Southside Irish Parade!

A quarter of million people descended on 60655 and 60643 yesterday. The aftermath...well, it looks like a war zone. Is it really worth it anymore? I can't believe some of the horror stories circulating. I am scared to even look up the parade on You Tube. Fights, vomiting, urinating, defecating, not to mention the 15 and 16 year olds wasted before the parade even stepped off. Is it even worth it? Do the bars and restaurants make any money on this?

The good news - at least the really bad pot holes on Western have been fixed.

Open Post for week 3/16 - 3/22

Open post for this week.

Salvation Army Building for Sale!

The Salvation Army building on 114th & Central Park will be up for sale very soon possibly within the next 4 months. This information needs to reach every single household in Mt. Greenwood. What would they like to see done with this building? I URGE every resident to contact the ward office insisting that everyone in Mt. Greenwood know what will happen with this building BEFORE it is sold. If everyone calls, the alderman's office will need to hold a town hall meeting so we can have a better understanding before it is sold.
