Crime Date Time Where?
On January 17—an attack was reported by a woman on the Ox Bow Park trail at 10 p.m. on a Friday night. On Jan. 29
it came out that it was a hoax. San Antonio Police Chief William McManus said the allegation about an attack that took
place on Jan. 17 on the trails at the Leon Creek Greenway never happened and the woman just made it up. Police Chief
McManus said, “This simply didn't happen. Crime is actually down in the parks -- way down -- and it’s just
unfortunate that the city and people who use these parks to go and relax and exercise had to have that concern.”
Police presence has been stepped up in the area. But they encourage anyone walking or jogging in the area to keep
these crime prevention tips in mind:

Greetings Oxbow Neighbors,
This purpose of this letter is to inform you both about the status of ONA and to let you know why your dues are needed.
As you may or may not know the Oxbow Neighborhood Association is volunteer organization that was founded to bring neighbors together (renters and homeowners) in order to:
Historically we have collected ONA dues in the month of July. We will do so again this year. But things are different this year.
Because of lack of participation from our residents the ONA Board has decided to no longer conduct neighborhood meetings or deliver ONA Newsletters, at least for the immediate future. It makes no sense for us to plan meetings, retain speakers and facilities for the same six to eight people each time we meet. Because we have been unsuccessful in recruiting volunteers for Board positions we are now down to three Board members. We need at least five and should preferably have eight. The newsletters have ceased because we cannot get volunteers to help deliver them.
In order to conserve what little funds we have, the water has been shut off to the island. So the only two reoccurring bills left are the web site and the electric bill for the island spotlights. We want keep the lights on because it sends the wrong message about our neighborhood if we don’t. And we feel the web site is still a good way to get general information out to the residents.
In 2013 we had seventeen neighbors pay dues out of approximately 1,100 homes in our neighborhood. Of that seventeen, five were Board members.
So what is the future of ONA? If enough people come forth and fill Board positions, including President, and we find there are more people willing to participate in meetings etc., we will resume neighborhood meetings and other activities as well. If you would like to begin participating in our neighborhood association please go to our web site or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Until that time we plan to continue in this more inactive mode. Please consider paying your dues so we can keep the web site up and the lights on.
Your ONA Board of Directors
