Keep an Eye Out Against Crime

Dean Dixon has an alert about recent neighborhood activity and some advice regarding safety:
A gold or bronze Yukon has been spotted circling our neighborhood at odd hours. It is pulling a black trailer behind the vehicle with a water tank on it. In the wee hours of the morning (4am), this vehicle has been shining a red light into windows to detect activity. They could be planning a break-in or could be stealing your water for their business. If you see this vehicle, call the police immediately.

Several break-ins have occurred on 6th Avenue involving cars. Not only have they stolen what was loose in the car, but have done significant damage to the cars beyond breaking windows. Protect your vehicles.

The police want us to know that there is a drug shortage in Nashville, driving up crime for more money to buy what drugs are available. Therefore, if you mix in the new construction, cars parked on the side of the road already broken into, you have a perfect opportunity for more serious break-ins and robbery.

Please be aware, alert and call the police when you are suspicion of anything. It is good for all of us to be protective of our community.

Garden Guzzle a Huge Success

A record number of neighbors came out for the 2007 Garden Guzzle this past Sunday! It was stunning!

The Social & Entertainment committee works hard to bring us these events and your hard work volunteering at events like Oktoberfest make it all possible.

Our appreciation also goes out to the Lawrence Brothers for the use of their truck and Gardens of Babylon for the loan of their landscaping materials!

House for Sale (Soon): 1328 5th Ave

Martha Irwin wrote to let us know that her home at 1328 5th Ave will be going up for sale soon and wanted to give us a preview:
The house is very cute and a great alternative to a condo, as there is a fenced yard. We are asking $209,000. It is 2 big bedrooms, a beautiful bathroom, a big living room that has a fireplace and opens into a gourmet kitchen. We put a new roof on it 6 mos. ago, it has a paved back patio, is entirely fenced and is painted in designer colors. We are willing to include all appliances (washer/dryer, stove, microwave, dishwasher) and would be willing to make a deal for the bbq grill and patio furniture. I'm so upset to leave and we hope that the next buyer loves it as much as we have!!
