Jendayi Lynn Robinson of I Got Salsa “wed” David Micozzi of Frank’s Gourmet Chips at the Highlandtown Farmers Market last week. Stella’s Bridal Fashions on the Avenue and Horton’s House of Tuxedos provided the formal wear in the event, which was also sponsored by Highlandtown Main Street.

    Would the Guide paper be interested at all in hearing or writing about all the disruption and aggravation caused by the work being done on our streets. We understand work has to be done, but the way they are is not right. Our beautiful block is is looking like a war zone, they work times that are not what’s posted on signs they left. Parking is a huge problem, and not getting anywhere with feedback, when calling the number they gave on letters sent to us. Have called numerous times to speak to a supervisor, and either get no calls back, or he’s not there. I leave messages and get no calls back. Today they say they are going to pave down the middle of the street, where they dug, but should do the entire street. They wake us up at 7:30 one day, work at 9:00pm another day, loose tar on sidewalks where holes are, is getting into everyone’s cars and homes. So, can you do a story on this? Very frustrating. First was a sign would be done today, then New sign says the 11th. We just want to know when it will end.
    Thank you.

    Thank you so much Maria. I appeciate the kind words.

    We are very concerned about the papers that do not get picked up. Our delivery company is supposed to clean up as they deliver but this obviously is not happening on your block. They are not supposed to deliver to vacant houses or to houses that are not picking it up. Please let us know if you continue to see this happening, you can call 410.732.6600 ext. 1 or my extention is 4. We just need to know the block you live on.

    Our advertisers want home delivery as well as business drops, we do both. I hope you will continue to let us know how we are doing.

    Thanks, Ed Hoffman, publisher

    I love the Guide. Always have. Gotten so much smaller, but still look forward to getting mine every Wednesday. But am so sad that they are just being kept on sidewalks and in gutters. I really think I am one of maybe a few that actually take it in my house and read it. Maybe you should just keep them there, or put in stores, pizza shops, and more. What a waste of paper to see them just being swept up by a sweeper. Human or not. Or, if you like the idea, you could just give me the papers for my block, then I will let my neighbors know I have them if they want one. What’s left, I will gladly bring back to you. I try so hard to keep my street clean, but between the Guide and the Sunpaper Plus, our streets are looking very trashy. Any way I can help, let me know. Thank you.
