Bad smell in my apartment

This is a weird post. There is a bad smell in my apartment, right inside my door, as soon as I enter. I thought it was my trash, I had made chicken, but I took the trash out and it's still there. I had the window cracked open yesterday but I still smell it.

The hallways are not cleaned or maintained in this building. The management said they were having an exterminator come around last week for maintenance, but I never saw them when I was home.

Any ideas what it could be? How to get rid of a smell? It's been 3 days now.

  • rkp

    You mentioned taking out the trash after cooking chicken. Is it possible that the store packaging that contained the raw chicken leaked a bit. Doesn't take much of the juices to turn rancid and smell. You might try a little bleach based cleaner on the floor by the doorway.

  • rkp

    Alice, I found your comment quite appropriate. It seems that this so named "Captain" was just fishing for a reaction as opposed to offering a constructive suggestion.

UWF says "No" to Joe Moore

United Working Families released their endorsements yesterday and took a pass on our self-proclaimed Progressive Alderman in the 49th Ward

This group alignment includes the SEIU Healthcare workers and the Chicago Teacher's Union.

  • Nico Pericolo Formerly known as Nick Danger

    robin it was the christians who invented antisemitism. The Romans couldn't have cared less. It was the Peter and Paul debate about circumcism and that stuff that drove the wedge between old-fashioned Jews and the Jews who got sparked by the Rabbi Jesus. Some Jews thought he was cool and others didn't. The Romans had nothing to do with it. It was different groups of Jews who had the big megillah over Jesus.

You are Invited to a 49th Ward Aldermanic Candidate Forum!

The 49th Ward Republican Organization is sponsoring an aldermanic candidate forum on Sunday, January 25 from 3 to 4:30 pm. This will be the opportunity to hear directly from the candidates about their vision for the Ward and how they plan to respond to the many challenges facing the City of Chicago. The public will also have the opportunity to ask questions of the candidates. While aldermanic candidate Don Gordon has already agreed to participate, incumbent Joe Moore told me that he’ll “take a pass.” Nonetheless, I’m hoping members of the Ward’s Democratic organization can convince the alderman to change his mind so voters have the opportunity to compare their ideas and ask questions of both!

The Aldermanic Candidate forum will be held at the Loyola Park Fieldhouse at 1230 W. Greenleaf.

In addition to hearing from Don (and hopefully Joe), we will be reaching out to the other candidates who were denied the opportunity to appear on the ballot through the challenge process to see if they’d like to participate as well. I give Don credit for this idea, and agree with him that their ideas for the future of our City and Ward merit public consideration.

I hope to see you there!

  • Reid Hyams X-ART Entertainment / Century 21 Universal

    I'm sure Don was only referring to Chicago elected officials, based on the fact it's not in the stars that he'll ever be a Chicago elected official.

    More later... I see you have other posts that I haven't, and will not have time to read tonight. Never fear, I will catch up :)

    But I did see somewhere that you never made it Scott? I thought it was a given that you'd be there.

He is not electable and he doesn't have a clue about what is important to us who live in the 49th Ward. He is an egghead who teaches part time at Northwestern University but doesn't understand what we need in the Ward. We need an Alderman like Joe Moore who listens to us, understands us and who represents us at City Council. Gordon is an egghead.

Chicago Point of View - 2nd Place Winner

I pay homage to the grimy hustlers that jumped hurtles for this lethal game All the casualties sustained It’s a shame and now
bystanders are getting involved Problem solved if we admonish these fools and polish the tools we use for self examination
Instead of learning gunplay we play with alliteration And it takes patience to deal with an anonymous foe but we are too stodgy to work to our utmost In fact we never trust folks So a salute to those who can woman or man it Takes courage to step up so we hide behind facades and we dress up as something we are not We were taught to love but it’s something we forgot in the rush of life like the husband that no longer trusts his wife Despite the fact that we’ve been together for years humanity is often crippled by fear

A few key points:

"Most of Moore's donors provided addresses outside of the ward he represents, and many included business owners, developers and investors."

"But some contributors recently won the support of the alderman at City Hall for concessions to lift liquor moratoriums and open businesses."

"Pradeep Patel, who know (sic) owns two liquor stores in the ward, won the support of Moore to open Hops and Grapes in the former Isam's Liquor Store on Sheridan Road.
A frequent contributor, Patel donated $1,000 at the end of December."

"Go Grocer, an independent grocery chain that intends to open in Loyola University's Granada Center, also won the support of Moore, who sponsored an ordinance to lift a liquor moratorium on the block so the store could sell packaged goods. The company donated $500 to the alderman in December."

