Two Unfortunate Losses over this Past Weekend (1/15 Postscript - upbeat news. Please read end)

In the last 48 hours came news of the tragic death of two friends of mine, both Rogers Park residents. Donald Morano had lived in my apartment building on Jarvis for over 35 years. He often bragged to me about the day, thirty years ago, where he saw smoke coming from a basement apartment. It was he, Don often reminded me, who called the fire department and prevented the building from burning down.

About the Author

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.
