Assault/Mugging

Just found out this morning my daughter's boyfriend was attacked Monday evening around 11pm near Portage Park school. As he was walking home someone came up behind him and punched him in his head. They then grabbed him, pushed him face down into the ground and robbed him - took everything including his jacked and shoes. It was a black male in his late teens early 20s.

Just found out this morning my daughter's boyfriend was attacked Monday evening around 11pm near Portage Park school. As he was walking home someone came up behind him and punched him in his head. They then grabbed him, pushed him face down into the ground and robbed him - took everything including his jacked and shoes. It was a black male in his late teens early 20s. Rather sad that someone can't even walk through the neighbor hood without being in danger.
And, before anyone asks - no, it was not reported to the police. I would pressure him to do so, however numerous past experiences dealing with the police have been more frustrating rather than reassuring. Since my family moved in to Portage Park six years ago we've had the cars broken into 3 times, my father punched in his face from someone with road-rage, someone get out of their car to threaten me, my son both approached by a sexual predator (when he was underage) and held up at gun point and robbed and now my daughter's boyfriend being attacked. I don't see the area getting any better - rather seems that things are getting worse.
Be careful and aware of your surroundings while walking around - and try to walk with someone instead of alone. These scumbags are all over.

I have the worst tooth ache I've ever experienced.. this tooth (back molar "first molar") is giving me an unbearable headache. (I think the molar is infected... I was told it needed to have a root canal when I went to Dental Dreams a few months back... but I refused the root canal because it was so expensive... and decided to wait and see.... well now I realize I should have had the darn molar pulled back then.... I just didn't want to then because I'm in my early 20s and was scared off of extracting the tooth by my dentist... who said that if I pull it. There would be a gap.. and my teeth would all shift and then they will all start getting weaker and sooner or later I'd be young and missing a lot of teeth...)

I called Precision Dental on Diversey... and they estimated on the phone that an extraction would be about $200-300 for new patients... I need something more reasonable... like less than $100 or a place that accepts the medical card (which I just received in the mail a little while ago)

Any recommendations?
Thanks!

    I think that the Mayor's office forced the timing of the Milwaukee Av CSP expressly to affect the election. And I wouldn't be surprised if the Mayor gave Garrido a running start with prior notice.

The show runs March 20 - April 12 at Filament Theatre (4041 N Milwaukee). Wildly comedic and fast-paced, this world premiere production is perfect for ages 12 and up. If you're looking to see a little bit more storefront theatre in Chicago, then this is a great opportunity for you at a very reasonable price.

About the show:
Inspired by last year's relentless Chicago winter (and let's face it, the one currently drawing to a close hasn't been so great either), Duplicity Ensemble combines two of Shakespeare's greatest plays to create the ultimate antidote for cabin fever at Filament Theatre. When four young lovers chance upon into a quiet mountain cabin while looking for shelter from a snowstorm, life is turned upside-down as hearts get broken, muffins get eaten and a play is read in this modern comic mash-up of The Winter's Tale and A Midsummer Night's Dream. Once everything has been spun backwards, can it be set right again?

Performed at Filament Theatre, A Midwinter Night's Tale runs ~ 90 minutes.

    @Lothario, they bother me when they have the TV's too loud. Its difficult to talk to the people you go to the restaurant with. I have seen people ask that they be turned down without much success. My friend figured out how to use his smartphone as a remote control device and successfully turned it down himself. We were sitting at the table directly below the TV since that was the only one left.

    I remember the saying from the 80's I think...if its too loud, you're too old. So its quite possible that's my problem too.

For the first time this evening my wife and I attended a portage park helping hands event. During the first break John Arena joined the party. It was great to see him join neighborhood events.

I am curious though.

Nick Sposato why did you not attend a benefit for a school in your new ward? You are not off to a very good start. You may not have "started" yet but I expect to see you show up.

    You win though, let's see how bad he messes this up. He was voted in and deserves the chance to prove me right. A friend assures me he is a good guy and has known him for years. At the very least it will provide some entertainment. I am looking forward to eating my words though. This is one of those times I hope it happens.

