SURPRISE! another plea bargain in Lyon County.

“One dog had to be destroyed.” Couldn’t you have used a nicer term? Items are destroyed, not living creatures.

So sad that millions of people depend on these platforms to communicate.

I would not be surprised if tomorrow’s headline has something to do with “famous instagram influencer commits suicide because of outage” I hope it doesn’t happen but won’t be surprised if it does.

For a s…

Yes, we are thankful to the workers that were up all night to fix the problem.

I question why a boil order wasn’t issued since the water pressure dropped so low? It appears the line that broke yesterday is the same “line” that ends up on prairie street between 15th and 18th that bro…

Yes, thank you to the city staff, but it IS their job.

If the city wasn’t emptying the coffers on land and other stuff that isn’t needed now, then more could be used on aging infrastructure and the water main breaks would severely slow or stop.

At least this time they got the …

Meanwhile…. The city is spending millions of dollars on land that they are just going to sit on. Remember this when you have no water pressure and if they issue a boil order for the next few days…….

There is so much money being spent an…

Just because there is a help wanted sign, doesn’t mean there is a similar position available, comparable wages, or work shifts that would allow them to care for other personal responsibilities like kids and elderly family members.

Let’s not forget to mention that some of the employe…

I think it’s a shame that someone would purchase the building and then push out a business that had been in that location for over 20 years and many more on Commercial St in general. They should of bought a different building. There’s plenty available. Shame on you……

They also could be waiting for the Men’s shelter to move so they can purchase that land, demolish the building, and have even more area to develop. No matter what they do, that intersection is so poorly design and I don’t see how it will even be easy or safe to visit Kwik Shop.
