  1. sunday’s discussion of tyler park improvements is sponsored by the neighborhood group, but metro parks’ public hearing/showing about the improvements to both tyler park and the hogan’s fountain area of cherokee are TONIGHT – thursday. this is the last of a series of public hearings so if anyone has comments, this is your chance.

  2. That’s an interesting article you posted about parks in S. California in the NYT. I have had a similar question regarding the wind turbines popping up all over the world which is, ‘How long does it take for a wind turbine to generate the amount of electricity that went into producing and transporting it?’. Google is letting me down on this one…
