New development at Shakespeare and Campbell?

Saw a posting on 2 houses a few weeks ago--maybe regarding a change to zoning--does anyone know anything about it? I think it's proposed to be a multi-unit building. I've searched online but can't find anything more.

A neighborly opinion

Just wanted to see if those of you with experience dealing with neighbor/pet issues can offer some advice. My downstairs neighbors are young guys who moved in earlier this year. They have a cat and said that they are now letting their cat (who was never an outdoor cat before) go outside by himself. While I personally don't agree with keeping cats outdoors in the city and would never let my own kitty out, it's not my cat and therefore...

Just wanted to see if those of you with experience dealing with neighbor/pet issues can offer some advice. My downstairs neighbors are young guys who moved in earlier this year. They have a cat and said that they are now letting their cat (who was never an outdoor cat before) go outside by himself. While I personally don't agree with keeping cats outdoors in the city and would never let my own kitty out, it's not my cat and therefore not really my choice.

The issue I'm having is that this cat seems to not be too content about its new situation, especially with the weather being what it is, and slips into the building every chance he gets. He's spent several nights in another neighbor's apartment who felt bad for him and I have let him briefly into mine (after he followed me inside). He and my kitty didn't get along so out he went.
This morning he was meowing outside my door in the back stairway (probably got in while I was going in and out doing laundry yesterday).

So I guess I'm not sure which side of the intervention line this falls. Do I secretly find this cat a nice home with more doting owners, do I ignore the situation? Just want to get some objective opinions :)

Cat Food Donation (opened bag, unused portion)?

Any local rescue or similar that accept dry cat food donations (*opened bags*). I've gone through a few partial bags of food while switching my cat to something new. Rather than throw out perfectly good cat food, I'd like to at least try and donate.

One container is a mix of 3 flavors of Nature's Variety Instinct Grain Free (Duck, Rabbit, Chicken). Maybe 2 or 3 lbs worth. And the other is a 5 lbs. or so bag of the same brand, salmon flavor. None of them sat well with my cat for whatever reason.

Wisconsin Day trip from Chicago - Fall Foliage

Hi, I'm looking for a destination in the south part of WI that would be great for a fall foliage day trip. I'm looking for some good walking/hiking trails, beautiful scenery.

Thanks

    The hike around Lake Geneva can be beautiful. The full trip is about 26 miles and took us about 8 hours at a quick pace and with a lunch stop. The section nearest downtown Lake Geneva going counterclockwise is the easiest and it gets more difficult as you get to the Fontana side of the lake, although easily passable. I just don't think there's as much foot traffic over there.

    Devil's Lake is really fantastic, too. But, that's about 3 hours away.

    And, even though you specified WI, we recently went to the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore and had a great few hours hiking on the beach and trails. The trails there range from easy to difficult, 1 - 8 (or more) miles. I think that was 1 hour 20 minutes to drive out mid-day on a Saturday.

  • Just north of Lake Geneva is the southern unit of Kettle Moraine State Forest. There are many great hiking and biking trails. I was camping there a few weeks ago...Just beautiful!

New California stop is really pretty, gotta say

There was a crowd of reporters and guys in suits this morning getting on the revamped calf. blue line stop. not that many getting on, so i had time to snap a few pix. they did a gorgeous job stripping and restoring the old doors and it really looks great...

  • Do the platforms extending beyond the stairs on both sides feel less wide than before? The platforms were packed this morning. It seemed impossible to navigate around people to get a spot. It felt like they narrowed the width of the platform.

Friendly people, well kept homes, prices have gone up, still some bargains around. Your best bet is to go the locations you are interested in, go on different days, different times, drive & walk around the area, up & down the side streets & main streets, do this often and you will know where you feel like 'home'. I've lived here for many years, thru the ups & downs of the area. Transportation is great, walk to Blue Line, take it downtown, O'Hare & Midway, Kennedy Expressway is 2 blocks from me, shopping is great & many nearby restaurants, can't beat this location.

Mcdonalds 2707 N Milwaukee

I don't understand why ever time this Mcdonalds has a promotional event for kids, the signs are only in Spanish. Do they not want any English speaking kids at these events? This is an ongoing thing for this Mcdonalds and I find it very insulting.

