Cops

Does anyone know what has been going on between 10:30pm-midnight (almost every night) near Rockwell and Ainslie? I have seen multiple cop cars, even vans, fly down the street.

  • robin in WRP misanthrope

    I would ask at the next CAPS meeting

  • MJB ASNA member

    You can call the CAPS office and ask what was going on or ask at your next best meeting like already suggested.

  • Craig Born and raised in the city.

    There are a bunch of young gang members that hangout around there.

Speed Cameras on Foster

I am not sure if this topic has been covered before, but I have a question about all the speed cameras, especially on Foster. Is the city equipped with cameras that record your speed on the side in which the camera is located, or can the cameras record car speeds from across the street? I have researched this a bit and found that over in the UK there are speed cameras that can record from both sides of the highway/street. But I am not sure if it's the same for the city. Does anyone know for sure?

  • Ravens Yes.I can fix that.

    Hello Wondrous. Speaking of cameras, I got speeding ticket on Lawrence just west of Cicero for "park safety zone". However the park in question is located @ 4807 W. Gunnison according to the city's website. I did not get a ticket for park that is 2 blocks further west on Lawrence. I'm going to ask the judge to explain that one. By any chance do you know where to apply for Rahm's chauffeur job. Willing to work for minimum just for the perks

  • Ravens Yes.I can fix that.

    Just a question I've pondered. If you're going too slow, does anybody take a picture of that & fine you for obstruction of traffic. What if you want to make a turn on red, however the driver sitting in front of you doesn't. The light turns green and then they turn right, no pictures, no fines, no court date? Any & all thoughts welcome.

Pick Up Two Poops

Hey all,

I'm sure that most dog owners who read this are the responsible kind. Sure, everyone's been in a situation where they forgot a poop bag at some point, or their dog has pooped twice when it usually only poops once, so they are left without a bag. But I'm sure you figure out a way to pick it up, or track it down a little later after you secure a bag.

However, I'm sure you've also noticed that...

Hey all,

I'm sure that most dog owners who read this are the responsible kind. Sure, everyone's been in a situation where they forgot a poop bag at some point, or their dog has pooped twice when it usually only poops once, so they are left without a bag. But I'm sure you figure out a way to pick it up, or track it down a little later after you secure a bag.

However, I'm sure you've also noticed that there is a ton of dog poop out there. For some reason, the snow seems to deter people from picking it up. I have no idea why.

As I was walking my dog this morning, I was near the end of the walk, with an extra plastic bag in hand. My dog had already pooped and we were heading in, when we came across an orphan turd. So, I decided to pick it up with my extra bag, and deposit it properly.

What if all of us, the responsible dog owners, each pick up an extra turd on each walk. It's a pretty easy way to beautify our neighborhoods a bit. Sure, we shouldn't have to do the job for these other dog owners, but it's not going to teach them a lesson to leave it there either. JOIN ME! Let's call it the "Pick Up Two Poops" movement.

  • I already do this and it's great that others are doing it as well.

  • @davenswood I usually wait until I'm at the end of the walk (and my own garbage bin) to toss them, but I can't say that I'd mind if others used mine.

    Apologies for the assumption. I recently sold my multi unit and I complied for 12 of the 19 years that I owned it because of my conscious and my willingness to do a small part. I know quite a bit of other owner/landlords that feel it eats away at their income. I never felt that an extra $23 a month was bad at all. It also cut down on the space for actual garbage reducing the amount of extra pickups. Most don't see it that way. It's unfortunate. Best of luck with your quest to bring this to others attention.

  • I so appreciate hearing the perspective of someone in the know.

Lost rings at LSAC

I'm hoping against hope that someone sees this.
I accidentally left three rings on a treadmill at LSAC on Monday evening and the LSAC lost and found doesn't have them.

One is my wedding ring, one is my engagement ring and one is the last thing that my mother gave me before she died. To say that these rings are important to me is a gross, gross understatement.

I won't ask questions, I won't call the police but if you have these rings, please reach out to me at jlhowell74@gmail.com. I cannot express how devastated I am at the loss of these.

