Driver Fatally Struck Cyclist Raul Ortiz-Gomez, 41, in West Town

Ogden is a direct diagonal route from the North Side to the Southwest Sides. In December 2013, a drunk driver fatally struck Hector Avalos, 28, on the 2500 block of West Ogden, 2.5 miles southwest of yesterday’s crash site, as Avalos was biking from his job as a cook at a River North restaurant.

Ortiz-Gomez, who lived on the 2600 block of South Harding in Little Village, was transported to Northwestern Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Problems getting 911 response?

This past week a 911 Supervisor filed a SPECIAL ATTENTION for the address that is problematic.

With a SPECIAL ATTENTION CPD will have to do more.

Never talk to the front line operator. Always speak to a Supervisor. Ask what additional things they can do when 911 OEMC calls are not responded to by CPD.

You can foia the special attentions. Then throw them to the IG. Perhaps the Ig will get better results than we residents who do not get 911 responses that are meaningful.

It's too soon to decide that audiences have gotten complacent, though-and you can still find plenty of worthwhile shows. The city's blues clubs kick into overdrive during the fest, of course (see the Reader's listings for more on them).

    I went to the first one in 1980, when I worked in the Loop--I don't recall how much it cost except it was much cheaper, you could try a bigger variety before you either filled up or ran out of tickets, and much of what was there was unique. Great lunchtime alternative to the ubiquitous Loop cookie-cutter Greek "coffee shop" luncheonettes. On the last day I remember I had a 25-cent ticket remaining, it was warm out, and one of the vendors didn't want to cart perishables back. So I got a flat of 12 containers of strawberry Yoplait (a brand and style new to Chicago, which had only Dannon at the time), put it in the office fridge, and drove it home after work. (But to this day I can't stand strawberry yogurt),

    Nowadays, I go only when my knees can take standing around for hours and there's a musical act I want to go see. You have to jockey for a table to put your food & drink down while you stand, nearly half the items are fast-food from well-known restaurants available across the area year-round; and there are those stupid tickets! You can't buy only as many as you want, because the booklets contain odd quantities that are too few or too many. I end up either forgoing something I'd really wanted, compromising and eating something I wasn't really craving, or having leftover scrip to languish in a drawer (not knowing if they'd be usable next year) or to give to strangers. Last time we went (to see the Chieftains), so few items appealed to us that we actually ended up at a real restaurant in Millennium Park with normal portions, tables & chairs, metal utensils, glasses and servers. And we spent no more than had we eaten the same quantity of food standing up, spilling stuff on our clothes and sweltering,

2. Anybody know WHY someone was shot?

3. Anybody know WHY someone was shot and injured today?

4. anybody know WHY a car was burned in the middle of the block?

Anyone know WHY CPD is failing the residents living on this block? Can u speculate? It defies logic. There are cameras 7114, 194, 7113 nearby. The highly touted strategic decision camera room is in the 11th District just steps from the Commanders' Office. Aerial satellite views show the entire route of start and end where bad guys go. Still CPD makes no arrests most of the time.

Do we have an 17% murder solve rate meaning 83% failure rate? Do we have a less than 30% crime solving meaning 70% failure rate. Those kinds of data mean MANY should be cut loose and sharper tacks hired. Maybe US military peacekeepers who are accustomed to working in bad areas like Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria could do a better job than what we have now. They would not be AFRAID which is the most common excuse we get.

Can u speculate as to WHY our police are not able to SOLVE crime issues here in EGP? Plz chatter here. WE NEED HELP solving this chronic problem frought with red tape, institutional barriers (like talking to a brick wall)...

There are better, faster, cheaper ways to problem solve than what we got. Can u contribute to the conversation here? THANKS

It has taken quite a few years to get rats under control. Josie Cruze has helped us for about 5 years and now we have very few rats!

it is an effort involving: 1. Baiting, 2. Getting Garbage cans. #. Replacing damaged cans. 4. having Safer clean alleys, streets, parkways, vacant lots. 5. Getting weed spray.6. getting forestry to pick up branches. 7. getting flydup0ed tires, construction debris, trees, etc removed.

We now are at the point where we need CPd to issue citations for can theft, can rummaging, littering, using COMMUNITY CONCERNS and CITY SERVICES directive to continually have Beat and Patrol cars order the city service we need as well as gang/drug issues.

Lots of old row-houses with Salvation Army's vacant facility on Monroe, vacant Church of the Epiphany and Chase House on Ashland and a new industrial tear-down at Adams and Laflin. Lots of reasons for the rat population to grow.
