History : 

I started this blog in August of 2010 to make up for what I viewed as a lack of communication in our neighborhood about a (then) proposed Safe Routes to Schools sidewalk project. I sensed that the issue would not get too much coverage in the IJ, so I figured I could chronicle the events for my neighbors.
Somewhere between 2010 and 2012, it turned into a performance art project about bureaucracy and oligarchy.

Since 2012, posts have been sporadic, depending upon needs of the community, available time and funding. Plus, we moved out of Homestead. Someday, we may return.

p.s. Thanks to everyone who cast a vote in my direction on June 7th, 2016 It's good to know that at least 432 voters in District 4 have been paying attention.
For what it is worth, I supported Mr. Rodoni's candidacy and have found his staff to be responsive to public inquiries.
