Has the city’s response been adequate in light of the first major ‘snowstorm of the season?’

Yes! Days before the storm, I went for a run through Lake Boren and I saw the preparations of the trucks, equipment and all. They were ready. When the storm came on Sunday, the plows were hard at work and didn’t stop until it was over days later.

The city has done a really good job in my part of Newcastle keeping the roads as passable as possible under difficult conditions. I live on a neighborhood arterial, and the plow and sander are constantly going by. I was amazed on Monday morning that they had been working all night, the results being the road was very clear. It has remained so all week.

Excellent, I saw them out there at 2:30 in the morning!

The magnitude of the storm was unusual for the region. I thought they did what they could given their tools. The city should close some hills sooner rather than later. We saw foolhardy drivers attempting dumb maneuvers and then abandoning their cars when it didn’t work out.

What are your thoughts on the City Council providing funding in its 2012 budget for a reconstructed covered stage at Lake Boren Park?

Seems reasonable. That park is the heart of our city, and that stage gets a lot of use in the summer. Just build it to withstand wind shear.

— Lee Strom

This would be an excellent investment. Lake Boren is the hub and pride of the community that brings both sides of Newcastle (the 98056 and 98059 sides) together and provides a welcome place for visitors.

As the library takes shape on Newcastle Way, what are you most excited for when it opens?

Teaching my kids about the joys of reading, research and books.

— Trina Sooy

I constantly put books on hold, and I am really looking forward to the convenience of being able to pick them up close to home. And to dropping by to relax and read the magazines.

— Valerie Young

Books, music, videos and meeting rooms! We’re members of various small organizations/clubs and finding quiet places to meet is always a challenge.
