Lakeview -- are the stores open New Years day?

Hi everybody, I wasn't paying attention. Are Whole Foods, Jewel Walmart and other stores open today?

  • Check out websites. Almost all list their store hours on the holidays.

  • Yes...but you have to scour for the locations and there are varying hours with many; like Whole Paycheck (oops...Whole Foods). S0, I figure, just call the location.

Police letting crazies loose

http://www.cwbchicago.com/2017/12/lakeview-man-brandishing-ax-claims-he.html?m=1

This statement in the article
"Police cannot arrest someone based on anonymous complaints" is new to me.

    Lakeview Man Brandishing Ax Claims He Did It Because Of Trump - And Cops Let Him Go
    A Lakeview man was released without charges Saturday evening after he told police that he took out his newly-purchased ax on a CTA bus "because of our current president." Multiple 911 callers reported seeing a white male in a blue and white plaid shirt carrying an ax or waving an ax on the street near the 1300 block of West Wellington shortly after 5 p.m.
    http://www.cwbchicago.com
  • This story makes no sense. Buying an ax from Menards is perfectly legal. Taking the bus with Menards purchases is perfectly legal. How does Trump fit into this story? Trump wants to subsidized coal. An ax is used for chopping wood. This man wants to heat his house using firewood instead of natural gas, something that would please Trump because clean energy is a goal for Libtards and others who hate 'Merica. And now you know the rest of the story...

  • BettyR Northcenter

    If the man with the ax did not do anything wrong and there is not a legitimate complaint against him, the police can’t do anything.

    Trump was in the story because allegedly the man with the ax brought up his name.

    Way to go off track, Mark Jones.

Homeless underneath the Addison viaduct

Hi everyone, I notice there is a homeless encampment forming underneath the Addison viaduct. Who do we contact to get them service?

  • Well something has to be done, because at first there was one and now there are two homeless. Soon we'll have a whole encampment.

  • Nora H 15 year Lakeview resident, member ELVN

    Maybe reach out to the Lakeview Food Pantry in addition to food they connect people to services,

  • Jeffrey Littleton Sheridan Park Neighbors Administrator/Local Artist

    I've sent out word yesterday to some people who are going to reach out.

Found keys

I found a set of several keys, including a car key, in the street on Halsted just south of Belmont. Please contact me if you believe these are yours. Thanks!

  • I second what Ed H. said. It is especially important in the freezing cold when someone could be locked out of their house and/or car with nowhere to go. If it's cold out you could be endangering someone's life thinking you're doing a good deed.

  • Ed H. 5 year Lakeview resident

    Sounds like you made a good effort EBChicago. Taking the keys to the gym was probably the best move. That's a sure link to the owner. Hopefully the front desk staff cared enough to find the owner.

Chase at Waveland robbery

This is an FYI- today, Sunday at approximately 1pm a women was robbed in the atm vestibule, the door was not locking. 4 African American offenders, one very short were spotted at Center on Halsted - we spoke to security guard there. Walking down Grace going north by Anshe Emets security guard. Pants hanging down and red underwear were descriptions from all who saw them. Victim was not reporting at time as she had some place to be. We had walked into this chase after it happened. Center was calling police. I called Chase to get lock fixed. Just trying to keep everyone informed in the absence of DNA info.

"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.
