HeraldTrib Today: Jan. 23, 2008

We have a couple items to report this week, with many more expected for next week; I’ll keep you posted, as you know.

First of all, the apartment building at 461 N. Thomas St. (just north of N. Henderson Road) will be coming down, to be replaced, most likely, with another, larger apartment building. The story is below.

We have police notes.

Also, I am very happy to report that on our companion site (the H&H Report), we have our first guest bloggers—Cole and Leo (6 and 4, respectively). The H&H Report is a reviews site for kids, by kids. It’s something we set up just a couple weeks ago, and the response so far has been very good.

A number of you have tried to post comments, but could not because you do not have gmail accounts. That has been fixed. Now, anyone can post. I will be looking at those comments, though, and pulling anything that I deem inappropriate.

We have three reviews up there now. The two latest are “Alvin and the Chipmunks” and “The Water Horse: Legend of the Deep.” Last week’s post included “The Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything” (which has a new comment).

Make sure you check out the posts, and then get your kids to write something for it—reviews of movies, plays, DVDs, books, events, whatever. Email me what you have.

I have to point out the comment to this post about streetlights that ran last week. I had written that lights were out at the corner of N. Henderson and N. Glebe roads. The commenter ("Neil") gave a link to a county site, appropriately named "The Street Lights Report Form," that lets you tell them where lights are out. Excellent, and thanks, Neil.

One last thing. Check out the site later this week as I will have a survey for you to take—it will ask about the retail space at the intersection of N. Pershing Drive and N. Glebe Road. Look for it, it will be fun.
