Help!! Lost Dog. My daughter was walking our little black dog Cocker Spaniel/poodle mix last night about 1:00am and the leash broke and she tried running after him but due to a limp in her leg she could not run fast enough and could not catch him. He is fast, but also a very friendly dog and has never been away from home I think something must have spooked him. He was last seen on 105th & Springfield, he is all black with a little white he looks like a puppy cocker Spaniel but he is almost 3 years old. Please if you find him call me we are devastated this dog is part of our family. We have been driving & walking all over the neighborhood all night looking for him.

Sounds good to me but first you have to get rid of the Alderman. This one is not in favor of any good business coming to Mount Greenwood.

Look how long it's taking for the Walgreen's rebuild.

IKEA? That would take up space from Kedzie to Homan west & 111th to 109th North. They can't even figure out how to tear down the three buildings that still exist on the signature corner. Imagine them trying to buy up 150 homes to get that project done!

They'd all end up near 95th and Western.

How about a good, old fashion bakery like Naples or Webers with fresh hot bread and rolls. Nothing like it on Sunday morning or any day of the week...

Get rid of Ginger and the ones she put in place to bring businesses here. Seems to me that the paid position has been milked to extend as long as it has. No progress means continued paid job on the MGLRC. NO PROGRESS, NO HOPE. Mt Greenwood is ran by a dope.

How about a nice big walmart and sams club.

Walmart and Sam's club...have one on 95th and Western. Although, you have to go in there with a gun so you reduce you chance of getting robbed and if you park your car in that lot you will have damage from carts, other cars and people that walk through your car keying it! The Walmart is a dump with very rude crappy workers that don't give you the time or day and Sam's Club...I'd rather drive the distance to Orland Park...at least the clientel is decent and the workers are willng to help you. So let's be realistic! Mt. Greenwood doesn't need another hair salon, doggie groomer/bakery, fast food/ice cream parlor or another bar. It just needs an overhaul...time well past due. Thanks Ginger for slacking off!

COULD BE VOTED ON AS EARLY AS TODAY!

Please take a few minutes to call our two senators today to politely DEMAND that they vote against S.909, the "Hate Crimes" bill.

This bill's primary purpose is to protect homosexuals but the language in it is "undefined" and will give special protection status to 30 different sexual orientations including PEDOPHILES. Go to the following link to see the sick twisted freaks this will protect:

http://www.afa.net/sexualorientationshr1913.asp

Are we supposed to be polite to the pedophiles too? I don't think so!

Here are the numbers for our Senators and it will literally take you 3 minutes to call them both:

(202) 224-2152 - Dick Durbin
(202) 224-2854 - Roland Burris

I'd like to know who is responsible for introducng legislation like this.

Please do your part to help protect our children!...Thanks neighbors

Most of the rundown, dilapidated buildings in this area are owned by the MGLRC. A prime example is the dump on the southwest corner of 111th and Kedzie. Who in their right mind would rent in this old fashioned building?

Of course it takes you to a website probably run by christian conservatives.

Why do they continue to say that pedophiles are homosexuals when everyone knows that most pedophiles are straight white men.

Maybe if these types of groups would get their noses out of my bedroom and worry about what is going on in theirs, the world would be a lot better.

Yes I'm a homosexual, yes I live in Mount Greenwood and no I am not a pedophile, nor are any of my friends. There are many of us that live in Mount Greenwood. Maybe even one of YOUR neighbors Jim McMahon. Be Afraid, Be very Afraid. What a Joke!!!

30 different sexual orientations???? What the hell are these? I agree, voting against this bill is wrong. We have come a long way in tolerance of others who may not be like us but obviously not far enough. Take your hate and your own personal religious views out of our politics. There is no room for you here. Throwing in pediphiles rights is a fear tactic that is not true. There are so many other laws that need clarification but you chose to spew hatred and lies.

There is now an iGO car parked at Ridge Park at 96th and Longwood. It is a car from a non-profit organization where you can rent it by the hour, on line, no paperwork. It is very "Green" If people use it a lot then maybe we will get more. Maybe you can get one in Mt. Greenwood Park. They are very cheap and come in handy when you just need a rental for a few hours!

I whole heartily agree. We just finished 8 years of fear mongering. And from the results this past election, most people are tired of it. If two CONSENTING adults want to live their lives as they see fit and want to get married, why shouldn't they have the opportunity. Until someone gives me any credible evidence how someones elses' marriage was ruined by gay people getting married, I'll continue to support my gay friends who want to get married.

How about we post suggesting who should run against Ginger? If we get some bona fide names, backgrounds, stances, maybe we can be fully informed by the time elections roll around. Who knows? Maybe we can encourage someone (who might not otherwisethink think they have a shot) to give her a run for her money.

Are you for real? Religion has nothing to do with protecting pedophiles and other sexual deviants. You can best believe I have called and will encourage my family and friends to call against this bill THis is disgusting!!!! Take your gay lifestyle that you are trying to cram down everyone's throat and SHOVE IT!!

******************************************
Calm down now, calm down and don’t get your undies in a bunch. I never made any reference whatsoever to a connection between homosexuality and pedophilia. Where did you get that from? Why don’t you take a few minutes and re-read what I wrote, and then read the bill. Anyone with average reading comprehension should have no trouble at all understanding that the point I was making was that the language in this bill leaves the term "sexual orientations" undefined, and therefore many different things that should never be considered a "hate crime," and also gives special protection for pedophiles. That’s all. This is not racial, not religious, not gender specific, not whether someone is gay or straight, not about tolerance or same sex marriage. It’s about PEDOPHILES.

