If the project breaks ground after graduation, construction will erase some, if not all, of the Spartans' home football schedule next fall.

But instead of tying up loose ends, staff and councilors couldn’t even agree on where to start. “I can’t vote on numbers I don’t understand,” said Councilman Nezam Tooloee, as the council on Wednesday discussed how to approach several unresolved budget issues.

Days after heavy rains and washouts, traffic is still cut off to several neighborhoods. The parked cars lining the street might suggest a party. But it’s the aftermath of the party – a hillside mingling last week between the rainwater and soil beneath Crystal Springs Drive – that has turned the shoulder there into a temporary parking lot and the road itself into an impassible mess. “After the party,” said city worker Bruce Oyloe, “we do the cleanup.”

Second, the torrent was rushing through her daughter’s front yard. “In the 18 years I’ve been here,” Miller said, “I’ve never seen water like this.”
