Snow days are really fun for kids….but maddening for parents who are left finding alternative childcare methods – which sometimes means missing work or toting bored children to the office.
Like bears coming out of hibernation, warm temperatures on Tuesday brought people out of their homes and offices to enjoy the sunshine. Walkers, runners, and these Ultimate Frisbee players were seen at Lee Newton Park just after lunch. Temperatures are expected to remain just below or above
60 degrees through the weekend.

Mayor says technology also will decrease fuel consumption
City Hall is watching. With a new GPS system, Jasper employees like Tara Benson can pinpoint where any of their vehicles are located. The system also keeps a log of vehicles’ travels and speed.
