Members and friends of Southsiders for Peace, a local, well-respected, anti-war and social justice group, recently wrote to The Beverly Review (Letters to the Editor, Dec. 11) with questions regarding the Heartland Alliance youth detention site located in our neighborhood.

Morgan Park United Methodist Church sincerely appreciates the overwhelming support from the community for our Advent outreach program, Hats (and scarves) for the Homeless II.

As the staff of Heartland Human Care Services, we wish to call out the gross disinformation that was shared in a letter (Letters to the Editor, Dec. 11) by individuals who obviously know nothing about our 130-year-old human-rights organization or the shelters we have operated for 20 years fo…

As the executive director of the 95th Street Business Association and on behalf of the members of the 95th Street Business Association and the vendors from the 95th Street Farmers Market, we offer congratulations to Arlene Gottardo on her retirement from the Chicago Public Library system.

We want to inform your readers that Heartland Alliance is operating a detention center in the Beverly neighborhood for immigrant children who have either been separated from their parents or arrived in the United States on their own.

I was so pleased to read the response from Bill Walsh (Letters, Oct. 23) regarding the disrespect shown by dog owners to the tribute to not only Chicago’s firefighters but also to our monument to 9/11.

For 36 years, the Maple Morgan Park Community Food Pantry has been distributing emergency food on Tuesdays and Fridays of each week, and it also provides annual traditional Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday meals for the thousands of disadvantaged families in the Southwest Chicago communiti…

I want to preface this letter by saying that one of my favorite things to do is meet my best friend on a summer day at Open Outcry Brewing Co. and have a beer, pizza and salad. I also love watching a sunset with a glass of wine.

It incenses me to see dog owners pull up to King Lockhart Park, 10609 S. Western Ave., and open the gate and unleash their dogs to run freely in the park and relieve themselves.

On behalf of the Morgan Park Junior Woman’s Club, I would like to congratulate the Beverly Hills Juniors on their wonderful project, collecting books for the Vanderpoel Humanities Academy library.

The GFWC Beverly Hills Junior Woman’s Club would like to extend a huge thank you to the community for its overwhelming support of our request for book donations to revitalize the school library at Vanderpoel Humanities Academy.

This week is Lifeline Awareness Week, and, as chairman of the non-profit board that helps to administer Lifeline in Illinois, I want to share some information about the program.

I was deeply troubled to see the first daughter and senior advisor to the president, Ivanka Trump, exploit the violence that took place in Chicago recently so as to distract from the mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio.

I went to the office of 19th Ward Ald. Matt O’Shea on Western Avenue the other day, and I asked the two young men in the front office whether the city was making any progress fixing potholes.

In my opinion, the only times that Palos Township Trustee Sharon Brannigan has spoken honestly were the times she posted her numerous Islamophobic and racist Facebook posts prior to this controversy.

As The Beverly Review reported, fliers promoting white supremacy have appeared once again in the 19th Ward. This is becoming a regular occurrence, and we as a community must improve our response.

I work from home now, so I have more freedom than I did previously. With that new freedom, I have the opportunity to ride my bike in the morning through the neighborhood.

For the past week, we have listened to angry politicians and read many critical articles in the newspapers blasting President Trump for his wish to have a military salute and parade in Washington, D.C.

A whirlwind end to a historic legislative session has resulted in two important pieces of good news for Illinois trucking companies: a new capital bill to fix our infrastructure and the end of a misguided truck fee that only added to the work we must do to address our roads and bridges.
