Road Rage Man

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.

Has Your Parakeet Flown the Coop?

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.

  • Yeah, you can only get surrounding neighborhoods on Nextdoor. The person who lost the parakeets is in what they call Edgewater West, at Granville & Lakewood. I don't know if they ever got them back, or if they are monitoring that thread, but I'll put a link to this thread in a post there.

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.

  • Catherine NO!

    I think it's ok to vent, Tess, when you know you did the right thing.

  • You totally did the right thing, and the guy is a jerk, If you find him again -- keep him. Some people don't deserve pets... especially knowing the cat isn't neutered.

What happens to PB funds when the project is put on hold or cancelled?

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.

Off leash dogs on the beach

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?

  • Can't understand how Lib, who's only post ever was about illegal drinking on the beach, would thumb down my comment. Double standard on laws much, Lib?

  • Pedro G. Hillary lost, hoorah!

    At what time was that, Donald? Because I was there yesterday with my dog (no leash same as always) and I didn't see any cop.
    I'm going to the beach in a few minutes.

Recovery Home @ 1715 W Chase

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.

  • Bruce_ Comment by Live From Rogers Park, whom you've mute

    We employed at risk people and those in transitional situations. They were often my coworkers.
    I question the location, proximity to a park, the quantity of units in RP and stability offered.

    We are seeing national failures in this effort.

  • Tired of Liars Sick and Tired of Self Serving Lying Politicians

    Recovery homes like this can be beneficial.

    Rather than worrying about the residents utilizing the park, I would be more concerned that the recovery house would attract drug trafficking to the area as "The Womens Center" at Ashland & Lake often does.

    Similarly, I have seen and reported suspect behaivior near the Trilogy Center at Greenleaf & Glenwood where I have witnessedindividuals who appear to be cajoling patients into "relapsing" into the substance abuse which their treatment is supposed to be addressing.

No tarantulas but how about a reticulated python?

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.

Whats faster a Jimmy John's delivery or a 911 call for police help?

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.

  • Why would you have anything to do with a flaming @--hole like Jimmy John?

    "Possible shots"? At night? On July 5th? Haha. Is it possible that they might have run a squad car through the neighborhood that you didn't see?

    On the other hand, if your actual situation had been "man with a gun" or "man firing shots across the street" or "I just got mugged by a man with a gun" etc., etc., the police response would have been quite different. At least, I think so.

Kitchen & Bathroom remodel

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!

  • Tony with Tripp Builders (773) 870-2652 recently remodeled our 1930s kitchen in our 1917 single family home and he did an unbelievably great job. He's also remodeled 2 of our bathrooms over the years. Very honest and good to work with. Does most of work himself so may take a little longer, but well worth it for the finished product. Can figure things out with old homes. Highly recommend.

    Illinois House Approves Historic 32% Tax Increase " Alex Jones' Infowars: There's a war on for your mind!
    With Illinois, which on Saturday morning entered its third fiscal year without a budget, facing a catastrophic downgrade, late on Sunday evening the Illinois House approved the most controversial element of a budget package, a tax hike which will increase the income tax rate by 32% from 3.75% to 4.95%, and the corporate income tax rate from 5.25% to 7%, to try and end a historic budget impasse.

    Where did the money from the last temporary income tax increase go? Spent and not on the solution for the pensions, schools and debt. Our leaders can't balance a budget is the problem and giving them more to spend hasn't proven effective.

    @ Good neighbor, I forgot to address your point about population loss.

    I think you're implying that people are leaving because of (high?) taxes. But taxes are only one of a long laundry list of reasons for population decline in the state. Here are some others:

    @ Good neighbor, I forgot to address your point about population loss.

    I think you're implying that people are leaving because of (high?) taxes. But taxes are only one of a long laundry list of reasons for population decline in the state. Here are some others:

    1st, our neighboring states are losing population too and they have different (and some have higher) taxes. Actually in general, growth in almost all states in the US has slowed because of the reasons I give below

    2nd, there is a reduction in "replacement" population: with Millennials delaying many things in life like having kids (or an increasing amount deciding not to have kids at all), that means the replacement fertility rate is way down in recent years, which is a big contributor (albeit all over the country). There's also less immigration to the state.

    3rd, African American families are among the biggest out-migrators, and a lot of that has to do with violence (in Chicago especially) and lack of social services (downstate especially) due to increased government austerity and the budget crisis

    4th, people are moving to warmer climates. Seniors especially.

    So if taxes are the reason that people are leaving, I do think we should look at that, but not only in the context of all these other factors. Also we would need to ask about the KINDS of taxes are too high (personal income vs. property vs. business vs. sales vs. some of all of the above), and WHO is moving because of high taxes (low-income folks, middle-income folks, high-income folks, etc?). Saying people are moving because of high taxes COULD be part of an issue, but in order to come up with a solution or even know if lowering income taxes that we're talking about would solve the problem we need to know more.

DUCKLING WATCH / WALK???

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?

  • When I was a kid, my brothers had baby snapping turtles for a while. They were kept in one of those plastic child pools. I have no idea where they came from or how long they had them before setting them free.

  • Joan M. Back in Lincoln Square and liking it.

    @ EveryBlock neighbor

    Rest assured, there are not hundreds of common snapping turtles in that little pond. It simply wouldn't support anything like that number. Ironically, when they removed 3 largish old snappers (native to our area) in 2014 in a supposed attempt at management, they left plenty of red-eared sliders (non-native) and koi/goldfish (non-native). Give the people what they want, I suppose.

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.

urgent!!! missing cat!!! reward!!!!

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

  • Helen NoH North of Howard for 55 + years

    I wouldn't have either, Nan, but someone else had posted a link to the thread about Beebs on Katie's FB page on Rogers Park Neighborhood News (also on FB). Beebs is just a different and cute name that I remembered reading about her elsewhere.

  • I am so happy to hear Katie
    has found her little Poohs.
    Cats are some finicky, cute
    strange little animals, which
    I guess is why I love
    them so much myself.
    Now that she is back at
    home, please keep an 👀
    on her.
