Our coverage of the tree trimming – called butchering by some – of trees on 39th Street by Google Fiber continued. We also kept you updated on the ongoing mess around property tax reassessment. The county is now sending out new notices to people whose reassessments may have been too high.  And the school district said it has made improvement in test scores and may be closer to provisional accreditation.

In the area of community safety, the city health commission called for fighting violence as a disease (and several of our readers took issue on Facebook).  We also heard about a new group called Mothers In Charge which is speaking to young people about the pain of losing children.

Neighborhood news included a call for nominations for people who are improving the quality of life in our community, and an offer to train individuals and neighborhood to respond to disasters. We also learned that the Spay and Neuter Clinic is responding to a large influx of pregnant cats and newborn kittens. Also, the restoration of Roanoke Park continued, with hiking/biking trails getting their official grand opening.

A local movie company was in Westport filming a movie trailer, and musicians and artists gathered on Broadway to keep awareness of Oklahoma tornado victims alive.
