Where Are The Ambassadors for NOH?

Police nab alleged robber

While working another robbery mission, police received a call of a robbery taking place on the 1600 block of W. Juneway around 8:15 p.m. Nov. 5. Police observed three men fitting the robbers' descriptions on the 1700 block of W. Juneway. As police approached the men, they fled through a gangway. Police circled the block and saw a man in his late teens running through another gangway on the same block.

Police apprehended the man and took him back to the robbery scene, where he was positively identified by the 19-year-old victim. The victim said he was entering his residence when the man allegedly shoved a handgun in his face and said, "Shut-up or I'll shoot you." Two other men in their late teens grabbed the victim's arms and took a cellphone and wallet from his pockets, according to the police report. The victim's wallet was recovered on the scene. Police could not find the other two men, but Ronald Williams, 19, of the 800 block of Brummel in Evanston, was charged with armed robbery. No court information was available.

As I wrote yesterday, maybe the alderpersons in charge of ‘bad wards’ should take care of business. The election is over - the Democrat won; can our local leader start cleaning up his backyard? After all, it is ‘his ward’, we just pay the bills, clean up the trash, and pray we don’t get mugged.

How about sending his ambassadors up here for another reason than getting out the vote? There's the monthly CAPS Beat 2422 meeting tonight at 7PM for starters. I can't remember the last time there was a representative from the ward office attending.

CAPS Beat 2442 meets tonight:
Gateway Senior Apartments
7450 N. Rogers - Community Room
7:00 PM

For someone who's as concerned with environmental issues as Joe Moore pretends to be, he seems blithely unconcerned with the environmental problems in his own back yard, our 49th Ward.

Let Moore address and solve Rogers Park's most urgent environmental problems, which would be the excessive number of bullets flying around and the over-sized population of predators and criminals of various sorts.. and then he can get to work on the rest of world.

In the meantime, Rogers Park might look a little overheated on any thermal map of the planet, given the amount of heat being discharged by firearms around here in the past few months.
