    CHICAGO -- For the past seven years, Air Force veteran Anthony Johnson has been selling newspapers out of a beaten up stand at the corner of Milwaukee and Faragutt. Chicago Police Lieutenant John Garrido connected with Anthony about a year ago and decided to give Anthony a better place to sell his newspapers.

    Garrido posted a Facebook Live video asking for help. Volunteers stepped up, and they spent the last few weeks transforming this stand.

    All of this was done with the help of local sponsors like Tony Marino of Marino Jeep. They took Johnson to the local Dick's Sporting Goods and bought Johnson all new winter attire to help him stay warm.

    Johnson makes about $120 a week from his newsstand, and most of the time, he's just trying to by. He says he sleeps outdoors more often than indoors. So, John set up a GoFundMe account to help with Anthony's living expenses.

    "While this is not a long term fix, our hope is this will give Anthony a chance to get a leg up to take care of himself down the road. We will also look into other resources that may be available to him as a vet," the GoFundMe page says.

    Today, the newsstand looks brand new, and artist Peter Bucks is painting two murals on the stand.

    The new and improved newsstand will be unveiled Thursday night at 5:30 p.m.

    Nov 15, 2017
    By PoliceOne Staff

    CHICAGO — After a Chicago police officer went on Facebook Live asking volunteers to help an Air Force veteran renovate his newsstand, the community answered the call and spent weeks transforming the stand.
    WGN-TV reports that Chicago Police Lt. John Garrido first met veteran Anthony Johnson about a year ago. Johnson has been selling newspapers out of a beaten up newsstand at a local corner for the past seven years. After getting to know the veteran, Garrido decided to lend him a hand and provide him with a better place to sell his newspapers.

    Johnson said he makes about $120 a week from selling newspapers and often has to sleep indoors. So, Garrido also decided to set up a GoFundMe account for the veteran to raise money for living expenses.

    After several weeks of work from volunteers, the veteran’s new and improved newsstand will be unveiled on Thursday night.

    Garrido is no stranger to helping others. He and his wife also run the Garrido Stray Rescue Foundation, which supports “no kill” community coalitions helping cats and dogs find homes. His efforts have helped countless stray pets.

    Ald. Arena pledges to bring 50 CHA units to the ward
    by BRIAN NADIG Alderman John Arena (45th) has pledged to bring 50 Chicago Housing Authority-sponsored apartments to the 45th Ward by the end of his term in the spring of 2019. Arena and six other aldermen recently signed the pledge as part of an effort that they say will help end segregation on the North and Northwest Side.
    http://nadignewspapers.com
  • It would have been totally different if Arena didn't declare war on his constituents. I found out back in April the state wasn't going to fund this fiasco and the more people like RR continue, the less likely 5150 will come to pass.

  • noman50 in this together

    Isn’t it part of Arena’s responsibility to at least make an attempt to sell his aspirational projects to constituents in his ward? You know, work with the people living around here, who have some “skin in the game” on major ideas bubbling up by the powers that be. I would think that if he feels very strongly about an issue he would want to effectively marshal as much public support. Or doesn’t he think this kind of way of governance is possible?

    The original post is well meaning but not very effective. The Executive branch, not Congress, is responsible for how US government agencies and department operate. The influence of your local Congressman on the USPS is limited, since all Congress does with the USPS is approve their requests for rate increases and budgets and changes to the days upon which mau[il is delivered.

    The USPS is organised like a private business, which means that the local postmasters are responsible to regional managers and to the independent security group that monitors mail for theft and mishandling, the Postal Inspectors.

    Each post office has service complaint forms which go to the local PO's postmaster. ou keep a paper copy. The online USPS.com website has a similar form which is sent to the office of the Postmaster Generl, and copied to the postal Inspection group and the local postmaster. I recommend the online form because it cannot be intercepted or lost. You can print a copy of your online submission, which gets a tracking number.

    Regarding paying bills online, many people, including those who use online services are unclear on how it works.

    The way to minimise your chances of identity theft is to limit the number of organizations with whom you voluntarily share personal information. Paying bills is not a leak of the information needed for identity theft. At most, it can be used in combination with public information to compromise that particular account.

    Whether you physically mail a paper check or have your bank handle the transaction, the information in that transaction is the same. The one easiest to be lost or stolen is USPS mail.

    If you wish to reduce exposure of personal information, do not directly pay bills at each payees site by credit card; have your bank do it. Set up the payments with them, they use direct electronic transfer when possible and send checks at no cost to you when not. Those payments contain the account number that the merchant has assigned to you and the bank's account number, not yours.

    You can use online bank payment services just like writing checks. You can maintain a check register, enter the transaction number and amount assigned to each payment. If a paper check mailed by the bank does not clear within 10 business days, your bankl notifies you. You can print copies of transactions individually, or in groups. Most banks will still mail you a monthly paper statement unless you opt for email.

