Alderman Margaret Laurino, 39th Ward added 3 ...

Last Friday Alderman Laurino and Peterson Pulaski Business & Industrial Council Executive Director Janita Tucker joined artist and constituent BJ Krivanek to celebrate his art installations throughout the ward. These installations were commissioned as part of the 2017 Year of Public Art 50x50 Neighborhood Art Project bringing public art to neighborhoods throughout the City of Chicago. BJ's text-based project incorporated answers from community members who responded to a public survey asking questions such as "What community resources and/or personal support systems are most important to you?" and "What things cause you pressure or need to be changed before you can attain a feeling of stability in your daily life?" BJ's installations can be seen in front of the North Park Village at 5801 N Pulaski, in front of the Polish National Alliance at 6100 N Cicero, and adjacent to Sauganash Village at 4301 W Peterson. Thank you to BJ for bringing this wonderful collection to the ward and thank you to the Peterson Pulaski Business & Industrial Council and Edgebrook Sauganash Chamber of Commerce for assisting in outreach. About the Artist: 39th Ward resident BJ Krivanek embraces the multiple roles of designer, art educator, and public artist. He was principal of BJ Krivanek Art+Design, with a clientele ranging from the Union Rescue Mission (Los Angeles) to The Irvine Company, a major developer in California. As founding artistic director of Community Architexts, he implements public art programs which provide a voice for embattled and stigmatized urban communities. He has been awarded a research fellowship by the Graham Foundation (Chicago), an Illinois Arts Council Fellowship, five individual artist grants by the Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Department, three individual grants from the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and an individual grant by the National Endowment for the Arts/ Design Arts Program.

LaBagh Woods (Chicago) Call to Action

LaBagh Woods offers great recreational, aesthetic and ecological value to the people of Chicago, and serves as a habitat for migratory birds and diverse wildlife. The privately owned, wooded property at 4357 W Bryn Mawr is a seamless addition to the forest preserve and contributes to the quality of life and property values that the families of Sauganash and neighboring communities enjoy.

LaBagh Woods offers great recreational, aesthetic and ecological value to the people of Chicago, and serves as a habitat for migratory birds and diverse wildlife. The privately owned, wooded property at 4357 W Bryn Mawr is a seamless addition to the forest preserve and contributes to the quality of life and property values that the families of Sauganash and neighboring communities enjoy.

We were dismayed to learn that in spite of strong community opposition, the City Council voted to rezone this land from POS-1 (Regional or Community Park) to RS-1. This will allow developers to strip this land of its trees and wildlife in order to construct single family homes.

We believe that to divest the people of Chicago of even a single parcel of forested land should be as unthinkable as privatizing a stretch of the lakefront. The parcel in question, though privately owned, provides great value to the community and the region as undeveloped open space. We therefore ask that you sign this petition to express your concern and opposition to development at this location. We further ask that you reach out to your elected City and County officials to voice your opposition to the development, and urge them to work with the community and the owner of the parcel to reach an equitable compromise.

Our Nation grieves with those affected by the shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas. May God heal the injured and may God comfort the wounded, and may God be with the victims and with the victims’ families. As a mark of solemn respect for the victims of the terrible act of violence perpetrated on May 18, 2018, by the authority vested in me as President of the United States by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, I hereby order that the flag of the United States shall be flown at half-staff at the White House and upon all public buildings and grounds, at all military posts and naval stations, and on all naval vessels of the Federal Government in the District of Columbia and throughout the United States and its Territories and possessions until sunset, May 22, 2018. I also direct that the flag shall be flown at half-staff for the same length of time at all United States embassies, legations, consular offices, and other facilities abroad, including all military facilities and naval vessels and stations.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this eighteenth day of May, in the year of our Lord two thousand eighteen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-second.

That's a necessity when you're dealing with building owners, complaining residents, businesses, construction crews, 250 club members, etc. If one needs info, then it's good to be able to direct him/her to the source.

Beware of Caldwell Central auto 6301 N Central ave

We had our car towed here last Monday. It wasn’t until Friday we got the diagnosis of a timing belt & water pump for $2800. Since we had the timing belt changed 30,000 miles previously and the unprofessional way Pedro dealt with us we paid the $90 diagnostic fee and had it towed to Albany Auto.

They found it was the alternator at a fraction of the price and we are happily driving again.

The North Branch Trail Alliance (NBTA) of Greater Chicago is excited to announce that it was awarded the “Advocate of the Year Award for 2017” by the Active Transportation Alliance (ATA), Chicagoland’s leading voice for biking, walking, and transit. Steve Simmons, ATA Trail Advocacy Manager presented the award and said, “We’re grateful to be working closely with NBTA to advance trail networks along the river. Trails strengthen economic development and provide users with lasting cultural experiences. NBTA has made a valuable contribution to trail development by hosting bike rides, partnering on workshops, and joining the Chicago River Trail Coalition.”

Jac Charlier, NBTA President said “For NBTA to receive this recognition of the local economic development work we are doing that’s helping our neighborhood downtowns from Albany Park to Mayfair, Forest Glen to Edgebrook, to Niles, Morton Grove, Glenview and beyond, speaks to the value of moving from mostly seeing bike trails for ‘health and hobby’ to understanding them as real economic drivers for our small businesses.” Charlier said that NBTA is currently seeking businesses as well as Chambers of Commerce interested in becoming NBTA 2018 Business Partners.

The next NBTA ride will be on Saturday, May 19 at 11:30 AM, with the theme “Icons of our Northwest Area.” More about NBTA at www.northbranchtrailalliance.com on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
