  1. Residents of Upper Riberas, beware! There have been 3 break-ins in the last two weeks in our area. The police don't seem to do much about it, not even more patrolling in the area, so we have to take it upon ourselves as good neighborhood watchers. The last incident was at the Mormon Church. Without a police blotter anymore, it is hard to know what is going on right next door sometimes.
  2. Tomorrow (6/10) between 9- 1. Upper Riberas (2 blks up from Orma Auto) Bedroom and living room furniture, bookcases, coffee table, couch, large and small plants, handmade table with a rare Metepec mirror, pots, baskets etc. Much much more. Lots of freebies. No questions please, just come.
  3. My iPad was deactivated and I need help to reactivate it. Anyone at Lakeside that can help me?
  4. Does anyone have a recommendation for a handyman that can build small things with wood and do a few other small repairs?
  5. Well, I thought I had experienced just about everything that is annoying about Walmart but today's experience takes the cake! I left my cart for no more than 5 minutes to use the restroom and when I came back, it was gone. I asked a clerk and she started giggling. The manager came and led me to six of the blue totes in the front of the store and told me my groceries were dispersed in all of them along with other people's groceries. Even my paid-for pharmacy drugs were stuffed in with all the other articles. They all just giggled. No "We're sorry" or any apology just giggling. After going through all six of the totes hoping I had all my groceries back together, I went around to check out where the clerk kept looking at me giggling. Then I get home and when I picked up the laundry detergent, it felt light. I opened it a sure enough, someone had helped themselves to half the detergent, put the cap back on and put it on the shelf.
