  • Well homeless people are by the blue line on Irving Park. And not having regular access to bathing facilities does tend to lead to body odor.

    Count your blessings if you are not in that situation.

  • Some of the homeless/panhandlers at Jefferson Park have been offered food
    which they threw in the garbage after the person who gave them the food left.
    They want money to buy booze, etc. It is my understanding some of them have
    plenty of money and still panhandle. They don't want to go to shelters because they
    don't want to obey the rules. It's getting serious and they are not supposed to hang
    around the terminal. Signs are clearly marked No loitering.

Lincoln Towing Hauls Author's Car Away From Her Own Book Launch Party

Cheryl Reed, a former Chicago journalist who is now a professor at Syracuse University in New York, celebrated the launch of her debut novel, "Poison Girls," at Women and Children First bookstore, 5233 N. Clark St., on Sept. 15 with a reading and a reception.

    Lincoln Towing Hauls Author's Car Away From Her Own Book Launch Party
    ANDERSONVILLE - As state regulators continue to weigh whether to yank Lincoln Towing Service's license - claiming the firm frequently moved cars without authorization - a Chicago author said the notorious company grabbed her car while she celebrated the publication of her book.
    https://www.dnainfo.com

  • Harley's correct....LT's and RSI's so-called spotters look for cars regardless of whether the car's owner went into the business that owns the lot or not...then when the driver is not at the car, it's towed.

  • LT has also been know to post their signs in lots that don't even contract with them...and then towing cars parked there. They're vile.
