Timelife Warner books - in need of a good home

I have a box full of Timelife Warner books from the early 1970s that need a good home. There are about 25 or 30 of these books....the subjects of these books are mostly national parks with lots of pictures and text about the parks...the Cascades(Washington), Atlantic Beaches...and many more...these are free to a good home...email me or post here if you are interested...

  • I would like to see them for a few months and then give to Norwood Home or donate to Beaubien School, they appreciated my National Geographics very much.

  • Frank Lifer

    I teach at Hammond School located at 21st and California. These would be a great addition to my classroom.

Phone scam - don't be a victim

The Internal Revenue Service issued a consumer alert today providing taxpayers with additional tips to protect themselves from telephone scam artists calling and pretending to be with the IRS.

The Internal Revenue Service issued a consumer alert today providing taxpayers with additional tips to protect themselves from telephone scam artists calling and pretending to be with the IRS.
These callers may demand money or may say you have a refund due and try to trick you into sharing private information. These con artists can sound convincing when they call. They may know a lot about you, and they usually alter the caller ID to make it look like the IRS is calling. They use fake names and bogus IRS identification badge numbers. If you don't answer, they often leave an "urgent" callback request.

The IRS reminds people that they can know pretty easily when a supposed IRS caller is a fake. Here are five things the scammers often do but the IRS will not do. Any one of these five things is a tell-tale sign of a scam. The IRS will never:

1. Call you about taxes you owe without first mailing you an official notice.
2. Demand that you pay taxes without giving you the opportunity to question or appeal the amount they say you owe.
3. Require you to use a specific payment method for your taxes, such as a prepaid debit card.
4. Ask for credit or debit card numbers over the phone.
5. Threaten to bring in local police or other law-enforcement groups to have you arrested for not paying.

If you get a phone call from someone claiming to be from the IRS and asking for money, here's what you should do:
If you know you owe taxes or think you might owe, call the IRS at 1.800.829.1040. The IRS workers can help you with a payment issue.
If you know you don't owe taxes or have no reason to believe that you do, report the incident to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) at 1.800.366.4484 or at www.tigta.gov.
If you've been targeted by this scam, also contact the Federal Trade Commission and use their "FTC Complaint Assistant" at FTC.gov. Please add "IRS Telephone Scam" to the comments of your complaint.

Mayor Emanuel tours Taft HS

Taft has undergone $18.2 million in improvements. Alderman Mary O'Connor, State Senator John Mulroe and Principal Mark Grishaber accompanied the mayor on the Aug. 26 tour. Taft senior Gladys Recalde introduced the mayor at a news conference at the school.

  • Big Oaks Big Oaks resident since 1979

    It's nice to see the mayor up here on the far northwest side. If he even dreams of a second term he needs to be seen and heard on the south side AND the north side. There are issues all over the city. It's also great that Taft H.S. is getting it's due. That building has been put on the back burner for decades.

  • Good to see Taft getting some well needed repairs. The new windows look great.

  • robin in WRP Tired and Cranky

    I knew Mr. Grishaber at Whitney (as a parent while he was assistant principal, not while he was a student); he is fantastic, and Taft is lucky to have him.

Date Night

So rather than doing the same old "dinner and a movie" routine, I want to think outside the box for our future date nights. I figured our Everyblock community would be an awesome idea generator. So neighbors what good options for live music, comedy shows, other entertainment do we have here on the NW side? I am thinking we'll check out a performance at the Gift Theater and visit the new Sip and Paint. What else?

  • Susan Long-time Jeff Park resident

    One of the best dates my husband and I had (if you can get away overnight) was at the Fireside dinner theater in Ft. Atkinson, WI. It is about 2-1/2 hours away. They have a gourmet dinner, a little shopping, and then some of the best theater I've seen outside of downtown Chicago. Then you stay overnight (Johnson Creek is a good place). The hotel right by the property was NOT recommended the last time I went. I really like some of the suggestions above, too--they show great imagination!

  • There's always a night out bowling as well. If you feel neither of you is very good, that just adds to the fun, You're sure to have lots of laughs.

Shop & Save

Anybody know when it will finally open? Can't find an update anywhere.

  • Last I had heard was early August...and that didn't happen...are they decorating the inside like the Taj Mahal or what???!!!
    It's getting really annoying and remains seriously inconvenient to not have a nearby grocery store. Happy Foods on NW Hwy is the next closest for me but their breadth of selection is sometimes lacking. And Jewel at Oakton /Milwaukee never seems to be properly staffed.
    Shop and Save...your public awaits you!!!

  • Last week the parking lot was filled with semi-trucks. Not sure if that means they are stocking shelves now or just getting fixtures in place.

Talk to me about compost bins

How much maintenance does composting require? Do animals get into it?

I hesitate because my small kids keep me with time for little else. We also have a lot of raccoons, rats, mice in the area an am concerned about attracting them (even with a covered bin).

  • My bin has a tight fitting lid, and a plastic grid on the bottom. Rats cannot get in. I got it when the Dept of Environment was subsidizing them and delivering them on a special day at Garfield Park. There is a door at the bottom where you can remove finished compost. You do not put meat or bones or dairy in there.

  • Sss

    I started a bokashi system, but still am looking for something to put it in outside to finish the decomp process. Do you happen to know the brand of your bin?

  • No, I've had it for years ... got it from the city. You can use a plastic garbage bin with a tight fitting lid, if you drill holes in the bottom. If you look at the city's website, there may still be a subsidy/reimbursement for purchase of a compost bin.

    We checked the scales last time & the one vendor had a marked weight handy for anyone to confirm readings. They did note they'd found a problem with there scale a month ago, as it had gotten banged around in transit. They've since fixed it and are making every effort to alleviate concerns.
