East Kendall Homeowners In Uproar Over Proposed School Expansion

Stop-Pinewood-AcresThe home owners in the East Kendall area of Miami are seeing red over the proposed expansion of the Pinewood Acres School on SW 97th Avenue.  If you’ve been in the area at all lately, you’re sure to have seen one of these signs on someone’s lawn.

The newly formed East Kendall Homeowners Federation is at the helm of the signs and the opposition.  The main concern is the increased traffic.  The area already suffers from main avenues that look like “parking lots” during rush hours.  Adding an extra 1700 students to the community will surely make the problem worse.

If you want to learn more, or lend your support, visit the federation’s website at  http://ekhf.org/

Florida Homeowners on Amendment 4 -What’s your Take?

Perhaps you are not deeply involved with your local politics and that’s OK, I can understand that. A busy schedule and hectic work day don’t leave much time for anything else. If you’re like me just getting a solid 8 is a small miracle. Sometimes we need to make time for something even if we can’t and this is one of those times.

If you are not familiar with Amendment 4 please allow me to sum it up for you. This amendment proposes to do 3 very important things for business owners as well as anyone buying their first home.

Palmetto Bay Home Prepares for Halloween

This has got to be the most creative use I’ve ever seen for nature’s leftovers.  This Palmetto Bay home has giant ghosts floating playfully under their oak tree.  Except these ghosts aren’t made of sheets, plastic bags or crumpled up anything.  They are cleverly cut from the Royal Palm fronds that have fallen off the tree.

The palm fronds lend themselves naturally to this whimsical project.  They have that flowing fabric look.  You just trim the top round, paint them white and add black eyes and mouths and you’re good to go!  I LOVE these!
