Old news?!?!

Has anybody else noticed that EveryBlock detectors are picking up articles from 2012-2013???

  • Yes. The recap email they send out had an article about the fire at the field house at Indian Boundary park. I think was in 2012.

  • L

    Were they all articles that came from the Booster's FB feed?

  • Shelly Lifelong suburbanite, now in South Lakeview.

434 Melrose

Does anyone know the status of the unfinished construction site at that location? There was supposed to have been a hearing at City Council in regard to it.

    I've reviewed the published agendas of both the Zoning and the Housing committees from August 2014 through January 2015 and could find no mention of this address for a zoning change or any other city council or committee action. Because of the election, there will not be any city council meetings or committee meetings in February. There is a Housing committee hearing scheduled for 3/11 10am and two Zoning Committee Hearings next month: 3/12 and 3/17 , both staring at 10am in Council Chambers,before the 10am 3/18 City Council meeting. No agendas for these committee meetings are available yet. Shortly after 3/1 some of the agendas for the March meetings should start to appear. You can check the web site:
    https://chicago.legistar.com/Calendar.aspx for any additional committee meeting dates, changes in times/locations, and the meeting agendas. The current or new alderman for the ward may know more about the property before any hearing action. The press coverage about the property are old stories at:

    So sad but oh well.

  • Simple, pay the rent or get the F out. By not paying the rent, the bar owners stole money from the property owner, like a common thief! So long, bring in somebody new.

Summer Options for 6 year old child

I'm looking for daycare options for my 6 year old for this upcoming summer. I work from 8 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday. The Neighborhood Boys & Girls Club doesn't start until 8 am but I have to be at work by 8 am. I need to pick up as late as 6 pm on some days. Any suggestions/recommendations for high quality group childcare for a 6 year old in the area? Looking for entire summer, not just short summer camps. Thank you!

  • mike Return Chicagoan circa 1996

    Hamlin park offers day camps during the summer that I have sent my boys to. It's not too expensive and you need to sign up online. It is offered through the Chicago park district.

    Put the delinquent in a boot camp or ymca or bible study thank you very much.

Elizabeth using Kickstarter launch two new culinary concepts

According to the fundraising page's description, the two miniature restaurants will share a small space at 2928 N. Broadway. Regan said the idea to use it as a multipurpose area came as an afterthought when they considered that the bakery would operate only during the day.

In the financially forbidding restaurant world, launching a new place can be tough. That's why Elizabeth Restaurant (4835 N. Western, Unit D, 773-681-0651) is asking fans to pitch in.

Mercury Theater Chicago announced Friday that neighbor and tenant Cullen's Bar & Grill (3741 N. Southport Ave.) is now closed.

After five years as one of Chicago's most notable vegan restaurants, Karyn's on Green (130 S. Green St.) will shut its doors Sunday.

This Sunday, Ada St. (1664 N. Ada St., 773-697-7069) will break out a pretty special bottle to celebrate its third year in business.

Lots of police cars at Belmont (in internet cafe btw Halsted and Clark) 5Feb

Does anyone know what happened yesterday (Monday) around 12:45pm on Belmont? I was waiting for the Belmont bus, two guys were interacting...one white, young guy was yelling loud at the black guy with a white fur coat on that he made him lose $1000 and miss his flight, that he was "legit, a taxpayer" and the other guy was according to him " a drug dealer". He was making a phone call. Ten minutes later about eight cop cars (marked...

He was making a phone call. Ten minutes later about eight cop cars (marked and unmarked) pull up and one detective goes into the internet cafe with his gun drawn. I saw the black guy being talk to by other cops on the street. My bus pulled up just then. It was intense. Lots of commotion. ???

    Hey Beebee, do you know what the name of that internet cafe was?

  • It seemed to close soon after the police stormed it Feb 5, 2013 (two years ago). Can't remember the name, but it had the word INTERNET in block letters across the front of it. It was just west of the alley in between Halsted and Clark on the northside of Belmont Avenue.

Story on parenting and transgendered children

I'm a graduate student and reporter for the Medill News Service at Northwestern University.

I'm a graduate student and reporter for the Medill News Service at Northwestern University. I am currently working on a story about the successes and challenges of being the parent of a transgendered child. I am looking for a parent (and if possible their transgendered child) who would be willing to speak with me about their life experiences. The story would be composed of a 400-600 word article and a 2 minute video piece. So ideally, I would like to have you speak quickly to me on camera. It is possible to be on camera anonymously, although not preferred. The piece will be published on our website: http://news.medill.northwestern.edu/chicago/ and CanTV (the public access channel) for a day. If you are interested or know someone who may be a good contact, I would very much appreciate a message back.
Thanks, Julie

  • Hi Julie,
    While I don't have a child, I just wanted to mention that generally the correct term is considered "transgender" instead of "transgendered."

    http://www.glaad.org/reference/transgender
    (See problematic terms)

    Good luck with your research!

  • Julie, a good friend of mine is willing to speak with you. You didn't leave a phone number for her to call you, but she has said I may share her email address with you so you can contact her. kfgrobman@live.com

Found a Ring

Yesterday I found a ring in the middle of the street on the intersection of Clark & Diversy. This seems to be a wedding ring & would like to return it to its rightful owner. I know this is a long shot, but I figured I'd try anyway. I'm not going to post a pic of it but if you recently lost your ring and believe it is yours please send me a private message with a detailed description or better yet a pic. Feel free to forward this.
