So I keep reading about how Edgewater Glen does a great Trick or Treat event every year,but can't find street names-anyone know what streets they are?

Also is it safe? It's dark out there so debating if I should take my daughter out around here.

  • Someone needs a chill pill. I'm quite not sure who. Cant we all agree we are all racists and just try be polite and see everyone else's view? Or was that too black and gay of me to say? :-)

Alley Attack

Just wanted to make this event public - a week or so ago, I stumbled across five young men beating on another young man in my alley as I was headed home. It was 7:30pm and there were plenty of people walking out and about in the neighborhood.

Just wanted to make this event public - a week or so ago, I stumbled across five young men beating on another young man in my alley as I was headed home. It was 7:30pm and there were plenty of people walking out and about in the neighborhood. The attack seemed pretty aggressive and I found out the victim had been knocked off his bike and then kicked and punched by the group. He was asked for money but this was after the hitting had started.

My partner scared the attackers off when he yelled at them to stop while I called the police. The attackers ran (of course) but the victim was not badly hurt.

Just a reminder to be aware of your surroundings and to speak up if you see something!

  • It is always good to know that neighbors are not looking the other way. Just please don't count on the bad guys always running from your presence.

    It is always good to know that neighbors are not looking the other way. Just please don't count on the bad guys always running from your presence.

    I myself have intervened in more assaults than I can count during my 25 yrs of living in Albany Park. I know that one's first instinct can be to shout at a perpetrator, especially when someone is being hurt. And I'll admit that I have gone all crazed "Mama Bear" in more than a couple of overly-dangerous situations, most recently during an attempted abduction of a woman whose attacker was pumped up on steroids, armed, and fresh from jail. But two people are not always going to scare off 5 young men full of adrenaline, rage, steroids and/or alcohol. And it only takes a split second for one of them to use a weapon.

    On our block, we have a phone tree, and the moment something happens, we call the police AND our neighbors. When multiple calls are made to 911, you get a quicker response, you get more eyes on the fleeing perpetrators, and if necessary to save someone's life, you get a more intimidating presence on the street. And being able to call on one's neighbors in a crisis will keep you safer than our overstretched PD realistically can.

    All that being said, I am glad that you, your husband, and the victim are safe. And thanks.

  • George F in Ravenswood displaced New Yorker

    Elizabeth you and your partner handled it perfectly. The important thing is that the bad guys stopped the beating after they saw you, thus possibly preventing further injury to the victim. Did you happen to stick around and see if the CPD got descriptions from the victim and other witnesses?

    Is there a homeless shelter in the area? I notice one older man walking up Western Ave early mornings. He has a cart and suitcase and so many bags that he can't carry/pull all of it at once. He walks a way with what he can pull/carry, puts that stuff down, then goes back to retrieves the rest. Am curious about him.

A Man in Dire "Need" Depends on the Kindness of "Neighbors"

A friend noted that he did this to him during the summer near Amundsen High School. Yesterday, he was at Bryn Mawr and Ravenswood. On 10/29, a middle-aged, African-American man showed me an inhaler needed for his daughter's asthma. She needed help right away. He displayed $7 in cash, but he needs $10. He has three daughters and lives a block away. Anyway you can help? Please give. And God bless you.

    I never give panhandlers anything period. They are all scammers and freeloaders and if you figure out how many people do give them money then they are collecting enough in a week than some low income job earners make in a week. I was approached by this sick child/inhaler years ago in the old walgreens parking lot and told him to NO. There is now a guy that begs in front of the new Walgreens alone and sometimes with children. If I go there three times a week he is out there. These guys go back to the same place because they are collecting money so why leave a good area because the people change every day.

    The reason I quoted my friend was to indicate what hazelg said...the panhandlers are scammers.

    There are plenty of shelters in the area, and plenty of food pantries. At Care for Real, you can just go in and get food...they don't check anything. None of these people are starving...in fact, you go in Saturday morning to CFR and at least a third of them are fat.

