Possible stolen auto

Dark blue Jeep Liberty. 4 flats, busted windshield, multiple parkers affixed. Reported it on 311. Carry on...

  • Alderman rosa is useless when it comes to getting city services done in his ward. I reported a car that was abandoned, had been t-boned, was parked along yellow painted curb, hadn't moved in 3 months. His superintendent promised they'd get it towed right away. 4 months later it finally moved.

    It appears rosa's only power as an alderman is to collect a check.

    Gary J, it's a part time job. Lower your expectations!

Gunshots or fireworks?

Been hearing a lot of pops tonight over near Jensen Park.... gunfire or firecrackers?

Anyone know?


  • Lots and lots of fireworks. The people across the street from me put on somewhat professional shows in their back alley on July 4th. It seems they're enjoying themselves tonight as well.

    Nothing to worry about.

Use caution disposing of gift boxes...

Going through the alley this weekend, I'm noticing all the television boxes etc. Remember, that stuff is going to sit there for days, giving bad guy a heads up. You could always put the 300" tv box in that jag off neighbors garbage across the alley...

Merry Christmas!!

  • @LauraLiz easy solution. Deposit your holiday trash in their bins.

    Chris: Except I don't know who does it. Also, I try not to be a jerk. We have started pulling them behind our gate until pickup days except this week the alderman's notice said to leave bins out due to holiday pickup schedule changes. So, naturally, everyone puts their junk in our bins. The old owner of our house likely encouraged this behavior but now we have to start discouraging it.

Found little orange kitty

This little one came meowing up to me in my front yard (near Central Park and Palmer) yesterday just before the snow. I invited him in to keep him safe from the storm, and he's super sweet. He's small and I think pretty young. I don't think he belongs to anyone, since he's not neutered, but wanted to check here to see if anyone recognizes him. I'll take him in for a checkup and a procedure if no one claims him, I love him already and I just might keep him forever.

  • he chose you!!

  • There are definitely some orange tabbies around the 'hood. If he's a teenager, then he's not Tiger. Glad you're rescuing him!

Woke up and the smell of skunk was super strong! I dragged the dog out for a walk and it was like "skunk fest"! I thought cold weather made these things go away. I saw them at berteau and drake, a few on St. Louis, belle plaine and Central Park. Anybody else noticing them? This was 0345 so maybe they're busier at that time.

  • Sorry, they aren't rodents but still serve their purpose. Generally they'll move along in a few days...

    Thank you all
