There’s a new game on the Bristol School playground that school kids are going “gaga” over.
Played with a soft foam ball, gaga ball is a mix of dodgeball and four-square, played in an octagonal enclosure. The Bristol School PTA hired Scherrer Construction to make two of the pits, as they are officially called.
Today’s problem: Karl Atanasoff wrote, “I just saw someone damage their tire. (The) holes are huge and getting worse daily. They filled in (potholes) with white rock last time we talked, which lasted about three days.”
Atanasoff is referring to a roadway just west of 27th Avenue and just south of 18th Street. It runs east-west, past Taco Bell to the north and a vacant lot to the south. It eventually intersects the parking area for the Glenwood Crossings shopping center at a two-way stop. Atanasoff wrote, “I understand potholes are part of every spring but these however have been there for YEARS and are numerous as well as dangerous.”
