Bulletin: Some Important News

Hello, everyone. I have some news I need to share with all of you, and it's not good, unfortunately. This is not about my family's financial situation, but it is still important. I just wanted to let you all know that I may not blog for a few days, or perhaps maybe even a week or two. My mother is really sick with something (we're not sure what it is) and she was taken to the hospital this evening by ambulance. I am waiting to hear about her condition and will be going to the hospital if she is admitted, and will stay with her.

I just wanted to let you all know that in case you might be looking for posts but don't see them. Also, to the ANA -- I am going to try my very best, and I think most likely I will, to show up to the positive loitering event on Thursday at Diversey and Ridgeway. But family comes first, especially when it's your mother.

Please keep my mother in your thoughts and prayers. I pray for all of you and our neighborhoods each and everyday. I will see all of you soon.

Thank you,
Tim (AKA Timmy) Granzow
Avondale/Logan Square Crime Blotter

Update, 4/29/13: I want to thank everyone for their concern, thoughts and prayers. My mother was released from the hospital Thursday evening and she is doing a lot better than before. She has no major health issues, thankfully. She had severe anemia, which was the main reason into her hospitalization, but that has been treated and she now has medicine that will continue to improve her health. Most of all, our relationship has gotten so much better and it was beautiful to see my family all come together in this time. I am thankful for life, and going through this has taught me to be thankful at all times because life is way too short to be mad or upset constantly. I want to thank all of you again for your support and encouragement. Without you guys, and my church family, I wouldn't have gotten through this.

Heard the police blew off the street roll call at Ridgeway and Diversey. Saw a bunch of them hiding at the gas station reading papers and drinking coffee.

Hope all is well Tim. I will keep you and your family in my prayers. Thank you for all your hard work.

From what I saw at the street corner roll call were the dregs of the 25th district. Those are guys who haven't got a phone call to get them out of that dump of a district. I hope that in the re-map your area becomes part of 014.

Go luck to you and your mom.

They blew it off or they were there? Make up your mind Shane McQue. You can't even lie good.

They only had "3" cops show up at the role call. 3 out of 35? Sounds like most blew it off.

Any news about the police copter over the 2900 block of Ridgeway a few days ago looking for a shooter. They get him? Anyone get shot?

Police Copter was sold to the UIC police. The city of Chicago could not afford to operate any longer. Also on the block is the Police Marine unit.
