Reputed mobster allegedly tossed woman down stairs 3 times: affidavit

Investigators are focusing on a 77-year-old woman who died on Oct. 17, 1987, in the 2300 block of West Ohio, the affidavit said.

Panozzo’s home in the 500 block of North Claremont was one of seven properties investigators searched after the Hegewisch sting operation. Another property is a Near West Side business owned by an associate of Koroluk and the elder Panozzo, according to the affidavit.

Koroluk’s 53-year-old wife was arrested at their home in the 2100 block of West Race, where authorities said they found almost a quarter kilogram of cocaine and $12,000. Maria Koroluk is a $97,000-a-year director with the Cook County assessor’s office.

The business — near Hubbard and Damen — is where the crew allegedly divided up stolen narcotics and cash, the affidavit said.

Window Repair

Does anyone know of a good window repair company/guy? I recently got into a new place and the locks on my windows are all busted and need to be fixed, but all I've found are companies that want to replace the whole windows for thousands of dollars.
Thanks!

    They also sell replacement parts at Menard on Clyburn very simple I do them my self. Just take one of the locks off and bring it there. If you need the windows argon gas replaced if they are fogged up take it to pegus windows on grand it will take a day or 2 if you bring the early. You may have to cut a piece of plywood and a 2 by 4 to cover your window in the mean time.
    I have a hand man that can take most windows out for 150 to $200 to re seal and flash for leaksif not done properly.

Stolen Planter

Hi. This is somewhat small, but last night someone stole the large blue planter off our front steps (2000 block of Race Ave). And I'm wondering if anyone else in the area had their planter taken too. Also, I hope whoever did it wrenched their back (it was heavy). Thanks.

LOST - Bike Bag, Grey

Unsure what happened, but it seams the bag must have fallen of the rake en route up Milwaukee from West Loop (Randolph and Halsted) area to Palmer Square area (Armitage and Kedzie).

Lost late Monday night (7/14/14) before 11 PM.

I know it's unlikely that anyone found it, will see this or the craigslist post and contact to return ... but this is better than doing nothing.

Thank you.

Elston Avenue

Walsh Construction is trying to put a TRANSFER of TRASH location on 949 Elston. All of the neighbors received a notice of hearing. It's going to be on July 18, 2 pm, City Hall. 121 LaSalle, Room 200. They want to use it as a modified transfer station. From what I understand, previously they had a construction company there and they were loud at all hours of the night, waking the neighbors, etc. I also heard that the backyards had debris from the site and odors. I was not here at that time but I'm concerned about all of those factors and also chemicals, being close to the water. Please attend the meeting- we need your voice!

Almost Home (For People Who Can't Get Packages At Home)

http://almosthomeapp.com

I shared this about a week ago. A large number of my friends aren't able to get packages left by UPS or Fedex since we live on busy streets and don't have doormen. We decided to start building a service that would let nearby neighbors (who CAN receive packages) turn their homes into receiving centers. Basically neighbors helping neighbors for a small fee. Since we're in Chicago, we're going to launch here first and test out the market. If you're interested in getting involved please follow the link above.

Also would love any general feedback/questions in this thread.

  • AvaBianca, same with me. I used to work in a big office but now that I freelance I don't have a place to get packages. I'm driving over to the UPS service center once a week now to get my stuff from Amazon.

  • lauren east lakeview

    Oh well that makes much more sense. I agree that it's a good idea.
