Work trucks on street

Posted by Lauren O'Doherty on January 13, 2017 at 6:54pm 1 Comment

Does anyone know the rule for parking a work truck on the street? I've had a Comcast can out front of my home for 72 hours and this is not the first time. It's very frustrating because it not only takes up a spot in front of my home but it blocks my view when I back out of my driveway.

NOT GUILTY

In a surprising move (to me, anyway) the man who shot Officer Marc Hanly was found not guilty of every charge except "recklessly endangering a civilian".

Billboards again

Posted by Linda Shockley on August 16, 2016 at 8:40pm 4 Comments

I and my neighbors will see this one all the time; it's also higher than the trees. I see it now so when it's lit I'll probably be able to read it.
