Broadway Bank space

It looks like something is moving into the Broadway Bank building. Does anyone know what’s happening there?

  • If you look at the posts on their Facebook page (linked above), they seem to have been working on turning the bank building into an event space since the end of 2015 (nearly two years), so it is not likely related to the event space on Ridge.

  • I really appreciate for including this topic.this is such a very good topic and interesting informations.i really like to read this article.i got a lot of informations from this article.i hope you include more post.thank you. http://www.ozoneinsuria.com/

Rogers Park Chamber Volunteers at NEIU Career Fair and University Honors Program

The Rogers Park Chamber of Commerce spent a busy day last Thursday, November 16, 2017, at Northeastern Illinois University NEIU.

The Chamber participated in the College of Business and Management Career Fair. Chamber President Bill Morton and interns, Emilia Jamarillo and Trudy Leong, greeted and discussed Chamber internship business, social media, and legal opportunities with many of the 1,000 students majoring in Accounting, Finance, Marketing, Management and Business Administration.

The Rogers Park Chamber of Commerce spent a busy day last Thursday, November 16, 2017, at Northeastern Illinois University NEIU.

The Chamber participated in the College of Business and Management Career Fair. Chamber President Bill Morton and interns, Emilia Jamarillo and Trudy Leong, greeted and discussed Chamber internship business, social media, and legal opportunities with many of the 1,000 students majoring in Accounting, Finance, Marketing, Management and Business Administration.

After the Career Fair, Biil Morton and Trudy volunteered with the University Honors Program at the North Park Village Senior Apartments at 5801 N. Pulaski Rd. to help at the Apartments' annual Thanksgiving dinner for the residents.

UHP Director Dr. Jon Hageman sent out a last-minute call to UHP students for help and eloquently stated the need.

"Many of the residents are alone and have no family in the area (or at all)--the holidays are times when those residents are particularly alone, and even something small like a meal served by a smiling face lets them know they matter—it gives them a sense of worth and human dignity that is otherwise lacking, or in very short supply.

For me, it’s easy to see work and other things as overwhelming. Taking a couple of hours to serve others whose lives are in many ways much more difficult than mine helps me keep things in perspective. I have seen how a small amount of time on my part can make a big difference in the life of someone who otherwise feels abandoned. Ultimately, we all depend on help from others, and it’s important to repay that in some way."

Chamber President Bill Morton appreciates giving back and providing interns with a well-rounded internship experience, which includes Chamber volunteer work.

Mr. Morton looks forward to Chamber involvement in future university career fairs and supporting his interns' volunteer opportunities. Trudy is an NEIU student and enrolled in the University Honors Program.

  • Rob

    It's good to see the chamber instill into its interns the values of self-promotion and speaking about yourself in the the 3rd person.

Entry for Monday, 11?20/17

Let's see if the media follows the story:
Carjacking and murder charges have been filed against a Wisconsin man who was in a stolen vehicle during a crash that killed his alleged accomplice Wednesday morning on the South Side.

Deangelo M. Williams, 21, was charged with one felony count of aggravated vehicular hijacking with a firearm, one felony count of robbery armed with a firearm and two felony counts of murder while committing another forcible felony, according to a statement from Chicago Police.

Williams and a 19-year-old man were wearing masks when they carjacked a male at gunpoint at 9:48 a.m. Wednesday as the victim was getting out of his vehicle in the 1000 block of West 61st Street, police said.

They drove off in the stolen vehicle with police pursuing them, police said. The stolen vehicle crashed less than 10 minutes later in the 4900 block of West Wentworth.

The 19-year-old man driving the stolen vehicle was pronounced dead at the scene...
Why do we point this out?
We were told in roll call in 007 that the surviving offender was charged with murder approved by the ASA only later the great office of Kim Foxxx denied the charges. Then the Chief of Detectives over turned them and charged him with murder again. You can only guess what's going to happen in court. Ridiculous.

