This is my first time voting in Cook County and I'm trying to be an informed voter, especially on the judicial races that have me baffled. Listening to WBEZ, I learned about a really helpful nonprofit, nonpartisan group-injusticewatch.org-that digs deeply into the records of judicial candidates to see if they've been sanctioned or reprimanded or involved in misconduct. The group, formed by investigative journalists, has put out a pocket guide, which I found really helpful. The group doesn't do endorsements. It just prrovides information.

Has anyone heard anything about the church at 1244 W. Thorndale being razed to make way for condos?
Currently the church provides space for the Chicago Friends School, but, for 31 years it was the Rogers Park Montessori School. And, for those 31 years, I was one of the teachers there. Lots of great memories!
I will be sad to see it go even though it is far less than state of the art.
btw, for any of you devoted followers, I'm the mom whose daughter posted about losing her license and credit card. Thanks for all those supportive comments!

Hi all a friend of mine heard about a developer called candea that was featured on DNA Info doing a new 39 unit building in edgewater soon and asked me if I knew anything about them as he's looking to move back up to this area. I asked around and one friend who said (through hearse though) which is why i'm inquiring, that they dont communicate once you sign on the dotted line and will screw you over.
Since it was hearse, does anyone have any direct info on this developer?

Hey everyone, my husband and I are currently renting in Lakeview and are considering buying a condo in Edgewater near Winthop and Catalpa. Just wondering if anyone on here would be willing to share your thoughts about living in the community! We do not have any kids right now but are thinking of starting a family in the next few years. We'd love to hear about how you feel about the sense of community there, things to do nearby, and also your thoughts on crime as the crime maps we have checked are a little vague!
