Cut crime in our Neighborhood...Support a low-income Scout Troop!
posted by Ame S. on December 13th, 2009 10:22 PM
Hello friends and neighbors! Thanks for all of your past support on my own personal mission to help two neighborhood boys stay out of trouble by getting them into Scouts. (I'm a reserach junkie, so stats on Groups and Crime below for your reading pleasure just so the title of this email is not misleading). Now that they have joined Troop 489, and have my husband as a volunteer leader, we realize that it's not just these two boys that need help. This neighborhood troop serves many underprivileged boys in the neighborhood. I posted to the list last week looking for a hand-me-down uniform for my neighbor David, and in response neighbor Kim Mitchell helped take up my project. Her own son is a Boy Scout in a troop in central Austin, and she knows the value of Scouts and the importance of a uniform for group identity and confidence building. So she presented a proposal to the Boy Scout HQ in Austin, and they came through with a donation of 11 tshirt uniforms and books to outfit the entire troop with the basics. (Not one boy in the local troop could afford his own uniform or book, so with Kim's help, they now have it). But Kim felt that just the basic shirt was a only starting point, and felt that these boys deserved to have the full uniform like all of the other troops in town; scarves, hats, belts, scarf clips, and troop patches. Apparently this stuff isn't cheap, and she paid out of pocket $331.94 so far. Kim felt she needed to prepay and purchase these uniforms now before sending out a plea for monetary support as the boys have their Christmas party this Tuesday night. She does not expect reimbursement, but felt if anybody out there in the neighborhood would like to pitch in to help outfit these boys she would certainly accept your help. Even a dollar here or there helps these boys. $4 buys a scarf slip. $11 buys a scarf. $12 buys a belt. $15 buys a hat. $1 buys a hot dog for the next campfire. ( To make it easier for neighbors to contribute, we have set up a web page to make donations to Troop 489 via paypal - one click and you're helping a boy on a positive life path; a boy in this neighborhood! Any donations received above the money Kim has already paid will go straight to the Troop. This troop has not had an outing or camping trip in many years due to lack of funds and parental support. Maybe this year that will change with your help! Kim has wrapped up all of these uniforms for the boys to open at the Christmas party. This party is open to all friends and neighbors in the neighborhood, so if you would like to show your support to Troop 489, please join us at the party this Tuesday and see some smiles on boys faces when they open their new uniforms. Details about the party below. Thanks as always friends! AS. Pack 489 & Troop 489 - Pinewood Derby & Christmas Party Date & Time: Tuesday Dec 15 2009 6:30PM-8:30PM Location:Sacred Heart Parish Activity Center Who: All Cub & Boy Scouts, Parents, Families, Neighbors Goals: To have FUN, Race Pinewood Cars, Fellowship, Awards Ceremony, Celebrate the Christmas Season Refreshments: Pot Luck - Everyone is asked to bring finger foods or a dessert. Why is Boy Scouts Important to our neighborhood? Because… · Absent a meaningful attachment to a group, some kids are drawn to gangs. Children, especially adolescents, crave excitement and group activity. If they can't find it in programs organized by responsible adults, they become far more likely to find it in gangs. Too many children today have too little access to structured activity with positive role models. · Eighth graders unsupervised for 11 or more hours a week experience twice the risk of substance abuse as those who are under some form of adult supervision. Afterschool programs keep our children safe and provide them with much needed, supervised, structured activity. Studies around the nation have proven time and again that children in afterschool programs: · Are two times less likely to use drugs. · Are one-third less likely to become teen parents. · Have improved school attendance and do their homework more often and better. · Show better achievement in math, reading, and other subjects. · Learn to respect people who are different from themselves and develop better conflict resolution and social skills.

