Message from the
Skyline Village Chicago Board
From the President
"A healthy community is one in which the elderly protect, care for, love and assist the younger ones to provide continuity and hope." Maggie Kuhn
On September 28th the Friday Forum will focus our attention on what it takes to make our community livable for all ages. Intergenerational programs and opportunities to share our lives and wisdom with people of all ages is a start, but it is so much more than that. Our speaker Brad Winick, urban planner, primary author of "Planning Aging-Supportive Communities", and a member of the Mayor's Commission on Age Friendly Chicago and the Chicago Aging Collaborative will share his ideas and invite our questions about what the Coalition hopes to accomplish. He will invite us to think about what we can do to move our own community forward.
The Chicago Aging Collaborative, representing organizations from across the Chicago region, including Skyline Village Chicago, Chicago Hyde Park Village, Forward Chicago and Off the Pews, recently launched a series of public lectures to introduce people to livable community concepts and to invite conversation. The next public lecture at Rush Medical Center is Thursday, October 4th at 4pm (see calendar and watch for an update for more details). 

Enjoy the rest of the summer, and hope to see you at the Friday Forum, and out and about in our community.

Madison and Michigan
By Judy Karlov
This past summer I enjoyed three short trips. The first, in June, was to Madison, Wisconsin, where my son and daughter-in-law recently moved. They moved because they have become empty nesters and wanted more stimulation than Appleton, Wisconsin, where they lived for 10 years and finished raising their children, could provide. They love living in Madison and I loved the weekend. They have a beautiful mid-century modern home in a wonderful neighborhood adjacent to the entrance to the Madison Arboretum. We dined well at home, compliments of their brand new kitchen and my daughter-in-law, who is an excellent cook, as well as at a wonderful restaurant whose name I have, of course, forgotten. We did lots of walking around town and a bit of boating on the smallest of Madison's five lakes.
My second trip, in July, was to Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lake Shore in northern Michigan. I was the guest of a friend in her beautiful home, whose foundation was grandfathered when this gorgeous area became a national park. She and her husband were able to replace the existing family cottage with a much larger home whose lakeside footprint stayed the same. Although my apartment has lovely sunsets in summer, they really don't compare with the ones you can see there, sitting on an Adirondack chair with glass in hand, oohing and aahing about the magnificent multi-colored vista. I have become very fond of that area, enjoying the book group in Empire, the stores and restaurants in Glen Arbor, and the many attractions in Traverse City. This year we explored a tiny peninsula, parallel to and just west of the larger Leelanau peninsula. It is only 18 miles long and so narrow that as you ride along the main road, sometimes you see water on your left, sometimes on your right.
My third trip, in August, involved both Madison and Michigan - the street and avenue, that is. By late summer my two younger grandchildren, who live in Chicago - much to my delight - were through with all their camps and we could enjoy adventures together. Although they are athletes (figure skating and karate, respectively, and running-bicycling-swimming for both) I am not. So our adventures were in Millennium Park, at the Art Institute, and at the Cultural Center. In the park we picnicked to a wonderful rehearsal of Tchaikovsky, enjoyed a few other concerts, and ate ice cream. At the Art Institute we saw all the current exhibits, particularly enjoying Helen Frankenthaler and Charles White. We also enjoyed jazz in the courtyard. At the Cultural Center we discovered the wonderful daily tour that I highly recommend.
All in all, I had a spectacular summer centered in and around Madison and Michigan.

Parade for the First Annual Block Party at the Art Institute

By Michael and Phyllis Mitzen
Where do you start planning when you have 10 days to visit Spain? We decided to focus on Madrid, which we had missed the first time we were there in 2000, and on Granada, where we had fallen in love with Alhambra.
Madrid is a stunning city, in our eyes rivaling Paris with its parks, palaces, and public art. The Prado is filled with extensive collections that connected us not only to the art and artists, but to the history of Europe.   But we were overwhelmed and spent almost an hour viewing Picasso's Guernica at the Reina Sofia. We could have spent all day there. The Madrid City hop-on hop-off bus was a great way to visit all the essential areas of the city, and is half price for people 65 and over. The same was true for the museums.
After four days in Madrid, we took the bullet train to Granada and spent six days there. We walked up to the Alhambra for an extensive tour of the magnificent palaces, mosques, and gardens, rediscovering the history of the Moslems who created the breathtaking edifices, and the Christians who took it over as they consolidated their power in Europe. We stayed in an AirB&B in the heart of Granada surrounded by cafes and ice cream shops (there was at least one on every block). We went to a Flamenco show in a cave of the Sacromonte section of Granada, where Michael was invited to dance.
We took a day trip from Granada to Cordoba to visit the magnificent Mezquita de Cordoba. Nothing we read prior to our visit could prepare us for its vastness and beauty. After spending hours there we wandered the surrounding streets to find the statue of Maimonides which symbolizes the golden age when Moslems, Christians and Jews lived, studied, and collaborated side by side.
It was hot there in July, but we were delighted to sit in outdoor cafes, occasionally misted by overhead umbrellas as we enjoyed delightful meals - dinners at 10pm surrounded by three and four generation families celebrating life. It was a glorious trip.

