Shots Fired Thursday night - Patrick Henry

My son said he heard three gunshots last night about 10:45 pm. He said several police cars responded but didn't know if they stopped (he saw them driving by). This is getting ridiculous that we're hearing shots so often. I mean, honestly, it's ridiculous to hear gunshots at all. Why do we put up with this BS?

  • I heard about 6 or so gunshots around 10. Several cops showed up and stayed for about half an hour or so. One of the cars on the block was shot at same spot the shooting always happens. Its getting out of hand.

  • Can anybody repost the link , I'm having a hard time downloading it. Thanks

Squirrels (or raccoon) in house

We need help removing wildlife from our house. We have squirrels or perhaps a raccoon living in the space between our top two floors. It is beyond our control. Can any suggest a wildlife removal company? And a roofing company? Thanks!!!

  • Thanks Tami. I'm through with trying to control it. The animals are too smart. And I don't want them gone, per se. Just out of my house (because as much as they bug me I enjoy watching the squirrels, especially the black ones are adorable). I have successfully repelled them for now with my cat's used kitty litter (gross but effective). We'll work towards getting a new roof in the spring. Thanks for your concern, though!

  • A friend of mine the same problem in Schiller Park. They crawled into the roof of his bungalow. He got them out but told me that the raccoon set up different areas of the roof as the bedroom, kitchen and toilet. Good luck!

Roofer referral?

Can anyone refer a good roofer/roofing company? Water is leaking from our top window frame and water marks are visible on our ceiling. Problem is that we are a 4 story building and the area that needs repair is covered with Spanish tile, which a couple contractors said was problematic to work with.

Thanks!

    vb,
    Usually one of five things s happening when that happens:
    1) whoever placed the ad is flat out lying
    2) there were multiple units renting in that building. they advertise the cheapest one to get attention. it worked, and the lower priced unit has already rented, so they only have the more expensive one listed.
    3) the company offers some kind of move in special (one or even two free months on an 18 month lease is not uncommon), and they list the net rent, rather than the "market" rent that they actually charge for the other 16 months on the lease
    4) during the slow seasons, management companies and owners will often be flexible with rents just to fill units. even if they are asking a certain price, some leasing agents may know they will come down on the price, and post the lower price.
    5) management companies also pay higher commissions when it's slow rental season. brokers and leasing agents are desperate to rent units. sometimes they will post a lower price, rent the unit at a lower price, and have the owner or manager take the difference out of their commission.

    That being said, the difference between $1200 and $1600 seems a little high for 3, 4, or 5 to be the case. So someone may just be dishonest, or they may have already rented the cheap apartment you saw advertised.

Typically, 30 to 100 designer brands - mainly from the host country - spend three to five days holding runway or other fashion shows to unveil the collections and fashion accessories they plan to introduce to the market half a year later.

As the clothes are worn by professional models and presented under special lighting with music, the shows are believed to be the best way to present designers' new looks.

Not all brand names can participate in such events, however. The ones that can are usually those enjoying profits from fairly large operations, since such shows naturally come with a high price tag. Most brands introduce their new styles in an exhibition format, in which clothes are simply hung up for display.

    I was startled awake by a loud noise at 5:10 a.m. Tuesday. Knew immediately that it was gunshot that I heard but had a feeling that it was more like a shotgun or AK assault weapon...very frightening cause it sounded like it happened right in front of our home. My husband confirmed that there were 5 quick shots and he heard them with his earplugs in (there is so much traffic on Wilson now and with the planes overhead all night...) his ears! This is NOT SUMMER...and it is happening...there is a war in our neighborhoods. The south side, the east side, the west side, the north side...it is everywhere.

    This is TOO MUCH everyone...the rest of the world thinks the U.S. is nuts with all the guns and gangs. When I lived overseas in 1992, I had heard that there were drive by shootings on Wilson because there was a gang banger living in the 3000 W. block. Here we go again...I am really angry and don't feel safe in my own home. IS ANYTHING BEING DONE ABOUT THIS? WHO IS IN CONTROL OF THIS CITY? WE ALL KNOW THE ANSWER TO THAT!

My bad for uttering a swear word after being hurt. I turned around and saw a small boy who appeared to have been 'drag racing' w/ another tot. Older adults gave me sympathetic looks. An employee said he hated those things but couldn't tell the parents to watch the kids. I asked about my options. I am the sole supporter and have diabetic feet. Was concerned about losing time from work. A manager 'Mark' was summoned. I repeated my concerns and asked him to get the mothers name/ph #. The woman then came up and said 'did she tell you what she said?' She was more concerned about the little darling hearing a swear word than inquiring about my safety. I said I had no interest in discussing this w/ her, but felt she should give the mgr the information. I wanted to leave and limp home. What is the liability here? If someone breaks something the store is quick to mop it up/place a cone to alert customers to the danger. I was hit from behind w/o warning. I am still in pain. Don't think anything is broken and will see my pcp next week.

    Deputy Dog, my octogenarian mom (may she rest in peace) loved to shop at the Boca Raton Costco and Wal-Mart (even though she detested the latter’s politics) because she got to drive those motor carts. (Never had one of her own). She bumped into shelves, but thankfully not into people. Nonetheless, it was a bit stressful accompanying her because I had to help navigate. It gave her independence, since she wouldn’t hear of me pushing my own cart when she had a perfectly good large basket on the motor cart. And it gave her a good reason for maintaining her drivers’ license (security when checking out a cart) for something other than check-cashing ID.

And the way I framed it was, "just wait until the BB's get a little older..." indicating that indeed the boomers are excluded from the commentary I was making. Boomers are a generation that are used as a marker for many conversations just because of the enormous size of the group. I wasn't attacking the boomers.

Opinions about Life Performance Gym on Kedzie, f/k/a BodyWorx

Hi - noticed this gym last weekend and was hoping to get people's updated opinions on it, since previous posts/Yelp reviews were quite negative. Apparently many people were upset at the outset when it was called BodyWorx and they signed people up before it opened and continued to charge their cards despite the fact that is was under construction for several more years. Now it appears to be a functional gym, but any positives or negatives from my neighbors? Thanks! Catherine

    Just so you know, the Salvation Army is virulently homophobic and spends lots of money on international anti-gay lobbying, as well as denying services to gay people in need. If that bothers you you may want to donate goods or money to Howard Brown Health Center. Their Brown Elephant resale stores will pick up your furniture. They provide medical, mental health, and social services to LGBT and all people, regardless of ability to pay. Their Broadway Youth Center focuses on homeless youth. Besides providing a safe space, food, showers, case management, a GED program, and medical care, they are always in need of travel size toiletries for their clients so definitely bring them your hotel treasures!

    There are some sites (chicagogangs.org and hoodup), where you can learn some, but you have to weed through much cruft. I also follow some some flickr accounts focusing on Chicago gang graffiti. And I also search YouTube to watch some of the gang videos. I figure if they are dumb enough to leave a trail, why not follow it.

    CAPS will talk a little about some of the gangs at beat meetings, but barely.

    I don't know much about gangs in general, just a few in my hood that I follow to be aware. I actually hate spending time learning this stuff. I'd rather be doing things I love.

    This address on Drake is a big problem. There have been other threads here that posted his address, but I don't believe this to be the proper place to do that. I believe 17th is well aware of this individual. I hope the aldermen (he's technically in Colon's ward, couple of blocks from Mell's, couple of blocks from Arena's, few blocks from Laurino's) are aware and working on this problem too.
