Once again someone has dummped a huge pile of tree branches by 1100 Austin. Looking at the leaves these appear to be from pine trees and the only pines tress in that area are in the Oakton school park area. This is unreal if this truly is from the school grounds.

Judy sorry for the delay:


Domestic Battery at 319 Callan the offender fled prior to R/O’s arrival, so multiple units were checking the area. Victim was battered about the head by the offender, superficial wounds.

It would be great if we didn't have to memorize 4 different days and which week was. It is very difficult to find parking places after 8PM around here!!!

It would be convenient to have the city text service show what side of the street is to be cleaned.
Thanks

No story about the Golden. It sounded like owner could have been more proactive in finding her dog but I know no details on that. I wanted to make sure that the shelter knew about As Good as Gold Golden Retriever Rescue in case owner wasn't found. We got our Sadie from them and I can't say enough about the work they do. They are incredible!!

Damn, some wacky formatting. TRYING to forward this to the group. Anyone else seen an email like this? Is "conformation" a Canadian spelling? seems bizarrely off somehow -- no typos or errors added by me.

Thanks Ann. Looks like there was to be a longitudinal study of contamination levels.

Poking around on the site I found this:

"For safety reasons, the City of Evanston will close the water for swimming (beach area remains open) when any of the following situations occur:

High E. coli (bacteria) level
Unsafe conditions due to rip or lateral currents
High winds limiting visibility due to blowing sand
Excessive wave action
Thunder
Fog
Seiche effects (rapid change in water level due to change in barometric pressure)
The opening of the locks in Wilmette triggers an immediate closing of all City of Evanston swimming areas for at least 24 hours
Other health hazards (biological/chemical waste).
During the following situations, both the beach and the swimming area will be closed:

Lightning
Tornado
Waterspout

"Swimming at the beaches will be prohibited after monitoring conducted by the Evanston Health Department determines that bacteria levels exceed those established in the Swimming Pool and Bathing Beach Code (235 colony forming units [cfu] of E. coli per 100 milliliters of water is the level at which closing is required)."

So, either there's a thunderstorm warning, or the Wilmette Locks were to be opened (otherwise it would just be the water that is off-limits). There's another place to sign up for updates from the MWRD when a "Combined Sewer Overflow" event is to happen (this may be what triggers opening the Wilmette Locks?) which is here: http://www.mwrd.org/irj/portal/anonymous/overview

/m33833 Amy - or it might have been a major fire in the 8000 block of Kenton in Skokie; Fire units from many other suburbs were called. House struck by lightening. It was on one of the late news shows last night.

Do the beach people ever post bacterial PPM or PPB or whatever the applicable units are, so that we may know what they consider unsafe levels?
