Three items of interest for our neighborhood, the Beach Replenishment Update, it appears the project is nearly complete.  The Sandalwood walkover has FEMA funding to replace and is scheduled to be replaced before our spring/summer season starts. 

 Second Item, there are seven (7) candidates who are running to be the Republican candidate for the second district. IF you live in Cape Story by the Sea, YOU are in the 2nd district and YOU would be eligible to VOTE in the Republican primary (any registered voter) on June 8th to choose the GOP Candidate who would run against Congressman Glenn Nye.

As mentioned at the civic association meeting, we have a couple on Oak Street who are going through a very difficult time and could use our help. Jorge and Stephanie moved into our neighborhood about a year ago. Shortly after their arrival, Stephanie was diagnosed with cancer. Their health insurance from her job had lapsed during the move, and treatment was delayed. She is currently down to 75 lbs, and has a broken hip. She has to deal with a trachea tube and feeding tube, but is still fighting. 
Jorge is a master tiling contractor, but has had little opportunity to work because he is Stephanie’s primary care giver. 
Our neighbor Janet Hollingsworth at 2215 Oak Street is holding a yard sale fund raiser for them the last weekend in March (Saturday is the 27th). We would like to spread the word, and ask for any items that might be donated to help these neighbors. 
Janet’s contact information is: 

Update: all pets reunited

Update: All the below animals were reunited with their owners.

Several animals found!

3/20:  Yellow Lab or Golden Retriever, found on Wake Forest St. near Poinciana Dr. Sat 3/20.  He is wearing a tan/brown collar with the name Hobbes on it.  Please call Kevin to claim on 848-3336 up until 5:00 p.m. today (3/20).

3/21: We just found a tailless adorable cat in our outdoor shower. It looks (and smells) like he/she has been there a while. It has fluffy black, grey fur on its back and some legs and a white underbody and white triangle around the mouth area.  It does not have a collar, and although it seems to want to hang out here, it is rather skiddish of us and our dog  (who thinks she has found a new playmate).  I can be reached at 617-6277.

3/22:  A huge, grey, domestic rabbit was found on Oak St. Bayside.  Please call Elyse – 412-0644 to claim.
