I was walking home yesterday around 4 p.m. on Hoyne ave just past Fargo when somebody started following me. The middle aged black man made light conversation with me about how cold it was then he asked me where I lived he started touching me inappropriately through my ski jacket telling me I had a nice jacket. I immediately ran to the gate of my condo as he walked the opposite direction. I didn't get a good description on him so I did not call the police. I'm posting this to put other females on notice and want the community to keep and eye out and also to be really careful. Scary

Did anyone notice the orange and white helicopter hovering over Touhy near McCormick this morning around 8AM? Was there something going on?

Ald. Silverstein wants to put in Permit Parking on my street. This would not only cost me more money on a street I already pay taxes for but would not solve the problem. I also would need to buy guest passes for visitors. My family has live din the same place for 50 years and the population of the neighborhood keeps going up and will continue to do so, that means even if you pay for the permit you still...

I have a 6 year old son with Autism, he is in therapy outside of school 5 days a week. Not only would I need guest passes 2 days a week for my babysitter but I would also need 2 passes 2 days a week for the therapists that come to my house from 5:30-7:30 pm (permit enforcement would start at 5pm) this is ludicrous and would cost me a lot of money, money that I use to provide my son with extra therapy. Has anyone else had a problem like this or tried this route in their neighborhood only to have them thinking "Uh Oh"? I would appreciate any feedback. I was sent a survey and when I tried to fax it in, the fax number provided was for a business called AON downtown, hmmm. Diversion tactic?

No exaggeration, like *20* rapid shots at Arthur and Bell in West Rogers around 1:30 am. Several squad cars within minutes. Couldn't decipher anything from the window but hope no one was hurt. Anyone else around see/hear anything?

Anyone got the scoop on the old Dominicks on Ridge? Looks like they're doing a bunch of work there and I heard it was gonna be a grocery called Cermak produce or something like that. Thanks.

Just wondering what time and date the Rogers Park and West Ridge neighborhoods trick or treat? We're new to the neighborhood. Do all the neighborhoods do it at the same time?

Does anyone know the reason for helicopters over Rogers Park (The Park) and southwest, maybe to Touhy and California (from my vantage point in the park), between 4 and 4:30 this afternoon.

I saw numerous fire trucks as I was driving by around 4 p.m. I'm fearing it was something serious.

Anyone know what caused the fire? I don't know where exactly it is but I smelled it from my house. Didn't wanna go investigate it.
Money talks. Just in case anyone thought the Mayor's selling out of Chicago residents to the big airlines (on all manner of issues, airplane noise being just one of them) had stalled with all his lip service about "looking into the issue," here comes the news that airplane execs -- most of whom don't live in the city (no surprise) -- have shelled out big cash to Emanuel's campaign chest. No strings attached, though (yeah, sure).

Chicago's most dangerous intersections for pedestrians--Touhy and McCormick is near the top!
In the suburbs, the most dangerous intersections were McCormick Boulevard and Touhy Avenue in Skokie; Cicero Avenue and Cermak Road in Cicero; and U.S. Route 12 and Cermak Road in Westchester.
Hello all. Hope to see you all if you can make it. Meeting is at Green Briar Park, 2650 W. Peterson. Have a good day. Thanks, Jeanne

I was unable to attend the community meeting this evening regarding the sale and potential redevelopment of the old Z Frank space at Western and Peterson. Was anyone there and have any information? Overall feel for how this will pan out?

I am running an Intergenerational Arts Program and I have room for a few more students interested in gaining service hours and experience by volunteering and doing photography, video, a journal article, and assisting with the older adult program. The program is 5 weeks long, on a weekend afternoon and one weekday afternoon / evening. Can anyone recommend the Community Service Director at a nearby high school ? Contact Sharon Hyson, Arts Educator and Art Therapist at email@example.com for further information.
