Lost keys with library tag

Hi, I lost part of my keychain last weekend either near Sunnyside/California or near California/Diversey. It's just a ring with a black Honda key and a house key on it, with a Chicago Public Library card tag as well. Just thought I'd check and see if anyone picked it up - it was a week ago, but thought it was still worth it to check.

  • Did you check with the library system to see if anyone turned them in...I think if I found them, that is what I would do...

  • Do you have a valid phone number or email address on file with the library. They will usually try to contact you if keys are turned in to them, but sometimes the contact information is outdated.

  • A.S. a.s.

    Unfortunately, I already called a few nearby libraries last week when it happened - should've mentioned that. They didn't have anything in the system about it being turned in. Bummer.

Dead Body Found Down the Block

A week ago today I was walking to the local grocery store near Belmont and Knox. As I approached the corner I noticed a news man taking video behind the senior center. My initial thought was that perhaps he was doing a story about the senior home. But when I returned from the store I noticed many more news reporters had joined the scene. At this point I questioned the first reporter I encountered. He mentioned that a dead man...

A week ago today I was walking to the local grocery store near Belmont and Knox. As I approached the corner I noticed a news man taking video behind the senior center. My initial thought was that perhaps he was doing a story about the senior home. But when I returned from the store I noticed many more news reporters had joined the scene. At this point I questioned the first reporter I encountered. He mentioned that a dead man was found in the alley shot to death. Which that alone turned out be false to some extent. As I continued down the block I encountered another reporter at the other end of the alley off of Barry Ave. At this point I was a little more surprised because we was getting a lot closer to my residence. I said to him, "I hear it was fatal, any specifics as to what happened?" And he said that they found a man dead in the alley but no one knows what was the cause of death. He said he even walked the alley to see if he noticed a sign of the crime scene but could not pinpoint the spot where the body was found. There was no blood on the ground or anything, not even yellow tape. I mentioned that the prior reporter said it was a gun wound. And he said that no one really knows, that his report indicated that the man was beat to death and found a couple hours earlier lying in the alley.

The Tribune report:

https://www.google.com/amp/www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/ct-met-man-found-dead-in-alley-040818-story,amp.html

That was it! I never heard an update. And this startles me to the core because my grandchildren and I live right down the street from this crime scene. For all I know we have a murderer on the lose in the neighborhood!

Does anyone know who to reach out to to find out more? I'm curious to know if they determined who the individual was? Cause of death? Was it a local resident? Was it gang related? Was it someone that may perhaps been murdered elsewhere and just dumped in the alley? So many questions are unanswered.

  • Yes, just as Bellhome says... go to your local police station or call them and tell them of your concern and questions. Each station has its own number.
    You never mentioned there were any cops around just reporters. (?!) were the police there when you approached each reporter you confronted?

  • Clef in Jeff Park, no now that you mention it I didn't see any officers around. Then again, the police were alerted to the body sometime around 7:30am and when I walked by it was already around 10:15am. I don't know if that was enough time for them to conduct their investigation though.

Hit and run on long 3800

Anyone seeing the accident on long 3800 block black car running on rim 730 this morning during rush police followed rim track to grace and Laramie Must have garage. Right around there-right front end damage

  • PortageRules Love Portage Park!

    Long between Grace and Addison is nothing more than an express way between Central and Laramie. Most cars accelerate thru the "stop" signs with some passing cars while stopped. What is most surprising is that there isn't as many incidents as one would think given just how bad it is....

    Long between Grace and Addison is nothing more than an express way between Central and Laramie. Most cars accelerate thru the "stop" signs with some passing cars while stopped. What is most surprising is that there isn't as many incidents as one would think given just how bad it is. It's just a matter of time until a small child gets nailed at one of these useless intersections. I'm not a round a bout person, but to see 9 out of 10 cars blow right thru these signs is shocking and something really needs to be done. Especially, given the proximity of Gray School = 2 blocks.

  • Can't agree with you more cars ignore all stop signs from Waveland to Irving.

