Residents understand the need for tree trimming, especially around those all-too-dangerous power lines. But they also want their neighborhood’s beauty maintained, which is why a recent job done on Pinemont struck some nearby residents. According to the city of Houston, a CenterPoint Energy crew recently performed some work along the 5700 block of Pinemont Drive, trimming down some trees around nearby power lines, as they posed a safety hazard. However, a motorist came upon the work later that week, and was struck by a thought. “The tree trimmers cut all the top of the tree and left just one or two big limbs hang over the street,” one reader wrote. “It would have been much better and would look much better if they would have gone ahead and finished the job.” A Centerpoint Energy … [Read more...] about Residents spot odd trimming pattern
Dear Tabby, We have a new puppy who is chewing on everything (including us!). Our vet told us never to give her rawhide chews. Why? I thought rawhides were a good choice for a chewing puppy? Can you set us straight? Teething in Timbergrove Dear Teething, Rawhide chews have been the go-to chewy treat for dogs of all ages for quite some time but recently, pet experts have started to speak out against them and it is very common for vets to warn pet owners about the dangers of this treat. There are several factors that cause rawhides to be potentially dangerous for your pooch: • Choking hazard: Once your dog swallows a tiny, broken piece of rawhide, that portion can get lodged in her throat, putting her in serious danger. • Digestive blockage: Allowing your pooch to … [Read more...] about ‘Raw Deal’ for rawhides?

From backyard garden in our local community to a small business, Amy Williams is keeping the gardening tradition alive in the family with Underhill Urban Farm Co, a non-GMO, organically grown farm and garden that uses heirloom seeds, that are all locally grown. Her father, an organic farmer, taught her the ins and outs of farming, while her mother taught her how to can different items, like pickles, jams, and jellies. Growing up with fruits and veggies in the backyard and on the table was something Williams was used to. So, it was natural that she’d have a garden of her own and use it to teach her children as well. “We kind of grew up like that. It was a natural thing for me to do it, and for the kids to be a part of it,” said Williams. Around a year and a half ago the thought of … [Read more...] about Local garden becomes family business venture
