Who’s NOT planning a BBQ this weekend? If the weather holds and you’ve got propane or charcoal, chances are, you’re grilling something with your friends and family. Here, new ideas for keeping your costs down. Sponsored by Home Depot.
Here at Patch, we like to be thrifty, so we talked to two barbeque experts and uncovered some really good ideas to help you save money on your next outdoor party. 1. Start with a marinade.

Residents object to parking lot proposal, saying it doesn't conform to neighborhood's master development land use plan.
Editor's note: The author of this report is a parishioner of Our Lady of Lourdes. OLD FOURTH WARD — After some 45 minutes of impassioned debate, the Fourth Ward Neighbors community association on Tuesday voted against supporting a plan by Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church to rezone a vacant lot for parking. The church has the 1.36-acre tract sits off Edgewood Avenues and is bordered by Boulevard and Daniel and Gartrell streets under contract as part of its long-term expansion plans. Those plans include the construction of a new, larger sanctuary to replace the existing one that fronts Boulevard.

When the teen realized he had an audience watching, he ran. Officers gave chase on foot, caught him and charged the youth with attempted robbery. The teen, who was not named because he is a minor, was taken to the METRO Youth …
