    @bob kastigar

    You're right lets correct you

    Let's get a couple of laws straight:

    Bicyclists are permitted to ride two abreast down the road in one lane.. WRONG

    9-52-050 – Bicyclists must ride single file, exceptions; bicyclists may ride two abreast when riding two abreast does NOT impede the normal and reasonable movement of traffic.

    Bicyclists are entitled to the full use of a lane. And again WRONG

    9-52-040(c) Except as otherwise provided in subsection (e) of this section and bicyclist upon the roadway at less then the normal speed of traffic at the time and place shall ride as near as the practicable and safe to the right hand side of the roadway

Tree Cutting 60644

Does anyone know why so many random trees are being cut down in Austin, especially on tree lined streets closest to Austin Blvd. It seems so random. Tree trimming crews descend upon the community each spring and trim the same trees repeatedly throughout the summer. They butchered the Maple tree in front of my neighbors house while she was at work a few times in one summer. It was literally only half a tree before they stopped. In addition to...

Does anyone know why so many random trees are being cut down in Austin, especially on tree lined streets closest to Austin Blvd. It seems so random. Tree trimming crews descend upon the community each spring and trim the same trees repeatedly throughout the summer. They butchered the Maple tree in front of my neighbors house while she was at work a few times in one summer. It was literally only half a tree before they stopped. In addition to our crime watch we now have a "tree watch" on our block. Retired neighbors or anyone at home keep a look out for rogue city crews. It sounds funny (or like a weird metaphor) but now the crews are taking down young and mature trees and leaving stumps behind. Called the alderman's office...no response yet. Is this happening in any other areas?

Solution to this &#^#&ing TV Bill!

Our cable TV is too expensive for what we use, and it just went up. We need good Internet for work and school, but we only watch a few channels these days. I was researching options. Mostly ATT, Dish TV, Directv and Comcast are in our area. I found a site that finds service with TV channels you watch: www.10channels.com. It found a TV/Internet combo that would saves us $55/month with a switch to Direct.

There's also a good option for ATT. I am going to call the number and make the change. Just wondering if any of you have Directv or ATT Internet? Any advice is helpful!

  • Whenever my rates go up - I'm with Comcast - I call the "discontinue service" line and tell them their rates are way too high for me. Then they review my package and ALWAYS give me a better deal - usually about $20 less than what I was paying before. This strategy should work for most any service provider. Good luck!

  • SpamAlert Hates being spammed

    Go away spammer. Mark unneighborly.

  • Gloria B South Austin

    I have ATT internet. Speed is not comparable to Comcast, but it costs less and I can live with that!
