So what are they doing to the Barton Street Park?

    The baseketball court, everything is fenced off. Trailers moved onto it. Looks like it will be closed for a long time. Also means the sidewalk is closed, and the busstop there won’t be accessable otherwise by dumping passengers off onto the street.

    1. Slide CLIPS onto DRAWER SIDES as shown in Fig. #1 and #2 below.
    2. Depress CLIP as shown in Fig. #3 below, and insert end of FILE BAR.
    3. Release CLIP, securing end of FILE BAR, as shown in Fig. #4.
    4. Slide CLIPS from side to side as necessary for proper spacing, to fit a standard ‘Letter’ or ‘Legal’ size Hanging File Folder. For best results, make sure FILE BARS are parallel to each other.

    There is this great website that has articles that are relevant to Arlington.

    In a small sauce pot combine chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk, butter, salt and vanilla. Turn to medium low heat and stir until completely melted and creamy. (I have a gas range. With the direct flame I had to reduce to my heat to low while melting.)

    Divide the dough into two portions, with one portion having slightly more than the other. Use the portion with slightly more as the bottom crust. Press into a prepared 9√--13 inch pan.

    Curious why the plans dont’ have a tennis court. Are they catering to certain groups they believe don’t play tennis? Nice to know the costs of the renovations nearly double to make it ADA compliant. Thanks.

    edited.¬† I said something, then I shrugged and thought what’s the point.

    A quick look at the Parks Department web site seems to show 23 parks in Arlington with tennis courts.¬† Someone must feel that number is sufficient.¬† Of course, I don’t know how accurate that information is because the same site indicates that Tuckahoe Park has restrooms and ornamental gardens. To my recollection, Tuckahoe has neither.

    There are no parks with tennis courts anywhere near where I live. WE already had one bastketball court. Now there will be two.

    Nothing wrong with 2 courts.  The current course is in use pretty much anytime I go by it.

    I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say that there’s more demand for basketball courts than tennis courts. I will admit though, that the demand for basketball courts likely goes unvoiced, as tennis players are far more likely to whine about stuff, as novasteve is doing now.

    that park needed a new bball court. one hoop was 9 feet, the other 10.

    Basketball courts seem to make more sense space-wise. On roughly the same size court you can have 8-10 people playing basketball versus 2-4 people playing tennis.
