Voodoo on the beach?

A coworker thinks creepy deer head scarecrow I saw today on the beach might be voodoo. Anyone know what this means?

  • Just FYI, this has nothing to do with Vodou. Vodou is practiced mostly by people from Haiti, and many practitioners of Vodou are also Catholics.

    Roosters and goats and pigs can be sacrificed in Vodou, but they would not be displayed afterwards. They are a gift to the saints (also known as the loa).

    My guess is that this is some kind of art project by college students.

  • Sarahdonis 20 year neighbor

    With all due respect to Lisa in RP, VOODOO originated in West Africa. It was 'bastardized' by the powerholding majority, when it accompanied slaves brought from Africa to 'the new world.' It had been an oral tradition, but when put in writing, it became VOODOU. Thus, Haitian VOODOU was mixed...

    With all due respect to Lisa in RP, VOODOO originated in West Africa. It was 'bastardized' by the powerholding majority, when it accompanied slaves brought from Africa to 'the new world.' It had been an oral tradition, but when put in writing, it became VOODOU. Thus, Haitian VOODOU was mixed with Christianity, which had been unknown in West Africa, at the time.
    West African practitioners of VOODOO present animal sacrifice to spirit, in thanks(giving;). Typically, it is then buried. Unfortunately for those of us who inhabit the areas where sacrifice is safest to perform in our community, some eccentrics leave the carcasses, to 'show off' their kill.

    I read a lot of right-wing stuff and even I was taken aback by her screed. Taking away free lunches based on what parents do was a nice touch.

  • Some of the lectures on this thread strongly reflect influence by Augustine's "City of Man" which is corrupt, ruled by selfishness and self-seeking pride. I would imagine that's how it might be taught by the Jesuits at Fordham and unfortunately results in disdain for selfish and corrupt people who need social support in order to survive. That sort of kicks "feed the hungry, clothe the poor and heal the sick" right out of the Republican window doesn't it?

Help!! State Budget Cuts

This worries me from a general standpoint as an IL resident, but also from a personal one because my young adult son is disabled and he's housed in a special facility in the suburbs to provide a long-term supportive living environment for the disabled.

I just learned the word is out from Springfield that massive budget cuts proposed by IL's new guv will severely impact social services (always conservatives' favorite target). This worries me from a general standpoint as an IL resident, but also from a personal one because my young adult son is disabled and he's housed in a special facility in the suburbs to provide a long-term supportive living environment for the disabled. If these budget cuts are approved, we've learned the program that funds our son's living and work facilities will lose over $800K from its operating budget.

We are pretty freaked. These programs and others like them around the State are absolutely essential to the population they serve, and yet they have suffered continual, deep budget cuts throughout the years. They are struggling to meet the many expenses of providing their services as it is. If they lose this money, we have no idea how they can stay open. If they close, where will its fragile and vulnerable population go? There must be a better way to balance IL's budget than robbing disadvantaged people.

The only chance is to put enough pressure on the State reps to veto Mr. Rauner's proposal. Anyone who could write letters of protest to their elected officials, we would be so grateful. Also, can anyone tell me to whom shall we address our letters? Who are the ones that serve our community? Thanks!

    Paco, LOL. That's really funny. To whom was I supposed to complain (or "report") about the abusive CW? THEY DON'T ANSWER THE PHONE! Was I supposed to ask Kathy to talk to Heather Steans to ask her to talk to her person in Springfield to report that the CW called me finally but he was verbally abusive and the client was offended and demands an apology?? Was I supposed to write a letter to CW's supervisor, who I don't even know the name? THEY DON'T ACKNOWLEDGE LETTERS! Or faxes. Was I supposed to go down to the office in Skokie, take a number, wait all day to talk to an intake worker to complain about the verbally abusive CW? I was angry abt the way the CW spoke to me, but my real concern was to get the extension to get the app. in. I got that (going through my state senator). That was the issue. The issue was resolved. There's no point in trying to be a Prima Donna. I got what I needed. I let go of the rest. I contented myself with the knowledge that the CW is in his own private hell with that job and the certainty that my household income is probably twice his. I keep my priorities straight and I keep moving forward. Life is too short.

