Police Activity Spaulding Just South of Irving Park

Spaulding is blocked off right now, and a few homes are taped off. Seem to be a number of officers. Anyone know what happened?

  • Just saw this on Mell's Facebook: Community Safety Update: Homicide, 8/31
    The Commander has shared with us that police are investigating a homicide that occurred on the 3900 block of N. Spaulding earlier today (8/31) around 11am.
    The victim, who was DOA, appears to have been killed by blunt force to the head, appears to have known his assailant. This incident appears to be personal in nature, not a gang-related incident.
    Anyone with information about this or other incidents of crime should contact 911 immediately.

Found White Cat in the Irving Park Neighborhood

I have been seeing a white cat with green eyes in the Irving Park neighborhood, in the area surrounding Independence Park (between Hamlin Ave, Byron St, and Irving Park Rd). He/she is very friendly. Before I rent the Tree House humane traps to take him in and get him neutered, I thought of posting here in case this cat is not tray. If he/she belongs to you or you know whose it is, please let me know. I would like to get him a home before the cold weather arrives. If you are interested in keeping him, let me know too. Thanks!

  • kvee California and irving park resident

    Hi, I saw your photo and was able to enlarge it a bit. It looks as if he may be part of that TNR program. I believe his left ear looks tipped but it may just be the picture. If his ear is tipped, he has Also been chipped ....

    Hi, I saw your photo and was able to enlarge it a bit. It looks as if he may be part of that TNR program. I believe his left ear looks tipped but it may just be the picture. If his ear is tipped, he has Also been chipped . You can bring him to tree house and they will be able to let you know who the chip comes back to. He is a beautiful cat, I sure hope he finds a good home or he is returned to his home. Thanks for taking care of him/her.

  • kvee California and irving park resident

    Fyi, you just need a credit card as a deposit to use one of those traps. Once it is returned your credit card information is returned to you. If he is quite friendly, you can carry him in a
    Cat carrier, once his appointment is made. Sometimes tree house may consider housing him if he is sociable.

Kitty found in alley that needs forever home. Can anyone help, I'm highly allergic! :(

Hello friends, we've found an adorable kitty that needs a home asap. If anyone can help please contact me here. I have year round allergies as it is so the kitty is really effecting me horribly and needs to go asap.
We've had issues with a feral female cat in our alley who is constantly having babies that we don't know what to do with. I wish the city would come out, catch and fix her so this would stop.
The kitty is currently being bottle fed, is fully black in color and seems to be in overall good health.
Thanks in advance, Carla :)

  • Tree House is loaded with the 130 cats trapped at that foreclosed bungalow, I bet. Someone needs to call about trapping the mom though. Or Paws.

  • Julia in Lincoln Square Television publicist

    Do try Harmony House, as Preeti suggested. Great organization -- two of my cats were adopted from there.

    Gang leader indicted on gun charge a week after arrest in shooting

  • Hope he has to pay the guys medical bills and he sues him. How much tax dollars are used for the hospital bills for all these gangs? Also the tax dollars used for the courts, jails ect. for them?

Electrical problems lately?

For the past few weeks it seems like there is not enough power coming in to our house. The power will also surge frequently. I thought it may have been related to a strain on the system due to everyone having the air conditioning on since it was so hot. However, it's still happening now that things have cooled off. Anyone else experiencing similar issues in the area?

  • Danielle neighbor since 2003

    I was having "brown outs" for several weeks. An electrician thought it was a problem on the ComEd side involving the Neutral wire and connection. ComEd came out and replaced the Neutral wire and connection at my building and in the alley at the main connection point. It worked like a charm - no problems since then.

  • Laura Neighbor

    We get a surge every night around 11PM. So weird!