    I used to get angry when ppl would say, "Oh, the homeless like being on the street...they don't want a job." How dare they say that! How dare they presume anyone would rather beg than work for a living!

    Well...I spent two years living with roommates and a brief period being homeless (at Pacific Garden). And yes, they have no shame about bilking you out of money...instead, they consider you fools and think of themselves as smart for getting people to fall for their sob stories. Yes, most of them are drunks/druggies...during the 90-minute break between dinner and the obligatory 90-minute sermon before bedtime, the PGM guys would go to Dominick's, pool their money, buy a magnum of vodka, and chug it straight out by the loading dock because they knew that at worst, the shelter would make them sleep on a mat on the floor in a separate room. They don't want jobs...they want just enough money to buy booze/drugs and maybe pay whatever rent they have to. They get food from Link or pantries.

    I got into an argument with a former resident of my building when I asked him politely not to give money to the bum who used to sit on the east wall of Jewel. He told me it was "our duty to help those less fortunate" and that "it's not my business if they spend the money I give them on alcohol." He later borrowed $70 from me - which I foolishly gave him since I know what it's like to be broke and how even $10 or $20 can make a difference - and then he moved out of the building (meaning he left the couch he was sleeping on and skipped out on rent he owed to the real tenant).

Found: chubby orange housecat

This cat was hanging out on the sidewalk in front of 4447 N Wolcott. It was very friendly, well fed and didn't seem like an outside cat. I couldn't take it in so he's still outside. It went into the gated alley next to the building so I'm hoping it knows how to stay safe. It was cold but seemed ok for now.

  • This cat has been a fixture of the neighborhood for years. He/she is fearless and friendly. If this cat were on Fousquare, it would be the Mayor of Ravenswood.

I would like to encourage pet owners to use a large font size for the phone number. I could catch the dog's name and an address but the phone number was way too small to read from a distance or from any of the pictures I took.
Fortunately, I managed to chase the dog to his home according to a girl who recognized the dog though it was not the address on the tag. I am pretty confident the girl was telling the truth as the dog seemed very familiar and booked for the back door when she opened the gate.
Please make certain your pet's tags are updated and that the number can be read from outside of biting distance.

  • Candi I got to say that if I owned a dog the last thing I would want is my phone number visible to anyone.

  • Duncs - I am not saying visible to just anyone but if you can use a font where I can read the dogs name when I am a foot and a half a way with concentrated effort, you can use the same one for your phone number. It took me 20 minutes just to get the dog's name and the rough street address without me ever touching the dog. I don't call that visible to just anyone.

It seems that every time I go to the grocery store to pick up more formula (I usually go to Mariano's) I end up coming home with coupons for Enfamil (as if the coupon machine gives the competitors product). I also have several Enfamil samples and full containers of formula. I doubt we will use these. Are any parents on the other side...meaning, Enfamil users that have ended up with Similac coupons and/or Similac samples and full containers? Before I throw the Enfamil items out, I thought I would check the neighborhood to see if anyone has use for them, and even better, able to trade me unwanted/unused Similac products. Contact me if this interests you.

  • you can sign up. on similac.com and usually get coupons. also when you buy the large container, stuck to the silver foil is usually a $2 off coupon, I used to get that everytime

  • We too have twins and amazon mom with a subscription gives you 121 ounces for around 90.00. This is by far the cheapest way to get formula.

    It happened to us as well about two months ago. My son works from home and was waiting for a package that never appeared. He called UPS and they claim they delivered it but had to "talk to the driver first". He waited (2) weeks for the call back that never came. Called again and got the run around. We don't know if the package was stolen by the driver or if he left it outside and someone came along and picked it up or is just lost in the UPS system. He got a replacement but drove to the UPS distribution center to pick it up rather than take the chance on the driver.

