Reliable Auto Mechanic?

Good morning neighbors,

Can anymore recommend a mechanic in the area for typical repairs and maintenance? Perhaps a place near Lawrence or Pulaski. Thanks in advance!

  • George F in Ravenswood displaced New Yorker

    Lincoln Park Mechanic at Lawrence and Leavitt. He's honest and the work is always guaranteed.

  • Another thumbs up for Maltos, on Montrose west of Kimball. They are honest, efficient and lovely to work with! We've been using them for a number of years.

    Who's oosha?

  • Joan, Oosha is someone who gave me thumbs down for one of my long diatribes. I don't blame them for hating long diatribes. I hate long diatribes myself, just not mine 'cause our own farts don't smell, do they. It's only other people's farts that smell. Anyway, I was curious...

    Joan, Oosha is someone who gave me thumbs down for one of my long diatribes. I don't blame them for hating long diatribes. I hate long diatribes myself, just not mine 'cause our own farts don't smell, do they. It's only other people's farts that smell. Anyway, I was curious about what part of the diatribe he or she disagreed with since I went on and on about so many things and I don't follow right or left agendas for the sake of allegiance. I tend to disagree with both liberals and conservatives although I tend to favor the left as a more beneficial option for the average citizen. I just don't accept full ideological packages. I focus on specifics regardless of which party supports what. Just wanted to know their views but they probably just hate harangues.

People who run a rigged game recognize a bust out when they see one.

The state reported $99.4 million in Mega Millions sales and $208 million in Powerball sales within the 2016 budget year.

    Powerball, Mega Millions to drop Illinois due to state's budget crisis
    The association that runs the popular Powerball lottery and Mega Millions games will drop Illinois at the end of June without a budget agreement. Concern over the state of Illinois' fiscal condition prompted that decision by the Multi-State Lottery Association, according to internal Illinois Lottery communications.
    http://chicago.suntimes.com
  • Right... $99.4 million in Mega Millions sales and $208 million in Powerball sales in 2016 budget year, and 40% is retained by the state to fund education.
    If no state budget come July 1, 2017, bye-bye Mega Millions & Powerball and the approx $122.9 million/yr for education funding.
    And if they do drop Illinois, it would take years to reinstate the games in Illinois once a state budget is in place.
    Every day, week, month, year without a budget the financial hole deepens and the road to repair lengthens.

Parking Spaces for Rent?

Hey Everyone,

My Fiance and I just moved to Albany Park (Sunnyside and Drake) and parking is a nightmare. It has been taking 20+ minutes on average to find a parking spot every night. I'm looking for 1 or 2 parking spaces for rent that are close to our location.

  • It's really terrible over there, All the illegal spots even get filled. Welcome to the neighborhood and you may definitely want to use your bike for short trips!

  • There would be more parking spaces if cars would be ticketed for no city stickers. On one block example 3400 W Belle Plaine there were 3 cars without Chicago city stickers. On 4000 N Drake there was 3 cars without Chicago city stickers. There's always a truck on the 4000 N Kimball block parked over night without stickers not to mention all the trucks and non passanger vans parked on residential streets that are not suppose to park overnight on them.

  • Joe

    Janu, You don't need a city sticker to park on a street. You need a city sticker if your car is registered in Chicago. Based on your statement, you can't have visitors parking on Chicago streets.

Saw a stray dog with red collar at Elston and belle plaine about 20 min ago.

Looked like a red fox. Skiddish. Would not come to me. Even when my dog was around.

  • Saw this dog yesterday afternoon around Montrose & Avers, heading south, in your direction. Would not come to me either, but apparently a lot of people are trying to catch this dog.
    Post to Nextdoor.com also, if you see him again.
