What's going on with the N.R.A. not supporting the idea of raising the age to 21 to purchase assault weapons and banning bump stocks . I've always been a supporter of the N.R.A. but not on this issue . They really need to rethink their decision and make the right decision on this very important proposal . I'm all for guns in the hands of properly trained American citizens who choose to own and carry one responsibly . It just blows my mind to hear the N.R.A. is against this proposal .Common sense alone should dictate the need for this very simple and needed law to be changed. The N.R.A. has done a lot of good work to protect our constitutional right to own a firearm . If you are an N.R.A. member please speak up on this proposal and let's do the right thing . I understand their position on giving up anything as it may show a sign of weakness on their part, but they need to take a good look at the faces of the Florida victims and all the others killed by these guns that are so easy to obtain. This is a very important proposal that must be passed into law. The N.R.A. is a very powerful organization that donates big $$$$ to politicians, lets see who joins this fight and who doesn't . As a voter I'll be watching .

    I'm not a gun hater - but I can put the NRA in my hate column. I'm trying hard not to feel the same hatred toward NRA supporters, as some are sitting next to me at holiday dinners.

Bird Calling

I am by no means a John Audubon, or a birdwatcher. But I noted a different birdcall over the din from the usual chirps, twitters, whistles, chortles, caws and tweets, this almost sounds like a larger bird of prey, different from crows and ravens, louder with a reedy shrill to the HARRRWWWWWW noise it makes. I want to saw hawk or falconish, but the bird remains sight unseen since I’m comfortably ensconced in my bed. With this warmer weather and longer daylight time, I am not surprised but does seem a little out of place for the neighborhood. Maybe I should break out the old DSLR and do a little birdwatching

You could go online to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, and listen to sounds of Northern Cardinal, which has a loud whistle, and if that's not it, check Red-Tailed Hawk, which does have a screaming call, and Cooper's hawk, which sounds like 'kek-kek-kek-kek. If you live near a park it's possible a hawk could be nesting. Last weekend coming back from the Wisconsin border, we saw at least a dozen red tailed hawkssitting on light poles and trees along I-294 and the Edens, some in pairs, which means they're setting up nests.

And then I knew, there had been a murder (:-) )on my front porch, and I'm sure it was not a pretty thing to watch, and I'm glad I wasn't there to witness it. Funny thing, I didn't see any blood. The only sign of blood I saw was a very small piece of bloody flesh, about the size of a quarter. I'm sure the hawk or falcon or whatever it was carried the carcass away to eat it in a safe place.

They did break off the center part of the lock. Unfortunately, we didn't realize this happened until yesterday as we rarely go in and out of that door.

Strangely enough, on Wednesday night I was sitting in my car (not running, in park on the street) on a rather lengthy phone call and police came up to my car and asked what I was doing. Never seen them patrol this area before, wondering if anyone else has had break-ins and alerted CPD in the neighborhood.

Dibs are not only Unappreciated, but Also Illegal

Hey everyone, I know with the snow this year it's a real pain in the butt to dig your car out from the side of the road. But dibs are tacky, unhelpful, and make our beautiful neighborhood look like a dump. If everyone who dug out a spot left the spot, there would be a spot for everyone who needed one.

None of us own the streets in Chicago and none of us can claim ownership of a parking spot on these public ways. I don't even park on the street, but if I see dibs I unequivocally move them up onto the sidewalk in an unobtrusive area.

Be a good neighbor - don't place dibs.

    After reading all the comments I can certainly empathize with various individual struggles. However, it does not change the fact that dibs is an outdated "tradition" that is rude, selfish and ultimately illegal. Moreover, it harms local area business by seriously reducing available parking throughout the City. Dibs spots are typically vacant during the day which is when area businesses need them the most. I'm sure many on this thread will admit they reduce or eliminate non-essential driving when parking becomes limited. So that single selfish act of saving a spot multiplied by thousands of others can equal real economic pain for area businesses. So you had to expel a little effort to dig your car out caused by an act of nature. Get over it. Just like homeownership, car ownership has responsibilities too. You want to own and use a car? Shovel it out. Stop complaining. Stop making excuses. Stop acting entitled. Continued on next post…

    Exceptions can and should be made for elderly and handicapped. Just keep in mind that it's a slippery slope which has evolved into guys not wanting to get their loafers dirty while unloading groceries. And without exception, the worse argument I've heard on this thread comes from dibs supporters who say that saving spots is no big deal, there are worse problems in the world. Yes, sadly there are. There are no words for the violence and mayhem that occurs in this City and elsewhere on a regular basis. That doesn't justify un-neighborly behavior. What a great message for our children. "It's OK little Johnny to lay claim to City property for upwards of a couple weeks a year by using an implied threat of violence and/or vandalism, there are worse problems in the world." By such logic I guess shoplifting should be tolerated because car-jacking is worse. Where does it end?? It doesn't. Removed entitlement turns into real violence, vandalism, or even a mother who was so pissed off that she shoveled snow onto a car that took her space. As we've hopefully learned, it might not have even been that person's fault. Maybe her dibs holder had been removed by someone else hours ago.

    Ultimately, we're never going to agree on this topic. So might I make a neutral suggestion instead. On the next material snowfall, everyone who is of able-body goes out and shovels a spot on the street that is not their own. Preferably for someone who really needs the help. Maybe we help create a new better tradition whereby a red ribbon on a stick means that neighbor needs help getting their car out. Who knows, maybe it will catch on and encourage others. Small acts of kindness. Less acts of selfishness. Diminished acts of violence and retaliation.

Put down the shovel, your heart may thank you for it says Chicago cardiologist Dr. Harry Cohen

The biggest snowstorm of the year is bearing down on the Chicagoland area and while outside may look like a winter wonderland, it could be creating a perfect storm for cardiac arrest. Shoveling can be a dangerous activity, causing approximately 100 deaths each winter.