Mailbox dropboxes?

  • Go to USPS.com. Click Quick Tools, then USPS Locator. Use the drop down menu under collection types and pick drop box. Enter your zip code and it will give you a map and addresses.

Garage space needed for scooter

Hi there!

I am moving to the area at the end of the month and am in search of a secure parking situation for my scooter. After having my first scooter stolen in 2016, I am no longer willing to park it on the street overnight. With scooter season rapidly approaching, I'm wondering if anyone has (or knows someone who has) some garage space available that I could rent. I live near Milwaukee & Belle Plaine - ideally it would be within reasonable walking distance of my place. Thanks!

  • check with new neighbors, either go to their door or if they do not answer put an envelope with a request on their door. best to get something real close to where you are going to be

  • If you do have to park on the street, I recommend getting a disc brake lock. They are relatively cheap and very effective.

Take Out Containers

A while back someone posted that they had a lot of plastic take out containers with lids and they were wondering if anyone had a use for them as it seemed a waste to pitch them. A person posted that her friend could use them as she worked to feed individuals in a shelter in the Milwaukee area I believe. I have been giving them to her but her friend has now moved. Does anyone have any thoughts on who/where might be able to use these.

  • Lugo 30+years Logan-Hermosa

    Are they for hot foods?
    I have a friend that feeds the homeless. I can ask her.

  • Lugo 30+years Logan-Hermosa

    I checked yes, she can use them.
    You can send me a pm with the details for pickup.

Is it illegal to honk?

Need to vent. Today I was picking up my brother from his friends, I honked 2 times and these idiots (man and woman) who were walking their dog started yelling at me like crazy and said that why I had a phone. I got so mad I flicked them off and they tried to get close to my car so I took off. They were yelling at me crazy.

  • Did anyone consider that maybe the couple walking their dog thought Jennifer was honking at them and that’s why they got mad?

    Anyway, yes honking is rude. Not sure what the original poster was thinking the response would be to the original post... lol.

  • Thumbs up to the dog walkers for educating our operator

Water Bill Charges

Hello, So I am wondering if anyone else here gets charged for water fixtures on their water bill. Particularly speaking of non-metered bills. I own a small ranch style home and my bill has always been double of my friends or family. My last bill was $1000+ where as others are usually around $500.

I was told by Dept of Water that only properties larger than single family homes get charged for water fixtures, and my property is classified as a single family home, but I still get charged for the water fixtures.

Anyone else with a relatively small home have the same experience?

  • You may have a water leak. If you request a meter they will be able to tell you immediately if there is a leak. They will also let you know if you have water running constantly if you have a meter installed. I have received letters regarding a tenant running the water for 2 hours.

  • Pamela, yes that does make sense, but I am trying to understand why am I getting charged for fixture where others are not. It is not extra spigots as you mention, just getting charged the following:

    2 FLRS 24' WIDE BLDG
    (0001) BATH TUB
    (0001) HOSE FRONTAGE 1'-30'
    (0001) SINK...

    (0001) TOILET RES

    Neighbors and families who also are non-metered only have 2 FLRS 24' WIDE BLDG and their hose frontage listed that is what I am talking about and trying to understand if this would be normal and/or if other non-metered see these charges as well...hope this makes sense.

Neighborhood flyers

Does anyone know who I can contact regarding the neighborhood flyers tossed on our front yard. Sometimes there are three in one day. I always throw them out. I want to take my address off the delivery list. It's almost like getting unwanted calls and hanging up.
4300 block of Kostner ave

  • Thank you all for your suggestions. I did call the phone number listed on the back of the of the add. They are suppose to take me off the delivery list. I will keep you posted. Let's hope it works.

  • Sunny mango you might want to collect the Flyers tape to your garage door & take them to your alderman. Supposedly my Alderman calls these contractors & advises them they're not allowed to post Flyers without listing their contractors number. I even have a "no soliciting" & "post no bills" on both sides of my 5 yo garage door but to no avail.
