Google fiber is being installed in the Whitland Neighborhood. Crews were up installing the cable between Carden and Leonard a week ago. Google will leave door hangers before coming to do construction in this neighborhood. Those door hangers also include Google contact information should you have any questions or concerns during the construction process. This new fiber network will offer up to 100 or 1000 MB/S Internet, TV service with DVR, and Local and International Phone service. I learned at a presentation yesterday that once the fiber is brought to your home your existing coax and Ethernet wiring can be used within your home to connect your TV's and computers. Our good neighbor and Halloween costume prize winner, Martha Ivester, who is also Google fiber's Operations Leader was interviewed by the Tennessean and stressed that customer service "Is something we want to always deliver on. When we tell you someone is going to be there at 8:35 they are there at 8:35 ". What a refreshing statement to hear from a utility provider. More here or call 877-454-6959
The crown jewel of our extraordinary neighborhood was here long before the first house was erected. It's Kingfisher Creek, a rare taste of wild beauty in an urban world.
On May 21st from 8:30 12:00, come pitch in to help maintain our natural gem with the Annual Creek Clean-Up. Neighbors will join side by side to clear away brush, overgrown vegetation and garbage that can inhibit the creek's ability to renew itself. And as a reward there will music, a potluck lunch and barbecue.
It may be more than a month away but mark your calendars!
Also if you'd like to be part of a committee now forming to chart the course for creek maintenance and renewal, please contact Bob Glenn: email@example.com

If you live in the city block defined by Carden, Whitland, and Leonard your power was out for 23 hours. This was no simple outage usually fixed in a few minutes. A high voltage line snapped and was lying on the road on Carden. Nashville Electric must have had a lot of failures due to the high winds and was unable to get to Whitland until Thursday afternoon, April 7th. It took 3 hours to fix the problem and restring new lines. Power was restored around 4 pm. At least one neighbor was seen buying dry ice to save the food in her freezer. It was tough to watch all the other homes across the street with lights blazing while we had to resort to flashlights, candles and oil lamps.
