Anyone need a solid car?

Still under extended warranty, with also tire warranty.
Only 13,600 miles.
VW Diesel Jetta 2010 TDI Cup Edition.
I am single owner, garage kept. pristine.
Hit me up and I'll bore you will details.

thought i post here prior to Craigslist.

  • I feel like not having an image of the actual car you're trying to sell (regardless of where you try to sell it) makes people inevitably think the seller may be disingenuous.

Still hoping to reunite this friendly little guy with his family. Found on 11/17 near Barry and Christiana.

    Sounds as if you're more interested in finding his owner than the owner is interested in finding him. That makes me sad. Maybe he found his forever home with your sister's family.

    I started doing shows there with Pancho, he wanted to sell, I brought in Tamiz, we became 50/50 partners, my other company MP productions continued to do the booking, I ran the bar and evenings Tamiz ran the kitchen and brunches, at some point we decided that it was time to "divorce" and we negotiated a buyout, unfortunately I was not able to outbid his new partner Gino Battaglia and had to bow out selling my share of the company for a very fair price, after it was official they told us to cancel or move all shows with no notice and that's what we are doing, the venue was dismantled and half the staff quit/walked out, I wish them luck.

TRIBUNE: Fate of STOP FOR PEDESTRIANS IN CROSSWALK signs

Mid-intersection street mounted sign Milwaukee at Sawyer went MIA early spring 2014. I asked Alderman Rey Colon about replacement. Answer: ~$500 cost must come from 35th Ward Aldermanic menu funds, not City/CDOT budget. So I contacted Mr. Hilkevitch since:
1. in street mounted signs STOP FOR PEDESTRIANS IN CROSSWALK are visual cue that enhances Pedestrian Safety. Milwaukee Ave location has 25,000 vehicles/day AND is heavily used by pedestrians day & evening on City designated PEDESTRIAN ORIENTED STREET in heart of vibrant Logan Square business district.
2. signs are intrinsically subject to wear/damage and getting plowed over by (idiot) drivers
3. CDOT/City annual budget should anticipate replacement cost for these signs, like replacement of Stop, Tow Zone, No Parking etc which come from City budget, not Alderman ward menu funds
4. Red Light and Schools/Parks cameras bring in ~$100,000,000 per yr. It's not Mayor Emanuel slush fund to plug police overtime etc. Public Safety & real leadership means: take some of that $ and pay to replace damaged signs STOP FOR PEDESTRIANS IN CROSSWALK as needed.

The DUI KING of City Council, Alderman Rey Colon offered this comment in Tribune: "These signs are very popular with constituents who request them often," Colon said. But he said the average life of the signs "is like freshly cut flowers that wither and die."

Alderman: it's time for your political career to do the same.

  • I think those little buggers should grow by three feet, glow like a sci-fi show, and be made of METAL. That would teach people real fast to pay attention and stop running over the little neon man!

  • I dunno...Many people who hit those signs don't take care of their cars anyway, so adding some scratches to go with the speed holes and fart cans (mufflers) won't matter to them...

Recommend Company to do Network and A/V Wiring for New Home?

We are building a new home in Logan Square, and need some expertise on the Network, Audio/Visual wiring design of the house.

Our electrician says he can run the cables any way we'd like, but we were looking for someone who can help with the design, picking the correct materials and making sure the right work is done.

Any recommendations?

Hey neighbors. I've recently become aware of several important pieces of mail that never got delivered to us and am trying to figure out the best way to address this and with whom (ie, call the post-office on California, track down my mail carrier, call the national branch??). After being in our location for 2 years, we've suddenly had mail returned to a couple of different senders with notices like, "address unknown," or they'll say they attempted 3 times, even though there was no notice and I was home each of the dates listed on the "attempt form." I have verified that the address was correct on the letters/packages that were returned. We still continue to get all our junk mail and ComEd bills as well as other peoples' mail, but now we're missing stuff. Any suggestions or input would be much appreciated!

    Julie, I suggest that -- unless the mis-delivered mail you receive is within a house or two of being correct -- you take it back to the Clemente post office in person. With evidence of faulty delivery in your hand, you have much more power to complain about your own missing mail. When I did this a few years ago, it received much more attention than the simple "my mail is missing" message.

    I agree with the other posters' observations about regular versus substitute mail carriers. The performance of the latter only serves to underscore the notorious reputation of the post office.

    The quality of delivery accuracy to me has improved over the past two decades. However, my experience with neighborhood mailboxes has gone in the opposite direction. At this point, I drop all outbound mail only at the Clemente post office. Forgive me if this is a thread hijack, but I wonder how many others have been likewise trained by negative reinforcement into this habit.

    I moved from the Bucktown area and find this neighborhood to be much more friendly and neighborly. I'm told the area I'm in used to have a more problems with gang and drug activity but neighbors working together pushed that out.

    Recently of couple of thugish loiterers were just hanging out on our corner, making signs to passing cars and such. My neighbor was out there working on his car, and I joined him. We talked about the guys and stared at them. Other neighbors would pass by and we'd ask them loudly enough, 'who are these guys, you know them?', just to make it plain that we were all taking notice.

    The dudes split after about 15 minutes of this. Can't say for sure the awkwardness we created was why they left, but they haven't been back.

    i don't see much of a distinction, it's still an ad regardless of who posts it. how can you tell if the person posting is a tenant or a landlord? if you make exceptions that are easy to get around, you're left with no rule at all.

  • I'm sorry if I upset anyone. I thought since there was an option to check to post about needing a place to live I could post here. I thought it would be better on here to share with the community that we were looking for someone to take over our lease. We are not a broker or the management company. And also maybe someone on here had a friend or relative looking to move to the area.

    We have been in the neighborhood a little over 20 years and I would say this behavior comes in waves. I do recommend having a can of paint or graffiti remover yourself as it is best just to cover/remove these tags as quickly as you can. The taggers will get bored of your garage more quickly then and will choose a different target. Talk to your neighbors and work together to communicate about any tagging or suspicious activity.

    As far as worrying...I wouldn't lose any sleep over this as it is random and nothing against you personally.

He seemed distraught, and in not shire if he's posted here yet. He described Louie as a brown / tan, very large pit bull. He lives in the apartments on he corner of Altgeld and California above Mops Beauty. I didn't get a name or apartment number.

If anyone has seen Louie, feel free to message me and I'll try to find the owner.

Keep a lookout for Louie, it's cold out there!
