2800 block of irving park

What's going on across from Burger King?

  • So you think it came from that building behind The Peek Inn?

  • The Great 33rd Lifelong Northsider!

    I had been curious about that. I see a lot of riff raff there from time to time and was under the impression that is a hang out for older gang members.

Proposed Schurz athletic field discussed at community meeting hosted by Ald. Arena

Residents express concern about the impact of closing section of Waveland Avenue for the proposed project; alderman to form steering committee

http://nadignewspapers.com/2014/10/13/ald-arena-will-form-committee-to-address-concerns-about-closing-waveland-for-schurz-athletic-field/

  • Careyann Old Irving resident

    2 weeks post-meeting with Alderman Arena, has anything happened other than the monthly OIPA meeting back on Oct 13th? Has the steering committe been formed? Is there any neighborhood group that has been formed to specifically object to the proposed project?

Feral/Alley Cat Colony

Over the last few years our feral/alley cat population in the 3700 Block of Albany has gone sky high. It all started with a few houses that kept their non-spayed/neutered cats outside. I know of at least 20 cats that room the block.

The biggest issue is that they come into our yards and gardens and defecate everywhere and then we have to clean it up. I have an indoor cat, but outdoor cat feces can be harmful if touched....

Over the last few years our feral/alley cat population in the 3700 Block of Albany has gone sky high. It all started with a few houses that kept their non-spayed/neutered cats outside. I know of at least 20 cats that room the block.

The biggest issue is that they come into our yards and gardens and defecate everywhere and then we have to clean it up. I have an indoor cat, but outdoor cat feces can be harmful if touched.

And my neighbor can't get them out of his garage. He is now on his third momma kitty with a litter that has crawled through the side and camped out far under a utility bench. He feels bad of course and doesn't want to harm them so he just lives with is, but again cat poop everywhere.

It is hard to know if these are someone's pets or not. I heard that PAWS has a trap/spray and release program but what if these are really pets? I guess if they are and the owner let's them roam then it's fair game? I have noticed more alley cats on blocks on Troy and Whipple too. Anybody else having this issue?

  • Greg V. Cycling Dude

    Sorry, that should be LOTS of stray cats.

  • My street, the 3400 block of Keating, has no other feral cats wandering around. There used to be one or two, but I haven't seen them in ages. The rat population has exploded. I have been here 22 years, and back then I used to see 1 rat a year,...

    My street, the 3400 block of Keating, has no other feral cats wandering around. There used to be one or two, but I haven't seen them in ages. The rat population has exploded. I have been here 22 years, and back then I used to see 1 rat a year, if that. Lately, we had them running through our yard every day. I was afraid to work in my garden, and I was so afraid they would get in my house and garage. Ugh! I have had my 4 feral cats for only a few weeks, and I have not seen one rat in that time. It is like a miracle.

  • Park View Lutheran School reviewed by a parent

    I give high marks for Park View. My daughter was previously at a Catholic School and it was much larger. She was bullied relentlessly. The teachers and principal were a part of the bulling. They convinced me that she could not long. In addition, my mom went to the school for me and all the white students stared as if she had two hears. One girl from the region around India started screaming and crying while pointing to her. It was if no one in that school had ever seen a black person up close and they all only wanted us to go. We left and went to Park View and the atmosphere was fun, accepting, and friendly. The grades began to improve and in time she started getting A's. Go there, they are nice, warm people.
