Criminals Broke Through My Garage To Steal My Bicycle From My Basement 3200 Block W crystal

A week ago Wednesday, criminals pried the top of my garage door to get at the emergency release to go through the garage to get into my back lard (back gate has double lock). Then they went under a porch and carefully broke out a window and stole my Felt MP bicycle (see picture) and a few hand tools. They returned the very next night but I secured the emergency release on the garage door so they ripped holes into the sides of my garage until they made a 12 by 18 inch hole to clime through. This time they were prepared with transportation and removed my snow thrower, air compressor and a stove among smaller items. My garage door had to be replaced because they tried to pry it up destroying it in the process. Please look at my bicycle because it is very rare and only a few sold in Chicago I believe. Thank You.

Maldonado must go! Let's All Get On the Same Page

For those of us who would like to see Alderman MALdonado ousted, I suggest that we 'get on the same page' for the upcoming elections in February if we wish to succeed.

Currently, there are 2 other candidates running against MALdonado. One is Juanita Irizarry and the other is Adam Corona.

The problem with having 2 other opponents is that they could very well "split the vote" thereby allowing MALdonado a win. Yes, I understand that the winner must still secure at least 50% of the vote, and I personally do not wish to see a run-off election (thinking of taxpayer dollars here.)

Remember, the goal is to OUST MALdonado!

My intention with this post is NOT to get into a deep discussion about either candidate, because this is exactly what will lead to a vote split! Bear with me here.... At face value, Irizarry seems way ahead of Corona in terms of community involvement. Also, I spoke with several community leaders that I respect, and they highly recommend Irizarry.
And, one community leader even indicated to me that s(he) has asked Corona to withdraw from the election specifically to avoid a vote-split. If you are not a fan of second-hand information, then I hereby officially ask Adam Corona to withdraw from the election and throw his support behind Irizarry.

So, I suggest that we throw our combined support behind Irazziry. No, I do not work for her. I have never even met her. I just took a quick look at both candidates with info on the Internet and this blog-site. I don't want to over-complicate it. Unless some egregious info surfaces about Irizarry before election day, she's getting my vote. Remember, the goal is to defeat MALdonado. And based on what I am seeing, I think Irazziry is the stronger of the 2 candidates.

Let's do it, together! Let's send MALdonato packing - well deserved and overdue!

    You do not seem to have the political connection people expect from politicians but you could develop business connections and that is where you could win. We do not need more politicians. We need better business community so that we can give people jobs and bring them up from their low income and unemployed situation. The present situation is a trap. More low income and unemployed people in an area without jobs is a disaster. More jobs will attract voters.

    I know a politician who have extensive experiences competing in elections for alderman positions in the city of Chicago. If you get started I will put you in contact with this person.

    So if you register yourselves as a contesting alderman and start approaching business let's meet and discuss the competing strategy with the goal to win the election of being the next alderman in Humboldt Park.

    I look froward to hear weather you really are interested or not. It will need a lot of work but then you will get an income of about 100K for as long as you can grab on to the alderman position.

    Also, I have extensive experience in building powerful support for new ideas through local, national and international campaigns.

    With all due respect for Nice Neighbor but the deadline for signature turn in is this Monday the 24th. Any contestant would need to provide around 460 confirmed registered voters from the ward who have not signed for another candidate using petitions provided to them by the board of elections. As the three candidates that are running have already submitted these petitions the odds of finding the needed amount, confirming them and getting them notarized is virtually impossible. At this stage it is more productive to learn about those who are running so people can begin the discourse about what the ward needs.

I want your happy chickens eggs!

Anyone in Humboldt Park raising chickens, interested selling eggs? I am located around Division and Spaulding and would love to buy some local eggs. Sadness eggs are the pitts. I go through a dozen eggs every two weeks or so.

  • mb in ukie village longtime resident of Ukrainian Village

    "Sadness eggs" ? Why, because of how the chickens are treated? If it's eggs from humanely treated chickens you want, make sure you check out the Amish supplier. Some Amish have been caught mistreating their farm animals and for running puppy mills.

  • I would recommend signing up with FarmMatch dot com, it gives a list of local farms, what they sell, and "drop points" where you can pick up your happy eggs, etc. You customize your food preferences (as in if you are vegetarian, you don't select the farms who are selling only meat) so that you only see the farms that are selling what you're after. There are more than a couple of drop points near you, including a friend of mine at Kedzie and Spaulding.

Tuxedo cat seen and outdoor cat shelter needed

Is anyone missing a tuxedo cat? I'm assuming it's a stray because it's relatively thin. She's a really friendly cat though. She let me pet her when I walked up to her and rolled on her belly for me to pet it.

I didn't bring her inside because I'm pretty sure she's a stray and my cats would kill her, but I just wanted to post this just in case.

On that note, does anyone make winter cat shelters? I know they're easy to make and I can do it myself but if anyone has any handy I'd like to put some in my area for the season.

Thanks!

You guys have been so awesome with these donations. Last time I dropped them off, the woman who runs the shelter had tears in her eyes and said please tell those Everyblock folks "thank you" and how much this means to us and the animals.

The animal shelter is in need again so I'm making another round picking up donations if you're able to donate/have old linens laying around.