Appeal Process

Has anyone filed any forms to appeal the value of their condo? I have the 2015 real estate assessed valuation appeal form but I just came across another form on the cook county website listing a very long list of documents to submit, along with pics of your building. I'm trying to figure out what's actually needed to appeal.

  • Helen NoH North of Howard for 50 + years

    Carl, I don't understand your question. As I indicated, our building's assessment went up 6% (rounded off) from 2014. We don't get separate tax bills in a co-op although we are entitled to the various exemptions, which makes apportioning the taxes each fall a headache for our treasurer.

  • Ah, I misread you, Helen. For some reason I thought you were saying that your assessment went up 6% AFTER your building appealed.

Troublesome Rogers Park intersection finally getting much needed improvements

A community meeting has been called 7 p.m. Thursday, March 5, to review and provide input to a City engineering plan addressing the hazardous intersection at Touhy, Ridge and Rogers. The meeting will take place at the Pottawattomie Park Fieldhouse, 7340 N. Rogers.

  • AMP Rogers Park since 1988

    As per the notice from the Alderman, the meeting is actually happening on Thursday March 19, 7pm at Pottawattomie Park.

    Reading the article, it sounds like the traffic engineers are fixing the wrong problems. We paid with PB money to do a study of the intersection, but it sure seems they didn't look at it during busy times, if at all.

    I hope they are ready for some "community input" because I plan on being there.

    I predict that this improvement will make things worse. I hope and expect that at the meeting there is substantiation that the intersection is a bad one. On this link I see there have been three pedestrian and one bicycle accident at Ridge and Touhy, and NONE on Touhy and Rogers 2005-2012. In 12 years crossing that twice most days I've never had a problem and never seen an accident. It always seemed like a great intersection for cars in all directions, given the location of the streets and hills.

    http://chicagocrashes.org/#zoom=20&lat=42.0123174&lon=-87.683154

    There were no fatal car accidents there on the fatal accident map, in the two years shown here (of 236 in the city):

    http://www.city-data.com/accidents/acc-Chicago-Illinois.html

    I google searched Touhy Rogers Traffic Accident and found stories on
    1. a garbage truck hit two cars in 2012
    2. a motorcyclist was struck by a bad driver turning left westbound on Touhy, 2006
    nothing more but blogs, discussions, etc.

    I google searched Touhy Ridge traffic accident and found stories on
    1. amature video of an accident before the intersection going E on Touhy 2012
    2. the same accident mentioned in #1 above, pics show it was west of Ridge too.

    ... granted I only spent about 20 minutes looking, but this is hardly the "death trap" I heard about in the participatory budgeting meeting. The proposal would put a bend in eastbound Touhy at Ridge, and narrow it, so people don't have to turn their heads so far. That's nice, but this will create a serious problem.

    The smooth flow right on Touhy going down the hill will be disrupted. If those cars coming down the hill have to break, you are going to get accidents there. They will be accelerating getting through the intersection, then shoot down the hill and then WHAA? THERE'S MY TURN! Slam.

  • If we go through with this plan we'll know by accident rates which should be shared at that meeting coming up, with more precision than I used above. Can we agree that if there haven't been that many accidents, don't fix it?

    Final point. I'm all for participatory budgeting, but...

    Final point. I'm all for participatory budgeting, but not for things like this. Someone proposed fixing the "death trap," but with no data. Who wouldn't agree to that, so it passed. So now there is money and now we have to do something. There was no study until after the commitment of funds.

    There is an issue with pedestrians who might want to cross that long intersection. They'd have to be extra careful, but none have been hit in 7 years of collected data! Sure some drivers are confused by having to look more than 90 degrees, or they forget the rule about not entering an intersection before you can get out of it. But this calls for signage and nice bright crosswalk paint, and a little ticketing. Not $300+K to make matters worse.

bulls win without rose, butler

The bulls playoff hopes seemed dim with news of rose' s newest injury. But the surgery went well and we expect him back in a few weeks. Then just as fans breathed a sigh of relief, butler suffers an injury and is sidelined. But the team worked hard last night and pulled out a victory anyway. I'm impressed with our depth and the players stepping up and making the most of an opportunity. Still, this has been a weird year for the bulls and the league overall: young guns, injuries aplenty and odd slumps.

