The former St. Nicholas Church in Roseland

No comments :
You might see this reposted onto our ig page. In the meantime here's Eric Allix Rogers photo of this vacant church in Roseland at 113th Place and State Street.

There are some great buildings and architecture in our communities. Someone out there appreciates them, if only there was a way to keep these buildings in use so they won't meet the wrecking ball.

Tribune: Mom watches paramedics treat dying gunshot victim, then gets a call that it's her daughter

No comments :
This homicide occurred near 107th & Indiana. We need to do something about our gun violence problem. An innocent person taken in a gang shooting crossfire.

No HS diploma with a college acceptance letter???

No comments :
I'm glad that when I tweeted this story and then clicked link there were some updates to it. Some of the plan I like as far as allowing CPS students some leeway as far as their future plans. To be honest of only this policy was in force when it was time for me to figure out my path. Please click link in the tweet embedded below.

Just another salvo from Mayor Rahm Emanuel against President Donald Trump as the current President continues to take shots at Chicago. Many of those shots are regarding the gun violence issue. Emanuel also took shots at his old friend Bruce Rauner as he has also made statements against Chicago's schools.

Standing water at Abbott Park

No comments :
After Thursday's heavy rain this is how Abbott Park at 95th & Michigan had fared earlier this afternoon. After the heavy snow melts and with heavy precipitation it seems prone to standing water in the grassy areas of the park. And standing water on the sidewalks surrounding the park.
