BOOKS

Does any organization or individual take books as a donation anymore? or should they just be thrown in the recycle bin for garbage collection?

Ravenswood and Irving Park

Hi all, the police and fire department just shut down Ravenswood north of Irving Park Rd (9:15pm Tuesday 11/14) anyone know why?

  • There was a fire in the uniform company in the 4100 block of Ravenswood.

  • I left 4043 Ravenswood at around 10 and saw four ambulances, two fire trucks, and the police car blocking Ravenswood at Irving. Its odd that something calling for that kind of response wasn't covered in the media.

Be careful out there today - streets and sidewalks glaze ice

I just returned from being out. I was east of Ashland Ave. at about Fullerton. The side streets and sidewalks are glaze ice. Cars are fishtailing and skidding trying to stop. I tried to stop at one intersection and forget it --- my car just kept going and stopped about the middle of the intersection. It was that way all the way until Western, where it's not so bad, but is still wet and looks icy in places.

Bicyclists are having a very hard time of it. They skid if they try to slow down or stop, and then when they put their foot down they slip.

So far the main streets are just slushy and are safer.

    oh man, thanks for the heads up Beeb! I am one who hates driving in the snow, yes i've lived here all my life but i still cannot do it lol. I shall be driving super slow this evening. Stay safe!

CHICAGO - Residents of Chicago's Uptown neighborhood should be on guard after reports of three separate muggings that occurred in just 15 minutes Wednesday night.
The first robbery happened around 7:30 p.m. near West Buena and North Clarendon avenues. The victim said four males attacked him and ran east, toward Marine Drive.
Right after that, another man was reportedly beaten up and robbed in the 700-block of West Bittersweet Place.
Minutes later, the group reportedly beat a 50-year-old man to the ground, but he was not robbed. The attackers ran north on Clarendon. The victim was treated at a hospital.
There is surveillance video of one of the violent attacks. The robbers appear to be between 15-18 years old.
I have been in contact with the investigating officers of these incidents.
As I have recording cameras surrounding my estate on Hutchinson and Clarendon,
I will check to see if there is anything that can be helpful to police. I have reported this information to the police.

  • TS

    Thank you for getting involved and being vigilant. I'm not sure why this keeps happening, almost daily, but we see very little police presence in the area.

  • Thanks for your vigilance. My friend and his pregnant wife have a condo in that exact area, and I do worry about their safety going to/fro work, especially since it gets darker outside earlier.

  • Mute Mute Me

    " I'm not sure why this keeps happening"

    what has changed that would stop it from happening?

    "My friend and his pregnant wife have a condo in that exact area, and I do worry about their safety"

    im not sure if a pregnant woman would be seen as an easy target or just the opposite since if caught there are added charges.

    why would anyone want to raise children in that area? Hopefully they dont plan to stay long!

Injured goose

Does anyone know who to contact about a goose at belmont harbor missing a foot. It seems to be cast out of the group of geese all by itself.

I saw this yesterday but today saw just one in the water honking like it was in distress maybe the same one? Isnt it unusual for them to be aline?

  • @mute, try calling the alderman, when I needed help with rescuing the injured goose I contacted Tim Cullerton and he worked with me (through a series of emails) till it got helped, the dawn information I got, I got from him. he followed up with her to make sure the goose was taken care of.

Update on the Garbage pickups

All, when the garbage cans overflowed on Pine Grove/Sheridan/Marine Drive earlier this year, I wrote the aldermen and Streets and San. I got a lovely letter from Str & San:
"My office received a copy of your recent letter...Thank you for taing the time to report your concerns....the 46th Ward superintendent reported that the baskets at these locations will be serviced regularly.... and more frequently."

  • d3 NOH

    Does the ssa fund these?

  • I have received the same response to my complaints to Cappleman’s office in the early summer. A week later the garbage cans were overflowing again, and this continued all summer and into the fall.

    It seems a little better lately let’s all keep on this.

Mndsgn designs lounge love funk for hip-hop Heads

Fri 11/10, 7 PM, Schubas, 3159 N. Southport, $15, $12 in advance, 18+

    Mndsgn designs lounge love funk for hip-hop Heads
    "It's so hard to read anything you're expressing / it's so vague / we need just a little clarity," Mndsgn croons woozily on his 2016 album Body Wash (Stones Throw Records). The line is funny because it's so baldly inapplicable; everything about hip-hop producer Mndsgn's music, from his consonant-clotted name (pronounced "mind design") to his bubbling lounge funk, is obscure and wavering.

    Before Becoming Broadway's Harry Potter, Alex Weisman Plays a Role That's Close to Home
    Alex Weisman's place is in disarray. Wearing a faded black T-shirt, shorts, and flip-flops, the actor maneuvers around piles of half-filled boxes as he makes his way to the deck of his Lincoln Park townhouse. It's a warm, sunny September afternoon, and he knows it's a final moment of calm.
