    I wish we could participate but alas we are in the 39th ward and we don't have anything like this. We have an alderman who doesn't really care to interact with us and of course if far too important to be on any social media site where her voters might actually hear something from her and be able to give input. Would it be easier to elect another alderman or to get redistricted into the 45th?

    I'm pretty sure you too can nominate things at the survey monkey website. Of course you're voting on 45th Ward stuff but still.

Slowest Chipotle Ever Built

Is it just me or can a Chipotle be whittled out of balsa wood faster than the one on Irving is getting done?

Christmas is over!

Seriously people-- please take down your holiday decorations! Deflated Santas... sagging snowmen... plastic candy canes... and OH the lights! There's even a house in my neighborhood with a Halloween banner still up.

Don't put it up unless you plan on taking it down in a timely manner. Do you need my help? You might get it--want it or not. 4700 blocks of Berenice and Grace-- I'm especially talking about YOU!

  • My elderly aunt left her tree up year-round because she made the ornaments for it by hand and it made her happy. Now that she's gone, it's something that makes me chuckle in amusement when I think about her. It was her only eccentricity.

    Unless there's an HOA rule that's being broken, I think you're probably stuck with seeing the Christmas decorations until next Christmas.

  • That's a cute story, Nick-G. I suppose we all have our eccentricities to a certain degree. I imagine I would leave my Halloween decorations up year-round inside my home if I thought I could get away with doing so.

    Leaving decorations outside after a reasonable period is just being lazy.

    Six Corners Sam, perhaps an anonymous letter or flier can be sent to the offending parties announcing the change of seasons and the end of certain holiday times.

Keep on eye on your cars...

Last night (Wednesday April 16th) at 7pm, I parked my car near the corner of Grace and Kenneth. This morning at 8 am, I got out to my car, started it, and found out that someone stole the catalytic converter from my car overnight. In order to do so, the thieves had to jack my car up (a 95 Pontiac Grand Am), crawl under it,and cut out the part. If you saw anything or have any information, please message me.

With the construction on Milwaukee, and all the cars that have to find alternate parking, please be keep an eye on your cars and your neighbors cars. Thanks.

  • MB

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but they will likely target you again. I was at the police station filing police reports for our multiple car break ins over the winter (Kilbourn & Grace) and the police told me they come back because they know you had to replace the item and the new converter is what they are actually going after. Thank you for the heads up and sorry to hear your news.

  • Sue Portage Park-er

    I saw this happening one morning about 3-4 months ago. There were 2 vehicles involved, one likely the lookout. The guy doing the work was hispanic and drove off in an older silver minivan, maybe a Chevy Lumina, the pointy front one. The lookout was in a larger burgundy SUV with the Dove specialty license plate. Unfortunately it was too dark to get plate #s and when I called 911 the operator took the info but didn't really make me feel confident anything would happen with it.

Got a Basement to rent?

Looking to rent a Basement or basement apartment that is absolutely clean and dry and ideally with high ceilings and that is absolutely private and secure. I am a realtor with a home staging business on the side, dedicated to helping my seller clients, and I need an affordable space to store my inventory ( some furniture and home accessories and artwork) I would ideally be able to hang artwork on walls. I'd be a great tenant.

  • Jen Baron JBaron

    Aidan33- I am just looking for storage as my original post says, I have a home staging business and I need to store my staging inventory only. Ideal is a secure, private basement. $600 sounds reasonable, but I'm looking for something more affordable . Thanks for your post.

  • robin in WRP Tired, very tired
