Missing Wedding Band

Hi All! I know this is a long shot, but after seeing how upset my husband is, I thought I would try. My husband lost his wedding band in the last few days and because he's a cyclist there is a chance it may have fallen off in the street. It is an unusual band that we got in Peru (where we were married by a Shaman!) and is silver with a condor (bird), puma (cat) and snake on the band. It's VERY important to us and obviously can't be replaced very easily. If you have seen it, please let me know! Thanks!

  • What other sources would you check..police station? Craig's List? Pawn shops? I don't know...but 'feels' like you will find it...Good Luck!

Good morning everyone, I need your help in finding a PCP in Chicago. I've lived in Chicago for 7 years and haven't settled in with a Doctor yet. The new year is coming and I want to start it with a physical. Please send me your recommendations.

Ronny's Bar Project/Golden Teardrops Happening?

Anyone in the know know what happened or is going to happen with the Ronny's bar conversion that was planned by some of the Longman and Eagle/Parsons folks? They were going to totally rehab Ronny's bar. I see they initially applied for permits back in June and July...as referenced below...but there seems to have been no activity since. I'm curious if they're still going to move ahead. It would be nice to have that eyesore renovated.

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -
Police are investigating after they say a woman was attacked and robbed in the city's Logan Square neighborhood.

Police say the brutal attack happened early Wednesday morning in the 2700 block of North Whipple Street.

The woman was walking down the street just after 8 a.m. when she was reportedly grabbed from behind and dragged into a gangway, according to a release from the Chicago Police Department. The man reportedly beat the woman over the head with a gun and demanded money.

According to the release, when the victim told the assailant she did not have any money, he tried to sexually assault her.

The victim described the suspect as a Hispanic man in his mid to late 20's, standing about 5'5 to 5'7 and weighing 175 to 200 pounds. The man was described as having black hair and stubble on face. He was last seen wearing a black and white knit stocking cap, a blue button-front hooded jacket with grey sleeves, and blue jeans.

Anyone with information on the attack is asked to contact Are North Police officers at (312) 744-8200.

Parson's new addition

Just thought some might like to see the addition at Parson's. To allow more seating in the winter.

  • If you disagree with someone who owns a percentage of Parson's...more power to you dining someplace else. Perhaps you could lobby the Longman folks to do business with someone else on future projects if it's important to you. They do great work.

  • And there are plenty of other posts about Fishman...but thought this was an interesting read:

    I'm not going to say that anyone comes to your door IS a scammer or is anything less than honest, but I can say that there is NO advantage I've ever seen or heard of from signing up with them.

    As you likely know, you can elect who your electricity supply is purchased through. Check out this website (scroll down a bit to get to the good stuff, lot of junk at the top of the page):

    http://www.citizensutilityboard.org/ciElectric_cubfacts_alternativesuppliers.html

    It lists all the providers, their costs, and summary contract terms.

    Note there are several that are BETTER than what the City has "negotiated" for us- in my case, the huge $~23 fee for the privilege of having the city's provider outweighs and sinks the marginally cheaper per-KWH cost.

    Although everyone's tolerance varies, there are plenty of no-contract and reasonable rate providers. All that said, your friends from Entrust aren't on that list (unless I missed them?) so you can draw your own conclusion from that...

Morning, noon and night this dog barks and I think its been going on for over a year now. Honestly don't think or cant even fathom that I am the only one tired of this.

I have been doing research online and I thought there was a Barking Dog Noise Ordinance, or some sort of Dog Barking nuisance law for Cook County/Chicago but I can not locate it?
I don't want to call animal control, but fear that Its my only option - plus after my research, is recommended.
Calling 311 or 911 isn't going to solve the problem. Asking the owner nicely to control the dogs barking will be taken care of first, I just want to make sure if things keep going south, I have the correct recourse.

    I know this is an old post, but I have a neighbor with a pair of dogs that do not stop barking late into the night. Tonight I called the police and asked what they could do stop this noise? They replied, nothing. I asked why couldn't ticket them in accordance to the ordinance? They both looked at me like I was crazy and said there was no such ordinance. When I tried to explain, they said we'll look into it...yeah right! So what good are all of these ordinances, if the police won't abide to them because they don't even know they exist? BTW...it was a 24th district squad.

    Call and ask for a supervisor to come out, if the regular patrol officers don't seem interested in a noise complaint.

Let's Get our Video Cameras Connected to CPD District/Cental Command

Being the IT Dept and administrator to the cameras that protect our Condo association since 2009, I have seen firsthand the power this tool has to solve crime. We've been subpoenaed twice and have produced useful video evidence for another dozen or so incidents over the last 5 years that all have helped make this community stronger. High ranking CPD Chief McNaughton has already successfully launched a pilot program in his previous position in Lawndale and we're very close to the reality where hiding from the law is no longer an option.

  • Gil Jimenez Private Investigator; IL concealed carry trainer

    Video cameras CAN be a valuable addition to one's security plan.

    Video cameras CAN be a valuable addition to one's security plan.

    But there is absolutely no point to connecting 10,000 20,000, 30,000 private security cameras to CPD. For CPD to respond based on one of the video feeds, personnel would have to SEE the ONE feed and recognize what was occurring. How can anyone monitor the thousands of streaming images in real time? It is just not possible.

    I know we are hoping for a rapid - near instantaneous - police response as a crime is occurring, but we have to be realistic.

