Time to Use the Stairs

Today, Helen Anderson and I had a reminder of how tight the City has cut our capitol improvement budget.  
Many of us that ride the elevator in the City Center know just how tired the elevator is but I never suspected it would choose to die while I was riding in it.   
Just like the movies, Helen and I found ourselves stuck in the elevator.
Thanks to Dick Blackham for rescuing us.  
Dick and his team work miracles keeping our City running on a thin budget 
but this old thing might get the best of them.
Just one more reminder that I know the tax payers expect us to 
“use it up wear it out make it to or do without.”

A Night Off

Tonight Sue and I took the night off and headed to one of our favorite-Provo-really-good-deal-places.
For $1.50 each we saw Knight & Day.
“Someday” we’ll do it again.

Lions Park Miracle

 
No miracle here just hard work by a lot of committed neighbors to make their park better.  
I don’t have any numbers to prove it 
but I believe more neighborhood work has gone into this park than any other park we have.

Police Department gets the best of "Harley" the Harley dealership mascot

Austin Williams was on Fox 13 last morning with "Big Budah" at the Timpanogos Harley dealership spotlighting the Police Motorcycles. They had him do a competition against "Harley" the Harley dealership mascot (Austin won).
 
They also had the Police Motorcycle competition last Saturday.  Provo took 3rd overall among 54 contestants. 
 
A portion of monies generated from sales of food and merchandise was donated to the Honoring Hero's Foundation, which supports families of Law Enforcement Officers who died in the line of duty

Provo – In a League of Our Own

Mayor Curtis,
I thought I would pass along a feel-good activity our neighborhood participated in for a young, vibrant 27 year old wife and mother.  She participated in internationally ranked dancing competitions, soccer and softball.  Noticing a change in her physical condition, she was misdiagnosed for a year.  Finally found a neurologist who correctly named her condition as Multiple Sclerosis.  After 2 1/2 years of various treatments she was able to walk slowly and with much difficulty.  Our Lakewood neighborhood participated in a fundraiser involving a yard sale, family fair, and individual donations.  She was able to purchase walking aids that have helped enourmously in her mobility.   Just a small example of caring neighbors willing to go the extra mile for one of their own..  I  continue to feel Provo is in a League of its own when it comes to ordinary people doing extraordinary things with no desire for recognition or recompense.  
Terry Herbert
Lakewood Neighborhood Chair

YAHOO

We received the June sales tax report and we were up 9% from the previous year.  
This is the first year over year increase since May 2008.  
The state as a whole was up 11%.  
Hopefully the trend will continue and we will see increases over the prior year.
