Craft donations

I have a lot of cut and polished petrified wood rocks from a project that I would like to donate.
Let me know if you are interested.

  • Oops Rock Shop****

  • Catherine NO!

    Do you do lapidary? I'm not affiliated with any schools, but I might be interested in them for my own personal collection.

    There's a school by Broadway and Winthrop that has a lot of nature-related collections in its windows, like plants and shells. I don't know the name of the school though.

Do not flush personal care products, which can clog pipes and cause blockages in the water system.
“Our local sewers need that space during a heavy downpour,” Steele said. “These simple tips will make space available in your local sewers so water can travel to our system instead of your basement.”

MWRD also offers the following tips for minimizing flooding during heavy rainfall:

Ensure that storm drains are clear.
Keep areas around streams free of floatable debris.
Check your sump pump to make sure it is working properly.
Make sure your gutters are clear.
Chicago-area residents who observe flooding are directed to report it to their municipality. In Chicago, residents should call 311.

Residents can also sign up to receive alerts on Overflow Action Days, a program started by Friends of the Chicago River that provides water conservation reminders before and after rain events.

Read All About It! FAiR Newsletter February 2018 is Out - Jet Noise and Health

Greetings My Neighbors,

Sharing this with you from the Fair Allocation in Runways (FAiR) Coalition. The lead story is about the impact of airplane noise on and in our lives.

JET NOISE AND HEALTH

Chicago and suburban residents under the O’Hare flight paths currently experience jet noise in the range of 65 - 110 decibels on a 24/7 basis. Those living immediately adjacent to the boundary of O’Hare, like the residents of Park Ridge, Bensenville, and the 41st Ward, experience noise levels close to 120 decibels (the sound at which aircraft take off).

    Helen NoH: That's true. There is a small part in the 7th. I copied the text right off of the Facebook page. I'll have it edited there. Thanks for catching that. But the sizable majority nonetheless! Hope people come out.

noise violation or inconsiderate actions

My next door neighbor hired a new company to clear her snow. Last night/this morning they showed up at 4:15am with a gas snow blower and used it to clear her entire driveway, (from sidewalk to garage in the back of her property) right under our bedroom windows, waking my entire family (and probably other neighbors).

I called her at 4:30am and left a voice message saying this was unacceptable.

Isn't there a rule about using fuel powered equipment before 8am in Chicago?

  • Chitowngal - She probably wouldn't have answered the doorbell because she couldn't hear it...over the sound of the snowblower. :^)

    Jason, thanks for the link. I'll have it printed and ready to use if it happens again.

    Now if we could get the owners who never shovel their snow to make arrangements that would be nice. They know they are slacking in responsibilities,but don't care. Some other neighbors try to help by shoveling a path for the mail carrier and others to get through, but it's barely enough. I bet this happen on every block. I try to be a good neighbor and not report to 311, but sometimes it's a one sided ungrateful relationship.

Apparently there soon will be a faster bus option.

Want to know more about this national holiday? Keep reading.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent
question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’” Against what seemed like
impossible odds, Dr. King and scores of his fellow citizens of all races came
together and, ultimately, helped bend the moral arc of the universe toward
justice. In recognition of Dr. King’s incredible legacy of service to all, Congress
designated the Martin Luther King Jr. Federal Holiday as a national day of
service in 1994, and charged the Corporation for National and Community
Service with leading this effort. Taking place each year on the third Monday in January, the MLK Day of Service is the only federal holiday observed as a national day of service – a “day on, not a day off.” Today's commemoration of the MLK Day of Service on Monday, January 15 is an opportunity to remember that history. It is also a time to consider how much work still remains to fulfill Dr. King’s dream.

It's a DB 300, principally designed as a drawing-board projector with a 3x enlargement or reduction, or 18x on a vertical surface. It weighs 40 pounds, uses two 150-watt photo enlarger lamps and pulls 115 volts and 3 amps. We have the original owner's manual. Free to a user who can make good use of this great teaching aid.
