Crime Alert!

by Daragh Carter -  Friends and neighbors: I’m told there was a burglary this morning in the 6400 block of Cindy Lane.  I have no additional details other than the white Chevy Malibu (involved in several other burglaries) was captured on a neighbor’s surveillance camera.  I don’t like to send notices out with scant detail, but since these guys seem to be hitting a home...

Green Bin Disposal

by Sharon Balke Aren’t the green recycling cans great?  They holdso much and there is no worry of material getting wet if it rains or blowing away if it’s windy.  I hope that Timbergrove has at least an 80% participation rate. I have found a place that will accept the old recycling bins.  It is the city’s facility at 9003 N. Main, four miles one-way...

Do The Right Thing

by Tommy Britt From time to time I look at the issues we get involved in and wonder why anyone would subject themselves to this kind of work. I commonly tell acquaintances, if you want to be the most unpopular and popular person at the same time, volunteer for a deed compliance committee.  I occasionally whine about this just to keep an even keel. I...

Color Galore

by Sharon Balke Some will accuse me, unjustly, of being lazy when it was my turn to pick Yard of the Month and I chose 1023 Waltway, right across the street from my house as the June winner.  But once you drive or walk by the home of Kendall and Jordan Smashey you will agree with me that it is worthy of the distinction. Kendall...

Privacy

by Tommy Britt If you have ever been responsible for writing a regularly published article, you will understand the crisis mode you go into when the publisher sends you an “Article Due” notice and you haven’t got the foggiest notion as to what you’re going to say that could possibly have any impact on the readers.  This month was certainly no exception.  Somewhere there is...

Scouting Around

written by: Sharon Balke This spring the DRCC graciously approved my application for a soft release cage for songbirds ( think mocking birds, blue jays, robins) and screech owls (think roach killers) for my back yard. The birds would stay in the enclosure for about two weeks, getting use to the sounds, sights and humidity of Timbergrove Manor and then be released into the wild....

Good Things Come to Those That Wait

written by: Sharon Balke By now all of you have received your green recycling cans. I catch myself saying green garbage cans but they are far from that. These cans will remove what some residents formerly tossed in the black garbage cans that ended up at the expensive landfills. Thanks to everyone who wrote letters to city officials asking that we be placed on the program....