Thanks,

Cat found at Argyle & Wolcott

Black and white cat found at 1:30 AM at the intersection of Argyle and Wolcott. Aged 2-5 approximately, no collar, no chip. Sex not determined. Frostbitten nose. Still has claws. Very affectionate. Please help to find the family he/she belongs to!

  • Many no kill shelters don't take in strays directly. They only pull from kill shelters (PAWS, for example). Treehouse admits strays directly. Thanks for the patronizing question though.

    It IS Grissell!! I got an email from my neighbors indicating that the cat has been missing for a week. I'm happy to help put her together with her family. Please let me know if I can -- or, as indicated in my previous post, you can find them on Wolcott, north of Winnemac on the east side of the street ... brown brick two-flat.

My only issue with their office is how big it has become over the years; however, unlike Town & Country (I've heard the exact same complaints about that practice that others have stated), you have your own pediatrician unless you go in for an unplanned visit.

    JABA,

    Zoning was much of my profession. Many, Many of the well connected achieve and maintain their level in life thru zoning changes and the wealth it brings. The last city wide zoning change, about 2002 was brought to us by Bill Banks, a now retired Alderman. Who has one of the now biggest zoning law pratices around, Bill's brother Sam. You see all those just vanila buildings going up around here, Irving/ Ashland, Belmont/Rockwell, Irving/Campbell, they are all built by the same guy and always rep'd by the same realtor, Serigo and Banks.

    Like anyone who was interested in their profession you notice things related to your profession, is it a crime?

    There are many things that make up a resident of a neighborhood, and we have many here great & friendly. So I see a dumpster behind Movement, and see one of the guys who work next door, we say Hi to each other in the mornings and I ask what going on after all these years, we chat. I am out in the alley a day or 2 later with the kids and bricks and junk are flying into the dumpster, dust clouds all over and the kids are sent to the yard. Finally the place is getting cleaned out, but for years I had been involved in that kind of rehab, with those kinds of hazards and I have never seen it done that way, not the way it was explained in the bi annual OSHA classes I had to take for years? So what do I do, forget what I know, just inhale the dust? Do I dismiss my years of following city code? Should Windy City Fitness have to adhere to code, but Movement not? I did not chase Movement, they came here. And after going to the Ward office, they put themselves up for review. Hundreds of businesses do it by the book, is Movement special?

    Mutant super fit beings? Blame Pawar? I am, getting to like the Grass Nud Horse thing, a working thinking being. Thanks.

eReviews Dyman Associates Publishing Inc: 'Whipping Boy' by Allen Kurzweil

When a middle-class Jewish boy from New York enrolled at a Swiss boarding school in 1971, the lessons in swordsmanship and elocution were hardly the strangest things he encountered. Unchaperoned boys were often sent with minimal supplies on expeditions into the frozen Alps for multiple days.

Younger boys, barefoot and without gloves, cleaned pubic hair and dirty gunk from the drains of the common showers (which dispensed cold water). And once the doors in the dormitories closed each night, supervision, minimal as it was, ceased.

Even faint rumors of the behavior in the anecdotes from Allen Kurzweil's new memoir, "Whipping Boy," would trigger lawsuits today. Kurzweil's roommates forced him to swallow painful quantities of hot sauce; they whipped him with a belt while playing "The Thirty-Nine Lashes" from "Jesus Christ Superstar;" they hurled his most treasured possession, an irreplaceable family heirloom from his deceased father, out the window of their fifth-story room. The worst of the bullies threatened to throw Kurzweil out the window as well.

"Boys will be boys" doesn't capture the gravity of their behavior; "boys will be sadistic little monsters whose victims suffer lifelong trauma" is more precise. Suffice it to say that boarding school made a lasting impression on Kurzweil. He was a middle-class Jewish kid from New York, but his peers were the sons and daughters of bankers, aristocrats and heirs to vast fortunes. He was soon nicknamed "Nosey" in sneering tribute to his Jewish roots.

