Angry tenants voice complaints at CH Village
Residents upset by utility bills and safety issues.

They stood almost 140 strong, most crammed shoulder-to-shoulder in the Chestnut Hill Village clubhouse common room, some spilling out into the hallway.

Their anger had been mounting for months. They had strength in numbers now, and they were demanding to be heard.

They had come to protest inflated utility bills, rodent visits and lingering safety concerns. Resident after resident expressed outrage toward the apartment complex’s management group, Denver-based AIMCO, and its third-party utility billing contractor, Tampa-based Ista North America.

Great community response in a lean economy

It’s often been pointed out to me that the Local spends too much time on turmoil, not enough time on triumphs.

Allow me to recognize a veritable triumph in this year’s Chestnut Hill Community Fund Drive, which despite a certifiably terrible economy, managed to pull in $90,000 (that’s an exact, to-the-penny figure) for numerous community-based programs. That amount, I’m told, is the second-highest total on record for the annual drive.

Springside batters pelt Patriots

Springside School pitcher Natalie Klotz collected eight strike outs while giving up just one walk last Tuesday, and the junior helped her Lions out-hit visiting Germantown Academy 9-2 to come away with a 12-1 victory.

It was the first complete official game of the 2009 softball season for Springside, which had its opener against Episcopal Academy interrupted by rain back at the start of the month.
