This home has had the limbs trimmed back from the chimney every year since she bought this home, and there are no rain gutters. The homeowner has also been a "mountain resident" for over 15 years.
So I guess you are OK with big government coming in a claiming Eminent domain to cut down old growth trees to make a parking space.
This home was built originally in the 40's and is one of the older homes on the street. At the time it was built is was commercial property and having "close" access to the roadway was a desired feature. Now that the the neighborhood has evolved and is "residential" by nature new construction is being built within the boundaries of cities claimed Right of Way.
I found out about this project from another Nederland Resident and looked further into this issue. One concern the homeowner here mentioned is that she was never informed by the project planners, as many others were on the street. Why is this? They have her contact information on some of the plans.
One of the projects main goals is to reduce flooding along the street, This has been a problem in the past due to poor city upkeep and poor engineering of the storm runoff. The proposed plan calls for pave stones set over a gravel base (to allow water to seep down to a drain pipe). This plan does not take into consideration the facts that heavy rains do not allow for gradual trickle down action. Nor does the design take into consideration the fact that freezing weather negates any of this trickle down. The current design would create an "ice trough" down the middle of the road.
a magazine holds cartridges and allows the gun to shoot multiple times.
A Cartridge is the complete "package" comprised of a bullet (or projectile) , the case, the powder in the case which when ignited by the primer, provides the gas force to propel the bullet down the barrel.
This leads to other issues. Why was this magazine available for a kid take it.
And why does the kid think bringing it to school was a good idea.
Both of these issues lead to poor education to the child on the parents part. I grew up in a home full of guns (my dad was a cop). We were taught to respect and properly handle firearms as young children.
Most kids these days have a sense of curiosity about guns. When properly introduced to them the fear and curiosity can be alleviated.
