Congrats to Schurz High school for taking 3rd place in the Citywide Academic Decathlon

Ladies and gentlemen, let me be, perhaps, the first to tell you a new reason for you to be proud that Schurz High School is in the 45th ward! They are demonstrating the commitment, both from the staff and the students, to becoming leaders in our community academically. Working against increasing obstacles students like Sarai Conteras, who won seven medals in all categories and two trophies, are creating a new profile for the school. I invite you to look into their growing IB program and their Career Ed" offerings when you think about Schurz next time.

Dog barking help?

My neighbor downstairs has a dog who barks nearly constantly if she isn't home. It's an older shepherd mix, and I have exhausted all my options. Talking to her (she said 'the dog is excited and I can do nothing about that'), my landlord said he would talk to her, and cpd said they cannot write a citation. What do I do? I'm a bar manager and my roommate is a third shift emergency room nurse, we cannot live like this...

    No matter what anyone says on this subject, it all comes down to courtesy for your fellow man. Apartments are not easy to live in. Take it from me. I now love my apt. but hate the bad neighbors living next door to me. When I mean bad, I mean really bad. It came to the point of filing battery charges against an individual. No, I will not move because of this. They will not win if that happens since the new renters will have the same problem as I am having now I have noticed that courtesy of any kind is going down the drain. It is all about them, like with the dog barking or even child or children crying or making a lot of noise. Small apts. are always nicer. I know that this does not help the situation. All we can do is hope for the best. Let's hope it won't be moving since then they will win.
