Dog Walker called me a while ago..  The city is getting the yard debris :o ,curbside out of the way for us.

We intend to replace those piles this weekend.  I need a head count to provide enough beverages.


Thank you, Lake and MJ !

Sure would be a big help if the city would back their truck into the yard and get the piles of branches there out of the way instead of waiting for us old folks to muscle them to the street.

Hey, free fire wood, too. Logs are already cut to manageable lengths and ready for someone to load and go.

Another thought:

Does anyone know a tree service that will donate the use of one large truck AND the super chipper they tow behind? That would make short work of all the piled up branches without having all that wasted air space in the regular city truck. Does the city have a chipper? It's all clean mulch then and ready to go to market - if anyone is still using that kind of mulch.

If that could happen, we would get all the tree work done in a day and be done with that aspect of the effort. 

Just the tree trimming and removal of the ones (like the ones growing out of the roof of the building)  will do wonders for the appearance and to improve the visibility into the property.

We would not take any contributing trees out at all. just trim them.  They all need that.

In addition to Ralph's post, requesting help in the way of a truck/chipper, we are requesting some other needed items:

-A lift with articulating boom... for getting to upper levels of the School to paint, pressurewash, clean ,repair the front Capital which sustained damage during the construction of the fly-over( Repairing Metal roof and marble trim in the right corner.  To replace the American Flag ( I have purchased a nice one ,embroidered)  and secure the roping to the top of the flag pole to at least make it difficult to steal.

-Paint, exterior , White , Cement color and Brown.  White obviously for the columns, portico and side entrances, planters ,etc, and the top at the roof line, Cement Color for the base all the way around the School and the caps on each of the stair entranceways at the back of the School and Auditorium entrances.

-Dumpsters/Waste management service willing to donate dumpsters for us to remove the destroyed contents of the building so as to cleanup and make as safe as possible and for presentation, the entire interior of the School.

- Companies willing to donate Hard hats, Gloves, etc for interior work.

- ANYONE willing to donate time and money for the cause ...any time and any amount of money is most appreciated.



Thanks again in advance.

May I offer an idea, please - one way you might save our historical buildings could be to get on the commission or board or whatever COJ office it is that marks things for destruction...if preservation-minded people like She-Clown and ILoveIonia and Timkin ran the office, great things would happen!

City has now removed all yard debris curbside.  Believe we have some additional volunteers starting this Saturday !

Does the City or the DOT do anything for mosquito control in the cesspool under I-95 right in front of the school?

Thanks Sandyshoes!

We have tried to get local (in this case Springfield) preservation minded folks on the HPC Commission.  We are being ignored.  There were two vacancies, now there is one.  This has been for a LONG time.  Recently a new commissioner was appointed.  I do not know this person's background.

Sheclown can post the specifics about the new appointee as she is a gem as researching and finding this stuff.