Cal Rodgers Block Party will be televised
posted by HornsFan on June 1st, 2009 9:57 AM
Thanks to all who came and made the day special. It was great to meet so many of our neighbors. We look forward to attending the upcoming block parties this next Sunday. If anyone is missing a folding chair, it is on my front porch (3913 Cal Rodgers). We also want to thank Kindal Mitchell with David Weekley for her generous donation of the Pizza's. Also, thanks to Marge with Dream Dinners for providing some samples from her business. They were delicious. Craig P.S., to the neighbors on Cal Rodgers, I'll put the contact list together in the next couple of days and get that out to everyone.
DW Opening Up Homes to General Public (out of Pioneers?)
posted by Kevin Ludlow on October 18th, 2007 1:42 AM
DW sent this email out to Realtors a few days ago. Thought some people might find it interesting: I would contend that 'selling super fast' might not be entirely accurate. So DW had 110 lots, started selling almost a solid month after the other builders, and has already exhausted the list? ...even the people on the list that applied but didn't make the phase I cut? Seems a bit strange to me. Anyone heard word from Meritage, Standard Pacific, or Streetman on this?

Are you sure that's for Phase 2? I interpreted it as being for Phase I. I could be wrong though.
Phase II email and Update
posted by mam469 on October 7th, 2007 4:39 PM
Look for some feedback on how to approach this meeting. I will not have a realtor. After reading some of the feedback from Phase I, I want to be prepared. What are some street addresses where SOCO models are being built, I would like to drive by. Hello! Thank you for your interest in David Weekley Homes at Austin's new Mueller development. You are receiving this email because you have expressed interest in being notified when homes will be available for purchase in Mueller. I am excited to announce that we will begin taking appointments to write Purchase Agreements on David Weekley Market-rate Yard Homes in Mueller beginning October 15th. Our current floorplans and base prices are available on our website,">" rel="nofollow"> ... y=21140000 <> . Please contact me to schedule an appointment to discuss this opportunity at your earliest convenience. I look forward to speaking with you. Thank you, Kindal W Mitchell
Free Sod and Sprinklers
posted by Kevin Ludlow on September 4th, 2007 4:12 PM
To anyone who didn't catch this email, hot off the press: I'm pretty happy that sprinklers will be included, and I can admit that is not necessarily something that I'd expect, but as for the sodding... How in the hell could DW have justified the sodding cost to begin with? ESPECIALLY given that our backyards will be about the size of a small living room at best. Regardless, no reason to really complain now I suppose as it's included.

I received the email from DW about the earnest money, it was dated 8/14, and it clearly states that you'll get the money credited back to you at closing. While $10k earnest money is a tough pill to swallow, I hardly see how this has become a "living hell" as was quoted. That's a bit melodramatic. Here's the full text from the email: "Dear Mueller Pioneer, Congratulations again on being part of the Mueller Pioneer Program. We are excited to report that sales are going very well out here at our Mueller sales office and that construction will begin on the first blocks of Mueller Yard and Row homes in September. Now that we are writing Purchase Agreements and making our way through the Pioneer Lists, we want to inform you of a few items you will need in order to be prepared when you come in for your Purchase Agreement appointment. Each person whose name will be on the Purchase Agreement needs to bring their current drivers license (ex: you and your spouse). If you are using a Realtor, they must accompany you to your first appointment in order to receive credit for the sale. The required earnest money amount is $10,000. This will be credited back to you at closing. We can accept a personal check or money order. We are not able to accept credit cards. All parties that will be on the Purchase Agreement need to be present at your first appointment. We encourage you to contact us with any questions you may have about our sales or construction processes. We want you to be comfortable with this decisionits a BIG one! You are also welcome to schedule an appointment with us to look more closely at a particular floorplan or for us to answer any questions you may have prior to writing a Purchase Agreement. Thank you again for your patience during this process and for choosing David Weekley Homes to be your Mueller builder. We look forward to working with you. Sincerely, Kindal Mitchell and Kara Wheat David Weekley Homes - Mueller 512.474.8855 office 512.474.8856 fax"

After selling the only two SoCo houses available in the first block, David Weekley has already increased the price of future SoCo homes by $10,000! I am livid. The sales office has been pushing very hard to sell the Willie, which undoubtedly is lagging due to the steep jump in price over the initial range for the SoCo. This outrageous move is probably an attempt to force anyone who was on the fence into a Willie. At this juncture, the cost of a SoCo without upgrades is $20,000 more than I anticipated when I signed up for the Pioneer Program! David Weekly is in the process of excluding anyone who falls in the gap between those eligible for affordable housing, and those who can comfortably afford a $300,000+ home. I thought the Mueller development was supposed to be a diverse and vibrant neighborhood, but so much for the middle class having a chance to get in!
