Road construction

August 26, 2013 - Blaine Hyska
We all should be looking forward to improved roadways as area communities begin road construction projects.

Maybe it has to do with fiscal year budgets, but it always seems these projects begin right around the time students return to school. There is no “good” time to disrupt traffic, but it seems to me that this time of year has to rank right up there as among the worst times.

I’m thankful these projects are being done. I just hope some official somewhere will figure out a better time of year to do them.

It would be a great convenience for community residents.

Speaking of thankful, I wish to remind area residents who submit Speak Out letters, and/or Letters to the Editor that we do not publish “thank you” notes in Speak Out or as Letters to the Editor.

These items are handled by our Classified Advertising Department.

In a page from the TV show, Person of Interest, police tracked the theft of a purse from the parking lot of the Marquette Walmart store to the Marquette Target store parking lot.

No one likes thieves, but if they can see that, you need to be aware that authorities are watching you even in U.P. parking lots. That’s not all. Some residents in LaCrosse, Wis., are trying to raise $475,000 to help police install 41 cameras that will continually record activity downtown.

I can hear the sheep now.

“The government watching us? Why that’s just silly.”
