40s actress home?

I can't remember the name of the Hollywood actress who owned a single family home on California at 5000N. It is on the west side of the street. I think she quit acting and joined a convent?

Found: Young gray cat with fluffy tail and white flea collar

Found a sweet gray cat with a fluffy tail. Young and small--very sweet and friendly and feeling lost. She's wearing a white flea collar. She followed my boyfriend home. He found her on Monticello (near Cullom).

    (whew!!). We've put up flyers, and rung a bunch of doorbells, but it seems like he might have been on his own for some time. We thought he was very young, but he is a mature cat just very underweight.

    He's safe with me for as long as he needs--maybe forever if we can (slowly) get him together with our two cats. He's so sweet. I'm taking him back to the vet for a full exam next weekend.

    However, I'll leave this post up for a while in case someone is looking for him. Please let your neighbors know if you hear anything! Thank you.

I've heard that some physical therapy offices will take these and donate them to countries in need, but I'd also love to help local folks if possible. I've checked places like ALS association, Shriners, and other organizations that don't accept these items.

Does anyone know of a local nonprofit that can use these items? If not I still plan on asking my physical therapist if they can donate them.

Thanks!

AAFES to Open Online Shopping to Veterans
From an Army and Air Force Exchange Service News Release

DALLAS, Oct. 23, 2017 — With less than a month until the much-anticipated official launch of the veterans online shopping benefit, more than 225,000 honorably discharged veterans have already been verified to shop at online military exchange websites when the sites open to veterans Nov. 11.

The Army and Air Force Exchange Service online shopping benefit is the first military exchange benefits expansion in nearly 30 years. Beginning on Veterans Day, America’s 18.5 million veterans will be able to shop online at the military exchange websites: ShopMyExchange.com, shopcgx.com, mymcx.com, and mynavyexchange.com.

Shopping the military exchanges online provides veterans an opportunity to reconnect with their military community, allowing these soldiers, airmen, sailors, Marines and Coast Guard “members for life” to save money with tax-free shopping and military exclusive pricing while also supporting critical military quality-of-life programs.

As we mourn the victims of this unprovoked act of violence, we pray for healing and comfort for all the family members and loved ones who are grieving.

As a mark of respect for the victims of this senseless act of violence perpetrated on November 5, 2017, by the authority vested in me as President of the United States by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, I hereby order that the flag of the United States shall be flown at half-staff at the White House and upon all public buildings and grounds, at all military posts and naval stations, and on all naval vessels of the Federal Government in the District of Columbia and throughout the United States and its Territories and possessions until sunset, November 9, 2017. I also direct that the flag shall be flown at half-staff for the same length of time at all United States embassies, legations, consular offices, and other facilities abroad, including all military facilities and naval vessels and stations.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this fifth day of November, in the year of our Lord two thousand seventeen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-second.

Greetings My Neighbors,

Saturday, November 11 is Veterans' Day. On this very special US holiday, we celebrate all of our living veterans who have served or are serving in any branch of the military, active, reserve or National Guard, peacetime or wartime. We also take time to remember our POWs and MIAs in active hope of their imminent return to their loved ones and our nation's soil.

Everybody can take part in Veterans' Day activities. Here's how in four steps....

1) Thank a veteran. If you do not know a veteran, head out to one of the many Veterans' Day ceremonies as you will surely be able to thank a veteran there.

2) Support a veteran. You can make a monetary donation to a wide variety of veterans' organizations. A good local organization right here in the Northwest Area is Chicago Veterans. chicagovets.org. You can also Google for other agencies to support.

3) Remember a veteran. Because Veterans' Day is about those veterans still living, we read the names of our POWs and MIAs. You can do that by going to the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency here: dpaa.mil. Once there, select "Our Missing" and choose the list by war/conflict and then the state. You can also search the list by name as well as select names by branch of service. Take a few minutes to read the names.

4) Join with veterans. There are numerous Veterans' Day ceremonies going on. Give it a search for one near you. All are welcome to attend the annual Edgebrook Community Association Veterans' Day Flag Ceremony on Saturday, November 11 at 4 PM at Kinzua, Hiawatha and Lehigh. For the first time, we'll be raising the POW/MIA flag over Edgebrook. Check social media and the ECA website for more information as it comes out.

That's it. I hope you are able to join in Veterans' Day 2017. Questions? Please ask...Jac Charlier at jac.charlier@gmail.com.

RE: Our accreditation is reaffirmed by HLC

I am very happy to announce today that Northeastern Illinois University has earned a Reaffirmation of Accreditation by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC). We will soon issue a press release about this.

Our entire University Community is to be commended for this collective achievement, recognizing our professionalism and dedication to the mission of Northeastern and our students.

HLC follows a stringent and exhaustive process to determine whether an institution of higher education receives accreditation or reaffirmation of accreditation. It is based on five criteria that include: mission, institutional effectiveness, teaching, and assessment of student learning. HLC, which accredits degree-granting post-secondary educational institutions in the North Central region, is scheduled to conduct its next reaffirmation of our accreditation in 2027-2028.

I especially want to thank the following people for the years of hard work and preparation that led to this successful outcome: Maureen Amos, Jennifer Banas, Katrina Bell-Jordan, Emily Booms, John Butler, Ruth (Breckie) Church, Shayne Cofer, Nont Dhiensiri, Craig Duetsch, Charles Funk, Marianne Hanna, Daniel Lopez, Blase Masini, Meagan Mitchell, Kristine Pierre, Asma Raouf, Victoria Roman-Lagunas, Kimberly Sanborn, Barbara Sherry, Dan Weber and Toula Wellbrook

I hope that today's news gives us the hope and optimism we will need to forge ahead and position ourselves for a bright future. All of this, of course, is in service to our students, who we hope will join us as we take pride in this accomplishment.

