One Good Thing: There has been talk of a Corona-baby boom nine months from now. But there is another boomlet coming sooner. Because most of the blowers have been silenced, birds again can hear each other’s mating calls. If the quiet persists, if the blowers stay away, we will hear more beautiful birds songs accompanying our days outside. If we are nice to Nature, she will be kind to us.
Drivers, please slow down for walkers and joggers practicing social distancing. Pedestrians need to walk in the street to safely pass those peds using the sidewalk. Have some courtesy and common sense by slowing way down and when possible, changing into a new lane.
Sidewalk Social Distancing 101: The smaller party always moves to the street to pass. If you’re a party of one approaching a party of two, you’re the one who needs to move. The exception is age. Any senior citizen party of one or one hundred gets the sidewalk. Above all, be kind.
Our local dentist and neighbors Scott Warner and his wife Robin just left a loaf of homemade bread and jar of homemade peanut butter on our front porch. We can’t imagine a more personal or more touching way to communicate and make contact in these unprecedented challenging times. What a tribute they are to our community!
Please put the homeless people in the Coliseum, not here. Closer to help centers and hospitals.
There are many homeless … just not the ones you see on the news with hoarding, substance abuse, mental health issues … in the Palisades. You have the senior women, most of whom have less than $700 mo in SS to live on and sleep in their cars … you don’t want them to have a safe policed parking lot to stay at night during the crisis? What about the single mothers?
I read that all foliage abutting sidewalks must be trimmed within six feet of the pavement. To all the beautiful tall ficus on the southeast corner of Sunset and Chautauqua you are encroaching upon my running space and breaking the law.
I took photos at Palisades tennis center, which has signs posted that the courts and park are closed but apparently it doesn’t apply to our community, as there were people on the courts over the weekend. I have friends in health care risking their lives and am outraged by this.
