Crack House At 3020 6th Street N. Finally Emptied, Chairman Peter Teachout's Wife Goes Into Labor...

See below for photo credits

Today was a memorable day in the Hawthorne Eco Village cluster project, as the infamous pill house/ crack house / whore house at 3020 6th St. N. was finally evacuated and boarded up. Within several hours, right across the street at the Teachout residence, JoyAnne Teachout (wife of Hawthorne Neighborhood Council Board Chair Peter Teachout) went into labor with her fourth child, known to be a boy.

This news was first broken by Hawthorne Housing Director Jeff Skrenes on his Facebook profile. Jeff also said, "This is not just victory, this is conquest."

God Himself appears to bless our efforts as evidenced by this incredible not-quite-a-coincidence of a major end and a major beginning on the same day. Let us send thoughts and prayers to JoyAnne Teachout for a safe delivery of the youngest Teachout child, quite possibly any minute, now. 

PHOTO CREDITS: Top photo by Jeff Skrenes. Photos of the Teachout family were taken by the two oldest Teachout children, Peter and Rose. Note the serious expression on JoyAnne's face. While Peter works in the foreground, crackheads were openly doing business across the street.

But no more.

Skrenes, it's a little hard to say. It's "Skree-nes", Norwegian. You should add that as a service to your readers.
