Lost My Cat Wednesday Night, Orange Male, 7yo

My roommate and I moved to Whipple and Armatage on Wednesday. The cat was the last thing we brought to the new apartment, but by Thursday morning he was gone : ( His old owners used to let him outside so he's adventurous and he managed to jump out the kitchen window : /

He's a 7 year old orange cat with some strange dark red/black spots on his nose. No collar. His name is Oliver.

Please let me know if you have him or see him!

Thank you.

Found little grey cat

This little girl/guy was hiding under our porch today, crying for help to get out of the rain. (S)He looks about four to six months old; not dirty or injured and seems to be someone's pet. Very friendly! We've knocked on our neighbors doors but no one knows him/her. Looking for a quick EveryBlock miracle because I have four cats that want to eat this one.

I know a lot of EB-ers want to make suggestions about flyers, websites, TreeHouse, PAWS, scanned for chip, etc. I'm aware of all of these things -- just posting in case the owner is scrolling through here.

car flips no driver

Around 2:15am Kimball and Wrightwood

  • Jen60647, my neighbor mentioned that there had been a shooting on Wrightwood and Spaulding/Sawyer (I confuse the two, so I'm not sure which) on the morning of the crash that involved the 4 parked cars as well. Looks like the crime in this little section is increasing.

  • Jamie C In Logan Sq. since 2004

    I assume the car flipped because the car was driving westbound on Wrightwood and had to make a sudden sharp turn to avoid the barricade.

    Didn't see anything on the Trb's site nor in Google. Haven't looked, but maybe something on the police channels?

    @Carter, there is no need to get angry or offended. I didn't compare Logan Square to Manhattan, nor do I want Logan Square to resemble Manhattan. I simply used Manhattan as an example of how density reduces dependency on cars. Increased density around transport hubs reduces the number of cars on the roads. Manhattan's low rate of cars per capita is evidence of that. If even one person gets rid of their car because of proximity to public transportation, you have reduced the total number of cars on the road because the alternative is that every one of those people must find housing in a spread out neighborhood that necessitates owning a car.

    Look, I'm not here to argue with you. If you want to believe this type of development is bad for the neighborhood, that is your prerogative. I am squarely in the camp of those that support this kind of development as a way to increase foot traffic which always leads to good things. Can we at least agree that it is vastly better than the condemned, dilapidated eye-sores that are there now?

  • Logan Dad Logan Dad

    I will also cite Orange County as an example of the opposite of Manhattan. OC is totally spread out and cars are a way of life there. Low density = high dependence on cars, high density = fewer cars per person on the road and increased foot traffic.

    Former U-verse user here! As far as customer service goes, they're MUCH better (obvi). Our internet wasn't particularly fast and we got the "highest tier" but we also just used their gateway. With a better router/modem we probably would have been better off. As far as outages go we experienced only one in the year we used them. Not bad.

    We never would have switched to comcast if not for the fact that U-Verse won't service tv in our area and we needed a bundle. They're also totally painless to cancel and don't harp on you about it. I miss you already, U-verse.

  • Ours is still down. Been over 24 hours now. We finally talked to someone helpful about an hour ago, but all she could say was that the problem was supposed to be fixed by 5PM tonight, but here it is 10PM, so clearly that didn't happen. She did get me hooked up on a hotspot though so I have internet. Slow internet, but it's better than nothing.

Body of a male found dead with bag over head in alley?

    I enrolled in Everyblock for reasons of keeping an eye on family members & the areas they live in.

Want more trees in Logan Square?

Logan Square Preservation, a community-based, volunteer run non-profit working for over 30 years to protect Logan Square's historic boulevards, is raising money to plant trees and undertake the neighborhood's first tree inventory and maintenance plan. We applied for two grants that will provide $15,000 in funding and resources to plant 20 trees this fall along Humboldt Boulevard and to develop a tree maintenance plan. However, we will not receive those grant funds without the needed $10,000 in matching funds. Please help us reach our goal of $10,000.
Visit our fundraising site to learn more and donate today! Any amount helps!


  • Carter O'Brien old enough to remember the Super Transfer

    There is a volunteer organization many of us are active in called Treekeepers:

    There is a volunteer organization many of us are active in called Treekeepers:


    I encourage budget-conscious and tree-loving folks to sign up, it's good for the City and one's spiritual health!

    Regarding this project, Nicole and all of the LSP folks *are* volunteers. If the City did this, we'd be on the hook for salaried staff.

    The City does take care of trees and plant them as able, but Emanuel inherited a budget full of red ink and structural problems such as decades of under-funded pensions (by we the taxpayers, mind you).

