A man with a walker was just stabbed in the back with a screwdriver at the Loyola red line stop. The attacker got back on the red line and escaped. Police and emergency services all around Loyola.

BEWARE! Workers posing as Com Ed employees are making the rounds

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.

  • 36 Ward. Door to Door sales as this are illegal. Call Police and tell them you are in the 36 Ward and get these people out of the Ward.

    FYI....they will tell you the are not selling just comparing savings with their suppliers vs com ed. They lock you into a price per kW that they say will save you money over the long run because everything goes up. They have a quota and make a certain amount per deal that is approved.
    Do not show them your bill to compare.
    Often the info is taken and you have no idea that you were signed up with another supplier.
    Years ago I did this for gas. We were lucky then the next years were cold and snowy..
    Unfortunately..it was a 5 year lock with penalty for early cancelation.
    Let CUB know they are misrepresenting themselves as Com Ed. Ask to see an ID that tells you exactly who the supplier is and report them.
    They are not doing you any favors!!

Looking for a new home for some craft supplies

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!

  • Yes, try The Waste Shed in Humboldt Park. They are in the process of moving to a new location, so they aren't accepting new donations, but maybe in another week they can.

  • Thank so much every one! Have more pressing projects to do next week but will check out all the helpful suggestions soon. Sometimes I think I get carried away trying to "save" stuff from landfills but in the end - its a good thing we all care and share.

Developers in Portage Park/Dunning

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.

  • Im a developer as well as agent and have clients that could be interested. For me - I don't work in Dunning or Portage Park for my investments but I have clients who could be interested. My question is simple - what is your lot size and what kind of house is it. Ranch, Bungalow. We are only interested in Tear Downs and 2nd Story additions potentials. Bigger the lot the better. And is it Portage or Dunning?

  • Mark 60634 Foundation crack repair pro

    I remember in 2011 I had good couple of days and listed 2 of my rehabbed properties for $1 each. Yes $1.
    Guess what happened?
    I sold them later for the amount of the market value. But sure there were some people who offered $2 for the property lol 😁.
    So people remember you can list let's say your 300k home for 500k or even for $1. It will sell for the amount people want to pay or what the appraisal is going to be. That's it. Simple.

Ald. Cappleman Caught on Camera Disrespecting an African American Woman on 7/26/17

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. See the Tribune Editorial and photos at:http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/opinion/editorials/ct-city-council-public-comments-edit-0727-md-20170726-story.html

    When Chicagoans want to speak, the mayor and aldermen should want to listen
    The City Council on Wednesday activated its new digital "shot clock" in chambers. That's basketball lingo, but here's hoping it also refers to the many opportunities Chicago residents will have to speak their minds and take polite shots at the mayor and aldermen, now that a system is finally in place for permitting public comments at council meetings.

    This is exhausting, watching activists find ridiculously benign reasons to harass public officials, often over nothing. Less than nothing fairly often.

    This is exhausting, watching activists find ridiculously benign reasons to harass public officials, often over nothing. Less than nothing fairly often.

    Making mountains out of molehills is one of the reasons weary taxpayers don't want to give them what thry want, because they're never satisfied.

    Their professional grievance industry only seeks to grow and grow until every special snowflake is compensated for any perceived slight.

    Solving the problems would put them out of work.

    The constant drama over agonizing minutiae matters little to those raising families and other productive, healthy human activities.

    Most of us have real problems, not melting down because a busy public official didn't give them a pat in the head.

    VIDEO: Black Chicago Activists Praise Trump, Blame 'Racist Democrat Machine' For Carnage " Alex Jones' Infowars: There's a war on for your mind!
    Black community organizers in Chicago are blasting the 'racist Democrat machine' and rampant corruption as the primary reasons their once-great city is deteriorating rapidly amidst shocking violence, crippling economic depression, and eroding infrastructure in a powerful new short film.

    @Pedro Garciano - But that has nothing to do with Infowars. Stay on topic. Do not deflect from the issue.

  • Pedro Garciano Defeat globalism!

    MA, Breitbart and Infowars report what's going on with Debbie Wasserman Schultz (for example) but the main stream media hide it from you. They select what to tell you, and how to tell it to you, all in compliance with an agenda.
    CNN, MSNBC, etc. are not news channels anymore. They're "activist" channels.
    Remember how very biased they were during election season? Wikileaks revealed their plans.

American Flag at Osterman Beach

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.

  • Pedro Garciano Defeat globalism!

    Yes! Old Glory should fly everywhere.

  • Helen NoH North of Howard for 55 + years

    Wazzy, but nothing has been done, has it? So the alderman's office finally responded to 60660's complaint, but the alderman's staff is not going to go put up a flag at the beach, and posting the complaint on EveryBlock isn't going to get the job done either.
