Attaching this black ribbon to the top of a U.S. flag is an acceptable alternative for flags that cannot be lowered to half-staff (see pic). Questions about flag etiquette? Please reach out Jac.Charlier@gmail.com.

On this solemn day, we mourn the loss of Barbara Bush, an outstanding and memorable woman of character. As a wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, military spouse, and former First Lady, Mrs. Bush was an advocate of the American family. Mrs. Bush lived a life that reminds us always to cherish our relationships with friends, family, and all acquaintances. In the spirit of the memory of Mrs. Bush, may we always remember to be kind to one another and to put the care of others first.

As a mark of respect for the memory of Barbara Bush, I hereby order, by the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, that the flag of the United States shall be flown at half-staff at the White House and upon all public buildings and grounds, at all military posts and naval stations, and on all naval vessels of the Federal Government in the District of Columbia and throughout the United States and its Territories and possessions until sunset, on the day of interment. I also direct that the flag shall be flown at half-staff for the same period at all United States embassies, legations, consular offices, and other facilities abroad, including all military facilities and naval vessels and stations.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this seventeenth day of April, in the year of our Lord two thousand eighteen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-second.

Dead Body Found Down the Block

A week ago today I was walking to the local grocery store near Belmont and Knox. As I approached the corner I noticed a news man taking video behind the senior center. My initial thought was that perhaps he was doing a story about the senior home. But when I returned from the store I noticed many more news reporters had joined the scene. At this point I questioned the first reporter I encountered. He mentioned that a dead man was found in the alley shot to death. Which that alone turned out be false to some extent. As I continued down the block I encountered another reporter at the other end of the alley off of Barry Ave. At this point I was a little more surprised because we was getting a lot closer to my residence. I said to him, "I hear it was fatal, any specifics as to what happened?" And he said that they found a man dead in the alley but no one knows what was the cause of death. He said he even walked the alley to see if he noticed a sign of the crime scene but could not pinpoint the spot where the body was found. There was no blood on the ground or anything, not even yellow tape. I mentioned that the prior reporter said it was a gun wound. And he said that no one really knows, that his report indicated that the man was beat to death and found a couple hours earlier lying in the alley.

The Tribune report:

https://www.google.com/amp/www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/ct-met-man-found-dead-in-alley-040818-story,amp.html

That was it! I never heard an update. And this startles me to the core because my grandchildren and I live right down the street from this crime scene. For all I know we have a murderer on the lose in the neighborhood!

Does anyone know who to reach out to to find out more? I'm curious to know if they determined who the individual was? Cause of death? Was it a local resident? Was it gang related? Was it someone that may perhaps been murdered elsewhere and just dumped in the alley? So many questions are unanswered.

  • Yes, just as Bellhome says... go to your local police station or call them and tell them of your concern and questions. Each station has its own number.
    You never mentioned there were any cops around just reporters. (?!) were the police there when you approached each reporter you confronted?

  • Clef in Jeff Park, no now that you mention it I didn't see any officers around. Then again, the police were alerted to the body sometime around 7:30am and when I walked by it was already around 10:15am. I don't know if that was enough time for them to conduct their investigation though.

What is most surprising is that there isn't as many incidents as one would think given just how bad it is. It's just a matter of time until a small child gets nailed at one of these useless intersections. I'm not a round a bout person, but to see 9 out of 10 cars blow right thru these signs is shocking and something really needs to be done. Especially, given the proximity of Gray School = 2 blocks.

Edgebrook Resident Mike Royko's April 5, 1968 Article on the Assassination of Dr. King (Post 2 of 2)

He is actually the worst, the nodder is, because sometimes he believes differently but he says nothing. He doesn’t want to cause trouble. For Pete’s sake, don’t cause trouble!

So when his brother-in-law or his card-playing buddy from across the alley spews out the racial filth, he nods.

Give some credit to the most subtle of the subtle. That distinction belongs to the FBI, now looking for King’s killer.

That agency took part in a mudslinging campaign against him that to this day demands an investigation.

The bullet that hit King came from all directions. Every two-bit politician or incompetent editorial writer found in him, not themselves, the cause of our racial problems.

It was almost ludicrous. The man came on the American scene preaching nonviolence from the first day he sat at the wrong end of a bus. He preached it in the North and was hit with rocks. He talked it the day he was murdered.

Hypocrites all over this country would kneel every Sunday morning and mouth messages to Jesus Christ. Then they would come out and tell each other, after reading the papers, that somebody should string up King, who was living Christianity like few Americans ever have.

Maybe it was the simplicity of his goal that confused people or the way he dramatized it.

He wanted only that black Americans have their constitutional rights, that they get an equal shot at this country’s benefits, the same thing we give to the last guy who jumped off the boat.

