Gale academy landscapers

Why have the youth landscapers been replaced by professionals?
I thought the Hockwater kids did a fine job.
And the price was right.

Looking for a referral for a cleaning person to clean a one bedroom condo near Clark and Pratt

I am looking for a Referral for someone who cleans condos. If you know someone who is good please message me back. The condo is a one bedroom.

  • Impossible to do. That’s why you get a free estimate.
    Pets or no?
    Stairs or no?
    Difficult places to access?
    800 sq ft? 1500? 2000?
    3 floors?

    They need to eyeball it. The internet can’t tell you

  • headsup not available

    $ 24.00/hour minimum 7 hours is what my company pays. Remember cleaning companies pay their employees benefits like social security and medical-so you are doing the right thing to employ a cleaner who works for a legitimate business.

Details on the Chill New Way to Bike to Evanston

...to the lakefront. A new sidewalk will also be built on the east side of Glenwood south of Pratt...

    Details on the Chill New Way to Bike to Evanston
    Among the 20 new miles of bikeways the Chicago Department of Transportation has planned for 2018, one of the most useful new routes will be the Rogers Park Greenway. It will extend the popular Glenwood Greenway in Uptown and Edgewater by a couple of miles miles and create a low-stress way to visit Evanston, our neighbor to the north.

  • Jeffrey Littleton If you can't be a poet, be the poem.

    Contraflow lanes and sinusoidal speed bumps...dontcha just love bike transit talk?

  • d3 NoHo

    Are they removing parking lanes where they are putting contraflow lanes north of Howard? Drivers north of Howard seem to have a hard time staying in their side if the street as it is

Have you switched from Comcast to RCN?

I am thinking of switching from Comcast to RCN in order to save money. Has anyone switched from one company to the other? Have you seen good savings over comparable packages? I went to RCN's website like I was going to purchase new service and put everything in my cart. I tried to make it really close to what I have now as far as Premier Digital, Phone, Internet, Tivo, extra digital box, router, modem, unpublished number, etc. Have I been paying too much this long? The monthly estimated bill (which includes estimated fees and taxes) was 30% lower than Comcast!! Trying to decide if it would really be worth it. Thanks for the feedback!!!

  • Sadly, you have to rotate now every couple years. Comcast has a better DVR feature. But them changing their name to Xfinity didn’t change their horrific customer service. Be glad you have options. If you are in an Xfinity only building, you’re in purgatory

  • Amy

    I switched from Comcast to RCN three months ago. Tomorrow my new Comcast boxes should arrive and I will cancel RCN immediately. I switched because I was paying Comcast $125 and RCN could keep me at $115. Not too much of a savings but I was sick of Comcast playing...

    I switched from Comcast to RCN three months ago. Tomorrow my new Comcast boxes should arrive and I will cancel RCN immediately. I switched because I was paying Comcast $125 and RCN could keep me at $115. Not too much of a savings but I was sick of Comcast playing games with my bill. Since I signed up with RCN, I have been billed $170 monthly and they really have zero interest in making it right. The best I was offered was less services still @ $120. I would have been happy with that IF they had been willing to go back and adjust my monthly bill for the past 3 months. However, they could care less. I had one rep offer me a $100 credit (thank you). However, when I called to see where that was no one had record of the promise and were not willing to do anything about it. I should have known better when the installer arrived and announced there was a $35 install fee, It's fair but was not disclosed when I arranged set up.
    Comcast is a challenge but RCN has made me run straight back to them. I have been nothing but lied to and overcharged by RCN and they have ZERO customer service or concern to make it right. I will deal with Comcast and watch their billing any day over dealing with this nightmare.

Full citizenship for all.

The right to drink and smoke shouldn't be denied based on age.

  • Sarahdonis Nearly 30 years in Edgewater; love RP & A'ville

    65 was made the ‘official’ age for retirement at a time when the average life expectancy was 68 - 70. I’m not sure what the current life expectancy is, but it seems to me that I recall it being much closer to 80. In some ways, it is unfortunate that the ‘official’ age is so low (said as I near 60😕). Social Security was never intended to fund the last 20+ years of active healthy lives.

  • headsup not available

    retired at 66 and at 77 i have used 10 years and plan on using at least 10 more

    I paid a lot into - maximum amount every year for 40 years - so i am only getting a return on my investment

Energy Scam Folks Making Their Rounds

I just had a man knock HARD on my front window while ringing the doorbell, and THEN jiggling the door handle excessively hard. I came from a back room and saw him walking down the front steps and I thought it may have been a delivery driver, so I opened the door (oops) and he came flying back up the steps with the whole spiel of "Just need to see your energy bill, etc." I politely told him no thanks,...

I came from a back room and saw him walking down the front steps and I thought it may have been a delivery driver, so I opened the door (oops) and he came flying back up the steps with the whole spiel of "Just need to see your energy bill, etc." I politely told him no thanks, and he just kept talking over me. Told him "no thank you, I'm not interested", and closed the door. He then went huffing across my lawn hollering about how black men in Chicago don't get any respect...
So, that was pleasant.
He was wearing a blue polo, tan pants, lanyard around his neck and had dreads.

Just an FYI to the people in the Pratt/Wayne area.

  • Roger S. Park Teller of truth in a fake news world.

    It would be a good idea to call the cops when this type of aggressive “salesmanship” occurs.

  • We had that.
    2 girls I swear we're coming home from highschool.
    They produced a tattered card .
    I laughed and said do you really think I'm letting you one step anywhere here?
    Scam over she swore at me, walked around the fence to meet her friend who was waiting.
    I also pointed out she had nothing to "write down information on".
    I swear it's a training exercise for future scamming.

Is RogersEdge a real place?

The President of the Rogers Park Chamber of Commerce has decided it would be a good idea to proclaim that "Rogers Edge [sic] was a bad marketing idea, and is not a real location in the City of Chicago!"

That seems to have sparked a debate on a lesser known Rogers Park facebook page about the matter. It's quite a good one.

So what say you Everyblock, Is RogersEdge a real location or not?

https://www.facebook.com/groups/RogersParkNeighborhoodNews/permalink/1695156770560375/

  • MandaLeigh Here I Is.

    I came across that FB thread today. It really was entertaining.

  • Helen NoH North of Howard for 55 + years

    I'm not sure whether Loyola came up with the name or the Rogers Park Business Alliance did, but JMG is exactly right that the chamber guy's nose is out of joint. I perused the thread late last night. It's a hoot.
