Two loud bangs

Did anybody in the area of Grace and Sacramento hear too loud bangs last night...? I thought they were fireworks but they were very far apart and not quite sounding like fireworks.

speeding west down wellington from elston between elston and california

i live at the corner of elston and wellington. people speed down from elston. why doesn't wellington have speed bumps? i've had rides almost get hit or been almost hit on my bike or walking.

  • Speed bumps are expensive so most side streets and alleys do not have them. Usually neighbors get together and ask the alderman to spend some "menu money" to get them. If you are in the 35th ward, this could be a project for participatory budgeting.

  • Actually, a lot of the streets (almost all north and south streets) in my area have speed bumps, and many of the streets east/west. I will be calling soon about it, though. With Ñ being next to us on Elston, it causes a lot of traffic/drag type cars zooming down the street, especially late at night on weekends. It isn't the noise, but more a concern of safety.

found doggie near Diversey & Kedzie

friend found a shaggy med-size beige dog in Avondale on Fri. male, entact, young. anyone missing a dog?

  • Oosha Cardwell BBQ Dude

    Photos, in this case, are very helpful.

  • Also look for a chip under the skin in the neck area behind the head, or bring him too a vet to get it read. If he's wearing a collar the collar may also have a chip number on it

  • Ev

    You can't look for a chip, you can't see a chip, dog has to be scanned with a universal scanner. Any vet can scan for free. Make sure it's a universal scanner and they scan the whole body if not found in neck as sometimes chips migrate.

Gate vandalized... possible break in?

The gate in my backyard was bent in half. Very mysterious. Anyone else see something like this?

  • Eileen Dimberg Like our neighborhood people are friendly.

    Better make sure house is locked sounds like someone might have been trying to get in and couldn't. Vandalized gate. This is just a guess .

  • Maplewood John Life-long Chicagoan

    It wouldn't surprise me if somebody crushed your gate while stepping on it, jumping from the back of a pickup truck, to get into your yard, looking for a way into your house, or for something metal outside to steal. If that happened at night, maybe a motion-sensing light in...

    It wouldn't surprise me if somebody crushed your gate while stepping on it, jumping from the back of a pickup truck, to get into your yard, looking for a way into your house, or for something metal outside to steal. If that happened at night, maybe a motion-sensing light in back would help discourage scavengers/teenagers.

    Not too long ago, someoned crushed our mailbox off the front wall, after stepping on it while trying to climb up onto our doorway rain canopy, and then into a second floor window, when I was out of town for 36 hours. Luckily, I always keep those front windows double-locked. I now have more lights here set on timers, to make the apt. look occupied, when I'm not here.

RAVENSWOOD— Metropolitan Brewing is getting close to opening the taproom at 5121 N. Ravenswood. They’ve been working on the taproom since 2015.

WRIGLEYVILLE— This new bar in Wrigleyville appears to have no connection with Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo. Nevertheless, there’s a liquor application for an establishment called Rizzo’s Bar & Inn at 3658 N. Clark St. The owner is listed as Vincent Rizzo, so that’s not misleading at all.

DES PLAINES— A suburban bar is remodeling. The owners of Beacon Tap have started work and are urging folks to check out their Facebook page to check out progress at 1374 Lee St.
