DePaul Music CD Seller

Had a guy come after 9pm and knock on our door and try to get money for a student CD for music at DePaul. We have him on camera going to other neighbors’ doors and swearing and talking to himself. Couldn’t tell if he was casing the places.

City sticker late fee

I've been living in an apartment in Lincoln Park since summer 2016. I never bought a city sticker because I park in a garage. I'm moving to another part of the city in a few months and I plan on street parking. My question is, if I go to register for a city sticker when I move, are they going to charge me the $60 late fee or could I claim I didn't have my car in the city during that time and get away with it?

  • oz neighbor 36 years in LP

    Whether you park in a garage or not, you still should have been buying a city sticker.
    Consider the $60 late fee to compensate for the two years you didn't buy a sticker.

  • SF893 I like turtles

    Just register as a new car or you just moved here. There is no way for them to check how long you have lived here nor will they go through the trouble. F***k the city and their money grabs. Cut the corners wherever you can. Surprised you got away with 2 years, they will ring you up even if you park on the street for 10 mins while running into a store.

  • I think they require documentation i.e. the lease showing when you moved there.

Lost black cat

Hi all, our black cat is missing. He is small, with no collar and a kink in his tail. He is an indoor cat but somehow got outside last night. A neighbor says she saw him at 11:30pm being chased out of our yard by another cat. They ran across Halsted, west on Winconsin Place. If you have seen him please message me. Thank you!

  • @WendiChicago Interested in local news

    If you haven't already, alert all the shelters and put signs up with the photos within a six block radius of your house. Also, leave some of his kitty litter and clothing that smells like you at the entrance to your house. Good luck!!

Property Tax Appeal

Hello neighbors-
I’m sure you’ve all seen your property taxes start to rise. Do any of you have any recommendations for tax attorneys who can help reduce the taxes? I get unsolicited mail from many of them, but do you all have experience with any of them? Thanks!

  • Does Farlap file the appeal for you, or do they only provide comps?

  • Rahul Khare Innovative Express Care - Physician and Founder

    So... it’s not difficult to appeal. What Farlap does is take you through everything by phone: pull up the website, enter your address and pin (they provide this), put in your reason of appeal, put in your comps (they give you the pin #s), and then you submit. That’s really it. The whole process took me 7 minutes (with his guidance).

    Most importantly, he guides you through what will happen in the next few months and what to look out for.

Received a photocopy of this hand-written/drawn flyer in our mailbox (was hand delivered, no envelope). I can't even figure out what the purpose of this message was. Anyone have insights? Should we be concerned?

Belden Avenue Construction - Commonwealth and Clark

Does anyone know anything about the road being torn up on Belden between Commonwealth and Clark? The construction has stopped and now it is just half gravel that is starting to fade away, creating massive bumps. It's very annoying and there seems to be no progress towards completion.

Missing: Gray Tabby Female Cat

One of our community cats has been missing since Sunday from the 900 Block of Fullerton. She is a small gray tabby with a white chest, large yellow eyes and a clipped left ear (to indicate she's a community cat). She also has a microchip.

We have been taking care of her for 1.5 years and it is unusual for her to be gone this long. She is somewhere between 2.5-4 years old and is friendly and sweet to her caretakers but skittish around others.

Please let me know if you've seen her!

  • My only suggestion is to ask your neighbors on Burling, just north of Fullerton, as they have a few community cats. Perhaps they’ve become friends. One of their cats, Fred, looks a lot like this one. Good luck. I found a rat under our grill yesterday so if you find your cat, send her over! 🐀 🐈

    In CDC in 4-D, the Comedy Dance Collective indulges its oral fixation
    In Three Essays on the Theory of Sexuality, Sigmund Freud describes the first phase of a child's psychosexual development as "cannibalistic pregenital sexual organization," popularly known as the "oral stage." During this period, which is said to occur between birth and the age of two, the child focuses on receiving pleasure via the mouth.
