Moon Lake Road gets $2.2 million for safety fixes - Tbo.com

Monday, June 19, 2017

Do you want to be here in another month from now with some more dead? I don’t. I can’t get my daughter back. God forbid you don’t do something and we have more young lives cut off.”Outside the commission chamber, Bill Markou, Kimberlee’s father, questioned whether budget constraints were truly the reason the project was delayed.“It’s almost like you have Moon Lake on this side; you don’t have a very affluent community, and it’s like, they’re kind of ignored,” he said. “That, in itself, is wrong.”v vShortly after the girls’ deaths, Courtney’s father, Tim Little, erected a cross on the eastern portion of Moon Lake Road where their car came to rest.“I stood there in the rain on the side of the road putting the cross in, watching cars blast through there,” he said. “… Cars blasted through the collected water there hard enough to get me wet on the other side of the road where I was putting the cross in.”On Oct. 22, a single-car accident involving a Pasco Sheriff’s Office cruiser plowed over the cross.“That was hard enough to do once,” Little said. “I had to go back and pick up the pieces and move it further off the road.”Courtney’s mother, Christine Gilmore, and Gilmore’s husband, Mike, also addressed commissioners.On Aug. 26, Mike Gilmore came upon a wreck on the same portion of the Moon Lake Road on his way home from work.Justin Chichester, 22, was driving on the wet road when his car hydroplaned and slid into the path of an oncoming vehicle.Chicheste...

Monday, November 07, 2016

Beal's cousin. As of Sunday evening, the video was deleted from the group's Facebook page.She said the dispute was sparked by plainclothes police officers who cut off her daughter's vehicle from the procession and pointed a gun at her daughter, without identifying themselves as officers. That's what prompted Beal's involvement, she said.Tiffaney Boxley, Beal's mother, told the Tribune that her son was a father of two children and was engaged to be married. "Chicago police gunned my baby down like [he was] a vicious animal," she said.A Black Lives Matter poster is seen during a 2015 demonstration in Chicago.Source: Scott Olson/Getty ImagesChicago's Mount Greenwood neighborhood, where the incident took place, is a whiter and decisively more pro-police part of the city, as BLM activists and Beal's family found out Saturday evening.
