Neighborhood arsonist is sure to appreciate the Christmas trees...

I see that once again some group has once again attached Christmas trees to the lightpoles around Lakeview. When they did it last year, it seemed like a boneheaded waste of money, since most were dead by early to mid-December. But now that we have a serial arsonist roaming Lakeview? You've got to be kidding me. What rocket scientist thought this was a good idea? I wonder how many will be used as kindling between now and January.

  • Audubon parent north center resident

    They are so awkward looking in my opinion. They look like discarded Xmas trees- just waiting to be peed on by passing dogs.

  • Last year, nearly 600 of the trees went unclaimed during the giveaway just before Christmas. This seems like a spiteful move by the merchants association.

    http://chicagoist.com/2013/12/24/lakeview_decorating_decision_ends_i.php

    "Instead of making the season brighter, Central Lakeview Merchants just made it feel like a bummer."

    On another front, they're chopping down 650 trees every year for this? How wasteful.

Attempted break in - laundry room

Someone smashed the glass of our building's basement around 1300 W Barry. We called 911 and when the police arrived, they stated that someone may have tried to get to the laundry machine to steal the money. People watch out.

  • Sometimes it doesn't have to be a break-in situation.
    When I had a condo in a Near North high-rise there was a rape in the laundry room in that the rapist was only staying with someone in the building and he was doing his laundry.
    While there he met a resident who was doing her wash, too, and she assumed that he was a fellow owner and let her guard down. Then he made his move.

  • @Becky - that's terrifying. Not 10 minutes before we heard the noise, I walked by that window to get food from a delivery driver.

Cinnamon Ice Cream

I fully admit this is a ridiculous question. Does anyone know of a place that sells cinnamon ice cream (store, shop, any place)? I've tried Mariano's and Jewel. I used to live in MN and during the holidays Kemp's would have it at the local grocers. I've heard that Blue Bunny also has it, but I haven't seen it at Jewel. (This is my mom's favorite and she is old and not well, so I'd like to find it before Thanksgiving.)

  • Menchie's Frozen Yogurt at River Point Shopping Center (Clybourn) has Cinnabon flavor and I am almost positive you can take it home by the pint. It's killer.

  • Whole Foods in Lincoln Park has a gourmet brand in pints Hope Mom feels better soon!

Pens and pencil donation

I am an office supply hoarder. It doesn't help that my office supplier give us free samples of items. I have a shoebox of pens and pencils that I need to get rid of - does anyone know where I can donate these?

    My girlfriend is a 3rd grade teacher and is always looking for donations for their art projects.... Let me know and I can pick them up... I'm in Roscoe Village. Addison and Damen.

    I'm assuming Burley will take them. Arts of Life a nonprofit that works with adults with developmental disabilities would be another choice.

Dirt disposal

Any idea how to get rid of old dirt from container gardens? Looks like the yard waste disposal doesn't include soil. I have 20-30 gallons of potting soil used with vegetables for one season. Thoughts on where I can put this?

  • Can you spread it over your lawn or parkway?

  • Kathleen 12 year Wrigleyville resident

    I agree with above! I only rotate my soil every three years. I don't even cover my containers in the winter and always have beautiful flowers in the spring.

    Thanks for your prompt reply. However, it seems unoriginal (and uninspired) to assume the name of a pre-existing venture. Use of the public library is gratis. Doesn't mean everything there is up for grabs.

Panera Bread at Ashland and School Falls Through; Target Development Not Happening

  • Carter, that's a pretty limited view. The stockholders in both of those companies are all over the country, all over the world. If you have a 401(k) with mutual funds, YOU probably own some stock in both companies.

Found Cat: Grey & White

For the past 4 days there has been a grey & white cat hanging around my house near Seminary & Eddy. He/She seems like an indoor cat, looks very soft & clean. I've tried a few times to get it to come to me, but have not had any luck. Thought it would be a good idea to post in case someone is looking for her. If I'm able to bring her inside, I will take her to PAWS.

  • Thanks for posting and trying to help his kitty. You can also post on Lost Cats Illinois via Facebook, a picture would help too. Poor thing is probably hungry and freezing out there. If you're able to get her/him inside you could also try taking her to a local vet to scan for a microchip.

  • Thanks for posting. If it wouldn't be too much hassle you might try to lure the cat with some wet food (very cheap), and then take her/him to get checked for a microchip. I'm sure he/she is just scared and has a home somewhere!

There will be a referendum about the planned CTA “Flyover” on the Nov. 4 Election Ballot in the #20, 36 & 38 precincts of the 44th ward. Vote NO to protect Central Lakeview!

The Referendum: Has the CTA sufficiently justified the $320 million proposed Brown Line Flyover project and its impact on local homes and businesses?

Vote NO to insist the CTA let the community know what they plan before it’s too late to stop them.

The CTA Belmont El ‘flyover’ will waste $320 million++. Save Central Lakeview, a thriving restaurant, shopping, business district, from being ruined by the unnecessary Brown Line ‘flyover.’ Don’t let them waste your money, ruin your neighborhood.

The flyover will swing wide over two blocks of Clark Street, turning a large chunk
of this essential street into an under-El wasteland. Many commercial buildings and homes will be destroyed. Those still standing will be left facing under-El emptiness and an overhead train.

The CTA ‘findings’ are false, their drawings intentionally misleading.
Plans have NOT been finalized; please speak up for Lakeview before it’s too late.

  • The water, like the metal of the elevated structure, was likely quite cold and the tracks were getting hit with spray driven by the wind. Most of the heat from the fire rises upward, without traveling laterally, and given the extreme cold that morning it likely wasn't close enough to heat up the elevated. Further the firemen would have continued to douse the building long after obvious visible signs of fire were extinguished (in order to prevent any smoldering embers from reigniting).

  • Thanks, Hank, I hadn't checked the news, only what I saw out the window from the train.

A two bedroom (also, living room, dining room, large kitchen) on the first floor of a vintage 3-flat in Graceland West (near Clark/Montrose) on a family-friendly street. One bedroom can easily fit a Queen bed, but the other is smaller, so a full or twin would fit best there, or good for an office space. Rent $1,250.00, tenant pays own heat, light, and gas. Gas fire place, enclosed back porch, laundry and storage in basement, back yard which includes garden space. Pets accepted (including dogs and cats). On-street parking (although a garage space for rent only when one becomes available). Near transportation and convenience stores. If interested, call Lou at 1-847-833-6308
