Free Moving Boxes

We have a ton of moving boxes. They were used once and still in great condition. Message me to arrange to pick them up.

  • Send me a private message or text me at 312-772-5539 to arrange picking them up. I have about 50 boxes, enough to go around. But, I would like to get rid of them all today.

  • Someone just took the last boxes. I didn't expect them to go so fast.

Shooting Drake and Lyndale

Does anyone have any info on what happened last night around 2 am on the corner of Drake and Lyndale. We woke up to what sounded like several gunshots and police cars...

  • Mark L Logan Square homeowner

    My wife says she heard shots too (we are across from the YMCA) but neither of us know what happened.

  • any such name live, walk, & cook in logan square

    I live right there and was woken up from a dead sleep a little after 12am (probably 12:10 or 12:15); I have been working insane hours so was very disoriented and had no idea what I'd heard, I assumed it was a car crash. But it definitely was not at 2am, it was a couple hours earlier.

  • Thanks I have a family member that works for CPD I asked them to look into it. I'll keep you posted.

  • This is just the federal gun charge and I believe he has to serve 80% of that sentence. He is also charged in Cook County, so hopefully they can put him away for even longer.

Where do you buy your flowers?

It's ALMOST flower season and I need a ton of flowers. Any suggestions on where I can go for affordable flowers that won't kill the bees?

    Farmers Market on Elston not only has a large, healthy selection but a knowledgable staff. They can answer any questions you have about the plants, bushes or trees they sell.

  • I called Burpee’s customer service on 03-30-16 and they verified via phone that they do NOT treat their seeds and plants with any pesticides - they do NOT use Neonicitinoids.
    Yay!

    re Non-GMO policy - https://www.burpee.com/gardenadvicecenter/about/gmo-policy/nongmo-policy.html

    from Burpee customer service via email -

    “We do not treat our seeds with neonicotinoid pesticides or any pesticides; they are milled, washed, dried, and packaged. If you are concerned about the use of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers in the production of our seed, we recommend using our organic seed found at http://www.burpee.com/organic-gardening/. All of our organic seeds are produced from plants that have not been treated with any synthetic pesticides or fertilizers, and all of Burpee's organic seeds have been certified organic by the Oregon Tilth (Oregon Tilth Homepage)

    “With regards to our plants, we use integrated pest management in our greenhouses and only apply pesticides according to the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture rules for pesticide application.  We make every effort in our production methods to not harm bees.

    “Burpee is the nation's leading purveyor of both heirloom and hybrid vegetables seeds and transplants. Burpee purchases seeds from a select list of suppliers throughout the world including Seminis. However, none of the seeds purchased from Seminis or any other supplier are GMO. Burpee has never bred or sold GMO seeds and does not intend to do so in the future.”

    Not sure exactly what "integrated pest management" means and I think it's a term that is meant to be vague and sortof much-encompassing. I think it means they try everything else before using any chemical pesticides on their plants.

Is this your dog?

I saw a female pit bull with no collar, running around by Monroe elementary school. It was between Lawndale and Monticello on Schubert today at 11am. I tried to get the dog to come to me but it kept running off.
I took a picture but this was as close as I could get.

Found cat

I found a cat in our yard and he is SUPER friendly, so thinking he's not feral. He followed me into our garage and I have him some food. No collar, will check for a chip tomorrow night. White and gray spots. Let me know if this sounds like your kitty!

  • Monica Over 15 years in the 60622 zip code

    Thanks for helping him. I hope you find his person. Keep us posted what you find out!

  • He was a neighbor's kitty! They came by the next day and got him and he was VERY happy to see his family!

  • What was their story?
