Neighborly Litigation (Chadha v. NPES)

Many on this forum talk about litigating, be it for some unneighborly thing or other. Well, here is your chance to read the behind the scenes workings of the Chicago Way in its entirety (link below - get some popcorn and settle in) and VOTE.

This is the culmination of 7 years of attorney fees and a waste of our taxpayer-funded court's time/resources, in my opinion, of course.

Lakeview greystone with boho vibes asks $1.4M

1431 West Warner Avenue [Redfin]

    Lakeview greystone with boho vibes asks $1.4M
    This light-filled, greystone on a beautiful block between Southport and Greenview is ideal for those who love a perfect mix of rich, old-world style and high-end, modern finishes. The space is filled with kilim-style rugs, skylights, built-in bookcases, and has a gorgeous (and massive) master bath.

    Boho?

  • Jill H 38 years in Chicago, 19 in North Center

    Bohemian chic, probably, because of the colorful rugs and wall hangings. Not my idea of bohemian anything but I'm not a designer.

Have an indoor/outdoor cat? You might want to keep them inside

This guy is trapping dozens of cats on the north and south side and bringing them to CACC. They're trying to work with him to STOP DOING IT, but he seems to be on some kind of personal crusade.

https://chicago.cbslocal.com/2017/11/29/man-whos-trapped-30-feral-cats-says-he-will-continue/

If you let your cat outside, and it disappears, check http://petharbor.com/chicago/

If you are a colony caretaker and one of your charges disappears... check with CACC.