    Leveraging grant money with donations is a very budget-savvy to jumpstart projects that otherwise will not happen. Between Dutch elm disease, the longhorned beetle and now the emerald ash borer, Chicago's tree stock is under constant assault. Urban trees, due to salt, compacted soil (and knuckleheads who do things like dump hot coals on them), etc. have a greatly reduced lifespan from their suburban and rural counterparts.

    To the cost - a tree mature enough to handle the stress of the City (think 8 - 12' above the root ball) is grown at a private nursery. It takes many years before a seedling gets that large, on a recent project at home we paid about $450 for such a specimen. Add costs to transport it, plant it, mulch it, and then the long-standing costs of mulching and trimming. $1,000 a tree is far from unrealistic, and this project is also adding an inventory, which is a great idea as it helps with the bigger picture planning.

    I think trees more than pay for themselves in terms of environmental benefits and infrastructure benefits; reducing urban heat island effect (lowering the AC bill), cleaning the air (good for lungs), and absorbing stormwater (basement flooding...). Studies also suggest that they reduce violence and can even accelerate healing (studies of hospital patients who did and didn't have views of trees form their rooms).

    Nice work Nicole and company!

    Wow - what great conversation - thanks to everyone for your thoughtful contributions!

    I'm a member of Logan Square Preservation, and am helping organize the Tree Planting Campaign. The Tree Planting Campaign is about getting neighbors involved in helping to plan, plant and maintain trees. A big part of what we are doing is about creating partnerships. Right now we are partnering with Openlands and residents like you to ensure that our community has the resources it needs to restore the tree canopy and green spaces along Logan Square's historic boulevards. We had a kick-off event Sat July 26, co-hosted by Openlands, where over 30 volunteers, including Alderman Waguespack, helped spread mulch (delivered by the Bureau of Forestry, so they are a partner too!) around trees on Humboldt Blvd between Armitage and Dickson. We hope to hold these events every Spring and Fall. You can see details about the Humboldt Blvd Tree Care event on Openlands and Logan Square Preservation's Facebook pages.

    The next step is to raise money to: 1). plant ~30 trees this fall [on Humboldt between Armitage and Shakespeare], 2). over the next year conduct a tree inventory for all the trees within Logan Square's Historic Boulevard District [go to Logan Square Preservation's webpage to see a map of the district boundaries], 3). conduct a survey of people who use the boulevards, 4). continue to organize volunteer tree care days, and 5). develop outreach and educational materials for residents on tree care.

    We are interested in your ideas, and will be organizing a community conversation about the Tree Planting Campaign this Sept. Bottom line - no one agency or organization has all the resources needed - we must partner with each other to make a meaningful impact.

    If you'd like to sign-up to learn more, contact me at boulevardtreecare@gmail.com.

    I hope to see you all at the Longman & Eagle fundraiser this Tuesday August 5, 6-9, and/or at the community conversation in Sept!

lost my sunglass on the blue line at logan square this morning

Hi there, my sunglasses apparently fell out of my purse sometime between getting on at Logan around 9:15 and the California stop. I think they may have fallen out before I boarded. They are brown Chanel frames, kind of old and scratched, and with very different prescriptions in both eyes so pretty useless to anybody else. Long shot, but thought I'd post here.......

Don't feed the troll: Tip/Poem #1 - Mute that troll!

Today you are happy
Don't let that go
Take it easy
Just mute that troll

You're being productive
Your eyes on the goal
Avoid starting a beef
It's simple: mute that troll

We know you are right
And that it is hard to control
But let it go this time
Come on, mute that troll

  • Rather than mute, I'd say take over their threads with something totally unrelated, and just ignore them with your eyes and brain rather than with the mute button.

My bike was locked to a city rack at Francis Pl. & California yesterday afternoon, and was totally destroyed sometime in the early afternoon while I worked. When discovered, I asked around & was told there was a car that hit like 5 cars between Armitage & Dickens.

I know its a long shot, but if someone saw it, I might have a shot at getting some compensation...

Just discovered mold on our drywall in the basement. Anyone know who I would call to figure out where it's coming from and to clean up? Thanks!

We had a similar problem with our new condo and based on their expertise, insights and direction we fixed the issue and haven't had a problem since. Can't recommend them enough.

  • Nathan Dougal 13 year Humboldt Park resident

    Use an anti microbial hospital grade cleaner available at industrial supply houses by the case and fungicidal paint from Grainger on replaced drywall- use greenboard- and save yourself some money and just have a handyman do it- that is all the mold guys do... Also, increase airflow in remediated walls with air vents ( metal inserts installed in drywall from any home repair supply).
