Church 50th & Kedvale

What do you guys know about the church on the corner of 50th and Kedvale? I'll be the first person to tell you to respect others, especially what they believe in, however in this case I have to say I really think they have no respect for the neighbors. Having service at 1:00 am, really??? In the middle of service you have cars burning rubber for 30 mins straight and taking kids joy riding, while a bunch yell out go...

What do you guys know about the church on the corner of 50th and Kedvale? I'll be the first person to tell you to respect others, especially what they believe in, however in this case I have to say I really think they have no respect for the neighbors. Having service at 1:00 am, really??? In the middle of service you have cars burning rubber for 30 mins straight and taking kids joy riding, while a bunch yell out go faster go faster. I had to call the police on Wednesday/Thursday night because it was like 1:30 AM and I couldn't sleep. It's not a one time incident, it's an on going problem that I've discussed with the neighbors but how do you tell a church, hey it's cool you like to have service really late and all but keep it down when you guys are coming out because this is a working class neighborhood and I wouldn't like to tell my boss church goers didn't let me sleep last night.

    I know last year they were on that TLC show...American Gypsy....the father of the girl they showed is a minister, so if that's the case why all the noise and being disrespectful? Isn't church supposed to be a holy place, God's house? What respectful religion is allowing that to go on at 1 in the morning? Call Alderman Burke office.

  • I kind of figured they were Gypsies, I respect whatever they believe in but I think they should also consider that the church is in a residential area. They should be respectful of those that live nearby. I truly wish I knew why they had service so late, if they...

    I kind of figured they were Gypsies, I respect whatever they believe in but I think they should also consider that the church is in a residential area. They should be respectful of those that live nearby. I truly wish I knew why they had service so late, if they wanted to be loud i could care less if it happened at 4 o clock in the afternoon. As I stated earlier I work long hours and on the weekend I have my business I go to . I already have a sleeping problem i don't need another reason to stay up.

SW-side Continues to Bury Head in Sand as Gov Quinn Gives $50,000,000 for Trails

As a former resident of Archer Heights and a former board member of the Archer Heights Civic Association, .... I told you so!

http://www.dot.il.gov/press/1%2030%2013%20ITEP%20-%20RELEASE.pdf

When will the leaders of the Sw-side wake up? When will the people of the SW-side (Archer Heights, Garfield Ridge, Clearing) wake up? There was a reason why I championed for a bicycle and nature path for many years. There was a reason why I repeatedly sought to meet with Ald.Burke, Ald. Zalewski, Cong. Lipinski. There...

As a former resident of Archer Heights and a former board member of the Archer Heights Civic Association, .... I told you so!

http://www.dot.il.gov/press/1%2030%2013%20ITEP%20-%20RELEASE.pdf

When will the leaders of the Sw-side wake up? When will the people of the SW-side (Archer Heights, Garfield Ridge, Clearing) wake up? There was a reason why I championed for a bicycle and nature path for many years. There was a reason why I repeatedly sought to meet with Ald.Burke, Ald. Zalewski, Cong. Lipinski. There was a reason why I repeatedly tried to get the 'leaders' of the AHCA to support a bicycle path. If only for the reason to give energetic youth someplace to blow off steam rather than by breaking into garages and other 'crime'. But then the local papers wouldn't have much to write about.

Everyone knows (or they find out the hard way after years of trying) that to get anything done in Archer Heights one needs to have the 'leaders' figuratively present the idea on a platter of promissory votes to who ever is the alderman at the time (pick one from the above). The more pomposity the better. Yes?

One prostitute, two prostitute, three prostitute, four. Apparently there isn't enough time between counting prostitutes on 47th & Cicero or trying to get a 'senior discount' from the local politicians to champion any other cause.

The SW-side, Archer Heights specifically is the land where politicians go to retire before they retire. It's a community where one with just a HS education is comfortable. Check out the last census. Wasn't Gov Quinn a guest at the AHCA meeting earlier this year?

A bicycle path people. It's easy. Have the conversation, interest and preliminary design on the shelf ready to go for moments like this!

  • New Alderman its time....

