    More important than Samantha's thank you for assisting her with our small business suggestions and taking a walking tour of Rogers Park as research for this article, is this message from one of her readers:

    "Replying to @samanthanelson1 @RogersParkCoC
    Ayyyy my old neighborhood! Heartland Cafe is right across the street from the apartment complex I lived in until I was 16".

    Bringing back a positive memory of one of our local businesses, is key to attracting more visitors, and this stimulates our local economy.

    No you haven't Bill. If there are indeed "manhy works around the neighborhood that we support, that you probably do not know we had a role in making happen" then why can't you come up with an example of at least one?

All those recent tax increases haven't improved Chicago's fiscal health

" In a report that City Hall won't like much, a Chicago-based watchdog group says hundreds of millions of dollars in recent tax hikes haven't done much to improve Chicago's woeful financial condition—at least so far.

Truth in Accounting, a somewhat conservative research group whose board runs the ideological spectrum, gives the city an F on its overall financial breakdown, saying each Chicagoan would be on the hook for $41,700 in unfunded liabilities if the city shut down tomorrow and had to reconcile its books—more than many people make in an entire year. Overall, it concludes that "Chicago finances (are) still in peril."

Please neighbors, make sure you have an alarm on your car. our car was broken into on Nov 3, 2017 around 8:10 pm. We got the act on a film. Two men broke in to our car. It’s crazy to think a neighbor next door parked his white car right behind our Car and did nothing. Not even honk at the men in our car. I’m sure every one on the corner block recognized that the men did not own th car in which they were braking into were not us. I know if we had seen some thing strange we would have done something to deter what was going on and Called the police. We all work hard to get what we need to live for our families and our self and be safe. Please let’s be mindful to each other with respect for one another. Keep your camera filming on your window, let’s work together to be safe of one another. See something strange in our neighborhood, or our car report to the police. God bless everyone, thank you.

  • Phill My rights are absolute and non-negotiable!

    One thing that must be abundantly clear is that you should never expect help from strangers. So many people freeze-up or, let's be frank, coward-up in the face of danger.
    We must aim to be strong, train hard, and be self-reliant.
    There are so many Youtube videos of violent attacks in public and the comments always say "But why won't anyone help???"
    Yes, sometimes there's a hero around, but it's better to be the hero yourself.

  • So, being you have the break-in on video, can anything be done with that?

    Phill - Alderman are not responsible for policing. I suggest you call and schedule a meeting with the District commander, and bring as many neighbors as possible. Be sure to voice your concerns at CAPS meetings, too

    I understand that Bill Morton is running against your current alderman; reach out to him and see what his solutions are.

  • Helen NoH North of Howard for 55 + years

Western and Peterson Construction

I was told a month ago that the gigantic building going up on Western and Peterson is a car dealership, but that was before any building was done. It seems pretty big for that.

Any info on whether that's what they're putting up or if it's something else?

    Just because a property is on a commercial street does not mean it has no responsibility to the public. Note that the architect (Axios) who designs other Toyota dealerships is too embarrassed by it to include it on his website.

    Technically it follows zoning law because its a Planned Developmenf - BPD No 1275. The City Council approved a custom zoning désignation - ie mads a legal exception - because the dealwrship’s plan does not conform to the zoning that was previously in place. It s an abuse of the PD as a legal mechanism, not what a PD was designed for.

    It also doesn’t confirm to the Chicago streetscape ordinance. Or the Western Ave streetscspe plan.

    it’s sets am awful precedent for the way PDs are being used and mostly for what is acceptable to build within city limits.

Lost cat. North shore and campbell

Lost a mostly black and a little white cat named Bean. He is sweet though shy. He does not have a collar but does have a chip. Please message me should you see him.

Michael

  • There are two regular feral mostly black tuxedo like with white paws cats that frequent the 6700 N block of Campbell (between Pratt and Northshore).
    I saw a cat fitting that description last night about 9:30. Not sure if it's one of the regulars or your kitty. I tried to engage with it but it hid in the bushes.

  • Michael, Did you find Bean? Can you post a picture. We've seen a cat similar to your description. She is in our backyard right now. Please post a picture, if you haven't found Bean yet.

    It's late but not too late to start circulating petitions run in the March 2018 primary for state senator in the 8th district. Incumbents have gerrymandered districts and arranged primaries and petition qualifications to keep themselves in control. And we can see how well that has worked for them, but not us. If Robin is correct and a couple candidates are mulling a run, they should make themselves known now, so supporters can rally to their candidacies. Additionally, I suggest 8th Dist. voters consider the upside of electing a Republican in November 2018.

West ridge area

I’m thinking of flipping a house in west ridge but it is landlocked will the price drop considerably it’s a 3 bedroom kitchen plus a huge basement ranch home we r thinking of adding a few bedrooms in basement ! I’m buying it for 240 what do u think it is landlocked so no garage but u can park two cars on the side like a driveway ! Realtors and investors pl help and home owners

  • Andrew Carpenter Realtor Edgewater home owner and Chicago Reator

    A landlocked property with a driveway certainly doesn't sell for as much as a house with a garage but there are still people who will buy it. Your pool of buyers will be smaller than if you had a garage. Because of that it will likely take longer to sell the house once you have rehabbed it. If you would like help purchasing it and more specifics on that house you can email me through everyblock.

Snowless Winter Saved City $1M In Overtime, 260K Tons Of Salt Last Year

"The savings banked by the city because there was no snow for plow drivers to clear after hours while being paid overtime would have been greater if the city hadn't been hit by several "ice events," Williams said.

"Those can be more costly because you have to keep salting," Williams said."

    Snowless Winter Saved City $1M In Overtime, 260K Tons Of Salt Last Year
    CITY HALL - Last year's nearly snowless winter saved the city nearly $1 million - and 260,000 tons of road salt, Streets and Sanitation Commissioner Charles Williams told aldermen Tuesday. "We're ready for the snow," Williams said.

  • robin in WRP I support a 28th Amendment 4Free & Fair Elections!

    So much copying and pasting. Are you running for alderman?

  • Let's not rejoice too easily--the law of averages means that one excessively snowy and/or icy winter will consume all the savings and salt--and more! Predictions are for another relatively mild 2017-18 winter though. Yea, global warming!
