I think I can go to Springfield. Will have to get a ride at 4 am to Dempster, though. More later about this, I'm sure.

Hi, I just wanted to thank the members of this forum for their helpful information. I am not a dog owner and I did not realize the impact of rock salt on their tender paws. I just bought a hopefully very good alternative that supposedly works down to 0 F, is organic and doesn't hurt paws or plants. I found it at a new pet supplies store next to Valli supermarket on Dodge. I love that market and now I love that pet supply store. I also bought stuff for my cat there. They have a very comprehensive inventory. If you are a pet owner, it might be worth it to check it out. It's great to see that shopping area come back so strongly.

Diane,

The City of Evanston has a municipal aggregation program, where all residential and small businesses are included in the purchase of electricity unless they opt out. The City's contract is with Dynegy Electric Services. The cost is $0.07132/kWh and is for 100% green energy - meaning that Evanston purchases RECs to support wind farms in Illinois or adjoining states. This price is fixed through August 2020.

Please contact me if you have any questions. Thanks

I spoke with those two young women, they had ID and I believe they are legit. They are enrolling anyone, who is not already enrolled, in the Star Energy Partners Program. info@starenergypartners.com, http://www.StarEnergyPartners.com
Customer Service: (855) 427-7827. Maybe Ann knows more?

Two young women just rang our doorbell claiming to be with Com Ed--something about double billing. We said we weren't interested and did call the police in case they are scammers. They are headed east on Hull.

John - I understand that living is great in West Bumbleburbia. Low taxes, total snow removal, and no crime!

Energy scammers and such ilk, coping tips: DO NOT let them in! Tell them you need a bathroom break so can they come back in a few minutes, then call police without telling the baddies?

Chasing them off is good; correctly calling them liars feels good but is not productive; getting them arrested could be best.

"Package" at the door? Where is it from? If they can't answer, it's a scam. If they do answer and it's not a known source, take your cell- or cordless phone to the outer door, don't let them in, and be ready to call police if they cannot show a properly addressed package.

If you hesitate to use 911 for something that does not seem immediately dangerous, the EPD general number is 847-866-5000.

If there is risk of crime in progress or injury, call 911.

Be ready to answer "where?" with both city and location, in case you got a Chicago cell tower or a cable-phone routing to West Bumbleburbia.

We just had the energy scammers come to our building. A group of three men with badges that labeled them working for Life Energy. They gained access to our condo by buzzing a neighbor and saying they had a delivery. He buzzed them in and they went to work. One per floor knocking on doors. Asked for my ComEd bill to confirm I was still getting billed properly. Confronted by both me and my upstairs neighbor who called the police. He called them out for lying to say they had a delivery for him.

I was hoping we could move on from snow. Dog poop just wasn’t on my mind.

It would seem, with all the dog walkers in your neighborhood one with fear not picking up after their dog.

 Whoever you are you’re going to be caught.

Dear Lazy Small Dog Owner,
Please don't try to tell anyone that you can't see your dog's poop in the snow because your dog is crapping all over the sidewalks and building entrances. It's plainly visible. And hopefully, most neighbors see it before stepping in it.

Rant over. Thanks for listening.

My best suggestion at this point is for those with continuing snow concerns - especially involving specific locations, an email to

311Center 311center@cityofevanston.org is absolutely the way to handle. It allows for tracking and responses to you the sender by way of the 311 software.

It appears the city is now working clearing the bike lanes of ice and snow. I guess that’s just in case you may want to take a spin about town in this 20 degree weather. Meanwhile the city owned alleys lay unplowed and treacherous trapping the cars of seniors and others in their garages because they can’t shovel the alley themselves or hire someone who is physically able. Missed doctor appointment? No food in the fridge? Oh well.
