Even if your street isn't affected you are still affected. I'm asking those concerned to join me in setting aside a time to speak to city council about zoning laws and ordinance that may help us preserve home ownership. I'm not a lawyer but I don't believe this sort of thing could so easily take place in some of our suburban neighborhoods. It's…

SW meeting 8/15

I love the community and the people. I feel when Dr. Stroud was the Leader at school #16 he engaged the parents to get involved.

Today we teach from a desk room, teacher, point of view, and our children has not adjusted to this obsolete teaching method. Our children today are learning virtue online, wireless cell phone with all the web design…

Single Family Homes Becoming Appartments

Maybe it's just me or maybe I'm late to the game, but I think I'm seeing a bad trend around my neck of the 19th ward. That is the turning of good single family homes into apartments.
