Cat found at Argyle & Wolcott

Black and white cat found at 1:30 AM at the intersection of Argyle and Wolcott. Aged 2-5 approximately, no collar, no chip. Sex not determined. Frostbitten nose. Still has claws. Very affectionate. Please help to find the family he/she belongs to!

  • Tree House is helping to the extent they can by posting the cat on its Facebook page. No, they can't take it into the shelter because it has FeLV.

    "Specialize in strays"? Is there a pet rescue that doesn't?

  • I would encourage you to call around to as many shelters and rescues as you can before turning the kitty into CACC. Many people have felv + cats and are looking for companions for theirs. Sometimes shelters have this information and can put you in touch with a potential adopter....

    I would encourage you to call around to as many shelters and rescues as you can before turning the kitty into CACC. Many people have felv + cats and are looking for companions for theirs. Sometimes shelters have this information and can put you in touch with a potential adopter. If you can keep your cat separate from the kitty you rescued that is ideal. Perhaps the rescued kitty could stay in the bathroom. Transmission of felv is through close contact (biting, grooming...through saliva) so if you can keep the kitties separate for the time being that is best. I have 4 cats and have had an felv + rescue temporarily stay with me, kept separate, and all my cats remain healthy. Good luck and bless your heart for helping this sweet kitty.

eReviews Dyman Associates Publishing Inc: 'Whipping Boy' by Allen Kurzweil

When a middle-class Jewish boy from New York enrolled at a Swiss boarding school in 1971, the lessons in swordsmanship and elocution were hardly the strangest things he encountered. Unchaperoned boys were often sent with minimal supplies on expeditions into the frozen Alps for multiple days.

Younger boys, barefoot and without gloves, cleaned pubic hair and dirty gunk from the drains of the common showers (which dispensed cold water). And once the doors in the dormitories closed each night, supervision,...

When a middle-class Jewish boy from New York enrolled at a Swiss boarding school in 1971, the lessons in swordsmanship and elocution were hardly the strangest things he encountered. Unchaperoned boys were often sent with minimal supplies on expeditions into the frozen Alps for multiple days.

Younger boys, barefoot and without gloves, cleaned pubic hair and dirty gunk from the drains of the common showers (which dispensed cold water). And once the doors in the dormitories closed each night, supervision, minimal as it was, ceased.

Even faint rumors of the behavior in the anecdotes from Allen Kurzweil's new memoir, "Whipping Boy," would trigger lawsuits today. Kurzweil's roommates forced him to swallow painful quantities of hot sauce; they whipped him with a belt while playing "The Thirty-Nine Lashes" from "Jesus Christ Superstar;" they hurled his most treasured possession, an irreplaceable family heirloom from his deceased father, out the window of their fifth-story room. The worst of the bullies threatened to throw Kurzweil out the window as well.

"Boys will be boys" doesn't capture the gravity of their behavior; "boys will be sadistic little monsters whose victims suffer lifelong trauma" is more precise. Suffice it to say that boarding school made a lasting impression on Kurzweil. He was a middle-class Jewish kid from New York, but his peers were the sons and daughters of bankers, aristocrats and heirs to vast fortunes. He was soon nicknamed "Nosey" in sneering tribute to his Jewish roots.

I found a lost cat on Monday evening at the intersection of Argyle and Wolcott. It is a male cat, black and white, aged 2-5 years old. He has since been neutered since being in my care, he still has claws and no microchip or collar. After taking him to Treehouse, we have discovered he is FeLV positive and I can no longer keep him in my home due to owning a cat already. I am looking for ANYONE at all who can help in any way. I have found a suitable overnight boarding situation but otherwise, he will be sent to animal care and control and his diagnosis will result in euthanizing. I am looking for anyone who may know the owner of this cat, has any resources to find a foster, or can aid in helping to get this guy a home. Please let me know if anyone can help this guy out at all!!!!! Thank you!!!

  • FIV and FeLV are two different things. Cats who are FIV+ can live with FIV- cats and, if they coexist peacefully (i.e., don't draw blood), will not infect them. FeLV is feline leukemia, and it is highly contagious. It can be spread by very casual contact. FeLV will destroy a cat's immune system much more quickly than FIV, and FIV+ cats can live long, healthy lives.

  • Feline Friends might be able to help or at least advise. You can google them and send an email to Toni or Lisa. They'll reply to you. Thank you for trying to help this kitty!

Live Better Longer

Take advantage of Medicare's new preventive health care.

Diabetes, asthma, heart disease and other chronic health conditions can ruin your plans for an active, fulfilling retirement. Beyond limiting what you can do, such disorders are very costly and may cut deeply into your retirement funds. Preventive care can help on both counts — now it's more affordable than ever. Medicare expanded its roster of free preventive services in 2010, eliminating co-payments and deductibles for many of them. This guide can help you take advantage of preventive services available to you at no charge under traditional Medicare and most Medicare Advantage plans.

