Sequoyah Hills wins another marathon!

Sequoyah Hills wins another marathon!

ell, not actually running, but boy can we put on a show for the real runners!  Last year, our neighborhood won the favorite neighborhood award supporting the Covenant Health Knoxville Marathon and spent the $300 award (plus another $300 from the Marathon itself) on putting together another great welcome for the runners making their way through our streets.  

Remember when…

Remember when…

We are reminded of early Knoxville history at every turn in our neighborhood.  Our earliest houses go back almost a century, and most of the rest are at least a half century old.

Wildflowers on the Indian Mound

Wildflowers on the Indian Mound

The early yellow blossoms of Winter Aconite peeping through the snow in February and then the white Blood Root, Virginia Bluebells, and Celandine Poppies – together they tell us that spring is on its way.  We have our very own seasonal timeline in our fledgling neighborhood wildflower and native fern garden on the Indian Mound. 

Neighborhood Conference

Neighborhood Conference

On Saturday March 7th, David Massey and his staff in the City of Knoxville Office of Neighborhoods hosted a well-organized and informative Neighborhood Conference at the downtown Knoxville Convention Center.  Over 700 people participated in the event.

Cherokee Boulevard walking path project

Cherokee Boulevard walking path project

Our Cherokee Boulevard median is a favorite route for walkers and runners in the neighborhood.  The walking path presents some challenges, however, because the fine gravel surface is often washed out by heavy rains, especially in several of the steeper sections. 

Thank you!

Thank you!

To everyone who pitched in to welcome the marathon runners.  

To everyone who finds a receptacle for their doggie bags instead of leaving them on the Boulevard

Neighborhood Nerds Tech Tip: What is “the cloud”?

Neighborhood Nerds Tech Tip: What is “the cloud”?

Cumulous? Nimbostratus? Computers? What’s all this “cloud” talk?

To steal a technological analogy, think of “the cloud” like you think of electricity.

Most of us don’t know where our power comes from or how it is generated, but we know how to access it: a power outlet.

Neighborhood security

With our warm weather season coming on, remember to make sure that you lock your car every time and don’t leave valuables or tempting items in sight.
