Postitive Littering

If you walk down the 2800 block of North Ridgeway, especially by the first three or four houses off the alley, you'll notice that things are a little cleaner. Well, if anybody is wondering who cleaned up, that was me. I woke up at 6:13am. I woke up for a few minutes, then I grabbed a garbage bag, got dressed, put on my sweater and my shoes, then went to work.

I spent about 15 minutes picking up trash on the grass such as tissues, caps of beer bottles, small garbage bags, wrappers of candy, plastic bags (for things like chips and cookies) and cups. That's not all I picked up. I even picked up a pair of sunglasses and a bottle of cream or cool whip.

It felt good to go out there and pick up the trash on the street. It looks cleaner over here now. In fact, I'm so proud of doing this that it makes me want to do this every weekend. I plan on doing this again next weekend, around the same time or a little later.

I encourage all of my readers to do their part and clean up the trash on their streets. It will make you feel good, you'll get a breath of fresh air and you'll hopefully discourage the litters from throwing their trash on the ground.

If you have any comments to share, please by all means do.

My observations on school

Hi, everyone, things were this week.

May 11: On Monday, I returned back to the regular routine. Today was pretty good. I only saw a couple of arguments and people goofing off.

May 12: On Tuesday, before our game, I went to two of my classes. While in school, I only saw a couple incidents of goofing off. In other news, we played a baseball game against Walter Payton High School. We lost that game. Score was 4 (us) to 8 (Walter Payton).

May 13: Wednesday was a regular day. Anyway, I saw people just goofing around. The usual. In other news, a few of my classmates and I went to the Devon market to look for some items.

May 14: On Thursday, my class and I went on a field trip to Lincoln Park Zoo. It was a good trip.

May 15: Friday was also a regular day. Anyhow, there was an assembly today which featured a singer from South Africa. He was important enough to get three TV cameras at our school. I'm told one of the cameras was from WLS-TV 7. Also, there was only just some people goofing off and stuff. Whatever. In other news, my class and I threw a party for a student of ours who is graduating from the school and the program. It was a little emotional, to me anyway.

What The Codes Mean

I bet most of you, as the readers, have been wondering what a code like "19Paul (which means "other incident with other police service"), or 5Boy (means "Disturbance on the street; nobody found). Well, it's time that you can stop wondering because I have them for all of you.

4 = Disturbance - Noise
5 = Disturbance - Street

7 = Sick Removal
8 = Injured person
9 = Person down
10 = Animal bite
11 = Suspicious person
12 = Calling for help
13 = Lost person found
14 = Alarm
15 = Ambulance
16 = Fire call
17 = Escort
18 = Traffic accident
19 = Other misc. incident

Adam = Not bona fide incident
Boy = No person found
Charles = No such address
David = Offender gone on police arrival
Frank = Peace restored
George = Advised warrant

So, if you can, please copy this onto your computer (in WordPad or NotePad) since this post will disapear in the next 2 to 3 weeks (as my newer posts push the older ones down). Hope everyone knows what the codes mean now.