I spent 20 minutes last week on the phone with UPS because the driver had left a package in our foyer that had the right street number on it but should have been delivered to that address on Winona, not on Argyle, which is where it was left. I told them I would just walk it over but I wasn't sure if I would be able to get it inside that person's entryway. I also wanted UPS to know it had happened. They insisted on having the driver come back for it--which was just as inconvenient for me as walking it over would have been but at least correct recipient probably eventually got her delivery from Piper Lime.

    I work for a company that sends hundreds of UPS packages out every week, mostly without incident, but sometimes they do screw up. Fed Ex is actually quite a bit worse when it comes to errors and sloppiness, like not bothering to make second delivery attempts, etc.

    Only if you're a CDL driver do you have to get it actually replaced, otherwise you just have to notify them of the new address; the Chicago police themselves often don't know this, though. I've been told twice by two different cops my license was invalid. The beat cop in 24 (a real d'khead) gave me a ticket for something unrelated, because I challenged him on this fact, in fact. And it turns out, he's wrong. His ticket was also bogus and thrown out.

    'How do I get my license and registration corrected if my name or address changes?
    Within 10 days of changing your name or address, you must notify the Secretary of State by visiting a Driver Services facility or by writing to the Driver Services Department, Central Services, 2701 S. Dirksen Parkway, Springfield, Illinois 62723. If you wish to have a new driver's license reflecting the change, you must visit a driver facility and pay a $5 fee. To change your address, you can use the online Address Change Notification to transmit notification of address changes to the Driver Services Department. Please be sure to include your Driver's License or Identification Card number and registration number. A change of name for driver's license or ID card must be completed at a Driver Services facility. A CDL holder must obtain a corrected driver's license within 30 days of any such change.'

Is this typical now?

I was walking on Bryn Mawr/Winthrop near the 7-11 and there was a Chicago police officer standing up against the building near the door with an assault rifle. There was no obvious criminal activity occurring and there was no armored truck picking up cash from a business there. Is this normal now for the police to stand on the street with assault rifles? I like the police presence, but unless it's a SWAT raid, why in the hell do they need assault rifles? Maybe it's silly to be more concerned about an assault rifle than a standard police revolver, but I found it very unsettling.

    DK, it doesn't really matter the situation or how fast the officer thinks. 5.56 is a powerful, high velocity round, its going to keep going after it hits someone and will likely still have enough force to go through a wall. Stray rounds are going to be a nightmare. Any of the standard handguns CPD carries are going to have 15+ rounds in the magazine and aren't going to be nearly as likely to injure bystanders in a busy, densely populated urban area. No cop has any business carrying a rifle unless he's going into a situation where he knows a suspect is going to have body armor, its just irresponsible.

    Lets hope this idiot doesn't run into a situation where he needs to "think fast" because someone is going to get hurt and then the city is going to lose a lawsuit.

Assigning risk scores to apps may slow down unwarranted access to personal information

October 28, 2014

What information is beaming from your mobile phone over various computer networks this very second without you being aware of it?

Experts say your contact lists, email messages, surfed webpages, browsing histories, usage patterns, online purchase records and even password protected accounts may all be sharing data with intrusive and sometimes malicious applications, and you may have given permission.

"Smartphones and tablets used by today's consumers include many kinds of sensitive information," says Ninghui Li, a professor of Computer Science at Purdue University in Indiana.

The apps downloaded to them can potentially track a user's locations, monitor his or her phone calls and even monitor the messages a user sends and receives--including authentication messages used by online banking and other sites, he says, explaining why unsecured digital data are such a big issue.

Li, along with Robert Proctor and Luo Si, also professors at Purdue, lead a National Science Foundation (NSF)-funded project "User-Centric Risk Communication and Control on Mobile Devices," that investigates computer security. The work pays special attention to user control of security features in mobile systems.

Li, Proctor and Si believe they may have a simple solution for users, who unknowingly allow voluntary access to their personal data.
