Traffic seemed a little bit less this year, but we hope everyone had a successful sale and cleared out some clutter!
We had a total of 410 successful downloads of the garage sale map. We served a total of 123.08 MBs in maps.
One possible hindrance has been the policy changes on Craigslist which restricted announcement of the sale to the dates it was occurring, and their disallowing placement of links in the ad. Next year, in addition to the PDF format, we’re going to take steps to make it a bit easier for people to access the map in a format more suited to smartphones by integrating the maps with Google Maps.
Hello fellow residents,
I am attaching (see below) a letter that Mayor Ortega sent me about our tennis courts. Recently, I spoke at the city council meeting about the tennis courts not being available to residents because they are being used by a business owner. A few days after the meeting , I received a letter from the mayor that was also sent to the chief of police (who has much more to worry about if you read the police blotter). In the letter, it seems like the mayor is accusing me of vandalizing a sign-up sheet (which I did not). He also made an incorrect statement about how San Antonio tennis courts are operated. San Antonio courts are first come/ first serve, just like they have been in Hollywood Park. I have been told that this sign-up sheet is important to the mayor because his children are getting lessons. The lady giving lessons is running a business charging clients and can now reserve the courts free of charge and tell the residents that come to play “tough, I have the court reserved”. Several people have told me, Voigt park was land donated for recreation use only not commercial use or the family can take the land back. I want to know if his children are receiving lessons from her and did he disclose this to city council before voting on the sign up sheet? Our tennis courts have always been on a first come basis just like San Antonio and should remain that way so we don’t risk losing are park. After the city council meeting, the mayor did say he would take the sign-up sheet down but I would have to beat him in a game of tennis. I don’t think our neighborhood keeping it’s recreation center should hinge on my tennis-playing abilities.
Since the mayor is under the impression that I am the only resident who dislikes the sign-up sheet (despite another person showing their dislike by writing “this sheet is BS” on it), please voice your opinion so our neighborhood can keep its recreational facilities and use them in a way that has worked for decades.

We still need some help for Halloween. One of the largest projects is putting up the entrance. I need some handy dads (yes, moms, you are welcome to help) who are free the morning of Halloween (Thursday the 31st) to help us erect the entrance. We also need help that evening running the events, set up and take down.
