Walking Dogs Off Leash in NW Edgewater Glen

There seems to be a little upsurge in this along/around Glenwood, Rosemont, and Wayne.
A neighbor mentioned that she's having difficulty walking her dog who is leash aggressive because they are often surprised by dogs trotting down the street half a block or so ahead of their owners. I haven't had this experience recently, but I usually try to walk my dog when other people aren't out with theirs because mine is a rescue who is terrified by strangers.

Thoughts? Observations?

  • I usually call 311 and they transfer me.

  • I emailed Harry Osterman's office about this, and he put me in touch with the 48th ward's public liaison. Here's what he said:

    "The best thing to do in this situation is to call 911 to report the unleashed dog, whenever permissible. He will be fined if the police catch him. If you have a picture [of the owner], i can forward it to the beat officers so they can keep an eye out for him as well."

    Hope this is helpful to some of you.

What Can I Do?

I Have Called 24th District On Several Occasions About My Down Stairs Neighbor Having The Building Smell Like Marijuana. I Explain That There Is Kids And Families Who Live In The Building. 24th District Always Tells Me Somebody Will Be There In 15 Minutes & No One Ever Shows Up. It Occasionally Smells Like They Are Smoking & Growing It. And They Still Do Nothing! I Wanted To Know What Else I Could Do In Order To Get Someone Here When There Is A Arroma Of Marijuana In The Air.

  • @sarahb, I didn't start a post about evicting my neighbor's children, now did I?

  • No. U r right. I sent it to the wrong person. I am sorry

Bus to Andersonville?

There are two bus stops on Granville but I get confused (don't ask why) which side I need to be on to take the bus to Andersonville. One stop is in front of the Ann Sathers place and then there is one bus stop in front of CVS. Both off of Granville and Broadway.

Which stop should I wait at to go to Andersonville? Thank you in advanced.

  • DK Living and Playing in Chicago

    Thanks again! How far is the walk then from the bus stop? Is it the 22 or the 36 that can take you there?

  • You're welcome :) It's a few blocks from the 36 bus stop on Broadway to the main shopping/dining/etc area of A'Ville on Clark street. (the 22 runs N and S on Clark St)

Support needed with fundraising for animal welfare

Hello all. As a high school kid I liked running every now and then. I liked the heart pumping feeling while enjoying the view of Lake Michigan. I grew up in my home at Broadway and Granville, from where I would run to the Lake Trail that begins around Thorndale and jog all the way down to Belmont Ave.
A couple years after H.S (Senn High School) an idea of running a Marathon floated around in my head but it...

Hello all. As a high school kid I liked running every now and then. I liked the heart pumping feeling while enjoying the view of Lake Michigan. I grew up in my home at Broadway and Granville, from where I would run to the Lake Trail that begins around Thorndale and jog all the way down to Belmont Ave.
A couple years after H.S (Senn High School) an idea of running a Marathon floated around in my head but it never was strong enough and I had other priorities. Several years passed and in 2013 I ran the Chicago Half Marathon. After that, I decided to run the full Bank Of America Chicago Marathon in 2014.
One growing desire that I've had is to get involved with Animal Welfare. I love animals, I think they have a lot of love to give and they bring joy to many people. They are also unfortunately the most vulnerable to becoming victims and suffer neglect, abuse, cruelty, etc. They cant defend themselves but there are many people and organizations that stand up for them and bring them happiness. One of those organizations is The Anti-Cruelty Society. They help over 50,000 animals and people every year through its many efforts. They have been around for more than 100 years. I know multiple people who have adopted from them and now have loving 4 legged companions. They always organize wonderful events to raise money and awareness (many of which me and my pet have enjoyed), like doggy street parades, 5K's, Canine Cruises among many others.

I decided that running on behalf of The Anti-Cruelty Society is the perfect way for me to add a little block to the building of a more happy community of animals and people.

I have a goal of raising $1000. Please check out my page: http://tinyurl.com/o8plx6u
No donation is too small, and it will go a long way in helping our tail wagging friends.
If you cant donate money, please share this page with someone who might be able to contribute. We also accept words of support and good vibes.

Thank You.

  • brandon sheridan walker

    sounds like Bark in the Park would be a perfect fit for you.....pledge page & all....next year's event is May 2, 2015 at Montrose Beach.

  • Thanks Brandon. My current fundraising ends a week before the Marathon. October 5.
    I did partcipate in Bark in the Park this year and plan to go every year.

Snow Removal

Does anyone know of a reliable snow removal service for a small 6 unit condo building?

  • id recommend SGS. they are local rogers park guys and provide excellent service. they have several trucks and drivers so they are reliable and fair with their pricing.
    you can contact Frank (773) 807-1528 or Mike (773) 406-4267.

  • I Had To Say It Reality does not equal negativity.

    Maybe ask your neighbors who they use? I often wondered why one company (or only a few) can't do it all in one-fell-swoop rather than converge like a helicopter raid as the various leaf blower ninjas do on a beautiful Summer morning. Maybe they'd offer a large group discount if the neighbors all got together (?).

    I got the same call but in a voicemail message, where they threatened me with legal action if I did not get back to them. I knew it was a scam and looked up the number and followed up some suggested links to report it to the FTC. I reported the call to the FTC. Someone else on the FTC comments section they have for this particular IRS scam said the number was provided by a certain communications company. I wrote to the company on their website detailing the exact report language I had given to the FTC and they said I would no longer get calls from that number. It was a 202 DC area code.

Employment for high school students

I'm a high school teacher working closely with Juniors and Seniors this year (16-18 year olds) and am hoping to help them find after school jobs. Though we've only known each other for a little over two weeks, I've been incredibly impressed by the maturity of my students and the potential they have. Many of their families are in need of financial support, and these students are hoping to help (and hopefully develop skills and an employment history that will help them in the long run).

Could anyone advise of places that might be hiring this season or in the near future? I'd be happy to write detailed and honest recommendations on their behalf.

  • Thank you all for your suggestions. I'll look into the public library and Chicago parks. Also, thank you JeffHinkson, I'll ask for more information if any of my students are interested/qualified.

    If anything else comes up, please let me know.

Paying it forward, $50 off Tuft and Needle Mattress

Hi everyone,

Just moved back to the neighborhood and bought a new foam mattress online from Tuft and Needle. They make them in California and don't use any flame retardant chemicals. It shipped for free, has a 30 day easy return policy (they actually donate the mattress) and I haven't slept so comfortably in years! I'm totally thrilled with the quality. And it wasn't very expensive!

Anyway, they have me a coupon for $50 off to share with friends so I just thought I'd share it unless anyone else was interested. :)
