Hey it's Autumn and it's Gloomy Out Most Days so Take Your Meds!

I figure I'll post this now because it just needs to be said. If I'd have said it sooner maybe we wouldn't have to live in fear of summoned meteors and what not. Be kind to your neighbors! It's gonna be a long winter. Who wants some comics?

  • I'm OK with a "friendly reminder". It is advertising, but it is left up. Being let off with a warning is way less hostile than some other possible responses.
    This appears to be a genuine startup in the area (Lincolnwood). Good luck to them.

Gas fireplace repair

Pilot light is working on my gas fireplace but ventless logs won't ignite. Anyone know a person/place that comes out for this type of repair? Yelp doesn't have much. Thanks.

  • Betsy is right on the money. I experienced the same problem last year, and I wish I had known that I could have cleaned out the pipes myself. I had American Heritage do it, after several other companies either declined to service my fireplace model (the company went out of business a few years ago) or proved to be incompetent.

    Was ALLtypes Fireplace - they install and service my gas logs - Alltypes was pretty knowledgeable - I assume this company that bought Alltypes are continuing the tradition.

Unusual activity on our property. Near wolcott and greenleaf

last night 5:45 I pulled into our driveway and saw a Black Male, 6' medium build, athletic wearing a grey hoodie and dark jeans with a black backpack and a Black Female about 5'10 slender wearing a Pink jacket and Pink backpack and jeans near our back basement door. Not sure what they were doing but they fled out of our property out the front gate. Went west on greenleaf and north on wolcott.

20th & 24th District Police Blotter, by Mark Schipper

The victim, 28, said he was on the sidewalk on the 5400 block of N. Sheridan Rd. talking on his cell-phone when he was robbed. A man had approached, pointed a gun at his face and ordered him into the alley, he said.

Officers arrested two 17-year-olds for a beating and robbery that occurred Oct. 9 on the 1400 block of W. Fargo Ave.

Beat officers monitoring the radio heard the flash message detailing the robbery and stopped two men matching the descriptions in an alley off the 1400 block of W. Jarvis Ave. 

The woman had been with her daughter on the 2600 block of W. Granville Ave. when she was attacked. Her daughter said a black male in his late teens or early-20s had checked her mother to the ground while she crossed the street near Talman Ave.

A 53-year-old woman walking home from work was punched in the eye Oct. 15 on the 5200 block of N. Kenmore Ave. and robbed. 

Two men knocked a 55-year-old woman to the ground near 1200 W. Winnemac Ave. in Uptown before robbing her the morning of Oct. 15.

Officers arrested a known gang member Oct. 17 in Rogers Park for allegedly firing into a vehicle on the 1600 block of W. Juneway Terrace just over a week earlier.  

Stevon Browner, 20, was taken into custody on the 1600 block of W. Howard St. and charged with aggravated battery and discharge of a firearm, police said.

  • Helen North of Howard for 50 + years

    Mama, there are actual printed copies of News-Star (and probably Inside-Booster too). It's rarely worth looking through. It's the sad remains of what once was a good local newspaper, published in a building that stood where the Peterson Garden Project installed the gardens on Howard this year.

Found Pre paid card

Hi Everyone,

Found a pre-paid Visa card on Winthrop just south of Hollywood this morning, 10/22.

Hopefully it is a card that was used up and carelessly tossed on the ground. (I could not get in touch with customer service via the number on the back, as I obviously don't have the appropriate pin number).

Was going to shred it, but in the off chance it has someone's living expenses on it, wanted to check here first.

So if it is yours, email with the last 4 digits and I'll get it back to you.

2:30 AM on 10/13

I was woken up at 2:30 in the morning on Monday 10/13 to the sound of a women screaming for help. I live on a high floor in a high rise and sadly was not able to do anything. It sounded like she was near Berwyn and Kenmore area. I did see several cops flood the area a few minutes later. Does anyone know what happened?

  • So I just saw this post in the crime reports, I wonder if this is what I heard:

    Robbery: Strongarm: no weapon / Sidewalk
    5200 block N. Kenmore Ave. October 13, 2014 @ 2:30 a.m.

  • Ricky Coogin North Andersonville

    I wish there were more details about these crimes.