I couldn’t, and I don’t think anyone could care less about what consenting adults do in the privacy of their own homes, so quit acting like someone is attacking you. But I do care about what pedophiles do, and to whom they do it to,……our children. As far as I’m concerned, those that violate the trust and innocence of our young deserve nothing less than blunt castration and a lifetime prison sentence, regardless of who they are.

I don’t know where you’re getting your information from, but to make the statement that most pedophiles are “straight white men,” is utter bullshit! How could anyone call a pedophile “straight?” It doesn't get any more twisted than that. It’s been my observation that these sexual predators come in all shapes and sizes and from all walks of life. In my opinion they are demented individuals and should be kept as far away from the rest of society as possible. And like it or not, even "White Straight Christian Conservatives" that you so readily attack are entitled to their opinions too, just like everyone else in America.

So before the next time you decide to throw a hissy fit and go all “Perez Hilton” on me, either grow, or borrow a pair of balls and sign your name to the poison that you author. The veil of anonymity should not be extended to spineless cowards that expect everyone else to accept their lifestyles, but don’t think anyone else is entitled to have opinions of their own.

And who’s joking who? “Be afraid, be very afraid.” Of what? Some pinhead with a bad attitude? Sorry, that just doesn’t shake me up too much.

To those that think the passage of a bill into Federal Law that leaves the term “sexual orientation” undefined, is a good and tolerant thing, you obviously didn’t take the time to look and see EVERYTHING that it would give protected status to. Simply read it first, and then decide if you still feel that way about it. Here it is:

Among those sexual orientations being protected by S.909 (and HR1913) are these:

Apotemnophilia - sexual arousal associated with the stump(s) of an Amputee
Asphyxophilia - sexual gratification derived from activities that involve oxygen deprivation through hanging, strangulation, or other means
Autogynephilia - the sexual arousal of a man by his own perception of himself as a woman or dressed as a woman
Bisexual - the capacity to feel erotic attraction toward, or to engage in sexual interaction with, both males and females
Coprophilia - sexual arousal associated with feces
Exhibitionism - the act of exposing one’s genitals to an unwilling observer to obtain sexual gratification
Fetishism/Sexual Fetishism - obtaining sexual excitement primarily or exclusively from an inanimate object or a particular part of the body
Frotteurism - approaching an unknown woman from the rear and pressing or rubbing the penis against her buttocks
Heterosexuality - the universal norm of sexuality with those of the opposite sex
Homosexual/Gay/Lesbian - people who form sexual relationships primarily or exclusively with members of their own gender
Gender Identity Disorder - a strong and persistent cross-gender identification, which is the desire to be, or the insistence that one is, or the other sex, "along with" persistent discomfort about one’s assigned sex or a sense of the inappropriateness in the gender role of that sex
Gerontosexuality - distinct preference for sexual relationships primarily or exclusively with an elderly partner
Incest - sex with a sibling or parent
Kleptophilia - obtaining sexual excitement from stealing
Klismaphilia - erotic pleasure derived from enemas
Necrophilia - sexual arousal and/or activity with a corpse
Partialism - A fetish in which a person is sexually attracted to a specific body part exclusive of the person
Pedophilia - Sexual activity with a prepubescent child (generally age 13 years or younger). The individual with pedophilia must be age 16 years or older and at least 5 years older than the child. For individuals in late adolescence with pedophilia, no precise age difference is specified, and clinical judgment must be used; both the sexual maturity of the child and the age difference must be taken into account; the adult may be sexually attracted to opposite sex, same sex, or prefer either
Prostitution - the act or practice of offering sexual stimulation or intercourse for money
Sexual Masochism - obtaining sexual gratification by being subjected to pain or humiliation
Sexual Sadism - the intentional infliction of pain or humiliation on another person in order to achieve sexual excitement
Telephone Scatalogia - sexual arousal associated with making or receiving obscene phone calls
Toucherism - characterized by a strong desire to touch the breast or genitals of an unknown woman without her consent; often occurs in conjunction with other paraphilia
Transgenderism - an umbrella term referring to and/or covering transvestitism, drag queen/king, and transsexualism
Transsexual - a person whose gender identity is different from his or her anatomical gender
Transvestite - a person who is sexually stimulated or gratified by wearing the clothes of the other gender
Transvestic Fetishism - intense sexually arousing fantasies, sexual urges, or behaviors involving cross-dressing
Urophilia - sexual arousal associated with urine
Voyeurism - obtaining sexual arousal by observing people without their consent when they are undressed or engaged in sexual activity
Zoophilia/Bestiality - engaging in sexual activity with animals

To protect a "sexual orientation" under S.909 (and HR1913) - while leaving that term undefined -- is to protect this whole range of bizarre sexual behaviors. It is to normalize by federal law what are still considered to be mental disorders (paraphilias) by the American Psychiatric Association.

I just wanted to say that this blog has taken a nice turn recently, posting comments that pertain to 60655, rather than bashing eachother anonymously. I don't know if it's the people, or the blog writer's editing. I think we should keep this site as an informative blog about the neighborhood & don't post anything with this nonsense name calling. It's an embarrassment to our neighborhood.

uggghhhhh... could only read the first 3 and had to stop.
Right or wrong, homosexuality is considered a deviant behavior by many for various reasons. I guess what goes on between 2 consenting adults should stay that way. However, to group pedophiles, with homosexuals isn't correct, because pedophiles prey, we should remember this when we pray. I suppose it would anger me if I were a homosexual.

I agree, gay or straight should be kept in the bedroom, but then why are all the gays/lesbos always making it a political issue?

Just an FYI - there will no more comments posted about the "Hate Crimes" bill. Opinions have been expressed and will be left up, but no more comments will be posted. This has turned VERY nasty and almost scary (talking about some of the comments that were not posted).
