As Summer Approaches...
Thu May 23, 2013 8:52 am (PDT) . Posted by: "Addison, David" Everyone,

regarding suspects/criminals in our community.

Customarily, we have an increase in criminal activity as the
temperatures rise but there are things we can do to reduce the
opportunities for criminals. Many families will take vacations during

Durham Hosts “Get Your Grass Off Gas” Event on June 15

Durham residents looking to trade in their old gas-guzzling mowers and other yard equipment should mark their calendars now for two events providing steep discounts on cleaner and greener electric versions.

The Durham City-County Sustainability Office is partnering with Black & Decker® to host the 3rd Annual “Get Your Grass Off Gas” events. At these two events, residents can purchase discounted electric yard and garden equipment to help get polluting gasoline-powered equipment “off the grass” and into the recycling bin. Discounts will range from 20 to 45 percent off depending on the model. Equipment available includes lawnmowers, trimmers, edgers, blowers, vacuums, and loppers. People who do not have older equipment to trade in can still purchase electric models at the events, but with a smaller discount.

Residents can stop by the Durham County Memorial Stadium, 750 Stadium Dr., on Saturday, May 18 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., or Jordan High School, 6806 Garrett Rd., on Saturday, June…
