FOUND: Young female cat

Found:
Young, small female cat who showed up Tuesday, July 15th PM. Very friendly, wants to be around people and keeps trying to sneak in the door after us, so we think she's someone's cat. Flips over on her back as soon as she is approached, wants to be pet and scratched A LOT. Lots of meowing.

Please help us find her home. Photos posted below. Text or call 312-752-0397

  • Jeanne K. 5 year neighbor

    Thanks for posting! Wishing you lots of luck as you look after this sweet kitty. :)

  • Sorry if I marked anyone "unneighborly" or muted them, I was trying to hit "thanks" and am just getting the hang of my new phone. The kitty looks like a sweetie, hope someone claims her.

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.

The City of Chicago is pleased to inform you that the application period for the entry-level Firefighter/EMT exam started July 16, 2014 and will run through September 16. This is the period of time when applicants can sign up for the exam, which will be administered on December 13 and 14, 2014. In 2006, the age to sit for the exam was 19 and the age to enter the academy was 20. We have lowered the age to sit for the exam and enter the academy to 18. It is our hope that younger individuals who get on the eligibility list will be motivated to attend college and stay out of trouble and will find a sense of opportunity about their futures.

Attached is the job announcement, as well as the FAQ’s, which provides all of the key information about the application process and the exam. In case you’d like to cut-and-paste the link to the application website, here it is: www.cityofchicago.org/FireApplication. The website also contains links to additional information.

During the posting period, applicants can call (312) 744-4976 or email fire-application@cityofchicago.org with any questions or concerns, and they can also seek assistance in Room 100 in City Hall.

We have also modified the way candidates can apply for Veterans Preference. Applicants may apply for Veterans Preference at any time, even after the posting has closed. There is no longer a cutoff date for the submission of documents showing eligibility for Veterans Preference. However, the later the preference is applied for, the later it will be applied. Detailed instructions on how to apply for the Veterans Preference are included in the attached FAQs.
