Thoughts and prayers to the Eddinger Family --- many good memories of the greenhouses on Chamberlain.

The roads in this area form a perfect racing loop --- off of Randolph, down Chauncey, up Chamberlain to Oakcliff and out on Bartholomew. The cars race by my house on Bartholomew day and night. Not only that - the light at the end of Bartholomew doesn't mean anything to them - they run it all the time. They will even go around you if you are sitting at the light waiting for it to turn. Something needs to be done.
