blue ribbons on all trees on the 3000 block of S Throop?

Someone put blue ribbons on every street tree on the 3000 block of S. Throop. Does anyone know who did this? I'm a property owner on the block and no one asked my permission.

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.

Back up, city's main sewer need to be clean up

There is backing up in my place for 4 weeks already. I had two plumbers proved that there is no water flooding in the city's main sewer, which means it is clogged. I have called the city and they confirmed that the city needs to rod the main sewer. But 4 weeks passed already, they haven't done anything, just keep telling me to wait. The situation is getting worse. can you imagine how do we live in a building that has very strong smell from the backing up under such hot weather? Any good advices?

  • Wow! What a horrible situation. I am sorry that you are going through this. Have you contacted your alderman’s office? I would go in person to the office with the pictures because you’ll be less likely to get the run around. Check also with neighbors to see if anyone else has had the problem. There is strength in numbers.

    Good luck!

Cat Found

Hi. I live in the area of 29th and archer. There is a white and grey long haired cat that has been wandering the block the last month.

She now looks like a stray but answers and comes to my back porch everyday. Shes in need of some clean up and medical but it seems she belonged to someone once.

Anyone still missing a medium to long haired grey and white cat? She wanders around crying and its heartbreaking. Anyone know of a service that will pick her up?

  • Jambo neighbor

    Dear Cat Helper, Theresa and Miss Priss, THANK YOU to these ladies for watching out for animals in need! You are LOVED for this!

  • MissPriss, thank you so much for helping this kitty. Having a tender heart for animals is a gift...and you are using your gift well. Many, many blessings to you!

The Chinese Exclusion Act

PBS/WTTW Channel 11 on May 29th is having a special presentation of the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882. It examines the history of how this Act kept the Chinese from coming to America and the Chinese who are already in America from becoming US citizens until the 1940's.

  • emj will love watching this. If she had her way, Bridgeport would have dozens of boarded up storefronts where Chinese businesses flourish today.

  • In 1944, a Chicagoan became the first Chinese-American to naturalize after repeal of the Chinese Exclusion Act. He was in the US since 1892.

My favorite Bridgeport Pizza?

Does anyone know what happened with Lina's Pizza on Morgan Street?

  • Too many people are just brave when sitting behind a key board. I really wish he would take his comments and racial slurs to the streets of Bridgeport.

    ===

    R. Gar ... Tad is the classic definition of a troll. But you are correct in that I would love to see him take his comments and racial slurs to the streets - especially around Armour Square - there he would turn into a magician in that he would actually disappear.

    p.s. bye Tad, you've been muted.

  • emj1900 bp

    I already muted the troll as well .... He seems to really hate this area, why is he even here...? And you are right R. Gar.....Let him make those racist slur comments in let's say Rockys.......Now that would be funny.....
