BULLETIN: Update From Tim/Archives Status

Hello, everyone! I hope all of you are doing well and have had a very Merry Christmas and holiday season. I do want to wish all of you well and hope all of you have been doing great. I sincerely apologize for all of those out there who were let down by my announcement in July 2014 when I announced that I was ending this blog. I am hoping that the neighborhood outside of my immediate area has been very quiet and despite my absence from being involved, things continue to improve. To give a brief update on what I'm doing nowadays and everything, I still attend Wright College and will be graduating in May with my Associate's in Criminal Justice, though Criminal Justice is not a field I really want to go into anymore. With the job I had over the summer, it changed my mind a lot on what exactly it is I want to do. I am planning on going into Business Administration or in a related field so that I can work and have a career in an office environment, serving others. Though, I may also go into a career related in Criminal Justice. I have a number of plans and time will just have to tell what God wants me to do (I am a born-again Christian for those who did not know, and not ashamed whatsoever to admit it). I am still involved in Student Government at school. I'll only have two classes this upcoming semester, plan to still be involved in SGA and I am also currently job hunting, trying to find a part-time position (which, actually, is pretty promising for one particular job I applied for at school). My time management skills are still pretty bad, and I still have a lot of obligations to fulfill. Lastly, I still have a LOT of archives from this blog from months and years ago, going back to I think 2012, to listen to. Which brings me to the point of doing this post. I wanted to let all of you that as of this evening, I am going to FINALLY begin posting calls and/or posts from archives I have during the time I blogged.

With that said, here is the latest status on whether this blog will permanently end or not. In all honestly, I do not have much time right now to keep the blog updated daily or even once a week. There is simply too much I still need to get done. Though, with me being on break from school from January 12th, there is a good chance that I will be able to catch up on a lot of archives as well as personal things. So with that said, if everything works out the way I plan for it to, I plan on making a full come back for this blog by March or April. By that time, I also want to begin putting my foot back in the door of neighborhood involvement. Since I ended this blog in July, I have not attended any community meetings or CAPS Beat meetings. I would my own CAPS meetings for my Beat, but I'm taking a class this semester that conflicts with the time of my Beat meetings.

Please find below the list of archives I will be starting tonight, December 26, 2014:
  • Friday, September 7, 2012 from 11:12am to 3:00pm (Zone 3)
  • Tuesday, December 11, 2012 from 8:22pm to midnight (Zone 3)

If anyone wants to at all help keep this effort for the remainder of 2014 into 2015, or to even contribute ideas, please do let me know. I will still be checking my crime blotter e-mail address ( The Facebook page was deleted due to inactivity, but if and when I make a come back, I will create a new one. I will also have a Twitter account. The blog will NOT be deleted, as I want to keep it up to give people an idea of how things have happened over the years, and there is possibility that I may return in the near future. I truly want to have this effort keep going. There are not many words I can describe to say how I would feel if there was another strong leader who could take charge and pick up from where I left off. I want this momentum to be revived and brought back to my original vision of being a neighborhood voice, to unify people and keep each other informed.

Truly Yours,
Tim "Timmy" Granzow
