For anyone interested in helping restore Monarchs by planting milkweed; not all milkweed offers full life-cycle Monarch support (not all gardeners/naturalists know the distinction). All types of milkweed will attract pollinators/butterflies.
But only Common Milkweed (Asclepias syriaca) supports the full Monarch lifecycle; as the necessary food source for caterpillars of the Monarch butterfly that feast on its leaves.
Never saw the visitor to our garden, but we found its caterpillars! (pic)

Has anyone seen a public statement from Ald. Sposato or Napolitano about this? I know I saw a picture of them at the game.
What do people think of this?

I need a bunch of small repairs done on my house that no contractor is interested in.
The small back porch needs to be replaced and my garage door opener is messed up.
Anyone in the neighborhood do small jobs for people? I'm close to Irving Park and Laramie.

Has anyone else been bothered by the noise of a rooster crowing all day long in the area? I don't know precisely where this rooster is located, but it's pretty much driving me crazy just as would the sound of an incessantly barking dog. I have no problem with people owning roosters or chickens in the city, but there needs to be some consideration for the noise, and I believe there are humane and inexpensive ways to reduce the noise...
Has anyone else been bothered by the noise of a rooster crowing all day long in the area? I don't know precisely where this rooster is located, but it's pretty much driving me crazy just as would the sound of an incessantly barking dog. I have no problem with people owning roosters or chickens in the city, but there needs to be some consideration for the noise, and I believe there are humane and inexpensive ways to reduce the noise a rooster is able to make.
I don't want to call the police, because they have much more important things to be dealing with than a silly rooster, but has anyone else been bothered by this? I'd be more than happy to help it's owner make a rooster collar for it, if they were willing.
Any advice or guidance for dealing with something like this would be appreciated.

Instead of leaving a vacant parcel of land which they demolished buildings on to make way for the Equinox Hotel, Midwest Related set up a pop up market with shipping containers until they are able to start construction. This is what responsible developers do. HINT HINT Clark Street. Granted Clark Street would have to fill in that hole!

Our cat, Buzz, got out of the house this morning and we have been unable to locate him. On LeClaire between Berteau and Belleplaine. He is VERY friendly and unfortunately was not wearing his collar. He will come to his name (Buzz) when called. If anyone sees him please let us know. He is all gray - and has long fur with green eyes. We already miss him dearly and hope he returns by the end of the day.

I came across either a dead of dying small grayish brown bat on the 4300 block of Lavergne I called 311, and was in formed that Animal Control would be immediately dispatched. The operator said they consider bats a priority because they can carry rabies.
A few years back, the area received a post card in the mail from a government agency (CACC?) that a bat in the neighborhood had tested positive for rabies.
