Saw a flyer for a missing wedding ring down there yesterday, near the light rail station.

Re: Funding Cut by $83,560 To Our Local Animal Shelter LHS
#2

Emailed Councilwoman Osborne about this and was happy to get a quick response and some clarification from her and HHS. Hopefully there are other ways to secure funding moving forward:

"Per an email I just got from HHS here are some more details (in italics) - essentially the impoundment is what HHS pays for with tax dollars and the contract reflects that. There are additional opportunities for grant funding, but it shouldn't be done via the contract for a specific service.:

Now to address the conversation, and the passage of the contract: The funding we provide LHS is specific to the State- Mandated impoundment of $300k annually. This is to impound animals we find or receive from our Animal Control Unit.

Over the past year, we have seen reduced services and hours, for our impoundment, and the contract reflects this.

We have offered many other funding opportunities and these funds come through other dollars, such as CSBG and CDBG.

As a reminder, HHS does not fund nonprofit efforts of any organization, if provides contracts for service.

Totally agree with you there. Unsupervised kids really have no place in the dog runs. That's what the huge playground is for.

Believe me, I agree that dog owners and their pets are getting a raw deal when it comes to the park, and I think that the designated "pet-free" zones are a pretty crummy side effect of the renovations. I read all the posts on here about dog owners getting harassed by over-zealous parents in the neighborhood and it makes me mad. But when someone acts this way (especially when it comes to dogs interacting w/ kids), it reinforces whatever negative ideas the stroller moms have about the dog owners in the park.

Normally, I'm a huge dog-owner supporter when it comes to the park, but I just witnessed some pretty ridiculous and disrespectful behavior from a guy walking his dogs tonight. He slowly went from one "pet free zone" sign to another and scratched off the word "zone" with his keys. That would have been one thing altogether but then I saw him walk his dogs into the grass around the playground and directly towards a small child playing with one of his parents, ultimately bossing the child out of the way with his dogs, when there was plenty of room to simply walk around. If anyone happens to see this guy (owns 2 black Scottish terriers), please feel free to ask him when he plans on paying for the news signs. Jerk.

Re: Tear down the embankment

Wow.

As someone who lives directly across from the embankment in a third floor condo, I have to say that we must be seeing different "eyesores".

In the spring and summer, the trees and vegetation on top of the embankment are a wonderful relief from all the concrete and brick of the neighborhood. In the fall, especially this last fall, the leaves look gorgeous when they turn. Take a moment from obsessing about the stones and look up once and awhile. You're missing the best part.

As far as property values go, I would blame the endless rows of uninhabited new condos for lowering home values before I blame the embankment. And I would rather look out at an "eyesore" than into someone's living room.

Tried it a little while ago and won't go back. The haircut was fine, but overpriced. I got charged for an additional service I didn't ask for, and the stylist I had was super-abbrasive and kind of scary.

Re: What's wrong with the Polish Army Veterans Building at Jersey and 6th?

Couldn't agree more. I live a few houses away and the noise from the parties they have there in the summer shake our walls, not to mention the party-goers who smoke pot and in our vestibule and fight in front of our house. That place is the worst.

It's a wedding reception for 200, which is a lot, but we're only looking at either a stationed appetizer service or light buffet, self-serve buffet. Open to anything food wise, although latin would be a nice plus.

Anyone know if there are any decent, inexpensive caterers in the area? I'm stumped...
