This is so tragic and I. for one, am sick from all of the shootings throughout the US.  This has to stop.

Prayers for all officers,  their families  & friends.

Please join me in showing appreciation to others and especially those who are protecting all of us:  Fire, police, doctors, nurses and so many others.


Alpine to Hear Neighbor’s Concerns about Football League

UPDATE:  I understand the meeting went well however there was very low ordnance from residents around the school.    The folks from the little leagues were very willing to work on any concerns and they have shared contact information for any future concerns.  It was also determined that a group who was using the grounds DID NOT have permission from the school & that has yet to be resolved.  All in all I understand the meeting went well.


Many neighbors in/around Alpine have expressed concerns about the noise, litter, parking, practice schedule, etc. regarding the football/cheer league that used Alpine’s fields this past Fall.  It was a different league from previous years.

 Sharon Woods  trustees received numerous phone calls. These concerns were brought to the attention of Principal Peeples at Alpine.   She is very open to hearing the concerns and wants to keep a positive relationship with the neighborhood

Principal Peeples  is hosting a meeting at Alpine with a football league representative on Tuesday, Feb. 13 at 6:30 p.m. to get input before making a decision to allow/not allow them to use the field again next season.  Everyone is welcome- the more the merrier!
