Walking Dogs Off Leash in NW Edgewater Glen

There seems to be a little upsurge in this along/around Glenwood, Rosemont, and Wayne.
A neighbor mentioned that she's having difficulty walking her dog who is leash aggressive because they are often surprised by dogs trotting down the street half a block or so ahead of their owners. I haven't had this experience recently, but I usually try to walk my dog when other people aren't out with theirs because mine is a rescue who is terrified by strangers.

Thoughts? Observations?

  • JPC 20 + in the neighborhood

    I love dogs and wish I had one. But if I could suggest one courtesy to dog owners--when walking your dog on a mixed-use path (like the Lake Front Trail), have the dog walk on the grass to your right, otherwise you risk someone entangling themselves with your dog on her morning job, rollerblade excursion, or bike ride.

  • Mine is also leash aggressive and unfortunately I have seen the same. I don't thinks it's an increase just some owners consistently doing it. Probably same owners who don't understand obedience training.

    FYI if your dog is leashed and theirs isn't. Not only would the probably get a ticket, they could end up paying your vet bills and their own.

Chicago Tribune trial I didn't ask for

Recently I received a letter from a debt collector on behalf of the Chicago Tribune. The company claimed that I owed $32.25 and that I needed to pay them immediately--or I could call them to plead my case.

Naturally, I called them. They refused to produce evidence of the debt or explain where it came from --other than to direct me to Chicago Tribune.

Recently I received a letter from a debt collector on behalf of the Chicago Tribune. The company claimed that I owed $32.25 and that I needed to pay them immediately--or I could call them to plead my case.

Naturally, I called them. They refused to produce evidence of the debt or explain where it came from --other than to direct me to Chicago Tribune.

So I called Chicago Tribune. They claimed that I had signed up for a Tribune trial from a door-to-door salesperson/kid asking for a donation for their education. They said that I had been receiving newspapers for months (I hadn't) and they had been sending me bills.

I have no idea what they were talking about. Neither does my wife. We'd never seen a door-to-door Tribune salesperson, much less signed up for a subscription. If the Trib had sent any bills, we probably assumed it was unsolicited junk mail.

The customer service rep eventually credited the account, but not before admitting that there were others like me calling in about their own mystery bills.

My suspicion is that this door-to-door "salesperson" put us on the list without consulting us. I'm curious to know if anyone else has experienced this.

    Though I suspect this was not the Trib's fault, I am not at all a fan of the way they do business in regards to subscriptions. Twice in my life I have signed up for subscription deals through salespeople at my door or on the street, and twice have indicated I want it to be non renewing, and have been assured it won't renew. (I only use it for coupons, and I have a bad habit of letting them pile up rather than using them, which then reminds me why I don't subscribe in the first place!) And both times, they have renewed, won't stop delivering the paper, they keep sending me bills, when I call I have to call multiple numbers to get it taken care of. Both times I've been sent to collections over it too, and have had to call to resolve it multiple times. It's a huge time waster and it makes me really angry.

Loud Noise and Screaming at Hermitage/Winnemac?

At around 9:30pm this evening I heard a loud boom followed by a girl screaming a few times around Hermitage and Winnemac. I looked out seconds later and saw people walking their dogs/ on bikes etc...Just a little freaked out from the noise. Did anyone else catch it? Hoping it was nothing.

We were on Wolcott Ave. The dog jumped and bit our dog on the face and wouldn't let go. The owner acted like this has happened more than once and our dog had a swollen mouth for a few days and now has scarring / scabbing. We were so upset that we tried to get away and didn't get the person's name/number. We had never seen them on our street/neighborhood before but if anyone seems them please be careful. The guy did say afterword that the dog was not friendly. We are not sure why he was even walking the dog in public. If you see them or know who they are we would love to get their information for our dog's sake.

    Use Kelly Blue Book or another reputable site to determine how much your car is worth based on milage, condition, features, etc. Then do a search to see how much other people are selling the same (or similar) year and model of the car to see what the market is like locally. You can then adjust your price based on how much competetion there is and how quickly you want to get rid of the car.

Someone else on the FTC comments section they have for this particular IRS scam said the number was provided by a certain communications company.

