Cars parked near the crosswalk.

7900 s Hamlin. Southeast corner. Cars continually park near the corner all the way to the crosswalk. Turning right off Hamilin is very risky. Basically have to pull into incoming traffic just to see if its "clear". Tired of this. Sign and tickets would be nice.

  • Northeast Corner. Sorry

  • This was happening by me, I was told by my Alderman's office to call 911. I felt silly being it's not an emergency but did so, yes it took awhile since it was low priory but they dud come calked again a week later again. But hasn't happened in awhile since

Lost dog by 82nd pl/ Kedvale

Very friendly lost dog by 82nd pl / Kedvale. It looks like a German...

  • Was this a young dog (not a puppy, but not full grown yet)? I'd bet this is the same one that someone found at 83rd & Pulaski. If the owner is reading this, the dog that was found is an escape artist! He got away, but they got him back....

    Was this a young dog (not a puppy, but not full grown yet)? I'd bet this is the same one that someone found at 83rd & Pulaski. If the owner is reading this, the dog that was found is an escape artist! He got away, but they got him back. They brought him to a house in Mt Greenwood to hold onto until his family could be found. He also got away from them - jumped a 5 ft fence. Someone else found him at 114th & Millard and was holding him, but he jumped their 6 ft fence. Unfotunately, unless someone found him since late last night (7/24), he was last seen near 95th & Kedzie. There are a number of people aware and looking for him though.
