Hawk Sighting

Today I saw a hawk on my neighbor's fence that stood about a foot and a half high with a 3 foot wing span. Fair warning to those who have small dogs and cats outdoors. I have seen these hawks carry off dogs and cats. It is very unusual to see a hawk in the city so beware.

  • We've seen the red tailed hawk around our house in Norwood Park a few times this past year.

  • The hawks have been around the Foster/Harlem area for a few years now! I saw one just the other day sitting on top of the light pole at Foster and Merrimac. They keep the vermin down but you do need to check when letting your dogs out. One of the first times I saw one it was eating a rabbit in a neighbor's tree!

Cable Service Provider

Hi all! I currently utilize Comcast as a cable/internet provider. I cannot find additnal providers. I had At and was totally disgusted with their lack of service and resolutions for any difficulty. There must be more competition other than satellite, which I do not care for. Please help! Thanks in advance!

  • Unfortunately neither RCN or WOW are currently available in Norwood Park ... we've been very pleased with AT&T Uverse since switching (after a miserable first and last month with Comcast). I had heard bad things about AT&T when we were purchasing the house but it's really been great

  • Thanks for the CV confidence vote for uverse. It is terrible that our choices are limited to At & t or Comcast. Pathetic. Not sure why RCN and WOW are in other parts of the city, but not ours. As usual, the NW side is shafted from services.

Animated Musical Christmas Lights Display!

Every year, I run an animated Christmas lights display at my house at 6910 W. Farragut Ave. This year features 10 songs from Frozen, Rent, Glee, Home Alone, The Polar Express, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and more!

You can either walk by the display and watch as over 5,500 lights dance to the music, or you can drive up in your car and tune your radio to 107.1 to hear the music. The lights run every night until New Years from 6-9pm.

You can see videos from past years here:

All the info is here:

Bring the kids on by and experience the magic of the "dancing Christmas lights"!
