Notice: car broken into in gated lot in alley behind Kimball b/t Schubert/Wrightwood

Hi there, notifying EBers that a car in my building's gated parking lot was broken into to, not exactly sure when. I'm just south of Schubert on Kimball. Change/ipod was stolen so not a huge loss but be aware peeps!

  • LD Thanks for the alert. Was the car locked or did the bad guy break the window? Did this happen during the day or middle of the night? We all need to stay alert, thanks for the reminder.

  • LD

    I don't have much info as it was not my car, sorry - the window was not broken so my neighbor probably left the door unlocked.

Found Kryponite Bike Lock

Is this yours? Lying in the grass in front of 3329 W Schubert.

  • I did lose my bike lock that looks almost identical to this one around there on Sunday night / Monday morning sometime around 1:00am.

    The only thing that looks different in this picture is that this lock looks a bit longer than mine, but it's exactly the same brand/style.

    I still have my key. Perhaps I could come and see if it works?

Community Garden

I live right next door to a community garden. This may be a stupid question, but how does one go about acquiring some gardening space in a community garden? Is it first come first serve? I have no idea how this works and my google searches are not giving me any helpful information.

Brown/Gray Cat Spotted near Belmont/Kimball

I heard a distressed meowing outside my house and saw this poor thing. It started raining so it ran to huddle under my porch. I came out to see what was wrong and to give her(?) some food. She kept meowing and rubbing up against my leg. A huge sweetheart. If you're missing this kitty, I last spotted her at the corner of Drake and Henderson. I can't take her in because I have a cat already and this cat might already have a home and just lost her way. Just a heads up.

  • Hi Zoe..Tree House is no kill . There are many "no kill" shelters and rescues. They can only take a fraction..a very small fraction of the animals needing homes. To put it very simplistically... if the no kills could take all the animals there would be no reason for any animal to be killed. Pet Overpopulation is a very large problem ..along with strays and ferals many people don't make a life long commitment to their pets and/or dont get their animals spayed and neutered http://www.americanhumane.org/animals/adoption-pet-care/issues-information/pet-overpopulation.html

  • Check Lost Cats of Illinois on Facebook. I almost recall seeing someone looking for a cat in that area.

Power outage?

I woke up to a loud noise and no power. Anybody else? Going to call ComEd.

  • Service expected to return by 9:30am. Message said 58 houses effected.

  • When pole-mounted transformers go out, they sound like a small bomb ... It can happen when they get old.

New on the 4100 block of drake...

Just moved in on the 4100 block of north Drake. We love our house and have been doing a lot to make it better. Yesterday the slumlord next door tried to get confrontational with me on my property line and fence. I hope this gets easier.

Garage Fire

Garage fire tonight around 6:00 on Monticello (near the intersection of Monticello and Wrightwood). This is the third garage fire in as many years, all within a couple blocks of each other...2+ years ago a garage fire a couple houses north of tonights and a year ago a couple blocks west...? Anyone know causes?

  • When I first moved into the neighborhood it was a 'gang' thing. It needs to be watched. Thanks for posting...

  • On July 4th, 2013 a garage burnt down a few houses down from me, on St. Louis near Parker, so also in the same general area. Given the date I assumed it was due to mishandled fireworks.

  • Anton Irie 4 Years And Still Unsure About LS

    Could also be bums squatting in it (starting fires for warmth or misusing the electrical connections) or just bad electrical to begin with. Oily rags from car maintenance + an electrical arc = boom.

What was being filmed at about 3:00 pm outside the Payless on the hairpin building?

  • ErikaM Blue-Line identified

    Ad for Payless. That explains the pots of fake flowers and people moving away the snow and muck in the a.m.
