Sunday Newspaper Thief - 809 N Racine

Around 7:10am this morning someone stole the Sunday Newspaper from outside our door. Does this older gentleman really value his integrity at $3.00 (the cost of a Sunday Trib). Someone typically steals the paper at least once a month. We have since installed a security camera and have a video of the incident; however, the video is not detailed enough to truly make out his face. Maybe you can make out. Here are links to the video

Really tired of moving into places that haven't been cleaned properly and am offering up 50+ years of advice. Forget all the thousands of cleaning products and just use these: (I'm not affiliated with any of these products, I just know that if you maintain-- even a rental little cleaning issues never become big ones and when I move in it wont be so hard...)

Clorox Clean-up with bleach spray. Miracle product. Spray on dark corners(mold) in the shower leave overnight. Spray on darkened dust filled floorboards leave a minute and wipe away. Use lightly for every type of cleaning. The best product money can buy.

Plain old Clorex. Need to clean venetian blinds? Fill bathtub with water add bleach and soak the whole blind. Cleans to new condition in a couple of hours.

Wood surfaces-- light colored use Murphy's Wipes (not the bottled kind) dark surfaces Method's Wood Wipes.

Glass showers spray Method Daily shower spray after every shower (2.99)another miracle. For those plastic floor trays after using Method spray a while, use Mr. Clean sponge erasures and scrub away stains. After initial cleaning, you wont have to do this often.

Stainless cleaning Nano stainless spray.

Lime buildup around sinks and knobs, Durgol from sur la table. Cost $20 a bottle lasts for years--Miracle!

When moving into a place that previously had a pet--spray Siphor plus II Fat-Acting Spray (Amazon.com) around perimeter. Dries fast non toxic kills almost all bugs.

Invest in one of those $39.00 Furnace cleans sold on Amazon local.com. Totally worth it, to clean out dust buildup. As well, buy those 99cent furnace filters and change the first of every month. (If you change every month you don't need the expense ones.

Is there a new(er) club near Chicago/Halsted?

Hi everyone. I live at Chicago/Lessing and every Sunday night (aka early Monday morning) between the hours of 1:30-4am there is a LOT of new and unnecessary noise outside of our building. People parking on Chicago Ave that are attending this Sunday night event are being loud and disruptive (fighting, yelling, sounding relatively intoxicated) and also honking their horns and blocking traffic by talking to each other in their cars side-by-side (subsequently causing more honking...)

This has been going on...

This has been going on for about four weeks. We have never had this issue, and there a quite a few nearby mid rise apartments that are inhabited by young families as our apartment building is. It is extremely irritating and inconvenient as it wakes everyone up in the middle of the evening.

We have written the alderman but would like to speak with the person who owns/manages whatever event or event space this is coming from to deal with it in a polite manner before getting the police involved.

I know there is an event space on the southwest corner of Chicago/Halsted (underneath the Girl Scout cookie building) and I assume that's where this is coming from? If anyone has any insight I would greatly appreciate it.
