PA NEIGHBORHOODS ON RECORD ... Three Palo Alto neighborhoods are now commemorated in song by Agony Aunts, a local '60s-style band that includes Palo Alto Weekly Editorial Assistant Karla Kane. The CD, entitled "Greater Miranda", includes songs named for Leland Manor and Evergreen Park, along with the title song, which includes many street names in the lyrics. The album was released on Oct. 10 on Mystery Lawn Music, owned by former Weekly Associate Editor Allen Clapp. The neighborhoods tracks can be heard at GREER PARK RE-OPENING ... A public opening to dedicate the Phase IV reconstruction of Greer Park is scheduled for Dec. 11 at 1 p.m. The dedication will celebrate Midtown residents Jean and Charles Scott, who were leaders in the original West Bayshore Neighborhood Association, which fought to turn the land into a park. After 40 years, the last 2 acres are finally developed. The area will be called Scott Meadows in their honor. The dedication is open to the public.
