Neighborhood Doctors?

I could use some help, neighbors. Does anyone see a doctor locally that they like enough to recommend? My general physician just switched practices and my insurance (Blue Cross Blue Shield, but not the fancy kind) doesn't cover his new practice. I'm super uncomfortable with the idea of just looking up a doctor in the phonebook or relying on their website's reviews which could have come from anywhere, but no one I know is thrilled with their GP. Who doesn't have to drive too far and still likes their doctor?

Thanks :-)

Development Watch: Proposed 50-Unit Mayne Stage Apartments May Be the Anti-TOD

1313 Morse Avenue may be getting a major upgrade, according to Ald. Joe Moore (49th). The ghost town...

  • Agreed, TM. Loyola does a very good job of business development overall. One thing I don't know about is Tawani's success in that area in other parts of the city. That would be interesting information to have.

  • Need for a Change 20 years in Rogers Park

    JS-You are correct that the Tawaini people and the Alderman are telling the community this to sell them the project, but since when are they obligated to be truthful ? 25 spaces will satisfy the parking demands for 45 units which can pay $1,200 a $1,500 per month in rent? Sorry, they could at least give us a kiss before they try to "F" us!

Not sure if I can post this here. And not sure if these are prescription or not. Contact me if you're missing a pair.

  • By any chance are they black square frames with pink on the inside?

    Squarish frames, no pink on the inside. And they have rhinestones on them.

Why was the new Divy bike kiosk added to Morse Ave and not under the viaduct on Lunt?

Seems we found the most effecient way to continue to pay LAZ for parking lost in perpetuity.
How many spots in Rogers Park were lost to Divy and what is the anual bill for those lost spots?

    Which is it... were there two spots lost (vs 'one or two people') or zero because it was already z no parking zone? I'm inclined to believe Bob Fuller's response over yours. Did you mean dozens can now use those spaces versus ZERO people previously? ...Not one or two, since... you know... it would've been illegal to be parking there?

Peaceful Day on 7/4/15 @ Loyola Park and Beach

Families started arriving and dropping off their picnic items, tents, grills @ 5:45 AM today. There was a PD officer, in a very organized fashion, keeping the vehicles moving, as the people unloaded their picnic items, tents, grills, coolers. Only incredibly peaceful crowd enjoying themselves for a day in the park. Such a great day, I'd say @ least 1000 people in the park alone. No fireworks, no horns beeping, no loud music, just people enjoying a wonderful day with family and friends. The way we love to see people enjoying the great 4th of July celebration.

  • Wonderful day on the beach! Everyone was there for the same reason, to enjoy themselves on a beautiful summer day. And by the looks of things, everyone was.

  • d3 NOH

    I wonder if the PD clearing people out at 11 is what caused the family of 8 walking home down the street (past Helen's) blasting roman candles at cars and leaving trash everywhere... it's amazing what people can get away w/ in this city. :x we'll see how this week goes I guess!

    Thanks to some early morning risers cleaning every morning the beaches are already only half as covered in trash as they were last year.

I broke up a cat fight last night and took this little girl home with me. I can't keep her much longer because I have three pets already including an un-neutered male cat. She's white with tabby patches, green eyes and a pink nose. She's very small and very chatty! Found on North Hermitage Avenue. Please text or call 312-259-0937 if she belongs to you!

Pet Food Pantry: DONATIONS DESPERATELY NEEDED!

We're halfway through the 2015 and so far, the Care For Real Pet Food Pantry has fed 742 dogs and 899 cats fed. While those numbers are good, I'm afraid they're not quite good enough. Last month saw us experiencing a drought in donations, which are now desperately needed for both cats and dogs! If you have anything to spare, please consider making a donation to ensure that all of the animals in our community are able to eat.

  • Catherine Animal Care Giver and Personal Organizer

    Care For Real doesn't have much of a social media presence. I get the sense that they're a small charity that helps hundreds of people and I think their staff is only three people. (I've asked if they were hiring). They have a lot of regular volunteers. For a mention of accepting donations, http://www.careforreal.org/pet.shtml

    Patti at Bark Bark Club is very much involved in the Pet Food Pantry (I see her there every month), and her contact info is on the web page I linked to.

