Vincent is lost

Let’s help him get home safe . I Saw this sign near Arthur and Bosworth.

  • Nan

    Please post (on EB) in all area neighborhoods. Also - if Vincent's parents /owners see this - or if you have a way to communicate with them. please tell them to let neighbors know. Most lost pets (especially on EB) are ultimately found very near to their home. Do we know if Vincent has a collar with ID tag? Is he chipped? Please keep us updated.

  • Has anyone called to.see if Vincent is still.missing? Sometimes people neglect to take down their flyers.

    New Tax On Uber, Lyft Would Pay For CTA Improvements, Rahm Says
    CITY HALL - The city is set to raise taxes on Uber or Lyft rides by 29 percent next year to fund improvements to CTA bus and train lines, Mayor Rahm Emanuel said Tuesday. Emanuel, who is set to introduce his 2018 budget Wednesday, gave a brief preview of his spending plan Tuesday while celebrating the expansion of Walgreens' Chicago workforce by 300 employees.

  • Yes..those stats makes more sense.

    Those stats are false. Uber drivers are the worst on so many levels . They cant drive or they just ignore common sense driving rules. Park in crosswalks to pick up fares when they can easily park in the No Parking zone before all corners. Not registered or licensed ....

    Those stats are false. Uber drivers are the worst on so many levels . They cant drive or they just ignore common sense driving rules. Park in crosswalks to pick up fares when they can easily park in the No Parking zone before all corners. Not registered or licensed . Taking away living wages away from cab drivers who are registered, tested for license and need to purchase medallions in order to do biz in the city. It’s BS so Rahm’s brother can make even mo money. What’s Rahm getting in exchange?

Joe Moore and the Participatory Budget

Dear Alderman Moore,

In light of the tragic events in our neighborhood, any chance we can submit new ideas for the Participatory budget?

I for one would like to recommend the following:

Putting the full amount of the fund behind closing the "shooting window." Let's pay our officers a half hour of transition time extra, so that there is no gap in police force on our streets.

OR

If the Dunkin Donuts is that infested with drug deals, let's rent...

Putting the full amount of the fund behind closing the "shooting window." Let's pay our officers a half hour of transition time extra, so that there is no gap in police force on our streets.

OR

If the Dunkin Donuts is that infested with drug deals, let's rent out that space. Turn it into a police sub station. Or a community check in.

OR

Let's put the funds towards LIGHTING Glenwood. And putting up more cameras.

Just a few ideas that would mean a lot more than some piece of art on the beach.

  • Tired of Liars Sick and Tired of Self Serving Lying Politicians

    " You get the feeling that many of these posts are the product of woozy-making medication, talk radio, and a steady diet of Law & Order reruns."

    ...or of people who actually give a rats fanny about community safety and aren't ashamed to stand up to poor decision making

  • Michael Archangel Donald Trump - A compulsive liar.

    @Tired of Liars - Another fine example of a straw man argument. There are many people in our community who care deeply about community safety and actually do something about it. Aside from your periodic diatribes, in what ways are you actually involved with improving public safety? Are you simply someone who prefers to whine, wring your hands and place blame or are you active in some meaningful way.

    Can you enlighten us with your accomplishments?

Illegal guns are killing innocent people

Cynthia Trevillion, 64, a teacher at Waldorf School in Chicago, was shot in the head and fatally wounded in the 6900 block of North Glenwood Avenue near the Morse Red Line station on Oct. 13, 2017, in the Rogers Park neighborhood. 

    Illegal guns are killing innocent people
    This is a tale of two teachers, one who taught in a high-achieving public school on Chicago's South Side and the other in a private school on the North Side. Both were unintended victims of Chicago's escalating gun violence, in neighborhoods some 20 miles apart.

  • Bruce_ Comment by TBD, whom you've muted

    Back to the topic, gangs are killing people for the right to distribute opiates.

  • Michael Archangel Donald Trump - A compulsive liar.

    @Bruce_ - My goodness, after long last we finally agree on something!

    You are correct that largely (not exclusively) gangs seek to control areas to solidify their hold on illegal drug sales. To hold those areas, they use illegal weapons. Because gangs are more fragmented now then they have ever been. Guns are in the hands of teens who have neither the knowledge or the discipline to carry them.

Who were the intended targets.

Our neighborhood has seen the pattern before. Innocent people get shot.
The intended targets sing show tunes and taunt on utube.
More unrelated shootings follow.
No arrest.
Eventually intended target is hit.
Repeat.

Seriously Rogers Park?

Violence has always been an issue in Rogers Park for as long as I can remember. It has improved in the last 10 years, but Morse Avenue needs help, it really does. It needs viable businesses that people can frequent and meanwhile not have to fear for your life. Morse Avenue needs to be revitalized in ways that parts of Andersonville and Edgewater have been in recent years. With gang bangers loitering, intimidating people, driving by, shooting each other and in this case passersby, businesses are not going to bother setting up shop on Morse Avenue. Further, people need to report crime and not just walk by the BS and say nothing. People also need to stop buying political BS from those who have allowed slumlords to rule in Rogers Park for so long. That too contributes to the issues in the community. The lack of jobs and real opportunities for youth is yet another contributor. Absent parents and poor school systems. The list goes on and on. There are many reasons for the gang violence in Rogers Park and the reasons don't include block groups trying to make their neighborhoods safe.

As mentioned at a community rally tonight (designed to bring people together), WE the people need to rise up and develop shared strategies to combat the violence and offer solutions and assistance to our youth. Standing up at a rally and blaming others is never going to solve the problem people. You are smart enough to realize that, I'm sure of it! What I witnessed tonight is sad! I hope this community learns from the mistakes of the past and it can come together to solve the gang violence and the problems it creates in Rogers Park. Community block groups have worked to clean up certain areas of this community. That's a fact! Why blame them people? I understand people are pissed about Trump and the economic and political climate, but to blame block groups is ridiculous. There has to be a better way to channel your frustration and anger. Just sayin...

  • Bruce_ Comment by TBD, whom you've muted

    I see you are aligned with the gangs that killed the teacher.

  • Michael Archangel Donald Trump - A compulsive liar.

    @Bruce_ - I asked you to expand on your previous post and you create a straw man argument in response?

    So, you state I am aligned with the gangs? What is your evidence for that? Please provide any pro-gang quote that I have made.

    Come one Bruce_, time to back up your irresponsible claim.