How will the bulls fare down the stretch, as the season winds down and the playoffs begin?

I previously had our family's prescriptions at Walgreen's, where it was frequently crowded and the pharmacists and techs often seem super busy. Ever since switching over, I've found that the pharmacists at Jewel really do have time to answer questions, look up your meds, etc. One time when I had asked to add flavoring to my son's medicine (which Walgreens had previously done), the pharmacist actually came and found me in the shopping aisles to ask a question and tell me about how the flavoring could effect the medicine if it wasn't stored properly, and that this medicine was already very sweet and might not really need flavoring. Wow, that was really great to know they were being so vigilant. Just wanted to pass it on and give some compliments to the Jewel pharmacists. :)

  • Thanks, Helen. I'll give it a whirl!

    Couldn't agree more about Osco pharmacy. I switched from Walgreens to Osco on Clark in Andersonville years ago. Have had all positive experiences - can't say the same for Walgreens whose worse mistake was miscounting pills and blaming me. Since Jewel/Osco changed ownership, however, other nonprescription items are sparse. CVS is great for this regarding selection and prices.

I apologize for the inconvenience.

Below is a reprint of the earlier notice I posted describing the proposal and its history:

Funding for design improvements was approved by the voters in the 2011 Participatory Budgeting election, but the City delayed implementation of the plan until Peoples Gas finished with its gas main installation work in the area. The gas main work is now completed.

The plan proposed by the City of Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT) is illustrated in the photo below.

The plan extends the curb at the southwest corner of the intersection to reduce the angle between Touhy and Rogers and shortening the crosswalk at that location from 100 feet to 40 feet.

Learn how to appeal your property tax assessment and possibly lower your tax bill at a special workshop sponsored by County Commissioner Larry Suffredin, County Assessor Joe Berrios and my office. The workshop will be held on Wednesday, March 4th, 6:30 p.m., at the Loyola Park Fieldhouse, 1230 W. Greenleaf (at the Lake).

The assessed value of your property is one of the factors that determine the amount of property taxes you pay. This assessed value is determined by the Cook County Assessor. If you believe your property assessment is improper, you have a right to appeal that assessment.

Because of the improving economy, the average assessed valuation for property in Rogers Park has increased 12.75%. If your 2015 assessment increased more than 12.75% over your 2014 assessment, you should seriously consider appealing your assessment.

If you own property in Rogers Park Township (Devon to the Evanston border, Kedzie to the Lake), you have until Friday, March 20th, to submit an appeal to the Cook County Assessor.

At the workshop, you will learn how the assessment process works, how to file an appeal with the County Assessor's office and how an appeal is granted. Please bring your property tax bill in order to more efficiently file an appeal. Staff from the Assessor's office will be available to answer questions and help complete appeal forms.

If you are unable to attend the workshop, the Cook County Assessor's website provides an overview of the property tax appeal process, including step-by-step instructions on how to appeal your assessment. For information on the appeals process and to file an appeal online, visit:

http://www.cookcountyassessor.com/frequentlyaskedquestions.aspx

Make sure you file your appeal before the March 20th deadline.

For assistance in filing your appeal, contact my staff assistant Michael Land at mike.land@cityofchicago.org or 773-338-5796.

Liberty Power

A woman just knocked on the door of my apartment (private, double-locked apartment building) claiming to be from "Liberty Power." I didn't engage with her. Anybody seen this? Looked way bogus.

  • Helen NoH North of Howard for 50 + years

    Joseph, there are numerous threads on EveryBlock with complaints about workers claiming to represent power and gas companies getting into buildings in Rogers Park. Make them leave your building.

  • Inactive user

    Politely decline them, maybe snap a discreet photo, close the door and call 911 with a description and tell them people are trespassing in your building. Which they are.
    Enough of these boneheads get hauled off maybe they'll cease this sort of garbage.