    Last words from me on this silly, silly subject:

    The supposed failure of immigrants and their children to learn English is the basis for much concern about immigration and about bilingual education in the early twenty-first century. In fact, there is no reason to believe that current immigrants, any more than those in the past, will seek or be able to persuade their children to remain linguistically separate. Two leading supporters of bilingual education concede that "the United States is, at the societal level, staunchly monolingual. Legislating monolingualism as a requirement for citizenship could hardly have been more successful in creating a monolingual society than have been the unofficial economic and social forces at work." Among immigrant minority groups, "only the old folks, the very young, and the recent arrivals, in general, speak these other languages; the school children and young adults have often switched to 'dominance' in English" (Snow and Hakuta, p. 385). The continuing use of Spanish in California has not slowed the rate of shift to English as the primary language for individuals of Hispanic descent; while "in most areas of the United States approximately 70 percent of the native born currently are adopting English as their usual language," the rate is 85 percent in California (Veltman, p. 66).

Vintage Record Player Console Repair

Hi Neighbors! I inherited a vintage RCA Victor Console Record player from the mid 60s. Parts of it work, and parts don't. I don't know what I'm doing, but I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions of shops who might be able to take a look at this.

If anyone knows of a place that does house calls that would be great, because the entire unit is about 100lbs.

I did find an old thread on EveryBlock and some people recommended a few such as Deltronics, 20th Centruy and Mina's TV & Video, the last of which will come and pick up. Any other suggestions out there?

Thanks!

  • Anthony's Electronic Service on Irving Park and Broadway has fixed two turn tables for me. Just read the reviews.

  • Tanner at Uncharted books just had his console record player fixed. He said he knows a guy that fixes this type of record player. You might want to stop in there and ask him.

    Weather it is Glenn's explanation or Colin's where the truth lies, or a bit of both, it does not explain how anyone involved in the process, from the developer, to the ploicy makers to the funding agencies, can justify spending 2.4 million building a six flat that may appraise at slightly over 1 million the day it is finished. Paradoxically, this actually helps the NIMBY people, as the more expensive affordable housing units are, the fewer can be built. Consider that if $205,000 of public funds goes into a unit of $405,000 (based on the proposed budget), the same public money can be used to build 2 units at $305,000 each, or 4 units at $255,000, costs that are not out of reach for a private developer.

Free chicken feed (spent brewing grains - malted barley, no hops used)

Free chicken feed to anyone who'll come pick it up. I've got about five plastic shopping bags filled with it (3 frozen, 2 in the fridge soon to be frozen). I usually save them for a friend who has chickens but I need the room and I won't see them soon enough. I'm in Logan Square, Mozart and Dickens. Send a PM to arrange pick-up. Sorry for the blurry pic, it was getting dark and I was cleaning up. These grains can also be used to make dog biscuits, etc., too. There are no hops in these grains, they are added to the beer later in the process (hops can be harmful to animals...).

  • Generating a lot of spent grain today if you want some, just let me know how much! I'm near Saint Louis & Schubert, and it should be ready in the mid afternoon.

  • I'll take a grocery bags worth. Send a message to erinlynn 60618 @ gmail . Thanks!

And even if is not bad I still do not want them on my grass, i'm not a fan of pets, which is the reason I don't own one.

I don't know how many times I am walking out the front door and I see dog walkers with one or two of their furry friends on my front lawn and they don't say anything to me. They just keep going about their business.

Do people walking their dogs think this is just ok? Would animal lovers be offended if I shooed them away?

    In agree with all the posts that state the parkway is city property and is fair game for dog walkers, but when I look down the street, only a small percentage of the homes/apts have a bright green and well maintained parkway. People that are walking their dog could take that in to consideration and avoid the few parkways that show the building owner is making a strong effort to make it look nice. At the very least, one could discourage his dog from peeing in a spot where the grass is beginning to look unhealthy. I think the yellow spots come from everyone letting their dogs pee in the same spots to mark territory. Just a friendly suggestion that could keep gardeners and dog owners happy.

    This was the only store we went to have keys copied. They never failed on us. We'll miss the store and all the nice folks we chatted with each time we stopped in. We're going to the Ace on Milwaukee Ave across from the Congress Theatre now.
