They called around to make sure they had the right color ribbon tied out in front of our house when we got home from the hospital, and even set foot inside a Catholic church to attend his baptism. When Maria was urgently ready to go to the hospital for our daughter Dino s birth, I raced across the street to hand baby Quentin off to the Nelsons I knew they would take good care of him. Our kids grew up in this neighborhood and no place will ever mean home for Maria and myself like Duke Park does. Home is where we have watched with pleasure as other families have moved in and grown. Birthday parties at the park, watching other people s kids when they went to the hospital for new births (and even taking neighbors to the hospital ourselves), endless games of Scrabble and Cataan, shouting Let s go Red Sox! with Carter and Macey, plays for our kids and others at the Durham Arts Council and Durham School of the Arts, these are all moments to treasure. Home is where we gathered during the ice storm of After lying in the cold dark listening to trees cracking and falling, what a pleasure to gather at Richard and Sally s at Hanukkah where there was some heat and light and share our stock of food and drink, the warmth of community, and laugh at the cold world outside. The menorahs on the mantel lit the faces and hearts of all of us crowded in front of the fireplace. And who can forget the blizzard of 2000, when the neighborhood kids and parents sledded and ate and partied non-stop for more than a week? Home is where neighbors recently called 911 when they saw a break in taking place. By the time the thief got down into the woods behind the victims home, the police were on the scene and the streets around the scene of the crime were full of neighbors ready to help. When scofflaws kept parking illegally in the park, the police got tired of us calling and the City finally took meaningful action to enforce the ban. Home is where it s hard to walk around the block for exercise without running into a bunch of people you know and catching up with them, playing catch with their kids, and maybe getting invited over to dinner. I know I have only scratched the surface of the many people and events that have made this neighborhood home for me and you all. According to the dictionary, the word neighbor comes from the old Germanic word nah meaning near or close by. Your neighbors are those who live close by you and, in a good world (as I think Duke Park is), are near to your heart as well. Love your neighbor as yourself, teaches the story of the Good Samaritan. That means you should love them a lot, and celebrate your common humanity over any difference: after all, the Samaritan, who wound up being the best neighbor, came from a hated tribe of foreigners. He didn t just happen to be in the same geographic area, (continued on page 3) INSIDE THIS ISSUE Yard Sale Junkies Unite!... 2 DPNA Membership Doubles... 2 Neighbors Welcome... 2 Carta de la Presidente... 3 Durham Central Market... 3 Duke Park Babes Corner... 4 Share Your Christmas... 5 Parks & Work... 6 Duke Park Cleanup!... 6 Let the Good Times Roll... 6 Block Captains... 7 Duke Park Happenings... 9
2 Page 2 Around the Park March,, 2009 Yard Sale Junkies Unite! Chris Crochetiere OK, I admit it. I m a Yard Sale Junkie. I am not so bad that I awake Saturdays, Herald-Sun in hand, to get first dibs at all the sales. I am hard-wired though to check out the yard sales that I see in my travels. Sadly, our little bungalow is not so fond of our predilection for treasures and that s where the Duke Park Neighborhood Yard Sale comes in me and fellow YSJs get to purge and refine our collections. And now you can too! For only $12, you benefit by sharing the advertising and production costs. An ad is placed in the Herald-Sun and copies of the Yard Sale map are distributed at each site. Traffic is consequently increased among the participating households. And DPNA makes out too receiving all net proceeds from the sale. This year s Yard Sale will be held on Saturday, May 9 th, and we encourage EVERYONE to register no later than Saturday, April 25 th. For those not in a seller s (or buyer s) frame of mind this year, we need your help with signage, mapmaking, and map distribution to sites on the day before (see page 5 for details). YSJ s unite and make this year s DPNA Yard Sale a memorable one! DPNA Membership Doubles Cheryl Summers Our numbers have grown to 128 Active Members -- more than double that of last year this time!

Yes, we will be hosting the Duke Park Neighbors Welcome. Last year neighbors came together to meet new folks and long-standing Duke Parkers. It was so much fun! Delectable dishes magically graced our table. Great conversation flowed. We learned more about the history of our neighborhood and the people who shape its extraordinary diversity. Such gatherings invoke good feelings about our community. In fact, the benefits we derive from increased safety by knowing our neighbors is immeasurable. What s more, networks are created, resources discovered and friendships initiated. This is the kind of community fellowship that no amount of money can buy.

