Started in November 2007, the blog basically serves as a locally based site discussing issues of importance to our portion of Chicago's South Side. This blog is authored by three volunteers who live within Chicago's 6th Ward (map to the left) containing the neighborhoods of Englewood, Park Manor, Chatham, Greater Grand Crossing, West Chesterfield, and Roseland Heights.

There may be three volunteers here, but varying viewpoints on the issues that affect us. We may not always agree and you the reader may not always agree with any of us. That's OK, let's be mindful and respectful of those differences and create an on-line forum for decent discourse about where our community will go in the next decade. The issues discussed here may involve our community or it may be involve either the whole city, county, state, or nation.

It is my hope that we can have as large as focus as possible onto our local community. With that in mind, it may require your participation in the discussion, so LET'S START TALKIN'!
