In Support of the Northside Community Resources (formerly Rogers Park Community Council)

Our greatest gift is that a talented and hard working Executive Director, Chris Zala, is running the ship. He follows a line of talented Executive Directors who preceded him – as both of his predecessors, Cary Steinbuck and Elizabeth Vitell, can attest to the grueling work load and countless challenges that this position requires, especially during times of governmental budget cuts and cumbersome compliance requirements. I am personally aware of that Chris and other staffers at times put in long hours and sacrifice many weekends working to meet onerous grant deadlines – and they do this, in part, because its their job to do so, and more so because they are dedicated to the success of the organization, and to its core mission (as stated on the organization’s website): Northside Community Resources (NCR), was organized in 1952 to improve the quality of life in Rogers Park through social, civic and educational initiatives that foster health and welfare, urban renewal and conversation, law enforcement, and community organization.

Personal Bears vs Bills National Anthem Mayheim

In this video, you can see the excitement as I was eagerly awaiting my brother's fly over ("Where the hell is he?" I wondered, at the end of the anthem), and desperately trying to get Corbin's attention. This video truly captures a wonderful Sunday moment!!!!

About the Author

Mike G's photoMike Glasser

Mike has a long term relationship with Rogers Park, having lived here at various times in his life, most recently returning to the neighborhood in August, 2009. While living here as a third year law student, he remembers drunken nights at Biddy Mulligan’s and hosting a couple of memorable parties that he, hypocritically, now forbids his own tenants from having. Years later, after completing his stint as a lawyer, Mike started investing in apartment buildings in Rogers Park (and elsewhere), and soon after, did what many newly divorced real estate investors do: he moved into one of his buildings. In 1992 Mike was one of the founding members of the Rogers Park Builders Group, an organization that he eventually headed for six years, until yielding those reigns three years ago. Around a decade ago, on a whim, he reserved the web site “,” which he has been developing ever since, and which co-hosts RP BizArts networking events. Mike is the proud father of three wonderful children, Amy, Mitch and Ella.
