BAPA's 39th Annual Beverly Home Tour

The Beverly Area Planning Association's 39th Annual Beverly Hills/Morgan Park Home Tour will showcase five residences Sunday.

Included this year are a three-story 1920s Tudor tucked by the edge of the woods; a modest cottage that has been transformed into a spacious home with related living; a Victorian-era hilltop mansion built by the president of a lumber milling company and recently renovated; a Colonial-style home with a family-centered addition; and a Craftsman-style home built on a double lot and boasting many of its outstanding original architectural details.

Matt Walsh, executive director of the planning association, said tickets will be available Sunday.
"We typically sell most of the tickets on the day of the home tour," he said.

Tickets are $25 in advance or $30 at the door, and they are available by calling (773) 233-3100 or online at

Exact addresses of each home are available once tickets are bought, Walsh said.

Participants can choose to take the tour on their own in their own vehicles or, for an additional $4, take a guided tour of the historic districts by trolley.

Trolleys leave the Beverly Arts Center approximately every 30 minutes from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Democracy at Work

This came from the comments section:

It is not in the nature of politics to elect the best person since, by definition, the best man or woman does not desire to govern their fellowmen. Given this general truth, the office (through the citizenry) should seek the official, rather than the official seeking the office.

In and around 60655, there are many talented individuals who express their devotion to our community through acts of volunteerism. Let's recognize their commitment.

Start a post seeking comments that identify individuals who display the traits we seek in a public servant. Let's help the office find its official.

Okay, so who in the community do you think should be the official in office. Remember we want individuals who display the GOOD AND HONEST qualities of an elected official, not the norm we are use to in Crook County.

What do you want on 60655 blog?

I get a lot of email bashing the site....oh well, so be it. This site is actually for all of you, so what would you like to see on the site. I have my people who love the polls and those who don't. Someone out there loves the hangman game. What do you like or dislike that you want to see added or deleted. This blog has been up for almost 5 months and is still a work in progress. Thanks to all of you who contribute.

Some Misc Info

There will be an information-packed meeting for business owners in May at Fat Tommy’s new location, 3031 W. 111th St . It’s guaranteed to be a worthwhile use of everyone’s time.
(Date and Time to be announced). See the Mount Greenwood Local Redevelopment Corporation.

LaFiesta will be expanding their parking lot this Spring/Summer (looks like they will taking over the old used car dealership next door).

Looks like the new Fat Tommy's will be opening very soon. It looks good. There will be outdoor seating and they will be selling ice cream too.

That's all I have right now... happy Friday!
