Jay

Almost midnight and some dude keeps yelling "jay" outside near grand and may, but I cannot see him! Is he locked out? Is he drunk? He is now honking. This is awesome.

Any gardeners in need of compost material?

Hello neighbors! I have recently begun to compost, but I feel like eventually I will have too much to keep in our apartment with limited outdoor space. If you are in need of this kind of material, or know of a place that is, please let me know!

Custom cushion for window seat - vendor recommendations?

Hi, neighbors,

I am looking for a business that makes custom window seat cushions. Would also possibly have them make new covers for my outdoor cushions in the spring. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Thanks!

  • Bell Upholstery on Sedgwick (around 1400 N) does a nice job and is very reasonable. I had a bench reupholstered., need pad and support, etc. Get specifics on hours because he closes for lunch.

  • Thanks, Kathy!

New Construction at Old Lumber Yard Across From LaSalle School?

It looks like there's construction starting at the lumber yard where Trader Joes was supposed to go... I didn't realize there was a decision made about what was going there in its place. Does anyone know? Apartments or condos I'm sure?

Not cool, Moreno

Is it normal for campaign volunteers to canvass door-to-door at 8pm? We were putting our 6 month old to bed and got our buzzer rung...twice! My husband ran outside and gave them the what-for. The goons seemed less than contrite.

  • 1st Ward Alderman Proco Joe Moreno

    Hi Alya,
    Sorry for the disturbance. It is common for campaign volunteers to canvass at times when it seems likely that residents will be home from work. I'll speak to our volunteers personally to address this specific complaint.
    Thank you for the feedback.

  • All our volunteers have been asked to not canvas past 7pm. I, too, am a mom and in general, feel residents are settled for the evening by that time. Have also reminded all volunteers that NO literature is to go into mail boxes. Have seen some literature (not ours) slid in the boxes. Working towards Feb 24 -- unless we have a run off, residents should not be bothered after that date! Don't forget -- 1st Ward Debate Jan 29, 7pm at Wells High School.

  • I, too had an incident about a week ago-I believe they were campaigning for Jan Schawosky. I probably spelled that incorrectly. Anyway, they laid on my buzzer like the building was on fire and woke me up. (I had the flu.) I just said "no thank you" and they went away. I should have gone downstairs and explained to them why this behavior was unacceptable. Can't believe they think this is ok.
