Group Flashing Gang Signs on 09/27/2014

As I was driving north on Wolcott early this morning around 4AM, I notice a group of 3 to 5 young men standing in the west side alley just south of Warner. As I drove closer one of the men ran out into the street flashing a gang sign. My friend who drove past about a minute later said the men yelled something at him. I called 911 and reported it.

  • Thanks for all the info--what's Lucky's?

  • Luckys is a little grocery store on Lincoln next to the currency exchange. The kids hang out there after school.

    And don't forget Lyft! Drivers are generally nicer than Uber. Either are miles above cabbies though.

    Don't support a corrupt institution! Ditch the cabs.

    If you haven't used Lyft before, here's a link to a code that will get you your first ride free up to $25: http://lyft.com/invited/JOSH1979 (this is not a soliciation or an advertisement as I do not work for Lyft. I just like the service).

Did anyone happen to get the details on what happened at

Lincoln and Addison last night around 7:30? I saw ambulance, fire truck and police. Looked like they were removing a bicycle from the roadway and someone was on the ground. I really, really hope the person is okay.

  • Neighborly1~ Values community.

    Mitzi, Could you clarify where this happened on Addison? Between Rockwell and what street? Thanks

  • Western. It was in front of Lane during the homecoming game, but students were not involved.

Found male gray tabby w white socks, Western & Irving

A sweet, LOUD male, gray tabby with white socks has been hanging around our neighborhood near Revere Park area Western/Irving for about a week, since early Sept. He has no collar, no tags and our vet found no chip. He's not neutered or declawed, but his claws are very worn. This is a very friendly cat - it seems like he must have been someone's pet. I feed him when he comes around, and he wants to come in, but...

A sweet, LOUD male, gray tabby with white socks has been hanging around our neighborhood near Revere Park area Western/Irving for about a week, since early Sept. He has no collar, no tags and our vet found no chip. He's not neutered or declawed, but his claws are very worn. This is a very friendly cat - it seems like he must have been someone's pet. I feed him when he comes around, and he wants to come in, but doesn't want to stay. He's a little bit of a neighborhood nuisance because he mrowls on everyone's porches at night. If he's yours, or you'd like him, email me at kleckron@gmail.com. I can try to catch him again and return him to you, otherwise I'll catch him this weekend and take him to PAWS.

  • Well , nobody came forward to claim him. After a couple weeks of feeding him and providing a sleeping box on the porch, we delivered him to the Animal Welfare League shelter today. They accept strays and are a no-kill shelter, with no wait list. Hopefully they can help him find a forever home, and he'll not be out to fend for himself as the weather gets colder.

  • Kristine Cloud 30 year resident of North Center

    I'm glad he's safe and out of the soon-to-be cold. Thanks, Kristen, for taking care of this little guy!

Found, male gray tabby, Western & Irving

A sweet, LOUD male, gray tabby with four white socks has been hanging around our neighborhood near Revere Park, Western/Irving area, since early Sept. He has no collar, no tags and our vet found no chip. He's not neutered or declawed, but claws are very worn. Sweet, friendly cat - must have been someone's pet. I feed him and he wants in, but won't stay. He's a bit of a neighborhood nuisance because he's so loud. If he's yours or you want him, claim him at kleckron@gmail.com. Otherwise I will catch him & take him to PAWS this weekend.

  • Nobody claimed the little guy, so after taking care of him and looking for the owner, we delivered him to Animal Welfare League today - they take strays, no wait list, and they're a no kill shelter.

Phenominal Designer Showhourse right behind my apartment in No. Center/Ravenswood

Hi Neighbors, I live on the 4000 n. block of Paulina (12 yrs.) I don't post often but wanted to tell people there is a designer show-house right in our neighborhood -usually they are in the burbs. Totally worth seeing! You can get plenty of ideas for decorating; colors, textures, fabrics, decor placement and just going through the house is a beautiful experience.The designers are so very nice and informative. So glad I went. They are only open until the 30th. The proceeds go towards prevention of Child Abuse so a lot of love went into this. Wish the mayor would come to see this- after all he lives on the street.

Peruvian Restaurant in "Expressions" spot?

Does anyone know whats going on at 4020 N. Lincoln? It's the storefront across from Starbucks that has had signage in the windows for years saying "Expressions, coming soon". I heard from the owner of Coles Appliances next door that it is being built out as a Peruvian restaurant. Does anyone have the scoop?

  • CJL ...

    They can't really be planning to use the whole 8,000+ sf for the restaurant, can they?

  • Looks like they have really made a lot of progress. I went by there today and saw the crew removing the plywood construction facade.

Why is schurz high school rated so bad??

Anyone know ? It's rated a 1 out of 10. 10 being the best

  • My son is going to high school next year & i'm doing my research on H.S. Schurz is been in probation for the past 10 years. Really sad.

  • Catbus Philosopher, Third-Class

    I'm not sure what other result one should expect when a district academically tracks kids into separate schools rather than within each of them.

Lost parakeet? Or some sort of bird

I found what appeared to be small parakeet or canary or some sort of domesticated bird at the Northwest corner of Irving and Leavitt this morning. I'm not a bird person, so not sure on the kind, but it was small and greenish/yellow. I moved it out of the street into the flower bed that is right there. Hopefully it'll stay there until found.

  • There were signs about a bird that matched that description around the Marshfield and Waveland intersection recently.
