Injured goose

Does anyone know who to contact about a goose at belmont harbor missing a foot. It seems to be cast out of the group of geese all by itself.

I saw this yesterday but today saw just one in the water honking like it was in distress maybe the same one? Isnt it unusual for them to be aline?

  • Mute Mute Me

    I dont know anything about birds. I just know some animals alienate other animals who are weak or sick. This goose oftentimes would be alone while a large group of other geese would be all bunched up together not far away. I also would see a goose alone in the same area in the water honking wildly. Again i dont know if that means it was in distress or not.

  • the others probably did oust it... sad...

Longtime pediatrician bids farewell to Gary clinic

Barthelemy, a pediatrician, will continue to see patients at Marram Health Center, 3229 Broadway, about 4 miles south in the city's Glen Park neighborhood.

    Longtime pediatrician bids farewell to Gary clinic
    After more than four decades, Dr. Douge Barthelemy walked into the Maternal Child Health Care Clinic for the last time. Clad in a three-piece suit, he smiled warmly and chatted with patients and former staff in a small room with food set aside for a goodbye party.

"Future Stars"

Anyone see the Future Stars out in Lakeview asking for money? Future Stars is supposedly an organization that helps young adults go to college. You're asked to provide a check or cash of $20 and receive a Tribune subscription. I haven't been able to find anything on this scholarship online. Is it a scam? Has anyone else experienced this?

  • I signed up for this once, and never received anything. In the end I had to call in to the Tribune to ask if they knew anything about it - they didn't, and had no record of a subscription under my name. Not necessarily saying it's a scam, just that my experience was poor.

    Oddly enough i find my elderly clients always have their walkways shoveled and salted. What a nice gesture victor. When i see posts looking for someone ill send them your way. I thought of this thread today as i walked a large elderly dog whos guardian fails to see its his dogs time. The dog slipped on the ice as he can barely walk on clear walkways. Then i remembered how i used to walk in lincoln park and see a blind woman everyday walking from clark to orchard and how upset i couldnt help her navigate as i was walking 2 large dogs myself but st hilary would not have their sidewalks shoveled or salted. Some peopl3 have a hard time walking without heels or snow or ice to navigate.

    Thanks Mute! and I hope that elderly dog has the love and attention it deserves. Thanks for being a caring person! keep trucking babe

Is that man still trapping feral cats around the city?

It was on the news a few days ago http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2017/11/30/chicago-man-trapping-cats/ but I have not heard any updates.

I'm not sure how I feel about what he's doing. On one hand, I do not like the thought of half a million cats roaming the streets, and killing birds, and freezing to death.

But on the other hand, it is sad that they are going to an over crowded kill shelter.

Just curious to know if he is still at it?

    Chicago Man Trapping Cats Hopes To Get City's Attention
    CHICAGO (CBS) - A Chicago man, who has trapped more than 40 cats this week, was back at it on Thursday. Chicago's Animal Care and Control (CACC) asked Disgrace Felyer to stop, and even issued a warning to cat owners, or those who care for feral cat colonies, to keep their feline friends indoors.

    The pest abatement program I was referring to had to do with pigeons and the barbed and sharp wires around CTA train stations and other areas. I didn't mean to at all suggest that birds of prey were being purposely used as part of any pest abatement program. My aim was simply to point out some problems with the overgeneralized outdoor cats vs birds argument.

    These articles reference Bald Eagles being sighted in Chicago:

    http://chicagotonight.wttw.com/2017/03/23/bald-eagles-spotted-near-o-hare-signal-comeback

    If the sightings were technically in Chicago suburbs, and not in metro Chicago itself, I apologize. I'm not familiar with the technical boundaries between city and suburbs.

    I see it didn't take long for this to turn into a thread full of comments about the alleged benefits of having non-native predators like cats running wild in the city. The thread topic really is about this guy who is acting within the law to trap illegally free-roaming house cats (not ferals, even) and turning them in to CACC, which is supposed to (but clearly can't) accept them.

    Perhaps we should also talk about the fallacy that no-kill shelters are an actual solution to those which euthanize animals which cannot be adopted out. Because that's another thing that this trapper is demonstrating.

Painter Reccomendations

I had my condo painted a few weeks and the painter did a horrible job. He didn’t patch holes, didn’t use dropcloths, and didn’t paint the ceilings (this is an abbreviated list of what went wrong). I contacted Paintzen to get a quote and they said they would have to repaint everything, which I would rather not do.

  • I decided to go with Chicago Painters, Inc (http://www.chicago-painters.com) and they're coming on Monday. They came out for a quote last Saturday and were great and didn't try to upset.

    I decided to go with Chicago Painters, Inc (http://www.chicago-painters.com) and they're coming on Monday. They came out for a quote last Saturday and were great and didn't try to upset. I asked about painting the kitchen cabinets and they said it wouldn't be worth it, since the paint would come off due to the type of cabinets. They gave a little discount if I booked before March and with that discount the whole job is about half of what I was paying the other company. I'll let everyone know how it all turns out, but so far their office manager and dedicated project manager has been extremely helpful and professional.

  • Great! I haven’t seen you this happy in a while. We’re looking forward to your follow up message!
