blue ribbons on all trees on the 3000 block of S Throop?

Someone put blue ribbons on every street tree on the 3000 block of S. Throop. Does anyone know who did this? I'm a property owner on the block and no one asked my permission.

Looking for info on old McKinley Park storefronts and taverns

Walking around the neighborhood you can't miss all the buildings, mostly sitting on corners, that use to be stores or taverns in the past. I'd love to hear from any residents that remember what some of these places were, when they closed down, and what it was like inside. I've tried doing research online, but it's hard to find specifics.

A couple buildings I've noticed close to me:

corner of 36th & wood
36th & honore
old bar at 36th & damen
wood & 34th pl
Wolcott & 38th st

Any info would be appreciated. I love learning about our neighborhood's history.

  • I don't have pics but I think 36th and Wood used to be called the FBI Tavern. Never had the chance to visit.

  • 36 and Damen was the 3600 Club alot of Daley family members patronized it

Merging Bridgeport Churches and Schools

Anyone have any update abouts what's going on with Bridgeport Churches and Schools merging?

  • emj1900 bp lifer

    Catholic school system has nobody else to blame but themselves for their dwindling church and school attendance. PERIOD! They are going merge whether you agree or disagree. And it's sad that the merging schools had to suck up their money in the red... The almighty Vatican needs to suck it up.... Maybe they can open that vast vault they have their and sell off a few gold chalices... of which they have plenty...

  • Lifetime, I agree private education are expensive and many people can't afford it. But there is also a dilema where without more revenues, the schools cannot be properly funded. I know the Archdiocese expect each parish to be self sustaining but its time they make an investment and open up...

    Lifetime, I agree private education are expensive and many people can't afford it. But there is also a dilema where without more revenues, the schools cannot be properly funded. I know the Archdiocese expect each parish to be self sustaining but its time they make an investment and open up their pocketbooks.
    In addition, St. Therese was able to increase their school enrollment with a long waiting list due to the high educational standards set. Many other Catholic schools are within a 1 or 2 mile radius from St, Therese. These other schools need to do more to reach out to the community and raise their educational standards. Their are people in the neighborhood willing to pay for a better education for their kids.

Cat Found

Hi. I live in the area of 29th and archer. There is a white and grey long haired cat that has been wandering the block the last month.

She now looks like a stray but answers and comes to my back porch everyday. Shes in need of some clean up and medical but it seems she belonged to someone once.

Anyone still missing a medium to long haired grey and white cat? She wanders around crying and its heartbreaking. Anyone know of a service that will pick her up?

  • Jambo neighbor

    Dear Cat Helper, Theresa and Miss Priss, THANK YOU to these ladies for watching out for animals in need! You are LOVED for this!

  • MissPriss, thank you so much for helping this kitty. Having a tender heart for animals is a gift...and you are using your gift well. Many, many blessings to you!