Our Favorite Things

Polk Brothers Performance Lawn in Polk Brothers Park at Navy Pier
by Marcia Slater Johnston

When I'm looking to escape the hurly-burly of Big City life on a balmy late summer or early autumn day, I often head over to Navy Pier.
Just before the entrance I veer to the right and stroll past the blue umbrellas outside of Bubba Gump's, sauntering along the lake until I arrive at The Polk Brothers Park Performance Lawn, a surprisingly tranquil urban oasis.
Sometimes I sit at one of the half dozen picnic tables scattered among plantings of prairie grasses and wildflowers, watching monarch butterflies flit soundlessly among the blossoms.  
Other times, I opt to perch on the long wooden ledge at the top of an incline and take in the scene - to the west, the skyline casting shadows across Ogden Slip; to the east, water taxis, tour boats and sailing vessels gliding over the water.
During July and August, the Performance Lawn is a setting for free live music performances. I enjoyed chilling out one hot July Friday evening, listening to cool jazz at sunset courtesy of The Water Colors Music Series and Chicago jazzman Victor Goines and his Quartet.
However, my favorite musical interlude on the Performance Lawn took place one sunny Sunday afternoon, when musicians from the Old Town School of Folk Music strummed banjos and led all of us on the Lawn in a rousing rendition of "Take Me Home, Country Road."


Memoir Writing
By Regan Burke

A recent article in the Chicago Tribune,  A story to tell: Memoir writing unlocks family life and times describes several memoir writing groups around Chicago, including one I've been attending for about four years. I write for author  Beth Finke's memoir writing class held in the South Loop. My writing began as therapy for chronic pain as described in the  book  Mindbody Prescription: Healing the Body, Healing the Pain by Dr. John Sarno. I continue to write and attend class because it works for pain relief and I love the stories of fellow classmates. As a result of attending Beth's classes I've been able to compile my stories into a full length memoir to be delivered to the publisher at the end of September.

Siren Noise Limitation Bill Becomes Law
Way to go Kathlyn Maguire!

Alderman Brian Hopkins announced that HB5632, a bill to reduce the use of loud sirens on ambulance and rescue vehicles, has become law. Municipal emergency vehicles shall operate a siren only when it is reasonably necessary to warn pedestrians and other drivers of the approach, while responding to an emergency call or transporting a patient who presents a need for immediate medical intervention that is beyond the capabilities of the emergency responders using the available supplies and equipment."  This new law is a good start to curbing the excessively loud siren noise in our community; however, efforts continue to advocate for further decibel reductions of emergency sirens.

Materials from Anna Rapaport's presentation at the July Friday Forum

Insights into the Lives of Individuals Aged 85 and Over
 By Anna M. Rappaport
The Society of Actuaries(S)OA) has conducted a series of studies and published some papers providing insights into the situation later in life, generally age 85 and over. All of this work can be downloaded from the SOA website.  The work is summarized in a presentation prepared in July 2018.

A consolidated report on this work is expected later in 2018.
Major findings include:
  • Family is a primary source of help when help is needed, but usually such help is not planned for.
  • A majority of the respondents aged 85 and over need some sort of help.
  • Family is the predominant source of help with going places and shopping, but paid help is much more common when people need help with the activities of daily living.
  • The retirees generally seem satisfied and relatively confident about their financial future.
  • Cognitive change can change everything.
  • Few of the people planned for a major long-term care event, and few have long-term care insurance. They tend to deal with it when it happens.
  • Few people who did not use advisors before hire them at these ages.
The report on preliminary phase of the work is at:
Rappaport, Anna M. and Sally Hass, Management of Post-Retirement Finances for the Age 85 and Over Population: Some Advice and Lessons from Personal Experience, SOA Pension Section News, February 2017
Detailed results of in-depth interviews and two surveys can be found at:
Post-Retirement Experiences of Individuals 85+ Years Old, 2018; Report on 2017 surveys of individuals 85+ and adult children of 85+;
Post-Retirement Experiences of Individuals 85+ Years Old , Society of Actuaries, 2017: Report on In-Depth Interviews;
Note that the participants in the special surveys and interviews are resource limited, with an asset limit of $400,000.
Three related papers provide additional information of interest on this topic:
  • Improving Retirement by Integrating Family, Friends, Housing and Support: Lessons Learned from Personal Experience
  • The 65 Plus Age Wave and the Caregiving Conundrum: The Often Forgotten Piece of the Long-Term Care Puzzle

Public Safety Note

You may have seen one of these broken sign post bases around the neighborhood, there are several. Recently Craig Kaiser of the Streeterville Neighborhood Association received two reports of people tripping on them and has volunteered to help. There is no code for these in the 311 system so it takes a little more effort to get them removed. If a number of these are identified,  CDOT will have more reason to send someone out to do the repairs than if we just report one post.

