Need a vet

Does anyone know of a good vet in Lakeview?

  • McKillip Animal Hospital is great. You don't need to make an appointment, they are reasonably priced and the staff and vet techs are all great. I'm especially fond of Dr Glater, he's awesome and takes great care of my two dogs and was wonderful when I had to put my third asleep. Whenever I'm in with one of them sick he ALWAYS calls the next day to check and see how they are recovering. In fact when I've seen other vets in the practice they've called also. They're great.

  • I love family pet as well! Greatest, nicest staff. Reasonable prices, and a little bit of free parking!

Property Tax Resource

Does anyone know of a good property tax resource such as a website to walk me through it or a lawyer.

I have successfully appealed by myself in the past. But I don't know if I got back the most I could have, I don't know if I should appeal again; if I should appeal again, I don't know if a lawyer is worth it or if I should just "make stuff up" like I did last time. All I know is my mailbox gets flooded with lawyers fishing for my business and I would prefer to pay less in taxes rather than more.

Thank you!

Renovation Street Closures Kick in Around Wrigley Field

A letter sent by the Cubs to area residents noted the utility companies did not expect any major service disruptions. Fencing also will go up around the CTA Red and Purple line lots adjacent to Clark Street and Waveland Avenue to facilitate the work being done there.

Hard Candy Source?

I've recently developed a liking for hard candy. Do you know of a store that offers a good variety? I mostly shop at Jewel and Whole Foods, and they seem to concentrate on chocolates and chewy candies, with just a sampling of hard candies. Now I'm interested in branching out a bit.

  • Bernie on Roscoe Lakeview resident for 7 years

    Have you tried Windy City Treats on Broadway?

  • I totally agree! I have found some at Candiality but it is expensive.
    Your best bet might be to check out Amazon for your favorite.

Parking lot bait and switch?

Hi to my fellow Chicagoans in Lake View. Last night my family purchased parking passes online for James G. Blaine Elementary School at 1420 W. Grace for the Zac Brown concert. They were advertised for $9.00 by Parking jockey online. Realizing the bargain, we grabbed two spots immediately and printed our passes. When we arrived at the parking lot, a provider attempted to charge us $40.00 each for the spots until we threatened to call the police.

The offer was...

The offer was out of line for the area, I realize that. What I didn't like was the bait and switch tactics. Before I get upbraided for not taking public transportation, my other family members came in from Milwaukee and had to return home last night. Typically I will take public transportation to concerts at Wrigley.

    Did you report them to parking jockey?

    I wonder if some folks hijacked their parking lot? When I've parked at Blaine, I just pay there using the pay box.

Are you missing a Prius with Texas plates?

There's a silver Prius parked at the northeast corner of Lakewood and Wellington that's on the verge of being towed. It is parked too far from the curb and over the crosswalk. It has a smashed right, front fender and the inside of the car has been vandalized. It has had multiple tickets on it. In case this is your car and you've lost it, it was stolen, or whatever, you might want to move it.

Clothing Found

I found men's designer clothing in my back parking lot. It is in perfect condition. If someone can describe it and identify when they lost it (or it may have been stolen and thrown in my lot), I'd be happy to return it.

Canine Glaucoma

I have recently had to put lay my best friend to rest. He gave me the best 15 years of my life. For the last 6 years, he suffered from glaucoma, had one eye removed, but was still the happiest guy around. Making people smile every time he passed by. Before the end, I had refilled all his meds which were very expensive. I would love to pass along the unused and unopened medication to someone who is going through...

I have recently had to put lay my best friend to rest. He gave me the best 15 years of my life. For the last 6 years, he suffered from glaucoma, had one eye removed, but was still the happiest guy around. Making people smile every time he passed by. Before the end, I had refilled all his meds which were very expensive. I would love to pass along the unused and unopened medication to someone who is going through the same thing and may need some help. I know that I could donate to the shelter or even my vets office, but as one of the meds needs to be kept cold when unopened. I didn't want it to go to waste by not being stored properly.

Please do let me know if this can be of use to anyone. Would gladly meet up and pass it along!

  • I'm sorry for your loss, like many others here I've had to do this myself just a couple months ago. What a kind way to honor your best friend.

  • LindaMK Neighbor

    I had a beloved dog that died of mitral value disease and I had left over expensive heart medicine when he passed. I too donated the medicine to PAWS. They were very happy to receive it.
