Seeking a Community Cartoonist

I am seeking a person with a measurable degree of illustrative talent to dipict in cartoon board format an absurd politically-motived arrest, harrassment, and persecution that is ongoing. This may be the best way to let people/public know what happened and is happening.

I am an artist myself, I can do it but its not my strongest point this type of illustration. It wouldn't be a full-length graphic novel or even close, could be as few as 10-20 frames. If this is something you can do please reach out to me, we can discuss some compensation I will respect your time and talent.

Thank ya kindly and hope to hear from ya.

So what happened with the Jeff Littleton court date of Dec 15?

Hmmm....maybe I am missing something but where is the posting of the grand victory over Jeff Littleton? His court date was Dec. 15.

Did it get dismissed? Where is the
alleged Go Pro camera evidence?

The alleged victim?

Hmmm....

  • Mute, I didn't get kicked off...just took a break to actually attend to more important things like my own job (hear that?) and family. I was about to start my own thread asking this exact question of what happened in court on Friday...

    I'll be sure to share any further...

    I'll be sure to share any further threats I get, but in the meantime I can only hope that "Christinee" and her sentiments are what's actually happened and we here on EB may, at least for a while, be spared the forcible attempts to violate every single thread here on EB for the Uptown and surrounding communities with further rantings. Peace out and have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone!

Does Everyblock tolerate assault and battery now?

I have seen two posts on here about someone in the neighborhood assaulting another resident.that got taken down. I have no idea why it's okay to take that kind of information down, as it's clearly relevant to the neighborhood and all of our safety. There are crime posts on here all the time about attacks and assaults in the neighborhood. Somehow these posts can't stay up?

I have seen two posts on here about someone in the neighborhood assaulting another resident.that got taken down. I have no idea why it's okay to take that kind of information down, as it's clearly relevant to the neighborhood and all of our safety. There are crime posts on here all the time about attacks and assaults in the neighborhood. Somehow these posts can't stay up? I know that the person involved is a prominent and frequent poster here (initials JL), but that shouldnt excuse that person or create a situation where that poster can sanitize what he did on a public street. Especially when the information is in the public record.

I just don't get it. I moved here three years ago and am sick that someone can assault and threaten a neighbor without anyone in the neighborhood knowing.

    This thread was started on Nov. 5th. - and unless I'm reading it wrong, the threatening message is dated Nov. 22nd - so he had been taking it on the chin for weeks before that message was sent. Again - the message is definitely not okay, but I think at this point, anyone reading this thread might genuinely wonder where the menace really lies. I only commented because I received an EB message today that resurrected someone's comments directed at me from many weeks ago (not sure how/why that happens). Hopefully this will end after tomorrow's (?) hearing.

Technical Wizard needed

I am seeking to hire a person of any age who can be my go to person for all questions technical. Example: teach me how to download and play podcasts, create interactions between computer, phone, tv, tablet, firestick, echo and so on. We are PC and android users, no apple products.

We don't have any kids and neither of us are naturals. We are glad to consider teens/students who are responsible and interested in making some money. Best case scenario is that we have someone on retainer upon whom we can call as needed and will have time to respond or come over. I will pay better than minimum wage.

Lincoln Square residents.

  • I've got a great guy for you. He has been my go to guy for many years now. His name is John Cummings phone 773-412-3867

  • Richard Wolf …It takes two to lie; one to lie and one to listen

    I speak as an IT professional.

    If you want quality help, you're probably going to have to pony up substantially more than minimum wage…especially if you want someone to visit you, in-person, and be ready to take random calls from you…you should expect to pay at least $50 per interaction,...

    If you want quality help, you're probably going to have to pony up substantially more than minimum wage…especially if you want someone to visit you, in-person, and be ready to take random calls from you…you should expect to pay at least $50 per interaction, per hour, at the very minimum.

    I don't want to sound cynical, but I would extremely be wary of anyone (teen, student, otherwise) who would offer to provide you tech support for around $15 per hour…that would effectively be a "too good to be true" deal.
