Please do not litter signs

Hello, I'm new to this site. I signed up because I appreciate the updates from folks in the area. I'm in the triangle bordered by Milwaukee, California and Armitage.

Does anyone here want to see our Alderman put up signs on existing poles that say "Respect Our Community, Do Not Litter" ? I saw these signs in Andersonville when I lived there and I believe they actually helped. Right now, I'm not sure the folks here are aware of the benefits of not dropping their trash on the street or in front of their houses.

Also, the Chase grammar school should start a no litter campaign in their early grades. It just takes a guest speaker to come out for 40 minutes once a year. That's how I learned not to litter back in the 70's. Since then, the awareness seems to have dropped off.

I'd love to here if anyone has discussed or thought about solving the litter problem in this area.

    Does anyone remember the story about the 15-year-old boy in Singapore who received 15 lashes for throwing his gum on the sidewalk? I think he may have been an American tourist, but I'm not sure. Appalling, yes? Education at an early age is the key, and with that comes peer pressure. My eight-year-old used to insist that I use my seat belt, even though I grew up in an era when they didn't even exist. She learned this in school, and was really concerned about safety.

    As for how different cultures behave, the American culture of abundance and waste led to a complete lack of concern for the environment. I don't even think we used the word "environment" when I was growing up. Fast forward to the episode of Mad Men and the picnic scene, where Don and his family go to the park to eat. It's the late 1950s/early 1960s, and the scene is bucolic. When the picnic is over, they get up, and Don picks up the tablecloth, with all the used napkins, paper plates, pop cans, and crumbs, and shakes it out onto the ground, after which everyone walks away, leaving their trash on the ground. What appalled me about this scene was the memory it brought back: this was acceptable practice, way back then, and rare indeed was the person who picked up their trash. That was white middle-class urban American culture.

    It really all boils down to a lack of care and LAZINESS. It has absolutely nothing to do with proximity of trash cans, culture, etc. I watched two very different types of ppl, one on the Addison redline platform and one on broadway and thorndale, throw their trash on the ground mere FEET from trashcans. It makes me to crazy... I just want to go up to those people and be like "no please allow me to clean up after you since you're too lazy to do so". Ridiculous.

Logan Theater and TIF Money?

Am I wrong or did the Logan Theater/Mark Fishman get about $1MM in TIF money to renovate (courtesy of our Alderman)?
If that's the case, how and why do they think they can raise prices to $7? Haven't we already paid for these renovations?

  • All great points Carter.

  • Nelson R. Resident since 1984

    Dan,
    I hope your change of mind is sarcastic. You were right, of course. When money for schools is being drastically cut, to give $1M to a millionaire who just happens to be a major campaign contributor to the politician who gave him the money http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/chi-code-astroturfjan28,0,1829330.story?page=2to to renovate a movie theater that had been only recently in business is stupid and wasteful at best, especially when the process and the facts are hidden from the public.

    Thanks for letting more people know about this.

    Ipsento is good, although not very quick if you are in a rush to get to work. I would actually suggest getting an aeropress for about $25 and your favorite beans. I started using one of them about 2 years ago and it is so convenient and makes such an amazing cup of coffee that I actually don't want to go pay money for someone to make me some. Plus, it is absolutely the best device for making iced coffee if you like that! I know this isn't a coffee shop suggestion but had to throw it out there as someone who used to always go buy coffee at shops before I got my aeropress.

Red light camera, diversy and California

Has anyone gotten a 100$ ticket here before? Turning left in the morning onto California is hard because it backs way up waiting to get on 94.

