    Really looking forward to this event. Do we know if anyone from the Alderman's office will be present? A serious discussion needs to take place on the current open-top garbage cans located throughout the neighborhood. They are constantly overflowing with trash and obviously a huge part of the problem. With solar trash compactors and other solutions out there, it's insane that we still use these. It's also very upsetting that lazy MFers insist on stacking their trash on top when there is already a mountain spilling over.

    Sorry, but this topic gets me heated!

Shooting Drake and Lyndale

Does anyone have any info on what happened last night around 2 am on the corner of Drake and Lyndale. We woke up to what sounded like several gunshots and police cars...

  • Mark L Logan Square homeowner

    My wife says she heard shots too (we are across from the YMCA) but neither of us know what happened.

  • any such name live, walk, & cook in logan square

    I live right there and was woken up from a dead sleep a little after 12am (probably 12:10 or 12:15); I have been working insane hours so was very disoriented and had no idea what I'd heard, I assumed it was a car crash. But it definitely was not at 2am, it was a couple hours earlier.

  • Thanks I have a family member that works for CPD I asked them to look into it. I'll keep you posted.

Protests and cops by California and Milwaukee

Saw a protest and a LOT of cops. Any idea what is going on? Milwaukee is shut down with cops circled around the protestors

  • ld2

    So well organized they waited until these things were nearly complete to protest. I'm sure they'll stop construction and head on home....

Alleys are streets?

Any recommendations on how to curb alleys being used as streets? High speed traffic and honking in alleys between Western, Milwaukee and Fullerton.

  • Milli Lawyer, mom, Logan Square resident.

    Speed bumps made a huge difference in our alley. About 50% come to a complete stop before crossing and through traffic has dramatically reduced.

  • Tony Jones esq "Long block" resident

    The alley behind our house has speed bumps and connects to the Foremost Liquors parking lot at California and Milwaukee. I cannot say for certain, but those facts may be connected. They certainly deter a quick getaway from the liquor store. Aside from the massive potholes of course.

New Humboldt Community Garden?

Does anyone have any info on a new (what I think is a community) garden on Humboldt Blvd one half block north of North Ave? I live nearby and am wondering if I'll be able to use it, and who I need to talk to. It appeared over the weekend!

  • Sam and Janielle, I have added you to the richmond community garden email. Let me know if you don't get email.

  • Hello! Is this garden still available to join in on? I was planning on joining in on the garden next to FoodSmart but it doesn't look like they're operating anymore. Would love to know any details to get involved.

Where do you buy your flowers?

It's ALMOST flower season and I need a ton of flowers. Any suggestions on where I can go for affordable flowers that won't kill the bees?

  • Deb R 60641 resident 40 + yrs.

    Farmers Market on Elston not only has a large, healthy selection but a knowledgable staff. They can answer any questions you have about the plants, bushes or trees they sell.

  • I called Burpee’s customer service on 03-30-16 and they verified via phone that they do NOT treat their seeds and plants with any pesticides - they do NOT use Neonicitinoids.
    Yay!

    from Burpee customer service via email -

    “We do not treat our seeds with neonicotinoid pesticides or any pesticides; they are milled, washed, dried, and packaged. If you are concerned about the use of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers in the production of our seed, we recommend using our organic seed found at http://www.burpee.com/organic-gardening/. All of our organic seeds are produced from plants that have not been treated with any synthetic pesticides or fertilizers, and all of Burpee's organic seeds have been certified organic by the Oregon Tilth (Oregon Tilth Homepage)

    “With regards to our plants, we use integrated pest management in our greenhouses and only apply pesticides according to the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture rules for pesticide application.  We make every effort in our production methods to not harm bees.

    “Burpee is the nation's leading purveyor of both heirloom and hybrid vegetables seeds and transplants. Burpee purchases seeds from a select list of suppliers throughout the world including Seminis. However, none of the seeds purchased from Seminis or any other supplier are GMO. Burpee has never bred or sold GMO seeds and does not intend to do so in the future.”

    Not sure exactly what "integrated pest management" means and I think it's a term that is meant to be vague and sortof much-encompassing. I think it means they try everything else before using any chemical pesticides on their plants.

Cheese makers? Looking 4 NON ultra pasteurized milk/cream

I'm near West Logan/Hermosa and wondering if there are any cheese makers out there shave tracked down NON ultra pasteurized milk and cream in the neighborhood. I know Fresh Thyme has the Kalona (pic) but it gets pretty expensive. Many brands like Deans don't say ultra pasteurized but after trying them they don't work very well leading me to believe they are ultra. Any cheese makers out there or milk aficionados? Thanks!

  • Mark,

    Do you know how much they charge for the raw milk?

What do you think happened?

Saturday morning on our backdoor stoop we found three jackets/winter coats, a set of keys and other various loose items including a photo booth strip from Slippery Slope. We live just off of Milwaukee near the SS. No wallets, IDs or money were found, nice jackets though. Called SS several times and only got the answering machine.
What chain of events do you think explains this?

  • I would guess the coats were stolen and wallets were taken from them if they were in the coats. Whoever stole them went thru them on or near your door.

  • Yep, I'd guess they were taken from a nearby bar or restaurant (where people hang their coats maybe near the door) and then dumped. Sure hope the owners can be reunited with their coats. That's got to be just really raw to lose your stuff that way.

    Maybe create a flyer and take it around to the local bars and restaurants? (no photo - you can confirm true owners by getting accurate descriptions over the phone.)

Is this your dog?

I saw a female pit bull with no collar, running around by Monroe elementary school. It was between Lawndale and Monticello on Schubert today at 11am. I tried to get the dog to come to me but it kept running off.
I took a picture but this was as close as I could get.

Shooting on Julia Court

I slept through it. Anyone have any info?

  • Sorry to hear that Addison. Eventually, we all come to the realization that the Chicago police don't really investigate attempted murders like you'd think. If the gangbanger victim went to the hospital, they'll tell the cops they didn't see anything and pursue vengeance outside of the legal system. The police will leave it at that and file a report. There's thousands of these a year, so the whole system is numb to it.

  • I'm aware of that, but I don't presume police inaction, and then don't do my part. I will act, and then if the cops don't, it's not because I didn't try. I will lead them by my citizen example.

    By the way, I'm third generation and know full well how it works.

Congress Pizza Property Sold ?????

I've been told that the Congress Pizza property at Milwaukee Ave and Campbell has been sold. Today I noticed a large drill in their parking lot and that at least 2 holes where drilled. I assume that the drilling has probably something to do with sampling of the soil such as was done on the site of the twin towers. I'm wondering if anyone in the neighborhood has any idea what is happening at this site.

  • Steve I East Logan Square since 2005

    That location should remain tower-free since it is well outside the 600ft TOD zone for the Western stop. That part of Milwaukee doesn't have the "pedestrian street" extension. Unless / until there is another attempt to expand TOD.

  • The 600ft rule for non-pedestrian streets was increased to 1/4 mile through a city ordinance last year.

Found cat

I found a cat in our yard and he is SUPER friendly, so thinking he's not feral. He followed me into our garage and I have him some food. No collar, will check for a chip tomorrow night. White and gray spots. Let me know if this sounds like your kitty!

  • Monica Over 15 years in the 60622 zip code

    Thanks for helping him. I hope you find his person. Keep us posted what you find out!

  • He was a neighbor's kitty! They came by the next day and got him and he was VERY happy to see his family!

  • What was their story?
