Blood @ Kimball and Belden?

Walked out of my apartment today and saw a puddle of soapy water on the NW corner of Kimball and Belden. There were also bloody cloths on the sidewalk, so I was assuming the soap was from cleaning up after a crime. Anyone know what happened?

Coyotes in Humboldt Park PARK

As I walked my dog (on leash and picking up after her) in the Park today, a city worker was driving around stopping to tell any dog owner he saw that they had spotted coyotes in Humboldt Park Park. It sounded as if they had been aggressive towards dogs but I don't have any facts...but I thought 'terrific' the city would send someone to do so.

  • According to this article, coyotes have established themselves in all parts of the city, including downtown, and are helping to reduce the Canadian geese population. It is estimated that there are 2000 coyotes living in the city. And they're smart, they have even learned to wait for a green light before crossing the street - something that some humans don't ;) .

    http://researchnews.osu.edu/archive/urbcoyot.htm

  • Last year I saw a coyote early in the morning while walking my dog on Logan Blvd. near Rockwell. He darted across the street and stopped in the center grassy area, looked around and darted north.

Schubert Ave. Residents - BOLO

This isn't the first time I've noticed that Schubert, from 2800-3200 is a hotbed of robberies and assaults, armed and otherwise. These 2 recent cases are a small sampling of what's been going on there over the past year.

What's going on? Where's CPD?

Ticket for expired registration - can I contest?

Thanks to the diligent parking enforcement, I received a ticket for Expired Plates or Temporary Registration (Code 0976160F). While I am guilty of not affixing the sticker, I had purchased and received the sticker a few days before the expiration month. My question is that if showing evidence of renewed registration although not on display is grounds for waiver of the $60.00 ticket. Trying to get some input before I contest via mail. Any advice or past experiences will be appreciated!

#73 bus schedule

    As an update, I emailed a bunch of different people and heard back from a few. The CTA forwarded my request to their Service Planning Department. It sounds like the CTA determines the need for service changes based on bus use during other times of day to ensure return on investment. I also heard from two representatives from Moreno's office -- one forwarded my message to the CTA and the other suggested talking to the Trust for Public Land (the 606 group) and the other aldermen along Armitage. I contacted all of them but haven't heard back.

    New bus routes on Elston and Clybourn may be difficult, though helpful. Armitage is already a bus route, so it would be a matter of extending hours, but even that costs money in a time of CTA budget cuts.

  • Thanks for doing this. However, I have never heard of the CTA, having eliminated a bus route years ago on Elston and Clybourn, of ever reinstating one. Even though Business conditions have changed for the positive on these streets the last ten years and I think it would be helpful...

    Thanks for doing this. However, I have never heard of the CTA, having eliminated a bus route years ago on Elston and Clybourn, of ever reinstating one. Even though Business conditions have changed for the positive on these streets the last ten years and I think it would be helpful to businesses on these streets to have bus service. At least the CTA should try it, and if it does not work, they could eliminate it again. As for going through your alderman, many alderman were against cancelling the Lincoln Avenue bus but it happened anyway. I think the CTA makes up it's mind, holds public hearing because it has to, and then does what it wants to anyway. For reasons unknown, why do they keep the #37 Sedgwick bus going? I have lived on the Northside for years and never used it. Those buses could be put to work on Clybourn and Elston Avenues.

Roof Deck Builder Recommendations?

We moved into our townhouse last fall, and now that winter is over we want to re-build our roof deck. There's currently a small deck (100 sq. ft) in place, but we want to replace it with one that fills the maximum allowable build-able space (approx. 400 sq. ft.). Does anybody have recommendations for a roof deck builder?

This topic has been addressed here ad nauseam, I don't think the offenders are reading Every Block- you know, pick up your dog poop! This afternoon, someone actually flagged a dog poop. I am not sure what to make of it- If you want to see this- take a look, I took a picture. (for some unknown reason, Everyblock pics are not going through)

    Want to stop people from leaving dog poop behind? Take a photo of the offender, put it on fliers and post them all over the neighborhood. While it is an action, a flag doesn't connect the offender to the offending act. I love my neighborhood but I am sick and tired of having to tightrope down the sidewalk (and now, the curb!) to avoid dog feces. It was a nicer place to live before Logan Square got hot and started attracting lazy and inconsiderate dog owners.

Routine Traffic Stop Ended In A Police Car Chase.

Police stopped a vehicle in front of the logan square blue line, when they asked the driver to step out (Police already had his on his gun), the driver took off. He sped down Milwaukee ave and dangerously turned into the boulevard where he crashed against a parked car in front of NewWave and ended hitting a pole. They immediately handcuffed him, and gave him the medical attention he needed before they drove away.

I overheard someone say it was a stolen vehicle.

Very scary, Very real.

  • Saw all the police cars, ambulances, and the wreckage tonight and wondered what had happened but could tell from looking that it was some kind of a car chase gone awry. Thanks Stefania

  • Jerry Cargill Photographer, Teacher, Live on Milwaukee Ave.

    The car thief didn't have run. He could've taken his punishment like a man. Because he ran, he made things worse for himself, and the owners of the vehicle (us), he destroyed Fortunately no officer, pedestrian, or driver was killed, otherwise he would've been charged with murder.

I am looking for a non-smoking, peace loving, cat friendly neat individual to rent a beautiful room in an amazing Arts & Crafts building in the Fullerton and Western area; tree lined street, easy parking, tons of public trans, very safe neighborhood.

The 18X22 room is in the front of the apartment. It is very private, almost like having your own studio apartment. There is a faux fireplace, stained glass windows, ceiling fan, and the front of room is all windows, so lots of light. The apartment is on the second floor so it feels like you are in the trees. The room is large enough for sitting area, office, and bedroom area. Built-in book shelves. Beautiful!

The kitchen is huge and modernized, dish washer, walk in pantry, kitchen is furnished. The bathroom is also huge and very nice, clean, subway tiles, ceiling fan. The coin laundry is in basement. There is some storage available. OK for bike in basement, real safe. 3 units in the building, so the building is quiet. I have 2 cats. No more pets are allowed.

$650.00 per month everything included (rent, utilities, cleaning supplies etc. and housekeeping.) Phone & internet not included. $650.00 security deposit and references required. Apartment available May 1st (preferred) but could be as early as April 15th or as late as June 1st as well.

    Joe, it was written by a self-identified conservative, who writes for a conservative economic policy group. He has an agenda he is pushing and this article isn't saying anything new. It confirms people's beliefs who already think this way. I'm waiting for the hard evidence, not conjecture and fear. I happen to think that a rise in minimum wage is a good thing all around. There may be bad unintended consequences, but I really don't understand the conservative perspective not on paying people better...other than the wealthy keep on getting wealthier.

    I am trying to keep this to a logical argument, but you are putting little faith in people and your 20 or $100 argument is a little silly. Nobody is taking your $15 dollars/ hour. People earning on a more equal scale would be better for the middle class that you are concerned about. I thought conservative were all about letting people do what they want with their money? You are saying that $15 is bad because people won't save it or spend it the way that you think they should.

    Anyway, I'm sorry, I don't buy into fear politics and although I wholeheartedly disagree with your argument, I respect your opinion. Time will tell though.
