Hello everyone... Does anybody know what is being constructed in the Pinnacle Park development to the left of Lowe's? Land is being cleared in the corner lot between Wal-Mart and Lowe's. One of the Lowe's employees said two retail stores were being built -- Best Buy and Ross. Could this be true???

We used to have a neighborhood restaurant called "City Harvest" on Stewart. Great breakfasts and al fresco dinners. Sadly, its owner/operator closed the place down several years ago -- anyone know if she's set up shop somewhere else yet? Or has she stayed retired? Anyone know the recipe for "Jack's Been Bitchin' Eggs"?

We are new home owners on Clinton Ave. We have noticed that several streets in the area have light posts lining the streets/sidewalks. Does anyone know why we do not have these on Clinton..? Or how we go about requesting them for our street?

I don't know the direct answer to your question but here are a couple of thoughts. I have learned that light posts are the province of TXU Electric. You can reach this firm at 972-791-2888. Perhaps they can offer guidance. If they are no help, try the City's Planning and Development group, 214-670-4118. If neither is any help, try 311 (after taking a double dose of patience). Good luck!

Re: Antique light posts. There are three antique light posts in the vicinity of the intersectin of Belleau and Windomere. There's a little park-like area there at that intersection. The light poles were installed there, one at a time, over a period of several years, by the neighbors in that immediate area. One neighbor put sollicitaion letters in everyone's mailbox saying he would collect checks from each of us until enough was collected to pay TXU to install the pole (with underground wiring only!) -- and that, if insufficient donations were received, all checks would be returned to the owner. He served as our "escrow agent" pending receipt of sufficient donations. As an organization, KNU kicked in $200 in support of the local effort. So, bottom line, it's a fun, constructive project and it is easily doable - - but you have to be willing to invest yourself in the effort and not wait for "someone elese in the neighborhood" to do it for you. Circulate your own fliers to the local neighbors to be affected by the light pole - - collect the money - - contract with TXU - - and it will be done. Waiting for someone else to do it may mean it will never happen.
