Mount Washington Association President Asked to Leave 'Friends' Meeting

David Fonseca

Just how much does the Highland Park/Mount Washington community support the Friends of Southwest Museum Coalition?

That very question led to a brief debate during a 'Friends' meeting at the Highland Park Ebell Club on Wednesday night, which ended in Mount Washington Association President Rob Schraff being ejected.

More Microfarms on the Horizon

Anna Carpenter

Our first little “farm” is doing very well, and the experiment with the lasagna method of growing food has been extremely successful, so much so that seasoned local gardeners are stopping, inquiring, and then vowing to adopt it in their own plots. The best part has been that we did not dig… we just layered good stuff on top of good stuff! Or rather, good straw on top of alfalfa straw.

Native Plant Sale

Lynette Kampe

I will bring an assortment of California plants for sale at the Summer Fun Meeting. With temperatures soaring I’ll select special native plants for this year’s sale that are well suited to container planting, or that you can slip into an irrigated shady spot or a similarly moist part of your garden. What could be easier!

The Repaving of Elyria Drive

Bill Rumble

Nobody on Elyria Drive can remember the last time the City repaved our street.

My neighbor Stanley claims that it was more than 85 years ago. He should know. For a year now, he's been calling the City and asking them to fix the street. He asks each city bureaucrat to look through their records and tell him the last time the road was resurfaced. None of the folks from the City can find a document authorizing the job and they've looked through more than eighty years of work orders.

President’s Message: Summer Fun Meeting 2011

Organized by Carol Jaques, Pilar Buelna and Natalie Seaman, the Summer Fun meeting will be held this year in and around the Mount Washington Elementary multipurpose room, so you will definitely find a comfortable pace to sit as well as a bunch of friendly neighbors to chat with.
