Farewell Dear Neighbors

It’s been a good run here on Everyblock. May you all do well and be safe. Thank you for being caring neighbors.

  • Catbus Philosopher, Third-Class

    Having seen the conversations from other neighborhoods, I'm grateful that our share of trolls and racists was relatively low. Relatively.

Editorial: Cigarettes. Drunken driving. Next: Guns?

To most people, a drunken driver is a public menace to be jailed, not a mistake-prone tippler to be tolerated. There’s a stigma attached to DUI and cigarette smoking. Americans resent the preventable deaths they cause. Will Americans now decide that minimizing gun deaths should come next?

Public attitudes can move swiftly when people get angry — and stay that way. When is the last time someone lit up in your presence? Most smokers don’t even ask anymore. They skulk...

To most people, a drunken driver is a public menace to be jailed, not a mistake-prone tippler to be tolerated. There’s a stigma attached to DUI and cigarette smoking. Americans resent the preventable deaths they cause. Will Americans now decide that minimizing gun deaths should come next?

Public attitudes can move swiftly when people get angry — and stay that way. When is the last time someone lit up in your presence? Most smokers don’t even ask anymore. They skulk outside.

Gun control activism is risk to bottom line, gun maker says

The maker of Smith & Wesson firearms said gun control activism poses a risk to its business, according to a company filing.

American Outdoor Brand Corp., which on Wednesday reported a 25 percent decline in fiscal fourth-quarter revenue compared with last year, listed the "actions of social activists" as a risk factor in its annual report.

Shares fell as much as 12 percent Thursday in New York, the most intraday in six months, and were down 4.6% to $12.62 at 12:13 p.m. Rival gunmaker Sturm Ruger & Co. fell 4.8 percent to $57.45.

    Cigarettes. Drunken driving. Next: Guns?
    One of the greatest public health triumphs of the last century impressively still gains momentum: Millions of Americans have quit smoking - and more will follow. Smoking among adults hit a record low in 2017 - to about 14 percent from nearly 16 percent a year earlier.

  • Sorry, one of the highest gun violent city’s. I am not here to argue with anyone. I am just saying we have bigger issues to tackle then worrying about law abiding citizens. That’s all. Have a good week everyone.

  • To J Sebek, No, I will not stop worrying about the inner city. All that garbage is moving our way, slowly but surely. You can't just bury your head in the sand and pretend that it does not effect you.

Shooting around 10:50pm Monday

We heard gun fire near Kimball and Montrose. I believe someone was shot on the 4400 block of N. Bernard. Does anyone have any details about this incident?

Internet Service Providers

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.

Outstanding Nanny Available

My nanny of 2 years will be available starting in June. I am the mother of 5 and a former educator with high standards. Our nanny is wonderful. She also helps with light housekeeping. Her primary language is Spanish, but she communicates well using Google Translate. My youngest son is bilingual because of his fantastic nanny. In the 2 years she has worked for me she missed only 2 days of work do to illness. She is extremely reliable, trust worthy, punctual, loving and patient. I am happy to introduce her to a new family.

Help? Anyone know this car?

There was a '85 Toyota 4 Runner with MI plates and a for sale sign in the window parked on Francisco just south of Wilson. Even though it was there for a few days we procrastinated and did not call. The phone number on the sign had a (312) area code. We would love to talk with the owner if it is still for sale.
