A man drove up on my car by Pratt near S&C Electric and made threats. He was Hispanic possibly 25 to 30 years of age, drove a late model black 325 BMW with a plate Luxor Motors. A call was placed to 911, but as usual they are extremely slow to ensure safety. This was around 7 am. He got out of his car and began waving his arms, prior to driving in a reckless manor.

Anyone interested in a Cadence Electronic Treadmill (1990 era)?
It works but has been used although not recently. It's about 6' x 30" in size. Currently it is in Evanston, not far from here.

Yesterday, a common parakeet, also known as a budgie, was found in the grass at Albion and Greenview. Its foster mom has posted on Facebook in the Rogers Park Neighborhood News group. If its yours, you'll have to provide some information about the bird, such as the color, so she'll know that it is yours.

Found intact male kitty around 5am took to my job i wrk at a animal hospital. Had him scanned had microchip. Good! Found owner contacted him sounded indifferent about me taking him in. Returned kitty to o having him spent the day with us . Great kitty . O then told me i was very wrong into stealing him . I didnt steal him he was on the streets. Told o its not safe he could hv been hit by car or attacked by other cat. Wow o accused me of stealing the cat who he loves so much. Then keep your loved cat indoors because when he doesnt come home hes dead or taken by someone else who would hv not contacted the microchip company fed him and called him. Ungreatfull piece of a person. Sorry if this sounds rude.

Seems several PB approved items have been placed on hold or cancelled. Seemingly 750 k in on hold/ cancelled items over 6 PB elections.
105k for 15 bike racks.
Bike lanes on Clark from Howard to Albion unknown $$.
Coblestone replacement cancelled due to cost.
Sheridan road pedestrian safety study was cancelled.
Looking at the PB site it is not clear what happens to allocated funds that are not used for the Democratically voted funds.

There seem to be a lot of dog owners allowing their dogs off leash in public places like the beach. Just yesterday I could count 4 different owners letting their dogs run amok on the sand during my morning walk. One of them even did it's business and the owner didn't clean up. This is illegal, right?

Neighbors, I have found out that a recovery home for women is set to open at 1715 W Chase. I understand that a nun and her mission purchased the property. Does anyone know if the community had an opportunity to raise questions about another social service agency opening? I would hope our alderman would want input for yet another business opening in a residential area.
Moving into the area, will my kind friends on this site inform about this neighborhood. I. Have an 5 year Autistic grand child that I enjoy taking to the park. Is it safe to do so? Any info would be helpful. Both negative and positive. Thank you.
The Rogers Park Library hosted a Reptile and Amphibian Meet and Greet on July 11. An overflow crowd waited on the second floor before the doors opened. Over 125 children and parents attended this presentation from Dave DaNaso's World of Reptiles. There were no tarantulas, but Jesse Hotaling, our branch library assistant manager had her hands full with a 14 foot long reticulated python. This was sponsored by the Friends of the Rogers Park Library. This is one of items that we provided supplementary funds for the 2017 Summer Learning Challenge. We raised funds from book sales, and from generous individual donors.

Jimmy Johns. Placed a call last night regarding possible shots fired near a school and first call it was stated the police were on the way. Nothing. If OJ was in Chicago he would be striving an old Ford Bronco on Lake Shore Drive.

Looking for any referrals for remodeling our kitchen and bathroom. Mid-range. Kitchen is 200SF, Bathroom 50SF - in a 1910 single family. Updating but trying to fit with the house's craftsman-ish character. Already have kitchen and cabinet layout, bathroom is just replacing fixtures and finishes.
Always seems to be an abundance of knowledge and opinions on EB.
Thanks in advance!

WHO WILL HELP FORM A WATCH TO ESCORT DUCKLING TO SAFETY AFTER BIRTH?
I have discovered a nesting Mallard duck with 10 or so eggs residing in the parking lot of a Rogers Park High School.
Thing is, it's prohibited by federal law to capture, remove or disturb nesting ducks.
Also, they are 0.8 mile walk to the nearest water at North Shore Beach.
Wildlife rescue tells me, about 10 hours after birth, the mother duck will walk the ducklings on foot the entire way to water. Across Sheridan Road?
They will need escorts.
Does anyone have the time, motivation or know how to keep watch, and help on that day?

The Friends of the Rogers Park Library Sizzling Summer Book Sale made it on WGN Evening News Saturday, June 24, 2017. Funds raised from our book sales supplement our library's book budget so that additional children's books can be bought as well as books and materials to help students get their GED, or to speak English or with Job-Hunting. This year we are adding funds to the Chicago Public Library's Summer Learning Challenge. This summer, we will use the money to bring one additional program, a zoologist who will show live reptiles and arthropods. Last year Jesse Hotaling, our assistant branch manager, allowed a tarantula to crawl up her arm, and she may do it again this year! The Friends of the Rogers Park Library is proud of the many services offered by our staff. They are the reason we have book sale fundraisers twice a year to enrich the resources of our library that serves the Rogers Park Community. I hope you can join our effort to provide the resources our library needs.

My small/medium sized (about 10 lbs) grey and orange tabby Beebs (also comes to Bee or Beeber) somehow escaped our condo (Stratford House on Fargo) last night between 9 pm and 2 am. 3 yo female, spayed, chipped, no collar. Missing tiny piece of her right ear. Tabby "M" on her forehead. Long striped tail. Likes people (although she does bite) and may approach if called, but we prefer if you call immediately if you think you may have spotted her. REWARD FOR RETURN. Please share!!!!!!!!!! 708-214-7534

Readers may recall my post earlier this month, Vote for Rogers Park, the Reader poll in which our neighborhood was in the running as best in three categories. We didn't win for overall neighborhood but did for diversity and affordability.
