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.

  • L

    I'm sorry this happened to you. What day and time?

  • Today, 11/23 at about 10:10pm. Police arrived in about 5 minutes.

  • There is a lot of theft happening in the area, plus holdups. It's the Holidays and the bad people come out in droves. Their excuse is to get Christmas money.

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?

    It stores nicely over winter if you are going to garden again, but I'd suggest giving it away on Craiglist.

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

According to the latest flyers from Cushman &Wakefield, Panera Bread is no longer coming to Ashland and School and they are re-releasing it to market. Vitamin Shoppe is a go, and Target is no longer pictured on the map.

  • 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.

    Pretty limited view? We push for divestment where I work, and LaSalle bank was where I had my first bank account and Cash Station card.

    Isn't "The Shift" the name of the free co-working space first launched at Bezazian library is Uptown? Why would a for-profit business co-opt the name of something developed for the public good?

    Hi Jill W. thanks for asking! However, we are in no way affiliated or connected with The Bezazian Library (although we just looked up they're programs and you're right, they're great and definitely a public good!). Thanks for thinking of us though!

    If you're interested in the origin of our name, it refers to the 4-hour time blocks called "Shifts" that we offer to use our space. We came up with it as a fun play on the term "work shifts." Hope that helps to answer your question. Feel free to drop by anytime for a tour of our space, we're always excited to meet our neighbors!

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!
