How useless is the Chicago PD?

Today is a prime example for a drastic change needed. I was driving down Clark headed south towards the hardware store, when I noticed a man tail gating and screaming, and gesturing. The traffic was slow due to construction vehicles parked along side of the road. I took notice of a parked patrol car at the hardware store. The officer was on a cell phone, and then an after extended time asked what was the problem. I supplied the car a black Infiniti SUV large, and the the driver appearance. He looked an said "what do you want me to do?" Better off calling the post office perhaps?

  • d3 NoHo

    They aren't sitting g around waiting for people to flag them down. If you want a police response dial 911 with that info. Chances are they will still be totally useless in this scenario but if you don't follow the proper process you can't complain and they can't be held accountable.

  • Michael Archangel First - 13 Russian nationals; Next - US enablers

    @Kelly Hudson - I do understand your frustration but gesturing and screaming because of traffic is not a traffic crime. Tailgating is rather subjective, especially in stop and go traffic. Aggressive drivers are certainly a problem but not sure your expectations were realistic.

    Best wishes!

Our community was devastated by the recent drowning at our lakefront of 13-year-old Darihanne Torres.

As a father, I can’t begin to imagine the unfathomable pain and suffering her parents and siblings are enduring. I attended Darhanne’s wake on Friday and conveyed to her parents the sorrow of the entire Rogers Park community over their daughter’s tragic death.

Though we mourn the death of young Darihanne, we should not forget the brave first responders and community residents who put their own lives at risk in an attempt to rescue Darihanne and another girl, who fortunately survived. Please join me in thanking our police officers, firefighters and the countless Good Samaritans who did everything they could to save the two children.

This horrible tragedy reminds us of the critical importance of beach safety and has prompted impassioned conversations and suggestions about what we can do to prevent such tragic events in the future. These include calls for extended lifeguard hours, more signage, enhanced water safety education for people of all ages and better training for public safety officers responding to water safety emergencies.

Log Cabin Republican Calls Police on Wrong Woman

In what appears to be another case of calling the police because someone is Black, Morry Matson, Log Cabin Republican candidate for Edgewater's Mayor, has a lot of explaining to do. His last claim to fame was promoting a multi-million dollar carnival boardwalk in front of lots of people's homes and cutting off their unobstructed views of the lake.

I suggest you stop tuning into Fox News and the right wing blagoshere. Go see a movie and have a drink. Relax.

Better Government Association / WBEZ investigation about chronically failing CHA elevators

"Grab bar removal has not been confined to Mulvey. Last year, the Better Government Association unveiled how residents endured weeks of a Chicago winter with nothing but space heaters and construction dust that caused coughing fits during the $45 million modernization of Caroline Hedger Apartments Building in Rogers Park, Chicago, Illinois. That project was finished more than a year late and 47 percent over budget.

As part of that project, the Chicago Housing Authority paid to remove grab bars from the more than 400 units in the high rise. More than a year later, amid residents’ complaints, the CHA paid again to reinstall them. One senior profiled in the story, Cesar Vera, fell in the shower during the period in which the bars were missing, living for months with constant neck pain that also traveled down his back.

The Jane Addams Senior Caucus, which also helped Caroline Hedger residents petition for grab bars, has not received evidence that the CHA has installed grab bars in all units occupied by a disabled senior, according to the complaint."

The Rogers Park Library was one of the first branch libraries to make available computers for public use. The Friends of the Rogers Park Library, with money raised from book sales, bought two 386 desktops in 1992, and were loaded with WordPerfect 5.1 were made available for word processing to library users. We were not in the position to restore the library hours cut in 1992. However, we tried to find a way to keep our neighborhood library relevant. They were a popular attraction and were heavily used.
Alderman Moore’s office contributed computers that were made into learning stations. Students can learn to type and be drilled on basic arithmetic. Though these were not the state of the art PCs, their useful life was extended and well used by students of all ages.
As the lead organization of a city-wide coalition, the Friends of the Rogers Park Library successfully campaigned to restore the library hours in 1993 and Mary Dempsey was appointed Library Commissioner in 1994. She made it a priority to connect the Chicago Public Library to the Internet. When we opened on June 8, 1999, in a new facility, it had six top of the line desktops connected to the Internet. The Chicago Public Library for many more users was their only on-ramp to the Information Superhighway.
Unfortunately, branch library hours were again cut back in 2010 during the last economic download. Though our branch library still has shorter hours, we now have 24 PCs connected to the Internet, 12 on the Adult side, and 12 on the children’s side. We even have Cyber Navigators, funded by the Chicago Public Library Foundation to assist those who are using computers for the first time, and for those who need reminders on their lessons. There is even a scanner that will copy your old photos and documents into a jpg file, and for a small fee print copies.
Join the Friends of the Rogers Park Library and help keep our library relevant.

