All family, friend and neighbors within 2000 to 2200 block of Erie. A @#$%^ casually jumped over the next door neighbor fence on Fri, 10/17 @1p. Got into our garage, open the garage, stoled my husbands expensive bike, closed the garage door and than walked to the gate to pick up his apple, ate it and rode into the sunset all caught on camera. WTF!!! Please be careful as the tape clearly shows he was looking around. In the 40 years living in this neighborhood, I am bitter to know that our neighborhood is now more of a reason for @#$% to steal. Not hating on the new residents but this is BS. Of all days not to have the dogs out...I beat myself up.

Who is my alderman?

I have tried to use this website to figure out my alderman and what district I fall into, but when I try to put my address in, it doesn't take it. And I can not see my street on the map. So hoping one of you may know. I used to think it was Burnett, but someone told me that he wasn't my alderman. THanks. This was the website I was using: http://www.cityofchicago.org/city/en/depts/other/provdrs/clerk/svcs/find_your_ward_andalderman.html

My address is 111 S Morgan St.

Thanks.

'Breakfast Queen' Returns to Her West Loop Digs For Lou Malnati's Pizza

The torch-passing tradition at 1235 W. Randolph St. actually goes back further. The day Pinkney opened her breakfast and brunch spot in 2001, John Panagakos was there. His family had run the restaurant before her at that address for 44 years.

Missing Cat

My cat went missing on Friday night from the 1400 block of West Huron. He is a big brown Tabby with white paws. He answers to the name of Bob.

He normally just wandered the alley between Huron and Superior. Let me know if anyone has seen him!

Thanks!

Late Night Fire on W. Chestnut?

I saw a house on fire and smoking majorly last night around 12am-1am. Tons of firetrucks, noise and commotion.

The firefighters used saws to open the roof. I can't find it anywhere on the news.

Anyone know what happened?

I hope everyone is ok.

Awful noise from ADM on Ogden?

Ive lived in the West Town neighborhood for 5 years now and just moved a few blocks from my apartment on Grand Ave.

I noticed at my new place a awful, squealing noise coming from outside that happens every morning from about 6am to around noon. It lasts for about a minute, stops for a bit then goes back again.

It's amazingly annoying and have to believe others hear it and can't stand it either.

Does anyone know what I'm taking about? Anybody know of any past complaints?

  • Isn't there a Planned Manufacturing District (PMD) just west of there? Unfortunately, I think you moved next to various factories/plants that will probably make those kinds of noises. That said, I'd still bring it up to your alderman.

Nanny Share

Looking for a family who can share a babysitter for days a week with us. Our son is in 1/2 day preschool at FXW and needs a friend to hang with while we work. Our schedule is flexible and ever changing.

  • Agreed...Tbone is off topic and missed the point.

  • Hi Shannon! Email me we also live on grand and have a full time nanny for our 2.5 year old who has been with us since our daughter was 3 months. Let me know if you want to talk. Jodi.curl@gmail.com

found calico kitten

I was out this evening near our home on Warren Blvd by Oakley and found a calico kitten. We took her to the 24. Hour animal hospital. Unfortunately, she is not microchipped. They thought she was around 4 months old and she was wearing a flea collar. She is for sure somebody's pet. Super friendly, cuddley and well maintained. The vet does not take in strays so for now she is home with us. In the morning we will be taking her to anti cruelty society down on LaSalle and grand ave. Please contact me if you know who she belongs to.

  • Em Ro evening is the whole day

    That's great that you're taking such good care of her. I'm sure if she is that social, she'll get adopted out.

  • Julie Pambianco 8 year Near West (United Center) Resident

    She is beautiful. I hope her cat guardian is on EB and sees this. Kudos to you for taking care of her.
