Q: What happened to the improvements that were scheduled to be done at Lions Park? I thought they were supposed to put in a splash pad this past summer. I'm a former resident and while home this past weekend, I went check out the improvements at the park and was dissappointed to find nothing different than the last time I was there. –Karen from Attica

Q: I was glad to hear a while back that the city was going to repair the Camp Street underpass. The city spent all kinds of money on the Columbus and Hayes underpasses. They are very nice when they are all redone, but now the Columbus Avenue one is falling apart again. Is there any kind of regular maintenance programs on these repairs, such as early painting and upkeep? –Brad in Sandusky

Q: Mailbag, I enjoy the column. There's a recurring problem we have with out-of-date phone books. What are we to do with the old ones? Do they go with office paper, magazines, or newspapers in the current recycling bins? Or are phone books to be thrown in the trash? –Sandy in Marblehead
