Lost dog near Altgeld and California named "Louie"

Around 6.30am when I was out walking my dog a neighbor was calling for his dog, Louie (Louis?).

He seemed distraught, and in not shire if he's posted here yet. He described Louie as a brown / tan, very large pit bull. He lives in the apartments on he corner of Altgeld and California above Mops Beauty. I didn't get a name or apartment number.

If anyone has seen Louie, feel free to message me and I'll try to find the owner.

Keep a lookout for Louie, it's cold out there!

  • If you find the owner, tell him to post flyers all over the area right away-it can be very effective. Thanks for helping out.

Found dog

This little guy was found near Christiana and Barry today. He is microchipped but it's not registered. Does anyone recognize him?

  • Ana M Rosario neighbor

    Hope you find owners. If not, what are your plans for the dog, he's a real cutie. I would consider taking him in.

  • We're still trying to find the owner but the cute little guy is being well cared for.

Graffiti- should I be worried?

Our block (2500 palmer) is relatively quiet from what I can tell. Found this beauty on my garage today, already submitted report for removal and intend on working on removing it myself later today. Long message, anyone know what it means or should I be extra worried? Anyone know of recent activity in the area?
Thanks!

About those EB Daily Digest Crime Reports...

Sometimes the crime listed is not readily understood from the description. The link below is to the Illinois State Police Uniform Crime Reporting Offense Codes. You can get the crime from the EB Daily Digest, then refer to the Codes for the applicable IL statute, then just Google the statute number found under ILCS Reference.

E.G., Deceptive Practice: Unauthorized Videotaping, 720-5/26-4.

Offense Codes: https://www.isp.state.il.us/docs/6-260.pdf

(The CPD CLEARMAP pages also attempt to define the crimes, but not nearly as well: http://gis.chicagopolice.org/clearmap/crime_types.html .)

Need HVAC

Greetings fellow neighbors-

Need of your expertise/advise on this matter. My furnace's circulating water pump is making a loud noise when starting and the noise continues while operational. Can anyone recommend a solution and/or reasonable HVAC technician?

Thank you, all.

  • @Morgan-- Love radiators. We kept ours, too, and did SpacePak for air conditioning. It is expensive, but there is no way that we wanted to switch to forced air. Rough estimate is ~$12,000 for a 1600 sf floor.

  • i am an hvac tech in chicago 25 years exp. the noise from your pump if it is a series 100 B&G is from the spring coupler between the motor and impeller housing. it is a reasonable repair. u can reach me at 773 988 2093 if u need assitance

Need to rent or borrow a table

Hi there - I'm hosting t-giving for more people than I have table space for. I think I'll need one more table, ideally a folding, adjustable-height table that is as close to 6' long and 3' wide (seems most folding ones are no wider than 30"). Anybody know of a place to rent one table from? I could probably buy one for the same cost but don't have anywhere to store it afterward.

  • linda's flower shop on armitage at milwaukee rents folding tables and chairs for cheap

  • Loulu Me

    FYI Card and Party Warehouse (Belmont just west of Pulaski) rents chairs and tables, and has lots of other great stuff for sale. When they had just a couple of the bags I wanted for shower favors and I needed far more, they ordered them right up for me no problem. Shopping local, not corporate is something to think about for your future needs this store meets.

Looking for new window blinds

$1500 / 3br - Sublet Logan Square Apt (Palmer and Shakespeare)

Urgent need to sublet our Apartment. My Husband and I just bought a house and are in need to sublet let our awesome Logan Square Apartment. 3 bedroom and 1 bath Great location right across from Palmer Park and walking distance to California Blue Line. Please checkout our craigslist ad.
http://chicago.craigslist.org/wcl/sub/4759490424.html

  • Ouch, I guess I have to eat my own words. Being misled is not cool.

    NFT, I still stand by that if it's just a neighbor looking for a sublet it's not a solicitation. I think the rules are for landlords trying to rent out their own apartments.

  • NFT LS landlord and resident

    i don't see much of a distinction, it's still an ad regardless of who posts it. how can you tell if the person posting is a tenant or a landlord? if you make exceptions that are easy to get around, you're left with no rule at all.

Car vandalism

Keep your eyes on the streets. My car was vandalized while I was away on vacation. 2 passenger side wheels taken and the car put up on cinder blocks
Altgeld at Richmond. Nothing taken or other damage to the car that I know of.

  • It's so hard to get over the helpless and violated feeling when someone steals a part off your car. It's such an expensive thing to fix and most people have no choice but to use street parking and leave their car vulnerable. Myself included. I had my catalytic converter stolen at Belden and Kedzie just a month ago. Some people really suck.

  • the problem with the 3G now and even the 4 is that they cannot handle the new iphone software, so I've heard, which of course is just another way that apple inadvertently forces customers to get the newest model when they don't need it otherwise. correct me if I'm wrong, Lanny

  • Lanny Grilly Own Logan Square Studio (performances & recording)

    The 3Gs was a huge upgrade from the 3g & it runs the very stable i06. Apple made this phone for 3 years, and it still is considered the best phone Apple made. It doesn't have all the bells & whistles that the newer iphones have, but it is still the most stable & sturdy of them all.

