Energy solicitors?

A couple of young men in blazers and ties came to my door this afternoon to discuss "clean energy" in the city. (I did not have time to speak with them/get details.) They were quite pushy, saying they would return later, even though I said I was not interested.

Anyone else have this happen? Is this a legit organization?

Lost Silver Movado watch

On Monday night I lost my silver Movado watch it has a black face. It belonged to my dad who passed away. I am offering $500 reward if found. I last had it all Polk st bar on Monday night. Thank you

  • Hi Michael, I'm a reporter from DNAinfo, a new Chicago neighborhood news site. I've been following your posts about the watch and would really like to speak to you over the phone if you have some time this week. My email is criley@dnainfo.com...please reach out if you have a moment, as I feel this story is one that should be told.

  • Hi Michael, I actually might have a lead on your watch. Didn't know if you'd already recovered it. My name is Chloe Riley, I'm a reporter with DNAinfo.com in Chicago. Let me know if you'd have a few minutes to talk, my cell is 773.248.0141, email: criley@dnainfo.com.

Looking for home rental or apartment in Chicagoland area.

I'm moving back to chicago because my kid tested into the gifted program with CPS. I was done with chicago winters but I don't want to pass up an educational opportunity for my children. I'm a single mom with two children. My price range is $1000 - $1100 monthly.

  • PeacockFeathers Douglas Diva

    I will be emailing you soon, Kim.

    I'm an agent also however, I find the amount of rentals on the MLS sparse. I recommend you check out www.padmapper.com for rentals. You can search many different ways and it has good content.

    As a landlord when I have vacancies I put them on Padmapper and the MLS and get more leads from Padmapper. The MLS is a great tool for buying/selling but many people don't want to pay an agent to rent their place out.
