Spring is in the Air…..

Thursday, March 31st, 2011

My husband’s grandma always said “Spring is sprung, the grass is ris, I wonder where the birdies is?”  I’m just wondering where Spring is!!  Regardless of the temperature outside, the calendar has told us Spring is here and the IRS is telling us taxes are due!

If you are like me, you are thinking about the spring cleaning you promise to do every year,  and wondering where to put all that junk!  You might also be scrambling to get your taxes done, and going through piles of paper that you kept around all year “just in case”.   Many people make the mistake of just putting those unneeded papers in their garbage, not bothering to shred it, leaving themselves and their personal information available to some very crafty people.

Tuesday, February 1st, 2011

Last May we posted an update about creating a board of directors and organizing the Lineberry Alliance. Currently, we are just a loose association of neighborhood organizations and HOA groups that collaborate over email, share solutions to neighborhood problems, and connect with each other to swap recommendations, recipes, babysitters, etc. It’s been a few months since you’ve had an update on the organizational efforts. It’s time to share with you a draft of our mission statement, by-laws, and announce our founding meeting to be held on Thursday March 3, 2011. (more…)

How Long Will Carolina Pines Avenue be Closed?

Monday, January 31st, 2011

I was wondering what was taking so long with the Carolina Pines Avenue closure/detour. It has caused the city bus to reroute as well as school buses to have to reroute—and it seemed like the project was taking way longer than any of the other road projects around here. So I wrote the city and got a very nice response and an address for updates to progress. (more…)

Scaling Back in 2011

Monday, December 20th, 2010

The following message was sent to the Lineberry Alliance list on 12.20.10. I must say thanks who have helped make the Lineberry Alliance what it is today and also to those that will take it to the next level.

Hi neighbors,

I wanted to send this note to you before the holidays got into full swing. In 2011, I plan on scaling back my participation in the Lineberry Alliance. I’m very proud of the work we’ve done so far. We’ve figured out that if our neighborhoods can work together and share successes & challenges, that we can make our part of the world a better place.

I have a project that looks really fun and is an opportunity for me help make the larger area we live in more recognized. (more…)
