Blog Watching, Week Ending August 3, 2014

As part of a weekly feature on the blog, every Sunday we offer up this weeks recap of the top five items viewed over the course of the last seven days.

Included in the countdown, we will provide links to the articles in question, offering up with one click of the mouse, those items of the week that you may have missed.

This week, notes of interest surrounding LNG development in the region were among the top five viewed items on the blog.

As well, Monday's City Council meeting provided a pair of issues of interest to our readers, while news of the activation of the Northwest Transmission Line also proved to be a popular item for the week.