Mind your feet and keep an eye out for tripping hazards like these.  If you see them, you can report on the SeeClickFix app.  

You can also send the exact location, street number and any other information like the name of the nearest business and Craig will create a list and work with 311 to get them repaired.

Craig's email address is

This one is in front of 220 E. Illinois in front of the Optima Signature Apartment Building on the east edge of the parking cutout.

This hazard is located on the South side of the 600 LSD building near the South East Corner

Streeterville Neighborhood Walks

The Paula Cooper Gallery has graciously extended their loan of the "Architect's Handkerchief" for another year.
"Handkerchief" was created by artists Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen.

If you have not seen this, take a walk along Lakeshore Drive to the 860 Building. Viewing the four Mies van der Rohe buildings alone is worth the trip but check out this piece of Streeterville's public art collection. This is a residential building so please respect their property and stay on the sidewalk.

The piece offers a strong contextual link to Mies van der Rohe by paying homage to him and his trademark handkerchief. The stunning contrast of the black linear buildings and the pristine white, flowing curves of the piece evoke comparisons to the contrasts between the Flamingo and Mies's Federal Plaza but without the tension. Well worth the visit.

Also notice, the Mies-influenced Hancock stands guard in the background.

The art was installed thanks to the Chicago Park District, the Paula Cooper Gallery and the folks at 860/880 in Sept. 2017. If you want to learn more about this piece of art and how we are working to bring more Public Art to Streeterville, write us, Streeterville Public Art Project at

Safety Tips Using Pool Noodles

  • Tired of stubbing your toes on your bed frame?  Cover the legs with cut pool noodles. 
  • Spare your back! Use a pool noodle to funnel water to a bucket
  • Child proof furniture when grandchildren visit. Fit slices of pool noodle over sharp edges to protect toddlers
  • A pool noodle under the mattress pad or fitted sheet makes a great impromptu bedrail for young grandchildren. Anchor with duct tape if necessary.

The Genetics of Cancer
Monday, September 24
11:30am -12:30pm 
Led by Richard Carthew
Register online here 

In 1971, President Nixon declared a War on Cancer. In the 46 years since, we have learned more about the causes and progressions of the disease than in the preceding 3,000 years. With the recently announced Cancer Moonshot, cancer research is back in the spotlight. How does genetics play a role and how have a collection of small, lowly creatures been instrumental in helping scientist understand the genetic origins of cancer? Prof. Carthew has designed this lecture for lay audiences whose members are interested in learning more about advances in genetics without having an academic background in the field. This talk is of special relevance to members of the fall study groups: The Gene(CH), and The Gene Blueprint (EV).

Richard Carthew is Professor of Molecular Bioscience and Owen L Coon Professor in Molecular Biology at Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences at Northwestern University. He leads a research group at Northwestern that studies how complex cell and tissue behaviors are elicited within the context of the organism. Collaborating with theorists in applied mathematics, physics, and engineering, Richard's group applies systematic and quantitative approaches to biological problems.

These events were intended to stimulate the U.S. economy and at the same time provide a respite from the bleakness of the Depression and offer hope for a brighter tomorrow.  This lecture will provide an overview of these six fairs, describe a sampling of their most significant buildings and attractions, and explain some of what remains from these fairs today.

Old age is not a disease - it is strength and survivorship, triumph over all kinds of vicissitudes and disappointments, trials and illnesses.

                    founder of the Gray Panthers

Leave safety behind. Put your body on the line. Stand before the people you fear and speak your mind - even if your voice shakes. When you least expect it, someone may actually listen to what you have to say. Well-aimed slingshots can topple giants.

Statue Stories
Statue Stories Chicago is a city-wide public arts initiative that brings 30 of Chicago's statues to life. Chicago's most celebrated writers, actors and comedians were commissioned to create monologues for some of the city's famous statues. Pass a talking statue, look for the nearby sign, and use your smartphone to scan the sign's QR Code or type the text in your web browser, and presto-you get a call back from John C. Reilly as Abraham Lincoln, Shonda Rhymes as Miró's Chicago or Steve Carell as a man clutching a giant fish by the Shedd Aquarium. Each has a story to tell. Together they tell Chicago's story.
