I think what is lacking today that was in place years ago is community. In the past most people knew the other people in their communities. If they saw a child in danger they would know the parent wasn't nearby and be able to act. If they saw a child up to mischief they knew how to discipline them or contact the parents so they could discipline the child.
Today I barely know the people one street over. I talk more to people in other states via social media than I do the people a few hundred feet from me.
Someone will innovate and solve this problem soon I think. (It might even be me.)
My horrible, half-baked idea: National local events.
Just like the 4th of July brings people to barbecue and fireworks, we need a national holiday that brings local communities together. The funding could come from local businesses and corporations who want to foment good will. Basically it's an excuse for everyone to get out and talk to others around them.
It needs more than just the blurb above to be successful. It would need extensive organization and something more than "meet the neighbors" to motivate others to get out and actually do that. Which is why its more sentiment than actionable.
Thanks for the gold, but apparently my idea is already implemented as something called "National Night Out" according to several posters. There is also an app called Next Door that looks promising.
Half-baked idea #2:
An app/event that is meant to find the "best" person in the community and promote them to the next level. This could be a talent or skill. The community would hold an open contest and then decide who to support that year. That person would then get limited funding, social mentions, and a lot of suggestions. It might even be a way to get someone without funds to college.
I saw a similar looking dog on Nextdoor. The dog was found on Arena. My first time posting a link so I hope this works. I don’t know how to post a picture and the lady who found the dog didn’t leave a number. Just said to contact her through Nextdoor. Her name is Maria Duenas if that helps.
Nextdoor found dog
If you are in the sea, and all you have is a weight, let go.
You have yourself, and you have your sobriety, and with those, you can do so much!
What do you want? Let's get you working towards it?
If you're lonely, there are plenty of community activities around to get involved in. nextdoor.com is like facebook for neighbourhoods, I found a walking group through it. What are you interested in? Can you look up AA meetings, to meet some new people?
Can you volunteer at a soup kitchen or shelter of some kind? Refugees are in need of a lot of help right now, I just volunteered to assemble flat pack furniture to help! While you're helping other people, and looking after yourself by keeping active, you can meet cool people. I found a local sewing group making masks, and a litter picking group who meet up, take a walk, then go for coffee and cake. There is so much around you, once you start looking.
I mean this more sincerely than ever before: You need to do you, boo.
Looks like someone who was a witness to this incident posted on NextDoor:
You are referring to this post by Sierra Orozco.
It's publicly posted by her on Nextdoor but here is her linkedin:
She worked for Governor Jan Brewer in Arizona and the state house of reps during the time and just up until recently. She interned with Jan Brewer during this time: https://plotagainstimmigrants.com/network/jan-brewer/
She basically said that her neighbor was walking his dog when a couple of black men pulled up and told him to get in to the car brandishing shotguns (like what an 8th grader would say making up a story) and took his phone, wallet, keys, and told his dog to settle down while he begged for his life. He in turn walked back to towards home a mile away and went to her because he couldn't get into his house. Police of course wouldn't show up because they don't do shit and amazingly no police report. The neighbor in question is a disbarred Travis country prosecutor who also posted. After neighbors called bs, asked for a police report he threw the f-bomb down multipe times and deleted his post. It didn't happen and it's been happening all week of these POS grifter/shills on Nextdoor. These reports will mysteriously disappear after the election is over. Don't trust a single thing you hear on Nextdoor this week. Matt and company are working it. I'm not going to call the prosecutor out because he had the decency to delete his post.
Skip to 1:43 for her take down. One of the school board members who voted to ban books was arrested in 2019 for reckless handling of a firearm. Thankfully, the board voted 5-2 to rescind their prior vote!
On 11/23/2019, Deputy S. Norris served Kirk E. Twigg (61) of Spotsylvania on an open permitted warrant for reckless handling of a firearm
Related, I promise.
I was testing out this app Nextdoor (neighborhood social networking). It auto-assigns you to a neighborhood, I was filed in one that went further down into Savin Hill.
I swear, had to leave that because of annoying house moms blasting out "black kids on bikes" alerts every other day.
(Not criminal activity, "saw them hanging out under a tree on this street")
My guess is the shithead let off some fireworks when you're not allowed to. Neighbour, who is probably Asian, might be gay, sent an email reporting him, or maybe complained on "nextdoor.com", and butthurt sellf-entitled shithead writes a sign and sits out the front because it's not like he has anything important to do, except his sister.
This needs to be higher up.
This happened around the corner from me and the dude is a major creep.