New Public Art Gallery & Venue on Granville Avenue and Winthrop

It's really cool to see that someone who has the means, support a neighborhood they believe so much in versus hoarding their cash or investing it elsewhere. Not sure if others heard about the new venue that Rae Ann and her husband developed and instituted in the neighborhood recently.

Granville area is really becoming a great part of the Edgewater Neighborhood to live in. It's because of YOU, me and people like the Rae Ann (hope I am not messing up her name). You create your environment, your reality.

Excited to continue to build a great place to live with all of you.

Tuesday Trivia: Double Intersections

Our answer: Sheridan and Broadway.

    Tuesday Trivia: Double Intersections
    OK, Chicago cartography fans. Name a pair of streets in Chicago that intersect each other twice. Our answer: Sheridan and Broadway. Sheridan and Broadway meet in Lake View where the northbound Sheridan makes a 90 degree turn and goes all lateral, crossing its soulmate. Sheridan and Broadway also meet four miles north in Rogers Park, [...]
    https://www.chicagoarchitecture.org

  • Phil L. property owner/lincoln square

    methinks Sheridan and Broadway is not the correct answer. Sheridan and Broadway intersect 3 times, the 2 mentioned above and once more in Uptown at Montrose. The only street that is intersected twice is Elston and Milwaukee.

  • Phil L - you're correct about Sheridan/Broadway, but the quiz didn't ask which streets intersect EXACTLY twice. Someone told me about a law school professor who famously always used this question on a test - "Illinois has 101 counties? T/F". Well, Illinois has 102 counties, but it also has 101 counties.

On Wednesday November 8th, Rogers Park Chamber of Commerce President, Bill Morton, traveled to the Back of the Yards neighborhood to meet with the Midwest Workers Association at their headquarters to find a solution to poverty in the Rogers Park neighborhood.

The Midwest Workers Association is a free and voluntary unincorporated membership association which services workers, temporary workers and other low-paid workers and their families. The organization’s mission is to alleviate our member’s most important-poverty- at the root.

“We will participate with the Midwest Workers Association at future Illinois Commerce Commission meetings to fight for keeping utilities affordable for residences because nobody should live without heat in the winter time” said Bill Morton, president of the Rogers Park Chamber of Commerce.

The actions that Rogers Park Chamber of Commerce will take to support Midwest Workers Association are distributing the Association’s postcards, inviting them to speaking engagements in Rogers Park, and offering outreach table opportunities at our local stores.

'Adriana's Angels' shines light on refugees, diversity in children's books

Carpet Cleaning Recommendations Needed, Cat Urine Stain

Hi all,

My cat (the one in my profile photo) has been peeing on my low pile carpet and the staining is present on the reverse/bottom side. The carpet is 6ft by 5ft 9in. I'm not sure of the material, but I'm guessing synthetic. I'm a renter, but the carpet was bought by the previous tenant, so it's technically mine.

Hi all,

My cat (the one in my profile photo) has been peeing on my low pile carpet and the staining is present on the reverse/bottom side. The carpet is 6ft by 5ft 9in. I'm not sure of the material, but I'm guessing synthetic. I'm a renter, but the carpet was bought by the previous tenant, so it's technically mine. I'd rather get the carpet professionally cleaned than have to buy a new one. I don't care if the color changes, I just need a way to protect the wood floors and get the odor removed. I've already tried cleaning it by hand, but given the heavy staining on the reverse/bottom size, I'm concerned it'll eventually disintegrate and maybe stain the wood flooring.

Can someone please recommend an inexpensive place to get my small low pile carpet professionally cleaned in Edgewater? Can I take it to a regular dry cleaner or no? This is my first time having to do this.

Thanks!

(My cat is medically fine. He's recently been to the vet.)

    My initial post was over a year ago. I resolved the issue then.

    In case someone else runs into the same problem, this is how I successfully dealt with it.

