We saw good work by neighbors on the Villas on Guadalupe and around the Northeast landfills. Special praise, however, goes to the three non-Bradley-ized Southwest neighbor groups who jumped into the Stratus fray -- Cherry Creek Neighborhood Association, Circle C Neighborhood Association, and the Village at Western Oaks Homeowners Association -- despite being stereotyped, for years, by both sides, as part of the problem and not the solution. Standing up for the rights and needs of citizens, whatever and wherever they are, is what community activism is all about.
