Found Dog

Still hoping to reunite this friendly little guy with his family. Found on 11/17 near Barry and Christiana.

  • Jen

    No, he doesn't respond to Lucky and the collar was not the same as Lucky was wearing. We'll keep trying!

  • You could try posting on Lost Dogs of Illinois too. If you haven't posted fliers they have a ready made form to create one.

SOS at Animal Control

Animal control is COMPLETELY FULL.
Because of this they will be killing tons of adoptable animals. Please if you can foster or adopt let me know ASAP. Fostering is free and temporary. Please share this to your Facebook statuses.

  • Jen

    Adopting pets is great but fostering would actually help more animals bc you can continuously provide a place for new animals that would otherwise be killed to go to

    gblight CACC is not a non for profit org, it is a publicly funded city agency that is obliged to take in every animal that is dumped there -- aka the "city pound." So education, as Jessica stated, is critical to reduce the overpopulation burden until there is magically enough city money to build an endless amount of shelter space.
    Fostering and adopting are both great things to do. I don't know why we have to argue either/or. For those that can do neither, volunteering your time or contributing in other ways (blankets etc) are great too!

Township closing?

Does anyone know the full story? I heard last night that it was their last show and I've also heard the bar itself is closing. Anyone know what's up?

  • Bludog 21 years in LS

    From The Reader: Owner Tamiz Haiderali says Township will continue to host concerts, though that's on pause now. "It all happened a little too sudden for everyone involved, but Township is open, it's going to stay open,"

  • Bludog 21 years in LS

    Also from The Reader: We heard from Peterson (of MP Shows) shortly after publishing the story, who says that he was bought out of his half of Township last night. "My partner and I [Haiderali] have been trying to dissolve our partnership for about a year, and we were essentially negotiating to buy each other out," Peterson says.

TRIBUNE: Fate of STOP FOR PEDESTRIANS IN CROSSWALK signs

TRIBUNE transportation reporter Jon Hilkevitch has article in 11/24/2014 Monday Getting Around column that mentions Logan Square.

Mid-intersection street mounted sign Milwaukee at Sawyer went MIA early spring 2014. I asked Alderman Rey Colon about replacement. Answer: ~$500 cost must come from 35th Ward Aldermanic menu funds, not City/CDOT budget. So I contacted Mr. Hilkevitch since:

Mid-intersection street mounted sign Milwaukee at Sawyer went MIA early spring 2014. I asked Alderman Rey Colon about replacement. Answer: ~$500 cost must come from 35th Ward Aldermanic menu funds, not City/CDOT budget. So I contacted Mr. Hilkevitch since:
1. in street mounted signs STOP FOR PEDESTRIANS IN CROSSWALK are visual cue that enhances Pedestrian Safety. Milwaukee Ave location has 25,000 vehicles/day AND is heavily used by pedestrians day & evening on City designated PEDESTRIAN ORIENTED STREET in heart of vibrant Logan Square business district.
2. signs are intrinsically subject to wear/damage and getting plowed over by (idiot) drivers
3. CDOT/City annual budget should anticipate replacement cost for these signs, like replacement of Stop, Tow Zone, No Parking etc which come from City budget, not Alderman ward menu funds
4. Red Light and Schools/Parks cameras bring in ~$100,000,000 per yr. It's not Mayor Emanuel slush fund to plug police overtime etc. Public Safety & real leadership means: take some of that $ and pay to replace damaged signs STOP FOR PEDESTRIANS IN CROSSWALK as needed.

The DUI KING of City Council, Alderman Rey Colon offered this comment in Tribune: "These signs are very popular with constituents who request them often," Colon said. But he said the average life of the signs "is like freshly cut flowers that wither and die."

Alderman: it's time for your political career to do the same.

  • I think those little buggers should grow by three feet, glow like a sci-fi show, and be made of METAL. That would teach people real fast to pay attention and stop running over the little neon man!

  • I dunno...Many people who hit those signs don't take care of their cars anyway, so adding some scratches to go with the speed holes and fart cans (mufflers) won't matter to them...

Recommend Company to do Network and A/V Wiring for New Home?

We are building a new home in Logan Square, and need some expertise on the Network, Audio/Visual wiring design of the house.