Every time it's posted he gets a ton of praise, which perhaps is warranted for his post-fight etiquette but it does not remove the fact the guy is a psychopath who follows women around and was arrested with a machete.
There is a huge "neighborhood watch" like thread on this dude on nextdoor.
Edit: Here's the thread on nextdoor if anyone is interested.
found some info
Arrest of Sexual Battery Suspect
Irvine Police Department Watch Commander from Irvine Police Department · 59 min ago
Photo from Irvine Police Department Watch C.
Last night at approximately 11:30 p.m., IPD officers responded to reports of a female being assaulted in the common area of 50 Prism. Officers arrived and observed an off-duty peace officer from a San Bernardino County agency struggling with a male, who was later determined to be the suspect of a sexual battery against a 17-year-old female and an adult woman. IPD officers were able to subdue the suspect and take him into custody.
It was ultimately determined that the off-duty peace officer heard a woman screaming for help and for someone to call the police. The peace officer armed himself with his firearm to investigate what was happening. Bystanders pointed to the suspect and the peace officer attempted to detain the him. A struggle ensued and the peace officer accidentally discharged a single round from his firearm while trying to control the suspect. The discharged round hit a nearby object and there were no injuries to the suspect or bystanders.
The victims and the suspect were known to each other and there is no danger to the community.
The suspect was arrested for sexual battery and resisting arrest. He was booked at Orange County Jail.
Be careful out there. There was a gunpoint robbery in Weiland Park under the guise of making a utility company offer recently.
He was found. His mother confirmed it in a message to a Facebook group.
SFPD should really update on Twitter since they asked the public for help.
Not sure this link will work for anyone but it is from Nextdoor.
The vast majority of people don't, but there's been a weird trickle of the ones that do coming in everyday. Unfortunately I don't think they fit the r/portland demographic, but I'm not exposing myself to nextdoor.com just to rant into the void.
It was a temporary policy during covid: https://nextdoor.com/agency-post/hi/honolulu/honolulu-department-of-parks-and-recreation/guidelines-for-daily-park-canopy-permits-162430396/
and didn't mean you had to rent from a commercial company, just was limiting total #
that system is now gone.
if there are commercial activities on beaches/in city parks, report it because it's likely unauthorized.
If you're on Nextdoor, there's a lengthy thread about this guy - https://nextdoor.com/news_feed?post=189978254&add_reply=post_189978254
And here's a previous news story referenced - https://wjla.com/news/local/maryland-man-drugs-rapes-woman-sex-trafficking-victim
No, it's happening more now. I blame the Internet and social media, before these kinds of people would be gently "corrected" by their neighbors and friends, now that they have "friends" on social media who are similarly entitled and crazy, they have someone to tell them "it's not *you* who are wrong, it's those *other* people who are wrong!" Just go on to Nextdoor.com and read the complaints about black people walking down my street kids screaming and playing in their backyard kids playing basketball on their driveway yada yada yada it's just one long slogfest of entitled and crazy.
The "no soliciting" signs are not legally binding and the only thing it looks like you can do is if they are on private property and asked to leave and they don't, then it's trespassing. Simply soliciting isn't a crime in NC.
So my "Nextdoor.com" feed has been blowing up for a few weeks now. I suspect there is a Facebook, or Telegram, or whatever platform, that has groups of folks that then have decided to post on other sites with "reasonable" sounding reports and not a flood gate, but enough to get folks to the Polls with the second thought of: "Well, I don't know, I better vote Yes just in case"
Of course this would not be the first time something like this has happened...
Someone on nextdoor posted about a plant thief in the birchwood area last week. I think I saw a comment about a person who is notorious for this.
Per nextdoor/a comment in r/sanfrancisco, the criminals were described as two blonde white girls, a black man, and possibly a white man
Not sure if you can see these posts, but lots of bee-keepers in the Pasadena area on my Nextdoor have been offering to relocate bees for free
On Next Door, one of the neighbors reported epd welfare checks sometimes multiple times a months going back all the way to July.
Edit: link to post
Not the first guy in his club to die trying to pull a trick too:
No doubt they've setup another GoFundMe for this newest fallen member of their obnoxious adrenaline cult.
Here was a post on Nextdoor with more info:
>Beavers employee here. Just want to prevent any misinformation or rumours. Suzanne's post is true. It's wonderful that Doug and Cheryl Beavers get a well-deserved retirement & could sell it to someone who will actually continue to run it as a grocery rather than bulldoze it for unaffordable condos. We are the 4th small-town grocery that this new owner has bought. Two are called Fresh Foods (Torrington WY & Gering NB) the other one kept the original name of Brush Grocery Kart. (Brush CO). We dont know if they will change the name. Of course there will be changes, but probably mostly good ones and maybe even some fun updates. I will miss the Beavers family and at the same time I look forward to seeing the store evolve.
