    Possible prowler in the neighborhood

    Virginia and Bruce Maguire of 297 St. George report suspicious activity around their property in the middle of the night, 2 nights ago.

    Join OCSNA at the Corazon Cinema this Thursday evening at 6pm for CoSA presentation: “Flood Mitigation in Old City South”

    Yes, it’s that time of year again. Looking east to the corner of King Street and  Avenida Menendez at the height of    Hurricane Mathew. And if this week’s hail storm is any indication, it’s going to be an interesting storm season. Storms and flooding are a fact of life here in our ancient city. And when city streets are submerged by a typical summer cloud burst, never mind after two major hurricane hits in two years, we felt that the start of the storm season would be a good time to find out about the city’s plans for dealing with it. […]