Our electrician says he can run the cables any way we'd like, but we were looking for someone who can help with the design, picking the correct materials and making sure the right work is done.

Any recommendations?

  • Again I agree 100 percent with Keith. They set up everything in our home and recently came back out to install another TV for us. An added bonus is they are so mindful of your time and so clean!!!

Missing Mail

Hey neighbors. I've recently become aware of several important pieces of mail that never got delivered to us and am trying to figure out the best way to address this and with whom (ie, call the post-office on California, track down my mail carrier, call the national branch??).

Hey neighbors. I've recently become aware of several important pieces of mail that never got delivered to us and am trying to figure out the best way to address this and with whom (ie, call the post-office on California, track down my mail carrier, call the national branch??). After being in our location for 2 years, we've suddenly had mail returned to a couple of different senders with notices like, "address unknown," or they'll say they attempted 3 times, even though there was no notice and I was home each of the dates listed on the "attempt form." I have verified that the address was correct on the letters/packages that were returned. We still continue to get all our junk mail and ComEd bills as well as other peoples' mail, but now we're missing stuff. Any suggestions or input would be much appreciated!

    Julie, I suggest that -- unless the mis-delivered mail you receive is within a house or two of being correct -- you take it back to the Clemente post office in person. With evidence of faulty delivery in your hand, you have much more power to complain about your own missing mail. When I did this a few years ago, it received much more attention than the simple "my mail is missing" message.

    I agree with the other posters' observations about regular versus substitute mail carriers. The performance of the latter only serves to underscore the notorious reputation of the post office.

    The quality of delivery accuracy to me has improved over the past two decades. However, my experience with neighborhood mailboxes has gone in the opposite direction. At this point, I drop all outbound mail only at the Clemente post office. Forgive me if this is a thread hijack, but I wonder how many others have been likewise trained by negative reinforcement into this habit.

Christmas trees??

I finally live in an apartment with very tall ceilings and am very excited to have a nice, tall Christmas tree this year. Any suggestions for where I can go in the area to buy a tree this year??

  • Used to go to Gethsemane even though it was far (it was close to my mom's and we had a tradition of buying our trees together). For the past couple of years, I've gone to Christy Weber on Grand. Trees have held their needles well.

thanks. i know it's a long shot!

    i don't see much of a distinction, it's still an ad regardless of who posts it. how can you tell if the person posting is a tenant or a landlord? if you make exceptions that are easy to get around, you're left with no rule at all.

  • I'm sorry if I upset anyone. I thought since there was an option to check to post about needing a place to live I could post here. I thought it would be better on here to share with the community that we were looking for someone to take over our lease. We are not a broker or the management company. And also maybe someone on here had a friend or relative looking to move to the area.

    We have been in the neighborhood a little over 20 years and I would say this behavior comes in waves. I do recommend having a can of paint or graffiti remover yourself as it is best just to cover/remove these tags as quickly as you can. The taggers will get bored of your garage more quickly then and will choose a different target. Talk to your neighbors and work together to communicate about any tagging or suspicious activity.

    As far as worrying...I wouldn't lose any sleep over this as it is random and nothing against you personally.

Lost dog near Altgeld and California named "Louie"

Around 6.30am when I was out walking my dog a neighbor was calling for his dog, Louie (Louis?).

He seemed distraught, and in not shire if he's posted here yet. He described Louie as a brown / tan, very large pit bull. He lives in the apartments on he corner of Altgeld and California above Mops Beauty. I didn't get a name or apartment number.

If anyone has seen Louie, feel free to message me and I'll try to find the owner.

Keep a lookout for Louie, it's cold out there!

  • If you find the owner, tell him to post flyers all over the area right away-it can be very effective. Thanks for helping out.

  • I live nearby on Logan and will keep my eye out. Please let us know if he finds him.

Sometimes the crime listed is not readily understood from the description. The link below is to the Illinois State Police Uniform Crime Reporting Offense Codes. You can get the crime from the EB Daily Digest, then refer to the Codes for the applicable IL statute, then just Google the statute number found under ILCS Reference.

Offense Codes: https://www.isp.state.il.us/docs/6-260.pdf
