Thank You.

While the final stats won't be available for another few days, we are pleased to report that 2015 was a year of progress for public safety in Wrigleyville and Boystown. But, to borrow a cliche from our city's politicians, "there is much work to be done."

Thank you for putting pressure on your elected representatives and police executives—not the cops on the street, mind you—as well as the private entities whose events had been allowed to run rampant. We're seeing modest movement in the right direction on a number of fronts. So, please continue those efforts on your end.

We particularly would like to thank our supporters who've seen fit to make a donation to our tip jar or to purchase one of our summertime "Helmont" T-shirts.

Over the next few months, we'll be replacing some equipment that has, without exaggeration, been running 24/7 for nearly three years. Your support will help defray the costs of those purchases.

We've sent thank-you notes to everyone who provided an email address with recent tip jar contributions.

A few contributions came in without email addresses over the past couple of months, so we'll say "thank you" publicly here:

DW on December 31.
LK on December 30.
CW on December 16.
MG on December 13.
BM on December 13.
DB on December 13.
DH on December 13.
SA on December 5.
DF on December 4.
ES on November 14.

Thanks again. Let's continue to make our neighborhood better in 2016.

  1. I'm surprised there isn't a TT or RE on the contribution list!

  2. Come on everyone.
    $100.? $50?
    This is an easy decision.
    Support an outfit that supports us - the residents / property owners / business owners of the neighborhood - in a HUGE way.
    Step up and make it happen.
    Because if you don't, nobody else will.

  3. Public safety has improved?? Holy crap! What was this town like before I moved here??