There are a bunch of morons in my nextdoor.com feed talking about not paying their property taxes to the county because they are mad at the city. I hope a bunch of them do it and find out what happens next.
As soon as I read this, I knew this guy was one either a) one of the local "sovereign citizen" drones or b) one of our "you can't tell me what to do when its inconvenient to me, I'm free" MAGA asshats that we seem to be getting more and more of in this state recently.

Not sure if this is the right area but figured I'd pass it on.
> We just witnessed a man have a bike accident on the capital city trail in Fitchburg today near Syene road intersection. We hope he is ok but it looked like a head injury.
the right-turn only signs and barriers were just recently put up
apparently this intersection has been a problem for quite some time. you can see a lot of crashes on cammer's youtube channel
Get on nextdoor.com. I'm sure you'll find the complainer there. If you don't, it's still a valuable tool to learn about missing pets, speeders in the neighborhood, and which neighbors are closet racists.
The exception was when I angrily stomped away from nextdoor.com after being targetted by anti-vaxxers upset that I was defending science. I was like, "why are you as a platform siding with anti-vaxxers and sanctioning *me* for presenting actual science?" and they had no real response for that so I'm like "fuck it, delete my account." Good riddance. Just a bunch of old racist anti-science nutbags, and those are the moderators.
"Generally, the gun violence is retaliatory. So, it’s people who are kind of engaged in these ongoing arguments either over music or social media, and the availability of guns makes those kind of arguments deadly," she said."
Which is a way of saying, "yeah, there's violence, but it's mostly in three neighborhoods, and none of those are in the Nextdoor.com groups doing the most crying about it."
Good for her.
I do believe his name is Oscar.
He lives in the halfway house by Lucky on Mathilda.
Several people have complained about him but the SPD always say he hasn't ever hurt anyone and is therefore considered to be harmless.
There's a long post about him on nextdoor if you've got an account.
I've gotten a couple great suggestions from my neighbors on nextdoor.com (If you've never heard of it, it's a social media site for neighborhoods.)
A couple sent me pictures of the work and one neighbor that I'd never talked to before invited me over to see the results in their basement. Apparently my neighborhood is really friendly, but YMMV
Possibly. There is a known energy reseller -- company name escapes me at the moment -- who sends their people door-to-door frequently. Lots of posts about it on Nextdoor.com. They will say they just want to "look at your bill" and it will "only take a minute". What they wind up doing is switching the unsuspecting person's energy provider to that third party company.
These teens must live near us (we are in Foster Powell) and they have been terrorizing people in our neighborhood amongst others nearby (BD, Mt. Scott Arleta, etc). This may not be a city wide trend with teens but there is absolutely a trend of these specific dipsh*ts getting away with the worst kind of behavior. It’s been going on for months and they’re committing actual crimes, not kiddie antics. I know kids are kids but this is not pandemic fever. 😳
Go to nextdoor.com. Set up an account in his neighborhood. Many people on nextdoor offer helps for neighbors. I'm sure someone there will be willing to do grocery shopping for your dad. Good luck!
Nextdoor had a post about a toy aussie on colorado bvld
Ugh sorry dude. I'm sure you already know this but keep your eye on craigslist for it. If you are on Nextdoor.com I would also post about it. I've seen many cars found via neighbors on that site. And I got my bicycle back once via craigslist over a month later.
Deterrents?? Take a few clearly marked Amazon boxes that have been clearly cut while neatly opening them...place a few loosely packed unwanted yard sale items...reseal back with clear tape neatly and place back on the front door...or near the garage door...heck out by the road under the mail box! keep the cameras on them and make note of the color vehicle and description of individuals taking said boxes and BAM! Couple days or a few weeks of that crap will deter most of the package thieves around. It will help clear the clutter round the house as an added feature. As an added bonus...clear out the kitty litter box and place that in there. Gather the household garbage clearly making sure your name is not listed and use that. If you really want to do them in...Have the ladies of the house place their monthly napkins in a smaller sized box for a few days...I'm telling ya...give them a run for they money!!! Steal on my brotha'!! Get a nextdoor.com account and post your story there with a link to the YouTube video you post of the video you got on the security cameras and screen caps you can post directly to nextdoor with a clear description of when, where and any other info about what you can find on the perps!
