Policies & City Chickens
In Chicago, keeping chickens as pets and for eggs (humanely, cleanly, appropriately) is not prohibited in residential districts. There is no specific prohibition on livestock in residential areas, but slaughtering, nuisance, sanitation, and humane treatment and housing ordinances apply.

See section 7-12-100 of the city code. In addition:
There's no limit on numbers of chickens, nor is there a ban on roosters.
Keeping ANY animal for the purpose of slaughtering for food is prohibited. Permitted slaughtering facilities in Chicago (like "Live Poultry" establishments) are monitored by the state under biosecurity protocols.
Excessive animal noise like crowing (and barking) is prohibited.

    Has anyone contacted Chicago Bird Monitors? There are responsible chicken owners who can take them. I really hate people like that. At least maybe take the sick chicken in the Bird Monitors can pick it up and help.

Found Dog

This dog was found wandering on Cullerton near Oakley. She was wearing a harness and is friendly. She knew some commands so is certainly someone's pet. We could not keep her, so she was turned in to Chicago Animal Care & Control at 2700 S. Western. She will be held on stray hold for 3 days for her owners to claim her. After 3 days she is available for rescues to pull her. After 5 days she becomes eligible for euthanasia.

Please share so that her owners can claim her.

    FYI, I have posted on CraigsList, Lost Dogs Illinois and here. I have also put up flyers.

    As stated in my original post, she is friendly. She is a large pit bull/boxer mix.

    As for the comments about CACC, it is an open-access shelter, meaning that is legally required to take in every animal that is brought through its doors. That is about 20-25 thousand animals per year. Unfortunately, there are not enough homes for all of those pets, so euthanasia does occur. The current live rate for dogs is about 60%. The live rate for cats was about 90% earlier this year.

    If you would like to make a difference in the lives of these pets, here are some steps that you can take:
    - spay/neuter your own pets
    - adopt, don't shop for pets Plenty of great pets can be found for adoption at CACC or one of their partner rescues.
    - volunteer with CACC or one of the rescues that pulls from the CACC.
    - donate to one of the many animal rescues in town.
    - share information about lost pets and adoptables with your social media circle.

    Here is a good place to start for information:

    Cats are disproportionately killed at shelters. Friendly cats can appear to be feral, due to the environment. Uninterested or inexperienced staff members do not necessarily scan cats, pit bulls, rotties, etc. for microchips (first hand experience), regardless of the ordinance that says they will/must. Taking any animal there during the recent outbreak of canine flu (which the CDC now reports can be transmitted to cats) is a death sentence itself. DO NOT take puppies or kittens to any of these open access shelters at this time. Find another way, foster if you can. If you contact a rescue and volunteer to foster the animal you find, most times they will provide medical and other supplies as long as you can keep the animal in your home until they can find another foster home or it's adopted from your home. AWL, ACS or CACC are not places for seniors or babies of any species on a good day, with this outbreak it's worse.

Do you have a kitchen Fire Extinguisher?

I purchased one for $20 at Home Depot.
Small but mighty.
Also available on Amazon.
Could be a $20 life/home saver one day.

Fire Extinguishers need to be as mandatory
as smoke detectors.

Troligtvis är du vända till dessa proffs för schablonskatt, bokföring och revision tjänster endast, men din revisor förmodligen vet din ekonomi som du, om inte bättre. Din revisor kan vara din partner att bygga en solid ekonomisk strategi.

Här är vad man ska leta efter i en revisor att få det mesta av förhållandet:

En betrodd rådgivare.

Din revisor har tillgång till alla dina finansiella data, och på längden på din relation, har förmodligen med ditt företag i vått och torrt. Revisorer är tal experter. De förstå bokslut och rapporter, och de vet redovisning programvara och bokföring metodtips in och ut.

Långsiktiga mål.

en bra småföretag revisor kan hjälpa dig att göra omedelbara finansiella beslut, men också kan spela en roll i din långsiktiga strategi. I själva verket, enligt en undersökning som Sleeter grupp av små företag var ägare, affärsplanering och strategi de översta två tjänster de önskade deras revisorer som avses.

Innovativ teknik.

Slutligen, leta efter en revisor som erbjuder nya och innovativa teknik verktyg för att se till att du både maximerar din tid och resurser. Den Sleeter gruppen undersökningen fann att en instrumentpanel att övervaka deras verksamhet var tredje mest önskad tjänst bland småföretagare.

    For both candidates: Our neighborhood has a serious litter/ filthy yard problem. Yet, our alderman and streets and san supervisor are not interested in helping residents with this issue. Would you be open to forming a streets and san board of review so we can effectively deal with this quality of life issue?

Catalyst Chicago Magazine has a story on abandoned school buildings, highlighting Englewood, Humboldt Park and North Lawndale.

By Alex Nitkin

The building that used to be Bontemps Elementary School is now a crumbling ruin-- granite walls chipped away, interior stripped of pipes and wiring, dusty plywood sheets bolted over most of the windows.

And when Asiaha Butler looks at it, she couldn’t be more excited.

“I’m thinking this back part could be like a little rest stop area, where people riding their bikes up on the trail can come down and learn about the community,” Butler says, describing a dream as she sweeps her hand toward a thicket of woods growing over the property boundary. “We also see a lot of opportunity for this to be a kind of urban agriculture education center, for farmers or for tourists—if you want to start an urban farm, you can come here and learn the basics.”

As president of the Residents Association of Greater Englewood (RAGE), Butler has spent almost two years leading conversations to get somebody—anybody—to set up shop in this building. Bontemps is one of six shuttered elementary schools in Englewood that are still empty since the district closed a total of 49 schools across the city. Englewood was hardest hit.

Old photos wanted

My mom, along with her brothers and sisters, was born at 2050 W. Roosevelt
in the early 1920's. They were baptized at St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church
which was located at 12th & Cypress St. (now Roosevelt Rd. and Hoyne Ave.)
Does anyone have photos of this section of Roosevelt Rd. showing
the church and surrounding neighborhood. Would be great to have a photo
of the building where she and her siblings were born. Many Thanks in advance!