"In addition, James Yoo, owner of the Morse Avenue strip mall that recently evicted all of its tenants, donated $500 in November."

We can all come to our own conclusions; however, I do know it is an ongoing concern of many that important decisions are being made about the future of Rogers Park based on political profitability rather than the good of the community.

Health Care

Hello, I am a student journalist writing a story on healthcare. I'm looking for someone who has experienced difficulty with health records not being sent to a multiple hospitals in a timely manner, or vice versa (through electronic means).

  • Another problem is that different healthcare providers have different kinds of software that don't "talk" to each other, necessitating printing out and re-entering information. That is one way mistakes can be made as well. I hope some brilliant geek out there comes up with a universal medical software platform. It would contribute to patient safety and patient satisfaction!

Question for Republican Party Guest Don Gordon

Why are you opposing (per your Facebook posting) the President Obama National Library in Chicago? He is the nation's first African-American and Chicagoan President. You don't want his library on park land? Chicago park land already has a golf course (Waveland), two green houses (Lincoln and Garfield Parks), a zoo (Lincoln Park), a children's museum (Peggy Notebart), two music stages (Petrillo and Pritzker), an aquarium, planetarium, the Field Museum, Museum of Science and Industry and snack shops (Osterman and Montrose) on park land. Why are you opposing a Presidential Library for Barack Obama? I want to hear your answer at the Republican Party event for you at Loyola Park on Sunday.

If you're into darts, this is the place for you. The Oasis has three dart boards and sponsors its own dart league. You better come prepared because the competition is fierce!

The Oasis also offers a professionally built pool table with custom balls and cues and Sunday night karaoke. They also offer free Wi-Fi and charging for your smart phones, so you can't go wrong. In short, it's a place you go to hang out with your neighbors.

Come and meet Ben the owner on Friday and join us for food and drink at this favorite Rogers Park hangout.

"Follow Me on Friday" is one of my efforts to encourage my constituents to sample some of the 49th Ward's finest restaurants, pubs and businesses. Each week on my Facebook page, I post the name and location of a local restaurant, pub or business where I'll be hanging out after work on Friday. The establishment offers specials for all my Facebook followers and their friends. It's a great opportunity for you to check out one of the fine local 49th Ward businesses you may not have visited before.

    Don Gordon showed, he did some nice history lecturing, and for the most part couldn't manage to answer anything about what he would do specifically if elected. After an hour and a half, these were the only things I took from it. If anyone feels I'm leaving anything out, I'm sure he and Gernhardt are gonna put the whole thing on youtube, and I encourage everyone to watch it and try to actually find the few times Gordon answered a question with specifics regarding Rogers Park.

    On the budget - after a whole lot of "we have to find a way" the only things he said specifically that he'd do- He'd raise the retirement age and reduce the cost of living adjustment, and he'd eliminate pensions for elected officials (yeah, that last one has a real chance of happening)

    After another nice lecture with the help from one of his students in the audience about TIF, and he said the first thing he'd do is introduce a moratorium on creating new districts, and then would support a forensic audit of the program.

    Of course, then came Gale. After unnecessarily making a comparison to the tragedy of Our Lady of Angels, He needed to be asked several times what he would do about it, and the answer was to use social capital to involve parents to create change. Okay, sure, I guess.

    The subject shifted to the revitalization of Morse, and Gordon said it was all due to Pritzker, then started lecturing about the difference between the RPBA and RPCoC. At that point it was 4:30, I had given him the hour and a half this was supposed to go for, he didn't use it to talk about the 49th ward, so I left.

    One last thing - much like Don not showing up on Everyblock where he couldn't control the situation, questions had to be submitted written on index cards... "because of the way things have been going on social media"

    One more thing - charter schools and an elected school board. He supports a hybrid school board, members elected by both the mayor and the LSCs.

    There was a time when we could trust that the alderman from the 49th would support teachers, local public schools, unions and want more accountability from City Hall and more citizen input on education (elected board) rather than create rubber stamp bodies of control whose duty is grant contracts to the wired and bow to the the hierarchy of bosses.

FACT: The pension fund for retired Chicago teachers stands at risk of collapse. The city’s four funds for other retired city workers are short by $19.5 billion. At least one of the funds is in peril of running out of money in less than a decade. And starting in 2015, the city will be required by the state to make far larger contributions to the funds, which could leave it hundreds of millions of dollars in the red — as much as it would cost to pay 4,300 police officers to patrol the streets for a year.

SOURCE: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/08/06/us/chicago-sees-pension-crisis-drawing-near.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0

Which means Alderman Moore has put the tax-payers on the hook for more future billions borrowing in 2015. Much like the few billion he voted "Yes" to borrow in 2014.

