Throwing trash, ghetto

As I was on my way home from work, I watched a ghetto trash girl literally throw a glass bottle out of her driver side window and drop it in the middle of the street at Augusta and Kedzie. She was headed West on Augusta. With the nonchalant ignorant look on her face, it appears she must do this all the time because she looked like she could care less. This is disgusting. We were all stunned and in shock when the glass went shattering all over the street. I don't know how anyone thinks this is okay. If I had my eye glasses on, I would have taken down her plate number and reported her to the police.

  • Her...you know, her! Lifetime Chicagoan; new to Logan Square

    If I can at all when I witness littering, I give them the "shame, shame" finger. Ninety percent of the people give me the finger; only once did the woman go "sorry."

  • urban loves urban life.

    omg..! this makes me crazy, and then I think who raised these people? such a lack of respect for themselves-and everyone else:(

Large dog with grey speckled fur roaming around Kedzie/Beach Avenue

This morning around 10:30 a.m. I saw a very large dog with speckled grey fur roaming west on Beach Avenue. Anytime I tried to get close to it he or she would bolt down the street, but it looked like a sweet guy or gal who had probably just recently "escaped" from its home. I had to go to work but my neighbor went looking for the dog and told me the police and animal control were trying to catch it. Sorry I don't have a photo or more details, but thought I'd post just in case anyone out there is looking for this dog, or knows of its owner.

Found cat

This cat is wearing a pink collar and is in my front yard. Does she belong to someone? I'm in the 1700 north block of Albany. She's very friendly.

  • Probably just an "outdoor" cat... nothing on the collar?

  • Cat Wrangler happy Humboldt Park resident

    The cat was an indoor cat who escaped from my neighbor's home. She is now back home.

  • steven 60706 resident

    Property sold for 900k I know the owner he was desperate. 30 units does this include first floor retail? Figure 30 residential units sold at 500k per and builder sells the retail space as condos too or retains ownership and rents for stores or offices. 900k for land that could handle such a large project. 25 foot lot in area sells for near 400k Ok he wasn't a dope just someone that gave it away