There’s a post in NextDoor for Bangor where nurses are trying to fight it. here it is.
If nurses want to be respected as professionals, they need to start acting like professionals.
I reposted this because I didn't include a photo on my first try. Basically my wife and I found this dog last night and have been taking care of him for the time being. My wife took him to the vet this morning and got some info from the chip but we haven't been successful in contacting the alleged owner. Chip says he's registered in Pasadena, tx but that's quite a ways away from my neck of the woods.
If you or someone you know is missing your boxer pup, please reach out to me here. This is the link to the NextDoor post: https://nextdoor.com/post/97605794?init_source=copy_link_share
Thanks in advance for any help!
Yes, it is your pool. Yes, it is your house.
Never underestimate just how bitchy and whiny neighbors can become. Take NextDoor.com for example. All it is, are neighborhoods bitching about this, that, and everything they can find to whine about. If you think this doesn't get attention, sorely mistaken. Understand that neighbors will likely bitch about your naked pool use, how it impacts their children, and even a petition may form which goes right to City Hall. Do you have an HOA? Watch the fuck out. Those HOA bastards can fine you to death, take your home, and do all of that while sipping drinks on a beach resort with your hard earned HOA dues... while they hire Jose Cuervo to do some landscaping, plant some flowers, you know - to make it seem like your HOA dues went to something useful. Jose is paid pennies on the dollar, btw.
You might just be surprised as to what neighbors will find offensive and complain about. In short, if it were a book of things people get offended about in 2018, it would stretch from LA to NY.
Post it in the Mid City or nearby area Nextdoor. It's more eyes on the lookout out though I truly hate many of the people on that site.
Also, if you haven't already, check with all of your neighbors on your block to see if they have any external cameras facing the street. Then, also check with ProjectNOLA for possible cameras in the area.
Besides sending it to the police, I'd get the boss to join Nextdoor and post the link to the video there. That way, the whole neighborhood knows what's going on and can keep an eye out. https://nextdoor.com/
you have to call your sacramento sewer district and report it then they will have someone come out here’s a Nextdoor post about it
First of all, welcome to the neighborhood!
The Lincoln District around where you are is great for walking, I personally have never felt worried in that area. The neighborhood watch groups (Lincoln LAWGS on FB and Nextdoor) are both very active, and if something starts to go wrong, it's dealt with pretty quickly. I bought pepper spray for self defense when I first moved in because "OMG the Tacoma is gonna get ya!", but I don't even know where it is now because I've never felt the need to carry it.
Walk on down to 43rd and Pac to hit up Connie's Donuts in the morning, and Casa-U-Betcha for lunch, dinner, or a nightcap. There are endless little Ma & Pa shops near 38th or Yakima, I'd just start walking to wherever is closest to your new house, and then branch out from there. Best part? No need to drive! The emerging brewery district is also an optimistic half hour walk downhill from you. Hike there during rush hour then bus/rideshare/lime scooter home is a pretty cheap date night.
Gas Station Park will be just south of you can has an interesting history, but it's more of a kid's playlot. The much more picturesque gem is Lincoln Park on 37th which has an arboretum similar to Wright Park. If you're up for a longer walk, head over the 34th street bridge to McKinley park to get some urban forest.
People will rag on it, but the Lincoln Distinct is changing rapidly for the better. I've only been here a few years, and already some streets are almost unrecognizable from when I moved in. A few neighbors of mine have been here for 20+ years, and they all love the direction it's headed.
apparently this intersection has been a problem for quite some time
edit: this video seemed familiar, and sure enough, a lot of the videos from the Youtuber's channel have made it to /r/roadcam before
Post from Nextdoor
Not sure if everyone will be able to see this on nextdoor (some posts are restricted to certain neighborhoods). This person’s dog was attacked by an off-leash dog. The elderly dog owner couldn’t control the off leash dog. Not sure if this led to the village’s decision or if there were other incidents but here is one for folks asking.
I'm probably commenting incorrectly I'm new sorry. This is it ⬇️ , I live in w.s and was helping out searching for a little wandering dog for 2 days posted here. My heart is breaking for you, I have 3 little ones. Someone has to know this dog or witnessed it.
From Ricky Garvey who works with Manny Lopez, Robert’s VA case worker: “The issue appears to be that LASD didn’t coordinate With the VA when they dropped him off And he is not eligible for Medical or regular housing services Due to his OTH discharge status So he could only be put in a bridge program “
Obviously, Robert was fully aware of that and his discharge status which prohibits him from regular VA benefits. This isn’t the first time Robert has dealt with VA outreach. He just didn’t mention any of it to LASD??
