NabeWise - Rogers Park

NabeWise - Rogers Park NabeWise lets you rate your neighborhood similar to how Yelp works. Help them fill in the blanks and offer your impressions. Here is part of what they/you say...Harmoniously diverse and the northernmost nabe in all of Chicago, Rogers Park is known as place where it’s easy (or at least easier) to find city real estate that fits your needs. Highlights here include abundant parks, dreamy Lake Michigan beaches (about a 10 minute walk away from anywhere in the nabe), and regal Loyola University. Commercial venues here consist mostly of mom and pop shops and restaurants and a few student dive bars. Ditch your car here (parking’s a problem) and ride downtown on the red line—you’re guaranteed a seat, as Rogers Park is one of its early stops. Urging for suburbia? Take the red line the other way to Evanston just to the north. Get it all right here...

Daniel R. Gomez, Classical Guitarist

Daniel R. Gomez, Classical Guitarist By Elissa JonesRogers Park has long been home to many diverse artists, one of whom is Daniel R. Gomez, 32. He is a guitarist specializing in classical and South American folk music. Slender and unassuming, with a slight accent from his native of Lima [Peru], Gomez explained that he had emigrated alone to Chicago in 2006, to join relatives living here. Often, musicians begin their craft at a young age. Not so with Gomez; he did not begin playing guitar until age 26. However, he made up for lost time, motivated by a search for passion in his life. Initially, he was self-taught.

Please Help us Project our Work

Please Help us Project our Work My Students: Hello and Welcome! Thank you in advance for choosing my proposal to read. Our school is located in the East Rogers Park area of the City of Chicago. It serves a population of great need, 95% of our students receive free and/or reduced lunch meals. My classroom consists of twenty-two wonderful Second-Graders. These students are in the processes of acquiring a second language, English. As their teacher I can see the excitement, frustration, motivation and desire all rolled into one. As a bilingual teacher, one of my goals is to ease this transition and make it as smooth as possible. I want learning to be fun and pain-free and I think that with your help, I can do that. My Project: The resource I am requesting is an LCD Projector. This tool will not only teach my students new vocabulary, but, also, expose them to 21st Century Technology. My belief is that if we want our children to be up-to-par to other students around the world and in more affluent areas, we must provide the tools necessary to make this happen.

Grand Opening of the Pottawattomie Dog-Friendly Area (DFA) - Update

Grand Opening of the Pottawattomie Dog-Friendly Area (DFA) - Update Update: The dog park is NOT completed. We based October 2 on Park District estimates. However, Paschen Construction moves at its own pace ... and they're running late on construction projects for Chicago Public Schools, which took priority. The Grand Opening and Ribbon cutting with Alderman Moore is being postponed for a week or two. The Walk-a-Thon is still ON. While the dog park is not completed, people will be able to walk around the area, which is 75% completed. Sorry for the confusion. I sent out an updated e-mail on Thursday and Joe Moore sent one out on Friday. Bottom Line: the dog park is nearly completed ... and based on what has been completed, it's going to be great: large space, with both a section for large and small dogs.

North of Howard 808s Member Reflects on Integrity

By: Dominique Johns. What I’ve learned thus far is that taking a leap of faith, having set goals, and a plan to follow, will keep us on the right path, allowing our dreams to become reality and secure our integrity. Although we have barriers in life that might distract us from achieving our main goals, whether its having children, being in trouble with the law, being financially unstable and so forth, by having faith in ourselves...

“My Worst Day Ever” - a local resident shares her 9/11 experience

By Elissa Jones Fastening my seatbelt, I settled back into the airplane seat. I was looking forward to takeoff, so that I could then go to sleep. The previous night, my mind had continually raced through a series of agitated, aimless thoughts, and I had gotten to O'hare on - shall we say - "autopilot.” Sure, I'm still a little scared of flying, even while finding it exciting. 'Intellectually, I know it's safer than driving. We just hear more about plane crashes than car accidents,' I reassured myself. I looked out the window. It was a sunny morning. Too bad I wouldn't see much of it.
