Hello, i'm getting a waterline install quote for a 3 flat in the Northside of Chicago. Looking for economical referrals if anyone has any. I've already gotten pricey quotes from Apex, and Parks Plumbing but am wondering if a smaller company can do better. Thanks everyone.

Watching @CBSThisMorning, interesting feature on poor water quality. Check out the calculator on EWG’s website to determine the quality of your drinking water. Here’s what the say is in our #Chicago tap water! https://www.ewg.org/tapwater/system.php?pws=IL0316000#.WldvgLhMGEe

My brother went to Gordon Tech in the 1990s and loved the auto and wood shops among other things. It is now called DePaul College Prep. My son is in the 6th grade and we are starting to look at high schools. A couple of items on their website alarmed me.

My brother went to Gordon Tech in the 1990s and loved the auto and wood shops among other things. It is now called DePaul College Prep. My son is in the 6th grade and we are starting to look at high schools. A couple of items on their website alarmed me. One is that it seems that with the change to DePaul CP, they also did away with all shop classes. While my son wants to go to college, I felt it important that he learn to work with his hands as well. It seems so many people go to college only to come out and struggle to find work. Yet I have a friend who is an electrician and he makes fantastic money, and has always been busy.
The other concern was, is DePaul CP a racist school? I see they have a Black Student Union, but none for whites! I do not want to send my son to a racist school since we are a family that is proud of what God made us (I am white, my wife is Hispanic) so we would not mind him joining a group of others that would share like minded ideas about their culture, as I am sure the Black Student Union does, but to have one and not the other worries me in that, this may be a school that teaches that some races deserve special treatment based solely on the color of their skin. Does anyone have experience with DePaul CP? Many thanks for advise. We have a couple of years, but time passes quickly!

I wanted to know if anyone has experienced a never ending car alarm somewhere on Lawrence between Oakley and Leavitt. Today, I was woken up at 7am by this alarm, it is now 9:30am and it’s still going on. Tuesday afternoon and night it seems the same car had the same issue. The alarm went on till 8pm from the mid afternoon. I called 311 which connected me to the police they said they would bring a car out this was a little before 8am but obviously nothing has happened. Does anyone have any suggestions what to do about this?

So tired, two nights in a row woken up at 4:08 and kept awake til after 5 by loud jets flying over - same volume as during the past two days. I understand the new flight pattern trials are going on but this is too much ! Previous two days it was 11:30 to 12:30 am and starting up at 5 am. Hard to guess when to turn my sound generating machine on as we recently had 4 am theft in area ,don't want to be unaware. Are we still supposed to be reporting jet noise thesame

Last night a very friendly black cat tried to follow my husband into the house. I took him in because he seemed scared, so he's in my bathroom right now. Is anyone missing their cat? He's very friendly, sweet, and seems well fed so I don't think he's a stray.

We had the catalytic converter stolen from our Honda CRV sometime between 9 PM Friday, November 24 and 8 AM Sunday, November 26 while parked on Eastwood just west of Leavitt.
We’ve seen posts about similar thefts in the neighborhood during the last few days and we wanted to make folks aware of this incident as well. We’ve filed a police report with 311. Now on the hunt for a shop to get the catalytic converter replaced. Any recommendations are appreciated.
