Cat Found

Hi. I live in the area of 29th and archer. There is a white and grey long haired cat that has been wandering the block the last month.

She now looks like a stray but answers and comes to my back porch everyday. Shes in need of some clean up and medical but it seems she belonged to someone once.

Anyone still missing a medium to long haired grey and white cat? She wanders around crying and its heartbreaking. Anyone know of a service that will pick her up?

  • Jambo neighbor

    Dear Cat Helper, Theresa and Miss Priss, THANK YOU to these ladies for watching out for animals in need! You are LOVED for this!

  • MissPriss, thank you so much for helping this kitty. Having a tender heart for animals is a gift...and you are using your gift well. Many, many blessings to you!

Merging Bridgeport Churches and Schools

Anyone have any update abouts what's going on with Bridgeport Churches and Schools merging?

  • The Catholic church need to update their policies to relate better with the younger generation. I believe a great way to start is having better schools. The Archdicese of Chicago need to invest more into their schools. Chicago have a demand for better education. If you build it, they will come.

  • I'm an atheist and it saddens me to think that these lovely Catholic church buildings will one day be gone. They are architecturally pleasing and function as community centers, which we need more of instead of storefronts and condos. I went to MSA and always found the bell towers of StAnthony's inspiring. I'm not sure how I can help, as I'm neither a worshiper nor have deep pockets.

The Chinese Exclusion Act

PBS/WTTW Channel 11 on May 29th is having a special presentation of the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882. It examines the history of how this Act kept the Chinese from coming to America and the Chinese who are already in America from becoming US citizens until the 1940's.

  • emj will love watching this. If she had her way, Bridgeport would have dozens of boarded up storefronts where Chinese businesses flourish today.

  • In 1944, a Chicagoan became the first Chinese-American to naturalize after repeal of the Chinese Exclusion Act. He was in the US since 1892.

My favorite Bridgeport Pizza?

Does anyone know what happened with Lina's Pizza on Morgan Street?

  • Too many people are just brave when sitting behind a key board. I really wish he would take his comments and racial slurs to the streets of Bridgeport.

    ===

    R. Gar ... Tad is the classic definition of a troll. But you are correct in that I would love to see him take his comments and racial slurs to the streets - especially around Armour Square - there he would turn into a magician in that he would actually disappear.

    p.s. bye Tad, you've been muted.

  • emj1900 bp lifer

    I already muted the troll as well .... He seems to really hate this area, why is he even here...? And you are right R. Gar.....Let him make those racist slur comments in let's say Rockys.......Now that would be funny.....
