Coyotes

They are here. If you have a small dog, don't leave them unattended. If you walk a big dog be prepared and have some form of defense. Since I believe it's a couple. Now those of you that will freak out, DON'T. I had them on video back on October. They are great,. Great rodent eliminators. God knows we need that here. This neighborhood is infested.

They are here. If you have a small dog, don't leave them unattended. If you walk a big dog be prepared and have some form of defense. Since I believe it's a couple. Now those of you that will freak out, DON'T. I had them on video back on October. They are great,. Great rodent eliminators. God knows we need that here. This neighborhood is infested. Anywhere near Jeff Terminal is REALLY bad. Just be alert, and if you see one, make noise, yell at them. They will run the other way. Just an FYI. I watched them for over an hour or two around 6 pm Tonite in my alley. Working on my car. They don't want to be around people. So, respect them and rodent problem will be a thing of the past. They can hang in my alley all they want. I welcome them, we need them people, so don't get crazy. Just watch your small animals, as you should in the first place.

    There all over lately, they've been seen at The Cemetery by Addison & Narragansett, All around Oak Park, Forest Preserve Dr. and Irving. I've seen them by Addison & Austin, Belmont & Harlem running all the way to Addison, watched it from my car. And this is like the 3rd time I've seen them around Ainslie & Laramie. My Mom's in burbs and one morning I opened door to step out and there was a coyote right there. We both scared each other. I stomped my foot and yelled to get the hell out of here and he surely took off. But I think he had scent of her cats. I'm not afraid of one but if there is a group, I'd definitely steer clear. I guess it depends how hungry they are, lol.

  • I have been seeing them around for years. Saw one sitting on the sidewalk by Cumberland Av. and Montrose Av. just watching the traffic go by. Saw a pack of them in the clearing on the north side of North Av. across from where Menards use to be by Cumberland Av.

Might this be a misuse of Department resources for political purposes?
•Alderman Arena's office filed a CR number against any officer that openly opposed his housing development on his Facebook page. Leslie Perkins who is employed by Alderman Arena's office, is the complainant on the CR#.

Arena's office claims that the officers who opposed low income housing, on the Alderman's Facebook Page, are racist. Alderman Arena allowed, and most likely encouraged, his paid protestors to openly threaten law enforcement officers on his City endorsed Facebook Page. Alderman Arena also allowed community members to be threatened, harassed and stalked by his henchmen if they did not support his agenda. Even officers who kept their profession hidden and used screen names, were not safe from the wrath of Alderman Arena.

The Alderman had his staff run the plates of individuals who were present at gatherings opposing his development, get their information and run it through a city data base to find out if they are police officers. The CR number names numerous officers, alleging they made "racially charged comments against low income housing." Anyone who made a negative comment concerning Arenas housing projects, even if it was just comments concerning overcrowding, were labeled racist by Arena, his wife and his paid protestors. Numerous individuals who were threatened on his Facebook Page, a page that he controls and content he is responsible for, contacted the Alderman's office through phone, email and social media, all of which went unanswered.

Even if Arena didn't make the threats against law enforcement, he obviously condones it since he never deleted them from his social media, nor did he condemn them. These officers voiced their concerns as community members, not police officers. Now that the community has spoken and Alderman Arena has been denied state funding for his housing project, he needs someone to blame and who better than the police.

WAY overacting and obviously trying to scare me into thinking I'd done something wrong. I stopped my car and got out. He was a middle aged man, and was talking (or pretending to) on his phone in a slavic language. I asked him what he wanted to do, and he kept trying to pretend I hit him. After about 5 minutes, he said "you can go" and then finally said "give me $50 and I'll forget about it." I didn't give him anything and drove away. A**HOLE!!!!!!

Now, more than ever, we need a new high school at the Read Dunning site. Bridge, Canty, Dever and Smyser are anchoring this part of the NW Side and are a large part of Dunning making this list. Give these parents a reason to stay in Dunning, give them a new modern high school, it's long overdue. The land at Irving and Oak Park is plentiful and has been sitting idle for decades. This should be an easy decision.

    @Paul. They seem to have a better handle on technology than any other real estate company. It's their Ace card really. I rely on their property search site for some RE investment purposes because it contains almost as much useful info as the MLS.

  • Thomas R Resident of Schorsch Village

    I was surprised by the Wrigleyville and Andersonville median prices, they seemed low. Anyone who lives on the North Side knows those areas are more expensive. Those areas are saturated with condos. It depends on how they get their samplings for the median home prices. My experience with Redfin is that their home estimator is usually higher than Zillow or Realtor.com. Keep in mind that the median prices include homes that flippers buy which are of course lower than other sold, turn-key properties.

    Giving credit or blame to a president for the state of the economy after one year is not right.

