  1. Happy New Year and congratulations on the Meadows, solar, birding, and all: you’re doing wonderfully. (Yes, I peek in on the site from time to time since leaving for California, and I hope some of you remember me, as I do you.) The Meadows especially was my obsession, and I remember telling Council on my farewell appearance there that the big thing I hoped would happen after I was gone was the rezoning and trail development of the Meadows, where I’d been chopping my way around for some time. Now I see you’ve been pushing this to completion, and I feel very grateful and satisfied. P.S. While in California my retirement project has been publishing web books of my photos and poems. The latest, called “Landscapes Small and Large,” has a fair number from Highland Park (beyond the ones you already have on the web site’s “tours”). If any of you are interested, search http://www.blurb.com/bookstore for my full name “Arnold Clayton Henderson” (as the web is crawling with other Arnold Hendersons).
