Shedding Light on Shredding

By Sharon Balke - Recently two neighbors asked me if it is acceptable to put shredded paper in plastic bags into the recycling cart.  I felt confident that the paper was fine but I wasn’t sure about the plastic bag since we all know plastic bags are not allowed.  Still, who would want that shredded paper flying all over Timbergrove? To find out for certain,...

DRCC Update

By Tommy Britt - Last month I wrote about the DRCC’s new approval process that requires an on-site visit with the owner and contractor. During a variance request we discovered that some property owners and contractors had taken liberties, honest and not so honest, and snuck a few things by us. We accepted the lion’s share of blame because, quite frankly, our approval process had...

Cat Mutilations in Timbergrove

Shared from: Jennifer Estopinal - Overnight there was another cat mutilation in Timbergrove Manor (near 11th/TC Jester), discovered by pet owners in their front yard this morning. Saw remains with my own eyes, an animal did not do this, definitely a human. Police responded, including one of the investigators assigned to this ongoing crime. I don’t like posting these horrible incidents, but feel everyone needs...

Great job Kim!...

By Sharon Balke - Kind hearted.  It’s a term we use frequently, maybe too often, but I’m going to use it to describe two neighbors who took action rather than just sitting back and complaining.  Here is their story. The two women, who don’t wish to be identified, have lived in Timbergrove for 15 years.  They keep their yard neat and are friendly with everyone...
