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.

  • Chica-go Livin' and lovin' in Edgewater Glen

    JJ, Did you end up working with any of these recos? I need help with my ventless, too.
    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.

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.

    I wish there were more details about these crimes.

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. 

This article has 7 other Chicago locations (Show)

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.

Whole Foods on Broadway

Hello!

I see that they are making great progress at the Whole Foods on Broadway and Glenlake, they have the whole store gutted.

Does anyone one know if they are still on track to open in Early 2015? I have not heard anything from the Alderman's Office.

  • What does that have to do with Whole Foods? Get out of here!

  • ERussell Edgewater resident and dog owner

    Wowwwwww. Simmer down.

    Peter, there was a recent community meeting. It looks like April of 2015. They did get a liquor license, so there will be the new usual pub/grill type stuff there. I wish it would open sooner, too! No more drives, however short, to Evanston to shop there.

TV Repair

Does anyone know of a TV repair shop that works on (and has parts for) older, picture tube model TV's? I have an older Sharp TV that I really like - but the picture tube finally gave out. I'd like have it repaired, even though I know I could easily buy a new TV, probably for what it will cost to repair it. I already have several newer, flat screen TV's, but this one's my favorite. Any recommendations would be appreciated. Prefer someone in the Edgewater/Andersonville, Rogers Park area, but I'm willing to venture out of the neighborhood for someone reputable.

  • Aram- Minas TV & Video owner- Edgewater neighbor for 44 years
