Public masturbation

This was reported yesterday:

A heavy Hispanic man just left the Open Arms program of New Community Church, 2649 N, Francisco Ave., walked across Francisco Ave. to Schubert, started looking at someone through the window of the first floor apartment, and then pulled out his penis.

A neighbor ran out and yelled at him and he turned around and exposed himself then started peeing and cursing at the neighbor.

The person at Open Arms was informed of this and his response was that what these people do outside of the program's doors is not their problem. The incident was reported to the police.

  • Gross. It will soon become their problem whether they want it to or not.

  • catlady for the love of cats, lets get along!

    not funny but couldn't help but to chuckle.
    Peeping toms are on the prowel.

  • So what are we chuckling at again? The victims of sexual harassment? The lasting effect a violation like this could have on their psychological well being?

Location ideas for twin boys 1st birthday

I am looking for a place to have a birthday party for 1-year-old twin boys. We only need space for about 20 adults and 6 children under 2 years old. We are looking for inexpensive options. Thank you

  • G

    Indian Boundary Park. It's outdoors, so u don't have to pay for a room. Bring your own food and drinks. And the have a big awesome wooden play area for kids to entertain themselves for hours.

  • We used one of the rooms at Haas Park, it worked out really well. Have fun!

4th of July on the square

Is Logan Square (the actual park/monument area) usually loud with fireworks on the 4th of July?

I currently live near the California stop and people start lighting off fireworks as soon as summer starts, but I'm moving on the 1st to just north of the square. My dog is very scared of loud fireworks and I usually take him to the suburbs for the 4th to get away from the noise. Just trying to find out if this is necessary at my new place.

Thanks in advance.

  • TanleyD N/A

    I had to give my dog Xanax for the days leading up to the 4th as well. I couldn't believe how many fireworks were going off all weekend before the holiday the last couple years. It really helped but if you have an option in the burbs then I would go for it! Good luck with your pup!

  • Everywhere around Logan Square and Humboldt Park will sound like a war zone.

IL Centennial Monument tagged again at heart of Logan Boulevard Square

The Eagle monument centerpiece of Logan Boulevard Square has been tagged on all four sides on upper base above the ornamental carvings. Large bnoxious symbolsin green paint including $ sign.

  • The costs of removing graffiti raise the cost of living in Chicago. So, maybe the $$ sign is the only appropriate thing about it.

Native plants?

Are there any native plant sales coming up? Or can someone recommend a garden center that will have a few?

  • KPG Logan Square resident since 1987

    If you want, I have a form of yellow Coneflower that grows about 5 1/2 feet tall and blooms in Summer to Fall. It has a clumping habit, so it doesn't spread like crazy! It's already potted up, but I could dig up more. Private message me if you want it.

  • Thanks for the suggestions! I'll try Gethsemene and the farmer's market for plants. If i can plan a bigger trip later this summer I'll try to hit up the other suggestions.

Dog Attack at Logan Square Dog Park on Memorial Day

Hello.

At around 11 am on May 29, 2017, we took our dog Ozzie to the Logan Square dog park. We were there only a couple minutes before a dog singled Ozzie out and barked and snapped at him.

Hello.

At around 11 am on May 29, 2017, we took our dog Ozzie to the Logan Square dog park. We were there only a couple minutes before a dog singled Ozzie out and barked and snapped at him. It wasn't a typical "back off" warning, as Ozzie was clearly not the aggressor, nor was he even interested in this other dog. A short time later, the same dog locked on to Ozzie's throat and jaw and would not let go. Another dog apparently became agitated and confused by the scuffle and began biting Ozzie's stomach area, resulting in several lacerations. Thankfully, someone at the park was able to finally pry one dog off of Ozzie's throat. We don't know who you are but we wanted to thank you for such a selfless act. Hopefully we can thank you in person. Another dog owner at the park that day was adamant that Ozzie did not deserve this. We wanted to thank you as well for loudly speaking up and for offering to get the owners contact info. We hope to find you, as well.

Unfortunately, we never got the name of the owners of the dogs who attacked Ozzie, either. They slipped out of the park while my partner comforted Ozzie and I ran to get a car. There was no apology. No acknowledgement. No sharing of contact info. Nothing.

  • Pedro, as opposed to just giving you a thumbs down I thought I'd approach you directly: it's not that simple. Sometimes in kicking the other dog you make the situation & injuries worse to your own dog. I'm sure they did everything they could to protect their dog. No one asks for things like this to happen.

  • Michael McDonough Resident of BelCragin

    There should be some sort of accountability measure in place at dog parks a camera positioned to catch the entire area or some way of having a registration card some way of being able to identify and hold accountable the owner which might cut down on these incidences.