    If Trump's administration is able to sustain key economic factors (DJIA is not one of them) than we can begin to give him credit. But, until next year's State of the Union, we will have to see. The DJIA is an economic factor mainly for the upper crust including CEO's of the companies measured via the DJIA. I understand that retirement plans are effected by the DJIA, but that, like the economy is cyclical and factored into your lifetime average including the lean years when you shift your money largely to interest bearing investments.A select few are lucky enough or knowledgeable enough to play the market perfectly. (aka insiders and CEO's)

    Job creation, median income numbers, unemployment rates and interest rates are what effect the commoners like you and me not the DJIA. Giving Obama credit for that yesterday or to Trump today is a red herring.

    Now I will say that, in comparing economic numbers during the Reagan years and the Obama years, the recovery was considerably more sluggish under Obama. Both men inherited a catastrophic economy. While the economy has its own engine, the president's policies can assist in the trend (up or down). The economy has and always will run in cycles.

Hello neighbors! We have a crazy cat lady on our street. She has at least 10 cats that roam freely. They are a problem. They spray, they get in my garage, they poop in everyone's lawn.

Surely they know that a strictly indoor pet cat receiving proper nutrition, veterinary care, etc., can and often does live almost 3 times that long. One of my cats was 19 years and 9 months old with medical issues that were well maintained over a long period of time. A friend had a kitty that was 26 years old.

There's a garfield-looking cat that has been coming by my house for about 8 years or so now (Cullom and Long area.) She likes hanging out in my yard during the day. I've always been reluctant to bring her inside because I believe she's someone's cat. (Well fed, well groomed, when it's cold or wet she doesn't show up etc.)

She stopped coming around right after the time that the trapper was catching cats so I figured her owners were keeping her indoors (good.) She's now returned, but looking a bit skinny--she was always very plump. It's odd for cats to lose weight that quickly unless there is a health problem--I tried to feed her, but she's not really interested.

I'm thinking about bringing her inside and possibly to the vet. But before I do that, I wanted to see if anyone knows if she's got an owner in the neighborhood. I tried to put a break-away collar on her that asked for her owner to call me, but she's not having any of that. I have not yet had her checked for a microchip and she is not ear-tipped.

Found Cat Tabby with white chest and paws male

Grace and Narragansett Ave. Very affectionate. Checking tomorrow if microchipped. Posting on Lost Cats Illinois - Facebook as well. Very nice boy - was very hungry. I bathed his chest and paws so his picture might not be a very good representation. In my home tonight and my own cats are in the basement. Let me know if you or someone you know is missing this guy.

  • Hi Belmont Central - I did not bring my phone to work today so I am posting here instead - yes, I am avail Fri eve to meet. Cat is still recovering but should be better tomorrow. We can set up a time - what are you thinking?

  • Just a quick update for all --

    Met up with Bluebelle on Friday evening and took this boy home that day.
    He's a big 'ol sweetie, and we're still working on getting him and our resident kitty acclimated. So far so good! We are going to meet up again this Wednesday so Blue can see his new living arrangements and see how he's getting on.

AirBNB Cleaning

Is anyone in the area interested in making some money doing some sporadic AirBNB cleaning? It's roughly 30 minutes of work a couple times a month. I'd offer $25 to someone I can trust to stop by and clean.

Unfortunately, there is usually only 1-3 days notice and the cleaning has to be done between 11:00am-2:00pm.

Addison & Central

  • Greetings,

    I live right off of Addison and Central. I have housekeeping experience and would be interested in hearing more about this position. I have excellent references that could easily be verified. I would be available immediately. Also, I would be able to work around a last minute cleaning.

    Sincerely,

    Mary

missing cat

our black cat, squidly, has been missing for a few days now. He is a partially outdoor cat and is extremely friendly/cuddly but also very playful and now that he's become partially outdoor is a rather avid hunter of mice and birds.

our black cat, squidly, has been missing for a few days now. He is a partially outdoor cat and is extremely friendly/cuddly but also very playful and now that he's become partially outdoor is a rather avid hunter of mice and birds. He has been missing for almost a week and we are wondering if someone took him in right before the cold snap since he won't keep a collar on. We've seen him with families in front of our house (5200 block of cullom) on a number occasions winding between all the kids legs soaking up the attention.

If someone did take him in we appreciate it (although he will come back to our house if you let him out) but really we're most concerned with knowing whether or not he got hit by a car.

  • There is a guy trapping cats around Chicago and bringing them in to CACC over 40 in the beginning of this month. I understand the frustration of having a chipped pet and not being contacted if they are brought to a facility. I know they are very overwhelmed and it is possible that they may have overlooked some measures in their protocol. I really hope that your kitty is safe and sound!

  • Turns out it wasn't him. :(

Six Corner's Portage Park

Anyone know if they are still building Aldi, Binny's, Starbucks, etc? There's so much potential for this intersection and neighborhood, why does it still look like an ghost town?

  • They've pushed their interviews back to late Dec, think I saw Dec 27, so I'd guess January at this point.

  • Jan 29 is the most recent date announced for Culver's opening. Not sure where I saw that.