The next 20 years my a$$. The hammer drops this year. Alderman Moore picked a bad year to go against the Unions.

    Yes, crime happens here (where in the city won't it happen?), but its a level I personally feel comfortable with. I'm on my phone or I'd find the link which shows you crime stats for any given area. You'll see that this area is toward the lower end.

    The general vibe of that area is good, but it's slowly getting gentrified.

    There is a lot of traffic noise on ridge, but my bedroom was a room or two back (when I used to live directly on ridge). That was tolerable for me.

    I've also roamed the streets of this neighborhood at all hours, including the ones you list. I've never really felt threatened.

    I've been in Chicago almost 10 years, 7 of which have been spent exclusively in the area you're talking about, so I'm happy to provide any info about anything you're looking for. :)

Supposedly the clientele will be visiting parents of Loyola students. That sounds fine for about five weeks out of the year, but what about the other 47 weeks?? Visions of the Purple Hotel in Lincolnwood are dancing in my head: Student parties? Lots of people on and out for various assignations? I'm betting it's yet another Loyola dorm in five years. The two- way traffic designation for Albion concerns a lot of us as well, since a similar reconfiguration on Arthur and Sheridan has been confusing and dangerous to drivers and pedestrians. OH--no new parking spaces will be created for the hotel--supposedly the parking structure at Arthur and Sheridan is "underutilized." Could we see some data on that? If you got Moore's email, take a look at the building specs and come to the meeting on Tuesday.

I invite you to attend a community meeting I'm hosting to review plans for the construction of a new three-story, mixed use residential apartment building at 1240-44 W. Devon. The meeting will take place next Tuesday, January 27th, 7:00 p.m., at the Heartland Health Center, 1300 W. Devon, in the conference room.

The planned development complies with the existng B3-2 zoning on the site and requires no zoning relief from the City. The development team, Three Corners Development, agreed to meet with the community to share their plans and to consider any reasonable suggestions put forth by the community residents.

The site is located between Magnolia and Lakewood Avenues and was formerly a parking lot for the old Weinstein Funeral Home. Three Corners acquired the property in 2013 as part of their development of the new $1.4 million Heartland Health Center, which recently opened a block west of this location.

The new building will consist of 7,000 square feet of storefront commercial retail space on the ground floor, which can be subdivided if necessary into two or more commercial spaces. Ten multi-family residential apartment rental units will be constructed on the second and third floor, consisting of six three-bedroom units and four two-bedroom units.

Additionally, a ground floor residential patio and 11 parking spaces will be located at the rear of the property. The total project will be approximately 20,000 square feet in size.

The developers tell me they will pursue LEED certification for the new construction, a prestigious distinction awarded to projects built in a way that improves energy savings, water efficiency, indoor environmental quality, and CO2 emissions reduction.

The developers plan to start construction in the spring with an anticipated completion date by the end of this year.

The renderings for the development can be found in the photos below.

Rate hike on beach parking

i was so disgusted to find that the hourly rate for parking in the beach parking lot next to Loyola Park has now gone up from $1.25 per hour to $1.75 an hour! Thank you, to the past and current mayor, and to all our aldermen, who sat on their hands while this parking thing might have been stopped!

    I saw they have a mobile app for the meters now. Has anyone tried it? Perhaps you could use that in the morning from your home for the last hour, but heaven forbid you forget one day! Even though the deal has long since been made, I too still feel bitter and entitled to gripe about the fees. My cousin used to work for the company that owns the meters, and I still tease him about it. Makes the holidays that much more fun!

  • Thanks for the info, Mei! I will check into the mobile app. I wonder how that would work? I suppose the meter workers would have to check your QR code on your city sticker to see if you actually paid, or some other such thing.

.............Tell us the good that you can do if elected.

stopping yellow book drop offs

any one have any idea how to stop getting these phone books? my entire building is on the opt out list for the last 10 years but every year they drop the books in front. i know some people want them, but we don't!

i have called every year to say stop, but it hasn't... any insight would be appreciated.

  • Mei

    I feel all these unsolicited mailers should be illegal. If you don't want it and didn't ask for it, they're littering! Their company taglines should be, "Here, you throw this out."

    I do use the newspaper adds to line my students' desks when we paint or do something messy, and phone books become paper mache. Also good for drying flowers. However, I will now try opting out. There's never a shortage of paper for student crafts if you pay attention

  • Our package delivery guys and mailman use the phone books to hide our packages. So far (5 years) no thefts.

MAXIMIZING YOUR TAX DEDUCTIONS AND TAX BREAKS AS A U.S. HOMEOWNER

U.S. TAX CODE OFFERS BREAKS TO HOMEOWNERS

This article is current for the 2014 tax year and should not be considered tax advice. For tax-related questions or mortgage strategy related to your individual tax liability, speak with a licensed accountant.

