Seriously Rogers Park?

Violence has always been an issue in Rogers Park for as long as I can remember. It has improved in the last 10 years, but Morse Avenue needs help, it really does. It needs viable businesses that people can frequent and meanwhile not have to fear for your life. Morse Avenue needs to be revitalized in ways that parts of Andersonville and Edgewater have been in recent years.

Violence has always been an issue in Rogers Park for as long as I can remember. It has improved in the last 10 years, but Morse Avenue needs help, it really does. It needs viable businesses that people can frequent and meanwhile not have to fear for your life. Morse Avenue needs to be revitalized in ways that parts of Andersonville and Edgewater have been in recent years. With gang bangers loitering, intimidating people, driving by, shooting each other and in this case passersby, businesses are not going to bother setting up shop on Morse Avenue. Further, people need to report crime and not just walk by the BS and say nothing. People also need to stop buying political BS from those who have allowed slumlords to rule in Rogers Park for so long. That too contributes to the issues in the community. The lack of jobs and real opportunities for youth is yet another contributor. Absent parents and poor school systems. The list goes on and on. There are many reasons for the gang violence in Rogers Park and the reasons don't include block groups trying to make their neighborhoods safe.

As mentioned at a community rally tonight (designed to bring people together), WE the people need to rise up and develop shared strategies to combat the violence and offer solutions and assistance to our youth. Standing up at a rally and blaming others is never going to solve the problem people. You are smart enough to realize that, I'm sure of it! What I witnessed tonight is sad! I hope this community learns from the mistakes of the past and it can come together to solve the gang violence and the problems it creates in Rogers Park. Community block groups have worked to clean up certain areas of this community. That's a fact! Why blame them people? I understand people are pissed about Trump and the economic and political climate, but to blame block groups is ridiculous. There has to be a better way to channel your frustration and anger. Just sayin...

    The somber event that was intended to help our community heal was disrupted by protesters who scattered themselves around the crowd and began shouting over the words of scheduled speakers including a local minister who attempted to lead the people in prayer of love. CBS Chicago News reported that Jim Ginderske, who ran against (the Alderman) years ago, was among those who yelled, saying the police and politicians only want to solve the immediate crisis and not the problems that lead to it, such as closing a nearby mental health center and disinvestment in local public schools. Because of the guerrilla group's disruptive tactics the rest of the meeting was called off early sending many people home disappointed that they could not mourn without being disrespected. http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2017/10/17/rogers-park-community-rally-cut-short-cynthia-trevillion/

    Bertha, I'm a child and adolescent psychotherapist with over 30 years of experience. I have worked with gang-bangers, street kids and kids in the DCFS system.

    Kids can respond very well if given the help they need. The problem is that the amount of help they need is massive and complex. Intervention is needed with the kid, individually, his parents and family, school, community, and the justice system. Many of these kids are 40 hrs a week jobs, in themselves.

    You get it right that there are limits on how much we can help. Our world is a broken place. I actually even see some kids who benefit from a short time of being
    locked up. For them, more of their needs are met in jail. However, it is absolutely untrue that kids don't change. They all want to grow. And you'd be surprised how many of them do!

Stray Bullets Kill Beloved Middle School Math Teacher Walking With Husband

Just 30 minutes before Trevillion's death, a 15-year-old boy was also shot in the 7100 block of North Ridge Avenue, police said. Police originally said the boy was 13 and shot in the 2100 block of West Touhy Avenue.

Just 30 minutes before Trevillion's death, a 15-year-old boy was also shot in the 7100 block of North Ridge Avenue, police said. Police originally said the boy was 13 and shot in the 2100 block of West Touhy Avenue.

Moore acknowledged that "since late this summer, our neighborhood has experienced an uptick in gun violence," and said additional gang crime teams have now been called to patrol the Morse and Ridge/Touhy areas in the wake of the recent shootings.

A wake for Trevillion is scheduled for 1-7 p.m. Monday at Christian Community Church at 2135 W. Wilson in Lincoln Square, according to CBS2 Chicago.

Trevillion, of the 6800 block of North Greenview Avenue, and her husband found themselves caught in the crosshairs of a drive-by shooting around 6:30 p.m. Friday night while walking in front of Rogers Park Social bar in the 6900 block of North Glenwood Avenue, according to police and witnesses.

Ald. Joe Moore (49th) told residents in an email Saturday morning that just prior to the shooting, police told him there were two minors talking to someone in a stopped car at the corner of Glenwood and Morse when a dark SUV drove by and opened fire on the boys.

Her coworkers, along with the owners of Rogers Park Social, are holding a memorial in her honor at 8 p.m. Saturday at the 6920 N. Glenwood Ave. bar.

    What an absolute shame. This poor woman and her family. Out for a nice evening and killed by gangbanger scum. Rogers Park is a very dangerous neighborhood filled with gangbangers. Hopefully developers will buy up all of the multi unit buildings and level them, replacing them with single family homes these gangbangers families cannot afford.

