Looking for the Positive

We don’t know about you all, but we’d love to see more positive news/profiles and we need your help!

Who do you know who has been a great neighbor recently? What area school/organization/business has made a recent contribution to the neighborhood?

Why do you love and live in this area?

While we’re working on People of Church Hill on our Instagram feed, we want to hear from you! Contribute your own stories and let’s highlight the “People” part in Church Hill People’s News.

Comment and give us a background and then we’ll follow up!

Mr Saxophone still exists, Mr Yanker. He is *not* a positive person and should not be included on this list. Playing the saxophone in the middle of the night for hours on end in a residential neighborhood is terrible, unneighborly behavior. And before anyone jumps on here and says – “oh, I like saxophone music” or “oh, it gives the neighborhood a cool vibe” – try living next to it for awhile and then come tell me how cool it is. He is also a TERRIBLE musician and can barely play. If you hear actual music coming from that corner,… Read more »

It is very telling that over 90% of the items you are posting here has 0 comments. I have offered several stories of real importance to the community but none have been run. There is always an excuse ( we didn’t see it, you have to have a photo to post a story, we were on vacation.)

These stories were about scams, waste of taxpayer money, graffiti and people profiles.

I use my real name and am not ashamed of what I post and can back up any claims I make, yet I am censored.

@jean Maybe, the other reason is that we turned off the comments that were coming directly from Facebook and Twitter. Things look like they’re not being seen because the “likes” were usually implemented as comments when they really were not. But you’re right, things may seem a little slower lately and this is directly the cause of us using our time to grow the website in other ways. I’d also like to remind you that we are running a skeleton crew. The website redesign is taking a LOT of our time and effort. I also will remind you though that… Read more »

Yes, I know what I wrote. I am not ashamed of what I wrote. I use my real name and take full responsibility for anything I say. I would write it again because it is true!

I appreciate Jeans contributions to neighborhood conversation, and to the neighborhood. I see the not-so-veiled threat to block her from participating in this platform. I also would not characterize her comments here as either brutal or unedited. I don’t think that’s true—which matters to me. About this turn towards a general social justice warrior platform and conversational style. My opinion— it often replaces difficult real world conversations with a drawn out word battle over who is mean/racist/to blame, while barely increasing knowledge or understanding of the world and its real issues. It seems more interested in scoring points than actually… Read more »

Dubois2, There are so many people that are much more eloquent than I am. Thank you for your post. No one is liked by everyone and I am no exception. However I do not NEED to be liked and as you may know, I march to a different drummer than most and am not afraid to confront underhanded, sneaky and dishonest behavior when I run across it. To that end, I have been targeted by people that won’t reveal themselves and have done some pretty mean, petty things. The breaking point for me was when someone started attacking my pet… Read more »

@Gustavo, I understand “growing pains” as you try to modify the platform & make this site yours to benefit the neighborhoods. Wishing you more comfortable days to tinker/tweak & achieve success on that front. I wholeheartedly echo everything Dubois2 wrote. I would miss Jean’s snappy & funny no holds barred insight on our collective communities. Conversation is paramount, regardless of the subject. Jean is honest & direct without an ounce of “political” bias”. The lady cares. Firebrands like Jean, Bill’s wahoo neighbors & folks like Garrett with love for family, friends, neighbors & all of those that orbit his world… Read more »
