    Former Riverview Park Worker Builds Miniature Working Model Of 'The Chutes'
    ROSCOE VILLAGE - Once upon a time, the magical kingdom of Riverview enchanted all who passed through its gates. Fifty years after it was razed, the defunct North Side amusement park, which sprawled across nearly 75 acres off Western Avenue, continues to cast a spell over Chicagoans of a certain age, who speak of Riverview with a fondness that borders on reverence.

Beware Dr. Seth Ghantous - Monsters At Chicago Emergency Veterinary-Specialty

I am begging you. Please do not EVER take your pet to Chicago Veterinary Emergency & Specialty 3123 N. Clybourn. They are truly the definition of monsters. 

  • Penelope C Activist of all kinds.

    I actually think it's great. Sounds like they tried to post feedback/ review via Yelp and couldn't so they used their own site. Resourceful. Good for them.

  • Seth Ghantous saved my dog's life. Yes, like most EMERGENCY DOCS, he is a no BS guy and is very direct. I am sorry that you lost your pet and that is heartbreaking. However, I will be forever grateful to Dr. Ghantous. Vets, like everyone else, are under significant stress....

    Seth Ghantous saved my dog's life. Yes, like most EMERGENCY DOCS, he is a no BS guy and is very direct. I am sorry that you lost your pet and that is heartbreaking. However, I will be forever grateful to Dr. Ghantous. Vets, like everyone else, are under significant stress. They cannot rely on their "patients" telling them what the problem is. They have to make snap decisions. In many cases, they are smarter than "people doctors." If Seth was short with you, you must ask yourself what rose might be on his mind......perhaps his adorable daughter that has had medical issues far beyond what anyone could ever imagine. Seth is #1 in my book. He is a caring and loving father, husband and an outstanding veterinarian. Just my 2-cents.

Purse Stolen from 90 Miles on Clybourn, pictures of perps...

Hi, My purse was stolen from 90 Miles on May 2, and their tech helped me out by giving me video of the thieves arriving and leaving the restaurant. I pulled the attached pictures off the video. We are offering a reward to anyone helping identify these people and/or recover my stuff, which includes notebooks, receipts, my father's college pins that were in my wallet, prayer cards, sunglasses, checkbook, etc. They also stole my brand new purse and $220 that I had just withdrawn from the bank. Luckily, I had my phone in my pocket. Please message me or go to 90 Miles with any information. Thanks in advance for your help.

  • Christine a neighbor

    No updates... I am planning to go to Lane Tech and Roberto Clemente as someone suggested. One of the members of a Facebook group I posted on (a teacher at Clemente) thought she saw a girl with my purse in the hallway, but it turned out to be a Michael Kors purse. Good news is that they haven't tried to use my checks and of course we cancelled the credit cards. Thanks everyone for your concern and support. That actually makes this a little less difficult.
