Neighbors helping neighbors
"Neighborliness" was never a real word until Bob Smith coined it and made it meaningful several years ago. But itís a real good way to describe what happens when neighbors get together.
And nothing has more neighborliness than the 19th Annual "Night Out Against Crime" on Tuesday, August 6. Here are a few of the happenings on that night. We hope your block or street is included, because itís a lot of fun and very informative. Call your Block Captain if you want you and your neighbors to participate. Then call the Storefront so we can include you on our list. 538-8148. We have much useful information to hand out. And, youíll want to be on the list for visits from Officer Paul Lennon, firefighters and paramedics (if possible) and Gaye Kuyper from the Community Service Center. Should be very rewarding.
Oaks North is represented by 2 blocks on Plaza Acosta, 3 blocks on Plaza Arica, all of Circulo Dardo, and Senda Acantilada; Eastview and District B are represented by Adena Lane, Campana Villas; Westwood Night Out parties include Matinal Circle and Lucera Court; Seven Oaks is well represented by a number of homes on Callado Road, Lomica, Pastoral and Calle Maria, plus a dessert and coffee on Mantilla Road. Swim & Tennis get-togethers will be at the Parma Court cul-de-sac, Mirasol and Parish Roads. Thereís a big potluck party in Camino Bernardo at the entrance at Terraza Floracion and at the recreation center on Avenida de Los Lobos. High Country West will be having a party on Earthstar Court. The cul-de-sac of Calle Pulido in Bernardo Heights will be having a dessert party. Let us know where your party is going to be held.
Be sure to call the Neighborhood Watch office at 538-8148 to arrange to pick up InfoSheets, Beat the Quake brochures, safety tips and scam alerts to hand out at your Night Out parties.

News from the Better Business Bureau: If you are receiving unwanted mail or telephone calls from companies, and you wish them to stop calling or mailing to you, there are a few organizations which may provide some relief. The Direct Marketing Association, P.O. Box 9014, Farmingdale, NY 11735, offers two free services to consumers. Their "Mail Preference Service" deletes your name from mailing lists of certain direct mail marketing firms and some non-profit organizations.
The Telephone Preference Service, P.O. Box 9008, Farmingdale NY 11735 deletes your name from some national telemarketing firms. When writing to the DMA, be specific: you want your name removed from both commercial and city mailing lists.
We have more information on other organizations that can help. Come to the Neighborhood Watch office at the library for copies. Call first 538-8148.
