CityLink Providing Residential Wireless to Huning Highlands

Historically, if you wanted internet service in our neighborhood, you had fairly limited and fairly expensive options to choose from—Comcast and CenturyLink being the dominant offerings.

The options just got stronger by one—CityLink.

CityLink is providing residential wireless internet service for $29.95/month for 10 Mb/s upload and download speeds. No contract required, no equipment fees, no usage limits, no throttling. There is an installation fee starting at $99.95. For those interested in faster speeds, their 25 Mb/s service goes for $69.95, same terms as for the 10 Mb/s service. Contact information for them is provided on their website. Click here to go to their contact page.

Gravy

by Karla Thornton

As many of you may have noticed, one of the unique buildings in our neighborhood is undergoing renovations. A new and exciting restaurant, Gravy, is slated to open sometime in May. The old Milton’s restaurant on Central opened in 1964 as a Denny’s. The building was designed by the renowned architecture firm Armet Davis and Newlove out of southern California. The group is known for working in the “Googie” architecture style and designed buildings such as the Holiday Bowl and many roadside diners. The original sign will remain with the panels replaced with the new name.

Good Food Eat Here/Tobias White Catering, LLC

These ideas were behind the creation of his food truck, Good Food Eat Here, and his catering business.

The menu at Good Foot Eat Here is a mixture of raw vegan and

Lovelace Hospital

The main eight story building that faces Martin Luther King Blvd. had its color changed from a dingy white to a pleasant rusty brown to blend with adjacent buildings on their site. We congratulate the staff for this welcome change.

On June 27th a facilitated meeting was held at the Martineztown Senior Center to discuss some other changes now in the planning stages. They will be improving the main north entrance with decorative paving and landscaping, adding parapets to disguise mechanical equipment. One parapet will add seven and a half feet to a small area of the north roofline. These changes will not be visible from MLK Blvd. New way-finding signage is planned to assist patients and visitors. Rob Dickson suggested that signage be carefully researched for the best effect.
