new business

Will definitely make sure Munoz is not re-elected this year, giving the OK to build another speedy cash on 47th cicero while the surrounded areas were against it, and he went ahead and gave the Ok himself. That kind of business brings negativity to the area and the wrong crowd. I thought the goal was to improve Cicero Ave, not make it worse.

  • Rosie Just moved to the South Side from the North Side

    What?! Another dump? I moved down here 5 years ago with my husband but it's time to move out. A pawn shop and now a quick loan place.

  • So it seems, I contacted the Archer Height Civil Assoc. and thats the info that was given, there has to be a way to stop that from opening?!
    Maybe a petition?
    There is also a Payday Loan not too far from there. thats insane, I really hope its not true

Recognized this cat?

This cat is looking for it's home and is lost wandering outside. It would like to find its way home, or is looking for a foster home before winter arrives.

Not sure of the gender. Very passionate and affectionate, loves to be pet.

    Kisses, which is the name of this cat, was taken off the streets into a temporary Foster Home. That's when it was discovered he was chipped. The information on the chip was outdated, due to the fact that owner handed him off to another individual 4 years ago.

    When the second owner came forward to claim Kisses, the cat decided to bolt. Therefore, he is presently on the streets. He took off running by 51st and Massasoit. He was original found on 57th and Karlov.

    Kisses is extremely hungry for wet cat can food. Something missing from his diet from the second owner. The only way to lure him, if found, is with wet can food.

    I hope he is located and picked up. He is chipped, but to the wrong owner.

  • Hi Citizen,

    Thanks for the explanation. If wet food works for luring the cat, and the area where he was last seen is known, has anyone considered setting a trap? Shelters loan humane traps to catch cats. The temperature is going to drop to near freezing by the weekend.

FEMA

I know many residents applied for Fema. Some of my customers which did not flood, received a copy of a letter sent to the alderman, stating they will not be able to service the people. But yesterday a customer on 58th Kilbourn, her neighbor received a letter from Fema, stating they will assist them. Did anyone else hear anything? Thank you

  • abc_773 ABC is easy as 773

    No. I received the letter as well. Not too many people called 311 :-(

    I called 311 5x! But I don't have many proactive neighbors, so I doubt they called.

They jumped out on the 5600 block of Newcastle on Saturday morning with guns drawn and raided the house 4 down from 57th on the East side. I haven't seen any update on what was going on but it was an interesting way to start the day. Anyone know?

    Trying to find out what happened. Police took box's from the house when they left. Young adults have been seen coming and going from the house all hours of the day and night. Have seen drug sales in front of the house on numerous occasions.They throw their trash all over front lawns and street on the block. Have seen the young adults that live there chased by other young adults with pipes in the past.Police stopped the adults with the pipes at 56st and Newcastle.Were observed by neighbors trying to break into neighbors garage.

  • They were at it again Sunday night 10/12/14. Heard female screaming for help around 10PM. Went outside and observed an ambulance and police at the same house. The young adults came running out of the house and ran down to the alley at 57th between Oak Park and Newcastle the police and ambulance followed.Could not see what happened by the alley ,but heard on the police scanner that they were going to McNeal hospital with the ambulance.

Stray grey cat seen on west side of 5100 block of Neenah

I saw a very friendly stray grey cat without a collar on the west side of the 5100 block of Neenah. It walked up to me, meowed and let me pet it. I picked it up and planned to drive it to the Animal Welfare League, but it panicked, got free from me and ran away. It is obviously a pet cat. I tried to feel for a microchip, but couldn't find one. If this is your cat, set out food and water so it stays close.

Winter will be here soon, neighbors, please keep your cats indoors and be aware of them when you open doors.

  • Sally S. neighbor

    Was it chubby? There is one that lives 5100 Mulligan and it's an outdoor/indoor cat
