A while back I read that the old Mena Travel building on Milwaukee Ave. has landmark status because it is a rare example of "balloon framing." Wow, I thought - that is kind of cool, but who will ever see the framing of the building - it's usually all covered up. Well it's being reno'd now and is down to the studs. So I stared at it yesterday, and help me out. What is "balloon framing"? -I expected to see something like an Amish barn structure???
Was wondering if anyone near Damen & Walton has an extension ladder I could use for a few hours? Needing to clean some second story windows.
Anyone know what was going on around the 6 corners early this morning around 430 am. There were men screaming at each other for about half an hour. Sounded like a brawl.

Does anyone know of a reasonable exterminator company?

At 8:15am I saw a brown dog(maybe a boxer?) in a red harness running east on the north sidewalk along Augusta, just west of noble. I didn't see a walker anywhere.
I found a dark grey woven leather purse on Schiller St. this morning (Sunday). Missing most of interior contents, but purse is in great shape. If you would like it back respond to post and we can figure out the return.
