The Lash and Wax Boutique at 517 N. 85th St. is relocating to the Greenlake Pointe Apartments building on the corner of North 80th Street and Interlake Avenue North, in the former Greenlake Wines space.

The Box and Bottle restaurant at 8576 Greenwood Ave. N. closed abruptly about a month ago. I emailed the owners for more information but never heard back. Its sister restaurant, The Blue Glass on 65th Street, remains open.

Brad tells us there has been a series of tire slashings around Palatine Avenue North and North 110th Street in Greenwood recently. He knows of at least four or five that happened last week.

My car tire and a friends were slashed on Thursday night and I have seen others changing tires in the neighborhood. I have filed a Police report and urge others in the area to report similar incidents. I witnessed a suspicious person creeping around in all black Sunday night around 12:30 AM with a bike and multiple bags, he took off when he saw our headlights and car pull up he then circled the block but I lost sight of him. I should have called 911 but didn’t, then woke to find a friends tire slashed in front of our house.

Bartell Drugs is again partnering with the Salvation Army to provide holiday gifts for children in need by collecting new, unwrapped toys during its annual “Toy ‘N Joy” drive, from Nov. 16 through Dec. 13. Toy donations will be accepted at all Bartell locations, including the Greenwood store at 120 N. 85th Street. You can choose a gift request tag from the “Toy ‘N’ Joy” display in the store and return the gift to the donation barrel with the tag affixed to it, or donate any new, unwrapped gift appropriate for children up to 14 years old.

Tanya says her family has six, 8-foot-tall Leyland Cypresses at their Phinney Ridge home, but they are too big for their yard. They’d like to donate them to someone who is willing to dig them up and move them. If interested, email her.
