Blue Star Memorial at Harlem and Avondale

To whomever restored the Blue Star plaque it looks great. I took the flag down because it was a disgrace.

What a Good Idea!!!

Anybody notice the homemade doggie doo plastic bag dispensers secured to the trees around Onahan School??? Great thought!!! Anybody know how that came to be???

  • The girl scout troop made them for the neighbors that walk there dog's around the school. Now there should be no excuse for not picking up after there dogs. Great idea!!!

  • Our 2nd grade Brownie troop made them. Many people walk their dogs around the school without cleaning up after them. Our girls needed to earn a service patch and we came up with the idea after seeing them around Olympia Park. The girls were very excited to make them!!! Hopefully people will "get the message" and use the bags so our poor students don't have to step in doggie poop on their way to/from school. Thanks for noticing our hard work. :-)

  • Or step on doggy doo doo on the field where they have recess. I think it's a great idea and now I have a place to put my plastic bags.

60631 post Office

This post office is getting worse and worse. I went to mail a letter Monday. Even though it was simply Presidents Day all three mail boxes were overflowing as they do during the Cristmas Season. Nothing is going on that this should of happened. It appears that they didn;t pick up on Saturday. THIS IS NOT SAFE!!! People are mailing bills, sending out important information, I complain and complain. No one as of this point has listened. To add insult...

This post office is getting worse and worse. I went to mail a letter Monday. Even though it was simply Presidents Day all three mail boxes were overflowing as they do during the Cristmas Season. Nothing is going on that this should of happened. It appears that they didn;t pick up on Saturday. THIS IS NOT SAFE!!! People are mailing bills, sending out important information, I complain and complain. No one as of this point has listened. To add insult to injury today when my mail was delivered, once again, they missed the box for some of it. So now when I get my mail I not only have to check the mail box but I need to check the ground and front yard area. It is not uncommon to receive others mail tha I am at least good enough to return to the post office or proper owner. I wonder how much of my mail is in others mail boxes and not forwarded to me. I have been waiting for a $50.00 refund check for four months now that I was assured it was mailed. Have no idea where it's at. Please support our area for better postal service by filing complaints with the postal service, alderwoman, and congressman. This is really getting bad.

Roadkill at front door on 6300 block of Sayre Ave.

I recently posted that I had the best neighbors, but apparently I included one that shouldn't have been. When I opened my front door to get my newspaper this morning, I found a flattened, dead squirrel laying on the mat, with some of it's insides strewn about the front stoop. It didn't get there by some punk throwing it from a passing car, or walking down the sidewalk. This person deliberately walked up our walkway to the front entrance and...

It didn't get there by some punk throwing it from a passing car, or walking down the sidewalk. This person deliberately walked up our walkway to the front entrance and placed it there.

We have done absolutely nothing to deserve this to happen, it's disgusting and cowardly. If someone has an issue with my household, ring my doorbell and tell me what I, my sister, or my 83 year old father has done to piss you off, because I am completely at a loss for a reason.

Too bad my cameras weren't recording, but they will be ...

  • I'll bet you're one of those neighbors who feed the squirrels...you do realize they are a member of the rodent family, right??? And leaving food out for any animals is never a good idea as it attracts additional unwanted rodents.

Act of Kindness from the Norwood Park Post Office Worker

I was pleasently surprised last week when the mail woman stopped at my home and rang the doorbell to give me a piece of mail that was flying down the street. This is a good sign that there are people who care about their jobs and others :)

  • Chris om nom nom

    Thanks for posting this. USPS as a company gets a lot of flack, deservedly so, but the vast majority of postal workers are good folks working hard at a crappy, understaffed job.

  • Amy

    We have actually been receiving mail every day for the last couple of weeks, and it comes in the afternoon now, not 7pm. Maybe they have new staff?

  • Nick Neighborhood watch

    Well.....hate to say it, but I may have spoke too soon. Not that I'm sorry for appaulding the nice postal worker, whoever delever the mail the last two days gave me my neighbors two days in a row. I am wondering where my maiil is at, becuase no one has come to my door with mine. I feel like I am a postal employee these days..

Where to buy an outdoor playset?

We have very a small yard and are looking for a basic wooden climber that is essentially an elevated playhouse/fort without swings/slide. A treehouse without the tree. We live walking distance from a playground so all the bells and whistles aren't required. Any ideas?

  • My sister wants to sell hers this year. Bought at Costco 9 years ago. In great condition, no wood rot. Asking $350. It sounds like what you want. I'd attache a picture here but I don't think they allow. How do we private message one another?

  • Sss

    Thanks Jenny. I sent you an email.

Landscaper needed

We are looking to grade our yard, possibly put in drainage, and do some cement work to alleviate yard flooding. Does anyone have a rec for a reliable, affordable landscaper/landscape architect?
