    Affordable housing in the Far Northwest Side: A tale of two projects
    The economic bustle in and around O'Hare International Airport yields a strong job market for working-class Chicagoans, a market that's only going to get stronger when O'Hare's long-awaited expansion starts. Plenty of mass transit, including the Blue Line and an array of CTA bus routes, connects Far Northwest Side neighborhoods with the rest of the city.

    The fibune supports open borders and is no friend of the 2nd Amendment. They don't provide descriptions of perps, unless their hand is called by blogs like second city cop and/or crime in wrigleyville and boys town.

    Every poll done in the last 3 decades have shown the the msm vote 90%+ for the democrats, and have overwhelmingly liberal attitudes on social issues.

    You'd have to go back to the mid-1990's to have a foot to stand on deeming the fibune "conservative," especially their editorial board.

A Chicago man is facing gun and assault charges after police said he threatened a group of men — while holding a loaded semi-automatic rifle — because he believed they had cut in front of him in line at a Niles restaurant Sunday.

Nenif M. Oshana, 26, of the 2500 block of West Berwyn Avenue in Chicago, was charged with felony aggravated unlawful use of a weapon and misdemeanor aggravated assault in connection with an alleged dispute that police said erupted at Taco Burrito House, 9001 N.

    Under the fair-use doctrine, copied from the Chicago Tribune:

    So similarly, I’ll dimly see a Quaker abolitionist preaching the immorality of slavery followed by a Virginian proclaiming slave-holding his constitutional right. I simultaneously hear echoes of contemporary arguments about the Second Amendment and am depressingly aware of the futility of words, then and now, to head off violence.

    For some issues, like slavery and guns, neither side can convert the other or fashion a livable compromise.

    It’s like Abraham Lincoln said: A nation can’t be “half slave and half free.” Until Congress let it lapse in 2004, we did have a gun-control compromise: a ban on manufacturing assault weapons, like the AR-15 brought to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., in 2018.

    Those failures, past and present, bring to mind horrific sights that haunt my bedtime hours. They flash by in rapid succession:

    Parents and schoolmates recently weeping outside Santa Fe High School in Texas.

    Mathew Brady’s photographs of corpses on Civil War battlefields.

    Video of students and teachers evacuating a school in a drill preparing them for the eventuality of a school shooting.

    In the somber light of day, I realize why politicians turned a deaf ear to the call for gun controls heard at massive demonstrations on March 24.

    In America, guns have what anthropologists call “totemic” power. Guns are hallowed symbols akin to the Stars and Stripes. They command respect and get it — even in unlikely quarters.

Car alarm 4300 block Ridgeway

Anyone know who owns this car. The alarm has been going for 9 hours now. Half a dozen people called the cops, but all they do is blast by with their lights on. Also, no sticker or street permit. Maybe a nice ticket would catch his attention.

Rude neighbor blocks alley with car repair business multiple days per week

After putting up with this for 2 years, I am done. The neighbor across the alley from me blocks the alley 1-2 days per week with what appears to be a car repair business. Multiple cars get parked in the alley behind my garage and make it a pain for me to leave my house. Incidentally, I work from home but have to leave frequently in my car for my business.

After putting up with this for 2 years, I am done. The neighbor across the alley from me blocks the alley 1-2 days per week with what appears to be a car repair business. Multiple cars get parked in the alley behind my garage and make it a pain for me to leave my house. Incidentally, I work from home but have to leave frequently in my car for my business. Sometimes the people working on the cars have been nice and move the cars so I can get out but last year one of the guys yelled at me for trying to back out of my own garage ( I am a young professional woman). At times, I have been late for appointments due to having to wait for these cars to be moved. Now I hesitate to even bring my trash out to the alley when these people are back there. Just looking for advice on what I can do or who to call. I hate to be “that” neighbor but I am done playing nice. However, I am afraid that if I call the cops, these people will retaliate against me.

  • Not a bad idea

  • It absolutely stinks to know law-abiding citizens with their rights being trampled upon feel they must "bite their tongues" to preserve their personal safety. And I get how you feel. Shame it ever got to where it is.
    Truly hope you find a way to deter the activity. Maybe the IL Dept of Revenue might be responsive. Your aggregate observations could constitute "interest" for a bigger agency (DEA or ICE).

Squatters

My neighbors moved out about 3 weeks ago and decided to rent their house instead of sell. About a week ago, they put a Domu sign in their front yard. The house looked somewhat vacant, but they had left some pieces of furniture and boxes of belongings in the home that they were planning on selling or giving away.

My neighbors moved out about 3 weeks ago and decided to rent their house instead of sell. About a week ago, they put a Domu sign in their front yard. The house looked somewhat vacant, but they had left some pieces of furniture and boxes of belongings in the home that they were planning on selling or giving away.
The husband had left the back door unlocked on Friday afternoon so that his brother-in-law could pick up some items from the home. On Sunday morning, he stopped by the home to do some work and found a freshly showered girl (that he did not recognize) coming down the stairs.
She also had a bag in her hand of his wife's clothes. After an exchange, he heard footsteps running down the stairs and the girl and the other person fled out the back door.
He called the cops and they went through the house to see what was going on. They found that these people had cleaned, organized, and even decorated (all with my neighbors belongings that they had found while going through loads of boxes). They had made-up beds for themselves with cushions/sheets/pillows and even set-up a little night stand with a small table and lamp. He said they made it very homey. I guess they were making jewelry and had a little station set-up with wire cutters and beads.
The cops were shocked because normally squatters are doing heavy drugs in abandoned houses, but these people were cleaning, decorating, making jewelry, and showering. WHAAATTT?!?!
Is this not insane? I am so mind blown. And this happened next door to me without my knowledge!!! CRAZY!! I have so many questions about this whole situation. I guess I am posting here just to inform the neighborhood of the situation and maybe the off-chance that anyone has any intel or similar experience.
Keep your doors locked people. Don't advertise that you aren't home. And keep a good eye out for your neighbors.

    Nothing - absolutely nothing - surprises me in Chicago anymore.

  • Lol Jim. I'm surprised you thought the house was vacant...did you not see their elaborate Halloween decorations this year? Surely you and your dog were spooked the first time you walked by;) Ironically enough, I think it was a vampire that played "the monster mash" every time someone walked by. Ha.

  • Tomorrow, is another day, beezil is right here. I read the 3rd line and yes it is a question, but I immediately recognize the purpose ... a none too subtle means of initiating yet another gun control debate. If Bob sincerely wanted to talk about the schools in Albany Park, he should have posted links about the schools, not four links about the same mass shooting. Where are the Albany Park school links???

  • ResWorldWide

    Hopefully never bob. If it was to happen though, our “gun-loving friends” still wouldn’t blame the guns. They would in fact attack parents, mental health and liberals as a means to justify the fact that we have an ongoing, uncontrollable gun problem and infatuation in this country.
