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.
