I thought I read something somewhere about an electronics recycling event sometime in May, in Evanston or nearby on the north shore, but now I can't find it on the Internet. Anyone know if any such thing is scheduled, and if so where/when?

Thank you.

Just dropped off stuff for shredding at Park School. They were thrilled to get it and I was thrilled to give it! They use the shredded material in gardens or for projects. It is also their hope that this is giving their students job experience which will help them get future jobs. The contact person is Hillary Mass (her last name has changed since it was last posted). Her contact number is 847-424-2309.

A big thank you to Ann Rainey for alerting us to this possibility.

Re: 29734 & 29739

The 311 staff and the Special Pickup crew are absolutely stellar.

When I was clearing out my old building in the 9th Ward before moving here, if I knew I'd have friends coming to help me clear an apartment, I could call 311 on Friday to arrange a pickup for Monday, clear and clean the space over the weekend and leave a mountain of stuff piled along the alley. Then by the time I got home on Monday afternoon, it was all cleared away as if it had never been there!

Hi Ann.
You are right, the city special pickup guys are usually very efficient. I've requested several pickups in the past and it always happens fast. This time, however... not so much. An owner in our building who moved out a week and a half ago requested a special pickup for a couch that she placed near the dumpsters on the north side of our building (intersection of Brummel and Clyde/Callan alley) but the couch has been there all this time. I called 311 and left a message Friday and the couch is still there. Could you please look into it?
Also, thanks for all the amazing work you do! You rock!

Dear Friends,

I have created a Meal Train for Karen Johnson and her family. If you would like to deliver a hot meal to this family, suffering the loss of a husband, father, and the Dad who was a fixture in the neighborhood and at the schools, please sign up here. The calendar is for the next three weeks: http://www.mealtrain.com/?id=m15ab811ohnt

Ann, I received an email from you at 1:58am this morning. It was sent to 17 people, with a link ("Hello! News:..."). I did not click on the link since it seemed odd and could be a virus. Was it legitimate or was your account hacked? Thought you should know just in case you didn't actually send it out.

The alley parallel with Brummel ,east of Ridge, has looked like this way after the winter freeze, can someone please inspect, clean or fine the 209 Ridge building? It seems that every time someone moves out of the building the trash is strewn in the ally and does not make it in the dumpster and sits for weeks.

Thanks, Ann. To my surprise, a NICOR rep did show up. I was just curious about which parkways are going to get torn up for the new gas meter installations. It turns out that only small parts of various parkways will be affected. Thanks for the quick movement on this.

Terry I've only lived here a year and a half but I'm assuming that the people who park over on this side of Howard are on the boot list. In the last few weeks the city has made a lot more areas north of Howard Evanston cars only from 6pm to 6am. Also I know the building I live in has 23 condos and when I moved in a bunch were empty and now it is full. Maybe this is happening in other buildings around here too.

Regarding the Evanston Animal Shelter. The city should be ashamed with how it conducted these meetings. Don't take my word for it, listen to the subcommittee meetings in particular and decide for yourselves. Ann managed to be one of the few persons on the council who stayed objective. My hat is always off to her.

That is my story and I'm sticking to it. Here is your link.

Just a question in regard to all the talk about parking problems in the neighborhood: What has changed in the past year or so, compared to say 5 years or 10 years ago, that's turned the situation into such a crisis?

Did Chicago change parking rules on their side of Howard?
