    The junction spring clean was a great way to give back to the community. Teens should volunteer to get hours for school.

    Thank you for your service and it’s desperately needed would be great if it was done on a quarterly basis like in the admiral district.

    Gary Jones — Is this a great blue heron fledgling from this year? If so, she’s extremely early.  Please leave a comment as researchers who track this would like to get more information. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
