When was the last time you volunteered, and how did it make you feel?

VIDEO: Phase II of Quail Crossing Boulevard project

The Quail Crossing Boulevard project is nearing completion, and phase II, running from Old Nogales Highway to the Anza Trailhead, is the final phase of the project.

It includes a bridge stretching across about 200 feet of the Santa Cruz River, a single two-way multi-use asphalt path for biking and pedestrians and a new traffic signal at Old Nogales Highway and the entrance to Quail Creek. 

The project is scheduled to be completed by January 2023. 

Take a drive along the new stretch:

Walden Grove had its best defensive performance of the season in a 34-6 romp past Pueblo on homecoming night on Friday. 

I got this shot (above photo) of the team celebrating in the locker room after the game.
