“But now we have a viable site—the current police academy,” Chacon said. Police training will move to a new $95 million training facility 4301 W. Chicago Ave. in the Garfield Park community in about 2020; the fire academy will move there, too.

The current police academy sits adjacent to Whitney Young Magnet High School at 211 S. Laflin St., which ranks among the nation’s top schools but has admission standards too high for many nearby students to achieve.

As another option, officials could transform Spaulding School at 1628 W. Washington Blvd. into a high school, said May Toy, president of the Skinner Park Association. She added...

Community activists also have examined Montefiore at 1310 S. Ashland Ave. as an option, Toy said. The CPS, however, reached an agreement to sell the building...

Piano teacher?

Hi, I'm looking for a piano teacher for my five year old. Any recommendations? We have a piano, so we're able to have someone come to us, if needed. Thanks!

  • These are great ideas, thank you! I also found a site, takelessons.com, where you can look within an area code and see reviews for a teacher, too. I'm going to check out the places you recommended, as well. Thank you!

  • Follow-up, I tried the takelessons.com and had a miserable experience. Wouldn't stop harassing me after I created a profile, and when I did try to enlist a teacher, the teacher backed out within 30 minutes. Was told I would have someone try and help find a replacement, but no one ever contacted me and I called to get a refund. So, just FYI! Now looking at other options.

Looking for a good honest plumber for Pilsen

Some friends of mine on 21st street are having a clogged toilet problem. Three-story house, it's a problem with the toilet on the second floor, only. Seems isolated to that stack. They need a good plumber, but obv. like everyone else, they're budget-minded folks.

Obnoxious Loudness in Pilsen

How can people in certain parts of Pilsen tolerate Banda music and drunkeness in the middle of the night? How? The is a total lack of regard for people who have wake up early. Moreover, if you call the police, you become a target for their animosity. Does anyone know how to silence these folks without becoming a target?

  • Ringo712 Block Captain

    I live in La Villita so it's the same if not more so. It comes with the territory for living around Mexican Immigrants. It's a different way of life you need to get used to if you want to live Amongst different cultures

  • I've been here 6 years..a transplanted South Chicagoan.. Its a shame gentrification has softened peoples ears.. There are bigger fish to fry..but keep complaining about Banda music.. The assault rifles down Cermak Road during school hours bring perspective..

Vandals damage Holy Family window; five other churches hit

“It reminds us to always be forgiving and understand people are coming from other places,” said Linda Lavery as she helped distribute food to the homeless at Holy Family Church, 1080 W. Roosevelt Rd. “At Christmas time, people do have a lot of emotional issues. We are called to be forgiving.”

At St. Procopius Church, 1641 S. Allport St., a thief broke through a glass panel in a side door to steal money from the candle box, Sylvia Pels, church operations director, said. “A surveillance camera photographed the thief, but could not capture his face.”

Pels said the St. Procopius burglary was at 2 a.m. Dec. 4. At 9:30 a.m. the same day, a thief broke into St. Pius Parish, 1919 S. Ashland Ave. No one at St. Pius could be reached for comment.

On Dec. 7, someone tried to break into St. Francis of Assisi Parish, 813 W. Roosevelt Rd., smashing a glass panel in a front door. “The alarm was on, so they left,” the pastor, Rev. Walter Mallo, said.

At Old St. Pat’s, 700 W. Adams St., sometime between 10 p.m. Dec. 20 and 10 a.m. the following morning, someone smashed a glass block window but did not enter the church, police said.

Fr. Gabriel said he was told vandals also broke two windows at the former St. Adalbert Church, 1650 W. 17th St., which has been purchased by an arts group. Many windows in the church and its adjacent buildings were already boarded up.

    Gazette Chicago " Vandals damage Holy Family window; five other churches hit
    January 4, 2018 Christmas joy was tempered by sadness at six houses of worship hit in December by vandals and would-be thieves: Holy Family, Old St. Patrick's, St. Francis of Assisi, St. Pius, St. Procopius, and St. Adalbert churches.

Pilsen Alliance not so innocent

The Pilsen Alliance isn't so innocent when it comes to race.

  • As a real estate professional ANYWHERE you can't "steer". Meaning you can't direct people to a neighborhood if the intention is good or bad.
    Example: You can't direct a Mexican family to Pilsen simply because they're Mexican and Pilsen presently has a high Mexican population.
    The intention may be good...

    The intention may be good but for a real estate agent, it's illegal even so.
    I don't read any veiled meaning in these posts.
    What the Pilsen Alliance is doing is directly "steering" and even worse.
    They're singling out racial groups as enemies in their own neighborhood for the fact these people are not Mexican.
    Racism to a major degree.
    They have not interest in harmony.
    Their cause is self serving and delusional.

  • Ringo712 Block Captain

    Looks to me there's alot of Indians and other Asian groups moving in as well. What they all have in common is green money. If you don't have money you can't choose were you live.
    Pilsen Alliance are nothing but a bunch of jerks.
