Question about possible cougar sighting in Illinois.

If this or any other cougars get spotted again, why will it most likely be shot & killed? How many cougars have already been killed here? Like 3, 4?

Why can't we just (supervise our pets and then) turn a blind eye to it? I'm guessing there are probably even more cougars running around than we even know about. They are just doing their thing and trying to live. Why do we have to kill them?

Hi there, I have a couple of vintage fashion items and am looking for a consignment store. Not a consignment store for modern brand name clothing. Do you know of one?

    VIDEO: Wicker Park Robbery Video Provides Another Learning Moment
    The latest North Side robbery alert from Chicago Police focuses on three incidents reported Friday in Wicker Park. But everyone can learn by watching surveillance video of one of the hold-ups. One of the best ways to train your gut instinct is to learn how street criminals operate. Around 12:45 p.m.
  • This is good advice, because most of us don't notice cars coming and going into alleys. They got a good look at the robber, he's probably a teen from one of the highschools, and I guess one of the teachers or principals will recognize him.

We have a situation. I have been specifically targeted for vandalism and it concerns me that it is related to the muggings of November 8th.
On January 4th at 9:52pm a car drove up and parked across the street from our house on Clarendon (exactly where the mugging and beating took place on November 8th). At 9:54:50pm a young man gets out of his car and walks down our street, at 9:55:45pm he returns to his car, at 9:57:02pm he gets back out of his car, heads straight to my classic 1997 Camaro parked in front of my house on Hutchinson, pulls out a large knife tool, and destroys the passenger side of my Camaro. I have it all on tape but unfortunately he was well covered with hoodie including his face, and the cameras could not pick up the license plate number.
I have a strong suspicion that this is in retaliation from my involvement of the muggings.
I am in contact with the lead detective on the muggings case to see how to proceed.
Let's keep an eye out please.

    No problem Mute. Knowledge is power, and forewarned is forearmed, and any other cliches that apply. BTW I consider something that is still cool after twenty years, and stands the test of time, a classic. Except maybe a Yugo.

Breakfast/brunch suggestions for East Lakeview

I was so happy to find Horizon cafe after Melrose closed down last year for just a good, affordable breakfast with no frills. I was heartbroken to go out in the cold this morning for breakfast at Horizon to find it’s doors permanently closed.
Do any of you have good east Lakeview suggestions for breakfast/brunch? I’m not a huge fan of Anne Sathers or Stella’s Diner and Yolk tends to be a huge wait with sometimes a lack of space to hang out indoors while waiting.
