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.

  • Live from RP: you may be correct about the perps but either way--be on the alert as there seem to be way too many robberies by groups of young people in east RP.

  • Also be careful in West Ridge where there have been more than 180 assaults, thefts, robberies and other crimes in just the month of March this year. April isn't looking any better with more than 50 similar crimes in just the first two weeks. All of that was before the weather started to warm up too. Be alert. That's way too much crime.

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.

    CHICAGO - A scam commonly used by thieves to target unsuspecting individuals has now been used on a major corporation.