Speed Cameras on Foster

I am not sure if this topic has been covered before, but I have a question about all the speed cameras, especially on Foster. Is the city equipped with cameras that record your speed on the side in which the camera is located, or can the cameras record car speeds from across the street? I have researched this a bit and found that over in the UK there are speed cameras that can record from both sides of the highway/street. But I am not sure if it's the same for the city. Does anyone know for sure?

  • Thanks all! And yes, Jen A I was referring to the one by Kedzie.

  • fran long time neighbor

    Thank you Damian R, this has been my issue all along. If you are staying within the posted limit, then you really have nothing to worry about. And if you obey the traffic light, the red light camera should not bother you!

Candidates want higher wages, cheaper housing in 46th Ward

Ald. James Cappleman [46th] battled for a second term against two challengers at a Jan. 22 46th Ward candidates’ forum at Demera Restaurant, 4801 N. Broadway.

...The housing we did lose was market rate. Extremely substandard, The Norman Apartments (1325 W. Wilson) was already 40% vacant. And Lawrence House (1020 W. Lawrence) had hundreds of code violations...

This article has 3 other Chicago locations (Show)

...Extremely substandard, The Norman Apartments (1325 W. Wilson) was already 40% vacant. And Lawrence House (1020 W. Lawrence) had hundreds of code violations. I could no longer vote there because of the bedbugs...

And “when the new owner bough the Chateau Apartments (3838 N. Broadway), the residents there paid zero rent and Catholic Charities helped them find other units that didn’t have bedbugs. The owner bought new mattresses for them when they did move and helped them with their moving expenses."

Crawford said she’s got some ideas, but no real plan to offer at this point. “But if I’m elected, I’ll build it around key intersections, Wilson and Broadway, Lawrence and Broadway, Buena Park. Neighborhood by Neighborhood.”

5 Gründe, Warum, Die Ihr Kreditkartenantrag Abgelehnt

Seien wir ehrlich: eine Kreditkarte, die Ihren Bedürfnissen entspricht zu finden kann schwierig sein. Wenn Ihr Antrag abgelehnt wird, ist es natürlich, sich ein wenig verstimmt – vor allem, wenn Sie nicht sicher sind, warum wurden Sie verweigert.

Hier sind fünf Gründe, die Kreditkartenabrechnungen abgelehnt bekommen, und was Sie dagegen tun können.

1. Ihre Kredit-Score ist zu niedrig.

Das erste, was zu tun ist, der Emittent anrufen, und Fragen, warum Ihr Antrag abgelehnt wurde. Unter der Equal Credit Opportunity Act müssen Sie eine kreditgebende Stelle den Grund für die Ablehnung Ihrer Darlehen oder Kredit Anwendung geben. Sie müssen innerhalb von 60 Tagen nach Mitteilung bitten. Eine der häufigsten Antworten ist, dass ein Möchtegern Karteninhaber Kredit-Score zu niedrig ist.

Alle Informationen über Sie, die Kartenherausgeber auswerten, ist Ihre Kredit-Score die wichtigste. Diese dreistellige Nummer, die von 300 (schlimmsten) bis 850 (am besten) reicht, stellt dar, wie verantwortungsvoll Sie mit geliehenem Geld in der Vergangenheit gewesen sind. Je höher Ihre Punktzahl, die mehr kreditwürdig du bist.

Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield. A veteran in the health insurance industry, Anthem has been around even before the launch of the Affordable Care Act website 3 years ago. In fact, it has registered over 18,000 Maine citizens as individual clients (i.e. customers who bought their own coverage instead of getting it through work benefits). Their enrolment rates is almost twice as high as their closest rival which is not surprising since they are getting corporate backing from WellPoint, one of the national health insurers with a big market share.

CPD in alley btw Warner and Belle Plaine, 1400 block, any info?

5 cruisers, 2:30-3pm on Monday afternoon. Two parked in our parking pad, three cruising alley. Husband went out and talked to them. They told him there was no problem and asked him why he was out. Well, because you are parked on our property. CPD responded with a good laugh and said, good point! And then went back to business.

I can only assume something related to uptick in tagging in the area. Or could it be they are onto my old, drunk neighbor that is a danger to the whole neighborhood with his driving? Joking aside, anyone know anything?

  • I don't have any info. on why they were in the alley, but I did notice a high level of police in the area while I was out walking my dog around 5:00.

A little bit ago, a man knocked on our door on the 4900 block of N Hoyne with a story that he'd been locked out of his apartment, left his keys & $$ inside, his girlfriend is at work until 7am...tall, caucasian, blonde, smelled strongly of cigarette smoke, gray sweatpants. We have reported it to police. Said his phone was out of juice but when we offered to charge it, it showed plenty of life. We didn't let him in but called a locksmith for him...locksmith has just called us back to say he didn't meet them at the address he indicated he lived and isn't answering the phone, so now we're pretty suspicious. Not sure what his intentions are, but something just feels wrong about his story and wanted to give folks the heads up in case he's up to no good. If you get a similar knock on your door, please alert 911 and probably best not to let him in.
