Looking for an occasional "odd-jobber"

Looking for someone who can help me now and then. Where is a good place to find someone like this? Craigslist wants to charge me way too much to post this kind of ad on their list

  • Of course be careful and ask them for references

  • Pam Spacek rogers park

    But I don't need a "handyman". That's why I said odd-jobber. Have things I need help with that don't fall under handyman category. I did text one guy, but otherwise did not find what I was looking for I need someone who can help me with assorted things I can't do myself

Though the recent cold and rain makes it hard...

Though the recent cold and rain makes it hard to believe, spring truly is just around the corner. Winter is finally relinquishing its icy grip and it’s time to clean up the old leaves and debris that have accumulated over the last five months. Join me for the 28th annual 49th Ward SPRING CLEAN-UP! This year’s clean-up takes place on Saturday, May 5th. We’ll meet at 9:00 a.m. for coffee and rolls at my 49th Ward Service Office, 7356 N. Greenview (at Jarvis), and then fan out across the neighborhood, picking up trash, cutting down weeds and planting flowers. If you have an area you want to work, that’s great! Otherwise, we’ll assign you to an area that needs attention. We’ll return to my office at 12:00 noon for a fabulous “Taste of the 49th Ward” with food donated from a vast array of 49th Ward restaurants, guaranteed to satisfy every culinary taste. In an effort to make the event as sustainable as possible, this year’s Taste of the 49th Ward buffet will go zero-waste. We will provide reusable silverware and water bottle refill stations to reduce single-use items. Compost will be provided by Urban Canopy’s Compost Club, the same organization that my office uses to compost food scraps in our kitchen, and everything else will be completely recyclable. We ask that you register in advance so we can plan for enough food and equipment for the day. To register and/or suggest a location that needs cleaning, visit: https://www.ward49.com/ward-city-services/will-you-help-spruce-up-the-neighborhood-on-may-5th-fill-out-this-form/

Learn how to appeal your property tax assessment and possibly lower your tax bill at a special workshop sponsored by Cook County Commissioner Larry Suffredin, Cook County Assessor Joe Berrios and my office. The workshop will be held on Wednesday, May 2nd, 6:30 p.m., at the Loyola Park Fieldhouse, 1230 W. Greenleaf (in the first floor gymnasium). The assessed value of your property is one of the factors that determine the amount of property taxes you pay. This assessed value is determined by the Cook County Assessor. The Assessor’s office this week mailed notices of the assessments to every property owner in Rogers Park. If you believe your property assessment is improper, you have a right to appeal that assessment. At the workshop, you will learn how the assessment process works, how to file an appeal with the County Assessor’s office and how an appeal is granted. Staff from the Assessor’s office will be available to answer questions and help complete appeal forms. For more information, visit: https://www.ward49.com/news/workshop-on-how-to-appeal-your-property-tax-assessment-to-be-held-next-wednesday/

  • Bruce didn't state his comment as fact Live, and I really don't think giving his opinion on the topic, will put us in any serious danger. However,I do agree with you completely that circulating false information is destructive.

  • Please read the entire thread before posting inappropriately argumentative comments. In particular read the second comment which begins as "good neighbor - This seems to be the same trio that Jeenna McCord commented about earlier".

Pedestrian hit & run

My son was hit by a light silver Honda sedan when crossing the alley on Ardmore and Glenwood. The vehicle left the scene without even checking to see how bad the injuries were.

If you witnessed the accident, please contact me.

Thank you.

  • So sorry to hear this. I suggest that you post the message to Edgewater, since it wasn’t technically in Rogers Park.

  • I am glad to hear your son is alright.

While not disclosing Spruce’s name, the unsealed warrant contained other clues to his identity: both his current apartment number at the Ashland address as well as his previous address in the 1900 block of West Fargo Avenue. Public records listed both addresses for him.

    The timeworn apartment building in Chicago's Rogers Park neighborhood hardly looks like the corporate headquarters of one of the world's largest shipping companies. But for a few recent months, that's essentially what it became - at least as far as the U.S. Postal Service was concerned.

    UPS, USPS and OOPS
    Every year, millions of Americans troop to the post office for the mundane task of diverting their mail to a new address. But the mundane turned extraordinary in the case of Dushaun Spruce. Last October, Spruce allegedly filed a request to shift mail from 55 Glenlake Parkway NE in Atlanta to Spruce's one-bedroom apartment in Rogers Park.

Has anyone else been followed recently?

I was followed home by a group of 3 people yesterday evening, and just wanted to see if it had happened to anyone else recently.I went slowly and even made a couple stops along the way and each time they were hanging back waiting for me. I've lived here for several years and have never had something like this happen before. It happened on Sheridan around 5:45. I can provide more details if necessary.

  • Someone should check out the group that hangs out on Lunt between Clark and Ashland

  • steven beckerman Lifelong resident of the Rogers Park neighborhood.

    I've had friends in Lincoln Square, and Lakeview, both single women, report similar situations recently, In one case she asked him loudly why he was following her, and he began a verbally abusive barrage, but by that time it had gained the attention of passersby, and neighbors.

Do you want to feel good again about democrac...

Do you want to feel good again about democracy and voting? Each year, I receive over $1 million from the City's "Aldermanic Menu" Program to spend at my discretion on infrastructure improvements in the ward. Rather than me deciding how to spend the money, I turn the decision-making power over to the residents of my ward through a process known as “participatory budgeting.” Community volunteers come up with proposed project ideas and the entire ward votes on the proposals they would most like to see implemented. I agree to abide by the results of the vote. The process for determining how to spend next year’s budget begins NOW. Over the next two weeks, I will host six “Neighborhood Assemblies” (five in English and one in Spanish) throughout the 49th Ward where people learn about Participatory Budgeting and begin to brainstorm ideas on projects they would like to see in the ward. The first assembly takes place TONIGHT (Monday, April 23rd), 7:00 p.m., at Sullivan High School, 6631 N. Bosworth (between North Shore and Albion). Come early before the meeting at 6:30 p.m. and join us for free pizza, courtesy of J.B. Alberto's. https://www.ward49.com/news/decide-how-to-spend-1-million-of-your-money-participatory-budgeting-begins-tonight/

    Decide how to spend $1 million of YOUR money; Participatory Budgeting begins tonight
    Dear Neighbor, Do you want to feel good again about democracy and voting? The next round of participatory budgeting is about to begin! This is when you and your neighbors decide how to spend over $1 million in improvements for the 49th Ward.

Feds: False Change Of Address Moved UPS Headquarters To Rogers Park Apartment

Apartment 2 at 6750 N. Ashland Av. became the address for UPS corporate headquarters in October, after the man who lives inside filled out a change of address form at a post office, according to a federal affidavit. UPS corporate mail then was redirected and delivered to the apartment.

    Feds: False Change Of Address Moved UPS Headquarters To Rogers Park Apartment
    CHICAGO (CBS) - UPS headquarters might be in Atlanta, but for almost three months, hundreds if not thousands of pieces of its corporate mail were delivered to a small unassuming garden apartment in the Rogers Park neighborhood in Chicago. That corporate mail included tens of thousands of dollars in business checks.
