    We visit the real castle that sits atop a Far South Side Chicago hill
    On the top of a hill on the Far South Side there sits an ancient castle. Understandably, because it is the city's only castle, it has long held a special place in the hearts and memories of those who have called the Beverly neighborhood home.

Why You May Want to Make Year-End Charitable Donations

As many people are prepaying their property taxes, you may also want to look at making charitable contributions before the end of the year rather than in 2018.

https://illinoisestateplanning.blogspot.com/2017/12/why-you-may-want-to-make-year-end.html

    Why You May Want to Make Year-End Charitable Donations
    The new tax law has been forecasted to result in $21 billion less in charitable giving in the coming year. As an estimated, 95% of Americans will now take the standard deduction rather than itemize, few will see a tax advantage for charitable giving in the coming years.

Calling on Chicago to provide 2200K PC AMBER LED Streetlight Test Block

Chicago is in the process, like many cities around the world, of replacing our streetlights with blue-rich white LED's (BRWL's). At 3000K these lights are at the absolute highest end of what the AMA has deemed safe. Blue spectrum light at night (270,000 streetlights in Chicago) will affect the health and circadian rhythms of people, plants and animals by creating 24 hours of daylight.

Chicago is in the process, like many cities around the world, of replacing our streetlights with blue-rich white LED's (BRWL's). At 3000K these lights are at the absolute highest end of what the AMA has deemed safe. Blue spectrum light at night (270,000 streetlights in Chicago) will affect the health and circadian rhythms of people, plants and animals by creating 24 hours of daylight. IMHO, these lights are not only unsafe they are ugly and painful to look at, just like the new LED headlights...too bright and too glaring. They will make our city look like the frozen food aisle at Aldi, or at best, a Night Game. Chicago owes it to its tax payers, who will shell out $700 per light, to at least set up one test street with 2200K PC Amber LED's. If you would like to see such a test street, please let your Aldermen know. This is a four year roll out and changes can be made before it’s too late. If you would like to view or join our FB Group, please feel welcome. Thank you.

    Vicki, does there happen to be a website as well? I'm not a FBer. Thanks and happy holidays!
    PS: I'm visiting out of town for the holidays and this same issue and ire over the nasty bright blue lights came up (completely unsolicited by me). People far and wide dislike these things for aesthetic reasons, if nothing else!
