Blog Watching, Week ending February 8, 2015

Some extreme winter weather, impressive laps in the pool, a couple of committee opportunities and a letter from some senior level politicians highlight our listings of the five most read items of the last week.

The success of Sarah McChesney who is hauling in the medals for the Thomson Rivers University swim program captured the attention of the most readers this week,  ranking it high among our review from our week's work.

Not surprisingly, the weather featured high on that list as well, as a pair of accounts of the monster Northwest snow storm of the week also rattled off the view counts, the majority of them late Thursday and early Friday.

The City's quest for some committee members was a popular item of interest on the week, as was our look at a correspondence to Tourism Prince Rupert from NDP politicians Nathan Cullen and Jennifer Rice which cracked our top five items of the week.

Leading it all off this week however, a celebration of Sarah McChesney's success in the swimming pool and a review of the medal haul for the Prince Rupert swimmer.
