Anyone had any interactions with Loyola's police?

I'm a reporter for the Loyola student newspaper investigating transparency problems with Loyola's private police force. If you or anyone you know has had any interactions or issues with campus safety that made you feel uncomfortable or you think could be a problem, please contact me.

  • The Loyola Security Police have a formal agreement with the Chicago Police Department's 24th District that grants them police authority within a specified zone surrounding the actual campus boundaries. You can confirm the details either through the University or the 24th Police District. It is unclear what was meant by a weird, tricky look far off campus.

  • d3 NOH

    I'll his law grants them the same powers as police so even without any formal agreement they have jurisdiction

Missing Dog Alert!

MISSING DOG ALERT.
A shaggy black lab with a red collar ran away in the northeast Rogers Park area. His name is Klaus. He was last seen running north on the beach at Touhy. I was watching him at the time. My name is Max. If you find him, please call me at 708-846-6780. He belongs to Jess Scott and Paxton Grey who live on Morse.

  • Aw I hope you find him.

  • Hope you are reunited quickly...I had a Lab that would burrow under a fence and make a fast break for the beach. Picked her up at the police station 2 X's. Hope you checked with them and your lab has collar identity.

    What is "food insecure"? Is that related to judging the chili?

  • Be careful of the Leather Archives chili entry Helen. It might be sadistically hot. Ask what the S&M rating of their chili is. That's the Scoville Unit and Masochism rating. Be cautious if it's above 100,000 because that's Habañero, Bhut Jolokia and Trinidad Scorpion territory.

    I'm already enjoying the demands certain individuals are making on other social media pages.

  • Jon 10yr Rogers Park / 8yr Edgewater

    This seems like quite a bit to shoehorn into a little lot; the fronts of the townhomes would only be a few feet from the lot line! The building appears oddly proportioned when compared to the two proud structures on either side, which is made more apparent in the version 1 with the metal finishes, Overall it seems that when something is torn down we would hope the replacement will better than what has been lost. This seems to be missing the mark a bit.

Venting

Speaking of parking issues in Rogers Park... an old gentleman across the street on North Shore has a designated handicap spot. When he returns from wherever, he parks in his spot. Then, as soon as an adjacent spot opens up he removes his placard from the window and moves his car there, taking up an extra space.

I fume every time I see this. What’s his deal? Does he just like an unobstructed view of the street? And, (yes, I know you can’t always tell), he doesn’t seem to have a disability.

It just apppears selfish and un-neighborly.

In the several times I've taken it over the last week, I paid $3.95 to go to the South Loop from Howard/Greenview--and no one else ever shared my ride. (This is a special price to promote their expansion to Rogers Park, and they have extended the special pricing for one more week, but their normal Rogers Park-downtown fare is $10-12.)

You can get $10 worth of free rides by using a referral code--mine is stephanie4k3, if you need one.

I don't work for Via--I just want them to continue to serve our neighborhood!

Chicago Waldorf Moving to Andersonville

This is a bittersweet post as our kids attend CWS and we really like the Rogers Park neighborhood. However, the chance to own instead of rent, plus the fact that the Trumbull site gives the teachers and students nearly twice the square footage is a huge plus. Here's hoping that another school takes over the old Loyola buildings. It's good to have activity in this area.

    Dear Neighbor, As of February 20, 2018, the Lyman Trumbull Elementary School building is now the future home to the Chicago Waldorf School. Svigos Development and Waldorf have been in negotiations over the last few months for the purchase of the property where Waldorf will relocate its main campus.

Join us TONIGHT (Monday, February 19th), 7:00 p.m. at the Loyola Park Fieldhouse, 1230 W. Greenleaf (2nd floor).

With everything going on in Washington, there is no shortage of topics to cover. Jan plans to talk about the devastating Republican budget and her alternative Budget for All plan, the so-called "tax reform" plan recently passed by the Republican Congress, which Jan labels a "tax scam," and, of course, immigration reform and protection of the "Dreamers," whose cause Jan has championed for years.

Jan will also respond to questions from those assembled, so please feel free to bring your questions on topics of concern to you.

You will also find out at the meeting how you can help ensure that the Democratic Party nominates progressive Democrats who can effectively take on Bruce Rauner and the Republicans in this fall's election.

Property taxes = corruption

Confirmed, mine trippled since 95.
Unsustainable.

  • Phill "Obama wants to know everything"

    Chicago is structured like that, Democratic politicians love heavy taxation for home owners (The socialist concept has always been to tax the successful) then use that money to support people that always vote for the Democratic party. If they need more money, then they take it from drivers when they go to work, using money making machines like speed cameras.

Fireworks at Leone Park Beach Again.

At about 4 am there was a series if fireworks at Leone Park Beach. Thankfully it was one round instead of several hours worth. These were fireworks, not gun shots. Carol

    Maybe it was just a few Yahoos with firecrackers?

  • Maybe it was Martians..maybe it was the fish ...maybe it was some kids just blowing off fireworks..hmmm...all the possibilities..mwahahahaha

Moving to Chase/Damen area

Hi-- I'm thinking of moving to a place on West Chase, between Ridge and Damen, closer to Ridge. I don't know the neighborhood at all, and would love some info on what it's like-- especially in terms of crime and general safety, but any other info would be great, too
Thanks!

  • I just drove down Chase, and about half the parking spaces were shoveled and open, and no Dibs!

