Thanx to the Bloom Township Highway guys , they kept our road cleared last night. I heard they were also helping out the city and state guys last night. All of you deserve a big thank you.

Pure bullcrap.....not a single plow seen near Prairie State (Coolidge Street area) until 4 PM. And even then, the guy left all intersections packed with snow. This town uses pick up trucks to plow? Steger PW way more efficient and professional. Didn't anyone in the Heights watch the news and realize what was coming and get in front of it?
Bilandic in Chicago lost an election for f-ing up a similar situation, what will you guys do with this cluster bleep?

...oh, and one other thing to you Mensa members Pulp fiction and 4th Ward resident....it is "Kudos" not "Cudos", you dimwits!

And that term should be used for "exceptional achievement" , not just for merely doing their job...which they didn't!

No, I'm mad that the CITY is lost!

Great job my ass, it is yet another indication of the eroding level of service in the town.

I am saddened that the remaining citizens just sit back and accept the low standards now in place, standards set by the massive patronage army inserted in virtually every city department.

But, congrats on your teams' election, things are looking up! New business is flowing in and civic pride is at an all time high, isn't it?

Now, go get ready for your GED night class!

Fulp Piction,

I didn't like the old days because of "da boyz" mentality, but the city worked then.

I'm not condoning their other activities by any means but it is intuitively obvious to even the most casual, and dare I say, uneducated observer that at the least city functions were not compromised back then.

Now, the clown car gets fired up hours after a well advertised and predicted storm and the work done subsequently and late is sub-par at best. Actually, this is criminal, given the taxes we pay for these services.

To those of you whom mesh tank tops count as high fashion, enjoy your "I don't give a damn" city service.

Myself, I say reach out and strike down this malingering, complacent regime.

If you want to joust, bring your GED, moron.

Hey UC dude... If you're talking about PSC then I assume you mean Halsted? I'm not sure, but I doubt that that's a town road. Isn't that a State Road? If so, then Chicago Hts doesn't plow it, the state does. Just because a road is located in a town, doesn't mean that that town is the one responsible for plowing it. It could be the town, the township/county or the State itself. It's very confusing to know which roads "belong" to who...

AR...

Wrong, I was not referring to Halsted. I was referring to the streets within the immediate adjacent subdivision that are within the city's responsibility. I understand, and assume that most readers here understand that I wouldn't be bitching to the city about a County/State/Township road...

UC,

Become active in your community. Attend council meetings and work with your city officials to improve your neighborhood. You remind me of the typical person that just sits back in their chair and just runs their mouth and is always just trying to see how much they can take. You have better ideas, then produce something in your nieghborhood. You have better leadership skills, then run for office.

My "GED" class last night taught me to become active if I want to implement change within a community. My "GED" class taught me not to just run my mouth.

The city did a great job in historically difficult circumstances. Salt only works at -10 and above… so there wasn't much they could do in that respect. The Gonzalez administration made our city proud again. Can't wait to hit the campaign trail next year if anyone is dumb enough to challenge the Mayor, which I doubt!

Thanks for the science lesson, Digger, but I was commenting on the lack of any kind of plowing AT ALL on the North End. The only salt used was on the eggs served at "Egg and I" as your crews took yet another break.

The fact that "you" didn't get any trucks to the area until 4 PM speaks volumes as to (your) the city's organizational skills. In fact, one might say that assuming incompetence was not an issue it shows an abject lack of respect for those of us in the North End...perhaps we are not part of the constituency required for re-election?

In any case, another blundered city service, another disservice to us citizens that we have to endure...

Mayor Gonzalez lives on the north end, won those wards easily, and will do so again. In fact he won everywhere except in his opponent's own neighborhood.

It was an historically bad storm, and the city's response was historically heroic. Thank you to all who kept the city safe earlier this week!

HISTORICALLY ??? what did you learn a new word- it was cold **it snowed**- they sat on there butts waiting for it to stop b/4 they could punch the clock to cut out overtime -and the city will apply for state money to pay for the overtime they cut out if its available - thats not historical --its POLITICS !!

The Chicago area has not seen two 12" snow falls or -15 temperatures in over 20 years. It's easy to just say "it snowed" when you don't know the context.

"Historically heroic"....my God, a complete, laughable exaggeration! The surrounding towns were on their streets 10 hours before the Heights was this weekend, a fact.

To use the word "heroic" is an insult to any of the real heroes who gather at the "rock" on Route 30/Chicago Road each Memorial day.

Cut the constant, jingoistic prose, Digger, it insults all of us.