I agree this will not "save the world", there is not such thing. But a journey of a thousand steps can only start in the place you are. You can't expect Bob the accountant to become blacksmith and join your resilient community if you don't even know his name. And when things suck big time, they suck less if there is a sliver of kindness in your community. When my son was in the hospital, life sucked a little less every time I walked past the donation bin and remembered somebody cared.
In my experience, a great starting point are neighborhood associations. Check if your area has one. Ours has projects to help seniors, clean parks, donate children books for summer readings.. They are not huge things, but it gives a small sense of resilience. The monthly briefings with our police department on crime prevention/crime development in our area are also quite useful.
I'm not into social media, but some of our neighbors like to use nextdoor.
Does the spa offer other services aside form hair removal and manis/pedis? Because massages are so worth it. If not, you have a couple of choices. You can ask the spa if they can break up the gift card into seven gift cards and you are set for gifts for other people for a while. If not, you can always donate it to a charity organization that does silent auctions for good causes. Schools, churches, women's foundations - they all have those kinds of functions. You can also sell it on FB marketplace or nextdoor.com (if in the US).
Food, festivals, coffee, walking, bicycle riding, these are things locals are into. A traditional approach is to invite your neighbor over for coffee, and this method is beloved and sacred here.
Get on Nextdoor.com. It's pretty popular here, and it's a good way to figure out what's going on and get involved.
It can be hard to break in here because the locals tend to be insular, but they're friendly. Learn the local foods. Olneyville Hot Weenies. Del's Lemonade. Seafood. Coffee syrup (betcha didn't know THAT was a thing before moving here!) and so on. Go to the festivals, there are a ton of em. Be nice to all the grandmas. They have grandkids that are probably your age, and that's a good way to meet people. It's a two-fer, because grandma is probably really cool too in her own right.
And let me circle back to coffee. Holy damn. RI loves coffee. You'd think the Boston Tea Party happened nearby.
The bear was actually spotted in Littleton, Englewood and then finally caught in Denver! A few of my neighbors got some footage of the bear in their yards and uploaded to NextDoor.
Bear Spotted in Progress Park Area
Hello! I am part of a Board Gaming and D&D group that is always looking for new players. We had a meet up last weekend and we are hoping to set up another one soon and you are welcome to join us! We just got our Facebook and Nextdoor groups set up, please join us on there so you can know when our next meet up is.
Also, my wife and I moved here about a year ago and she is alway looking for new friends. DM me and I will give you her info so you can can reach out if you want.
I'm not sure if your area has Nextdoor.com but around the end of summer beginning of the school year I see lots of parents looking for options for before school transportation and carpooling type situations. You might consider checking with other parents there if your area has that to see if you can find another parent in the area willing to help?
> He threw water on my car and followed me and kept trying to hit my car with his
He committed a felony. See: California Vehicle code 23110 b.
If only you had a dash camera that captured his plates.
> Anyone else experiences this type of hostility when driving?
All the time, that's why if Mr. D-Bag in his lifted pickup truck starts to tailgate me, I hit the brakes. They quickly back off and go around.
I just did a quick google search to see if police even released those details, and it's even more ridiculous then one would think!
> Location #1-
> 533 Vehicles Screened
> 1 DUI-Alcohol suspects arrested
> 5 Drivers cited/arrested for operating a vehicle unlicensed or while suspended/revoked
533 vehicles stopped for 1 DUI arrest!!! WTF? This is a good use of resources???
> Location #2
> 157 Vehicles Screened
> 1 DUI-Alcohol suspects arrested
> 4 Drivers cited/arrested for operating a vehicle unlicensed or while suspended/revoked.
1 single DUI arrest. A great waste of resources if you ask me!
I'd be willing to bet my left nut, that these results are typical of the rest of the US.
Thanks, yes, by all means feel free to pass along this information (this reddit post or this NextDoor link: https://nextdoor.com/p/SG3h3SxLtZcD?utm_source=share&extras=NjAyMjkxNzE%3D)
Thanks for the offer for flyers, let me check with the family. I would assume they have already been flyering.
> My yard is all garden veg and fruits. Very usable space. Houses so close will block the available sun I get. I like high prices of the houses. Keeps the neighborhoods nice. People actually want to keep their expensive places from falling apart. There is cheaper housing in plenty of other cities.
Is this NIMBY bingo?
Oil changes are easy and cheap. Youtube your make/model/year ... hypertech oil at walmart is cheap and highly rated.
