  4 a Greener Game- Cardinals The Cardinals began the "4 A Greener Game Program" at Busch Stadium during the 2008 season as a two month pilot program. After tremendous success, the program now averages over 25 volunteers per game with numbers increasing year after year. Since its inception, the program has diverted over 1,836 tons of recycling and over 575 tons of yard waste from the stadium trash disposal and local landfills. The program's success can be partially credited to 550 conveniently placed recycling bins around the stadium, making it easy for fans to recycle when they come to a baseball game. Success is also due in large part to volunteers who collect recyclables during games, and the maintenance staff who separate additional recyclables from the trash after a game.

Finally finished installing the tile backsplash on Mom & Dad's kitchen this morning.  I'd promised them I would do it before Christmas, and I finally got to it.  I am actually pretty happy with how it turned out.  Now, I want to do my own kitchen.... **All personal pictures and images/logos are the property of and copyrighted by Tim Tanz, and may not be reproduced or used without his permission.** I have been representing home buyers and home sellers in the St Louis Metropolitan Area since 1997.

The St. Louis Association of Realtors recently released home sale stats for 2012.  These statistics are a summary of the homes sold in St. Louis County and City, and were compiled to present information to the media and the National Association of Realtors. While the number of homes sold in 2012 were down from both 2009 and 2010, the stats show the number of homes sold compared to 2010 increased every month since June.  Great news! http://www.stlrealtors.com/template-working/site/resources.shtml **All personal pictures and images/logos are the property of and copyrighted by Tim Tanz, and may not be reproduced or used without his permission.** I have been representing home buyers and home sellers in the St Louis Metropolitan Area since 1997.
