Trail to Heartland Bank

To the Residents of Tanglewood;

The Trail to Heartland Bank should not be used to dispose of yard waste, this trail is maintained by Hometown America & Heartland bank with regards to Mowing, depositing debris on the trail can present a problem for the mowers. This trail is also private property, it is against the law to dispose of waste material on such.

Tanglewood has twice a month pick up for yard debris you pay for this service let’s use it!

Let’s try to keep this trail clean, residents of Tanglewood do bike, hike, and walk their dogs on this trail, it is the one place where you can give your dog some free no leash time. It is greatly appreciated if dog walkers would please pick up after their dogs, when an individual has to step off the trail for a cart it can be a sticky, messy problem.

Update: April 16, 2014, Some people who walks their dog apparently  feel it is not their responsibility to pick up after them. Today I noticed accumulation of several  areas of dog excrement  on trail, plus two plastic pickup bags with waste thrown on side of the trail? When you pick it up please dispose of properly in waste containers provide by Hometown America

HTA Management has expressed concerns about driving carts on the pond berm, it is killing the grass during these dry spells. Eventually this will lead to berm erosion with the rainy season approaching. Please try to keep carts on the dirt trail as much as possible.

Also, many are concerned with people following through the gate, it is difficult
to know who belongs in the park and who doesn’t, please use transmitter.

When exiting the park and you see someone at the gate waiting, DO NOT key them in unless you know them, see a Tanglewood sticker, or they are a commercial business like UPS/FEDX.

It is important to be aware of what is going on in your neighborhood, report suspicious activity  to Melvin Ridley  numbers are in the Tanglewood directory. Do not hesitate to call 911 if you feel it  requires the response of the law enforcement.

We cannot stress this enough; It is important that you remember these few important things to protect your car, and home:

  • Remember to lock your car, Be sure windows are up.
  • Remove your keys from the golf cart,
  • Beware of leaving your house key on the same ring as the cart key, you not only jeopardize your cart being stolen, but also your house being broken into later.
  • Take care to lock your windows after a day of letting the fresh air in.

Dangerous situations
By: Jack Nelson
What is wrong with this picture?

  • Riding a bike at night,
  • Walking at night,
  • Dark cloths,
  • No lights on bike,
  • Flashlight in hand walking or riding?

Folks, if you are  going to ride a bike in the park or anywhere for that matter at night, you must have the minimum legal lights on the bike;

  • One white light to the front, 
  • One Red light to the rear.

A flashlight in hand is not a proper light for a bike.
If walking at night wear light colored clothes, make sure you swing your flashlight so it may be seen from the front and rear, a flashlight pointing at the ground cannot be seen by people approaching in a car.

Lets be safe rather than sorry, we do not want to see anyone get injured .
