non sequitur Friday

I was in San Francisco recently and had a fun experience while riding a bus. A Cuban percussionist was sitting at the front of the bus and having a very animated conversation with the bus driver. He was drumming a little, she was singing a little, and they were sharing their love for Celia Cruz - la Reina de musica Cubana.  It was the kind of spontaneous fun that sometimes happens on public transit.

CANCELLED - Major Taylor Trail workday on Sat. 6/8

This event is cancelled due to muddy conditions in the work area. Stay tuned for future workdays. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- There's another trail clean-up workday happening. This one is on Sat. 6/8 from 9 am to noon where the trail meets 115th St. (just west of Halsted). We'll be picking up trash, cutting brush, and stacking piles of brush for pickup. 

Dressing for yard work is appropriate, including boots or shoes that you don't mind getting mud on, and work gloves or gardening gloves.

19th ward town hall meeting 6/5

There will be a town hall meeting on Wednesday 6/5 at the 22nd district police station, 1900 W. Monterey Ave.

weekend schedule change on the Rock Island

Metra announced that they're adding a few trains to the summer weekend schedule. Unfortunately, this isn't helpful to most of us, because they're added to JOLIET trains, not ours. We still have a 3 hour gap between Saturday night trains (8:10 pm to 11:15 pm), while the new schedule gives Joliet folks THREE trains in a comparable time window (7:40 pm to 10 pm), in addition to the 11:15 train that services all of us. Metra - you suck! Click here to see the schedule on Metra's web site.
