Live-In Nanny Needed

Hello - we are seeking a live-in nanny for our 2yo & 5yo. We live in Roscoe Village on the North Side. The ideal candidate will have a friendly and positive attitude; be willing to help with all aspects of household management; and have flexibility re. work times and hours. Primary assistance is needed Mon-Fri., so it's okay if the nanny has somewhere else to live/stay on the weekends. MUST have a driver's license and excellent references. Spanish-speaking okay.

  • Now

    Jannie what does being an attorney have to do with it? No need to answer. I know you're weary of this conversation. But being an attorney implies not necessarily a knowledgeable person but more of a predatory character. I'm basing this on cultural perception and not on who you may be. May you take to heart what Ginni and I are saying to you. Thanks!

  • @Now - against my better judgment I am going to answer and leave it at this: I'm sorry for the misery that's clearly in your life and the negativity that's caused you to post as you have. And I would like to apologize to all the attorneys and other intelligent people who you've insulted through your thread. We have found a nanny and I will be deleting this post and no longer following it. I wish you the best.

Coyote On Metra Tracks

Just a heads up to everyone out there. I heard a howling noise right now, and even before I looked, I told my husband, "I bet that was a coyote." Sure enough, I looked out our door, and there was a coyote on the Metra tracks. This was near 54th and Cornell. So I guess they're venturing further south??? Is there anyone that I'm supposed to call and report this to, or is it just a case of letting them wander around? Worried for the little doggies around here.

  • There have been coyote sightings in Washington Park, Jackson Park and even in Harold Washington Park the last few years.
    They normally roam during the hours of darkness and avoid humans. If you see one wave your arms and they will move on.

  • I used to let my cat outdoors until he came home one morning with a his tail frayed and infected. His tail was so damaged that it had to be amputated. The vet said that it appeared he was attacked by another animal such as a cat,raccoon,or opossum. Please keep you cat indoors! My cat still whines by the back door,wanting to go outside,even though he has been neutered.

51st and Cornell?

Anyone know why the flood of police cars on Cornell between 51st and 53rd?

  • If you read the article, this is an accidental shooting, not a murder.

  • The initial Trib article didn't make that clear, but yes, that seems to be the case.
