Weekly Update from Your Alderman – March 24, 2017

Weekly Update from Your Alderman: More good news from Senn High School, Arts events this weekend, and more!
March 24, 2017

Dear Neighbor:

Last week we shared a video highlighting Senn High School and my ongoing partnership with the school. This week, Senn Principal Mary Beck saw her Freshman enrollment numbers for the upcoming 2017-2018 school year. Senn will welcome 248 freshmen, up from this year’s number of 215. This marks the fifth year in a row that Senn has seen an increase in the number of incoming freshmen. I am proud of the strides the school is making, and the consistency of high performance of the IB and Arts programs.

Individually, Senn students continue to excel and bring prestige to the school: Last weekend, Ireon Roach won the individual title for the second year in a row at Louder Than A Bomb; the Senn indoor girls track team took third in their meet at University of Chicago on Saturday—Amya Quillin placed first in girls shot-put while Tia Jimjimo and Edgar Perez each placed third in girls and boys 800m, respectively; SennArts students Alex Brinkman and Maeve Hastings received Division I Superior Ratings at the CPS Solo Festival. These achievements speak to the leadership and dedication of Senn staff and students.

In the coming weeks, you’ll start to notice posters like the one above in the windows of local businesses highlighting “Senn-sational” students and demonstrating support for Senn High School. Senn is working closely with my office and the Edgewater Chamber of Commerce to connect businesses to the school. Please consider supporting Friends of Senn’s annual fundraising appeal with a donation, click here for more information or to donate.

Jackalope Theatre is a great community partner and arts supporter of SennArts Theatre department. I encourage you to see their current production, The Snare, running through April 1 at their theatre in the Broadway Armory. Jackalope also supports The Yard, a theatre company that came out of the SennArts Theatre department producing work relevant to young people, performed by young people. The Yard’s upcoming production of Blood at the Root opens Wednesday, April 12, at The Frontier, a storefront theatre managed by Jackalope, at 1106 W. Thorndale.

My office will host a Teen Job Drive at the Edgewater Library, 6000 N. Broadway, on Monday, April 24, 3:30pm. Please encourage teens and young adults in your life to apply for a summer job through One Summer Chicago or After School Matters. I will provide more details about the job drive in future newsletters.

One of the great assets of our community is the strong presence and participation of talented artists. This weekend, there are two opportunities to support local artists. Tonight, please join me in welcoming one of my favorite local artists, Chuck Meyers, to Scout in Andersonville. Chuck paints beautiful works showcasing the alleys of our community. There is an opening reception tonight at Scout, 5221 N. Clark St., from 6 – 9pm. Tomorrow the Edgewater Beach Apartments, 5555 N. Broadway, is hosting their second annual art fair from 10:30am – 3:30pm in the soda fountain (former location of Anna Held Florist). Please come out and support the arts in our community.

Have a great weekend, and enjoy the warm temperatures!

Sincerely,
Harry Osterman
Alderman, 48th Ward

If you haven’t received the rebate before, you’ll need to file an application form.  Please click here for instructions and the correct form to use.​  You’ll need to submit an application form along with copies of 3 documents: 1) water bill from the homeowner’s association, 2nd installment Property Tax bill (2015), and drivers license/state ID.​

Sustainability Tip of the Week
TIP:  CHECK YOUR TIRES FOR SAFETY & SAVINGS
  • Schedule a regular check of your tires – both the tire pressure and tread depth. Use a gauge to check that the tire pressure agrees with the label on the door, not the maximum pressure shown on the tires’ sidewalls. Uneven wear indicates a need for wheel alignment. Check the tires for bulges and bald spots.
  • Look carefully to see if the wear bars are showing at right angles to the treads. Evenly spaced around the tires, wear bars appear when tread depth is less than 2/32 inch. An easy check is to insert a nickel between the treads.  If the head on the nickel is fully visible, it is time to replace the tire.
These actions will protect you and your family, reduce the amount of gas used and less gas equals fewer emissions and cleaner air.
