Found cat

Found a black on Northshore Ave today. It has no collar or any other identification. Brought it home for now. She is friendly and responds to calls. However, it seems she do not like indoors. I will wait for few more hours. If it belongs to 7anyone or if anyone want to keep, please respond. I have a kid at home so cant keep the cat for long at the moment.

  • Hello there. I think you may have found my kids cat. We live on the corner of NorthShore and Campbell , 6705. My phone number is 312-404-1674

  • I am sorry I don't have it now. I kept her for a while, feed her and then let her go. I will inform you If I find her again.

  • Here is a pic https://ibb.co/dGjhma
    If it was yours, I hope you find it soon. When I let her free, she ran away chasing a rabbit kit. It was a really nice cat, but because of my 1.5 yr old kid I was not able to keep her at home for long. My kid was running after the cat making the cat uneasy. Plus, I was not sure whether the cat was properly vaccinated or not.

It's hooker season again

They seemed to disappear as winter arrived. Just noticed they are drifting back into my neighborhood again. Two of them were actually sitting on the back steps (leading to the basement) of my building just before noon on July 4. I came back a couple hours later and there was a wet nap and an unused condom in a wrapper lying on the steps. Nice. Saw another one ambling down my street with a couple of male friends the next morning just before 6:00 a.m.

My question is, what's the most effective way of getting these, ahem, ladies out? Police? (311? 911?) Alderman? Any other suggestions?

  • Pedro G. RoPa is my hood.

    Manticore, do you go to the beach Downtown? Do you have a doggie?

  • Manticore

    I go all over town, but it's obvious that dogs have to spread a certain amount of disease.

Field Elementary- Playground Project

Hey RP Community! Anyone know what's going on at Field? I know they received a Room to Grow Grant for their playground and have started chaining off the parking lot but I haven't seen any movement other than that. I heard a rumor from my neighbor that the project was projected to be complete by June but I'm finding it hard to believe that time line.

Does anyone have the scoop? Thanks!

    I don't think Bob spends much time here. Why don't you call the ward service office, 773-338-5796?

    Good info, Bob.

    Hi, Sorry but I forgot that not everyone would see the reply to Nan which I sent out within an hour of Little Boy returning. I got a call from my neighbor across the street saying he was there. I had had 3 other calls which turned out to be other black cats. But when I saw his back shaved leg, I knew it was him. His cone and collar were off. He's in good condition, just thinner. He's beginning to act like himself. At first he just slept a lot. I want to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart. The people of a Rogers Park are incredible. Such caring people! This correspondence, the neighbors, merchants, alderman, Chamber...we are thrilled that Little Boy is back, and so glad we moved here. Thank you all for your concern & prayers.

Gray Cat Missing near Albion - Greenview

Most likely he is hiding in bushes or back yards very near the houses around Albion between Bosworth and Greenview.. Under stairs and porches, too.
-----------
June 14, male grey cat with white facial markings, chest and paws

He is not tagged collared or chipped, since he never goes outside.
This shy, gentle Cat is smallish, under 10 lbs and likely to hide and avoid people.

His feline girlfriend misses him and so do we.

Please Call if you see a cat hiding in yard or back stairs, etc.

    Helen, you're right, July, not June.

    Joan: I'll tell him you said so! He's like the Houdini of cats, but not my cat technically.

    Catherine: Yes, I will encourage this. But, chips only help if captured and scanned at vet or shelter. Fist step is to act quickly to locate before much time passes.

    Thanks all.

  • Great. Happy he's home. Yes that's one of my colony. The black and white cat.

Henry Woo and Bed Bugs

Have any of you dealt with a landlord named Henry Woo (who operates as Lundan Partners or Hinman Partners)? I live in his building at 1154 W Lunt & I'm having a difficult time getting him to deal with a bed bug infestation over the last month.

Have any of you dealt with a landlord named Henry Woo (who operates as Lundan Partners or Hinman Partners)? I live in his building at 1154 W Lunt & I'm having a difficult time getting him to deal with a bed bug infestation over the last month.
I have a severe allergic reaction to them (worst my dermatologist has ever seen). I've taken lots of photos of the bites & the bugs & even have specimens in a jar. Not posting the pics bc they're gross but if you wanna see em... I sent them all to Henry, but he still had the gall last week to ask me if I was "sure" I had bed bugs.
Henry has 3 times sent unlicensed cut-rate "exterminators" to do a halfass spray job. The last time the guy came, he was literally only in my apt for 6 minutes. The problem hasn't been solved & I'm worried the bed bugs will spread to my neighbors. I've told Henry he needs to send a licensed PCO to use an Integrated Pest Management system as the city suggests but he's ignored me.
I sent a certified mail letter of intent to withhold rent to his PO Box, which he hasn't signed for. Today I tried to deliver the letter in person at a 2nd address found from some deep googling. A different Woo was listed on the doorbell, who wouldn't open the door or tell me where to find Henry. I slid the letter under the door just in case.
He's also stopped responding to my emails.
Now, my Super is saying he'll be in my building's office on Fri but I have to tell him in advance that I'm coming, which could just give him a chance to avoid me. But that's my next step.
I'm in touch with a lawyer & going to try spraying tomorrow myself, but if they're in the walls, they'll just come back.

If any of you know anything about Lundan Partners or Henry Woo or have advice on dealing with a terrible landlord, I'd really appreciate it.

PS. I don't really need any more advice on dealing with Bed Bugs themselves, I've gotten more than enough from my friends on Facebook.

  • Tammy Schrader Formerly known as Tammy Goulet

    I also called Kevin at The Aldermans Office and he was very helpful to me. Again I hope that all is well now. Where we live I kind of became the advocate for the building and was told by staff that I'm a bad person to call and report the problem because they were being fined for not being compliant. Oh Well.

