Blog Watching, Week ending December 13, 2015
A couple of notes from the City Council meeting also broke into the Top five items of the week, with interest in the result of the Stile Place Zoning question and some comments from the City related to infrastructure projects for 2016 delivering a strong number of readers over the week.
The search this week for a pair of boaters reported missing from Kitkatla was also an article which readers frequently returned to, while the travels of the Charles Hays Rainmakers Senior Boy's basketball team also proved to be a popular item over the course of the last seven days.
