Rent a house or three bed apartment

Help! I was wondering I anyone know of a place in oakpark,forest park,Elmwood that is for rent. Home is underwater and I have to prepare that bank is taken it back. Two adults, one child and three pets. Thanks and God bless.

  • So true Nan1951. In addition, some landlords have had a bad experience
    in the past with dogs that bark at anything or anyone, and a cat that
    smelled up the apartment (good friend of mine now will not take a chance any longer. I do feel that pets and their owners are happier when they are not renting but own a home, but that is not always possible. Birds and exotic
    fish probably fare better than a lively pet in an apartment.

  • Yes, Lisa. However, responsible pet owners can improve the image for everyone. I am eternally grateful to a senior landlord who gave me a chance in 1980 in the Brickyard neighborhood. I had a beautiful obedience trained and crated German Shepherd. I was the only person in the building with a dog. I lived there happily for ten years and the security that my older neighbors felt was immeasurable. We with dogs, have to prove ourselves each and every day!

Cutting down all the trees on my block

So far 10 trees have been removed. As we speak another is being cut. This started at 8:30 am. There was no posting on the tree or anywhere near it. I have called the City and have been told its cause of the ash bettle. None of the trees on my block have been or looked sick. They bloom every year, from top to bottom.

So far 10 trees have been removed. As we speak another is being cut. This started at 8:30 am. There was no posting on the tree or anywhere near it. I have called the City and have been told its cause of the ash bettle. None of the trees on my block have been or looked sick. They bloom every year, from top to bottom. My neighboor had hers removed because she hated it. And had a process to go through to do so. Shortly after that is when they started chopping them down left and right. When you looked at the cut down trees they were healthy, there was no sign of any infestation. When I asked the city why, I was told ALL OF THE ASH TREES ARE INFESTED, AND THEY WILL BE REMOVING THEM ALL. Also no new trees will be placed back unless the owner wants to have them come and do it. I think there is also a fee for that. My neighboor on the other side of the lady who had hers removed, he is refusing to have his cut down. So there has been talk between the neighboor on the other side n the one who had the tree removed. I think its disgusting. Our neighboorhood looks like garbage now. All the fresh air that we get from this polluted city is getting harder to get.

Mason ave trees

Ok so today my friend that lives down the street stopped by. He told me he saw the city trimming branches on his tree and thought that's all they were doing. Well the cut the whole tree down and told him that it was dead. He had told them it wasn't and didn't want it cut down. Phillip I had told him about your idea for Mason ave. I was wondering how we go about this. He and his wife want to join in getting trees back on Mason ave. The tree provided shade and they are upset. So if anyone can help us out please get ahold of me. Thank you all ;-)

LOST DOG

lol I have lost my dog on March 4th in the Austin and Bernice area.it's a 7 year old female German Shepherd

  • Me too Kathleen. She is gorgeous! I private messaged the OP but I have not heard anything back. I was hoping this was their pup since she was found a few blocks away and on the same day theirs got away but as of now she is still posted as lost on helping lost pets and lostdogsillinois, so we don't know if it was a match.
    Thankfully this pup is safe with the family that found her and hope the OP found their pup if this was not her.

Nice block doesn't always yield nice neighbors

I live on Parkside and wellington and if anyone is looking for a nicer group of neighbors I'd like to say it's NOT HERE!! ppl are rude and disrespectful of other people's property. I can go on but what's the point. I will be looking for a new area come spring. I was thinking maybe Humboldt park. At least there ppl are real.

  • Craig Born and raised in the city.

    I recall two shootings there last year. No one saw or heard a thing. But yet some how bullets made holes in a car and a person.

  • Tell me why ppl are still calling dibs on parking. I can't even leave my house for fear of not finding a parking when I get back. Talked to alderman office 2x ..promises promises

Dunning Conservation area gazebo collapsed

So sad to have seen the new gazebo built last summer, has collapsed, and I hope they will rebuild!!

  • cc...was that the tool shed in the community garden near the Streets & San yard? Or was it some other building elsewhere?

  • cheesecake chick i want to be the person my dog thinks i am

    it was a "gazebo" or picnic shelter. it was open air, so I doubt anyone would use it for a tool shed.......you can see it from oak park avenue, in the parking lot.

Chicago Tonight on Mayoral Election

"A new report being released this morning shows that the supposedly budget-strapped Windy City – which for years has not made its full pension payments – actually has mountains of cash sitting in a slush fund controlled by Mayor Rahm Emanuel. Indeed, as the report documents, the slush fund now receives more money each year than it would cost to adequately finance Chicago’s pension funds.

"A new report being released this morning shows that the supposedly budget-strapped Windy City – which for years has not made its full pension payments – actually has mountains of cash sitting in a slush fund controlled by Mayor Rahm Emanuel. Indeed, as the report documents, the slush fund now receives more money each year than it would cost to adequately finance Chicago’s pension funds. Yet, Emanuel is refusing to use the cash from that slush fund to shore up the pensions. Instead, his new pension “reform” proposal cuts pension benefits, requires higher contributions from public employees and raises property taxes in the name of fiscal responsibility. Yet, the same “reform” proposal will actually quietly increase his already bloated slush fund.

But it gets worse: an investigation by Pando has discovered that Emanuel has been using that same slush fund to enrich some of his biggest campaign contributors."
