We were very lucky this past weekend.

If the tornado that hit Troy and Shelby would have come farther south, University Heights could have seen terrible damage and death. Today I rode past the damage along Troy from west of Madison to east of Keystone. Our neighbors to the north really got socked.

One of the best businesses that we have here on the southside, AMI Do-It-Best Hardware had considerable damage. I know the owners of AMI have done a lot to invest back into the Southside, along with supporting many charitable causes. Let's keep them in mind and hope they can get back on their feet very quickly.

I just received the following offer from Dr. Pamela Jackson, Dept. of Sociology, Indiana University. She is looking for families in our neighborhood to be a part of a study.

" Letter of invitation:

You and your family are invited to participate in a study about family, work, and health.

We would like to interview you in-person (we come to you any time and day of the week).

We would like to interview 4-5 of your family members (over the telephone so they can live anywhere in the United States).

Interviews will be completely confidential.

For completing an interview you will receive $20 and a 120 minute phone card.

Your family members who complete a telephone interview will receive a 120 minute phone card.

Sounds like an interesting study plus it includes a bonus.

Here is a web page with more info, or you can download this word document.

Flowers to the contractors working for the city installing new sidewalks on Edwards Avenue. They are doing a beautiful job, and raising envy of their skill in this home handyman.

Darts to the University of Indianapolis students who while celebrating the end of the school year at 1519 E. Edwards decided it would be funny to knock over many of the trash cans on Edwards Avenue as they made their way home early Friday morning. Way to Go. Shining products of U of I learnin'.
I am looking for people interested in going out with me to meet our neighbors. The plan is to meet our neighbors, get names and phone numbers, and provide some info.