So we killed him. Just as we killed Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy. No other country kills so many of its best people.

Last Sunday night the President said he was quitting after this term. He said this country is so filled with hate it might help if he got out. Four days later we killed a Nobel Peace Prize winner.

  • I remember this day and the many others like it. Thank you for posting.

Greetings My Neighbors!

At 6:05 PM CST today on April 4, 1968 the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was murdered (with a Remington rifle) by a white man who was a known criminal. You know the story of course, and that's important as it's our history. On this 50th Anniversary of the violent assassination of Dr. King, I share with you the words of Edgebrook resident Mike Royko. He would publish this tomorrow, April 5, 1968.

Mike Royko: Millions in his Firing Squad
April 5, 1968

FBI agents are looking for the man who pulled the trigger and surely they will find him.

But it doesn’t matter if they do or they don’t. They can’t catch everybody, and Martin Luther King was executed by a firing squad that numbered in the millions.

They took part, from all over the country, pouring words of hate into the ear of the assassin.

The man with the gun did what he was told. Millions of bigots, subtle and obvious, put it in his hand and assured him he was doing the right thing.

It would be easy to point at the Southern redneck and say he did it. But what of the Northern disk-jockey-turned-commentator, with his slippery words of hate every morning?

What about the Northern mayor who steps all over every poverty program advancement, thinking only of political expediency, until riots fester, whites react with more hate and the gap between the races grows bigger?

Toss in the congressman with the stupid arguments against busing. And the pathetic women who turn out with eggs in their hands to throw at children.

Let us not forget the law-and-order type politicians who are in favor of arresting all Negro prostitutes in the vice districts. When you ask them to vote for laws that would eliminate some of the causes of prostitution, they babble like the bums they are.

Throw in a Steve Telow or two: the Eastern and Southern European immigrant or his kid who seems to be convinced that in 40 or 50 years he built this country. There was nothing here until he arrived, you see, so that gives him the right to pitch rocks when Martin Luther King walks down the street in his neighborhood.

  • Thank you Jac. A very timely post speaking truth to all of us.

Greetings My Neighbors,

As a veteran myself, you know I post about things of import to our vets of all eras, women, men, and families of veterans. This includes the flag ceremonies that we do in our communities as well as ways we can serve our veterans and their families. Tomorrow is one of those that stands out however as its significance in so many ways for our vets, for each other, for our nation rests with us to this day with much pain and hurt. I usually write something myself for my posts but this time, the words of the American Legion National Commander Denise Rohan (and the Legion's first female Commander!) say it all. Please share with our Vietnam veterans and their families and please, thank them for their service to our nation!

___________
Thursday, March 29, is Vietnam War Veterans Day.

While we honor our war dead on Memorial Day and our living veterans on Veterans Day, this is a time when we give a special tribute to those who served during the Vietnam War. For many, it’s the recognition they deserved when they returned to America.

They defended our flag with honor. They supported democracy. They fought in brutal conditions.

Yet when many Vietnam War veterans returned to America, they were unwelcomed. While we cannot change the actions of the past, we can show our support and gratitude today – something that should have happened 50 years ago.

In fact, the American Legion is already doing this. http://www.vietnamwar50th.com/

Across the nation, ceremonies will honor Vietnam War veterans this Thursday. Of course, the Vietnam Wall will play a special role in honoring and remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice. Throughout the United States, nearly every state is planning to host commemoration events.

We should not allow this special day of recognition to fade when the calendar turns over. Join me in thanking Vietnam veterans for their service not just this Thursday, but every day.

Welcome Home.

    50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War Commemoration | Vietnam War Commemoration
    The Vietnam War Commemoration is conducted according to the 2008 National Defense Authorization Act to help honor and pay tribute to Vietnam Veterans and their families.

Garage space needed for scooter

Hi there!

I am moving to the area at the end of the month and am in search of a secure parking situation for my scooter. After having my first scooter stolen in 2016, I am no longer willing to park it on the street overnight. With scooter season rapidly approaching, I'm wondering if anyone has (or knows someone who has) some garage space available that I could rent. I live near Milwaukee & Belle Plaine - ideally it would be within reasonable walking distance of my place. Thanks!

  • check with new neighbors, either go to their door or if they do not answer put an envelope with a request on their door. best to get something real close to where you are going to be

  • If you do have to park on the street, I recommend getting a disc brake lock. They are relatively cheap and very effective.

Is it illegal to honk?

Need to vent. Today I was picking up my brother from his friends, I honked 2 times and these idiots (man and woman) who were walking their dog started yelling at me like crazy and said that why I had a phone. I got so mad I flicked them off and they tried to get close to my car so I took off. They were yelling at me crazy.

  • Did anyone consider that maybe the couple walking their dog thought Jennifer was honking at them and that’s why they got mad?
