    Pretty stupid to leave a car running.

  • RaleighsMa Not fauxraged but may contain typos.

    Nice white socks. Could be Cliff Clavin. Hard times for fictional USPS workers these days.

  • When it is cold out it is very tempting to leave the car running to warm it up or keep it warm. I sent this article around to my family as a reminder. Running cars are very easy targets. Hope it serves as reminders to others.

FOUND @ 41st & Drexel

"We found a very sweet dog today in our neighborhood (found at 41st and Drexel). She was found in between two houses, barking out in the cold all day. She has no identification. We brought her to MedVet (24 hour vet) and found out that she has no microchip, and recently had puppies. We think she may have been abandoned, but we are hoping to see if we can spread the message far and wide in the case that someone is looking for her. Please share - especially South Side folks!" ~ Neil Maude 12/29/17

Our Police Stations aren't homeless shelters

Our Chicago can be a very rough, mean and cruel city. It's not just the appalling numbers of shootings and murders - other basic city services are falling down and now we have a brutal, arctic cold wave and homeless people are in distress.

Our Chicago can be a very rough, mean and cruel city. It's not just the appalling numbers of shootings and murders - other basic city services are falling down and now we have a brutal, arctic cold wave and homeless people are in distress.

I note that the 51st street (by the Dan Ryan) Police station is being used as a homeless shelter. As is the downtown Harold Washington library during the day - the urine stench in the newspaper room is very strong.

We need to pressure our representatives to restore our police stations for the service of policing and move the homeless to shelters or shame obscenely endowed none profit organizations (University of Chicago, Northwestern, Loyola, Depault) to build some new homeless shelters. Depaul University just got the City to build them a very expensive basketball stadium in prime real-estate in the South Loop. The Depaul basketball team hasn't been any good since the late 1970s. The Catholic Church has been really falling down in doing basic charities and now prefers to embrace PC Lib Leftist causes like making Chicago a sanctuary city where the laws against illegal immigration (drug trafficking, people trafficking, sexual slave trafficking) aren't enforced.

But, the key issue here is that we need our 51st street police station back as an effective police station and not a (diseased) homeless shelter.

    Feeding the homeless at Club 51: 'They are my friends, I break bread with them'
    Aleta Clark says she was 18 months old when her mom dropped her off at a South Side police station and walked off. Nearly 30 years later, Clark walked into another station on the South Side in February to see a relative and noticed a lobby filled with people seeking shelter from the cold night.

    I'm not soulless. I believe in helping the homeless but letting them reside in a police station doesn't provide the services they need.

Indoor places for family pictures

I'm a stickler for taking family pictures every year, but this year I procrastinated and missed the fall season. Now it's way too cold to take outdoor pictures so I'm thinking this might give us an opportunity to take pictures at a cool location we wouldn't ordinarily use. Any suggestions?

Prepay your Property Taxes for 2017 Tax Deduction

You may want to pay the 1st installment of your property tax bill before the end of this year for a deduction on your 2017 federal taxes. You may not be able to utilize the deduction in 2018.

https://illinoisestateplanning.blogspot.com/2017/12/prepay-your-property-taxes-for-2017-tax.html

    Prepay your Property Taxes for 2017 Tax Deduction
    With the likely passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, it is estimated that the majority of taxpayers who currently itemize their deductions will take the standard deduction for the tax year 2018. The reason for this change will be capping of State and Local Tax and Property tax deductions at $10,000.

Thinking about Moving to 60616

Hi friends...we are thinking about moving from over the river to south of the river....seems like a great - upcoming area. A new Marriott Marquis just went up, a Hilton is in process - and I hope that a grocery, walgreens, etc. are on their way.

Any hints or pointers those of you who live in the area can offer. We don't have a car....so, public transit, walking are our primary modes of getting around....

  • Judy Happy Chicago Resident!

    Hi New Neighbors...thank you for all of your feedback over this last month - we are moving to 60616 - renting at Cermak and Michigan. It is still a developing area - so, shopping and services won't be out my back door as they are in Streeterville. Without a car, I just have to plan better.

    New Question....what ward are we in? I have seen reference to Ward 3and Ward 4 And are there community/civic activities that I can get involved in?
