What's that smell?

Does anyone know what that odor is in Garfield Ridge at 5:45 a.m. on Saturday 4/21? It woke me up. Inside the house, I first thought it resembled a "wet heat" odor -- like an old radiator smell (but I have gas heat). Opened the front door and was hit with a much stronger smell -- almost like some garlic/onion/spice combination, but with a more chemical note. It stuck to my clothes in the 3 seconds that I was out there. I've smelled lots of foul things around here over the years, but this particular odor is new to me.

Garfield Ridge library

Where was the Garfield Ridge library’s original location?

  • Daniel Ferone Home Owner

    I remember in the late 50's & early 60's it was a Library bus or van.

    Sometime later it was store front located on Archer east of Oak Park on the south side of the street.about 6743 S. Archer.

    Prior to the current location I believe it was at 6322 S Archer which became an eye doctor's office.

  • Many spots used bookmobile. One driver and 1-3 librarians. Would travel from location to another. They were fazed out in the 80's

Lost car key 3/9

In parking lot s/e corner of 56th and Harlem Ave. Its a car key with a chip and I can't afford to replace it right now. If you have it and dont know how to get it back to the rightful owner, you can drop it off at the hair cutting shop. Leave your info and receive a $25 Dunkin Donut gift card. Thank you

  • James A Micek Proud Homeowner

    I actually felt awkward going to that meeting (which I never attended) just to get the DD gift card. I was just glad to be of help. May I suggest giving the gift card to someone who could really use it? Perhaps a homeless person?
    Thanks, ;)

  • srapach GR civic member

    You need not have felt awkward it's a meeting open to the public. And, you would have learned about the Home equity program. I will donate the card to a needy person as you requested.