I found a lost cat on Monday evening at the intersection of Argyle and Wolcott. It is a male cat, black and white, aged 2-5 years old. He has since been neutered since being in my care, he still has claws and no microchip or collar. After taking him to Treehouse, we have discovered he is FeLV positive and I can no longer keep him in my home due to owning a cat already. I am looking for ANYONE at all who can help in any way. I have found a suitable overnight boarding situation but otherwise, he will be sent to animal care and control and his diagnosis will result in euthanizing. I am looking for anyone who may know the owner of this cat, has any resources to find a foster, or can aid in helping to get this guy a home. Please let me know if anyone can help this guy out at all!!!!! Thank you!!!

  • FIV and FeLV are two different things. Cats who are FIV+ can live with FIV- cats and, if they coexist peacefully (i.e., don't draw blood), will not infect them. FeLV is feline leukemia, and it is highly contagious. It can be spread by very casual contact. FeLV will destroy a cat's immune system much more quickly than FIV, and FIV+ cats can live long, healthy lives.

  • Feline Friends might be able to help or at least advise. You can google them and send an email to Toni or Lisa. They'll reply to you. Thank you for trying to help this kitty!

5 Gründe, Warum, Die Ihr Kreditkartenantrag Abgelehnt

Seien wir ehrlich: eine Kreditkarte, die Ihren Bedürfnissen entspricht zu finden kann schwierig sein. Wenn Ihr Antrag abgelehnt wird, ist es natürlich, sich ein wenig verstimmt – vor allem, wenn Sie nicht sicher sind, warum wurden Sie verweigert.

Hier sind fünf Gründe, die Kreditkartenabrechnungen abgelehnt bekommen, und was Sie dagegen tun können.

1. Ihre Kredit-Score ist zu niedrig.

Das erste, was zu tun ist, der Emittent anrufen, und Fragen, warum Ihr Antrag abgelehnt wurde. Unter der Equal Credit Opportunity Act müssen Sie eine kreditgebende Stelle den Grund für die Ablehnung Ihrer Darlehen oder Kredit Anwendung geben. Sie müssen innerhalb von 60 Tagen nach Mitteilung bitten. Eine der häufigsten Antworten ist, dass ein Möchtegern Karteninhaber Kredit-Score zu niedrig ist.

Alle Informationen über Sie, die Kartenherausgeber auswerten, ist Ihre Kredit-Score die wichtigste. Diese dreistellige Nummer, die von 300 (schlimmsten) bis 850 (am besten) reicht, stellt dar, wie verantwortungsvoll Sie mit geliehenem Geld in der Vergangenheit gewesen sind. Je höher Ihre Punktzahl, die mehr kreditwürdig du bist.

Considering Lincoln Square apartment

Hi,
I'm considering moving to Lincoln Square - to Eastwood between Western and Lincoln specifically. My hesitation is that the apartment is on the ground floor. Wondering if those of you who live in the area think I should be concerned about security or street noise?
Thanks!

  • I love this neighborhood, it’s my favorite in the city and I’ve been very happy here for many years. It’s very safe. However…

    I love this neighborhood, it’s my favorite in the city and I’ve been very happy here for many years. It’s very safe. However…
    You’ll be right next to the Western Brown Line stop. That means a lot of extra people, cars and so on. You’ll also have to deal with Germanfest and other events in/near the square. My good friend lives on that block, and has had no problems aside from having to deal with bar and festival crowd noise. He's easygoing, and it doesn't bother him at all. He’s on the 2nd floor though.
    It’s a higher risk area for break-ins, made a little more acute by being garden-level. But that’s nothing to be alarmed about if you make sure the apartment is secure. Make sure the doors are solid with locks that work. All of you windows need to be secure - if they’re bare glass without bars, there is no way I’d live there.

    Lastly, because it's garden level, ask the landlord and/or neighbors in the building if there are any flooding issues. It's awful to get a great new garden level apartment and find out a few months in that all your things are going to get wet on a regular basis.

    Overall, it’s an excellent neighborhood and is easily one of the safest in the city.

  • The area is generally safe. Yes a few not so great things have happen but it's wayyyy better than other neighborhoods. And I honestly think some areas are better than others. For phill after I attended Amundsen high school, I learned that the area your nephew lived in was not the best part of Lincoln square, due to gang activity. With that being said I wouldn't live past Lawrence or western. Welcome to the neighborhood!