    BUT what is possible is for private individuals and businesses to install good quality cams and a recording system that does not overwrite itself in less that 2-4 weeks. Once the person becomes aware that a crime has occurred, notify CPD that your video recording might be of assistance in the investigation.

    And then, make the recordings immediately available to detectives.

    BTW, to be of maximum value, the cams should NOT be mounted so high that the only image they record is the top of a suspect's head/hoodie. They need to record facial images, so experiment with cam placement. And cams need light, perhaps infrared.

    Talk to security cam experts. I have a colleague who specializes in security cam systems. (The newest ones let you see what's happening IRT on your smart phone.) Email me if you want his contact information. There is nothing in it for me other than to get you helpful information.

    PR is 100% correct about admissibility. Tampering allegations are just desperate squeaks from defense attorneys. Forensic examination can prove that no tampering occurred.

  • I am not giving CPD access to my security cams. If they ask some footage pertaining to a specific incident maybe. Unfettered access to my security cams will never happen. Don't give away your liberties so easily.

Another Package Theft

At 2pm today a package was stolen from my front porch near Armitage and Sawyer.
I was able to get a look at the theives from behind as they walked out of the alley and onto Armitage Ave near Kedzie, and two women witnessed the theft.

They are wearing all black, head to toe. One man was black and the second hispanic, both about 5'6- 5'8.

UPS claims they left the package with someone, but they clearly did not.
BE CAREFUL and have packages sent somewhere else, especially for the holiday season.

    Liz, thank you for trying. I still think the dog excrement in the package trick would be a nice lesson to teach the thieves.

Yet another package stolen

Hi all,

Just wanted to give a heads up, had a package stolen from my porch on the 3200 block of W. McLean Ave. FedEx tracking number states "left on porch" at 11:26 am. I got the mail at noon, nothing there.

We generally request packages to have signature on delivery, however this was a gift sent from my in-laws (actually the last package they shipped went missing as well). I work from home, doorbell never rang.

I filed a police report, had FedEx run a "trace", etc.

If you happen to see this fancy ottoman hanging out in a nearby alley give me a shout I guess!

They are in the middle of a Kickstarter campaign to open their first interactive exhibit as early as Spring 2015: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/foodseum/chicagos-food-museum

The location has not been decided, but I immediately thought Logan Square would be the perfect location, with all the new restaurant activity, fantastic farmer's market, and plans for a future rare-fruit orchard.

After pledging my support, I emailed my thoughts to their executive director, Kyle Joseph, who personally wrote me back to thank me. He said that they are "big fans" of LS and they have been keeping an eye out there, and agreed that LS would be a great fit. He encouraged me to pass along the word in the neighborhood and said he would be happy to speak to fellow residents and supporters.

If you like this idea, please pass it along, donate to the campaign, and email the museum founders and organizers that you would love for Foodseum to come to Logan Square!

  • LD

    Agreed, I have nothing against the idea of the museum (I'd def visit out of curiosity), I just wouldn't invest in it as I am doubtful of its sustenance. Ditto for the juice bar (if the profit margins actually float the juice bar for a while, it will close as soon as the craze dies down, vitamixes get cheaper, or another, less expensive juice bar opens), although I think there's a big difference b/t restaurant/retail and hospitality/entertainment and not sure the 2 are comparable.

Anyway, they have a wonderful mission that these services should be available to everyone, so they work on a sliding scale.

This week-end there was a huge hawk 'posing' on the ground while someone not quite close took phone pictures. It appeared to be @ 2' tall and eventually flew up in a near by tree and posed some more. (I haven't seen any pigeons in that area lately either.)

As 'The Miss' and I went on our walk, we saw two pretty ladies walking arm-in-arm. I think they are sisters. One has a smile that could melt the snow; the other is a special needs adult who I do not believe can speak. I always say 'Hello' and the special needs lady released her companion's hand to give me a hug...a nice big hug.

Then she started to cry. Large tears. I said "Please don't be sad" and her companion said "Oh, she cries when she is happy." I said 'Well, then just keep hugging and I'm glad you are happy'.

If you see them in the park, please do say 'Hello' (Hugs are optional...)

  • I bet you saw a Coopers Hawk. One flew into our backyard a few years back so I did a little research to identify the species. It might have been 2 ft. but in a little Chicago backyard, it looked like a giant Condor.

  • I saw a hawk that fits the description in my yard a few days ago.

  • i have seen that hawk a few times… it really looks like massive compared to the other birds around there...and I am pretty sure I have seen what is left of the rabbits/pigeons it destroys… looks like a small explosion of feathers & fur in the middle of the field, with nothing else around…

    the hawk i saw had quite a bit of white on it, so the coopers hawk looks to be it

    I went to the business meeting about the Mega Mall redevelopment, and nothing is written in stone, but the proposal was for: a 40,000 sq ft supermarket at the Sacramento end of Milwaukee with two stories of parking above and a two store gym over that. The rest of the block with be residential (approx 200 rental units) with retail on the first floor. It will appear to be 5-6 separate building from the outside with some set backs. There will be a new traffic light in the middle of the block for cars to turn into the parking lot. Truck traffic in the back. 20 ft sidewalks in front. 10% affordable housing and they said no TIF funds would be use (I would love to see that). The buildings will vary for approx. 7 to 9 stories. Those were the features I found most interesting but there was more.
    That was the proposal. Call Alderman Waguespack or wait for the public meetings that are coming.

  • That public meeting should be interesting! Logan Square seems set on no buildings over 4 or 5 stories....with 6 really pushing it.
