The playground equipment is still standing. I am pretty sure that the word got out about us watching over the playground. I had to tell several kids not to stand up on the swings. I did it too!!! I let them know that we will be monitoring the playground every chance we get. We take great pride in this accomplishment of new playground swings. It took a lot of dedication and hard work and dog gone it!! We are going to take care of it. Now that we are moving forward we find ourselves being very watchful!! Next is our monitoring of DART. Once we get the route reinstated, We will be taking turns to make sure that the drivers are safe! SO!! Get the word out that their are new Deputies in town!

Seeing Results!!!

There have been a lot of changes made to the community. I noticed the DHA Maintenance workers putting up swings at the park, located off of Bexar and Canaan. They look brand new, I am not sure but no time for complaints. We have some!! I also noticed that the dirt piles were removed from around the playground. There is still a lot of issues that we face, but with dedication and hard work we will success in tackling some of them. I just want to take some time to let Ms. Cassell know, if she reads this, that we appreciate Her working with us to fix the playground. I just hate that it took so long to bring residents together to fight for what they need.

People who are crazy enough to think they can change the world...are the ones who do!

Thanks to all of you who came out to the Town Hall meeting on Saturday and to those of you who demonstrated so much courage in speaking out. Though I know it was frustrating and seemed like we are at a point where people aren't listening, you are making a difference. Your courage, your work to get others involved, your willingness to get up and show up on a Saturday morning...it will all make a difference. We have to continue working and continue pushing. We can...and we will...change our neighborhood for the better. Hang in there...we're all in this together!

One In A Million!!!!

What can I say about Lori Cullom. She is a great mother and Friend!! despite all the obstacles she had to overcome, she is still working on a Medical Career and she is moving and grooving. Lori not only works part-time but she also is currently attending a Computer software. Once she done with that, she will be attending EL Centro College in the Fall. How great is that. The amazing thing that I want everyone to know is that she lives right here in Turner Courts. She is a perfect example of a women that knows what she wants and she is not letting her living situation enable her, she is determined to move up in life!!! Way To Go Mrs. Lori. I am really proud of you. If you are ever in the area stop by the After School Academy and congratulate her.
