look at all of the curb work being done, look at all the sewer work, look at the street repaving, the 23rd ward has the FASTEST graffiti removal of any ward, even with only 2 tree trimming trucks the trees are getting trimmed when scheduled, the length of time it takes it the cities fault, the garbage is picked up on schedule, the only way to get businesses is with tif funds, but if those are used the same people that complain about lack of business are the same ones that complain that tif funds were used, there are no schools that have been shut down in the ward and over crowding is minimal, the lack of police is the mayor both present and pasts fault, Kennedy HS is no longer a school that has major student bused in it is mostly students inside a border, it also has a IB program which is more advanced than honors and I am proud to say my daughter, nephew and cousin are all enrolled in and my daughter is getting all A's and I attribute that to the education she received at Byrne, there is a blue ribbon campaign to show support for the police Zalewski was out tying ribbons to trees and light posts and also paid for most of them including for people in the 13th ward until Quinn started supplying them also, were Arteaga or Goral out there doing this? how many ribbons did they tie up???? and while I am at it, how many ribbons did you put up Chuck Hughes?? the new east end of the ward is getting those services that they were not getting before and the residents know this, and Arteaga is taking credit for these services getting done, drive through the east end and find graffiti, if its there call the ward office and see how quick it is removed, find it in another ward call that office and see it takes days to get it removed, street light outages are taken care of quickly also, I dare all of the fake Arteaga posters to point out where I am wrong on any of these, can not be done, these are issues not personal attacks, prove me wrong

  • Chuck I know you're a real person from GR and as much as you dislike Arteaga you don't talk as much sheet as some of these fake profiles. No one can come up with that much and be that annoying which leads me to believe that's his ex-CM. I make fun of Paulino's weight that's about it. I take care of my body so it disgusts me how people let themselves go.

    Chuck we need a big strong man around us tomorrow just in case anyone tries anything. Can we count on you? We don't bite unless you want us to

    Supposedly, another Starbuck's is due to open at the corner of Archer and Cicero (to 'catch the coming/going Midway traffic", I read somewhere).

    Much of the crowd that stops at a Starbuck's for their 'Double-soy-decaf-hold-the-sugar-Cappuccinos' are the crowd that shops at Whole Foods.

    If two- count 'em, 2-- Starbucks (and we all know how expensive their drinks and other store items are-- items that we don't REALLY need to survive- coffee addicts not included here) that will exist only several blocks apart can make it in this area, why not one Whole Foods (that sells food--and lots of more nutritious, organic food, that we all need to survive-- that would 'do a body good"...and a family too)? And what about catching those health-minded Midway tourists to buy their 'health-food' at a
    nearby W.F.'s.?

  • Chet 606 Rogers Park, NOHavana, CE

    There are plenty of people in and out of AH that would appreciate quality food. Plus the traffic to/from Midway and commuters who drive to AH to jump on the Orange Line. Not everyone needs or is expected to shop at WF, but for those that want to, bring it on!
