    Jeffrey, it really is a surprise you do not work for Goldman Sachs making millions with your expert economic analysis. Ever heard of anecdotal evidence? Do you understand that concept? You cannot take one or two examples and portray that as a trend - you have to gather data, not one or two data points but aggregate data built over time, adjust for inconsistencies, and do an analysis of the current market. Showing a promo for two months of free rent is not evidences of a softer rental market. And maybe the market is getting softer, but that does not mean it is getting so soft that residential projects will be held off. You are just hoping they will be so people like you who live off taxpayers like a tick on a dog have more time before you are priced out of the city. Very smart people who study this data all day are putting millions of their own money into these projects while losers like you who have no job sit on EB crying wolf.

CRIME

DEAR ALL:
We have a situation. I have been specifically targeted for vandalism and it concerns me that it is related to the muggings of November 8th.
On January 4th at 9:52pm a car drove up and parked across the street from our house on Clarendon (exactly where the mugging and beating took place on November 8th). At 9:54:50pm a young man gets out of his car and walks down our street, at 9:55:45pm he returns to his car, at...

DEAR ALL:
We have a situation. I have been specifically targeted for vandalism and it concerns me that it is related to the muggings of November 8th.
On January 4th at 9:52pm a car drove up and parked across the street from our house on Clarendon (exactly where the mugging and beating took place on November 8th). At 9:54:50pm a young man gets out of his car and walks down our street, at 9:55:45pm he returns to his car, at 9:57:02pm he gets back out of his car, heads straight to my classic 1997 Camaro parked in front of my house on Hutchinson, pulls out a large knife tool, and destroys the passenger side of my Camaro. I have it all on tape but unfortunately he was well covered with hoodie including his face, and the cameras could not pick up the license plate number.
I have a strong suspicion that this is in retaliation from my involvement of the muggings.
I am in contact with the lead detective on the muggings case to see how to proceed.
Let's keep an eye out please.

  • Brian..its actually 60660Gal.
    Not 60657..but its okay..you can call me 606!

  • George F in Ravenswood displaced New Yorker

    No problem Mute. Knowledge is power, and forewarned is forearmed, and any other cliches that apply. BTW I consider something that is still cool after twenty years, and stands the test of time, a classic. Except maybe a Yugo.

    Did the city approve your license even without you living there? Did you have to appeal ?

Illinois Police Department call scam (?)

Has anyone recieved any calls from the Illinois Police Department asking for donations. At least once a year I receive a call from people claiming to be from the Illinois Police Department, in the calls they either ask for a donation to help fallen officers or in one call that I recieved recently, the person tried to sell me energy efficiency light bulbs (being that the proceeds benefit families of) As a senior citizen, I have always been aware of scams and have often wondered if this is such.

  • Always look up the Form 990 for not for profit charities. It is filed w/ the Secretary of State.

    The Illinois Police Association ends up giving less than 10% of money raised to police charities on a yearly basis.

    The also have high complaints with consumer groups about not removing phone numbers of those who request being removed.

  • nancy and d3. excellent suggestion. asking simply and politely for that org status can probably tell you all you need to know.

Lakeview -- are the stores open New Years day?

Hi everybody, I wasn't paying attention. Are Whole Foods, Jewel Walmart and other stores open today?

  • Check out websites. Almost all list their store hours on the holidays.

  • Yes...but you have to scour for the locations and there are varying hours with many; like Whole Paycheck (oops...Whole Foods). S0, I figure, just call the location.

Police letting crazies loose

http://www.cwbchicago.com/2017/12/lakeview-man-brandishing-ax-claims-he.html?m=1

This statement in the article
"Police cannot arrest someone based on anonymous complaints" is new to me.

    Lakeview Man Brandishing Ax Claims He Did It Because Of Trump - And Cops Let Him Go
    A Lakeview man was released without charges Saturday evening after he told police that he took out his newly-purchased ax on a CTA bus "because of our current president." Multiple 911 callers reported seeing a white male in a blue and white plaid shirt carrying an ax or waving an ax on the street near the 1300 block of West Wellington shortly after 5 p.m.
    http://www.cwbchicago.com
  • This story makes no sense. Buying an ax from Menards is perfectly legal. Taking the bus with Menards purchases is perfectly legal. How does Trump fit into this story? Trump wants to subsidized coal. An ax is used for chopping wood. This man wants to heat his house using firewood instead of natural gas, something that would please Trump because clean energy is a goal for Libtards and others who hate 'Merica. And now you know the rest of the story...

  • BettyR Northcenter

    If the man with the ax did not do anything wrong and there is not a legitimate complaint against him, the police can’t do anything.

    Trump was in the story because allegedly the man with the ax brought up his name.

    Way to go off track, Mark Jones.
