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...

  • ward greenleaf Smokey and the Bandit, Hooper, Cannonball Run...

    Thank you all

Looking for home cleaning service

Does anyone have any recommendations for an affordable, trustworthy house cleaner? Thanks in advance!

  • BerkeleyGirl Winnemac Park

    Gingerella - green, pays living wage... I live in a 1,500+ sq. ft. 2-bed/1-bath flat, and my monthly service is usually $75 or $90.

  • I have a family member who cleans. She's amazing. Most of her clients are from the suburbs so she would love to get some in the area to avoid long travels. She's very dedicated, and does a very good job both with tiny and massive houses. If you're interested, send me an email. I don't just want to publicly post her number. She also doesn't charge hourly but per house, depending on size so she'd come give you an estimate prior to cleaning.

Huge explosion?

Any one hear a large explosion sound this morning at about 512am? Anyone know what happened? Woke us up and didn't necessarily sound like fireworks. Over around Kimball Milwaukee Diversey area

  • Probably a transformer, they make a hell of a noise when they go.

  • I don't know about this one, but I was outside at Kedzie and Belle Plain last Saturday and a massive explosion when off under a car. Looked like some people took off down an alley. It didn't seem to do much other than set the alarm off. Some kind of large firework I imagine. Someone said somebody has been planting these under cars and then running off. I had heard a similar noise outside of my apartment about a week before. Keep an eye out.

Baby chickens

A couple of young chickens have found their way into my garden. Is anyone missing them? Or know if there's a coop in the St Louis/ Medill area? Thanks :)

Car fires

I woke up Saturday at 2am to a car on fire on Drake street. Thought maybe someone left a cigarette butt in their car and after calling 911 went back to bed. i was awoken at 530am to a car on the same street that was lit on fire! 2 cars in one night.

My wife overheard the cops tell the fire department it was the 7th one of the night in the neighborhood. Anyone know of any other details about who did this??


  • My car was set on fire Saturday morning around 5:30 am at 2130-2190 n drake :/

  • Melissa peck armitage and Central Park

    I have never heard of this happening! I'm so sorry to everyone who has had to deal with this!

Alderman Santiago has some explaining to do.

Alderman Santiago, who I voted for in the last election, has brought some very disappointing attention to Logan Square. Alderman, I hope you see this post and offer your constituents an appropriate explanation for your actions.


  • Roast 'er next election. Then she can watch the Cubs on TV like the rest of us who don't make over 100K for part-time work. Her sense of entitlement is astounding.

  • She should be ashamed of herself, I hope voters in her ward - most of whom make nowhere near her paltry $116k a year - remember whose side she really is on come elections.

Elston and Addison shooting

My friends just witnessed a shooting outside Pet Supply Plus.
Black shooter in a dark colored SUV got out and ran up to a white Jeep Cherokee.
The jeep driver exited and ran, the shooter shot multiple times into the Jeep.
Passenger exited and wound up on the ground by the front doors of Pet Supply Plus. The shooter left and the driver came back and drove off, leaving his passenger .
Anyone else hear anything ? Police radio ??

  • Hell. With "friends" like that, who needs enemies.

    These punks just don't get it. And it seems even being dumped somewhere , by a "friend"after being shot doesn't phase them. Zero reality check.

  • ThatGirl

    Really? He lived? Wow, how do you know he went to jail?

Gang graffiti

My previous post was removed, so I'm reposting. This is the N/E corner of drake and cullom. I'm sure the school cameras have something

  • I don't know if those boys in the video would survived my shoe in my hand. Or my purse, it can become a nice heavy thing to use. My god.

  • @Gil.

    Wow, very sad. However, not surprised.

New LED street lighting

Noticed on N Drake @ Montrose that they had replaced all the street lighting to really bright white LED lighting vs N Drake north of Montrose... was this a city initiative or something this area "district" or whatnot is implementing ? (sorry, not a native so don't know lingo yet) Never been a fan of the dark, orange lighting... it did little to illuminate past the center of street.

  • @ ABC - The street lamps face straight down and have no lateral reveal so pose no risk of snow build up. The real concern is converting traffic lights to LED for the reasons you stated. So, worry not, the new street lights provide the same spread all year and should make the snow on the ground gleam even whiter.

  • @TF, you're absolutely right. No issues w street lamps, they are eerily bright and not a concern. Thanks for the gentle EB noogie.
