Schurz High School

Thank you for taking down that awful iron fence that kept your campus a closed prison compound for years. You've simply transformed the intersection of Milwaukee and Addison and made the neighborhood feel a little more welcoming! Cheers!

  • It's a beautiful school! Now they need to figure out a traffic pattern for dropping kids off because stopping in the middle of Addison and having a long conversation before they close the car door to stroll to class is not working.

  • I agree, Tom. Happy that the fence is down. But taking it down cost a bundle and putting it up in the first place couldn't've been cheap, either. I'd love to know the reasoning behind why it was put up to begin with. Actually, I'd like to know if the...

    I agree, Tom. Happy that the fence is down. But taking it down cost a bundle and putting it up in the first place couldn't've been cheap, either.

I'd fire him/her. If they no longer work for CPS I'd rehire him/her and give them a huge raise. When he/she gets used to the bigger income I'd fire him/her.

Two Loose Pit Bulls 3400 Block Kolmar

I went to walk my dogs this morning and was greeted by a pair of chunky looking dark grey pitbulls wandering loose on my block. They didn't seem aggressive but they were definitely interested in coming towards me and my dogs so I didn't want to find out. One of them appeared to have a collar and the other had white markings around its neck. I called 311 but if these are your dogs, come over to the Kilbourn park area and fetch them before they get into any more trouble.

  • They are from the 3500 block of kilbourn the police were following them 10 minutes ago as I drove by. They are outside of their gate trying to get back in. I hope they don't get shot. 😕

  • Yeah I wouldn't want to see the dogs get hurt. That said, whoever owns them needs to be more responsible and keep them somewhere they can't get out.
