I’m not sure I’m willing to let Church Hill claim this guy entirely – Kevin moved with his folks to Forest Hill Terrace when he was about eight, went to school at Good Shepherd, and pool-partied at Granite. I watched Kevin grow up, and I’m proud of him! Kevin Hyde, RPD Officer of the Month

Neighbors in the Forest Hill, Forest Hill Terrace, and nearby areas need to keep an eye out for groups of middle-school-age black males riding through the neighborhoods. Last time, our scooters were taken from the front porch, where they were in plain view. This time, we were actively cased by children who are obviously well-trained […]

Also, the Manchester/Gen Dist Court case # is GC10003568-00. Stacy gave her the first ticket, too. It chaps me no end that she lied about this on-camera. Statement of being chapped is by Jennifer C. the creator of this post. Richard H. is not chapped at this time.

ed. note: This is a Jennifer post, not a Richard post. He is much cheerier than I am, possibly due to a lack of sticks. As previously discussed here, DPW’s response to the piles of junk left over from the storm that came through on August 27 (114 days ago) has been lackluster, disorganized, wasteful, […]
This morning, three or four city workers pulled up in a crew cab with a trailer half-full of brush to pick up my next-door neighbor’s pile of storm debris. I moved my car so they could park the trailer, and asked if they’d be taking mine, too. “I’m sorry, but you’re not on the list. […]
If you have any inclination towards dumpster-diving or alley-picking, don’t do it behind 1207/1209 W. 47th St, aka Parkwood Apartments. There has been recent discussion regarding bedbugs.
A few days ago, this appeared on my back deck. I’d never seen it before, and as my deck is enclosed by a privacy fence, I had no idea how it had gotten there. Tonight, the neighbors we were pet-sitting for returned home. I took their key up, and as I was talking to the […]

[slideshow id=48] Hundreds of children and their families turned out today for the Forest Hill Park Eggstravaganza. While the weather was a little on the chilly side, most folks seemed to have a great time – there were funnel cakes, painted faces, weird balloon hats, and balloon-sword fights in every direction. There were also a […]
There were several downed trees in the city last night, including one in the alley behind the 5200 block of Devonshire Rd. The horizontal tree, which is now blocking the alley, took out power lines to one house and damaged a garage. Virginia Power has been called to the site to check on the wires. […]