Employment for high school students

I'm a high school teacher working closely with Juniors and Seniors this year (16-18 year olds) and am hoping to help them find after school jobs. Though we've only known each other for a little over two weeks, I've been incredibly impressed by the maturity of my students and the potential they have. Many of their families are in need of financial support, and these students are hoping to help (and hopefully develop skills and an employment history that will help them in the long run).

Could anyone advise of places that might be hiring this season or in the near future? I'd be happy to write detailed and honest recommendations on their behalf.

  • Thank you all for your suggestions. I'll look into the public library and Chicago parks. Also, thank you JeffHinkson, I'll ask for more information if any of my students are interested/qualified.

Apartment burglary

My friend's second-floor apartment near Damen/Lawrence unfortunately was burglarized during the day yesterday. Her laptop and jewelry were stolen, as well as a backpack to haul the stuff in, apparently. Thankfully her cute little cats were unharmed. The doors were bolted when she came home and no windows were broken, so they're not sure yet how the thief got in but they think he must have had a key somehow, possibly from/as a previous tenant.

That uncomfortable theory might raise questions of security and safety for all us renters out there. It also underscores the importance of having renter's insurance.

I hope karma bites that guy right in the a**.

  • Love how everyone always wants to screw the landlord. It takes maybe 5 minutes to change a lock. If you ask your landlord to change your locks and he doesn't do it fast enough for you, do it yourself and give him a key. It's a better route than hiring attorneys and going down that road.

  • b in edgewater/andersonville interested resident and business owner

    I wanted to address the issue of always making sure you have renters insurance. People tend to think the builidng they live in is totally secure and they " don't really own anything". Break ins are traumatic and the last thing you want to deal with is worrying about who pays for what. Get renters insurance. Barbara Janusek State Farm agency on Broadway and Bryn Mawr will get you coverage for less than $12.00 a month.

Paying it forward, $50 off Tuft and Needle Mattress

Hi everyone,

Just moved back to the neighborhood and bought a new foam mattress online from Tuft and Needle. They make them in California and don't use any flame retardant chemicals. It shipped for free, has a 30 day easy return policy (they actually donate the mattress) and I haven't slept so comfortably in years! I'm totally thrilled with the quality. And it wasn't very expensive!

Anyway, they have me a coupon for $50 off to share with friends so I just thought I'd share it unless anyone else was interested. :)

    On a whim I just checked out the cost of Macbook Pro replacement displays and they are outrageously expensive ($300-800 just for hardware). $600 for repair is a good deal as far as repairs go, and you're not looking for recommendations for replacement, but fundamentally it is important to know that you can get a non-apple device for far less. The initial response to this generally is that you know the apple interface and like the quality of the construction. In my 12 years of computer repair, a majority of my customers have needed their Macs fixed (both in hardware replacement and software irritations). The hardware in Apple products is the generally the same as what you would find in other non-Apple products and while the engineering (generally) is better, the life span of hardware (storage life and (recently) CPU hard/firm architecture) is the limiting factor for the life of the product and that will be roughly the same as any other well reviewed product. The laptop market is very close, but non-Apple is generally at a fraction of the cost. As for the user interface, if you look at screen shots of the user interfaces of all mainstream OS and applications, you can see striking similarities as many user experience designers come to a common consensus on the ideal computer/human interface (with current common input devices). I can't give a wholehearted recommendation for change as I don't know how you use your machine, but for the vast majority of people a $250 (sale $200) Chromebook would be more than sufficient and cheap enough to assign less worry to its well-being. Considering the cost of the repair you could buy a Chromebook, an external display, and a high quality Android phone (off contract) for seamless life and/or business device harmony. As a disclaimer, I just want to say I might also be biased by my irritation at some of the licensing choices Apple has made in the last couple decades, some of which make Bill Gates seem like Linus Torvalds.

Suspicious Man & Possible Attempted Break In Saturday Morning Balmoral/ Leavitt

A suspicious hispanic man, medium height, with stocky build late 40's repeatedly rang our doorbell early Saturday morning (5am).

When he left he did not run or look to seek out other neighbors to contact.

Possibly looking for a house to rob. Please be on the look out.