    Get in touch with Ann Hinterman at the alderman's office and officer Hardy at the 24th district police station.. But don't expect much. Give your landlord a two week notice saying f if he doesn't do something-which he is required to do by law-you will then have an exterminator come in and will deduct the cost from the next month's rent.. You can do this by law so if he tries to retaliate you can get a lawyer-hopefully pro bono-to set him straight. Also call Howard Area Community Center to see what other options they might suggest. GOOD LUCK!

Man on bike grabbing women in the street in RP

On Tues, June 27th at around 4:15 pm, I was walking to the Loyola train station. At the intersection of W. Arthur Ave and N. Newgard Ave, a man on a bike approached me from behind and grabbed/hit me on the rear end with his open hand as he passed. He kept riding N. on Newgard, moving slowly. I yelled, "I see you and I'm going to report what you just did!" He raised his right arm and without turning...

On Tues, June 27th at around 4:15 pm, I was walking to the Loyola train station. At the intersection of W. Arthur Ave and N. Newgard Ave, a man on a bike approached me from behind and grabbed/hit me on the rear end with his open hand as he passed. He kept riding N. on Newgard, moving slowly. I yelled, "I see you and I'm going to report what you just did!" He raised his right arm and without turning around, gave me the finger. I asked another man who was walking to his car on N. Newgard Ave if he had seen the cyclist (he hadn't). I said, loudly, "He just grabbed me as he rode past." When the man on the bike heard me say this, he raised both hands in the air and gave me two fingers (while still riding the bike). Then he rode out of eyesight, heading north on N. Newgard Ave.

The man on the bike who grabbed me appeared to be Caucasian, mid-20s to 40 years old, with a slim build. He was wearing dark pants, possibly black jeans, a black jacket (zip up with no hood), sneakers, and a wool hat. The hat looked to be dark blue, possibly with a stripe around it. He was riding a black BMX style bike that appeared to be a bit too small for him.

I filed a police report on this incident and I'm also going to report it to the Alderman's office.

Please keep an eye out around Rogers Park for an individual fitting this description; in particular, a man who appears to be wearing a lot of dark clothing, given the warm weather, and riding a BMX-style bike. He was pretty bold to do this in the middle of the day, in broad daylight. I'm concerned about what he might get up to after dark. Women walking around Rogers Park should be careful, and keep an eye on your surroundings. If an incident occurs, call 911.

  • Michael Archangel Donald Trump - An irredeemable moral failure

    @Mad About RP - But since you asked, previous posts have pointed out your cherry-picking of the statutes. I reread the posts and your replies and have to agree with Joan M.

    Thank you for asking!

  • Michael Archangel Donald Trump - An irredeemable moral failure

    @Mad About RP - You wrote: "I realize this is a narritive [sic] wrecker for you"

    Not sure what NARRATIVE you think you are wrecking. The issue is one of whether the offense is battery or if it is a sexually oriented crime. Based on the description by the OP, the alleged crime was not sexual in nature.

    That really is all there is to the matter no matter how many references you make to the statutes you believe are relevant.

HA HA! Moore Attempts to Subtly Throw Hat into Ring to Succeed David Orr as Cook County Clerk

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/politics/ct-clerk-david-orr-not-running-met-0622-20170621-story.html
After nearly 30 years as Cook County Clerk, former 49th Ward Alderman and Loyola History Professor David Orr who the Chicago Tribune once described as "an independent-minded former history professor with a reputation so squeaky-clean that a cynical colleague calls him 'Mr. Goody Two-Shoes,'" has announced that he will be retiring from public office and not seeking another term in that capacity.

After nearly 30 years as Cook County Clerk, former 49th Ward Alderman and Loyola History Professor David Orr who the Chicago Tribune once described as "an independent-minded former history professor with a reputation so squeaky-clean that a cynical colleague calls him 'Mr. Goody Two-Shoes,'" has announced that he will be retiring from public office and not seeking another term in that capacity.

Orr had barely completed his press conference making this announcement when Ald. Joe Moore, who now holds Orr's old City Council seat, said he was "completely open to the possibility" of running for clerk. County Commissioner Jesus "Chuy" Garcia, who lost to Emanuel in a 2015 runoff for mayor, said he was "giving it a look."

Neither Moore or Garcia have any business serving the people of Cook County in the capacity of County Clerk. The only motivation of either of these two is ego and power.

    Cook County Clerk David Orr won't seek 8th term
    Mayor for one historical week, alderman for a dozen years and Cook County clerk for nearly 30, David Orr is opting to end a career in politics on his own terms. The reform-minded lakefront liberal from Rogers Park announced Wednesday he won't seek an eighth term next year.

No Parking

Does anybody know why there are no parking signs for Saturday June 24th from June way Terrace to Ashland Avenue? from 7am until 5pm.

  • Tammy Schrader Formerly known as Tammy Goulet

    Either way I was asking because someone on Juneway was asking no matter what the time states on the signs and I think that it's because of A Just Harvest having some kind of walk on Saturday June 24th early in the morning

  • Helen NoH North of Howard for 55 + years

    Yes, according to the alderman's office, that is the reason. A Just Harvest is having a 5k run up Ashland and east to Sheridan, beginning at 9 AM.

Loud crash west of Farwell

Did anyone hear a large crash or explosion west of Farwell 10 minutes ago?

    If you read the original post, Omar, you would see that I did not post it nor did I specifically refer to west of Farwell in my post. I simply confirmed that I heard a noise without mentioning direction at any point.
