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.

Decent Gyms in the Area?

Hi neighbors. My husband and I are looking for an affordable and clean gym to join in the Pilsen - South Loop - Chinatown - Bridgeport area (we live at Archer and Canal). I have not heard the best reviews for the place at Canal and Roosevelt, nor for the one west of us at Cermak and Rockwell. This past month, we signed up for a month's membership at the gym in the Chinatown park district building. We're not that impressed though and were wondering if there were other good options in the area. We'd appreciate any suggestions you might have!

  • Miki love the South Loop!

    We love Snap Fitness @ S. Michigan and Roosevelt -- learn more at the website http://www.snapfitness.com/gyms/chicago-il-60605/5595
    reasonable fees (free trial period, so definitely check it out to see if you like it), 24 hour access, which it sounds like you are looking for, owners are terrific people!

  • West loop realist Teacher political operative

    Avoid FFC. I joined a few years ago and it was a macho arrogant steroid poser place. Couldn't even get a place at the pool with all the staff letting their drunk friends in for free. Avoid this place.

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.

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