A driver chimed in on the complaints about construction zones between Deer Lake and Pasadena.
The man said he left Deer Lake airport about 2 a.m. recently to drive home to Corner Brook and there were signs dictating a 50 km/h speed limit that went on for kilometres on end.
He said the signs indicated it was a construction zone and threatened big fines for breaking the rules.
“There wasn’t a worker or a piece of heavy equipment to be seen anywhere. Can’t someone kick over the signs on their way home in the evening and tip them back up in the morning when work resumes?” he asked.
“Crawling along in these zones is irritating enough when there is work proceeding but it appears to be completely unnecessary in the dead of night,” he said.
A reader called with concerns over the availability, or lack thereof, of a useable events schedule on the Pepsi Centre’s website.
“All they have on the website is a schedule for September,” the caller said. “You want to get the schedule of what’s on the go. Here it is almost November and the schedule’s a month behind.
“No wonder they’re having problems there.” A check Tuesday afternoon showed no events at all.
Anyone who is a fan of nature should make it a point to get out on one of the rare sunny days we can expect in the next few weeks.
Trees in the area have reached their peak of colour and are a joy to behold. But the splendour likely won’t last long. Winds and colder temperatures will soon turn the orange, red and crimson to the dark of the looming winter.
