Keep A Lookout For Robber

I was almost mugged taking out my trash on Wednesday, April 18th in the alley behind the 3500 block of Wolfram St between the 2800 block of Milwaukee Ave.

The man is somewhere between 5’10 and 6’0, African American with very dark skin, a black leather coat and a dark gray beanie. He has a nice complexion (no pock marks or acne) and does not appear to be homeless or on drugs. His clothing was actually pretty nice.

I was almost mugged taking out my trash on Wednesday, April 18th in the alley behind the 3500 block of Wolfram St between the 2800 block of Milwaukee Ave.

The man is somewhere between 5’10 and 6’0, African American with very dark skin, a black leather coat and a dark gray beanie. He has a nice complexion (no pock marks or acne) and does not appear to be homeless or on drugs. His clothing was actually pretty nice.

I called the cops and they showed up within 2 minutes but we could not find him. I’m not sure if he was armed because he had his hands in his pockets so he either was and didn’t want to flash the gun or wasn’t and wanted me to think that he was.

Be careful out there everyone and keep your head on a swivel.

  • Just asking, no disrespect,...how were you almost mugged? You said he kept his hands in his pockets. Did he say anything or approach you? But thank you for the heads-up!

  • Same question.

Massive New School Proposed On Montrose — Community Meeting Thursday @ 6pm

On Thursday April 26 at 6pm there will be a community meeting about North Park Elementary’s plan to build a massive 63,000+ square foot school at their current location. This is three times the size of their existing structure. A related plan to more than double the enrollment will also be put into place. The meeting will take place at 2017 W. Montrose. Please attend if you want your voice heard.

Here are the proposed plans:

    RidingThroughRavenswood- I disagree. I think increased traffic, especially around a school drop off/pick up, negatively affects all traffic, including bicycle traffic. Unfortunately, when parents are dropping off or picking up their kids at school they tend to have only that one focus and neglect to be aware of anyone else, which makes for a dangerous situation. I’m not singling out NPES. Ride by any school in the morning to see what I’m talking about.

  • They may be better off looking for a new location to better fit the expanding needs similar to what Chicago Jewish Day School did. Even with their move still a traffic nightmare in morning. Before any institution or business goes in a traffic study should be required and ensure enough parking.

Gun Dealer Licensing Act (SB1657)

The General Assembly is back to work in Springfield today and we have a historic opportunity override Gov. Rauner’s veto of SB 1657, the Gun Dealer Licensing Act. But, we need you to get it done by calling and emailing your legislators today.

Gun violence is an everyday problem in Chicago and it's fueled by crime guns traced back to Illinois gun dealers. Contact your lawmaker NOW. It’s their one job to keep our families and communities safe. Click image to watch a video and send an email right now.

    Governor Rauner has vetoed the Gun Dealer Licensing Act (SB1657). It's now up to your state legislators to override the veto. Any child killed from gun violence impacts every parent. Sadly, injuries from gun violence are the leading cause of death for children in Illinois.

    Every day for the past five years, Sandy Hook Promise has been doing everything we possibly can to prevent more tragedies like the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary.

    Now, students across the country are stepping up to power a new surge of momentum for meaningful change. They're not just demanding adults take action to protect them from gun violence – they're eager to lead efforts to prevent tragedies from happening in their own schools and communities, too.

    That's why we're working so hard to encourage more students to create SAVE Promise Clubs – where young people are empowered with the tools to help prevent gun violence and sustain efforts to make their schools and communities safer.

    This is one very real way we can help prevent tragedies before they tear more communities apart, so please: Can we count on you to help bring a SAVE Promise Club to your local school and empower students to save lives?

    Click this link to learn more about how to bring a SAVE Promise Club to your local school to empower students to help prevent gun violence and save lives in their communities.

    https://www.sandyhookpromise.org/savepromiseclub

    Students are seizing this moment to push for real change, and it's up to us to support them. By working together, I know we will prevent more tragedies from happening.

    Paula Fynboh
    National Field and Programs Director

    P.S. Would you also forward this message to anyone you know who works in a school? The more people we can encourage to empower young people in their communities to make change, the more tragedies we can prevent and the more lives we can save from gun violence.

