Windows on 6525 Clark?

Walked by this morning and it looks (fingers crossed) like the cinder-blocked windows will get actual windows. Anyone know what is going in there?

    they produced an idiot - You evidently had a free ride on the taxpayers dime and didn't pay the taxes you are wanting Loyola to pay

    something is wrong with you. Frankly I do not believe for a minute you are a college graduate - your hatred for Colleges is too telling. Now get off this community blog - you are disturbing intelligent people.

    Actually as it was likely subsidized by suburban students who were in my computer science program because their wealthy parents thought it was a good idea. Graduated highest honors / summa cum laude too. Thanks for playing troll we need you!

Recommendations for Cat Dental Exam

Hi,

My adult cat has a loose grey tooth that will likely need to be x-rayed and possibly extracted under anesthesia. I called my regular vet and she said that they don't have the necessary equipment. Does anyone know of a good place I can go to that's either in Edgewater or a nearby neighborhood?

Thank you!

  • hazelg Longtime Edgewater resident

    I dropped her off this morning for more tooth extractions, will advise what happened when I pick her up this evening.

  • Halezg,
    Poor baby, I hope she feels okay soon!

Rogers Park Target Gets $1.25 Million From CHA Despite Protests

ROGERS PARK — Tensions erupted Downtown at a CHA board meeting Tuesday in which officials approved $1.25 million in funds for an apartment complex and mini-Target store slated for Sheridan Road and Devon Avenue in Rogers Park. 

Called the "Concord at Sheridan," the development is slated for a plot of land just north of the Caroline Hedger Apartments at 6400 N. Sheridan Road that is now a parking lot and community center used by the seniors.

The funds go toward a "public-private partnership" between the CHA and 1300 W.

  • Why does the Rogers Park Chamber of Commerce oppose additional commerce? Is there some kind of undisclosed conflict of interest that has a chamber of commerce protesting new commercial development? Something doesn't add up.

  • Helen NoH North of Howard for 55 + years

    My guess is that it's because Target can't be bamboozled into joining the phony local chamber of commence.

  • Wazzup not available

    Good always wins over NIMBY evil. A small Target is not horrible. More housing for mixed income folks is definitely a win win for all. The CHA correctly remembered is mandate - provide mixed income housing while finding a way for it to self subsidized itself. What Target contributes to this housing complex means that amount won't come from taxpayers - hence my comment "a win win for all".

Boyfriend robbed - phone stolen in alley between Balmoral and Berwyn

Be careful Edgewater friends -- my boyfriend was just robbed by three taller African American men. They took his phone, but didn't hurt him. This happened in one of the alleys between Balmoral and Berwyn (he is shaken up and took a new route home and couldn't remember which alley. It was close to Broadway. So mad right now, but so blessed that he did not get harmed.

  • One more question, Daniel, was this alley east or west of Broadway?

  • George F in Ravenswood displaced New Yorker

    RodgersEdge nailed it. If you see something or someone who looks or acts suspiciously to you, call 911. Never tell anyone that you're going to call, so that they are still there when the CPD arrives. BTW, calling the alderman isn't going to help. Call the CAPS office for advice. They generally warn the public about robbery patterns in their districts.
