winnamac coyotes back or never left ?

Saw a coyote walking in front of chappell on Wed night (11th) about 11:30pm . I was walking on the sidewalk and coyote was inside the fence. Was a decent size. Looked at each other and just kept walking.

  • So cool, I never see them. My guess, because they are so good at hiding, is that they never left.

  • I see these coyotes all the time. I only worry when I see two together then I tend to walk a little faster in the opposite direction. They are eating all the rats so I’m good with them. 👌🏼

  • They are everywhere - they mostly come around at night - but some do walk around during the day - - I found a big round 'crushed' spot in the middle of my garden plants.....perhaps a coyote decided to take a nap - -

Racist on a Bike

Yesterday morning my wife was walking near Gunnison and Western with our two-year old daughter, when an old white guy, possibly drunk, possibly mentally unsound, rode over to the stroller and said “F***in immigrants! Where are the real Americans. You’re not real Americans.” Then wobbled away on his bike. Does this guy sound familiar to anyone?

  • JP - I love the "lay down and take it" mentality.
    Why fight for a better world when you can just let people yell obscenities and racist remarks? Sounds pretty cowardly to me.

  • Jim in Buena Park 4100 Block Kenmore Homeowner

    Except when it comes to poisoning dogs, right JP ? Then it's okay to take matters into your own hands. To that end, statistics demonstrate that pit bulls are no more dangerous than any other breed of dog. Geez, JP, is it possible you're the victim of the "fake" news or is it just your own baseless prejudices ?

Western has been a MESS for some time

Ald. Pawar tried to get, had a $$$ study a few years ago to create
" slowdown islands" with Xpress Bus hook ups to those islands and
some plant - flower creations......
But - for some reason - it never happened...
Ald. O'Conner, altho very experienced is NOT as creative
nor as critical of monies poorly spent by the City and/or County..

  • The CTA website (as well as various apps) provide to-the-minute arrival times for buses, which helps me plan my commute so I very rarely wait for the bus.

  • I use that too but should have been specific that the time between buses is often pretty long.

Western Avenue

Hello all. We are new to Lincoln Square and are really enjoying the area and the community. Has anyone heard of any plans to resurface Western Avenue and perhaps new streetscaping? Compared to Lincoln, Lawrence (east of Western) and some other streets, Western Ave doesn't look so nice.

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

    There was a plan floated a couple of years ago to have sections of Ashland and Western be used for express buses, with center boarding islands. The plan would have significantly reduced parking on the street and the number of places where drivers could make left turns. It would also have increased driving times. Not surprisingly, businesses and residents pushed back on those features, and those plans seem to have gone away. I also think federal transit monies needed were not available, and probably won't be for the foreseeable future.

  • Years ago there were dividers down many of the main streets the city removed them. Daley put them back with plantings. They can be a safety hazard. We watched an emergency vehicle trapped on a street with concrete dividers. There was 4 lanes of bumper to bumper traffic and no way for the emergency vehicle to get through. Just food for thought.

Hi All -

Last Tuesday (the 19th) around 1pm I witnessed what looked to be animal abuse in the area by (what I think) a dog walker. I love dogs, especially Golden Retrievers so this was definitely unsettling. As I look back, I definitely should have called 311 or atleast said something but did not want to cause any more issues.

This happened at the corner of Oakley & Addison. The (presumed) walker came down Oakley towards Addison, away from Waveland, at this point the dog laid down and the walker kicked it a few times. The dog then got up and they crossed over Oakley where the dog laid down again and the walker continued to kick the dog. They then walked down Oakley towards the school/Waveland.

I tried to follow them in hopes of seeing where the dog went to stop by later and inform the owner but unfortunately ran out of space/time and had to get to work.

If you know this dog or the owner, I strongly suggest showing them this video so this doesn’t happen again.

Neighbor Filling Up My Recycling Bins

One of the people who lives in the apartment/condo building across the alley from my house has decided he prefers to use my city-provided recycling bin to the recycling bins his building pays for. I know who it is because a) the recycling waste contained mail with his and his partner's name on it and b) my garage security camera took a video of him walking across the alley with his recycling over to my bins. If this were just a one time thing it would not be that big a deal but it seems to have become a regular habit. Our bins typically get full to the point of over-flowing before they get emptied every other week so we don't need other people's recycling waste in them. I tried posting a polite note on their back alley door and bins asking him to please use his own bins, but to no effect.

Any other suggestions for how to deal with this?

  • chizzleking -- Why 311? Wouldn't you want to call 911, to get the police out there in real time?

Lost keys

I know this might be a longshot but my fiancé lost her keys last night during the 4th of July at Winnemac Park.

We were there for a few hours and left at 9:45 pm and were situated behind the largest diamond field just west of the parking lot, behind the 1st baseline.

The keys include a key fob and a LOTR keychain. Yes, it is a Legolas key chain exactly as pictured here (front and back). $20 reward if found. Thank you!

People walking dogs

keep your dog off my yard and out of my planting. If you want your dog to dig and tear up the outside do it in your yard. The outside is NOT a dog park. Walk your dog, pick up your poop and go home to wreck your yard. Show respect for the community. You do not have the “right” to be abusive and disrespectful to the community’s work to keep it looking nice because you can’t train fluffy. My yard is not open to your dog!

  • Joeflatwoods, your axe has been grinded dear, put it back in your tool box for another post.

  • future alderman future alderman

    if every dog that walked on my landlords parkway had a "bad poop" by the end of ANY day humans would have to cross the street! everyone wants to say "it's hardly ever"-but when 300 dogs stop on your lawn EVERY DAY just 1% is TOO MUCH-and it's MUCH more than 1%---more like 10%
