Q: * Why is it that some days I do not see the gas prices listed on the homepage of the Courier website?

A: Click here to read the story. It is scheduled to be complete in 2015.
Q: * Have you considered using a another comment system like disqus or facebook? The one you currently use can get a little confusing.
A: Yes. In fact, we are currently working on a change we hope to implement this year.
Q: * Why is the city, I assume it's the city, removing the rock finish from the retaining walls along Willow Creek road? The rock veneer does not appear to be in disrepair and the exposed concrete is ugly in comparison.
A: The city has done this on the walls up from the current work site. The faux rocks they are fake - did not adhere properly and have been falling off. As we reported in prior years, the city is removing them because of the liability. To see what the wall, such as near Montana Drive, will look like "finished," drive south-southwest on Willow Creek Road to where the work is complete.

A: Click here to read the story. The money is coming from the Beneful contest resident Linda Nichols won.
Q: * What's the word on the new dog park? Wasn't it supposed to be in the process by now? If I remember right, it was supposed to start construction in March.
