Shooting

Does anyone know what happened on 96th Pl. between Loomis and Throop? I heard about 7 gunshots followed by another 3. About 10 min. later, the ambulance. Went by and saw several CPD cars and paramedics

ReMap

I don't blame the residents west of Ashland / Berverly Ave for not wanting to be partitioned into the 21 Ward. Brookins does nothing for the ward but give the churches the funds that should go to commiunity improvement. Look at how the xmas lights on the trees go from Western and stop at Ashland and 95th. He'll take credit for the shopping centers at 87th. St.( Dan Ryan ) and the developement of the 83rd. Street malls ( Lowes ) but what people don't know is that the plans for that area into shopping and stores were on the books when DeVille was the ald.

  • A point of clarification, the 19th ward ends at 95th Ashland. Those lights are paid thru the Special Service Area on 95th street.

    A point of clarification, the 19th ward ends at 95th Ashland. Those lights are paid thru the Special Service Area on 95th street.

    As far as the 87th street mall neither the worst alderman ever Deville nor Brookins had anything to do with neither development on 87th street. Bothdevelopments pre date both Alderman. Everytime I hear Alderman Brookins, he makes it a point of blaming Chatham residents for what he calls sub par stores in the developments on 87th.

    Frankly, I think everyone who is taking credit for 83rd Holland at this moment will change their tune in a couple of years when things don't pan out the way they envisioned. The Walmart Express is not generating the business they hoped for and the other retailers in the area haven't rolled over like Walmart expected.

  • Scoopie Concerned citizen of the 21st. Ward

    I know that the 19th starts at 95th. and Ashland. The remap wants to push the 21st.Ward to just east of the Metra tracks ( just west of Longwood ). Those are the residents that DON'T want to belong to the 21st. I can,t blame them. And I believe you are correct about the 83rd.-87th. streets plan. I believe it was Jessie Evans who was Ald. at the time of the planning. Best we ever had.

Thank You

Operation Food Share 2011 Thanksgiving Basket Giveaway was a huge success. We were able to provide complete Thanksgiving dinners to over 4,000 people in the Chicagoland, Indiana and Benton Harbor, Michigan areas. We give a huge thank you to the Food Share, Logistics and Internal Security ministries, the many volunteers who took time out of their daily lives to assist in sorting and packing the food for distribution on Tuesday, and everyone who contributed food and monetary gifts to this worthwhile effort - you made it happen - and we are forever grateful!

Racoons

Racoons are everywhere~dead and alive. Secure the roof, fascia boards...of your garage and house. Ensure that garbage is properly disposed of. Put trash/garbage in bags. Keep aLL trash can lids closed. These rodents are dangerous!

    Are you Sure these are raccoons?or Possums?the City is full of them.I Just saw a all white possum.

    Both! Last year, I had just picked up some fish at the Family Den's inside food spot and saw it sitting on my neighbor's roof. I scurried around the corner to get into another door! It tried to get into mine. It was late summer and still plenty of light since it was only 6ish. It tried to get into my fascia boards. I had a handyman have to nail down some shingles that looked like they had been chewed on. Anyway, that was the one my neighbor had fits with. It was so bad they ate through the layers and they could see it when in their kitchen. It was watching them. They ended up getting rid of it but that raccoon set up shop across the street at another neighbor's house. They now have another raccoon that has completely destroyed the fascia boards and made two holes in their roof. It is huge! The city will only bring you a cage. As far as those other suckers, I just had one poke it's head out at me a few weeks ago in the evening as it was in one of my bushes. Scared me so bad, I entered my house through another entrance. It had a white face. I saw it as road kill the other day. One thing that helps is purchasing urine granules/pellets. You can find a canister at the hardware store. I believe I have the fox urine granules. I sprinkled them under my bushes and it kept the squirrels, which are so bad, as well as the birds away for a while. You have to reapply after it rains. The smell is strong and is a deterent.

  • K you are correct! Both, possums and raccoons are on the loose! I see them walking down the street during the day, lounging in the alley's on the trash cans, walking in pairs or groups of 4-5 searching the neighborhood...One ruined my roof in two places trying to get into...

    K you are correct! Both, possums and raccoons are on the loose! I see them walking down the street during the day, lounging in the alley's on the trash cans, walking in pairs or groups of 4-5 searching the neighborhood...One ruined my roof in two places trying to get into the house. I had to pay my handyman twice to repair two different holes. It is so annoying and scary. Someone mentioned a gel/powder you can buy at home depot, hardware...CRITTERS! You sprinkle it on your roof near the gutters. It suppose to burn their paws and keep them away. I think I'm going to invest in it real soon.

FYI, trash cans being searched for personal ID?

This morning at around 8 AM, I heard trash cans being opened and closed. I went out and found a guy going thru a neighbor's trash can. When I asked him what he was doing going thru the trash can, he said he would show me. I told him he should stop and that I was going to call the police. He then got belligerent and said I was targeting him because he was black. I called 911 and reported...

This morning at around 8 AM, I heard trash cans being opened and closed. I went out and found a guy going thru a neighbor's trash can. When I asked him what he was doing going thru the trash can, he said he would show me. I told him he should stop and that I was going to call the police. He then got belligerent and said I was targeting him because he was black. I called 911 and reported it and the the dispatcher said a car would be sent out and asked for a description. Here it is:

- Blue Dodge pickup loaded with alley "finds"
- Black male, about 35-40 yrs old, black hat, black jacket, black pants & white t-shirt.

I took a picture of him and his truck, but I couldn't get it to download. Shortly after I called the police, he drove away. I never did see a police car come thru the alley, but I don't have the best view from my house.

This fellow may be guilty of nothing, but he sure didn't act that way!?

  • Since there are fewer & fewer Police to patrol, why not keep your trash in your house along with your recyclables. On pick up day, take them out to the trucks when they arrive. So there you go, another "major" Beverly crime is solved!

  • Getting involved sends a clear message that certain behaviors won't be tolerated. You could have watched, hiding behind your curtains. Good for you for getting involved. You're neighbor is lucky to have you nearby.
