Gun shots and drag racing, 1:15 a.m., 7/8/2018

Anyone hear anything like this on Archer near Lock Street? The drag racing is one thing, but the gunfire/racing combination was a first for me since I’ve been here.

  • And have for as long as I can remember...Just part of every day life. Drag racing car and crotch rockets shooting guns ahhhhh no. That's dangerous and can get an innocent person killed. Train horn to my knowledge has never killed anyone.... Have a good day....Reality

    __

    You sir are a classic definition of a troll.

    Consider yourself <MUTED>

  • The “drag racing” has been going on for years. They come from loomis and shoot down Archer and end up in the Mariano’s parking lot almost every Saturday night around 1:30/2:00am.

    Not sure about the gun shots but if it’s the same group they haven’t had issues like that as far as I remember.

Unauthorized No Parking Sign?

There is a grassy event space behind the gate and they posted this no parking sign on their gate. It is not a sloped curb and there is bike racks in front of this gate so there is no need to have that sign since no cars will ever go in. They also tend to put cones out to hold parking spots but it's a busy street (Morgan and 33rd) with limited parking as there are businesses, restaurants, galleries, homes...

There is a grassy event space behind the gate and they posted this no parking sign on their gate. It is not a sloped curb and there is bike racks in front of this gate so there is no need to have that sign since no cars will ever go in. They also tend to put cones out to hold parking spots but it's a busy street (Morgan and 33rd) with limited parking as there are businesses, restaurants, galleries, homes nearby; not to mention street cleaning twice a week and white sox restrictions. Called 311 and they were rude and said it may be a movers sign but this is not the case as there is no dates and it clearly does not say "City of Chicago" as other signs may say. Can anyone direct me as to what to do? Or whether it is even legal?

  • Official curb cuts are on file with the City. I also I recall that properties, which have them are supposed to be taxed extra on their property taxes.

    I would confirm with your Alderman and they should be able to advise what to do. (If it was an official zone, the Alderman would have to approve it.)

Pilsen Alliance addresses housing, bicycle path

Preserving a family friendly, working class haven took center stage at the two-and-a-half-hour June 6 meeting at the National Museum of Mexican Art, 1852 W. 19th St.

The planned Paseo bike path would run from 16th and Sangamon Streets to the area around 32nd Street and Central Park Avenue

It’s not enough to close the Fink Generating Station at 1131 W. Cermak Road and the Crawford Station at 3501 S. Pulaski Road, Sigcho said. He called for redeveloping the sites and retraining those who worked at the two plants.

I lost my cat, Squirrel Saturday afternoon. The door was left open during a move and she got out.

She was last seen by my apartment at 18th Street and Ashland in the Pilsen neighborhood.

She is a 6 year old female domestic long hair. She is grey with some cream, tan and white markings. She has green eyes and a tipped left ear.

She was timid and is still slow to warm to strangers but has really started to come into her own. I have had her as an indoor house cat for the past 5 years in Chicago. I assume with her behavior and personality that she is likely scared and hiding somewhere right now.

I am distraught over the whole situation.

  • I used to bang canned food around my home to find my guys if they got out. Try that, and call her, maybe you'll find her. Good luck!!

  • She is probably hiding somewhere nearby. Put out her litter box. When it is quiet, go out and call to her. She could also have gotten into an open garage so check with your neighbors. I am confident she will find her way home. My friend lost her cat the same way and she came home 28 days later.

  • So sorry that you lost your cat. I think that there are several facebook and other sites where you can post your pictures and see if someone has found her. If you need help with that, I am happy to search other threads for the links.

    Hope this helps.

Yes, meet Yes! A year after Rock Hall of Fame induction, two bands embark on Yes 50th anniversary tours

“It was a happy summer vacation to play with old friends for three months and then be paid enough to feed most of Bosnia,” Bruford said in a 1995 Union-Tribune interview.

Speaking of food, in a 2004 Union-Tribune interview, Wakeman recalled the 1973 “Topographic Oceans” tour of England. During a long, keyboard-free segment at one show, he ate an Indian dinner at his keyboards — mid-concert — while the rest of the band performed.

    Yes, meet Yes! A year after Rock Hall of Fame induction, two bands embark on Yes 50th anniversary tours
    Will the real Yes please stand up? Is it the Yes whose current concert trek is billed as "#YES50: Celebrating 50 Years of Yes?" That tour stops Sunday, June 24, at Pechanga Resort & Casino and includes two other Southern California dates by the pioneering English progressive-rock band.

Merging Bridgeport Churches and Schools

Anyone have any update abouts what's going on with Bridgeport Churches and Schools merging?

  • emj1900 bp

    Catholic school system has nobody else to blame but themselves for their dwindling church and school attendance. PERIOD! They are going merge whether you agree or disagree. And it's sad that the merging schools had to suck up their money in the red... The almighty Vatican needs to suck it up.... Maybe they can open that vast vault they have their and sell off a few gold chalices... of which they have plenty...

  • Lifetime, I agree private education are expensive and many people can't afford it. But there is also a dilema where without more revenues, the schools cannot be properly funded. I know the Archdiocese expect each parish to be self sustaining but its time they make an investment and open up...

    Lifetime, I agree private education are expensive and many people can't afford it. But there is also a dilema where without more revenues, the schools cannot be properly funded. I know the Archdiocese expect each parish to be self sustaining but its time they make an investment and open up their pocketbooks.
    In addition, St. Therese was able to increase their school enrollment with a long waiting list due to the high educational standards set. Many other Catholic schools are within a 1 or 2 mile radius from St, Therese. These other schools need to do more to reach out to the community and raise their educational standards. Their are people in the neighborhood willing to pay for a better education for their kids.

    The creators of Khecari's weeklong dance event, The Retreat , encourage audience members to fall asleep. Or rather Khecari's artistic directors, Jonathan Meyer and Julia Rae Antonick, who have been developing the project since 2014, fuse improvisation and highly structured choreography into an amorphous performance designed to put viewers in a meditative headspace.
