Readers Talk Rosewood Beach, BBQ and Toilets
Residents, plumbers, restauranteurs and more in Sunday's blog roundup.
There's been a lot going on in Highland Park Patch's Local Voices. Check out our weekly recap of the site's blogs (and if you're interested in blogging yourself, click here to start).

"We can’t be shortsighted," she writes. "If we’re addressing basic infrastructure needs for Rosewood we can do more, we should.

- Family: Amy Greenebaum continues her blog about raising a child with autism with a fascinating post about the strong friendship between her son and one of his childhood classmates.

"As a small business owner, I believe that the best ideas come when we work together and find common ground," he writes. The Congressman hopes to get more community involvement in his effort to "get America back to work."
