The phone has been ringing constantly all day with the illegal spam phone calls. It's been pretty quiet lately, is this just at our house?

I was wondering if anyone knows of anybody who has recently lost a young male, solid black cat. This little guy followed Sarah home from the vicinity of Reba and Custer the other night. Extremely friendly, but thin and rather hungry. We have him at our house, and he has been sleeping and eating a lot for the past three days. I can't imagine him not being a loved and missed family member, given that he has such an excellent demeanor. My cats are a bit put out at the moment, but we will keep him for a few more days and put up some signs, before taking him to C.A.R.E.

Terrific article about a neighbor who started a hyper-local Facebook page and built up the community. I wonder how many different street emails lists and pages there are in the 8th Ward? http://www.nytimes.com/2015/08/25/world/eu...online-and-off.html

the Brummel Street listserv I'm on had an explanation and link to receive updates from the "Mosquito Abatement District" - did you know you could do that? I'm getting them now....it lets you know when/if they're spraying in your 'hood.
I believe the link is at cityofevanston.org.

Watch your purses and phones. A neighbor of mine was unloading groceries from her car and a man walking down the street reached into the car and took her phone. She literally had her arms full of baby and groceries. Police were called and a report was made. It often turns out that a rash of crimes are committed by just one or two people, so now we know that there is at least one person walking the streets watching carefully to see if you have left the car unlocked or the truck open or the garage open. Look sharp and lock the doors and windows.

Just got word from Michele as I could not be in court today: Raymond motion to quash was denied, meaning that the search of his home was legal and all the evidence from it may be used in court. Shawn Raymond has a status hearing on September 18, and the trial of both shooters begins October 1. Please keep especially the trial date in mind; a larger presence sends a strong message at trial.

And thank you Michele for your service today!

New school year but the same results with after school pick up. All cars parked illegally, blocking parking spaces for an apt building and the white car appears to be blocking access to the sidewalk. Also, the cars are pointing south towards Hull which means they will exit at Hull and ignore the sign on the Austin side that states No Thru Traffic. The alleys meet at a T intersection and I saw cars turning towards Austin, I guess they did not see the No Left Turn sign either. Bigger concern is the fact pedestrians and kids use this alley after school, it's just not safe with all this traffic.

Counter height cherry top table and two leather chairs. In good shape. Minor scratches. Leather chairs need some restitching. Free for pick up, but must be able to remove from our home, south Evanston. Will probably require putting table on its side and "jimmying" the table through the doorway as the table is close in size to the width of our door. Table is 36 x 36 x 36H. Chairs also counter height.

Another traffic circle with a stop sign (in fact, a four-way stop so four stop signs) is Wesley and Kirk.

That intersection is one block south of Chute Middle School. Is the placement of four stop signs on that traffic circle meant to slow and then stop traffic near the school?

Ah yes, the wonderful Mulford Wesley traffic circle by Lomar Park. Now I finally know why few drivers stop for the stop sign. But do they speed up for the traffic circles in Europe?

Richard - you should have sold tickets to the show!

Ann - Might be at the park - which is a "T" intersection if memory serves. The Stop sign should do it without the circle.

Fun at 325 Custer last night/early this morning! SUV flipped on its roof and a sea of cops and screaming in front of 325 custer ave. And then a celebration of fireworks for about an hour!

I know Chris, it makes no sense for a stop sign to be at a traffic circle

I isn't there a park at the traffic circle on Mulford. That might be why there's a stop sign

Also Mulford, west of Asbury at one of the two circles (don't remember which cross street). And the stop sign is not visible until you are on top of the intersection due to tree branches hanging down (east bound).

Hi Scott can you tell me where there's a stop sign at a traffic circle. I'd have to agree with you if there is one - makes no sense

On the traffic circles, just wondering why the city has stop signs at them? It kind of defeats the point. In other parts of the world where these are used, the idea is that traffic does not have to necessariliy stop--just yield to traffic already in the circle.

There is a ton of evidence that traffic circles cut down on congestion and can improve air quality.

It always struck me as strange that we have stop signs at them

Ald. Rainey,

There is no question that you and other officials are doing all that is possible. However, what astonishes me is how often certain people disregard the rules, probably because they feel they have the right to do what they want because they can. Besides the issues I've stated before, I have seen cars parked facing the wrong direction on Austin, parking right in front of fire hydrants and using the connecting alley from Hull which clearly has a Do not Enter sign posted. I know it's difficult to make people use common sense but perhaps a few tickets being written will start spreading the message. I have a great vantage point of the alley traffic and will do what I can to provide pictures of violations. Let's see how this year starts off. Thank you again for all your time and effort!
