Catalytic Converter Thieves

With the warm weather, the thieves come out at night. Sometime after midnight and before dawn, thieves that steal catalytic converters come out. It takes them less than a minute to go under the car with a SawzAll and cut out the catalytic converter. The targeted vehicles have been 2000-2003 models of Honda CRV, Nissan SUV, Pontiac Grand Am & Chevy Cavalier. Best advice is to always activate the car alarm & keep an eye out for anyone walking with tools in the middle of the night. Call 911 if anyone seems suspicious.

Looking for Buyer's Agent

We are looking to buy a large property in the 60656, 60631, or 60646 zip codes. We are looking for someone not afraid to work. This means we need someone who has a sharp eye and a good grasp of negotiating tactics. We seek a property that can double as a home dog boarding business. My husband was a contractor, so he is willing to buy a fixer upper, within reason.

  • I can tell you who not to use!! Kathy O Sullivan, Konig/Strey. Dishonest, does not listen, more like a schiester car salesperson.

  • I second Lisa sanders

I-90 Canfield exit at Higgins poses danger

The Canfield exit off westbound I-90 onto Higgins is very dangerous. Not only is it a blind spot for exiting vehicles but also for east bound Higgins Rd. vehicles. Many cars who exit drive westbound in the eastbound lanes posing a serious threat of head-on collision. Drivers on Higgins should be aware of this & use caution at that site. I photographed one wrong way driver who exited I-90 and I posted it on my twitter site which is William Pelarenos@policeproject1

    Since you are no longer allowed to turn left onto Octavia off of westbound Higgins (since the early 1980s), they do allow for a U-turn once westbound and eastbound lanes once again become adjacent just west of the 2-flats. But people behind you on westbound Higgins get pissed off that...

    Since you are no longer allowed to turn left onto Octavia off of westbound Higgins (since the early 1980s), they do allow for a U-turn once westbound and eastbound lanes once again become adjacent just west of the 2-flats. But people behind you on westbound Higgins get pissed off that you have come to a dead stop in the middle of the road and there is honking, swearing and the occasional rear-ending. But of course you also have the buttheads who just don't care that you have to drive a few hundred feet into oncoming traffic on the wrong side of the road in order to turn left onto Octavia off of westbound Higgins and do it anyway. (And about 4 out of 5 times the ones doing that are cops who are too lazy to go down a little further and make the U-turn.)

    They also made the exit too short from the time you reach the top of the exit to where the stop sign is to accommodate Octavia and drivers exiting the expressway rear-end people stopped at the stop sign at least 2-3x a month.

    As much as i do understand and agree about the Canfield exit, the "solution" they put in place for the same problematic design at the old Harlem exit is a freaking nightmare!! Oh and the Einstein that designed the "new" version of the Harlem exit wn an award for it, too. Pfff!

    I agree completely that the Canfield exit is dangerous. I have seen debris from accidents there and I have seen people driving westbound in the eastbound lanes when they exit the ramp. The angle of the ramp makes it hard to see westbound traffic, especially with blindspots in the car...

    I agree completely that the Canfield exit is dangerous. I have seen debris from accidents there and I have seen people driving westbound in the eastbound lanes when they exit the ramp. The angle of the ramp makes it hard to see westbound traffic, especially with blindspots in the car due to the curtain airbag enclosures. I prefer to exit I-90 at Harlem and take Bryn Mawr west. I also try to avoid Higgins eastbound between Canfield and Oriole, opting to go south on Oriole down to Higgins, when convenient. They should have changed the exit when they were rebuilding the Canfield bridge.

Scam Artists targeting senior citizens

Senior citizens are being conned by scam artists to give thousands of dollars to complete strangers. They receive phone calls that their relatives need $5,000 to get out of jail because they have been involved on an accident. Unfortunately, the senior citizens have been fooled and lost their money. Warn all seniors not to give any money to anyone that calls, hang up and call 911 to report the incident.

Massive Potholes on Bridge

There are so many potholes on the East River Rd. Bridge over the Kennedy Expressway and not one has been repaired. Last week, I saw a car stopped on the bridge due to a blown out tire.

Lost Dog

Is anyone looking for their dog. I found a black lab around 2:00 on Ardmore near Oriole.

  • Whahoooo!! Awesome news! Patty's info regarding Animal Control is totally accurate! It seems the staff do not have a conscience!

    They previously had a no kill policy, except for sick and untreatable animals and ones that were not rehabilitatable (about 10 years ago), and focused a lot on adoption events. With all the cut backs, politics, and lack of interest, all went down hill. I'd make it know to others...

    They previously had a no kill policy, except for sick and untreatable animals and ones that were not rehabilitatable (about 10 years ago), and focused a lot on adoption events. With all the cut backs, politics, and lack of interest, all went down hill. I'd make it know to others to make the trip to their facility on south Western and give one of these pups a good home. I know they try to contact rescues for breed specific dogs and still have an event at all the Chicago Wolves games. Unfortunately this facility is victim to typical politics and the animals suffer. In spite of it's conditions, I'd encourage people to help one of these animals frind a forever home if at all possible. There is an organization called Freinds of Animal and Control that do try to help. Hoping for a better future for this place, maybe it will get privitized too to an organization that sincerely cares. They see alot of horrible things done to animals left there or found on the streets. There are some awful people out there who do unspeakable things to animals. I really hope something changes there, and we come up with some really strick laws and punishment for people who abuse or neglect animals.
