Dog Sitter needed Friday April 3rd - Saturday the 11th

Dog Sitter needed Friday April 3rd - Saturday the 11th
I'm looking for someone to look after my two dogs for 8 days starting this Friday. It could be someone to stay here overnight, or to come by at least 3 times a day & spend some time with them.

4 year old 70 pound German Shepherd (cautious at first, but very sweet)
7 month old 35 pound Farm Mutt (super friendly cuddly)

We have cable tv & internet.... fenced in yard... easy street parking... food... wifi....

4500 block of North Kostner
** references required

  • I found someone - Victor. The German Shepherd gave him the business at first but then just wanted to play. She'll be happy to see him again. I will give you feedback after we've returned.

  • If you ever need someone in the future.. I am interested.. I have been a dog walker/ petsitter for over 14 years for the same company, and a plus I only live around the block from your home.
    Thank you.

Sirens and someone screaming at sunnyside and merrimac/mobile

Tonight we heard a firetruck and ambulance fly down our street. When we went out to see what was going on, we heard a blood curdling scream. We didnt hear any information on the police radio. Does anyone else know anything about this?

  • Palmer Elementary School reviewed by a teacher

    I highly suggest that parents check out the rating the school received from CPS. The latest report card rated Palmer a Level One school using the most recent NWEA test scores, most recent attendance, and most recent surveys. You can not rate a school by test scores that are over 2 years old and pass/fail scores changed from the previous years. A new administration has been in place since those ISAT scores were released. New programs are in place with a better outlook to the future.

Block party suggestions?

Hi there!

We're planning our 51st annual block party this year, and I was hoping for suggestions. The neighbors who normally do the planning have stepped down, and this will be my first year planning, so I'd like to make a good impression :)

For those of you who are familiar with the process, I have a few questions:

What bouncy house rental company do you use? How much do you pay?
What DJ do you use? What's included? How much do you pay?

Does anyone have any suggestions on fun things we can do? It seems like every year people tend to stick to themselves and their own yards. I'd like to encourage more involvement. Any ideas?

Thanks!

  • I think that the 2014 applications have closed, and they haven't updated the site for 2015 yet. It looks as through they release the new applications in April each year, so you can check back then or confirm with the alderman.

    Thanks Mrs. L! I found the wording on the website to be a little confusing. I'll call and ask about it today.

Missing dog

My 13 pound Boston Terrier is missing! Female, black and white, named Delilah. She is not wearing a collar. I ran into a family who saw a young gentleman pick her up at Kenton & Leland around 6pm today. If anyone has any info, please call me Kathy 773-576-1921.

  • So sorry she got away Kathy. I saw that you posted on LDI. You may want to consider posting on nextdoor and craigslist for more coverage.

    Prayers she finds her way back to you soon.

  • Delilah is home with me! A very nice neighbor took her in for the night until he say my posters that I had plastered all over the neighborhood this morning. I can relax now.

New to Mayfair... your thoughts?

Just thinking of moving to the 4600 block of N Keystone. Right near the police station. Anyone have any opinions on the neighborhood and area? My wife and I are wondering if it's a safe place for a walk and how the nights are in this particular area.

  • Trg

    We just moved here from Ukrainian Village. We are still exploring so IM sorry I don't have much to say. But I do feel safe. :)

  • Eck

    We live in that area and have always felt safe. We've been here a handful of years and as far as we can tell the neighborhood keeps getting a little better every year. Good luck with your move!

  • Have owned just across Pulaski for two years now. Feel mostly safe, but do keep an eye out and stick to major roads when dark and possible. The more we are out at night doing productive and positive things the less there are crimes on our streets. My street is pretty active and we all look out for each other.
