    Police will not fix this. The problems are social constructs that need to be voted in to see real changes.

    They definitely won't fix this without a technology update after they've fairly recently consolidated the detective u it's they are now 8.1 miles away.. yet still tied to their desks for all paper

We scared off car thieves tonight

Dear neighbors:
We observed a young man trying to break into cars tonight about 3:00 a.m. right in front of our house. My fiancee yelled "Police!" real loud and it scared him away. Ha Ha
Our whole square block is VERY DARK because of at least four streetlights out, and I believe we have become a target for hoodlums who can see how dark it is. This is the 6600 north, square block bounded by Albion, Greenview, North Shore, and...

Our whole square block is VERY DARK because of at least four streetlights out, and I believe we have become a target for hoodlums who can see how dark it is. This is the 6600 north, square block bounded by Albion, Greenview, North Shore, and Newgard. I have asked repeatedly to have the streetlights fixed, but if anyone in this square block would like to help, please e-mail or call the 49th Ward, Alderman Moore's office. We have requested these lights be fixed at least THREE times. Why help these rotten thieves by not having adequate street lights? Please help. Thanks, neighbors.

    When a neighbor sees something suspicious , they call 911.

    .............They then alert the other block residents.

    .............THEY in turn call 911.

    We have received excellent responses using this strategy.

    Yes, we did have a relatively quiet summer, Wazzap, particularly compared to last year. Last year from January 1 to Aug 22 there were 13 incidents with shooting victims in RP and this year there have been only 7. Plus, last year the shootings took place widely all over the ward. This year, most areas of the ward have been much more quiet. I'm making no predictions about what will happen in the future, but I'm grateful that this year has been quieter than last.

    You've mentioned on here before that you dislike Rogers Park so much that you never step foot anywhere north and west of Loyola. Let's leave these judgments and assessments to those of us who haven't been engaging in a years-long effort to speak ill of Rogers Park on local social media.

    BTW, shooting incidents have also been down in your ward, Edgewater. Last year there were 8 incidents with shooting victims in Edgewater from Jan 1 to Aug. 22. This year there have been 4 during the same period.

    If you'd like to celebrate the fact that you had 4 and we had 7, or that you had 8 last year and we had 13, go right ahead. But it all becomes a little meaningless when your ward's Jan-August period last year had exactly the same number of incidents with shooting victims as we had this year.

In need a room on the ground floor for about a month or 6 weeks?

I live in East Rogers Park. I may need to have surgery on my hip and will be on crutches and a hip brace for 6 weeks. Does anyone know of anything that may be available to rent where I can stay. Must be ground level and safe building. I'm scared because I currently live on a 3rd floor walk up and that won't work on crutches and in a brace. Thanks!

My garage was broken into 6:30am this morning (Saturday) - 6600 block of N Glenwood (alley between Glenwood and Newgard). Guy got in through a window and rummaged around - went through glove compartment in car and through couple of bags.Nothing of note taken. Neighbor heard the noise and shouted and guy jumped the fence and ran south down the alley. Description of the guy is black male,slim,about 6ft tall wearing grey hoodie (that was pulled over face so couldn't get face or age description) and long pair of jeans. He opened a bottle of tonic water I had in the garage and drank from it. I told the police this when I filed the report thinking maybe they could get DNA and see who the guy is.....but they were not interested in this.

  • mcleary Lifetime resident Edgewater/Rogers Park

    And come to think of it, had Bill in Rogers Park run into the crook in his garage and the crook had a gun, this could have had a different ending. Then I'm sure the Police would have been all over the bottle of tonic. At least he filed the police report, reported it etc which is more than I can say for the people who say "did anyone hear gun shots" and don't call 911.

    We seem to have spate of car and Garage break-ins in the neighborhood. This week in alley behind me I found envelope with car registration info,etc. I called the number found in the envelope and it was a cab driver who said his car had been broken into this week on the 1400 block of Arthur. Another neighbor in 1300 block of Albion said she saw 6ft, AfricanAmerican late teen early 20s wearing red and yellow hoodie checking out cars in middle of weekday afternoon. She lost sight of him and then saw him ransacking Neighbor's car. Police called but offender got away. And one additional note from my original post: Chicago Police detective did follow-up with me re my break-in. No suspect yet. So if you see guys checking out cars on the street and looking inside the vehicles, testing doors, etc. call 911 to get police presence.

Fatal bacteria found in stagnant puddles

We eventually located the original owner who had adopted the dog from Chicago Animal Care and Control but who had been forced to give the dog away when moving to a rental home that would not allow dogs.

In June, I posted about a lost dog and received many kind comments from EB readers. We eventually located the original owner who had adopted the dog from Chicago Animal Care and Control but who had been forced to give the dog away when moving to a rental home that would not allow dogs. The dog was subsequently lost and I could not track down its most recent owner. We fell in love with the dog and decided to keep it. According to the original owner, his name was Cody and he was about to turn two in August.

Two weeks ago, Cody became very lethargic and lost his appetite. We took him to the vet the next day when we realized that he was not just under the weather. He went to the vet on Tuesday, was admitted for tests and died of acute liver and kidney failure overnight on Friday. By Monday, lab results had all been returned with the confirmation that Cody died of leptospirosis.

I am posting this because leptospirosis is a bacteria that is passed in the urine of an infected dog (or rodent) into puddles and then the puddle water is drunk by another animal. The incubation period can vary from several days to several weeks. We will never know if Cody drank from an infected puddle while he was lost and on the street, or if he got it from a wading pool at a dog park. We just want to make sure that dog owners are careful to make sure your pet does not drink from puddles when outside.

Vets are seeing a spike in lepto cases in Chicago, possibly because of the rise in the rat population. It should be noted that, while it is exceptionally rare, lepto can be picked up by little kids who play in puddles with infected water and then put their hands into their mouths. Cody was a great dog and we miss him, but more importantly, we want to be sure that other people don't lose their pets as well.