3 March,, 2009 Around the Park Page 3 Carta de la Presidente CUANDO NACIÓ NUESTRO HIJO, Quentin, en el año 1987, menos de un año después de haber mudado a la calle Acadia, fuimos la primera familia de tener un bebe en nuestra cuadra desde Las viudas de los hombres de negocios quien habían construído aquellas casas estaban encantadas de tener un bebe otra vez en su alrededor. Se aseguraron de que tenían el color apropiado para las cintas que colocaron en nuestra puerta, dando la bienvenida al bebe, y incluso asistieron a un servicio en la iglesia Católica para estar presentes en su bautismo. Cuando mi esposa María estaba urgentemente lista para ir al hospital para dar a luz a nuestro segundo bebe, Dino, me fui corriendo al otro lado de la calle con el niño Quentin a casa de los Nelsons, sabiendo que le iban a cuidar bien. Nuestros hijos se criaron en este vecindario, y ningún otro lado del mundo puede significar nuestra casa como lo hace el vecindario de Duke Park. Nuestra casa es donde hemos mirado con placer mientras que otras familias poco a poco llegaron para criar a sus hijos. Fiestas de cumpleaños en el parque, cuidando de los niños de otras familias mientras que ellos se fueron al hospital para nuevos bebes, un número sin fin de juegos de Scrabble y Cataan, gritando Vamonos Red Sox con los niños Carter y Macey, obras de niños en el Durham Arts Council y la escuela de Durham School of the Arts todos estos son momentos y experiencias que guardamos como un tesoro. (la continuacion se encuentra en la pagina 6) Durham Central Market Update Pam Campa NEWS, NEWS! The board of directors held a retreat in January to solidify plans to open Durham Central Market (DCM) around the end of 2009 or in early The financial feasibility report has been completed. A market study will begin shortly. The search for a project manager to steer the opening of DCM has begun. New board members have been added. A location for the store has been narrowed to a short list. Whew! It has been a busy year already for this initiative. We could not mark these milestones, however, without the hard work of volunteers, whom we thank hardily. Pssst! There are still lots of opportunities to become involved in bringing this community-owned grocery store to a fabulous spot nearby! Can t volunteer? Then consider purchasing an Owner Share. Spread the news amongst your friends too! Visit us at durhamcentralmarket.org, or send inquiries to to learn more. Letter from the President continued from page 1 DANIEL F.

As we get close to signing a lease on the old bath house and the time approaches to actually start putting in our volunteer work into making it a community center, as the tide of economic woes rises around us and worries about jobs and money pile up, it is time for us all to be better neighbors. Now more than ever it is important to be a neighbor in more than just the geographic sense. Now more than ever your time and effort are needed to help with neighborhood activities, to serve as block captains and keep an eye out around your house, to help out with the newsletter, to pitch in on the bath house, to help each other and keep this neighborhood a home that we all can continue to treasure. Thanks for Your Generosity! The DPNA Board extends its genuine thanks to recent contributors: Peggy Brown, Gerald Bundy & Kimberly Griffin, Joseph Gary III, Barb Smalley, Cheryl Summers & Pearline Washington, and Elinor Woods.
4 Page 4 Around the Park March,, 2009 Carta de la Presidente continued from page 3 Nuestra casa es donde nos reunimos durante la tormenta de hielo del año Después de estar acostados en el oscuro frío, escuchando los ruidos de los árboles tumbándose en la calle, que placer fue el llegar a casa de Richard y Sally el día de Hanukkah, donde había algo de calefacción y luz y todos compartimos nuestros provisiones de comida y bebidas, y pudimos reirnos juntos a la extraña vida fría que se encontraba afuera. Los candelabras iluminaron las caras y los corazones de todos los seres agrupados frente a la fogata. Y quien podría olvidarse de la tormenta de nieve de 2000, cuando los niños del vecindario y sus padres volaban en trineo por las calles, comían, y hicieron fiesta por toda una semana? Nuestra casa en donde recientemente algunos vecinos llamaron a #911 cuando vieron a un ladrón entrando en una casa ajena. Tan pronto que el ladrón pudo escaparse al bosquecito detrás de la casa de los victimas, ya habían llegado la policía, y los demás vecinos llenaron la calle ofreciendo cualquier ayuda que pudieran brindar. Cuando gente a quien no le importaban los leyes continuaban de Duke Park Babes Corner! estacionarse ilegalmente en el parque, la ciudad se cansó de todas las llamadas que recibieron de la gente de Duke Park, y por fin se tomó acciones reales para ejecutar tal ley. Nuestra casa es donde es difícil de salir a caminar o hacer ejercicios sin encontrarse con algunos conocidos, para a conversar, jugar con sus hijos un rato, y quizás recibir una invitación para cenar con ellos. Yo sé que solamente he podido decir algunas de las cosas, eventos, y personas que hacen este vecindario nuestra casa para mi familia y las de ustedes, Según el diccionario, la palabra vecino tiene sus raíces en una anciana palabra Alemán nah, lo cual significa cerca. Sus vecinos son los que viven cerca de ti, y en un mundo bueno (y creo que Duke Park si es así), esas personas son (la continuacion se encuentra en la pagina 9) DANYA ALAINE O'SHEA, was born on April 8, 2008 to Laurie Siegel and Daryn O Shea and named in memory of her paternal grandfather, Daniel, and maternal great-grandfather Al. This dimpled Miss loves sweet potatoes, bananas and avocadoes and can eat whole ones of each in one sitting! Exhibiting a tender streak of independence, Danya prefers feeding herself if at all possible, and especially enjoys mashing her favorite foods between her fingers. Did we mention animal-friendly? She loves the family s three cats (Momie and Daddy are pretty sure cat was her first word). Danya is getting to know them well, mostly by giving a gentle grab at their tails. Already making micro-steps by pushing around heavy dining room chairs, the 11-month old also giggles infectiously when she gets to "fly" between Mommy and Daddy. And according to Momie, several times a day, strangers stop to tell us how beautiful she is...and we thought we were biased! Well, we can t agree more. So here s to Danya, our first Duke Park Babe!