    1) My cat had recently been to the vet who said he was medically healthy.
    2) I got a spray bottle of "Nature's Miracle 3in1" and heavily sprayed the carpet, following the directions on the bottle.
    3) I got a very large clear thick painter's tarp and folded it up to fit the carpet. I then duct taped it to the underside of the carpet to prevent any moisture from going through the carpet.
    4) I moved my furniture around, so that the spot my cat was peeing in would be blocked, in case his scent was still there. The areas around the litterbox are now also blocked, so none of the wood floor is exposed. (The litterbox is wedged in a corner with an additional tray to catch kitty litter as he exits the litterbox.)
    5) I also created additional barriers to keep my dog from getting to the litter boxes around my apt. I'm guessing that my dog's litterbox intrusions are what caused the problems in the first place. As disgusting as it is, it's common for dogs to want to eat cat feces. One theory is that cats pass a lot of protein into their feces, and that's why dogs want to eat them. Dogs are scavengers. And yes, my dog regularly goes to the vet for his annual exam and shots and is medically healthy.

  • Get a pheremone spray. Our cat did this a few times on our door frame when he got a whiff of another cat next door. We sprayed this stuff on the doorframe called No Mark that I got at Pet Co next to Jewel and it works SO WELL. He is like an entirely different cat now. It relaxes them and takes away their urge to spray and go outside the box.

    Everyone had a free taste of Tequila Cazadores inspired tacos. This was a complement to our neighborhood restaurants, not competition. This celebrity event brought visitors to Rogers Park, who patronized both Empirical Brewery and Mayne Stage. This was not your regular for-profit, food truck, taking dollars back to where they came from, instead of being cycled throughout our community again.

    It is good to have philanthropists visit the neighborhood. What I especially enjoy about Chef Aaron Sanchez, is that he launched the Aarón Sánchez Scholarship Fund, an initiative empowering aspiring chefs from the Latin community to follow their dreams and attend culinary school.

    Binny's Proposed For Former Whole Foods Site
    EVANSTON, IL - A libational replacement for the shuttered Whole Foods store at 1111 Chicago Ave. in Evanston is being considered, as Binny's Beverage Depot is interested in moving into the site. A community meeting has been scheduled by 3rd Ward Alderman Melissa Wynne for next week to discuss the plans.

    Brad and Soter, it's pretty clear from the article in Patch as well as one in Evanston Now, that Binnys is interested in the site so I'm unclear why you would question their interest. The only strings attached seem to be possible objections from the neighbors. There's no way I would drive to Lincolnwood to buy a few bottles of wine or beer, but a Binny's a mile north of me would be great.

    Sandy, yes a CTA bus, #205, runs south on Chicago Ave. from Church St. to the Howard terminal and north from the terminal to Davis.

    Since Mr. Binstein himself turned up for Ald. Wynne's community meeting on Wednesday night, I think it safe to say that Binny's is seriously interested in this site. No surprise, the local liquor dealers, including Vinic, object to the competition.

Why I support the proposed public safety training academy

As you may know, the City Council last Wednesday voted 48-1 to authorize the acquisition of 30 acres of vacant land in the City’s West Garfield park neighborhood to construct a training facility for police officers, fire fighters and paramedics. Mayor Emanuel sponsored the measure and because it involved a real estate transaction, it came before the City Council Committee on Housing and Real Estate, which I chair.

As you may know, the City Council last Wednesday voted 48-1 to authorize the acquisition of 30 acres of vacant land in the City’s West Garfield park neighborhood to construct a training facility for police officers, fire fighters and paramedics. Mayor Emanuel sponsored the measure and because it involved a real estate transaction, it came before the City Council Committee on Housing and Real Estate, which I chair.

Allow me to explain why I was one of the 48 alderman to support the proposal. Simply put, the new academy is a necessary step in the long road to reforming our broken Police Department.

The proposed public safety training academy is in direct response to the U.S. Justice Department’s call to improve police officer training procedures and facilities.

