    There are a few things to remember about some people we live with. Some of them have mental health issues. These are people who can't control themselves due to something that may or may not being happening in the brain.

    There are also the people who make bad judgments. For example, politicians are supposed to do the things that their voters ask. However, we know that they are humans and may negotiate to make life better for us voters in the long run. The other part of this picture is you and I being on the receiving end of decisions that we did not make. We become stuck with the repercussions. Why do we let ourselves and our family's get stuck with politicians passing laws that we don't approve? Where is the accountability?

    If everyone has to be accountable like you and me then maybe we would have a better world. Every time I make a mistake I get fined, especially for not coming to a complete stop at the stop sign or crossing into the intersection when the stoplight is yellow.

    What are we doing about the people who stick us with huge taxes, make us pay a private parking meter company to use City streets that we pay for, and then give that parking money to LAZ Parking when that very same money can go to support our police & fire workers and teachers.

    How are we going to make government be accountable? We are being taxed to DEATH, and the death of future generations too!

blue carts

i want to hear stories of blue carts
around 60608 they are being turned over and pushed off
to the sides ,, not being used ,, should be taken away and
add some black cans ,, can u see garbage failing over the place
and the rat stories ,,, ha ha ha u should see our neighborhood
and when you call 311 and request rat poison the guy looks at
u and says can;t the block do something with the over loaded
garbage ,,, ps orange stickers blue cart puts them on and
the regular garbage men couldn;t care less about dumping them

just start watching them

  • denise b concerned citizen

    Also call Sanitation for your area. They are the ones that deal with rats and garbage.

  • i always bag my aluminum cans. i rinse them pretty well beforehand. i do this to make it easier on scrappers. we usually leave them on the side and theyre gone pretty quickly.

Anyone know about shots fired last night, 9/8/17 into 9/9/17 near 19th and Leavitt?

As the headline says. Woke my whole household up (cats included!). Scares me every time. Thankfully all were accounted for in my house.

This is all so out of hand.

Found beautiful lab

Trying to reunite with his family. If you know whos dog this might be please comment.

  • I recommend you post a photo of this cutie on "Lost Dogs Illinois" and check the photos of lost dogs: https://www.facebook.com/LostDogsIllinois.

    Agree 1,000% with what Karen, Jambo and Jefferson Park wisely advised.

    Thank you for having such a loving and generous heart for this dog. He is not in your life and in your care by mistake.

    Please keep us posted, and let us know if there is something we can do to help.

  • ... something I posted elsewhere. It's worth repeating:
    Please do not trust anyone who claim it's their dog. Get proof. There have been people answering to ads of lost dogs ... these jerks are Jeffrey Dahmers in the making, they wind up abusing the dogs and killing them. Ask who...

    ... something I posted elsewhere. It's worth repeating:
    Please do not trust anyone who claim it's their dog. Get proof. There have been people answering to ads of lost dogs ... these jerks are Jeffrey Dahmers in the making, they wind up abusing the dogs and killing them. Ask who is their vet, look for a listing of the vets, then call the vet & ask if Joe Blow owns such a dog. Just don't take people's words that the dog is theirs. Do some sleuthing.

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4744660/Chicago-man-threw-two-dogs-roof-gets-prison.html

    What if the dog is not micro-chipped? A dog or cat that's given to the wrong person could wind up as bait dog, practice dog for illegal dog fights. Or it could wind up being a money making scheme for someone who will sell animals that's not theirs (could wind up being used in laboratory experiments). Don't allow people (who claim the lost dog might be theirs) to come to your home so soon because they might use that as a way to come and case your home to see what's to steal. One thing I thought of in sleuthing, you could ask the person for words "their" dog responds to. Thank you to everyone who go that little extra mile to get lost animals back to their rightful owners.

Security System Research resulting from Garage Fires

As a result of the Bridgeport Garage fires I have been doing some investigating of economical security systems. Best Buy has the Arlo Pro system on sale for $399.99 in today's ads. Wireless, night vision, 2 cameras, motion-activated or can have "live", can activate alarm sound, no expensive contract and trying to get a group discount for bulk purchase. Come to the next CAPS meeting Tuesday September 12th at St. Barbara's school at 2859 S. Throop, at 6:30 PM for more information. See review below, and photo of Best Buy's ad from 8/27/2017.

    ICE raids could crack down on Mexican-American gangs in Chicago
    Chicago youth who live in majority-Mexican neighborhoods with regular gang activity may be the targets of deportation raids planned this week by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). An internal memo instructed federal agents to detain teenagers aged 16 and 17 who meet at least two criteria of gang membership, such as having gang tattoos, wearing gang apparel, or being in an area frequented by gangs.
