Village News 1/19/17

Dear Village Neighbors / Friends,

Short report today.

Were You Missed? – With all the problems I’ve had and still have with Verizon, it is possible  you do not receive the enews in your inbox. It is normally distributed on Thursday afternoons so you’ll know by Thursday evenings if the copy I intended for you is hung up in verizon’s server or in your suspected spam folder or I was suspended again as a suspected spammer. But, you can find the weekly enews normally on our website ( Webmaster Bob Havey and/or I post it right after attempting the old-fashioned email way. Even if email works – we still post it,   

I’ll send the enews using Gmail (, but please send any responses or emails to

Slow Down! – We have too many of us driving too fast over our village streets. Speed limit on Rolling Road within our boundaries is 30 MPH; 25 MPH on secondary, side streets. Please advise delivery drivers to also slow down.

More Crier and 2017 Directory Deliverers Needed – Thanks to those who already volunteered, but need about 10 more. We’re hoping to deliver this weekend, but waiting on the printing press to finish them. All get the Crier and it will be clearly marked on the route guide who also is to receive the directory. Please let me know ASAP if you will help. Community service credit is available for those needing such.