Colorful costumes and lots of beads completed the wonderful party atmosphere -- laissez les bon temps rouler!
7 March,, 2009 Around the Park Page 7 Duke Park Block Captains Cheryl Summers At the start of this year our City of Durham Police Department Partners Against Crime / District 2 liaison, Master Officer Steve Hall, revealed that the Duke Park Block Captains list was void of current volunteers. Block Captains serve as a point of reference for Durham Police to assist in the prevention of crime in Duke Park specifically and District 2 in general. As a result of Steve s recent outreach, and a call for volunteers from DPNA President, we recently updated our Duke Park Block Captains list. A maximum of four Block Captains need participate in at least 6 of 12 yearly PAC2 meetings; no single person is required to attend ALL meetings. These occur at 6 PM on the second Monday of each month at the DPS Staff Developmental Center ( ), located at 2107 Hillandale Road (and Carver). Duke Park residents should: 1. Watch out for suspicious vehicles, not just vans and trucks. Passenger cars, expensive and inexpensive are also used by thieves. If you see a prowling car in your neighborhood, write down the license plate number. Record a general description of the vehicle occupants; the location, time and date. Be aware of activity in your neighborhood. Be familiar with neighbors vehicles so you know which cars belong in the neighborhood.

Carta de la Presidente continued from page 4 Source: queridos además de estar cercas. El cuento del Buen Samaritano nos enseña que es importante de querer a su vecino como te quieres a ti mismo. Eso significa que debes de querer MUCHO a tus vecinos, y celebrar su humanidad común sin importar las diferencias que les distinguen. Después de todo, el original Samaritano que llegó a ser el mejor vecino de todos era originalmente de un tribu de desconocidos odiados. No es que él simplemente se encontraba en el mismo lugar geográfico, él hizo un esfuerzo tremendo para ayudar a otra persona necesitada. Mientras nos acercamos a la realidad de por fin poder firmar el contrato para el viejo casa de la alberga en el parque, y así acercamos a la necesidad de contribuir nuestras horas voluntarias para convertirlo en un centro de comunidad que tanto hemos querido, y mientras que problemas económicos surgen cada vez más y la gente pierde su trabajo, es hora de que todos nos convertíamos en mejores vecinos. Ahora más que nunca es urgente que nos portemos como vecinos en el real sentido de la palabra, y no solamente compartir un región geográfico. Ahora más que nunca, su tiempo y su energía son necesarios para las actividades del vecindario, para ser capitanes del bloque, ayudar a vigilar las casas de sus vecinos, ayudar con este boletín o con el viejo casa de la alberga, ayudar el uno al otro, y así mantener a este vecindario como una casa que todos nosotros podemos continuar a apreciar y guardar como en tesoro.