Last January, I responded to a request from the Alderman's office for volunteers to work on this year's capital improvement plan. This process is called Participatory Budgeting (PB). In my first meeting, some 20+ residents attended. Following orientation, we were charged with reaching out to the community for input on the capital needs of the Ward.

The PB volunteers organized the input into categories. Once organized, the community input tended to fall into four categories. To fully consider each category, the PB volunteers divided into 4 committees, one for each category. The task was to study each recommendation and vet them for appropriateness given City capital improvement guidelines and the cost of each recommendation. Determining cost was fairly easy as the City's capital funds can only be committed to approved vendors by the City and at the City agreed upon cost.

I served on the Beautification Committee. Our Committee had 37 recommended items to consider. By the September 15th deadline, we narrowed the list to a final four recommendations. I am rather pleased with the work our small Committee did. The final four recommendations were ours and ours alone.

As volunteers, if residents don't vote, our work was in vain. Thus, I encourage you to vote. The first vote you will cast is one determining the percent of the one million capital dollars to be spent on Streets. If you do not like any of the PB's sixteen recommendations you are free to vote for 100% of the budget to be devoted to Streets. Similarly, you are then asked to vote for up to six improvement projects. If you can't support more than a few of the projects, vote for a higher percent to be allocated to Streets and Alleys.

Independent of your political preferences, consider volunteering for next year's PB process. I enjoyed meeting with fellow Ward residents and found the experience illuminating in terms of community needs and how the City works.

Very odd encouter tonight around 8pm with two rather LARGE racoons acting like gansters(wish i was kidding). One climbed out of tree on the South side of farragut and went into someones front yard bushes so me and my dog crossed the street to avoid the thug(he did stare us down). Smart right, or so i thought. As im walking and watching the south side of street, i hear a scrambling of claws on bark directly in front and to the left of me and watched in horror as his bigger and badder partner in crime LANDED RIGHT IN FRONT OF MY DOG on the sidewalk. I sceamed(Im a soprano screamer so glass was breaking somewhere), yanked my dog hard back towards me and watched as this bandit hopped in the air in fear(i think my scream scared him off his plan to eat my dog) and he bolted across the street to meet up with his cohort. At that point i wasn't sure how many more there might be so i yelled my dogs name and said RUN!! We took off like lighting(well at a fast trot), but my dog kept checking behind us to be sure we weren't being followed.....in all seriousness....WATCH OUT. This really happened, and a smaller dog could have been seriously harmed. Please spread the word. DESCRIPTION: Grey body fur, black stripes, black mask around beedy eyes, fat, sharp claws, working in tandem, north and south sides of west farragut, 2100 block(alley going West to Levitt).

Warning! Fox spotted in Ravenswood Gardens Area!

At about 8:25 PM Friday October 6, I stepped out with my dog for our nightly walk when I suddenly spotted a FOX standing on the NE corner of Rockwell and Sunnyside. It just stood there staring at us as we were abut 20 feet away. I immediately scooped up my small Jack Russell Chi and held under my arm. The fox walked away after about 3 minutes and continued southward on Rockwell towards Montrose. I called 911 and they...

The fox walked away after about 3 minutes and continued southward on Rockwell towards Montrose. I called 911 and they said they would dispatch police/animal control.
So this is a warning to small pet owners as myself to be careful in this area if walking at night...do not take your eyes off your small pets or let loose if in this area!

  • smartypants Be Nice

    Thank you OP. People should watch their tiny dogs if off leash, but as Jill so eloquently stated, coyotes are rarely dangerous so just give them some space. As for rats and rabbits, go get them Mr. Coyote. We are overrun and need to balance out.

Parking in Albany Park

My wife and I recently purchased a home in Albany Park that has two gravel parking spots in addition to a garage. We'd like to rent out the gravel spots as we don't need them, but we're unsure as to how to go about doing this. Do people typically use a contract for this? How much do spots go for in the area (an internet search didn't turn up any comps)? Any advice folks may have would be appreciated.

  • Hello, I am looking for parking at Kimball and Lawrence. Please let me know if you know of any space.

  • KEM Albany Park

    I am looking for a parking spot near Lawrence & St. Louis. Happy to walk a bit. I know this initial post is about a year old, but i now have a car.

HONORING THE VICTIMS OF THE TRAGEDY IN LAS VEGAS, NEVADA

- - - - - - -

BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

A PROCLAMATION

Our Nation is heartbroken. We mourn with all whose loved ones were murdered and injured in last night's horrible tragedy in Las Vegas, Nevada. As we grieve, we pray that God may provide comfort and relief to all those suffering.

As a mark of respect for the victims of the senseless act of violence perpetrated on October 1, 2017, by the authority vested in me as President of the United States by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, I hereby order that the flag of the United States shall be flown at half-staff at the White House and upon all public buildings and grounds, at all military posts and naval stations, and on all naval vessels of the Federal Government in the District of Columbia and throughout the United States and its Territories and possessions until sunset, October 6, 2017. I also direct that the flag shall be flown at half-staff for the same length of time at all United States embassies, legations, consular offices, and other facilities abroad, including all military facilities and naval vessels and stations.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this second day of October, in the year of our Lord two thousand seventeen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-second.

Dog wandering in neighborhood

Dog - found but not able to catch, or see the tag of a dog that has been wandering around my neighborhood, I think the last few days it has been around barking. It is lighter brown short hair, medium to strong build, upright ears that flop over, maybe part boxer. Has a collar - cubs or sox insignia on it. If you are missing this dog, it is around my neighborhood, 4500, 4400 block of Monticello and Central Park. I was unable to approach the dog which was barking continuously.
6pm Thursday.
