Coyote On Metra Tracks

Just a heads up to everyone out there. I heard a howling noise right now, and even before I looked, I told my husband, "I bet that was a coyote." Sure enough, I looked out our door, and there was a coyote on the Metra tracks. This was near 54th and Cornell. So I guess they're venturing further south??? Is there anyone that I'm supposed to call and report this to, or is it just a case of letting them wander around? Worried for the little doggies around here.

  • There have been coyote sightings in Washington Park, Jackson Park and even in Harold Washington Park the last few years.
    They normally roam during the hours of darkness and avoid humans. If you see one wave your arms and they will move on.

  • I used to let my cat outdoors until he came home one morning with a his tail frayed and infected. His tail was so damaged that it had to be amputated. The vet said that it appeared he was attacked by another animal such as a cat,raccoon,or opossum. Please keep you cat indoors! My cat still whines by the back door,wanting to go outside,even though he has been neutered.

51st and Cornell?

Anyone know why the flood of police cars on Cornell between 51st and 53rd?

  • If you read the article, this is an accidental shooting, not a murder.

  • The initial Trib article didn't make that clear, but yes, that seems to be the case.

CN100 Game of the Week preview: IHSA Football 7A Semifinal - Mount Carmel vs. Providence Catholic

CHICAGO – When Mt. Carmel and Providence met in Week 3 on CN100, it felt like both teams were going in different directions.

Providence (11-1) appeared destined for a deep playoff run, piling up a 33-14 win on Mount Carmel to set the tone in the Chicago Catholic Blue. The Caravan (8-4) proceeded to lose two of their next three after the Providence game, putting them at 2-4 and in danger of not making the postseason.

CHICAGO – When Mt. Carmel and Providence met in Week 3 on CN100, it felt like both teams were going in different directions.

Providence (11-1) appeared destined for a deep playoff run, piling up a 33-14 win on Mount Carmel to set the tone in the Chicago Catholic Blue. The Caravan (8-4) proceeded to lose two of their next three after the Providence game, putting them at 2-4 and in danger of not making the postseason.

Saturday at noon at Gately Stadium on Chicago’s South Side, the two old rivals meet in the Class 7A state semifinals. The game will be broadcast by CN100 at Noon and 4 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 23, and at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 25. You can also find it throughout Chicagoland with Xfinity On Demand.

The intrigue on the Providence side comes in the form of the health of star receiver Miles Boykin. The 6-foot-4, 225-pound Notre Dame recruit is senior QB Justin Hunniford’s top target, but he’s only played in one of the last three games due to finger surgery. He has 55 catches for 886 yards and 18 TDs this season.

Hunniford has been sparkling, going 216-for-318 for 2,964 yards, 39 TDs and only three interceptions. With Boykin limited, junior Mike Markasovic (36 catches, 533 yards, 2 TD) and senior TE Nate Vejvoda (37 catches, 562 yards, 8 TD), an Iowa recruit, figure to see expanded roles.

Mt. Carmel has been in playoff mode for seven weeks now. The Caravan edged Loyola just to get into the field, before defeating to defending Class 6A state champion Batavia on the road in the first round. Mount Carmel then traveled 10 hours round trip to Belleville West for a win and beat traditional power Lincoln-Way East 20-7 last week.

Why Are There No Security Cameras In The South Side Lakefront Underpasses

How do we get the city to put security cameras in and at the entrances to the underpasses south of 31st Street? All those lights are nice, but security cameras might deter some crime.

  • Early last summer, at the community meeting after the murder in the Iowa Building, Alderman Hairston indicated that there was cameras in the underpasses at 57th Street.
    It appears she had her facts wrong,
    Cameras should be installed in all of the underpasses on south Lake Shore Drive.

Keeping a Close Eye on CPD's Glenn Evans

I'm not going to bore anyone with the details but I have (as well as many others in the 3rd District) witnessed first hand the abuses of power Commander Evans has delivered over his brief reign in Woodlawn.

I'm not going to bore anyone with the details but I have (as well as many others in the 3rd District) witnessed first hand the abuses of power Commander Evans has delivered over his brief reign in Woodlawn. Now with a new commander at the helm, I'm relieved but only in part. With all the lawsuits and complaints against him, i'm afraid the CPD is going back to their old playbook, tossing him from district to district like a hot potato. If anyone knows his current tour-of-duty please let me know. I want to insure that his past follows him and catches up with him sooner then later.. As of yet, to the best of my research, he has been named a defendant in six different lawsuits over the course of his career.

    Latest news report starring Evans: 'Police Brutality Allegation Payouts'

    http://abcnews.go.com/WNT/video/police-brutality-allegation-payouts-26928370

    Transcript:

    And a story about police payouts. Jim Avila reporting, and it's your money.

    Reporter: This Chicago police officer was caught brutally beating a female bartender, the city paid her $850,000. Another shot this man in the back, he was on the ground at the time, and later found to be unarmed. That payout, $4 million.

    In Philadelphia, more than $40 million paid out in the last five years. New York City, $420 million. And Chicago, $450 million over the past decade.

    He took the gun, put it to my throat. Reporter: Now this police commander, Glenn Evans, faces criminal charges for allegedly sticking a gun down the throat of this man. There have been more than 40 misconduct complaints against this aggressive, highly decorated officer.

    None of the previous claims were proven. Today he's on desk duty awaiting trial, but so far he has cost taxpayers $300,000 in settlements. Many, like Evans, still on the job.

    We went to Chicago to ask the police superintendent why. Can we ask you a couple of questions? No.

    Reporter: Really, we can't ask you any questions about the police? Are you kidding me? Reporter: No, I'm not kidding you.

  • To CC of C. My issue is that the CPD does not investigate or bring charges against Officer Evans. Therefore there are no lawsuits to be made, so of course he doesn't have to go to court and answer questions. There seems to be a pattern here that needs to be addressed.
