Stop your whining.

I feel happy and proud when i see filming in the hood. It can be a slight temporary inconvenience. Shameless is a fabulous show that shines a light on a different way of life.

  • pbsene Local Business Owner, Tired American

    Right on! It creates way more jobs than just the overpaid actors - I have a good friend whose kids are both working behind the scenes on this show.

  • Pilsen/Heart of Chicago area have been part of movie & tv productions for decades. A few people that recently moved into area whine about many things that are not the real issues and concerns that actually effect our lives. The arts in general have thrived over the last few decades in our community, they add a great benefit to our community, and lives.

    A rare shoot in a neighborhood is one thing. Having a particular part of the neighborhood that is a popular industrial movie set is another. The people who live there get absolutely steamrolled...

    For example, the intersection of Blue Island and 18th is one of those places. There have been multiple shows (too many to count) and over 5 movie shoots there this past year. Each time this happens, the production companies take over entire blocks in the neighborhoods (off set) for their personal parking, trailer parking, and truck parking. Then, adding insult to injury (after kicking all the residents out) they don't even use all of the space.

    This would be a lot better if the Chicago Film Office actually did a service for the people of our City! They are only chartered to roll the red carpet out for outsiders and only have staff to rubber stamp applications given to them by Hollywood. (I confirmed this in multiple calls.) They do not limit shoots at particular locations, make sure the closed space is actually being used, or move the ancillary parking around from shoot-to-shoot. (So the same blocks keep getting hit for parking and catering.) When it rains and shoots are canceled, the "No Parking" zones stay up (even when the streets are empty) and the residents still get ticketed.

https://capitolfax.com/2017/11/28/davis-whacked-over-tax-vote-impact-on-illinois-higher-education/

    News-Gazette ... [US Rep. Rodney Davis], whose congressional district includes the University of Illinois, three other public universities, four private universities or colleges and several community college districts, said he was "cautiously optimistic" the tax break would be retained. I think the total number of universities and colleges in Davis' district is 13.

Where to sell used goods locally?

I would like to get rid of some decent electronics that are used but probably still have some value. (55" TV, laptops, etc).

Anyone know of a good place around Pilsen / Bridgeport that buys and resales used goods? (aside from Craigslist, etc)

THANK Karen Yarbrough for some long needed innovation in Cook County. Went to a seminar last night at Lawndale Community Church.

An excellent speaker Mario spoke on topics important to all of us. He had great slides and a good sense of humor. Everyone was mesmerized.

There are FORMS that will convey property of a deceased for property, FORMS to transfer auto. FORMS to transfer ownership of car. FORMS transfer Bank Account. FORMS to get out of inheritance (property with liens and problems inherited.

Sign up and be notified if there is activity that would affect title to your building.

Innovations by Karen will protect many in the community from being swindled out of their property. So many south and west side properties are demolished because of inability to have clear title.

These transfer forms are FREE and require typical recording fees but NO Lawyer.
Follow the legal process (steps). It is easy.

Call and request a speaker come to your organization., It is free.

go to the website. click http://cookrecorder.com, click videos, click mayor video. see the presentation online.

Many things can be done online.

Well, the area near the intersection of Roosevelt Rd. and Racine, anyway. Ninth-seeded Cary-Grove scored 35 first-half points and held No. 8 St.

Why do some Chicago neighborhoods have 0 murders per 100,000 and mine East Garfield Park 93 per 100,000? Does 11th District Detectives have a 20% success amd 80% failire rate for solving cases? What are good ways to improve the success rate? Is there a corelation between low solve rate and criminals enbolden to committ crime?...and get away with it?

Is one of the problems a bankrupt city, state, county cannot afford lockup amd many criminals are left on the streets to committ even more crime? Is a solution to lockup in a lower cost county, state, country? AND provide educational training?

Should should innovative top brains Tesla, Amazon, Google, air bnb, Uber take a stab at solving inner city problems? It is clear government and social,scientists have failed.

The IG investigated Police Overtime to save $&. Should he investigate solve rate amd find out why it is so low?

We know that pod cameras are not used to their best advantage for solving crime.

Columbus vandalized in Little Italy

"Colón es visto como un héroe por muchos, especialmente por los italiano-americanos, pero es visto como un colonizador asesino de indígenas americanos entre otros."

    Vandalizan estatua de Colón en Little Italy, Chicago
    Un residente de Pilsen fue arrestado el sábado luego de rayar una estatua de Cristóbal Colón con pintura de aerosol en el barrio italo-americano de Little Italy, dijo la Policía de Chicago. Tres hombres fueron descubiertos vandalizando la estatua en Arrigo Park, 801 S.. Loomis St, poco después de la medianoche.

    That's a shame. Defacing public property. You can disagree and speak your mind, but to actually try to destroy a public statue is sickening. Where do you draw the line? And using profanity diminishes your point.

Pilsen Open Studios XV

http://www.chicagotribune.com/hoy/ct-pilsen-artists-open-up-their-studios-on-their-quinceanera-20171020-story.html

"Although most artists are Latino, not everyone uses the same aesthetic and not everyone makes folk art. The Latin American community is just as complex in styles and philosophies as what you are going to find in the Art Institute of Chicago."

    Pilsen artists open up their studios on their 'quinceañera'
    15 years ago, Chicago's Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events designated October as Chicago Artists' Month. They sent a letter to the muralist Héctor Duarte to propose the idea that he open up his workshop to the public, located across the street from the National Museum of Mexican Art, and offer him some publicity in their brochure.
    http://www.chicagotribune.com
  • In the 15 years of the Open Studios, many of us that live our life in Pilsen/ Heart of Chicago area. we are not allowed to visit the art studios. People with mobility disabilities are excluded due to no access to the studios locations. Maybe that should be included in such articles. Many of the businesses on 18th Street exclude those with disabilities on a daily basis,

    Diez y Ocho restaurant 'priced out', re-opens Friday for the last time
    'Diez y Ocho' is the name by which Michael Hernandez calls the neighborhood where he grew up, and it's what he decided to name his burger joint located on 18th St. and Damen Ave., a promising, but short-lived venture that could not survive the increasing cost of commercial space in Pilsen, he said.
