    That is an impressive photo of baby stuff. All Garage Sales in Events should include photos like that. I hope they were mobbed today by people looking for good deals. As you might imagine, I am a fan of those little fold-up strollers, not the SUV-sized ones, in crowded stores and public transportation.

  • Irving Bark Fined and ticketed to death

    I got there at 815 and had to wait in line to get inside.

    All the strollers were gone by then, I heard they had 40.

    People were lined up down the block long since 7 and I thought I was the only one who heard about it lol.

    It was well organized and everyone was very nice. I gotta pull a Hot Doug's next year and get here two hours before then doors open.

Police activity near Winnemac?

Anyone know what's up near Winnemac Park? Police helicopter circling with spotlight turned in, and lots of sirens...

    The PD is doing helicopter patrols over Rogers Park nightly, in an attempt to reduce the gang violence. After the arson of a gang members vehicle, and then a street murder a few days later, there is fear of an escalating gang war. So, possibly it was quicker and more advantageous to divert a copter to the park to flush out the perpetrator? Good move, if so!

    Police helicopters patrol just like squad cars do, and will get involved in car and foot chases when necessary. Sometimes the beat officer will see someone wanted for whatever reason, and will call for dogs and helicopters to help out when the guy takes off. Fairly common. A few years ago there was an incident in the Bucktown area, where a film crew was filming scenes for the TV show, Chicago Hope. During the filming, a junkie jumped into one of their vehicles containing expensive equipment. in an effort to steal it. The film crew chased the stolen truck, and eventually the CPD were called and became involved in chase. The guy was eventually caught after abandoning the truck, and following a lengthy foot chase. He was dodging in and out of alleys, gangways and vacant buildings, and with the help of the helicopters was found on a rooftop of a building at Maplewood and Division streets. Occasionally both worlds collide. This may have been one of those rare occurrences.

Helicopter Circling at Damen/Foster

This is the third time in the last six days that I've observed this (I know some other people on EB have seen this, as well). Though the last two times it was around 8 p.m. Tonight, it did it around 8 p.m., and now at 10:30, it's been going for at least 10-15 minutes. Anyone have an idea of what this is?

  • Bill Near Rockwell L

    I read that various aldermen have put pressure on the police to do SOMETHING to reduce crime, Joe Moore in Rogers Park has specifically requested police helicopter patrols, so maybe we will be seeing more CPD Air these days. Police air squads can be effective, eye in the sky and all that.

    Better than more gang infiltration in your neighborhood? If the Rogers Park patrols are making it harder for them to operate just north of you... Better than gunfire!

    If he is not a baby, he should not have alfalfa hay. Timothy is best, Oxbow. Please refer to Red Door's website for the safe salads to give bunny also. There are some that bunnies should not have. No yogurt treats or junk from pet stores. He'll be fine is you keep him on the Timothy, 80% of his diet, and two salads a day. Always a fresh bowl of water, and plenty of bunny toys to keep him from getting bored. Use an x-pen, not a cage. Any questions, just call us at Red Door for more instructions. We'll be happy to help.

  • Thank you, Gerry Benedetto, for your input on the care of rabbits! She is a friend and co-volunteer of mine at Red Door Animal Shelter in Rogers Park.

    She is absolutely correct about the Timothy hay and everything else. A salad can include Romaine lettuce, red leaf lettuce, dandelion greens,...

    Thank you, Gerry Benedetto, for your input on the care of rabbits! She is a friend and co-volunteer of mine at Red Door Animal Shelter in Rogers Park.

    She is absolutely correct about the Timothy hay and everything else. A salad can include Romaine lettuce, red leaf lettuce, dandelion greens, flat-leaf (Italian Parsley), basil, dill, and a few other herbs. They should receive about 3 different kinds of veggies every day. Most importantly, he can't have veggies that are high in Calcium (like Kale and curly parsley). That will make his urine milky-looking/whitish and it gives them a bladder infection.

    Again, please check Red Doors' site to see about bun's care. If you decide to give him up please notify them and they will help you...that's what we do! We love all of our rescues! And they eventually get loving homes.

