The CVS drugstore construction project seems to have somewhat scattered the wannabe workers along PDL, but pedestrian access to the shopping area is still sometimes blocked right at the entrance next to this construction site. It is my hope that the new CVS will not allow the narrow sidewalks along this area to be ...

Topics to be covered include – CourtWatch, the 911 Call Center system, identity theft, seizure of drug houses. This year’s session is on Saturday, ...

Thanx to the alertness of several folks here in VaHi and most recently, Kris White, the b/m driver of an older Buick with GA license plate BJV541, has been stopped and interviewed by Zone 6. He was not caught doing anything illegal this past Wednesday evening, so he could not be held – ...

I have been recently been told of a Greenwood Avenue dogwalker who spied a window peeper on St. Charles Avenue casing out houses. He called 911 to notify Zone 6 and hopefully thwarted some break-ins. Glad to hear neighbors are looking out for neighbors.

Monday morning’s scheduled hearing for Timothy Kozak was a disappointment for we CourtWatchers, as his hearing was yet again postponed til a later date to September 28th.