Also youtube brakes ... pads and rotors are quick and easy to change.
If you don't have confidence, check out nextdoor.com ... it's like a social media site limited to your neighborhood. You could probably find someone on there to fix your brakes, at your house, for a good price. I bought my last set of brakes on Amazon -- brakes plus rotors for all 4 wheels with excellent ratings -- for a little more than 1 rotor costed at Advanced Auto.
- my son. he and his friends were there.
- the superintendent who emailed all the families in the district last night
- nextdoor.com where there's a huge thread on this with other parents
I live in Hamden as well.
Are you on Nextdoor.com? People always post missing pets on there, and it narrows the town down into smaller "neighborhoods" - your neighborhood and I think it's the 13 closest neighborhoods will see your post. But the people who live directly in your neighborhood can might be extra vigilant, and more inclined to look since they are very nearby.
Hamden is pretty huge. What is the nearest 2 street intersection from where you live?
Years ago when our mini was missing, we printed door hangers with her pic on it with 100.00 reward. And hung them on home doors in the neighborhood.
We got her back in a few hours.
Also a good place to look is, nextdoor.com. That website helped me find my giant schnauzer a few times when he broke out the back yard.
They won't come to you. You have to go to them.
- volunteer , Things like L.A. River cleanups, Homeless count,
- classes -- Junior college is relatively affordable here and offer so many subjects.
- Search online for interest you have like, hiking, reading, politics, art, photography, ......meetups and classes.
- Nextdoor.com connects you with neighbors in your immediate vicinity. People sometimes post things there happen

A lot are along the loop trail, some more close to the visitor's center, and there are randoms sleeping on benches. There are RVs around the perimeter, and all along Commodore.
Check out Nextdoor Magnolia- folks are sharing lots of specific info.
I hear a lot of complaining on Nextdoor.com that homeless services attracts an 'unfair' number of homeless so our area. Heartless nimbies complain to police and govt about groups of homeless gathering to get food saying it's scary and dangerous for kids or some such. Many areas of California have enacted laws that make it difficult to feed homeless, like you need to have a licensed commercial kitchen and the food needs to be prepared by licensed food handlers and be prepackaged etc. Then they make additional rules about when and how and where you are allowed to distribute the food. The laws become strict enough that almost no orgs or groups have the capability of meeting the standards. THe govt claims it's for 'safety' of the homeless folks even though there have been no cases of homeless being given any bad food etc. So it's a solution to a claimed problem that never existed, basically it's to try to drive out the homeless while not admitting that's the real goal.
I'm in your neighborhood, right around the corner from you, actually.
You can also post on Nextdoor.com and submit a report to Animal Control. I lost a cat in Feb of 2021 and it was ultimately Animal Control who found her.
Also, it helps to walk around the neighborhood and call out his name. Go down streets and alleyways both. Talk to the people you pass and ask if they've seen him (I wasn't able to find my cat this way, but I met some pretty cool people during my search, and they helped to soothe me. The people I talked to helped me get out of my head and stop imagining the worst).
Also, put up posters w/ his picture and your contact information at major intersections in the area.
I hope you find him. Hopefully he's simply trapped inside someone's shed or garage, and he'll make his way home.
This is gonna sound counter intuitive but I’d suggest posting in Facebook’s Roxborough Rants and Raves.. It can be a foul toxic swamp of rank stupidity and aggressive aberrant behavior BUT there’s a good counter current of anti-assholery as well.
The other place is Nextdoor. I’ve seen a fair number of Roommate wanted posts, for example.
From Nextdoor, there's another frightening video on the thread: https://nextdoor.com/p/b2GSW-LJYtFC/c/633739915?utm_source=share
> A vehicular assault, hit and run Sunday afternoon 8/8 off of Shepard canyon. The video is of the third attempt at hitting a family driving in the Piedmont Pines hills Sunday evening around 5:50 PM. This conflict began over the victims yelling for the assailant to slow down in the residential area around blind turns. The perpetrator drove a silver, Chevy Bolt and appeared to be male, twenties and of Asian descent. If anyone recognizes the car and driver, please share so we can send to the authorities.
Done and Done!
I disagree. I live in small town America and my town's police are fantastic. They maintain a friendly presence on Nextdoor.com and Facebook, and when I was having trouble with teenagers climbing over my 6' fence and taking a (trespassing) shortcut through my yard, the officer who took my complaint had a hunch who the miscreants were and said "I'll have a talk with their parents." His hunch must have been right, never had any issues after that day. That's good community policing.
