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.

    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.

An expansion team unlike any other, Golden Knights could make NHL playoffs in 1st season

"The protected list was a joke," said Jack Lynch, a defenseman on that first Capitals team. "If you look back at the players who were exposed for the expansion draft back then, you were getting basically access to the 17th, 18th and 19th player on the existing NHL teams' rosters."

    An expansion team unlike any other, Golden Knights could make NHL playoffs in 1st season
    Nate Schmidt's first memory of an NHL expansion draft goes back to 2000, when he was 8 years old and his beloved home state of Minnesota got a new team, the Wild. That was also when Schmidt first learned about the reality for expansion franchises in their first season.

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)

Best Chicago Beer for Every Season

Check out Laguanitas at 2607 W. 17th St.

    Best Chicago Beer for Every Season
    The difficulty in choosing a favorite beer lies somewhere between choosing a favorite movie and a favorite child, with the answer inevitably becoming "It depends." If I want something both flavorful and refreshing while munching on potato skins at an outdoor bar, I'll grab an amber ale.

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.
