Chicago's "Smart Lighting Project" is NOT smart!

Blinding LED streetlights have failed in NYC and LA, but Chicago keeps plodding ahead with first generation lighting. If you don't want your neighborhood to look like Fulton Market, call your Alderman and tell them you want warm PC Amber LED's in Chicago not "night game" lighting on your residential street. https://www.facebook.com/groups/155084901640186/

    This is a prime example of how to not do campaigning.

    All Vicki ever does is to assume everyone shares her point of view so she tries to speak for everyone. Once that fails, she starts name calling and labelling, telling everyone that she’s right and everyone is wrong, that she wants to have intelligent conversations while everyone else is insensitive, that she’s a good citizen while everyone else is a troll, that her HPS lights are beautiful and everyone’s LEDs make the city look like Walmart parking lots and mosques. Once that fails, she resorts to personal attacks.

    All quality traits for someone that is trying to get people to support their cause.

Car key found

I found a Kia car key on Grace, just west of Janssen yesterday. PM me to identify.

  • Hi Cazh - I lost a key in that area over the weekend, but it's a Subaru car key. Just make sure the one you found is definitely a Kia? Mine was on a heart shaped key ring with a gold and silver key too, but it's possible that the car key may no longer be attached to the key ring. Thanks for double checking the one you have!

  • Hi Ashbash1013. Sorry to say the key has Kia written on it.
    Hope you’re successful in your search.

    Chicago Nonprofit InjusticeWatch Digs Into Judicial Candidates
    You're standing in the voting booth, staring down at a long list of people running for judicial positions, and you have no idea which candidates you should vote for. Now there's help: InjusticeWatch, a Chicago-based non-partisan, not-for-profit journalism organization, is publishing a series of investigations on local judicial candidates up for election in Illinois' March 20th primary.

    As long as Judge Carol Howard is booted I will be happy. She’s the idiot who gave the woman who tossed her just-born baby out of a 4th story window “house arrest”. She is a joke and a travesty to the criminal justice system.

    Maybe there should be an explicit campaign to educate voters on her.

Judges

Is there an organization or an individual(s) that compile a list of judges lenient or easy on crime that should not be retained or voted for? In view of so much crime committed by previous offenders a list like this would be very much appreciated by voters when heading to the polls.

Anyone know of a mobile lab that will do TB test, blood work, urinalyisis?

We need to get these tests done for an elderly blind woman we are helping.
It is almost impossible to transport her ourselves but she needs to get this work done to be able to get into a specific Catholic skilled care nursing home. They require them all completed before she moves in.
Thanks!

  • Also, you might call the Discharge Planning Department at any local hospital. They have current information for companies needed for patients at home.

    a lot of tests can be done by mail-have you asked this home for advice?

Anyone have any luck noise proofing a living room floor, front door and windows?

We like our 100 year old condo but the new family downstairs is driving us mad with the crying, screaming, jumping going on morning and night with all the ensuing sounds coming up right through our hardwood floors.

No they aren't going to alter their activities, we've discussed it with them..

Then there is the issue of the front door and all the hall sounds with the doors banging not to omit the noise from the front windows with the sound of school recess time and the el rolling by frequently.

The living room is the main point of conflict.

We could move but 'want to check this out first.

Thanks very much.

Water heater annual maintenance

Anyone willing to share what they paid to have their water heater drained? I just called a couple of companies and they weren’t able/willing to give costs over the phone. Some had a call out fee that would be waived if I had them do the work.
Also, what was included in routine maintenance? Just draining the tank or more?
Any company recommendations would be gratefully received.

Thanks in advance!!

    @ Brian- when you said electric heater is that by chance a tankless heater?

  • Correct

Dentist recommendation

Hi all, I live in Lakeview 60613. I have dental insurance imbedded in my Medicare program and I'm looking for a new dentist. My old one (Trambas) is not responsive to my calls.
Anywho, I have a list of providers so if you can recommend someone, pref. in Lakeview/Uptown, please do.

  • I've gone to this young lady once and was impressed. Convenient location, no hard sell (in fact quite the opposite). I suspect your insurance plan will mesh nicely with what this provider can offer you. http://www.chicagotoothfairy.com/

  • Update: My dentist finally replied and said that my Medicare plan only covers the basics like exams, cleaning and some x-rays.
