We are excited to announce some board appointments we made last night to fill openings we have mid-term on the BCO Board of Directors. President: Mona Yaeger, a BCO board member of several years and past/current membership chair VP: Ann Scholhamer, a BCO board member of several years and past summer social chair We also want to give a warm welcome to 2 new board members filling open seats: - Alexandre Schleider of 2000 Berwyn block - Ron Galant of 2200 Farragut block BIG THANK YOU and welcome to these neighbor volunteers. Your willingness to jump in when needed is so appreciated! Our thanks goes out to those who served in these roles before them - William Ferguson who stepped down from president but remains with us in a Board of Directors seat, and Sabine Cummins who stepped down from VP and off the board after several years. Thank you for your positive contributions to Beautiful Bowmanville! Mid term appointments like this are ratified at the next General Meeting of the BCO membership, which is December 14. The term for the current BCO Board of Directors extends through October 2018.

Suspicious Mini Cooper

Just saw a Mini Cooper driving down Sunnyside, then up Hoyne, shining a very bright light at the back of random parked cars. Any idea why someone would do this?

  • I'm at Argyle and Leavitt, so in the general vicinity and I know there was a lost dog in the neighborhood last night. They may have been looking for him under cars.

  • Very plausible. I did the same thing several years ago when a neighbor's dog went missing.

  • Tina D. Lincoln Square to North Park

    Could be the repo man

    Half Acre's Balmoral Taproom Is a Beer Oasis
    Like most taprooms, Half Acre's new spot in Lincoln Square (2050 W. Balmoral Ave.) prioritizes function (drinking) over form. Sure, there's some neon art eye candy, and the pint glasses have an appealing, brightly-colored logo printed on them. But it's meant to be a place to really delve into Half Acre's extended brew catalog.
