Division Street Bridge gets Old Bailey Runaround

It was only this past July when we wrote of the quick demolition of the 1903 Division Street bridge over the North Branch Channel at the eastern edge of Goose Island.  Within a few short weeks, nary a trace of the structure remained.

Lost Dog - Evergreen n Milwaukee

Carlos is missing! ~10# male Chihuahua, fixed, about 5 years old. Thick little guy, white coat, looks like a super burrito from La Pasadita, with feet.

He was last seen near Evergreen and Milwaukee Ave ~2pm on Saturday August 30th. He's a total lover, but might come across as nervous or timid if you try and approach him.

He has a collar on. Please call the number on the collar or please call me at 6516005843 . Please anyone, call if you see him!

Attempted Robbery: Leavitt & Schiller

At aprox 2:10a this morning I had two men approach me around the intersection of leavitt and schiller. They were of olive and slightly darken complection with the darker individual being slightly taller, around 6' 1". The told me to empty my pockets and "not run". I grew up in Detroit so naturally I ran, they either didnt try to keep up with me or were extremely slow. I called the police and they rolled their eyes about filing a report and offered me a ride home with little thought for the cigarettes I was on my way to retreive. Just figured I would warn everyone else in the neighborhood.

  • Good thing you got out of that one. During the darkness of night (about 11pm until before daybreak is prime time) is when this normally happens.

  • NRS

    Glad you aren't hurt. I recently received a really, really LOUD whistle as a gift. It resembles a police whistle- only it's louder. I have been wearing it around my neck whenever I go out. I wonder what effect there would be if we all used a really loud whistle.

Street sweeping

Well, it finally happened. I got a street sweeping ticket yesterday. However, the sign wasn't there when I parked on Sunday....and the sweeping dates, PER THE CITY WEBSITE, are August 27th and 28th. Any tips to fight this?

    As my old friend Mike Brockway emphasizes, you should contest every single ticket you receive. Go to theexpiredmeter.com for his information on how to fight these tickets. There are two parts to the process, the first being contesting at the administrative level and, failing that, filing a civil appeal. You...

    As my old friend Mike Brockway emphasizes, you should contest every single ticket you receive. Go to theexpiredmeter.com for his information on how to fight these tickets. There are two parts to the process, the first being contesting at the administrative level and, failing that, filing a civil appeal. You have an excellent chance of succeeding if you follow through.

    Sadly, these faulty information systems have been in place for too many decades and it's hurting good people. I'm supporting Anne Shaw running for alderman in the First Ward and if she wins you can be sure I will push her on this kind of issue. Many volunteer opportunities in this campaign, contact me if you're interested.

    I contested a street sweeping ticket (I specifically parked there because there were not signs) and they must have put the signs up the morning of the sweeping. I pled my case and lost. It was a total waste of time, save your energy IMO.

looking for kitties

I want to adopt two little kittens for my son and I, does anyone know anyone who needs to give some away?

  • This is usually a big red flag: someone looking for free dogs or cats. People think people who look for "free" dogs and cats are going to use them for dog fighting or sell them across state lines for vivisection research. They mostly pose as women with kids. FYI.

  • ariel elizabeth new to chicago

    Well yes and thank you. However, I am a woman, I do have a child, I am a vegan, and an activist. I say free only because as a bartender I like to budget my own vet care, and I can do that being a former vet tech. That being...

    Well yes and thank you. However, I am a woman, I do have a child, I am a vegan, and an activist. I say free only because as a bartender I like to budget my own vet care, and I can do that being a former vet tech. That being said enough people, including shelters gave us so many leads to make a good decision for our home we wound up adopting two males cats who have been roomies for five years or so and were at risk of being separated, not my first choice but happy to have them here and give them an opportunity to chill out and not worry for the rest of their days. But thank you so much for addressing an obvious problem that is well known to all actual animal rights activists, including myself. Take care now and have nice night.

Flat Tire Scam

North Ave and Wood St

30s male, short buzzed hair, tapped on our car window and claimed his sister in law had a flat tire and that he was $14 dollars short. He convincingly says he'll take your business card/email and pay you back double but that his nephew is in the car and that he needs to get back to him. He appears to be flustered and in a (sweaty) panic.

We saw him hit up a business and then run down the street to a vehicle with 4 adults inside. They drive a red Pontiac van (last 4 digits of the license plate is 8694). Beware, fellow neighbors!

  • This EXACT same thing happened to me at Damen and Wabansia... It was months ago or could have been a year ago. I didn't give him any money either, but he should quit scamming street corners and move to LA to get into movies... He's very convincing.
