NEIGHBORHOOD NEWS - UPDATED 9/15/14
*** PROTECT THE INTEGRITY OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD ***
New Executive Committee (Elected April 2014):
There has been a confirmed West Nile Virus (WNV) positive mosquito sample in your area. The positive mosquito sample was collected from Fire Station #16.
We would like to remind you that Tarrant County Public Health has reported no WNV human cases in the city of Fort Worth in 2014.
It is extremely important that residents continue to reduce the mosquito population by removing mosquito habitats from your property and to remind your neighbors.
We want to remind you that the most effective means of protection, even more protective than spraying, is to stay focused on the reduction of the mosquito population:
1. Please check your yard for standing water in empty flower pots, pet bowls, toys, etc.
2. Maintain your swimming pool.
3. When you’re outdoors, remember to wear repellent that contains DEET
4. Wear clothing with long sleeves and pants when applicable.
5. Avoid being outdoors during dawn and dusk when mosquitoes are most active.

Chesapeake Lawsuit Update
Mr Ray, the lawyer who had presented at our Membership meeting at the Elementary School, was now pursuing a Class Action Law suit in Oklahoma City and members will have to work directly with him if they wish to join this suit.
An associate who is working with the McDonald law firm happened, by coincidence, to have dinner at Buffalo West during the Happy Hour and meeting and advised that Class actions in this situation had not been successful thus far. The McDonald law firm is now recruiting plaintiffs in both Johnson and Tarrant Counties. He is holding information meetings now. The McDonald firm has a website set up for information at http://royaltyripoff.com/
With these new developments, the RHNA will no longer be pursuing a law suit as an association and members will be responsible for pursuing any action on their own. We will gladly pass along any and all information as we receive it.
For those interested in attending the information meetings from the McDonald Law Firm, please visit http://royaltyripoff.com/events
RHNA No Soliciting - No Handbill Signs Are Here
Delivery is in Progress!
The RHNA No Soliciting - No Handbill signs are here! The Executive Committee is in the process of doing round one of deliveries. If you have paid via paypal, in person at a meeting, or through mail, we have your order and will deliver your sign to you. In case you are not home, we will leave the sign on your porch.

RIDGLEA HILLS PARK
Ridglea Hills has many things of which we can be proud. Among these are one of the finest elementary schools in the city, two scenic lakes, Luther Lake and Bal Lake and Ridglea Hills Park with its panoramic views looking south and east.
Over the years we have found out that many residents, some long time, are not aware of it. During conversations with local media several years ago, many were astounded when they saw it and the view it afforded.
Your neighborhood association and the City of Fort Worth have worked together to install playground equipment and a covered pavilion for all to use. A tennis court is on the west end of the park.
It is very easy to find. You can get to it by driving south on Stonedale until it deadends. You can also go south on Angus to Cumberland, turn left in front of Ridglea Hills Elementary and turn right on Stonedale.
You can open the link on our website, entitled 'Boundaries' find our neighborhood map and easily locate the park.
It is a great place to go and get away from it. Grill hamburgers, visit with friends and family, watch your kids and grandkids run around and have a great time.
If you havent been there before, treat yourself and enjoy our park.
