North Thurston School Superintendent Dr. John Gott told the school board this week, that the district would have to turn to year-round schools if it couldn’t get  bond issues passed by the voters.   Gott was referring to the recent double-defeat of a bond issue to build new schools in the district.

The City of Lacey has received $72,800 from the federal government to install signals at the Burlington Northern railroad crossing at Sleater Kinney and Golf Club Road.  Cars will no longer be allowed to stop on the tracks when stopped at a red light.

In other news, the city has just passed an ordinance requiring all new construction in the city to include sidewalks and possibly curbs and gutters.
