    Feral cats weapon of choice for some residents facing influx of rats
    A year ago, it wasn't unusual for Andrea Swank to look outside her Lincoln Park home and see hundreds of little rat footprints in the snow. This year she hasn't seen a single track in her yard. The difference? Swank took in three feral cats, and the results are indisputable.

    That post is referring to feral cats that are not in a community where the colonies are maintained and contains some misinformation regarding disease. The Cook County Feral Cat Ordinance has specific rules to address all of the concerns posed in that article. Please see here for the full ordinance. http://www.whiskersandtailsfoundation.org/info/display?PageID=16827

    1 - Feral cats avoid humans - they do not attack them unless they are being forcefully handled, and they are required to be vaccinated, so they do not spread rabies.

    2. Feral colonies in Chicago are required to vaccinate their cats. "...the species of parvovirus that infects humans is limited to the human species. Viral human parvovirus is a common childhood ailment that is passed strictly by other humans."
    https://www.petmd.com/dog/wellness/evr_dg_parvovirus_across_species

    3. They are required to be spayed/neutered, so they do not breed incessantly breed.

    4. By vaccinating, spaying/neutering the cats disease, breeding and fighting is minimized, while pest control is optimized.

    5. Again, strong odors from urine marking is not an issue since these cats are neutered.

    7. Dying kittens are not an issue in maintained colonies where cats are fixed. Animals die - it's part of life. I see far more dead birds, raccoons, and squirrels than cats.

    6. Any animals allowed outside can get fleas from normal outdoor sources - neighborhood dogs, rabbits, raccoons, opossums all can have drop fleas and fleas can be found in grass and gardens. They exist in nature without having cats around. But the main spreader of fleas is vermin - rats and mice whose populations are controlled by cats.

    8 & 9.Feral colonies do not live in people's attics, sheds, etc, because a requirement of being a feral cat colony caregiver is providing shelter.

    10. Litters of kittens are not an issue with feral cat colonies because, again, they are all spayed/neutered

  • Actually, I'd rather have feral cat colonies than feral rat or mice colonies.

These workdays have resulted in great growth in the preserve, now in its third year. The woodland area has been transformed and a much greater variety of flowering plants can be seen and deer and coyote visit regularly. While the number of waterfowl. is down this year (perhaps due to the unusual weather we have had) overall the number of nesting and migratory birds continues to increase.

As for the work day, there are a number of invasive species–including garlic mustard, white sweet clover, pigweed, bedstraw and others that need to be controlled. We may also begin collecting seeds from the golden Alexanders, starry false Solomon's-seal and perhaps other spring-blooming plants. There continues to be invasive woody species and resprouts that need to be removed.

  • I buy one every year for my car. My neighbor from across the street has two cars in his driveway, but never buys a sticker. I guess as long as he does not park on the street he can get away with it. Is that how it works? Seems unfair to me.

  • From what I can tell, he can "get away with it" as long as he never leaves his driveway. He can receive a ticket when parked on the street or when parked in a public garage or parking lot, or even if he is stopped by the Chicago police for any other reason. Sounds risky to me...

Gun control activism is risk to bottom line, gun maker says

The maker of Smith & Wesson firearms said gun control activism poses a risk to its business, according to a company filing.

American Outdoor Brand Corp., which on Wednesday reported a 25 percent decline in fiscal fourth-quarter revenue compared with last year, listed the "actions of social activists" as a risk factor in its annual report.

Shares fell as much as 12 percent Thursday in New York, the most intraday in six months, and were down 4.6% to $12.62 at 12:13 p.m. Rival gunmaker Sturm Ruger & Co. fell 4.8 percent to $57.45.

    Cigarettes. Drunken driving. Next: Guns?
    One of the greatest public health triumphs of the last century impressively still gains momentum: Millions of Americans have quit smoking - and more will follow. Smoking among adults hit a record low in 2017 - to about 14 percent from nearly 16 percent a year earlier.

TICKS

Of course there are ticks here
They are native to the area and feed on the blood of mice, voles and other mammals (that makes us fair game, unfortunately). Here's a lot of great information on ticks to help ease your concerns. Another interesting nature story is that possums, those less-than-lovely native marsupials, are great tick eaters. They destroy 90% of all ticks they encounter and a single possum may eat as many as 5,000 in a season.

I called the police . I will call the building department on Monday to report the landlord . This is the second break-in in this alley in a week

  • Roger S. Park Teller of truth in a fake news world.

    Just as an FYI, 5800 on Artesian is neither 49 nor 50. It’s Ward 40, whose aldercreature is Patrick O’Connor. Unless Mr. O’Connor has suddenly gone “non-binary”, he is indeed, a he. So, your pedantic pronoun distractions missed the mark, dear NOH poster.

    Back to the subject: attend your CAPS meetings, get to know your beat officers, get to know your neighbors, clean up the trash outside your house or apartment, call cops when needed, this applies no matter your ward number.

    The majority of machine alderman fall in line and use the talking points that shield 16 shots Rahm. Choose most anyone of them and they will pretty much respond in the same way to an incident of crime. It’s rare to hear anything come out of their mouths that seriously attempts to address the problem.

    Helen has been an apologist for quite some time of the local alderman (who recently repeated the standard line in an interview about the woman who was punched on the CTA) But watch for the next loyalist newspaper report or comment by yet another alderperson who will remind us that crime is down the next time someone is raped, assaulted, or shot.

    The insensitivity of the comment often escapes us. Imagine telling a person who has just been diagnosed that cancer numbers are down. It does not address the specific problem. It prioritizes face saving and avoids responsibility.

Internet Service Providers

Moving to Albany Park from Rogers Park next week and need to get internet setup. What Internet Service Providers do you use? I currently have RCN and am sad that it is not available in my new area. I've already checked with AT&T and they can only provide 10MBPS. I need at least 50MBPS. Thank you.

  • We’ve had xfinity for several years w/o problems - except you do have to threaten to cancel every year or two

  • See if AT&T fiber is available at your new location. It's $80 a month, no taxes or fees. It's internet only but then you can get subsribe to Hulu, Netflix, YouTube TV and Amazon Prime TV etc. Won't need dish or cable.

    I have fiber and normally get 800mbps upload and download speeds, makes other providers feel like 4800 baud modem from 1980's.
