Saw a scared black and white cat on Huron and Ashland

On my way home tonight a chubby black and white cat ran in front of an oncoming car, then darted behind a house. It was around 7:45pm and I was headed home on the north side of Ashland. It was dark so I couldn't tell if it had any other markings, so it's very possible I'm not getting the colors right. Little guy ran off before I could snap a picture. Hopefully it's a neighborhood kitty! If not I'll keep an extra eye out.

1149 W Grand Ave work

The old grey building that housed a trucking company seems to be having some work done. I guess the building was sold a few months ago. The garage door is open and there is some kind of bobcat in there tearing up the cement slab. Anyone know what is happening with that spot or what's going in there. Thanks

Inside water leak/plumber recommendation

I have a water leak from the unit above and need plumber recommendations. The water damage is coming in above my shower which I'm sure will entail a plumber finding the source. Really would appreciate any advice.

Dogs pooping/peeing on roof decks

This not the 1st time I've seen this, but am I the only one grossed out by owners letting their dogs go on roof decks? They are privately owned but part of condos and they eventually pick up the poop, but what about the pee? Grosses me out!!

  • mwalcheske Enthusiast

    There's a guy in 800 block of N Racine who lets his dog out on his balcony, over the sidewalk, to "go". Last winter I was nailed by his dog peeing over my head, ironically, as I walking my dog (you know, so she can pee/poo at street level). Gross. The bottom line: People are extremely lazy. I'm just not.

  • so nasty. my neighbor did this until I reported them to the board.

Pavement cave in at old gas station

My son and I were waiting for a cab this morning and witnessed a large truck with trailer pull into the old gas station at Aberdeen and Grand. The truck drove into the lot and boom! the left front tire sunk into the ground and it was stuck!! I hope they don't have too much trouble getting it out. It was a nice truck!

  • KC resident!

    yeah, I've noticed that, what's going in there?

  • Stirling Bay has floated a 6 story office building which would be great. But i haven't seen any news on that yet. I think the fence is related to the unstable concrete.
