Alderman Hodges cutting the ribbon at the dedication of Montgomery Town Square in June of 2013.
It was announced several days ago that our Alderman in Ward 1, Dale Hodges, has decided not to seek re-election this October. Alderman Hodges has represented Montgomery in city government for 30 years and is very well known in the community. MCA president, Marilyn Wannamaker, made the following statement on behalf of the community association: “I would like to express our deepest thanks to Alderman Hodges for his ongoing support of Montgomery and his willingness to become involved in all kinds of issues facing our community. His historical understanding of current events will be especially missed. I wish Alderman Hodges and his wife Yvonne all the best as they create the next chapter in their lives.”

Deer in the Garden, Aug 2, 2013
The garden is so enticingly lush right now that urban wildlife can’t resist it. This guy (gal?) was enjoying beet tops this week, and not in any hurry to leave, even when shooed.
