Who Let the Dogs Out?

August 7, 2012

NEWPORT CITY – Who let the dogs out?
That’s the question three downtown merchants and the Newport City Council hope to answer with the assistance of cameras that point down Main Street.
The camera monitors are at the Newport City Police Department.
Debi Mead from the Fabric store expressed her concerns, during Monday night’s council meeting, that people allow their dogs to use Main Street as a bathroom.
Where the dogs are actually coming from is unknown, but the merchants believe some of the owners may live in the apartments above their shops.

August 7, 2012

Thought you were competing only in a Triathlon? Wrong. We had an open water swim going on and we had some very, very strong swimming going on in Lake Seymour.
We may not have had the wherewithal to recognize you at the Award Ceremony, (our woodal machine broke down and we didn’t have the times available yesterday afternoon). But all of you Aqua and Ollie and Swim Only participants were also in a swim competition (whether you knew it or not), and we are proud to announce the winners of the 3.5 mile Seymour Swim AND the 1.75 mile Seymour Swim.