Transit Oriented Development, Milwaukee/California Community Feedback

There was another thread that I started that got a little long. Thought I'd start a fresh one to house thoughts on the idea of TOD near the California El station, as the developer goes back to the drawing board to work on a revised, scaled-back plan. Here's some recent feedback from the group "Save Our Boulevards" and a link to follow offering a different view.

  • 2221 N. Milwaukee got his feedback from the GGNA:

    The GGNA Zoning and Planning Committee (ZAPC) and neighbors who live near 2211 N. Milwaukee Ave met on March 10 with the project team for that address. We reviewed their request for an up zoning from C1-1 to C1-5/Planned Development for...

    2221 N. Milwaukee got his feedback from the GGNA:

    The GGNA Zoning and Planning Committee (ZAPC) and neighbors who live near 2211 N. Milwaukee Ave met on March 10 with the project team for that address. We reviewed their request for an up zoning from C1-1 to C1-5/Planned Development for a 7 story building with 135 rental units.
    The plans as presented and the request for up zoning to C1-1 to C1-5/Planned Development were not regarded favorably by the ZAPC for the following reasons:
    1.) The seven story building is too massive and will be completely out of character and scale with the surrounding neighborhood buildings. The ZAPC recommends that the building height be no more than 5 stories with different heights along the street. Higher sections of the building should be closer to the bank and be lower closer to Talman.
    2.) The additional car density was also a big concern. This project should not move forward until alley, street traffic and parking exits have been reviewed at a community meeting and changes have been approved by CDOT. This building is one block from Goethe Elementary School where there are already traffic backups and more cars going north on Talman will add to those problems. The alley behind the building will also become congested. There are also not enough parking spaces for both the retail unit(s) on the first floor and for one space per unit, which will cause more parking issues both on Milwaukee and the nearby interior streets. This project is also one block from the Congress Theater that has historically brought in 5,000 plus people, many arriving in cars for events several times a week.
    3.) The size of the building will also create problems for surrounding neighbors by blocking sunlight and creating wind tunnels that will adversely affect both pedestrians and bicyclists.

  • 4.) Although a green roof is being planned for the top of the building, the developers said it will not be accessible to residents; only on the third floor. And there is no green space being planned on the street level on a pedestrian zoned street except a few trees...

    4.) Although a green roof is being planned for the top of the building, the developers said it will not be accessible to residents; only on the third floor. And there is no green space being planned on the street level on a pedestrian zoned street except a few trees in the parkway. The project team also did not mention any green building standards being used in construction of this building.
    5.) The project team agreed to provide 14 affordable housing units, the required 10%, in proportion to the range of apartment types. The ZAPC would like to see those affordable units made a requirement of this project with no donations to the city affordable housing fund allowed.
    6.) The project team referred to Plan B of the Milwaukee Ave Plan as a basis for the project height and density. They had no comment when it was pointed out that there was also a Plan A which called for buildings no higher than 4 stories.
    7.) The ZAPC needs more clearly detailed dimensional elevations for the project.
    We strongly recommend that Alderman Moreno not approve the current zoning request and plans as presented to the group. We would welcome the project team to come back to another ZAPC meeting after making changes in their plans based on the community concerns.

Package thiefs Alert

We live on the 1700 block of Washtenaw, and twice in the past few weeks (most recently, yesterday) have been victim to packages stolen off our stoop. These individuals are going so far as to break our gate locks to attain these boxes. Just a warning out there for those early holiday shoppers. Even locks are not stopping them!

  • NFT LS landlord and resident

    You can get mychoice through ups. It's $50/year and you can re-route an unlimited number of packages to a ups store to pick up. Otherwise it's $5/package.

  • Sadly, this is extremely common during the holidays. Basically, just assume anything you have sent to your place will be stolen. :(

Thanksgiving volunteering

Hi, my husband and I are always looking for ways where we can give back to our community. As we cannot be with our own families this year, we are looking for a place where we can help serve Thanksgiving dinner. We also plan on giving to the Chicago Food Depository, but was hoping to find a positive community environment on this day as well. Thanks so much!

  • There is a women's shelter in Old Town, near Piper's Alley, called Deborah's Place. A few years ago, I volunteered there on Christmas Eve with a friend to cook and serve food to their guests. It was a great night, I highly recommend them. They also need people on a daily basis.

Just spotted a chihuahua mix on Humboldt by Parson's. No collar but looks like a lost dog and not a stray. It's shivering and I'd like to help. Does anyone know who to contact? Thanks.

    There's a possible match listed as missing on the facebook page: Lost Dogs Illinois. Did you happen to see what color or colors this pup is as I will call family of missing pup listed there on this sighting. You can call 311 and hopefully they will send someone out to search for this pup. Hate to see this pup end up at a shelter but at least the pup would be safe and not freezing.
