    Dyson's Engineering Pipeline Runs Straight Through Amundsen High School
    LINCOLN SQUARE - Inventor James Dyson found inspiration in a glitchy vacuum cleaner. For today's teens, it's their messy backpacks. In the same way that Dyson channeled his frustration into the creation of a revolutionary bag-less vacuum, students from Amundsen High School are doing what engineers do: identifying a problem and designing a solution.

Lincoln Square Coyote Problem Traced To People Feeding Them

Winnemac Park, 5100 N. Leavitt St., abuts the campuses of Amundsen High School and Chappell Elementary, and is popular with dog walkers.

    Lincoln Square Coyote Problem Traced To People Feeding Them
    LINCOLN SQUARE - The first rule of coexisting with coyotes is "don't feed the coyotes." Repeat: Don't feed the coyotes. Animal Care and Control was dispatched to Winnemac Park over the weekend and trapped a pair of the animals after 311 received several calls from people who reported being menaced by the critters, said Ald.

  • This attitude of " They don't bother us, we don't bother them and let them do as they please", is exactly the attitude, which instead of nipping the problem in the bud, Instead, Snowballs into a bigger problem at a later date. The similar attitude is translated into, when people don't step in and prefer to look the other way when there is a crime taking place or somebody is being harassed on a street or on public transport.It has indeed become a sad state of affairs.

    So not bothering with the coyotes is akin to ignoring a crime taking place??

    I realize everyone's reaction to their interaction with an Alderman can be colored by the decision that the Alderman makes. I found Schulter arrogant and sneaky. While I haven't agreed with all of Pawar's decisions, I've found that when you have sound arguments and suggest workable alternatives, he gives serious consideration to them.
    That being said, when the developers of the Sears store on Lawrence wanted to put in a Binny's as a major tenant, Pawar said that since the neighborhood was split on the issue, and no majority in favor, he would not push for the necessary waiver. If the the arguments on here against the proposed buildings are the majority opinion of the neighborhood, and not just being NIMBY, perhaps, that should be pointed out.

  • I live very close and am excited to see a new building with commercial space. Very much in support.

  • Andy P., Budlong Woods life-long Lincoln Square resident

    We are at Rascher and Virginia. The houses on the Northeast block are besieged by cats!!! A neighbor is feeding them and under her the porch there are kittens all the time. I am considering reporting this neighbor for animal hoarding, as well.
    I cannot trap cats and bring them to a shelter. Any organization can help with that?

  • Thanks, Andy. You don't have to trap them. Tree House and Paws have feral cat programs and will do the work if you contact them and describe the situation. I'm happy to help contact them too if you want me to. I'm in the neighborhood and am too big a cat lover for this to become a bigger problem (for you or for them). I'm motivated! Sorry this has been a nuisance for you. Have you spoken with the neighbor at all?
