Memorial Day Weekend News & Notes

As we all get ready for the eight back yard BBQs we are either hosting or attending check out the few tidbits from this past week:

1. As Mark discussed in an earlier post Highlands is kicking off phase II of the building campaign.  This phase will cost just over $3 million and will focus on the south building which still lacks air conditioning.  The original plan was for a new heating and air system, a wrap on the building, and a new roof, and other upgrades.

However, as I wrote on our Facebook page earlier this week, there was some talk that bids had come in much higher than expected and it sounds like the second phase may come in phases.

2. TANK also announced this week that they are making cuts to routes and Fort Thomas wasn't spared.  Although I doubt the changes will have much of an impact.   TANK also is looking at eliminating the No. 11 Fort Thomas / NKU route on Saturdays and the final run for that same route on weekday evenings. I would love to hear from anyone who uses the routes that will likely be axed.

3. Finally, there is a lot going on at the Y in the coming weeks.  Don't forget this weekend is the Open House and the summer opening of the pool.  In addition to open house, there is the upcoming World Famous Mountain Bike Race on June 19th, followed by the activities for the Fourth of July including the parade and the Firecracker 5K.  Registration for the Firecracker is now available on