    Well PAC, we don't have 4 years to let him prove himself. Chuy needs to hit the ground running with a solid plan in place in order to be effective, but he's already laying excuses on us that Rahm won't share the information. Rahm is not the gatekeeper of the books. They're public records, and with a little effort, any citizen should be able to access them. Any one of the aldermen/women who were presented with the budget and voted on it should have that document, as well as reports for the actual spending against that budget. Look at Finance Committee meeting minutes! Any voter who would buy this lame excuse is just a fool. Chuy sells himself as a consensus builder, so why doesn't "Mr Consensus" have access to this info?
    Let's give the guy who's already improving the city's financial position the opportunity to continue to root out waste and bring business investment to Chicago. He's a "hard a**" who is the perfect personality type needed to turn this 20+ year old financial mess around. I don't want another whiner who's already hiding behind lame excuses before he's even elected!

Chicago Ballet Center Design Competition

Harrington College of Design has organized an interior design competition for the new Chicago Ballet Center facilities at 4041 N Milwaukee (across from the Portage Theater). Designers' presentations and jury selection of the winning design will be Sunday, March 29. The event will begin at 3 with designers presentations starting at 3:30.

Come by and see the innovative, creative designs that will transform a wide open, blank space to an engaging and safe place for creativity to flourish.

This is just the beginning!

  • We are planning to add youth and adult flamenco and tap classes in the new space. One studio will have a floor specifically designed for those classes. Other additions to our ballet and pointe classes include Broadway jazz, hip hop, contemporary and yoga. Voice, cello, piano, viola, violin and guitar music classes will also be on our schedule.
    These are very exciting times!

I think that is a really good cop

So if IU had taken the bus home from work last night he could have reported this from ground level.

I think this is the Sgt that actually used to stop people who ran stop signs and that the rowdy young folks and older rowdies knew at well so not sure why she is having to work nights but maybe she likes sleeping days or that is a career move. My experiance though is the Krats have no knowledge of what goes on at night and one gets stuck there if doing a job in a way that causes waves.

Let us be honest with ourselves folks. Some of us are getting old and we would enjoy a bit of that even if we are gettin a little crotchety. Maybe even the same sort of thing in Polish, Spanish, Greek, German or Russian.

Wondering though if our plans to become a theatre and arts district are viewed by Rham as bumping stomachs with his Ravenswood, Uptown, Lakeview plans that seem to me to be a grab for extending the real estate values of the Gold Coast.

https://www.dnainfo.com/chicago/20150327/uptown/mayor-rahm-emanuel-says-hes-not-all-talk-on-uptown-music-district-vision

For myself, if I did not have family duties to attend to in Houston, I would simply find a way to isolate or cocoon myself here. Or maybe just plan some retreats to Lake Geneva or Puerta Vallerta to avoid the crowds.

To be clear though I do think a vote for Garrido is a vote do nothing me first thinking by people afraid of change, cops and people who know cops so think they will have a secondary connection.

Me, Arena has no reason to listen to me or to IU, Real Kenji or fake Kenji or any of the rest of us but he does. And I am sure he gets tired of hearing our wishes for Cadillac solutions when we give him a Dodge Dart budget. He does listen though then goes and sit though all that boring s*&^ of all the other reps propeled by their own me first constituents. Times are changing though and soon our own me first clammer may well be can we listen to each other and navigate change without running each other down on Milwaukee.

I think there is room here for Rham's vision over there and our vision up around here.

A cop that will not listen and only pays attention to business owners is not likely to listen to any of us though I sort of feel like he would want to I just do not think it is in his makeup.

Imagine standing in your back yard and you look up, and 48 windows are looking back at you?

Imagine standing in your back yard and you look up, and 48 windows are looking back at you from the 48 unit apartment building at the end of you block. How will you feel laying out to get some sun, or your kids playing in the splash pool? Never going to happen on your block, maybe not, but would you wish that on anybody? John Arena loves density, and if there is an empty lot or tired old commercial building, a closed church nearby, you are extremely vulnerable. Our old alderman's "spot zoning" was bad enough, but Arena is bad up-zoning on steroids. Before you vote, ask yourself, COULD YOU BE NEXT?

    St. Pascal School's summer program is very popular. I hope that if you are looking for a camp or program for your children this summer, you consider this one.
