Found lost small black and white dog in south shore area

He is missing his family/owner he was found lost on the 77th block of S. Phillips. I'm really trying to reunite him back with his owner. So if he belong to you or if you know who he belong to please contact Kandi @ 708-854-5506. A neighbor also contacted the animal care and control to see if they can pick him up to be scanned and hopefully placed back home. They haven't came as of yet to get him. So if you know the owner they can contact me & if I don't have him in my care I will give you the contact info to the animal control info on him. Thank you!!

    I would love to help search for the family by looking through all the lost reports for Lost Dogs Illinois but more of a description would help, any chance this pup is chihuahua? Here is the link to Lost Dogs Illinois facebook page. Thanks so much for keeping this pup safe and trying to find true family. They should be able to provide photos of them with the pup, along with vet records. You might also want to take to a vet to be scanned for a microchip, any vet with a universal scanner, they don't charge to do this.https://www.facebook.com/LostDogsIllinois/

    Wow, in starting to check Lost Dogs Illinois lost reports there are lots of small black & white pups missing in Chicago. If you can let me know if male or female that will narrow it down, and if you want email me a photo at E.Sus@comcast.net that would really help. Thanks again.

  • Can you post a picture please.

Terrible Landlord

How do you deal with a landlord who does not want to make repairs he promised? We have given him a list, pictures, and he has seen for himself. HE STILL WILL NOT MAKE THE REPAIRS for the apartment to be liveable. What should I do?I just moved into the apartment late June! We are tired of begging him.

  • Cynthia Live...Love....Laugh

    Call 311 and explain to thm what's going on. I did so 8yrs ago..they will send some one out to investigate..let you know about tenants rights..if they find anyth wrong they will get in touch with the landlord in give him or her a violation..and give thm a certain mount of time to fix the problems.PLEASE CALL 311!!!!

  • Update! WE MOVED OUT! He is by far the worst Landlord ever. He never made repairs and the apartment became run over with mice. I did everything thing you guys suggested and it just got worst. The electricity was old, mice were terrible. We would show him pictures and he just a trash landlord.

Some good alley finds!!

There are some really nice pieces of furniture in the alley between Yates and Oglesby mid 7700 block; dressers with the drawers, a wardrobe, a china cabinet with glass in place and wired for lighting.
They all look like quality older pieces, wood drawers and backs, no MDF. Finishes are rough but this is a good find for a handy person to fix up, use or sell!
Garbage day is tomorrow so move fast!!

  • Mickie53 Be kind, and be generous with your kindness.

    Your concerns are probably well founded. While I certainly would never advise anyone to take anything with upholstery or padding, hardwood furniture can be dismantled to clean so I think it’s safe.
    As an ER nurse I’ve seen many a bug brought in on patients and we don’t throw out our equipment like gurneys and beds after they are used! Lol! We’d go broke!

  • Shepisces Caring Resident

    Lol! I shuddered at "seeing many a bug ON patients!". Nurses desrve so much more recognition! Thank you for all you do. But yes, I can imagine the daily cleaning and sanitizing that takes place. I've gotten an item or two from Craigslist. One being a GORGEOUS white chair with beautiful embroidery fabric. I was able to clean it well, no bugs thank goodness, and its now a staple peice in the living room.

When it comes to daily headlines, the black middle class is nearly invisible. The news tends to focus on dysfunction in poor black neighborhoods, confrontations with police, disappointing achievements in urban schools. There's a lot missing from that narrative. To find out more, we talk with journalist Bob Herbert, who wrote and produced the documentary “Against All Odds: The Fight for a Black Middle Class.” He brings decades of reporting and analysis together to explain what African-American families have confronted in pursuing the American Dream.
