  2. Hello, we live in Excelsior Spring court. My daughter is starting kindergarten in fall at Manor woods. I am looking for anyone who would be able to watch her for about 45 minutes in the morning and help her board the bus, and then pick her up from school at 5:50 or so (when after-school care finishes), bring her home and watch her again for about 20 minutes.

  5. I just wanted to personally comment and promote Jonathan Kahl’s Odd Jobs work.
    I e-mailed him last week and he and Brady came to my house on Saturday as planned on-time.

    They were here for about 4 hours and did a variety of jobs to help us get our home ready for sale.
    They moved furniture and boxes, installed outlet covers, and even raked the yard and moved snow that would not melt.
    Jonathan and Brady were very polite, accommodating and I highly recommend using them if you need some work to be done.

    I’m also a Realtor and will also recommend Jonathan to clients that need a few extra hands.
    I’ll be calling Jonathan again in the next few weeks!

  6. Hello Friends & Neighbors! My family is participating in Brittany’s Hope Walk of Love Fundraiser. Brittany’s Hope places adoption grants on special needs children living in orphanages around the world & also provides them with necessities while there. Our son, Nicholas, was a grant recipient in 2009 and we’ve seen firsthand the amazing impact this organization has on the lives of those they touch. Please consider supporting this worthy cause. Every dollar of every donation goes directly to helping orphans. All administrative & other costs are covered through corporate sponsors. For more information and to make a donation, please go to this link. https://www.crowdrise.com/nicholasnforbrittanyshope/fundraiser/julieneaman

    Thank you so much for reading and considering this.

  10. Friends and Neighbors

    My name is Dennis Frey and I have lived in TVO for 20 years with my wife and two children
    who both attended and graduated from Howard County Schools.

    I am a recently retired educator with 20 years teaching experience at the high school
    and college level and am now offering math and computer science tutoring services.
    I offer one-on-one tutoring services at your home, my home or an agreeable public location. Remote tutoring is possible
    if necessary. I am providing these services because I love to teach, therefore you’ll
    find that my rates are lower than almost all tutors you can find through tutoring companies.
    With degrees in both Mathematics and Computer Science you’ll also find that
    I am more qualified than most other tutors.

    With final exams and SATs coming up I hope you’ll contact me soon.
    You can reply to this email (dlfrey@verizon.net) or freytutoring@gmail.com or call/text me
    at 443-878-2713. You can also visit my website at freytutoring.wordpress.com to see a
    complete list of subjects and read actual student comments. Local reference is available
    upon request. If I can’t help you, I can refer you to other tutors.

    Please feel free to share my information with other friends and neighbors.

  11. Painting Contractor Recommendations from others in TVO I/II:

    Recently (10/21/2014) I sent an email asking for recommendations for an interior painter. Many responded with their favorites and this is a summary of those responses. Note that I have not contacted any of these individuals yet, so these are other people’s comments, not mine. Your mileage may vary!

    * Charlie Soos (410) 949-6228 “Very reliable and trustworthy and he lives in the area”
    * Carlos (410) 949-6228 “very neat, good quality and super inexpensive”
    * Keith Greenwade from “Handyman Services”….. greenwaderemodeling@yahoo.com – “They’ll do a great job of preparation by fixing nail pops, drywall tape etc as well as actually painting”. “I second Keith Greenwade. We have used their family for years and they are very good and reliable.”
    * Bill Dronenburg 443-745-4734 “did some painting for us several years ago, and he did a great job”
    * Wayne Lanehart, 410/418-8568 “We’ve used him frequently. Seems reasonable. Very timely and high quality”
    * Roberto Rosales (410)982-4345
    * Keith Gist PRIDE PAINTING CONTRACTORS, INC (410) 876-8322 “The painting company we are going to use is one that we have use often at work and have been pleased with them”

  12. Contractor Recommendations –

    Ken Smith
    K.P.S. Contracting
    Kitchens, Bathrooms, Tile, Custom Decks, Additions, All Types of Renovations
    Tel 410-313-9996
    Cell 410-984-6431
    http://kpscontracting.com (I don’t recommend using the email on his web page as he doesn’t check often.)
    If you leave a message on his home phone and you don’t hear back from him, call again. His teenage daughter uses that phone too and sometimes he doesn’t get the messages. Otherwise, he’s really good about returning calls very promptly.

    He built our screened porch in 10/09. We were very happy with his work, and he is very personable and easy to work with. We highly recommend him.

    Fireplaces – Installation, cleaning, repair

    21st Century Fireplace Services
    He put in our gas fireplace around 2003? Very nice guy and I highly recommend him. He used to work through Ace Hardware and is now independent, but still does installs for them. Ask if he has any specials coming up.