  • Hi Chet- while I hold a masters in education I am completely clueless on how things work on the political level.. I know we all know we need help on the southwest side, more police officers, investments, parks, beautification but what can we do as a community? I would love to be more involved

    Lizalynch, IMO

    - Many talented people wanting to make a comfortable & safe life for themselves, families & neighbors.
    - The BB generation overshadowed the next gen, X and still enjoy the power. Those now in their 30s are the next leaders and officers.
    - The notion of leaders and officers dies with the current generation though not yet.

    - The letters SKI on one's last name guaranteed an election victory on the SW-side (Lipinski & son, Laski, Zalewski & son). Ald Z will probably silence the ski to appeal to the Hispanic community. He does not speak Polish.
    - The name Burke installs fear and a sort of pride that the SW-side has the strongest alderman.
    - Too much blind faith in religion & white adult males with a title & a sport coat. My suggestion to the AHCA to invite then Senator Obama was answered with a cold stare from one of the legacy AHCA presidents.
    - The current voting generation is comfortable with the above, no longer ride bikes, prefers senior discounts to an espresso, does not send their kids to local schools.

    - People in power do not like an educated populace. Educated people ask questions, demand change & vote accordingly. Therefore:
    1. Little or no critical news nor opinion in local papers (Brighton Park Life, SouthWest Chicago Post). No presence of the Chgo Reader W of Damen.
    2. Deliberate attempt to squash a local Chamber of Commerce so alderman can deal direct with businesses.
    3. The Archer Heights Civic Association claims to have the interests of the community but rather is a front group for the politicians. Never a lady president and the current officers repeatedly get elected.
    4. Brighton Park and Garfield Ridge community organizations also staffed with legacy leaders who really haven't done much for the age group between grade school and seniors.
    5. AHCA restricts their FB page to members in good standing.

    What to do? I still have ideas and available for discussion but the ideas really belong to those in the SW-side.

Article from the April Archer Heights Civic Association Newsletter.

The Greater Chicago Food Depository informed The Archer Heights Civic Asociation that a Model Pantry has been established for residents in Archer Heights who may be in need.

At the on-site food pantry residents of our neighborhood, both individuals and families in need of food assistance will be able to choose from a variety of fresh produce and shelf-stable items. The area covered by this food pantry is slightly different from our community’s boundary: North – Stevenson Expressway, South – 54th Street, East – Central Park Ave. (3600 West), and West – Knox (4600 West) but the actual Archer Heights boundary is Cicero Avenue – 4800 West.

The location of the pantry is in the Greater Chicago Food Depository – 4100 W. Ann Lurie Place (use the Keeler Avenue entrance) and will be open every Saturday starting March 8th from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM. Archer Heights residents will be allowed one visit per month and must bring proof of residency. For more information please call 773-247-FOOD.

  • This is very good information. Everybody in Archer Heights needs to pass this info around as some people are afraid or embarrassed to admit they need help. By spreading the word, people can anonymously go to the food pantry.

    Thank you AHG for posting this.

Does anyone out there know the best way to unblock a bathtub drain. Mine is soooooo slow, it's driving me nuts......thanks!

    Chet......I'll take it easy on the boiling water now that it's going pretty good. I didn't use bleach, I opted for vinegar. I'll use the baking soda and vinegar regularly now. Thanks for all your good advice.

Blocked tub drain

Can't thank everyone enough for the great advice.......so, here's what I did. I did the hangar thing (gag) and got some gunk (gag again) then I loaded the drain with about a quart of vinegar.......then taking another suggestion I boiled more water then is in my pool (ok, not really, but lots) and after letting the vinegar sit for two hours I dumped the boiling water down and lo and behold, I have a very well running drain!!!!! Thanks again everyone.....as you all can tell I never had this problem before. Now that I know how to handle it, I won't have this problem again!!!!

Status Hearing for 5173 South Archer

On Tuesday April 29, 2014 at 9:30 a.m. in Room 1107 in the Daley Center there will be a hearing in regards to the bar located on the corner of Archer and Kostner which has been shut down since Sept 2013.

Need neighboring support to keep this bar shut down. This bar has been a neighborhood problem since it opened and even though they had security 3 people were shot outside of the bar in Sept 2013.

  • Kath Kath

    What was the name of the bar? Sounds like its a nuisance

  • Start a petition I can help....

  • The name of the bar is El Palenque and it was shut down in Sept 2013 for 70 building code violations. Looking for people to attend the court hearing on Tues April 29, 2014 and Yes would love to get a petition started to keep this bar closed.
