Free stuff

I know its a lousy day, but our building just had a spring cleaning and there is an abundance of free items behind at 6703 Bosworth. Being that it is free, I will not be answering emails and messages regarding this, Thanks

Sirens and mor sirens.

WTH was happening this afternoon around 4 to 4:30? Constant sirens for a half hour that appeared to be heading north on Sheridan. Surely that wasn't all for the guy who got shot on Jonquil Terrace?

    Fire trucks at nursing home on Sheridan between Jarvis and Sherwin. Seems to be something on the roof.

Found Black Cat

Black cat with a small bit of white on his chest and no tags, outside in the 1100 block of Columbia. Very friendly. Any one know of a lost cat? Or simply a neighbor with a sweet outdoor cat?

  • Nan

    Maggie- Please let your neighbor know that he/she's really putting Panthro at serious risk by letting him roam outdoors. So many dangers - including rat poison. Big cities are not a healthy or natural habitat for cats.

  • I know that, and you know that, but so many people just keep letting cats roam. There are of course the dangers you mentioned, but there is also the threat of being captured and tortured by sadistic freaks. A friend of mine learned that lesson the hard way. Something she will never get over. Anyway, yeah, I'll leave a note on the owners door. The owner is really nice and loves Panthro a lot.

Lamp rewiring

Hey All,
I used to take old lamps to Marshall Electric on Western south of Howard, but they have closed up. Any recommendations for a great place to get lamps re wired?
Thanks!

  • I second Uptown Arts Council's post. I had an old lamp rewired at the Community Glue Workshop at Edgewater Workbench last month, for free. I brought my own parts (which cost next to nothing), but they have lamp parts on hand as well. The next workshop is on May 21.

    On Ashland just north of Montrose on the west side of the street is a shop that does all manor of antique lamps. Their hours vary but they do good work, a little pricy....

Thanks for a kind act of kindness

Special thank you to the person who found my CTA card, which I dropped at the Morse L stop around 9 a.m. Tuesday en route to work. Returning to the Morse L stop on my way home that afternoon, I asked the station attendant “if anyone turned in…” And he held up my card with my name and face on it. I didn’t even have to show an ID to claim my card.

What a great neighborhood.

Begging For Food

Bill Morton is hosting a community meeting and needs food donations from local businesses. Expecting 100 - 150 attendees, so any size or variations of taste is very much appreciated! Community Forum at Living Water Community Church. Please call the Rogers Park Chamber of Commerce at (773) 850-0049.

    So at this point I guess I could start my own posts attacking the alderman.

  • How interesting. Is PG speaking up for the little chamber that can't beg food from its own members? Does PG hang around with someone who dresses up in religious drag? Why does PG talk about attacking the alderman?

Lost Dog

I'm posting for a neighbor who lost a medium-sized, tan boxer with a white stripe, wearing a purple harness near the Howard and Sheridan gas station. She responds to Peg/ Pegg. Has anyone seen a wandering dog??

  • Helen NoH North of Howard for 55 + years

    Apparently she's heading south. Last seen at Chase and Sheridan.

  • Thank you, Taylor. Y'all are super awesome neighbors. God willing someone will find her and call me.

  • Taylor a super nice couple took her in near where I lost her.

As the president of the Rogers Park Chamber of Commerce continues to spread false information about the CHA Target proposal, items like this are good to keep in mind.

What is going in on the construction site on Morse across from Mayne Stage

    @RP guy - what does the Alderman have to say about the unfinished and un-repaired garage - this is an eyesore and not acceptable.

EB Rogers park brunch?

With the weather warming up, how about a Twisted Tapas Sunday brunch for the EB friends?

  • Uptown Arts Council Director: Uptown Arts Council - Jeffrey Littleton

    I never understood the whole Joe Lake thing...it just seemed like an awful way to spend your retirement, bickering online and manually aggregating the news of a city he no longer lives in. Its a cautionary tale maybe?

    Waaaay back before there was EB or even Facebook Joe Lake was the major thorn in the side of a "developer-friendly" Ald. Matlak, the predecessor to Ald. Waguespack in Bucktown.

    I've been accused of being a thorn in the side of a developer-friendly Alderman, in a weird and limited way I am like the younger Joe Lake before he became an over-posting creepy dude with a LOT of time on his hands serving up online condescension by the bucket-full.

    I hope he is happier nowadays.
