On Saturday, February 8th the ABC Streets Neighborhood Association held its own Olympic challenge – our annual Chili Cook-off. Six chefs vied for the honor of Gold, Silver and Bronze Medals. Two dozen spectators tasted and compared the options – from vegetarian to hearty meat variations. Our esteemed judging panel – Elaine Spaull, Barb Kraus and Susan Glenz –handed down the final decision and the prizes were awarded:
- Gold – Susan Hondorf – Harvard Street – Hondorf Secret Family Recipe
- Silver – Tom Pastecki – Calumet Street – Beefy Beer Chili
- Bronze – Nancy Sears – Calumet Street – Turkey Chili with Walnuts
Several excellent homemade corn bread options and yummy desserts were available as an accompaniment to the chili. Thanks to our generous hosts, Dave and Irene, who made sure the chili’s stayed hot and the assortment of beverages stayed cold and also supplied the winner’s prizes. To see some photos click HERE.
The swirling snow softly fell on the party-goers for the annual ABC Streets Holiday Celebration. Suspended icicles twinkling with color, beckoned all from behind a veil of sparkling snowflakes. The warm and inviting home of Nancy & Brian Sears greeted the revelers dressed in full holiday regalia. Winter greenery adorned the fireplace mantel and lights danced on the decorated glass ornaments and dangling faceted crystals. A vintage toy train traveled around the decorated Christmas tree and completed the holiday ensemble.
Festive finger foods, dreamy deserts and bubbly beverages kept the revelers happy in catch-up conversation.
As the celebration concluded, a winter wonderland lay waiting. As all walked out of sight, the winter winds whispered “Happy Holidays to all and to all a good night.” Submitted by: Barb Kraus

The weather cooperated on Saturday with bright sunny skies and warm temps as a troop of neighbors, armed with rakes and trimmers, got together to put Morrison Park “to bed” for the Winter. The hostas were cropped and the leaves were raked and some new tulip bulbs were planted so that we can capture the first hints of Spring. Thanks to everyone from the neighborhood who participated and thanks also to Nancy Johns Price and her city team that lent us the gear and made sure the street got cleaned up when we were done.
The fall colors are brilliant today in our wonderful neighborhood!
Ghouls and goblins swooped in Saturday last to Castle Alexander for their annual parade through the town. The leaves were swirling and the winds carried the witches, fairies, dragons, princesses, super heroes and their guardians down the cobbled street toward the foggy Kraus family cemetery where their images were captured for all eternity. The howling hound called them to Herr Hasman’s cozy Inn for a feast of mulled cider, mummified remains, newt’s eyes, and sweet black spiders. View their images, if you dare……. . Photos HERE
It must be fall the mums are out!
