Thursday morning fight in east lakeview?

Did anyone hear a fight early Thursday morning around surf and sheridan? It sounded pretty ugly but by the time I tried to get to a window it was over.

Brown Elephant Alternative

Does anyone have any suggestions as to where to drop discarded clothes and "stuff"where they may do someone else some good ?

  • Unattended drop boxes have a host of problems. The clothes in them are subject to bugs and getting wet, and people try to take the clothes out of them. The drop boxes really aren't very effective.

  • Thanks neighbors for the education and suggestions! I'm going to stick with what I know and just organize myself to "zipcar" my stuff to one of the other Brown Elephants...
    Thanks again!

Anyone else hold their child back from CPS

This is a big concern of mine as my child is eligible for kindergarten this fall but I honestly feel he isn't ready emotionally or academically. I decided to hold my son back and he will start kindergarten next year at a private school. My plans are to send him there until 1st or 2nd grade. Is it possible to switch to a cps school at a later date? Any advice or recommendations?

    My husband made the previous comment. Now it's my turn :)
    Do what is best for your child. If you choose to come back to CPS you may request the grade your child is to be enrolled so long as it is not above the norm age level grade unless you have appropriate paperwork to prove they belong a year ahead. The only time that grade level placement will be a potential concern is when your child is in middle school. If your student will be 15 prior to September 1st, they will be automatically enrolled as a high school freshman. It's a bizarre concept but that's how most school systems function.
    Personally, have mixed feelings about private schools, like any school system there are good and bad. If your child needs additional support (such as a 504 or an IEP) please do yourself a favor and go to public school. CPS handles all educational support services for students with IEPs and 504s in the city and it is much, much easier as a parent to have those handled at the school your child attends with teachers and counselors who work with your child daily.

    If you're still looking outside CPS, check out Montessori schools when you're scoping out options.

Found Keys Paulina & Fletcher

Found a set of keys in front of my house near the corner of Paulina and Fletcher on 7/30/14. There's 8 keys and a car opener on a white leather wristlet. There is a special identifying key, if they are your keys you should be able to tell me what it is.

Local Business

Does anyone know what they are putting at the corner of School and Ashland? Across from the Whole Foods.

  • Strip mall w vitamin shoppe and others, I think panera backed out. Yes old bank lot.

  • They can start work at 7, but they cannot use heavy machinery or create a noise disturbance before 8. If they are being loud enough to disturb residences prior to 8, I think they are violating the noise ordinance. I have found my alderman's office to be very helpful in these situations.

It's a long walk to 6000 North

I was at the mouth of Diversey Harbor at about 2:00PM today when my bicycle chain derailed. Before I realized what had happen, a nice young man diagnosed the problem and fix the derailment for me. I probably would have figured it out, but if not, I would have to walk back to 6000 North. Thanks again!!

  • sly-3 donkey wrangler to the stars

    nice to see there's some decent folk out there. make sure you pay that forward, homie.

  • I ride the whole trail sometimes and always carry my Ventura card with me just in case I have a problem like this.

Experiences with apartment searching in early spring/late winter?

Hello Everyone!

I am looking for people who have had experiences with searching for apartments with April 1st least start dates. Our current lease ends at the end of September, but our landlord made us an offer to extend our lease to the end of March. I have tried searching the web for information regarding what the rental market looks like during that time, but haven't really found anything.

Hello Everyone!

I am looking for people who have had experiences with searching for apartments with April 1st least start dates. Our current lease ends at the end of September, but our landlord made us an offer to extend our lease to the end of March. I have tried searching the web for information regarding what the rental market looks like during that time, but haven't really found anything.

We know that the October 1st lease starting time is one of the busiest and most fast paced rental seasons, but we may not be able to invest the time in August and September that is needed to snap up a nice apartment so we are seriously considering the April start date alternative.

So I am asking if any of you have any experience with the April start date rental market. Do there tend to be a decent amount of properties available in a variety of neighborhoods? Do the prices fluctuate at all? Is it silly to think that the market at that time won't be as ideal?

Any and all information or anecdotes you could send our way would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance!

  • Thank you all for the information. It really helps a lot!

    first, I have a one-bedroom I'm renting in OIP

    if you haven't noticed, rents are CrazE high priced during those times. It's all due to demand.
    I've gotten a ton of people come by but they expect too much; free utilities, cable and parking in my garage. But I'm very picky on potential renters also.

    My house is huge (I live in the duplex upstairs) and some think they can still bring in pets (No Pets!)

    here's some pointers;
    a. are you prepared to move (first months rent + security, knowing you may not get your sec. from your current LL for 30 days)?
    b. do you want to move? you can still look, you don't have to commit - this gives you an idea on neighborhood and conveniences.
    c. what's out there (apts) that is of more interest than where you're at now?
    d. (and most important) will your credit check out?

    Happy hunting and good luck - I was a happy renter until 2010; what a great time to buy that was!

Dr. Olivia Forys

I got a letter saying that my GP, Dr. Olivia Forys, is leaving her practice with Rush. I'd really like to keep her as my doctor, but the letter didn't say where she is going (if anywhere in Chicago). If anyone has information, it would be much appreciated. I certainly hope she's doing OK.

  • robin in WRP Tired, very tired

    Her contract probably prevents her from sharing this information. I would wait a couple of months, then check HealthGrades for updated office informaion

  • Thanks, Robin!