The biggest snowstorm of the year is bearing down on the Chicagoland area and while outside may look like a winter wonderland, it could be creating a perfect storm for cardiac arrest. Shoveling can be a dangerous activity, causing approximately 100 deaths each winter.

"Most people underestimate how much shoveling can strain the heart," says cardiologist Dr. Harry Cohen of CardioMedical Associates, Ltd in Chicago. “it can be especially dangerous for those who have or are at risk for heart disease.” Shoveling, or pushing a heavy snow blower, can cause a sudden increase in blood pressure and heart rate while the cold air constricts blood vessels and decreases the flow of oxygen to the heart. Together, these two factors can trigger a potentially fatal heart attack. Those who have suffered a prior heart attack, smoke, lead a sedentary lifestyle or have a heart disease, high blood pressure or high cholesterol have an increased risk.

Dr. Cohen advises against shoveling if you have a history of heart disease. If you must shovel, check out these tips from for safe, heart healthy shoveling.

• Talk to your doctor and make sure it’s safe for you to shovel
• Wait to shovel at least 30 minutes after waking up
• Warm up muscles before shoveling by walking for a few minutes or marching in place.
• Do not eat a heavy meal before shoveling
• Do not drink coffee or smoke for at least one hour before or one hour after shoveling
• Only shovel fresh, powdery snow
• Push snow instead of lifting it. If you do lift it, use a small shovel and lift with your legs, not your back
• Do not work to the point of exhaustion. Work slowly and take frequent, 15-minute breaks
• Drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration
• Dress in layers and make sure your head, neck and mouth are covered
• Watch for signs of a heart attack: lightheadedness, dizziness, shortness of breath, tightness or burning in chest/neck/arms/back. If you think you are having a heart attack, call 911.

  • Thank you for this. I have heart disease, and had double bypass surgery. Dr. Cohen is my cardiologist. He is a great man who saved my life. Please be careful shoveling snow.

  • fwiw, a Feldenkrais practitioner we know enjoys and recommends Petra Kolber's "CARDIO FOR BEGINNERS" for low-impact aerobic conditioning (search "CARDIO FOR BEGINNERS DVD Petra Kolber" ).

    Jose, many post-bypass people don't recover their confidence, which can impede their fullest possible recovery. Sounds like Dr Cohen offers prudent guidance and influences his patients towards a positive outcome and quality of life post surgery. If I ever need a cardiologist, he's certainly one I'd consult with.

Don't want to sound like one of those people but some guys knocked on my door Sunday to offer shoveling. Coincidence?

  • George F in Ravenswood displaced New Yorker

    Most of the murders and victims of murders in this city are in the african american community. How many of them do you suppose are here illegally? It's a mistake to believe that illegal immigration causes a significant spike in crime. It has nothing either to do with political affiliation. NYC has a very liberal democratic Mayor, and the state a very liberal, democratic governor, yet they have fewer murders then us, a lower crime rate, more illegal immigrants, and four times our population.

  • George F I question your numbers when comparing NY to Chicago, sounds very unlikely. Even TV depicts people commonly getting beat up in NY going way back. Sometimes TV can show a remblance of reality. Yes, I know that commonly takes place here too. What has become of civilization?

I was just coming down Pulaski from Foster and saw someone allow a child to throw a half- drunk(en?) punch bottle. When I pulled up next to them, they took off as if they knew they were wrong. The reason I say that is because even though it is a bit warmer, someone in an SUV (Grey Nissan Mirano, I think) would know if the window was opened. People, this is the problem: if we don't teach our children to do better, how can we expect better from them? Just bothers me because I pick up trash in front of my house and neighbors, shovel snow, etc, and don't feel that anyone realizes they are in a 'neighborhood' any longer. When did this blatant disregard for others start?

  • Cleaning after others? Endlessly enabling other people's indolence in multiple equally dysfunctional iterations? Modern sysiphus. Greek mythology does not get old over here. Does it?

  • It's not just up to a few to take care of where they live. Yes I notice when I walk around there are blocks with less trash and no broken sidewalks and no pot holes. Then there are other blocks where there is trash, potholes, broken sidewalks. Why is that?

LOST CAT

Hello everybody, our cat Luna went missing on Sunday 1/28/18 and we are asking for your help to get our little baby back home. It's so cold out, so we are really concerned about her wellbeing since she is an indoor kitty. She is cream with a dark face, ears, paws and, tale and was last seen on Wednesday 1/31/18 on Ainslie and Ridgeway. She is very shy so if you see her please give us a call at anytime 312-203-0671 or 312-848-5235
We miss her terribly and pray for her safe and fast return home.
Thank you for your help!!

  • If you call treehouse you can see if they have any colony caretakers that have seen her, or if they can help to catch her.

  • Hi everybody, thank you all for your support. We have been in touch with Paws, Treehouse, CACC and multiple other rescues and have also reported her missing on different sites including Nextdoor and Lost Cats of Illinois. We have talked to colony caretakers and you probably have seen some of the fliers we have handed out. We are doing everything we can to get her back. We ask if you would please keep an eye out for her!!

Vigil With Memorial Candles by DePaul Prep on California

Hello Everyone. I saw some teens with Candles making a Memorial in front of DePaul Prep on California Near Addison last night. I searched all over but could not find any news. So I decided to sign up on here to ask. I was wondering if it was a shooting or maybe a car accident? Thanks for any information.

  • There was a crash with shots fired. Two young men died on 2/1/2016. You can google it. Probably an anniversary vigal.

  • Hello Dave. Thank you very much for your response. That's so very sad.
