November Yards of the Month
Prescription Drug Disposal Sites. The Richardson Police Department experienced a higher than normal volume of people who attended/dropped off medications at the DEA Drug Take Back event this past Saturday. So many attended that we used up all the disposal boxes provided by the DEA in 2 hours. I have fielded questions on where people can drop off medications. The DEA website has listed permanent year round disposal locations in the community. All you have to do is visit the website and plug in your zip code for the nearest permanent collection site. As always you may want to call ahead just to be sure that the collection site listed is still participating in this program.
DEA Authorized Collectors provide year round drop off locations to the public to dispose of unwanted pharmaceuticals.
If anyone has any questions please contact the Richardson Police Departments Crime Prevention Unit at 972-744-4955.
A day late - but here are the Yards of the Month for October.
FAKE JEWELRY SCAM
Please be aware of individuals attempting to sell “gold” jewelry on the street. You may be approached with stories that play on your sympathy such as “We’re from out of state and need gas money to get home” or “ My wife and kids are hungry”. The scammer will then present jewelry (rings, necklaces, etc.) that they portray as being gold and offer to sell them to you at a lesser price than they are worth. People have fallen for this scam thinking they are getting a great deal, but they eventually find out later the jewelry is not gold and is worthless.
These scammers prey on peoples “goodness, gullibility and greed”.
Do not buy jewelry from someone on the street.
If you have an encounter of this nature, please obtain good descriptions of the suspects and their vehicle and call the Richardson Police Department at 972-744-4800.
Here we have our September Yards of the Month in Creek Hollow Estates.
COVID-19 - remember to not only wash your hands but also wash before and after putting away groceries, before cooking or putting away dishes. After doing yard work, petting an animal or touching anything in a restroom. If you use a cane, your vehicles steering wheel, radio buttons or gear shifts.
These Fire Safety Tips were received from the Richardson Fire Marshall and we want to share them with you.
Fireworks are often used to mark special events and holidays. The only safe way to view fireworks is to attend a professional show. With many professional firework shows being canceled this year, it is important to know that fireworks are not safe
in the hands of consumers. Fireworks cause thousands of injuries each year. A few ideas to get into the patriotic spirit, without fireworks:
1. Use glow sticks, they glow in the dark and are a safe alternative to a sparkler. Fun for
2. Loud and proud. Noise makers are sure to make a statement. They can be found at local
party supply stores or make your own.
3. Outdoor movie night. Set up a screen and projector.
Don’t forget the bugspray!
4. Red, white and blue silly string…fun for all ages.
5. Make a patriotic craft with the family.
6. Throw a birthday party for the USA, and don’t forget
• More than 19,500 reported fires are started by fireworks annually.
• Burns account for 44% of the 9,100 injuries treated in
emergency rooms seen in the
month around July 4.
•Half of the fireworks injuries seen at emergency rooms were
extremities: hand, finger, or leg. One-third were to the eye or
other parts of the head.
•Children ages 10–14 had the highest rate of fireworks injury,
with more than one-third (36%) of the victims of fireworks injuries under age 15.
•Sparklers account for roughly one-quarter of emergency room fireworks injuries.

Creek Hollow Cancellations
The City of Richardson is being as proactive as possible to help limit the spread of Coronavirus/COVID-19. As of Friday morning, March 13th, the City announced the cancellation, postponement, and/or modifications to municipal events scheduled to take place immediately and until Thursday, April 30, 2020. The city feels this is a responsible step to take with the guidance and experience provided by health experts, and this will also help us to limit exposure to all Richardson employees, facilities, and residents.
In response and in support of the City of Richardson, the Creek Hollow HOA is also cancelling all Creek Hollow meetings and events for March through April. This will be reevaluated in mid-April and any updates provided both via email (if you have signed up for our newsletter), Next Door, and our web site.

We will also attempt to keep links to sites with reliable information for use by our neighbors up to date on the Creek Hollow web site. Please try to use these sites and pass on this information and avoid passing on information obtained by more unreliable sources.

AT&T Fiber Construction
As you may know a major project is underway by AT&T to install updated fiber optic lines in parts of our community. The work taking place here is part of a much larger project taking place in the Dallas/Fort Worth area along with other parts of the state. The work involves the use of contractors that are burying new communication lines that run along the utility easements or right-of-way located either in the street or in the alley way of neighborhood homes. In many cases they will be placing these new lines underground, but in some cases they may also be working on overhead lines.
AT&T has informed the City of Richardson that it will restore any areas disturbed during the construction process, and that its goal is to minimize the disruption in our neighborhood while work is underway.
AT&T utility activities are scheduled to take place within the next couple of weeks, and should last at most three months in the neighborhoods where they are working. If you have any questions, please call or email AT&T customer service representatives at the number and/or e-mail provided to us below. They inform us that they will try to respond to all questions within 24 to 48 business hours.
