Coyotes

They are here. If you have a small dog, don't leave them unattended. If you walk a big dog be prepared and have some form of defense. Since I believe it's a couple. Now those of you that will freak out, DON'T. I had them on video back on October. They are great,. Great rodent eliminators. God knows we need that here. This neighborhood is infested. Anywhere near Jeff Terminal is REALLY bad. Just be alert, and if you see...

They are here. If you have a small dog, don't leave them unattended. If you walk a big dog be prepared and have some form of defense. Since I believe it's a couple. Now those of you that will freak out, DON'T. I had them on video back on October. They are great,. Great rodent eliminators. God knows we need that here. This neighborhood is infested. Anywhere near Jeff Terminal is REALLY bad. Just be alert, and if you see one, make noise, yell at them. They will run the other way. Just an FYI. I watched them for over an hour or two around 6 pm Tonite in my alley. Working on my car. They don't want to be around people. So, respect them and rodent problem will be a thing of the past. They can hang in my alley all they want. I welcome them, we need them people, so don't get crazy. Just watch your small animals, as you should in the first place.

  • Botkin Kinch: the knife-blade

    I had two in my front yard last November, maybe 6 p.m.. They completely ignored me for a while—looked like they were playing in what was then the first snowfall of the cold season—then trotted away calmly when they spotted me.

  • I had no idea...60 collered 'yotes.

    thanks for the link nikki, that was an interesting read.

Police Activity

Does anyone know why there are three helicopters stationary and circling between Shabbona Park and Harlem? There are also police cars on every corner.

One look at why and how zoning has become a focus of property owners.

If this is not behind a pay wall, here's a think piece about how property owner opinions on their rights to have a say in community development evolved. While it doesn't set out to change anybody's opinion, having it in mind helps me understand why I hold certain value judgments. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/01/03/upshot/zoning-housing-property-rights-nimby-us.html?comments#permid=25419406

    How 'Not in My Backyard' Became 'Not in My Neighborhood'
    In Seattle, the neighbors don't want apartments for formerly homeless seniors nearby. In Los Angeles, they don't want more high-rises. In San Jose, Calif., they don't want tiny homes. In Phoenix, they don't want design that's not midcentury modern.

AirBNB Cleaning

Is anyone in the area interested in making some money doing some sporadic AirBNB cleaning? It's roughly 30 minutes of work a couple times a month. I'd offer $25 to someone I can trust to stop by and clean.

Unfortunately, there is usually only 1-3 days notice and the cleaning has to be done between 11:00am-2:00pm.

Addison & Central

  • Greetings,

    I live right off of Addison and Central. I have housekeeping experience and would be interested in hearing more about this position. I have excellent references that could easily be verified. I would be available immediately. Also, I would be able to work around a last minute cleaning.

    Sincerely,

    Mary

    I'm interested too. Is there a number to reach u at. I also live by Irving n Austin

Coyote sighting

It’s Dec 11th and at 8am I saw a large coyote running around the block. It looked scared, tail down and ears back, and seemed to attempting to find a place to hide. I called 911 who sent me to 311. Last seen running northbound on Neva from Wellington. Animal Control has been notified.

Rich's Fresh Market Stinks?

Is "Rich's Fresh Market" a grocery store or a smokers lounge?

  • PennyPenguin Chillin' out on EB

    This seems more appropriate for a yelp review or the business's website. A random post here won't do much good and likely will solve nothing.

Neighbor running an illegal auto-shop from his garage.2-3 cars parked around his house. Since the garage is full of shop equipment & cars, this means at least 5-6 cars are parked on the street outside his house and mine. Loud noise throughout the day, fuel and oil smell, improper disposal of hazardous liquids, no fire extinguishers observed, no permit in window. Constant drop offs of cars or snowblowers and lawn mowers, back yard trashed. equipment everywhere and covered up with brown materials. Smell, noise, illegal activity in this beautiful neighborhood. Police called in several times since the owner is verbally abusive and threatening that he is gonna kill or "take care of us" if we complain. Went to alderman for 60634 zip code and was told to keep complaining and calling 911 every time the neighbor is doing an illegal activity. Attended a meeting at Portage Park with CPD and they said that city will send extra police rounds if needed. Any advice will be appreciated.

  • Sposato is useless. Brought some complaints to him and he brushed them off. Best to ogo over him or the newspaper. The key is total neighbor involvement and being the squeeky wheel.

  • You just have to give Sposato a bigger envelope than this neighbor. All pencil neck Sposato cares about is his two city pensions.
