Park Fountain out of ICU but in Therapy


Fountain Update:  After a few days, the fountain has exhibited some mechanical problems due to someone tampering with the float.  Ray, the fountain fixer, is working on the problem with Jim Guerreri, who does all the park lawn maintenance. We hope to get things back working soon. Thanks to them both, and Ron and Janet and Tree and Lisa, and everyone else who has been monitoring the patient for signs of relapse.   And to the dog, or child, or adult (who should know better), please leave the blue float alone. It’s not a toy, and the eyes of BCCA are upon you.

The eNews received this Wickiup Mesa wildlife report:  “Saturday morning, June 9, at appox. 8am a large bobcat  was observed as it attacked, killed and carried off a house cat

at 4365 E Cliffside Trail, above and behind Crickets Restaurant.  Homeowners in the area may want to be cautious in allowing house pets  outside unattended.”  (Both bobcats and occasionally mountain lions are active in this area.  This is good advice about pet protection.)
