Dec 2010 cover

The December issue of the Allandale Neighbor is out. Please contact me if you have not received it: allandalereporter [Email address: allandalereporter #AT# yahoo.com - replace #AT# with @ ]. It would be inaccurate to call this our holiday issue because there are no holiday-related articles in it. Instead, we have loaded it up with information pertinent to residents of Allandale starting with our lead article about a special committee on vacation rentals. We have a few in the neighborhood and some residents are concerned. We have notes from recent Allandale Neighborhood Association (ANA) Executive Committee meetings along with a letter from ANA's President, Cynthia Keohane.  Walter Brewer did some research on the Northwest Little League baseball fields at Gullett and gives us the story. It is quite an impressive complex. Walter's son Erik provides a wrap-up of the McCallum football team's season and resident Hanalei Lamar Meyers shares her and her husband's story about their year-long back-packing trip to South America. We started a list of veterans in the neighborhood. We will be adding to it. That is not all. We have Neighborhood Watch, Gullett Good News, Dog Talk, and more. All brought to you by a very talented team of volunteers from the neighborhood. Support our local merchants that advertise in the Allandale Neighbor and don't forget to send in your annual membership dues. Thanks to all who contributed to this issue and to the five other issues of the newsletter we published this year. It is one of the best in Austin.
