Dear Neighbors,

This morning the continuance hearing regarding criminal trespass to property against Arshad Thomas took place at the Cook County Courthouse at Grand/Central. Mr. Thomas had been granted this extra time from his original date to seek and retain an attorney, which he failed to provide today. The judge issued a new date of Tuesday, February 17th, at 9:00 AM in the same location.

Alderman Laurino, who was in attendance at court today, strongly encourages our entire community to mark their calendars and plan to attend the next court date. It is crucial that we, as a community, make a strong impression on the judge.

In preparation we also hope you'll take part in this month's CAPS meeting, where this issue will surely be discussed. Please note that the meeting time and place has changed. The meeting will now be held at 6:30 PM at the North Mayfair Church (Salvation Army grounds), 5020 N. Pulaski on Wednesday, January 28th. It will also encompass combined police beats of 1711-12-13.

Please make the time to attend both events, if possible. Carpools are strongly suggested. Please help us spread the word!


We'd like to welcome our latest board member, Mike Frasure, who will be spearheading our Block Captain program. If you have interest in becoming a block captain volunteer or want additional information about the program, please contact Mike at or call him at (312) 401-3675. You, too, can become a board member and contribute your valuable ideas and expertise to our community causes. Contact Kathy Bedrio at or call (773) 322-3512 if you'd like to join the board. On the fence? Come to a meeting and see what we do, think about it, then let us know. Our next meeting is March 12th.

Remember to check our calendar for local activities and events. We try our best to find things of interest for all ages.

In the meantime, stay toasty! Please take extra care of your pets, and don't forget to check on the elderly, disabled, or otherwise vulnerable neighbors!
