Ignore these scam artists!

I'm sure a lot of you here have had somebody knock on your door from Direct Energy or some other utility 'representative'. I'm tired of these guys knocking on my door and asking to see a copy of my utility bill. They are a scam company and a quick google search will show you that. I snapped a photo of this clowns ID so you can know NOT to speak to him when he knocks on your door. I hate to do it but I might have put up a 'No Soliciting' sign on my door since these guys seem to show up once every month or two.

    calling 311 for what? What do you want them to do actually.. or 911 for that matter. Not an emergency that some creep is at your door pitching his energy nonsense. Don't answer the door or if you do just say NO thank you and close the door. They become aggressive, like the idiot I had at my door....I called my dog.....but calling 311 really? not ike they are gonna come chase them away for yeah....

  • Okay - I get it. Calling 311 or 911 would not be appropriate. Thank you.

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)

    'Long Overdue' Mark Sheridan Annex Will Give Kids More Play Time: Officials
    BRIDGEPORT - Students at Mark Sheridan Academy already get a top-notch education. With the new addition that is now underway, they'll get access to better athletics facilities and playgrounds, according to officials. Students, school leaders and local officials broke ground Saturday on the $8 million, 9,000-square-foot annex at Sheridan Academy, 533 W.

  • Yay Mark Sheridan!!! I graduated here in 91’ after going all 9 years of grade school & they deserve this! Best grade school in the city but it’s always been selective enrollment but it’s more than worth trying to get your kid in! Go blue & gold🙌🏽😍

  • emj1900 bp lifer

    I get your point but....Most schools in this city today are selective sadly. When my daughter attended it was selective. And yes it did make it easier for the sibling ( our son) to get in. I will also agree that there should be more consideration given to local kids....

I will also agree that there should be more consideration given to local kids. We live 10 blocks away and busing was NOT an option for us. We had a carpool our kids all 9 yrs. It is a great school. Please keep trying to get your kids in. Make some noise if you have too... Might help. Just really NOT fair that the area kids can't get in.... Good Luck to you...

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.

Shots fired in Bridgeport last night

Does anyone know about shots fired near St. Mary's church (32nd & Morgan) in Bridgeport last night around 12:30am? We heard them pretty clearly and called it in but no police activity or squealing tires we know of afterwards. Hopefully a false alarm!?

  • Does anyone know what relation there is (if any) to the incident at 31st and Aberdeen today? This morning, someone fired at a passing car. Holden School had a soft lockdown.

UIC students push for faculty diversity

http://www.chicagotribune.com/hoy/ct-hoy-uic-demands-latinx-representation-20170928-story.html

In 1973, a group of Mexican-Americans and Puerto Ricans protested the displacement of Mexican households by the construction of the university, and despite many arrests, continued to push for Latino inclusion on-campus. The pressure led to the founding of the LCC and the Latin American and Latino Studies Program.

    40 years later, UIC students demand more Latinx representation
    Students of Mexican and Latin American descent from the University of Illinois-Chicago (UIC) gathered today to urge for more representation at the faculty and administrative level in the same place where, more than 40 years ago, students fought for the inclusion of Latin American Studies to the UIC curriculum.
