Two young African American males rang my doorbell, and every other doorbell in my building this afternoon. They said they were from Commonwealth Edison and "wanted to talk" about my electricity delivery. I went to the common door, asked to see their ComEd identification. They said there were from an electricity supplier. I didn't let them in and neither should you.

I acquired 4 containers of craft supplies because I thought they contained a bunch of yarn. Unfortunately there was little yarn but tons of other stuff - mostly fabric (lots of different colors, textures, sizes) some felt, foam craft sheets and misc decorative trimmings. I feel obligated to re-home the rest - there's probably a case paper box full of the fabric and the rest is much smaller amounts. I tried Misrecordia but they kind of hem and hawed and...
I acquired 4 containers of craft supplies because I thought they contained a bunch of yarn. Unfortunately there was little yarn but tons of other stuff - mostly fabric (lots of different colors, textures, sizes) some felt, foam craft sheets and misc decorative trimmings. I feel obligated to re-home the rest - there's probably a case paper box full of the fabric and the rest is much smaller amounts. I tried Misrecordia but they kind of hem and hawed and only took certain stuff blah blah blah. I know some school, women's center or where ever would enjoy playing around with this stuff. I would like it to go all at once if possible. I will gladly deliver to whomever. Any suggestions appreciated!

I am interested in reaching out to a few developers in the area to see if any are interested in the purchase of my home. I am NOT in the market for a realtor as I already have one but would like to know before I sign a contract if there are developers out there who I could negotiate a deal with before i commit to the sales fees. Thanks in advance for any help.

Wednesday 7/26/17 marked the first time that the public could speak at a monthly City Council meeting. If you look at the photo in the online version of this Chicago Tribune Editorial, you will notice that when an African American woman is giving her 3 minutes of public comment , Ald. Cappleman is not even looking at her, he is not even trying to give the appearance of paying attention. When the editorial is printed out, the photo is of Rick Garcia, a fellow gay man and co-plaintiff in the case that created the 30 min public comment period, whom Ald. Cappleman is also not even looking at when he is speaking.

I have been trying in vain to get the American flag
flown at the Osterman beach house. I have called
the alderman's office several times in addition to
three email. I also reported lights
out along the bike path.(5700 block) .
I finally got a response from the Alderman's office-(7-18-2017)
"Hi there - we've sent your request along to the park district for their attention. I don't have an estimated time for correction, but I'm hopeful that it will be sometime this week for the flag, maybe next for the lights."
This response was a week ago, still no action.
I'm hoping this post will get some action. I originally contacted
the alderman's office the first of July.

If you live in Jefferson Park, your 2017 assessment is now available.
1) To check your 2017 assessment, go to the Assessor's website (below link)
2) Enter you PIN
You can also use this site to appeal your 2017 assessment. I would suggest an appeal if:
a. You recently purchased your home
b. Have a recent appraisal
c. Have had vacancy due to construction or, if you rent out your property, tenant vacancy
d. You can find comparable sale or uniformity comparables
Hope this helps. If you have any questions, just contact me and I'll try to help.
