Update, Sunday April 8: Both cats have returned home this morning! Hooray! If some good samaritan sent them home, thank you!
* * *
Missing: two 4 year old, long haired, male cats. One cat, Woody, is grey striped w/ deep green eyes, and the other is a large yellow cat named Bernie. (Or, Woodward and Bernstein.) Both cats are neutered and up-to-date on all shots, and on Frontline. The grey cat was missing as of late Tuesday evening, April 3. The yellow cat disappeared Friday evening, April 6.
If you have seen either one of these cats or have infomation that might help the owner locate them please contact:

A couple of news items which may be of interest to the Neighborhood:
First: you may have heard about plans to use the building at the old Total Environments location on Old Highway 63 as a homeless shelter. The initial newspaper reports indicated that the intent was to have 40 people there overnight during this winter. Subsequent discussions with the relevant city officials changed that to being just 10 people per night in order to comply with health & safety regulations. In addition, the shelter will only be open from 8:00 PM to 8:00 AM, and there will be an armed guard on the premises from 11:00 PM until they close the next morning. A request for a conditional use permit allowing this operation from the first of the year until March 15th will be presented to the City Council next Tuesday. If you would like more information, or have concerns about the matter, contact our City Council person, Gary Kespohl, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 573-268-7651.
Second, and concerning the same location: it looks like Dave Fenton has started the process for C-P zoning on the rest of that parcel (part of it is already zoned that way), in order to locate his auto repair business there. This was the presentation Mr. Fenton and his engineer made to our Neighborhood Association previously, which met with general agreement at the time. The next step will be for him to present actual plans to the planning department for review.
Happy New Year everyone!
We had a fairly good neighborhood garage sale this past Saturday. A small number of households participated, but those of us who did had good traffic and sold a fair amount of stuff. We have had this neighborhood-wide sale for three years in a row now, and it has gone fairly well. We have it in early fall – sometime between late August and early October, usually depending on the home football schedule. We will probably have another one next year, so you might keep that in the back of your mind and set things aside to sell then. A final decision will be made at the annual meeting the first week of August.
Hello everyone! A couple of times in the past, we have held a neighborhood open house on New Year’s Day. Sometimes people have indicated that they wish they could have come, but had made other plans. So we are giving everyone early warning this year.
Once again we will have an open house on the afternoon of New Year’s Day, Saturday, January 1, 2011, from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm. It will be a relaxed way to wrap up the holiday season visiting with our neighbors. Put it on your calendar; we’ll bring around reminders closer to the date.
Hope to see you then!
I was satisfied with the information given to us at the meeting ,and I cannot think of any reason to object to it.
Over on my blog I have a bit of a rant pertaining to Columbia, which isn’t specific to the neighborhood. It’s concerning privacy and civil liberties.
