Shooting on Lavergne - Neighborhood Watch

  • Midwestern Christian Academy reviewed by a parent

    It is disheartening to see MCA falling apart. What was once a thriving school is now falling apart at the seams. Apparently the current 2017-2018 principal is an "Interim Principal" and yet the pastor and elders of Midwest Bible Church have allowed the Interim Principal to come in, make changes to the mission, vision, and other important areas that were established by the men who originally started the school. What right does an Interim Principal have to make such changes without a vote from tuition paying families or church members? Not to mention that the majority of school families dislike the changes and are leaving the school as a result. It seems as though the leadership of MBC is turning a blind eye to the current failing state of MCA. Perhaps they are in denial of the great mistake and poor decisions they have made with the prior leadership of the school. I pray that the pastors, elders, and interim principal wake up, open their eyes and realize the school and church are in grave danger. It's time to repent and apologize for the poor decision making.

Koch Foods?

Hi everyone,
I'm interested in the area, but I noticed there's a large chicken processing plant nearby. It seems like this could be quite a nuisance and I had some questions for the neighborhood. Is the facility noisy at odd hours? Do they actually slaughter chickens there, or is it just processing? I'm worried about seeing or hearing truckloads of live birds. I'm out and about very early in the morning.

  • Can anyone speak to the smell during the summer? We are considering purchasing in the Terraces and wondering if the smell is still an issue. Since it’s winter and cold outside we haven’t been able to notice any smells, but am worried that changes in the summer! Thank you!

  • I never had an issue with smell there, lived nearby and drove by a lot. As the alderman said, they don’t have live chickens there. You can sometimes smell the commerical bakery on Kolmar which is nice!

WAY overacting and obviously trying to scare me into thinking I'd done something wrong. I stopped my car and got out. He was a middle aged man, and was talking (or pretending to) on his phone in a slavic language. I asked him what he wanted to do, and he kept trying to pretend I hit him. After about 5 minutes, he said "you can go" and then finally said "give me $50 and I'll forget about it." I didn't give him anything and drove away. A**HOLE!!!!!!

Now, more than ever, we need a new high school at the Read Dunning site. Bridge, Canty, Dever and Smyser are anchoring this part of the NW Side and are a large part of Dunning making this list. Give these parents a reason to stay in Dunning, give them a new modern high school, it's long overdue. The land at Irving and Oak Park is plentiful and has been sitting idle for decades. This should be an easy decision.

    @Paul. They seem to have a better handle on technology than any other real estate company. It's their Ace card really. I rely on their property search site for some RE investment purposes because it contains almost as much useful info as the MLS.

  • Thomas R Resident of Schorsch Village

    I was surprised by the Wrigleyville and Andersonville median prices, they seemed low. Anyone who lives on the North Side knows those areas are more expensive. Those areas are saturated with condos. It depends on how they get their samplings for the median home prices. My experience with Redfin is that their home estimator is usually higher than Zillow or Realtor.com. Keep in mind that the median prices include homes that flippers buy which are of course lower than other sold, turn-key properties.

My car was parked right out in front of my building on the same block. I am not sure if it happened overnight Saturday to Sunday (Jan 6th o Jan 7th) or Sunday to Monday (Jan 7th to Jan 8th) as I did not drive my car on Sunday. Monday morning however when I left for work the car sounded like truck, and was extremely loud when accelerating. I took it to Iggy's Muffler shop on Montrose and Harlem and was told that someone had cut through the front, and was half way through the back with they either gave up, or got spooked and left. Iggy's did great work and only charged me $50 to weld everything back together.

Not sure there is any way to prevent this from happening in the future, other than parking in well lit areas and everyone keeping a watchful eye. Unfortunately I do not have garage access which would be the best option.

  • Midwestern Christian Academy reviewed by a parent

    Many people have spoken as to why there is new leadership this year. Regardless of what happened, people should not go around speaking bad of the school or the ones that are still there. They do not know the whole truth, only God knows. It's very sad to my soul that Christians are following man and not God by pulling their children out of school or wishing bad ill to the school. There are not many Christians schools left, so I would hope that the few that are still around, we would support and pray for them to succeed instead of fail. I personally follow God and will stay there until God tells me other wise. I pray for the ones that left and wish them the best. I will continue to pray for the ones that are still at the school and for the school to continue to grow!

    Giving credit or blame to a president for the state of the economy after one year is not right.

    If Trump's administration is able to sustain key economic factors (DJIA is not one of them) than we can begin to give him credit. But, until next year's State of the Union, we will have to see. The DJIA is an economic factor mainly for the upper crust including CEO's of the companies measured via the DJIA. I understand that retirement plans are effected by the DJIA, but that, like the economy is cyclical and factored into your lifetime average including the lean years when you shift your money largely to interest bearing investments.A select few are lucky enough or knowledgeable enough to play the market perfectly. (aka insiders and CEO's)

    Job creation, median income numbers, unemployment rates and interest rates are what effect the commoners like you and me not the DJIA. Giving Obama credit for that yesterday or to Trump today is a red herring.

    Now I will say that, in comparing economic numbers during the Reagan years and the Obama years, the recovery was considerably more sluggish under Obama. Both men inherited a catastrophic economy. While the economy has its own engine, the president's policies can assist in the trend (up or down). The economy has and always will run in cycles.

Cat lady from.....

Hello neighbors! We have a crazy cat lady on our street. She has at least 10 cats that roam freely. They are a problem. They spray, they get in my garage, they poop in everyone's lawn. I can't open my front door without one trying to run in. I know there are leash laws for dogs but what about cats. I am not the only neighbor upset by all the cats. I've tried talking to the cat lady but she does not care. Will the city come out if I call with a complaint?

    Alley Cat Allies is a reputable organization that has been around for quite some time. Perhaps they are referring to the TNR cats as having a lifespan of 7 years. Surely they know that a strictly indoor pet cat receiving proper nutrition, veterinary care, etc., can and often does live almost 3 times that long. One of my cats was 19 years and 9 months old with medical issues that were well maintained over a long period of time. A friend had a kitty that was 26 years old.

I've always been reluctant to bring her inside because I believe she's someone's cat. (Well fed, well groomed, when it's cold or wet she doesn't show up etc.)

She stopped coming around right after the time that the trapper was catching cats so I figured her owners were keeping her indoors (good.) She's now returned, but looking a bit skinny--she was always very plump. It's odd for cats to lose weight that quickly unless there is a health problem--I tried to feed her, but she's not really interested.

I'm thinking about bringing her inside and possibly to the vet. But before I do that, I wanted to see if anyone knows if she's got an owner in the neighborhood. I tried to put a break-away collar on her that asked for her owner to call me, but she's not having any of that. I have not yet had her checked for a microchip and she is not ear-tipped.

Or even a window company that they could recommend as they maybe able to do the work as well since the windows need replaced.

    My family used to love MCA very much and we were a part of the school for many years. It was like a second church family to us. With this new direction in the 2017-2018 school year, we lost confidence in entrusting our children to the staff at MCA. Programs for spiritual growth have been cut, electives for the junior high have been cut, important classes like computers have been cut, leadership is unapproachable, teachers are not certified and some do not show the characteristics of Jesus, parents suggestions are ignored or dismissed, and enrolment is in a steadily decreasing in large numbers. Many changes that were just bad. It is very sad that such a great school with such a rich history and was growing is obviously in decline. If things do not change soon, there will be no more MCA and that will be the fault of MBC Church, the school board, and the school leadership and staff. God does not have to bless that which fails at doing his will.
