Facebook Memories reminds me of another week that didn’t exactly start off on the right foot.
Yes, those are two different shoes. As I recall, my students thought that was pretty hilarious.
On the other hand, I felt a bit of hope from an unlikely source this morning when reading a post on Next Door, of all places. A fellow reported a large hole in the ground near where he lives and asked how he could best report it. He was concerned that children might come to harm.
I am pleased to report that he got quite a bit of sound advice. This is not always the case on Next Door. Probably the best advice overall in Columbia/HoCo is that you have to know exactly where the hole is located. Once you know that, you know whether to contact your HOA, CA Open Space, or Howard County via See Click Fix. Someone suggested contacting one’s Village Association for help. That’s certainly a good place to start but I suspect they’re going to lead you through the process above.
Of course there were a few wags who offered their two cents. Notable among those responses:
- Get a shovel and fill it yourself.
- It’s no big deal, kids can use the hole as a play area if it’s not too deep.
- Contact the County Executive directly and he’s sure to help you personally.
