Optometrist Referral

Hi, I am looking for an economical (exam/contacts/glasses) optometrist referral in the Lakeview/Roscoe Village/North Center/Southport Corridor areas or even downtown Loop. Thank you for your suggestions.

  • If you have a Costco membership, they have an optometrist on staff.

  • My husband and I see Dr. Weiler at Lakeview Eye Care and and really like him and his staff.

  • The team at North Center Eye Care on Irving Park are great. 200$ cheaper on my daily contact orders than anyone else who takes my insurance!

NPES "Kinder-gardeners" Grow Vegetables, Donate to Common Pantry

If you've been admiring the bright planter boxes on the North Park Elementary School play lot, you can thank the school’s kindergarteners. The NPES kindergarten class — led by teacher Zoe Ardito — have maintained every aspect of the planters, from deciding what to grow to sowing the seeds to plucking the weeds to harvesting the plants. It's part of their classroom's year-long service learning project, where students take the lead (with help from their teachers) in responding to the needs of the school and community.

They started with a Fall visit to Montrose Metra Community Gardens. The hands-on experience saw the students harvesting tomatoes, peas, peppers and eggplants, which were bagged up and donated to Common Pantry, a local food pantry. “Not only did they get to feel like they were a part of this gardening project, but to give back to the community was really awesome for them,” Ardito says.

During the winter months, the class read books on gardening, talked about what happens around the globe in the winter and learned about eating seasonally. In late February, the class started to plan their gardens and in May they planted low-maintenance vegetables like zucchini, tomatoes and peppers which they'll water, weed and harvest before the end of the school year. Then they'll do another round of planting, so they can see the results when they come back in the fall. “I think it promotes global awareness, being part of a bigger picture, to plant and see things come to life,” Ardito says.

According to Ardito, kindergarten is the perfect time for kids to start learning about gardening. “What's beautiful about this age is their excitement and understanding,” she says. “They're starting to comprehend things, to develop a self-awareness and empathy, and to have an awareness of the world around them.” And then there's the dirt. “Playing in the dirt is one of their favorite things to do!"

    Susy D -- not sure where you are, but several North Side CPS schools already do some variation on what NPES does. As mentioned above, Waters has a strong ecological focus and not only has gardening but also a strong no-waste program with recycling (and I believe composting). Coonley has its "kinder garden" outside the school, which (as you might expect) the kindergarteners tend to. Bell has a civics unit in which the teacher takes kids to the grocery store and then has the kids deliver food to a food pantry. Sometimes these activities are integrated into a science curriculum. So because the teachers have mandated amounts of time they have to spend on specific subjects (not just math and writing and science and social studies, but also PE and computers), they manage to fit this in without taking away from other instruction. Surely you can't be against that. And in certain parts of the city, where there are food deserts, school/community gardens offer a way for children (and adults) to have access to fresh produce.

    As for CPS being a priority for the city, anyone who follows the news might think otherwise. Just in the past 6 months there have been revelations about special-ed services denied to students to save money, rats and other filthy conditions due to the privatized cleaning contract, and sex abuse that was covered up by CPS for years. So unfortunately no, the city (mayor) has not prioritized public education. Instead he/they have diverted resources to charter schools while starving neighborhood schools, in addition to hiring grifters and putting money toward building new schools instead of fixing/supporting the existing ones. In fact, it would be great if more Chicago citizens would pressure the mayor/city to make better decisions with their tax money.

I don't know where this started coming exactly from but I think it's that huge house that got built right on the NE corner of Montrose and Hermitage a few years ago. They frequently have parties with LOUD MUSIC, OUTDOORS, during the week (must be nice to not have to work or care about sleep, I guess) and I'm just tired of it. I've lived in this neighborhood for almost 15 years. I like living here because it is NOT like living on a street with loud bars. At least it was, until these inconsiderate neighbors! Way to come into a neighborhood and ruin it.

Maybe the music is coming from somewhere else but, I think that's the place. Huge party going on right now, only been getting louder since 9:30 when I got home. Going on 11:30 now, I'm wondering amidst the whoops and screams as I can hear people getting drunker and wilder, will I sleep tonight at all?

I've called for a noise complaint on them before. I don't want to do it again. I should not have to do this every time. Have some common sense and respect for other people. I also kind of suspect that, nothing will happen. I mean, if you are rich enough to get a lot rezoned just for your huge single family mansion that's somehow technically an LLC... maybe rules just don't apply to you? Politeness certainly doesn't, apparently.

I feel like a grandpa complaining about this but, to be honest, I'm like, ~1 block away, in my apartment, sweltering because I closed all my windows to try to block out noise, and when I called a friend this evening they said, "Wow, where are you? Out partying?" so, yeah. It's that loud. I cannot imagine what the poor houses RIGHT NEXT TO THEM, are going through.

Does anyone else have any thoughts on this? Anyone else that needs to get to bed but can't sleep through this racket want to commiserate?

    I heard really loud music on a rainy night a couple of weeks ago, but I'm near Cullom and Hermitage and thought it was coming from the east or slightly southeast of my house. I took a walk around the neighborhood and still couldn't figure out the source. I didn't go as far as Lakeview High but thought it might have been music from prom night.

    Architectural Artifacts in the middle of the 4300 block on the east side of Ravenswood often had loud events in the past but they have become more responsive to noise complaints and seem to have reduced the noise volume. I didn't hear anything last night but I was out. You could certainly call 911 if you can reasonably identify the source.

Accident on Kimball between Addison and Elston

Anyone have any information or a link for what happened? My mom's car was one of the ones in the accident, I'd like more info. All I know is that it happened Sunday at 2am, a Lexus rolled over and took out a few parked cars.
Thank you.

Northcenter Town Square Reno

Does anyone know if the renovation of Northcenter Town Square is going to happen? If so, when?

  • Just call the Northcenter Chamber of Commerce - they will give you any info you need on this issue.... They are very nice folks......

  • Brendan Southside to Northside

    From what I heard it will begin Spring 2019. Originally there were to be two phases - one that began Spring 2018 and another to complete in Spring 2019 - but that has changed.

  • The alderman recently told me the project would be starting this next year so I believe it is moving forward.

Did anyone lose their pet parakeet?

Spotted a small white and blue bird (parakeet?) in the bushes next to the Coonley Elementary School playground (Leavitt between Irving Park and Cuyler) this morning around 7am. Hope he/she finds their way back home!
