Had an issue with people trying doors along Clark St. Somehow my door got pushed open and ended up with a person passed out on my steps. Would not have known it unless the woman that was with the guy hadn't rung my doorbell at 5 a.m. to try to get in to get her keys. 911 called and police dispatched. They took him out on a stretcher as he was so intoxicated (there was an empby bottle of grey goose next to him). The police treated the lady with the guy very dismissively not interviewing her at all or asking any questions until she mentioned that he was drinking due to finding out he had been diagnosed with HIV a week or so ago. THEN they scrambled.

no report filed just that they requested transport and treatment.

    I'm just impressed by HarleyGrrl's bravery. In this day and age I would be really freaked out if this happened at my home. Tons of compassion for anyone with HIV, cancer, type 1 diabetes, what have you, but also compassion for someone being awakened in their own home by as disturbing an incident as this. Every building in Chicago needs to replace their crummy old doors with security doors. I just went nuts on our condo board for neglecting this after a new owner was attacked on her top floor landing by someone who had come in through our old door that never shuts all the way. Thank goodness Harley did call police. Sounds like this man ran the risk of dying from alcohol poisoning before HIV.

Technical Wizard needed

I am seeking to hire a person of any age who can be my go to person for all questions technical. Example: teach me how to download and play podcasts, create interactions between computer, phone, tv, tablet, firestick, echo and so on. We are PC and android users, no apple products.

We don't have any kids and neither of us are naturals. We are glad to consider teens/students who are responsible and interested in making some money. Best case scenario is that we have someone on retainer upon whom we can call as needed and will have time to respond or come over. I will pay better than minimum wage.

Lincoln Square residents.

  • I've got a great guy for you. He has been my go to guy for many years now. His name is John Cummings phone 773-412-3867

  • Richard Wolf …It takes two to lie; one to lie and one to listen

    If you want quality help, you're probably going to have to pony up substantially more than minimum wage…especially if you want someone to visit you, in-person, and be ready to take random calls from you…you should expect to pay at least $50 per interaction, per hour, at the very minimum.

    I don't want to sound cynical, but I would extremely be wary of anyone (teen, student, otherwise) who would offer to provide you tech support for around $15 per hour…that would effectively be a "too good to be true" deal.

Looking for my small grey cat! Lost near Foster/Paulina

hey neighbors!! im looking for my little gray striped cat Puck. he typically hangs out in our yard at 1635 W. Foster and comes in after a bit but i havent seen him since he went out at 5 this morning :(( im hoping someone just scooped him up so if you hear of anything or see him around the neighborhood please grab him and give me a call 312.874.1570. im worried about my little guy

  • Liz Houtz Tree House Community Cats Program Manager

    The best way to get a lost cat back is by setting out a humane trap at the place he escaped. You can borrow one from tree house humane society at no cost, deposit only. Only trap when you are home to check every 15 mins, keep trap covered and never trap overnight

    I wish Anthony would provide an update. Hoping no news is good news.

Presence Closing

I was in there this evening doing some holiday shopping, and was told that the owners are moving on. Being a guy, I didn't shop there much, but they've been there since I've live in the area. I can't think of any other non-grocery stores that have been on the strip as long.

  • HG - Hmm, I thought they had been there longer. But, as I said, I didn't shop there.

    The two that I especially miss were American Hands, and Paper Trail.

  • HarleyGrrl Why YES! People actually DO live on Clark St!

    it was so sad when American Hands owners retired and closed along with the owner of the Paper Trail retiring and closing.

    Yeah, Curb shows where the cab is, how many minutes away, and tracks it as it gets closer. It also lets you add a note to the driver if you want to.

  • Wazzup not available

    thanks - good to know. I will still use Uber as they are cleaning and nicer cars - but it seems we also have Lyft and Curb - awesome.

Crime Tape at Walgreens (Wilson & Clark)

The Walgreens on Wilson and Clark are taped off with red crime tape. It appears they are looking at the Clothes Donation Box that has been tipped over. My guess is there is a body in there with the amount of Police present right now. Creepy.

    The problem with people with mental illness is most are in denial of their mental illness and someone along the way decided its their right to refuse treatment unless they basically tell you they have a plan to kill someone or themselves. Mental health services declined when rahm took office but then obama added mental health services to medicaid and expanded medicaid so more people could get it. Lets stop blaming Reagan. Lots of things have been denied then reinstated since reagan times.

    Those who prefer to live on the street still don't deserve to starve, freeze, or be robbed of their possessions. They want to be able to use restrooms without being judged (or worse) and have the chance to wash themselves & their clothing. Maybe free lockers so they needn't keep all their worldly goods with them all the time. It is possible to provide these services without having to set up beds and security staff.

Broadway Bank space

It looks like something is moving into the Broadway Bank building. Does anyone know what’s happening there?

  • A.S Living and Playing in Chicago

    That will never happen,I think the Alderman even tried and TJ said no.

  • That's too bad. I think a TJ would be a great addition to have. Even the vacant building where Cheetah Fitness would be a nice Trader Joe's spot too!

Found Bag of Money

Hello,

We just found a small bag of money in our store, it appears to possibly belong to a child. We found it at the bottom of a bin, so not sure if it has been there a while or not. If you believe it is yours or your child's, please send us a message describing it. We'd love to return it to it's rightful owner.

It has something written on it which could also make it seem as though it was left for someone to find. If that is the case, we would be happy to pass it along to brighten someone's day.

Thanks,
Murray & White
