Flashing lights needed to protect Kalama students

I was very happy that someone finally listened to my plea regarding the safety of our kids and neighbors that utilize the Eddie Tam Park.

I was assured that the flashing lights would be installed for Kalama Intermediate before school started. But, as of Aug. 26, there still are no lights. Our kids have to cross two busy streets to get to school. And one of the crossings has no crossing guard. I don’t know how much more I need to stress to county officials that this is very dangerous for everyone.

Do we finally get those lights when something tragic happens or do we wait for an election when promises are made good so incumbents look good to the community?
