Found BUNNY RABBIT 4100 block North Kenneth

I found a very frightened fluffy creamy white rabbit at around 8:40 tonight Monday. Bunny is now in a large bird cage at my house. My dog would love to get to know him/her better. I have never housed a rabbit, not sure if I should put it in a small room (bathroom) with a litter box, if I should put a cozy blanket in the cage or what. I don't have time to research this right now. I really need for someone to claim this baby asap. I'm on the 4500 block Kostner. 715-2765 call anytime. even if it's not yours but you want to help please someone take this bunny. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!!

  • Libet pit bull owner!

    The suggested "shelters" above are rescues - they only want the best for the animals they take in. Very different from dropping a stray dog at Animal Care & Control.

  • I know Libet, I should have been more clear. I am pretty familiar with the rescue (no kill) culture. We all want what is best for the animals, but there is no universal ideal of what's best. In other words I don't always agree with the rescue missions.

Upcoming Schurz meeting Oct 8

http://www.dnainfo.com/chicago/20140930/irving-park/schurz-field-meeting-set-im-hopeful-that-theyll-listen-principal-says

The principal hopes the neighbors will listen. We might have listened a long time ago had anyone bothered to tell us! All that secrecy is what blew up. And oddly, there was not one mention of Bob Tucker Sr (their proposal writing champion) whose foundation Urban Schools Foundation shares his son's athletic marketing business CDI.

If it walks like a duck ... just sayin

Meeting cancelled at Schurz

If you have been following the Schurz field renovation story, then you know that even though the school has been planning and seeking funds and working with the city, the neighbors knew nothing of this plan until a couple weeks ago.

If you have been following the Schurz field renovation story, then you know that even though the school has been planning and seeking funds and working with the city, the neighbors knew nothing of this plan until a couple weeks ago. As October was quickly approaching, my fear was that the meeting would be so last minute that no one would be available or no one would hear about it until after it was over. Then we heard that a meeting was scheduled for Oct 1st and began spreading the word. But we had no confirmation and nothing official and neighborhood groups did not want to spread the word, in case it was incorrect. Now this:

" just got off the phone with Anthony Alfano from Alderman Arena's office who told me the meeting on the proposed field will not take place on October 1 as he had told me because the people in Schurz 'were not ready.' He said they will notify us directly as well as by OIPA. He said they would now the date of the meeting by week's end."

Schurz is not ready? They have been planning and getting money together for this since the beginning of the year but they are not ready to have a meeting and talk to the neighbors?! We are all afraid now that this is ploy, that they will spring a meeting on us with no warning so that no one knows about it and they can say that no one was interested and no one attended. Please keep the Oct 1 date open just in case.

Be vigilant and please pass this on.

  • Or if you think the field may bring concrete benefits to the school and the to those in the community attending the school, please attend.

  • Patt Timlin Grew up in Avondale; moved into Old Irving in 1977

    To be clear, we are not opposed to ANY improvements to the field. It obviously is in bad shape and the school has not cared for it in ages. This proposal seemed less about the students and the school since it suggests taking the field away from the school and giving it to the park district to make money. We would like to see an improved field for the school and students and community but not so much as to disrupt the quality of life of people living here. There can be a happy medium. People were just very angered at the lack of transparency.

Schurz H.S. Athletic Field Proposal Meeting Set

A proposal put forth by the Urban Schools Foundation to strengthen the athletic program at Schurz High School, including the construction of a new IHSA standard athletic field from Waveland Avenue to Kostner Avenue, is in the conceptual design stage.

The goal is to provide our future students access to the same amenities and competitive programs offered at so many other neighborhood high schools. However, the proposal would require the closing of Waveland Ave. to auto traffic between Milwaukee and...

A proposal put forth by the Urban Schools Foundation to strengthen the athletic program at Schurz High School, including the construction of a new IHSA standard athletic field from Waveland Avenue to Kostner Avenue, is in the conceptual design stage.

The goal is to provide our future students access to the same amenities and competitive programs offered at so many other neighborhood high schools. However, the proposal would require the closing of Waveland Ave. to auto traffic between Milwaukee and Lowell.

This is a significant change to consider. If this project were to be approved, it may require traffic flow changes to the sounding streets.

We all want Schurz to improve and thrive as a strong neighborhood school - one that draws families to the neighborhood, and one where our families are proud to send their children. I will seek solutions to address and mitigate concerns that have arisen from the initial proposal.

I will host a public meeting on the proposal at 7 pm Wednesday, Oct. 8, in the Schurz Library, 3601 N. Milwaukee. There, you can learn about the proposal and share your concerns and suggestions.

From the day this proposal came through my door, I made it clear this field must be prohibited from hosting or being rented to adult leagues. Its primary user would be Schurz Athletics. The community would enjoy second priority, with a schedule that is driven by the local stakeholders. The basic proposal includes a soccer field, football practice field, and either tennis courts or softball field.

Please remember that the proposal is just that - a proposal - and no final decision has been made. This stage is the time to engage in a dialog about how we help Schurz improve while mitigating any potential negative impact.

  • NASCAR Old Irving Park

    Thank you for posting this Alderman, we will definitely be attending.

  • How come they can't redo the field at Hanson stadium so more people and different schools and programs can benefit from an updated facility in the neighborhood

Schurz Field Renovation project

I called alderman's office today to find out if they are ever going to do anything about the horrible state of Waveland between Lowell and Milwaukee before someone breaks their neck or their car axle. It's ridiculous that they have let it go this long. We are nearly to the next winter. I was told they are going to patch it.

I called alderman's office today to find out if they are ever going to do anything about the horrible state of Waveland between Lowell and Milwaukee before someone breaks their neck or their car axle. It's ridiculous that they have let it go this long. We are nearly to the next winter. I was told they are going to patch it.

It needs more than patching. It is down to the cobble. We will do some patching. "There are a lot of propsals regarding that street." I asked by a lot of propals, are you referring to the proposed closure and he said yes. "Yes, but they still have to to studies with the traffic and Fire Department and Police."

Meanwhile Old Irving Park Association said those studies were already done in March and April. As usual, city politics. Never up front. Lots of secrecy. Lots of double talk. And could someone please tell me how this Mr. Tucker who is championing this whole thing (with his son in the athletic marketing business who would stand to make a lot of money from these sports arenas that dad is proposing to put up all over the city, using some city TIF money -- how is that not a huge conflict of interest? Anyway, this just in - so mark your calendars. Anyone who uses that street or who plans to EVER drive around this neighborhood needs to attend.

Hi folks--

Hot off the presses: Ald. Arena will host and moderate a community discussion about the proposed new playing field at Schurz H.S. on Wednesday, Oct. 8, 7 PM, Schurz library. Flyers will be distributed this weekend. Schurz H.S. and Urban School Foundation reps will be there to answer questions. Meeting open to everyone interested.
