Electrician Recommendation

Need someone who can do outside and inside work -- outdoors: fixing/installing new automatic sensor lights, garage light and perhaps installing an outdoor outlet in the front of my house -- and indoors: fixing a shorted out outlet in the bathroom. Would prefer someone local. Who have you used that is great?

Wheels and Tires stolen on Jeep

Somebody stole the wheels and tires from a jeep right on the corner of Kingsdale and Kercheval about 5 AM in the morning while the car was parked right in front of the owner’s house

  • Sauganash is not the safe refuge it once was, stay vigilant, stay alert and don't hesitate to call 911 if you see suspicious activity.

    There have been a lot of thefts of both wheels and catalytic converters in this part of town, set your car alarms at all times. If you have a security system that can handle it, consider adding and external microphone so that in the winter or when your windows are closed, you can still hear what's going on outside. I'm going to put our wheel locks back on, it's worth the inconvenience. I hearby offer a sixpack of your favorite brew to the person who helps the cops bust these scumbags!

Suspicious car and activity

Hello.
I spotted this car in our alley parked and suspiciously eyeing our house (2 men in car). I happened to be taking out the trash and approached them. They immediately drove off but our alley is one way. They came back and I took a photo. I followed them multiple more times about a half block away as they parked. Each time I approached, they drove off quickly.
I called police but said nothing they could do.

Gardening/Landscaping service wanted

yes, i want the usual spring clean-up and core aeration, but I'd also like someone who can tear up some tired old planting beds and give me some fresh color, some fresh veggies and help me maintain it. Do you have someone with a good eye who can be creative but also handle the basics on a budget? Referrals welcome -- I'd even welcome a passionate master gardener or a skilled amateur looking to build a portfolio. The place I was using just won't cut it anymore.

Read All About It! FAiR Newsletter February 2018 is Out - Jet Noise and Health

Greetings My Neighbors,

Sharing this with you from the Fair Allocation in Runways (FAiR) Coalition. The lead story is about the impact of airplane noise on and in our lives.

JET NOISE AND HEALTH

Chicago and suburban residents under the O’Hare flight paths currently experience jet noise in the range of 65 - 110 decibels on a 24/7 basis. Those living immediately adjacent to the boundary of O’Hare, like the residents of Park Ridge, Bensenville, and the 41st Ward, experience noise levels close to 120 decibels (the sound at which aircraft take off).
