From a neighbor: Regarding a tricycle that was removed from along Vistamont Drive on Sunday morning, Oct 17, around 10:00 am - it may have been picked up by someone who thought it was out for disposal (although it was definately not next to the curb). It is a red
"classic" RadioFlyer tricycle, and the two-year old rider would very much like to have it back home. If you inadvertently picked it up on the way through the neighborhood, please return to where it was found.

Hello Clairmont Heights Neighbors— This week promises to be a banner one for those concerned with the DCSS School Consolidation and Redistricting Initiative (kind of Orwellian, no?). We will (hopefully) finally hear what the outlines of the plan are and what criteria are to be applied to any decision-making. It has been stressed by Interim Superintendent Ramona Tyson that we should not expect the big unveiling to be an ending point, but a beginning in the process. I’m choosing to think of it as finally finding out what we are up against.
