Log Cabin Republican Calls Police on Wrong Woman

In what appears to be another case of calling the police because someone is Black, Morry Matson, Log Cabin Republican candidate for Edgewater's Mayor, has a lot of explaining to do. His last claim to fame was promoting a multi-million dollar carnival boardwalk in front of lots of people's homes and cutting off their unobstructed views of the lake.

    Black woman says CVS manager called police because she had wrong coupon
    Camilla Hudson wanted to use a manufacturer's coupon at CVS on North Broadway on Friday night, but a manager who said he'd never seen a coupon like that called the police, she said in a Facebook post. "So, THIS just happened: I had the police called on me for attempting to use a coupon @ the CVS Pharmacy located at 6150 N.

    People like me tearing the country apart? You have been propagandized well by the Fox media crowd who excuse tearing children from parents at the border. In the past it was the Jews tearing countries apart. You've just found new scapegoats.

    Personally, I would have sent him to training and then put him on the north shore where he would be happier.

    Andrew, I see you gave me a "thumbs down", but what in the world did I say that you could you possibly object to? Did you somehow not get that I said that it's destructive to jump to the conclusion that this guy is a racist before hearing the whole story? Gabriel, I'm confused. He gave us both the old "thumbs down" response even though you and I were not in total agreement. How can he disagree with both of us when we we pretty much disagreeing with each other?Lol. I give up. Gabriel, maybe we can continue our dialogue at a later date, and on the "Next Door" site. This EB forum is hopeless.

Does anyone own a pneumatic wrench that I can rent?

I want to change the anode in my water heater. I cannot get the old one out. Yes, I have a 24" socket wrench and a cheater bar. It still won't budge.
I hate to have to disconnect the gas line, and water lines, AND remove the blower just to get more room to work.
I need a little help.
Do you have any ideas?

    With 710 apartments, Cedar Street Companies' proposed development at Broadway and Argyle Street Uptown stands out, but not just for its size. The complex - along with similar projects by CRG and Praedium Development - is part of a growing number of luxury apartment mega-projects in a neighborhood previously known more for affordable housing.

Watching fireworks from Cycle and Saddle was a scary experience on July 4th if you were at Osterman Beach at Ardmore. 2 Private groups were constantly sending off HUGH fireworks in an attempt to compete with Cycle & Saddle. The noise was deafening- the sparks showered down on observers - and the Cycle and Saddle show was completed blocked out. Despite the very dangerous situation- Not a policeman in sight despite the obvious illegal activity. Watching Cycle and Saddle fireworks was impossible. Many finally left - and i suspect will never return to Osterman Beach for fireworks. This is a shame - a few individuals were allowed to ruin what should have been a great event. I suspect the high rises surrounding Ardmore were not happy either. Did they call police? The Alderman needs to give this appropriate attention next year. What a shame.

  • headsup not available

    not the black high rise - we were on the Ardmore side of Osterman beach and they were shooting big rockets on that beach - sound blasting off the high rises and had sparks settling on the beach causing people to scatter creating a wide 'no man's land"

  • Helen NoH North of Howard for 55 + years

    Why don't you just join Saddle and Cycle, headsup? I believe you claim to have the proper upbringing and background. That way you can enjoy the fireworks from the club next year and won't have to put up with the riff raff on the public beach. If you apply, though, I suggest you use the proper name for the club and not Cycle and Saddle as in your OP.

Is there a place to meet nice people?

I've lived here for 4 years in a great building and I love the neighborhood. The only thing is, most of my friends and social events are south and I have to travel to see them.
Is there a hangout or someplace where I can meet and get to know my Edgewater neighbors?
Thanks! :)

Revival - Final Good-bye

Exciting and busy night at Revival. We will miss this fine establishment

  • The failure rate in the restaurant business is pretty high and Revival had some strong competition that it simply couldn't match. At Revival's price point people understandably expected more than just a little glitz sprinkled on top of average food. The market place is ruthless in a competitive environment like Chicago's.

  • darn....
    We were given a Revival gift card, and had hoped to try them out for brunch.
