Christmas in July a Success! Stacy Mosely Thanks You!

Historic Germantown has to be the best neighborhood in Nashville! The "Christmas in July" event was attended by around thirty neighbors and we collected around $750 and many boxes of wish list items for our three charities! All the charities were very appreciative and delighted in our efforts.

Thanks to the generosity of neighbors, someone will have food to eat tonight, a warm blanket, a radio to keep them company, clothing to protect them and hope for tomorrow. Animals lives will be spared, they will have something to eat, a warm blanket to lie on and hope that they will be adopted. Thank you Germantown Neighbors!

Mosquitoes--from the Mayor's Office of Neighborhoods

We want you to know that mosquitoes collected by the Metro Public Health Department’s Pest Management Division have tested positive for West Nile virus. The mosquitoes were trapped in a neighborhood southwest of the Highway 70 and Highway 100 split. There have been no human cases reported this year in Davidson County.
As a result of the confirmation of WNV in mosquitoes, the Health Department has increased mosquito trapping efforts in the area where mosquitoes have tested positive. Health Department Pest Management Staff have also increased monitoring standing water and applying larvacide granules where mosquito larvae are present.
Targeted use of adulticide may be applied following further evaluation of the area where WNV was identified. Notification of spraying will be provided to media, on Metro 3, Health Department Web Site (healthweb.nashville.gov), and sent on the Health e-mail system.
The most likely method of WNV transmission to humans and other animals is by biting mosquitoes that are carrying the disease. Therefore, the Health Department recommends community members take the following steps to protect themselves from mosquito bites, including:
- Limit time outdoors at dusk and nighttime hours when mosquitoes are present.
- If you must be outdoors then wear a mosquito repellent that is approved for use by the CDC.
- Wear shoes, socks, long sleeve shirts and pants when outdoors during dusk to dawn when mosquitoes are most prevalent. Clothing should be light colored and made of tightly woven materials to keep mosquitoes away from the skin. Pant legs should be tucked into shoes or socks, and collars should be buttoned.
- Make sure all your windows and doors have screens and are in good repair.
- The Health Department asks community members to reduce or eliminate mosquito breeding grounds by removing standing water in your yard – especially in children’s toys, bird baths, clogged gutters, tires, flowerpots, trashcans, and wheelbarrows, and cut back overgrown vegetation (mosquito hiding areas).
The Health Department will provide e-mail updates throughout mosquito season.

Car break-in's--Monday, July 4

This morning (07/04/05) Terry Coggins’ truck was broken into on 4th Ave., North. Terry is Bill Gould’s next-door neighbor. Shattered window and stereo stolen. Significant damage. Three other cars on 4th Avenue, North were also broken into. Police awoke Terry this morning to tell him the bad news. Police dusted all cars for fingerprints. This recent property crime activity correlates with other auto break-ins that have occurred in the # 202 alley running between Van Buren and the Germantown Café’. All neighbors in the # 202 alley and along 4th Avenue North are strongly encouraged to report any suspicious activity to Metro Police.