  • The Gangers usually live with their moms and girlfriends because they won't pass the credit test to rent houses. Every slum landlord and CHA housing unit should be interviewed and inspected in the general area. I doubt the gangers came all the way from the south side to shoot somebody on the north side.

Did anyone see anything?

Sunday morning (10/15) around 5am I thought I heard something that sounded like a car accident. Got up and looked out my windows but couldn't see anything and didn't feel like going outside at that hour. Later that morning I got a call from someone in my building who told me that my he saw my car had been hit... as had 3 other neighbors (two of them other people in my building).

The four cars were parked on Pratt facing westbound across from Newgard, around 1434 Pratt. I'm asking if maybe someone - anyone - saw anything, got a description, license plate, something? Coz, of course, there was no note...

Our hearts are heavy today as our community grieves the loss of an innocent victim to gun violence.

A woman in her early 60s was fatally shot Friday night at 6:30 p.m. as she was walking on Glenwood, just south of Morse.

According to police officials, two juveniles were on the street speaking to occupants of a vehicle stopped at the intersection of Morse and Glenwood when a second vehicle, which witnesses describe as a dark SUV, drove by. An occupant of the second vehicle fired shots at the juveniles. Tragically, one of the bullets struck the woman, who police say was an unintended victim.

After the shooting, the juveniles and both vehicles fled the scene.

The woman was taken to Presence Saint Francis Hospital, where she was pronounced dead. Police have asked me to withhold the identity of the victim until they are certain all members of her family have been notified.

Police officers canvassed the area searching for both the perpetrators and witnesses who might have information about the crime. Police detectives are examining video footage, which may help lead to the identification of the perpetrators and their intended targets.

In what police tell me was an unrelated shooting 30 minutes earlier, a 15-year-old boy was shot in an altercation in an alley behind in the 7400 block of Ridge Avenue. The victim is hospitalized in critical condition. Police have little information about this second crime and will be questioning the victim when he is able to talk.

If you have seen anything that might aid in the investigation of these crimes, please contact Area North Detectives at 312-744-8200.

Additional gang crime teams have been dispatched to both the Morse and Ridge and Touhy areas in the wake of these incidents.

I know nothing about the electrical system at the library, and I am not advocating a conversion of the building into any specific use. I'm not opposed to conversion. I just don't know what would be involved, what programs would be housed at the converted center, what else the library or the space be used for?

I just don't know.

That's why I signed the petition: to encourage a public discussion, to persuade our tone-deaf alderman to hold a public meeting about what might be done at the site. Maybe my friend’s neighbor who opposes conversion is correct about the electrical system. Is the neighbor an electrical engineer or a contractor or a builder? Does the neighbor have any expertise to make such a determination? I’d like to hear what the neighbor says.

Or is the neighbor just reading from a script where the fate of the library building already has been decided by the alderman?

Why can't residents of the 50th Ward be asked for OUR input?

Crime Scene Hoyne Between Birchwood and Howard

Walked home from CTA through a phalanx of CPD and the citizens who normally run the open air drug market in the parking lot behind the Public Storage at Hoyne and Howard. Heard complaints about bullet holes in cars, but no sign of EMT. Wondering if anybody in the n'hood heard anything about this. Hoping this particular enterprising gang finds a new distribution location. Nothing subtle about their presence all summer, so this event was just a matter of time. What is it about Howard and Hoyne so irresistible to the criminal element? Calls to CPD and Ward office and nothing changes.

need to hire/borrow van to move bookcase

(Does "Acts of kindness" include needing one?)
I need to get a bookcase from south Evanston to north of Howard, about two miles.
I can help carry (needs two), and pay a little, but it needs to move soon and all my leads fell through.

  • Try Garret Riviere, I don't have his phone number but his FB is here: https://www.facebook.com/garrettriviere19

    This is what he does, he also works for Dolly. He helped me move some stuff last month and everything went really well. Highly recommend.

  • Hello, while I don't have a van or moving truck, I am more than happy to help you move the item. I'm home at 4:30 pm and weekends. I love at Thorndale Beach South. There is no charge to help you move it. George

Don’t forget, the 49th Ward’s Participatory Budgeting Election Day is tomorrow (Saturday, October 14th). Polls will be open from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Your polling place is at the Chicago Math and Science Academy, 7212 N. Clark Street (just south of the firehouse and across from Touhy Park).

This year you will be asked to vote on two separate ballot questions. First, you will be asked to vote on the percentage of the ward infrastructure ballot that you believe should be devoted exclusively to street and alley resurfacing and sidewalk repairs.

Second you will be asked to vote on how the remainder of the ward’s infrastructure ballot should be allocated. You will be given four votes to choose among seven project proposals that were developed, researched and proposed by your neighbors, not politicians and bureaucrats. And it will be you and your neighbors, not City Hall, who decide which projects will move forward.

Information on the project proposals, as well as the blocks proposed for street and alley resurfacing and new sidewalks, will be on display throughout the day at the Chicago Math and Science Academy.

You can vote electronically or on a paper ballot.
