I have seen two posts on here about someone in the neighborhood assaulting another resident.that got taken down. I have no idea why it's okay to take that kind of information down, as it's clearly relevant to the neighborhood and all of our safety. There are crime posts on here all the time about attacks and assaults in the neighborhood. Somehow these posts can't stay up? I know that the person involved is a prominent and frequent poster here (initials JL), but that shouldnt excuse that person or create a situation where that poster can sanitize what he did on a public street. Especially when the information is in the public record.

I just don't get it. I moved here three years ago and am sick that someone can assault and threaten a neighbor without anyone in the neighborhood knowing.

    This thread was started on Nov. 5th. - and unless I'm reading it wrong, the threatening message is dated Nov. 22nd - so he had been taking it on the chin for weeks before that message was sent. Again - the message is definitely not okay, but I think at this point, anyone reading this thread might genuinely wonder where the menace really lies. I only commented because I received an EB message today that resurrected someone's comments directed at me from many weeks ago (not sure how/why that happens). Hopefully this will end after tomorrow's (?) hearing.

Technical Wizard needed

I am seeking to hire a person of any age who can be my go to person for all questions technical. Example: teach me how to download and play podcasts, create interactions between computer, phone, tv, tablet, firestick, echo and so on. We are PC and android users, no apple products.

We don't have any kids and neither of us are naturals. We are glad to consider teens/students who are responsible and interested in making some money. Best case scenario is that we have someone on retainer upon whom we can call as needed and will have time to respond or come over. I will pay better than minimum wage.

Lincoln Square residents.

  • I've got a great guy for you. He has been my go to guy for many years now. His name is John Cummings phone 773-412-3867

  • Richard Wolf …It takes two to lie; one to lie and one to listen

    I speak as an IT professional.

    If you want quality help, you're probably going to have to pony up substantially more than minimum wage…especially if you want someone to visit you, in-person, and be ready to take random calls from you…you should expect to pay at least $50 per interaction,...

    I speak as an IT professional.

    If you want quality help, you're probably going to have to pony up substantially more than minimum wage…especially if you want someone to visit you, in-person, and be ready to take random calls from you…you should expect to pay at least $50 per interaction, per hour, at the very minimum.

    I don't want to sound cynical, but I would extremely be wary of anyone (teen, student, otherwise) who would offer to provide you tech support for around $15 per hour…that would effectively be a "too good to be true" deal.

  • Liz Houtz Tree House Community Cats Program Manager

    The best way to get a lost cat back is by setting out a humane trap at the place he escaped. You can borrow one from tree house humane society at no cost, deposit only. Only trap when you are home to check every 15 mins, keep trap covered and never trap overnight

    What's up with the Uptown Theater? That's the eternal question. Most people who have been inside it want it to be revived. Others question whether it will ever happen. City planners see it as a crown jewel that will attract people from all over to Uptown. But right now, it sits.

The building is no longer deteriorating like mentioned in the article...that is Rahm political salesmanship, just like the "children's programming". That is political salesmanship...who is against children huh...? If there is a big market for that then the many other venues would be doing it.

    It is a very fair argument that given the state of the City's financials, infrastructure and school system among other things this theater being restored with public money would offend many many people in other parts of the city.
