Missing Cat

My cat went missing on Friday night from the 1400 block of West Huron. He is a big brown Tabby with white paws. He answers to the name of Bob.

He normally just wandered the alley between Huron and Superior. Let me know if anyone has seen him!

Thanks!

Late Night Fire on W. Chestnut?

I saw a house on fire and smoking majorly last night around 12am-1am. Tons of firetrucks, noise and commotion.

The firefighters used saws to open the roof. I can't find it anywhere on the news.

Anyone know what happened?

I hope everyone is ok.

Awful noise from ADM on Ogden?

Ive lived in the West Town neighborhood for 5 years now and just moved a few blocks from my apartment on Grand Ave.

I noticed at my new place a awful, squealing noise coming from outside that happens every morning from about 6am to around noon. It lasts for about a minute, stops for a bit then goes back again.

It's amazingly annoying and have to believe others hear it and can't stand it either.

Does anyone know what I'm taking about? Anybody know of any past complaints?

  • Isn't there a Planned Manufacturing District (PMD) just west of there? Unfortunately, I think you moved next to various factories/plants that will probably make those kinds of noises. That said, I'd still bring it up to your alderman.

Nanny Share

Looking for a family who can share a babysitter for days a week with us. Our son is in 1/2 day preschool at FXW and needs a friend to hang with while we work. Our schedule is flexible and ever changing.

Dent Fixing Scam

Hello, this happened to me in Lincoln Park today, but I can't imagine it's exclusive to that area. A guy pulled up as I was getting out of my car offering to fix the dent on the side of my car. Said he worked for Dent Busters and had his tools with him. He offered to do it for $100 and said several times not to pay him until he was done. I let him give it a go. He...

Hello, this happened to me in Lincoln Park today, but I can't imagine it's exclusive to that area. A guy pulled up as I was getting out of my car offering to fix the dent on the side of my car. Said he worked for Dent Busters and had his tools with him. He offered to do it for $100 and said several times not to pay him until he was done. I let him give it a go. He had a suction cup with a handle and after halfheartedly attempting to pull out the dent, got a scoop of white goo from a big tub of what he called "heat nap" from his trunk, put on gloves and smeared it all over the dent. Said that in several hours, the goop would cause the dent to pop out. While he was doing this, I called an auto body shop, and found out no such thing exists. While I was on the phone, a woman got out of his car and started yelling at me for not paying. By then, the dent fixer was back in the car, yelling to the woman, "She's calling an auto body shop!" The woman got in the car and they drove off. I was right near the White Glove car wash on Shakespeare, so pulled in there and was somewhat amused to find that the "heat nap" was shaving cream. Said his name was Angel, driving a silver late-model Chevy, maybe a Malibu. Had another man with him he called Jake. I called the police and the dispatcher was rather incredulous about the scam, so I'm guessing maybe it's the latest and greatest attempt to weasel people out of their money. Thankfully, I didn't end up losing $100, and will be taking the car to Advanced Auto Body, where I've had work done before. It will cost a lot more, but at least I won't have shaving cream on my car.

    SCAM I

    THIS IS A SCAM!! BIG TIME!! AND ITS KICKING UP AGAIN!!

    Scam Number II

    A "Roofer" claims to have viewed some damage on your roof and "offers" TO REPAIR IT-RIGHT THERE for a very low price. SCAM.

    Scam III-

    Third party "Uility Company Representatives" carrying copies of Com Ed and Peoples Gas bills-showing you how you are being scammed and invite you to get on board with their "Utility" Companies

    more scam alerts coming....

  • And, it just happened to me again on Paulina and Cortez. Different guy, same story -- he can fix my dent while I watch for a good price. Driving a gold SUV several years old. I guess my dent is more noticable than I've been telling myself. Be careful!
