John RobertsBurnt Ends pitmaster hospitalized

John Roberts, our favorite bbq purveyor, was stricken with a severe case of pancreatitis late last month and has been hospitalized since then. He is making slow progress now, but will be out of work for an indefinite length of time.

If community members care to make a donation to help keep his health insurance paid up, a fund has been established at Sunset Science Park Credit Union, 1100 NW Murray.

John and his wife Laura appreciate all the good wishes they've been receiving from friends and family, and they miss participating in their regular activities. We all wish John a steady recovery.

sidewalkHeat expands concrete!

A section of sidewalk buckled on Saltzman Road during the recent late-June heat wave. Dave Schamp, Maintenance Division Manager of Washington County Land Use and Transportation, says, “Yes, we are aware and have had an inspector out there. This is likely caused by the heat. I don't know details of this particular situation, but have seen it occur in our area before. Sometimes the concrete contractor fails to install enough or proper expansion joints. Typically the expansion joint is made using an asphaltic felt material that allows the expanding concrete to compress it before doing damage. This was most likely caused by too few or improperly installed expansion joints.” The county should be sending a crew to repair the sidewalk soon.
