Wifi thread

I live on Palmer right between Central Park and Lawndale. I finally had enough of AT&T's awful service. It kept going down and I always had to restart the modem. I switched to Comcast for just Internet and not only did my bill go down to $19.99 a month but It is way faster. I go a modem from Amazon and used a old 5g router since I have hardwood floors. Anyone near me if your fed up with AT&T switch to Comcast for Internet you won't be disappointed.

  • I have had so many problems with comcast, I'm actually thinking of switching to AT&T

  • I had AT&T uverse internet for 3 years. The last year for some reason it started lagging and rebooting on its own. I did the online test and it recommended me a tech visit. The day before my appointment I got an email that the problem was fixed. Well I still had the same issues. For the last 4 months I have Comcast the blast package 90s download on the speed test, $60 with the router. So far I am very satisfied.

Com-Ed power outage notice

Did anyone else receive the notice for a power outage scheduled for next Thursday? The notice said 8 hours, which seems excessive, especially since we're supposed to have more hot weather next week. We have a new born and breast milk stored in the freezer, among other perishables. Research indicates food is only good for 4 hours in a fridge / freezer without power, less if you're opening the doors. Any way we can get this shortened?

  • No. Does it specify a boundary?

    You can call the number listed on the flyer. It does say that if temps are above 90, work will be rescheduled.

Found Keys underneath the Blue line on Moffat

On my morning dog walk, I found a broken large key ring with 2 keys (they look like standard front door keys). Keys were found on the sidewalk on Moffat St. (Between Milwaukee & Winnebago) basically underneath where the blue line passes overhead.

Key ring has a small charm/tag of an animal - non profit fund.

Message me if lost your keys

Movies in the park

Does anyone know if dogs are allowed at movies in the park??

  • Cristina Lara Mom of 3 in Logan Square

    I see those signs when I enter the playground M&M00, I assumed they were for the entire park not just the actual playground.

  • I always used to bring my old girl. She was quiet and just sat nicely. She was 100 lbs but nobody ever minded. :)

Curb Repainted

Anyone know how to request the curb near the fire hydrant to be repainted yellow? The one outside our place on Campbell is very faded and needs repainted so that's it's more visible. Thanks for any help

  • that's so crazy that waguespack responded that way. "i am the city government but also sorry that the city government is incompetent" shrug.

  • Deb R 60641 resident 40 + yrs.

    LSQ - that's not crazy at all, Waguespacks office was just being honest. Our former alderman's brother used to paint the yellow lines in our ward because the city can't keep up. Just look how badly striped the streets are.

Loud explosions in ally off Pulaski and wrightwood

There have been several very loud explosions in our ally. Much more than regular fireworks. Called 911. Nothing is on fire but whatever they are blowing up is not acceptable. I'm used to hearing fireworks and what not but this is just ridiculous. Any info folks have on this new late night, summer past time would be appreciated.

  • The fireworks complaints every year here welcome summer like the annual complaining over dibs and shoveling snow welcome us to winter. .

  • Which Ally, anyway? Ally Sheedy? Ali Mcgraw? Muhammad Ali?

Lost Dog Sighted: brown, older chihuahua type dog near Funston Elementary

A smaller, older tan chihuahua dog was seen. He/she looked lost and was walking along Central Park and Armitage. A team of good Samaritans were able to heard him/her into the playground of Funston Elementary. We shut the playground gate so at least he would be blocked from getting back on Central Park. He definitely was lost, skiddish, seemed nervous. We tried to lure him but he left down McLean from the playground, heading away from Central Park. He was wearing a collar with blue tags.Pakr

  • Tell you neighbor it's very important to continuously call animal control. They don't hold them very long.

  • One of the good Samaritans said he also saw three smaller dogs in a little pack earlier that day, running around. He pointed east of the school

Needed: stop sign visibility at Kimball and Bloomingdale

The stop sign at Kimball and Bloomingdale is hidden behind the viaduct pillar. I've nearly been hit several times. It's 1 block from a school. I've reached out to Alderman Maldonado 5 times, the 606 and Chicago Department of Transit (with the citation code that it is not properly visible per their own regulations) with zero luck of adding paint, rumble strips or flat lights to add visibility. Any insights on how to get a simple safety update?

  • Making a mere stop sign visible will accomplish nothing. Drivers do not care about stop signs. You need an oil pan buster class speed bump installed and then drivers will pay attention.

  • Judy Weisenski

    They should puta stop sign at bloomingdale and central park... trying to go southbound on central park from bloomingdale there's a dip in the road, high wild flowers on the corner and the viaduct for the trail... super dangerous
