Dunning Neighborhood Organization Gets Infusion of Public Dollars from Youth Outreach Services?

If the article below is true, I hope that this inflow of the public money into DNO's and the dramatic increase in its membership that followed, will lead to great programs to benefit our youth, especially as it pertains to the after-school programs, like chess, robotics, kids' science, book debate, and/or different kinds of arts. Does anyone know how much public money is involved?

Just Energy

Representatives from Just Energy were just at my door trying to get me to give them a copy of my gas bill. I refused and told them I wasn't interested. They were persistent, but I didn't give them my bill. Any ideas about this? They said that they could get me the lowest rate possible.

  • Craig Born and raised in the city.

    Google the company. They're bad news. They promise lower prices but don't deliver.

I am angry with EveryBlock!

I filled out a survey for EveryBlock because they offered a free gift. The free offer then turned into an offer that said I have to pay shipping and handling. Fine. It's not entirely a gift. I paid that. Later I received an e-mail informing me that I will be receiving more products on a trial basis and I will be billed for those future purchases unless I cancel my membership.

I filled out a survey for EveryBlock because they offered a free gift. The free offer then turned into an offer that said I have to pay shipping and handling. Fine. It's not entirely a gift. I paid that. Later I received an e-mail informing me that I will be receiving more products on a trial basis and I will be billed for those future purchases unless I cancel my membership. If I refused to cooperate and cancel within 15 days they would bill me for the entire "retail" price of the "GIFT" (e-cig starter kit). This is fraud. No membership or sales of products were mentioned by Everyblock. I did not agree to anything but to pay shipping after I found it was not an actual gift. The gift does not exist. It is a sneaky sales method only . I don't know how much you (EveryBlock) make with this program but it is not worth making me angry. People like me not only complain but will advertise against perpetrators of this foul sales method. That would include the offending company and anyone who promotes them.

  • Thanks for the heads up. Thats disgusting. I have learned though- rarely is anything free.

    I should have known better. I am aware of "free" promotions and how some work. I just did not expect to distrust a survey for 'Everyblock', or think it might be bait for an automatic shipment scam. It was not a scam because they auto-ship. It was a scam because the automatic shipments sale was not mentioned or made clear on the shipping and handling sales page.

LSC Elections Monday April 7

Neighbors,

Please ensure that you come out on Monday, April 7th from 6am-7pm and cast your vote for your LSC community representatives. I am running for the LSC at Steinmetz College Prep as a community representative. I am committed to keeping public schools public. It is important that we ensure our public schools have adequate resources to prepare our children for their future.
Please punch 27 for Gilbert Villegas.

Thank you!!

  • Neighbors,

    The grammar school LSC election will occur on April 7th and the high school LSC election will occur on April 8th. CPS didn't notify the candidates that they changed the dates. This is exactly the reason that I am running for the LSC, CPS is not transparent.

Trees in Rutherford Sayre Park

I have noticed that a number of mature trees have been removed from the park. Anyone know why? What's going on?

  • They had to be removed. It was Dutch Elm or another blight. The same problem is afflicting trees around the city.

  • tom

    Emerald Ash Borer infestation is the primary cause. Rutherford Sayre Park Advisory Council has been engaged with Chicago Park District and other organizations to understand the issues and plan a response. Many parks and mature forests throughout the city are suffering. RSPAC is looking for Treekeepers to assist in their work, contact rspac@sbcglobal.net.
