Follow up from locking your tires.

These jerk offs are still trying to get at my wrangler spare. Happened on early Saturday morning. My tire cover is pulled back and there was some scratches on my wheel lock. Looks like that they are just trying to get it off with a lug wrench. I have Mopar wheel locks on my spare. Anyone suggest a better lock? I'm gonna have an alarm system put it soon. I need a garage!!!

  • They got my friend's tire Saturday night:(. Go to a tire shop and get a cheap used spare on a basic rim. Keep the locking lug nuts on it and cover it. They won't want it then and you won't have to worry about it. They have been sweeping the city lately.

  • I'm curious. What does the tire thief do with the tire once it's stolen? Who buys it? Also, are there alarms for spares? Thanks.

  • So be on the lookout for two minivans. One is an astro van. My friend saw these guys in action but had to keep a distance as he was by himself. He's a dog walker and sees these guys on occasion. I know it's them because my gf was getting...

    So be on the lookout for two minivans. One is an astro van. My friend saw these guys in action but had to keep a distance as he was by himself. He's a dog walker and sees these guys on occasion. I know it's them because my gf was getting in the jeep in the early am and saw two vans passing by slowly. One was playing the lookout and the one was up to something. It was the same day my tire was messed with. My friend is gonna try to snap a shot at the license plate the next chance he gets.

Lock you tires!

I recently had my spare tire stolen off my Jeep Wrangler. I did not have it locked as I bought it new and didn't think twice of it. This was me not thinking. I replaced my spare and bought locks and a tire cover. I have found my cover pulled back twice already when going back to it in am. Neighbors be aware.

  • My husband's was stolen yesterday off his jeep liberty. His was locked and had a cover on it.

  • Happened to my Honda CRV a few weeks ago too. Reported to police but looks like they swept the area.

Time to plant parkway trees

Fall is the best time to plant trees. Home Depot on Elston has all their trees half price. I picked up a 12 foot red maple shade tree and they only charged me $8 so that might have been 75% off. The lady working the garden center said this is the time Home Depot needs to get rid of their tree stock. Don't mean to sound like an ad for Home Depot but I didn't go there to buy a tree but ended up with one. The root balls are small so digging a hole for it should be simple. No need to deal with the city either.

  • Don't forget "right tree, right place!" A tree planted in the wrong area for the type of tree species could have bad consequences for the tree's life and the surrounding area. That being said, we can never have enough trees and this seems like a great deal!

  • mwalcheske Enthusiast

    Bought 4 evergreens from Home Depot a few years back and all 4 died quickly. I returned them, got my $ back, bought 4 more of the same varietal from a local garden shop, and today all 4 are healthy and thriving. I learned my lesson. I tried to save $ by getting my trees at Home Depot, but it didn't work out. I've heard others say the same thing about buying their trees from them as well. Just food for thought.

Bruce - Available for Adoption

Hi!

I'm fostering Bruce and wanted to post information about him in case anyone was interested in adoption. He's approximately two years old, people, kid and dog friendly (cats need not apply)! He's an energetic goofball who loves affection.

Garage Sale Questions

Hi all.

Has anyone had a garage sale recently? I heard that posting signs anywhere except on your own property is a no-no and that you need to have a permit. Is this correct?

    My then-neighbors actually had theirs checked this year or last, I can't remember which. They have them alot. It only took them a few minutes to walk over to the alderman's office to get the permit. Although, I do remember them telling me after the first time how surprised they were at how rude the staff was there. The staff made a point of indicating the person that would check for it and the guy said something kind of rude/threatening to them -- as threatening as garage sale permits can get, I suppose. But, that's Rey Colon's office. Hopefully, you don't have to deal with them.

  • Many thanks for all your help. We were able get our permit today--same day service! I was a skeptic on the quick turnaround suggested in these comments. I am glad I was proved wrong.

    So! Garage sale. This Saturday near the corner of Leavitt and Charleston. See you there?

shots wicker park

has anyone heard 8 shots around wicker park today at 3am?

  • Also heard this on 2100 block of W Le Moyne at around 3:00 am on Monday night/Tues morning. Super loud.

  • I also heard it near Evergreen & Leavitt.

    Kat, the simulated gunshots for 'Empire' happened about 2 weeks ago, so it certainly wasn't that.
