FOUND: male dog (possible jack russell terrier) near Menard and Roscoe

FOUND: I found this little guy around 10:30am today (7/5/18) running along Menard near Roscoe. He was scared at first, but finally allowed me to pet him. No tags, so I took him to the vet to check for a microchip -- no chip :( He is very sweet, is house-trained, and loves belly rubs. He will be staying with me until I can find the owner.

  • Kudos for being such a caring person. I hope you find his owner. Just be careful who you give him to. There are people who will claim to be an owner who do not have an animal's best interest at heart. Having a full description makes it easy to do. He is a cutie.

Firefighter kneels before football game

Has anyone seen a public statement from Ald. Sposato or Napolitano about this? I know I saw a picture of them at the game.

What do people think of this?

    Black firefighter takes heat after taking knee at police-fire football game
    A political and emotional brush fire is smoldering within a grieving Chicago Fire Department over a national anthem protest that marred a charity football game dedicated to the memory of two fallen Chicago heroes.

  • You're talking about it. His protest worked. Like Paul said, you have the right to ignore it.

  • Where did Pau say that? You consider his protest having worked if people who are it were supportive, but how do you consider condemnation of his protest as working?

Illegal handyman flyers posted on my garage which has two “No Soliciting” signs posted

So, after months of having my two “No Soliciting” ignored and illegal handymen flyers taped to my garage I’ve decided to get some satisfaction.

I called Jose yesterday and gave him an imaginary address about half way down the block from me. He stopped by half an hour later in the alley to look at the garage that “needed a lot of work”. Soon after getting there he started texting & calling me for me to come out. After about 20 minuets he drove away. I then texted him and told him why I just wasted 30 mins of his time. He replied in a viulgar laced text.

It made my day, no it made my week!

What is the truth Ald. Sposato

Yesterday, Nick Sposato posted on FB (in all capital letters for emphasis) that the new school being built on Oak Park Ave was going to be a neighborhood high school. Today I see an article saying that it will be a freshman academy for Taft with selective enrollment for 7th & 8th graders and that Sposato attended a meeting on May 8th where he said it was 90% confirmed. Does anyone know the truth? Are our elected officials purposely misleading the public because it is an election year?

    Freshman academy for Taft HS appears 'almost a done deal' - Nadig Newspapers - Northwest Side Local Newspapers
    by BRIAN NADIG The Taft High School Local School Council at its May 8 meeting received good news about the prospects of a new freshman campus to help relieve overcrowding at Taft. "It's almost a done deal that it's going to be a freshman academy," Alderman Nicholas Sposato (38th) told the LSC.

  • I know when they opened a new charter school in Avondale it was only Freshman the 1st year. Then freshman and sophomore the next till they build all 4 years. I know charter isn't the same as COPS but this maybe why only Freshman the 1st year.

  • RALPH PAWLIKOWSKI I am Chicagoan

    @Chitownliz Yes, that would be my solution as an alderman too. Freshman first year, Freshman and Sophomore second year, etc. It would be a 4-year transition. The reasoning behind that would be to keep the kids in one school all 4 years. That would prevent current seniors, juniors, and sophomore...

    @Chitownliz Yes, that would be my solution as an alderman too. Freshman first year, Freshman and Sophomore second year, etc. It would be a 4-year transition. The reasoning behind that would be to keep the kids in one school all 4 years. That would prevent current seniors, juniors, and sophomore kids from transferring from the Taft North campus to the Taft South campus. If this is the plan, then it should be honestly explained to the public this way.

    I remember when Gordon Technical High School went co-ed. The first year plan was to allow freshman girls in, the second year, sophomore girls, third year junior girls, etc. The transition was smooth.
