Does anyone have a suggestion for a person who could build or install banquette bench seating in a corner our kitchen? Also interested in getting glass doors installed in a bathroom. Small projects but I think it takes a person with special skills, at least for the banquette. Thanks. Melba Swoyer

I got that ticket a couple months ago. Timing seemed right, I knew I had run the light at the time, just missed the sign about the cameras. -cg

Michele, didn't that results in more or less scandal? Right at the time I went through a light that had no yellow light went from green to red .

Re: Old DQ location

Thanks Ann....I'm happy to organize a neighborhood meeting as the plans begin to firm up regarding that location.

As a good neighbor, can we find out if Skokie's red-light cameras are running the same scam that Chicago ones are running?

I did some research after being caught some years ago by a recently-installed camera in Chicago...it seemed to me that the light was timed differently. I found out that was, in fact, the case: they changed the length of the yellow light so that motorists who had become used to a certain pattern could be ticketed. Cameras are provided to municipalities by an outside enterprise that has a vested interest in collecting tickets. http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/watchdog/redlight/

Problem is, if they've changed the pattern on the lights to "catch" unsuspecting motorists, they have decreased safety instead of increasing it.

Dear Kristin,

I'm sorry to hear that you got caught by the red-light camera, but I'm thrilled to hear that they are there. I've been trying to ride the McCormick trail and it is impossible to cross the streets without cars running the yellow and the red lights. The "walk" light will shine and four or five cars will still zip through the intersection, every single intersection all day long. It is very frustrating to try to cross the streets, pedestrian or cyclist.

Hi neighbors, you probably already know this, but I didn't see a message about it yet, so....

I just took a $100 bike ride to the Skokie Village Hall to pay for my red light violation, filmed in living technicolor, at Oakton and McCormick. I turned right after the green arrow had gone off, after which it becomes a "no turn on red."
There is apparently so much new business due to the THREE new red light cameras Skokie has installed at McCormick and other intersections that the staff person almost recited a script to me about it....the "good news" being that it's not a moving violation, and the bad news....well you already know the bad news! Take care there.

While we're on the subject of "Black Lives Matter," does anyone know if EPD is still doing their "stop and frisk" scheme in targeted areas? I remember getting an email communique from the City of Evanston about this a while back.

I have some. $5 each. We are selling them as part of the black lives matter campaign. Anyone else interested?

FYI, folks having UPS issues: the new policy is not to allow you to CHOOSE an alternate delivery location, but in the event that you miss one delivery, packages now automatically go to a predetermined delivery location of THEIR choosing.

I only managed to catch this because I have UPS My Choice and got an email - and was able to re-route it to my home. I was told that choosing a preferred redelivery location incurs an upcharge of $5 (and that includes sending it to the neighbor's as directed on my door. Yes, less than 5 yards away will cost me $5.) So, track your packages carefully...

I only noticed the change to Citgo when I went to put gas in the car and new pumps played obnoxious commercials at me.

Ann, any info on the rebranding of the Valero to Citgo at Oakton/Asbury? It came as a complete surprise to me, but I'm cautiously optimistic that along with the refurbished canopies they may also update the building to add a little curb appeal? Do you know if the ownership has changed?

As soon as anything appears to be serious, I will ask you to organize a neighborhood meeting.

 So, Ryan, we're really hopeful that a tasty addition will be coming to that location soon. One of my initial conversations with a representative of the potential tenant included the "" requirement" that a Dairy Queen like ice cream be served .

It truly filled my heart this morning to see so many Black Lives Matter signs in my neighbor's yards. Does anyone have an extra for me, or know the local source for them?

I really wish that we had a contract going back to 1949 at the corner of Ridge and Howard. I still remember the lines coming out the door at our local DQ and wish we could have that back. I'd venture to guess that many of our neighbors would agree. I drive by Dairy Star on Devon and long for the good ol' days.

Jeannie, hopefully your Amazon shipment didn't sprout legs like my box o' paper products did. I ended up filing a claim with the USPS.

Mike, fight the power, lol. Hope that works out for you.

Actually, Mike's planned civil disobedience brings to mind a method for controlling chlorine levels without wasting water and without risking tickets FOR wasting water. I frequently see signs on stakes warning people to not park in a particular stretch of roadway for a specified number of days. What about staking an area with signs saying water restrictions are in abeyance for a specified number of days? People would be in their gardens, watering away in no time!

Here's a thought for a quiet Sunday morning: Remember the discussion of the fire hydrant flushing that the Water Department was doing to equalize the chlorine content or some such? Basically a waste of water in my opinion (and others on the board). Well, as I was putting out the lawn sprinkler for the first time this year, I recalled that the city has some regulations regarding hours that watering is permitted. Done, if memory serves, as a conservation measure.

Notice to all: I am going to water the lawn whenever I want to, paying no attention to the hours. I suppose you could say I am doing my part to help balance the chlorine. However, if the city can waste all the water that they did, I can certainly water my lawn when I want to. Bring on the enforcers!!
