Looking for a short-term dogsitter

My wife and I are seeking someone to stop by our place to keep an eye on and tend to our 13-week old Morkie puppy. He's not quite used to being by himself all day, and unfortunately we need to be away.

Date: At least March 10-12, maybe a few more days on either side
Time: At least 5-6 hours/day
Where: Near Ravenswood and Wilson
Tasks: Keep an eye on him while he's in his pen; play with him; clean up after him; keep him fed; usual puppy stuff.

Just let us know a little about your background and your rates to chicodes101@gmail.com. Thanks!

  • Alpal30 Love Chicago

    My niece dog/cat/house sits. I will pass your email on to her. Her name is Elizabeth. She is 29 and can provide references.

Fraudulent Transfer

Cornerstone Research has experience in fraudulent transfer litigation brought by bankruptcy trustees and creditors of distressed companies. We have analyzed whether:

• The transaction left the company with an unreasonably small amount of capital.
• The company incurred debts beyond a company’s ability to repay in connection with the transaction.

We have also analyzed whether:

• A single counterparty had excessive influence on a company’s decision making.
• Boards of directors received sufficient information to make decisions.
• Risk management efforts provided inadequate protection against a counterparty bankruptcy.
• The company made adequate disclosures related to possible financial distress.

Headlight ticket

Yesterday I received a ticket from CPD for one of my headlights going out. I replaced the bulb today. Has anyone ever gotten one of these before? The language on the ticket is a little vague. Can I contest this once its fixed? Any guidance is helpful. Thanks.

  • Daniel Kelber Living the Good Life in Bowmanville

    The ticket will be dismissed if you bring a receipt to court. I know because I used to prosecute traffic tickets for the City.

  • I'm sure you did, but just in case - did you read the fine print on the ticket relating to the cited charge? Some 'fixable' citations specify how to have the ticket negated provided the problem is remedied. The courts don't want dockets crowded with cases that have no need to be there; this may be one, especially since as I understand it the light wasn't already burned out.

30 Lake View High School Students Headed to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

-LVHS Principal Celebrates Students for Choosing his Alma Mater-

Like many high schools this time of year, the hallways at LVHS are full of students “Repping,” -- that is, representing their university choices through their sweatshirts, water bottles, and other college-bound gear.

“Repping is cool,” says Atil M, one of 30 LVHS seniors who will soon make U of I at Urbana-Champaign his home, majoring in Industrial Engineering. “I like reaping.”

Thoughts on Bad Dog being Gone?

What are the thoughts on Bad Dog Tavern being shuttered?

  • They were always understaffed for lunch on that patio. Only one server for a LOT of tables on weekdays. Also, their kitchen vent clearly hadn't been cleaned for a while and there was a grease stain about 8 feet long along the exterior wall facing the patio. Just gross.

  • Botkin Kinch: the knife-blade

    I got the worst food poisoning of my life from their ahi tuna tacos. It was a very memorable experience.

Shoveling Your Walk. Let Me Help With That...

Hello, neighbors.

While you may not use the public walkway everyday to get to and from work, most of us do. Even though my calves and balancing abilities are getting stronger, my patience has worn thin. Also, it is very dangerous for a walk to turn to ice even for the more agile folk of Ravenswood.

While you may not use the public walkway everyday to get to and from work, most of us do. Even though my calves and balancing abilities are getting stronger, my patience has worn thin. Also, it is very dangerous for a walk to turn to ice even for the more agile folk of Ravenswood.

SO! I present an offer for the people of Ravenswood this:
Let me shovel your walkway for a small fee. Depending on the snow, I will come to your house however many times.

My perimeters will be Damen & Lawrence - Oakley & Lawrence, Oakley & Wilson - Damen and Wilson. Depending on how much you hate shoveling and have yet to do so this year, I will come to your house, too.

What do you say?

  • I know Maggie I almost called you today. But I think my son is going to Shovel when he gets home.

    I former Chicago mom I know moved to the suburbs purely for this reason-the schools were not good here and Private was expensive. She lived in a good neighborhood where people had high incomes yet were enrolling them in the Chicago Park District preschool.

    My daughter's father begs to differ-he says does she even need to go to preschool?

    Parent Magazine has an issue dedicated to all the private school options pre-k to 12 and it is a big business alright.

Stolen Honda Wheels

Another Honda in the neighborhood has had their wheels stolen; this time on Wolcott at Ainslie. It happened to me a couple years ago. It took the guys just a couple of minutes to get all 4 tires and get out of there. Wheel locks are a must, especially if you drive a Honda!

  • ChicagoKen Concerned citizen

    I posted a story as well. Man, you would think the Police would be looking out for this. We , fortunately , don't have to deal with violent crime like other areas. That being said, address what we do deal with over here. Property Crime!!!! We have to put the pressure on them. Might even be a good idea to make this an issue with our City council reps.

Monthly Parking

I am looking for a monthly parking spot starting in March or April. I would consider inside and outside spaces as close to Clark and Montrose as possible.

If you are or know anyone renting a spot, please let me know.

Thanks in advance

    My suggestion is to make up fliers and put them around the area that you want parking. That way you are hitting your target audience and saving a lot of time. Try to keep track of where you are putting the fliers so that when you find your wonderful spot, you can take down all those annoying fliers we all hate :) I would recommend making perforated tags on the bottom so people can take your number and don't need to write anything down. This method more or less worked for me with a dog walking business. People will pull your tabs…my building has 8 parking lots and 2 are rented out…including mine. Inside parking goes for - upper hundred, outside, lower hundreds. Good luck and having a spot saves a TON of headaches, especially after a long day at work or one of our snow storms. Good luck and you will be fine.

  • Hello,

    I have a parking space available for rent in an underground heated garage located at the Kinetic Lofts at 4814 N. Clark, near Lawrence & Clark, for $120/mo, minimum lease term is 6 months.
