Hi--a warning and a request: The warning: On Tuesday night/Wednesday morning, Nov 22/23, a car prowler made his/her way through the 6200 block of Palatine, hitting cars that were parked off-street. We were lucky; losses were minimal. So keep anything valuable out of your car, even if it seems like it's in a safe spot! Apparently dark, windy, rainy nights are great nights for prowling because no one is out and the wind & rain drown out any noises.
The request: Please keep an eye out for a small light green nylon purse that might have been tossed on a sidewalk or garbage can. Fortunately my wallet wasn't in it, but there were other things that are a hassle or a disappointment to replace. If you find it, please mail me at eepsthisyear AT hotmail.com. Thanks!
