Probably eating the last dead fish!!!! that have lived in the pond for over 15 years. I can see the water going into the pond. This should be another sign of how stupid Jan, Dan and Scott have been this week. Dan talks about how much water cost and then he has added enough water to fill 600 of these ponds and its still going. I say they should all get fired Monday morning!!!!!

No, the heron wasn't eating the fish, just standing on the shore. He/she was just surveying the area and telling the ducks & geese it was okay to come on back.

Gina I get your point, and I am happy to see the pond getting the water it needs. That doesent change how pissed off I am at the city for killing the fish. I know a few of you guys called some people about pond in the last week and it helped. Something you dont understand is I started to make calls about the level of the water about 4 weeks ago. Sycamore Landscape promised me that it would be filled on the 15th and they told me they would put some water in now to save the fish. It never happened and now all the fish are dead.

Actually I do understand how you feel....I entered the game only in the last 2 weeks or so. My frustration level went over the top too. It better not happen again, we're wise to them now. Many of us appreciate your actions though.

You need to chill out. Passion for an issue doesn't have to equal being RUDE. I'll tell you, if you came at me the way you attacked people in your posts for being stupid/ lazy etc. I wouldn't piss on you if you were on fire. Really... BE NICE.

I sent 1 email last week and got an immediate response and ACTION. Why? Because I was kind and appreciative for the help.

Give it a try, breathe deeply, yell into your pillow or whatever it takes so that when you ask someone for help, you can do it in a manner that encourages them to do what you want/need. It's not rocket science. CHILL OUT.

Kathy, I get it...Springtown doesn't. They have/had a concern and used so much energy ranting with no results more as a result of this persons approach than anything else, period.

It's not that difficult of an issue to fix [the pond], nor is it a case where others were unwilling/unable to help out as Springtown would like all to believe. It is Springtowns attitude, tone, language, approach which was the barrier to resolution yet Springtown continues on the rampage... good luck to you Springtown! Geeze.

The golf course is being poorly run by 1 1/2 Workers that have ZERO EXPERIENCE IN GOLF COURSES, NOR DOES ANYONE THERE IN THE CLUB HOUSE THEY LAYED OFF THE ONLY 2 PEOPLE THAT KNEW WHAT THEY WERE DOING. THE ONLY REASON THERE WATER IS FLOWING NOW IS THAT. ONE OF THE LAYED OFF WORKERS OUT OF THE GOODNESS OF HIS HEART WENT OVER AND OPENED THE VALVE FOR THEM. AS THEY WERE TRYING TO TURN IT IN THE WRONG DIRECTION.... AND WE THANK YOU IF NOT FOR YOUR HELP. THESE 2 GUYS WOULD STILL BE TRYING TO FIGURE IT OUT. AT THIS RATE THE BELOVED GOLF COURSE IS DOOMED FOR SURE

I wasn't referring to a location by saying "Springtown", I was referring to the name someone uses to post so you need to chill too. Don't hate/have a chip on your shoulder just because you live in the hood.

Second, I find it quite a coincidence that with a small action on my part gets your issue some attention within a few days. So, ya, I am a know it all... I am smart enough to know how to treat people irregardless of my feelings about the issue. Run your mouth and spin your wheels all you want. Fool.

Oh, well, bless your little heart. I didn't realize it was YOU that resolved all our problems. How kind of you to take all the credit for your "small" action.
