  • Michael Archangel Donald Trump - A compulsive liar.

    @Bill Morton - Happy to read that you believe the results to be more rewarding than the acknowledgements. It seems that your statement does fly in the face of a spate of recent posts on EveryBlock. Like the alderman, you have discovered that self-promotion is one of those necessary evils in politics.

  • Rob

    Bill - seeing as you jumped at the opportunity to claim how involved you were in making this article happen, it certainly doesn't count as something you've supported that we don't know about.

    So again- name one.

Gang Conflict in Rogers Park Killed Popular Teacher: Ald.

At the intersection of Morse and Glenwood, where Cynthia Trevillion was shot, flowers and notes mark a make-shift memorial.

    Gang Conflict in Rogers Park Killed Popular Teacher: Ald.
    It would be easy to say Friday night Oct. 13 was unlucky for Cynthia Trevillion. The realty is the tragic event that occurred that night impacted so many more people and highlights an often-overlooked aspect of Chicago's gang violence: it is not just the south and west sides that feel the painful sting of violence.

    I've always admired this building, with its projecting bay and round-top windows. Standard rectangular windows have been inserted into those great arched openings, but that's not unusual. The brick work is amazing. The mason must have honed the brick by hand to get the correct wedge shapes for the window arches.

    Here's another illustrated detail of two adjacent rooflines on Clark Street. This type of stepped gable is a bit unusual in Chicago. And it's in really poor shape. I rendered the joints as black not because that's the appropriate color, but because all of the mortar has been washed out.

    He is right...nothing more wasteful than a shoddy tuckpointing job. The rough textured brick is a little trickier too.

    Also...if you see someone tuckpointing and there is a huge dustcloud it's illegal in Chicago. The code is to have a vacuum recovery, that dust is fine silica particles and very bad for public health.

Joe Moore, Alderman of Chicago's 49th Ward ad...

Cozy up to the kiln and join me for some hot chocolate and pastries as I head to the Glenwood Avenue Arts District to welcome the newest addition to the Rogers Park arts scene. Follow Me on Friday to Nodd Pottery, 7063 N. Glenwood, this Friday, November 10th, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. After years of directing at other art studios and teaching preschool and kindergarten, Nodd Pottery founder, Sarah Ortlieb (see photo on below), decided that pottery was her true calling. Nodd Pottery is a non-profit organization that provides affordable and accessible art education for our community and its youth. Nodd Pottery offers a regular beginners pottery class called Learning to Center every Monday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings and an after-school enrichment program, “Art About You,” for children between the ages of six and 17. Nodd Pottery’s doors are open Fridays and Saturdays from 1:00 to 6:00 p.m. for “Community Open Studio,” during which members of the community can walk in and exercise their own creativity with technical guidance and assistance. Nodd Pottery also offers private lessons, community workshops and kiln rental space for local artists. Sarah works with artists of all ages and capacities, including mentally disabled artists for whom she provides commissions that they can use to generate personal income. “I believe strongly in equal opportunity education as well as the importance of the arts in the life-long development of the individual,” says Sarah. “I aim to help others learn the communication skills they need, whether verbal or otherwise, to define and achieve success and happiness in their lives.” Enjoy some hot chocolate, marshmallows and pastries on a chilly late autumn day and check out Sarah’s studio where you’ll find a wide assortment of pottery. Get an early start on your holiday shopping at Nodd Pottery! Follow Me on Friday is one of my efforts to encourage my constituents to sample some of the 49th Ward’s finest restaurants, pubs, businesses and festivals. About once or twice a month on my Facebook page, I post the name and location of a local restaurant, pub, business or festival 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. Previous Follow Me on Friday locations include Ethiopian Diamond II, 7537 N.

"I tried in Streeterville and failed," said Max and Benny's founder and President Lester Schlan. In 2006 Schlan had opened a second location at 322 E. Illinois St. but closed after only six months.

Steingold's of Chicago opened in late August in North Center, at 1840 W. Irving Park Road, as Chicago's newest contemporary Jewish deli, or a "newish deli," as it and others of a new generation here and elsewhere are hashtagged on Instagram.

If that sounds ambitious, Steingold recently revealed they're already opening a second location to meet demand. The smaller, walk-up-only Steingold's Station plans to open later this month in Ravenswood Manor, adjacent to the Francisco Brown Line stop at 4642 N. Francisco Ave.

Other notable new Jewish-style delis include Milt's Extra Innings, part of the Milt's Barbecue for the Perplexed family, which just opened in Wrigleyville at 3409 N. Broadway; and Half Sour in the South Loop, also expected by late November.

    "The Jewish way of preparing meat offends you,"

    I see no reason jews can't stun an animal to render them unconscious before slitting there throats. I'm open to hearing logical reasons for this. But have yet to hear one.

    "but apparently not modern commercial meatpacking"

    Never said that.

Illegal guns are killing innocent people

Cynthia Trevillion, 64, a teacher at Waldorf School in Chicago, was shot in the head and fatally wounded in the 6900 block of North Glenwood Avenue near the Morse Red Line station on Oct. 13, 2017, in the Rogers Park neighborhood. 

    Illegal guns are killing innocent people
    This is a tale of two teachers, one who taught in a high-achieving public school on Chicago's South Side and the other in a private school on the North Side. Both were unintended victims of Chicago's escalating gun violence, in neighborhoods some 20 miles apart.
