    If you read all the stories about this incident, maybe it would change your opinion. He did not start the fight. The other two men did.

    I"ve done further reading on this incident and realized I reacted before knowing enough about the case. One drawback of this site is it doesn't allow edits/deletion.

Auto repair

Folks: Tom and Jerry's Auto Repair? Anyone have any experience with them or any other reliable body shop in the area.

  • Tom & Jerry's doesn't patch rust? That may be true. I remember I took my car in and asked them about some rust on the back panel and they were honest about it. They didn't just patch and charge me. They said if they "fixed" it, it would just come back and happen again because that make/model/year was notorious for rusting in that area. I appreciate the honesty over just trying to get a sale.

Explosives in Garbage Cans

Last night around 9:45 pm the four white male teenagers pictured here put an M-80 in our neighbor's garbage can and blew plastic and metal shrapnel all over both properties. (The one lighting the grenade has shoulder length hair and baseball cap on backward.) This occurred in the 5800 block alley between Nina and West Circle. Please take a look and see if you recognize them? Their parents might want to know what they were up to last night (other than smoking weed, which is also visible on the security footage). 16th District police have been notified.

    CHB, sad to say I've had similar experiences in our neighborhood. And the aura of entitlement is not confined to Taft kids or cops' kids. It's kind of pervasive.

    Affordable housing in the Far Northwest Side: A tale of two projects
    The economic bustle in and around O'Hare International Airport yields a strong job market for working-class Chicagoans, a market that's only going to get stronger when O'Hare's long-awaited expansion starts. Plenty of mass transit, including the Blue Line and an array of CTA bus routes, connects Far Northwest Side neighborhoods with the rest of the city.

    "A look at the latter case first. Near Norwood Park, GlenStar Properties wants to build a 299-unit apartment complex along the Kennedy Expressway, just east of O’Hare. As many as 30 of the units would be deemed affordable housing, which means rent for those units would be within reach for people making 60 percent or less of the neighborhood’s median income.

    The location would be ideal — within walking distance of CTA bus routes, the Blue Line’s Cumberland station, and a Greyhound bus stop.

    Up until recently, however, GlenStar’s proposal looked like a victim of aldermanic prerogative — an unwritten rule that gives aldermen veto power over projects within their wards.

    The complex is proposed in the predominantly white 41st Ward, where Ald. Anthony Napolitano presides. Last fall at a city Zoning Committee hearing, Napolitano said he opposed the project because of concerns about the impact on traffic and local schools. In a lawsuit seeking to get the project approved, GlenStar says Napolitano failed to back up those assertions with data. GlenStar says the real reason for Napolitano’s opposition was the project’s inclusion of affordable housing.

    The zoning committee deferred action on the project indefinitely, and the deadline for a vote on the project expired in January. However, GlenStar officials were recently told their proposal will be put on the agenda for the Zoning Committee’s meeting June 26."..."What do the GlenStar and Full Circle proposals share in common? They each offer affordable housing in a part of the city where the job market’s arrow is up and the demand for lower-wage earners is sure to grow. That’s something that should be enabled. Neighborhoods are at their healthiest when they strike a balance between growth and affordability. Arena gets that. Napolitano doesn’t."

  • OParker Native Chicagoan

    Why do the developers and their supporters insist on wanting to make this and other projects about race or poverty when all many of us are asking is not to put in high density housing? Keep the buildings to 4 stories or less and include the 30 assisted housing units and I believe they would find a lot more support.

    6/7/18 Letter to the Chicago Tribune Editor in response to the 6/6 Tribune Editorial:"Letter: Aldermen have too much control over housing in their wards
    June 7, 2018, 1:40 PM

    The Chicago Tribune editorial “Affordable housing in the Far Northwest Side: A tale of two projects” urges affordable housing to be considered in the Far Northwest Side of Chicago. For over a century, Far Northwest Side communities have, by design, been residentially segregated. Even today, aldermanic prerogative, an informal practice with no grounding in law, has been manipulated in an unjust manner to exclude under-represented populations. The Far Northwest Side of Chicago needs local and citywide leadership to step up and ensure healthy, inclusive and affordable communities are designed for the future, especially in light of plans to expand O’Hare International Airport.

    The O’Hare expansion is expected to generate 60,000 construction jobs and tens of thousands of permanent jobs in upcoming years. Airport workers will need affordable housing to eliminate hours of commute time. Lessening daily commute time improves quality of life for individuals and families, allowing more time to be spent with children, attend school, work out and become engaged community volunteers. Because of misuse of aldermanic prerogative, the GlenStar Properties project development, containing 299 units, including 30 units of affordable housing, has been in limbo for almost a year. Unless City Council zoning committee members take the high road for the greater good of the city and choose to ignore aldermanic prerogative, in a rare and almost unprecedented manner, the project will not be approved."

    Aldermanic prerogative needs to be re-examined to ensure it is not used to promote segregation in the future.".."Monica Dillon, Chicago"

Operation Help A Hero

Operation Help A Hero
There are hundreds of homeless Veterans in Chicago. The City of Chicago is working hard to create a system where any episode of homelessness is rare and brief through the End Veterans Homelessness Initiative (EVHI). As we house these veterans, the transition from shelter or transitional housing to permanent housing, means many veterans do not have basic items to set up a home. Mayor Emanuel, the City Council, and Jewel-Osco are joining together in the month of June to help homeless Veterans in Chicago by creating move-in kits. Please help by donating new household items.
