FOUND: male dog (possible jack russell terrier) near Menard and Roscoe

FOUND: I found this little guy around 10:30am today (7/5/18) running along Menard near Roscoe. He was scared at first, but finally allowed me to pet him. No tags, so I took him to the vet to check for a microchip -- no chip :( He is very sweet, is house-trained, and loves belly rubs. He will be staying with me until I can find the owner.

  • Kudos for being such a caring person. I hope you find his owner. Just be careful who you give him to. There are people who will claim to be an owner who do not have an animal's best interest at heart. Having a full description makes it easy to do. He is a cutie.

Average Gas usage

Hi everyone. My wife and I just moved to the neighborhood and purchased our first home. After getting our first People's Gas bill, I feel like we are using too much gas for the couple of gas appliances we have (especially in the summer). We have an 1800 square foot Tudor Style home with a gas water heater and gas dryer. How many Therms are you being charged for in the summer months? Thanks!

  • Some folks have their billing set up to be a constant charge every month so that their winter hit gets spread out during summer. Take a look at how your billing is set up, if you are on a "budget" setting.

  • We have dual zone heating so each floor is about $57 in natural gas charges in the non-heating season.

Firefighter kneels before football game

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?

    Black firefighter takes heat after taking knee at police-fire football game
    A political and emotional brush fire is smoldering within a grieving Chicago Fire Department over a national anthem protest that marred a charity football game dedicated to the memory of two fallen Chicago heroes.
    https://chicago.suntimes.com
  • You're talking about it. His protest worked. Like Paul said, you have the right to ignore it.

  • Where did Pau say that? You consider his protest having worked if people who are it were supportive, but how do you consider condemnation of his protest as working?

Illegal handyman flyers posted on my garage which has two “No Soliciting” signs posted

So, after months of having my two “No Soliciting” ignored and illegal handymen flyers taped to my garage I’ve decided to get some satisfaction.

I called Jose yesterday and gave him an imaginary address about half way down the block from me. He stopped by half an hour later in the alley to look at the garage that “needed a lot of work”. Soon after getting there he started texting & calling me for me to come out. After about 20 minuets he drove away. I then texted him and told him why I just wasted 30 mins of his time. He replied in a viulgar laced text.

It made my day, no it made my week!

Lost cat.

He got out on 5-5. My cat's name is blue. He is Siamese and Persian. He is a large gray silver smoke adult long hair cat. He has a chip but has no collar. Please contact me if you seen him. He was last seen on N. Nora Ave and W. Grace St.

  • Wow, wow, wow . . . I am SO happy this old boy was found! Skokie Animal Control is great about reuniting animals and owners. If he was stolen, it is good he ended up in Skokie. Geez - someone had to have stolen him - I am sure he did not walk there. Congratulations! I guess he will be more cautious around strangers now.

  • Yes. It's great they care for pets and owners. It's sad someone had to take him. He's doing better though.

What is the truth Ald. Sposato

Yesterday, Nick Sposato posted on FB (in all capital letters for emphasis) that the new school being built on Oak Park Ave was going to be a neighborhood high school. Today I see an article saying that it will be a freshman academy for Taft with selective enrollment for 7th & 8th graders and that Sposato attended a meeting on May 8th where he said it was 90% confirmed. Does anyone know the truth? Are our elected officials purposely misleading the public because it is an election year?

    Freshman academy for Taft HS appears 'almost a done deal' - Nadig Newspapers - Northwest Side Local Newspapers
    by BRIAN NADIG The Taft High School Local School Council at its May 8 meeting received good news about the prospects of a new freshman campus to help relieve overcrowding at Taft. "It's almost a done deal that it's going to be a freshman academy," Alderman Nicholas Sposato (38th) told the LSC.

  • I know when they opened a new charter school in Avondale it was only Freshman the 1st year. Then freshman and sophomore the next till they build all 4 years. I know charter isn't the same as COPS but this maybe why only Freshman the 1st year.

  • RALPH PAWLIKOWSKI I am Chicagoan

    @Chitownliz Yes, that would be my solution as an alderman too. Freshman first year, Freshman and Sophomore second year, etc. It would be a 4-year transition.

    @Chitownliz Yes, that would be my solution as an alderman too. Freshman first year, Freshman and Sophomore second year, etc. It would be a 4-year transition. The reasoning behind that would be to keep the kids in one school all 4 years. That would prevent current seniors, juniors, and sophomore kids from transferring from the Taft North campus to the Taft South campus. If this is the plan, then it should be honestly explained to the public this way.

    I remember when Gordon Technical High School went co-ed. The first year plan was to allow freshman girls in, the second year, sophomore girls, third year junior girls, etc. The transition was smooth.

Water seepage after the rain

Did anybody get some water in their basement after last nights rain? It looks like the water came in to our basement through the wall in 3 spots... did anyone have the same problem? Does anyone have someone they can recommend and give me a ballpark idea of how mich it would cost to fix?

    Hello everyone, I know that some of you were interested in this topic. I was waiting to see if with more rain everything will be fine and not even one drop after Mark came out to fix the cracks in our basement. Flat fee of $275 per crack (which was wayyyyyy less than other companies that I called.) He came out quickly and did the work professionally the same day! We are very happy with his work, glad that he's right in the area so he could come out right away. So here's his info as I recommend him 100% Mark 773-517-2390
