I'm down in the north end of Berwyn often, everything seems to be getting worse.Blight is taking over the alleys, cars are parked so no one can get to their home.What happened to the overnight city stickers?Ticketing was going on then nothing cars are back on the streets overnight. Oh! I forgot to mention oil changes in the front are lawns littered with empty cans and rags.Game is on again with the garbage,homes are converted to three flats only one garbage can.So use your neighbors garage apron and pile garbage on top of theirs the alleys are so bad,but the honest citizens get ticketed because of others garbage on their property!!!!  I have been going by the same homes for over 10 years same blight look like shit. I guess the inspectors take the path of leased resistance,hell too cold to work. There was a time when one inspector kept writing the same homes over and over again without notifying the owners, mostly very minor issues, major ones were left go!!!!!! The big thing now is weeds in the back of the home, hell mostly every home has types of flowers in the back they will die in the fall. How come most single family homes being flipped are turned into three flats? Wasn't this illegal?

What's the worst intersection in north Berwyn you've seen?

One is Roosevelt and Highland,just go South through the alleys, streets are loaded with cars at night, no overnight stickers. Just pick an alley from Lombard to Ridgeland,then go north to 26th street.

I'm here, I knew Bill Lukes, Dick Ourada, Russ ......., Johnny Maracek, a host of others all north of 16th street. George Krejci, on Harvey, I think?

My God, I haven't logged in for so long, I'm really sorry, Senator! Time ticks away for us old-timers. Do you remember Charlie Foune? Still in Chicago, has visited us numerous times here in AZ since 2010.

Please, update me........Steve
