Your Help is Needed.  
The Blood Supply levels have been raised from Critical to Urgent in the past day.   People are not donating like they use to and we need your help!   You can donate at our local Alliance Carter Blood Care Doner Center at Blue Mound Road and Basswood.
(7260 Blue Mound Rd., Suite 140 - 817-412-5917)

  1. The local blood supply is now critical as blood donations have decreased over the last two weeks, in spite of community appeals.
  2. The 15-month blood shortage is not sustainable and will lead to limitations in medical services if there are not enough blood donors to boost the supply.
  3. Hospitals are already making daily decisions about patients' transfusion requirements because of the chronically low blood supply.
  4. Carter BloodCare is encouraging all healthy individuals, ages 16 and over, to make an appointment to donate blood.   Call or text 800-366-2834 or visit www.carterbloodcare.org to make an appointment online. Walk-ins are accepted.
  5. Bring a friend when you donate blood. There are thousands of qualified people who have never been invited to give blood.   A key reason why a person doesn't donate blood is because they have never been asked to do so.
  6. The current situation could put patient lives at risk.

Please spread the word, we have to get a response for people to understand that we are in danger of losing loved ones, neighbors, family, Church Members, and the list goes on. Please help us now.

A 19-building development is under construction in this North Fort Worth neighborhood

This is a rendering of the Victory Shops at Basswood, a retail development that will go in the southeast corner of Basswood Boulevard and Blue Mound Road.   The first buildings will be finished in spring 2019.

FORT WORTH - The southeast corner of Basswood Boulevard and North Blue Mound Road will soon be home to a new retail development called Victory Shops at Basswood.

Managed by the Segovia Retail Group, Shops at Basswood is a development that will spand over 26 acres.   It will include 19 buildings, one of the dedicated to a grocery store.   According to site plans, Lidl- a grocery chain based along the East coast, will go in the grocery space.

Other companies that are set to go in the space include: Chase Bank Jersey Mike's Subs, Chipotle, Verizon, Andy's Frozen Custard and Brakes Plus.

There will also be a Starbucks, which is open now.

The retail development is likely to be a huge draw for the 2,000 students at Saginaw High School, since the stores and restaurants will be right across North Blue Mound Road from the school.

The construction for the first building of the development will be complete early this year.

Here is the proposed layout of Victory Shops

Six tips for handling fall yard trimmings and brush

With fall in full swing, you probably have leaves that need to be raked and trees and shrubs that need to be trimmed.   Here are a few reminders from the city's Solid Waste Services Division about how to dispose of yard trimmings and brush.


  1. Bag it Place leaves, grass, clippings and other small trimmings in paper yard bags that can be purchased at grocery stores, hardware and garden stores.   Roll the paper yard bag top closed; don't staple or tape it to close it.   There is a 40-pound limit for yard waste bags.
  2. Bundle it
    Use string or twine to bundle shrub and tree trimmings.   Bundles should be no more than four feet long and weigh no more than 40 pounds.   People, not machines, pick these up by hand.   There is no limit on the number of tied bundles you can set out.
  3. Stack it
    Individual tree and shrub limbs up to eight feet long and four inches in diameter can be stacked at the curb on your weekly pickup day.   No plastic bags, garbage, bulk items, stumps or root balls are accepted in brush piles.   Root balls and stumps (maximum 18-inch diameter) can be placed in the bulk items pile.   To avoid collection charges, make sure piles do not exceed 10 cubic yards.
  4. Drop it off
    Residents can take brush to one of the city's four drop-off stations.   Find one at FortWorthTexas.gov/solidwaste/dropoff.   The city recycles organic materials to make mulch, which helps save your watering costs and increases the beauty of your turf, trees and landscape beds.
  5. Compost it
    Learn more about backyard composting at FortWorthTexas.gov/compostoutpost.   Or click here.
  6. Recycle it
    Use your blue recycling cart for items like cardboard, planting trays and plastic plant containers.   Put items like potting soil bags in your trash cart.

Styrofoam recycling now available in Fort Worth

Fort Worth residents can now recycle many items made of plastic foam - also known as Styrofoam or polystyrene - at any of the city's four drop-office stations.

Q. Why isn't plastic foam recyclable in my blue cart?

A. Plastic foam will break into very small pieces in the truck before it reaches the sorting facility.   Once it's broken into small pieces, it's nearly impossible to contain and sort into recycling.

Q. How does Styrofoam recycling work?

A. Styrofoam is densified by shredded, then compacted into logs called gaylords.   These logs are palletized and shipped off to be recycled into items like crown molding and picture frames.

Q. What kind of plastic foam are accepted?

A. Cups, coolers and foam ice chests; egg cartons; rigid packaging such as Styrofoam used for shipping and packing electronics and other items; to-go clamshell containers for food items.

Q. What's not accepted?

A. Peanuts; colored, dyed or treated Styrofoam; Construction/sliding foam; meat and food trays; flexible packing sheets; plastic or paper containers.  Remember: empty, clean and dry.   No contaminated items with food, grease or stains.

Q. Where are the drop-off stations located? (See above)

A. Find the nearest station online at FortWorthTexas.gov/solidwaste/dropoff.

If there is significant activity reported, the police will treat this area as a 'Hot Spot' and you will see more patrols here.
