5:14 pm
local churches sprung to action- through a program called...'adopt a block' - the idea ... to get the faith community and its leaders to interact with neighbors - get to know them- start conversations.. that could ultimately lead to change and put an end to violence. its a good starting point but think about it, whats going to be the after caredr andrew calhoun says he's seen it time and time again-- it starts out strong.. but that wasn't the case at grace fellowship church. i think when you dont quite have a model like we have here, it starts up for a moment then it begins to fizzle away, they now call it 'adopt a neighborhood'... and it focuses on the grover and williamsburg heights neighborhoods. you got to have a forum where people can talk about things and say im not alone in this whole journey thats going

'you have to do this during the heat of the summer so you can plan for the winter.' presenters from snowex, an industry leader when it comes to ice control, are on a tour of the northern united states, preaching the gospel of salt brine to local plow companies and contractors.

5:25 pm
before the fact with salt brine. then when it snows, the brine creates a slushy bottom layer thats easier to plow away. 'having our plow trucks go through and have clean pavement after their first swipe through a parking lot really does benefit us and helps maintain safe pavement for our customers.' 'that preventative approach requires about tenth the overall cost.' beyond the financial benefits of using less salt, the diluted mixture is also less destructive to the environment - a real concern after decades of over- salting that seeps into the ground water. 'you have high levels of contamination in your water. its coming from salt. and our industry is the industry thats doing it.' hence seminars like this one. an industry trying to find a solution, through liquid solutions. carl deffenbaugh,
