Is the Andersonville Jewel going to be replaced with a Marianos or Whole Foods? It would be nice and more in step with the neighborhood. I venture over there as I eat and visit friends in the neighborhood and the place is seriously dated, and there have been multiple times I have visited the store packed with customers and only two cashiers on shift. The lines are literally halfway down the store aisles. And that is once you are in...
Is the Andersonville Jewel going to be replaced with a Marianos or Whole Foods? It would be nice and more in step with the neighborhood. I venture over there as I eat and visit friends in the neighborhood and the place is seriously dated, and there have been multiple times I have visited the store packed with customers and only two cashiers on shift. The lines are literally halfway down the store aisles. And that is once you are in the store. You have to go out into the Rob Me Dim barely light parking lot. The lighting reminds me of a Kmart parking lot, from like the 1980s. Lighting technology has changed so this lot should be light up like daylight at all times. It is seriously dark and a carjacking/mugging waiting to happen.

I can't remember the name of the Hollywood actress who owned a single family home on California at 5000N. It is on the west side of the street. I think she quit acting and joined a convent?

Does anyone have any inside info on NPL Construction's progress of the water main projects on the Northside? I can't find much in the media. I found some hits on DNA (RIP) and Sun Times about disgruntled aldermen in June/July, but there seems to be radio silence since then. The various ward (e.g., 47th/40th) sites list statuses of specific projects, but not much else.
Specifically, is this as big a debacle as it seems? Are the aldermen continuing to apply pressure to NPL? The long night is coming. What lies in store after the first major snowfall and subsequent first street plowing?

My cat Atlas may be missing. 2100 bloc of W Sunnyside. He and his sister are always at the door and he may have slipped out in the dark when I came home last night. He is very afraid of people including me. He is a rescue cat that was not socialized properly. If you see him please message me. I will post a picture

I lost my keys tonight about 5:30 pm, in the eastbound traffic lane of Leland before it turns south onto Lincoln. I got out of a cab right by the stop sign, so probably dropped them then. Keys have a gold lion key fob, a blue carabiner clip with a mailbox key, some bike lock keys, and several plastic tags including one from Chicago Public Library. If found, please message me ASAP. Thanks!!