This open-access shelter has very little funds and takes in many animals. They also provide a pet pantry for people who can't afford dog/cat food for their pets. It's so sad when you see people drop off their loved pets because they no longer can afford them. This pet pantry, which is running very, very low, helps keeps animals in their loving homes (and out of these open-access shelters).

Here's a list of items they need most:
- dog and cat food (any kind)
- treats to help fatten up the underweight dogs (actual dog treats or Aldi hot dogs are good, cheaper option)
- calming toys (such as stuffed animals or kongs and peanut butter - please no squeeky/stimulating toys)
- used (clean) towels, sheets and blankets for dogs/cats to lay on in the cages they're in basically 24/7. It helps lower their stress and gives them comfort.
- medications your pet didn't finish. These animals often come in sick from being on the street -- any antibiotics, pain pills or supplements help. There is a vet there that prescribes them and will use donated meds appropriately.
- Rescue Remedy or other calming supplements/sprays etc. (shelter life can be stressful)
- dog leashes, collars

I can pick up donations from your house Friday (8/1)12-1:30pm or 5-7pm. Or you are welcome to drop off at my place near North ave and California today 7/28 after 5pm or Wednesday after 7pm. Please message me for details.

Thank you SO MUCH for your generosity. The dogs and cats thank you.

I'll be dropping off the donations on Sat Oct 25, so there's plenty of time. I can pick up at your house or you can drop off at mine (near North and California Aves - message me for phone number and address).

Here's the list:
- dog or cat beds
- towels, blankets, anything clean, warm and fuzzy they can lay on
- treats of any kind
- dog and cat food (for the pet food pantry so people in need can keep their beloved animals and those animals stay out of these kinds of kill shelters)
- toys: chew toys (like nyla bones or kongs) and non-stimulant stuffed toys (no squeekers please - gets them too riled up in their cages)
- puppy potty training pads (there's a huge shortage of workers/volunteers, so they don't get walked often. If they have these, it means they don't have to sit in their pee/feces and it helps reduce the spread of disease.
- cleaning products of any kind to help keep the place disinfected
- heating pads (for kittens, bunnies or even the little squirrels they help nurse back to health)
- leftover dog or cat medicines or vitamins

I was just there on Monday and would love to get them stocked up on towels/beds etc so all the animals have somewhere warm and comfortable to lay (it really helps reduce stress for them).

I've attached some pictures from the last run I did for donations from you great folks! You can see the animals really love the blankets and beds! :)

And if you're thinking of adopting or want to foster some of these sweet babies, hit me up! More foster homes = we can get more of these animals out of kill shelters!

Thanks so much folks!

    That is why....we need an OFFICIAL neighborhood map. It could be superimposed on top of the 77 communities map. This would make a static and legal map so residents could be assured that if $$ was allocated to their neighborhood...that the neighborhood got it instead of it migrating elsewheres.

    I think there are approx 200 unofficial neighborhoods. Perhaps wiki unofficial neighborhoods and see what is on that list.

  • We live in the area and it's been dubbed West Bucktown. (Between North and Armitage, Western and California.) Although technically it is Humboldt Park if you are South of Bloomingdale and Logan Square if you are North of Bloomingdale. Whatever you call, we love it and have lived here from 11 years and our raising our three children here. I also own a business in the area.

A committee sounds like a wonderful idea (inviting all opinions) to sort out 2015 plans. Run the idea through your Alderman's office and invite the CAPS Beat representative as well. Organize!

Needles in the Humboldt - Can we at least the the special sharps containers for disposal?

Over the last week I have encountered 4 needles, laying around open without caps at various, some heavy traffic places in Humboldt Park( Fieldhouse east side, Water statue at Allstate arena, the pond at Allstate Arena).

Any idea how to get some of those Sharp containers in the park at the obvious places I just mentioned? with all the leaves and kids playing in them, it's got me worried

    I think there is a news person Susan Leminoin or something like that who would have an interest. She is the one who did the news story about the HEROIN HUT in Garfield Park and her nightly news sstory got it shut down the next day.

    It makes no sense city workers would pick up trash like paper and cups and food...and leave the haz mat material behind so children can step on them!!!!

    I am serious about that. Do the easy part. Leave the hard part...that is HAZ MAT. HAZARDOUS MATERIALS NEED TO BE REMOVED......!!!!! Does anyone on this blog understand that these needles are HAZARDOUS MATERIALS????

    Perhaps the Chicago Doe could come in and take a look and require the Park district to clean up the needes. Email john.kryl@cityofchicago.org and ask. "How should used needles be removed from the Chicago Park District?"

    This is a crazy city. Pay people to do work and they SLACK. The park workers on that route as well as CPD who knows herin use is present should be called to task!!!!

    Why make it part of the contract that you don't have to be a veteran to live here?

    Why say it is 4 stories when clearly from the architects renderings it is 5 stories?

    Why would it cost $400,000 /unit for basic housing?

    Why build it on the property of Norwegian American Hospital (which has been on that site for over 100 years) and then name it something Puerto Rican?

    Why are these things always built by the same 3 developers, and always use the same lawyers to pass the "zoning change"?

    Why don't the alderman in other wards build subsidized housing for their veterans?

    This has become the tried-and-true formulaic way that elected officials in Humboldt and Logan can shift millions of tax dollars to their friends and family.

    BTW, as Johnathon Gruber was quoted last week, the ..."voters are too stupid to know the difference". That's why Chicago politicians steal from the taxpayer, not banks and individuals.
