53rd and Auston

I heard on the news this morning that a man and a woman were shot on 53rd and Auston.
Has any one heard any thing about this. Thank you Carolyn

  • G-R Neighbor Garfield Ridge resident for over 25 years

    I heard it was murder/suicide, involving a husband and wife who were both in law enforcement. According to the report I heard, the husband shot his wife, then himself. Don't know any other details. Very tragic.

47th & Cicero Ave

Does anyone know if they plan on building businesses around Archer & Cicero to the Expressway ramp? It looks so ugly with these abandoned buildings everywhere

  • Rosie, I did read up on this before , I wonder if the plan is still "in the works" I just hope they do built something nice around there (no more public housing) its an eye sore for tourists that come and go from Midway.

  • Nope TIF money was spent in Shop and Save 3million to be exact and they will be tearing it down in a couple if years and there goes our tax money. Stay educated and research TIFs and you'll see the money is where?

My dog was poisoned.

The facts about my dog were true. You do not have to believe me and I never expected the controversy it has created.

I posted this so it would help other people and I thought if it had happened to someone listening maybe they would help me on what to do to protect further pets. I thought that was what this website was about, to help your neighbors.

I posted this so it would help other people and I thought if it had happened to someone listening maybe they would help me on what to do to protect further pets. I thought that was what this website was about, to help your neighbors.

I did not do a police report because in my sadness it did not occur to me. Thank you for the suggestion, I don't know if I will though. I am not sure if the police would be able to help as it is not illegal to feed other peoples pets, is it?

I was trying to protect my security with my dog gone by refraining from a more pinpointed location but that does not seem a concern with the people who post here. Archer and Narragansett seems general enough. I hope that satisfies those who need to know but crime happens everywhere and this info might give a false security to those who think otherwise

It has been less than a week since my dog died and the same with me being on this website.
I will remove myself from this website as hurtful words just seem to keep coming and I did not realize you could get crucified for trying to share so close to Easter.
Thank you to those that were kind. I hope you keep your pets safe as they are the innocent ones.

    Sorry, no apology from me. I DO understand not filing a police report, as that was probably the last thing on the OP's mind when confronted with the passing of her dog..very sad ..and I am very sorry her dog died. That being said..if she (he) had said Archer & Narragansett from the beginning, none of this would have happened. AND had she(he) said the area originally, someone here MAY have actually put 2 and 2 together and realized that they noticed something ...and may have possibly been able help police.

    Lill you do need to file a police report it is very important to do so, as the police cannot do anything if they do not know there is a problem or an issue occuring. You do have my deepest Sympathy's Our angles with fur are very dear to many of us and it hurts but one way to honor your pet and to help other pets and pet owners from going through what you are going through is to do what you need to. Please help others so it doesn't happen again.

    Having been involved with CAPS for many years and also the community in general, I have discovered people complain and or make comments about thinks I.E I call the police all the tome I made a report etc. But they do nothing they don't seem to realize this can and will be checked. If this did happen she needs to step up and make that report and tell us the area it is happing. If it never happened then she must need help to lie about a pet in the way something is seriously wrong with her

  • I agree
