Q: Recently, the West Gate has been backed up. Only two lanes have been open and the construction cones have been out choking the lanes down to the opposite two lanes that are open at the gate. This is a dangerous situation and an accident is very likely. My suggestion for a fix would be to ask the gate guards to open all three lanes before it is a necessity and to also ask that the construction crews to move the cones at the end of their work day. Thank you for your time.

Hill museum closed for maintenance

Financial class offered next week
Q: The entrance to the Hill AFB Exchange is a safety hazard. Exiting the Exchange is OK, but entry to the Exchange is mainly through the gas station. The Exchange should have another entrance on E Avenue right after the gas station without going through the back of the gas station. My suggestion is to remove the center area just after the gas station to allow the Exchange customers and pharmacy customers a safe way to get to the Exchange.

It’s time to spring forward, which means an extra hour of daylight in the evening. People should set their clocks forward one hour at 2 a.m. Sunday, March 8.

Author misidentified in Ployer Hill profile
The Hilltop Times incorrectly listed Aaron Clark, Hill AFB historian, as the author of last week’s page 2 article on Hill Air Force Base’s namesake, Ployer “Pete” Hill.

HILL AIR FORCE BASE — After a new five-story building opened here on Monday, state and federal officials say the west side of Hill Air Force Base should be bustling with activity for years to come. Hill officials opened a new 75,000-square-foot office building that will house military and civilian workers, as well as several defense contractors. The new building is the newest piece of the Falcon Hill National Aerospace Research Park development, an Air Force Enhanced Use Lease program that allows private entities to lease underused military land.
