Good morning, everyone, it's 7:15am. It's a cloudy morning with temps in the mid 20s, and today will be about 30 with mostly cloudy conditions. Well, as we all know now, it's March, and that means a lot of things for us. Winter is just about over, technically, and the weather should start turning a least a little nicer and warmer this month. We also turn our clocks an hour ahead next weekend, and St. Patrick's Day is later in the month. I also go on spring break from college for a week in a few weeks. Unfortunately, though, crime will probably also start to pick up a lot more throughout this month, and with that reality soon to be excepted, I'm going to be changing a couple of things about my monitoring. Beginning in the third week of March, I'm going to be implementing "Zones" of specific areas to cover in the neighborhood. For example, Zone A is going to be 14 from Armitage to North, Damen to the Chicago River. I already have the areas mapped out on Google Maps, and I will be making the map public on March 21st. I will also put what Zones cover which areas on the main page. This was one of the reasons why I had you guys take that poll, to determine what areas I need to be covering more. For the areas that had 0 readers, I will be flyering those areas in attempt to gain readership. Most of those areas are in 14, east of Sacramento and south of Palmer, although I do have a pocket in 17 and one in 25. 14 is broken up into about 12 or 13 of these Zones, while 17 is broken up into two and 25 into three. I welcome any questions, comments or concerns about this new plan on here, at my crime blog email address or on the Facebook page. Lastly, I will be having you guys take another readership poll sometime in June and I will be remapping these Zones according to readership demands by July. Anyway, I'm monitoring 25 today from now until my dinner, and here's crime for today.
