Blog Watching, week ending January 18, 2015

The January return to Council Chambers for City Council, the listings of local eating establishments and Rainmaker Basketball topped our accounts for the week.

Civc matters were a focus this week, with items of interest from City Council collecting three spots in the top five viewed items of the week.  Concerns over the recording of council minutes, small business issues and some notes from the Mayor captured our readers attention this week.
