City council hears citizen's concern of buried hazardous material

Olga Lassmann lives on 305 N. Hoppe and loves the country life. But with recent events she is concerned for the well being of her family and neighbors alike.

During the city council meeting held on March 23, Lassmann was given the opportunity to express her concerns.

“We have a water well next to the creek. There is a lot of stuff being buried underground (i.e. oil, plastic, etc.). There was a trailer house that they completely tore up. They did have a backhoe and as far as I can tell they buried it all. Trailer houses have styrofoam, plastic, glass, etc. If it is buried, fumes will be coming up. It will affect us.”

Lassmann has lived there 37 years. “My husband has lived there 45 years and we raised our children there. We call it our little country home and we do not plan to move. We are concerned about the release of hazardous material and I hope that someone will do something about this,” Lassmann said.

Wildcat Band anxious to showcase effort

Things are continuing to move in the right direction for the Yorktown Wildcat Band. Just like with a steady crescendo in music, the band is gradually building up.

Director Vincent Furtado told the band members from the start of the school year, “Your attitude determines your altitude.”

It is about putting forth a team effort. This is not only true in the case of the band but in any aspect of these student’s lives.

Many facets have been fine tuned, including having instruments fixed due to frozen slides and other issues. From these important changes, the sound of the band is starting to become more full.

Furtado spoke of fun and improvement working hand-in-hand when he said, “The more fun you have, the more you want to improve, and the more you improve, the more fun you have.”
