Mountain Green has  2 book clubs in the Highlands/Monte Verde area. One club is chaired by Carole McCain and has about 9 ladies attending. They meet monthly on the first Tuesday.  They met this week and discussed The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton. The book covers 3 generations.  A young girl is sent to Australia without her parents.  Her grand-daughter researches and discovers her grand-mother’s mysterious past in England.

This month they are reading The Witch of Blackbird Pond--a “Halloween” story set in Puritan times.  For November they are reading The Ladies Number One Detective Agency (the first book in the series) by Alexander McCall.  

One of the ladies presents 3 books each month and the group selects one to read for the coming month.  If you are interested in the joining the group, call Carole.

On Monday night Sept. 12, 2011, there was a bear sighting in the Mountain Green Neighborhood of Monte Verde. It was around 10:30 P.M. when the sighting of the black bear occurred. One of the home owner’s goats was killed by the bear. The homeowner went out and shot at the bear as the bear was trying to go for his other goat. The bullet hit the bear, but the bear wandered off, wounded up into the hills. Wildlife management is still in search of the bear as it’s still on the loose. If you see any sightings of the bear please report to the local authorities.
