Recommendations for and of the community.

will make the recommendations from community members more prominent on the front page and in the
vultures – this issue keeps raising its ugly head. The vultures LOVE our community frequently on trash days (Monday & Thursday) When
one leaves trash that contains food open and available to Turkey Vultures ~ only a fool could not put two
