    Why I voted against the taxpayer subsidy for Presence Health
    The City Council yesterday voted to provide a $5.6 million tax increment finance subsidy to Presence Health. I was one of 18 aldermen who voted against the subsidy. Allow me to explain why. The subsidy was given to entice the health care provider to move its headquarters, and the 200 jobs that came with it, from the suburbs to downtown Chicago.

    You should pay more attention to your own ward John considering you don't live in this ward. the 49th. It is only your opinion that O'Connor "voted correctly for the subsidy" - many disagree, Women have the right to make decisions on all matters concerning their bodies, not some hypocritical - out of date / out of the loop healthcare provider guided by religious views that have NO place in any medical care provider's protocol... this is the 21st century not the medieval times as they abide by in the Red States.

    And as Helen states "why don't you MYOB?" and we'll mind ours.

    There's good reason why there's separation between church and state... this is a perfect example of why our forefathers incorporated that from the very beginning.

    This was a properly cast vote in opposition to subsidizing a business that openly and brazenly discriminates against women. In this case, because of its religious foundations, the discrimination is legal but it should not be supported with taxpayer money. Subsidizing Presence Health would have the effect of forcing taxpayers to condone discriminatory practices and religious beliefs that many find to be disagreeably offensive. This particular form of discrimination by the Roman Catholic Church is legally protected but it should not be imposed as a religiously based tax burden on the general population.

Parents please contact your local schools council to support safe passage in Rogers Park.

After the recent shootings and strong armed robberies a small group of concerned parents met to discuss options.
We were advised to take our concerns to local schools principles and the LSC.
There is no formal process in place to establish safe passage in Rogers Park.
The idea is to have this in place for the start of the fall session.
If this effort gains traction the local police commander and Alderman can provide additional information and guidance.
It all starts with parents contacting the LSC and principles.

  • Bruce_ Comment by TBD, whom you've muted

    Thanks for everyone's help in bringing these valuable resources to Rogers Park.

  • This old posting is from 2016. Is the original poster, Bruce, trying to stir the pot by dragging it up again with hopes of provoking argument and controversy? None of the 14 schools mentioned in the most recent comment are in or near Rogers Park. A posting from two years ago is no longer informative. The new listing of schools isn't relevant to Rogers Park. Old news isn't helpful and unnecessary provocation isn't neighborly. What's your point Bruce?

  • Wait... isn't CPS having trouble finding enough money to fulfill their primary objective of providing a good education for the children in the district?

    Now they are paying people's rent too?

    CPS needs to stick to their primary tax payer funded mission and let the other community resources do what THEY do best. Wonder how much CPS is diverting in benefits and salaries to administer this housing program that overlaps with other city and state programs?

  • The money for the program comes from the City of Chicago Housing Trust Fund. CPS is just identifying families that are homeless but still managing to send their kids to school.

Join your Rogers Park neighbors for the Resistance as we march with hundreds of thousands of Chicagoans to send a strong, unified message to Donald Trump that we continue to stand united and support each other in protecting and furthering women's rights and the rights and civil liberties of all people.

The 49th Ward Democratic Party is one of over 100 "supporting groups" that are providing support and marchers for the March to the Polls, the Second Annual Women’s March on Chicago, taking place this Saturday, January 20th.

We are sponsoring a bus that will take you directly to the site of the rally and march at the intersection of Congress Parkway and Columbus Drive and bring you back to Rogers Park that afternoon after the march and rally have ended.

Meet us this Saturday, January 20th, 9:00 a.m., at the 49th Ward Democratic Party office, 1774 W. Greenleaf (at Ravenswood). We will have complimentary coffee and donuts to help get your morning started.

Space for the bus is filling up quickly, so please RSVP as soon as possible to guarantee yourself a seat. To RSVP, visit:

https://goo.gl/forms/QPLLXYAcnHocT2Xi1

This Saturday, we will come together again to celebrate the spirit of the resistance efforts over the past year and unite to focus on the 2018 elections and beyond.

The 49th Ward is clearly strong and united and the March to the Polls this Saturday is an important act of resistance. Please join us for this historic march.

    Two Chicago aldermen want to limit release of condo owners' personal information
    Two Chicago aldermen who represent most of downtown want to reverse a state law that makes condo owners' personal information more widely available to their fellow association members. A proposal introduced this week by Aldermen Brian Hopkins and Brendan Reilly would allow association boards to limit the release of owners' names, addresses, email addresses, phone numbers and weighted votes in Chicago condo buildings and complexes.
    http://www.chicagotribune.com
  • Wazzup not available

    being able to contact neighbors in an emergency - like flooding from above - is important. Not every condo has a manager on site - and not every condo has a contact person at night. This ordinance is important and will be appreciated when an emergency arises. There could be an exception for those condos with 24 hour on site contact -like manager or doorman.

  • Some smaller condo associations automatically distribute a list of telephone numbers to all residents for that purpose. This is different and was supposedly quietly stuck into another proposed Condominium Act change. I understand that several state senators and representatives are already starting to work on repealing that one part of the change.

    I just feel like the word troubled has negative connotations attatched to it. We never say a person who suffers from a physical illness is troubled. Troubled is usually attatched to people with mental issues not physical.you know people who have behavioral issues are often labeled as troubled. Behavioral issues are generally due to mental health issues. Its a controversial subject.

    Many a warm summer night was spent there with a burger and a beer...or two..or three...

    One of the reasons Moody's beer garden became so popular was that it was all-ages: you could bring the family and eat outside. Also, the bar indoors was very dark--and, before anti-smoking ordinances were enacted--smoky as hell. So the outdoors became a refuge from smokers too--people still smoked outside, but they could wave the smoke away. (And you & they could see each other and move to a different table).

    I never knew any other Moody's but the one on B'way. I know it's not the end of an era, but it's always sad when a person who established something beloved passes away. May his memory be for a blessing,

Moving to Edgewater

Hi! My wife and I are looking to buy our first condo, and we we're wondering what the general opinion is of Ardmore between Ridge and Clark and if there is anything we should be aware of. Thanks!

  • Parking is difficult there. More then most places.

    Depends on what part of Edgewater. East of B'way, parking is difficult because of so many apt. bldgs with so few garage spaces. West has more single-family homes and 2-flats with garages, so on-street parking's easier to find. I live less than 1/4 mi. from a Red Line station, and...

    Depends on what part of Edgewater. East of B'way, parking is difficult because of so many apt. bldgs with so few garage spaces. West has more single-family homes and 2-flats with garages, so on-street parking's easier to find. I live less than 1/4 mi. from a Red Line station, and it has almost never taken me more than 45 minutes, even in rush hour, to get as far south as Jackson St. (Track problems & the like can happen on any line). Ubers & Lyfts are plentiful; and many of the city's taxi drivers live here--easy to flag down a cab on B'way.

    I grew up in NYC, and to get from Queens to Brooklyn on the subway, you had to go through Manhattan. (My husband's commute to college--no dorms at CUNY schools--was 2.5 hrs. each way every day). The NYC subway system is deteriorating due to budget cuts. I lived in Seattle, and drove to law school in south Tacoma-->1 hr. each way). Be glad you don't live in DuPage or Kane County and commute into the Loop. And don't even ask about Los Angeles or the Miami-W. Palm I-95 corridor.

    We Chicagoans don't realize how lucky we are when it comes to commuting from a residential 'hood to downtown.
