Appliance movers?

We need to move some appliances (stove, fridge, washer and dryer) up and down stairs within our home. Any recommendations? I couldn't tell if Dolly did appliances (looked like regular home moves and furniture) and most moving companies have a $ or 2.5 hour minimum, which I don't think it should take. The fridge is too big and the doors will have to be removed.

  • Francis W Parker School reviewed by a parent

    I am a parker alum, having gone to Parker for 14 years as a child. Parker in the 1960s and 1970s was an amazing school. The student body was diverse in a calculated way (unavoidable in such a small school) but the socio-economic diversity was real. I had some classmates who were truly rich, and others that were middle or lower middle class. And none of the kids knew or cared. Of course, I wanted my child to go to Parker. Parker to day is not what it once was. The lower school remains excellent, but the middle school is in trouble, mostly due to its administration. Political correctness has infected the classrooms, and teachers are hired and retained for reasons other than educational excellence. Worst of all, Parker has become merely a "rich kid" school, with outrageous tuition, and an administration that seems to have lost sight of the fact that in the old days, parents were co-equal participants in the school's "complete community." Today they are simply consumers of a product they have little influence over. Parker still represents a solid education, a great legacy, and a place where many children can thrive. But it is no longer magical. Not by a long shot.

Possible revenue stream for Chicago?

At 5:30 a.m. cars on Lake Shore Drive travel at an average of about 65 MPH, and some are going 80 MPH. I believe the speed limit is 40 MPH to protect the roads, so why not install speed cameras to enforce the limit? Or if the high rate of speed isn’t bad for the roads, raise the speed limit so it isn’t so much of a joke.

Lead levels in the water in Lincoln Park

Hello, my husband saw a City of Chicago employee on Bissell Street today. The City of Chicago employee said he was testing the water for lead because it had shown high levels. Is this common knowledge in Lincoln Park? Should we not be drinking the water?

    Oddly, the city was doing some work on Fullerton (near Racine) over the summer and shortly after that work, my water pressure fluctuated greatly and my water turned a brownish color. I contacted the city and my alderman's office several times but was never able to get a straightforward answer. The water eventually turned back to a normal color, but again no answers. I did have my water tested by the city. They confirmed there was no bacteria, but never got back to me regarding the metal test. I've attempted to contact them several times. Needless to say, this hasn't left me confident.
