Dead Roster on Brown Line Tracks

A dead rooster has been seen on the Brown Line tracks at the Francisco stop on May 5th, 2008. This may have been the same rooster that has been heard recently within this past week during the early morning hours.

Could this dead rooster be a result of "Cock-Fighting" in the area or someone that lost a pet!

Where are the parents - Kids running loose!

Today the police responded to call sometime around 5 :00 P.M. - 6:00 P.M. this evening about children that were seen to what appears to have a "Gun" and were waving it outside a 2nd floor apartment window of a 2 Flat apartment building located at 4832 N. Avers Ave. Soon after the police left the scene a group of kids returned back to the property and continued to loiter out in the front of the property. This property has been noticed as a hot area and an attraction to several young kids and teens some of which appear to be involved in possible gangs, robbery and or drugs.

I have to ask where are the parents and how come they are not stepping up and attempt to keep their kids of from the streets?

Graffiti Laundry Mat

Neighborhood gang graffiti on Avers side of building at corner of Lawrence and Avers (3822 Lawrence). This has been reported to 311 and to Alderman's office. You may want to report it if not removed soon so that they know the people will not stand of defacing where we live. As a community we must take a stand among those who feel it is necessary to deface private property.
