Yard of the Month – August 2011

Tuesday, August 30th, 2011

The July award for the yard of the month is Fritzy Dean and her husband, Russell Sullivan, of 8319 W. T.C. Jester . After moving in, Fritzy and Russell cut down a large tree in the front yard that was dying and left the stump, thinking that they would be able to landscape around it. Eventually they removed the stump and established a garden island in the yard with flowering shrubs.

Recycling Update

Sunday, August 7th, 2011

Join our group...No Rubbish This last Thursday, I saw some things out for recycling in Lazybrook that I would like to talk to you about. Some of the plastics were Styrofoam. I’m really sorry, but the city cannot recycle those; you will have to throw them away or find a use for them. We could always start a letter campaign to educate businesses to use more green packing material.

A typical day now has people walking the one-half mile loop, neighborhood families playing at the splashpad while chatting with neighbors and kids playing on a great playground.
