Hawk Sighting.....

Keep an eye on your small dogs. I spotted a hawk on my neighbor's fence at Devon and Oriole. I have seen these things take a small dog and carry them off. It is a rare sighting in the area. Be on the lookout. It is black with a white neck and grey face.

    Hawks aren't all that rare in the Chicago area.

  • ls

    I see them often around Brooks Park and the area.

  • No at rare as you think. This summer there was a flock of three flying around our part of EP. We see them now and then. These are brown.

Strange Pick-Up truck running with stranger inside in front of our home

We came home about 1 am Tuesday morning to find a strange pick-up truck running with the lights on & a strange young driver sound asleep inside.

We came home about 1 am Tuesday morning to find a strange pick-up truck running with the lights on & a strange young driver sound asleep inside. Being cautious & hoping to keep the situation from escalating, we called the police. We were relieved when two police vehicles showed up. We watched out of our front windows as thr strange young man got out of his car & was questioned & searched. Then, his pick-up truck was also searched. He ended up in one of the police vehicles & a policeman drove the pick-up truck away. This was a very unsettling & weirdly unexpected experience where we live. We live across from Brooks Park, so for a moment, we wondered if he had a dog or something related to the park or somebody looking for one of our 3 adult children. We have lived here since 1979, & we never experienced this before.

    That's why you pay taxes, to have the cops come out. Good on you for keeping an eye out.

Senior Living Recommendations?

My father (79yo) has dementia and is currently at home, being cared for by my mother (76yo). My sister, mother and I are starting to research senior living facilities in the area that also offer memory care as his condition is quickly worsening. Any feedback or personal experiences with these type of facilities would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

  • i agree with the others, norwood crossing is very good. we used it for a year and a half and had no issues. you may return there after a hospital visit which is nice. it has much to offer including programs to stay busy and keep up with current events, physical and speech therapy, music therapy. transportation to doctor appointments and dental visit. they made the best for a difficult situation for families.

  • Norwood Crossing's Memory Unit is excellent. Individual rooms, hotel like. Staff is wonderful and caring with many activities for the residents. Highly recommended if you can afford it. Expensive but worth very penny. My aunt was their until her passing.

Most are not what u planned for your love one but wherever u choose just make sure there are a lot of in scheduled visits by loved ones at random times. It keeps the staff on there toes not knowing when someone is going to show up. I've worked at Bethany terrace, sunrise asst living(pricey) Norwood crossing and st Andrew by touhy and Milwaukee. All very different depending on if the person is social, active, reserved ect. Not an easy rode ahead of u. Good luck

Hello neighbors,
I lost a brown, short haired, female tabby cat who is about 5 months old in the alley behind 6678 N. Olympia early Sunday morning. Please let me know if you have seen her. We really miss her.

Thank you Abell Animal Hospital

Yesterday I had to put my pet down. One of the hardest things to do. I have been coming to you sense 1988. Nothing has changed. NOTHING! We had the whole staff with us. We asked for the last appointment of the day so that we could have our privacy. Holy cow! You people have more compassion than ANYONE. Dr. Cheryl, thank you for your compassion to me and my husband. Dr. Sing, thank you for ALL you do for...

Yesterday I had to put my pet down. One of the hardest things to do. I have been coming to you sense 1988. Nothing has changed. NOTHING! We had the whole staff with us. We asked for the last appointment of the day so that we could have our privacy. Holy cow! You people have more compassion than ANYONE. Dr. Cheryl, thank you for your compassion to me and my husband. Dr. Sing, thank you for ALL you do for my dog and my cats. And Chris, thank you for being the best person in animal health care there is. I have known you for years. You are amazing. I don't care what ANYONE has said about Abell Animal Hospital on here. I have to say, they are the BEST. When my dog is dragging ME into a doctor's office to get a shot, I know I'm going to the right place. Thank you for your compassion and your love. You ALL made Steve's last hours so loving, not only for Steve but for us to. Thank you. We love you ALL so much.

  • I'm so sorry for your loss.

    I agree that the staff at Abell is great.

  • Nick Neighborhood watch