    When necessary to pay at a website, use Paypal or a similar service, which will not reveal your credit card number to the merchant, or one of the credit cards with 0 liability for online fraud. When possible, using an aggregation site like Amazon, Alibaba or Walmart will let you buy from many merchants while sharing limted crdit card account information only with the aggregator.

Efforts being made to address issues with students waiting at bus stop at Nagle-Northwest Hwy site

Update: Taft sends message to parents urging that students wait for bus on sidewalk instead of at the gas station. Also, the Number 86 bus can be boarded on Natoma outside of the school instead of at the Nagle-Northwest Hwy intersection. In the past some students have said that they prefer boarding the bus on Nagle because they can buy a snack at the gas station and that the buses on Natoma are too crowded. http://nadignewspapers.com/2017/10/31/concerns-raised-about-students-congregating-at-nagle-northwest-hwy-while-waiting-for-bus/

    the snags that i've experienced during rush hour recently are hardly any worse than those i experienced when i took the same route for 7 years prior to moving a mile and a half south on Central. I definitely feel that the increased traffic is being overstated. maybe we were at different periods of rush hour. YMMV apparently.

Last January, I responded to a request from the Alderman's office for volunteers to work on this year's capital improvement plan. This process is called Participatory Budgeting (PB). In my first meeting, some 20+ residents attended. Following orientation, we were charged with reaching out to the community for input on the capital needs of the Ward.

The PB volunteers organized the input into categories. Once organized, the community input tended to fall into four categories. To fully consider each category, the PB volunteers divided into 4 committees, one for each category. The task was to study each recommendation and vet them for appropriateness given City capital improvement guidelines and the cost of each recommendation. Determining cost was fairly easy as the City's capital funds can only be committed to approved vendors by the City and at the City agreed upon cost.

I served on the Beautification Committee. Our Committee had 37 recommended items to consider. By the September 15th deadline, we narrowed the list to a final four recommendations. I am rather pleased with the work our small Committee did. The final four recommendations were ours and ours alone.

As volunteers, if residents don't vote, our work was in vain. Thus, I encourage you to vote. The first vote you will cast is one determining the percent of the one million capital dollars to be spent on Streets. If you do not like any of the PB's sixteen recommendations you are free to vote for 100% of the budget to be devoted to Streets. Similarly, you are then asked to vote for up to six improvement projects. If you can't support more than a few of the projects, vote for a higher percent to be allocated to Streets and Alleys.

Independent of your political preferences, consider volunteering for next year's PB process. I enjoyed meeting with fellow Ward residents and found the experience illuminating in terms of community needs and how the City works.

    In his NPR interview Milo says "I'm a provocateur" -- i.e. a person who deliberately behaves controversially in order to provoke argument or other strong reactions; also "a virtuous troll or a troll for Jesus" who trolls "righteously" to say things others (in the U.S.) can't due to "the language police."

    He spouts and spews many judgements with perceived impunity and without supporting evidence. And he argues that he's not a hypocrite, but all those others are because "they think they're virtuous." With that, the self-proclaimed "virtuous troll" loses credibility.

    Sporadic, vapid, fast-talking balderdash ... YET interspersed with a few bits that stick. Too few among all the spew IMO. He could do better if he cared to.

    When a person is too extreme, too obnoxious, too abrasive, they appeal to and draw a narrow audience. If ppl such as Milo intend to do good, that narrow audience limits their impact. But if ppl such as Milo want to be outspoken, famous and wealthy, his formula is working. Time will tell if his so-called 15 minutes is a flash-in-the-pan or a lasting gig.

John Juszynski - I found your Ventra U-Pass

Are you John Juszynski or do you know him? I found his student U-Pass Ventra card with his picture on it. I'd prefer to get it back to him than have him go through the trouble of replacing it. Can't find him on facebook.

Construction at Laramie & Sunnyside

Does anybody have a clue why construction is starting at 7am and going until 10pm? After calling the city, they told me they think emergency. I don't think so, No Parking signs have been posted since late September. Every day more construction equipment shows up. Last night homes on Sunnyside had No Water all day.

Does anybody have a clue why construction is starting at 7am and going until 10pm? After calling the city, they told me they think emergency. I don't think so, No Parking signs have been posted since late September. Every day more construction equipment shows up. Last night homes on Sunnyside had No Water all day. There was also no notice given to anybody. The Alderman isn't telling, but say they will try to get the construction to start a bit later in the morning. If I turn on my lawn mower before 8am I know I can get a ticket for noise. The city obviously is special and can run heavy duty machines at 7am. The machinery is shaking the building. As residents I think we are entitled to know what is going on, especially if the water is going to be turned off....

  • Initially they projected being finished with this work by November 3. Let's hope they keep to this schedule.

  • Something to consider, distribution of hand written notices so that those without a computer know what is going on, when and why... Not having water and not being given notice really sucks.
