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 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

Jewel Parking Lot used as Throughway

Can something be done about the Jewel parking lot on 55th and Mayfield being used as a through-way? I've seen cars frequently use the lot as a through-way from 55th to Archer and vice-versa, especially when there is a train in progress on 55th street. The cars speed through without paying attention to the signage in the lot which puts many older residents at risk. I also had a personal incident today while leaving the store where I guess I was walking too slow for the idiot so he leaned out his window to let me know it. After he took off it looked like he almost hit another car. Something has to change there.

  • @FellowResident That is not a given. An injured party could include jewel in their lawsuit but they are not automatically responsible.

  • don't Pete's Markets on Kedzie and Pulaski have something like an island and several speed bumps to prevent this? Jewel folks should follow suit if they don't want to be out of business soon

T & L Cleaners

Someone wrote in last week and gave a terrible review to this business. I've been going there for 15 years and always was satisified with the dry cleaning and tailoring. The lady who runs it has been nothing but nice and wonderful to her customers. Her work is excellent and the prices are reasonable. I would recommend this place and have to everyone I know.

  • I had a bad experience with Clean Clean on Archer. I now take my dry cleaning to CD One or to Breen's in La Grange.

  • T & L is a good place. It's a One Eye Willie approved business establishment. Nothing but positive experiences there. The tailor on Archer and Oak Park is bad news and smells bad in there like old lady candy.

  • I've been going to T&L cleaners for over 15 years too. The dry cleaning is excellent and so is the seamstress work if you need it. I don't see how there could be ANY complaints about this place.

Broken Car Windows

Just wanted to give the GF neighbors a heads up. Yesterday on my block of 51st and Moody, the driver'a side windows of 3-4 cars were deliberately broken with a BB gun. The incident happened around 11:30-12am. Concerning to say the least, please be vigilant.

  • Can someone please let me know how to find the precinct captains and the caps meeting places or times. This had to stop the crime is getting out of hand

  • Chicagodan South Side/North Side

    Sonysonysony, I highly recommend you follow Southwest Chicago Post. In addition to regularly posting CAPS meeting dates, they also report on GR crime in their "Crime News Update." You won't find this news anywhere else. http://www.swchicagopost.com/

  • I will definatley go to the meeting and read the material right now....thanks
