screaming man near pratt beach

hi all, anyone else notice the episodic screaming going on around pratt beach over the last 3-4 days? there's a man (50s-60s, grey hair, black coat) walking around from park bench to park bench, clearly with some kind of mental disorder. he'll start shaking faster and faster before screaming at the top of his lungs. super loud. he's out there yelling from 10 am well into 2-3 a.m. i feel awful for him, is there some sort of mental health service hotline/clinic i can call? i don't know what can be done really, and i don't want to call the police if he's not harming anything other than my sleep.

Drones in my neighborhood?

I need an outsiders perspective here. Would you support consumer Drones flying over your neighborhood in Rogers Park capturing footage of illegalities going on in areas known for crime? Seriously, I'm considering a consumer Drone with the capacity to fly a few miles and capture ultra high resolution video of illegalities in 'hotspot" areas. I'm leaning towards the DF-X6 model (see attached). All this would be in an effort to turn around the South Side community I live in so that the quality of life is improved. What say you? Is this a crazy Buck Rogers ambition here or is it something you would support?

    And the alderman has a whole Entourage here too. Not just all amateurs!

It's hooker season again

They seemed to disappear as winter arrived. Just noticed they are drifting back into my neighborhood again. Two of them were actually sitting on the back steps (leading to the basement) of my building just before noon on July 4. I came back a couple hours later and there was a wet nap and an unused condom in a wrapper lying on the steps. Nice. Saw another one ambling down my street with a couple of male friends the next morning just before 6:00 a.m.

My question is, what's the most effective way of getting these, ahem, ladies out? Police? (311? 911?) Alderman? Any other suggestions?

Howard "L" Station Cleaning

I was wondering if anyone else noticed how nasty the Howard station is lately? I know it's NEVER spotless and many "L" stations never are but I feel like it's been in rare form. Everything is filthy and smells of urine among other things.

Does anyone know if the cleaning has been halted or lessened due to the budget issues? Is there anything that we can do to address this? It's terrible that people have to travel through this day in and day out.

  • The station is definitely dirtier recently. People have been working overtime to urinate, and even defecate, in corners.
    I sent in a complaint to CTA customer service regarding the two restrooms on the first floor (South entrance) that they will not allow customers to use, as I see this as...

    The station is definitely dirtier recently. People have been working overtime to urinate, and even defecate, in corners.
    I sent in a complaint to CTA customer service regarding the two restrooms on the first floor (South entrance) that they will not allow customers to use, as I see this as simply an issue of human dignity. It just makes sense for the CTA to provide restroom facilities that are clean and safe.
    As far as the homeless encampments in Uptown, I believe we should be looking for solutions there too. The nice part is, we can do both. Clean the Howard station and address the homeless encampment in Uptown.
    Thanks all.

  • maybe a Dear John letter is in order...or in this case "dear Joe Moore,
    I am writing to you about the pee stained Howard CTA I'd like to build a tall building on Touhy and Clark and I think I will invest $25 million in the community if you could ask the CTA to clean the train station at least 8 times a year"

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.

  • Thanks for the Uptown perspective Jeffey. Your concept of PB isn't quite right because you don't live here and actually participate in it. But your view from UPTOWN is understandable. If we did PB in your neighborhood we would find homes for the people who live in tents underneath the Lake Shore Drive overpasses. That's the first thing we would do and I am surprised that you aren't working on that Jeffey.

  • Helen NoH North of Howard for 55 + years

    Live, the $300,000 Jeffrey referred to is obviously the $300,000 of menu money that the alderman keeps control of for cost overruns on PB projects and emergencies.

    Hi, Sorry but I forgot that not everyone would see the reply to Nan which I sent out within an hour of Little Boy returning. I got a call from my neighbor across the street saying he was there. I had had 3 other calls which turned out to be other black cats. But when I saw his back shaved leg, I knew it was him. His cone and collar were off. He's in good condition, just thinner. He's beginning to act like himself. At first he just slept a lot. I want to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart. The people of a Rogers Park are incredible. Such caring people! This correspondence, the neighbors, merchants, alderman, Chamber...we are thrilled that Little Boy is back, and so glad we moved here. Thank you all for your concern & prayers.

Lost cat (Little Boy) found!

I posted this in the existing thread, but it's not sending me an email notification that a new comment was posted, so just in case it's not notifying anyone else - I'm posting it here.

I guess Judy's so happy and relieved - she hasn't been back here to update, so I hope she won't mind if I report that Little Boy is back home - and in pretty good condition! I know (like me) many of you take a very personal interest when pets are missing. This poor guy who was recovering from surgery was gone for two weeks, so this is an especially happy (and lucky) ending.

Welcome home, LB!

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 Garciano RP is not a liberal utopia. Sorry.

    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.
