Lost Dog Reward Please help me Reward!

My dog was last seen at Jewel South Loop Parking lot Roosevelt & Walbash She is 3 years old Parti Yorkie (Rare) Black & White 6-7 lbs. I pray for her safe return. If you see or have seen here please post or give me suggestions on how to get her back. I'm lost without her!

  • OMG! So glad she was found!! Yay! 😃🐶

  • That particular shelter is a death trap I'm afraid to say. Had a very bad experience there. Shelters that I know that could use the help is Famous Fidos, there's one for pit bulls that pick up from 27th and western as well. I hope you have picked her up ASAP before she gets sent away. P.s. Don't bother calling there as they don't answer the phones. Also volunteers there are ALOT nicer than the people who get paid to work there.

Question about a field in South Grant Park

See the photo attached for the area I'm referencing. Does anyone know when that fairly large field will be back open? This is on the west side of the tracks near 11th street pedestrian bridge. It's been fenced off since the beginning of the year, if I recall correctly.

  • You're talking about two different areas. The new skate park is on Roosevelt. I don't know what's going on with the area you highlighted on Michigan.

  • Hope so. That'd make more sense.

Explosions

There have been repeated loud explosions during the day today. I called 311. They said they had several calls about it but knew nothing. I was transferred to 911 who also knew nothing. I was then transferred to fire dept and was told there was a "festival going on at Mercy Hospital" and that was the source of the explosions.

Will burns and Rahm at jones college prep

I have never been as infuriated as I was today when alderman Fioretti was excluded from the jones festivities. Will burns had nothing to do with jones. Fioretti worked tirelessly with all parties to make Jones what it is today, now Rahm and burns have excluded him and taking credit. Their behavior is disgraceful and disrespectful. Contact them and express your sentiments.

  • For those of you in the second ward who will become part of the third or fourth ward... all I can say is "Welcome to the Terror Dome"!!!

  • NAFSBUC Walking my Fitbit and Flatcoat 10k steps/day

    Hey, the old 25th kinda sux rocks too since Solis, who had some clout and lived inTri-Taylor has gone to Chinatown and now Irwin gets ghetto to University and the guy who has strip parties in the hood for his buddies is sure to win...groan. Some folks are hoping Fioretti decides to run in this district. So bleeped up!
