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.

    Sorry you had to learn the hard way to always lock a bike, even inside. Some years ago, a thief broke out one of the wooden panels in my old overhead door, and got into the garage. No rocket scientist, him, so instead of opening the door and going to town on the contents of my garage - which included several expensive bikes - he instead stole only the long, narrow things he could pass out through the same opening he broke in through (a weed-whacker, a leaf blower, etc.). But I got the message and within a few days I had rigged a steel bar inside and locked our bikes to it! I'd also suggest steel bars over the windows, on the inside if you prefer the aesthetics.

  • Thanks Bob H! Big lesson learned. While the lesson for the day is "don't leave w/o locking everything" especially to the 11year old, yesterday, shopping cart "MO" [very video camera] decided to start lifting garage doors up and apparently ours rised up a little, could not get in so he managed to steal the guard liner. OMG! So new garage next week! Have a great weekend Bob H.

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!