For more information visit http://acg-funding.com

It's January 2015 and, for Americans, the 2014 tax year has concluded.

Within weeks, U.S. consumers will begin receiving such tax-related forms as the W-2, the 1099, and, for homeowners, the 1098, which is also known as the Mortgage Interest Statement.

The U.S. tax code offers incentives to homeowners, and by taking advantage of these breaks, 1040-filing citizens can maximize their financial investment in homeownership.

Whether a home is financed via a mortgage, or paid-in-full with cash, there are a multitude of tax-savings opportunities associated with owning a home -- even at current mortgage rates which are the lowest since May 2013.

Of course, every homeowner's financial situation is different, so please consult with a tax professional regarding your individual tax liability...

CMSA Students Win Big last weekend!

As we all reflected on Dr. King's legacy and the work he committed to addressing inequality, racism, and discrimination, it's important that we not forget about his vision of the "beloved community" and the role it would play in further generating necessary change throughout our nation.

Two of our CMSA students, Sidney Hunt and Ololade Taiwo, wrote brilliant poems that reflect on Dr. King's vision of "beloved community" that won first place and runner-up in Roosevelt University's Auditorium Theatre's "Too Hot to Handel" student poetry competition. Their poetry submissions were two of hundreds of submissions from students throughout CPS. This was also the first year that both the first place and runner-up winners came from the same school!
Sidney and Ololade had the honor of performing their poems at the Saturday and Sunday "Too Hot to Handel: Jazz Gospel Messiah" performances at the Auditorium theatre for audiences of over 2,400 people, and their poems are currently on display in the theatre.

Seen a ghost? Angel? Saint? Want to tell a journalist about it?

Hi!

I am reporter and Masters journalism student.

I am working on a story concerning the experiences by some who say they have seen or have encountered supernatural spirits (ghosts, holy beings, saints, etc).

Does this apply to you? Would you be willing to tell me about your encounter(s)?

Any help would be appreciated. I am working on deadline.

If your interview is used, it would be published on a Chicago news website.

Please contact me for more information.

Thank you!

Meter Parking on Morse

In the past 3 wks, twice the parking meter station east of the el and just east of Albertos and Act One on the North side of Morse, has not been functional. At that location, It is suggested that you find a "nearby" parking meter station. There are no other stations within that 1 block area in which to pay. Who is servicing this meter? How can I be assured that I won't have to hunt down a meter over a block away from this station to get a sticker for my windshield.

  • There was no reason for it.

Stolen Packages

Be advised that someone is stealing packages left outside of buildings, or in unsecured front entrances. Granted, choosing the "No Signature Needed" option is a convenience, but not when somebody walks off with your deliveries from UPS, etc.

    Back in December on a weekday around 11am, I observed 3 teenagers, african american male, remove a package from a home on the south side of Touhy just west of Ridge. They walked a few doors down and ducked into a vestibule to open it. I called 911 at the point they picked it up, and was giving detailed descriptions of them as they were opening it. They split before the police arrived; the box was an Amazon box but contained items they weren't interested in. Not sure if the police apprehended them but I had to try. This type of crime angers me and I'm sorry for those who have been victims.

  • 60660Gal loves Edgewater,

    Packages can be big, bulky heavy or a combo of those 3. Having them delivered to an alternate address then means those of us without a vechicle have to deal with getting back to our place. Not a lot of fun when the package is 40 lbs and its snowing out!

Recycling?

I am renting a place in Edgewater and the building does not have a Recycling container (forcing me to use the neighbors across the alley way - shhh). Does anyone know if there is a place I can call to have a recycling container dropped off at my location?

  • jldoolittle West Ridge resident since 2005

    FYI - The recycling dumpsters at the east end of Warren Park at the Pratt entrance are no longer there. That leaves one recycling center on Ravenswood 1 block north of Devon in RP/WR that I know about. Does anyone know if there are others in RP/WR?

    That's it for the area, at Ravenswood and Devon. City officials seem ignoring the issue lately.

Follow up on networking with neighbors

.Overwhelmed a few weeks ago on the response to a lost pet, I offered an additional resource of my quickly growing nonprofit community radio station. A local nurse and yoga therapist responded, and tomorrow she will be talking about yoga, wellness and fibromyalgia. Come and join in the show tomorrow at 11am at que4.org. the invitation remains to anyone doing something positive for the community. No cost, just you talking about something or someone doing something for the community. These are supposed to be the people's airwaves. Q4 is leading that revolution.
