Help Finding Lost Cat

Dear KHA:

We are asking for assistance in finding our lost cat. He is a grey striped tabby with green eyes. Very sweet but VERY shy. Answers to “Artemis.” He is declawed and is not wearing a collar. We think he got out of the house today when VacMan was at the house cleaning the furnace ductwork, and the front door was open. If we’re correct, he’s been gone for hours.

We live at 16690 Hampton Drive – just at the corner of Hampton and Greenway Drive, across the street from the Knollwood Country Club putting green. If anyone sees a grey tabby, could they call or text my husband Jess Hollis at (217) 778-0252?

Thank you so much!
Laura Hollis

Speaking on behalf of all Knollwood residents the Knollwood Board thank Sally for stepping up and volunteering to serve. Sally will be missed!

Sally’s departure leaves the Knollwood Homeowners Association without a President. I won’t spell out what not having a President means because the implications should be self-evident.

Leaf Pick-up Update

KHA board member Augie Freda received this email in response to his inquiry on the status of the St Joseph County leaf pick-up efforts.


To say this year’s leaf pick-up is a mess, literally and figuratively, is a complete understatement. To answer your questions:

1 – The third pick-up will take place once the weather permits.
2 – The spring pick up will still happen.
3 – We will be looking into the option of continuing with leaf pick-up early next year. Thankfully Councilman O’Brien is going to work through the process.

Thanks, and we do truly appreciate your patience through this process!
