Lost Emerald Cut Diamond Engagement Ring

Please help, if you have seen it or found it, please return to a police station :( It's my fiancee's mother's stone, I would be forever grateful if you returned it.

  • Haha! Been looking for you up here. You haven’t missed a thing. We welcomed some new girl and a big debate broke out about censorship over here and that got up to about 30 replies, but that’s it. I appreciate the adding the extra neighborhoods tips. Fewer days go by now where “no neighbors posted” today. So that’s great!

  • 30 replies. .thats good! Here you will sometimes see Edgewater/Rogers Park sparring..a bit like West Side Story. As far as this thread I think the deleted post suggested offering a reward. I think it was very brief and polite..dont know why it was removed

Indoor Basketball?

Anyone have any leads on access to an indoor basketball court in Edgewater or Rogers Park? I tried the Broadway Armory, but access is limited to Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:30pm-9pm...even as a member of the park. Having a membership to a public park paid for with our tax dollars is already a questionable practice...let alone the public not having access to a public park. I went in there hoping to have a morning shoot around. Totally empty, yet I wasn't allowed to shoot around. Anyway, I don't mean for this be a rant...just kinda rubbed me the wrong way. Just looking for some indoor basketball recommendations!

Thanks!

    Now they are paying people's rent too?

    CPS needs to stick to their primary tax payer funded mission and let the other community resources do what THEY do best. Wonder how much CPS is diverting in benefits and salaries to administer this housing program that overlaps with other city and state programs?

  • The money for the program comes from the City of Chicago Housing Trust Fund. CPS is just identifying families that are homeless but still managing to send their kids to school.

BEWARE!! Coyote sighting ON 1.17.2018

I witnessed a coyote walk east on the south side of Hollywood, cross the street to the north side, and walk the sidewalk West towards Clark.. 911 was called.

  • know where there is a coyote den near the river on the south side.
    I see them on my CCTV going on hunting excursions almost every night. I've seen their tracks in the snow and know right where they are.
    they have a pretty consistent pattern. I've even seen them carry rats and rabbits back to the den, so the reports that rats are an important food source for them is accurate.

  • Jill H 38 years in Chicago, 19 in North Center

    Yes, when they have a den they stay put. There's been a den in a major cemetery for years now and probably dens in other ones. So quiet, so peaceful in those places....

    We had something similar happen a couple weeks ago, also thinking we had locked the doors but assumed we must not have. Again, nothing that we can tell was taken.

    If thieves are doing that to determine if folks are home, not sure if that’s the smartest plan. We have garages, so while one car may have to park on the street most people around have a couple cars and one will always be on the street and one in a garage or parking space for the building. There have also been times when we’ve had to park a block or two away, so unless they’re continually doing a sweep it’s hard to be certain that folks aren’t home.

    Two Chicago aldermen want to limit release of condo owners' personal information
    Two Chicago aldermen who represent most of downtown want to reverse a state law that makes condo owners' personal information more widely available to their fellow association members. A proposal introduced this week by Aldermen Brian Hopkins and Brendan Reilly would allow association boards to limit the release of owners' names, addresses, email addresses, phone numbers and weighted votes in Chicago condo buildings and complexes.
    http://www.chicagotribune.com
  • Wazzup not available

    being able to contact neighbors in an emergency - like flooding from above - is important. Not every condo has a manager on site - and not every condo has a contact person at night. This ordinance is important and will be appreciated when an emergency arises. There could be an exception for those condos with 24 hour on site contact -like manager or doorman.

  • Some smaller condo associations automatically distribute a list of telephone numbers to all residents for that purpose. This is different and was supposedly quietly stuck into another proposed Condominium Act change. I understand that several state senators and representatives are already starting to work on repealing that one part of the change.

The much deservedly maligned Lincoln Towing decided the best way to close out 2017 was to illegally tow a moving van packed with belongings and to make that burn a double their personal car too.