I don't know how to share a screenshot, but there is someone sharing screenshares of their security camera footage from 4am that night at 27th and G. I honestly can barely make the person out. Hopefully you are able to view the neighborhood's nextdoor here: https://nextdoor.com/news_feed/?post=133486041 scroll down to Ryan Presley. I asked that they share the video with police.
Sign up on 'nextdoor' when you get an address here and your wildest garage sale dreams will come true!
Yeah...craigslist and FB are still pretty common to get good hits.
Lots of old skool homeowners still just staple a sign the night before onto a pole.
Big neighbourhood one in the highlands/bonnycastle on May11th.
"CBS Films Inc. and the creators of “The Hangover” and “Bad Moms” are coming to Eureka Valley/Castro to film scenes for a feature film on the intersection of Sanchez Street and 16th Street on Wednesday January 23rd, Thursday January 24th and Friday January 25th, 2019. "
I see people reach out to go have coffee, lunch or go for walks together on Nextdoor.com. Just put a post up that you are looking for friends and to PM you if you'd like to meet up. Start scheduling your life and living. People post all the time that they need a friend and lots of people in my neighborhood always reach out because they are lonely too. The nice thing about Nextdoor is that it is your neighbors.
I've started looking at all the events in my city and attending all of the free events off of facebook. I'm older and when I became a single empty nester I found reading books made me less lonely. Also check with your library calendar, I have recently started doing this and there are tons of activities there too.
Mormonism ruins us with too many assignments/less money and we never had time to live like normal people. I'm trying to fix that by putting forth an effort to live. I'm an introvert and I have to push myself out the door, but it's been worth it everytime I get out of my house.
Yeah, they were installed very recently. From this update on June 30th:
> The City of San Jose Department of Transportation, in conjunction with the City of Campbell, is planning to install temporary right-turn-only half-teardrop islands on Campbell Avenue at the intersection of Campbell Avenue and Leigh Avenue within the next one to two weeks. Installation of signs, striping and temporary curbing is expected to take two to three days. After installation, The Department of Transportation will monitor traffic on Campbell Avenue and nearby neighborhood streets to determine the impacts of the temporary installation.
> The temporary islands are expected to be in place for nine to twelve months. Data will be collected and evaluated during this time. My office will provide updates on this project as it progresses.
Do you need a door-to-door solicitation permit in Boston? I know a lot of mass towns require it and involves a criminal background check. Here's a nice one from these folks in Quincy last year.
If you're in the US there's a site called Nextdoor which is often recommended for finding lost pets.
I haven't used it myself (no pets), but when people put ads on Craigslist, they almost always get referred to Nextdoor and seem to get good results.
I tell this to everyone because it's true. If you haven't already, join Nextdoor and post this there -- they seem to have a higher success rate for finding lost pets since the groups are done by neighborhood.
Check the surrounding hood just in case his car was not running maybe he parked it nearby and ran. Might not be his car. Also post on Nextdoor.com for that area if you are local.
It appears that many of the home sales and rentals are for non-primary residences.
According to the newsletter we get from a local realtor, in September more than half the home sales in SB city (not county) were not primary residences. On Nextdoor.com in my neighborhood someone is looking for a house to rent (yearly lease) for their sister who lives in Italy, where she already owns 2 homes, and simply wants a place to rent to visit "once in a while".
Looks like his owners posted on Nextdoor.com
His name is Benji and his neighborhood is Cureton [ East Hills Dr. and Fleming Ave.]
You're not kidding. Have you seen the people who live on Honeysuckle Drive who are opposing development of an adjacent block within the UGB? These people live in million dollar homes built less than 20 years ago on cleared forest land. They're arguing that building homes right next door to them constitutes "wanton disregard for the preservation of current ecological systems." So what about your house then? And you're on gofundme? Seriously? You already have more money than god. If they advertise showing up at a council meeting to oppose the annexation I'll gladly go testify in favor just for the opportunity to shit all over them.
https://nextdoor.com/ is kind of what you would get if you kitbashed Reddit communities together with Craigslist, and then made entry into specific neighborhoods/"subreddits" in the site dependent upon your address, grouping you into a posting community with your nearby neighbors. Mine for instance in the near to downtown suburbs, groups me with people in about a 1.5 mile radius. In dense places like NYC, it can group people as tightly as 2 - 4 blocks at a time.
It's a platform highly effective at keeping a community repository of local information, and in more organized neighborhoods, people pass around and share things like tools, musical instruments, furniture, clothes, etc, and keep things within their communities in much the same way OP is talking about.
