LOUD fireworks near Ridgeway/Argyle

Has anyone else heard the loud explosions (sounds like a small bomb) near Ridgeway/Argyle? Anyone know which property it's coming from? I've heard about two per hour since like 7pm. I normally don't care about fireworks but these are really loud and it's now after midnight so I called police.

Trying to keep the parkway nice.

If you see someone is taking care of a parkway with trees, bushes, flowers, nice grass try not to have your dog go there on a regualar basis. There are many parkways not kept up that you could let your dog go on. If you have your kids walking your dog teach them to respect the neighbors efforts on keeping something nice. Also seeing people walking dogs without anything to pick up after their dogs.

  • I have good health. My ground cover in the parkway does not. It's turning brown. Thanks for your consideration.

  • kelly berteau

    Thank you KellyIP! As long as people pick up after their dog & dispose of it, why complain about where.
    Some people need to know how to pick their battles...

Van trolling neighborhood

I just saw the driver of a Los Amigos Heating and Air van (maroon color) harassing and driving slowly next to a girl walking on the sidewalk on Spaulding near North Park University (cross street Carmen). She crossed over to my side of the street and I checked on her. She said he'd been following her for about a half block. She's going to report it to university security. I tried to look up the business but couldn't find anything online or in Yelp for a business by that name.

What to do about 4th of July Fireworks in the hood

I don't want to be a killjoy, but on the fourth (and the 5th and even this past weekend) our neighborhood sounds like a war zone from the fireworks that go late into the night. The next day there is literally a stench hanging in the air from the smoke and debris everywhere. Does anyone call the police? I just read that technically only sparklers and other non-explosive fireworks are legal in Illinois.(http://www.illinoislegalaid.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=home.dsp_content&contentID=8442)

    THX, some find that Illinois regulation absurd and others find it necessary and fair. All US citizens I happen to know in the area dislike the obnoxious noise. The law agrees with them so visitors, foreigners and guests of all kinds could also find it in themselves to agree. I find the noise caused by all those random illegal pyrotechnics beyond annoying. The average citizen doesn't differentiate between some of those and gun shots. It's alarming and stressful considering the situation we are dealing with in the US at the moment. Based on last year's precedent the ones who should be trying to stay off the public radar were the ones who bragged louder. If Darwinism has any validity, things will fall into place eventually. And sorry to say this but the ones I mean are not willing to integrate or assimilate. They have their own agenda with full disregard to our standards of coexistence.

A lot of police on Hamlin between Elston and Irving

Does anyone know what's going on on Hamlin St. between Elston and Irving? Driving by and I see a lot of police driving fast in circles and through alleys around that area.

  • ward greenleaf Smokey and the Bandit, Hooper, Cannonball Run...

    But I'm not....normal

  • Hahaha. Dude I'm 7 hours ahead of you and you're up and going when it's not even noon across the ocean. Definitely not normal in my book :D I guess we have different ways to research. I'm too dinky to defend myself physically so I go for the psychological war, mainly engaging in small talk about all kinds of bs using my accent and their curiosity :D
