On Saturday February 6th, neighborhood residents Eduardo Andrade, David Newton, John Drann, John Maynard and 8 members of Emory’s Sigma Nu fraternity (pictured below) took part in cleaning-up the CHCA neighborhood entry on North Superior. The CHCA Board coordinated with residents and the fraternity members in responding to an elderly neighbor’s request with help in cleaning his portion of the property abutting the neighborhood entry.

Update 2/12/10 from Beth Bond firstname.lastname@example.org: It is with a very deeply sad heart that I have decided that the safest, most prudent thing to do is to cancel Recycle Your Life tomorrow. Why cancel vs. postponed? We don't have a "snow" date (who the heck thought we would need one?) and the amount of time it takes to arrange all the moving parts is a good amount of work. We will have another one planned but not until June : )
Medlock Park Community Garden is ready for sign-up. We will start with twenty plots the first year with the possibility of more once we get settled in. We need 20 people to commit to a plot for 2010. The deadline to reserve a plot is February 15.
Update Feb. 2, 2010 from a resident : Dekalb Police report that "the robber(s) have been caught robbing a bank with our neighbor's car as the getaway car. Suspects will be tried in Federal Court since it was a bank robbery."

From the MANA Neighborhood Watch: "Details are still emerging, but here is what I know so far..."A neighbor on Ava Pl just called to tell me that a well dressed black man walked up her driveway last night as she was pulling in, put a gun in her face and demanded her car keys which she gave him. The police came and took a report. All I know at this point.." I have contacted the Dekalb PD for more details. This is very rare for our neighborhood, but please be aware of your surroundings and report anything that looks suspicious to 911 with details. " Matt Ribbens
