The Chicago Way

For all you cops and firemen waiting for your raises.

I don't get it, why do we need 50 alderman? What can they do that dialing 311 can't. All that money and most only work part-time.

FYI - Solving the Problems of Ice Rinks We Call Streets

I received an email regarding on how to get the streets salted. I don't know about the rest of you, but I felt like my car was ice skating this past snow fall. Maybe if we all call, we can get our streets salted in a timely manner. Most of us are forced to be taxpayers, so let's get our money's worth.

Contact 311 and they will put a ticket in to salt your side street. I don't know how fast but they do put a ticket in and it is suppose to get done.

They also put a ticket in to track your alley as well.

Here's another one.

This has been emailed to me several times and is under comments in another post. Please, again, be aware of your surroundings.

Ok this is really getting ridiculous. There was another armed robbery in our neighborhood last night (Thursday at 7:15pm) at 2523 W. 110th pl (campbell). The 2 victims were in their vehicle when approached by 3 male blacks. 2 had weapons. All 3 were young (16-19) and wearing doo-rags with half their face only showing. The 3 ran southbound but ended up in front of the Beverly Arts Center. Squads did show and went inside the BAC but the offenders fled. Supposedly 1 is in custody with no weapon recovered as of now. I should get more info tomorrow hopefully. PLEASE be aware of your surroundings and let's all watch out for each other. Don't be afraid to call on ANYONE you think is suspicious! And we ALL have to email or call Rugai and ask what is being done about this. All off the beat cars that are assigned to our areas are usually out east answering other calls and they are working their asses off but not in the area where we need them. Check your windows and make sure they are locked. Lock your doors (including screen doors) at all times. If u go shovel, take garbage out or whatever, lock your door and take your keys with you. Too many times (lately) people are finding people in their homes. Stay safe!"

Empty Stores and Lots

What kind of businesses would you like to see move into the empty stores and lots in 60655? There are plenty of locations up and down 111th Street, a few on Kedzie, many on Western. Corner of 115th and Western is horrible! Would like to see something going in on 111th and Pulaski. Maybe this post will give some future business owners some ideas?
