Help, loud neighbors at 1434 W. Rosemont Ave!

Does anyone know what to do about very loud music, yelling, screaming, and parties most weekends? I have called the police multiple times, but there is no change or response. The latino, family house at 1434 Rosemont continues to disturb the community with very, very loud music, screaming kids, and fiestas every weekend. Please help! If you hear the music, please call 911 to report them. Maybe a group of people calling can make the difference. I can't imagine imagine...

Does anyone know what to do about very loud music, yelling, screaming, and parties most weekends? I have called the police multiple times, but there is no change or response. The latino, family house at 1434 Rosemont continues to disturb the community with very, very loud music, screaming kids, and fiestas every weekend. Please help! If you hear the music, please call 911 to report them. Maybe a group of people calling can make the difference. I can't imagine imagine how they would feel if the neighbors played very loud classical music all day and night for them? Thanks for any help! :) Greatly appreciated....

    Speaking of “blasting classical music,” decades ago when I lived in the upstairs apt. of an Andersonville 2-flat, I had just bought one of the early CD decks. I was eager to try it out, so early one afternoon I put on the Telarc CD of the “1812 Overture,” complete with digitally-recorded church bells and cannons. Not ten minutes after it was over, there was a pounding on my door, followed by “Chicago Police--open up and stand back!” I opened the door and there were two cops and my downstairs neighbor. Before I could say anything, he exclaimed, “thank God you’re all right!” The cops explained my neighbor had called in about possible shots having been fired. I apologized and showed my neighbor and the cops the CD player and disc, and explained about the digital cannons. I promised to keep the volume down. The cops left and my neighbor was fascinated--he asked me to replay the disc.

    Next day, a delivery truck pulled up in front of the house: into my neighbor’s apartment went a huge A/V system (with 6’ panel speakers).

    Racism and intolerance is still alive around here.
    I bet the most EB racist are helpless, weak individuals, afraid of their own shadows who use this site as a way to vent their frustrations. Pathetic.

Shots at Winthrop and Thorndale

Heard shots roughly half an hour ago and it appears that a man was shot on Winthrop near the Thorndale corner. Be careful out there folks.

  • That's why I am afraid of going to the Armory !!!!! I am 68 years old. I can't run anymore.

  • I Had To Say It Reality does not equal negativity.

    You just need to duck. Ducking and "I've Fallen And I Can't Get Up" are kinda the same thing in these cases.

  • Are you stalking me Mr. I Had To Say It ????? If you can't say any thing positive then don't say anything to me !!! Thank and God bless you.

Multiple Spare Tires Stolen Overnight

Good Morning, well for some it is not. Walking to my vehicle this morning to go to work and I noticed that a neighbor had their spare tire taken off the back of their SUV and the cover just laying on the ground next to it.

As I drove around the block I noticed three more this happened to.

This was in the area of Glenwood/Balmoral/Lakewood/Berwyn.

If anyone has camera's I would encourage them to send to the police. Unfortunately all these individuals need to call the police to ensure no other items were taken and give their personal info. Nothing anyone else can do.

  • Hi Feliz--thank you for such a kind, sincere apology, my friend. I get fearful too sometimes. With so many of us all packed so closely together we get to see the most beautiful and horrible sides of humanity every day. My love to you and your granddaughter.

  • ETL007 - thank you for your acknowledgement of my apology ! God bless you.

Breast massage?

Ok, given the lymphatic system in women's breasts and the rate of breast cancer in my family, I am looking for a full body massage including breasts. Non sexual just preventative. Any thoughts or recommendations?

  • SpamAlert Hates being spammed

    Please, everybody, let's just stop now!

    Maybe someone can start a thread, "Testicle Massage?" or "Jay Cutler's wife says vaccines are an even worse option than her husband" or just "Post Your Junk Science Here!"

  • Sandy in EdgeGlen EdgeGlen since 1987

    A.S., you were making perfect sense until you came to “vaccines.” Too bad, since anti-vaxing has been disproven as junk science...which lowers the credibility (and could lead some to dismiss the rest) of your comment. All the other substances you mention therein HAVE contributed to obesity, metabolic syndrome and cancer.

    You don’t have to swallow the alternative anti-Establishment dogma hook, line and sinker. (Mixed metaphors, I know--but “drinking the Kool-Aid” would seem especially inapropos). Be an informed consumer: research assertions individually.

Parking at Catalpa Gardens

Hi. If anyone passes Catalpa Gardens condos at 1122 W Catalpa Ave and sees a sign in the window for parking spaces for rent would you please relay the info to me? I've tried reaching the management office (unsuccessfully) and am out of town, so a little help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!
Jerry

  • The building management company and company that rents the spots are different. I'll get you the number from the sign for parking spaces. It's an indoor garage with security camera and easy access.

  • The sign outside says 773-368-4904
