Highland Park-based Tucker Development and Seritage Growth Properties are partnering to redevelop stores in the Six Corners shopping district at the edge of the Portage Park neighborhood and on North Harlem Avenue in the Galewood neighborhood, Tucker Development said Wednesday in a news release.

Sears and Forensics

Does anyone know what happened behind the Sears today? At about 11am there were forensics cops and my wife was told the store would not be open today.

  • I think they were investigating the slow and painful death of Sears Holdings Corporation.

  • We recently purchased a police scanner. Things are very busy for our police. Recently I read about long wait times due to the lack of beat police. Its absolutely awful knowing you can wait ,20 + minutes for a squad to arrive.
    There are incidents that never make it posted anywhere because of the amount of crime daily. As a person who is now privy to the calls, and the hold times of responses due to lack of sufficient police, you should call the alderman and mayor!

    Amid Affordable Housing Dispute, Conservatives Seek a Home in Chicago - ProPublica
    When news broke last week that a proposed affordable housing development on Chicago's Northwest Side had likely been put on hold, Ammie Kessem, a Republican candidate for state representative, vowed on Facebook that it wasn't the end of the story. Democrats, Kessem wrote, would pay for pushing the plan - including 45th Ward Ald.

    Ald. Napolitano is still the only elected alderman publically opposed to the proposed 5150 N. Northwest Highway mixed-income development in the 45th Ward, designed too house people with disabilities and veterans, Here is a Pro-Public Illinois investigation on the financing of those opposed to the development, including Ald. Napolitano: From Pro-Publica Illinois:https://www.propublica.org/article/illinois-policy-institute-northwest-chicago-affordable-housing
    Amid Affordable Housing Dispute, Conservatives Seek a Home in Chicago

    Groups tied to Illinois Policy Institute and talk show host Dan Proft back GOP candidates on city’s Northwest Side.(Excerpts):"Starting with the 2012 elections, some institute leaders began funding campaigns after a series of transactions involving other organizations and political action committees they formed, records show."

    "The Illinois Opportunity Project, in turn, poured more than $1.7 million into political campaigns and committees across the state, according to election board records. "..."Some of the money from the Illinois Opportunity Project went to a pair of Northwest Side candidates for the Chicago City Council in 2015. John Garrido, a Chicago police officer running for alderman of the city’s 45th Ward, received $2,000, while Anthony Napolitano, a former police officer and firefighter vying to be 41st Ward alderman, got $3,000."..."In 2016, the Illinois Opportunity Project also loaned $325,000 to Liberty Principles, a political action committee founded and run by Proft. Liberty Principles spent more than $10.5 million in races across the state in 2015 and 2016, including about $118,000 backing Garrido. Proft didn’t respond to a request for comment. The 2015 results were mixed. In the 41st Ward, Napolitano upset an ally of Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s. But for the second time in four years, Garrido lost to John Arena, a self-described progressive who received significant backing from unions and liberal donors."

I came home today, and my entire apartment smells like I had a fire. Everything smells of smoke, including my new furniture, from the bedroom to the front room. Even the clothes in my closet.

This had got to be a Chicago thing. Every other place I've lived, local ordinance banned grilling on apartment balconies, period. I can barely stand to sit in my apartment, that I pay rent for, with all the smoke.

F'en unbelievable!