    I definitely suggest watching the video if you get one of these tickets. I got one of these and was thoroughly outraged, until I reviewed the video and realized that what I assumed would be my triumphant vindication via footage showing me cautiously stopping and then making a right turn on red, was mostly in my head. These cameras have unquestionably made *some* intersections safer. whether the contract was awarded fairly/competently and issues of which intersections are appropriately are separate issues. If I had my way I'd ticket everyone who so much as blows through a stop sign, and it would have everything to do with quality of life and nothing to do with revenue. But, police, cameras, street lane and crosswalk striping, etc all cost money. When I was learning how to drive in the late 80s there were cops ticketing for traffic violations on a regular basis, several decades of police department staffing cuts have really taken a toll on basic civility on the street IMO.

Looking for an Optical store

Hello everybody,
I need feedbacks on a really good spot to get new eye glasses. Am looking for a place where they will actually take time to help you look for a pair that will look great and not any pair because they are nice. I went yesterday to a place and the only help I got was that they pointed out to me the frames for women and men. I feel awful now wasting my time and money. But at least I got a copy of my prescription.

  • Eye Candy Optics on Division has always been very helpful

  • Kay of East Village like a good neighbor.....

    As someone who wears contacts and glasses I hate the regulation that you have to get an eye exam once a year. My vision has not changed as an adult. But to get contacts and now even eye glasses you have to have a prescription once a year. That is just costly and time consuming for something I don't really have a need for. Anyone else find this to be the case?

My husband was walking our dogs today around noon on Logan Blvd near Richmond and two men dropped the leashes of their pit bulls that they charged our dogs. Our gentle greyhound has a puncture wound, or little mutt was lucky. These dogs were very aggressive, and one got loose twice, and the owners did not seem very concerned about it. Nick had to fight them off alone while the owners watched.

After the initial attack, one of the dogs managed to get loose a second time.

One pit bull was white female, about 80 pounds, hanging teats, recently had a litter; the second, sex uncertain, white with brown and black spots on her back, with some kind of doggie backpack. Owners were two white males, heavyset, scruffy goatees, very short hair, balding, in late 20's to mid 30's.

We plan on attending next CAPS meeting about this, but wanted neighbors to be on the lookout.

Babysitter/nanny recommendations

Anyone have any insight into where I can find quality and dependable in-home child care? I need someone for my 2 boys (aged 4 & 1). We only need about 20 hours/week but are having problems finding someone for these hours. Advice?

  • Emilie 5-year West Bucktowner

    Finding good pt nanny candidates is tough. I interviewed more than I expected because they were a mixed bag, lots of eccentrics who were interesting people but not a good fit for us. I also had a ton of no-shows and just plain flakey candidates. Our best ones came through Care.com too. The site requires a basic background check for the nanny to even get listed. I think that extra hoop to jump gives you a group that's more serious and on the ball about finding a good fit.

  • care.com is a good site I would also check local schools depending on when you need them since teachers will be out for summer soon and depending on what school type they are coming from the are background check and finger printed already and have proof of such, also posting here or at local gathering sites like Starbucks will get to lots of people also local colleges especially early childhood and teachers in training looking to add to their experience. Good luck

If someone who isn't a friend of a friend messages you, the message will, oftentimes, end up in there. It won't show up on your phone, and you won't even get a notification about it. So check manually***

  • Report your passport lost with the Chicago PD asap and possibly the Department of State. Start checking your detailed credit reports regularly. If your passport fell into the wrong hands, you could have years of aggravating stress and misery awaiting. I speak from 14 years of experience as a victim. I hope you find it soon!

    Walked to Parts & Labor instead and our hunger and thirst was satisfied. Noticed a scraggly looking tree in the parkway on the way, but didn't call the city to cut it down. Instead, I choose to patiently wait and see if it comes back to life in the coming months.

    Just like I will patiently wait and see if new trees get planted and judge not my neighbor.

I've been waiting for some fresh activity in this building! It has so much potential but is currently mostly empty. And I don't mind a good thrift/value store, but there were 4-5 in a row there. Also, I can't stand how the one shop always has all those rows of waste-down mannequins with ugly tight pants on.

Here's hoping the owner has luck filling the spaces with valuable businesses and happy residents! If anyone has any information about what might be going in there. please share.
