    The donations typically raise money for schools and other local organizations. I can't imagine what kind of people refuse to make a donation (well actually I can).

  • Fuarain CTA rider, walker, animal person

    I do wonder how much of the donations are negated by the cost of putting on the event. "Fundraising efficiency" is the term, I think.

Near-constant aircraft noise in West Loop

It's 1 am and we just had yet another aircraft of some sort flying overhead for at least a half an hour.

This after several helicopters circled this afternoon around rush hour for over an hour.

I know we're near the Loop and I had no delusions that this would be whisper quiet, but the aircraft noise seems like it's getting excessive - it's every day, starting as early as 5 am on some days.

Is anyone else having issues? Any recommendations on who in the city should be contacted?

  • chi techie...i think they voted it down because they thought it was too dangerous with all the tall buildings in the area and the strong winds by the lake.

  • Thanks, I didn't know how that turned out. A friend of mine went to the hearings in support of the landing pad, but I never learned whether it was approved. Most of the opposition was from nearby residents who didn't want the noise.

Missing orange and white cat- PLEASE HELP!

My cat Aurora has been missing since Wednesday. She is an outdoor cat but always comes home for meals and has never been gone this long. I saw her briefly on Tuesday night, but she did not accept my offer to go inside. Please let me know if you have seen any cats around Winchester and Augusta/Iowa or beyond.

  • Jen

    She may have been taken to animal control. Check there daily bc there is no stray hold period for cats anymore so it could get scooped up by a rescue right away

Getting Egg off Masonry

I recently moved into a home that must have been egged at some point - I don't know when or how long the egg was on there. Regardless no one did anything to clean it. I looked online and tried ammonia as per some suggestions, and that did nothing at all. Does anyone else have any suggestions for how to get this off - either a good vendor you've worked with, something that has worked for you to get egg off, etc? Thinking about renting a power washer but not even sure that would work. Here is a picture.

2 white dogs found

There were 2 small white dogs running around the neighborhood. A couple of us were able to grab both and they are with a couple until a rescue shelter comes.

  • I talked to the owner and unfortunately these aren't her dogs :( she got them groomed yesterday and these 2 dogs are not groomed. The dogs went with a couple until the shelter (not sure which one) could pick them up. Found them on Huron and Wood this morning around 9:30am.

Experience with The Gardner School

Hi. Does anyone have experience with the Gardner School? We're thinking about it for our soon-to-be toddler son. If you do have experience with the school, how old is your child and how long has he or she been attending?

Also, does anyone have other pre-school recommendations in the West Loop area? Thanks!

Amber Building/Viva Plaza

Just saw that the first floor doesn't have Lyft training anymore. It now says "ANNEX" and "never sleeps", anyone know what's happening? I have been excited to see the restoration and investment in the neighborhood.

  • Still waiting on anything official, but the rumor is that it's going to be co-working space, even on the ground floor. Doesn't make much sense to me (and I was hoping for a restaurant) but that's what's out there right now. BTW, if you live in the area, join the UK Village Community page on Facebook -- it's being discussed there.

  • it's an outpost for an ad agency

  • @JG0622 -- any idea which one? Great to have more people in the area during the day.
