Earhart Overlay

Yesterday, after years of asking, the CPC issued a report and the City Council voted in favor of added Earhart Boulevard to the Inner City Urban Corridor District. Now development on Earhart will be governed by the same rules that govern development on Carrollton and Claiborne. 2 other streets and bound our little neighborhood.

Bottle Bombs

Information was confirmed with Sergeant Kirton, our NOPD Community Outreach Coordinator. He states there is documentation that this is true.
Take a second to read this warning....and pass it along to your family, friends and kids!


Anybody that sees a plastic bottle in their yard would think nothing of picking it up to throw it away. Looks like these things are starting to pop up around the U.S. Check the Snopes web site below, it's pretty scary.

1. A plastic bottle with a cap (Like a normal water bottle).
2. A little Drano.
3. A little water.
4. A small piece of foil.
5. Disturb it by moving it; and BOOM (Less than 30 seconds)!!
6. No fingers left and other serious effects to your face, eyes, etc.

People are finding these bombs in mailboxes and in their yards, just waiting for someone to pick it up intending to put it in the trash. It takes about 30 seconds to blow after you move the thing.