  • Catherine Animal Care Giver and Personal Organizer

    Also, if you or anyone you know needs pet food or pet supplies, I THINK Care for Real has zero boundaries for their pet pantry, meaning anyone in the city can come in. (They do have boundaries for food/clothing.) Please call to double check this.

I want to fit in

So, I should make a post trying to figure out who's the new incarnation of a banned user, a post blaming the alderman for all my troubles, be a busybody in general, and make ad hominem attacks on members of the small clique that hasn't given up on the futility of Everyblock, right?
Is that what I need to do?

Bent Street Sign

There is a bent street sign at Farwell and Greenview and I would like to know how to alert the city so that it can be fixed; I believe this is used to signal gang activity and want to nip this in the bud.

  • Call 311 and report it.

  • In addition to calling 311, there is an app for smartphones called "ChiWorks" that you can use to send a picture of the problem along with description/location. I've used it to report several issues and they were all addressed quickly.

Hello neighbors ! I live in Swanettes building next to the Leone beach lifeguard house. I wanted to make my neighbors aware that Last night the lifeguards jeopardized the safety of people in my building, including a year and a half old little girl by shooting my fireworks at our building. While I am relatively certain it was unintentional , nonetheless it was very irresponsible and celebration or not, it is their job to protect us and to keep the beach is safe from people getting hurt. It was a group of 15 males... all lifeguards. They are or first line of defense and last night they failed us. Because of this and the obvious epic fail in the judgment of management in the hiring process, I do not feel safe with these boys protecting our lives. Not one of them expressed remorse and even worse, one of them threatened another gentleman in my building for confronting him....and a fight almost broke out.I tried to bring the attention to the police, and they did nothing but shined a flashlight in the general direction and continue yelling at people in the parking lot to get out of the park or get a ticket. The mistake I made was not dialing 911 immediately. And then the police would be forced to do something about it. that's two fails in Public Safety. So I invite my neighbors to keep your eyes and ears out, and remain diligent in making sure that our public servants are doing their jobs, lifeguards, police and all. I'm doing my part to call the Leone park manager And report this incident to the police sergeant on duty .

I hope you all had a wonderful and safe with July and enjoy this beautiful day in. Thank you

Atlas Moving?

Hi Everyone, I searched for movers here on EB, and got some recommendations, thanks!

Have a specific question about another mover we are looking at for a cross-country move -- Atlas -- anyone have any experience with them? Please feel free to private message, if preferred.

  • Tracey in RP eyes like a shutter, mind like a lens

    I used them to move back up here from TN and had absolutely no issues with them. They came to pack the truck on time and did so efficiently, everything arrived at my place here in schedule and the moves me in efficiently. I had no issues with broken or missing items either. Good luck!

  • Leelee Dog lady, cat lady, juicer extraordinaire

    Thank you! Tried to thank you and thanked myself... oops -- I haven't been on the site in a while, and some things have changed.

  • I used them as well and was happy although it was several years ago. I have moving pads for sale if you are interested. They are left over from that move. email me privately if you are interested or check out my listing on Craig's list.

Before you fire up the grill and shoot the fireworks, don't forget to put out the flag to celebrate our wonderful country and all that it has to offer.

    Chip,
    I was also surprised and confused why Scaredonestes would give me a thumbs down. There have been other posts that could be debated, but I thought that this one was pretty benign.
    Well they sent their own post which is supposed to explain it. While July 4th does represent many things,, I don't think that my suggestion was wrong, just another way to honor our flag and the 4th.

Rogers Park event for the Great Chicago Fire Festival

Looks like Rahm and RedMoon are going to do another Great Chicago Fire Festival this year, and there are going to be some neighborhood "residency" events in preparation for a spectacle at Northerly Island on Sept. 26. Loyola Park is listed as one of the seven residency locations for this year:

http://www.chicagofirefestival.com/what/

Surprised I've heard nothing about this until today.

I find no specific dates for the Rogers Park residency on the official site. Anybody have more info on what is planned for Rogers Park, and when it will happen?

  • Based on the "Where" section of the website link you provided, looks like the residency will go from July 6 to August 30. I enjoyed Redmoon performances on years past (didnt make last years flop), hopefully this will be fun and interesting! Not sure it's a performance though. Website is very vague and they haven't promoted this at all.
