Dado’s Cafe opened in the Fall of 2015 and has recently rennovated their property, adding on a great bar area (where we will be holding our Tweetup).

The owner/chef has 30+ years of hospitality experience and they are excited to host our February Tweetup. Their food is great, prices are affordable and the atmosphere will be, as usual, very festive.

Check out their menu of Greek and American foods here: https://media.wix.com/ugd/378915_ec59114cb3ab4c8b927c0d489f8c5b00.pdf

If you have never attended a Tweetup before, now is the best time to do so. It is a fun, social time where neighbors gather to meet neighbors. There is no agenda. Stay for half an hour or stay for the entire time, but do come and check it out. You won’t regret it. It’s a great opportunity to meet our Alderman Joe Vaccaro and our Neighborhood Improvement Specialist Christy Boyd.

Please feel free to invite your friends, family and neighbors. Please remember that you are responsible for your own checks!

Hope to see you at Dado’s Cafe on the 28th!

Residents,

Below is an email I sent out a while back outlining a NOM court case involving Hassen Mohammad that was being followed by the Lindenwood, Southampton and Northampton neighborhoods. As you can see from the read below as a result of his crimes he was offered drug court by a drug court judge…not Judge Mullen who was overseeing the case. During that hearing Judge Mullen warned Mohammad if he violated his probation the case would end up back in his court and their would be consequences.

 

I am happy to say that Judge Michael Mullen is a man of his word. On February 17 in Division 1 (Civil Courts Building) Judge Mullen gave the defendant a sentence of 15 years for his crimes.

 

I want to personally thank Judge Mullen for stepping down off the bench at the conclusion and personally explaining his decision and for thanking the residents who came down to support our effort. He is a strong proponent of residents being involved in programs such as these, I personally ask that you pass this message on to others to get them involved also. It does make a difference!

 

Thank you again for those who took time to support this effort.

Lindenwood Residents,

To all interested parties who have followed the case of Hassen Mohammad (Burglary/Property Damage) I received confirmation that his sentencing will take place this Friday, February 17th at 9 a.m. I’ve been told the case will be in the court of Judge Michael Mullen, however, Judge Mullen has moved across the street to the Civil Courts Building I believe on the 10th floor. I will be present so if you can’t make it I will pass along the outcome. Also, below I’ve included recent actions involving subjects with ties to the Lindenwood area:

 

******************************************************************************

 

Northampton Crime Report for the Week of February 6th



2/7/17 @ 1116 (52xx block of Chippewa) Larceny: Victim reported a b/m subject snatched her medication out of her hand and entered a black 4-door sedan and drove off. A plate was observed and the vehicle was placed as wanted for the incident.

 


2/8/17 @ 2333 (50xx block Mardel) Stolen/Recovered Auto: Victim stated he left his vehicle running with the keys in the ignition, doors unlocked, and went inside the house. Upon coming back outside he noticed his car was gone. The vehicle was later recovered after it was involved in an accident and abandoned at Christy Blvd. & Wilcox Ave.




2/9/17 @ 0151 (Walgreens) Larceny: Officers spoke with the night manager/witness who stated that two unknown black males entered the store.

Suspect #1 took 8 bottles of Gain from the shelf, and suspect #2 took 7 bottles of Tide. The two suspects then walked out the front door, passing all points of payment, without stopping or attempting to pay. They both then turned north and walked out of sight, possibly north on Hampton Ave. No vehicle was seen by the witness or the security footage.


Suspect #1 is described as a black male, 6`4″ – 6`5″, Thin build, 35 – 40 years of age, wearing a blue jacket / white sleeves, dark pants, white stocking cap with a blue ball on top, and white tennis shoes.

Dear Friends,

With the upcoming election in March, I have been asked by many about my vote for Mayor.
Several of the candidates are my colleagues at the Board of Aldermen, and I have had the
privilege to work with them for many years.

Through my experience at the Board of Aldermen, I know that it takes a true leader in the Mayor’s
Office, and I know that the candidate with the best experience to fill this pos
ition is Lewis E. Reed.

Lewis Reed has been the President of the Board of Aldermen for the past ten years. Prior to that,
he was the alderman of the 6th ward. I have seen first-hand his leadership, dedication and hard
work ethic for the people of St. Louis.

I know that with Lewis Reed as our Mayor, he will be able to continue working for the people of
St
. Louis immediately. As President of the Board of Aldermen, he is familiar with the many boards,
agencies, committees and powers of the Mayors Office. I know it will be an easy transition for him
to effectively lead our City
.

This is my official endorsement of Board of Aldermen President Lewis E. Reed for Mayor. I would
encourage you all in joining me in voting for him on March 7.

We will be hosting a meet and greet at Pietros Restaurant; 3801 Watson Rd., for Lewis
Reed on Monday
,
Feb. 20 at 5:30 p.m. All are invited to attend. I hope you can make it!

Sincerely,

Joe

Joe Vaccaro

23rd Ward Aldermen 

If you would be willing to display a yard sign for Lewis, please email me your address to carwashdaddy@sbcglobal.net
