I found a pitbull puppy mix at the Target on 45th and Pulaski. She is about 6-8 months old and 35-40 pounds. She is VERY sweet with people and well groomed. Posted on Lost Dogs IL. Wearing a small black collar with no tags and no microchip. Clipped tail and brown and white marbled paws. Please share!

Alley light not fixed as of June 2017 despite calling 311 3x and requesting service on-line 2x

I pay hefty Chicago/Cook County taxes and every year they increase-and yet, I can't get the city to fix the alley light. Twice I have seen it reported on-line with the status "closed". When I call 311 to complain they don't want to hear anything other than the address and click-they disconnect. Is this the norm? Does it usually take this long? Let's face it, our neighborhood is no longer safe and a dark alley is asking for trouble.

  • JL

    With all the new lights on Morgan if one went out I wounder how long it would take to get fix LOL I have the same problem 3 months and still waiting

  • R Brighton Park

    That is ridiculous-I guess it is the norm. Well, I did call the Alderman's office earlier this week. Let's hope something gets done. Thanks to all for the comments.

Stop the Violence

We seriously need to organize a March in Brighton Park. How do we go about this? Can I get pointers, help with this? This is possibly the worse yr for this neighborhood ever. I've been living in Brighton Park my whole life and I don't recall anything close to all the violence going on this bad. Can we make this an event? Is there anyone willing to help with this?

  • Easy Money "Ask not what your country can do for you; ..."

    You want the violence to stop? Let local authorities work with ICE.

    Truth be told, most of the crime being committed in Brighton Park is done by the children of illegal aliens.

    If their parents get deported those Ese will begin to obey the law.

  • Disagree, Has nothing to do with having illegal aliens as parents. Why deport their parents? They're not causing violence. They need to bring back funds so mentors can work with troubled kids in the schools/neighborhood. It may not have saved /changed every troubled kid but it made a difference while...

    Disagree, Has nothing to do with having illegal aliens as parents. Why deport their parents? They're not causing violence. They need to bring back funds so mentors can work with troubled kids in the schools/neighborhood. It may not have saved /changed every troubled kid but it made a difference while mentoring was going on. Youths had someone to talk to and places to occupy their time at/with besides the streets. They(Kelly hs) haven't had a mentor since 2006, Miguel Contreras, last I remember. He was a mentor for awhile when I was in HS and he began to train me to work with troubled youths until they cut out funds. It's been history since then, the streets just got wilder.
