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.

    You don't know that, darling. Her "coupon" was for a free $17.99 beauty product. Don't remember many of those around...do you? The bar code on it wasn't going through...a forgery??

    Andrew -- just last week I tried to use a coupon and it didn't go through right away. The clerk tried to scan it several times and it finally went through. Nobody accused me of forgery. In fact, I've never been accused of trying to present a fake coupon and I'm not young. The odds would seem to be that at some point in my 50+ years somebody would have questioned me.

    Also, it doesn't sound like the two men at the story even tried to "put it through." Excerpt from story:

    "Hudson shared a video and explanation on Facebook. She said the coupon was sent to her by a product manufacturer because her product had been defective. The manager on duty at CVS had never seen the coupon before and said he thought it was fraudulent."

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.

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.

Hi Neighbors,

I just moved here, was wondering if anyone had suggestions of good places/groups in the area to meet people. I work till around 7 in the evening and have to come home a walk the dog, so it limits my time span to meet new people.

  • Walk your dog early in the morning =and of course on weekends - ( not to mention when you get home from work) - - - Since you are lucky enough to have a dog - you don't have to worry about where to meet people = = by now I am sure many people talk to you while walking the dog..... I can think of no better way to meet folks of a like mind..... Everyone has given you good ideas.....you can't go wrong - enjoy your new neighborhood.....

Resignation from volunteer HOA board.

Hi,

I am currently the president of our volunteer HOA board in my building. I was volunteered for the position and I no longer am interested in acting as board president. From what I am reading, I have absolutely not obligation to continue as a board member as long as I formally resign.

Does anyone have any experience with this? ANY information is helpful. Thanks!

  • CookieMuffin Edgewater resident.

    By-laws state nothing about board members resigning, that is why I inquired here. I have read all of our by-laws as I am the president. I was just curious if there were any legal ramifications.

    Hi, headsup. My building has a completely volunteer board. We don't have lower assessments for serving on the board. I don't think your comment has any relevancy to my post. I asked for any info regarding resigning, not your opinion on assessments.

  • Helen NoH North of Howard for 55 + years

    I doubt that there's anything in the Illinois law regulating condos regarding this issue. It probably should have been included in your By-laws. Our By-laws (for a co-op not a condo) call for a written letter of resignation.

    I'd take Sarahdonis' advice to heart. While serving on the board is a lot of thankless work, it gives you some say so in how your building is run and funds are spent. I've been on our board for nearly all of the more than 40 years I've lived here.

Hi. Right now i have a studio close to Broadway and on Granville.

I saw another 1 bedroom on Bryn Mawr a little further from the Bryn Mawr CTA and half way towards Clark St.

How does the Bryn Mawr area compare to Granville? I will be traveling in the evenings. Also how do the neighborhoods compare?

I love the stores and accessibility around Granville!

Moving to Albany Park from Rogers Park next week and need to get internet setup. What Internet Service Providers do you use? I currently have RCN and am sad that it is not available in my new area. I've already checked with AT&T and they can only provide 10MBPS. I need at least 50MBPS. Thank you.

  • We’ve had xfinity for several years w/o problems - except you do have to threaten to cancel every year or two

  • See if AT&T fiber is available at your new location. It's $80 a month, no taxes or fees. It's internet only but then you can get subsribe to Hulu, Netflix, YouTube TV and Amazon Prime TV etc. Won't need dish or cable.

    I have fiber and normally get 800mbps upload and download speeds, makes other providers feel like 4800 baud modem from 1980's.

Hey neighbors I just wanted to clue everyone in to what happened on Thursday night/ Friday morning on Kenmore Avenue between Foster and Berwyn. There was an attempted and fortunately unsuccessful drive by sometime between 9-11 pm on our block with multiple shots fired. The suspect who was a member of the Latin Kings was apprehended in the same location the following morning between 8-9 am as he returned to try to finish the job. He was armed at the time of the arrest. I wanted to post about it as a reminder to keep your head on a swivel and that we as neighbors have to look out for eachother.
