New West Ridge library growing fast, seeks residents' memories

Here's an excellent article by a reporter familiar to West Ridge, Linze Rice, about the new library at Western and Pratt. BlockClub is a worthy successor to the much-missed DNAInfo.

  • Block club is good; Rice is a good reporter except for one mistake: the senior citizen housing is not "affordable" housing--a euphemism--it is subsidized housing forcibly extracted from taxpaying citizens making their housing more unaffordable.

Lost kitty named Tabitha

Our 1 year old kitten seems to have gotten out of the house. She's an indoor cat and very friendly. Please help us find her. Our little girl is heartbroken

  • Any update? If you haven't already post/look on Lost Cats of Illinois on Facebook

  • No updates. Will try that too thank you

  • I'm not sure where you are at, but I have seen a young cat, who looks lost a couple times around the 1200 - 1300 block of Elmdale. It's only at night, so I haven't been able to get a close look at the markings, but the build is slight.

Anyone know what happened at Devon and California?

Saw lots of police and fire trucks at the intersection.

    In case you haven't learned, someone seems to have mistaken a store for a drive-through and drove into the front of the store. Quite a mess from the photos I saw on Facebook. Don't know whether anyone was injured.

Hello Parents!!

I have full and part time openings in my small group Daycare in my home in W Rogers Park!

I am 27, with dual degrees in early Childhood Education and Special Education.I have been a private Nanny for nearly 7 years to children with special needs and those without, before I decided to branch out on my own. I offer a weekly curriculum with books and activities daily. 2 Healthy meals and 2 snacks. I am just across the street from an open grass area and a short walk from a playground. I have 1 part time assistant and will hire another when needed.

With small group care children remain at a ratio of 3:1*, which means children receive much more individualized care an attention, and are broken up into groups based on age and ability.

With the warm weather fast approaching we will spend outside playing with chalk, at the playground, having water play time, free play, bubbles and so much more!

I have weekly, fultime, part time and drop in rates. Feel free to message me and check out Laugh Learn and Play with Nasha on Facebook to see the space and some of the activities!

******I am running a special the week of June 26th through July 6th*****

Hope to hear from you soon!
