From Andrea Green

We live at 224 S. Lombard Ave. Wednesday morning 12/17, we discovered the light bulbs were missing in the motion-detector lights over our garage door. No damage occured and nothing was missing, but it may be that some criminal activity was planned in our area.

From Robyn Steele, 200 South Humphrey

On Sunday afternoon, Nov. 30th at 1:00 my 15 year old son was mugged in our alley (200 block of S. Humphrey)
He was walking East on Pleasant where 4 African American male youths (ages approximately 14-16) started following him. When he got to the middle of our alley (only 2 houses away from our back gate) they jumped him, punched him in the eye and took his cell phone and back pack. The youths then ran north through the Humphrey alley towards South Blvd. and then over to Austin.

We immediately called police, who responded extremely quickly. The police, my husband and son went looking for the offenders in a patrol car, but were unsuccessful.

I give this word of caution to all - if you think you are being followed, DO NOT go down alleys. Stick to the middle of the street.

Just wanted all to be aware of the situation.

PS from David:
MJ was leaving our garage shortly before this happened and noticed about 8 boys of this same age scattered about on opposite sides of the street. If you see large groups like this milling around and don't recognize the individuals, call the Police immediately. Since these robberies have been going on for months now, our neighborhood has to take more affirmative action about calling before something occurs. It would also be nice if the Police could notify us when things were happening so that we could be on the look out. Since they don't share this information with us, we need to keep each other in the loop about things we see and hear about.

Green Line Safety

I wanted to post an incident that happened to me on the Green Line last Wednesday on my way home from downtown.

It's Girl Scout Cookie Time

Just a note to the neighborhood that it's girl scout cookie time. We have many troops and leaders living in our neighborhood so there is no shortage of opportunity to order some. If no one comes to your home and you'd like to order cookes, call Rachel or Grace at 445-0575. They'd be happy to take your order. All Girl Scout Cookies are free of trans fat - even the Thin Mints! Cost is $4/box.
