Now, here's what's making news for April 10, 2019:
City Council to review construction contract for improvements to Denton Ave, Glendon Way, Lafayette St
As part of the 2018 CDBG Street Improvement Project, the City has been authorized to proceed with new asphalt pavement, new access ramps and new striping and pavement markings to .6 miles of streets in the community.

You can read more about these items and others in our preview of the April 16 City Council meeting.
Catch "Blackmail" at the Playhouse on April 14
Silent Sundays fans: be sure to catch "Blackmail" on April 14 at 2:30 p.m. Directed by the master of suspense Alfred Hitchcock, the 1929 thriller is considered one of his earliest masterpieces.

James Steffen calls the film a "beautifully crafted early exercise in nail biting suspense from Hitchcock's pre-Hollywood canon."