  • Thanks, everybody-- this is really helpful!

lost keys

1500 block of Estes, lost a set of keys to a Subaru

  • jos home owner since the '70s

    Out with sno blower this AM, helping neighbors clean up walks and street. Lost a set of keys to our Subaru s.t. between 10-1 in the middle of the 1500 block on Estes, N side of St. If found, please let me know.
    Thanks,
    JD

  • I'm sorry that happened to you! I feel your frustration. Same thing happened to my husband's a few years back. Helping out across the street. He, like you I'm sure, needed the keys or no work.
    So he recruited a bunch of friends, pizza for all and a bonus for the keys finder, and bought a metal detector.
    Took about 15 minutes. Somehow they wound up hanging on a low tree branch!
    I hope yours pop up as well. Good luck!

  • I don't know if it was on this site or on Next Door but I recall someone in the last few days saying they found Subaru keys. Good luck.

Chicago gearing up for winter storm

The National Weather Service predicts 10 to 16 inches of snow will fall along Chicago’s north lakefront between now and Sunday morning.

The National Weather Service predicts 10 to 16 inches of snow will fall along Chicago’s north lakefront between now and Sunday morning.

The City of Chicago Department of Streets and Sanitation already has activated some of its snow plow fleet so they are in position when snow starts to fall. Additional resources will be deployed as needed throughout the storm.

Please note that plows clear the arterial streets continuously during any winter storm. Only after the snowfall stops do they move onto the side streets.

As we are expecting constant snowfall throughout tonight and tomorrow, the side streets will experience considerable snow accumulation for most of Friday. Do not expect to see any snow plows on the side streets until after the snow ceases to fall and the arterial streets are clear.

I would like to thank everyone who dutifully has cleared their sidewalk this winter. It is the responsibility of every resident or business/property owner to ensure that the sidewalk adjacent to their property is clear of snow. Please report unshoveled sidewalks to my office at ward49@cityofchicago.org or 773-338-5796.

    Happy to see an Alderman not only doing their job but taking a proactive approach towards keeping the residents up to date during this snowstorm. Someone should tell that to the 50th ward. Seems they took a snow day and could care less that most of the residents of her ward cant even move their cars. The snow has been stopped for hours now and as of 5:30pm no one has come by to plow our street, which is highly travelled. I wish I could say this was a one time thing, but this was also the case Tuesday after snow fell Monday. Many of the streets running north to south between Kedsie and California bordered by Devon and Peterson were not plowed for the whole day. Seems today is no different. Makes me wonder why I'm paying 29 separate taxes to live in this city. Nonetheless, bravo to the Alderman of the 49th district, at least you showed up to work today.

Etiquette Question

So I’m in that group of 20 something’s where half the people I know are getting married and the other half are still at home with parents pursuing career. Last year two close friends got married, to different people, not each other. Both events were out of state and I’m part of the group that is saving money at home with mom and dad.

So I’m in that group of 20 something’s where half the people I know are getting married and the other half are still at home with parents pursuing career. Last year two close friends got married, to different people, not each other. Both events were out of state and I’m part of the group that is saving money at home with mom and dad. Being that my financial situation is strained I couldn’t attend either event. This May another friend is getting married out of state. I’m planning on doing my absolute best to make it. One of the recently married friends will be attending the same event. Here is the predicament: what is the appropriate very belated wedding gift? Also, I know it would be poor taste to give the belated gift while attending the upcoming wedding. Would it be best to send something before or after the event in May? Needless to say I’m on a budget, so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

  • Send it before so you dont have any uneasiness by seeing them ..and i would first look at the registry and if things are on there that you can't afford send them a $50 gift card..and if you buy the gift card at a store where they are registered you wont have to pay the 5.00 charge for purchasing it. Good luck girl..and honestly ..any gift is a good gift..👰🤵

  • RaleighsMa Not fauxraged but may contain typos.

    Write a nice note that you wish them all the best on their recent nuptials and send it as soon as you can get to it. If you're going to get them a belated gift anyway, there's no point in strategizing when to send it and waiting until May could...

    Write a nice note that you wish them all the best on their recent nuptials and send it as soon as you can get to it. If you're going to get them a belated gift anyway, there's no point in strategizing when to send it and waiting until May could have the potential of signaling to your recently married friends that you're only sending them a gift at or after the May wedding because you're feeling guilty, awkward or something else rather than a gift in celebration and congratulations.

    As for a suggestion now that you sound like you're a few months after-the-fact, send them a nicer picture frame for their wedding pictures that they should be getting back around this time. Home Goods, Nordstroms, Marshalls and a number of other places have lovely "wedding-y" frames at a good price. If they're really your friends, they'll appreciate the thought and a nice card and note over the perceived price tag.

    Best of luck.

    Joe - you refer to this event as "your" 28th annual FREE VALENTINE’S DAY FILM EXTRAVAGANZA and mention that you've "teamed up" with the New 400 to present the movies. What exactly is your, or the Ward's, contribution to this effort?

    The term "team up" means exactly that. I am hosting these movies in co-sponsorship with Tony Fox, the owner of the 400 Theater. Tony secures the movies and provides the free popcorn and drinks and I provide the publicity. In addition to my email blasts and social media posts, my office fliers the entire neighborhood and sends notices to all the schools in the ward.

    In addition to doing this because he's a good guy, Tony tells me he always benefits from a bump in attendance at his theater during the weekend of the Valentine's Day Movie event, which usually is a slow time of year for his business. He attributes it to the publicity he receives for the event.

    Dave, you are welcome to join us this Saturday. This event is open to all, even 40th Ward residents!

Aloha Poke coming to Rogers Park

Looks like it'll be in the old American Mattress place at The Morgan. Nice upgrade for the space, and will make for another good healthy food option before a quick Target run.
