I bought a property here ten years ago and have not seen much improvement. I live in the building. I hope that the Lot Program, or whatever it is called, which allowed EGP residents a shot at buying vacant lots for a buck moves into WGP. There are at least 6 vacant lots on my block. Gardens!

This guy is definitely someone's pet. Very sweet and good on a leash. Found at Central Park & Franklin. Please let me know if you know of anyone missing him.

I visited Pete's and I was impressed. The store is a lot bigger than I thought it was. I didn't get to really shop like I wanted because I had my 4 year old twins with me. Pete's does not have the kid friendly carts where I can put both kids in one cart. Instead they have kid sized carts for kids to push. My kids enjoyed them but I didn't enjoy chasing them. LOL I will go back minus my kids!
Saw on TV that traffic from the espressways will be diverted to streets. If you are driving this week end not only stay off the expressway but be prepared for major arteries to be more conjusted. I heard Western, Cicero, Elston, Eisenhower expy were mentioned as alternative routes.
We meet regularly at the M.L. K. Boys and Girls Club at the corner of Washington Boulevard and Sacramento from 6:00pm from about 6:45pm. On Saturday June 7th, 2014 from 12pm-1pm, several community residents who attend CAPS, along with our CAPS community organizers, and some of our beat cops greeted neighbors in the 3100 Block of West Warren Boulevard. We rang doorbells, passed out community help info (Men's free health screening, free summer lunches, Day and Summer Camp, area Houses of Worship invites, etc). Please join us on Saturday, June 14th, from 10am-1pm at the corner of Kedzie and Lake for the commencement of the 2nd year Fresh Market. Fresh homegrown fruit and vegetables, live local entertainment, and vendors.

I've put in a call to the Alderman and talked to city workers about the state of the playground at St. Louis and Carroll, which currently has two functioning swings, a missing slide, and several burned areas. Kids (3 &4 years old) are hanging from the swings and someone is going to get hurt. If anyone else feels like throwing their two cents in to Alderman Ervin's office, the help is mmuch appreciated. Phone number: 773-533-0900. Thanks!

I can't figure out how to add photos to the previous post. This guy is all black with a white spot on the chest. He's very friendly and not aggressive toward other dogs. Found at Central Park & Franklin. I can't keep him and I don't want to take him to the pound. Any help is appreciated. If anyone knows someone missing him or can foster him, please let me know.