For a further explanation, please read my full statement on this important police reform issue:

No, those recent tax hikes haven't improved Chicago's financial health

From Crain's Greg Hinz and Truth in Accounting:

In a report that City Hall won't like much, a Chicago-based watchdog group says hundreds of millions of dollars in recent tax hikes haven't done much to improve Chicago's woeful financial condition—at least so far.

Truth in Accounting, a somewhat conservative research group whose board runs the ideological spectrum, gives the city an F on its overall financial breakdown, saying each Chicagoan would be on the hook for $41,700 in unfunded liabilities if the city shut down tomorrow and had to reconcile its books—more than many people make in an entire year. Overall, it concludes that "Chicago finances (are) still in peril."

  • YakovBok In the RP since 1996

    And yet people will continue to vote the clowns back into office simply because they have a "D" after their names.

  • Dan Miller RP/WR resident since 1978

    Democrats have been running Chicago and the General Assembly for 32 of the last 34 years. Yes, both parties are to blame. But one party deserves more blame than the other, and unless we recognize where blame belongs, our elected leaders will keep digging the financial hole deeper.

Venting

Speaking of parking issues in Rogers Park... an old gentleman across the street on North Shore has a designated handicap spot. When he returns from wherever, he parks in his spot. Then, as soon as an adjacent spot opens up he removes his placard from the window and moves his car there, taking up an extra space.

I fume every time I see this. What’s his deal? Does he just like an unobstructed view of the street? And, (yes, I know you can’t always tell), he doesn’t seem to have a disability.

It just apppears selfish and un-neighborly.

  • The Walk sign on the crosswalk at Addison and Kennedy is not working. It is the sign which faces east as you cross over the northbound entry to the Kennedy walking toward the station.

  • Bob Kastigar 15 Years North Park, bike rider, retired

    That sign doesn't make a lot of sense anyway. When working, the walk light is lit when cars have the green light and are turning to enter the expressway!

    The walk light should be lit when cars on Addison have the red light, and a "No Turn on Red" sign should be posted. Eastbound on Addison cars with an arrow would still need to stop for pedestrians.

Conversation about dangerous intersection of Clark Street & Howard Street

Numerous auto accidents at the intersection of Clark Street and Howard Street, along the Chicago / Evanston border, have raised concerns over the public safety issue.

One noted case involved pedestrians. Would a clear turning lane, and a light to turn left help?

I am asking all of my friends, family to take a moment , remember what it was like to be 19 years old. Dating, competitive sports, traveling, working your first real job, nights with your friends,driving your first beater, getting lost finding your freshman college class,dreaming of your future.

Now in the midst of all of that fun, add fainting without warning, weight gain and swelling 10lb -20lbs in a matter of a few days, exhaustion not eliminated by a good night’s sleep, shoebox filled with daily medications, no salt diet, sneaking the seasoning packs from ramen,many visits to neurologists, cardiologists, nephrologists , twice weekly infusions to stabilize and countless blood draws.
Remember now you are 19 years old. This is the life my grandson Marco has dealt with since he was ten.
For him the attempts to stabilize his kidneys is over. Now we are in the race for his life, a race to give him the youth this disease has stolen.
We fear the tests, the surgery and the pain. But change your focus for a moment, our family fears Marco will not be able to drive or live independently to enjoy the gift of youth so many of us have enjoyed and taken for granted.
people of color needing organs, the closer the match- the better his odds of the transplant giving him the dreams he keeps tucked away for fear they will never be.

It’s a huge commitment, it’s a great sacrifice and not one of you should consider it lightly in anyway. But if you think you would like to donate,even if not for Marco, give that gift to someone else who is waiting to live their best life.

To begin the screening process go to
https://rush.donorscreen.org/register/donate-kidney

Marco Gonzalez is the patient.

I thank you for reading this, for considering donation and for sharing this post with everyone you know.

thanks again

  • I'll hold you and your grandson in my heart. I don't meet donor criteria, but someone will. A close relative of mine died in his forties and four people received organs, which has always comforted me. Because kidneys can also be harvested from living donors, I hope his wait goes quickly.
