Glen Avenue was blocked off by police Wednesday night. Although the article below says police were called to the 100 block of Glen Avenue, it was specifically 167 Glen Avenue, right next door to FPNA member Steven Beck (163 Glen Avenue) who forwarded this news article on WOWT.com (see link below)
Diane and Brett Emsick (405 Park Avenue) had a couple of trees taken down and there is firewood FREE for the taking? They are ash trees. It is cut into 2′ to 4′ lengths.
Brett can be reached at 712-310-2802 to arrange pick-up time.

A raccoon in the advanced stages of distemper was seen early Tuesday morning on Park Ave. Animal Control came immediately to get the very sick animal. There is no cure and it will be euthanized. Animal Control said that the raccoon population has exploded in the east end of town and with it, distemper will also be present in a large number of them. Symptoms are: confusion, blindness, mucus discharge, or wandering aimlessly. They will also lose their fear of humans.
While raccoon distemper will not affect humans, it will be contagious to unvaccinated dogs or cats. Keep your pets away from an infected raccoon and do not handle them unless you wear gloves. Call Animal Control immediately.
FPNA will once more take to the streets for “trash day” when we participate in the Celebrate CB Clean Sweep on Tuesday, May 17th. Volunteers are asked to meet at the pump house at 5:30 at the top of Glen Ave. to get trash bags and our assignments, all within our own neighborhood. Please bring your own gloves. We will then spread out through every street and alley to find all those unsightly bits of debris. When we’ve finished our rounds, we can place our bags in the vacant lot next to 171 Glen (by one of our poles) for later pickup. Afterwards, we are all invited to Bayliss Park for free hot dogs cooked by our Mayor and members of our City Council, which is due to begin around 7:00 p.m.—a fitting reward for our labors.
Last call for participants of the 2016 Garage Sale. We currently have 7 locations (Park , Glen and Huntington) and we’d like to get that to 10. We’ll be advertising in various media outlets, Omaha World Herald, The Daily Nonpariel, Online, NextDoor, Facebook and our FPNA website.
If you are interested please contact me. Thanks.
