Shooting

1470 block of West Ohio Street at 730pm yesterday there was a silver/ gray Toyota 4Runner who fired about 5-6 rounds. I'm not sure who they were shooting at. Cops were called but I don't know what the outcome was. It's not the first time that a shooting took place in the area, but it's scary that it seems to be happening earlier in the evenings. So please be careful out there.

  • My sister and I live just a couple of houses down and we heard the gunshots too. We ran to the window, but we didn't see or hear anything else. We didn't see any cops come by either. I feel pretty safe in the neighborhood, but that does scare me a little bit, especially if people are reporting stray bullets. Glad to hear none of the neighbors were out or hurt.

  • ANacho Lived in neighborhood for over 40yrs!

    I was all concerned about out house being hit, I didnt even notice until last night that my car was also hit. I now have a bullet hole in the side panel in the front of my brand new car.

Mail Only Delivering Every Other Day

I live in 60622, 2400 block of W Haddon. Is anyone else in the area noticing a pattern where mail is only being delivered every other day or so?

  • @Modern Times I used to live over by Grand and Hoyne, and I had that same experience with "undeliverable" mail.

  • Kym

    I contacted a representative from Mike Quigley's office about the post office in 60622 and some missing packages. Since the PO is a federal thing, they are the ones to handle it. Melanie from his office was super nice and very helpful and damned if I didn't get a phone...

    I contacted a representative from Mike Quigley's office about the post office in 60622 and some missing packages. Since the PO is a federal thing, they are the ones to handle it. Melanie from his office was super nice and very helpful and damned if I didn't get a phone call several times from the "fine" people at the post office, explaining that they delivered it. (Whatever, don't believe them and don't expect to get my packages but do like to rat them out and have someone up top know they suck). Here is the contact for Rep. Quigley's office that made stuff happen. I encourage one and all to call them and make your own complaints:
    Melanie Thompson
    Congressional Aide
    Congressman Mike Quigley

kids running the streets

Was wondering if anyone had advice. Live by Oakley and Maypole. Last night there were about twenty to thirty kids in the middle of the street blocking traffic and screaming. When the cops showed up they all ran. With the exception of about 15 stragglers who wanted to give lip to the cops. I know that about 5 of the kids live in section 8 housing within two blocks of my apartment. Is there a way I can report their...

Was wondering if anyone had advice. Live by Oakley and Maypole. Last night there were about twenty to thirty kids in the middle of the street blocking traffic and screaming. When the cops showed up they all ran. With the exception of about 15 stragglers who wanted to give lip to the cops. I know that about 5 of the kids live in section 8 housing within two blocks of my apartment. Is there a way I can report their activity anonymously to the CHA? I also have an issue with the amount of trash I see on a daily basis, broken glass, discarded food and plastic bags . I pick up when I see it but maybe more trash cans at the end of the block would help curb the problem.

  • Soulquarian Loving my lake view in Hyde Park

    You can call 312.742.8500 to submit an anonymous complaint.

    Former CHA employee

  • Em Ro evening is the whole day

    Every single time you see ANYTHING, call 311 or 911.

    The # of police calls to certain areas are tracked and the more you call and report things, the more patrols will be send to the area just to drive around.

    It's so unfortunate that kids have nothing better to do.

Rash of stolen packages

Hi neighbors - I know this has been a recurring problem in our hood but it's reakky gotten out of control. Finally had to move all my deliveries to my downtown office which is a huge inconvenience. Literally the latest package lasted an hour after delivery and by the time I get home, gate wide open, no package.

At Iowa/Honore. Keep your eyes open as my guess it people are following delivery trucks around - wether fedex, ups or usps.

  • the only thing I have delivered to my home is cat litter

  • well same as well and I just want to let everyone know that I'm in the same boat. A huge inconvenience but our postal system can't be trusted to put the packages out of sight (like over a locked gate- not a big deal) and neither can the neighbors/non-neighbors. I feel like this is the time of year it starts. My package delivered on 11-21 around noon was stolen. Division/Damen area. pathetic.

Sunday Newspaper Thief - 809 N Racine

Around 7:10am this morning someone stole the Sunday Newspaper from outside our door. Does this older gentleman really value his integrity at $3.00 (the cost of a Sunday Trib). Someone typically steals the paper at least once a month. We have since installed a security camera and have a video of the incident; however, the video is not detailed enough to truly make out his face. Maybe you can make out. Here are links to the video

Cleaning Tips

Really tired of moving into places that haven't been cleaned properly and am offering up 50+ years of advice. Forget all the thousands of cleaning products and just use these: (I'm not affiliated with any of these products, I just know that if you maintain-- even a rental little cleaning issues never become big ones and when I move in it wont be so hard...)

Really tired of moving into places that haven't been cleaned properly and am offering up 50+ years of advice. Forget all the thousands of cleaning products and just use these: (I'm not affiliated with any of these products, I just know that if you maintain-- even a rental little cleaning issues never become big ones and when I move in it wont be so hard...)

Clorox Clean-up with bleach spray. Miracle product. Spray on dark corners(mold) in the shower leave overnight. Spray on darkened dust filled floorboards leave a minute and wipe away. Use lightly for every type of cleaning. The best product money can buy.

Plain old Clorex. Need to clean venetian blinds? Fill bathtub with water add bleach and soak the whole blind. Cleans to new condition in a couple of hours.

Wood surfaces-- light colored use Murphy's Wipes (not the bottled kind) dark surfaces Method's Wood Wipes.

Glass showers spray Method Daily shower spray after every shower (2.99)another miracle. For those plastic floor trays after using Method spray a while, use Mr. Clean sponge erasures and scrub away stains. After initial cleaning, you wont have to do this often.

Stainless cleaning Nano stainless spray.

Lime buildup around sinks and knobs, Durgol from sur la table. Cost $20 a bottle lasts for years--Miracle!

When moving into a place that previously had a pet--spray Siphor plus II Fat-Acting Spray (Amazon.com) around perimeter. Dries fast non toxic kills almost all bugs.

Invest in one of those $39.00 Furnace cleans sold on Amazon local.com. Totally worth it, to clean out dust buildup. As well, buy those 99cent furnace filters and change the first of every month. (If you change every month you don't need the expense ones.