  • I double checked online. It says energetic supplier, makes energy from windmills. And agree with their aggressive sale method, they should to let people know about that other way.
    The woman explained that my electric bill will remain exactly the same, with the fix rates for energy(not including delivery and taxes)
    And that I can change my mind in 10 days

Good-bye, MorWay

All but one business in the strip mall at Morse and Wayne has closed shop for good. Word on the street is Jennifer Pritzker bought it. The lone holdout is Vic's Pharmacy, who has allegedly gone to court - and was granted to stay until May 2015.

One can only speculate as to how big of a parking garage will be built in it's place?

One can also speculate as to how long it will be before Ms. Pritzker buy's out JB's Pizza?

south of Howard/west of Damen safe for new families?

My wife, 3 month old baby, and I are currently looking at apartments all over Rogers Park to move at the end of this month. Recently we looked at an apartment that is stunningly beautiful and perfect for our family. However, we noticed that right around the corner there is a blue light police camera box. (Flashing very annoyingly bright at night). We are new to this city and do not know this area very well.

My wife, 3 month old baby, and I are currently looking at apartments all over Rogers Park to move at the end of this month. Recently we looked at an apartment that is stunningly beautiful and perfect for our family. However, we noticed that right around the corner there is a blue light police camera box. (Flashing very annoyingly bright at night). We are new to this city and do not know this area very well.

Does anyone have any insight into what sort of walk safety/crime rates are like around Seeley & Fargo? My wife likes to go running and we like to be outdoors a lot. Peckish Pig is right there on Howard and we love that place!

This apartment is amazing but that police camera box really freaked us out!
We are seasoned city livers.. We don't get freaked out by everything.. Its just I never lived near one of those cameras. I usually only see those in only pretty darn bad neighborhoods (when I lived in Philly.)

Any insight into this specific area of Rogers Park would be amazing!

Thanks neighbors!

    POLICE CAMERAS -- Peg, the second police camera does NOT imply anything about the area. Remember those 3 sting operations I mentioned? That is why the camera is at Birchwood & Hoyne. We supported police in those sting operations. It remained because of issues at Howard & Hoyne, which have substantially declined after we, residents, "dragged" the convenience store owner before hearings at Chicago Business Affairs office (and they threatened revocation of his license). Residents requesting the removal of camera is as onerous of a process as is residents requesting a camera. We have other priorities at the moment (park improvement, neighborhood block events, etc.) that take priority.

  • Really great of you and your neighbors to get in the game like that, Bernard. No question that blue light cameras are reason for potential new residents to be concerned. But if I understand correctly that you are taking steps to have a camera removed because the area has calmed, that's completely awesome.

Any kind hearts out there that can foster a dog for 2-3 months?

Lucy's person has to have hip replacement surgery and if someone doesn't step up today she'll wind up a a shelter, foreign and not knowing what the heck is happening. I am particularly sensitive to this because I broke my ankle last week and can't imagine what would happen to our two big boys if we didn't have a little bit of money to help with care and a support system of family and friends.

My heart breaks for this girl. She will need to be the only pet in the house. Other than that we know only that she needs a home!

If you are able to help or can recommend an option for Lucy we would be so grateful.

Reminder: Weds March 5 meeting re: Touhy/Rogers intersection redesign

The meeting is at 7pm at Pottawattomie Park. This is an article describing the redesign:
http://www.dnainfo.com/chicago/20150226/rogers-park/public-meeting-set-for-hazardous-touhy-ridge-intersection-alderman-says

Not certain I have any ideas in lieu of the planned design; it's a tough intersection, no matter what direction you're heading in a vehicle. That the eastbound Touhy traffic approaches from the crest of a hill makes visibility for the Touhy-to-Rogers left turn is an added challenge. I'll be interested in the discussion.

  • LET'S TRY THURSDAY MARCH 5: sorry for the egregious error!

  • Joe Moore Alderman, 49th Ward

    Due to an unavoidable schedule conflict of a key Department of Transportation Official, the meeting has been RESCHEDULED to Thursday, March 19th at 7:00 p.m. The location of the meeting remains the same.

    I apologize for the inconvenience.