The boy was walking north in the 4400 block of North Keeler about 3:10 p.m. when a man driving a black four-door Lincoln Town Car pulled out of a parking space and stopped next to him, according to a community alert from Chicago Police.

The man asked the boy where he lived, but the boy kept walking and did not answer, police said. The man then yelled at him to get in the car, at which point the boy ran northbound on Keeler while the man drove away southbound.

The suspect is described as a bald, 30 to 40-year-old Hispanic man with a mustache, police said.

Anyone with information should call Area North detectives at (312) 744-8200.

Apartment burglary

My friend's second-floor apartment near Damen/Lawrence unfortunately was burglarized during the day yesterday. Her laptop and jewelry were stolen, as well as a backpack to haul the stuff in, apparently. Thankfully her cute little cats were unharmed. The doors were bolted when she came home and no windows were broken, so they're not sure yet how the thief got in but they think he must have had a key somehow, possibly from/as a previous tenant.

That uncomfortable theory might raise questions of security and safety for all us renters out there. It also underscores the importance of having renter's insurance.

I hope karma bites that guy right in the a**.

  • b in edgewater/andersonville interested resident and business owner

    I wanted to address the issue of always making sure you have renters insurance. People tend to think the builidng they live in is totally secure and they " don't really own anything". Break ins are traumatic and the last thing you want to deal with is worrying about who pays for what. Get renters insurance. Barbara Janusek State Farm agency on Broadway and Bryn Mawr will get you coverage for less than $12.00 a month.

  • Agree with b, renters insurance also covers your personal property in your car if you have a break in. Your car insurance doesn't.

Recently I received a letter from a debt collector on behalf of the Chicago Tribune. The company claimed that I owed $32.25 and that I needed to pay them immediately--or I could call them to plead my case.

Naturally, I called them. They refused to produce evidence of the debt or explain where it came from --other than to direct me to Chicago Tribune.

So I called Chicago Tribune. They claimed that I had signed up for a Tribune trial from a door-to-door salesperson/kid asking for a donation for their education. They said that I had been receiving newspapers for months (I hadn't) and they had been sending me bills.

I have no idea what they were talking about. Neither does my wife. We'd never seen a door-to-door Tribune salesperson, much less signed up for a subscription. If the Trib had sent any bills, we probably assumed it was unsolicited junk mail.

The customer service rep eventually credited the account, but not before admitting that there were others like me calling in about their own mystery bills.

My suspicion is that this door-to-door "salesperson" put us on the list without consulting us. I'm curious to know if anyone else has experienced this.

Twice in my life I have signed up for subscription deals through salespeople at my door or on the street, and twice have indicated I want it to be non renewing, and have been assured it won't renew. (I only use it for coupons, and I have a bad habit of letting them pile up rather than using them, which then reminds me why I don't subscribe in the first place!) And both times, they have renewed, won't stop delivering the paper, they keep sending me bills, when I call I have to call multiple numbers to get it taken care of. Both times I've been sent to collections over it too, and have had to call to resolve it multiple times. It's a huge time waster and it makes me really angry.

Speed Camera coming near Lawrence/Cicero

http://www.suntimes.com/28537375-761/speed-cameras-to-be-installed-in-12-new-areas.html

Ashmore Playlot Park, 4807 W. Gunnison St.

Lived in North Mayfair for over 15 years and never knew that there was a city playlot behind the car wash place at Lawrence/Cicero and that there was a epidemic of kids being run over by cars on the way to the playlot.

I bet the cams will be on Cicero Ave and drivers going Northbound on Cicero who think that they just beat the Lawrence light will be in for a surprise. But I'm sure that the fine office of the 45th ward have the stats to back up a need for the camera. /sarc.

Dislosure: I've never received a red light or speed cam ticket.

  • So I noticed this camera out of nowhere today...because it flashed!!! 39th Warder...you mentioned thiswas just put up Friday?
    I read online the first 30 days you will only get a warning.....these are a joke!

  • Yes, I saw the workers installing it on Friday afternoon. But you're in luck. Per City of Chicago website:

    Will there be a warning period?
