Happenings around the Yeager's Home
If you live amongst other people you will have opportunities to have your heart warmed and your eyebrows raised. Here are some events and happenings I felt compelled to comment on.
There are many great families that live in Trenton High Meadows. One of them are our just across the street to the southwest of our home. The Hass family are staples of our neighborhood.
The Hass Home in the Winter of 2008-2009
The economic fluctuations of 2008 "caused" a number of foreclosures in our neighborhood. One was across the street at 120 Tiger Lane. The property got in such a state that the storage building blew over and the wind began removing roof panels and blowing them into the street. Despite multiple calls the property was only mowed once and the new owners had to clear the trash. Clearly Amy Smith and the Coldwell Banker Apex Realty of Rockwall, Texas will not go the extra mile to sell your property and should likely be avoided.

Fortunately a young Trenton High School coach and his family purchased and moved in to the home at 120 Tiger Lane. They are a dear young family and a welcome addition to the neighborhood.

There are some that in spite of multiple requests choose to ignore the deed restrictions of the Trenton High Meadows subdivision. (Fannin County Sheriff Department is less than useful here as well). The deed restrictions state in part the following:
Article I, Use Restriction of the Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions for Lots one through 73 of the Trenton High Meadows Addition state as follows:
Lot, or any portion thereof, shall be used or maintained as an auto wrecking or salvage yard, or as a dumping ground for rubbish, trash, garbage or other waste.
1.04 No Lot, or any portion thereof, shall be used for the purpose of storing junk automobiles, nor shall any portion of any
Lotbe allowed to have the appearance of a Junk or wrecking yard.
1.06 No building material or debris of any kind shall be placed or stored upon a
Lotexcept during construction.
Most everyone in Trenton High Meadows keep their property clean and well groomed. 121 Tiger Lane is an unfortunate exception.

It is not like the fire starts in some mysterious manner and the owner does not know about it.
Our neighbor down the street was very upset by Obama's election in November 2008. He had always proudly flown the Stars and Stripes with the United States Marine Corps flag since we have moved to 119 Tiger Lane. The morning after the election the Marine Corps is gone the United States flag is hung in distress.

The property owners of Trenton High Meadows whelmingly passed a referendum to initiate county take-over of the roads of the subdivision. Fannin County Precinct 2 Commissioner Stan Barker got a crew right to work maintaining the roads soon after the vote was official.
Fannin County equipment begins rebuilding the road starting with new base rock and reforming the crown on January 12, 2010.
New road being constructed for direct access to the northern portion of Trenton High Meadows in July 2010. This road extends dirctly from FM 815 to Harli Drive along the northern boundry of the Trenton High School property. This road cuts traffic on Tiger Lane by over 50%.
