Now that I've dropped by the new Mariano's, it occurs to me -- Doesn't it seem logical that L.A. Fitness would be on the 2nd floor, and Mariano's on the 1st?
So much for grabbing quick produce before getting on the train...
Witnessed a police car traveling about 50 mph west on thorndale near glenwood, then slow grid search of neighborhood.

Hi, does anyone have a reasonably priced landscaper they could recommend? I'm also looking for a painter. Any ideas are greatly appreciated!

Does anyone know who is the person who leaves piles of food in random places near Damen and Cornelia? It has been happening for years now. We call this person the Food Ninja because we have never seen who does it. It is really annoying because every time we walk our dog he tries to eat it. Not to mention that the food will attract rats. We have even found food on the steps to our place! One time there was a dinner role buried in our flower pot! Whoever this is please stop!!!!
I found a set of keys on Berteau, just west of Southport. Respond for more information.

It is unbelievable to me that a dog owner/s would not clean up after their dog. I have my nephew at Park West Park and there are literally dozens of piles of dog junk everywhere! Right where children play! Who does that? Seriously?! Please keep an eye out and take pictures of dog owners who do not pick up after their dog. I would love to post a picture of the culprit.

Lakeview will be closed between Wrightwood and Deming and Stockton will be closed between Fullerton and Cannon Drive sporadically between 9:00 a.m. and 11:00a.m. tomorrow, Saturday, March 22. There are no parking signs up for large parts of these streets between 8:00a.m. and 12:00p.m. on March 22.
A helicopter will be lifting a cooling tower onto the north part of the 43rd floor roof at 2626 N. Lakeview. You can PROBABLY watch from around Diversey and Stockton if you're interested.
Anyone in West Ridge know the updated status of the Richmond St. water main project? The last communication we received said they planned to start the first week in March. I emailed Ald. Oconnor, but no response. As the project doesn't allow people to park on Richmond during the day, this situation will only become worse once street cleaning begins again.

Around 2:30 pm today, we heard a loud boom and the electricity went out. The 2100 block of Belle Plaine, but I'm not sure how many homes are affected. It's been reported to ComEd. Anyone else affected?

Does anyone know what happened at the corner of Irving & Sheridan tonight? There have been a lot of sirens in the neighborhood but nothing in the news yet.

Does anybody know what the story is on the roadwork on Wrightwood between Clark and Halstead? They keep digging it up, paving it and then digging up again. I feel like they must be on about the 6 round of this.

Did I miss a memo that Feb. 24 is some holiday and there's no mail delivery? We still have no mail and it's 10:15pm--probably won't come at all. I know USPS here in Chicago is notoriously bad, but it's been particularly so this winter. During the sub-zero temp days we never got mail, which I understand, but not sure what today's excuse is.
I am sure I closed my garage when I left this morning - I popped back home a few hours later and it was half open but nothing is missing. Anyone else notice anything suspicious with garages in the area? 1700-1800 block of Albany. Thanks.
