Anyone missing a cat?

Ran into this little guy around 11:30 on 4/16. I think it was a she, but I'm not sure. She was under the porch of the house on the se corner of touhy and Wolcott. She came up to me for attention but wanted nothing to do with my dog. I think she's someone's pet-coat was in beautiful condition, but no collar. Might be an indoor outdoor cat, but I thought I'd check just in case. Wry pretty yellow eyes and she's all black except for a streak of white on her chest

I invite you to attend a community meeting on biking in the 49th Ward. Community residents and I have been working with the City of Chicago's Department of Transportation (CDOT) on an expansion of the Divvy Bike Sharing program to the 49th Ward and the addition of new bike routes to the ward.

I invite you to attend a community meeting on biking in the 49th Ward. Community residents and I have been working with the City of Chicago's Department of Transportation (CDOT) on an expansion of the Divvy Bike Sharing program to the 49th Ward and the addition of new bike routes to the ward.

The meeting will be held on Thursday, April 17, 7:00 p.m., at the Field School auditorium, 7019 N. Ashland (between Lunt and Greenleaf). Enter through the Lunt entrance on the south side of the building.

Divvy bike sharing was introduced last year to downtown Chicago and many of the close-in neighborhoods.

Building on the success of the program, CDOT in December announced plans to add 175 stations throughout the City this year, soliciting recommendations on locations from bicyclists and community residents. Based on the input it received, CDOT developed a proposal for seven new bike stations in the 49th Ward. Though the current proposed expansion reaches only to Touhy Avenue, CDOT plans to install additional stations north of Touhy in the near future.

For a pdf that provides a map and photographs that show the precise locations of the proposed Divvy stations, visit:

CDOT will also present a proposed north-south bike route that will give cyclists a clear route through the 49th Ward connecting Evanston and Edgewater.

For maps that highlight the routes, click on the photos below or visit:

I urge you to attend the meeting to provide your input on both the Divvy Bike station and bike route proposals. If you are unable to attend the meeting, please feel free to share your comments with me by posting them here or emailing my office at ward49@cityofchicago.org

  • Need for a Change 20 years in Rogers Park

    I can't park my car to begin with due to excess parking pressure in East RP; an issue which Alderman Moore definitely doesn't care about, and now he wants to reduce the number of street parking spaces for his esoteric bike path concepts. In the meantime an ongoing gang war threatens the safety of our community and Moore has been more sensitive to the "poor underprivileged" criminal gang members than providing a permanent solution than he is in protecting the honest hard working citizens of our community.

    lastly are we not in need of revenue ? If someone is breaking the law excuse them because why ? You passed a law and do not enforce because why and to which select group ?Nice law good enforcement technique.

Free Music & Food at Pratt Beach on Sunday, April 20

Sun, Apr 20, 2014 1:30-3:30pm

My church, Agape Chicago, is throwing an Easter party at Pratt Beach on Sunday beginning about 1:30. There will be lots of free food, and two local bands (the Country Doctors and Rory Tyer Band) will perform.

All are welcome; come as you are. If you're the sort of person who always feels like they need to bring something, bring a dessert and a game!

We don't really have a rain plan, so here's hoping it doesn't rain.

Also, if you're looking for a place to go to church Sunday morning, we meet at 11am every Sunday in the New 400 Theaters.

    No doubt that our community has its charm and vistas .I have always thought that Divvy should go all the way to Evanston along the lakefront .I also think once they see that CTA and pace do not plug gaps in transport and with the closing of major food stores some people will be able to shop for small items and get to and throw quicker.I also think that Divvy has a good market west of western near lincolnwood mall(that area is way underserved by transit ) .wouldn't it be cool to rent a divvy and to the sculpture trail on mccormick.

March's Final Police Blotter, by Mark Schipper (April's Blotters to come)

Tingling, 59, passed away about 2:45 p.m., less than 45 minutes after he'd been in a fist fight with a stranger on the 7100 block of N. Clark St. 

That stranger turned out to be 59-year-old Joseph Firek of the 7000 block of N. Clark St. He was identified by multiple eye-witnesses as the second man in the fight. Firek, who is white, has been charged with First Degree Murder and a Hate Crime. 

The 19-year-old had been attacked on the 1200 block of W. Albion Ave. about 8:20 p.m., according to CPD. He told officers he had heard fast footsteps coming from behind just before a man grabbed hold of him and his backpack.

The 20-year-old victim was attacked about 11:40 p.m. near the corner of N. Kenmore and W. Hollywood avenues. He said a man in his middle or late 40s had confronted him and claimed he had never returned a cell-phone that belonged to him, the attacker.

A mother of one of the boys accompanied them about 7:20 p.m. to 20th District police headquarters, 5400 N. Lincoln, to make the report. 

The boys said they were shoved from behind while riding through an alley just south of 5600 N. Lincoln Ave. Each of their cell-phones fell out of their pockets when they hit the ground. 

A woman was robbed March 17 stepping off a CTA bus near 4800 N. Broadway, CPD reported. 

Michael Tingling of the 7100 block of N. Ridge Blvd. was pronounced dead of a heart attack March 19 at St. Francis Hospital in Evanston. 

The victim had been on the 2700 block of W. Lunt Ave. when he was surrounded. The first man approached him from the front while the second and third came from behind, he said. 

The victim, 32, said she had returned about 9:30 p.m. to her apartment building on the 2400 block of W. Fitch Ave. She had seen two men standing near the back door. 

The boys were walking on the 2900 block of W. Cortland Ave. when they encountered a middle-aged black male. He had pointed to a white van parked on the street and asked if they wanted to get inside. 

A 10-year-old boy and 13-year-old girl were walking to school on the 1700 block of N. Larrabee St. when a gray sedan pulled alongside them. The driver had rolled down a window and said, "Come over here." 

A third home on the 2100 block of Sheffield was broken into the afternoon of March 17. 

Two other homes were damaged on the 2100 block of N. Fremont St. and the 800 block of W. Armitage Ave. between March 14-and-16.

    I personally witnessed someone throwing garbage out the window from 3rd floor to dumpster on Friday. this wasn't 1710 but a few buildings east, 1658 I believe. the labels on the dumpsters are same from chicago disposal as 1710, possibly same LL. same thing there, the dumpsters are placed such that the lids are always open and would require moving them in and out to close the lid. Tenants aren't walking to dumpster to throw garbage, they are letting it drop from windows/rear stairs.

    Further east last week someone dumped 4 tires in the alley that are still there, now on the Evanston side of the alley.

    Saturday night a white van with environmental plates was going through juneway alley randomly dumping off construction debris (lead paint encrusted window /door frames) .. caught in the act, they were forced to pick it up and load it back into van. 911 was called but they were gone before police arrived
