Car Crashes Into Multiple Parked cars on S Indiana

A car crashed into multiple parked cars around 1 am last night on S Indiana, between 44th & 45th. I heard the sound of the crash but it took a few minutes to realize what had happened. 2 occupants of the car were arguing loudly. Police were called and showed up in 5 minutes. If you live on this block, you might want to check your car!

  • Annette Bada North Kenwood resident

    Thank you for being informative. I do not live over these but it is good to know that conscientious neighbors are in my area.

Free Trees!

Hi Neighbors,

In case you weren't aware, you can get FREE trees for your street from the city or working with a non-profit called Openlands. If it’s just one or a few trees then make a request through 311. If your street has open spots for 10+ trees then apply for a grant from Openlands. More details below.

For one or just a few trees, go through the city’s 311 online system (search tree planting) or call 311:

Hi Neighbors,

In case you weren't aware, you can get FREE trees for your street from the city or working with a non-profit called Openlands. If it’s just one or a few trees then make a request through 311. If your street has open spots for 10+ trees then apply for a grant from Openlands. More details below.

For one or just a few trees, go through the city’s 311 online system (search tree planting) or call 311:

https://www.cityofchicago.org/city/en/depts/311.html

It takes time for requests to get fulfilled. My request took a couple of years before I got a call and something happened.

When I talked to one of the guys who runs tree planting for the city he said they plant trees based on demand. If no requests are made, no trees get planted. Be specific with your requests. For example, one tree at the curb outside XXXX S Calumet. The number of trees the city plants depends on the budget for the year. If the budget doesn’t cover the full list for the city (typical), then the list rolls over to the next year.

If you have space for 10+ trees then apply for a grant from Openlands:

https://openlands.org/trees/treeplanters-grants/

They will plant on city public land. Public land is considered to be the parkways between the curb and the sidewalk in front of residential houses, CPS school property, and some vacant lots. You need to organize a group of volunteers to help with planting. For example, neighbors, school group, church group, block club, etc.

Last Fall our group of neighbors planted 40 trees on two blocks in the neighborhood. It was a nice neighborhood event and a great way to fill in empty spots along the street that were missing trees.

Make the South Side even more beautiful!

    I am once again protesting Everyblock's increasing censorship of perfectly legal, positive posts. I posted a link to the tragic shooting of an unarmed Black AA man in Sacramento CA and noted that it looked like the police acted improperly. I linked to a very positive informational video from FlexYourRights.org providing very practical advice how to avoid and survive hostile police encounters. I also linked to the City Hall protest where the deceased brothers and others through temper tantrums and behaved in inappropriate ways that discredited their legitimate grievances. Why was this censored? This censorship seems to me the same as when Everyblock censored my comments noting that some Simeon High School students ransacked the local Wall Mart in the national walk out protests over gun violence. What happened to our 1st Amendment rights to just suggest that our young people should not riot, loot stores and should try to avoid hostile police encounters by acting in a calm and reasonable way? Do we want our young people to riot - engage in behavior that will lead to very dangerous encounters with police or armed citizens? What's going on?

I am making a complaint about censorship on Everyblock. I made an intelligent post opposing the worst forms of Rap music in the Chicago Public Schools and on Grammy and other awards shows. I advocating teaching our young people time tested standards of decency, promoting traditional education and positive music and culture.

Pretty much every successful adult I meet of all racial and ethnic groups agrees with these positions, and yet we are the ones who are censored, not the worst, most violent, hateful rap "Musicians".

This #*$&*# isn't even music as few rap "musicians" know how to play instruments or read music.

I'll support any Christian pastor, ex military veteran, grandmother from the South anybody that can step in and give our young people some positive direction in life - Catholic Nuns used to wash students mouths out with soap for using the vile language I hear in almost every single rap song - and this music seems to be infecting every part of society. When will it end? How long to the Bubonic plague in Europe last?

  • @jaye - Are you saying there's a radical Islamic serial killer on the loose killing gay people? I'm not at all saying you're wrong, just asking for your evidence? If he/they were truly Islamic radicals, I'd imagine they'd do something similar to the Pulse nightclub incident ... not running around in the shadows like they're Jack the Ripper.

    No this Islamic serial killer has been arrested. I just wanted to notified Gay people in Boystown should be alerted.
