Has anyone else heard gunshots these past two nights? I heard some Friday morning then some about 1 hour ago sounded near of Kilbourn and Roscoe. Called in, only Roscoe was swept up and down.

    Sure did hear it. I posted earlier. Several others called it in. Thanks.

    @Alejandro Torres Kilbourn and Roscoe and Kedvale and Berteau. I heard it all the way over here 4200 n. on Lawndale. Definitely not fireworks. I e-mailed concerns just now to the Alderman's web site. I have lived here for 54 years and it has never been this bad. Breaks my heart. Nice to know they are concerned neighbors like yourself. Thank You.

Is it illegal to honk?

Need to vent. Today I was picking up my brother from his friends, I honked 2 times and these idiots (man and woman) who were walking their dog started yelling at me like crazy and said that why I had a phone. I got so mad I flicked them off and they tried to get close to my car so I took off. They were yelling at me crazy.

Neighborhood flyers

Does anyone know who I can contact regarding the neighborhood flyers tossed on our front yard. Sometimes there are three in one day. I always throw them out. I want to take my address off the delivery list. It's almost like getting unwanted calls and hanging up.
4300 block of Kostner ave

  • Thank you all for your suggestions. I did call the phone number listed on the back of the of the add. They are suppose to take me off the delivery list. I will keep you posted. Let's hope it works.

  • Sunny mango you might want to collect the Flyers tape to your garage door & take them to your alderman. Supposedly my Alderman calls these contractors & advises them they're not allowed to post Flyers without listing their contractors number. I even have a "no soliciting" & "post no bills" on both sides of my 5 yo garage door but to no avail.

Doorbell Ringing Near Milwuakee and Kildare

Has anyone's doorbells been ringing from 1 am to for 4 am lately? My family and I are quite worried about this incident. There was no banging of doors, but the doorbells were just at it.

  • Has this happened more than once? Do you have a wireless doorbell? After I installed one I bought at Home Depot, my doorbell would ring but there’d be no one on my porch. I was perplexed for months until I noticed that every time this happened there was someone at the door on my neighbor’s porch across the street. Their wireless doorbell was apparently set to the same frequency so whenever someone pushed their doorbell, it rang at my house.

  • Same here with the wireless doorbell. We had to finally get rid of ours, after we realized it rang everytime there was someone at the door of the house across the street from us. Hope that is all it is for you. If not, I would be installing cameras.

Locksmith needed

Anyone have a locksmith to recommend? A spring broke, causing the pin to drop, making the deadbolt useless. Luckily I have 2 deadbolts on that door, so I can secure my home, but this needs to be fixed. Thanks!

  • NatureNut SE PortageParker since1992

    Tom Surplus comes right away and has very low prices. 773-427-8224

  • If you are at all handy take off the broken lock and take it to a hardware store / Lowes / Home depot and ask for a replacement. If it is a standard lockset it will fit into the old hole. Can't get cheaper than that.

Robbed on Belmont and Leclaire

I was mugged approximately 4am on friday january 26. I was at the belmont bus stop heading east. He asked me for a dollar and then punched me in the face. It was a hispanic male, 5.5-5.9, pale complexion, black hoodie and pants. He stole my green canvas gap messenger bag. It only had medela breast pump pieces but if anyone sees the bag please reach out.he ran south on Leclaire. When he punched me he broke or knocked my glasses off.

    First of all, we do not know that the robber in this situation is a gang member. All we know is that he appeared Hispanic. Second, I was responding to some commenters saying that this is because “ethnics” are moving in and in accordance to CAPS they travel here from other neighborhoods.

    Yes, Chicago has a gang issue that needs to be addressed but not all gangs are comprised only by Hispanics. https://www.nationalgangcenter.gov/Survey-Analysis/Demographics..

    Yes, this incident did not exactly happen in my beat but it would have if they crossed the street. I don’t think that these criminals are looking out for district or beat boundaries so I’m going to count this as my beat.

    I am not disputing people’s concerns, I just want people to speak out with knowledge and the facts. This country needs to invest in ALL our youth. Education and Employment is the key. It cost less to educate and employ a young adult than to pay for their encarceration. It is actually an investment with returns because once they have an education and a job they contribute to the economy and pay taxes.

    This is the last you will hear from me on this topic. Stay safe. If you see something, say something and always strive for the truth.

  • Driving on the 5000 block of Belmont today I noticed lots of L***N Gang Graffiti.
    Do they have to destroy property they live in? Help these people remove themselves.

This first-time speed skater received plenty of advice — to no avail

He grew up near Belmont and Cicero in Chicago, roaming around various parks in the winter with a shovel in hand, searching for decent ice. Times have changed. For one, modern speedskating suits are skin-tight to maximize aerodynamics.

    Have you ever thought you were kinda sorta decent at something only to learn that your performance is the equivalent of striking out repeatedly in slow-pitch softball? Welcome to my world. Not long ago I circled the ice, feeling a bit of a breeze as if I had stuck my head out of a car window.
