A close friend of mine applied for the Handicapped signs be placed in front of his home. They denied it because they said he has a garage. Well there are three other people on this block that have the signs in front of their homes and each has a 2 1/2 car garage, one on next block same thing! He sent in an appeal and is waiting the results, if he is denied again, then what, The garage he has is used for storage, 8 people living in the house all fully grown. He said he saw the Dept of Finance van come by on this last Monday, but he was on his way to a Dr's appt and could not stop and talk to the man.

It is a long walk 1 1/2 blocks to get to his house with walker or crutches.
Thank you

  • Stay on it, Frederick. Do contact Duckworth and every relevant public servant/figure/group you can; it takes momentum and time, but you'll ultimately prevail.

    Count, if the man can't walk the block and a half from car to home then, I'm sorry, he doesn't seem safe to be driving. From cancer or heart trouble, even. Driving is not a passive activity and it shouldn't be treated as such. It is a terrible thing that people don't need to be re-tested on the roads...especially if they are seeking a handicapped permit.

  • Fair point, Empty.

    The scenario you suggest is more likely true for a new business owner with little or no experience as a food service owner. An experienced business owner better know what's required or they are setting themselves up to fail.

    Failing an inspection will likely cost the new business owner money in fines...not a good way to start.

  • Mute Mute Me

    Theres gotta be stats out there on how many not opened yet business fail initial inspections vs passes.

  • Prussing Elementary School reviewed by a parent

    My children went here for a few years and we eventually transferred to a different school suburbs. When we arrived in the suburbs, my children were below grade level in reading and math. I was told they were above average and on level by their teachers at Prussing.

Any recommendations on medicar?

I broke my ankle and had surgery on it last Monday. I have a dr's appt on the 20th and needless to say, I can't walk and I have 6 steps into and out of my house. I need to call a medicar to get me down the steps and to the dr. Any recommendations on who to call?

Thanks!

  • I would see if any of your neighbors could help you.

  • Sorry about your ankle.
    You could call ambulance company like elite. They will help you.
    Good luck

Hey people! We need a radiator removed/capped and hauled away. Any/all recommendations appreciated. Thanks!
