No street lights on Juneway this week

Was reported many nights ago... When will this be fixed?

  • d3 NOH

    Entire blocks response time is different than individual street lights still, no? Nonetheless it's been a week but it's being fixed as we speak it appears.

  • I don't think so...I've been told 7 business days regarding either, but I'm glad it's getting repaired :)

    Yes I see many who think his words = action. There are those in RP who look at crime and don't see the problem

  • "There are those in RP who look at crime and don't see the problem" Give some examples of persons in RP "who look at crime and don't see the problem". Or is this just a fluffy accusation intended to stir the pot?

Parents please contact your local schools council to support safe passage in Rogers Park.

After the recent shootings and strong armed robberies a small group of concerned parents met to discuss options.
We were advised to take our concerns to local schools principles and the LSC.
There is no formal process in place to establish safe passage in Rogers Park.
The idea is to have this in place for the start of the fall session.
If this effort gains traction the local police commander and Alderman can provide additional information and guidance.
It all starts with parents contacting the LSC and principles.

    Thanks for everyone's help in bringing these valuable resources to Rogers Park.

  • This old posting is from 2016. Is the original poster, Bruce, trying to stir the pot by dragging it up again with hopes of provoking argument and controversy? None of the 14 schools mentioned in the most recent comment are in or near Rogers Park. A posting from two years ago is no longer informative. The new listing of schools isn't relevant to Rogers Park. Old news isn't helpful and unnecessary provocation isn't neighborly. What's your point Bruce?

Hi potential neighbors!

I’m interested in purchasing a home 🏠 between Jonquil and Juneway ( around the 1500 blk ) and was wondering if you could give me some true neighborly feedback on what the neighborhood is really like vs what the Realetor is saying ... Thru my own research it appears 400 plus crimes are listed in the last six months ! YIKES!!
I’ve lived in Chicago neighhoods all my life but always in apt complexes ( l know things happen I’m wondering is this a safe move for my family and I?
Would appreciate any info I can gather before making this big decision. Thanks kindly ,

  • Chicago Waldorf School reviewed

    I went here my entire life though 8th grade and honestly don't recommend it. Firstly, Waldorf teaches you to live in a bubble from the outside world and act like it's still the 1800's. Secondly, they give students no freedom to grow as individuals because you are taught to conform to Waldorf's uniform expectations; having to do your art in the exact same way, have the same weird anti-technology beliefs (honestly, we weren't allowed to talk about movies in elementary school!!), LEARN in the same way... And thirdly, connecting to the whole "learn the same way" aspect, I have learning differences and Waldorf in no way supported that. I got little academic help and teachers had no understanding of what I was going through. I spent my entire childhood thinking that something was wrong with me because no one cared to address and figure out what was up with my academic struggles. It is simply a very sheltered, every-one-has-to-be-the same environment and I am a million times more happy at my current, more progressive school.

    Grace Owner Set To Open New Restaurant Near Loyola
    The Loyola community will soon welcome a restaurant owned by Loyola alumnus Michael Olszewski, who owned recently-closed restaurant Grace. Olszewski plans to open Onward, a casual, fine-dining restaurant, beneath the Hampton Inn Chicago North-Loyola Station on North Sheridan Road. This comes after the sudden closing of the high-end downtown Grace.

  • Glad to hear the significant contingent of Loyola students who are from millionaire families will finally have a decent place to eat!

  • Phill Lucille, give me strength.

    Why the resentment, Omar?

Loyola Redline Mugging This Weekend

I'm not seeing it in the news yet but apparently a young man was mugged Saturday night and has now died from the head trauma he sustained. A friend of his posted this on facebook. "He was found early Saturday morning at the Loyola station in Chicago. He was laying at the bottom of the stairs with his wallet missing and with serious head trauma."
This is all the info I have and just wanted my neighbors to be aware.

  • Jeffrey Littleton Sheridan Park Neighbors Administrator

    It seems beyond unethical, but yea... someone would have to sign a complaint. It's frustrating, heartbreaking this particular case.

  • Michael Archangel Truth is NOT whatever you can get away with!

    Completely agree, Jeffrey.

Free Council for Exceptional Children publications

I have several publications from the Council for Exceptional Children that are free for pick-up. If you message me I can provide a detailed list of them all. Even though the articles are written with Special Needs students in mind they are also applicable to other students and would be a welcome addition to any school library. They are in excellent condition and need a new home.
