Please don't tag Abe Lincoln

Hopefully those who actually tagged the Abe Lincoln statue in south Lincoln Park will read this and see that your tags on awesome works of art don't make you look good. I'm actually a huge fan of graffiti and that was really disappointing to see you guys blowing up Honest Abe's peaceful place of contemplation. The city cleaned it all off super quickly. Tag something else but leave the city's works of art alone.

  • how 'bout don't tag or graffiti anything else either. buy a canvas and create your own art.

anyone have free moving boxes?

Does anyone in the Lincoln Park or near areas have extra boxes laying around that I could have for free? I can pick them up!

  • Call Trader Joes. They get big boxes in the morning and late evening.

  • Liquor stores also have plenty to give away, though they're on the smaller side. Scouring the alleys are the best way to find large moving boxes and people pack them up quite well.

Man pees in Jonquil Park

My husband was at Jonquil Park today around 3pm with our 10 month old son. A black male in his mid 40's entered the gated area and in front of my husband and son peed. He was wearing black pants, a black jacket, a bright orange hat and carrying two backpacks one of them camouflage. My husband just scooped up our son and got him out of there. The guy was gone then and he did not call the police. I told him he should have. Makes me sick. My son loves to crawl around the park :(

    Take a video of the guy using your phone or tablet. Email the vid to your local police station and demand action. If enough people did that sort of thing it just might help.

  • I can appreciate your suggestion, Bill Gorden.

    I would, however, propose that this is a suggestion a little less frightening to a man than a woman.