I'm having a small surgical procedure done under anesthesia and I need to find someone to pick me up. I don't have any family locally and no one else that is able to help. The surgery center will not allow me to use an Uber or taxi and want me to provide a name of someone they can call when I am ready to be released. I'm looking for services similar to these two (links below) but neither are in Chicago. I don't need any special car or services. With the size of the city, you'd think they'd have something here but I can't find anything. As I start to get older, I do worry that I'll need this more often. Any ideas are appreciated.

Saving Parking Spaces. Wonder why it's hard to find a parking space?

Once in a while you see someone park in the middle of 2 spaces and then later come and bring another vehicle and move the first vehicle back to make room for the other vehicle. It's hard to find parking and then you have people saving spaces or parking their business trucks on residential streets or vehicles that have been left for weeks in the same spot.

    If it's a crime in progress, it goes to the top of the list. A parked car problem is down the list. You may need to call more than once to get to a time when the dispatcher has police available.

    The city should have something similar to "meter maids" who are sent out to tickets or inspect the cars parked over seven days or otherwise parked illegally. . Trained police officers aren't needed for this.

    The response I got from Sen. Durbin:

    Dear Mr. Kastigar:

    Thank you for contacting me regarding gun violence and access to guns in our country. I appreciate hearing from you, and I share your concerns.

    Over 30,000 Americans are killed by guns each year, and this violence takes a devastating toll on families and communities. I support sensible gun safety laws that will help reduce the number of gun deaths in America. I support measures such as universal background checks to keep guns out of the hands of convicted felons, mentally unstable individuals, and domestic abusers. An overwhelming majority of Americans know this is just common sense. I also support efforts to crack down on illegal gun trafficking and straw purchasing, and to limit the civilian use of high-capacity ammunition magazines that have been used by mass shooters to cause enormous harm.

    We can and must do more to keep guns out of the hands of those who would misuse them, and we can do so while protecting the right of law-abiding citizens to use guns in a responsible and legal way for sport, hunting, and self-defense. My wife and I grew up in families of hunters. We know the rite of passage when a parent takes his child out into the woods and teaches him or her to shoot. The hunters I know are good people who love the sport and hate the people who use firearms to terrorize and kill.

    (continuation of response from Sen Durbin )

    Gun violence is a complicated problem, and there is no one solution that will stop all the tragic shootings. Reducing this violence will require dedicated efforts by families, community leaders, law enforcement, employers, faith leaders, and elected officials to prevent guns from falling into the wrong hands and to address the conditions which create violence. Unfortunately, in recent years common-sense legislation to prevent gun violence has been blocked in Congress by well-funded political organizations. But I’m not giving up. I will continue to work to ensure the federal government helps address violent crime in our communities.

Not a super-chatty block - people come and go from the multi-unit buildings and the condos on the corner, so I know few people by name despite being here 10+ years. But everyone's always been polite, no trouble-makers or weird stuff going on. Pretty diverse crowd - our upstairs tenants are black, FWIW. Safety-wise, it's a quiet corner of Albany Park. No visible shady stuff going on at night. It's still the city, of course... know your surroundings, don't be stupid, etc. My only beef with the neighborhood is the lack of green space. I'd love a decent park.

Guys, we are demo-ing our basement, and we found these weird small plastic bags of women's underwear stuffed into the ceiling insulation. Do we have a Dateline situation in our ceiling? What do you think the police station would do if I walked in with underwear and told them I had concerns?

When we were tearing down a wall in the kitchen, we also found a pink pair of women's underwear and some heineken bottles. We just laughed it off. But maybe we shouldn't have?

Why is pink women's underwear hidden in our ceilings?

    Not a surprise to many but I think it's a surprise to the employees, unfortunately.

    The last time I shopped there (a couple of months ago) I asked the cashier if they were closing and she said no.

    I wish all of the employees the best!

    Chicago man freed from prison, given $25 million. He spent his second chance rebuilding his old gang
    The top was down on Thaddeus Jimenez's shiny Mercedes convertible and opera music blared on the stereo as he and a gang associate drove around Chicago's Northwest Side looking for someone to shoot. Just three years earlier, Jimenez had won a staggering $25 million verdict for his wrongful murder conviction.

  • He has 8 more years to go in jail for federal gun charges , but would not be surprised if he's out by 2020 for good behavior, then he'll face state charges for shooting the other pillar of the community whom I'm betting will refuse to testify against him for fear and he'll get paroled for another 5 years or so until he does something stupid again.

  • Fortunately his 'victim' is suing BJ for his last pennies and will be giving sworn testimony that I'm guessing can be used by prosecutors?
