Did anyone else in Avalon get a letter wanting to check out their property for unexploded bombs on their property? Friends of ours that  come down for golf outings got this letter but no one else we know did.

Unfortunatly I lost my dog Rex. He is a Black Lab/Golden mix that is pitch black except one single spot on his chest. His tail is missing a bit of hair because he injured it and the vet had to shave a little to clean it/bandage. He has been missing for two days now and i was hoping you could possibly help me out by sending a mass email the the community here. Please contact Matthew Calvert at (703) 431-5837 or Tessa Woolatt at (703) 981-3359

I wanted to say thank you to a couple who found my dog on Monday August 6. I received a phone call from one of my neighbors while I was at work telling me that she thinks she may have my dog. I was confused because my dog stays in the house and I knew she could not get out. After confirming that it was in fact my dog I was overwhelmed with excitement that she was found even though I was still wondering about how she was able to get out of the house. The story I was told is that a couple saw her walking down Stoney Falls and picked her up. They drove to my street and saw 2 of my neighbors outside and asked if they knew whose dog it was. Thank goodness both neighbors knew it was Harley and called me right away.  I have thanked them so much for what they did. I really would like to know who the couple was who so graciously picked up my dog and searched for me to give her back. You do not know how much I appreciate what you did. Harley is our whole world and we would be devastated if something would have happened to her. If anyone knows who this couple is please pass along my gratitude. Maybe they will read this and contact me because I really owe them a big thanks.

I have noticed a duck in our subdivision that has a broken leg.  I do not want to have it trapped and euthanized by animal control.  Does anyone know of an organization that I can contact that will rehabilitate it rather than kill it?

I wanted to update you on my missing cat, Foxy. Thank you for sending the email, since then, I have had quite a few calls thinking they had seen her. I even went to a neighbors home who thought they had her in their home, unfortunately it wasn't her. I decided to also post flyers yesterday. Last night I received a phone call from a lady on Stoney Falls and she gave me the news I had dreaded. About a week and a half ago her husband came home to find my sweet cat had been killed on their front porch. She heard a commotion at about 8 pm and heard kids outside. Her dogs were barking but she didn't go outside. When her husband arrived home at 9 pm he found Foxy. They called the police because they were afraid it was a threat against their animals. Animal control came out to take pictures for the report. My heart breaks for the torture my cat endured. She didn't see the kids so I know we will probably never know who committed this unspeakable crime. I wanted to inform you so you could send out a warning to our neighbors to beware of letting their animals outside without them. How sad that this kind of evil is living among us. Thank you!

I received a flyer last night while walking my dog from a man who told me that his 10 month old puppy got out of his home in Plantation Lakes, ran into Carolina Forest Blvd. and was scooped up by someone in a minivan who then drove into Avalon.  I hope who ever rescued this puppy has already returned it to its rightful owner.  There are flyers posted all over Avalon with the phone number....(843) 446-5378.  I told this man that I believed that my neighbors in Avalon would return his puppy as soon as they knew where he belongs and that no one in our neighborhood would have ill intentions, like keeping it or worse.  Please prove me right!  Two little boys are depending on you.

Please help find this puppy!

Monday mid-morning June 13th a minivan stopped on Carolina Forest Blvd in front of Plantation Lakes and picked up a small bulldog that ran out right after getting a bath from a Plantation Lakes home. He had no collar on at the time. The van pulled into Avalon but we do not know the color or make/model. He responds to "Franklin", is very friendly, about 10" high in the shoulders, big ears, mostly white coat with brown spots and half brown face. He is neutered and is about 10 months old. If you know the location of this dog, please contact Michal at 843-446-5378 or Wendy at 843-455-6330. Thank you!

Monday Morning, 01/24/11 our indoor cat ran out, we live at the end of Sugar Creek Court.  He ran into the woods and have not seen him since.  He is a very friendly cat and has never been an outdoor cat.  If anyone sees him please call us at 843-877-2024.  He is a Brown & tan tabby, green eyes and will come to you by the name Hunter or "Super Kitty"!  He has been missing for 4 days now and hopefully someone brought him in, but he is missed here and would appreciate it if any one has seen him to let us know.

Thanks so much,

On December 1st, 2010 I contacted the Horry County Engineering Department and requested that area on Stoney Falls be repaired. They sent out a truck a few days later to do some patching but that hasn't worked. Last Thursday (January 20th, 2011) I contacted them again and told them that their repair in December didn't work and the road is worse than ever. I told them that I didn't want another patch job, I wanted it repaired correctly so it would last. When I spoke to the engineer last Thursday he said that he was coming out Monday or Tuesday to inspect it. He said they will probably end up cutting out the entire section that is bad and repaving it. To answer your question as to whether they will repave all of Stoney Falls to Copper Creek....I highly doubt it. Horry County is in a financial bind and they are looking for ways to cut back on expenditures without laying off employees. They aren't going to fix parts of the road that are still okay.

Thanks for your email!

To Whom It May Concern,

We are writing in regards to the poor roads along Stony Falls Blvd.  It looks like there were patch-ups done between Silvercrest and Copper Creek and now it is broken up again and it will get worse.  When will the whole Stony Falls Blvd. be re-paved from the entrance down to Copper Creek?

My name is Adam. I recently noticed a bike on my front lawn Friday afternoon. I didn't think much of it and thought maybe one of the neighbors kids left it there. It is now Monday and no one has claimed the bike. Im not really sure what to do with it. I was wondering if there has been any posts or emails for a missing bike. It was placed on the side of my house by a neighbor. If there is a bulletin or blog for things like this, let me know.

Any Suggestions?

The board could not agree with you more. We addressed this issue in the March 1, 2009 newsletter. You can click here to read the text. Stray/feral cats are a major problem and feeding them is only adding to the problem. It is very tempting to feed a pitiful animal but that is not the compassionate thing to do. By feeding the stray cats you are attracting them and they will only breed and make more cats. You need to call animal control at 248-1520 to have them trapped.

I'm posting a comment about the large number of stray cats in our neighborhood. If you choose to have an outdoor cat, please do the humane thing for them and get them spayed/neutered. You're creating a major problem by not doing so. There have been at least 2 litters of kittens found at the end of Seneca Ridge. I plan on taking one of the females that has been coming to my house, to get spayed, but I can't afford to get them all fixed! PLEASE TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR PETS!!!
