Burglarized

Lock your doors with good quality deadbolts. This includes garage doors too. Lock aluminum ladders up as well. Don't leave anything of value in your garages. Install iron gates on both sides of the house. Its getting worse and worse. We all know why.

  • Interesting comment but gang bangers will break into homes and garages every chance they get.

  • Hey Roman M what's it gonna take for you to pull your neighbors together? A brick through the window is an inconvenience, but a baby getting shot while sleeping in thier bed is not enough? That's where it's gonna go.

    Hey Roman M what's it gonna take for you to pull your neighbors together? A brick through the window is an inconvenience, but a baby getting shot while sleeping in thier bed is not enough? That's where it's gonna go.
    You and your neighbors just make it known that the thugs aren't welcome. As for weapons , conceal carry. Get one. We had the same situation here on my block. We got our neighbors together. Called the cops, I myself was threatened by them. As a women with kids I'm not putting up with that. I threatened back I have no fear of them. I got my conceal carry. I don't walk around like Wyatt Earp flashing my gun. I'm certainly not gonna hide when I have kids in the community that want to run and play. More parents here are following our footsteps and we have more conceal carry. We all are outside with our kids talking to each other. Thugs still come by, and they keep going.
    Be visual, stay informing each other, don't let them win.

Amazing School

Excellent!!
St Bruno Catholic School has exceeded my expectations on my child's education! The teachers are amazing! The students are all being taught beyond subjects like science and math. They also are taught values, morals, kindness, compassion, etc. They have activities and events that allow parents and students to get involved and further build friendships. St Bruno offers before and after school care, a wonderful asset to working parents. I highly recommend taking a tour and seeing for yourself what a lovely community this school has built with their excellent teachers, staff and students!!

Speaking Out: #Metoo Hits Chicago Police Department

“After a while, I noticed that we were headed down West 47th Street towards Pulaski. Officer Glover turned left at Kolin and 47th St. When I asked where we were going.  He didn’t answer.  He just kept driving.”

“After a while, I noticed that we were headed down West 47th Street towards Pulaski. Officer Glover turned left at Kolin and 47th St. When I asked where we were going.  He didn’t answer.  He just kept driving.”

The neighborhood was Archer Heights, a predominantly White Chicago community and industrial center filled with factories, some of which were abandoned. On the day Kim describes, Glover pulled his squad car up to the dock of one such factory on 45th and South Kolin.
