Many City of Chicago residents love their trees in front of their home. Not long ago, a leak was in the parkway of their home and a Investigator crew came out in the middle of the night to check the cause. When the homeowner came out side, they felt like the crew was rude and abrupt to them. Them were given a paper with a notice the tree would be removed. The homeowners were very upset and contacted Larry Yellen of Fox News. Not long after, (Sunday February 28, 2016) Patrick McDonough, A State of Illinois Plumbing Inspector, was requested to investigate the situation. McDonough said the Shut off valve in the parkway was not even exposed so how could the city make a determination. The home owner and the neighbor pumped down the water and retrieved a metal detector.
George hunted down the B-Box, exposed it, and found the top was never removed. McDonough suggested the City should send some laborers from the Central District that know what side of the shovel to use. Since the work was in sand, it could be easily accomplished with-out destroying the tree. The lead pipe from the street could be re-routed from behind the tree and reconnected. There were no iron risers inside the meter vault. But, the North District is run by politicians.
On Monday, February 29, 2016, Paul (Bunyan) Hansen told the homeowner he wanted the tree chopped down. Paul Hansen from the 7200 block of West Olive should have known how important trees are to the quality of life in Chicago. Paul Hansen, is the son of 44th ward Alderman Bernie Hansen, so he got the “head” spot in the North District Water Department despite not having any training in the Plumbing Industry. Paul is best known for having a DUI and then a promotion. Alderman Tunney told me he pushed for Paul’s promotion.
There are options when you have skills and common sense. But that is not always the case when it comes to Department of Water Management employees.
Most folks that want the top of the line firearm and conceal carry training in Chicago, want a common sense instructor with the right temperament and experience. Some people would be surprised that women enjoy shooting at the range and want protection at home. We hope you never need to remove your weapon except at the range, but if you do, you will need an instructor to insure you make the right move to protect you and your family. A good instructor makes sure you understand the seriousness of gun protection. I am recommending Michael Pagliaro-Head Chief Firearms Instructor Current Resident Firearms Instructor for U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Certified Armorer, Field Training Officer, Certified State of Illinois Concealed Carry Instructor, NRA Certified Instructor, and NRA Member. Michael has over 30 years of law enforcement experience, with the Cook County Sheriff Department, U.S. Department of Justice, and Homeland Security.
Make sure you have someone to not only train you how to use a gun, but how not to use a gun. Safety First. Michael has taken the time to train City of Chicago employees and provide special classes for those with specific needs. Michael is also going to be involved with CHICAGO GUN STORE as an expert.