    Nextdoor requires "somewhat real names" but they are -not- all "real names". Everyblock was not at all perfect, but I will still miss it. The news aggregation was occasionally laughable, but it did start some useful discussions that might not have been started by a neighborhood poster, especially since the "neighborhoods" are defined much too tightly. I have had a Nextdoor ID since the previous time Everyblock was about to die, but I rarely used it or even checked it, since I have personally found only a few useful posts, mixed in with many things Everyblock would consider advertising.

Apartment Rental

I'm looking for a studio or 1 bedroom apartment where I am about 40 minutes by transit to 175 N State street. I am a single woman so safety is a premium. $700-800 is my range. Any suggestions would be helpful. It doesn't have to be Roger's Park. Thank you .

  • steven beckerman Lifelong resident of the Rogers Park neighborhood.

    Hate to say it, but in that price range, you're probably looking at studios, or sharing a larger apartment with roommates. That travel range would put you up near Loyola, or one of the red line stops nearby or to the south. Studios abound up and down Winthrop and Kenmore in Edgewater.

Do you need a valid government photo ID regardless of your immigration status?

Do you need a valid government photo ID regardless of your immigration status?

I am partnering with Chicago City Clerk Anna Valencia and Centro Romero to offer Rogers Park residents a free Chicago CityKey ID Card next Tuesday, July 17th, 12:00 noon to 4:00 p.m., at St. Jerome’s Church Parish Center, 1709 W. Lunt (at Paulina).

The CityKey Card is an optional, officially recognized government-issued identification card that you can use to access a range of public and private services. It is designed to reduce barriers to those who have difficulty accessing traditional government-issued identification, such as undocumented immigrants, youth, the homeless, transgender residents, domestic violence survivors, and those recently released from incarceration.

The Program’s goals have since grown to include discounts and other benefits for all of Chicago’s 2.7 million residents. This means that not only does the Chicago CityKey give Chicagoans the dignity and peace of mind that comes with having a government-issued ID, but it also serves as your key to Chicago– serving as your library card, Ventra card and benefits card for cultural institutions, sports teams and local businesses.

For more information on the CityKey program, including the documents you will need to obtain the card, visit:

Thank you Officer Steve Ommundsen

Our neighborhood had the tragedy of Darihanne Torres drowning at Loyola Park Beach last week, Friday, July 6, 2018. Her death is a loss for our community. Darihanne's companion was saved by a Chicago Police Officer who attempted to rescue both girls. As mentioned in the link below:

Our neighborhood had the tragedy of Darihanne Torres drowning at Loyola Park Beach last week, Friday, July 6, 2018. Her death is a loss for our community. Darihanne's companion was saved by a Chicago Police Officer who attempted to rescue both girls. As mentioned in the link below:

https://rogersedgereporter.com/2018/07/10/rogers-park-mourns-girl-who-never-stayed-sad/

"Chicago Police Officer Steve Ommundsen, who was among the first on the scene Friday. Ommundsen responded to a call of swimmers in trouble in the choppy waters off Loyola Beach. It was about 7:30 p.m. after lifeguards had gone home for the night. Ommundsen, himself a former Chicago lifeguard, immediately stripped to his underwear and dove in the water, swimming about 100 yards to a girl who was floating motionless in the water."

“She was barely conscious,” Ommundsen said. “She wasn’t really aware of what was happening.”

“Her body was already under the water,” he said. “I wish I would have been able to get them both.”

Officer Steve Ommundsen is a member of the patrol for our Beat 2431. He is the officer on the right-side in the picture I took on our beat walk with 24th District Commander Nieves, Kevin O'Neil from Alderman Moore's office, Carolina Juarez from the Rogers Park Business Alliance, and another outstanding officer in our beat Matt Mckenna on June 18.

I commend Officer Ommundsen for his lifesaving actions. His selflessness, putting his own life at risk, exemplifies the spirit of our 24th Police District whose officers who do their best to serve and protect us. The other picture shows the second watch bike officers who patrol the lakeshore of our neighborhood. Also, Alderman Moore is working with the Chicago Park District to make lifesaving gear readily available to first responders at our beaches.

Thank you Officer Steve Ommundsen,

    Friends, classmates, mourns girl who 'never stayed sad'
    By John Carpenter When friends passed Darihanne Torres in the halls at Jordan Elementary School, she always made them smile. This was just one of many memories offered Monday evening at a lakeside memorial for Torres, 13, who drowned in Lake Michigan Friday. Known to her friends and family simply as Ari, she was remembered...

  • So sad for these kids. Most likely the first such tragedy like this they have experienced. Was good to see the neighborhood come forward and support them and this girls family. They still need us. I understand the funeral is Saturday. I plan to pay my respects and show support. I know others will also.

  • headsup not available

    Officer Ommundsen is a hero - he did not think twice about what needed to be done. Now here is an example to present to our children as we teach them how to grow up to be good people. Thank you Officer - You are a wonderful person. Your family must be very proud of you.

Found dog

We found this little scared guy on our porch at Ashland and Pratt. Managed to get him to vet--no chip. Have posted on Lost Dogs, Facebook. He's friendly.
