Bungalow Love / Re: Installed 10 Solar Panels on my bungalow

Does your house happen to be on East Avenue near Cermak?  I see a house with solar panels on the corner of East and twenty third.  My building is on Scoville behind it.

Did anyone actually locate a window company to redo the old windows?  I had just sashes come out and look at them....they could do it but I am loathe to start a project in the dead of winter.

General Discussion / What went down on Saturday early evening?
« Last post by Toria on December 15, 2014, 07:33:42 AM »
I was driving west on Cermak road east of Oak Park Ave. on Saturday evening around six or so and there was a long traffic jam going east...I saw the cops had a couple of streets blocked off and a fire truck, paramedics and police were there but I could see no accident.  This was around the Popyeyes on Cermak, and involved a few streets.

 I laughed when I saw the following line in former Governor Jim Thompson's tribute to Judy Barr Topinka:

"Judy Baar Topinka was responsible for the lowest point in my political career. Campaigning with her when she was a state senator, she said that sewers in Berwyn needed an upgrade and requested state funds. I said I would consider it, and in the next instant one of her assistants came around the corner with a ladder. A manhole cover was removed and down into the sewer went Judy, followed by a surprised and somewhat reluctant governor. Clearly admiring of her ingenuity, I gave her the money."

I noticed a wrecking crew today, tearing down the former Guadalajara's restaurant on Harlem & Ogden.  It has been vacant for a few years. It used to be a good Mexican restaurant when it opened up, but after a few years, the service & cleanliness had become pretty bad.  Anyone know what the plans are for the site?

 I heard the KIA dealership is taking over the site to enlarge their car lot.  KIA is also taking over the auto shop east of Guadalajara as well.
