First of all, I take care of my yard. Since I have been here, over 4 years, I have put in wood chips around the trees, by the garbage cans, along the side of the house and a long stretch in my back yard; along with brick borders all around. I also weed eat the pathway to the park and rack it once in a while. Yes, it's true that some parents do not watch their children in this neighborhood; as in other neighborhood also and some of the kids are making the park look bad by leaving furniture, toys etc...and I have spoken to the Alderwoman about this. People with nothing to do? I am constantly busy, along with raising my child. whom I don't let go to the park by herself or run the neighborhood. We also do not do drugs in our home and I pick up garbage all the time in the yard. I'm not sure why their have been two domestic situations in the same neighborhood in a years time; but they are exactly that - domestic. On a positive note, it is pretty much a friendly area to live in, neighbors chat and are on the most part friendly. I think the people that have to much time on their hands on the ones making these comments and assumptions and not knowing all the facts.

YOU know who the bad people are. Get on the phone and call anyone you can think of. Police,politicians,social services.City, county and state. Take back your neighborhood !

I have spoken to the Alderwoman regarding the trash in the park and possibly getting wood chips to clear up the mud; but nothing has been done as of yet. I have also heard that some of the low lifes are being evicted. The Police have even picked up a 3 year old three times and have taken him home from wandering the streets; but nothing seems to get done about it.

"HOPE"? What Hope? Where do you think the "hope" is coming from? Sounds like a washed up political slogan to me.
