Witnesses: Rapper’s car set on fire in Rogers Park

“We heard this pop, then we looked up and saw this explosion,” said Don Gordon, who was gardening at the time with his family in the 1200 block of West Lunt Avenue. “These flames were shooting outside of the window of the car; it was quite unnerving.”

Protest at McDonald's on Clark St

Just passed a protest at the Pratt/Clark McD's. Around 30 people holding up banners that appear to written in Hindi. Did a quick web search and found there are some global protests over McD opening stores at holy sites to Hindu's. I wonder who is selling/renting the land to them. That's who should also be in hot water.

  • Need for a Change 20 years in Rogers Park

    I saw the gathering as I drove home from work. The group looked very well dressed in business attire. I wasn't sure if it was a "Positive Loitering" event or something of that nature. If this is a protest group, they are the best dressed protesters I have ever seen!

  • @maria:
    I don't have any details regarding the Bangladesh street naming ceremony - I just heard about it on the scanner, as the police were coordinating their security locations.

    But I am pretty sure that the Indians are not protesting McDonald's

Dog Attack

Hi Neighbors,
I'm a newcomer to this site. It was recommended that I post something on here about what happened to my dog on Saturday night.

I'm trying to identify a dog and it's owner. Does anyone know a pit mix that is a beautiful gold color with a big white spot on it's head (about 70 pounds)? On Saturday night I was walking my dog, Stella (a black and white pointer/pit mix), in the 1100 block of W. Farwell....

Hi Neighbors,
I'm a newcomer to this site. It was recommended that I post something on here about what happened to my dog on Saturday night.

I'm trying to identify a dog and it's owner. Does anyone know a pit mix that is a beautiful gold color with a big white spot on it's head (about 70 pounds)? On Saturday night I was walking my dog, Stella (a black and white pointer/pit mix), in the 1100 block of W. Farwell. A man was walking east toward the park with a golden retriever and another dog, which I described above. I told him his dogs were beautiful and the three dogs were wagging their tails and sniffing each other. The leashes got tangled and the man dropped the leash of the pit mix. That's when the pit mix tore into my dog's shoulder. I was holding her leash and trying to pull her away, but she was (of course) trying to defend herself. The only way the man could stop the dog was by tackling it. We were both shocked and said what a bummer the whole thing was. The man said, "It's my neighbors dog." Then we parted ways.

My dog didn't yelp, so I didn't think any injury would be bad. However, when we got a few houses away, she was limping. I took her straight home and checked her out to find a deep 6 inch gash in her shoulder, and a small gash and a couple of puncture holes. We determined that we had to go to the emergency vet. They kept her overnight, did surgical repair of the damage, and put a drain in her.

Over $700 later, I'm glad to have my dog at home with me. I'd appreciate it if people could pass this information around in the hopes of identifying the man or the pet owner or the person walking the dog. At the very least the owner should know that his dog needs to be leashed at all times.

Thanks for reading.
Joan

  • I heard that the north part of a beach at the end of Foster is for dogs--it has the double dog gates. You have to pay for parking ($2?) in a lot and then walk farther than you might expect. The beach is supposed to be less crowded than Montrose and not as dirty. I haven't been there myself.

  • Sandy R in Edgewater Edgewater resident

    I love the dog beach on the north end of Foster. Just be aware that it is not completely closed in on the west side. If your dogs a runner, I wouldn't recommend it.

    Yes, Lurker. They do get identified at the meetings. I don't know which beat you are in, but I would suggest reaching out to your Beat Facilitator and encouraging more of your neighbors to attend the meetings and do the same. Often the biggest problem is lack of participation and information sharing.

    Because the CAPS meeting structure has changed to individual beats (as opposed to combined beat meetings) there is more of an opportunity to engage on a granular level. In addition, the CAPS meetings are alternating with CPD presence every other month. The meetings without CPD presence will allow neighbors to brainstorm about issues like problem buildings. So, I would encourage you to attend your beat meeting and see if you can't get a group together that would help target problem buildings, follow through with Officer Popelka, and possibly attend legal hearings for potential prosecutions.

  • Dee On Newgard '92

    I should add that e-mail trees and phone trees are encouraged at CAPS meetings. I am in regular contact with my Beat Facilitator for 2432, Pat Kenny, and receive updates from him. I also am in contact with John Warner, the Beat Facilitator for 2431. They have both been very responsive and receptive to implementing new ideas to improving the CAPS program.

    Lurker, I believe your idea has merit, we just need to find the most efficient and expedient way to move it forward.

PARKING!!!

Am I the only one that finds parking in our neighborhood completely aggravating??? From Monday-Friday you have to have your car moved by 7am (6am on some streets) in our whole neighborhood! Where do they expect us to move our cars?!?

  • Isn't the possession of a rubber stamp the mark of virtue and extreme importance in Chicago city politics and administration...rumor has it that it takes twenty years of service for a lackey to get their own rubber stamp.

  • John Versical all around nice guy

    I seem to recall community meetings regarding MorseL and Bullhead Cantina's liquor licenses. In either case, has the existence of both establishments in one form or another not improved the quality of Morse Avenue?

    i forgot the b cuose you dont say it

  • I am sad this is happening, and I hate to say that I have been avoiding Morse in the evenings. We used to frequently go to the restaurants on Morse, but since these shootings have started I don't feel safe taking my child out.

    I love this neighborhood and I hope things start to change.
