minute. Her dog pee'd on one of the dogs. I asked nicely, but my request was not received well by her.

  • If it's a serious threat or attack, quietly follow the person home . When you have their address, call the police.

  • I contacted the alderman's office last year when an unleashed dog in Olympia Park approached me and my dog (leashed) and jumped on me with its dirty paws all over my work clothes. I ended up having to change clothes and missed my train. The owner was on the other...

    I contacted the alderman's office last year when an unleashed dog in Olympia Park approached me and my dog (leashed) and jumped on me with its dirty paws all over my work clothes. I ended up having to change clothes and missed my train. The owner was on the other side of the park and had no idea what was going on. The alderman's office told me I needed to go to a CAPS meeting and complain to the police. The same dog is always off leash with run of the park and relieves itself without an owner around to pick it up (which I also believe is at least a city ordinance?) Not a huge priority for the police but I assume they have to catch in the act to enforce?

Air Plane Noise

Yesterday day was a nice day to enjoy expect for the constant air planes flying over Edison Park. Anyone else had enough?

  • CGR neighborhood watching :)

    You can always move to the south side where you'll hear nothing but gunshots all the time.

What happens when the weather gets warmer?....Do we stay inside, because of the jet noise? Smartie...re:of moving to the southside....question: has the FedEx plane come over your house at 3:30am and shake you awake??! Probably not....By the way...Park Ridge is a lot closer to the airport! I mean, the last time I looked at a map.....I don't live near the airport and many of us don't either. There are some of us who want to have some quiet in their city lives and not have city officials twist the taxpayers arm for their coffers. MHO....

Loud Boom Heard

My neighbour mentioned hearing a loud boom the other night, Friday night to be exact. I did not hear anything but just now, Sunday March 30th I heard an extremely loud boom that woke me up. It was a little after 3am and was followed by a smaller explosion sound. Obviously my first assumption is fireworks but I just wondered if anyone else heard this or has a better guess. Thanks-

  • It was much louder than what a crash would have made. I heard it as well. Sounded almost like an M80 going off but more powerful. Woke me from a dead sleep. I only heard it Friday night though.

  • my sister who lives closer to the kennedy heard this BOOM also. Said she has heard it about 3X in the last 6 months. Someone mentioned possible "bombs" coming from Ohare to scare the geese away??? Anyone hear this theory??

Olympia Park - Tennis courts used as dog run

If you are using the tennis courts as a dog run please make sure to pickup after your dog. A resident here cleaned up the courts yesterday so he could play tennis. It was absolutely disgusting how much he cleaned up. This goes along with people not picking up after their dogs in the park. Amazing..

Mail Problems... Again

Sorry to beat a dead horse here but the post office keeps finding new and interesting ways to screw up the mail. I am a frequent user of Amazon Prime and in their infinite wisdom it would appear they are using the newer delivery method of having UPS and Fed-Ex deliver packages to USPS to finish the delivery.

Sorry to beat a dead horse here but the post office keeps finding new and interesting ways to screw up the mail. I am a frequent user of Amazon Prime and in their infinite wisdom it would appear they are using the newer delivery method of having UPS and Fed-Ex deliver packages to USPS to finish the delivery. When you get your mail from the Norwood Park post office you already know why that is a problem. The online tracking says the post office attempted to deliver my package Monday at 9:19 pm!!! The door bell was not rung, no notice was left at the door, and there was no other mail delivered that night in the building. So I guess we're just lying about it now.... great. It says online, call the post office to schedule a re-delivery, or come in and pick up your package. I tried to call and the number was busy every time over the span of a day so I figure picking up the package is easy enough right? Wrong, I show up to the post office and they tell me it has been sent out for re-delivery. Awesome, thanks for making that decision for me without letting me know. Also I call the number again while I'm in there and can see nobody is on the phone, still busy. Why even have a phone? Lets stop lying to people at the very least. I don't get mail until about 9:30 last night, I get one package and some other mail, but not the package I've been waiting for. Once again, no notice left, and no door bell was used. I hate all the misdirection, fake updates, and faux protocol. Just be honest with me.. say that you stink and I'm lucky if I ever get my package. Amazon made this way too complicated, just have Ups drop the package off here.

    If you are using Amazon Prime the best advice I can give is to complain EVERY time a package misses the guarantee delivery date because of the post office. Usually Amazon will give you a percentage off, or extend your membership for one extra month, plus it is another complaint on record about their new system. I really hope enough people complain, especially since they are hiking up the price 20 dollars next week. I complained to Amazon Prime and the post office, sure enough my package was left for me around 8:30 in the evening the other night, and my regular mail arrived at 2:45 pm this afternoon today which is easily the earliest I've seen it delivered in a very long time.

    On a side note, printed on the box from amazon there was a message that said "Carrier Leave if no Response". They had no reason to take my package back to the post office for two or three days in a row.. unless they weren't actually attempting to deliver it in the first place... Liars.

  • radiochck Trying to escape

    The thing that is irritating me is not only that my mail isn't showing up regularly is that the carriers are upset that they are overloaded...like we made or want it this way.

mail in the 6600 blokck of Oconto

Just wondering if anyone else in the area get's thei mail delivered eevery other or every third day. It's kind oof funny too because sometimes mail will not be delivered until 6 or 7pm in the evening. Just curious.

  • I also have tried to call the Norwood Park post office to inquire about no mail certain days, the mailman ringing my doorbell(!) at 9:00pm when leaving a package in between the doors, and 2 missing packages. Busy signal since Thursday...

  • Thursdays mail consisted of receiving mail from 4 other neighbors including an IRS document and credit card statements. Last night I received an Amazon box (that the local mail now delivers for Prime) from a neighbor down the street. Complete train wreck around here

New Car Wash In Edison Park

Can anyone provide info on the new car wash in Edison Park across from train tracks?

  • I at EP car wash now. 4 cars here when I got in line. VERY slow. Took over 1 hour total. Norwood Wash much faster. I won't be back.

  • I apologize for the wait but some cars, suv's, minivans require more time to get the attention they need to come out right. I'm truly sorry that you feel this way and hope you'll give us another chance. Typically a hand car wash is about a 25minute wait once they get in the door. Again I'm sorry .

Cars broken into - 7400 block of Oriole and Oleander

Our neighbor's car was broken into last night around 3:00am. Luckily someone called police because they saw 2 suspicious people with backpacks looking in car windows. They were caught a short time later. Just a reminder to lock your doors and don't keep valuables in your car!
