    Pro Tip: If you sign up for Nextdoor, you will receive updates about every single coyote sighting in Glen Ellyn pretty much at real time. And all of the updates will sound as if you could simply switch the word "coyote" with "velociraptor." After all, coyote sightings in the western surburbs are rare in 2019.

    And you can also buy some used soccer cleats for your kid. All in all, really worth the effort to download.

    I'd kind of forgotten about that thing so I logged on again. Lots of cat updates, too.

    Yeah, evidently there is a pack of three of them roaming the GE/Wheaton area.

    Good thing we have two bigger, older dogs to keep an eye on our 5 month old puppy. The male dog got into a stare down two nights ago with what I thought might be a coyote, turns out it's just a rascally rabbit.

    Apparently, we are now the center of stray cat activity in the town. I'm pretty sure that all the strays now have their own access to Next Door.

    Acted his way into this, but doesn't seem like he'll be able to act his way out. Pay someone $3,500 to jack you up and then lose your income, freedom, and dignity. Unbelievable.

    I’d like to propose to the owners of the GEF a rule stating if a candidate for public office, posts in threads related to the organization they are running for, they must post under their actual name. If they violate the rule, they are outed and banned...

    Wait...I thought these were people's actual names.

    You aren't saying it would work like this, would it?

    Ald. Mell Staffer Caught Using Fake Account to Pose as Undecided Voter, Mislead and Attack Constituents

    Surely that wouldn't happen in a school board election?

    I didn’t mention any specific race... I promised the owners I would not out the person. For now I am keeping that promise.

    Glen Ellyn now has three unmarked police vehicles (at least), two sedans and an SUV. Why unmarked? Might see state police using them for interstate speeding, or inner city for patrol...but why does Glen Ellyn need 3 "undercover" vehicles? Some states have restricted or banned the use of unmarked vehicles, such as the state of Washington, where police forces need a court order to operate unmarked vehicles. Curious.
