I haven't received any mail in two weeks!

I live on Wolcott between Augusta and Divison and I haven't received any mail in two weeks. I share a box with another unit and it doesn't seem like they're getting anything either. Anyone else experiencing this? I suppose it's pointless to call the USPS in Chicago.

  • Thank you for all the tips! I didn't realize this was such a widespread problem.

  • @markchicago - have you visited or called the post office yet and spoken with a supervisor? I'm wondering what the results was? Did you start receving mail yet?

Found Lost Kitten / Cat

This little kitten showed up on our porch this morning. If anyone knows who this cat belongs to please contact me.

    If you can grab her, get her scanned for a microchip. Paws does not take in cats or dogs, they go through animal care and control etc. The other person who posted that she was on their porch said she meowed and showed her belly which makes me think she may not be spayed, is in heat and is probably a stray. You might consider calling Treehouse and seeing what they can recommend doing. If you are willing to take on the responsibility of getting her spayed (feral cats will be spayed for free but you will have to catch her, bring her over there and pick her up) that would be awesome as chances are she will get pregnant very soon if she is a stray. You can do a catch and release so you wont have to find a home for her if that is something you cant do. Just getting her spayed would be huge.

    Definitely call Treehouse -- Those folks are super helpful when dealing with lost cats & strays! www.treehouseanimals.org

lost dog

My Very gentle, but shy Tan and white pit bull mIx ran out the door 7/27 near division and paulina. She is not wearing her collar. It slipped off when she bolted. She is chipped. Her name is biscuit. Please contact me if you see her. Again, she is very friendly.

  • Jean-is she posted on Lost Dogs Illinois? If you send me her info (pic, chip#, etc), I'll keep an eye out for her at the shelter where I work.

  • Thanks so much for your concern. I just got a phone call from the chip people and now just waiting for a call from the folks that have her. !!! I'm very happy!!

Is Happy Village a good neighbor?

Hi potential soon-to-be neighbors. I'm looking into moving into a building that is on Wolcott, directly across from Happy Village. Has anyone close to there had problems with noise, late-night patrons, etc? Any feedback would be much appreciated. Thanks! - jake

  • I live in an apartment a few buildings south of Happy Village and I never hear anything. If I'm walking home late at night and pass by, the people standing outside smoking are usually quiet. The patrons seem to be respectful of the people living nearby.

Window Repair

Does anyone know of a good window repair company/guy? I recently got into a new place and the locks on my windows are all busted and need to be fixed, but all I've found are companies that want to replace the whole windows for thousands of dollars.
Thanks!

    They also sell replacement parts at Menard on Clyburn very simple I do them my self. Just take one of the locks off and bring it there. If you need the windows argon gas replaced if they are fogged up take it to pegus windows on grand it will take a day or 2 if you bring the early. You may have to cut a piece of plywood and a 2 by 4 to cover your window in the mean time.
    I have a hand man that can take most windows out for 150 to $200 to re seal and flash for leaksif not done properly.
