Helicopters at Kimball/Lawrence?

Hi all...

I heard helicopters flying pretty low this morning around 5:30 am. Sounded like they were searching for someone, and perhaps found them near North Park University (based on my faulty hearing only). Anyone know what was going on?

    ah, ok...thanks!

    A friend of a friend posted this in a different discussion forum about the helicopters:

    "A banger ran from the police, ditched his jeep in front of my house, and jumped in the river. Police running around through the neighbor's yard across the street (which borders the river) and on the bridge with flashlights and rope, fire trucks, helicopters...it was quite a show outside my window this morning. I first heard something going on at 4:50am."

Do "No Soliciting" signs really work?

Hi neighbors. Tonight a "clipboard person" continuously knocked on our front door at 8:30 pm for over 5 minutes while I was upstairs in the shower. My 2 children were in the front room reading and my oldest peeked out the window thinking it was a neighbor (we're a very friendly block.) Thankfully she knows enough to never open the door when her father and I aren't in the room, but after the person realized people were home he persisted...

Hi neighbors. Tonight a "clipboard person" continuously knocked on our front door at 8:30 pm for over 5 minutes while I was upstairs in the shower. My 2 children were in the front room reading and my oldest peeked out the window thinking it was a neighbor (we're a very friendly block.) Thankfully she knows enough to never open the door when her father and I aren't in the room, but after the person realized people were home he persisted in knocking and ringing and my younger child, especially, became very frightened. I phoned my neighbor who said the guy was asking for signatures for something or other. Seemed legit. But 8:30 on a Monday night? I don't want to invest in a Ring doorbell or more security equipment as we will be moving out of state sooner rather than later, but will a small "No Soliciting" sticker help, do you think? We get a TON of clipboard people on this block.

Shooting

I just moved to the neighborhood on Friday and witnessed my first shooting tonight while walking my dog near Jensen park. Is this common?? I'm freaked out because I was only a few feet away from 3 bullets. I really hope it was just an isolated incident.

  • There were 2 cars on the northeast corner of the park and 2 guys ran right passed me and my dog right after we heard the shots. I was so shaken up I didn't have time to process what the cars and the guys looked like. All I was focused on was getting us to safety right away.

  • PortageRules Love Portage Park!

    I wish the city would put up neighborhood watch photos/sketches and descriptions of the all these azz wholes on light polls like they use to.