I think I found the owner on Nextdoor. Not sure if this link will work but I can facilitate contact if necessary: https://nextdoor.com/post/172674982?init_source=copy_link_share
He posted about the theft around 3 weeks ago. I commented on his post with a link to this post just in case. Thanks for looking out!
This is from my NextDoor daily digest email, another convert-
<strong>Finally took delivery of our Model Y last week!! Anybody else? :).</strong> Gotta love Elon's EQP -- that's End of Quarter Push :D We got ours last week.... not only the greatest vehicle I've ever experienced, easily the greatest *THING* I've ever owned. It's not just an altogether better, newer car from our previous (2017 GLC), it's like I went to sleep and woke up 20 or 30 years in the future. It's an absolute STEP CHANGE improvement to any other automotive experience, full stop. Mind completely, utterly blown. (Also, this thing is absolutely going to cannibalize Model 3 and X sales the same way the 3 cannibalized S sales.)
BLACK LIVES MATTER SE DENVER SOLIDARITY WALK - TONIGHT | 6:30 PM. Join southeast Denver families and Councilwoman Black for this family friendly solidarity walk to support the black community and encourage our community to talk about race, to our families, friends and neighbors. The walk will begin at Southmoor Park and end at Rosamond Park. A few guidelines: Entire families are welcome, and strollers & wagons encouraged! Homemade signs are great! Please practice social distancing during the walk and wear masks. Individuals who are not sure they can walk the entire distance or would feel more comfortable at home are encouraged to support the walk from sidewalks, front porches and driveways on the route. The 1.2 mile walk will conclude with a moment of silence in Rosamond Park – the walk will be finished no later than 8 PM.
please don't say that you're stuck with it for 10+ years, i think that will do nothing but dampen your spirit. i totally agree with MiddleFroggy and SpiritofJosefa - you can rehome him easily. you can post it on Nextdoor , i see plenty of dog adoption related posts over there. I donno about Facebook though, since I detest FB w/a passion.
Now get up and energize yourself to rehome the dog. umm...DO it! 😀
I believe it's already posted to NextDoor.com and to PACC, just signal boosting. They are harmless idiots. They may answer to Sokka and Katara or they may just assume you are a sheep and try to herd you. Just herd them right back. If you find them, let me know and I can help them get home.
All remaining Trump supporter's are insane. I'm on the site 'nextdoor.com' where people post about lost dogs and does anyone know a handyman. Today someone is spamming it with 'Yes I'm a Trump supporter!' posts which get removed and followed up with 'Keep removing my posts I don't care!' unhinged rants. I can't imagine a politician so having me in their thrall that I need to rage post my support. It's never about 'well, let's see what the tax cuts do long term', it's always "Hillary Rotten Clinton and Demonrats..." Like 21 year old Bieber fans in reverse.
If you have Facebook, join and post in the Austin Lost Pets group. Also, if you're on Nextdoor, make sure to post there as well as that will alert people in the neighborhood to be on the lookout for the dog.
I feel like an old fart recommending this but Facebook Marketplace if you’ve got Facebook. I always see people who are overloaded with spider* plants selling them for as low as $2 for smaller starters to $30 giant “I’ve had this for 5+ years but I’m moving” one
Edit: this lady on Nextdoor is having a porch sale
Have you joined https://nextdoor.com/ ? If not, I'd do that right away. Take a picture of the tagged truck and post that for your neighborhood to see. Someone in the neighborhood may know something. You may not be the only person experiencing stuff like this.
One of my old coworkers has a small family business selling soaps and honey and other various things. The honey is some of the best I've ever had and they just keep making better and better soaps. I've gotten their gift basket the last few years and split it up to send to family members outside the state. Here's their info:
I created a YIMBY group for Minneapolis on Nextdoor! Join, tell your friends, and make content with us! I want to bring a strong YIMBY presence to the otherwise conservative Nextdoor community.
!ping USA-MN 💙⛵️
Also I just don’t want to be the only poster 🙃
As terrible as Nextdoor can be, they do have a Help Map: https://nextdoor.com/help_map/
You might also try posting on Nextdoor to see if a neighbor will be neighborly and lend a hand.
Looks like someone on ND may have this pup!
I told her to contact Mudbay.
No, sorry. :( He/she was near Colts Brook Drive in Reston. I pinned the approximate location we saw him/her on my Next Door post: https://nextdoor.com/p/92TMgCFWKR-f?utm_source=share&extras=NjE5NTQ3NzA%3D&init_source=copy_link_share
