bold burglars

What common thread do you notice between these incident listings from EveryBlock?  Most of them happened between 7:30 and 9:30 a.m. on a weekday morning, when there's usually a bit of traffic as kids go to school and people go to work (or come home from overnight shifts).  This is a change from the pattern we were seeing for a while where a lot of burglaries were happening at 3 or 4 a.m.

ward remap public meeting on 11/9

If you're interested in attending a public meeting about the proposed ward remap, there's one in the neighborhood on Wed. 11/9 at Morgan Park High School auditorium, 1744 W. Pryor Ave., from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

If you're unable to attend that meeting, there will be another on Thurs. 11/17 at City Hall City Council chambers, 121 N. LaSalle St. from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. I'm betting that one will be a bit more crowded.
