BABY MONITORS! I was cleaning out the "drawer of entropy" that collects things we haven't seen fit to get rid of and found our old baby monitors. Upon seeing them several things occured to me. The transmit unit is both battery and wall wart powered so I can either set it up in the garage near the window or find someplace else indoors but near a window or other place where it can hear outside well. I further remembered how...
BABY MONITORS! I was cleaning out the "drawer of entropy" that collects things we haven't seen fit to get rid of and found our old baby monitors. Upon seeing them several things occured to me. The transmit unit is both battery and wall wart powered so I can either set it up in the garage near the window or find someplace else indoors but near a window or other place where it can hear outside well. I further remembered how we would sit bolt upright in bed when we heard crying only to realize that we were on the same frequency as one of our neighbors! Ours are older models that do not have encryption or other things to keep cross talk from happening, so if a number of neighbors on your street have these and everyone sets them to the same frequency, you have a neighborhood audio surveillance network on the cheap! The sound of the tool used to cut off the converters is distinctive, but with the windows closed for winter, not so easily heard. FYI, the thieves use landscape blocks they grab up locally to put under the cars they take wheels from, so be on the watch for those being disturbed.
If we can catch just one bunch of these fools, the police might be able to follow their supply chain back to the buyers and garages that profit from our stolen car parts.
Why would a Vandalism be posted (37 hours ago) that occurred on February 28th? It’s my block and I’m concerned.
PLEASE FOLKS, if you are reporting crimes, especially dangerous ones, include a description of the perpetrator and/or other pertinent details so the rest of us know what to watch for. Just knowing that something happened is essentially useless.

Curious if you or someone you know in Avondale or Albany Park could use some assistance with their yard or home at the end of June. The churches I pastor, Concordia Belmont and Tabor in Albany Park, will be hosting servant teams June 25-29 that would love to assist our neighbors with yard cleaning, landscaping, odd jobs, or small repairs. Please contact me if you know of a need that this team might be able to meet. I can't guarantee that the teams can help everyone, but I figured I'd ask and see how we may be able to help.

Hello, i'm getting a waterline install quote for a 3 flat in the Northside of Chicago. Looking for economical referrals if anyone has any. I've already gotten pricey quotes from Apex, and Parks Plumbing but am wondering if a smaller company can do better. Thanks everyone.

Early am of 2/19, three in the Peterson Woods neighborhood, (SW of Lincoln and Peterson) cut off of vehicles with a cordless tool and a 1/8" abrasive cut off blade like the ones muffler shops use.
Hi I am looking for a 2 car garage or even just a garage to rent in general in Albany Park! Anything would be great! Thanks!
