What happened to the Bridgeport Vet?

I have been calling the bridgeport vet (Wayne, now that he is alone since Larry passed away) for over a week and there is a message that says the clinic is temporarily closed. Does anyone know why? And also does anyone know if Wayne is going to open again soon? I haven't been there in awhile since my dog and then one of my cats passed on. So I am out of the loop

  • Thank you Erik H. Could not care less for those two shysters. Their incompetence in '06 led to my dog dying prematurely. They should have stop P practicing years before.

  • Mar

    I have had a completely different experience than you foofops. Those 2 Doctors have treated all of my animals, cats and dogs, and have always been professional and compassionate. Sorry you had a bad experience but i totally disagree with you. And I hope Dr. Wayne gets well soon.

Kiddie park?

Does anyone know what's in store for the park at 31st & Lowe? It's been fenced off & today is being dug up. Haven't seen anything regarding it here or elsewhere.

  • rene One of Morty's people

    The parks at McGuane, Armor and Donovan were part of the Chicago Plays! initiative, "which aims to replace 50 playgrounds a year over the next five years." Does anyone know if this is part of that initiative?

  • Pravin xxxx

    I don't know but sure going to walk this evening to find out. I had mentioned about this park needed major works. It was good when I use to take my Kids in 70's & now I take my Grandkids but afraid that they will get hurt from studs coming out on walkway board. Hope they fix it nice & add some good ride.

Strays near Donovan Park

Around 5:15 today spotted two strays running together near the park. One is a German Shepard and the other was a smaller fawn colored dog. They appeared to be in good shape but were too far away for me to see if they were wearing tags.

Ten Thousand Ripples Art & Peace Workshop

The Chicago Park District and Changing Worlds will present Symbols of Culture, Symbols of Peace, an Art and Peace Workshop, Saturday, October 25th, 10:00 a.m.-12:00 noon, at McGuane Park, 2901 S. Poplar. Join neighbors and friends for a morning of art and peace making activities. Learn about the Ten Thousand Ripples Buddha sculptures in Palmisano Park and work with award-winning artist, Indira Johnson, to create your own symbol of peace. This event is free and open to residents of all ages. The Ten Thousand Ripples exhibit was installed at Palmisano Park in August where it will remain until next summer.

  • rene One of Morty's people

    It just occurred to me... those sculptures will either stop the sledding this winter or make it more dangerous. This is very interesting. I am conflicted about the sledding at Palmisano. It looks so dangerous, what with the bottom of the hill leading to a wall. On the other hand, as a kid I loved sledding so much, and would hate to deprive any child of that experience.

  • R.

    I've sled down it many times and let me say that the fun far outweighs the danger. I haven't seen anyone get injured in the times I've been there, though the sledder has to mind any pedestrians passing by. Sad news if the sculptures interfere this winter, but I suspect folks will just spend more time sledding down the other side.

  • rene One of Morty's people

    I grew up in west Michigan where we had dunes and some of the dunes even had rope lifts. So my idea of sledding is possibly a little safer in some ways, and much more dangerous in others!

Falcon

Saw a falcon catch a sparrow on our deck today. Hadn't seen one so close before.

  • robin in WRP misanthrope

    We have nesting cardinals and mourning doves in our yard. We occasionally see red-tailed hawks. Mr. Woodpecker (red comb, and all) shows up for a few weeks every spring.

  • jim m bridgeport resident 14 years

    We have a thistle feeder. Fewer goldfinches have showed up this year than last. Mourning doves eat what falls to the ground. Haven't seen the falcons (I think what we saw were actually kestrels) in the tree across the alley since spring.

Maureen Sullivan's Palmisano Park Council Wins Award

Congratulations to Maureen, Rob and Dan on winning the annual "Volunteers in the Parks" award from Friends of the Parks.

http://www.dnainfo.com/chicago/20141013/bridgeport/palmisano-park-advisory-council-wins-city-award

I don't serve on the park advisory council but have had the privilege of volunteering for the Bridgeport Clean and Green and Bridgeport Air and Water Show over the last few years. These events have given me the opportunity to work closely with Maureen Sullivan and learn from her the true meaning of community spirit. Her resourcefulness and ability to bring businesses, community groups and individuals together for a common purpose is exactly why I want her to be our next alderman.

Rob and Dan are both pretty great, too :) Congratulations to all!

  • Thanks Rene!
    The PAC has great ideas for the park. And, while I know that Rob & I are proud to be recognized by Friends of The Park, Maureen is the real driving force of the council. She has put in a lot of her very-limited free time to make events at Palmisano great. She doesn't give up. Having worked with her on numerous projects over the last few years I think Maureen will make a good Alderman.

Open House Chicago

The Chicago Architecture Foundation is sponsoring this free event which features 150 buildings that will be open to the public Saturday & Sunday. Several of them are right here in Bridgeport or our adjacent neighborhoods. Some buildings aren't usually open to the public. Seems like a great chance to get out and explore!

Check their website for full information: http://www.openhousechicago.org/

    I highly recommend visiting Decorators Supply Corp at 36th & Morgan. I went during last year's OHC and thought it was such a cool work space, not to mention fascinating company history.

    Please allow me to thank all the comments I do appreciate them so first off yes it would seem vary dangerous to meet someone u don't know that's why I left my E-mail so that if I did get any instest in my services then we would meet in A public place like A gym or the park. And how I wish that I could go to school to get certified but unfortunately I cant afford to go right now I'm in over my head in dept. I was given advice by A friend who is A certified trainer about how he started to lean how to start as A trainer that he would go around the gyms that he would attend and just ask around for clants and it work for him but unfortunately for me I'm A little more shy then him to do that so I tried to see if this Would work and since I am uncerfied that's why I would be much cheap then those high priced cerfied trainers as an alternative for those who can't afford one!
