Summer has arrived.

Finally, summer has arrived. Better late than never. However, these temperatures are unbearable.

In these extreme temperatures, please do a wellness check on your elderly neighbors.

Please also remember that pets have a hard time in these hot temperatures. I hate seeing dogs in cars with the windows cracked barely an inch in this kind of weather. Leave them home.

I'm so glad that summer is here - I have been waiting!

Well... I usually enjoy the hot dog days of summer as much as the next guy... But this summer has been bringing about some unwanted changes for the neighborhood... Last night (Sunday night) I was walking my dog near MTG park... I heard... rather I felt the thump thump of bass coming from the park... I looked over and saw a s%*t box chevy with its trunk popped and a group of about 8-10 thugs (obviously not from MTG) having themselves a BBQ... as I strolled by (certainly with a look of discontent)I got hard looks from all of them as if I was a stranger in their neighborhood!!! I checked back an hour later (I live in the condo building on 111th and can see the park from my balcony) and low and behold, same thugs were still there a little louder, a little drunker, and a little bolder. Garbage strewn everywhere, one of them corralling the white girlfriend up against god only knows whose car so enough was enough... I called 911 and nothing... 45 minutes went by so I called again... I was told they were "back logged" and my disturbance call had already received a "code"... I assumed a "code" meant someone would be responding... The park closed, and the thugs were still there... I called 911 again and nothing... finally around 11 they left... leaving a weeks worth of trash in their wake... They left their car and walked n/b on Hamlin and into the neighborhood... I lost them there, but about 15 minutes later they were all sprinting back to their car and left just as fast as they arrived! This is not an isolated incident... I have seen these thugs frequent our park more and more often with less and less resistance... I wish I could say this was a folklore but it is way too true, my friends... time to run, not walk, away from MTG!!! Sorry, but I needed to get that off my chest...

in response to 10:29pm....
I encountered these same individuals while walking my 13 yr old dog. Well I have never seen my old dog walk as fast as he did when we walked past these boys. What I couldn't comprehend is that one of these young boys started "barking" at my poor dog Whibbles in a vicious manner, as if he thought he was a pitbull or something. I walked as fast as my 75 yr old legs could take me and went back home. If my dear husband was still alive he would tell me to stay away from that park.

You won't see any police until one of these thugs winds up shooting someone,and at that point it will too late the white flight will be on.ITS TIME TO TAKE THE PARK BACK.

This has been a very sad day for me. This morning my precious dog Whibbles has past away. I know he is in a good place right now and has to suffer no more. I have enjoyed a wonderful 13 years with him. Whibbles past in his sleep sometime last night. It hurts to know that we could not even finish our last walk together last night at our favorite park. I still am haunted by that boy "barking" at my Whibbles. It will be very lonely now in my house. I am sorry, it just helps to talk after a death. God Bless to all.

So sad to hear Mrs.Rickoli. I know when our 1st family dog passed it was very hard. You will be in our thoughts and prayers. If you ever want to take Hercules for a walk feel free. Your flowers look wonderful this year!

As for Mt.Greenwood park, my kids will not be going there anymore. It's a shame that wonderful payground which so many people contributed will go to waste. I was curious where all that THUMP THUMP bass noise was coming from Sunday evening, now I know.

The Way you all talk is the way we lose our neighborhoods. First of all if you see outsiders at the park you stay. You always look at them. Make them uncomfortable. If they challenge you challenge them back. Do not let them smell fear or it is over. If you see them walking around the neighborhood call it in. Give the Dispatcher a reason. Dont lie. They are usually tyring car doors or going into a yard, trespassing. If you have a cell phone record them. Give the Police a reason to lock them up. Sign complaints if you have to. Use audio and video on them. They can cry all they want but if it is on video they have no leg to stand on.

Just went to the park to walk a few laps and check out the meteor shower and instead I got to see 5-6black kids hassling a few white kids. When I went to confront them the black kids told me to go "f*ck off". I told them I am calling the police and they all started laughing (as if they allready knew that no police would show in any timely manner) Then I told them that they should go home and hang around their own parks. One of these thugs replied "hell no we love candy-land" I called but the "black" dispatcher refused to dispatch a car because she thought no laws are being broken. I called again after I saw one of the thugs urinating down the slide...but no police showed.

We are putting our house for sale next week. Enough is enough. Mt Blackwood came sooner than me and my wife thought. Heading to Florida to retire!! So I guess there is some white light in the near future tunnel! I am too old to be confronting 5-7 black kids who obviously don't have any respect for themselves. And believe me that # will soon double, then triple. Don't want to get beaten, shot, or killed. Or be called a racist and have a civil rights lawsuit. I am out of here folks. See ya.

COMING SOON FOLKS. Basketball Courts at Mt. Greenwood park! If you think there are problems now then watch out!

Well before I would go blaming the new playlot for the influx of blacks - I would look closely at the Colts football team. I think the desire to compete is leading to a heavy draft of talent not from the neigborhood.

Have you notice the make up of these teams - the older teams? certainly not representative of our neighborhood.

They bring everyone they know to practice and come early and stay late.

Just curious do they have to pre-pay for all the raffle tickets that everyone else has to in order to play or do they get a pass? I have heard that they do and other times they don't.

As a teen, I NEVER wanted to hang around with my parents, so why do we (adults) start hanging around at the park in the evening on a regular basis. I mean, if there were hundreds of us, the last place in the world these thugs would want to be is there. Any thoughts?

Wouldn't work. While we were at the park thinking we solved the problem they would be breaking into our cars, garage, or home!!

In north Beverly recently there was a rise in breakins - a neighborhood watch formed and there was a large outcry and how the blacks were coming through the woods to target the rich white folk - The claimed there was no police available and that the world was coming to an end. Some of the neighborhood watch group were doing there own racial profiling and stopping black residents in north beverly to question them.

Based on some prints left behind at the scene of a breakin they caught the guy - guess what he was white.

So, all the bad guys out there are not black.

look lib-tard...numbers dont lie... blacks commit more crimes... blacks commit a MAJORITY of the crime... just a fact. Sure a white guy EVERY NOW AND AGAIN falls on hard times and turns to petty crimes to make ends meat... but the brother, that is a life of crime! So lets not be naive here and act like blacks and whites cause the same amount of problems, or that an influx of blacks in a white neighborhood isnt going to lead to problems... it has, does, and will... for every bleeding heart story like yours I can GUARANTEE you there are 100 more of blacks coming into an area and crime sky rockets! It isnt white guys pissing down the slide at MTG park now is it? Lets try and be realistic on this blog people... Live in the real world, not obama hussein fantasy land!

Mrs. Rickoli- I don't know you, but I would like to say my heart goes out to you. I'm sorry to read about your dog, and your experience in the park on the same day. My sincerest condolences.

Hey, the commander of 22 actually let a squad car come into Mt. Greenwood tonight. About 9:30, one went flying down Central Park- southbound with lights flashing. Didn't catch the beat. Was someone murdered? IS that why we had police response?
