The Cherokee Triangle Association (CTA) has on-going partnership with Olmsted Parks and Metro Parks as part of their Adopt-A-Park Program.  Because of its location in the heart of our neighborhood, the CTA has adopted Willow Park. In support of this program, the CTA coordinates a monthly volunteer day from 9:00 am – noon on the 3rd Saturdays during the months of March-October.

This Saturday, April 21, marks the second volunteer day of our 2012 season.  Olmsted Parks provides gloves and some supplies, but we encourage participants to bring their favorite gardening gear – rakes, shovels, pruners, etc.  We meet at the gazebo at 9:00 am for a little coffee and to coordinate our efforts and then it’s off to work.

Please join us this Saturday and mark your calendar for the upcoming dates:

May 19
June 16
July 21
August 18
September 15

Although the computer program for crime reports will be down until the end of May, Officer Kevin Murphy is keeping the Cherokee Triangle up to date with information.

He recently sent us the following information:

On Tuesday April 3rd at approximately 0615 hrs, just after opening the Dairy Queen at 1250 Bardstown Rd, a store employee observed via the security monitors a male, armed with a handgun and wearing a black hoody, crouched behind a partition in the front of the store.  The employee fled through the side exit and ran to the Dunkin Donuts to call 911.

The security video shows two males, one wearing a black hoody and the other wearing a blue bandana mask, run in to the restaurant just after the employee unlocked the doors.   The male wearing the hoody was armed with a handgun and crouched behind a partition.  The other male, wearing a blue bandana mask and armed with a handgun, ran toward the counter and then chased after the employee through the side door.   He then quickly returned and both suspects ran to the office area.  They attempted to access the safe but were unsuccessful.  One of the suspects stole the employee’s cell phone.   The suspects fled through the n/s door.

Robbery Unit responded and is handling the case.
