Gang Conflict in Rogers Park Killed Popular Teacher: Ald.

At the intersection of Morse and Glenwood, where Cynthia Trevillion was shot, flowers and notes mark a make-shift memorial.

    Gang Conflict in Rogers Park Killed Popular Teacher: Ald.
    It would be easy to say Friday night Oct. 13 was unlucky for Cynthia Trevillion. The realty is the tragic event that occurred that night impacted so many more people and highlights an often-overlooked aspect of Chicago's gang violence: it is not just the south and west sides that feel the painful sting of violence.

    NoJoe NoMoore, I see these young men out here
    In these streets everyday
    Out there looking for love
    in the wrong places, which is a gang,which is very sad.
    Every one of these young
    men need a Good mom an
    dad in their lives or some kind of role model to help
    them along the way in life.
    when you are raise in a
    dysfunctional family it will be problematic, an hard.
    It do not have to be a liberal
    thing, or a right wing thing
    It is just about doing the
    right thing about
    cleaning these gangs off our streets.
    Please don't think one time
    that I feel sorry for gangs
    that go out and kill innocent
    people, an please don't
    think that I want the
    Government to take your guns.
    But I hope oneday
    Somebody, anybody can
    come up with the proper
    solution to this epidemic.

    More important than Samantha's thank you for assisting her with our small business suggestions and taking a walking tour of Rogers Park as research for this article, is this message from one of her readers:

    "Replying to @samanthanelson1 @RogersParkCoC
    Ayyyy my old neighborhood! Heartland Cafe is right across the street from the apartment complex I lived in until I was 16".

    Bringing back a positive memory of one of our local businesses, is key to attracting more visitors, and this stimulates our local economy.

    Who doesn't love a great deal? For the next 30 days, Food & Dining is seeking out Chicago's best lunch deals, happy hour specials and inexpensive bites in all forms, all under $10, as we focus our monthly Craving series on Cheap Eats.

    I guess Wazzy thinks that photo was taken at El Famous, which just shows you what he knows about Mexican food. It's a Korean dish from a restaurant in the loop--one of the other restaurants featured in the article. But, man, the tacos in the photo from El Famous look mighty tasty.

    $1.50 tacos at El Famous Burrito was featured on the 5th day of this "Chicago's best cheap eats: 30 days of lunch deals, happy hour specials and more". What I really enjoyed about the article, is that our friend (and Rogers Park resident) Chicago Tribune Food Writer, Bill Daley wrote it.

    We have seen Bill Daley all over the country, but in our neighborhood covering Fung's Chinese Mandarin Cuisine, Heartland Cafe, Rogue Fusion .. and he even stopped by one of our BBQ event fundraisers, at our old Chamber office (7231 N Sheridan Rd)!

    "Sixty cents savings may not seem like much, but it can add up enough to buy four tacos instead of three — at least if you go to El Famous Burrito, a Rogers Park storefront restaurant, on Sundays and Tuesdays. That’s when the $2.10 tacos are $1.50 each. Choose from steak, chicken, pork, ground beef or vegetarian on a corn or flour tortilla. At this price point, go ahead and experiment with different fillings. I tried three: the chicken, the pork and the steak. The chicken and the steak, which had a slightly peppery kick, were topped with shredded lettuce, tomato and shredded cheese. They were good, but the clear standout for me was the pork al pastor. No lettuce or tomato or cheese here, just savory slow-cooked nuggets of meat mixed with diced onion and topped with chopped cilantro. The pork taco was so good that it settled the inner debate on whether to get that fourth taco or not: I did just that, ordering another al pastor. This Rogers Park location is one of 12 El Famous Burrito restaurants in the Chicago area; not all locations offer this deal or this price. (In Mount Prospect, for example, the tacos are $1.25 on Tuesdays.)"

    No bail for men charged with robbing victims met through Grindr app

    "Police arranged an undercover investigation in which an officer posed as someone wanting to meet Thursday afternoon. Once both suspects and the officer were in the gangway, police swarmed in and made the arrest without incident, according to prosecutors and the arrest report.

    Jackson, of the 1500 block of Darrow Avenue in Evanston, was charged with armed robbery with a firearm, attempted robbery with a firearm and unlawful possession of a credit or debit card. Kirkman, of the 11900 block of Washington Avenue in Blue Island, was charged with armed robbery with a firearm and attempted armed robbery with a firearm. He was also charged with solicitation of a sexual act because he arranged to meet one victim for sex in exchange for $150, according to court documents. After his arrest Thursday, state corrections authorities filed a parole violation against Kirkman for a 2013 drug conviction.

    Both men were expected to return to court next week."

    I've always admired this building, with its projecting bay and round-top windows. Standard rectangular windows have been inserted into those great arched openings, but that's not unusual. The brick work is amazing. The mason must have honed the brick by hand to get the correct wedge shapes for the window arches.

    Here's another illustrated detail of two adjacent rooflines on Clark Street. This type of stepped gable is a bit unusual in Chicago. And it's in really poor shape. I rendered the joints as black not because that's the appropriate color, but because all of the mortar has been washed out.

    He is right...nothing more wasteful than a shoddy tuckpointing job. The rough textured brick is a little trickier too.

    Also...if you see someone tuckpointing and there is a huge dustcloud it's illegal in Chicago. The code is to have a vacuum recovery, that dust is fine silica particles and very bad for public health.

Cozy up to the kiln and join me for some hot chocolate and pastries as I head to the Glenwood Avenue Arts District to welcome the newest addition to the Rogers Park arts scene. Follow Me on Friday to Nodd Pottery, 7063 N. Glenwood, this Friday, November 10th, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. After years of directing at other art studios and teaching preschool and kindergarten, Nodd Pottery founder, Sarah Ortlieb (see photo on below), decided that pottery was her true calling. Nodd Pottery is a non-profit organization that provides affordable and accessible art education for our community and its youth. Nodd Pottery offers a regular beginners pottery class called Learning to Center every Monday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings and an after-school enrichment program, “Art About You,” for children between the ages of six and 17.

Nodd Pottery also offers private lessons, community workshops and kiln rental space for local artists. Sarah works with artists of all ages and capacities, including mentally disabled artists for whom she provides commissions that they can use to generate personal income. “I believe strongly in equal opportunity education as well as the importance of the arts in the life-long development of the individual,” says Sarah. “I aim to help others learn the communication skills they need, whether verbal or otherwise, to define and achieve success and happiness in their lives.” Enjoy some hot chocolate, marshmallows and pastries on a chilly late autumn day and check out Sarah’s studio where you’ll find a wide assortment of pottery. Get an early start on your holiday shopping at Nodd Pottery! Follow Me on Friday is one of my efforts to encourage my constituents to sample some of the 49th Ward’s finest restaurants, pubs, businesses and festivals.

Midnight 10/4/17: Several shots fired in the 1800 block of Touhy alley between Estes and Touhy. 3-5 followed by 5-6 about ten minuets later. Police in alley after second incident seemed about as concerned as someone delivering a Pizza. I’ve lived in Rogers Park for 26 years. That might not continue for much longer.

    Maybe Everyblock should cut the Alderman's auto-posting to this site, if there is confusion about who the information or comments are actually coming from.

    If what Helen stated is truly a fact, "A resident posted it on the alderman's FB page and it shows up here, looking as though the alderman posted it", then Everyblock cutting the Alderman's data feed, would actually be a favor to Joe Moore.

  • Why is the public being charged $30 a head to attend an event to heal the experiences of those who have been affected by violence when none of the money is going to victims of violence? Is this a scam event that is emotionally exploiting the victims? How is any of this money going to help real victims?
