    If you need to borrow money, you'd probably go to a bank. But for the wife of one elected official, getting a loan was as easy as tapping into her husband's campaign fund. If you need to borrow money, you'd probably go to a bank.

    More often than not the CPD only turns on the siren when they're about 100 feet away from the intersection and even then it's couple of "woo woo" instead of the continuous siren like a fire truck and the then the CPD expect motorists with green light to stop their cars on a dime. Pay close attention to this next time you see CPD responding to an emergency. They will have their lights on but you can't see the lights if they're approaching from the other direction than you're going. The only time you may hear continuous siren is they're responding to a gun related crime.

  • Heard that the civilian driver was DUI. BTW, CPD officers drive squads, not cruisers... #CPDLingo

    Bayless Disciple Opening 'Dream' Albany Park Restaurant Next Week
    Anselmo Ramirez spent 13 years as a line cook over at Rick Bayless' Frontera Grill & Topolobampo, and the Mexican immigrant is only days away from achieving his dream. But on Thursday night, the 35 year-old's eyes swelled with joy, holding back the tears while reading a tweet from his mentor, with Bayless writing that he's proud of his former star employee.

Neighbors, I need your help , my 17 year old son got run over while riding his bike, by a white BMW suv license plate number 5484454, on Irving park and Albany yesterday around 6:40ish pm. Luckily, my son was not badly hurt just scraped here and there, but what makes me mad is that the ahole did not bother to stop and kept going. if you happen to know who this person is please tell him or her to do the right thing and turn themselves in. Thanks to the 2 guardian angels who helped my son until the ambulance and police arrived. To the culprit who I'm pretty sure must have been texting, I will find you and then I will sue you.

    cejon - if you decide to be your own detective, please remember that you will not know who is connected to who, or who will learn that you are looking for them.

    just a word of caution. think about whether this is something that should be left to a professional.

    be well and stay safe,

  • Bville Cat Lady the cicadas are deafening this time of year

    The Tony's in Melrose Park has smelled of bad fish for years.

    The one in Lincoln Square (former Dominick's) does not smell (yet?). But from now on I may only buy packaged goods.

  • Joshua Still a cynic, now in Ravenswood.

    Uhoh. This whack job is back again. Overgrown rose bushes, better call the city. Maybe I'll just stop by myself and give it a trim, free flowers for the girlfriend.

  • ? The Dept of Conservation? Because there is a Tree of Heaven seedling? The photo is sideways and I do not see roses.

  • It's a tiger lily at the top right hand corner. I don't see a problem either?

Found bird

Hi everyone. If you lost your parakeet, we found it! It was found on the 4300 block of N. Richmond. Please let me know if it's yours so you can come pick it up.

  • It flew in the window and we caught it in a box. It is very much alive.

  • If it's a blue parakeet, I've been worried about it since last week, I put a decorative cage out (it was all I had) hoping it would fly in. Hope you find the owner! Great rescue!

    The 12 Best Tacos In Chicago
    Wars have been won and lost over the best place to grab a taco in Chicago (and many of them took place in my apartment, at 1 a.m.) Tacos are the delicious, hand-held comfort food of Chicago's most budget-minded, health-conscious and self-indulgent diners alike.

    I was underwhelmed by Antique Taco. Tamale Spaceship should be on the list!

  • We are new to the area, but we like a place called Taqueria 5 de Mayo. They also have great burritos, chips and guacamole.
